Well, it’s January 7th, and Sleepy Creepy Corrupt Slow Joe Biden has officially been confirmed as the Fake President-Elect by the entire broken and corrupt system of government. Also, there were actual outright riots in Washington, D.C., and four people are dead. One was a young woman shot by law enforcement officers.
Let’s not mess about – this is horrible. Pretty much nobody wanted loss of life yesterday – well, (almost) nobody on the Right, anyway. The Left has always made it perfectly clear that they view the deaths and maimings of “right-wing nutjobs” to be perfectly acceptable in the name of furthering the Revolution.
Unfortunately, I don’t think they banked on the Right getting violent and turning on them. They’ve been too used to a supine, cowardly, weak, and fragmented Right breaking and running at the first sign of concerted violent opposition. Now they’re beginning to realise just how angry Trump’s support base really is over the fact that the election was stolen from them – from us.
My friends, I lived through a political revolution in my early teens. I saw the last days of the Suharto government in Indonesia before my family fled to the old country to escape the rapidly escalating violence and bloodshed in Jakarta. I watched Suharto step down in 1998 on a small TV screen in my grandparents’ house.
The pictures and video that I am watching today of the scenes in the Capitol Building remind me of that – except that the people are protesting in favour of the guy in power, because he stands up for them.
And speaking of that man… His Most Illustrious, Noble, August, Benevolent, and Legendary Celestial Majesty, the God-Emperor of Mankind, Donaldus Triumphus Magnus Astra, the First of His Name, the Lion of Midnight, may the Lord bless him and preserve him, absolutely called it when he said that January 6th would be wild.
Yesterday, he got up on stage at the “Save America” rally in D.C. and gave an absolutely and utter BARNBURNER of a speech – he’s very good at doing that:
Shout out to reader and FotS Magister Ludi, who was there on the ground. He sent me this picture from the steps of the Capitol itself:
The never-to-be-sufficiently-cursed whorenalists and presstitutes of the mainstream (((media))), on the other hand, showed exactly why people like me want to see them tried by military tribunals for treason, with their sentences carried out INSTANTLY via shooting, hanging, or (my preferred solution) impalement without grease.
I’m not going to display their craven and pathetic clips here on my site. You are most welcome to go digging around in the cesspits of YouTube to find them – it’s not difficult, virtually EVERY news organisation in the entire WORLD has clips up right now telling you that Trump supporters rampaged through the Capitol attempting a coup and Trump egged them on.
That tells me everything that I need to know about them. The (((media))) traitors and hucksters are TERRIFIED. They are in mortal fear right now. They believed that their collusion with Big Tech, the Daemoncrats, and their own kind would result in total hegemonic control over all aspects of government, the media, industry, and the culture.
They didn’t expect anyone to fight back. They certainly didn’t expect the Right to become violent.
Now, I’ve been arguing for quite some time that those on the Right who think that a violent war against the Left would be short, sharp, and easy, are absolutely delusional. And I can see that I was right. I’m heartened to see that a lot of Trump supporters are beginning to understand the reality of war on the ground now. They are rapidly lrealising that the entire Establishment is against them, and that the Left has a significant edge on them in terms of quick and effective mobilisation of shock troops.
That is why the storming of the Capitol was such an effective and radical statement.
Think about what happened yesterday. A small mob of people broke through the barricades surrounding the Houses of Congress and shut down proceedings completely, for hours, until riot police and the National Guard had to be called in to clear them out.
That’s what the Right can accomplish with a small cadre of dedicated and angry volunteers who are mad as hell and won’t stand for fraud and deception anymore.
Now imagine that, scaled up to millions of Trump supporters around the country, ready and willing and able to engage in long-term grinding attrition warfare. The Left cannot withstand that.
Admittedly, the levels of violence on display in the Capitol yesterday are NOTHING compared to what the Left unleashed via the Black Looming Menace and the Pantifags over the summer. But the shock value of yesterday’s events lies in the fact that a small mob forced the entire Senate to flee in disarray.
And now we know exactly who is on President Trump’s side, and who is not.
Vice President Pence cucked and ran. Most of the Senators who once supported Trump have turned on him. He is alone and outnumbered by enemies on every side.
Perhaps this is the end for him – and perhaps it is not. We will know soon enough.
The one and only (((media))) voice that actually bothered to explain things in a calm and rational fashion – insofar as is possible right now – is of course #BasedTucker, and even he doesn’t get it right:
Look here, Tuck, THERE IS NO WAY TO FIX THIS.
Again, I say this as someone who has lived through the overthrow of an actual government. Once events reach this point, THERE IS NO GOING BACK. The only path forward for America is bloody and terrible rupture.
Mark my words, boys, and mark them well, right now:
THOUSANDS OF YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS ARE GOING TO DIE over the coming weeks and months as America tears itself apart. MILLIONS will probably die before the conflagration ends.
There is NO happy ending possible now. All that can happen is outright and open civil war, of a kind and on a scale that will make the War Between the States look like a minor family squabble by comparison. This is going to be horrific and horrible. Make NO mistake about that.
And, y’know what? It’s about bloody time it happened. It’s high time that America got a solid dose of the very medicine that it has forced down the throats of other countries for decades:
A crowd of protesters stormed Congress protesting a presidential election they claimed had been fraudulent. When this happened in Serbia in 2000, the US called it democracy. When it happened in Washington, DC – not so much.
Scenes from the US Capitol on Wednesday, as protesters backing President Donald Trump disrupted the joint session of Congress meeting to certify the election of Democrat Joe Biden, looked very much like Belgrade in October 2000.
The sight was later repeated in Ukraine – twice, in 2004 and 2014 – Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, and several Central Asian former Soviet republics. On every occasion, the US backed the “people power,” because American NGOs and embassies were supporting what became known as “color revolutions.”
Same thing happened in 2011 with the “Arab Spring” that started in Tunisia and then burned its way across North Africa to the Persian Gulf. In some places it “succeeded,” overthrowing decades-old governments. In others it failed, setting off wars in Libya and Syria and blood on the streets of Bahrain. Again, the US cheered this on as democracy – except for Bahrain, which hosts a major naval base.
More recently, the US denounced as illegitimate the presidential elections in Belarus, Bolivia and Venezuela. While Minsk and Caracas managed to resist – and got sanctioned for it – the “democrats” in La Paz were successful for a while, but ended up losing the vote last year.
Way back in 2004, the Guardian wrote approvingly about how the US has created a “slick” operation of “engineering democracy through the ballot box and civil disobedience,” developing since Belgrade a “template for winning other people’s elections.”
Now the same mainstream media that slavishly followed the State Department line in denouncing elections elsewhere as “rigged” and color revolutions as spontaneous democracy are clutching their pearls when Americans who believe their election was stolen take to the streets and storm their Capitol.
Ah, but this election wasn’t stolen, they’d say – it was pure as driven snow, “most secure ever,” all the experts who told us for four years the previous one was “hacked by Russia” tell us so! And Joe Biden won the most votes in history while hardly leaving his basement. Whether you believe this official narrative about the US election or not doesn’t really matter, however. Partisan myopia simply won’t let people understand the magnitude of what is on display here: utter moral bankruptcy of the entire US political and media establishment.
Republicans and Democrats alike used “color revolutions” as a political weapon for years, preaching democracy even as their astroturfed coups snuffed out any vestiges of it that might have developed organically. Over the past year, they’ve done so at home as well, using Covid-19 lockdowns to abolish elementary constitutional rights, culminating with changing the electoral rules to better serve “our democracy,” defined as whatever gets them power.
What did they think people would do when all avenues of airing their grievances were closed off? Meekly submit – or take a page out of the same playbook the politicians and the media spent 20 years celebrating?
This is what American foreign policy CELEBRATES in other countries. And when the governments of other countries – like Russia and Belarus, which are led by strong and capable men who are thoroughly unimpressed by American posturing – resist those attempts at overthrow and subversion, they are labelled by the American Establishment as “anti-democratic”.
Yet now the same forces are tearing America apart, and somehow it’s… wrong? What ridiculous hypocrisy.
As for what happens next… I don’t know. I’m not smart or well informed enough to figure that out. But I know someone who is – and that is none other than our beloved and dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH) Vox Day, who reckons that the God-Emperor is almost certainly completing a double-envelopment of his own right now:
If you want more insight into the whole affair, read the posts about Pence cucking and running, the God-Emperor’s call to his troops to go home in peace, and a field report from one of the Ilk about how Trump likely knew all along that Pence and the rest of the Senate would sell him out.
Based on the available evidence, President Trump has precisely two alternatives, as I stated yesterday:
- Cuck and run: In this scenario, he does not invoke the National Insurrection Act, he does not cross the Potomac and start hanging traitors off the bridges, and he simply goes meekly and quietly into the night. He will almost certainly be arrested, thrown in prison for the rest of his life, and lose his fortune. His family will also be imprisoned or at the very least driven into bankruptcy and out of the country. He will lose EVERYTHING – simply because his nerve failed him at the crucial moment.
- Cross the Potomac: In the other scenario, he calls up the National Guard and the Marine Corps, marches a few divisions into the Capitol, suspends rule of law and habeas corpus, and becomes a dictator for about 6 months – that is the specific period granted to him as Chief Executive under the National Insurrection Act. He then has six months to sort out the giant catastrof**k that was the 2020 election, either by re-running the whole thing, or by executing the traitors who caused the problems in the first place.
Brothers, we live in very strange times. I used to be a libertarian, which means that I opposed with every fibre of my being the notion of a king or tyrant taking power and carving a bloody path through the country to keep things orderly and contained. But libertarianism is not a workable ideology because it breaks down in precisely such situations as this one – and if you know anything about history, you will quickly realise that there is nothing particularly unusual or extreme about the current period. America has been through this sort of thing before and will go through it again.
The only question right now is: what will the God-Emperor do?
Will he prove himself to be the Lion of the North as we always thought?
Or will he turn into a mouse, proving his critics right – that he is nothing more than a Tweet-obsessed blowhard who let Javanka dictate his most important policies and caved whenever he actually needed to show strength?
We have 13 days in which to find out. Trump has a chance to become a true God-Emperor by taking power, by force if necessary – or to go down in disgrace as the greatest failure who ever aspired to take the brass ring.
As Magister Ludi wrote to me in his email:
“Did my part in DC. May God grant the God Emperor the strength to do his part.”
Pray for the God-Emperor, brothers. He’s going to need it. Stock up on supplies and be prepared for the war to come. Things will explode faster than you can possibly imagine, no matter what happens.
UPDATE: I guess we didn’t have to wait long to find out. Based on what he’s saying here, Trump MAY HAVE caved:
President Donald Trump said he would participate in an orderly transition of power to President-elect Joe Biden after Congress certified the electoral college votes early Thursday morning.
“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” Trump wrote in a statement.
We’ll see what happens. As with all things Trump-related, hold fire for 48 hours to see what happens.
I keep reading “Cross with Rubicon”. With what?
He has no legions. He depends on his reports – cabinet officers and department heads, who all look to have betrayed him. The sellout was as breathtaking as the cheating.
And what is the military to do, exactly? Muscle past secret service and security? to do what?
I’d like to think this is all part of a strategy. But it’s starting not to look that way. Deep State gonna Deep State.
We’ll see. He may wind up victorious. He also may not. And if not, hopefully he won’t be made to do a struggle session.
And what does it matter, really? Thanks to the cheating and now, betrayals (of us, not him), this country is ungovernable and set to explode. Does it really matter who’s piloting the ship that’s on fire and sinking?
Let Ho Jo take that hot potato and watch the place burn around them.
A friend of mine — who lived thru WW2 in Europe — said over 30 years ago that what this country needs is a benevolent dictator. I’d say even if it only lasts the 6 months necessary to clean the stables.
At this point, cleaning out the stables would require hanging, shooting, impaling, or crucifying roughly three-quarters of the entire political and technocratic class. That’s several hundred thousand people, at minimum.
I’m not complaining or arguing against it, mind. I’m just saying that the level of the corruption is so deep that even a minimal job of cleaning up would require tens of thousands of casualties to force the others to get in line. And that’s enough to give even the most bloodthirsty dictator – well, short of a Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, or Ceaucescu – second thoughts.
“I used to be a libertarian …”
I’m an agorist who openly admits that the reason we don’t have agorism today is that it failed and was replaced by the State.
Insofar as the State being better, it is clearly better at terrorism, especially of the more personal kind where the State picks you up by the ankles to shake you down for shekels or tributes in flesh.
The reason I support agorism is that perhaps we can develop it to such a point where it’s a viable replacement for “democracy”, which is in danger quotes because democracy really consists of a mob-supported kleptocracy.
Once you understand that there is no “democracy” without an emergent socialism, and that “democratic socialism” is the eventual end, then you learn to distrust democracy because it provides few benefits while it’s operable and inevitably embraces its own destruction.
What I most certainly am not is one of these Murray Rothbard, AJ Nock, or FA Hayek parrots who believes their relatively simple measures would ever provide deliverance from the terrorism of the State.
Their level of political and social technology is not sufficiently developed to provide a workable replacement for the State, and any honest “libertarian”, “former libertarian”, anarcho-capitalist, agorist, etc. eventually has to admit this is the case.
Some people get shocked into this in America after realising what utter hacks Ron Paul and Rand Paul happen to be as a matter of fact, what an outright sham the so-called “Libertarian Party” amounts to as a mostly self-contradicting mass of feely-touchy politics, while others go the longer intellectual route and try to settle their philosophical scores with weak conservativism, “minarchy”, and so on.
What is clear is this: ultimately in the midst of the fighting that is to come, the current consensus representation of the State disappears, but unfortunately it tends to be replaced with a new consensus representation of the State.
If there were a better option, this wouldn’t happen, but because there isn’t a better option for now, it does.
I’d love to tell people there’s a way out of this ten generation cycle of building it up and burning it down, but there isn’t one, and maybe that’s because people who believe in mob rule à la “democracy” essentially deserve to be trapped by these cycles.
One thing I believe is essential to eventually breaking out of this “democratic” mould is the development of multiple types of freely interchangeable currency that exist beyond the control of individual nations, regions, groups, or some bloated idea of “world government”.
Without the ability to run the money printer into severe deficit financing, how would the failing democracies of the world ever get their funds on to conduct small wars of distraction?
As the democracies burn, they all look for deliverance through “orange revolutions”.
It’s hilarious watching Americans try to develop non-operational cover stories for the fact that the CIA got tired of foreign operations and decided they’d have a go at regime change at home.
Who could have ever thought that possible? [laugh] 🙂
As for the “benevolent dictator” or “temporary fascism” scenario, this is what I ask the Leftists I meet: my family has survived such a thing in the past during several periods, and has even joined up with it to push the broom so to speak, but could you?
Ultimately the look of abject horror tells you everything you need to know: they don’t have so much as a clue as to a workable survival strategy and would rather engage in point-and-shriek campaigns until they’re pushed up against the wall.
I’m really enjoying this emergent IFF feature that’s displaying so clearly in the Left these days.
It even catches out some of the Left who are LARPing as the Right.
I’ve known the Republican Party was useless ever since I started really paying attention to politics in the Bush II days, but except for one time when I wanted to punish our sitting senator for being a traitorous “maverick” (successfully, I might add), I kept voting for them anyway even when they sucked (McCain, Romney) because I was convinced that the other side was worse. Now? I am DONE. Those cucks couldn’t trip over each other fast enough to condemn Trump and all of us by extension yesterday, and if I ever do vote again (which I probably won’t since every election in a blue or purple state will be rigged going forward), it’s going to be for someone like Pat Buckman from LTC Kratman’s “Caliphate” who promises vengeance and then delivers a thousandfold.
I don’t care if there are a few good apples like Cruz and Nunes in there – GOP DELENDA EST. After yesterday’s incredible display of cuckery, that entire party needs to burn to the ground and have the earth salted behind it. Frankly I don’t care if it leads to 20 years of Communist rule. We’re going to have that already with China Joe, assuming the GE doesn’t cross the Potomac.
I’m not quite at the “burn it all down by voting for Democrats” phase, but I’m getting there.
Oh I’m well past that. Burn it all down.
A friend of mine living in Florida says that he has absolutely no loyalty toward the USA anymore. He is completely loyal to the Constitution and to the idea of the USA, but the reality is one that he hates with every fibre of his being and which he will no longer obey.
I’d say that’s about the right attitude. Burn down the Republican Party. Let the USA collapse under the Daemoncrats. Then, when the time comes, turn them over to military tribunals for expedited processing.
Off topic: I enjoyed episode 62 (podcast). Reminder to your readers/listeners, you can download the MP3 and carry it elsewhere.
The “fight” is not just on one person’s shoulders, it is something we do everywhere.
Yes, it is true, the burden of the war is one that we all carry.
