how do civil wars happen?

friday, july 10th, 2020

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

The Mueller investigation was about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it's not the first time they've done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn't really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There's a pattern here.

The old world is dying, and the new world struggles to be born; now is the time of monsters.

What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don't accept the results of any election that they don't win. It means they don't believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections. That's a civil war.

There's no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.

This isn't dissent. It's not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they're the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don't win, what you want is a dictatorship.

Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity. In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society.

Your very own dictatorship.

The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it's inherently illegitimate The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can't scratch his own back without his say so, that's the civil war.

Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that's not the system that runs this country. The Democrat's system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.

If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. He can use the IRS as his own police force and imprison citizens who speak against him. He can provide guns and money (Fast and Furious) (Iran nuclear deal) to other countries to support his own agenda, and watch while one of America's Ambassador's is dragged through the streets and murdered doing nothing to aid our citizens. His power is unlimited. He's a dictator. But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can't do anything. He isn't even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has 'discretion' to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn't even have the 'discretion' to reverse him. That's how the game is played. That's how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn't yet won that particular fight.

We are losing our rights in this country and until you stand up to those who would diminish your freedom and liberty, it’s going to continue to happen.

When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren't even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries. The Constitution has something to say about that. Whether it's Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship.

Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can't serve in it if you're not a member. If you haven't been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren't in the club. And Trump isn't in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who aren't in the club with him.

Now we're seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.

That's not a free country.

Communism is not love. Communism is a hammer which leftists use to crush their enemy.

It's not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an 'insurance policy' against Trump winning the election. It's not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It's not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It's not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn't supposed to win did.

Have no doubt, we're in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist socialist Democrat professional government.

Well now Pilgrims and Patriots, having read the above, I suggest two things: forward this very timely, very important analysis to those whom you believe think like you do (and those that don't) and ask them to read it.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 7:30a on Friday, it was already 77° outside – had a couple smokes in the garage while the coffee brewed, did my DR (Type 1 Diabetic Routine - Blood Sugar Level Test and Sliding-Scale Insulin Shot), applied the CBD Hemp Ointment to my neck and shoulder, had breakfast, took my morning 16 pill regimen, and checked the weather and news. Heat forecast was for between 90-85°, so I decided to just stay inside. There was no valid reason to go out.

By 10:15, temps had jumped to 86° and still climbing. 119° on my back patio and 97° on my front porch, even with the overhang. Only 87° in my garage, so that's where I had to have some smokes. Dave called and wanted to stop by at 5p, and buy two of my firearms, one (2012 Kimber 1911 .45cal ACP) of which will take a Fed BATF Transfer to complete, next Tuesday, with my other friend and banker, Travis, who will also need to do a BATF Transfer for my pristine Colt Trooper MKIII .357 Magnum. Half of my gunsafe is now empty, and my best pieces are gone, except for my personal Kimber "Eclipse Target II" 1911 .45cal ACP, several Class III AR-15s and suppressors, my first rifle, a 1958 Mossberg 144LS bolt action that Dad bought for me to shoot NRA competition in the Boy Scouts, and my Grandpa Shelley's 10ga single barrel shotgun. Kind of makes me sad, after collecting such choice pieces for the past 62yrs.

Mossberg 144LS .22cal

I did my midday DR, had a light lunch and stayed inside, watching some IndyCar practice and qualifying, for tomorrow's two races. Dave stopped by at 5:30p, and after we did paperwork, he left with the Beowulf .50cal, and I have the evening DR at 7:30 and a light dinner. I had some utility bills to pay online, watched POTUS Trump's trip to Mt Rushmore and fireworks, did the nightly DR and called it Yankee Doodle.

Up at 7:30a on Saturday, and it was already 82°. I'm getting a case of "cabin fever", now. I did the usual morning DR routine, had coffee and breakfast, did the 16 pill regimen, and ran a couple errands, washed, waxed and vacuumed-out the Jeep, at the local DIY Carwash.

A fanatic is a person who won't change their mind, and can't change the subject.

After the 11:45a DR and a light lunch, I went on a "secret mission" to Gettysburg Battlefield, just 35mins west, on Rt 30. No details. I told no one, in case something unexpected happened. Now, everyone knows, since the lowlife subhuman Antifa punk filth didn't show-up. A leftist idiot did, tried to spray paint a statue, and the Bikers beat him to a pulp, while we all watched and smiled, including DHS, FBI, Park Police, State Police and Local Cops. The leftist cowards and scumbags, were paid by Soros, to do this no-show hoax. I only stayed just over 1½ hours, due to the oppressive heat and humidity.

Back by 2:30p, I had to rest and drink huge amounts of icewater, after being outside (and inside the Jeep's AC) in the heat and humidity, so I took a shower, got some clean clothes on, and took a 3½hr snooze on the LR couch. I shouldn't have been out in that heat/humidity, but I felt a duty to be there. After a late DR and dinner, the local neighborhood fireworks and noise got worse. It was July 4th, after all. I watched "Expedition Unknown" and "Ancient Aliens" until 10p, took my nightly DR and pills, and unplugged early for the night.

Thanks for your help, Bikers!

Up at 7a on Sunday, still tired from my "secret trip" yesterday, I had a couple smokes in the hot and steamy garage, opened the garage door to let in some cooler air, did the morning DR, had Kona Coffee and a light breakfast, morning pills, started laundry and got ready to watch my first F-1 Grand Prix, in Austria. IT SUCKED! BLM (Black Lives Matter) FILTH had taken over F-1 with "We Drive As One", "Black Lives Matter" and "End Racism" t-shirts for all there, half the drivers knelt at the starting line, and proclaimed "End CO2 Pollution. IT WAS TOTAL FUCKING BULLSHIT AND MY LAST F-1 RACE, FOREVER! Hopefully, IndyCars and IMSA won't cave to one sambo scumbag (Lewis Hamilton) within their ranks, or I'll quit watching all auto racing, as I have with F-1 and NOOSE-Car.

Lee had stopped-by to watch the F-1 race, as usual, and we were both sickened by the additional announcement that all F-1 engines would be electric within 4-5yrs, to cut out CO2 emissions. MORE FUCKING BULLSHIT!

I did the midday DR, had a light lunch and watched History's Marathon, "The Cars That Made America", "The Food That Built America" and "America: Our Defining Hours", until 11:30p, did the nightly DR and pill regimen, and got things ready for a busy morning, before crashing for the night.

Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Up at 7a on Monday, it was going to be another stinker – very hot and humid – of a week. I had a couple smokes, did the morning DR, and had a light breakfast and coffee. I posted the "Chris Plante Show" to FR, left for Rite Aid Pharmacy to p/u waiting Rxs and drove to downtown York to drop-off special-tipped Hornady .357 Magnum Ammo to my attorney, for the Big Boy Classic .357 Magnum Lever Action Rifle, that I'd sold him last week. Then back home, and into the AC.

High for the day was 97°, right around 12noon, as I did the midday DR and had crabcakes for lunch. With the humidity, the so-called Heat Index was 1137°. One of the HOA Exec Board members stopped-by and asked me to look at one of the Chinese/Korean Dogwoods, which was planted last Fall. The lawnmower guys ran over the garden hose, which was watering the tree, and it is suffering from lack of water and heat exposure. We got new hoses, flagged the hoses with orange tape, and started the re-watering process. Rite Aid called with another ready Rx, and I drove over to the store.

A ***Severe Thunderstorm Watch*** was posted on all local media, for between 3-11p, with damaging wind and hail, so I'll get my Jeep HEMI inside the garage, as usual. After the evening DR and dinner, I watched new episodes of "American Pickers", checked the Accu-Weather maps and saw the t-storms gathering just to our northwest. They hit us around 7:30 and continued until 10p. I did the nightly DR, pill regimen, and called it a night at 11.

Up at 8a on Tuesday, I did the usual morning DR and pill routines, had coffee and breakfast, and started getting the files, revolver, ammo, paperwork and semi-auto pistol, for a trip down to Freedom Armory, this evening at 6p. I posted the "CP Show" to FR, and got a call from PSU-Hershey Medical Center's GI Dept, for next Thursday. I checked the weather and news, and found this unbelievable article. Amazing, isn't it?

After the midday DR and lunch, I grabbed a 2hr snooze, watched "American Pickers" Marathon and got ready for Dave and Travis to arrive, and I'd take the Colt .357 Magnum and Limber 1911 .45cal down to Freedom Armory to do the transfer with the PA State Police, collect the cash for the final sales and finish-up my paperwork on those two firearms. The transfer was done in record time, and we got back to my condo, finished-up the details and I helped load their vehicles with lots of ammo and accessories, for both guns. Truth be told, I miss all the choice specimen firearms I've sold over the past 2 weeks, but they all went to good people, who will use and care for them, as I have over the past many years. I still have my Class III AR-15 SBR 5.56mm (Short Barrel Rifle) firearm, suppressor (silencer), Grandpa's 10ga Shelley Family shotgun, and my old .22cal target/varmint rifle, AR-10 7.62x51mm (.308cal), an AR-15 .223cal, and my daily Kimber 1911 .45cal ACP left.

I did the nightly DR, pill regimen, watched "American Pickers" Marathon until after midnight, and called it quits. Morning would soon be here, and I had errands to get done.

Awake at 6a on Wednesday, I tried but couldn't get back to sleep. After the usual routines, coffee and breakfast, I had errands to get done. Food shopping at Weis Market, visit the bank to deposit all that money from the past 8 days of firearm sales, drop-off my 2020 Estimates State Tax check at the USPS, and p/u some waiting Rx at Rite Aid. Temps reached 96°, so I decided to stay-in for the afternoon. A 75yr T-Storm hit us at 6;15p, with 3" of rain and some light hail, in a short period. I rushed to get the Jeep into the garage and got soaked in the process. Hey, it's only water.

I had Chicken Parmesan and Spaghetti Marinara for dinner and watched the news, as "Expedition Unknown" was still doing reruns, and I've had enough of reruns of all shows. A new "EU" show came on at 9p, and I watched until 11, but called it quits after nodding-off. Tomorrow's another day.

Awake and up at 7:30a on Thursday, I had a couple of smokes while the coffee brewed, did the morning DR, had a light breakfast and coffee, checked the day's upcoming weather and breaking news. Sherry had new doors being installed on her home, so we canceled our 1p walk at the York Galleria, and my 5th Cousin, Tom, stopped-by to p/u our 1920s Shelley Family 10ga Shotgun, which I gifted to him, and look at the few rifles I have left. After he left, I did my midday DR, had a Ham Salad Sandwich & Chips and Rotini Pasta Salad, for lunch. I posted the "Rush Show" graphics to FR, and just relaxed inside, for the afternoon. It was already 91° by 1p, and the humidity from last evening's 3" rain deluge, was oppressive.

Swell, we have a Hurricane forming, just off the East Coast. Exactly what we need, is more water, heat and humidity. I ran a coiuple errands, left the Jeep HEMI V8 outside toi let the massive engine's heat dissapate, unloaded groceries and some Rxs, and stayed in the AC for the afternoon. After the evening R and dinner, I watched History's "Ancient Aliens" reruns from 2009 and 2010, until 11:30, did the nightly DR and called it a week.

Idiotic PC Name Changes.

I agree with our Native American population. I am highly jilted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins.

One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.

Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white folk.

The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives.

I am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh Pirates!

Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.

The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our children.

The Milwaukee Brewers. Well, that goes without saying. Wrong message to our children.

So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves.

And for you die-hard Oregon State fans, with all of this in mind, I'd suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than the "Beavers" (especially when they play Southern California). Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers?

I always love your articles and I generally agree with them. As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington DC.

Is America headed for civil war? Of course it is....

The political left is a tool for a greater agenda. They are being used as a weapon of chaos by globalist interests.

This is not “conspiracy theory”, this is conspiracy fact.

Millions of dollars have poured into Antifa and BLM related groups through elitist donors like George Soros and his Open Society Foundation as well as the Ford Foundation.

Globalist institutions like these have been influencing the extreme left and promoting identity politics for DECADES.

This is openly admitted.

What we are witnessing in 2020 is simply the culmination of a half-century long propaganda campaign that created the modern feminist movement, victim group status, entitlement culture, etc.

The reason for the agenda should be obvious: Chaos creates fear. Fear creates division and crisis.

And, crisis creates opportunity (as globalist Rahm Emanuel once bragged).

Meaning, the extreme left is going to start a war because that's exactly what the global elites created them for.

Now, some might suggest that this places conservatives in a Catch-22 position; if we don't fight back then we will look weak.

We will be culturally isolated and eventually overrun and wiped from the history books.

If we do fight back we will be giving the globalists what they want – A civil war that will tear America apart.

When the left comes for us (and they will), the fight has to be won by us, not government.

We cannot hand even more power to government in the name of security.

We cannot become the fascists the leftists accuse us of being.

Every Socialist/Communist program has included rewriting of history, removal of models of outstanding individual effort (statues, and monuments), and then they come for the non-conformists and intellectuals.

The fundamental lie of Socialism/Communism is to share the wealth.

In reality, it leads to share the misery, especially when they run out of other people's money.

There is nothing Democratic about the process; it is based strictly on power and control, and lies.
