The last half-decade has been an eye-opener for me. No sooner did 5 fools in black robes discover a right for two men to marry then that right was being used to target Christians who refused to participate in the neo-pagan rite of homosexual marriage. Bakers in Oregon were sued and their property confiscated. A baker in Colorado was sued, won his Supreme Court case, and is now being persecuted again by the state of Colorado for refusing to bake a cake celebrating transgenderism. Ministers have been sued for refusing to perform homosexual marriages. Meanwhile, the government’s services to the public continue to decline. The roads are rubble. Hordes of homeless haunt our cities. Illegal immigrants flood-in and murder. I’ve lived through disastrous fires that were preventable. I’ve watched my state threaten secession and fight with an elected president. Finally, I’ve watched a Deep State coup by our federal agencies after they unsuccessfully colluded to elect Hillary Clinton. It is to these federal agencies we now turn.
Last night, I attended a webinar on infiltration. The presenter gave a case study on the Bundy take-over of the federal building in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The presenter gave weighty proof that at least 50% of Bundy’s group were federal infiltrators and informants, including the guys standing to right and left of this speaker.
The speaker went on to describe another Utah militia member loosely-affiliated with the Bundys who was also infiltrated and was later convicted of trying to blow up a federal building. The presenter pointed out that these people were responsible for their own actions but the infiltrators vectored their targets into these actions through encouragement. The government simultaneously uses its targets for propaganda purposes. The presenter said that much of the militia movement, even the people offering prepper training in firearms, is infiltrated. I wondered how it was legal for the government to guide and vector people into actions they otherwise wouldn’t commit. It is apparently perfectly legal, but obviously highly unethical. Many of our federal agencies are very close to becoming a Cheka.
I further wondered why the government spends so much time on these kooks when the drug cartels, Chinese, and Islamists are such a problem. It finally dawned on me: McVeigh. McVeigh blew up a federal building in the mid-90s in response to the Clinton administration and federal bureaucracy shooting a bunch of people at Ruby Ridge and barbecuing people in Waco. He was painted as a militia member and definitely looks the part. Even though this was almost a quarter-century ago, the government always fights the last war. Our military, for example, is still set up to fight a two-front war against two nation-states as we did in WWII. We’ve never learned the lesson from Vietnam so we continue to invade foreign countries with the intent of democratizing them like post-WWII Japan and Germany. Look at Russiagate – our government is still fighting the Cold War and thinks Putin is trying to re-constitute the USSR. Many defense industry people believe the same thing. We went to war with the Al Qaeda organization, but only after they flattened the WTC and attacked the Pentagon. They increased the amount of Muslim immigration after 2001, indicating they generally don’t see Islamism as a threat. We remain cozy with Saudi Arabia that supplied 11 out of 19 hijackers and therefore remain a state sponsor of terror.
The government fights who it sees as a threat, both foreign and domestic. Illegal immigrants wait on our bureaucrats and politicians in restaurants and make their hotel beds. The cartels have never attacked Washington. The Chinese haven’t bombed Pearl Harbor – they only steal IP and buy property and politicians which gives one government agency work to do about another.
Increasingly, though, the government will wage war against domestic enemies as its foreign influence continues to wane and Chinese power continues to grow. Martin Van Creveld said the same thing in “The Rise and Decline of the State.” The continuous defeats of nation-states by non-state actors in foreign wars is causing nation-states to turn their wars inward on their own citizens (subjects). It’s bad-enough that the government is failing in its basic duties such as building infrastructure, protecting borders, property, and life. Now, our government is like all the others where it looks after only itself indicating an increasing alienation between the government and at least half of the Americans governed.
As the century wears on, expect more palace politics in Washington, decreasing government competency and deliberate neglect of issues important to Americans, and wars between the government and all of the alternatives it’s inviting in from foreign countries. As the government’s own publications state: anticipate a new Dark Age. This will require not only strong households (families) described by CR Wiley but also networks of households to provide the services the government used to provide. Some states are in better shape than others, but ultimately the nation-state entity that is the US government is failing and the United States is a polyglot empire of 320 million, which is roughly the size of the USSR before it collapsed. The United States is united by mammon and very little else. If you network, there are risks. Even though the State is obviating itself, it still wants to be the only option. Bureaucrats know of very little outside their bubble . Be sure therefore to vet whoever is in your network.
