Changes to House rules that enshrine concessions the speaker made to ultraconservative members
JAN 11, 2023
New York Times:
House Narrowly Approves Rules Amid Concerns About McCarthy’s Concessions
New House Rules Make It Easier to Dump Speaker, and Harder to Spend or Raise Taxes
The Fake News buzzword of the week is “concessions” — as in: “Kevin McCarthy made too many concessions to the radical Right! Waaah Waaaah!” Let us put aside for a moment — for argument’s sake — the fact that we are living under an invisible emergency military government, and just go along with the daily theater as if were real. What “Kevin McCarthy” “conceded” does not really amount to a “concession” at all; but rather, a constitutional restoration of legislative power from the office of “The Speaker” back to our individual representatives. The awesome “party leader” (dictator) powers of “The Speaker” are actually nowhere to be found in the United States Constitution. Here’s the actual clause — the only one — which even mentions “The Speaker” —
* From Article I, Section 2
“The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other Officers.”
That’s all it says! Nothing about being the “boss” of the House or even the leader of the “majority party” (parties didn’t even exist at the time of the Constitution’s ratification.) The Speaker’s tasks are to facilitate debate, organize the proceedings and maintain order — hence, the gavel. That’s about all. In terms of political power, he or she was supposed to be limited to the same degree of influence as any of the other hundreds of Congress Creatures. Exalting the Speaker to a House dictator was akin to granting extra cards and playing privileges to the fellow acting as the dealer in a hand of Poker. Good riddance to this deliberate perversion of power — and kudos to the new MAGA Republicans who — under military protection and guidance — ended the unconstitutionally consolidated tyranny of the Speakership which the Deep State had built up over many decades.
The Speaker’s gavel was never intended to be wielded like the mythical Hammer of Thor the Thunder God by some Deep State plant. A Speaker is a congressman no higher or lower than any other.
Meanwhile, regarding the coming investigative fronts, Trump’s new agents continue to talk such a big game that it is difficult to even imagine them not following through. Boebert, Gaetz, Gosar, Jordan, Fallon, Bishop, Donalds, Comer, Taylor-Greene, Biggs et al are all over social media (and even TV) doubling-down on promises to issue subpoenas and to “get to the bottom of” this or that serious scandal — and even to start impeaching high officials.
Dan Bishop (R-NC), on the House floor, January 10:
“The intelligence community has abused power… They are contemptuous of everyday Americans.…. This cannot continue. Mr. Speaker, today, we are putting the Deep State on notice — We are coming for you on behalf of everyday Americans.”
The actions to come — not just the words — are all that matter, of course. But frankly, this long-time observer of the American political scene has never seen nor read of such a time as this — when one Republican after another after another — undaunted by “party leadership” and the Talking Heads of Fake News — spews out unapologetic fire and threats toward a Demonrat president (let’s pretend that “Biden” is really him) and the Deep State in general. It’s like a whole gang of Congressional Joe McCarthies has been reincarnated!
If the scripted saga by which the Speaker was publicly bitch-slapped by this “far right” ™ bunch and then being stripped of his unconstitutional powers is any indication, then the Deep State is in for some serious pain. That’s because all of these scandals connect to the sort of really big stuff (Ukraine money laundering, child sex trafficking, big tech election manipulation, Covid fraud, January 6 false flag etc) which ultimately must come out in order for Normiedom to truly awaken and support (or at least be indifferent towards) the radical action of open military intervention after the “Biden” Justice Department fails to act upon the coming flood of Congressional findings.
Democrats Hold the Senate, as Cortez Masto Ekes Out a Victory in Nevada
The rank & file of Trumplandia — yours truly included — were disappointed when last week’s anticipated Red Tsunami broke ashore as only a Red Splash. Now, after SIX full days of “discovering” ballots — almost all of them for Demonrats — even that Red Splash has turned neutral purplish as Trump helplessly declares “Fraud! — Machines Rigged! — It’s 2020 all over again!” — on his social media platform.
The unexpected turn-of-events is so demoralizing that this time around, it’s not just the Sunshine Patriots and the usual members of the whiny Backseat “Are We There Yet” Chorus who are frantically pulling the stop wire on the Trump Train. Some heretofore patriotic stout hearts are, quite understandably, losing hope. Not us.
As was the case after the predicted Trump victory that didn’t happen in 2020, I misread the timing of an ending which is not for us to know yet. To somehow conclude from erroneous forecasts (which we should have refrained from) that the “Bad Guys” therefore have won the war is a classic example of a “non sequitur” (a conclusion or statement that does not logically follow from the previous statement.)
Never forget that “The Storm” is a sophisticated, multi-year, international military operation (a war, in essence) and NOT a political movement. Though the political component of this war is an essential subordinate element, of course — it is Trump and the Military Intel White Hats — not the digital army, nor our favorite politicians — who control the adaptable timetable and constantly use misdirection plays so clever that even we the faithful get thrown off from time to time.
1. Media mockery over Trump’s failed Red Wave is intended to demoralize you. Why allow the enemy into your head? // 2. The Cabal’s 250-year-old worldwide Mafia is not something that can be so easily uprooted in a few years. // 3. The Q Boys work on their tactics and their timeline, not ours.
Let us assess — with neither false hope nor impatient pessimism — where we are today versus one week ago:
* The emergency Military Government — hiding behind an imposter “Joe Biden” and an imposter “Nancy Pelosi” — remains in place. If the election didn’t change that, then how can one say that “we lost?” * Republicans still seem on track to win control of the House — a position from which investigative committees (chaired by MAGA operatives) may launch attacks. * Numerous Republican politicians and “conservative” influencers (Paul Joseph Watson, Mike Cernovich, Ben Shapiro, New York Post, Candace Owens, Winsome Sears, Trey Gowdy, Mo Brooks et al) were induced into outing themselves by turning against the “defeated” Trump. This smoke-out is invaluable to Trump and the movement. * Many Republican cowards at the federal, state & local levels — too afraid or simply unwilling to even speak out, let alone legally contest, this latest election fraud are also revealing themselves as useless and expendable. * More people than ever before (over 60% according to a Rasmussen poll) now believe that the electoral system is prone to fraud and badly in need of reform. The media lie about “The Big Lie” is all but finished after this latest fiasco. * Further economic hardships may be unavoidable in 2023 – no matter who controls Congress. Best to allow the coming difficulties to continue to be blamed on stumbling mumbling “Biden” and the Demonrats — and the Fed — ( which Q, just 3 days ago, threatened to “put an end to”) — until the death blow is ready to be delivered.
As was the case during the demoralizing post-2020 Election period, it is likely that more such “benefits” and revelations from the November 8th fraud (which we believe was thoroughly monitored and documented by the White Hats) will become visible as 20/20 hindsight kicks in during the coming days and weeks. Evil is still being slowly exposed to more and more sleeping normies every day.
To those who say:
“But they already have all the evidence of voter fraud from 2018 & 2020. Why not just end these sons of bitches NOW?!
— A logical response, in terms of a football analogy, might be:
“Against an adversary this powerful, this resourceful, and this deceptive, it would be prudent to continue attacking and running up the score — rather than replacing the starters with the second string and running out the clock.”
Hold the line, patriots. Trump is holding the cards, and he is NOT going to quit on us. That’s a forecast that we will make.
Trey Gowdy — Candace Owens — Paul Joseph Watson —- Just a few of the “far right” influencers who were smoked out after the election “disaster” as activated rats disloyal to Trump.
The entrenched NWO will come roaring back to supremacy the moment the White Hats take the boot off of their necks. Running up the score (evidence gathering) as if the game is still tied is the wise approach. // 2. It is not yet time to deliver the “knockout” blow.
Republicans Gain Ground in Push to Take House as Democrats Hold Off Red Wave
Republicans picked up momentum in their drive for the House majority, but Democrats held crucial seats, dashing projections of a blood bath
The happy news: MAGA Republicans (not neo-cons / RINO’s) will soon control the US House of Representatives – the most powerful branch (on paper, at least) of the Federal government. This will give Trump’s soldiers control of committees and formidable powers of investigation into things like voter fraud. The other House of Congress — the US Senate — may also break Republican, pending a December runoff vote in Georgia.
The disappointing news: The highly anticipated ‘Red Wave” mass destruction of the Demonrat Party did not materialize — as evident and rampant voter fraud again took place from coast to coast.
So, what does this “Red Splash” all mean? Looking at this matter logically, either the “Patriots Are In Control” — or they are NOT in control (or perhaps some point in between?) If the “White Hats” have the upper hand, then we may infer that the Great Election Theft of 2022 — just like that of 2020 — was allowed to happen for a higher purpose. Or, perhaps the Deep State retains many pillars of strength. Members of the whiny “Are We There Yet?” back seat chorus (who began barraging me late last night) may not wish to hear this; but we shall still have to wait until the end of the movie to know precisely how the movie ends.
On an optimistic note, Q’s posts of November 7 & 8 — coordinated with Trump own “truths” on election day — gave clear, last minute warning of the coming voter fraud. This indicates that the fraud was again induced and allowed to happen for a higher purpose, perhaps (if we’re reading Q correctly), some sort of military intervention.
The fact remains that many prominent Deep Staters have already been removed from the world stage and disappeared as the NWO crime syndicate grows weaker by the day. So let’s everybody just settle down, stop whining and see what plays out. An unexpected twist in the road does not a dead-end make.
We cannot even begin to formulate a response to the COVID-19 fraud until citizens snap out of the deadly slumber of narcissism and decadence, of passivity and consumption, that permeates every aspect of our lives.
We call out to all citizens of the world to stand up and to fight together against this COVID-19 slavery and genocide.
If you think, however, that this campaign will be won without immense personal sacrifice, without daunting risks, and without total moral commitment, I suggest that you watch CNN news, or some other source of alternative reality that suggests logic wherein chaos reigns, selfishness holds sway, and a community torn apart by extreme isolation is the norm.
COVID-19, it is not any disease. It is a disease of the heart, in both the physical and the spiritual sense. Moreover, is it a virus that infects the mind and lacerates the soul.
It is also a disease of civilization, fed by moral corruption that festers out of sight, deep down among our values and principles, at the foundations of who we are.
It would be impossible for such a blatant fraud to undo so many if we were not afflicted by a blindness of the mind.
And so we find ourselves, at this late date, like King Oedipus, who demanded that the truth be told to him, a truth that his advisors wanted to shield him from.
When King Oedipus forced himself to see the truth, in spite of his long denial, and the denial of those around him who wished to avoid anything unpleasant, he learned that he himself had been the cause of the horrible plagues sweeping his nation.
He had killed his own father without knowing who he was. He had married his own mother without knowing who she was. And he had engaged in the most horrid actions in complete ignorance.
Is that not us? Did we lot allow pharmaceutical corporations to gradually increase the vaccines that are given children over the last 30 years without stopping to think about what was happening? Did we not ignore the exponential increase in the assets of the super-rich over that 15 years, and decide not to dwell on what the ultimate implications would be of such a class society?
Did we not see how global finance slowly took control of our government and reduced it to a shell, to a toy for the amusement of banks and multinational corporations?
Like Oedipus, we knew something was terribly wrong with the United States, but we did not want to face the truth. And now, that we forced to see the horrid consequences of our actions everywhere we look, we cannot avoid the torment of Oedipus.
What was King Oedipus’ torment? His torment was that everything that he looked at, including his beloved wife and daughters, everything reminded him of his evil actions. Ultimately he was driven to put out his eyes in despair, and through that act, through that acquired blindness, he learned to see, to perceive things as they are, not as he wished them to be, for the first time.
Enough is enough. There is no time left for polite words, no time left for compromises with the rich and powerful, no time left for twisted, half-truths that spare us from acknowledging how our own failure to serve as citizens allowed this horrific monster to spawn in the dank waters of indifference.
Enough is enough!
There you were, in your comfortable offices, reading articles in established reputable journals, articles that presented impossible fairytales about a COVID-19 pandemic. You knew from the start that this narrative made no sense, that it flew in the face of everything you learned in graduate school. Yet you went along with it; you told your friends and your family that this fraud was real. Worst of all, you taught your students that these lies were truths.
It was a horrific blasphemy, an insult to the intellectual training you have received—none of that training was free, not of it belongs to you.
It was paid for with the tax dollars of working people. It was supported by the sacrifices of scholars and librarians over the last three thousand years.
You used your education, your social status and your skills as a writer to present falsehoods as facts, propaganda as truth, and political manipulation as policy.
You allowed classes to be cancelled, universities, schools, to be shut down, and a pathetic online exchange to take the place of teaching. You knew it was not justified, you know it was not what has ever been done to schools, even in wars, and yet you went along with it.
You used the trappings of authority with which you have been invested to glorify and legitimate a travesty, to put angel’s wings on a demon and to open the doors of Hell wide open so that universities, research institutions and academic journals could be reduced to brothels, and all scientific and academic debate be poisoned by a gangrene of the mind.
You knew that every word that you read in the newspapers was wrong. Yet you read it anyway, you repeated anyway, and you gave it a legitimacy through your fancy words, or your cowardly silence, that it would not have had otherwise.
You were afraid, but not afraid that the Gestapo would take you away in the middle of the night. No. You were just worried that you might not get that promotion, that grant, that perhaps you might not be able to publish that book, or that you might not have the money for your kids’ private school tuition.
For two years, you, a teacher, someone who has an understanding of the world that working people will never have, you supported this crime.
But now, enough is enough.
Stop your criminal actions! Stop your immoral behavior. Adhere to the highest principles and cease and desist immediately!
Government officials and politicians!
You convinced yourself that it was fine to follow the policies fed to you by banks and corporations, and the billionaires who hid behind them. You told yourself that it was not your problem, that it was just the inevitable circumstances, that you had no choice but to violate the Constitution, the law and your conscience.
You convinced yourself that the criminal concentration of power and the deception of the population by the government was just political realism, not something to worry yourself about.
And you watched in silence as the techniques for inducing mass psychosis through the use of fear-promoting false reports, masks to train for compliance, and social distancing to break down bonds between community members and family members, were implemented.
You know the true nature of this campaign, but your looked the other way, you tried to drown your feelings of guilt in fine food, vacations with the family and the acquisition of property and assets.
You knew that you were no longer working for the government, for the people, any more, but rather working for an international criminal syndicate, a shadow government that makes policy in secret.
Yet, you kept signing those secret contracts with investment banks, with pharmaceutical corporations, and with private intelligence firms. You did so without batting an eye. You thought you were being so sophisticated and understand of political reality.
You permitted the making of health policy, and financial policy, through classified directives put out by private intelligence firms working for the super-rich—and you assumed that no one would ever know how you had betrayed the people.
But now, enough is enough.
Stop your criminal actions! Stop your immoral behavior. Adhere to the highest principles and cease and desist from these actions immediately!
Officers in the Military and intelligence!
Your job is to protect the nation and to risk your lives defending our nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. You have obtained tremendous benefits that are only appropriate if you adhere to that code and if you are ready to risk your lives for the nation, if you willing to make sacrifices for the greater good.
But you have intentionally ignored your vows and stuck your snouts deep into the national security trough to suck up all the money flowing down. You have betrayed your honor and forfeited your status. You are not entitled to anything but the just deserts of your fine work.
So many of you have grown so familiar with corruption that it was second nature to rubber stamp the Covid-19 operation.
It did not even occur to you that this was a Pearl Harbor, a historic sneak attack that demanded commitment and sacrifice now, not later.
No, COVID-19 was not another opportunity to make money on the side, to buy a house in the countryside, to make ugly deals with twisted people for benefits off the books.
The result of your indolence and your perfidy? The United States, and the world, suffered the greatest attack in history, one that has already killed hundreds of thousands, millions, and will kill many millions more. You turned your glance the other way when a global totalitarian regime, whose name cannot be spoken, was launched to replace the Constitution and the United States.
You played stupid. You, the brave soldier, were a coward, an accomplice, a collaborator.
You acted as if the missiles and tanks of North Korea and Iran were the threat when real the threat was international banks and corporations, and the super-rich who live right here, at home.
You followed the orders of generals who did not follow the Constitution, did not adhere to the rule of law, and did not strive to protect our citizens. They, and you, were happy to sell the people out to privatized intelligence and military firms, firms paid in full to tear the United States apart for profit using the ghastly weapon COVID-19.
But now, enough is enough.
Stop your criminal actions! Stop your immoral behavior. Adhere to the highest principles and cease and desist from these actions immediately!
Judges and Lawyers!
You knew the law and you knew how the Federal government and local government are supposed to function. You watched as the entire judicial system on which citizens depend to defend them against international corporations and their parasite operatives was torn apart after January, 2020.
You saw how the court system was defanged and neutered, how the Congress was made into a circus whose clowns had no say in policy and who most certainly cared nothing about the people they represented.
And yet, you who have the special training, the expertise, and the intimate knowledge that working people can never obtain, you chose, against the Constitution, against the interests of the nation, and against your own conscience, to aid and abet the billionaires and to betray the common men and women of the United States.
It is not philosophers or artists, poets or dreamers who decide the value of things these days. Nor is it lawyers or judges, bureaucrats or professors. That critical job belongs to investment bankers and their parasite friends these days.
But you, the representatives of the law that citizens depend on, you allowed these secret forces to hide themselves behind you. You enabled them to carry out this COVID-19 reign of terror and you blocked the efforts of citizens to defend themselves.
When secret law was passed that made it impossible to even process legal responses to these illegal acts, you willingly helped out. When large swathes of the government were taken over by a shadow regime, you looked the other way.
But now, enough is enough.
Stop your criminal actions! Stop your immoral behavior. Adhere to the highest principles and cease and desist from these actions immediately!
Your responsibility is the greatest. You took the Hippocratic oath to work for the health of your patients and you are paid lavishly for that service in our society.
Yet you readily went along with the, unscientific and unhealthy COVID-19 regulations, and you used your status in the eyes of the public to promote a hoax, a fraud, a hoax that you knew was deadly and that you knew benefitted the rich and powerful.
You stood with rich against your own patients, encouraging them to have dangerous PCR tests, to engage in unscientific social distancing and to receive deadly mRNA vaccines.
You have violated the most basic ethical principles of medicine; you have turned your back on the Nuremberg Code of 1947 and turned medicine into a war on citizens, turned science into mind-numbing propaganda.
We cannot call you a doctor any more. You are a monstrosity and you became that way, not because the rich threatened your life, but just hinted a reduction in the benefits if you did not comply.
But now, enough is enough.
Stop your criminal actions! Stop your immoral behavior. Adhere to the highest principles and cease and desist from these actions immediately!
Yes, I am so sorry, but we must talk about what you did too.
But you knew full well that these orders for masks were stupid, that this vaccine roll-out made no sense, and that the social distancing rules at school were nonsensical and deeply damaging for the kids.
You saw those occasional postings on Facebook, on Twitter, and elsewhere that suggested another, more horrific, interpretation than what was constantly repeated on television. You could sense truth in what those conspiracy theories, but you, out cowardice, out of selfishness, and for you own petty convenience, decided to look the other way.
You did permanent damage to your own children. You hid the truth from them, and you reinforced at home the lies that they were exposed to at school.
You thought that your duty as a parent was to keep the kids happy, comfortable and to enjoy your time with them.
But that was never your job. Your job was to do your best to protect your children, to stop them from exposure to deadly vaccines, and to pull them out of school, if necessary, and tell them the bitter truth about what has happened to our society.
You found it easier to lie to them than to protect them, easier to repeat the fictions from the news than to speak the truth, and easier to be the image of a parent than to take the actions necessary to be one.
But now, enough is enough.
Stop your criminal actions! Stop your immoral behavior. Adhere to the highest principles and cease and desist from these actions immediately!
According to the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989:7
“Whoever knowingly develops, produces, stockpiles, transfers, acquires, retains, or possesses any biological agent, toxin, or delivery system for use as a weapon, or knowingly assists a foreign state or any organization to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for life or any term of years, or both. There is extraterritorial Federal jurisdiction over an offense under this section committed by or against a national of the United States.”
“Acts”, laws, regulations, restrictions all come with penalties. But without enforcement mechanisms and the willpower/authority to use them, any “Act” is just an arrangement of words on paper to make politicians look righteous.
Consider: If the government – and the public – knew for undeniable, irrefutable fact the dreaded ‘COVID virus’ was developed and released in Wuhan with the explicit intention of devastating the United States and the rest of the free world, what precisely would any entity effectively *do* about it? …
Impose severe financial sanctions? Condemn China on the world stage with a sternly worded State Department press release? Demand reparations? Express outrage? The political status of America indicates the answer is none of the above.
Consider: According to the act “Whoever knowingly develops… or knowingly assists… shall be fined or imprisoned for life…”.
Does any sentient being capable of walking upright believe China’s Chairman Xi Jinping would willingly surrender to such an indictment? That China would pay a fine of any amount? Or be forced to admit its guilt on the world stage for violating the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, being responsible for the death of millions’? Only the recently lobotomized would check the “Yes” box.
Name the 2 things you come in contact with every day that are not taxed, regulated, embargoed, licensed, restricted, or prohibited by the Government;
Name the 2 issues impacting your life on a daily basis that have not originated from Government.
Answers: None and All.
With such an unambiguous universal indictment of government, how are we to understand – and accept – its continued existence? What “government service” could not be more economically, more effectively performed by private citizens working in voluntary cooperation to their mutual benefit and, subsequently, the benefit of others?
Aside from national defense, what human endeavors would be hobbled by the elimination of government taxation, confiscation, regulation, economic restrictions, personal as well as commercial prohibitions, and the agencies that enforce them?
The 535 ‘elected officials” – and thousands of unelected bureaucrats – in Washington, in addition to the several thousand who comprise the elected, appointed, and assumed state leaders, total a tiny fraction of the 330 million people whose lives they presume to run without authority or mutual agreement; the ‘social contract’ is a dirty joke.
Which begs the question: Why? With such an overwhelming number of acts, laws, orders, regulations negatively impacting the lives of literally every person, why is government even permitted to exist? Anyone can write a declaration, a Constitution, an act or law, and with enough guns, command compliance. That’s not freedom; that’s not liberty.
By any logic, reason, or objective analysis, Government is a criminal operation of intimidation, the immoral imposition of force yielding tyranny camouflaged by the fiction of tradition, the designed ineptitude of public education and the principled failure of the press acting as the citizen’s “Watchdog at the Gate”, guarding against the overreach of government intrusion.
Consider: what was the last act of government that advanced freedom, protected liberty; that secured your unalienable rights? When did you give your consent to be governed by sociopaths, psychopaths, narcissists, pedophiles, liars, thieves, and incompetents? Where is your signed copy of the “social contract”?
Until a cure for the true pandemic of aggressive ignorance and its variants – contagious apathy, instant gratification, and technologically induced narcissism – the continued erosion of the remainder of freedom and liberty will continue, leaving “so what?” unanswered.
The document “Current Communist Goals” lists 45 objectives pursued by the Communists to overthrow America from within. Although this document is over 60 years old, it is more relevant than ever. In fact, everyone should read it right now. Here’s a look at this important list.
On January 10th, 1963, a document titled Current Communist Goals was presented to the US Congress and was added to the Congressional record “under unanimous consent”. It lists 45 goals pursued by the Communists to overthrow America by infiltrating and corrupting its key institutions.
That list is an excerpt from the 1958 book The Naked Communist written by FBI special agent Cleon Skousen. Reading it today is as mind-blowing as it is troubling. While some points are somewhat outdated – especially those concerning geopolitics – most of them are, today, more relevant than ever.
While going through this list, one cannot help but realize that many goals have been fully achieved several years ago. Others are being aggressively pursued right before our eyes.
This doesn’t mean that the USSR is back from the dead to rule the world with communism. However, it does mean that the global elite is using key components of this list to advance its age-old agenda of a one-world government. Why? Because the key components of this list are timeless, tried-and-true techniques to break down individuals and entire nations.
Here’s the Congressional record in its entirety.
EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Thursday, January 10, 1963
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:
[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
Throughout the years, countless articles on The Vigilant Citizen have pointed towards several points on this list, especially those concerning the control of arts, entertainment, education, and mass media. One only needs to read news headlines from the past years to realize that several aspects of this list are, right now, a top priority.
For this reason, this list is an important VC Resource that everyone needs to be familiar with it. If one puts aside some of the outdated points that were only applicable during the Cold War, this list presents a timeless blueprint on how to break down individuals and, by extension, entire nations.
Of course, since 1958, this list was most likely updated to become infinitely more sophisticated. Elite think tanks constantly fund advanced studies in human psychology and cognitive processes in order to refine their techniques of mass control.
With that being said, there aren’t too many ways of subverting individuals and nations. The basic principles are all there. The global elite has been hard at work implementing these goals during the last decades and, in the past couple of years, things have gone in full overdrive.
A perfect complement to this list is this important video by ex-KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov who described in 1984 how the USSR infiltrated nations through the four stages of ideological subversion (demoralization, destabilization, crisis, and normalization).
In conclusion, I need to point out that this isn’t a “Left vs Right” issue. Framing objective truths in a “Left vs Right” perspective falls right into their agenda of controlling narratives. Fact: A great number of politicians – from both sides of the political spectrum – are fully sold to this agenda and have been pushing it for years. They are the occult elite. They don’t care about local politics, they operate on a global level, beyond political parties.
This agenda is not only being applied to the United States. It is happening across the world. Right now. More than ever.
An extra-governmental branch of the American power structure — let’s call it, the US CEOngress — has in recent years surpassed the power of the state itself in some ways. What the Globalists cannot, because of political realities, achieve through legislation or regulation; (((they))) are increasingly getting done through the CEOngress. Indeed, it was the internal initiatives imposed by the Executive Club of America — not the political class — which, exactly as foretold by the 2019 Gates / WHO “Event 201” and in conjunction with Fake News hype — unleashed and enhanced Stupid-19 mania. By the time the Demonrat Governors and Mayors joined the frenzy of fear engineered by the “public-private-partnership,” ™ Trump was already boxed-in by the coming “tide of history.” ™
Prior to Stupid-19, the CEOngress had already, on its own and independent of any state entity, advanced the Globalist causes of LGBT ™, the Climate Con, anti-Whiteness and anti-copism. And now, the empty suits are lining up against recent laws in Georgia and Texas that are designed to prevent voter fraud.
From the article:
“With Republicans in Texas and other states continuing to advance restrictive election legislation, corporate chieftains around the country have stepped up their efforts in recent days to oppose such laws and defend voting rights.”
Among the CEOs hurling threats at various states seeking to implement better ID systems for voting are Doug Parker of American Airlines — whose company requires passengers to present a photo ID before boarding an airplane; and Ken Chenault of American Express — whose company requires customers to disclose personal and financial data in order to obtain a credit card; and Ken Frazier of Merck — whose drugs often require photo ID in order to be dispensed at the pharmacy. Think about that!
After doing its part to promote the Stupid-19 plot that so damaged the “Trump Economy,” CEOngress again conspired to thwart Trump’s efforts to challenge the fraudulent election results. A few months after the fact, Globalist Slime (Time) Magazine, in its February 4, 2021 issue, could not contain its demonic desire to gloat about what had happened:
“An odd thing happened amid Trump’s attempts to reverse the result: corporate America turned on him. Hundreds of major business leaders called on him to concede. To the President, something felt amiss. “It was all very, very strange,” Trump said on Dec. 2. “Within days after the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint the winner, even while many key states were still being counted.”
In a way, Trump was right.
There was a conspiracy unfolding behind the scenes, one that both curtailed the protests and coordinated the resistance from CEOs. Both surprises were the result of an informal alliance between left-wing activists and business titans. The pact was formalized in a terse, little-noticed joint statement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO published on Election Day. Both sides would come to see it as a sort of implicit bargain.” (emphasis added) *
Commies and “capitalists” conspiring amongst themselves for a common cause? That may seem counter-intuitive; but it’s really not when one understands that communism and cartel capitalism (not to be confused with small to mid-size competitive free enterprise) actually have much in common. Both “ideologies” are elitist, monopolistic, parasitic, and debt-money dependent. They therefore mesh very nicely together, in spite of what the ignorant true believers of both “opposing” camps may think.
This commie-capitalist blend has always been there; but only in recent years has the total corruption and consolidation of the CEO class into a single CEOngress been achieved. How did (((they))) manage to build this extra-governmental monster to its current strength? We actually did a lengthy piece on this subject a while back (here). In short, the dictatorship of CEOngress was rapidly consolidated through a relatively recent investment scheme known as ESG investing — which stands for Environmental Social & Corporate Governance.
The practice of ESG investing integrates Globalist objectives into investment decision-making. So, let us say that a publicly traded company fails to manifest sufficient internal and external “awareness” ™ or “sensitivity” ™ on issues like cross-dressing, genital mutilation of “trans” children, “diversity in the workplace,” ™ the Climate Con, “racism” ™, gun control, the Stupid-19 scamdemic, coerced vaccination, “voting rights,” ™ etc. — The GIGANTIC investment advisory groups — BlackRock, Vanguard & State Street — can and will then boot that company’s stocks out of certain ETF’s (Exchange Traded Funds). Conversely, if a company virtue-signals by adopting the “politically correct” libtarded agenda — its stock will be included in all of the major funds.
ESG is an extortion racket — and if we don’t get control of the power of CEOngress soon, elections will matter even less than they already do.
Much has been written about the famous debate between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton over the constitutionality of America’s first central bank, the Bank of the United States (BUS). This was where Jefferson, as secretary of state, enunciated his “strict constructionist” view of the Constitution, making his case to President George Washington that since a central bank was not one of the powers specifically delegated by the states to the central government, and since the idea was explicitly rejected by the constitutional convention, a central bank is unconstitutional.
Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton notoriously responded by inventing the notion of “implied” as opposed to enumerated powers of the Constitution.
George Washington signed legislation creating the BUS not because of the strength of Hamilton’s argument but because of a shady political deal. The nation’s capital was being relocated from New York to Virginia, and Washington wanted the border of the new District of Columbia to abut his property at Mount Vernon. In return for a redrawing of the district’s border, Washington signed the Federalist’s legislation creating the BUS.
America’s first central bank was borne of a corrupt political deal, but that particular act of political corruption pales in comparison to what Hamilton and the Federalists really had in mind. As Murray Rothbard wrote in The Mystery of Banking (p. 192), Hamilton and his political compatriots, especially defense contractor/Philadelphia congressman Robert Morris, wanted
to reimpose in the new United States a system of mercantilism and big government similar to that in Great Britain, against which the colonists had rebelled. The object was to have a strong central government, particularly a strong president or king as chief executive, built up by high taxes and heavy public debt.
An especially important part of what Rothbard called “the Morris scheme” was “to organize and head a central bank, to provide cheap credit and expanded money for himself and his allies.”
Hamilton was Morris’s Machiavellian string puller in the Washington administration. As explained by Douglas Adair, an editor of The Federalist Papers (1980 Penguin Books edition, p. 171),
with devious brilliance, Hamilton set out, by a program of class legislation, to unite the propertied interests of the eastern seaboard into a cohesive administration party, while at the same time he attempted to make the executive dominant over the Congress by a lavish use of the spoils system. In carrying out his scheme … Hamilton transformed every financial transaction of the Treasury Department into an orgy of speculation and graft in which selected senators, congressmen, and certain of their richer constituents throughout the nation participated.
What Adair is talking about here is how Hamilton went about nationalizing the old government debt. New government bonds were issued and the old debt was to be cashed out at face value. This plan “immediately became public knowledge in New York City,” wrote John Steele Gordon in Hamilton’s Blessing (p. 25), “but news of it spread only slowly, via horseback and sailing vessel, to the rest of the country.” Thus, a tremendous arbitrage opportunity was created for the New York/Philadelphia political insiders like Robert Morris and his business associates. This was the first instance in US history of political insider trading.
The political insiders, including many members of Congress, immediately swung into action to purchase as many of the old government bonds as they could from unsuspecting Revolutionary War veterans for as little as 2 percent of par value. As historian Claude Bowers described the scene in his book, Jefferson and Hamilton,
expresses with very large sums of money on their way to North Carolina for purposes of speculation … splashed and bumped over wretched winter roads…. Two fast-sailing vessels, chartered by a member of Congress … were ploughing the waters southward on a similar mission. (p. 47)
Among the men who became instant millionaires were “leading members of Congress who knew that provision for the redemption of the paper [at face value] had been made,” wrote Bowers (p. 48).
Upon observing this caper, Hamilton’s political nemesis, Thomas Jefferson, came to understand that Hamilton was intentionally creating a system of institutionalized corruption in order to buy the political support in Congress for his party’s big-government mercantilist/imperialist agenda — the very kind of political system the colonists had waged war against. In a February 4, 1818, essay (in Thomas Jefferson: Writings, pp. 661–696), written long after Hamilton’s death in 1804, Jefferson recalled what Hamilton was up to: “Hamilton’s financial system had two objects. 1st as a puzzle, to exclude popular understanding & inquiry. 2ndly, as a machine for the corruption of the legislature” (emphasis added).
With regard to the latter “object,” Jefferson explained that Hamilton
avowed the opinion that man could be governed by one of two motives only, force or interest: force he observed, in this country, was out of the question [note: this was pre-Lincoln]; and the interests therefore of the members [of Congress] must be laid hold of, to keep the legislature in unison with the executive. And with grief and shame it must be acknowledged that his machine was not without effect.… Some members [of Congress] were found sordid enough to bend their duty to their interests, and to look after personal, rather than public good.
Jefferson then described the very same scene mentioned above in the quote from Claude Bowers:
The base scramble began. Couriers & relay horses by land, and swift sailing pilot boats by sea, were flying in all directions. Active partners & agents were associated & employed in every state, town and country neighborhood, and this paper was bought up at 5 and even as low as 2% in the pound, before the holder knew that Congress had already provided for its redemption at par. Immence sums were thus filched from the poor and ignorant.
“Men thus enriched by the dexterity of a leader [Hamilton],” Jefferson wrote, “would follow of course the chief who was leading them to fortune, and thus become the zealous instruments of all his [political] enterprises.”
But the political power created by such graft was only temporary, said Jefferson. “It would be lost with the loss [i.e., retirement or death] of the individual members [of Congress] whom it had enriched.” Therefore, Jefferson reasoned, “Some engine of influence more permanent must be contrived.” This permanent engine of corruption, said Jefferson, “was the Bank of the U.S.” A central bank, once established, would be very difficult to destroy, and would inevitably become a permanent source of financing for political bribery and manipulation. How prescient.
Jefferson concluded that “Hamilton was not only a monarchist, but for a monarchy bottomed on corruption,” with a central bank being the financial centerpiece of the corrupt regime. He arrived at this conclusion based on observing Hamilton’s behavior as Treasury Secretary, as well as a personal conversation involving himself, Hamilton, Secretary of War Henry Knox, President John Adams, and Attorney General Edmund Randolph in 1791, the year the BUS came into being.
Jefferson recalled how President John Adams said of the British constitution, “purge that constitution of its corruption, and give to its popular branch equality of representation, and it would be the most perfect constitution ever devised by the wit of man.” To which Hamilton objected,
Purge it of its corruption, and give to its popular branch equality of representation, & it would become an impracticable government; as it stands at present, with all its supposed defects, it is the most perfect government which ever existed.
Hamilton was “so bewitched & perverted by the British example,” wrote Jefferson, “as to be under thoro’ conviction that corruption was essential to the government of a nation” (p. 671). Hamilton viewed “his” bank, the Bank of the United States, as being absolutely essential to his Americanized version of “the most perfect government which ever existed.”

What if early results in swing states on Nov. 3 show President Trump ahead, and he declares victory before heavily Democratic mail-in votes, which he has falsely linked with fraud, are fully counted?

Newsweek: How Trump Could Turn the Most Challenging Election Since the Civil War into an Unprecedented Disaster By David H. Freedman
Early on in the 1972 classic film, The Godfather, there was a scene in which Tom Hagen, the “consigliere” (counselor) of the Corleone Family, demonstrated the art of openly threatening someone without actually saying so directly. Consigliere Hagen (played by Robert Duvall) threatened a movie producer named Woltz in a manner so subtle that even many Godfather aficionados miss it.
From the script:
All right, start talking.
Uh, I was sent by a friend of Johnny Fontane’s — His friend is my client, who’d give his undying friendship to Mr. Woltz, if Mr. Woltz would grant us a small — favor.
Woltz is listening.
Give Johnny the part in that new war film you’re starting next week.
WOLTZ (laughs, then)
And ah, what favor would ah your friend ah grant Mr. Woltz?
You’re gonna have some union problems; my client could make them disappear.
Are you trying to muscle me?
Now listen to me, you smooth-talking son-of-a-bitch! Let me lay it on the line for you and your boss, whoever he is. Johnny Fontane will never get that movie! I don’t care how many – dago guinea WOP greaseball gumbahs come out of the woodwork!
What Hagen actually did in that scene was, under the guise of “looking out for Woltz,” threatened the producer with a labor strike! Woltz was no fool; which explains why he became so angry. He understood that the real message was: “Do what we say or we will go to war with you.” Woltz, at first, refused to comply. A bloody horse’s head placed in his bed soon changed his tune.
“Mr. Woltz — I have not threatened you.”
Now, turning our attention to the Globalist / Jewish Mafia, we can better interpret some of the similarly thuggish threats and “warnings” that have been emanating from prominent Demonrats such as Big Mike Obongo: (here) — Creepy Pedo Joe Biden: (here) — Whore Harris: (here) — and now — as evidenced by the ominously provocative headlines about a “doomsday scenario” & “violence” & “disaster” & “catastrophe” & “a constitutional crisis” referenced above — those notorious flagship vessels of Judea’s Piranha Press — the New York Slimes and Washington Compost, and also Newsweek. The “color revolution” message is clear. Get rid of Donald Trump on November 3rd or there will be hell to pay!
These barely veiled threats, we believe, tie back nicely to several “crumbs” which the Trump / Q Anon team posted between October 31 – November 2 of 2017. The meaning of those Q posts wasn’t exactly clear back then, but as Q has often said since: “Future proves past” — which means that certain early scenes in this “movie” (aka “the plan”) are really part of the middle or ending of the story. Let’s explore some of these mysterious 2017 posts and see how the de-codes make sense today.
1. Big Mike (or an impostor, or a “deep fake” video): “If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me, they can; and they will if we don’t make a change in this election. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden like our lives depend on it.” // 2. Creepy Redo Biden: “Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is re-elected?” // 3. Whore Harris (or an impostor, or a “deep fake” video): “But they (the protests) are not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop. They’re not – this is a movement, I’m telling you. They’re not gonna stop….. and everyone beware, because they’re not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop before election day in November, and they’re not gonna stop after election day. And that should be – everyone should take note of that.”
Post 22 October 31, 2017: Who controls the NG? Why was the NG recently activated in select cities within the US? Can the NG work in coordination w/ the marines?
Analysis: NG = National Guard – which, when activated during a national emergency, can be controlled by Trump and could indeed coordinate with the marines.
Post 24 November 1, 2017: Any person making statements they will not be seeking re-election was put in submission. For the betterment of the country not all will be prosecuted and all will do as told. You will see more of this occur (not normal yet disregarded) and even on the D side.
Analysis:After this prediction was made, an astonishing number — “record numbers” according to all media accounts — of Republican Congressmen (including House Speaker Paul Ryan) resigned in advance of both the 2018 mid-term elections and the upcoming 2020 elections (2018 here) and (2020 here). Most of them were anti-Trumpers. On the “D side” – similar “submissions” would explain why the Demonrats appear to be comically self-destructing. Is the self-destruction of the D’s a deliberate “plea deal” consequence of this submission to Sheriff Trump? I believe so.
Post 24 (continued): Do conditions need to be satisfied to authorize? (NG) What former President used the military to save the republic and what occurred exactly?
Analysis: A national emergency has to be declared – which is what Trump did in response to Stupid-19.
Post 24 (continued)
The masses tend to panic in such situations. No war. No civil unrest. Clean and swift.
Analysis: When the hammer drops, it will be clean and swift. Many now believe that many Deep Staters have already been arrested.
Post 26 November 1, 2017: Think about it logically. The only way is the military. Fully controlled. Save & spread (once 11.3 verifies as 1st marker).
Analysis: 11.3 is a very important sign. Did it really stand for the letters K.C. – after indicted Deep State lawyer, Kevin Cline Smith? Or does it refer to November 3rd, 2020 – the “marker” to kick-off the military action?
Post 34 November 1, 2017: My fellow Americans, over the course of the next several days you will undoubtedly realize that we are taking back our great country (the land of the free) from the evil tyrants that wish to do us harm and destroy the last remaining refuge of shining light. On POTUS’ order, we have initiated certain fail-safes that shall safeguard the public from the primary fallout which is slated to occur 11.3 upon the arrest announcement of Mr. Podesta (actionable 11.4). Confirmation (to the public) of what is occurring will then be revealed and will not be openly accepted. Public riots are being organized in serious numbers in an effort to prevent the arrest and capture of more senior public officials.
Analysis: There goes that date of 11.3 again – accompanied by a prediction of some unrest related to “fallout.”
Post 34 (continued): On POTUS’ order, a state of temporary military control will be actioned and special ops carried out.
Analysis: This fits in with the Left’s current threats to trigger violence immediately after Election Day (11.3)
1. Paul the Rat Ryan did everything he could to obstruct and undermine Donald Trump. Q Anon & Friends have since forced him to resign. When Trump took office in January 2017, there were 241 Republicans in the House. Since then, 115 of them (48%) have been “whacked” by Trump — having either retired, resigned, been defeated, or are retiring after 2020. // 2. Under cover of Stupid-19 — a Globalist scamdemic which Trump and the Patriots knew was coming in advance — emergency presidential powers over the National Guard and military have already been granted to Trump. Q Anon foresaw the need for this power-grab three years ago.
Post 34 (continued): Rest assured, the safety and well-being of every man, woman, and child of this country is being exhausted in full. However, the atmosphere within the country will unfortunately be divided as so many have fallen for the corrupt and evil narrative that has long been broadcast.
Analysis: It will get ugly, but the patriots are in control.
Post 34 (continued: We will be initiating the Emergency Broadcast System during this time in an effort to provide a direct message (avoiding the fake news) to all citizens.
Analysis: This is the only way to totally bypass Fake News and speak to ALL Americans. The Globalist press has already expressed concern about Trump’s control over the Emergency Broadcast System (here) – which includes TV, radio, and I Phones — and reported that the system was tested on cellphones for the very first time in 2018. (here)
Post 34 (continued): Organizations and/or people that wish to do us harm during this time will be met with swift fury – certain laws have been pre-lifted to provide our great military the necessary authority to handle and conduct these operations (at home and abroad).
Analysis: These laws were not “pre-lifted” in 2017, when this post was issued – but during the fog of Stupid-19 – which the patriots already knew was coming.
Post 36 November 1, 2017: If Trump failed, if we failed, and HRC assumed control, we as Patriots were prepared to do the unthinkable (this was leaked internally and kept the delegate recount scam and BO from declaring fraud). Dig deeper – missing critical points to paint the full picture. There is simply no other way than to use the military. It’s that corrupt and dirty.
Analysis: This leaked threat of direct military intervention –“the unthinkable” –explains why Killary meekly backed-down from demanding a “recount” that some had been urging her to pursue (here) as well as why the post-election delegate tampering effort (here) also fizzled out. Wow! The generals and admirals really do have our backs!
Post 44 November 2, 2017: Before POTUS departs on Friday he will be sending an important message via Twitter.
Analysis: The trigger-tweet from Trump has been mentioned several times over the years, and is an important article-of-faith among A followers
Post 55 November 2, 2017: Look to Twitter: Exactly this: “My fellow Americans, the Storm is upon us…….”
Analysis: The post election code-word from Trump – to be tweeted after the Communists explode in red rage (as the Slimes and Compost now confirm) — as the activated NG and Marines make their “clean and swift” move while Trump activates the Emergency System. Notice how the 2017 dates for these posts — though from three years ago –precisely precede 11.3 — another known Q Anon tactic.
To you weakened Deep State Reds in the suites and in the Military Intelligence-infiltrated streets — Go ahead and follow through on your implied stated threats to stir up mayhem on 11.3 and usher in a violent “constitutional crisis.” Do your worst! Trump’s trap was set for you a long time ago.
1. According to Q Anon posts from 2017, when the time comes, the president will bypass the media with Emergency Alert Systems (which Trump later tested in 2018) // 2. Does 11.3 mean that the “storm” events will kick off on Election Day (November 3)??? // 3. “The calm before THE STORM.”
Q Anon posted an image of Q fans posing in front of the Guantanamo Bay Naval Station — which contains a prison camp that Trump has spent a lot of money building up for some reason (here)
For Puerto Ricans who support self-determination, it is truly mind-blowing that some Democrats have the audacity to offer statehood as a solution on the question of Puerto Rico’s political status. At a time when Congress cannot come to grips with its responsibility to decolonize Puerto Rico – let alone guarantee a process of negotiation – support for statehood becomes suspicious at best, seeming way too much like political opportunism. The disconnect between the Puerto Rican reality and pro-statehood declarations is dismaying.
Ill-informed support for statehood is based on several myths:
Puerto Ricans are Americans: False. The Puerto Rican national identity remains an ethnic identification of peoples without a national citizenship of their own who live in a territory they call “their country.” This does not obscure the reality that Puerto Rico constitutes a nation, which has had a colonial relation with the United States since 1898. Ambiguities were created by Public Law 600and by the portrayal in 1953 at the United Nations of the Commonwealth as “a compact” between both nations. As the Harvard Law Review clearly stated in 2017: “Puerto Rico’s heart is not American. It is Puerto Rican.”
Puerto Ricans in the U.S. have struggled for civil rights, but the political, societal and constitutional reality of Puerto Rico is altogether another issue. You cannot erase a nationhood by overlooking its existence and assume that “Puerto Ricans are Americans.” Such statements constitute a classic strategy of assimilation that negates Puerto Rico’s right to exist.
Most Puerto Ricans support statehood: False. Puerto Ricans have rejected statehood in five plebiscites held since 1968. The 2017 plebiscite was boycotted by all anti-statehood Puerto Rican parties, resulting in statehood receiving 97 percent support, with only 23 percent of registered voters’ participation. The 2012 plebiscite, so far the only one held the same day as local elections, was boycotted by one of the major political parties, resulting in an avalanche of blank votes, pro-independence and pro-Free Association, which outnumbered pro-statehood votes. Statehood persistently has lost support since the 1993 plebiscite (788,296 votes in 1993; 728,157 votes in 1998; 834,191 in 2012, and 502,801 in 2017).
While in power, pro-statehood administrations have corrupted the Puerto Rican government to the point of its collapse, making this faction incapable of leading any future political project. In summer 2019, the pro-statehood governor Ricardo Rossello was ousted.
Civil rights in the U.S. are not being addressed by making Puerto Rico a state. As an unincorporated territory, Puerto Rico has a different constitutional reality, and its urgency is not related to civil rights but rather to our human right to decolonization. Since 1998, the only political option gaining support is Free Association, a negotiated compact in which both countries become freely associated.
Puerto Rico is not a country: False. The Foraker Act, the first law passed in Congress concerning Puerto Rico, stated that Puerto Ricans “shall be deemed and held to be citizens of Porto (sic) Rico.” Fifty years later, Public Law 600 recognized Puerto Ricans as “peoples.” In 1953, in a push to get international recognition for the Commonwealth as a pact between the U.S. and Puerto Rico “forming a political association, which respects the individuality and the cultural characteristics of Puerto Rico [and] maintains the spiritual bonds between Puerto Rico and Latin America,” the United States pursued Resolution 748 at the U.N. General Assembly, allowing the U.S. to cease delivering annual reports on Puerto Rico’s colonial status. Our nationhood has withstood all attempts to be assimilated. Puerto Ricans refer to Puerto Rico as “el País” (the country). Puerto Ricans are a nation, and its people are in Puerto Rico and in its global diaspora. We are not American expats living in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a domestic issue: Partially true. Puerto Rico is a domestic issue as much as it is an international issue. The U.S. took over Puerto Rico through invasion, bilateral negotiation, and a peace protocol, normalizing the relationship through Supreme Court decisions known as the Insular Cases. The U.S. scored a diplomatic victory with U.N. approval of Resolution 748. Even though Puerto Ricans at the time already were U.S. citizens, and even if the country’s political fate was thought to have been sealed, Puerto Rico today again faces the important issue of sovereignty.
Furthermore, the persistent federal mismanagement of the humanitarian crisis following the 2017 hurricanes will continue to be an international issue, as economic, political and social conditions deteriorate. Puerto Rico is a pending international issue with multilateral repercussions.
Puerto Rico has no option but statehood: False. Puerto Rico’s status question can be resolved with strong bipartisan commitment. Inspired by its anti-colonial foundational spirit, guided by its experience with the freely associated republics in the Pacific, and in compliance with international law, the United States has available political options that Puerto Ricans would be ready to discuss. In fact, many Puerto Rican professionals agree that negotiating a compact of Free Association with the United States is the correct mechanism for finding a reasonable political solution to this issue.
Congress will serve the cause of Puerto Rico and the United States by understanding and accepting that Puerto Rico needs decolonization, through a process of dialogue and negotiation. Statehood goes against U.S. political and economic interests, and actually never has been on the negotiating table. Sovereignty serves the interests of both countries, and currently is Puerto Rico’s only feasible solution for decolonization and economic development.
