Fear rules human societies unless those societies are on an upward trajectory. You can recognize a healthy society because little happens, but people focus on their inner lives and the pursuits where they can be brilliant, which for most means doing simple jobs well and then just enjoying life.
We might not recognize an upward society if one walked up and bit us on the — uh, elbow. It would have strong leaders who rarely publicly demonstrated that strength. Most people would be chaste and stay in their hometowns. Activities of the mind and soul would exceed those of the appetites.
It would probably feature more people working from their homes, working fewer hours a day, with men working and women managing the home, with abundant happy children. This society would be homogeneous with one culture, some kind of vague religion which is not written down, and a complex language spoken differently by the different social levels, which would roughly correspond to IQ bands.
Movies, television, current novels, sex, food, music, and entertainment would not take the role that they do today; they would be more ceremonial, honoring what has always worked and can be rediscovered, renewed, and understood anew every generation. The focus would not be on distracting ourselves with external stimulus, but on getting ourselves right inwardly: discipline of behavior, sharpening of the mind, development of the soul, and achieving clarity on the choices one can make that will provide the best life possible.
Modern society on the other hand, as an inverted society, finds itself ruled by rationalization. Since it has no shared assumptions and no goal, people must take what they get and rationalize/justify it as what they want or what is good for them. As a result, all people live under the “fiction absolute” or the idea that the life they are leading is the best one that can be led by them:
Even before I left graduate school I had come to the conclusion that virtually all people live by what I think of as a “fiction-absolute.” Each individual adopts a set of values which, if truly absolute in the world–so ordained by some almighty force–would make not that individual but his group . . . the best of all possible groups, the best of all inner circles. Politicians, the rich, the celebrated, become mere types. Does this apply to “the intellectuals” also? Oh, yes. . . perfectly, all too perfectly.
The human beast’s belief in his own fiction-absolute accounts for one of the most puzzling and in many cases irrational phenomena of our time. I first noticed it when I read a book by Samuel Lubell called The Future of American Politics. Lubell was a political scientist and sociologist who had been as surprised as everybody else by the outcome of the 1948 presidential election. That was the election in which the Democratic incumbent, Harry Truman, was a president whose approval rating had fallen as low as 23 percent. Every survey, every poll, every pundit’s prediction foresaw him buried by the Republican nominee, Thomas E. Dewey. Instead, Truman triumphed in one of the most startling upsets in American political history. Lubell was determined to find out why, and so he set out across the country. When he reached a small Midwestern town that had been founded before the turn of the 19th century by Germans, he was puzzled to learn that the town had gone solidly for Dewey despite the fact that by every rational turn of logic, every economic motivation, Truman would have been a more logical choice. By and by Lubell discovered that the town was still predominantly German. Nobody had ever gotten over the fact that in 1917, a Democrat, President Woodrow Wilson, had declared war on Germany. That had set off a wave of anti-German feeling, anti-German prejudice, and, in the eyes of the people of this town, besmirched their honor as people of German descent. And now, two World Wars later, their minds were fixed on the year 1917, because like all other human beasts, they tended to champion in an irrational way their own set of values, their own fiction absolute. The question Lubell asked was very much like the question that Thomas Frank asked after the election of 2004 in his book What’s the Matter with Kansas? By all economic and political logic, the state of Kansas should have gone to John Kerry, the Democrat, in 2004. But it didn’t. Had Frank only looked back to Samuel Lubell, he would have known why. The 2004 election came down to one state: the state of Ohio. Whoever won that state in the final hours would win the election. Northern Ohio, the big cities of Cleveland, Toledo on the Great Lakes, were solidly for Kerry. But in southern Ohio, from east to west, and in the west was the city of Cincinnati, Ohio went solidly for George Bush. And the reason? That great swath of territory was largely inhabited by the Scots-Irish. And when the Democrats came out in favor of gun control, the Scots-Irish interpreted this as not merely an attack on the proliferation of weaponry in American life but as a denunciation, a besmirching, of their entire way of life, their entire fiction absolute.
Again, the key point:
Each individual adopts a set of values which, if truly absolute in the world–so ordained by some almighty force–would make not that individual but his group . . . the best of all possible groups, the best of all inner circles.
This means that each group has its own micro-culture, and these groups are comprised of layers: ethnicity is the core, then social class, then region, then profession, and finally, social group or activities. A blue collar fisherman of mixed German/Scots-Irish descent will be a far different person from a lower middle class cellular phone salesman of mixed Polish/Irish descent.
When a civilization is thriving, the fiction-absolute does not fall far out of step with reality, so cognitive dissonance is low, and therefore people can start working within society before they understand it and accept their place in it.
In a fear-based civilization, order has been lost, and so those in power use manipulation (control, gaslighting, fear, guilt, shame, lust) to browbeat the herd into unity, obedience, and conformity. For this reason, the fiction-absolute seeks to explain the insane as sanity.
All of this takes us to the situation in which we find ourselves today: people are cheering for the teams that represent their lifestyles, and barely have any idea of a connection to politics, except for a few isolated incidents.
Before we go on, I must apologize for being a terrible writer. Good writers make plain things interesting; I make interesting things plain. This comes from the split in my influences — ancient literature, technical documentation, and philosophical reading — which has me writing more in the analytical than commercial tradition.
Coming from the mold, my approach here breaks down democracy into a conflict of identities. Fundamentally, the Left is correct: in a pluralistic society, all politics are identity politics, and each of us must represent our own group.
This means that the Left will remain oblivious to whatever vote fraud went on in election 2020 or the chances of the Right until the end, and they will preach obvious falsehoods without a trace of self-doubt or awareness of hypocrisy, since to them winning is all, and only their side is right.
As of today, Trump dropped the challenge to America regarding election 2020, which is that this is our last democratic election as a pluralistic society:
“My mind will not change in six months. There was tremendous cheating here,” he warned. “If Republicans allow it to happen, you’ll never have another Republican elected in the history of this country, at a Senate level or at a presidential level.”
In defense of their identity politics groups, Democrats have not just attempted to steal an election, but have colluded with a foreign power (China) to do so. To the Left, any means necessary to win must be considered moral, including treason and surrendering our autonomy in order to have the “correct” System.
We know that they achieved this massive theft by chipping away at the parameters which regulate which votes are considered valid:
In order to steal an election, would-be thieves need a few things to go their way: First, the election needs to be close at the national level — close enough that only a handful of altered state outcomes will change the final results. Second, the margins in those states must also be close — and there must be disputes in those same states that could arguably swing the outcome.
In fact, it looks as if with help from China, the Left created a worldwide panic over COVID-19 that forced the use of mail-in ballots, solely to make it easy to steal the vote and hard to find out where the theft occurred. This shows a reckless lack of concern for our future.
As I have said before, Trump will approach this in layers: first, the obvious irregularities and nasty little cheats; second, the state-wide and county-wide deceptions; finally, the “big steal” that involved voting machines and some kind of communication from overseas.
Where did this communication originate? Some of it at least came from our own people working for the Deep State, or permanent bureaucracy that persists between administrations like the famous “military-industrial complex” or the political machines of the nineteenth century.
Some think there was a military-style raid involved:
It didn’t go down without incident. I haven’t been able to verify it. I want to be careful in that. It’s just coming out. But I understand my initial report is that there were US soldiers killed in that operation. Now, know that was a CIA operation. And so that’s the that’s the very worrisome thing did that occur because of what Mary and I and Alan were notifying on the Sunday and the Monday in different networks that this was going to happen that they were using hammer and scorecard. And so they decided to bounce it overseas.
So the server farms that hammering scorecard were using in the continental United States couldn’t be used. I don’t know that in any way. It makes it more abundant. Because when you start moving that kind of data overseas. Other people look at, but you are saying that was a, you are saying that was a CIA facility, and that that was where the server was taken from by the Special Forces was a CIA facility in Germany.
That’s correct, Frankfurt, Germany. Now, we have all this information. General Plan of course people must realize was the senior military intelligence officer in the US commands. As a Defense Intelligence Agency is a career intelligence officer knows this stuff backwards and forwards in from my experience in the cloud business. This was a trivial operation, relatively speaking, but the magnitude because there were so many people Brandon were involved.
Among other rumors, a couple weeks back this was identified as a raid on a voting machine company who in theory was overseeing our election:
Gohmert said that his former intel contact asked him to send on all of the information that needed to be gathered from Scytl. Gohmert said that he sent the information the following day, November 9. Gohmert then mentioned a tweet written in German that was published on November 8 which alleged that Scytl’s headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany, was raided by members of the U.S. Army.
During the alleged raid, the company’s servers were removed, Gohmert said. Heavy has been unable to find the original tweet but has seen screenshots. Gohmert admits in the video, “I don’t know the truth,” before referencing the alleged raid. The congressman was unable to provide any proof that the raid took place. Scytl was originally headquartered in Barcelona, Spain.
More likely, they got the wrong name, or facilities were being used by a team of American operatives. It is also possible that the company was purchased for cover, and moved to be part of a cluster of American shell companies and false fronts designed to cover intelligence activity:
Gohmert also noted that Scytl had filed for bankruptcy. Spanish outlet La Vanguardia reported in May 2020 the company had $75 million in debts.
This would make Scytl (or whoever the target was) part of the military spying complex the CIA built in Frankfurt, Germany:
The leaks purportedly revealed that a top secret CIA unit used the German city of Frankfurt am Main as the starting point for numerous hacking attacks on Europe, China and the Middle East.
WikiLeaks reported that the group developed trojans and other malicious software in the American Consulate General Office, the largest US consulate in the world. The programs focused on targets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
German daily “Süddeutsche Zeitung” reported the building was known to be home to a vast network of intelligence personnel including CIA agents, NSA spies, military secret service personnel, Department of Homeland Security employees and Secret Service employees. It reported the Americans had also established a dense network of outposts and shell companies in Frankfurt.
Why would the CIA do this? It likes to have plausible deniability, and having a European ally “clean up” would provide lower impact than forcing the Americans to scrub and destroy a facility. It also places the facility in a jurisdictional grey zone: both US and German law apply, but neither are being enforced because each party is trying to avoid the other.
America intelligence services — like every other intelligence service on Earth that can afford to do this — create hubs like this all the time. They also create front companies, both to provide cover stories (“legends”) and to investigate foreign countries.
If we want a parallel to what this voting machine spy complex was doing, we need only look to recent history and how American penetration of cryptography allowed worldwide monitoring:
A first investigation had revealed back in February an elaborate, decades-long set-up, in which the CIA and its German counterpart creamed off the top-secret communications of governments through their hidden control of a Swiss encryption company called Crypto.
Omnisec meanwhile also sold its faulty OC-500 series devices to several federal agencies in Switzerland, including its own intelligence agencies, as well as to Switzerland’s largest bank, UBS, and other private companies in the country, the SRF investigation showed.
According to the revelations in February by SRF, the Washington Post and German broadcaster ZDF, Crypto served for decades as a Trojan horse to spy on governments worldwide.
The company supplied devices for encoded communications to some 120 countries from after World War II to the beginning of this century, including to Iran, South American governments, India and Pakistan.
Having learned from WW2, the Americans wanted to get in before others inundated the market, so they purchased a key company, improved its products so that it would take over the market, and used this gear to not only spy on their targets, but on other intelligence agencies spying on those targets.
Most likely, our government did the same thing with voting machines, but somehow they got themselves a mole. This person either sold out to China for ideological reasons or, more likely, cut them into the intelligence field in a trade for power somewhere else.
All of these dovetail nicely with some of our learning in the postwar world, namely Echelon, an NSA program which used supercomputers with voice recognition to filter international messages and do contact tracing in order to identify enemies of the US.
With this in mind, it is entirely possible that an NSA program run from Frankfurt was responsible for gaming elections worldwide, but the bad guys got ahold of it. Since China sponsors the Left, much as the USSR once sponsored socialists on the American Left, it makes no sense to deny the obvious link here, or how China may have picked up on the unexpected rise in Trump votes and made the 3:00 AM call to Hillary Clinton or whoever is in charge to have them stop counting and drop in lots of fake votes to cloud the waters and camouflage what the Dominion voting systems were doing.
All of this could point toward a coup by an intelligence agency which wants to dominate the Deep State, American government, Democratic Party, and required the help, assistance, or silence of China as it did so. Someone made a deal. A heck of a big deal. Sort of like how the Democrats accepted USSR aid for decades.
In the land of democracy, free states getting taken over by their intelligence agencies seems a rather familiar trope. Deep States creating a Uniparty by bullying out anyone who resists their weird little cult also seems fairly normal. These are bugs, not features, but the Left sees them as features, of democracy.
Trump hired Giuliani in 2018 to prepare for this election. Most likely, they hand-picked a team of experts from existing agencies, selecting those they knew were loyal and not part of the Deep State. They then set up monitoring from the Eisenhower Building, probably disguised as a survey on farm animal droppings or traffic patterns.
At that point, they hauled out the contact-tracing software that the military uses, and applied it to find the likely actors in this drama. They then watched the scam unfold in real time, and could direct their people to seize evidence and start legal actions where anomalies were observed.
If anything was seized in Germany, it was likely a server with logged actions either in voting software or communications. It will show who was logged in and gave the commands to enact the theft of this election. They wanted to get it before it got the Hillary Clinton Email Server treatment.
Trump has made it clear many times that if the other side wants to stay out of jail, they need to simply back down. They would not. This means that he must work through those three layers, and then at the end, when he proves conspiracy with a foreign power to conduct election interference, people start going to jail.
Remember those thousands of sealed indictments. Consider the re-shuffling of defense and espionage positions in the American government. Trump was planning for this, and he used the election as bait to lure out the Deep State so that it would give him the smoking gun of political intrigue:
A former Venezuelan military officer who helped develop the machines testified they could be manipulated. “He knew as soon as the machines were turned off in those key states,” Powell said, that massive support for Trump “had broken the algorithm that had been programmed. So they had to stop counting and backfill the vote with fraudulent mail-in ballots or whatever means they used.”
This same officer, Powell told Fox’s Lou Dobbs on Nov. 16, “was personally in briefings when all of this was discussed and planned, beginning with Hugo Chavez, how it was designed there and then saw it happening in this country.”
Trump thought he would get more than the 64m votes he got last election, but no one correctly anticipated how many more, which required that late-night call to set things right. This gave him a chance to see the kingpin behind the kingpin, which most likely is China.
Other international electors may be involved. It would not be unlike Communists to have set up a capitalist company to steal elections worlwide, and then to have made a deal with Democrats: you let us do whatever we want, and you get to have your candidate be president.
In any case, now is not the time to get weak, as many of our fellow citizens have. This is a good time to be strong, resolute, and push hard for us to do what is right. Either we win this or the country gets ruled by China from now on, so the stakes are a bit high, to put it mildly.
