Biden’s Presidency Will Be A Catalyst For Secession – And Perhaps Civil War

January 20, 2021 208 Comments

By Brandon Smith

Over the past few months I have written a handful of articles which discussed what would probably happen if Joe Biden actually entered the White House and launched his administration. My initial belief was that Trump would refuse to concede and that this would be a trigger for national chaos blamed on conservatives, but I have also noted that Biden’s entry is almost just as disruptive, as it sends a signal to the political left that it is “open season” on anyone that disagrees with their ideology.

Of course, conservatives are not going to simply sit still and be purged and abused, they are going to strike back, and this sets the stage for a number of events and outcomes, some of which are completely unpredictable, even for establishment globalists.

First, though, we need to address how Biden and the globalists are going to create chaos so that they can then demand their own brand of “order”.

In my article ‘A Biden Presidency Will Mean A Faster US Collapse’, published in October, I outlined why the ongoing economic crisis will accelerate in the wake of a Biden takeover. More specifically, I predicted that Biden would implement a federal covid lockdown, probably within the first year of his presidency, similar to the Level 4 lockdowns implemented in Europe and Australia. Biden may lure Americans into complacency with promises of “relief” and less restrictions in his first couple months, but he will then use the rather convenient news of “covid mutations” to bring in even harsher mandates.

Such a lockdown, if Americans submit, would mean an even larger spike in unemployment, a loss of hundreds of thousands of small businesses as well as a huge loss in tax revenues for some states (mostly blue states).

Another scenario is that Biden leaves the lockdowns in the hands of state governments, but pursues a nationwide program for medical passports. The passport, of course, would require people to take the vaccine and accept contact tracing apps on their phones; meaning 24/7 surveillance on the public. At least 30% of Americans have said in polling that they will refuse the vaccines outright. Another 60% have said they are wary of the vaccines and need proof of their effectiveness. So, the medical passports will lead to millions of people being denied participation in the mainstream economy and collapse happens anyway.

In other words, the elites are going to try to hold the economy hostage while telling the public that if we don’t accept medical tyranny it will be OUR FAULT if the system breaks down.

The economic crisis, however, started long before the pandemic, long before Biden and long before Trump. It has been building since the credit crash of 2008, and in the 12 years since, the Federal Reserve and other central banks have been pumping out trillions in stimulus while encouraging non-stop debt accumulation. Right before the beginning of the pandemic, the US was suffering from the highest corporate debt in history, the highest consumer debt in history as well as the highest national debt in history.

What we are witnessing right now is the final phase of a collapse scenario that was more than a decade in the making, and Biden is about to help finish the job.

Biden will no doubt seek to hyperinflate the dollar in the name of offsetting the losses and keep things afloat for a short time, but the real agenda will be to trigger price spikes in goods as well as eventually killing the dollar altogether. No amount of stimulus will stop the crash that has already been set in motion; the bailout measures from this point on are Kabuki theater, a show put on for the masses to make us believe that the government and the banks “did everything they could” to save us. The elites have no intention of stalling or stopping the collapse; their “great reset” demands it.

One’s initial assumption would be that Biden would then take the blame for the economic crisis, but it appears that the establishment is going to set up a Herbert Hoover narrative and lay all the blame squarely on Trump and conservatives. In the past I have noted that Trump’s trajectory was very similar to Herbert Hoover’s, in that he was a business mogul and Republican that pushed for corporate tax cut policies and also extensive tariff’s.

Hoover also served only one term, taking the blame for the crash of 1929 and the advent of the Great Depression, even though the crash was primarily caused by the Federal Reserve’s ultra low interest rates and easy money, followed by a series of rate hikes (a fact which former Fed chairman Ben Bernanke would later openly admit to in 2002). This launched the three term dominion of Franklin D. Roosevelt, one of the most communistic presidents in our history and the initiator of socialist programs which have since buried the American public in Quadrillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities.

Biden’s latest statements indicate he will be introducing numerous executive orders to “correct the mistakes of the Trump administration”, thereby implanting the idea that whatever happens next is Trump’s fault. The “Reset” globalists and their central banking partners will have to bring down the US economy very quickly under a Biden White House. Why? Because if they wait, or if they try to drag out the collapse and the worst happens a few years down the road, Biden and the globalists will get the blame. They MUST crash the old world order now so that Trump and conservatives can be saddled with the consequences.

The strategy seems to be this: Demonize conservatives as much as possible as quickly as possible so that our purge from social platforms can be rationalized. When we are incapable of defending ourselves in the public sphere because we have been removed from the internet, the establishment and leftists can blame us for everything going wrong. The public would have no access to any other points of view or contradictory facts and evidence because the alternative media will be gone. We become the monsters, the bogeymen and the source of all American suffering.

We didn’t fall into the trap of supporting martial law measures during the BLM riots, so this must be Plan B.

Will their plan work? I doubt it. Just as the globalist rollout of the pandemic lockdowns and medical tyranny is failing to gain traction in the US as huge numbers of people refuse to take the questionable vaccines, I suspect millions upon millions of Americans are already savvy to the propaganda schemes of the establishment and will not buy in. But, that doesn’t mean the elites won’t try it anyway.

In early November in Issue #47 of my newsletter, The Wild Bunch Dispatch, I war gamed the Biden scenario extensively and concluded that if he was to enter the White House it would have to be followed by a massive erasure of conservative media platforms from the internet. I stated that:

If Biden does indeed enter the White House and take control of the presidency, expect certain consequences right away: A complete full spectrum censorship campaign of conservative news sources will be undertaken by tech companies and government. There is no way Biden and the democrats could keep control of the situation while conservatives are able to share information in real time. Do not be surprised if web providers suddenly start kicking conservative sites off their servers, just as Bitchute (a YouTube alternative) was kicked off their server for 24 hours on election night.”

This is already happening, and Biden hasn’t even stepped foot into the role of “commander and chief” yet. The coordinated effort by Big Tech to remove Parler, a Twitter alternative, from the web completely was not all that surprising. Luckily, Parler will be back up and running by the end of the month, but the censorship campaign is only going to get worse from here on. Biden WILL support and defend the censorship efforts by Big Tech and the fascist marriage between government and the corporate world will be complete.

To summarize, the globalists have to silence us before they can effectively demonize us. The truth is on our side; facts and logic are on our side. They can’t win the war of ideas if we are allowed to speak; this is why they are so desperate to silence us.

Sweeping gun control measures will be issued by Biden, but only after the conservative purge from the internet is close to finished. If conservatives are isolated from one another in terms of communication, this makes it harder to organize a defense against aggressive gun confiscation. Biden will most likely try to exploit Red Flag gun laws first, this would allow federal agencies to declare anyone to be “a threat to public safety” without due process, and have their guns taken away preemptively.

There is an obvious outcome to all of these actions and I don’t think it’s far fetched to suggest that conservative counties and states will demand secession. At the very least, conservatives are going to continue to relocate to red states and red counties, just so they can continue to do business and make a living without government interference. There’s no way that most conservatives controlled states or counties are going to submit to federal lockdown mandates or medical passports, and economies in conservative regions are going to remain stable because of this while blue states are going to crumble.

Biden will seek to retaliate against conservative controlled areas of the country in response.

There comes a point when it is impossible for those that value freedom, logic and reason to live side-by-side with those that are irrationally obsessed with control. The American constitutional framework in particular was designed to prevent collectivism from overriding individual liberties, but if the system is sabotaged through subversion and the Bill of Rights is violated, then maintaining the system is no longer plausible.

The best option for a number of reasons is to separate. Secession is often referred to as “running away” from a cultural problem, but this is an ignorant way of looking at it.

We are reaching a stage right now in the US where it will be virtually impossible to voice political concerns without risking retribution. If you are a conservative, you will be targeted.

If conservatives and moderates migrate away from leftist controlled areas and congregate in red states or red counties, then it will be difficult for leftists to attack them for voicing their views. If your employer is a conservative, then he’s not going to care if a leftist mob demands you be fired. If you own a business in a conservative community, then the people that live there will continue as your customers regardless of what leftists say about you.

Conservatives and moderates MUST start to physically separate from the political left. We must remove ourselves from the blood sucking parasites that have attached themselves to us. This allows us to remain free to think and speak as we like, and it takes all power away from leftists to hurt us by disrupting our means of making a living.

Secession is a more extreme measure, but it WILL become necessary if leftists refuse to accept that we are no longer participating in their games of fear and subterfuge. Leftists are collectivist by nature, and collectivists see people as property. Walking away is not an option in their minds. So, though we might successfully separate, this would only be the beginning of the battle.

The important thing is to first make sure that conservatives KNOW that there are places they can go where their civil rights are valued and defended. If conservatives feel completely isolated and alone, many will give up, go dark and pray they are not discovered. This is unacceptable.

The advantage of secession is clear; by separating, conservatives force the enemy to come to them, on ground they have prepared. The leftists will be the aggressors by default. They will try to present the situation otherwise, but it won’t matter. We will have the moral high ground as well as the superior strategic position.

There are multiple narratives that will be used to demonize the secession movement beyond the terrorism angle. In particular, I think the government and the media will try to tie secession to “foreign entities”. In other words, they will claim the secession movement is being funded or supported by Russia, or some other foreign power. This is what almost every government in history has done when faced with a viable secession or rebellion that could threaten their control – They accuse the people that want to separate of being agents for evil outsiders.

It doesn’t matter.

Conservatives cannot live with leftists, their cultism and zealotry has made it impossible. And, we will not live under a globalist tyranny built around their reset agenda. Separation allows us to consolidate for defense, and protects us economically. It is the only way to ensure that we remain free.

The globalists and the leftists will try to stop us; they can’t help themselves. They are insane, after all. This will lead to a war many of us have been expecting for quite some time. At the very least, with separation and secession we will be in the best possible position to stop them. If we remain isolated from each other, the fight will be over before it even begins.

    Given the establishment’s fondness of telegraphing their coming intentions on the covers of “World in [year]” issues of The Economist, I couldn’t help but notice that they had a torn American flag among their icons. It seems that they’re aware of the possibility of some manner of mass secessionist sentiment arising from their actions.

    I’ll be interested in seeing your writings this year on recommended strategies for secession at various levels. Since the globalists did a fine job hijacking secessionist movements in the former USSR and Yugoslavia to their ends, so knowing pitfalls to avoid similar hijackings will be crucial for the Liberty movement to truly succeed from this coming upheaval.

    • Brandon Smith January 20, 2021 at 3:35 pm

      Rule #1 for secession: Keep Trump out of it. The movement started long before Trump and is far bigger than Trump, and must never become a cult of personality.

      • Tim C January 20, 2021 at 4:58 pm

        If there was any hope or potential argument that Trump was more than a buffoon at best and (as you’ve argued) part of the plan at worst, that has quite obviously been dashed by his complete failure to do a damn thing of any consequence since 11/3.

        • Brandon Smith January 20, 2021 at 5:26 pm

          I agree. I think my point on Trump has been made. Luckily, it seems the elites realized we were not going to support a martial law action under Trump, so they have moved to Plan B, which is to try to demonize hundreds of millions of conservative and moderate Americans so that they can bring in martial law under Biden. I think in their arrogance they have no idea what they are stepping into.

          • Black Cat January 20, 2021 at 7:29 pm

            As has been stated here many times and many ways. If any of you are still clinging to any sort of hope or representation from anyone or anything from Washington D.C. then now it is time to look in the mirror, accept that it is up to us to fix this mess, commit , organize and take action for yourselves and our children’s liberty. Game face motha fuckas, call in your warriors spirit!

          • Gct January 21, 2021 at 12:03 pm

            I agree that secession is probably the only option remaining, but I don’t share your anti-Trump sentiment. You have come to the conclusion, in so many word, that it is no longer possible to work with or within the boundaries of the constitution or normal civic engagement, “There comes a point when it is impossible for those that value freedom, logic and reason to live side-by-side with those that are irrationally obsessed with control. The American constitutional framework in particular was designed to prevent collectivism from overriding individual liberties, but if the system is sabotaged through subversion and the Bill of Rights is violated, then maintaining the system is no longer plausible.”. You are very correct about this. And being so, would it not be appropriate to give Trump a break for his apparent inaction ? Believe me, I’m as angry as anyone about this mess, but pretty much everyone who had any ability to legally stop this eventually turned their back on Trump. Even the SCOTUS bums he appointed. I think Trump was mostly naïve in his belief that there was still enough honor and courage left in DC to back him up, not realizing just how deep the corruption runs. So, I’m willing to give him a break. But think as you choose.

            Either way, Trump represents more than a man, but a movement that has not lost its vibrancy. He has in a way, become a great dividing line between the ‘us and them’. And that’s exactly what you say we need – a coalescing of conservatives. Such a secession movement could use this momentum. Indeed, we are here because of Trump; because 75 million who voted for him believe they were cheated out of their vote. Also, secession is often also a war, a military action and, like a limited martial law, rights can be trampled.

            Well, I said my peace. I’m on board with secession though. I’ll move to wherever is occurs. But where do you believe it is most likely to occur ? Even Texas has its own floating turds to clog up the works. May God be with you.

          • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 2:04 pm

            Mmm..no, Trump is a footnote in the history of the Liberty Movement, nothing more. He rode the wave of our efforts over the past two decades, and I suspect he was put in place by the globalists to lure conservatives into either inaction, or into supporting martial law. His cabinet was loaded with globalists for the past 4 years. He had his chances to get rid of them, and he did not. I’m not interested in turning the liberty movement into a cult of personality and there is no need for us to revolve around Trump. It’s time for people to put on their big boy pants and realize WE are responsible for fighting this fight; no one else.

          • Black Cat January 21, 2021 at 7:07 pm

            GCT,
            I respect your opinion and would rather be your brother than any enemy.
            Regardless of who Trump is as a man, as a President, one man can do little against such a long presence of geed, corruption, incompetence in Washington, Wall St. etc. This obviously has been going on for a long time but so has the movement of Liberty, long before Trump, for those who have had their eyes opened long ago. He may be responsible for awakening the newly initiated but we’ve been here for 20 plus years. A concise set of ethical principles as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution represents precisely what I’m talking about, not a man, not a religion, not an unquestioned belief structure. My point is no matter who’s in Washington D.C. that den of inequity is a lost cause, stop beating the dead horse and stop looking for a savior. Your reflection is your most honest judge.

          • TERRENCE DEAGLE January 22, 2021 at 4:10 am

            This is the best essay I have ever seen on Secession and tying everything together so succinctly. It seems that the Lone Star state is at the forefront of this movement. Do you think there will be a referendum to secede in Texas?

          • Phillip January 22, 2021 at 11:34 am

            I wanted President Trump to invoke martial law. I have always been against it, but in this circumstance I believe would have been justified. Then we could have had some real justice in this nation and put a hurt on the deep state and thier boot lickers.

          • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 1:59 pm

            The problem is that Trump was SURROUNDED by deep state elites and globalists in his cabinet, so giving him dictatorial power would have been the same as giving THEM dictatorial power. This fight will never be won by bottlenecking the movement into the hands of a single man. In fact, revolving everything around Trump almost destroyed the liberty movement.

      • oldbat January 20, 2021 at 11:35 pm

        miltary and nukes. who gets them?

      • Blagostwin January 21, 2021 at 2:55 am

        Trump was the candidate the Tea Party accepted and was the best spokesman for that movement. I think over all he’s done a fine job. Who else could have stood up to the malicious onslaught he’s endured? He was completely surrounded by turncoats and traitors. Military support? Generals like Milley, Mattis, McMaster and Kelly. I think not, Obama changed that military. The party clearly didn’t back him, because their feckless and gutless. He was probably threatened with impeachment in the Senate and prosecution if he continued moving against them. One man can’t do it all. BTW good article.

        • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 2:27 pm

          Bottom line: Trump was working directly with the globalists. This cannot be denied. It is fact. Trump was a distraction from what really needed to be done.

          • Phillip January 22, 2021 at 11:45 am

            I have told my Wife many times years ago, that once you have a corrupt congress, which we have, a corrupt white house, which we have, and we have a corrupt Supreme Court which we have, this nation as we knew it would no longer exist. That time is now. I am all for succession if it’s an alternative to a communist country. But all I hear from conservatives hosts on the radio is that we need to start at the state and local level to get things changed. If a corrupt congress wants to pass an unconstitutional law and a corrupt illegitimate president signs it and someone challenges it in court, a corrupt Supreme Court will rule it Constitutional.

          • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 1:56 pm

            Mainstream GOP Republicans had their chance and they achieved nothing; there’s no reason to listen to their advice any longer. The alternative media was right all along on where all of this was headed. If conservatives want to get involved in politics at the local level that’s fine, but the collapse is going to move fast from here on. A secession movement that bypasses political theater is what is needed. Putting pressure on local and state governments to ignore Biden’s executive orders would be the closest thing to politics that would be helpful at this time.

          • Bruce January 23, 2021 at 2:27 am

            I told my wife when Trump threw his hat into the political arena back in 2016, he was a Trojan horse. She asked how do you know? I replied; Trump is a typical New York gangster: he talks out both sides of his mouth.

        • Ron R January 21, 2021 at 4:30 pm

          Look at who Trump pardoned. Look at who he did not pardon. Look at who he appointed as medical advisors, like I’ve said repeatedly. Look at who urged his followers to march on the capital, and he’d go with them! Except… he didn’t. Look at who used Twitter as his only means of communicating with the outside world other than his rallies and press conferences, and should have known that Twitter would drop the hammer on him. Look at who drained ANY part of the swamp. Oh yeah, not him. Look at who appointed the FBI director who Biden is keeping. Tells you all you need to know. Look at who feigned ignorance about QAnon and allowing his supporters to believe in this cult. Look who mishandled the covid-19 debacle from the start. Look who went into the WH with a bang – and out with a whimper.

          • Black Cat January 21, 2021 at 8:57 pm

            Ron R states it plain and simple.
            No one likes being duped, lied to, or admitting they’ve been played the fool. The only path to real salvation is precisely this; acceptance of the most grievous of our current circumstances that we now face and though at first depressing, later the uplifting and freeing realization that the responsibility is yours. Fire the torches of liberty. Leaders are not elected, anointed or appointed, Leaders earn their positions!

          • Cricket January 22, 2021 at 5:56 am

            In hindsight your arguments have merit. But in 2016 would you have rather seen Hillary Clinton instead of Trump? I am not so critical of Trump; realising he has always been about persuasion and the next deal, rather than systems and change. He was never the Messiah that many thought, that is for sure.

            George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison et al were the oligarchs of their time. Oligarchs per se are not the enemy; just the current crop of techno-fascists that currently inhabit the American landscape.

          • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 2:18 pm

            The question is irrelevant because the elites controlled both. George Washington and other founding fathers were not “oligarchs” – They made sure the power was in the hands of the American people to choose what government they wanted. That is the opposite of an “oligarch”.

          • Cricket January 23, 2021 at 2:51 am

            Point taken. But whether one calls them ‘oligarchs’ or ‘elites’, what I am saying is that, in my experience, a movement and a culture has a much greater chance of success if the elites’ and people’s interests are aligned.

            I’ve worked throughout the world; I’ve worked under monarchies, republican systems and parliamentary systems, sometimes in the private sector, sometimes in high government levels. I’ve seen countries collapse. I’ve seen martial law. I’ve travelled behind the former ‘iron-curtain’ and seen first-hand the utter destruction that communism brings. Communism arises theoretically as a foil to overbearing elites and oligarchs. In reality the elites just change from one form of power to another, or a new crop of ruling elites arise that are more powerful (tyrannical) than anything that preceded them. Elites will always be there; it is in the nature of human society.

            One thing that I observed is that stability and success requires an alignment of the interests of the elites and the people and wise leaders recognise this fact.
            This alignment occurred (perhaps uniquely historically speaking) in America. I doubt it will ever happen again. There were Monarchists among those elites. Even Thomas Jefferson initially did not want to leave the election of the President up to the people, but instead to the legislatures, as he did not believe the common man would have access to the information needed to make such a decision wisely; a view that has merit but did not win out. But to a man, the elites had an enlightened view (for their time) and worked towards a positive outcome for this great nation.
            We don’t have many (if any) of these types of elites around anymore; at least those of the current generation. We instead have a crop of spoiled, dull, anti-human, Malthusian technocrats wielding way too much power with far too little intelligence and zero wisdom.

            Coming back to Trump, I do not believe that he is part of a plan or a pied piper. I think that he was actually prepared to lay it all on the line to turn the country around. It was a naive view, and he could still lose it all. It was my personal hope that he would succeed in creating this alignment, or bridge, between the elites and the people. But the Democrats recognised this imminent danger and at the moment have wrecked it. For the moment. This is why both parties want to destroy him at any cost.

            Am I saying that Trump should be a leader of such a movement? Not really. But the people should not discard him. To me he represents an opportunity that we cannot afford to ignore. The current (fragile) elites are scared to death of this possibility. They will burn this country down before they let that happen.

            If we want to bring this country back to it’s founding principles again, we are going to have to be smart, real smart, about how we go about it.

            In many respects Biden is the perfect face of this current, fragile gaggle of competing elite interests. Think about it: An angry decrepit, demented, vacant, frail old man has been installed by these elites as the face of the resistance. How appropriate.

          • Brandon Smith January 23, 2021 at 3:38 am

            Sorry, but the founding fathers don’t qualify as “oligarchs” in even the remotest way. Oligarchs do not fight revolutions and put themselves at risk just to hand governance over to the people. Trump’s cabinet was loaded with globalists and he accomplished nothing tangible. Any policy he initiated was something that could be easily reversed. If you want to fight the globalists, working within their system is not how you do it, and obviously you do not bring dozens of them into the White House. No more excuses for Trump; I’m tired of hearing them after 4 years.

            Also, sometimes it’s a waste of time trying to play “4D chess”; sometimes to deal with a bully you just need to punch him in the mouth real hard. Separate, secession, and if they come after you, you put them down. Make them afraid – that is the answer.

            Trump’s political appointments could be understood by the vagaries of the Republican party who never wanted Trump to be President in any case. He could not appoint without the Senate approval and they threw a wrench in the cogs at every opportunity.
            But I find his pardons very troubling. Probably the worst pardon selection of any President, including Clinton. I didn’t expect him to pardon people because their names were buzzing around the Twittersphere, but I would have at least thought that he would have ensured there was a high degree of merit to them.
            For this reason alone if he ran for President again I wouldn’t want to even primary him (spoiler: I don’t think that he will). There are better candidates out there. The power of the pardon is one of the greatest unchecked powers that a President has, and in my opinion, he squandered it.

        Is there a succession movement afoot in the Pacific Northwest? I’ve already signed the Petition for Eastern Washington, Oregon and Idaho that was started in 2016. I’m thinking that Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas would join easily.

        • Gary C January 24, 2021 at 6:38 pm

          After cancellation of Keystone XL you now have Western Canada who wants out of Canada. Dealing with Liberal provinces is like dealing with Democratic States who
          are financially irresponsible, and share no conservative values.
          Alaska, Western Canada, Montana, Dakota, Nebraska, Idaho, Texas, etc that is one hell
          Of a economic power house, with immense natural resources, especially oil & natural
          gas.
          If we do not get together COLLECTIVELY in North America we are doomed as the globalists
          now have both countries divided, which is exactly what they want.

      • Steve Smith January 24, 2021 at 3:22 pm

        Agreed. The goal should be separation, by whatever means proves practicable (with secession being just one possibility), with the purpose being to allow people of differing visions and values to peacefully coexist within America’s boundaries. It should not be the project of a single political party or individual. To the extent possible it should be made a “win-win” for the greatest number of Americans. I suggest calling for decentralization as a start: https://www.change.org/DecentralizeUS

        • Brandon Smith January 24, 2021 at 3:41 pm

          That would be nice, but remember, we’re dealing with a cult of narcissistic sociopaths, so it’s unlikely that they will allow a transition to decentralization to be peaceful. We’re going to have to fight for our freedoms sooner or later.

            My concern is that we are being manipulated to fight the left so that the Biden Regime can bring in the “UN PeaceKeepers” as an excuse for solidifying the World Economic Forums Global Government.

          • Brandon Smith March 9, 2021 at 1:01 am

            That might be a possibility but that would mean the globalists assume they can control the outcome of such a war. I can only hope they are that arrogant.

      • Jeff Martin January 27, 2021 at 2:28 pm

        Absolutely, keep Trump out of it. A different approach to secession would be just to ignore the federal government. Red states band together in trade. Each state set up it’s own state bank. Refuse to send money to the federal government. Ramp up our respective National Guards. Transfer (confiscate) federal military (Reserve units) to the state. On and On. Pretty much invoke the 10 Amendment to the Constitution by siding the importance of the federal government. Right now their sacred poopless in DC. We just need organization.

        Brandon, I live between you and Steve Quayle, just outside the Socialist Republic of Missoula. With a friendly governor and legislature, we could get a lot of things accomplished this session.

    • Pamela McKenna January 21, 2021 at 6:42 pm

      I am curious to see if Texas follows through with their initial cries to secede. I am very interested in the whole process. This will be an area that I will move to, if they actually follow through.

      • Alan January 22, 2021 at 6:21 am

        We have had the plan of secession for a long time. Check out the TNM. Its getting stronger but I have my doubts as we have our own deep state traitors. I think we have enough patriots to force the issue when we are forced in a corner.

    • Kendall January 22, 2021 at 3:53 am

      For secession to be successful at a macro – or national – level – it must first become a fait accompli at a local – or county – level.

      What does that mean in practice?

      It means the first step to a successful secession is for RED COUNTIES (and as we all know they are numerous right across the country) in BLUE STATES to leave these States and join neighbouring RED STATES.

      This both STRENGTHENS RED STATES and at the same time WEAKENS BLUE STATES.

      Perhaps most importantly it increases the GEOGRAPHICAL POWER of RED STATES immeasurably.

      More later.

      • Kendall January 23, 2021 at 10:19 pm

        The solution to the problems plaguing the United States at the minute is ultimately a matter of “Power” – and who controls the high ground controls the “Power”.

        There are of course many aspects to that Power, and many different types of high ground to exercise that power from – there is Political Power, Military Power, Logistical Power, Organisational Power, Judicial Power, Media Power, Cultural Power, Demographic Power – and there is also Geographical Power.

        All these sorts of Power are interlinked and feed off each other, but Geographical Power is a large vector that can be determinative in how other sources of Power interact and play off each other in the resolution of Power between different Power Centres – which are subsets of the above listed types of Power.

        In particular, when it comes to Geographical Power it is about who controls what ground.

        In the United States this concept can be (and there are of course other ways tied into Military & Logistical Power that this can also be expressed) devolved to a Red State vs. Blue State Argument – about half the States (which tend to be in the middle and south) are Red States, and about half the States (which tend to be on each coast and also the Upper MidWest to some degree) – tend to be Blue States.

        However – any look at a Map of the United States at a County Level by Red County/Blue County shows that there are many many many many Red Counties covering the majority of land in Blue States.

        At a County Level the advantage for Red vis-à-vis Blue is overwhelming in a Geographical Power sense – but nonetheless these Red Counties often find themselves under the jurisdiction of Blue power structures centred in Big Blue cities.

        So what to do?

        In any Power Struggle holding the most land and holding that Geographical Power is a key logistical, political and military factor in exercising Power – Geographical Power feeds these other sources of Power directly.

        The fact is – these Red Counties need to be ‘liberated’ from their Blue City overlords and join with like-minded patriots in neighboring Red States.

        There is no desire, nor appetite, nor frankly political will to create new states which introduces a whole other set of issues – it is better for Red Counties in Blue States to exercise their rights self-determination and band together and join with neighboring Red States to exercise their Geographical & Political Power.

        Here follows some examples of Red Counties that should seek self-determination and secede from their Blue State “Prisons” and join neighboring Red States.

    • Steffen Ritter January 27, 2021 at 9:39 am

      I concur with your statements, entirely. Indeed, globalist establishments have been “praying” to whatever deity they consider to be valid for most of the decades of my life for the torn American flag and whatever that might portend. Those of us who support the idea of the secession movement need to be aware of what global forces, especially China, might be arrayed against us.

      All that I’ve ever desired in my life was liberty, and the means to defend it.

  • PG January 20, 2021 at 4:34 pm

    Problem is the left likely already war-gamed secession. Because we are seeing secession right now. In process. You can see it in real estate valuations. I love the idea of secession. But it seems that the boot to the neck needs to be now.

    • Brandon Smith January 20, 2021 at 4:39 pm

      They can war-game all they like, but it won’t help them. The Event 201 war-game didn’t help them predict the amount of resistance to the lockdowns and vaccines; they weren’t even able to correctly predict the death rate of a virus they most likely engineered. There’s no way for them to predict how secession will unfold unless they are able to co-opt the movement, which is something I, for one, will not allow.

  • PG January 20, 2021 at 4:50 pm

    I think we are all just naturally exiting. The beauty of the authoritarian covid response is that the left made the decision easy. Of course we can’t live like this. But at some point we will have to stand up to this nonsense. What I see is the left is pushing that conflict. I think they are confident that they own the military, and they are ready to use it. Don’t mean to be a downer. But this feels like their takeover moment.

    • Brandon Smith January 20, 2021 at 5:20 pm

      The thing is, they don’t own the military. That’s why Biden’s people had to carefully vet thousands of National Guardsmen just to set up the security for his inauguration. The majority of military and police are conservative. I say, good luck to the leftists. Do they really think they can force those soldiers to fight or kill their own people? Not a chance…

      • PG January 20, 2021 at 5:35 pm

        I’ve heard that argument, and I acknowledge it, and I frankly lean on it.

      • stuxnet January 20, 2021 at 6:07 pm

        The only thing that gives me pause with this argument is that the dominant ideology of an institution can be manipulated given time and a few crises to steamroll changes along, which is something you have brought up in the past. While the active rank-and-file of the military are still majority conservative, it’s certainly not as rock-solid as in past decades.

        If the Establishment really intends to try and collapse a process of ideological replacement of the military that took Erdogan 15 years and building a parallel militarized police force in Turkey in about as many months, I wouldn’t put it past them trying something like dusting off the playbook you mentioned that they seemed to be gearing up to run with Syria under Obama, or the one involving North Korea that they were flirting with prior to 2018.

        In that scenario, an ideological replacement could be artificially created by bogging down ideologically unfriendly servicemen, while keeping the boots on the homefront staffed by compliant lackeys. We’ve already seen Azerbaijan go to war with Armenia last year to distract its restive population, and with all the open war pigs in Biden’s government, I wouldn’t put it past the Establishment to launch such a war and immediately try to pin it on failed and hopelessly naive Trump foreign policy.

        • Brandon Smith January 20, 2021 at 9:40 pm

          I doubt it. If the military is absorbed overseas then there is little chance they could ever be used to simultaneously enforce martial law, even if they were inclined to do so, which a large number of them are not. Trying to employ only leftist friendly military forces on US soil would actually make our job easier. Then there would be no question or hesitancy as to what needs to be done with them. Good luck finding enough far-left wing nut soldiers to deal with the tens of millions of conservative US gun owners that would eradicate them regardless of how much technology they had at their disposal. The leftists have nothing, they are pufferfish, a paper tiger. What is more likely is that Biden would call on the UN to intervene after the country is divided. This is when the REAL fight would begin.

          • skipNclair Barker January 21, 2021 at 7:33 am

            For decades they have been asking a question to those signing up and or those going to re up this question, if asked or ordered to do so would you fire on American citizens? I would think that more than we can imagine would do so. I personally know of two that did not re up because of this. I believe this program started decades ago at the Twenty nine palms base in Calif.

          • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 2:14 pm

            That was a limited poll, not a question they ask all military personnel, and we have no idea how people answered. The fact remains that the vast majority of military people are conservative or come from conservative families. And, even if a large portion of the military did turn on us, there’s always guerilla tactics. The Taliban has had our military stalled in Afghanistan for years with nothing but AKs and old weaponry. What do you think millions of well trained military veterans and liberty people will be able to do with modern weaponry?

          • Swrichmond January 21, 2021 at 8:33 am

            agree. I fully expect tje leftists to ask for UN help suppressing dissent in CONUS. Those troops would have to get here somehow, air or ship. Would they make it? Or would US mil defend CONUS from this?

        • Capthank January 21, 2021 at 10:14 am

          They may try and implement martial law, but they won’t have much success. I served 4 years active duty as a C-130 loadmaster. The many mistakes I saw take place would blow your mind, and I certainly made my share.
          One has to remember the military is made up of mostly young people with very limited life experience. They are able to do what they do because so much of it is extremely task oriented. The job that one is trained and able to do in the civilian world would take 2, 3, or more military personnel to do.
          Case in point. To maintain aircraft in the military there are maintenance technicians who just work on engines. Some just work on avionics. Others primarily work on hydraulics, etc. In civilian aviation any A&P rated mechanic can do and does any of those jobs and many more.

        • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 6:29 pm

          This is a common misconception. The term “false left/right paradigm” does NOT mean that there is no political left or right. In fact, at the bottom of the pyramid MANY people are committed to either freedom, or collectivism and control. I’m not going to pretend like the leftist communists are not a problem or don’t exist. They do, and they need to be dealt with because they seek to dominate or destroy everything they touch. It’s the ELITES at the TOP of the pyramid that do not have political affiliations; they have their own agenda and they are more than willing to sacrifice dumb leftists to achieve their goals. I’m sorry to say, but the leftists are too far gone to save – They are useful idiots for the globalists, and this will not change. We are not on the same side and never will be. It is unlikely any of them will survive what is coming anyway, as most of them are useless in a crisis.

      • Derick January 22, 2021 at 6:28 am

        That’s why Biden has befriended China or vice versa, They will be the force to irradicate secession. Taking our guns is the main thing we must fight. If we refuse to disarm, The “Red Dawn” effect will be our Savior. Trump was our air raid siren to wake us from the woke left movement. I think he deserves at least that accalade…who would you want to lead the seceded states? Bannon?, Cruz?, Jordon?, The Patriot Party will form and we need Leaders, If not Trump how about YOU?

        • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 2:14 pm

          I think Biden will actually continue tensions with China rather than work with them. this would make it easier for the globalists to crash the dollar; by pushing China to dump it as the world reserve currency. I’m not too worried about the Chinese, they barely have a Navy and their soldiers have zero combat experience. Trump was NOT responsible for the counter-movement against the SJWs; Trump rode on the backs of the alternative media which has been fighting that fight for years. We were already overtaking the leftists when Trump arrived on the scene. I think it would be foolish to follow a single leader in anything; I don’t really understand why some conservatives continue desperately searching for a white knight to tell them what to do. I think it’s more likely that the movement will be led by a collection or council of liberty minded people with experience and knowledge. The liberty movement already exists; we don’t need a “patriot party”. Trump had his chance and he accomplished nothing in terms of fighting the globalists. Time for us to move on without him.

    A lot of this hinges on an economic collapse leading to a Great Reset.

    There’s no way they’re hiking interest rates, Yellen and the Fed already on record that rates will be kept flat for years.

    • Brandon Smith January 20, 2021 at 9:33 pm

      Oh, they can still raise rates and claim that bond yields forced them to do so, but I think what will happen is the dollar will hyperinlflate and lose world reserve status. This alone would be the final nail in the coffin for the US economy.

      • dknagno January 21, 2021 at 3:08 am

          California’s dysfunctional government seems to be a telling example. According to experts, it has 2-10 times as many employees as necessary. It has abandoned reasonable plans for water management and spends huge amount buying votes. One recent example was this: ““In light of recent media reports that California Secretary of State Alex Padilla is now the front-runner to be appointed to California’s open United States Senate seat, we are writing to request a member-level briefing on the status of your review of the highly questionable $35 million contract for voter contact the California Secretary of State’s Office awarded to SKD Knickerbocker, Joe Biden’s main election campaign advisory firm….” That money was budgeted for “voter outreach” not for funding a Democrat campaign.

    • Cricket January 21, 2021 at 11:21 am

      Despite all the negatives otherwise around the dollar, it is the only currency that has deep enough markets for international investors to park their reserves. No other economy and currency comes close. There are no alternatives at the moment.

      The only way the dollar would collapse is by the political collapse of the US, causing a global crisis of confidence in the dollar. A serious threat of succession by the Red States could trigger this event. Something to think about.

      • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 1:45 pm

        The dollar will collapse anyway. It IS collapsing right now. Secession or no secession, the elites are moving everything into a cashless society and a digital one world currency. They already have this system ready to replace the dollar as world reserve. It would be foolish to avoid secession just to avoid blame for the collapse of the dollar, which is going to happen regardless.

        • Cricket January 21, 2021 at 2:32 pm

          US Dollar is only 3% physical and 97% electronic. It’s already digital and near cashless, for all practical purposes. I’m not suggesting that secession should be avoided; quite the opposite. Thinking that just the mere threat of secession could collapse the dollar followed closely by the Fed, Banks, Wall St and ultimately their syncophants, the Dems. With 30,000 troops in BonP and the threat of the nation/dollar being destroyed …

          • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 2:38 pm

            The dollar is not “digital”; those dollars sent between accounts are still supposed to represent physical currency that can be removed from the banks. A true digital currency will not be exchangeable for physical money. THIS is what the elites want. The dollar’s days are almost done. This is a fact. The globalists have openly admitted this is the plan.

The side of good and truth is often much more subtle in it’s influences than the side of darkness.

          • Dan Bear January 23, 2021 at 11:55 am

            I think it’s a bit of an exaggeration to claim flatly that Jesus has done nothing for 2000 years. In that time, Christianity grew and grew, civilization was gradually learned and refined, the Roman Empire collapsed to eventually be replaced by nations of Europe. Nations learned to somehow get along better. And the final culmination was the formation of the USA, possibly the largest, most civilized civilization the planet has ever seen when combined with its influence across the globe.
            I won’t argue whether or not Jesus had anything to do with that, aside from the prevalence of Christians in the population of today’s civilization, but to state categorically that he’s done nothing is not warranted.
            To evolve from small regional tribes constantly at war with one another to groups of hundreds of millions of people living and coordinating peacefully together is quite a lot to accomplish in 2000 years.

            The full evil of Lucifer’s system has to be made manifest. And don’t worry – those who believe the Bible expect Jesus to act. And when He does act, He is not going to be fooling around. He is coming with vengeance, clothed with a vesture dipped in blood. And when He dispenses that righteous justice the world is at an end. When that happens – do try to tell Him how He’s doing nothing – if you are able to open your mouth after soiling yourself.

  • Reesr January 20, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Secession is a very valid option at this point. All the talk of a midterm comeback and God forbid waiting four years to remove Biden is lunacy. The complete and utter corruption of the voting system in this country, not to mention the piss-ant enablers from county election administrators all the way up to our “supreme” court and congress should tell any one with eyes to see that the gig is up. Our constitutional republic has fallen to what our founders feared more than any standing army. It has fallen to our own human greed, sloth and insatiable desire for power. It is truly time to take stock of local affairs on a county and state level. If you live in a overtly liberal area with no chance of bringing it around, you owe it to your family to find somewhere else for them to be. Somewhere where they can live a Life free from government tyranny. If you were already blessed to live in a conservative, God-fearing and lawful area, then it is your duty to get involved with others in it to strengthen It and prepare to protect it from federal unconstitutional dictates. The thought of a “Divided States of America” is heart wrenching to most, but the thought of extinguishing the flame of liberty started in this country over 240 years ago, is utterly unacceptable. I Would much rather see A smaller country where that flame of liberty is respected and kindled than to see it die an ugly death at the hands of despots in 1500 dollar suits.

    This has been the plan it seems. Dealing with smaller segments and encouraging infighting is how England eventually conquered Scotland. No one listened when they were warned Trump was an infiltrator and deceiver, he probably still has a role to play in the further destruction of the country as he has an enormous sycophantic base which is easily duped. There’s no hope for a person naive enough to believe an outsider could gain access to the Oval Office 50+ years after JFK. Remember the frog/scorpion parable Trump repeated in the ’16 campaign? He was speaking about himself and how people in desperation will grab hold of anything if they think it will help them. US gov’t has always been the people’s enemy since Reconstruction, at least.

    Where is the Mental Screening of those who make “Red Flag Calls” on other People?
    “your” politicians make life & death decisions everyday. Decisions that affect Your economic, medical, mental, and physical health and safety. They decide the fates of MILLIONS of People. Where is THEIR “screening”? Those “elected” officials, those corrupt, narcissistic, sociopaths, let’s face it, a politician wants to tell others what they can and can’t do, what does that make a “career” politician………..
    THEY are armed with nukes, poison gasses, chemical weapons, every imaginable fiendish murder tool imaginable, and they are afraid of YOU with small arms.
    W-rong Bush hired the former head of the East German STASI, Marcus Wolf, and Yevgeny Primakov, former head of the KGB, to design Homeland Security ( both Jews, Followed by more “dual”citizen creeps.). Why? To bring oppression and the STASI SNITCH SYSTEM here…………….. and here it IS.
    Where are the RED FLAG laws on Politicians? DEMAND they do the exact same thing-PLUS.
    Politicians, Police, Judges, Government Workers make Life & Death deadly decisions every day.
    WE should be able to make ONE call and have them suspended from office and blocked from making any decisions until they are cleared for duty.
    Red Flags on priests! Why did it take DECADES for the politicians to do ANYTHING about those THOUSANDS of pedophiles??!
    There must be “reporting centers” so priests and politicians(Gov. Employees) can be immediately suspended pending investigation.
    Public Servants are also expected to be held to Higher Standards due to their positions and maintaining the Public Trust.
    How come there is never a “War on Political Corruption”? Never investigation of how these “Sacrificing Public SERVANTS” get so RICH in office? Audit THEIR finances.
    Therefore when they come out with such demands of their EMPLOYERS, their EMPLOYERS have the Right and Duty to make the same demand of THEM.
    WE demand THEY provide ALL their social media and computer searches, their e-mail accounts, Bank accounts and financial records for examination. Also Mental Screening, physical records, testing for steroids and illicit drugs. They must also wear GPS trackers so we can evaluate where they are spending their time. Screening for pedophilia and any other sickness.
    If it is good enough for US it is certainly good enough for Our EMPLOYEES.
    Politicians need to be screened for drugs for treating dementia and prozac/SSRI type drugs and other drugs that would indicate mental deficiencies. It should be law that ANY politician taking those drugs disclose the use to the public.
    Confiscate THEIR nuclear bombs, agent orange, white phosphorus, tanks, bombers,

    The Communists will be coming for your guns, money, food, children, freedom and ultimately for your life…these will be the mechanisms of the coming Communist purges and White Christian genocide.

  • Blagostwin January 21, 2021 at 7:13 am

    It wasn’t very long ago when it was the left that was threatening secession. That is before Biden got appointed to the Oval office. Oh how things have changed.

    • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 2:19 pm

      The difference between the leftists and conservatives in terms of secession is that conservatives are actually capable of following through and making it happen.

  • Aleister Crowley January 21, 2021 at 7:24 am

    You said in the text, “Demonize conservatives as much as possible as quickly as possible.. the establishment and leftists can blame us for everything going wrong. .. We become the monsters, the bogeymen and the source of all American suffering.”
    And yet, here we are, one day into the new administration (21Jan), and Antifa spent the first full night of said administration rioting, burning, and commiting their usual insanity. https://summit.news/2021/01/21/antifa-riots-follow-inauguration-we-dont-want-biden-we-want-revenge/
    Will the administration, et al, be able to concentrate on the conservative bogeyman to enable what you see coming, if they can’t control the monster they themselves unleashed on the country?

    • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 2:18 pm

      I predicted months ago that a Biden presidency will lead to even more riots by leftists. They will ignore the violence of Antifa and BLM and and try to attack any dissent by conservatives. That said, in almost every communist regime they eventually end up purging the very “true believers” that helped them get to power. It’s sad that the leftists are oblivious to how this all works.

      • Greg B. January 27, 2021 at 4:20 am

        This begs the question: why are the leftists still rioting even though Trump is no longer in office?

        • Brandon Smith January 27, 2021 at 5:29 am

          See my new article being posted later today. The far-left sees Biden as exploitable. The BLM and Antifa riots will be worse than ever.

    Our country is headed toward a break-up due to the corporate ownership of mainstream media
    and its incessant stream of left-wing propaganda and because of the vicious hatred that globalists and leftist politicians project onto conservatives. The succession of red states from the USA is becoming more and more likely due to the vilification and de-platforming of conservatives.

  • Cricket January 21, 2021 at 10:51 am

    Brandon, Mike Adams has just attributed this quote to you on his telegram account @RealHealthRanger:

    “There comes a point when it is impossible for those that value freedom, logic and reason to live side-by-side with those that are irrationally obsessed with control. The American constitutional framework in particular was designed to prevent collectivism from overriding individual liberties, but if the system is sabotaged through subversion and the Bill of Rights is violated, then maintaining the system is no longer plausible.”

  • Who Cares January 21, 2021 at 11:17 am

    Good stuff brandon. Similar to Tom Luongo’s latest analysis…The Trump age taught us a lot, but ultimately held us back from any real consequential change. Trump never had the power and/or ability to stand up to the swamp, but he brought them out in force for all to see what ridiculous control freaks they are.

    You read CJ over at Consent Factory Brandon?…hiding truth in satire. CJ has been on a roll lately. Highly recommend.

  • “Insane Left” January 21, 2021 at 11:29 am

    It’s interesting that y’all think the left would be so horrified and unwilling to support your secession… nothing would make me, a “leftist” in philosophy and geography, happier than finally letting the confederacy go – please continue to encourage relocation of populations and let’s do it. Amicably, if possible – such a ‘divorce’ need not be violent when both sides want away from the other.

    Let’s see which of the resulting nations would be able to operate, would have the tax revenue to grow, to take care of its citizens, and which would maintain the founders’ intentions of a separation of church and state. Please, go, enjoy your struggling theocracy, we’re all very impressed by your guns.

    • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 1:50 pm

      Oh, but it’s the behavior of your cultist communist ilk that leads us to believe the separation will NOT be peaceful. You see, the political left is overrun with zealots that constantly and openly call for the eradication or “re-education” of conservatives because we are supposedly all so “fascist” and “racist”. Yet, there are millions of black and brown people that are also conservative, and the political left is the ONLY side that has been consistently using violence against innocents and mass censorship to get what they want. If you are fine with our secession, then you are part of a tiny minority of lefties that actually see the wisdom in it. The rest of you are incapable of grasping the necessity, just as you are incapable of realizing that the blue states are already on the verge of economic collapse due to your failed socialist policies. California, for example, was BEGGING Trump for 14 billion in federal funds over the last summer. One year without being propped up by the Fed and leftist states would collapse. It’s sad that you guys actually believe you can survive a crisis event; I would almost feel bad for you if it weren’t for your astonishing arrogance.

      • Gauntlet33 January 21, 2021 at 3:28 pm

          • Gauntlet33 January 25, 2021 at 3:44 pm

            I agree. Extreme leftists and trolls are the pawns of the enemy and therefore ARE the enemy because they seek to undermine our moral high ground and rationale and to stay on THEIR narrative.

Suicide, murder, genocide, infanticide, and euthanasia would hack your numbers real quick. Then, once you’ve killed yourselves off, we conservatives can move back in and make a claim on your formerly socialist state.

We are the farmers, the engineers, the mechanics, the plumbers, the oil drillers etc etc. leftists are the perpetual college students with 3 degrees in feminist dance theory. leftists serve overpriced coffee, but cant grow it. leftists work at google and can code, but cannot produce electricity nor keep the grid running. leftists cannot operate water or sewer systems. leftists cant keep their car running – or the trains in urban area – much less build them. The examples are endless. leftists as a group are parasites.

  • Cricket January 21, 2021 at 11:34 am

    Just what do we mean by succession? It can take many different forms. For example, what if, say, 20 or more states banded together and said “We are instructing our citizens and businesses to no longer participate in the Federal Tax system and we are recalling our representatives from Washington?” This would be a devastating blow to DC and the dollar, without complete, geographical succession. It would send world markets into a complete meltdown.

    A justification for such a succession would be the stolen, invalid election we just witnessed, and the Supreme Court’s unwillingness to hear it.

    • Capt pops January 21, 2021 at 12:35 pm

      • Choctaw Charley January 22, 2021 at 6:07 am

        Allow me to go a little off topic here. I emailed Lin Wood with this proposal in order to present the facts behind the Election fraud: Do a “Scopes Trial”. Find a constitutionalist retired Federal judge. Invite the Biden bunch (or this failing, commie university law professors) to send in their clowns and hold a trial under federal legal and constitutional standards. The right to broadcast it live (under specified standards) could be auctioned off. Film it live and sell DVD’s etc., as well as books. Not only would the effort turn a handsome profit but the facts could be presented to this nation on a flood lit center stage. After expenses, the profits could be endowed to support Constitutionalist law schools in this nation.

        • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 2:20 pm

          Except that no government official or judge would go along with that plan. It would never happen.

    • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 2:09 pm

    • JustOneGuy January 21, 2021 at 10:30 pm

      Finally, someone who shines in the actual singular detail that is salient! Gods above, what a delightful breath of fresh air…my thanks, sincerely. Were the Cetral States to secede – either individually or en masse – then it’s GAME OVER for our ‘Benevolent Masters of the Universe, aka, GloboCorp’.
      Consider the geographic situation here involved; the ‘Fly-over States’ whom our Coastal Brethen refer to our region as, actually PRODUCE 90% of all grain, livestock, Petroleum (along with having the Lion’s share of the refining capacity thereof) and etc.
      Exactly ‘WHAT’ do the Coast(s) produce other than unbalanced People, Budgets, Politicians, Bankers, Lawyers, ANTIFA…ad nauseum, ad infinitum? Additionally, take into account the distribution of the meaningful Military bases across the country: Ft Hood…the overwhelming bulk of US Armor capability; Texas: Ft Leonard Wood…the centration of the US Chemical Corps; Missouri: Whiteman AFB…the home of the B2; also Missouri: Minot AFB…the bulk of US land-based ICBM capability: Ft Knox…the remaining Armored capability of the US…and the list goes on…and ON.
      As always, Brandon’s analysis is – in my humble opinion – virtually “Immaculate”; I seldom miss reading any new piece that appears here. I’m always amazed that one of so few years so clearly perceives the fundamental salients involved. Saluud Sir!
      “If we cannot live WITH those who do not espouse our basic codes of conduct, then by ALL MEANS let us live WITHOUT them.” If the Central States elect to enact Articles of Seccession as Brandon suggest then I give the Coasts less than a year until full, complete collapse. The Federal Governance would very quickly indeed discover the impossibility of ruling over a sovereign Nation split into two halves. Furthermore, Alaska (I am an Alaskan citizen) would certainly follow suit in divorcing itself from the lower 48…with whom most of our State’s citizens have very little in common with other than a profound desire to be LEFT ALONE and who also – coincidentally – tend to Loathe formal authority to an extent that can scarce be described as other than a matter which is congenital, who also have a rabid dislike for the Federal Edifice in particular due to it’s endless reapportionment of OUR vast lands into parcels controlled wholly by it. However, it is also the case that both British Columbia and Alberta have previously indicated extreme displeasure with the central governance originating in Ottowa by quasi-regularly debating the merits of secceding from Canada as well.
      Perhaps all that our Northern friends need to help them to get the ball rolling in thier vicinity would be to see thier Southern Brothers showing them how it’s done? In that event conceivably you might – might! – end up with a contiguous Nation forming from all of us and those stretching from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Brownsville, Texas to Nashville, Tennesesee. Now wouldn’t that just get Uncle Joe’s and Diddle-Doo Justin’s panties in a bunch!
      I’ve thought for some time that what Brandon lays out concerning the UN is exactly what will happen irregardless of what else might transpire; THAT is exactly what China so desperately wants and NEEDS…and invitation to get ‘boots on the ground’ in the “Breadbasket of the World” is absolutely irresistible to them…and possibly given all the incredible shenanigans we’ve been seeing of late, possibly constructed by them by design. Think about it…how else are they going to FEED all thier hungry mouths given the various disasters this past year there as well as the ecological Catastrophe they have created in poisoning their own country to the incredible extent which they have? The utter Nightmare which everyone of the members of the Chinese Central Committee wakes up from – nightly! – is of 1.2 BILLION more than slightly STARVING and INFURIATED Chinese citizens coming after THEM.
      Keep it coming Brandon!

Would we be more likely to fly under radar if it turned into a email group instead of a website group? Of course there would have to be some strenuous vetting on your part – maybe only allowing those who are already visiting your website and you know us by our fruit (what we write in comments) to be part. Pretty sure they had the same problem in the underground groups in WW2. And of course, occasionally the mole did damage.

    Personally, I believed from day one that Trump was a Trojan horse. He did nothing to advance individual liberty, not a single thing. Debt went parabolic on his watch despite what he promised in 2015. His cabinet was loaded with Straussian neocons which belied his intention to ‘drain the swamp’. He is and always been a con man and anyone who believed he’d do anything other than in his self interest is delusional.

    • JonJon January 21, 2021 at 3:40 pm

      I’ve felt the same way about Trump since day one. It seems that everything that happens in politics is nothing but psychological warfare against the people. Even Jesse Ventura has spoken out on how the whole political system is nothing but a big scam.

  • Major Skeptic January 21, 2021 at 1:05 pm

    Catherine Austin Fitts believes TPTB want states to succeed so that the Feds are no longer obligated to pay social security, medicare, etc. This may not be a bad thing for the younger folks, but the older folks are going to have a problem with it.
    Also, these alleged “Covid Vaccines” seem to be designed to modify our genetics. Moderna refers to theirs as an “operating system” for the body. Could this be how they intend to get “the masses”, especially military, to follow their directives? Not so far-fetched. The “vaccine” may be required for the military.

    • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 1:40 pm

    Brandon is on point as usual. I highly encourage people to do their research ASAP as to which states to move to. FYI, I did my own research and I chose South Carolina, based on its Repulican-Conservative and Christian values, comparatively reasonably low property prices, easy access to well and rain water, and decent climate. Also, since mid 2020, I’ve seen tons of properties in the southeast get bought up and prices escalate. And I’m sure the same in happening right now in all rural parts where city-dwellers such as myself are moving to. In other words, if you’re looking to go rural from a big city, and have the means to buy a place, now and yesterday was the time to buy.
    @stuxnet, yes, I believe that’s why they came out with the show “Designated Survivor” because they contemplate and are “predictively programming” that there will be an attack on D.C.

      • Gauntlet33 January 21, 2021 at 4:52 pm

        Actually, one hour inland from Myrtle Beach. I forgot to mention that SC does not currently have any law requiring vaccination in case of a declared emergency outbreak:

        SECTION 44-4-520. Vaccinations and treatment.

        (B) Vaccinations or treatment, or both, must be provided only to those individuals who agree to the vaccinations or treatment, or both.

        (C)(2) To be administered pursuant to this section, a vaccine must not be such as is reasonably likely to lead to serious harm to the affected individual.

        (D)(2) Treatment must not be such as is reasonably likely to lead to serious harm to the affected individual.

        https://www.scstatehouse.gov/code/t44c004.php

        Whereas I noticed that other states…CA, FL, etc. do have laws already in place where a vaccine may legally (damn your natural rights) be forced on you.
        ..
        Florida law mandating vaccinations:
        4. Ordering an individual to be examined, tested, vaccinated, treated, isolated, or quarantined for communicable diseases that have significant morbidity or mortality and present a severe danger to public health. Individuals who are unable or unwilling to be examined, tested, vaccinated, or treated for reasons of health, religion, or conscience may be subjected to isolation or quarantine…
        If there is no practical method to isolate or quarantine the individual, the State Health Officer may use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual.
        https://www.flsenate.gov/Laws/Statutes/2017/381.00315

        I’ve heard of many Californians moving to TN, TX, FL, but did they consider the above? I’m guessing that they were looking for Republican states, warm weather, and decent economies, but the forced vaccine issue shouldn’t be forgotten.

    For me, I can’t move from the desert in California.

    At 75 years old, I’ve spent decades getting this farm together, all with my own hands, and social security is my only income. But I wouldn’t mind knowing what you all are doing on that side of the divide…a little camaraderie; because there certainly isn’t any here with these crazy people. Not even a MAG here.

    In my neighborhood blog people are really talking up a serious anti-gun rhetoric and it felt like I should move on from conversing on there. They are absolutely convinced that the Capitol thing was a dangerous white supremacist movement. I live far enough out here, no neighbors….have to take my chances.

    I’ve gone thru a lot of Prepper groups (and so far all I’ve seen is that they are like little children trying to play grown up – and most parrot each other and don’t seem to have a real clue), a lot of groups like yours, talking more about the political climate we are in right now, yours is the only one I’ve stuck with. Great minds think alike (grins).

    Other question. Is CWD a big problem where you are? I see a lot of Preppers totally planning their whole survival plan around hunting….so wondered; as I know Montana and Wyoming did have a big problem with CWD.

    As I said, I know you are a big stickler for staying on topic – so it’s not necessary you let this post……just wanted to reach out and mention these things, maybe mull them over, write on them later.

      I’m actually looking into secure chat rooms for discussions. That type of stuff is beyond my web knowledge right now so there is a learning curve. I’m also juggling a lot of different projects right now that I have yet to announce. Also, we don’t have a big problem with CWD out where I live. At least, I’ve never encountered a deer with it. I think preppers need to treat hunting like a supplementary food source. When the SHTF, a lot of people are going to try to hunt and the animals are going to move into hard to get to areas. Only the best hunters will have any success at that point. Better to grow food, raise your own animals and keep food storage.

        I live in Europe, but I like to have a holistic planetary vision and that is why I follow this blog, because it provides me with reliable and quality information about the US.
        As is known, in Europe, people do not have weapons like in the US and this is a disadvantage for Europe.
        The American people have weapons, on the other hand America has been the locomotive of global geostrategy in the last decades, and for this reason it has a moral duty to be the nucleus of change for the whole world, it also has weapons, it is an advantage.

          Historically every attempt at ‘Globalism’ has failed, and this one will too. Globalists always think that globalism is predestined, and they are always wrong. That is why they are, by any historical measure, stupid, dull and evil individuals with blood-soaked hands.

  • stevennonemaker88 January 21, 2021 at 5:49 pm

    Great articles, Brandon. I would like to mention that the globalists will have no intention of allowing even one state to leave; they want the whole country (and the world). However, there is an alternative school of thought that some factions within the globalist camp actually want to have a civil war/ succession as it gives them the perfect excuse to replace the current dead system with something new… and worse. Secondly, I think that you are being very optimistic when you say “Of course, conservatives are not going to simply sit still and be purged and abused, they are going to strike back”. The reality is that although we are extremely fed up with the system, and some of us have been preparing, I have seen precious little that could really be termed “striking back” and lots of us have been sitting still and being abused. I fully agree that we need to strike back, and take real action. But I think many of us still have too much to lose to go on the offensive. Finally, I live in Guatemala, and during the civil war here hundreds of thousands of civilians including women and children where tortured, raped, and/ or murdered. The military vs the peasants is an extremely ugly affair, and I would recommend studying the civil war in El Salvador, Guatemala, and the Russian civil war for examples of when insurgency failed, so we can plan accordingly.

    • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 6:25 pm

      I’m sure they’ll try to stop us from breaking away, but that doesn’t mean they will be able to. Also, I’m familiar with many failed insurgencies in history, and usually they are communist in origin. The problem is that communists often attract untrained people with no combat background, they are bottom of the barrel insurgencies. Another problem is that many insurgencies do not target the root of the problem, the people actually running things, or their errand boys. Instead they try to terrorize the population into helping them, and they target only low level soldiers. A hypothetical American insurgency would have to be built on the moral high ground, protect the citizenry and it would have to strike fear in the elites behind the curtain.

  • Martin H January 21, 2021 at 7:27 pm

    Once the ideology of communism or socialism infects a population it is very difficult to extract. It is especially difficult when it overtakes our institutions. Historically the removal of such insurgencies has been increadibly bloody and often requires martial law or totalitarian strategies (PKI in Indonesia, MCP in Malaysia, Korean and Vietnam wars). It is three dimensional warfare these days and seccession won’t be easy and it won’t be standing armies in uniform. The threat of the United States to globalism is its strength in unity. I am not sure secession is not playing into the hands of globalism. They want us fighting each other and not them.

    • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 8:10 pm

      Sorry, but you are not looking at the bigger picture. We are ALREADY separated. There is NO unity in this country in terms of leftists and conservative and there never will be. Our existences are mutually exclusive; we cannot share the same space. They are too irrational and vicious to coexist with. Also, the leftists are not an “insurgency”, they are the occupying force. They have all the support from corporate and government institutions. WE are the insurgency now, and it’s time people get used to that reality. As we stand now, the US is controlled and not a threat to the globalists in the slightest. By breaking free, conservatives change the dynamic and actually become a threat for the first time in centuries. They do indeed want us fighting each other, but that’s unavoidable now, and they think they can control both sides by co-opting the liberty movement through Trump and other RINOS. Secession helps to disrupt co-option as well. Beyond that, the communist left needs to be countered along with the globalists. There is no rule that says we are only allowed to focus on one or the other; we can deal with both.

      The only other option beyond separation or secession is for conservatives to sit quietly hiding in their houses hoping and praying they don’t get that knock on the door in the middle of the night and find jackboots waiting to take their guns, take their kids or take them to prison. A dramatic change in how we view this conflict and how we react to threats is required, everything else is naivety.

  • john Patrick January 21, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    There are tactical advantages to the status quo. having core red states AND being dispersed in large numbers throughout the blue states. If you want to fight the power, you need to attack their money sources (and by proxy their support network) in a way that maintains and increases public support. Strength is attractive, weakness is not. They have media, what they don’t have is credibility. That is an exploitable weakness. Their majority is contingent on the “middle of the road” democrats, not the “woke” crowd (who will die quickly of drugs or some other self inflicted harm soon anyway) . That is a huge weakness. They are racists. They measure everything by race. That is an illusion they create and exploit. its also a huge weakness.
    Sooo, the trick is to remain peaceful yet effective, gain support and respect. Shutting down Ama-son fast and hard (without weapons or casualties) cannot go overlooked and will provoke (a disproportionate) response or expose a major weakness. If anyone thinks the globalists can find a teaspoon full of clear liquid in syria or yemen, yet are completely incapable of stopping truckloads of heroin travelling across our country every day with impunity… i don’t know what to say. Anyone could use any method they wanted – hypothetically – to shut that trade down and would get respect and support. conservative estimate that is $40 billion a year. (and probably a ton of weapons) Ain’t no one going to convince me none of that money ends up in washington. (and every local democratic office between the streets and the capital. look at how the cartel operates in mexico. Disrupt that money flow by any means neccessary. Anyway, how to go about that is for someone smarter than me. I’m just thinking out loud here (while i can)
    Republicans, libertarians, and DT supporters can have a minute to cry and get their bearings….its well deserved. What we can’t do is wallow in doom and gloom. We have huge resources and huge public support. HUGE. People may say that civil war or some doomsday scenario are inevitable and i assure you that will be a self-fullfilling prophesy. The Bible stories, the Quran, the Bagvadghita – all these books are written, collected, and preserved by people in the past who faced incredible difficulties or saw others face them – they are messages to the future generations on how to deal with it, how to overcome it. A roadmap and a guide. Historically speaking what we are facing isn’t sh-t. We can’t cry about it. We need to face it and conquer it or we will fade into history. That is how it is and how its always been. Life is a struggle.

    • Brandon Smith January 21, 2021 at 8:36 pm

      We are FAR beyond working within the system or using passive resistance. That might have been an option 30 years ago, but not now. Even Ghandi said he did not know if his methods would have worked against someone like Hitler. The people you are resisting have to have a conscience, or they at least have to pretend they do for their constituency. That is not the type of enemy we are facing today. If direct action is not taken, the elites WILL institute medical tyranny in this country, along with an economic collapse and a one world system. It’s not about doom and gloom, it’s about reality, and there are still many people in the liberty movement that are either too frightened or too naive to accept the fight that is in front of us. Now is the time when we find out who actually has balls and who is all talk and no action.

      • john Patrick January 22, 2021 at 11:17 pm

        I don’t think we are far beyond at all. the problem with succession is what changes? is there a new constitution? what prevents history from repeating itself? There are problems the current administration may know of that the general public doesn’t. The crashing of the dollar many experts say is eminent – however no one is telling us when that will happen. i have to think people know or think they know.
        There are no perfect government systems.
        Our government went completely off the rails with campaign reform in 2010. SCOTUS allowed unlimited donations from corporations and unions etc. Thats just one law to overturn. Congressional Term limits are supported by something like 70% of the country. Just these two things would dramatically change our political landscape. If you wanna get really serious there has to be a way of limiting foreign interference… Our entire foreign policy is based upon one country. There are many significant benefits to investing on our own continent… security and prosperity.
        So yeah… i don’t see a picture of what is better. when someone comes up with something specific, that is the time to do the cost-benefit analysis of succession vs repair. We just aren’t close to that point yet. What the current administration is about to show is is how disconnected and disorganized the conservative and libertarian side of the country is. We have a long way to go – a lot of people united behind DTrump, that isn’t the same as being united.
        We are all looking at a couple potentially very rough years. As individuals and individual groups find ways to survive the upcoming onslaught new ideas and new leaders and new possibilities will arise.

        Your articles do a very good job identifying the problem and for real this is one of the few serious sites on the internet that i’m aware of.

        The founders had a specific list of grievances (which someone should piece together if they are even remotely serious about succession). They were serious collective grievances. Until you get a significant majority behind that, your just spinning wheels. What would be the new constitution and how would it prevent our current problems? that is the second step.

        • Brandon Smith January 23, 2021 at 1:05 am

          And this is why conservatives almost never accomplish anything, because they try to assert that, before rebelling, we need to reinvent the entire wheel. So, we end up caught in the weeds debating endlessly how our rebellion against tyranny is going to end instead of actually taking steps for it to begin. The founding fathers did not have a design for the government they were going to institute before the Declaration of Independence was written. This did not stop them from doing what needed to be done and casting off British control. The liberty movement has been collecting and voicing grievances for DECADES, we even supposedly had a president in office that was going to act on those grievances. Nothing happened. Let me make this clear: The time for trying to change the system from within is OVER. DONE. GONE. In fact, the system has been completely and utterly corrupted for DECADES, not just since 2010. I can tell you first-hand when we were pushing for the Ron Paul campaign that things were completely rigged in 2007-2008. Please stop fantasizing about some kind of political or legal solution, because it is never coming. Now is the time to take drastic action (like secession) or be enslaved – Those are your two choices.

    • Davilyn January 22, 2021 at 8:59 am

      John…what you say is True. But there is a caveat that 99.9% do not understand. It is something I’ve tried to explain to people for decades. A person cannot think that if only someone they support gets into office; all will be well. The people who govern are a reflection of “mass consciousness”. Until the individual consciousness changes, nothing else will change.

      So you and Brandon are both right. The consciousness has not changed to a Higher one. In fact, it has fallen to a level of Sodom. So the governments will reflect that. So the only option for people who are not only not willing to accept their True Divinity (religions are manmade, so they don’t count) but are willingly spitting on it, knowingly spitting on it, will have to resort to physical means, i.e. violence.

      On the other hand, those who Understand their True Divinity Need to engage in that. But it is no longer a time to teach, it is a time to Be Still, and sink into the woodwork…..Be the Beacon of Light…its an energy thing I think you probably Understand.

      So while Brandon and the others do their work; we must also do ours. One Works with the other. Without the Beacon…..it will always be violence that temporarily tries to solve a problem but in reality is only alleviating symptoms (like a earthquake temporarily relieves pressure on the fault), not the problem.

      • Cricket January 25, 2021 at 3:36 am

        “In fact, it has fallen to a level of Sodom.”
        This is the core problem. China must be looking at the United States and saying “Been there, done that.”
        The USA today exhibits extreme decadence by historical norms (aka Camille Paglia writings), a devastating opioid/fentanyl epidemic, and is building a wall to keep away the barbarian hoards. Sound familiar? It’s like 700 years of Chinese history compressed into a few decades.

    Brandon, I emailed you 7/03/20, on the same topic of SECESSION (not SUCCESSION, as some here can’t spell or distinguish between the two), when I encouraged you to start the narrative. Thank you for doing so, in this article. I am with you 100%, and if Montana is first to secede, I will immediately move there. Please remember that it is the 10th Amendment which gives States the right to secede, and it has to be all or nothing, which means a total separation from the union. You are right that we are a totally divided people, and will never be united with Communists. Secession is not prohibited by the Constitution, therefore, it is reserved to the States, respectively, meaning, individually. Let’s get on with it.

    • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 2:05 pm

      I’ve been writing about secession for 15 years, but only now are enough conservatives actually taking the issue seriously.

      • californiawoman January 22, 2021 at 4:02 pm

        Terribly practical question: There will be plenty of advantages to live in a seceded State except for the fact that there may be no Social Security payments from the government ? Maybe by that point the checks will be worthless anyway due to hyperinflation.

        • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 4:17 pm

          Yes, expect that the federal government will cut off all forms of stimulus from red states. But, also expect that stimulus to collapse the US dollar anyway. In the long run, the red states and counties that break away will be better off.

          • Kapper January 23, 2021 at 3:19 pm

            This has been my worry as well. The red state baby boomers will NEVER support secession unless you have promises up front that their Social Security and Medicare benefits will be maintained at near 100% levels.

            It’s a great example of how big government handouts lead to dependency and obedience. (Even if much of those benefits were paid into.)

          • Brandon Smith January 23, 2021 at 6:50 pm

            They will, once they realize that the handouts are being taken away anyway through hyperinflation. I’ve heard this nonsense before about Boomers and there’s really no evidence to back it. Every Boomer I know is ready to fight; they could care less about losing social security because they know it’s almost bankrupt.

        • Cricket January 27, 2021 at 3:49 am

          Social security payments could be overcome, with some clever financial manoeuvres.
          The nuclear option is to cut off the Red States from the Swift system. They would no longer be able to trade or invest nationally or internationally. Instant financial destruction.

    Hey Brandon, I think your work is awesome and I look forward to reading what you have to say each week. It seems to me that resisting the globalist Reset by refusing the vaccine is a place to start but is not all that difficult. However, I think that it will be much more difficult for people to resist the tyranny when the dollar collapses and they try to institute their digital cashless society. I was wondering if you might write a future article on how you think people can prepare for this. What do you think the globalists will do with dollar denominated debt and with the people who are in debt. What can people do now to minimize the impact on their lives for what is inevitably coming .

    • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 2:02 pm

      That’s actually the main problem I have been wring about since I began in 2006. The solution is the localization of economies, growing more production at the local level as well as building barter markets. This all starts with small groups preparing for collapse and trading with each other.

  • Shelby Moore III January 22, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    Brandon, I agreed up to the point wherein you think the conservative states can resist.

    Are you factoring in that economies do not function without a banking system and a currency? The evil side controls all the banks throughout the country via the Federal Reserve and the Treasury department.

    Additional the WEF is threatening cyber attacks to take down the power grid, food processing/distribution and destroy computer systems with zero day exploits. Also most of the government officials in all states are compromised with kompromat and bribes.

    I don’t think conservatives are prepared to shoot all their government officials in the conservative states.

    This will come to a head maybe by 2022 with extreme violence, because afaics unfortunately only a militant solution will be viable. Conservatives of course will seek the political solution for too long and be decimated by that myopia, normalcy bias and complacency.

    • Shelby Moore III January 22, 2021 at 12:12 pm

      China is clearly bribing and employing kompromat to drive all investment from the West to China:

      https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/taxes/no-taxation-without-reform/

      “In your opinion, how serious is the idea of taxing unrealized capital gains? That would sure make the decision a lot clearer for big money on where to park. 3% in China sure beats big taxes in the Dow. Unless big money doesn’t trust China.”

    • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 1:52 pm

      It’s not about the states, it’s about the PEOPLE in the states. If a movement starts to separate, then the states will separate, whether the politicians agree to it or not. You are thinking backward, from the top down rather than the ground up. You mistake secession as a political solution; it is not. Secession is preparation for the war that is coming. Also, no, we do not need the banks. States can institute their own banks (like North Dakota has done) and conservatives can introduce their own payment systems and barter systems at the local level. Finally, no, the WEF has not threatened “cyber attacks” because they don’t need cyber attacks to bring down the economy. Also, it is a fairytale that the electrical grid is vulnerable to cyber attacks. It is vulnerable to physical attack, but most liberty people are already well prepared with power alternatives.

I mean in a sense everything but the NWO digital currency could be made worthless if they wanted to do that so where do we go???

    • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 1:45 pm

      Well, that would take them years to accomplish (the end date for the Reset is 2030), and that’s if they are successful (which they won’t be). In the meantime I think most people with sense will be putting money into tangibles, and gold and silver are going to skyrocket in value due to hyperinflation so that would be a good place too. People will have to start thinking in terms of commodities, necessities and barter.

    As for leftists accusing secession movements consorting with foreign powers I have to ask, why are the Left so obsessed with Russia of all places?

    • Brandon Smith January 22, 2021 at 6:08 pm

      Maybe the elites have plans for US/Russia tensions down the road and they are trying to associate conservatives with Russia in the minds of leftists in preparation for that. If there is a larger regional conflict in Syria, that could put us in direct contact with Russian forces; or, there could be an economic war between East and West. Either way, they are trying REAL HARD to get people to think “Russia” every time conservatives are involved in something.

      • Herbert January 22, 2021 at 8:15 pm

        Hello Brandon,

        I’ve been reading your website for about 2 years, and what I’ve come to understand from your readings, history lessons, and the current happenings is that no matter how tough some ‘elitists’ are, it always comes down to the ground level and momentum of a trend.

        Definitely things are going down towards a civil war, and it’s almost surreal to see how few people realize it. I also feel sorry for some people I know who are still in big cities. A university I’ve used to attend had fired 80% of its staff because of the house arrest measures, that’s about 10k people sacked in just one institution. Those jobs ain’t coming back since when there will be a 180 degree flop on the pre-martial law, pretty much everyone who used to serve on campus, restaurants etc., will have no means to return.

        Also, a friend of mine who opened a business in another blue state is having little to no success because the curfew is disabling proper operations, just like in the example above. My intuition was telling me to be cautious of states that are run my demorats, but I wasn’t expecting it will envelope so quickly.

        Very sad to see people that sincerely want to work but are effectively sacked by the state not having any support from their fellows, it was heartbreaking to see the lady in Los Angeles whose restaurant was closed, whereas a filming crew was dining right besides her place. A slap in the face to hard working Americans, and a betrayal by cowards and fools who don’t realize this situation will backfire to the whole nation, no matter how much numbers in your bank account there are.

        Best wishes and stay safe,
        Herbert

    The #1 why we must break up:

      I don’t see this happening in most of those sparsely populated western states.
      Where will they live without a massive housing boom? Local and county governments could just refuse or severely restrict their zoning laws and residential construction projects.

      (I think Lewiston, Maine did this after being swamped with Somali refugees some years ago.)

    Interesting post and comments. Here is my contribution.

    Texas has it’s own electric grid and seems to be vulnerable to a well placed EMP attack. That would tilt the playing field dramatically.

    • Brandon Smith January 23, 2021 at 6:57 pm

      They don’t really need an EMP to take out the electrical grid they only need to physically take down 9 of the 30 necessary HV transformers across the country; far less in Texas. That said, most liberty people are already prepped for that eventuality. Also, any community near hydroelectric or solar would be fine as well.

    Brandon, I appreciate your post. Very spot on. However, you may be too young to remember what I do as one who is almost a sexagenarian. While I agree with your conclusions you’ve left out the far right. They are as much to blame for the mess we are in as is the far left. DJT seemed to be a moderate. However, his actions over the course of his Presidency as well as those of his administration have set up the scenario we now find ourselves facing. Biden is only the implementer. All the ground work was laid by Trump. Further still, is the fact that this plan dates back to JFK. What were going to be experiencing is a deliberate reaction to the action taken decades ago to bring us to this point. The whole intent is to break up the United States, not to prohibit such. Either way, all of this is inevitable. It sickens me to hear of friendlies proposing for us to put our hopes on regaining positions of power in 2022 or even 2024. It’s over. I agree. The fat lady is singing. All that remains is for those of us who’ve prepared for what’s coming is to congregate quietly, effectively, and promptly. Not to save this Republic; it is finished. But to protect our own welfare. I like to refer people to the 1980’s ABC miniseries, AMERIKA. That was the game plan revealed over 30 years ago, with a few subtle differences, it is being followed down to the last jot and tittle.

    • Brandon Smith January 23, 2021 at 10:30 pm

      Donald Trump is not “far right” or conservative. You are mistaking GOP yes-men and globalist puppets as conservatives. They are not the same thing. The political right’s only crime is not stepping in sooner to stop the criminality that has overtaken the country. This is why we are the target of demonization campaigns; because we are the true threat.

    Something from the article above, which I never see – ‘the teams’, as it were – the layout of, red vs. blue, on a state level, with no mention of the red counties in those blue states, though,… wishing good fortune to you guys:

    Red (27 states): Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

    Blue (23 states, plus DC): California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin.

    …Let, ‘The Games’, begin?

    • Cricket January 25, 2021 at 2:46 am

      Inspecting the county by county voting results of Red vs Blue states reveals that large regions of many so-called “Blue” states are actually Red. Mostly it’s a few large, failing but still populous metro areas that are the remaining Blue strongholds; not the rural areas. I’m thinking San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia and so on. I don’t think that the converse is true.
      Taking a note from history, if secession or civil strife were to occur, some these so-called ‘Blue’ states could end up like Kansas and Missouri during the last Civil War.

      • Cricket January 25, 2021 at 2:49 am

        Or Virginia, that split into two states at the outset of the last Civil War.

  • GHah January 25, 2021 at 1:12 am

    Do not underestimate what is going on in real estate… Bill Gates is now the biggest owner of farm land with may thousands of acres also in red states. My feeling is this is not (only) about farming but also having a footprint in red states. Also, China is investing in real estate often with straw men (companies). Who in the red states is watching over this and blocking lucrative offers from bad players? Also, Fitts has also examined that the real estate damaged through the leftist riots is up for cheap grabs… she kinda insinuated that Bezos is liking to buy up lots of property on the back of the riots. These also took place in some red states. For me it seems that „they“ are trying to infiltrate red states through huge acquisitions of land. Who is checking who is behind the buyers… often times not openly obvious where the money is coming from.

    • Brandon Smith January 25, 2021 at 5:00 pm

      People who have never lived on large acreage tend to overestimate the size of elitist lands because they don’t actually understand what an acre is. Bill Gates only owns 242,000 acres of farmland, which only comes out to 378 square miles spread out all over the country. It’s a TINY drop in the bucket in terms of total farmland in the US. China can buy whatever they want in the US, but how are they going to keep it? It can be taken back anytime. Same with Gates – what’s he going to do about it if we simply take the land back? Also, there was almost NO damage from leftists in red states that could be used as a crux to buy land cheap.

    Brandon, have you ever considered joining “TheGreaterReset”? I’m sure you would great speaker and/or activist. thegreaterreset.org

    Also, I’m curious about getting electricity off the grid. Solar is not really an option in South Carolina because it’s always overcast, so I’m wondering if there are other ideas out there for sustainable power. Thanks in advance.

    Newsom rescinded lockdowns in all of california today .

    Is this why? Silicon Valley donors unhappy.

    What a cluster….

    • Brandon Smith January 25, 2021 at 7:44 pm

      No, this is the strategy they have been using for the past year: Lockdown for a couple months, then reopen for around six weeks – over and over again. The next lockdown will be a national federal lockdown ordered by Biden. They are already hinting that “covid mutations”” are spreading and that the vaccines don’t work on these new strains. I give it around two months before they try to lock everything down again, with harsher measures and punishments put in place. Newsom doesn’t care about losing business, he’s just following the Reset plan that has been given to him.

      • Gauntlet33 January 26, 2021 at 9:06 am

        Exactly. And it looks like they’re going with the narrative that infections are down because of the vaccine (at least for now). Then they’ll lock down harder again once people start dying en masse from the vaccines, but they’ll blame the deaths on the COVID “mutation / variant”, and most people will again believe their lies.

        Also, I received this email from Google…I wouldn’t doubt if it’s a false flag to then explain why everybody got ripped off from their PayPal, ebay, Amazon, and other online accounts.

    Hey Brandon I thought I would pass along this article to you as it sums up what you have said in some of your comments about how the Trump presidency mirrors the Hoover presidency. I hope that you find this a fascinating read cause I know that I did.

  • californiawoman January 27, 2021 at 8:24 am

    The only hope I have in California is that the Newsom recall campaign will be successful. Not sure if votes will be counted accurately, though. What are your thoughts, Brandon.

    • Gauntlet33 January 27, 2021 at 2:14 pm

      I have a strong suspicion that the Recall for Gov. Newsom is being used to know who to target…hope I’m wrong and just overly paranoid.

      • Brandon Smith January 27, 2021 at 4:37 pm

        If you are conservative, they already know who you are. We need to stop caring or worrying about trying to hide it; it doesn’t matter.

    Empty hospitals in Spain, and the media saying they are COLLAPSED, OVERFLOWED, by patients with COVID. Such a blatant lie.
    A woman records with her phone in a large hospital, and she shows that she is empty, also in the ICU. https://www.facebook.com/100022835571947/posts/899459207491923/?sfnsn=scwspwa

    I’ve commented before. Middle aged, alone, live in the Bronx, work in Manhattan.
    I take home about $500 a week, working 40 hours a week. I rent a room and take the train.
    Moving is doable, I suppose. Just need to find a job that’ll pay enough to rent a little house and buy groceries.
    The idea of getting stuck here, if people that refuse to take the vaccine are made to not cross state borders, is not an idea I like.
    Most people I work with believe that the vaccine will make everything return to normal. Most talk as if there’s no question that you are going to get it, soon as you can.
    Of course, there are millions of people here, and I have not talked to most of them, but the few I have believe NYC will bounce back. I don’t believe that.

    The Biden administration is considering implementing mandatory coronavirus testing for travelers on U.S. domestic flights.

    Dr. Marty Cetron, director for the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told reporters Tuesday that the administration is “actively looking” into imposing the domestic travel testing requirement.

    TEXAS: House Bill 1359, also known as the Texas Independence Referendum Act, which would allow the citizens of Texas to vote on whether the Texas Legislature should create a joint interim committee to develop a plan for achieving Texas independence.

    This is not a resolution to allow for immediate independence. This legislation will give power directly to the people via referendum and allow Texans the right to discuss, debate and vote on creating a path toward Texas Independence. Regardless of an individual Legislator’s personal opinion on Texas Independence, we ask all Representatives and Senators to Let Texans Vote!
