I thought America 2.0- the authoritarian mess which evolved out of the 9/11 false flag- was bad. It made those of us old enough to have lived most of our lives in America 1.0 long for the days of a better looking, more competent corruption. 2020, with a deadly virus that had the beneficial effects of eliminating both the threat of terrorism and the common flu, and an unconstitutional lockdown accompanying it, was only the beginning.
2021 is off to a roaring start. First, a laughably fraudulent election in Georgia, which gave the Senate to the Democrats, and featured overt evidence like the Republican Perdue losing 30,000 votes live on air. And now, the January 6 incident at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C., which featured a terrifying unarmed mob of White riff-raff, “storming” the representative body their taxes pay for, while politely keeping between the purple ropes, taking lots of selfies, and to untrained eyes appearing to be a pretty innocuous bunch. Well, except for that dangerous fellow who dared to prop up his working class boots on Lady Nancy Pelosi’s desk.
If you believe the mainstream media, there were only 45,000 people protesting the election results on January 6. If you believe the people there, and the photo evidence, there were at least hundreds of thousands, perhaps a million. Regardless of how many there were, they came there, from all across the country, because Donald Trump and his inner circle, intimated that something “big” was going to happen. The QAnon mindset was strong here; perhaps many in attendance thought they’d witness live perp walks of the Deep State criminals they’d been told repeatedly would be arrested and convicted by a military tribunal.
Instead, Trump issued a predictable pep talk, the kind he’s perfected at countless rallies. I don’t believe he should be held accountable for “inciting” people to do the wrong thing, but he did declare that he was going to be marching with them. Not sure how that would have worked, but instead he fled back to the White House. At the first inkling of criticism, Trump threw his supporters under the bus, and called their actions “heinous.” Then he told them to “go home in peace.” I thought of all the Catholic masses that end with almost those exact words. In effect, Trump was issuing a closing statement, on the MAGA movement he started and consistently disappointed.
In the wake of the event, every media outlet and politician in both parties condemned what they invariably called a “storming” of the Capitol, and referred to the protesters as “traitors,” “terrorists,” and the like. On social media, I raised comparisons like the six block takeover last summer of Seattle, by a self-proclaimed group of insurgents, and the 1967 entrance into the Sacramento state Capitol building by an openly armed group of Black Panthers, who were not punished at all. Sadly, many good people instinctively declared there was “no comparison.” I can’t illustrate the division that exists, and the problems we face, any clearer than that. The “Woke” Left sees everything now through their own emotional bias.
The two party system was very, very bad. But we are now living under imminent One Party rule. And it’s a party that is far too similar to Big Brother’s in Orwell’s 1984. Frightening prospects exist for the common American under “Woke” party leadership. Reparations? Perhaps a ban or at least an abridgment of the First Amendment? South African-style Truth and Reconciliation committees? Open and strictly enforced quotas in all walks of life? Banning of the words “man” and “woman?” A constitutional amendment to enshrine all 57 genders as ironclad law?
One thing you won’t see under “Woke” rule is an audit of the Federal Reserve and reform of our counterfeit fractional banking system. Or a new JFK assassination or 9/11 investigation. Or a decades overdue upgrade of our Third World infrastructure. Or an abolition of private prisons. Or a change in our misguided, Israeli-driven foreign policy. Or a demand that the intelligence agencies make their budgets public. Or spending cuts for the military industrial complex. Or demands to bring any of the troops home. And most obviously, not even a tepid debt jubilee for all those devastated by the senseless economic lockdown.
Donald Trump’s legacy will ultimately be that he forever destroyed any chances of a real Third Party ever arising in this country. There will never be another populist using his revolutionary rhetoric again. Instead, his cartoon personality assures that the disastrous two party duopoly is now set in stone. Except it’s even worse than that, since the Stupid Party has ceded all power to the Evil Party, we will be completely under the rule of “Woke” tyrants, but for token clowns like Lindsay Graham, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and Nikki Haley. The Stupid Party is dead, long live the Stupid Party!
Trump will not run in 2024. He many not legally be able to, because Lady Pelosi and company want to either invoke the 25th amendment, or ram through a warp speed impeachment, ironically mimicking Trump’s unwise push for a potentially deadly dose of something his loyal base strongly opposes. Trump has now been apparently banned for life from Twitter, at the initial behest of former First Lady Michelle Obama, who has an all too bright political future in our “Woke” Orwellian world. For someone who communicated exclusively through Twitter, this is a bitter pill for Trump to swallow. One pictures him tapping aimlessly away on his keyboard, while shoving down Big Macs and Diet Cokes.
Our only chance is that the AOC-types, the “Squad,” wind up embroiled in ugly disagreements with the old “Woke” guard like Pelosi, Schumer, and pseudo-President Biden. Maybe they can distract each other enough to prevent the worst measures from being implemented. Gridlock has always been our best friend on Capitol Hill. The odds of any of these glorified welfare recipients ever doing something good is so remote that their inactivity is the best we can hope for. Our new leaders may be diverse in appearance, but they certainly aren’t diverse in perspective. They will all support war, engage in corruption, and follow orders.
Rumors are that people who merely attended the rally on the Mall last Wednesday have been fired from their jobs. Well, no one protested when all those people were fired last year, for criticizing the violent riots on social media, on their own free time. AOC and others call Trump voters “complicit” in his election. That means an accessory to a crime. So Trump’s election, in their “Woke” eyes, was a crime. Maybe a “hate crime.” I would say that the logistics of attempting to punish or prosecute 70 million voters would be unfathomable, but I don’t think you can overestimate the “Wokeness” of our new leaders. They may very well make “White privilege” a crime. They may ban the word Trump from society, like one of Orwell’s unpersons.
I could not be more demoralized or disillusioned. Trump’s four years were almost entirely bereft of the “winning” he promised. “Trust the plan” seems like the most bitter joke imaginable now. The only arrests were of Trump’s associates, who were prosecuted by his Justice Department. The same Justice Department that declined to prosecute Hillary Clinton. Or look at Hunter Biden’s laptop. Or investigate vote fraud.
Trump was the commander-in-chief for four years. He could have brought all the troops home, as he often threatened to do. He could have closed the border, as he often threatened to do. He could have written those Executive Orders he promised, to ban DACA, ban birth-right citizenship, close sanctuary cities, and end the foreign VISA worker programs. Instead, while he undeniably was preoccupied with fending off attacks for his entire time in office, including a laughably partisan impeachment effort, he spent most of his time in office tweeting. And engaging in childish food fights with state-controlled journalists and clueless celebrities. The level of discourse is now less civil than it has ever been.
Trump’s rhetoric alone, however, puts him apart from all presidents since JFK. The things he alluded to, or casually mentioned, were outside the pale. No respectable politician would ever touch them. It was Trump’s rhetoric at his wildly enthusiastic rallies, and his attacks on the establishment via Twitter, that caused that establishment to hate him like no other public figure in our history. Trump Derangement Syndrome is far more real than any Soviet-style invented mental illness. So many of my former friends, good people all, have fallen victim to it. They hate him irrationally, and they will not listen to reason on the subject.
I don’t know where we go from here, or even where the scripted Punch and Judy show goes. If Trump isn’t impeached or taken out by the 25th amendment, he’ll be 78 years old in 2024. He has almost superhuman energy for someone his age, but sooner or later it will catch up with him. And I think his support has peaked. A certain number of those even at the rally have to be disappointed, in falling for the “big” event on the 6th, many traveling from far flung parts of the country (as did Ashli Babbitt, who was murdered by a cop at the Capitol), only to be unceremoniously rejected and told to go home by their leader.
Beyond Trump, the Stupid Party has no one else. Trump was only elected because he never really was a Republican. Stupid Party favorites like Nikki Haley and Paul Ryan are literally empty suits, standing for nothing except war and lowered corporate taxes. They would be lucky to win 20 percent of the vote in a presidential election. Because Trump didn’t deport the millions of illegals in this country, and Biden is about to grant them all amnesty, the voting demographic will shift into impossible territory for the Republicans. Trump will be the last Republican president.
The “Woke” rise to power is the culmination of decades of brain washing, on the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, on ESPN, by Oprah and The View, and on every college campus in America. Only by diabolical, Pavlovian programming could you get perhaps a majority of the country to think that men can menstruate, and have babies. Or get young parents to hold parties celebrating their 3 or 4 year old child’s conversion to the opposite gender. That would be child abuse in any sane society. Here and now, it is being celebrated by every media outlet. You can’t fight city hall, when city hall completely controls the the airwaves.
And the internet, once the shining beacon for all of us, is standing on wobbly legs as well. Big tech is censoring virtually all opposition to the One Party. The people who support the horrific likes of Kamala Harris, and Beto O’Rourke, and Amy Klobuchar, and Pete Buttigieg, do not remotely believe in free speech. It’s a wonder they don’t burst into flames as they swear allegiance to a Constitution they not only don’t support, but sneer at as a “racist” relic. Unless more people stand up, the internet will eventually look like your average cable or satellite package of channels. Blogs like this will be banned. The last thing the “Woke” elites want is for average people to analyze public issues without filtering it all through an overpaid talking head.
I wish I could find some glimmer of hope. Some of Trump’s most faithful supporters are still believing that he is going to activate an Executive Order, or invoke the Insurrection Act. The White Hats are still making plans. It is almost literally the last hour, but maybe they have a sense of the dramatic. The Q folks are still trumpeting arrests and sealed indictments that are invisible to the public. All the biggest swamp creatures still seem to be walking free, so I’m not sure just who is being arrested. The swamp seems fuller than ever.
Trump is surrounded by those he can’t trust, we’re told. This is unquestionably true, but he appointed every single one of them. He put Never Trumper Christopher Wray in charge of the FBI. Was that even an improvement over the odious Comey? He replaced the strangely listless Jeff Sessions with Deep State Hall of Famer William Barr. What other Attorney General in our history has refused to investigate those scheming against his boss, while eagerly targeting his boss’s campaign aides, who have done nothing criminally wrong? And Trump picked Mike Pence as his running mate; another Never Trumper whose failure to stand by the president should have surprised no one.
One young Senator seems promising- Josh Hawley of Missouri. However, Simon & Schuster cancelled Hawley’s contract for a book exposing big tech and big pharma, because he spoke out in the Senate, protesting the fraudulent election. Many are calling on him to resign. This is the “cancel culture” element of the One Party, and we all either need to fight it or get used to it. Offend somebody who is “Woke,” and get fired. Instantly. Without passing “Go” or collecting $200. And no one will speak out in your defense. You should have known better- watch what you say. The Constitution doesn’t protect “hate speech.”
We haven’t been a free country for a long time. But we weren’t this bad. And we’re going to get a lot worse. We all saw what happened when a president spouting populist rhetoric, with millions of followers, attempted to expose electoral fraud, for which massive evidence exists. However, those videotapes, and over a thousand sworn affidavits amount to “no evidence!” according to every disciple of the “Woke” party. The mere mention of vote fraud gets you kicked off Twitter and You Tube, and brings the “Fact Checkers” out on Facebook. We’re like a collective battered wife, hoping that our abusive spouse will give us a smile and bind the wounds he caused. Stockholm Syndrome is too mild a word to describe American malaise.
The “Woke” supporters are calling what happened at the Capitol an “insurrection.” This event, being compared to Pearl Harbor and 9/11, will undoubtedly be used to further crack down on what’s left of our civil liberties. They want all those involved to be locked up for ten years. The more vicious social justice warriors want them executed for treason. Law means nothing when emotion, and not reason, rule those enforcing it. Politicized prosecutions should never happen. Under “Woke” rule, every prosecution, and every punishment, will be at the whim of who’s enforcing it.
I’ll keep writing this blog, and publishing books, and doing my weekly radio show, and doing interviews, for as long as they let me. I’ve been calling this a crumbling country. Or a collapsing country. We are no longer in the process of something; we have crumbled, we have collapsed. The only thing that can save us from a tyranny the likes of which the world has never seen is an uprising of many millions, in concert with each other, fighting for the same goals.
In this fantastically divided country, after the brief age of Trump, we remain locked down, wearing masks, socially distancing, listless and rudderless. Like Orwell’s Winston Smith, we have learned to love Big Brother.
After 8 long years of ultra-loose monetary policy from the Federal Reserve, it’s no secret that inflation is primed to soar. If your IRA or 401(k) is exposed to this threat, it’s critical to act now! That’s why thousands of Americans are moving their retirement into a Gold IRA. Learn how you can too with a free info kit on gold from Birch Gold Group.

Good analysis. I do wonder why Trump cultists think he’s the greatest president we’ve ever had. Party and the cult of personality rose above principled liberty. On top of what you wrote, it was Trump who appointed two leftist, globalist medical advisors, whose recommendations and policies have led (and still are leading) millions to misery, and in long term care facilities, early death from neglect and isolation.
I wonder if we have what it takes for this “uprising of many millions” of people. Perhaps when the Q cult loons will wake up themselves and see how their reliance on “Trust the plan!” and “Trump is playing 4D chess, at least!” was really nothing more than an excuse to do nothing themselves but rather hoping that the “process” itself would right the ship. We are no longer a United States. Now we are just the States of America. America is dead. Long live America.
Simon & Schuster would never have published Hawley’s book anyway. This was baked in the cake along with the election fraud.
While I agree Trump was not the Messiah, he tried to keep his promises, at least. But Trump was always about the deal, not the system. He was too naive in many ways. But, lets face the truth, his task was impossible.
The idea that a third party is even an option is not realistic. It would take decades to put one in place with any degree of power. Having lived in many different countries, I’ve seen them come and go and I’ve never seen one get traction. Not one. The only option is to take over one of the existing parties; even the Democrat party could be overrun and changed by 80 million voters.
I’m going to take a different tack; why is it that conservatives resort to retreats and barricades? Here’s a thought that might not be popular, but instead of retreating to the red states why don’t 10 million red-staters flood California and take it over politically, focus on San Fran and LA first. Remove from power Pelosi, Swallwell, Feinstein, Schiff, Waters, Harris, etc etc. Take over 53 House seats, 2 Senate seats, then go after Big Tech in their back yard. Stop the illegal immigration. Stop the Sanctuary Cities. Let the crooks try to spit away to form their own party.
Trump’s cabinet was loaded with globalists from the very beginning, and all the Q people did was make excuses for 4 years as to why he was still working so closely with them. There were too many inconsistencies within Trump’s administration, and it was naive for people to think that he would ever change the status quo. Politics is a lost cause. The liberty movement has been pushing that angle since Ron Paul’s first run in 2008, but the smart people in the movement realized that it was NEVER going to be about changing the system by working within the system. The smart people knew that the real goal was to spread the message and get the truth to as many people as possible, and we have accomplished that in spades. Many people are newbies to the movement and have no idea how hard it was and how small we were only a decade ago. Today, we are in the many millions. Now, the real fight begins, and it will not be won with politics or diplomacy. We are dealing with an organized cult of psychopaths with unlimited wealth and influence within government; the political left is merely a symptom of this greater cancer. It is time to remove these “globalists” from the equation, permanently. This is the ONLY way to save our culture from destruction.
What worries me is that California is the engine room of the anti-American project. If that fact is ignored there will be no chance. What is happening now is the great migration of leftists from California to red states, being replaced by a great migration of illegals to California. If this isn’t addressed the demographics will overwhelm any attempts to reset the system. This is a numbers game.
California is not an “engine” for anything. You give it far too much credit. CA is a failing state with overwhelming debt. It will collapse in due course even with federal stimulus. The people with real businesses, the producers, are leaving in droves. The illegals bring nothing with them to replace that production and will only collapse the state even faster. Mark my words.
California is the engine for FOOD. That is the only thing of value that California produces. But it’s BIG.
If it collapsed to the point of being unable to export food, millions of Americans will die of starvation in a year. Those of us who are prepared will get along just fine, so long as we can avoid the unprepared.
I wanted Trump to win the election so we would have more time to prepare for the inevitable. Biden will lead to a rapid collapse. I cheer for California for the same reason.
A collapsing California will cause mass starvation more quickly than the socialist/communist hell hole California will. Why do you think they have shut down everything? Why was I hearing mainstream media reporting that migrant workers were not allowed to work a lot of farms in California. If we save nothing else, it has to be food production from California.
They are actively trying to collapse EVERYTHING before the Great Reset can move forward. That is when they will move forward with the rebuild, and that is also when our window of opportunity will show itself….
The supply chain is going to break down anyway if they continue to hyperinflate the dollar; prepare accordingly. Also, if everyone started producing food for themselves then the country would not need CA. It’s not as vital as leftists try to make it seem.
Great article and exceptional response Brandon! As Brandon has said over and over again, Trump himself was a “straw man” for the deep state and Q was fake/psyop/controlled opposition. That’s why Trump was so ridiculous and over-acting in everything he did. Anyone who can’t see that is delusional and unfortunately depressed right now that none of the things he promised got done. Simple as that.
I agree with Brandon that only secession of Patriot states and a civil war will have a chance of bringing back freedom. That’s partially why I chose South Carolina. It has some bigger cities for city life if you crave it, but nothing like Georgia’s Atlanta which is obviously a leftard/socialist haven and was recently taken over by the Democrats in this last election cycle.
its refreshing to finally see some objective criticism of Trump….(whom i voted for 2x – i wanted jobs, he delivered). Don’t be so down though. Yes, the next year or two are going to be ugly for former-trumpers. We need to be honest with ourselves and get in front of the future. We have been right – however possibly a tad self-serving. to our own demise. We are big, we are no longer the majority. There will be battles between the “woke” crowd…that is inevitable. We don’t need social media or state run media – its time to live in the real world and start thriving. If they make community college free, encourage everyone to take a class…or two. When you see disagreements between wokes… don’t dismiss both of them. Pull out your “LIBERTY” and help one of them. Put LIBERTY stickers around. Use the word on social media. Instead of being the “white racists” we will be known as the “liberty people.” The tie-breaking vote between their inevitable split will wield a lot of power. That has worked well for the black political movement. Open your mind to the idea this may be good for us. if you have gonnereah – its really good to know you have it. and by popular vote, it appears we have it. We can make this work for us. Love people. Our best days are in front of us
Well said John. That is why, even if I could leave California…..I won’t. We can’t just all abandon and move, some of us have to be here in the trenches, doing what we can when we can. It takes, as I said before in another article, both types working together in concert…..Brandon and those like him doing the secession thing on that side of the divide…..meanwhile those like me taking opportunity to say a word now and then to those who look like they are looking for the answers, the right ones, and have nothing but woke people around them.
I live in a small community. I am Sufi which is somewhat connected to Islam. I say somewhat because it follows the old Islamic teachings before the extremists came along and is esoteric in nature, rather than exoteric which is what Islam has become.
But I wear a Hijab and a veil across my lower face when in town. I have talked to a lot of people over the years and I can tell you that many people, having only MSM to define their attitude toward Islam, or the fact that we willingly and joyously wear a face covering, have changed their minds considerably and now do not think this lifestyle is a threat and treat me as they would anyone else.
So I continue the same kind of attitude for this situation we are now facing politically. If I can get one person to change their consciousness, then I will be happy…..there just has to be some of us staying behind, doing this work, or the hate will continue to grow on this side of the divide…because there will be no one left here to tell the truth.
I ran across this comment on RT, thought I might share it. It was in connection with an interview Noam Chomsky gave regarding the statement that the left made about the Capitol situation on the 6th “came out of nowhere”. Noam said it didn’t come out of no where, it is just no one is asking the question of the people who were there.
Comment someone made: “Chomsky says they (meaning the Dems) weren’t ABLE to defend the Capitol. This is very disingenuous. They let it happen to create a perceived crisis. This was not an insurrection, it was a bunch of clowns taking selfies. If it were a real insurrection there would have been 50,000 guys with AR-15’s.”
This sort of made my day, reading this.
Haven’t yal heard this statement, throughout the years? Referring to the illegals crossing our boarders. “Go back to your own country and fix it.” I have heard and read it many times. Wondered it my self. Well folks it’s time we understand our boarders. Who in our families are standing. Then to our communities as Davilyn gave an example of in her life. It’s time we comprehend we allowed the enemy into our homes to entertain us. Brainwash us and our children. Wrong. ???. The other day my cashier told me to put a mask on. I ignored her as she checked out my items. Again. Put your mask on. Then I said. Look my very presence here is securing you receive a paycheck. My business has been taken from me. You are not going to take the air I breath from me. By then I had my groceries bagged and I left the store. Just sayin’ we can fight back this way. Just think about it. Fix it where you stand. ?
That may work for a time in some places, but when they start arresting you for not putting on a mask, you better make sure you have a lot of friends to back you up. Look at it this way; if you lived in a concentration camp, is “resisting” at that point worth a damn? Maybe it would be better to make sure you don’t end up in the concentration camp in the first place. This is what secession and separation is; a way to prevent a giant concentration camp from being built around you while you go about your daily life thinking you are resisting.
You’re right. Keep goin’. ?
