The Rittenhouse Case Proves The Establishment Wants To Bring Back Star Chamber Tyranny

November 17, 2021

By Brandon Smith

One of the most interesting stories from the early days leading up to the American Revolution involves the events surrounding the Boston Massacre. On March 5th, 1770 the Stamp Act had just been repealed but British Soldiers were ever present in Boston as a show of force against the “rowdy” colonists. The British government, in order to save face, implemented the Townshend Acts instead as a means to continue taxing the colonies (without representation, of course). Anger was growing in the streets.

The presence of the Red Coats in the city added to the public fury and protests were sparked. One such protest was raging in front of the Custom House on King Street over a disagreement between wig maker Henry Knox and a soldier. The argument grew into what was later described as a riot. Allegedly, the crowd became violent and started throwing objects at the soldiers. One of the soldiers let off a shot and then someone yelled “Fire!”, causing all the Red Coats to shoot into the crowd killing five of them and injuring others.

The colonial justice system could have chosen to use their position to railroad the soldiers in question and make an ideological example out of them. Instead, in the first trial of Captain John Preston, ample legal representation was given (the lawyer was John Adams, who would later become the 2nd President of the US), along with a fair trial. Adams’ position that the soldiers believed they were under imminent danger of bodily harm convinced the jury and a not-guilty verdict was given for the majority of the soldiers, with manslaughter charges for two of them.

Adams felt that his victory in the defense of the British soldiers was actually a victory for the colonies and ultimately the Revolution. You see, the British looked upon the colonials as “insurrectionists” and barbarians. They did not think that a fair trial for a soldier in the colonies was even possible. By proving them wrong with grace, logic and objectivity, Adams and the jury destroyed a common lie perpetuated by the monarchy and the British establishment. The colonies had more honor than the British did.

This lack of honor among the British establishment became evident before and during the Revolutionary War when the “Star Chamber” became the defacto law of the monarchy in the colonies.

The Star Chamber was an elitist operated “justice system” or tribunal originally designed so that the British aristocracy was assured a fair trial whenever they actually faced a criminal charge. In other words, it was a special court for the power elites that was separate and superior to the courts used for average peasants. Publicly, it was also presented as a means for commoners to redress grievances against aristocrats, but it was well understood that the Star Chamber would rarely go against the nobility UNLESS they had also offended the king. If they went against the king, they would be black-bagged like anyone else.

During the unrest in the colonies, however, the Star Chamber was used in a different manner; it became a weapon to crush dissent among subjects that spoke out against the empire and sowed the seeds of “sedition”.

The dreaded court was highly secretive and the public was often obstructed from its proceedings. Its rulings were overseen by the establishment rather than a jury and in many cases those people being charged were never given a chance to defend themselves. They were sentenced before they ever entered a courtroom, if they entered a courtroom at all. Silence was often considered an admission of guilt rather than a right of the accused. Punishments were brutal, including torture and imprisonment under the worst possible conditions.

The death penalty was not allowed, but the court would instead place defendants in conditions so horrible that they tended to die on their own.

All of this was justified under the claim that every person charged was treasonous, and therefore they did not deserve a fair trial among their peers. After the war was over and the British were defeated, the Founding Fathers drafted large portions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in order to counter and prevent the same abuses they saw under the Star Chamber. The 5th Amendment in particular was directly inspired as a way to stop Star Chamber-like abuses of court power.

But lets leap ahead to current day, where we find that the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, now nearing its end, has beyond anything else revealed a vicious intention by the establishment to bring back the oppression of the Star Chamber through the media manipulated court of public opinion, mob rule as well as violations of well established constitutional law.

The political left could have chosen the path of reason, allowing justice to take its natural course through a display of objectivity and fairness as John Adams and the colonials did during the Boston Massacre trial. They have instead chosen to take the same route as the British, motivated by a “win at any cost” mentality, using lies, strategic omissions, censorship and threats of mob violence to turn the Rittenhouse trial into a political proxy war.

Here are just a handful of examples that show the establishment and the media are seeking to undermine centuries of normal constitutional protections including the right of self defense…

The Kenosha “Peaceful Protest” Misdirection

First, lets be clear that the media’s handling of the entire Kenosha incident was corrupt from the very beginning. Aside from refusing to call the riots that erupted what they were – RIOTS, the media has also consistently mischaracterized the police shooting as brutality against black suspect Jacob Blake. Blake, crippled by the incident, has been painted as a “victim and hero” in the news.

In reality, Blake had a warrant out for his arrest including trespassing, disorderly conduct and sexual assault. The police were made aware of this before they attempted to detain him. Blake also had a history of resisting arrest, and of course attempted to do so again in Kenosha. Videos clearly show Blake trying to march away from officers and jump back into his vehicle.

The media claimed Blake was unarmed, yet he is also clearly holding a karambit style knife in the same videos, which the police ordered him to drop and he refused. The Wisconsin DOJ confirmed that Blake was armed and Blake himself admitted to having the knife. Officers were already on edge as Blake tried to reach into his car, or use his car to get away, or possibly use the car as a weapon.

Frankly, Blake’s history and behavior at the scene make him a criminal, not a hero or a victim. All this information was readily available within about a day of the event. The media attempted to hide these FACTS surrounding his shooting from the public and deliberately sowed seeds of unrest. And the ignorant and reactionary people within the BLM movement ate up the propaganda.

When violence broke out, the media portrayed the riots as “peaceful protests” for “racial justice”. Even though, just as with George Floyd, there was no evidence whatsoever that racial motivations had anything to do with it. The riots were based on lies from beginning to end, and this false narrative has bled into and tainted the handling of the Kyle Rittenhouse case – For even if Rittenhouse was defending himself from attackers, the attackers are still presented as the “good guys” because they were fighting for “racial justice”, which again, is simply not true.

The Kid Defending Himself Was Actually The Villain Because He Defended Himself?

The prosecution in the Rittenhouse case should have watched the widely available video evidence (and the secret FBI evidence) and seen that without a shadow of a doubt Rittenhouse was defending himself from an unprovoked attack by an unhinged mob. It is no coincidence that every person Rittenhouse was forced to shoot had a violent criminal record, including Joseph Rosenbaum who had multiple convictions for pedophilia including 11 counts of child molestation. These people were chasing Rittenhouse because they intended to do him harm just as they had done others harm.

The media and the prosecution offer a bizarrely disconnected view, in which Kyle Rittenhouse “provoked” the mob into attacking him simply because he was there and because he had a firearm. Multiple witnesses and FBI surveillance footage indicate Joseph Rosenbaum chased and then attacked Rittenhouse, trying to take his rifle by force, which was why he was shot. But this does not matter in the Star Chamber.

Lead Prosecutor Thomas Binger openly argued that Rittenhouse ‘lost his right to self defense because he was carrying a gun.’ Binger apparently overlooks the fact that one of Rittenhouse’s attackers, Gaige Grosskreutz, had a gun (illegally due to his felony record) and admitted in court that he ran at Rittenhouse with the weapon pointed at him when Rittenhouse shot him. But somehow, only Kyle’s gun was the cause of the violence and all his attackers were responding to the threatening presence of his weapon?

This has been the overarching crux of the prosecution’s case as well as the media narrative: They say Rittenhouse should be treated as an “active shooter” and that the leftist mob was leaping into action, bravely trying to stop him. This does not translate at all when we watch the video of the event; it is clear that Rittenhouse is being pursued by the mob and and they attack him from behind, causing him to fall to the ground. Only then does he defend himself with the rifle against his attackers, including Anthony Huber who tried to bash Kyle’s head in with a skateboard and Grosskreutz who ran at him with a Glock.

To clarify, because this may not be a widely understood factor, if someone is trying to get away from you, you cannot attack them and then legally claim “self defense” was your motive. Only police officers have the right to physically detain a person who is trying to escape.

Also, if Rittenhouse was an “active shooter” you would think he would have fired belligerently into the crowd, but he did not; he only fired on the people trying to hurt him.

The prosecution and media narratives are a blatant attack on the right of self defense in general. In closing arguments, the prosecution states that Rittenhouse was a “coward” that should have used his fists to fight off the angry mob instead of using his rifle; displaying a clear intent to undermine not just Rittenhouse’s character, but undermine the concept of overall gun rights. The case itself is obviously politically slanted against Rittenhouse because he is a conservative. Had this been a leftist shooting a mob of conservatives under the same circumstances at the Jan 6th riot I doubt it would have ever gone to trial.

The implications of this are far reaching. If Rittenhouse is found guilty despite all the evidence to the contrary, the assertion will then be that self defense is no longer a protected right for anyone with the wrong politics. It will be seen as open season on conservatives at any such events in the future and all defense law will come into question, especially any defense law that involves gun rights.

The 5th Amendment Attack And The Strategy Of Subverting A Trial

Various establishment institutions have been trying to undermine the 5th Amendment and the right to remain silent for decades now. Once again, we saw this evidenced in the Rittenhouse trial when prosecutors sought to attack the defendant on potential evidence that was ostensibly dismissed before the trial by the judge. The prosecution asked questions related to the evidence anyway. The judge removed the jury from the room and then chastised Binger, who then proceeded to question Rittenhouse’s right to remain silent on the issue.

This may seem to be overly complicated legal jousting, but this action by the prosecution was an aggressive attempt to taint the jury with misconceptions of the defendant as a violent “vigilante” rather than the victim of a mob attack. Also, questioning a defendant’s right to remain silent is belligerent to say the least. But beyond that, the faux pas by the prosecution could have led to an immediate mistrial declared.

Keep in mind that the prosecution had already suffered numerous failures and the case was going downhill for them. I suspect that this may have been an attempt by Binger to deliberately cause a mistrial and to retry Rittenhouse at a later date, undoing his many mistakes and getting another opportunity to bury Rittenhouse despite his innocence. This is how the Star Chamber begins – When you can be tried over and over again until the establishment gets the outcome they wanted. Furthermore, if the right to remain silent comes into question, then any refusal to answer questions could become an assumed admission of guilt.

Silencing The Alternative Media And Obstructing Honest Reporting

Perhaps the most blatant act by the establishment has been to use Big Tech to censor various elements and observations of the Rittenhouse trial. Facebook and Twitter have been policing Rittenhouse related posts, and YouTube blocked the majority of independent streamers covering the live closing arguments of the case. The mainstream media has completely avoided any mention of this decision, but of course they would; it makes them the only source for case coverage and their narrative the only narrative.

And how about that thermal surveillance evidence from the FBI that only saw the light of day in the middle of the trail? Withholding evidence is a direct obstruction of justice but also a direct attempt to undermine public insight into the case. The narrative is easier to fabricate if one filters out any evidence that contradicts it.

This control of the narrative has led to widespread disinformation in the Rittenhouse case. There are still many leftists out there that actually think the people Kyle shot were black and that Rittenhouse is a “racist.” The media has asserted for the past year that Rittenhouse’s self defense was somehow related to “white supremacy.” Media hacks like CNN’s Don Lemon have also insinuated that the judge in the case is biased and possibly racist.

The media has asserted that if Rittenhouse is not found guilty that riots will erupt once again to provide punishment where the courts “failed.” If riots do explode, it will be because of the misleading and poisonous lies constantly spread by the same mainstream media. But let’s think about the consequences of this for a moment…

The Star Chamber is an ideal tyrannical tool, but the establishment and leftists do not have it in hand yet. They want it badly, and their behavior during the Rittenhouse case makes this clear. I REPEAT: The Star Chamber is not upon us yet, but it is coming soon if these people get their way.

Rule by the mob goes well beyond the effects of the Star Chamber, but this could be by design. Think of it this way: Say Rittenhouse is found Not Guilty, and BLM mobs burn down Kenosha in response. Future courts and future juries in similar cases might then decide it’s easier to ignore facts and evidence so that mob violence is avoided and the leftists are appeased. The Star Chamber will return because it will be seen as a preferable alternative to national riots. The Star Chamber will become a mechanism for the “greater good” and the establishment will get what it wanted all along.

This cannot be allowed to happen. The Rittenhouse trial does not represent a singular shooting event and an isolated case for self defense, it represents a fulcrum point for the very fabric of our society and what justice will actually mean in the years to come. If an obviously innocent kid is convicted of murder merely because of his political beliefs, or if the mob is allowed to burn and destroy swaths of a city because the verdict is Not Guilty, then every effort the Founding Fathers made to stop the creation of another Star Chamber will be erased.

    Excellent analysis, as usual, Brandon. I would add an element to the post-verdict scenario. If Kyle is found innocent, the ptb may well decide that they can get more miles out of this crisis by making sure that Kyle is murdered by an “outraged racial justice activist”. The riots will have immediately started, of course, so that every outraged patriot within 500 miles of Kenosha would have an obvious target for their wrath. Will they show up? Is this the reaction the ptb want? Or or they still just adjusting the heat on the frog pot?

      On September 7, 1876, the James-Younger Gang rode into Northfield, MN, intent on robbing the bank. Unbeknownst to them, it was the opening day of hunting season in Minnesota, and rifles and shotguns were sitting on every kitchen table, cleaned, oiled, and loaded. Someone went running down the street yelling, “Get your guns, boys, they’re robbing the bank.” Add to this the fact that every male citizens of the town from age 30 to 45 was a seasoned Civil War veteran.

      The murder of Rittenhouse would be the final straw. With their safe-spaces and protectors in the MSM, our leftist class has no clue what would transpire. If this happens, they will learn what true “provocation” is…

    Excellent article, Brandon! You are correct in every way.

  • Concerned November 17, 2021 at 9:48 am

    Last night I tuned into CNN briefly to get a feel for how heavily they’re twisting the facts and distorting the truth. As I tuned in they were beginning an interview with a law professor who presented a series of lies about the assailants, the behavior of the assailants, and about the actions and intentions of Rittenhouse.

    Without going into detail, their narrative was almost 100% contrary to evidence and testimony that was presented during the trial. Using the so-called legal “expert”, CNN portrayed Rittenhouse as a type of vigilante who was provoking trouble, and that his actions were therefore criminal. For example, while describing Rittenhouse’s actions in a manner that characterized him as a threat, the “expert” conveniently omitted the fact that the peaceful protestors were actually an outright uncontrolled riot, who were actively looting and burning down the city. They also omitted that Rittenhouse had been chased down by a criminal rioter who previously told Rittenhouse he was going to kill him tried, and during the chase had assaulted Rittenhouse while violently trying to disarm him. And of course, they conveniently forgot to describe that what happened next was that a fast moving and violent mob of criminal rioters began reigning down on Rittenhouse with weapons, as a target and an outlet of their rage and hatred.

    The same twisted and lying narrative is being promulgated by all mainstream media organizations and social media platforms. This is clearly another means of furthering the divide among Americans who don’t understand (or believe) that America is being intentionally being divided. We are being divided on multiple fronts, in order to weaken our ability to stand united against the rapidly evolving Great Reset, which is the global control plan that the progressive authoritarian financial powers are seeking to impose on all nations over the next several years.

    From that perspective, while this most recent example of lies and deceptions related to the Rittenhouse trial are essential to understand, to expose, and to respond to with truth, we also need to be aware that this is just another example in a long series of provocations and obfuscations that will be used to incite more division. Don’t take the bait. Division is the goal of the evil “enlightened” progressives. Their strategy is to keep us reacting and responding, so that we aren’t acting and uniting.

    Here’s the good news: The media has so distorted this story, it’s become clear and obvious to many un-awakened Americans that a massive disinformation campaign is underway. If we take a play from the authoritarian playbook, this crisis is actually becoming an opportunity. The opportunity right now is to illustrate how we are intentionally being divided by lies and distortions. Once people are aware, they’ll have an opportunity to reconsider their reactions. For example, when you feel a strong fundamental need for separation based on ideology, you can pause to understand that incidents like the Rittenhouse trial are used to create these feelings. It’s a propaganda tool and an emotional trap, used to make many Americans believe at a fundamental level that existential survival can only be ensured via division. The instilling of that belief is a result of successful propaganda. The antidote is to highlight these division tactics and to promote unity as the response, rather than the division that the financial powers are hoping we will support.

      Great post “Concerned”,
      We won’t fall for their divide and conquer tactics. We will stand united and fight the real enemy when the time comes. Perhaps today.

      No. Unity with crazy communists is impossible. It is not the solution.
      It seems @concerned forgot all about Brandon’s very last article of 11 November 2021:
      If there are any decent rational people who still watch or believe mainstream media, but hold truth, justice and the 2ndA dear, great, bring them over from the dark side.

  • The Happy Hindoo November 17, 2021 at 10:36 am

    Kyle Rittenhouse is the quintessential American hero. He lost his father to the opioid crisis but did not allow that to bring him down. He became a volunteer aid to firefighters, joined a militia and trained as a medic – all in his mid teens. Clearly a young man that only wanted to HELP his community. While his town was being smashed and burned, he stood up and showed more courage than 99% of men in America.

    If Kyle is either found guilty or harmed by a mob, that should be the final line in the sand for all conservatives and liberty minded people across America. It would be time to simply opt out of all establishment structures and start parallel economies, parallel justice systems, parallel health systems, education systems, etc.

  • Greg B November 17, 2021 at 10:40 am

    This reminds of the trials of Ammon and Cliven Bundy and others over the Bundy Ranch stand-off. I remember how the judge and prosecution went out of their way to make an example out of them all the while not even pretending to care about giving them a fair trial. Their behavior was so unhinged the case against the Bundy’s was dismissed.

    And you are right; this is much bigger than Kyle Rittenhouse or even the right to self-defense. This is about the right to due process itself. If that is undermined, the last form of nonviolent defense against tyranny will be gone.

  • Derek November 17, 2021 at 10:42 am

    Great analysis Brandon once again,
    The media is definitely completely obfuscating this case and the events to a maximum level. The only way you could possibly believe anything the mainstream is saying is if you don’t watch the actual footage or the actual trial by the defense attorneys. If you are purely relying on the MSM, then you’re not going to get the reality or truth, which will lead to believing lies.

    Kick out the MSM from your life and focus on what really matters. If you want to know about an event, seek that actual source material not filtered through CNN or any news agency.

    ZeroHedge has just released an article which indicates that the prosecutorial misconduct is indeed egregious in extremis.
    The Prosecutor in the case used a very low resolution video in support of his efforts to bias the Jury arguing from which that Rittenhouse was effectively the aggressor. As it happens, the State (and Prosecutor) were in possession of High Resolution video which substantively contradicts his every assertion regarding Rittenhouse.
    The Defense has now filed for dismissal with PREJUDICE – meaning that there would not be a possibility of a retrial if so granted by the presiding Judge. If not, then the State Appelate Court is going to have a field day with this one…
    But really Folks, aren’t you yet tired enough of the Left’s Shite to actually begin pestering your Red Srate Legislators to finally REMEDY the division twixt ideologies in the permanent sense?
    Certainly, I am.

    Everyone here knows the kid was legally entitled to self-defense and he exercised that right properly and within the law, but none of that means a thing in All-Politics-All-The-Time America.

    The kid is going down. He will fry.

  • Random63 November 17, 2021 at 1:03 pm

    Anonymous Conservative has an interesting analysis of how the events unfolded…

    Two interesting tidbits directly from Kyle’s defense attorney in his closing argument. One, Joseph Rosenbaum, who was carrying his belongings in a hospital bag, as if he had just been released from a mental health facility, and who was said to have just been released from a mental health facility, and who himself said on video he had just been released, “and wasn’t afraid to go back,” has no record of having been at any mental health facility or detention center, and neither the defense or the prosecution can account for his whereabouts prior to the riot. So the defense tried to locate where this guy came from, or where he was in the weeks prior to the riot, to show he was a mental headcase, but they couldn’t locate any info, despite him clearly having been under a hold somewhere, dealing with therapists of some sort and believing himself he was locked up. Make of that what you will.

    Two, Gaige Grosskreutz was brought into the hospital ambulatory and conscious, but in shock with his bicep blown off, and somehow he ended up admitted as an anonymous patient with no name, so his best friend couldn’t find him when he went to be with him. I doubt Gaige was thinking clearly enough in those frantic moments to request he be listed as a John Doe. I doubt the hospital, getting a rush patient in from the riots with his arm blown off, thought to hide his identity as they were trying to wheel him into emergency surgery. So how did he end up anonymized, even days later?

    Now suppose the riot was a complex intel operation, being run from an underground command center many miles away, by intel professionals watching events live on their TV screens, like feeds from numerous “streamers” like Gaige who were running around with their phones, streaming the riot. Suppose that command center was giving orders to their operatives on the ground in the riot through hidden earpieces, using bounced signals from locally positioned repeaters brought in by “Antifa” commanders. Imagine the plan for that night was to make an example out of some patriot who was armed, to counter the images of armed patriots in body armor protesting the Cabal, and make those guys look less scary. Suppose that command center picked Kyle out of the video streams during the early moments of the riot, because he was clearly young, out of shape, naive to how things worked, and looked like a Cherry these seasoned Cabal assets could roll over.

    In the trial we learned, that at just the wrong moment, whoever was protecting the CarSource suddenly bailed with no explanation as the crowd moved in (the defense said it in closing). Then, one of the “leaders” of the armed patriots asked 17 year old Kyle to go down there to take the position, and at the same moment, Kyle’s “buddy” in the buddy system the patriots were using, who had been assigned to him earlier (a forty something Army vet), suddenly disappeared inexplicably from the side of the 17 year old kid he should have felt responsible for.
    So Kyle was suddenly alone and could not find him, just as the order to head to CarSource came in. So Kyle went toward the CarSource alone on orders, where Joseph Rosenbaum was hiding behind a car waiting, and where the FBI had just moved its overhead drone and aviation units to that location to record everything that was about to happen.

    What Cabal didn’t know was Kyle was under God’s protection, and just happened to be extra-sharp and highly cool under fire as well. So he smokes two Cabal protesters and cripples a third, all clearly in compliance with all legal strictures, before successfully exfiling and getting to safety. After everything plays out, nobody can say where Rosenbaum came from. Nobody can identify or locate crucial characters, like “Yellow Pants” and “Jump Kick Guy” (both terms from the trial), despite the FBI undoubtedly having the Identification of everyone present that night, and the videos going global. And when Grosskruetz gets admitted to the hospital, somebody knows this will be a clusterfuck, and has the authority to contact the hospital and make sure his name is removed from his admission records, so nobody can find him until they see all the videos, sort out how they are going to deal with it, and figure out what his story will need to be.

    It feels like a mad scramble by command after a perfectly planned clock-work op targeting a cherry turned into an epic Goatfuck, and they needed to hide everything until they could figure out how bad it was, and how they needed to handle it. After Kyle cleaned house, and command gave the order to shut down the riot and send everyone home right after it (why did the shooting not invigorate the crowd to riot even worse?), I will bet there were upwards of a dozen seasoned, high ranking intel professionals gathered in a conference room somewhere shitting bricks, grabbing all the video they could, and trying to figure out how they would keep this epic Goatfuck from blowing stratospheric. I would not be surprised at one point one said, “Well, at least tell me this little shit killed a black guy, so we have something to work with!”

    All of that fits together far better as coordinated intel activity, than it does as a random series of events, and odd coincidences, which left Kyle all alone, in the middle of the mob, under attack, with multiple aviation over him.

    “I suspect that this may have been an attempt by Binger to deliberately cause a mistrial and to retry Rittenhouse at a later date.” Totally. I think that’s exactly what they were going for and I noticed that many commenters on ZH agree with that thought.
    If an obviously innocent kid is convicted of murder merely because of his political beliefs, or if the mob is allowed to burn and destroy swaths of a city because the verdict is Not Guilty, then every effort the Founding Fathers made to stop the creation of another Star Chamber will be erased.” Right on.

    Great tie to American history. Defense law is certainly under threat for all in this trial. Especially in Slave states and counties.

    Hope free folk are moving out of the cities, organizing with like-minded people, know & support their local Sheriffs and training. Under stress, one’s proficiency drops 50% to their last training. Getting professional training is a recommended insurance policy for the times ahead.

  • David Homer November 18, 2021 at 6:15 am

    This sort of injustice has already happened in the US. Remember the O J Simpson trial? Everyone involved in that trial was told that he would not be found guilty no matter what, because they feared riots. The whole trial was just a show for the media. I fear justice may already be a thing of the past.

  • Lieutenant Beale November 18, 2021 at 10:15 am

    Brandon already has stated in a previous analysis what the solution is.
    Wokeism, Cancel Culture, Socialism, Marxism, Communism, Moral Relativism and any other cockamamie “ism” ain’t going away anytime soon. “Those people” are relentless and will never take NO for an answer.
    Separation is survival. I find it so ironic that one of the “battle cries” of the American Revolution was “Join or Die” (The disjointed segmented snake flag)
    Now, we have come full circle and the new battle cry is “Separate or Die”

    • Concerned November 19, 2021 at 8:29 am

      “Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall!”
      -Founding father John Dickinson, 1768

      “”Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs.”
      -Patrick Henry, 1799

      The woke, progressive Marxists and globalist money powers haven’t forgotten their history. They seek to divide us. Unfortunately, with all due respect, a majority of conservatives have only recently (in the past decade or so) begun to recognize the complete control that the money power globalists have over government, media, colleges, industry, etc. And many of those have only a limited realization, such as “deep state”, which only scratches the surface and therefore leaves a lot of room for globalists to continue to manipulate even those conservatives who are aware of such things as “deep state”.

      For example, President Trump would call out the so-called “deep state” on a routine basis without ever identifying how the GOP is also a globalist controlled entity. Virginia’s new governor-elect Glenn Youngkin is a perfect example. He’s a member of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and CEO of the Carlyle Group, the worlds 2nd largest private equity group. The chairman of the Carlyle Group is also chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations. So in one sense, you could say that the head of the Hydra is now heading up the government of Virginia.

      To help connect the dots between globalist control (e.g. deep state) over the US, every US Presidency (including Trump), regardless of political party, has been dominated by the globalist (deep state) Council on Foreign Relations. Here’s a list of CFR members appointed to the Biden cabinet:

      Kamala Harris, Vice President (CFR through family; Harvard; DLA Piper; Uber through family)
      Antony Blinken, Secretary of State (CFR member; Harvard and Columbia; WestExec)
      Janet Yellen, Secretary of the Treasury (CFR member; Yale and Harvard; Brookings)
      Lloyd Austin, Secretary of Defense (CFR member; WestExec; Raytheon)
      Linda Thomas-Greenfield, UN Ambassador (CFR member; Albright Stonebridge)
      Cecilia Rouse, Council of Economic Advisors (CFR director; Princeton; Rowe Price)
      Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of Homeland Security (CFR member; Wilmer Hale)
      Jake Sullivan, National Security Advisor (CFR author; Yale and Oxford; Carnegie)
      Ron Klain, Chief of Staff (CFR through family; Harvard; O’Melveny and Meyers)
      John Kerry, Special Envoy for Climate (CFR member; Yale)
      Susan Rice, Chief of Domestic Council (CFR member; Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford)
      William J. Burns, Director of Central Intelligence (CFR member; Oxford; Carnegie)
      Kurt M. Campbell, Indo-Pacific Tsar (CFR member; Harvard and Oxford; Asia Group)
      Thomas Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture (CFR member; Dairy Export Council)
      Gina Raimondo, Secretary of Commerce (CFR member; Oxford; Point Judith Capital)
      Eric S. Lander, Director of Office of Science and Technology (CFR member; Harvard)
      Jeffery Zients, Counselor to the President (CFR member; Cranemere)

      So ask yourself: Who exactly controls the White House – the Democrats, or the CFR?

      Their goal is to divide us and to bankrupt us. This is part of their plan to eliminate US sovereignty and strength, as part of the plan to implement the global Great Reset. The clearly understand what Patrick Henry meant when he said “Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs”. Their strategy is to use classic “Problem > Reaction > Solution” propaganda to push conservatives into a corner, so that the conservatives believe the solution is to separate themselves from the union, in the belief that separation is their only recourse.

      Be warned: Separation is not a solution. It’s a trap.

        Incorrect. They don’t need to “divide us”, we are already divided and have been for decades. The political left is fully on the side of the globalists because they think they are going to get a seat at the table when it’s all over. Most of them won’t, but that doesn’t change the reality that conservatives and leftists CANNOT exist in the same society. What the globalists want desperately is to STOP us from separating from the leftists, which is why every time secession is mentioned they flip out in the media. What they want is for conservatives to stupidly “sit tight” and bang our heads against a wall trying to fix the current US framework, which is BROKEN beyond repair. They want us wasting our energy trying to save America as it was instead of recognizing what it currently is. Now is the time to consolidate conservative and patriot efforts and remove ourselves from places overtaken by leftist useful idiots so that they can’t easily suppress us or easily pick us off one at a time. Separation is the ONLY option if we are to save what’s left of our cultural heritage and ideals of freedom.

    At what point to people say, “Enough!”?

    • Bliss November 19, 2021 at 5:52 am

      The masses? Probably never. Most Germans never did, in the early 40’s.

        Half the country is already awake and fighting back. America is NOT Germany.

    The whole question of Kyle’s guilt should be moot based upon the fact that the peaceful rioters were out there attacking and burning down business and anything in their way. By their behavior, they forfeited all rights to be protected in their acts of violence.

    “””””This is how the Star Chamber begins – When you can be tried over and over again until the establishment gets the outcome they wanted. “”””

    The Star Chamber has been in service now since about 1938. It is highly visible every time a serious crime is met with a hung jury and tried again. Or, more like was attempted here, creating a mistrial to get a do over.

    Seems people would wonder why it takes a unanimous verdict to convict a single criminal, yet a 5-4 decision from the Supreme Court becomes “law off the land” for 330 million people.

    Government is, and always has been, a scam…. The only thing it has ever offered is violence.

      It’s not exactly the same thing. Individual justice vs. Supreme court decisions on government policy is apples to oranges. However, what we definitely have here is the beginnings of the removal of jury oversight of court proceedings. If every single jury is afraid that they will be doxxed by the media or hurt by a leftist mob if they give the wrong verdict in a politically charged trial, then the concept of any fair trial is out the window. We will have to see what happens with the Rittenhouse situation to determine how far down the drain our justice system really is. If he is found guilty despite every piece of substantial evidence that he was merely defending himself, then we know the court system is finally and fully broken. The existence of the jury based legal system is the only thing left keeping us from war.

    The verdict is in: NOT GUILTY. This is excellent news. The communists now know that their threats of intimidation and violence will not necessarily sway jury decisions. They also now know that when they attack a person individually or as a mob, they could suffer justified consequences including death. It would appear the American legal system is not completely broken yet.

    • Scott T. November 19, 2021 at 11:56 am

      Great news indeed! Thanks Brandon.

      Also, Kyle is probably beyond broke, maybe we can send some fiat $ his way.

    • DavidC November 19, 2021 at 12:06 pm

      This is excellent news. Do you think this will also discourage general rioting (e.g., not attacking individual people like Kyle but general looting and burning?) Or, are we going to see Kenosha burn? Either way, are we dealing with emotive, stupid, aggressive leftists, or was the whole thing a failed government operation to weaken conservative morale which, having been proven a failure, won’t be repeated?

    • Greg B November 19, 2021 at 12:27 pm

      A welcome sigh of relief indeed. But now I fear for Kyle’s safety and the well-being of Kenosha. No doubt the leftists are not going to be happy about the verdict and may decide to harm Kyle, his family, his defense team, the jurors and possibly the judge and prosecutor in revenge and instigate more riots and unrest in Kenosha and abroad.

        He needs to relocate to a deep red state. He is certainly welcome in Montana.

        • Greg B November 19, 2021 at 2:26 pm

          He’s welcome down here in Texas as well.

          • Bliss November 20, 2021 at 8:22 am

            Greg B,
            Can you give me a few sentences about Texas, overall?
            Seeing that state as a possibility, moving-wise.

    • Bliss November 20, 2021 at 8:20 am

      Thanks for all of your hard work, Brandon.
