Here Are the Real Reasons Why Another American Civil War Is Possible

You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke!

I would point out, however, that this seemingly boundless drive to forsake all logic and reason in the name of ideology is not due to these people being special in their ambition. Rather, they are following a somewhat successful historic model; the model of communism. And by successful, I mean successfully destructive.

With Donald Trump on the way to the White House in January, along with a Republican majority in Congress and the Senate, leftists long accustomed to dominating the public narrative through the mainstream media have found themselves without leverage. Now, they must resort to ankle biting with efforts like the “fake news” meme, which is designed to undermine the alternative media through ad hominem.  Obviously this will fail.  It is far too late for the mainstream media to gain back any social capital, and they will have to adapt or die out.

With this avenue closing for the left, the next stage will be direct asymmetrics; they will use subversion at a more localized level; working to provoke “marginalized” groups into taking extreme action in order to illicit a negative and totalitarian response from conservatives.

I am rather well versed on the history of communist insurgencies, and one simple reality that consistently stands out to me is that wherever communist movements exist, war follows.  They may claim to be peaceful in their aims and methods, they may claim to want what is best for society as a whole, but when these movements are denied access to social evolution, they almost always revert to violent means.  The primary reason for this, I believe, is that they really do assume at their very core that their ideal is the ONLY ideal.

They think they are heroes, awakened to a world view that the rest of us are incapable of comprehending. In their minds, anyone seeking to obstruct them is either dangerously ignorant or a fascist hellbent on sabotaging humanity’s “natural progression” into the leftist utopia.   Therefore any and all actions are justified on their part.  They are fighting “evil.”  And, of course, conservatives like you and I are the physical manifestations of that evil.  We are the super-villains that must be destroyed at all costs in the leftist fantasy world.

As I noted in my last article, Order Out Of Chaos: The Defeat Of The Left Comes With A Cost, regressives in the form of social justice warriors are currently more cute in their provocations than dangerous, but this is only an early stage of their movement.  When these people do not get what they want, when they realize that propaganda methods are not effective, they will inevitably turn toward militancy and aggressive mob action.  This is the problem with zealots: they are infinitely capable of moral relativity.  They are monsters in people suits just waiting to be unleashed, but made even more dangerous by their self-image as guardians.

There is nothing worse than a psychopath with a desperate desire to nurture you.

After my last article, some readers responded that they understood my basic premise — that the left versus right dynamic is being instigated by global elites, and that this could result in both sides moving to opposing extremes of the political spectrum; communism versus fascism.  That said, they also wanted to know what I thought should be done about the left in particular?  Sure, the elites are the root cause of the threat, but what about all the crazed leftists the elites hide behind and exploit?  Don’t we have to deal with them at some point as well?

I would say yes, though our reaction must be measured or we risk falling into the paradigm trap the elites have constructed for us.

So, here is the reality — when a movement like the social justice cult reverts to zealotry, there is nothing that can be done to persuade them otherwise.  Some will leave the movement behind, but the majority will refuse to acknowledge that their ideology has failed to sway the masses, and that this might be due to the fact that their ideology is highly flawed. They will seek instead to FORCE us into compliance. This ensures that a violent conflict will eventually arise.

The danger is that while conservatives now appear to hold the keys to the behemoth that is government after wrestling it from the left (again, at least in appearance), we will be tempted to swing the cannons of the bureaucratic battleship towards our foes and in our favor.  I’ll have to use the old Lord of the Rings analogy once again here — big government is like the “one ring;” it will always result in evil, no matter who is wearing it.  Good people will take hold of it thinking they can resist abusing it and that they will exploit its incredible power to help others; and they will fall into darkness like everyone else.

The solution?  Conservatives must face leftist extremists on equal ground. We must avoid the temptation of using government as a weapon to extinguish them.  We must avoid stooping to their level.  Otherwise, there is an serious risk that we will falter in our principles and become just as bad if not worse than the regressive left.  And yes, this means a decentralized civil war — a war in which government is denied as a player.  As long as conservatives refuse to wield government as a sword in our arsenal, we will win against all enemies.  The second we wimp out and beg government to aid us in our fight, we will be co-opted and assimilated by the elites.

But what would this conflict look like?

I could see an insurgency versus an insurgency scenario, but this is only if the right refuses to join with government to exact its goals.

In the meantime, I welcome you to look at theories on this from the left side of the spectrum. Check out this article, referencing military “experts” from the ever regressive and dwindling Cracked Magazine titled 6 Reasons Why A New Civil War Is Possible And Terrifying, published at the beginning of November.

While Cracked does briefly address the notion that a civil war could be triggered by the left in the U.S., their article was published before the election, clearly with the assumption that Donald Trump was bound to lose and that “right wing extremists” were the greatest threat to peace and stability in the wake of a Clinton presidency. The majority of their list is composed of scenarios in which “anti-government” right wingers could undermine social cohesion and was no doubt supplemented thoroughly by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

I also want to quickly point out that the No. 2 threat on the Cracked list of civil war threats was the Thermal Evasion Suit I designed!  Or at least, the notion that we have the ability and knowledge to build these kinds of countermeasures.  Here’s a quote from the article:

“But in my lurking on militia sites, I did occasionally run into information that looked like it had its basis in something other than a manual. Take this guide to evading drones published by the Oath Keepers, an anti-government group made up of former military and police veterans.”

[Cracked never actually links to the video, they just show a still photo.  Clearly they did not want people watching it and deciding for themselves what my intent was.]

“I had a former drone operator review the video. He said their “thermal evasion suit” was based on a “decent premise”, although he said it would only work well if the shooter was stationary. It’s impossible to know if the info in this video came from someone with direct (albeit outdated) drone experience. In his time among America’s many militias, Bill said, “…I’ve probably ran into direct training” of groups by military veterans, “…five or six times, in five different states. It’s incredibly prevalent.”

I’m not sure exactly who their “expert” was.  Apparently he thought I was building an invisibility suit because he mentions the problem of “movement,” which no suit I know of can hide. They also state something about “outdated drone experience,” yet don’t actually qualify that with anything of substance. Finally, they insinuate that I somehow received help from military insiders with top-secret knowledge, and this is how I managed to design a thermal evasion system.  In fact, I came up with the design and materials on my own and brought it to Oath Keepers, who aided in the testing phase.  Not one drone expert was on hand to feed me design information.

The point is, these people have no idea what they are talking about. Cracked never contacted me about the suit even though my face and email address are all over the video. It was not “impossible to know” if I received insider information; all they had to do was ask.  The left in their zealotry likes to jump to conclusions. They also assume we are a bunch of dumb hillbillies, when we are in fact much smarter and more innovative than they are.

While Cracked and their so-called “experts” are hopelessly naive in many respects, they do make a few solid observations.

First, they present the issue of lack of trust in government and police forces on the part of the public. They seem to suggest this is a bad thing by claiming that distrust of government leads to insurgency.  I would say distrust of government is the healthiest state a society can exist in.

That said, I would remind readers that conservatives will take over the helm of the government ship as of 2017.  And, as I warned when I predicted a Trump election win back in June, the elites have allowed us into authority at a time when trust in government is at historic lows.  We have been handed the reigns of power, but I say this is not a cure, but a curse. We will no longer be considered freedom fighters.  We will be considered the jackboot stomping on the face of America.

Second, Cracked brings up the problem of infrastructure interference, such as highway bombings and other methods of breaking down travel and supply routes.  They mention this based on the premise that we right wingers might set up IEDs using tannerite to terrorize road networks.

We’ve already seen something like this, but not from the right wing.  Leftists are notorious lately for building human walls across major roads in order to shut down movement.  I would suggest that they will do this with more frequency (and with more violence) once winter winds down (leftists can’t stand the cold, which is why most of them live near beaches). Communists like to disrupt supply chains and production; they know this is the quickest path to instigating mass panic.

Third, the Cracked article argues that right wingers might adopt the methods of ISIS in our bid for supremacy, which is extraordinarily absurd if you know anything at all about conservatives.

It is actually the left that has shown time and time again their affinity for Muslim extremism.  They defend it openly and publicly. You would think all the social justice feminists and gay rights groups would view the Muslim world as a carnival of horrors being that in almost any Muslim controlled nation on the planet they would be enslaved, stoned to death or thrown off a tall building. But no, instead, SJWs champion mass Muslim immigration without question.

Understand that forced Muslim immigration standards in Europe and in the U.S. are a product of global elitism under the Cloward Piven strategy.  The elites like to use incompatible cultures as a tool to destabilize target societies.  But, leftists are also more than happy to go along with this program.  I believe it is because the left is inherently weak when it comes to direct confrontation, and many progressives secretly enjoy the idea of having their own hitmen (Muslim extremists or Black Lives Matter) on speed dial just in case.

If any group has shown a willingness to work with the likes of ISIS, it is the left. Set aside the fact that the Department of Defense under Obama admits in its own white papers supporting the rise of the Muslim terrorist network.

Finally, Cracked and their experts suggest the idea that a second American civil war will not be two-sided, but multi-sided.  This is the only intelligent notion in the entire article and I agree with it wholeheartedly.

Here is the problem — multiple groups on the left and the right have entirely different concepts on what the final American product should look like.  Some on the left are anarchists, some are communists, some just want the continuation of the democratic process (but still think Trump should be supplanted). On the right, there are hardcore neo-cons and war hawks that want to nuke the Middle East into oblivion, women and children included.  There are libertarians that just want a return to small government and constitutionalism.  There are anarcho-capitalists that seem to want the erasure of government and the constitution entirely but live in a world of theory rather than practicality (I call them egghead libertarians).  There are even Christian factions that long for a Christian-based theocracy.

Then, there are people like me, who just want to get to the root of the problem and hang the globalists from lampposts (after a speedy trial of course).  We don’t necessarily have a beef with any other group as long as they stay out of our way.  We would like to circumvent the danger of a civil war altogether if possible.

Unfortunately, I think Cracked and their experts are right on this, and that a second American civil war will be multifaceted.  And, while we are all at each others throats, the elites will be lounging on the riviera sipping mojitos and laughing.  The most dangerous faction (besides the elites) will be the catalyzing faction; the regressive left.  They will be the group that initiates all other hostilities.

What leftists do not know is that they have always been useful idiots for the global elites, and, they will be thrown in the garbage once the elites are finished with them.  I hope that every leftist could watch the following interview with Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov, in which he examines the process by which free nations are brought to chaos by the elites through the exploitation of the regressive left in order to establish a totalitarian system.

I leave you with this thought — civil war is unavoidable. The left is too crazy, and the right has now been given the weapon of government too enticing to overlook. Consider for a moment which “faction” in the world benefits most from this arrangement and then you will understand that the left is ultimately a distraction from the greater enemy. Remove the globalists from the picture, and the left will sort itself out.

      Agreed. A bad jumble of opinion masquerading as fact, outdated left/right paradigm definitions, assuming the reader shares his ideology en toto, and ego self-stroking. The tangent citing then attacking “Cracked” magazine was a doozie. Also the statement, “it is actually the left that has shown time and time again their affinity for Muslim extremism.” I guess Reagan should be considered a “leftist” for aligning with the prescursor to Al CiaDuh and the Taliban against the Soviets in the 80s and referring to them at the time as the “moral equivalent of the founding fathers.”

    A point of order. USA has not had a civil war. Dictionaries define a civil ware as when two or more faction try to take over a government. 1861-1865 war was not by that definition a civil war. The Southern States just got tired of dealing with thieving, murdering, un-honabale religious fanatic Puritan Yankees. So they said, you have the government in DC, we do not want it. They then legally formed their own government. The yankees came down like the criminals they were in a war of invasion, aggression, pedophilia, bestiality, arson, gang rapes, murder, and occupation. They never ceased their occupation. I think you will find that most Southern people still want nothing to do with Washington or their crimes. If the yankees want to kill each other to see who gets to steal the most, they have my blessings, but can they keep their degenerate BS in their own area for a change?

    • Gil G

      Nope that’s not part of the definition hence it was a civil war.

      • Mike

          Two factions fighting within a country is a civil war. It doesn’t matter if either were separatists.

          • Paul Robinson

            No you are wrong. A Civil War is always 2 or more factions fighting for the control of the government of a country. A Revolution would be a complete overthrow of a government. Hence the American War for Independence was not a Revolution, the French Revolution was. The American Civil War was a War for Southern Independence they were defeated by the United States government. The South never intended to dominate or control the entire United States, they just wanted Independence, therefore not a Civil War. In fact if the South was intent on taking control they could have pressed their early advantages especially after 1st Bull Run.

      • John C Carleton

        What is not part of what definition? Throwing feces at the people outside your cage is not self explanatory. Care to embellish?

    • Yahu Savant

      The main reason for the Confederacy’s failed War for Independence was the fact that the Federal Government got 2/3rd of its revenue from the South and spend 3/4s of that revenue in the North. Hollywood not-withstanding, the slavery issue had been solved (to the satisfaction of most people North AND South) with the Missouri Compromise and was NOT an issue until 1863. Only then, Lincoln used it as an issue to keep Great Britain and France from recognizing the Confederate States of America as an independent country (Great Britain and France had freed their slaves in the 1830’s). Delaware, Maryland, Missouri, and Kentucky were all NORTHERN SLAVE STATES!

      • John C Carleton

        I recently acquired a two volume book set, Northern Editorials on secession, 1860-1861, compiled by the American Historical Society, finished 1942, but printed in 1964. They are not talking about slavery, they are talking about the Southern Sovereign States, stealing the Federal “governments property”, by exerting their sovereignty and telling the north to whiz off. In other words, you had a bunch of criminals who pooped on the documented sovereignty of the State over the Federal “government”. I do not know what else to call them but war criminals. War criminals and Washington DC seems to be synonymic throughout the history of the USA.

    Now expose the government targeting innocent citizens with military weapons to isolate them, ruin their lives and then try to have them act out criminally. They are using mind control and directed energy weapons (V2K, remote neural monitoring, microwaving, scalar, sound) and gang stalking on innocent citizens. These technologies can’t be seen or traced and the victims are left with little recourse since the attacks can’t be proven. The victims may appear to have mental issues, however it is the technology that is violating their minds and bodies causing voices, hallucinations, time lapses, and multiple other violations. Psychiatry is a hoax, these technologies cause many mental issues.,,,, Jesse Ventura’s Brain Invaders youtube,, John Hall’s book Guinea Pigs, Renee Pittman’s (Anne Frank of our times) books and countless victims are trying to expose the truth. The media, politicians, and psychiatry all cover for this and are complicit for this torture taking place for decades remotely in every city. These psychopaths in government need to be exposed and the true terrorists are in government agencies remotely targeting individuals with military technology.

    These technologies violate the minds and bodies of the afflicted persons and are the most egregious violation of human rights perpetrated by the government with your tax dollars. Taxpayers should be demanding their government quit paying for these crimes against humanity on law abiding citizens. No wonder we are broke. Why pay perps sitting at computers screwing with people in their beds and living rooms, these treasonous criminals and agencies need to be exposed and jailed. EXPOSE AND END THE TORTURE AND HOLOCAUST NOW

    America is a Plutocracy. And now you have a billionaire ruling you. He recently called Castro a vicious dictator. Castro and the Bearded Ones ousted the American supported dictator Batista, organized universal health care and education, improved literacy all under a brutal American embargo. Of course the Media is going to demonize Castro and the Bearded Ones. They are the mouth piece of the Plutocracy. The only socialism in America right now is enjoyed by Wall Street and Bank bailouts.

    What we had in 1861 was not a civil war it was an illegal war against the states. Wars are not fought for the citizens they are fought by the citizens. Criminal payoffs and conspiracies just like today are what made the war 1861. Nothing has changed, nothing can change as long as the Law is not applicable to every person in the USA including the Politicians and the President especially. Meaning, as long as the Lawyers and Politicians are above the Law, make the Law, the USA is a criminals playground and we the citizens suffer it all. Cleaning house could be fun, would be fun, so let’s do it. It won’t be civil war though and it won’t be like it was in 1861 it will be what it is: a citizens revolt against the Leadership, a war against the Bankers and their paid off Politicians. This could be the last war, but, as long as the Politicians and their paymasters the International Bankers are left to run things people will always be at war with each other. Every problem people have is the result of the decisions of the politicians and the world bankers who own them. People are naturally law abiding however when the laws are misleading and unequal, when the laws are intended to confuse and alienate people from each other then we have these wars and murder like today. It is not the people who are at war with the system (yet) nor is it a war of the people against themselves, it is a war of the people for the Bankers and by their enforcers the Politicians, a war AGAINST THE PEOPLE.

    Ultimately the answer is to eliminate ALL liberals at any cost. They are evil and as clearly noted by Dr. Michael Savage; liberals are all mentally ill…. ALL OF THEM. Do away with all liberals and 99.9% of all problems and issues will quickly resolve.

      except for the problem of the bible thumping crony capitalism loving “conservatives”.

      • Larry

        Thank you for proving how incredibly stupid and completely dishonest you are. Nobody has more blood and dirt on their hands with respect to crony capitalism than liberals. Liberals are also chronic profound liars. In fact, liberals are just SHIT; plain and simple. There is no better example than the jigaboo in the White House, whom all of you worthless liberals fall all over yourselves to worship. You will recall that both he and his transgender wife were booted off the Illinois State Bar having their law licenses taken away. To have this happen in Illinois of all places, you have to be a special kind of worthless, low-life, dirt-bags! Another great example is former House Speaker Nancy (can I get more cosmetic surgery) Pelosi. In a purely self-serving, crony capitalism move, she slipped an add-on to a bill a number of years ago, so that the federal minimum wage did not apply to agricultural workers in American Samoa, where her family own numerous acres of sugar plantation land: So while all of you worthless, not fit to live liberals sit around flapping your stupid pie-holes about things you prove continuously to know nothing about, the rest of us keep doing our best to build and make this nation great. It would be a whole hell of a lot easier, if all liberals would just up and die. That would save us having to kill you! Merry Christmas….. ASSHOLE !

  • Hi Plains Drifter

    “The left will sort itself out” how do you envision them doing that? I haven’t read of this happening anywhere in the world. Mostly the ruling class seams incapable of stopping the left, with dire consequences to themselves and their country.
