Ronald Radosh Condemns Trump Followers

In an Article in the Daily Beast Ronald Radosh Condemns Trump Followers

http://www.thedailybeast.com/mccarthyism-is-wildly-overusedbut-this-higgins-memo-is-the-real-deal

Ronald Radosh describes himself as a conservative.  Many non-conservatives do this for various reasons.  He continues to disparage Joseph McCarthy.  He’s a big fan of Dean (“I will not turn my back on Alger Hiss”) Acheson.  He attacked Diana West for her revelations about Communists in the Roosevelt administration.  Radosh seems to doubt the leftist/muslim alliance.  He wonders, “how do establishment Republicans . . . come to act under the sway of Mao and Herbert Marcuse?”  Establishment Republicans want to be loved.  If embracing Mao makes them loved, so be it.  Some examples: John McCain claimed, “There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate&bigotry.  The President of the United States should say so.”  Mitt Romney tweeted, “No, not the same.  One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi.  The other opposes racism and bigotry.  Morally different universes.”  Lindsey Graham stated,  “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like [Heather] Heyer.”  Trump specifically referred to Heather Heyer during his press conference, “I hear she was a fine -- really, actually, an incredible young woman.”

Radosh condemns Richard Higgins’ “conspiracy” theory and has Gabriel Schoenfeld describe him as a “crank.”  Higgins is therefore not a good analyst.  I suppose Philip Mudd is.  Mudd announced on TV that, Government is gonna kill this guy.”  There are thousands of people in the intel community with a Mudd mindset.

The Left will be victorious.  They have captured the commanding heights of our society, but patriots will not go down without a fight.
President Trump may be doomed.  The forces against him are formidable.  They include (according to Higgins and any objective observer) “the Mainstream Media, the Academy, the Deep State created by cultural Marxism, global corporatists and bankers, the Democrats who protect “cultural Marxist programs of action.”



I ran across this example of media bias:



The Media and the Snowflakes


The recent controversy surrounding the events in Charlottesville illustrate a problem the media is having with President Trump.  Supporters of the President will remain with him under almost any circumstance.  His opponents will oppose him regardless of what he says. If he says “good morning” they will manage to find some nefarious motive in his statement.  There are a large number of people in the middle who can be swayed either way.  If they get their information exclusively from the establishment media they will tend to be critical of the President.  The establishment media is almost universally opposed to Trump.  The problem for the media is that an increasing number of people are getting their information from the internet. The internet contains a wide spectrum of information.  Much of it is nonsense.  However, it also contains 100% accurate information.  If people want to know what the President said during his press conference they can read the transcript.  Fair minded people can determine for themselves if the President’s remarks have been distorted.  

Much of the criticism of the President revolved around his condemnation of both sides in the violence in Charlottesville.  Trump was asked, “Is the alt-left as bad as white supremacy?”  He responded, “you had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent.”  He continued, “you had a group on the other side that came charging in, without a permit, and they were very, very violent.”  This position is inexcusable.  The progressive narrative is that the Antifa are against hate and are therefore the good guys.  This narrative has been accepted by Trump’s Republican opponents.  John McCain claimed, “There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate&bigotry.  The President of the United States should say so.”  Mitt Romney tweeted, “No, not the same.  One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi.  The other opposes racism and bigotry.  Morally different universes.”  Lindsey Graham stated,  “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like [Heather] Heyer.” 

Are the organizations attacking the alt-right respectable groups worthy of support by Republican senators?  Protesters frequently wear masks to conceal their identity.  They often use symbols of Che Guevara and Mao Zedong as fashion statements. They frequently carry flags from an ideology responsible for the deaths of perhaps 100 million people.  They routinely riot at G20 summits, causing extensive property damage.  Perhaps the two groups are not morally equivalent.  It may be that the “Antifa” are more destructive than the alt-right groups.

Donald Trump has repeatedly condemned the alt-right groups during his press conferences: “I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. Neo-Nazis and the white nationalists . . . should be condemned totally.  It looked like they had some rough, bad people -- neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them.”  The President mentioned those who attended the protest who were not extremists but attended because they opposed the removal of historic monuments.  He remarked, “you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”  Is this sentence unclear?  He states, “other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists.”  Yet a reporter immediately asks, “Sir, I just didn’t understand what you were saying. You were saying the press has treated white nationalists unfairly? I just don’t understand what you were saying.”  This question is an indication of a lack of understanding on the part of the press.  Even more incomprehensible was Lindsey Graham’s comment that the President equated the neo-Nazis with Heather Heyer, the woman who was killed during the protest.  Trump specifically said, “I hear she was a fine -- really, actually, an incredible young woman.”

The other inexcusable statement by the President was his claim that “You’re changing history. You’re changing culture.”  He said, “So this week it's Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is it George Washington next week? And is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop?”  When it was pointed out that, “George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same,” he responded that they were both slave owners.  The reporter’s claim that Lee and Washington were not the same implied that after Lee the protests would end.  However there have been news reports that there are calls for the removal of both Washington and Jefferson monuments. 


If all the demands of the Antifa were granted and every last vestige of the Confederacy was remove, would they all return to their homes and resume their peaceful lives?  Everyone knows they would create a new list of demands.  Confederate monuments are just a tool they are using to assert their power.  Republican politicians are using them to attack the President.  They are either extremely cynical or incredibly ignorant.  Conservatives need to emphasize the moral depravity of Antifa and questions those politicians’ motives.

Are Far Left and Far Right Equivalent?





President Trump has committed the unpardonable sin of implying that the far left is as violent as the far right.  This can be a career ender.   New York Times Domestic Affairs Correspondent, Sheryl Gay Stolberg, may have learned this the hard way.  She commented, “The hard left seemed as hate-filled as alt-right. I saw club-wielding ‘antifa’ beating white nationalists being led out of the park.”   She was immediately set upon.  She had contradicted the progressive narrative.  Perhaps she can be forgiven because her comments were made early in the dispute.  The progressive narrative is that this was a demonstration by white supremacists, neo-Nazis and KKK protesting the removal of statues of slaveholders.  They were opposed by “civil rights protestors:” defenders of the American Way.  In Sheryl Gay Stolberg revised comments the protestors were “standing up to hate.”


Even Mitt Romney endorsed the progressive fairy tale, tweeting, "No, not the same. One side is racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes."  Former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted simply: "There is only one side. #charlottesville."  This narrative has been repeated endlessly.  All demonstrators were hate advocates.  There was nobody demonstrating against the removal of monuments dedicated to their forebears or people aware of the left’s true agenda.  Perhaps they should have known that an event organized by Richard Spencer, a known white supremacist, would not be a tea party.

The President’s original statement was, "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides.”  This allowed critics to suggest he was drawing a moral equivalency between the right and the left.  After massive criticism he appeared to have capitulated.  On Monday he condemned the attack and specifically mentioned the KKK, Neo-Nazis and white supremacists.  Unsurprisingly this did not satisfy his critics.  On Tuesday he appeared to revert to his original position with a vengeance.  He asked reporters, “When you say alt-right, define alt-right for me—what about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?”
Trump claimed, “Not all of those people were neo-Nazis.” 

He then touched on a problem few conservative commentators have mentioned.  The entire progressive exercise is based on one goal: the acquisition of power.  He continued, “Many of those people were there to protest the taking down the statue of Robert E. Lee.  So this week its Robert E Lee I notice the Stonewall Jackson is coming down.   I wonder is it George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after.  You really do have to ask yourself where does it stop.”  Al Sharpton has already targeted  Thomas Jefferson.

There is not a moral equivalency between left and right.  The left has repeatedly demonstrated that they are more violent than the Right.  The left is held to an entirely different standard.  Black Lives Matter (“Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon) can be invited to the White House by President Obama.  President Trump can not even criticize them.  Mayors often tell their police forces to “stand down.”  They give protestors  “who wished to destroy space to do that as well.”  Conservative demonstrations do no usually end with burned out liquor stores.  Leftist speakers do not fear being assaulted when the visit a college campus.  The left controls the establishment media.  It can therefore suppress or emphasize information that it believes will further its cause.  Che Guevara, Mao, Joseph Stalin and Pol Potdo not receive the attention they deserve.

President Trump’s exchange with the press at Trump Tower did not reflect well on the press.  The question, “Are you against the Confederacy?” was entirely ignored.  After condemning white supremacists several times a reported asked, “I didn’t understand what you were saying. You were saying the press has treated white nationalists unfairly.”  Reporters hear what they want to hear.  If they are incapable of listening they cannot report accurately.

Government’s Gonna Kill This Guy

CNN counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd is retired from a long career in American intelligence.  He was in the upper echelons of the intelligence community and was a member of the White House National Security Council.  He was appointed by FBI Director Robert Mueller to be the first deputy director of the FBI's National Security Branch in 2005.  He was awarded the William Langer Award for excellence in analysis and several Exceptional Performance Awards.  He resigned from government service in 2010 and is presently the President of Mudd Management, a company specializing in security consulting.

There is nothing exceptional about Mudd’s career except for the fact that he was a high performer.  He obviously was a good fit for the intelligence community.  His specialty is analysis.  It is therefore strange that he could demonstrate such a lack of judgment when discussing the policies of the President of the United States.  On August 11 during the CNN program The Lead with Jake Tapper there was a discussion about Trump’s comments about the Russian expulsion of U.S. diplomats.  Mudd responded to the question “what was your response Phil Mudd?” with “As a former government official.  Government’s gonna kill this guy.”

Tapper had to interrupt to make sure Mudd was speaking metaphorically.  Mudd responded “obviously.”  It is unfortunate that members of the entertainment community can “joke” about the President’s severed head.  We should expect a great deal more from our intelligence professionals.  This is more than an example of poor judgment.  Rudd mentions the “deep state.”   Referring to this entity as the “deep state” gives it an air of nefarious mystery.  There is nothing mysterious about the “deep state.”  It is the enormous bureaucracy that has been built up over the years.  It has a mind of its own and is remarkably resistant to the interference of elected officials.  Philip Mudd is an excellent example of a member of that bureaucracy.

Trump is a threat to this “deep state.”  He will attempt to rein it in.  However, funding for government programs has not been seriously reduced.  Congress (Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell) is still funding wasteful programs and leftist organizations.  Republican leadership claims it cannot make progress because that is how government works.  Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid never used that excuse.

While Mudd spoke approvingly of the government “killing this guy,” Richard Higgins, former NSC Director for Strategic Planning, wrote a memo describing the process the “deep state” is using to remove the President.  Higgins paid for his memo with his job. In his seven-page memo he warns of a concerted information warfare campaign designed to remove the President.  His memo states, “The Trump administration is suffering under withering information campaigns designed to first undermine, then delegitimize and ultimately remove the president.”  “For this cabal, Trump must be destroyed.”  Were something happen to the President, Mudd’s irresponsible remarks will come back to haunt him.

A Brain is a Terrible Thing to Wash


Published by American Thinker on Aug 14, 2017

Nazi propagandist Joe Goebbels reportedly said, “A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”  Everyone knows that the Russians interfered in the U.S. election.  When it is discussed on TV it is mentioned without qualification.  It is a known and accepted fact.  It is on a par with saying the earth is round.  However, ask for evidence.  There is none.  There is a dossier.  This dossier was so poorly created that even Vice President Joe Biden believed it was bogus.  If you can’t fool Joe Biden you can’t fool anybody.  After months of investigation by thousands of researchers eager to make a name for themselves the result is zero.  However, this does not prevent the assertion from being a “truth.”

Goebbels had undoubtedly read Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays, book on propaganda.  Bernays contended that, “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.  Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed , our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of."

The power of the media cannot be overestimated.  An early example of the media’s power was provided by publisher William Randolph Hearst.  Hearst sent the artist Frederic Remington to Cuba in 1897 to cover the insurrection against Spain.  Remington cabled Hearst, “Everything quiet.  There is no trouble here.  There will be no war.  Wish to return.”  Hearst responded, “Please remain.  You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war.”  A short time later the U.S. was involved in the Spanish-American War.

Perhaps the most dramatic illustration of the effects of propaganda is American attitudes towards all things sexual.  Bernays wrote," We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of."  In this case we have the names of the architects of a considerable part of this transformation. Around 1985 social activists Marshall Kirk and Dr. Hunter Madsen began developing a plan to make homosexuality acceptable.  They wrote an article entitled The Gay Agenda outlining their strategy to make homosexuality appear narmal.  They have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.  In many locations they have made homosexuality fashionable.

When the elite is preparing the public for war the suffering of children is widely publicized.  Following the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq Nayirah al-Sabah testified before Congress that she witnessed Iraqi soldiers taking babies out of incubators leaving them to die.  It was later revealed that she was the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States and was unlikely present in Kuwait at the time.  Her testimony was couched by PR firm and “inflamed American public opinion against the Iraqis.”

European attitudes about the flood of migrants reaching their shores have been influenced by photos of Aylan Kurdi, a Syrian toddler whose body was washed up on a beach in Turkey.  A British paper asserted, "If these extraordinarily powerful images of a dead Syrian child washed up on a beach don't change Europe's attitude to refugees, what will?"  The tragic death of this child was used to encourage the entry of thousands of migrants that were far from innocent.   

In the Syrian conflict Omran Daqneesh is the child star.  His village was allegedly bombed by pro-Assad forces.  “Activists and aid workers hoped the story would boost international support to help bring an end to the suffering and fighting in Syria.”  Instead of immediately tending to his wounds, Omran was positioned in an ambulance chair for a photo op.  “Television news anchors fought back tears as they broadcast the video.”  This was a direct appeal to peoples’ emotions.  The implied solution to bring about an end to the suffering in Syria is to overthrow the Assad regime.  This would be followed by a chaotic situation similar to the situation in Libya.


Economist Stuart Chase suggested, “Theoretically a society could be completely made over in something like 15 years, the time it takes to inculcate a new culture into a rising crop of youngsters.”  He warned, “Prepare now for a surprising universe.”  Baby boomers have witnessed four of these 15 year periods.  The transition has been extremely gradual and therefore difficult for some to recognize.  However, for those paying attention the transition has been truly surprising.

POTUS & POLITICAL WARFARE
May 2017

BACKGROUND.  The Trump administration is suffering under withering information campaigns designed to first undermine, then de legitimize and ultimately remove the President. Possibly confusing these attacks with an elevated interplay of otherwise normal D.C. partisan infighting and adversarial media relations, the White House response to these campaigns reflects a political advocacy mindset that it is intensely reactive, severely under-inclusive and dangerously inadequate to the threat. If action is not taken to re-scope and respond to these hostile campaigns very soon, the administration risks implosion and subsequent early departure from the White House.
This is not politics as usual but rather political warfare at an unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a seated president through manipulation of the news cycle. It must be recognized on its own terms so that immediate action can be taken. At its core, these campaigns run on multiple lines of effort, serve as the non-violent line of effort of a wider movement, and execute political warfare agendas that reflect cultural Marxist outcomes. The campaigns operate through narratives. Because the hard left is aligned with lslamist organizations at local (ANTI FA working with Muslim Brotherhood doing business as MSA and CAIR), national (ACLU and BLM working with CAIR and MPAC) and international levels (OIC working with OSCEand the UN), recognition must given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate at the narrative level as well. In candidate Trump, the opposition saw a threat to the "politically correct" enforcement narratives they've meticulously laid in over the past few decades. In President Trump, they see a latent threat to continue that effort to ruinous effect and their retaliatory response reflects this fear.

INTRODUCTION. Responding to relentless personal assaults on his character, candidate Trump identified the players and the strategy:

"The establishment and their media enablers will control over this nation through means that are very well known. Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed." - President Trump, Oct 2016

Culturally conditioned to limit responses to such attacks as yet another round in the on-going drone from diversity and multicultural malcontents, these broadsides are discounted as political correctness run amuck. However, political correctness is a weapon against reason and critical thinking. This weapon functions as the enforcement mechanism of diversity narratives that seek to implement cultural

Marxism. Candidate Trump's rhetoric in the campaign not only cut through the Marxist narrative, he did so in ways that were viscerally comprehensible to a voting bloc that then made candidate Trump the president; making that bloc self-aware in the process. President Trump is either the candidate he ran as, or he is nothing.

Recognizing in candidate Trump an existential threat to cultural Marxist memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative, those that benefit recognize the threat he poses and seek his destruction. For this cabal, Trump must be destroyed. Far from politics as usual, this is a political warfare effort that seeks the destruction of a sitting president. Since Trump took office, the situation has intensified to crisis level proportions. For those engaged in the effort, especially those from within the "deep state" or  permanent government apparatus, this raises clear Title 18 (legal) concerns.

•DISCUSSION.

The Opposition. While opposition to President Trump manifests itself through political warfare memes centered on cultural Marxist narratives, this hardly means that opposition is limited to Marxists as conventionally understood. Having become the dominant cultural meme, some benefit from it while others are captured by it; including "deep state" actors, globalists, bankers, lslamists, and establishment Republicans. Through the campaign, candidate Trump tapped into a deep vein of concern among many citizens that America is at risk and is slipping away. Globalists and lslamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed. Atomization of society must also occur at the individual level; with attacks directed against all levels of group and personal identity. Hence the sexism, racism and xenophobia memes. As a Judea-Christian culture, forced inclusion of post-modern notions of tolerance is designed to induce nihilistic contradictions that reduce all thought, all faith, all loyalties to meaninglessness. Group rights based on sex or ethnicity are a direct assault on the very idea of individual human rights and natural law around which the Constitution was framed. "Transgender acceptance" memes attack at the most basic level by denying a person the right to declare the biological fact of one's sex. When a population has 2 + 2 = 5 imposed on it, there are many that benefit:

•         Mainstream Media -The principle mechanism for implementing narratives.

•         The Academy - Academia has served as a principle counter-state node for some time and remains a key conduit for creating future adherents to cultural Marxist narratives and their derivative worldview.

•         The Deep State - The successful outcome of cultural Marxism is a bureaucratic state beholden to no one, certainly not the American people. With no rule of law considerations outside those that further deep state power, the deep state truly becomes, as Hegel advocated, god bestriding the earth.

•         Global Corporatists & Bankers - Exploitation of populations, unfettered by national protections and notions of personal morality and piety.

•         Democratic Leadership - The democratic leadership has been a counter-state enabler that executes, sustains, and protects cultural Marxist programs of action and facilitates the relentless expansion of the deep state.

•         Republican Leadership - More afraid of being accused of being called a racist, sexist, homophobe or lslamophobe than of failing to enforce their oaths to "support and defend the Constitution," the Republican Establishment accepts and enforces cultural Marxist memes within its own sphere of operations. In doing so, knowingly or not, it becomes an agent of that. These "conservatives" become increasingly indistinguishable from their democratic counterparts save that they misrepresent themselves to their constituents. Lacking the discernment to recognize their situation, they will work with globalists, corporatists, and the international financial interests and will likewise service the deep state. These establishment Republicans are the hard left's designated defeat mechanism in the destruction of the old regime as well as the American ideal. 1 Because candidate Trump publicly exposed them for their duplicitous activities, they are at risk as long as Trump can turn on them and are, therefore, bitter foes. Candidate Trump's success remains an ongoing existential threat to establishment Republicans.

•         lslamists - Islamists ally with cultural Marxist because, as far back as the 1980s, they properly assessed that the hard left has a strong chance of reducing Western civilization to its benefit. Having co-opted post-modern narratives as critical points, Islamists deploy these narratives to strategically blind and then control US decision makers. This is by design and purposeful. "By their own hands!" has been the declared strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood since 1991. This strategy seeks to divide American society against itself with the forced imposition of Islamist objectives on one half of American society by the other half. Once a society has been effectively atomized, the population will have lost its faith in the old order, detest those who reduced it, and divide along the lines of narrative adherence. This is the intended outcome of hostile information cum political warfare campaigns and today we see their effects on American society.

Complicating the current situation, many close to the president have pushed him off his message when he was candidate Trump thus alienating him from his base thereby isolating him in the process.  When President Trump is not candidate Trump, he becomes dangerously exposed. While the base that elected candidate Trump identified with his vision, they are only Trump's insofar as he holds to the vision that made him president.

Political Warfare Attacks -A Primer. As used here, "political warfare" does not concern activities associated with the American political process but rather exclusively refers to political warfare as understood by the Maoist Insurgency model2. Political warfare is one of the five components of a Maoist insurgency. Maoist methodologies employ synchronized violent and non-violent actions that focus on mobilization of individuals and groups to action. This approach envisions the direct use of non-violent operational arts and tactics as elements of combat power. In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power. Functioning as a hostile competing state acting within an existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure. Political warfare operates as one of the activities of the "counter-state" and is primarily focused on the resourcing and mobilization of the counter state or the exhaustion and demobilization of the targeted political movement. Political warfare methods can be implemented at strategic, operational, or tactical levels of operation.

Political warfare is warfare. Strategic information campaigns designed to delegitimize through disinformation arise out of non-violent lines of effort in political warfare regimes. They principally operate through narratives. Because the left is aligned with lslamist organizations at local, national and international levels, recognition should be given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized interactive narratives.

Cultural Marxism - A Primer. While the attacks on President Trump arise out of political warfare considerations based on non-kinetic lines of effort (as discussed below), they operate in a battle-space prepared, informed and conditioned by cultural Marxist drivers. In practical terms, the political warfare assault on President Trump cannot be separated from the cultural Marxist narratives that drive them. From an operational preparation of the environment perspective, President Trump is operating in a battle-space that reflects the left's vision.

2 This discussion relies on Thomas A. Marks' treatment of the Maoist model as discussed in Maoist People's War in Post-Vietnam Asia (Bangkok, Thailand: White Lotus Press, 2007), 1-14. Hereafter "Thomas A. Marks, Maoist People's War."

As used in this discussion, cultural Marxism relates to programs and activities that arise out of Gramsci Marxism, Fabian Socialism and most directly from the Frankfurt School. The Frankfurt strategy deconstructs societies through attacks on culture by imposing a dialectic that forces unresolvable contradictions under the rubric of critical theory. The result is induced nihilism, a belief in everything that is actually the belief in nothing.

That post-modern (diversity/multiculturalism) narratives seeks to implement cultural Marxist objectives can be demonstrated by reference to founding Frankfurt School theorist Herbert Marcuse's repurposing of the term tolerance. In a 1965 ~ Marcuse defined tolerance as intolerance; said it can be implemented through undemocratic means to stop chauvinism (xenophobia), racism, discrimination; and should be extended to the left while denied to the right:

•  "The realization of the objective of tolerance would call for intolerance toward prevailing policies, attitudes, opinions, and the extension of tolerance to policies, attitudes, and opinions which are outlawed or suppressed."

•  "Surely, no government can be expected to foster its own subversion, but in a democracy such a right is vested in the people (i.e. in the majority of the people). This means that the ways should not be blocked on which a subversive majority could develop, and if they are blocked by organized repression and indoctrination, their reopening may require apparently undemocratic means. They would include the withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and religion, or which oppose the extension of public services, social security, medical care, etc." (8-9)

• "Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left. As to the scope of this tolerance and intolerance: ... it would extend to the stage of action as well as of discussion and propaganda, of deed as well as of word." (12)

It is through such post-modern constructs that interoperable narratives are established among various left-wing groups as well as between them and Islamist groups at all levels. For example, from the 2001 Conference of Foreign Ministers at Bamako, Mali, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) declared its commitment to fight racism and xenophobia and then declared lslamophobia a "contemporary form of racism":

• In this context, the World Conference urges all states ... take all necessary measures to combat hatred, discrimination, intolerance and acts of violence, intimidation and coercion motivated by racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance particularly against Islam

• Racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance which display an increasing trend, in their most subtle and contemporary forms, constitute a violation of human rights. 3. Contemporary forms of racism are based on discrimination and disparagement on a cultural, rather than biological basis. In this content, the increasing trend of lslamophobia, as a distinct form of xenophobia in non-Muslim societies is very alarming.

That the OIC made these claims as part of its planned inputs to the United Nation's "Third World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance" further demonstrates the coordinated and interoperable nature of these narratives at international levels in international forums.

As cultural Marxist narratives intensify, they are to be further operationalized in the form of hate speech narratives. Hate speech narratives are non-random, coordinated, and fully interoperable escalations of cultural Marxist memes. Key international players include the European Union, the UN, and the OSCE, the OIC and the International Muslim Brotherhood. Hate speech memes are structured, coordinated, and implemented through these same international forums. They involve close coordination with media and social media and include the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) narratives. David Shipler's book Freedom of Speech provides a road map for how hate speech narratives are to be structured, deployed and enforced.

Battlespace. These attack narratives are pervasive, full spectrum and institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media, and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies and within the foreign policy establishment. They inform the entertainment industry from late night monologues, to situation comedies, to television series memes, to movie themes. The effort required to direct this capacity at President Trump is little more than a programming decision to do so. The cultural Marxist narrative is fully deployed, pervasive, full spectrum and ongoing. Regarding the president, attacks have become a relentless 24/7 effort.

While there is certainly a Marxist agenda and even lslamist motivations that must be seriously addressed in their own right, these motivations alone seem inadequate to explain the scope and magnitude of the effort directed against the president. The economic drivers behind the Marxist and Islamist ideologues are enormously influential and seek to leverage these ideological movements for their own self interests. While beyond the actual scope of this document, the benefactors of these political movements include; Urban Real Estate who depend greatly on immigrant tenants, International Banking who seeks to maintain US debtor status so as to control the application of American power, and elements of the business sector that depend upon immigrant labor or government infrastructure. The overall objective of these economic forces is the forced urbanization of the populace, thereby necessitating a larger, more powerful government. In summary, this is a form of population control by certain business cartels in league with cultural Marxists/corporatists/lslamists who will leverage Islamic terrorism threats to justify the creation of a police state.

Adversary Campaign Plan. Political Warfare has been described as "propaganda in battledress."3 The effort directed at President Trump is executed along one overt, as well as two covert, lines of effort:

•  The overt line of effort is PUBLICITY. Publicity is the straightforward projection of a case that builds a picture in the audience's mind designed to garner support. It is facts without context and information the adversary wants the audience to possess that creates an impression and sets conditions. It seeks to establish good will and receptiveness to additional inputs.

•   There are two covert lines of effort: PROPOGANDA and INFILTRATION/SUBVERSION.

o  Propaganda is the deliberate direction, even manipulation, of information to secure a definite outcome. It is an attempt to direct the thinking of the recipient, without his conscious collaboration, into predetermined channels that are established in the Publicity line of effort. It is the unwitting conditioning of the recipient by devious methods with an ulterior motive that seeks to move them incrementally over time into greater belief and acceptance of message transmitted in the Publicity line of effort.

o Infiltration and subversion operate internal to the targeted organization in order to inform, target, coordinate, and amplify the effects of the publicity and propaganda. Both operate to gather intelligence, obstruct legitimate courses of action, provide inside information, and leak sensitive information that undermines the leadership and suppresses the morale of friendly elements.

3 "Political Warfare Executive - The Meaning, Techniques and Methods of Political Warfare," His Britannic Majesty's Government, London, 1942, 5.

o Infiltration of political and social groups within a target state is done for the purpose of extending counterstate influence and control. The endgame is concealed and may involve illicit activities.

o Subversion undermines or detaches the loyalties of significant political and social groups within the target state and transfers political and/or ideological loyalties to the counter-state. As the counter-state forms, a counter-elite of influential individual and key leaders within the target state will later facilitate the legitimacy and permanency of the new regime.

Political warfare employs both publicity and propaganda. It recognizes no intrinsic virtue in the news but rather envisions it as a mechanism to exploit and build up support. From a political warfare perspective, control of the news cycle is the most potent means of attracting and building up a favorable audience. As it relates to the news cycle, publicity and propaganda can be merged to form a "pseudo-publicity" that is presented as news in furtherance of sustaining pseudo-realities maintained by cultural Marxist memes. Pseudo-publicity treatment of President Trump dominates the news cycle. The current campaign against President Trump operates in the following manner:

The Meta Narrative. Meta narratives seeks to delegitimize President Trump, his administration, and the vision of America he projected as a candidate. With cultural Marxist memes serving as the backdrop, President Trump is to be relentlessly characterized as unfit through the use of supporting narratives acting to move unwitting populations to belief in the meta narrative. Hence:

•"President Trump is illegitimate"

•"President Trump is corrupt"

•"President Trump is dishonest"

Note that the twitter accounts and mainstream media personalities pushing this narrative have seen their audience numbers rise greatly in the past 6 months. This is a direct result of the supporting and backdrop narratives channeling individuals to this meta-narrative.

Supporting Narratives. Meta-narratives are supported by an ongoing series supporting-narratives that can be swapped out as circumstances warrant. It is important to recognize that these stories do not have to be true, valid or accurate to serve their purpose. Over time, deserved or not, the cumulative effect of these supporting narratives will result in a Trump fatigue. From a political warfare perspective, President Trump's inability to meet this challenge will cast him as a weak failed leader. The current list of supporting narratives include:

•         "Russia hacked the election"       - illegitimate

•         "Obstruction of Justice"                - corrupt

•         "Hiding Collusion"                            - dishonest

•         "Putin Puppet"                                 - treasonous

Backdrop Narratives. The backdrop to the meta and supporting narratives are cultural Marxist memes designed to sustain a general sense of loathing of President Trump and the America that elected him.

Hence:

•         "[meta] President Trump is illegitimate, [supporting] he was elected because of Russian hacking, [backdrop] and besides, he a racist, sexist xenophobe."

Adversaries utilize these interlocking narratives as a defensive political and information warfare screen that silences critics and smears supporters of President Trump. When people in the media question the behavior, actions and decisions of the Trump Administration's opponents, they are immediately said to be "working for the Russians" or "supporting Russian propaganda." Individual Americans who support the President are deemed "deplorable" and "racist."

End State. Attacks on President Trump are not just about destroying him, but also about destroying the vision of America that lead to his election. Those individuals and groups seeking the destruction of President Trump actually seek to suffocate the vision of America that made him president. Hence, the end state is not just a delegitimized, destabilized, immobilized and possibly destroyed presidency; but also a demoralized movement composed of a large enough bloc to elect a president that subsequently become self-aware of its own disenfranchisement.

CONCLUSION.


The recent turn of events give rise to the observation that the defense of President Trump is the defense of America. In the same way President Lincoln was surrounded by political opposition both inside and outside of his wire, in both overt and covert forms, so too is President Trump. Had Lincoln failed, so too would have the Republic. The administration has been maneuvered into a constant backpedal by relentless political warfare attacks structured to force him to assume a reactive posture that assures inadequate responses. The president can either drive or be driven by events; it's time for him to drive them.

Donald Trump’s Warsaw Speech

Donald Trump’s Warsaw speech has reignited a controversy about the superiority of Western civilization.  He is being excoriated for dog whistling a variety of taboo assertions.  The Atlantic accuses him of racial and religious paranoia.  The New Republic claimed the speech was an appeal to the International Brotherhood of White Grievance.  His main offence was to declare that Western civilization is superior to others and that it is under attack.  Educated people have been taught that all societies are equal and to claim otherwise is racist.  This fact is codified in United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.  It asserts, “all doctrines, policies and practices based on or advocating superiority of peoples or individuals on the basis of national origin or racial, religious, ethnic or cultural differences are racist, scientifically false, legally invalid, morally condemnable and socially unjust.”  Therefore Mogadishu is equal to Malmö. 

Trump’s position is similar to Italy's Silvio Belusconi who commented shortly after the 9/11 attack: "We should be confident of the superiority of our civilization, which consists of a value system that has given people widespread prosperity in those countries that embrace it, and guarantees respect for human rights and religion.  This respect certainly does not exist in Islamic countries.”  Belusconi was immediately set upon by the pack of independent minds. The Belgian Prime Minister, Guy Verhofstadt stated, "I can hardly believe Mr. Berlusconi made such remarks because the EU is based on values such as multiculturalism and the meeting of different civilizations."  The head of Italian Jewish organizations, Amos Luzzatto, told the newspaper La Repubblica, ''In my opinion, one can not speak of the superiority of one culture over another.''  Belusconi received so much criticism that he felt it necessary to apologize.  It was a demonstration of the power of the charge of racism.

No other societies have such a reluctance to declare their superiority.  This was explained by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, the future Pope Benedict XVI.  He wrote, “There is a self-hatred in the West that can be considered only as something pathological. . . . it no longer loves itself; it now only sees what is despicable and destructive in its own history, while it is no longer able to perceive what is great and pure there."  This pathology is not an accident.  It is the product of years of indoctrination.

The primary promoter of this indoctrination was the Communist Party.  An early Communist activist, Willi Munzenberg, said “We must organize the intellectuals and use them to make Western civilization stink!”  Judge Robert Bork relates a story about Yale University proposing a study of Western civilization.  He tells how an English professor exploded: "Western Civilization?  Why not a chair for colonialism, slavery, empire, and poverty?" while a history professor said: "The major export of Western Civilization is violence."

This hostility to things Western gradually morphed into an anti-white prejudice.  Susan Sontag famously declared, "The white race is the cancer of human history. It is the white race and it alone - its ideologies and inventions - which has upset the ecological balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of life itself." Entertainers like actor Donald Sutherland have declared that they are “ashamed” of being white”  Sutherland continued, “It’s interesting to realize that you are seen as an integral part of a group that many of whom are mendacious, misogynist, of bigots, racists, and it’s appalling.”

Mona Sahlin, former leader of the Swedish Social Democratic Party, responded to the question what is Swedish culture? “I cannot figure out what Swedish culture is. I think that is what makes many Swedes so envious of immigrant groups. You have a culture, an identity, a history, something that binds you together."  Former British Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, reportedly said, "the English as a race are not worth saving".  German Leftist politician Gregor Gysi declared, “Every year more native Germans die than there are born.  That is very fortunate.  It’s because the Nazis are not very good at having offspring”.  Salafism expert and Green party member Kurt Edler suggests that Germany has no real culture.  He claims, “the indigenous people themselves have completely disintegrated. The common word is dominant culture. There is none. There are lifestyle milieus.”  According to Edler, “the West has long since perished.”  This is also the conclusion of  Vladimir Putin who declared, “In a European country, a child is raped by a migrant, and the court releases him. It doesn’t fit into my head what on earth they’re thinking over there. I can’t even explain the rationale – is it a sense of guilt before the migrants? What’s going on? It’s not clear….A society that cannot defend its children has no future.”


There was one glaring error in Trump’s speech.  He stated, “we have never given up on freedom and independence as the right and destiny of the Polish people, and we never, ever will.”  The Poles in his audience undoubtedly noticed this error and were reminded of some unpleasant memories at the end of World War II.

Donald Trump vs. The Media



In order to deal effectively with adversaries it is necessary to have accurate information about them and an ability to process this information accurately.   The establishment media is failing miserably in their efforts to discredit Donald Trump because they have a distorted view of Trump and a high opinion of their own abilities that borders on delusional.  Donald Trump is a genius.  One of the traits of his genius is the ability to convince people that he is not all that bright and that he is hypersensitive about insults.  He is continuously underestimated by his critics who repeatedly claim that his last mishap has destroyed him.  Tony Schwartz, who helped Trump write “Art of the Deal,” explained how Trump “plays” people: “On the phone with business associates, Trump would flatter, bully, and occasionally get mad, but always in a calculated way,” Schwartz recalled that he once saw Trump verbally abuse someone on the phone, hang up, look at Schwartz and calmly say something like, “Do you think it worked?”

Trump’s opponents think they are significantly more intelligent than him.  This is one of the traps he has sets.  These people are paid enormous salaries to read from teleprompters or pontificate about subjects about which they know little or nothing.  People like Mika Brzezinski who believe it is her job to control what people think reportedly had the lowest SAT scores in the history of the college she attended.  Wolf Blitzer embarrassed himself when he appeared on Jeopardy.  Al (“resist we much”) Sharpton reveals that he could not even read from a teleprompter.   Yet people condemn Trump for being as Martin Sheen dubbed him an “empty-headed moron.”  Sheen knows how a president should act because he played one on TV.  This is reminiscent of Rep. Tom Daschle who invited four actresses who had played farm wives in movies—Jane Fonda, Sissy Spacek, Jessica Lange, and Sally Field—to testify before the Democratic members of a House committee on Capitol Hill about the future of family farms.  When people confuse fantasy with reality there is a problem.

One of Trump’s most effective tools is his twitter account.  Friend and foe alike has advised him to abandon this form of communication.  The loudest people advising him to abandon twitter are the ones who have been damaged by it the most.  Many of these posts are outrageous.  They are intentionally so.  Had Trump tweeted, “Mika Brzezinski is being unreasonable,” his message would not have garnered media attention.  Trump uses his twitter account to communicate directly with the public without the establishment media’s filter.  At one time the establishment media held a monopoly on information.  The loss off their power has deranged many of them.  One example of how the media shades news stories is provided by Paul Waldman’s comment about an “unprovoked assault on a journalist.”  While Congressman Gianoforte should not have assaulted this journalist he could have had security remove him and possibly press charges against him.

Trump tends to exaggerate and is often imprecise.  He is therefore accused of lying.  But these claims frequently turn out to have a firm basis.  His claim about illegals voting may be backed up by a Harvard study on illegal voters.  He tweeted, “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”  Obama obviously did not personally “wire tap” Trump Tower.  “Wire tapping” is no longer done.  This does not invalidate the essential truth of his statement.

The media establishment wraps itself in the flag and the First Amendment.  Carl Bernstein complained “It’s not just anti-CNN, it’s anti-freedom of the press, it’s anti-freedom of speech.”  The Committee to Protect Journalists stated, ”Freedom of the press is a cornerstone of our democracy. The press are the people's window into the halls of power, and most importantly, they are the people's check on that power. When the president attacks the press, he attacks the people."  Jonathan Ernst from Reuters claims Trump’s attacks on the press threaten to undermine public confidence in its work.  What they are intentionally missing is that Trump is not attacking the press.  He is addressing the establishment media’s abuse of the First Amendment.  The press has undermined itself by promoting laughably fake news stories.  Victor Davis Hanson observed, “CNN is now no longer a news organization, but has been reduced to caricature by Trump hatred.”  Trump has encouraged their irrational reports.

Reporters are now in fear of their lives.  A reporter for a porn magazine confronted Trump’s spokesperson for commenting on a retracted CNN story.  He claimed she was being “inflammatory” for reporting the facts of this incident.  The Committee to Protect Journalists issued the statement, "Targeting individual journalists or media outlets, on or offline, creates a chilling effect and fosters an environment where further harassment or even physical attack is deemed acceptable.”  They condemned “the president's threat of physical violence against journalists.”  Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, claimed Trump will inspire someone "to do something violent against journalists in a large way."  Ana Navarro claimed Trump’s tweet was, “an incitement to violence. He is going to get somebody killed in the media.  The president of the United States is inciting violence against the free press and America.”

It is actually Trump’s opponents who are promoting violence.  Robert DiNiro wants to punch Trump in the face.  Tim Kaine told Democrats to “take the fight to the streets.”  Madonna wants to blow up the White House.  Johnny Depp is talking about its time for actors to assassinate President’s.  Kathy Griffin holding DJT’s bloody head failed the humor test.  Rapper Snoop Dogg's new video features a mock shooting of a clown version of Donald Trump.  Shakespeare in the Park depicts an assassination of Trump.  Howard Dean answered by labeled Trump voters as people “with guns that want to shoot up the place” and the NRA as a “white supremacist organization.”

Jonathan Ernst complains, “it feels demoralizing to be attacked repeatedly by the president of the United States; some feel physically threatened.”  Could a president also be demoralized by relentless criticism?   Donny Deutsch protested,  “Enough is enough with this disgusting vulgar man and to talk about women that way, and the irony is you physically look like you do, beyond the stupidity of it. You are a pig.”  Jerry Springer declared,  “I’m sorry, but Trump’s behavior is not just beneath the dignity of the presidency…but that of any decent man.”  De Niro also calls Trump “blatantly stupid,” “a punk” and a “bulls–t artist.”  Reza Aslan CNN’s religious scholar called Trump a piece of shit.  Stephen Hawking attributes the end of the world to Trump: “We are close to the tipping point where global warming.”  Where were these critics when Bill Clinton was abusing an intern or when Barack Obama was inviting rap singers to the White House? 

Trump concentrates his attacks on members of the elite.  President Obama, Hillary Clinton and their media allies concentrated their attacks on the Deplorables and people clinging to their guns and bibles.  They have a distorted view of reality.  Yet Jonathan Ernst who claims Trump “inflated his mediocre business career,” believes  “Trump has a knack for choosing weak adversaries.”  Donald Trump has taken on the media with its tens of thousands of researchers, academia, the bureaucracy and a large part of the business community.  To claim a multibillionaire has had a mediocre business career and to claim he attacks weak adversaries in an indication of a lack of attachment to reality.
