So, about that “transition”

There isn’t going to be any transition, for the obvious reason that a) Biden lost, and, b) Biden is one of dozens of politicians who have been corrupted by foreign funding.

Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports a bombshell potential major disruption in a key part of the presidential transition before President-Elect Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20: the Pentagon has without warning or explanation halted Biden’s intelligence transition briefings.

Reports Swan: “Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller ordered a Pentagon-wide halt to cooperation with the transition of President-elect Biden, shocking officials across the Defense Department, senior administration officials tell Axios.”

Biden’s team has so far maintained that it’s unaware of the directive while Pentagon officials are said to be stunned and in the dark: “Administration officials left open the possibility cooperation would resume after a holiday pause,” the breaking Axios report notes. “The officials were unsure what prompted Miller’s action, or whether President Trump approved.”

This is just the first step that is obvious to the public. There will be more, until it finally becomes obvious to the media that Biden will not be allowed anywhere near the White House. 


CodeMonkeyZ contemplates the river-crossing

This Twitter thread strikes me as a repetition of what has been obvious for over a month, but since I am told what I consider obvious is often considered nothing of the sort, I’ll post it here.

Trump is about to make the biggest decision of his presidency. Let me explain.

Julius Caesar was enormously popular and commanding an army of fiercely loyal soldiers. The Roman swamp wanted nothing to do with him and in January 49BC the Roman Senate ordered Julius Caesar to disband his army and return home or become an “Enemy of the State”. Julius Caesar, with the popular support of the Roman populace, and the loyalty of the military, marched his army over the Rubicon river in the North of Italy and became a LEGEND in history.

Donald Trump is enormously popular and commanding an army of fiercely loyal soldiers. The US swamp wants nothing to do with him. Election infrastructure was allegedly attacked and he now has his back to the wall. The courts have failed him. His own political party has failed him.

Trump still has immensely popular support within the US populace, and the fierce loyalty of the military. Trump has EO13848 which allows him to take drastic measures and could potentially be used to restore the Republic.

Does Trump utilize EO13848 and become a LEGEND in history?

OR

Does Trump submit his family to the mercy of the incoming administration who will be hellbent on making an example of them?

I don’t know if CodeMonkeyZ knows something in particular or just enjoys explaining the historical analogy on an audience that is unfamiliar with it, but I am not aware of any reason that President Trump needs to do anything until the middle of next month. That being said, #crosstherubicon has been the #1 trending hashtag on SG2 since early November. It’s what Americans want him to do. No, it’s more than that, it’s what Americans are demanding, in light of the unprecedented electoral fraud.

Anyhow, the only opinion that matters is President Trump’s. He has stated, repeatedly and clearly, that he will do his duty to the country and the Constitution. And perhaps more importantly, he has shown absolutely no sign of bowing before the manufactured social pressure of the corrupted institutions.


Unrestricted war in action

I don’t think anyone is slow-rolling the intelligence reports. The problem is more likely that the ongoing hacks are bringing more clarity and providing more context every day. Kevin McCullough reports on Twitter:

BREAKING: It appears that China’s attempt to interfere in the elections of 2020, was so intense that it may take a bit longer to codify and report on. Significant since they are so close to the Biden’s, the left, & Dominion.

Keep in mind this was all laid out by a pair of extraordinary Chinese army strategists, Qiao Lang and Wang Xiangsui, more than 20 years ago. From Unrestricted Warfare:

In a world of unprecedented complexity, the form and the scope of application of means is also in a state of continuous change, and a better means used alone will have no advantage over several means used in combination. Thus, supra-means combinations are becoming extremely necessary…. During a war between two countries, during the fighting and killing by two armies, is it necessary to use special means to wage psychological war aimed at soldiers’ families far back in the rear area? When protecting a country’s financial security, can assassination be used to deal with financial speculators? Can “surgical” strikes be made without a declaration of war against areas which are sources of drugs or other smuggled goods? Can special funds be set up to exert greater influence on another country’s government and legislature through lobbying? And could buying or gaining control of stocks be used to turn another country’s newspapers and television stations into the tools of media warfare?

Apart from the justifiability of the use of the means, that is, whether or not they conform to generally recognized rules of morality, another point in common among the above questions is that they all touch on the use of means in a supra-national, supra-domain way. They are also issues in what we are talking about when we say “supra-means combinations.”

President Trump is not exaggerating when he says the election fraud is a national security issue. The current situation goes well beyond a Constitutional or election crisis.


War by other means

Specifically, financial. These pictures of 20 governors with active ties to China demonstrate how Chinese strategists are effectively applying the financial aspect of comprehensive warfare against the United States.

Financial war is a form of non-military warfare which is just as terribly destructive as a bloody war, but in which no blood is actually shed. Financial warfare has now officially come to war’s center stage—a stage that for thousands of years has been occupied only by soldiers and weapons, with blood and death everywhere. We believe that before long, “financial warfare” will undoubtedly be an entry in the various types of dictionaries of official military jargon. Moreover, when people revise the history books on twentieth-century warfare in the early 21st century, the section on financial warfare will command the reader’s utmost attention.

One last warning

The President puts the state fraudsters on final notice as December 14 approaches:

Swing States that have found massive VOTER FRAUD, which is all of them, CANNOT LEGALLY CERTIFY these votes as complete & correct without committing a severely punishable crime. Everybody knows that dead people, below age people, illegal immigrants, fake signatures, prisoners, and many others voted illegally. Also, machine “glitches” (another word for FRAUD), ballot harvesting, non-resident voters, fake ballots, “stuffing the ballot box”, votes for pay, roughed up Republican Poll Watchers, and sometimes even more votes than people voting, took place in Detroit, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and elsewhere. In all Swing State cases, there are far more votes than are necessary to win the State, and the Election itself. Therefore, VOTES CANNOT BE CERTIFIED. THIS ELECTION IS UNDER PROTEST!

You can almost see their smug expressions as they sneer “so what are you going to do about it?” I tend to suspect the answer will be a very big surprise.

And there is more:

Speaker 11: You know that it’s tradition for previous president’s to go to the next president’s inauguration. So will you attend Joe Biden’s?

President Trump: I don’t want to say that yet.

Speaker 11: But he is going to be inaugurated.

President Trump: I mean, I know the answer. I’ll be honest. I know the answer, but I just don’t want to say it yet.

Speaker 11: Is that a yes?

President Trump: Look. A thing like this possibly has never happened before, but maybe people just didn’t catch it. But we’ve caught it.

Sounds a lot more like a no, doesn’t it? 


No need to wait two days

President Trump is quite clear on the matter.

The Supreme Court really let us down. No Wisdom, No Courage!

And what, pray tell, do you think courage might be required for? But it’s apparent that he wasn’t counting on the Supreme Court to save the USA. Don’t forget this:

If the two Senators from Georgia should lose, which would be a horrible thing for our Country, I am the only thing that stands between “Packing the Court” (last number heard, 25), and preserving it. I will not, under any circumstances, Pack the Court!

He also knows he is the only thing that stands between the end of the US Constitution and preserving it.



Supreme Court declines its duty

(ORDER LIST: 592 U.S.)

FRIDAY DECEMBER 11, 2020

ORDER IN PENDING CASE

155, ORIG. TEXAS V. PENNSYLVANIA, ET AL.

The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution. Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.

Statement of Justice Alito, with whom Justice Thomas joins: 

In my view, we do not have discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction.

So, by a 7-2 vote, the Supreme Court renders itself irrelevant. This is hardly a surprise; I never had any more faith in Barrett than in Roberts. Perhaps there are a few more permutations and a little more drama before the court option is entirely closed, but it is becoming increasingly likely that the decision to preserve the Constitution will fall to President Trump. 

May God grant him wisdom and inspire him to make the right decision.

It’s worth noting that prior to the decision, Alexander Macris shared his doubts that it really mattered what the Supreme Court decided:

No matter what the Supreme Court rules, 70 million Americans are going to be very unhappy. For 46 states, 4 legislatures, 3 territories, and 2 governors of the Union to be involved in this lawsuit tells us that the stakes are incredibly high. Indeed, this is the gravest Constitutional Crisis since 1860. As such, there’s little reason to believe that the Supreme Court’s decision will put a definitive end to the crisis. Dred Scott didn’t stop the US Civil War, and Texas vs Pennsylvania may not stop whatever comes next.

Indeed. But, as always, wait two days AFTER Trump’s initial comments in response to this abidication by the Supreme Court before reaching any conclusions. My immediate thought is that the president needed to all all the other options to be exhausted, and allow all other hopes to be extinguished, before taking on the burden of crossing the Rubicon by invoking the Insurrection Act.

Texas GOP responds:

Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.

Perhaps indeed.


Pentagon will not support CIA

Now I wonder what might have caused the rupture in that relationship? It couldn’t have been the discovery that the CIA is actually working for the enemies of the American people and the US Constitution, could it?

In a surprising move, the Pentagon has told the Central Intelligence Agency that it plans to end the majority of the military support it provides to the agency’s counterterrorism missions by Jan. 5, according to a former senior administration intelligence official.

It is unclear how the decision would impact the spy agency’s worldwide counterterrorism missions that often rely on the U.S. military for logistical support and personnel.

Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller sent a letter to CIA Director Gina Haspel outlining the decision, according to the former official, who characterized the action as both surprising and unprecedented.

And we have a Haspel reference? Surely this would be a good time for her to come forward and give a press conference explaining this unprecedented action by the Pentagon. 

Meanwhile, GA Governor Kemp is finished, per the God-Emperor.

How does Governor @BrianKempGA allow certification of votes without verifying signatures and despite the recently released tape of ballots being stuffed? His poll numbers have dropped like a rock. He is finished as governor!

– President Donald Trump.


RIP Chuck Yeager

Most of my heroes have either been intellectual heroes or men that I have known and personally admired. But the legendary pilot Chuck Yeager, who died yesterday at the age of 97, not only struck me as the model of a hero, he has always represented the epitome of that which is cool to me.

Yeager enlisted in September 1941, but was initially not accepted for flight training giving his age and educational background. When the U.S. entered the war three months later, however, the Air Force changed its requirements and Yeager was accepted, thanks in part to his remarkable 20/10 vision, which once enabled him to shoot a deer at 600 yards. 

Yeager was initially a flight mechanic before being given his wings. His first posting was to Britain, where he flew P-51 Mustangs with the 363d Fighter Squadron. On his eighth mission, in March 1944, he was shot down over France. Rescued by the French Resistance, he was spirited away to Spain, and remained with the guerrillas for two months, helping them make bombs.

Yeager would be awarded the Bronze Star for his efforts in France and Spain, when he helped another crashed pilot, B-17 bombardier Omar ‘Pat’ Patterson, to cross the Pyrenees when he was suffering from hypothermia. He returned to the U.K. in May 1944.

Yeager was not supposed to fly over enemy territory again: having been shot down once, the fear was that if he was shot down again he could give away information about the Resistance. However Yeager and another ‘evader’, as the pilots who were shot down and escaped were known, pleaded their case directly before Dwight Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander, and convinced him to allow them to fly again.

Four months later, in October 1944, he became the first pilot in his group to make ‘ace in a day’ – becoming an ‘ace’ by shooting down five planes, but doing it in only one day. Two of the five planes were downed without firing a single shot: Yeager maneuvered into a firing position, and the German pilot panicked, swerving his Messerschmitt Bf 109 into his wingman and the two planes crashing.

Yeager was clear-eyed about the cost of war. 

In his 1968 memoir, he wrote that ‘atrocities were committed by both sides’. He was part of a mission with orders to ‘strafe anything that moved’, an wrote: ‘I’m certainly not proud of that particular strafing mission against civilians. But it is there, on the record and in my memory.’

After the war, Yeager, as an ‘evader’ was given his choice of assignments and chose Wright Field, to be close to his West Virginia home. He became a test pilot, and was selected for the attempt to break the sound barrier in the Bell X-1 which, like all his planes, he named Glamorous Glennis after his wife. It was a risky venture, but Yeager was determined to claim the record.

Two days before the due date he fell from a horse and broke two ribs. Yeager didn’t tell his bosses.

He went to see a local doctor, rather than the military specialists, who taped him up as best he could. He only told his wife and another test pilot, who helped him rig up a way to close the X-1’s hatch with a broom handle, because he was in so much pain.

The record was broken above the Mojave Desert in October 1947, but was not announced to the public until June 1948.  

A B-29 bomber carried the X-1 26,000 feet (7,925 m) over California’s Mojave Desert and let it go. Neither Yeager nor aviation engineers knew if the plane – or the pilot – would be able to handle the unprecedented speed without breaking up. But Yeager took the 31-foot (10 meter) X-1, powered by liquid oxygen and alcohol, to Mach 1.06, about 700 mph (1,126 kph) at 43,000 feet (13,000 meters), as if it were a routine flight.

He then calmly brought the craft gliding down to a dry lake bed, 14 minutes after it had been cut loose on a flight that was a significant step toward space exploration. Yeager said he had noted a Mach 0.965 reading on his speedometer before it jumped off the scale without a bump.

‘I was thunderstruck,’ he wrote in his 1985 autobiography ‘Yeager.’ ‘After all the anxiety, breaking the sound barrier turned out to be a perfectly paved speedway.’

His exploit ranked alongside the Wright brothers’ first flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903 and Charles Lindbergh’s solo fight to Paris in 1927 as epic events in the history of aviation. 

If you haven’t read The Right Stuff, you really must.

Gen. Chuck Yeager, 1923 – 2020
