2024: The Great Divide
The word I keep coming back to is dread.
I have been horizontal with the flu for nearly a week, so I admit I’m not in the best condition to dispassionately evaluate our current situation. Everything hurts, and everything is also annoying by default, so accept my apologies for being a bit slow.
However, I think my faculties are sufficiently functional to know 2024 is going to be very, very hard. The word I keep coming back to is dread. This year will be The Great Divide — a test to see which road our civilization is going to travel down.
The volume, intensity and shamelessness of the psychological war besieging the planet right now is approaching the worst I’ve seen in 3 1/2 years on the front lines of it, and we have barely started an election year.
The American general of the fascist forces attempting to dismantle global liberal democracy, Mike Flynn, has decided to openly express his war footing against his fellow citizens.
“Right now I’m at war.”
— Mike Flynn
As an American, a father, and a member of the human race, I find it impossible to understand how we have not managed to address Flynn’s open treason. It was once frowned upon in the United States to declare war against your own country.
To make matters worse, Mike Flynn is launching a full frontal assault on US military service members. He wants to enrage as many people as possible in our rank and file because he sees mutiny and sedition in the military as a necessary part of overthrowing the government. He says he’s “lost trust” in the military.
The remarkable thing is that — given his ongoing $200,000+ pension — the military apparently still has trust in him.
As if to underscore how nasty the fight this election year is going to be, Mike Flynn’s partner in crime since the 2016 election, Roger Stone, was caught on tape talking to NYPD officer Sal Greco & planning to assassinate either Eric Swalwell or Jerry Nadler in order to “send a message” prior to the 2020 election.
Stone was not joking, and this was, according to the source, not an isolated incident.
The escalation of chatter about “black swan events,” the intentionally combustible situation in the Middle East, and a deeply radicalized American population with no guardrails to being sent further down genocidal, violent rabbitholes — makes this a uniquely dangerous moment.
The one way that we could defuse some of the danger would be to bring the full weight of the federal government to bear on the people perpetrating this vicious operation. We’ve got names, faces, dates and places. We’ve got audio and video of their confessions.
And yet, our feckless Justice Department, our toothless FBI, and our military brass use blind hope to manage our national crisis.
The one chance we have is to shame our government into action. We need to start making demands that they cannot ignore.
