What we’re facing
Some thoughts from the frontlines of the information war:
My goal is to raise awareness about grave national security threats that are being ignored — or intentionally covered up. I don’t think enough people understand what they’re facing, and what’s happened to their family and friends. That is dangerous, and cruel.
My motivation is concern for my children and grandchildren, and a sense of duty to my country. This is a real fight for the essence of American — and global — democracy. Are we going to wake up and defend our rights, or will we succumb to the oldest sales pitch in the book — the Strongman?
3 1/2 years of investigation has given me a clear view into the cause of the chaotic information & cultural environment we’re seeing — and an excellent record of seeing the plans of malign actors ahead of time.
2024 is the year our enemies will try to break us. They are stoking multiple international crises while running full-spectrum domestic psychological operations to radicalize the population against itself ahead of the election.
There are numerous people involved in this effort, but the ringleaders are well-known. Donald Trump is just the front man they will make into a martyr when he’s no longer useful.
The federal government, the military and the press seem willfully ignorant to the larger picture. I think that’s a dereliction of duty that needs to be corrected. Citizens can handle the whole truth. Half-truths are not good enough.
We need to hear the people in charge admit we are the target nation of full-scale psychological war being conducted by a conspiracy of enemy foreign nation-states and domestic traitors. The goal is the end of democracy as a viable form of government. This is in fact WWIII, not a drill.
Think about it this way
Imagine a foreign government developed an invisible, odorless chemical weapon that causes serious brain damage. What if they snuck a huge supply into the United States and afflicted at least a third of the population?
We’d want to do something about that, right?
Now, replace “chemical” with “psychological” — why would that be any different?
When a coordinated, deliberate operation by a foreign government and its domestic allies causes a massive part of the population to act against their own self-interests, that is an act of war. Full stop.
Every person who has lost someone they care about to our national madness knows in their gut that this is not politics — this is a war crime.
Trauma is the secret weapon of our enemies. Social media means it can be delivered at scale — and its effects are devastating.
When you expose an unsuspecting person to content that induces trauma, ie. to “redpill” them, you have waged a personal, psychological attack that leaves them extremely vulnerable to a false solution.
Undue influence aka “brainwashing” is a dissociative disorder caused by repetitive trauma.
Cult leaders used to require a compound in Waco or Jonestown to brainwash people. Now they just need a Telegram channel.
It is crucial to understand that people suffering undue influence from repeated exposure to trauma will usually recover — and this is important — when exposure to the trauma stops. In other words, the best way to help a brainwashed person is to stop brainwashing them.’
Compromised Americans have weaponized trauma over social media by delivering coercive propaganda that causes undue influence in their victims that serves our enemies. This is what they mean by “free speech.”
A prime example of a foreign enemy operation specifically designed to induce brainwashing through repeated exposure to trauma is the former Twitter, now X. It is not a coincidence that the people who have been brainwashed almost universally take the side of our foreign enemies over America’s allies.
The reason this foreign psychological attack has been so effective for so long is that the population — including the press & the government — has been systematically trained not to talk about it. E.g. #RussiaRussiaRussia #Russiagate #BlueAnon
There are a few things we can all do to play our part in defeating this foreign attack:
Protect yourself & those around you by *talking about it*. Understanding the process of indoctrination & brainwashing is an effective inoculation against it.
Demand action by the government. Ask your representatives why they aren’t protecting us. Ask why the criminals waging war on Americans are being allowed to do so.
Stop being a bystander. If you’re going to be on social media, you need to understand you are in behind enemy lines in a psychological war. Find people you might be able to help, not just people to fight.
Stay connected to the people you’ve already lost, if possible. They are still in there. Your job is to be available to them when they figure things out for themselves.
This is year is going to be a test. Be ready friends.
