The Second Insurrection
1/6/23 was worse than the first one
Last night, on the two-year anniversary of the violent coup attempt engineered by Putin’s General Mike Flynn and his fifth column, the House of Representatives voted Kevin McCarthy in as Speaker after fifteen rounds of humiliating chaos, and at one point, near violence.
This historic dysfunction is an echo of the vote in 1856, when America was radicalized against itself in an existential conflict over slavery. That time it took 133 rounds to elect a Speaker.
Orchestrating the spectacle last week was what I refer to as the Insurrection Caucus, who are people in Congress that participated in the planning and execution of the attack on the Capitol two years ago — people like MTG, Lauren Boebert, Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Scott Perry and accused sex trafficker Matt Gaetz.
Gaetz is close friends with neo-Nazi Peter Thiel chaos agent Chuck Johnson who appears to be helping to run the theatrical performance.
The failure of the justice system, the legislative branch, and the election process that enabled actual seditionists to be put into Congress is a signal of a rapidly declining nation. In a functioning democracy based on the rule of law, this could never happen. Unfortunately, we are no longer a functioning democracy.
For the next two years, the legislative branch will accomplish nothing other than fascist performance art, which includes holding the full faith and credit of the United States hostage in order to extract cuts in Social Security and Medicare.
On the same day that the GOP elected a feckless, powerless puppet to lead them, the former richest man in the world, who is lording over his $44 billion purchase of Twitter in the way any brainwashed 8chan troll would, allowed the man who planned and executed the first insurrection back on the platform.
Mike Flynn, the worst traitor in American history, bar none, is now free to run psyops in the open, along with his “Digital Soldiers.” For example, Kremlin propagandist Tracy Diaz, who has been employed by Mike Flynn for at least five years and helped create QAnon, was let back on Twitter by Musk in order to participate in the “Twitter Files” psyop a few weeks ago.
Flynn is now unleashed to spread his instruction manual for creating a civil war in the United States through propaganda and psyops. This tweet from this morning will literally kill people.
It is hard to imagine that the seditionists in Congress and Elon Musk did not have the anniversary of 1/6 in mind when they took aggressive steps to destabilize and undermine democracy and the rule of law on that date. This was a signal from the enemies of America that the first insurrection was just a warm up, an opening salvo in a war which has jumped the line from a cognitive warfare to political violence.
The second 1/6 insurrection was far worse than the first one, because, while the images of neo-Nazis and QAnon cult members invading the Capitol were unmistakably criminal, this time the seditionists have been allowed to take Congressional offices and openly incite violence on Twitter with no legal consequences.
The psychological war I have been warning about for two and a half years is now right out in the open, but our feckless press continues to report on our national descent into fascism as if it’s just more politics, while the Overton Window slides all the way to Nazis.
In the 1940s, as chronicled in the brilliant podcast Ultra by Rachel Maddow, John Rogge was an American hero who sacrificed his career and his mental health to make sure the mass infiltration of Congress by Nazi sympathizers in WWII was not covered up by the government — which attempted to suppress his report.
We need people like John Rogge to step up from inside the DOJ. We need people like the dogged reporters who braved immense pressure and brutal smears to uncover the plot to overturn democracy nearly a century ago.
Like the investigation into the theft of the 2016 election by Mike Flynn and his allies, we now have our collective fates in the hands of one man, Jack Smith. As we know, Robert Mueller was the great hope of democracy, but at the end of the day he failed, with the help of traitors in the Trump administration, to warn the American people of the scope and scale of the danger we face.
I hope this time will be different, but I am old enough to not trust anyone to fully grasp and communicate the dire circumstances of our collective fate.
This internal war, of course, is a project of Vladimir Putin and the terrorists in the United States he collaborates with. As I have often said, fascism does not stop on its own, it must be defeated.
As I was writing this article, I received an email from Joe Flynn, the littlest brother of the worst traitor in American history who runs the white nationalist paramilitary 1st Amendment Praetorians (1AP), along with propagandists Tracy Diaz and Brian Cates.
Joe chose to send me a picture of his racist coffee mug because he, like tens of millions of others has been brainwashed by his own brother, Mike Flynn.
We are in a hot war against an enemy from within. It is high time to start treating it that way, but, sadly, I can only hope Jack Smith knows his American history.
