Michael Yon On The Current State Of Affairs In America

BY Herschel Smith
10 months, 1 week ago

Michael Yon.

Black Lives Matter has defaced the road with gang markings in front of the White House. I am right here right now but about 50 meters away from that top photo.

Buildings around Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Portland, and many other cities are pasted with “BLACK LIVES MATTER.” Businesses are boarded up to ward off the Flat Screen Rioters (FSRs) encouraged by team-Biden.

Some readers will say, “But Michael! You’re getting political!” Reality check: Osama bin Laden made the attacks on America for religiopolitical reasons. Historical fact. Politics to war.

It is also historical fact that I stood at 0430 this morning in front of the White House on “Black Lives Matter Plaza,” so-named this year, officially. And scrawled the graffiti of racial superiority and violence down the road.

They have murdered people and caused billions of dollars in losses due to theft, arson, and loss of business. Just here last week numerous people were stabbed and beaten. Right here. In front of the White House.

When terrorist groups did this in Iraq, do you know what we did? We hunted them down. I was there as witness. General Petraeus warned not to fly sectarian or other flags, or else.

And do you know what we did in Iraq and Afghanistan when people interfered with elections? I was there for both. We shot them.

I think that’s a good idea.  I’m sure, based on the fact that Petraeus is an adulterer and gun controller and aligned with the globalist and leftist agenda, he’d rather those complaining about interfered elections be shot.  He and McChrystal both.  I know what you’re thinking.  What does Petraeus being an adulterer have to do with his position on the constitution?  Answer: Unfaithfulness in one thing shows a systemic problem everywhere.

Do you know what we did when we caught terrorists fighting in the streets? We shot them. With rifles. With helicopters. With A-10s. With Hellfire missiles.

And you see why people like me are ready to leave Afghanistan and not get involved in Syria. If we cannot run a simple election in United States, we have no business installing our operating system abroad. President Trump is right. Get us out. Fix our own house.

We’ve got a guy with dementia and his crack-addict son — who clearly have sold out to foreign powers. A crackpot and a crack addict are a crack-pipe away from the White House, after an obviously fraudulent election.

We are so close to civil war that I can smell the gun oil. Ammunition is flying off the shelves by the billions of rounds. First-time gun owners have stripped the shelves. Anti-second amendment people have armed-up and some say explicitly this is to kill people like me who believe in the 1st and 2nd Amendments, and the Constitution in total. Supporting the Constitution is now seen as radical.

I think he’s right on every account.  Read the rest here.

    I believe that Yon is wrong about the Boogaloo crowd, well we’ll likely see soon enough! He is definitely wrong about the issue of comfort women, or sexual slaves, of the Jap military forces prior to and during WWII. It wasn’t just their Korean colony whose women were raped wholesale, but all Asian races, be they nominal Jap allies or an occupied land. Western women generally were raped for sport, then murdered by the “bandy-legged little savages”. However, Yon is (unfortunately) pretty spot-on with the rest of his comments.

    Facing the truth, the men of the Continental Army were treated worse than farm animals and mostly abandoned during and after the Revolutionary War.

    Since our people are basically ignorant of . . . everything bar their own personal businesses and work . . . they don’t know this.
    But they can sense it.
    Any man on the right (not leftist) knows how many of his lefto-puke neighbors would be willing to act against him in any way they could.
    How would the population in general, treat and react to, a force of rightist revolutionary Patriots on the warpath to defend the Constitution and the spirit of the Founding Fathers?

    Given modern technology every single lefto-puke out there would be an informer for any force opposed to the Patriots.
    Any force opposed to the Patriots would not need drones for scouting.
    From every window and every doorbell camera, every lefto-puke out there would be a scout for the anti-Patriot forces and would flood LE and whatever authorities they managed to get to talk to with desperate attempts at reporting the “Orange Man Bad” troops movements.
    The opposition to the Patriots would watch the war as in a video game.

    And every lefto-puke government agency SWAT team and LE and a considerable number of the Armed Forces would be happy to oblige and defend “law and order”
    It would be quite a task to launch and maintain a Revolutionary Army today.
    I give any attempt, save in sparsely populated areas, a 72 hours survival window before the powers that be, Trump or no Trump, fall on them like the wrath of God and obliterate all those not willing to surrender.

    So the only way to move forward with this would be to act like a surreptitious force of irregulars like any insurgence operating with limited resources in occupied (by the government) terrain.
    Like the IRA or pisslim terrorists or any similar force.
    In the late 1940s future Israelis convinced the British to leave Palestine by these methods. (BTW, the real “Palestineans” are the Israeli Jews; the non Jews in Israel are just stinking pisslim invaders, less than dogs.)

    And most of those that would be willing to participate have zero experience in this kind of life and operations and have never been on the opposite side of the forces of law and order and quite to the contrary.
    I’m not saying it can’t be done.
    But I wonder about (a) our disposition and (b) basic ability for it.
    There would be enormous losses at the beginning as reality culls the less able.
    Survival of the fittest. Death for the others.
    Enormous losses from a force by definition very small . . . gives us . . . very little to move on with.

    Just thinking aloud there, but our Patriots around the time of the Revolutionary War seem to have had some success by targeting the British officers easy to spot because they were mounted among their infantry.
    “Red Coats” . . . ooh . . . the irony.
    We are not going to find them mounted today.
    But, on the other hand, it’s not like they can hide all that much.
    And there are so many of them.
    I’m talking prominent and well known lefto-pukes out there.
    Everybody knows them
    And sniping is a different game from marching in full kit with flags flying through the middle of the street.
    Just saying . . .

    And here’s one of the 1st rules to live by: =E=V=E=R=Y= digital communication is like sending an e-mail to the enemy.
    They are listening to and reading =E=V=E=R=Y=T=H=I=N=G=.
    And =A=N=Y= AI device, every cell in your proximity beginning with your own, the “Internet of Things”, Alexa, Siri, Ring Doorbells, your whole digital setup, your children video games systems, =E=V=E=R=Y=T=H=I=N=G=, is spying on you and will get you dead the moment you utter the wrong words in its vicinity
    Cryptography can help quite a lot.
    But it has to be done by knowledgeable people.
    People have to be trained on it.
    It is not all that difficult.
    But you have to know how to do it.
    If done right you can pass it under the very noses of the whole alphabet soup and they won’t see it.
    Just saying . . .

    I don’t really think even the most enthusiastic of Patriots has an inkling of the distance between what we enjoy under the 2nd Amendment to what it would take to make the 2nd Amendment actually work for its original purpose, right here, right now, today.

    And . . . IF . . . we found the balls for it . . .

    “A Mauser rifle, 20 rounds, and the will to use it…”

    Yon is a pessimist. He thinks civil war would be a bad thing. For a long time I thought so too, but it’s looking like a step up from where we are now.

    I have no illusions about my own survival. 76, overweight, arthritic… I will be an early casualty, but after that I won’t be using up water and food.

    @George_Banner, Um, the Zionist, idolatrous, wholly wicked and perverse, Progressive, Talmudist Israel has killed 100,000 Christians in the middle east since 1947. No, the wholesale slaughter of the people living in around Israel isn’t only “pisslam.” The Jews are ethnically cleansing that area, regardless of religion, and have been for decades. They hate Christ even more than mohamed. You repeated a Jew media Fox News talking point that is 100% false.

    The Bolshevik Zionist Jews killed 1 million Christians prior to that. Either you are on the side of Christ or not, race will not save a man’s soul.

    The Jews will not be saved because of their Jewiness. Stop watching TV preachers. They are fake.

    From the standpoint of theory or of dreams, a true, honest to goodness, all out, civil war is the best thing that could happen for us IF we were to give one now.
    It would be like emergency surgery and reanimation for our deceased Constitutional Republic (July 4th, 1776 – November 6th, 2020)
    And it might bring it back to life . . . IF . . . it is not too late.
    From the standpoint of practicality the probability of it being successful is very small.
    We waited too long.
    And we didn’t prepare enough when the preparing was good.

    Mind you, the notion is “a true, honest to goodness, all out, civil war”
    My fear is that the best we can hope for is a series of limited, very confused and short skirmishes that would resolve nothing, waste good, decent lives and only prove to all those pusillanimous and comfortable “I’m not gonna fight you no matter what you do to me” types that they were right in not getting involved.

    How many well armed and resolute people would it take for “a true, honest to goodness, all out, civil war” to be carried out?

    Let’s throw a number out there just for comparison: the active duty US Army personnel number was around 472,000 in 2018.
    Just the Army.
    And the Army has all the equipment, training and will to fight and many of them are actually aching for something to happen. Anything.

    How many would WE need?
    And mostly without training and with much less (!!) equipment.
    Today it seems that every SWAT team has a tank thanks to the generosity of the taxpayers and the humongous amount of military surplus.
    How many people would WE get armed only with a semi-auto rifle?
    100,000? Dispersed. Unable to communicate without the opposition listening in as if they were part of the conversation.

    Unless we could get enough of LE and Armed Forces on our side . . . it would be a party for them.
    We would pose a lesser threat to them than your average pisslim jihadist gang.

    Look, I’m not against it.
    In fact, I’m very much in favor of a civil war because I don’t see any other way for our country to survive as something decent and not the commie-fagoty thing the demonKKKrats want to “fundamentally change” us into that flies would fly away from because it would be too much, even for their maggots.
    But I’m a realist, a practical individual and a modest student of systems and trying to keep a clear head about this.

    The Constitutional Republic (July 4th, 1776 – November 6th, 2020) is dead of a deadly disease: leftism plus corruption.
    We could put it on suspended animation while we give a civil war (emergency surgery) and try to bring it back to life.
    The problem is that as the surgeons we know the chances of a successful surgery and reanimation in the present circumstances are . . . small for lack of resources and time and patient condition.
    Since the alternative is unthinkable I’m in favor of the surgery.
    The alternative is we don’t have a country, anymore.
    But let us not go into it thinking it will be a remake of 1776.
    It would be . . . quite different.
    And much, much shorter.

    “We are so close to civil war that I can smell the gun oil.”

    From my vantage point, I couldn’t agree more. I often wondered what it would take to motivate your average conservative to take action. Apparently a hostile take over of the country might have done the trick.

    The Oathkeepers and some Three Percenter’s are showing up to the march on Washington this week end as a “Standing Militia” to protect the marchers and the White House if needed. If Burn Loot and Murder and Antifa show up things could get exciting. Which I’m sure they will.

    The entire article is worth the read, and illustrates the global threat of Communism.
    China MUST be defeated.
    This is a global fight. I just hope we can direct our anger outwards instead of destroying America from within. Fighting an internal war will just give the Chinese an excuse to take Australia, New Zealand and the entire Pacific while we bicker about semantics.

    Ya’ll are thinking too big. Mike Vanderboegh talked about this. There are plenty of leftist turds within easy driving distance of where you are now. Those are the people who should pay the price for sedition.

    If everyone does that in their own local AO nation wide, the wave of apoplectic rage from the surviving left as they demand protection from law enforcement will overwhelm law enforcement.

    @ Unknownsailor
    An idea worthy of consideration.

    What happens when within hours, LE, the FBI, maybe the National Guard and maybe elite units of the Armed Forces are ordered to intervene and hunt down the culprits?
    Are we going to take THEM on?
    The theater of operations could get unhealthy really fast.
    I’ll say “WILL get unhealthy really fast”
    Yes, some will be on our side but most will do the german “orders are orders”, click their heels and do what they are told.

    Digital comms will be virtually impossible and unless you are invisible a drone will see you and all the lefto-pukes we share the world with will be recording you from the comfort of their own homes.
    Imaging trying to operate kinetically and surreptitiously with a considerable number of your neighbors peering out of every window and camera trying to see you because they KNOW it is you.
    How long will you last?
    As soon as you leave your house ten cell phones will start recording you and conveying to LE that “he’s on the move!! . . . he just left his house and he’s carrying a rifle!!!”

    Now, if 100,000 of us just went out and started killing leftos at the same time we WOULD overwhelm the system.
    But the problem with numbers is that you plan for 100,000 and then you get 15 and then you find yourself in the wrong movie with the whole resources of an enemy government now comfortably focused only on you.
    And Trump won’t help you even if he wanted to.

    Once again: it is not that I’m against the general idea.
    It is that you have to understand that you can’t jump out of a plane without a parachute with the attitude of “I’ll deal with gravity when I encounter it and I’ll rise to the occasion and I’ll find a way”

    I’m not saying it is impossible.
    I’m saying that 99% of the very few willing are not up to it for lack of training and ability.
    And their operating span would be really short.

    Before you do something make sure it makes sense.

    ———
    I’m betting the high end of this ensemble will be occupied with high priority tasking. It should be assumed they could make a local appearance, but the NG and local LE are probably the main forces to consider aside from the Revcom paramilitaries. Attrition for reasons ranging from combat loss to desertion should impact all of those elements negatively.
    ——–
    “..some will be on our side but most will do the german “orders are orders”, click their heels and do what they are told”
    ——-

    True, but the vast bulk of the military are not combat formations and/or suited to ground combat. There is a higher percentage of traditional patriots in the combat arms, particularly ground combat formations. The quality of those forces has gone down hill considerably since the Obama era anyway.

    I don’t anticipate the opposition to be comfortable in their homes. I anticipate they will have difficulty getting along without power and the electronic gadgets will start to fall off as other things take priority for generator power and scarce fuel. As this crisis approached over the years, it would have been a good idea to relocate from hostile blue area jurisdictions to somewhere strategically advantageous (mine is 97% white, rural , forested, and mountainous, open carry, 2 days walking distance to the biggest wilderness in the Eastern US, near easy and rural ocean access, lacks large urban areas nearby, and retreat across a long wilderness border with Canada is also an option), The tactical considerations are that my property can be defended as it sits and affords instant access to the woods and mountains by the back door. If you choose to stay in a hopeless location going forward there can be little expectation of a good outcome for the reasons you mention. Something you have not touched on is the unholy nature of the enemy alliance. I do not expect the Moslems to tolerate the purple hair revolutionary freaks, alleged women, and homosexuals of antifa for very long, ditto with blm. I expect blm to devolve into mere roving urban savages and they will visit their wrath upon anyone in their path.

    A few rifle rounds into the right urban electrical substations would have the FLEAS, any city cops who join them, army, and national guard occupied for days or weeks.

    @NTS

    I thought we were trying to save civilization not ruin it.
    Do you have any idea of the money it costs and the time it takes to replace a big electrical substation?
    And we only have a limited production capacity to build them, barely to replace within normalcy and to build new ones as needed.
    If you seriously damage past a very small number power would be out for a long, long time.

    And making everybody miserable doesn’t seem like the way to solve our problems.
    It sounds like the way to attack an enemy country.
    It sounds really counterproductive.
    And a really bad idea.
    And wrong.
    And people in the dark, without comms, without comfort, without warmth or AC, without . . . anything and everything would start thinking “if this is what these dudes have to offer I want no part of it” and the commie bastards would howl with glee at it all since it would seem we would be doing THEIR work and alienating EVERYBODY..
    The commie bastards want everybody miserable so they can offer communism as the solution.
    Do we want to help them?

    As to “tying the hands” of anybody who would be hunting you as an enemy, they would always have enough hands to keep hunting you and then with even more urgency.

    That is a terrible, very, very bad idea.

    @NTS

    Indeed (for the most part).

    I’m hearing Mike V these days more than usual, but, let’s try to remember something about insurgents and some of those lessons that are now almost completely blurred from Sipsey. Maybe it’s Mike’s quote, maybe it’s not…but it would have been now.

    “Never piss off the friendlies.”

    Who caused or was complicit or merely participated in this?
    -If people don’t know who they are there’s always a deck of AoS Secret Weapon cards.
    Where do they live?
    What is the environment in their AO–the sights, smells, and sounds?
    Who’s in their AO.
    What do they need to support their activity?
    -What do they rely on?
    Who are their friends and logistical support allies?
    Last, but not least, who would miss them when they are gone?

    You nudge of the answers above.
    And, yes, remember the name Chris Dorner who paralyzed the state of California, the Feds, and Skynet until he went full snowflake retard.

    Stop thinking small unit tactics, crew-served weapons, and 16 inch non-floating barrels that shoot 6 MOA on a good day with crappy shelf ammo.

    Once these “folks” are dealt with the followers
    could be “herded” as they fall apart from disorder.
    True, some might rise to the top but I believe
    that they’ll be short lived due to inexperience and
    bad judgement…hence the dominoes will continue
    to fall. Regardless, The enemies of Our Republic MUST
    be dealt with NOW.!

    “Who’s leading the enemies of our Republic ?”
    CHINA

    CHINA

    The people in this country fomenting civil war are owned by the Chinese.
    The Chinese would like nothing better than to see this country turn into Bosnia. They’ll be the first vultures to fly in once the festivities slow down and we’ll be sorely unprepared.

    China just signed the biggest trade deal in history with pretty much the entire Pacific Rim, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, S. Korea, Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei.
    https://asiatimes.com/2020/11/rcep-trade-pact-heralds-dawn-of-asian-century/
    and they’re still working on India.

    This will eventually put China in place as the predominant economic force in the entire Pacific, so no matter how loud we rail against doing business with China (and we shouldn’t), they are continuing their global “outreach” to expand their influence and control. If India drops by for the party, they will have almost half the worlds population under their control.

    We Americans really need to start paying attention to what’s going on in the rest of the world, or we’ll be left in the dust and devolve into another oligarchy like Russia. You could probably argue that we’re already there, but I have to believe we can win.
