The Case for a New American Civil War, by Dmitry Orlov

How long does the United States stay together in its present form? From Dmitry Orlov at thesaker.is:

Will the USA hold together through 2024? Earlier this year Covid-related complications took the life of Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the bombastic perennial leader of Russia’s Liberal Democratic Party. He was known not just for his inimitable oratory but also for the uncanny accuracy of his predictions. For example, he predicted the start of Russia’s Special Military Operation in the Ukraine almost to the day—months before the fact and at a time when nobody else had much of a clue as to what would happen. Another prediction of his reads as follows: “There won’t be a US presidential election in 2024 because there will no longer be a United States.” Will he turn out to be prescient on this count too? Let’s watch!

Zhirinovsky is by no means alone with making such a prediction. Recent opinion polls show over 40% of Americans expressing apprehensions that a new civil war is likely to break out over the next decade or so. Perish the thought that the good people surveyed had performed an independent analysis, based on which they were able to compute the probability of a civil war! By now, the vast majority of the people in the US have been conditioned to perceive reality as a mosaic composed of short news clips, sound bites, scenes no longer than can fit between two television commercials and miniature narratives that present this or that imaginary object in a positive or a negative light. They think that a civil war is likely because that’s what they have been told through mass media or the invisibly yet relentlessly chaperoned social media.

“Say Nothing” Phase of this Fourth Turning, by Jim Quinn

Violence is coming. From Jim Quinn at theburningplatform.com:

‘Whatever you say, say nothing.’Old Irish Phrase

Patrick Radden Keefe's 'Say Nothing': Review - The Atlantic

“God made the Catholics, but the Armalite made them equal.”Patrick Radden Keefe

It has become clear to me, since the installation of dementia patient Biden as the illegitimate figurehead president by his globalist Deep State handlers, their agenda is to tear down our modern civilization and replace it with a totalitarian techno-gulag where you will be electronically monitored, disarmed, own nothing, be judged by social credit score, live in fear, and be happy – or else.

I’ve been pondering in which direction this Fourth Turning will flow, while observing the words and actions of our pedophile president and the other World Economic Forum puppets like Trudeau, Macron, and a myriad of other EU lackeys. I intellectually understand all Fourth Turnings reach their climax after immense bloodshed, climactic battles which could have gone either way, and in some cases saw citizens slaughtering fellow citizens. But I have tried to avoid thinking about the reality of what is likely to happen over the next five to ten years, as this Crisis turns from rhetoric and debate to violence and death. Keyboard warriors will yield to real warriors.

War Drums are Beating, by Hardscrabble Farmer

Our rulers cannot exercise what’s called full-spectrum dominance over us. From Hardscrabble Farmer at theburningplatform.com:

Biden's warning: To take on U.S. government “You'll need F-15s and maybe  nuclear weapons” | Police and Fire | stardem.com

Let’s focus for just one moment on something other than the hardware required to either impose a political solution to a problem or liberate a people from the oppression of a system that is intolerable and that is- what the military has always referred to as boots on the ground. It was learned, not long after the introduction of air campaigns in modern warfare, that bombing alone was not enough to defeat an enemy. In the end what was required was a presence in theater, a complete and absolute dominance of the territorial objectives by men on the terrain.

Can immense damage be inflicted on a population without the presence of infantry? Absolutely. Is that enough to defeat and enemy? Absolutely not.

There is simply no way for the current political class in power to exercise full spectrum dominance over the landmass and inhabitants of North America. They cannot manage the cities they have full control of, nor can they maintain supply lines and infrastructure in a fashion associated with an complex society. Everywhere you look you will see the decay and dissolution of systems built long ago by another people. If anything there has been an acceleration of the systemic failure of some of the simplest and easiest maintenance issues required to support a population the size of ours, from water and waste management to basic infrastructure, like bridges and roads.

Civil War 2.0 Weather Report: A Bridge Too Far? by John Wilder

A survey of the scene reveals that we’re pretty close to Civil War 2.0. From John Wilder at wilderwealthywise.com:

War, war, war!  This war talk’s spoiling all the fun at every party this spring. I get so bored I could scream!” – Gone With The Wind

No change this month.  We’ll see what February brings . . .

  1. Common violence. Organized violence is occurring monthly.
  2. Opposing sides develop governing/war structures. Just in case.
  3. Common violence that is generally deemed by governmental authorities as justified based on ideology.
  4. Open War.

We remain in the gray zone between step 9. and step 10.  I thought seriously about rolling back the clock to five minutes to midnight.  Violence is down, since the Left has seriously decided to clamp down on their useful idiots of BLM® and Antifa™.  The Right has (so far) not been any sort of a serious threat to anyone.  The hijinks that took place at the Capitol was closer to the football team painting something naughty on a water tower than any sort of real insurrection.

But then I reviewed the stories that I’m covering this issue.  Nope.  The Left wants to calm down the Far Left, but only so it can turn its full attention to the Right.  The pressure will continue.

The Right offers nothing to the Left.  It is comprised of nationalists – people who worry more about the nation than a group of foreigners.  The Right doesn’t hate the foreigners – it just worries about Americans first.  And the Right, more today than ever, worries about wanting a free capitalist system to make the lives of Americans better – not a free capitalist system for the sake of the system itself.
