Dear Red States…. We’ve decided we’re leaving. We intend to form our own country, we’re taking the other Blue States with us … that includes Hawaii, Oregon, California, New Mexico, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, and all the Northeast.Lanny Davis (tweet)
What should we think about prominent Democrats, like Lanny Davis, who want to divide America into two separate countries — along party lines?
In his Farewell Address, George Washington explained that union should be regarded as “the palladium” of our “political safety and prosperity….” Union is of such benefit, and disunion so harmful, he added, “there will always be reason to distrust the patriotism of those who in any quarter may endeavor to weaken its bands.”
In war, the subjection of the enemy is the end, and the destruction of his fighting forces the means.Carl von Clausewitz
Roger Cliff is the author of a recent study on the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), titled China’s Military Power: Assessing Current and Future Capabilities. Cliff says that modern wars are decided by strategy and doctrine. He also says China hides its military doctrine behind disinformation and secrecy.
We’ll give them a whiff of grapeshot.Napoleon Bonaparte
Some say the French Revolution turned a corner when Napoleon Bonaparte, on the 13th of Vendemaire (5 Oct.) 1795, ordered 40 cannons to open fire on an armed Paris mob of 30,000. The mob was coming to attack the National Convention at the Tuileries Palace. Between four hundred and a thousand “citizens” in the front ranks of the mob were mowed down by grapeshot and bullets. The mob fled in panic. Power in France remained with five men who, by 1799, gave way to one man — Napoleon.
It’s no use lying to ourselves. The state of California is no longer safe. Its government has assumed the likeness of something inimical. It is “progressive,” having turned to the “left.” It has put out the welcome mat for La Raza (UnidosUS), Antifa, and the People’s Liberation Army. The state appears to be run by Marxists. Should that surprise us? California’s business and political elites are tied to Beijing. San Francisco, with its many homeless encampments, is part Chinese colony and part liberal zoo. Meanwhile, Los Angeles is becoming a foreign city.
