Those are the usual arguments of people who … dread [using violence] … [and] so the fox always reasons – but not the lions; and that is the chief reason why the lion kills the fox in the end.”

Vilfredo Pareto, The Mind and Society, p. 1792

The French right-wing magazine, Valeurs Actuelles, published an open letter from twenty retired French generals last month. In essence, the generals charged the French government with being anti-French. Incredibly, this is a watershed for the West because the French generals are addressing a problem shared by other Western countries; for example, that the German government is anti-German, the Swedish government is anti-Swedish, and the U.S. Government is anti-American, etc.

One might ask how the French government became anti-French (and the U.S. Government became anti-American). The Italian political scientist, Vilfredo Pareto, had the answer. Pareto said that society is always ruled by an elite made up of two types: Lions and foxes. The lions are brave and the foxes are cunning. Everything goes well if the elite contains both types. However, if the lions are ostracized and the foxes begin dictating policy, everything becomes tainted with dishonesty, trickery, corruption, and cowardice; that is, the negative traits of the fox come into play and the system falls out of balance. That is, in fact, what has happened in the West.

In practice, the lions are the ones who confront a nation’s enemies – foreign and domestic. The lions uphold tradition, rules, and folkways. The foxes do not like anything that inhibits their cunning manipulations. Especially, they do not like confrontation. Their preference is always for compromise. In fact, foxes will argue that compromise is the best way to make money. However, there are things that should never be compromised – especially for money.

In this context, the letter of the retired French generals is best understood as a message sent by brave lions to cunning foxes. Here the French generals are writing to the President of France (a banker named Emmanuel Macron), the Government of France, and the Parliament of France. They begin as follows:

“The hour is grave. France is in danger. Several mortal perils threaten her. Even in retirement, we are still soldiers of France and cannot in the present circumstances remain indifferent to the fate of our beautiful country.”

“Our tricolor flags are not simply a piece of cloth. They symbolize the tradition, through the ages, of those who, regardless of their skin color or creed, have served France and have given their lives for her. On these flags, we find in gold letters the words ‘Honor and Country.’ Now, our honor today lies in denouncing the disintegration that is striking our country; a disintegration which, through a certain anti-racism, has only one goal: to create on our soil a malaise, even a hatred between communities. Today, some speak of racialism, nativism and decolonial theories, but through these terms it is the racial war that these hateful and fanatical partisans want. They despise our country, its traditions, its culture, and want to see it dissolve by tearing away its past and its history. Thus, they attack our statues related to our former military and civil glories, and by deconstructing centuries-old words.

“This is a disintegration which, with Islamism and the suburban hordes, leads to the detachment of territories which are then subjected to dogmas that are contrary to our Constitution. However, each Frenchman, whatever his belief or non-belief, should be at home everywhere in France. There cannot and must not exist any cities, any districts, where the laws of the Republic do not apply; a disintegration, as hatred has taken precedence over fraternity, during demonstrations, in which power uses the forces of order as auxiliaries and scapegoats in the face of French people in yellow vests, who express their despair. Meanwhile, hooded infiltrators vandalize businesses and threaten these same forces of order. As it happens, these forces are only applying the directives, sometimes contradictory, given by you, the government.

“The danger grows, the violence is increasing day-by-day. Who would have predicted ten years ago that a teacher would one day be beheaded at the entrance of his school? Now, we, the servants of the nation, who have always been ready to put our lives at risk – as our military status required – we cannot be passive spectators of such actions.

“Also, those who lead our country must find the necessary courage to eradicate these dangers. For this, it suffices to apply without weakness the remedy of existing laws. Do not forget that, like us, a great majority of our fellow citizens is fed up with your wavering and guilty silences.

“As Cardinal Mercier, Primate of Belgium, said: ‘When prudence is everywhere, courage is nowhere.’ So, ladies and gentlemen, enough procrastination! The hour is grave, the work is enormous; do not waste time. Know that we are ready to support the policies necessary to safeguard the nation.

“On the other hand, if nothing is undertaken, laxity will continue to spread inexorably throughout society, ultimately causing an explosion and the intervention of our active-duty comrades in a perilous mission to protect our civilization’s values, and to safeguard our compatriots on the national territory.

“We can see that it is no longer time to procrastinate, otherwise tomorrow civil war will put an end to this growing chaos; and the dead, for which you will be responsible, will be counted in thousands.”


The salient features of the generals’ letter bears repeating: First, the generals warn that France is in danger of disintegrating into chaos; second, France is demoralized because of “a certain anti-racism” which demonizes French culture and heritage; third, Islamism and Antifa are the enemy, pulling down statues of heroes and breaking off parts of the country into hostile enclaves; fourth, the leaders of France have not acted courageously, have not enforced the laws, refusing to confront the enemies of France; and fifth, if the leaders of the country continue to fail there will be a social explosion leading to civil war.

The government of France must be for France. If not, warned the generals, “our comrades” in the Army will be forced to undertake a “perilous mission to protect our civilization’s values.” The French generals are describing a situation that exists in all Western countries, including the United States. Here is the central problem of our time. And now, somebody has dared state the truth – to throw it in the face of a failing elite.  

And what is the reaction of the French government? Outrage and Indignation. Prime Minister Jean Castex, sometimes described as a “defender of the Catalan identity in Southern France,” said the generals’ letter was “contrary to all our republican principles….” He accused the generals of stirring up “hatred between communities” for the purpose of triggering a “race war.” Naturally, all the left-wing parties attacked the generals, whose letter was described as “incendiary” and “seditious.” In fact, the generals were accused of threatening a coup d’état. To have genuine and patriotic concern for France, it seems, is a crime. To speak the truth is sedition. Defending the country’s traditions and culture is considered dangerous.

The champions of France – the generals and lions – are repudiated by politically correct mewling. France does not need champions, say the foxes. Let the Muslims and communists burn our cathedrals. Let Sharia Law overtake our neighborhoods. Let Antifa pull down the statues of our heroes and loot our shops. We do not care about defending French culture! We only care that the wheel of commerce, of big business, continues to turn – with cheap Arab labor at the ready!

Florence Parly, Minister of the Armed Forces, threatened all soldiers who dare to sign the generals’ letter. In reaction to Parly’s bluster, 25,000 soldiers and citizens of France stepped forward, adding their names to support the generals. Even more telling, an opinion poll revealed that 58 percent of French respondents “support the words of the soldiers,” and 49 percent think the military should intervene without the government’s permission.  

The French elite – the foxes – are committing suicide; for they cannot defend themselves from Islam. They cannot defend themselves from Antifa. And they despise their own champions – the Army of France, the elder generals of France. Meanwhile, the banker and French President, Emmanuel Macron, watches the ongoing controversy from his exalted position as Head of State. He dispatches his lackey, General François Lecointre, to quash this unwelcome outburst from the twenty retired generals. But Macron is mistaken if he thinks General Lecointre can scare lions into obedience. Lecointre knows only one sound, and that is the characteristic meow of a house cat, transcribed by Le Figaro into an empty threat against active-duty generals. Consider then, the response of General Christian Piquemal, one-time leader of the French Foreign Legion:

“Open letter to Army General François LECOINTRE Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces (CEMA) Friday, April 30, 2021


“You are the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces and as such your first obligation is to defend and support active or retired military personnel. Obviously, you prefer a witch hunt.

“By your servile and unfailing intellectual ministrations, your appalling careerism, your lamentable submission to political power, you do the opposite [of your duty] and are ready, out of complacency and meanness, to cut off the head of all your peers and elders. How lamentable!

“As you know, the duty of a leader worthy of the name is to protect his subordinates, his brothers-in-arms, his elders – instead of delivering them to the vindictiveness of a political power that has been cornered.

“No doubt you are afraid to displease the Minister of the Armed Forces that you serve with unparalleled zeal and low-crawling behavior!

“Being at the top of the military hierarchy what are you waiting for? The stars of a Marshal of France?

“It is far from the time of June; De Lattre, Leclerc, Bigeard adored their men – and spoke on an equal footing with political power. Instead, your moral authority only serves to put your knee on the ground and your little finger on the seam of your pants. Do you still have a little bit of pride left?

“Like many French and military personnel, I have a huge disdain for you.

“Yes, I was disbarred from the [military] executive by decree of the President of the Republic on August 23, 2016 following the opinion of the Supreme Council of the Army (CSAT) disciplinary board (6 active general officers having, by majority of votes, requested my dismissal from the executive); but I do not regret anything. Faced with the failure to respect the rule of law in Calais, I was a whistleblower who demanded the state change the situation from that of the jungle.

“You dared to write in Le Figaro, concerning me: ‘I will send him a letter to tell him that he is unworthy, [that he] soils the army, weakens it by making it an object of national controversy.’

“My general, do not wear yourself out, do not waste time writing, I will not even [glance at it]. The one who soils the army is you, only you, make no mistake. The French, who know it, have chosen their side and are not mistaken.

“Yes, I’d rather be in my own skin than in yours. The opinion and judgment of your peers and subordinates are not flattering, and that is an understatement! I can look at myself in the mirror, but I’m afraid you cannot.

“You prefer to “cut heads,” sanction peers, bend the spine and serve political power with unparalleled zeal. No, on the day of your departure you will not be missed.

“Finally, I will remind you of two quotes that perfectly illustrate your behavior!

“’When caution is everywhere, courage is nowhere.’ – Cardinal Mercier.

“’In France, those who set the fire are allowed to escape while those who sound the alarm are persecuted.’ – Nicolas de Chamfort

“With your submission and your servility to political power, your behavior is more that of a technocrat than a soldier. The true disgrace of a general is yours.

“With my deepest contempt.

“Lieutenant General (ER) Christian Piquemal

nor stands it safe with us to let his madness range

Some readers will feast on General Piquemal’s words, as if they contained nourishment. His letter belongs to another century. So starved are we, at this late hour, for courage and directness, that such words send a thrill through the despairing multitude. We are tired of dubious narratives and empty slogans. We are worn out with euphemisms like “multiculturalism” and “social justice.” And here comes a lion who despises euphemisms. He is not dissuaded by threats. The government has already removed him from the military executive. It has stripped him of his honors. Yet he gains honor by it. The crisis now intensifies. The government loses support. The President of France has less and less to say.   

You may ask, “Who will win in this contest between lions and foxes?” Pareto assures us that “the lion will kill the fox in the end.” Soothing words and cunning promises have lost their effect. “Today,” noted Pareto, “[the elite] makes prostrate obeisance to the Radical-Socialists. As long as the profits are there it cares little what flag covers the goods.” Thus, the elite class would sell out its own national security to turn a profit. They would sell war-winning technology to the Red Chinese. They would sell American uranium to Russia even though this sale is a “clear and present danger” to America. The elite would – and already has – made a deal with Iran, so that Iran can use weapons against our soldiers purchased with the $150 billion Obama gave them! Consider, as well, the example of Bernard L. Schwartz, Chairman of the Board and CEO of Loral Space & Communications, who was accused of transferring advanced technology to communist China in 1996. Later the company acknowledged “the nature and seriousness of the offenses alleged … including the risk of harm to the security and foreign policy interests of the United States.” The company agreed to make amends through the payment of restitution. But that was only because they were caught.

President Calvin Coolidge once said, “The business of America is business.” But this saying has been taken too far. The captains of finance are, indeed, are a vital part of the West’s economic life. But the economic function, having displaced society’s defenders, is incapable of taking up the defensive role on its own behalf. The political understanding of the money power, being one-sided, does not take seriously the imperatives of war. Money’s imperative is the preservation of peace at all costs. After this fashion, peace produces its own special form of bankruptcy.   

Doesn’t the French government – or the government in Washington, D.C. – understand this? No. Is the French government incompetent? No. As Pareto explained, “The government follows [its] course not from ineptitude, but because like all governments in the civilized countries of today, it represents speculators [i.e., financial interests], and can follow no other course. Speculators want quiet above all else, for quiet is what they need to carry on their profitable enterprises; and quiet they are ready to buy at any price. They are interested in the present and worry little about the future, not in the least scrupling to sacrifice their champions to the wrath of the adversary.”

The plutocrats – the foxes – will try to paper over, with crisp new bills, every irreconcilable enmity; that is, the enmity of militant Islam, of China’s red imperialism, of Vladimir Putin’s new Russia, and La Trahison Des Clercs. The plutocrats may set music to the mewling chorus of General Leointre, Minister Parly, and Prime Minister Castex; but the orchestra will not play the fox’s music because France will not attend. Her people are going over to the counter-revolution.

One of the Mayors of Paris, who was raised as a devout Muslim by Algerian immigrant parents, agrees with the French generals. “What is written in [their] letter is a reality,” said Mayor Rachida Dati of Paris’ 7th arrondissement. “When you have a country plagued by urban guerrilla warfare, when you have a constant and high terrorist threat … we cannot say that the country is doing well.” According to Dati, who once served as Justice Minister under President Nicolas Sarkozy, “The police have become a target for terrorists…. I am afraid that the police will break down one day. And if they crack, we go well beyond the disintegration of society.”

Mayor Dati is not exaggerating. She has stared into the abyss. She sees the end of the present dispensation. One needs only to look at New York City, or Minneapolis, or Portland Oregon, to recognize that America also faces disintegration (under the auspices of a senile president). France has an advantage over America, however, because France has found real lions while America is sunk in political fantasy and an appalling succession of cultish delusions. France’s counter-revolutionaries have always been political realists. For 200 years they have been right in almost all their apprehensions and predictions. They know that modernity is but a research laboratory for the destruction of mankind. Americans, in contrast, have forgotten their counter-revolutionary traditions (discoverable in the persons of George Washington, John Adams and Alexander Hamilton).

Mayor Dati and the French generals see what is coming. Americans do not yet share this clear-sighted view. It is worth noting that the pandemic has served as an accelerant in this matter; yet this accelerant is not a cause but a reflexive effect. Here again, the foxes have done their work. (The French built China’s Wuhan bioweapons lab, the Americans funded the virus). A great crash is coming. The economies of the developed world are weakening. The final crisis is almost upon us. In his book, The Counter-Revolution, Thomas Molnar said “that the counter-revolutionary moves to seize power only when the situation has degenerated to the critical point.” [p.136] Here we find the explanation for the extreme passivity of our counter-revolutionary lions. A “clear and present danger,” added Molnar, “is alone capable of mobilizing counter-revolutionaries.”

In France, the day of the fox is almost done.

Thomas Molnar, The Counter-Revolution (New York: Funk & Wagnalls, 1969), p. 136. Molnar makes the following point regarding the onset of counter-revolution: “The suddenness and unexpectedness of the move creates the impression of violence and terror, which has the effect of silencing the revolutionary media, or at least confusing them, making them less sure of themselves…. This phenomenon could be well observed in France in 1958: everybody had been aware for years of the agony of the system, of the Fourth Republic….” It is only obvious that the “agony” of the Fifth Republic has begun. In this context, one should never forget what was done to the Paris Commune of 1871.

118 thoughts on “When the Lion Kills the Fox: Or, When Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

  1. Indeed this is nothing that a Joseph de Maistre, a Juan Donoso Y Cortes, or a Charles Maurras could not have foreseen concerning France and the West, for they did. But one might risk misunderstanding the import of what Pareto is saying, because the larger spiritual crisis of the West looms greater in more perceptive eyes, an answer to which crisis the gentlemen I mentioned had no answer to.

    I may suggest though that Pareto’s Aesopian fable is not peculiar to the West and it’s problems, and that there are Lions and Foxes universally. During the ”Time of Troubles” (after the death of Tsars Ivan Grozny and then Boris Godunov) of the early 1600’s Russia was plagued by the ”Semiboyarshina”, or ”Seven Boyars”, who were as bad a den of Foxes as can be imagined, they having invited the Poles and Swedes to occupy the land…. But ”Lions” arose from the people in the form of the butcher from Novgorod Kuzma Minin and the Prince Pozharsky, who drove the invaders out…. I would like to say that the Lions ruled thereafter, but one of the Seven Boyars sons was elected Tsar in 1612, Mikhail Romanov, and Foxiness became a regular feature of political existence under that Dynasty for over 300 years, in my opinion.

    The World needs Lions, but Lions will assuredly come from somewhere should the West fail to produce and nurture them.

    1. Of course, as you say, Pareto sympathized with counter-revolution without believing in tradition or having any faith himself. A grim view. Le Bon was also like this, yet hated the Revolution. Dostoyevsky, after flirting with revolutionary ideas, understood the essence of atheistic communism and was at once converted to Orthodoxy and loyalty to the Tsar. It is curious to see the two types of anti-Revolutionaries. History does appear to follow the fable of lions and foxes, whether in Russia or the West. Pareto derived it from Machiavelli’s “Prince,” and turned into an actual formula — with equations and more. Even Jungian psychology took aspects of this seriously.

      1. Well put. And indeed, Charles Maurras also whom I mentioned before was a Non-Believer too, an odd case there, but surely correct in his ”Integralism” for the most part. Most thoughtful men from East or West or any other cardinal direction I believe go through an extended moment or two of enchantment (I use the word in it’s non-romantic meaning) with Revolutionary Socialism, because it is a temptation after all to want to remake the world, a ”Titanism” as Berdaeyev called it. What divides such enthralled men (in my opinion) is not so much the Fox/Lion divide, as the humble/the proud divide. Whatever my sympathies, I cannot become a Jacobin and change the world. In this we see however how revolutions fail, the refusal of the more honest Lions to take part in the revolution’s machinery…. Much like the French Officers you mention in your essay. Only what is organic and natural survives of the decaying revolutions (including the American?), and that’s where the Lions and the Foxes come in particularly, I think. The feast afterwards. Like him or not, Tsar Ivan ”the Terrible” was a Lion, but we have not seen his like in a very long time-and the comparisons with the sly and cunning, and well, ”foxy” Stalin fall rather short in my view.

        Perhaps I’m meandering with these extended metaphors, but it reminds me of something that proves to me that the original thinkers of counter-revolution were quite wrong. Joseph de Maistre once wrote that counter-revolution is ”the opposite of revolution” in every way. That no White Terror was necessary to replace the Red Terror. While not being a ”Jacobin of the Right”, I am not convinced that this shrinking from Counter-Revolutionary severity should be a universal general rule. My reason lies more with what you hinted at with Dostyoevsky and his Anti-Revolutionary views, because he saw with Revolution an entire Modern Metaphysics from which only a profound shock of the most severe kind can shake a man from it (of those in his circle to be hanged but then spared execution literally at the last minute, one man went permanently mad and Dostyoevsky suffered epileptic fits the rest of his life).

        I personally am not a Revolutionary of any kind, because I cannot square that with praying for ”right believing kings and queens” and so forth… While being at peace with all men as much as possible and obeying all the authorities wherever and whoever they are in all things except commands to sin. I think it’s the only true path out of the Revolutionary era, excepting the rise of Lions in the future.

      2. Yes. Dostoyevski saw inside of the psychology of revolutionaries, intellectually and spiritually. In the Devils, in Crime and Punishment, and in the Idiot — seeing inside the murderer’s heart. He saw with one eye on redemption, Without judging; yet with fully seeing. Not easy to do. People moralize without understanding. That is easy, but misses the whole thing. You cannot avoid falling into a hole unless you really see that hole. Some of us are touched in different ways. We get lucky in our early choices, or we learn from others. The thing is, human beings are slow learners. We lack truthfulness about ourselves; especially when you consider the temptations to grandiosity, feeling sorry for yourself, nihilism and despair. If you don’t give in to these things you can begin to see where it takes some people. You begin to realize who the revolutionaries are. Of course, that does not mean counter-revolutionaries are nice people either. Jacob Burckhardt said that “power is evil.” He was right. You mentioned Ivan the Terrible, who was certainly powerful. One should imagine the scoundrels he had to deal with. “Never ask the wolves to help you against the dogs.” So what happens when you have to become a wolf yourself? What does God say? What is allowed? Simplistic moral rules are necessary, but they are not the whole truth. And there are various levels, various grades and types. Always, there is a darkness there. We all have to struggle in our own way toward the light (if you will excuse a trite metaphor).

      3. “The thing is, human beings are slow learners. We lack truthfulness about ourselves; especially when you consider the temptations to grandiosity, feeling sorry for yourself, nihilism and despair. If you don’t give in to these things you can begin to see where it takes some people”

        “You begin to realize who the revolutionaries are. Of course, that does not mean counter-revolutionaries are nice people either.”

        BRILLIANT, BRAVO, and so very very true.

  2. I think that you are right when you say that ”power is evil”, as well, at least human power in this fallen world. This requires power to be diffuse and consensual in the real world, no matter the formal governmental structure and in keeping with the comments you make about ”simplistic moral rules” and ”various levels, various grades and types”. Pretty hard to have an effective tyranny when persons in a certain society have deliberately evolved over a few centuries to be about as anarchistic (but non-hyperindividualistic) as can be imagined;

    (using the illustration in particular of the fairy tale about Emelya and the Pike)

    Concerning the Russian ”cultural code’ of innovation and resistance;

    Dostyoevsky once famously writing that man would never consent to be a ‘piano key’;

    ”Even if man were nothing but a piano key, even if this were proved to him by natural science and mathematics, even then he would not become reasonable, but would purposely do something perverse out of sheer ingratitude, simply to have his own way…then, after all, perhaps only by his curse will he attain his object, that is, really convince himself that he is a man and not a piano key! ”

    And in this we have our key God-given weapon in ”struggling towards the light”; our existential freedom (consider contra this view, that all the Western counter-revolutionaries like Joseph de Maistre were very Augustinian, more Augustinian than Blessed Augustine in fact, and thus very deterministic to a degree; this is why Western counter-revolution fails so far in my opinion). This brings me back to the theme you mentioned; of redemption, of seeing without judging, which defies all worldly human systems.

    Obviously the cultural code of the Chinese, in the context of what we’re speaking of (Communism as a metaphysics, and resistance to it) is another story altogether however from that of the Russian….It’s telling that the Bolsheviks won the Civil War in part because of the hundreds of thousands of Chinese and Muslim Asiatic soldiers who flocked into the ranks of the new Red Army, something little known in the West.

    1. The Anglo-Saxon world of thought, in terms of divine order and counter-revolution, has never quite found it’s way. We have Milton, Shakespeare and the King James Bible, of course. But these are now too highbrow for people who grew up with The Simpsons — who now watch YouTube and Netflix. In terms of our actual culture, one finds it by juxtaposing C.S. Lewis with Charles Manson. We find, here, a mentality that relates to Lord of the Rings (written by Lewis’s friend) and Timothy Leary (or even Aleister Crowley) at the same time. I used to have conversations with an old radical on the street in California — a man born in Mussolini’s Italy before the war and raised in Eureka — who personally knew all the famous beatniks and was buddies with Charles Manson in the 60s. This guy hated America and Americans with a passion; yet he was so very American. He used to say, “Charlie Manson was not a bad guy.” He would then add, “I don’t know what happened to Charlie.” The twisted old fellow thought all later “hipsters” were frauds. He, of course, was a genuine hipster. Make no mistake. He’d been to the promised land of Haight-Ashbury. He followed the Manson trial, at the time, with visits to the law library. It became such a habit with him, that in advanced old age the women who ran the county law library knew him as a “regular.” The particulars of his deeply perverted nature were akin to the comic figure of Gomez Adams of “Adams Family” fame. Only his iteration of counter-culture perversity was too unwittingly evil to be funny. He was a painfully thin, unkempt, old man, who wore socks with hippy sandals, lived in a rundown hotel on Fifth Street — with a broken sign and plenty of heroin addicts, schizophrenics and the occasional sufferer from demonopathy. Here one catches a wink from the seedy side of self-destruction. This is where folks have somehow progressed from being piano keys to urinating on the street. Have such people ever taken their own souls seriously? Have they ever honored anything? They were kin to Pavlov’s unfortunate dogs, salivating over psychedelics when the bell rang. Instead of making a Soviet Republic out of such people, we find only the California Republic, with a bear and a red star on its flag. Let us rejoice that the Revolution — in Russia or California — has always failed. The only downside has been the cost in human degradation. The counter-revolutionary sees all this. Insofar as counter-revolution in the West is animated by a conception of order, we find such figures as the French generals; Franco and Salazar; Richard Weaver and Eric Voegelin. Yet their sense of order — so very Catholic — actually goes back to the ancient Greeks and Egyptians. But these old sources of thought are lost or have been absorbed by Christianity. One detects an unfailing sense of this order in Catholic Spain, in the French generals, in the writings of Olavo de Carvalho. The English-speaking world has had trouble here. We find an unusual case in Thomas Carlyle — a most uncharacteristic counter-revolutionary, who showed the dilemma of the English-speaking world in refusing to rely on a “system” to conceive of order. It is characteristic that the English gave us such self-contradictory figures as Cromwell, Marlborough, Churchill and Queen Elizabeth II. English history, as opposed to American history, is strewn with such impossible points of departure as the English Civil War, the Glorious Revolution, the Second World War and the 1960s. The Americans had the history of Washington, the self-contradictory exemplar Jefferson, the greatness of Lincoln, and then the downward pull of Lincoln’s egalitarian demagogy. After 1865 the machinery of the Republic slid gradually, unwittingly, into Jacobinism, imperialism, feminism, consumerism and full-fledged nihilism. The Muslims and Asiatics who won the Russian Civil War for the Bolsheviks are here now, securing their beachheads for American Civil War II. Redemption and counter-revolution — as concepts — do not even peek out from this equation. One finds a desert of thought and spirit here, except in the furthest reaches of self-searching and self-help — buried in an enormous pile of muck, guarded by a dingy tinfoil hat-wearing UFO alien.

      1. Jeff, can you clarify the last fragment in the last sentence in your reply? thanks:
        “One finds a desert of thought and spirit here, except in the furthest reaches of self-searching and self-help — buried in an enormous pile of muck, guarded by a dingy tinfoil hat-wearing UFO alien.”

      2. Almost all mainstream books, written from the standpoint of the prevailing “scientific atheism,” are dull and lacking spirit.

      3. Heh, I have known men such as you describe, as they wear their peculiar foulness like a uniform. Knew a woman who knew Manson and his bunch back in California… Such wasted lives.

        Do you read Kierkegaard? These are the people mired in what he described as ”the sickness unto death”, specifically in that these types are desperately sick spiritually, but so much so that they no longer know that they are. Such is the soil of the modern revolutionary; life being a mere parenthesis between Nothing and Nothing, and having this brief time in which to live, they devote their time to doing absolutely whatever they will. And an ersatz religion like Marxist Leninism at least covers a thin veneer over the nihilism, provides life with some meaning to an Atheist. But so too could the UFO/Alien phenomena, environmentalism, and so on, to a lesser degree. It’s pretty dreary, as you say a bit of a decline from even being a ”Piano Key”.

        I think it’s because the lack of time, the literal lack of time, that Revolution fails, more than anything else. I speak of course of the Western style Atheism, as that of the Far East is profoundly different while even more Demonic (Milton’s insight that Satan is an Atheist of sorts, revealed in ‘Paradise Lost’, is helpful here).

        As you say, the counter-revolutionary sees all this and possesses a conception of order. The trick is, having such a conception of order, that Leonine conception of Tradition, that is sufficient to not only stop but to even reverse the Red Wheel of ”Progress”. It’s possible in light of this that I have a slightly modified conception of the ”Golitsyn Thesis” in my worldview, then, thanks to you over this long period, that posits China as the fountainhead and center of International Communism (and the Strategic Deception that undergirds it’s probable future triumph over much of the world), with a nod also to the possibility that Islam, full of the Revolutionary spirit but not hobbled by Atheism’s despair, is better poised for victory. Either way, they work together and always have. The likely ace in the hole being the nuclear forces of the Chinese available to them relative to the power of Islam…

        The way I see it, to return to the original metaphor in the article, ”Strategic Deception” of Modern Civilization is not only a possibility, but a certainty given the rule of Foxes and not Lions. The rulers of the Modern world literally cannot see their demise, because they cannot see the logic and inevitability of nuclear war based on the assumption that it is impossible and unwinnable in any case (After all, why would anyone risk their wealth and their lives? They think). Other minds believe not, have reconciled themselves to the hard and even heartless choices.

      4. Yes, indeed. What you point to stems from a profound failure of imagination (combined with self-absorption). What we unwittingly do — again and again — is assume that others think as we do. Listen carefully to what that other fellow is saying. Ask yourself if you would ever say such a thing. If not, then you might be dealing with a different human type — a different mental subspecies; that is, someone who eschews those deeper insights into morality and goodness on which our civilization depends. He may not have a moral compass at all. The gulf between you, then, may be unbridgeable. It may be that you cannot safely coexist with him, and he may be aware of this before you are. He may, indeed, be like a serial killer who pretends to be religious, but is inwardly laughing at those he is taking in (like Ted Bundy). Meanwhile, you stupidly go your way thinking all is well with the world. What grief some of us have experienced on looking into the troubled “soul” of political fanatics. We would take pity on them, but they might never return the favor. Imagine meeting the young Hitler in a Vienna coffee shop in 1908. You might be amused by this lively teenage character as you listen, failing to hear that murderous clang of a prison door shutting at the end of an off-hand remark. Not all men are safe to coexist with. Even with a border between you, that border may not stop him as he pulls it down. In Russia a system that once elevated ambitious psychopaths now struggles to adjust itself, inwardly unsure of itself, having lost the benefit of Stalin’s murderous genius. The Kremlin gang nonetheless strives for dominance. The Chinese communists, who once looked up to the Kremlin, are determined to never lose that tight control for the sake of “reforms.” Russia may become a normal country again. It all hangs in the balance. Yet China’s ruling party is ready to lead the way through a violent break. Will they do so now? The counter-revolution is the unknown factor here, and Europe may be nearing a crossroad. Impossible to guess how this unfolds.

      5. Dear Jeff!
        Regarding Europe, I think Germany will play an important role. And there is interesting news there. Hans-Georg Maaßen, we should possibly pay attention to that name in the future. He served as the President of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV – Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz) from 2012 to 2018. Maaßen was now selected as the Christian Democratic Union’s (CDU) candidate for the constituency of Suhl – Sonneberg in the 2021 German federal election.ßen
        Maaßen had claimed in some interviews that after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the West CDU was infiltrated by the East CDU.
        His interview for the epochtimes is very interesting, especially following part:
        (from min. 25:10)
        Translation of the “important part”:
        “There were enough defectors from the KGB, from the Romanian secret service, from the Czechoslovak secret service, who always warned that there would basically be a quiet revolution after the Cold War, where the communists would then come to power. People didn’t want to perceive it.”

        Since being nominated for election, he has faced the usual accusations (far-right, etc.).
        Maaßen was more or less booted from his post as president of the BfV by Merkel in 2018. The background to this was the alleged protests in Chemnitz.
        Maaßen caused further controversy following the 2018 Chemnitz protests, during which it appeared an angry mob had “hunted” foreign-looking people. In an interview with Bild (newspaper), Maaßen questioned whether there was any credible evidence for such “hunts”, and stated that his security agency had in fact not seen any such evidence.
        The video that was supposed to prove the alleged Chemnitz protests was uploaded by Antifa and picked up by the German MSM. The full video excerpts later showed that Maaßen was right (but kept quiet by the MSM). The whole thing is likely to have been a trap by Merkel and Co.
        Maaßen should know the background of the communist long-term strategy. He is absolutely critical of Putin. Very interesting.

      6. “The Anglo-Saxon world of thought, in terms of divine order and counter-revolution, has never quite found it’s way. We have Milton, Shakespeare and the King James Bible, of course. But these are now too highbrow for people who grew up with The Simpsons — who now watch YouTube and Netflix. In terms of our actual culture, one finds it by juxtaposing C.S. Lewis with Charles Manson. We find, here, a mentality that relates to Lord of the Rings (written by Lewis’s friend) and Timothy Leary (or even Aleister Crowley) at the same time.”

        This is as brilliant a summary of our culture as I have ever heard.

  3. So someone that takes the UFO phenomenon seriously is lumped in with muck? As if someone cant both grasp the truth of what you write about and consider the UFO issue? I must not understand this metaphor properly.

    1. I did not say anything about people who believe in UFOs. What I implied was that self help books and UFO researchers are culturally head and shoulders above woke Marxists.

      1. Ok. Complex metaphor there. Thanks for dumbing it down. 🙂

    2. If I may, I am of the mind to think that there is the ”UFO Phenomenon”, and then there is the ”UFO Religion”, something distinct from the former and yet pushed upon us all by curiously interested, biased, and fanatical parties. It is based on a chain of assumptions that are regarded as truth, much as Marxist-Leninism and other systems of Modern belief are.

      1. Many cults and religions are based on supernatural phenomenon. UFOs may be another case in point. When you do not know what something is, you need to be careful in assessing it. There are many strange phenomena referred to in history (by ancient historians, especially). There are people who are now trying to contact “higher” intelligences — aliens, spirits, the dead. This might be more than a little dangerous, given the vast and worrisome literature on the subject (which describes those who have been injured or psychologically harmed by such “contact”). There are scientists trying to study the paranormal, and there is a literature going back many centuries that warns us of dangers. Scientists, of course, stick to experiments in which measurements predominate. UFOologists — like Jacques Vallee — have nonetheless noticed a connection between UFO-related phenomena and the paranormal. The discoveries made by researchers in this area bizarrely tend toward metaphor, toward meta-logical understandings, and dream-like encounters with benevolent and malevolent intelligences. As John A. Keel once said, “Demonology is not just another crackpot ology.” In Karla Turner’s book, “Masquerade of Angels,” we are taken on a very frightening biographical journey through the life of a man afflicted by demonic entities connected with UFOs. These are trying — over many years — to claim his soul. At one point in the story the poor man checks himself into a psychiatric hospital. This story, and many like it, present a frightening encounter with evil. I do not believe science has any explanations for this. Parapsychology is an attempt at scientific study of precognition, telepathy, telekinesis, etc. But scientists do not seem prepared to study evil. Consequently, exorcists may have something more to offer. At university I got to know a parapsychologist named Mark who shared with me some of his more bizarre experiences. Mark was one of the scientists who tested Uri Geller’s abilities in the 1970s. He definitely believed that Geller had inexplicable talents. He had some very strange stories he would not even share with his colleagues. I asked how his experiences with Geller could be explained? He honestly said there was no explanation. The universe is a mystery and man is only at the beginning of knowing anything. It is the smug materialism of our time that denies the spiritual and miraculous aspects of life. Marxism is the political side of this denial. One might say that Marxism is materialism applied to politics. Here we have to be extra careful when bringing up UFOs because of the political use such a topic might have in the wrong hands. It would not be unthinkable for the communists to exploit hopes of salvation from ET visitors, merging such narratives with revolutionary socialist narratives. They could use a false interpretation of the UFO phenomenon to damage our religious traditions. To qualify what I am suggesting, it is not my position that there aren’t intelligent animals on other planets. So what if there are? However, the expectation of contact with a superior civilization could be used in various ways. The idea itself has become powerful and people may be manipulated by it. What is most disturbing here, once again, is the paranormal aspect of the phenomenon. A cautionary note is in order.

      2. I also recommend Jeffrey Mishlove, who has a show on YouTube where he interviews parapsychologists like your Mark. Mishlove wrote the book “The PK Man,” a book about another Geller-like character who claimed to possess powers obtained from a relationship with UFOs. He could predict when UFOs would appear, demonstrated strange powers over the weather and other elements of nature, and even claimed he could make his preferred team win in the Superbowl, if memory serves. Mishlove has a few videos on the PK Man if you’re not in the mood to find and read the book.

        I’ll also add, Dr. Steven Greer summons UFOs on a regular basis just with meditation. I can’t imagine any technology that could detect the “loving” thoughts of a bunch of elderly hippies, the sorts of people who go to Greer’s meditation outings.

        A friend of mine claims he attempted Greer’s methods while on a camping trip. He didn’t see any UFOs, but he did hear intense growling that sounded like a cross between a wolf and a snake coming from the dark of the woods around him. It was not an enjoyable experience for him.

      3. Mr. Nyquist, ad: “it is not my position that there aren’t intelligent animals on other planets”. I doubt you consider yourself an animal. So according to you ETs are inferior to humans, unable to travel in space and not active on this planet at the moment?

  4. Covid spike protein itself damages cardiovascular system. Salk Institute study last Friday. Potential problem in that our vaccines cause the body to make loads of these spike proteins.

  5. I’m aware of all the things you’ve mentioned. And agree. I think UFOs are demonic fallen angel activity after decades of study. I think it’s going to be great deception that decieves all but the elect into worshiping the AC. Some serious PHD biblical scholars agree.
    You’ve had some great metaphors. I like the one about the ice rat consuming the corpse of fallen ideologies with his own powerful digestive juices of yet another ideology in OOTFWW.

      1. These aren’t preconceptions. Rather carefully concluded conceptions including personal exp. I suggest you dig into what top Vatican astro physicts, head of Vorg, Chief excorist of Rome and top theologians in RC have to say on the matter. Gabriel Funes, Tanzelanetti Balducci In their own words they are saying that Ufos and aliens are likely coming to evangelize us. I know this isn’t the focus of your work and don’t want to derail your comments section. Tom Horn has interviewed several of them. What they are saying is shocking. Check his book Exovaticana.

  6. Hmm, I must be slow on the draw at times, but I find the subtitle of your essay even more interesting than at first glance, the; ”Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead”. For I note that the entertainment industry and creative Foxy types tended to prove their identification with them with plays and movies;

    What better way to spiritually defecate on notions of dishonor, treason and complicity in evil, and just punishment for the same, than absurdist dreck?

    1. I use three quotations as headers from Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead” is a line from the play, referring to the execution of two false friends of Hamlet. Their death is announced near the end of the play. They were agents of the play’s fox, King Claudius (Hamlet’s uncle), who had stolen the crown. Each of my other two subheadings are also quotations from Hamlet. The play itself is about a lion trying to overcome a fox — and who kills the fox in the end.

      1. So a segment of French society is not ready to give up. Groups of retired generals have done this before, but never have so many active military joined them. I used to enjoy your interviews with Allan dos Santos. I can’t read Portuguese, but I see he is still active. Bolsonaro also doesn’t strike me as a man who will willingly curl up and die.

      2. Yes, Bolsonaro is a fighter. The situation in Brazil is quite confused, due to the pandemic and it’s economic fallout. It is hard to analyze the situation without making mistakes. We have not asked ourselves what the Chinese intention was when the virus was released. How we answer this question is decisive for future policy and strategy. Yet no such policy has been proposed. The world is confused. The communists around the world have diverted many people with their false narratives and attacks on traditional culture. Now they push their nonsense to the point of disintegrating society. A reaction has been engendered, but nobody is doing anything in America. France is showing some spine and will be an interesting case from which we can draw lessons.

      3. Yes, and I’m glad that in a few bright spots in the West such as your own commentary regarding these type of fools, the message of Shakespeare and others is not obscured. He was one of the greats to be sure, although I prefer John Milton personally. I share his philosophical Monism (which goes back to the Church Father Tertullian) but of his works actually like ”Samson Agonistes” the best. I’m certain there’s some political commentary hidden in there.

  7. In Brazil they will want to repeat the experience that defeated Trump, with electoral fraud. At the moment when conservatives in the National Congress are voting to have the impression of voting at the electronic ballot box, it is the only chance that Bolsonaro will be reelected, he has popular strength to be elected in the first round. All other candidates are directly or indirectly controlled by the Communists. The communists have already announced that if they go back they will radicalize the “communization” of Brazil, as it was in Venezuela.

  8. Yes. From what I deduce from your writings and from our conservative correspondents in the USA, in relation to Brazil, we have an advantage in relation to the USA, the common citizen here is more attentive, and they are anti-communists, the communists here manipulate the most intellectualized, because control of universities in the last 50 years.

    1. When I met Bolsonaro in New York a few years ago, I was very impressed with the many Brazilian activists that came to support him. It was obvious that they have a good spirit in them, which Americans lack. I knew they would succeed in electing Bolsonaro because of this. They really did not believe me when I told them they had something special. Sometimes a foreigner can see things a native cannot.

      1. It seems to me that Bolsonaro is in a very dangerous position and needs to take the threat posed by communism more seriously, or else he might suffer the same fate as Trump. Olavo outlined several measures he ought to take to stifle the success of the communists in Brazil, one of which is the outlawing of all communism-affiliated parties (which can be legally done since, if I’m not mistaken, Brazilian law prohibits a party to be affiliated with an international organization, i.e. the Foro de Sao Paulo). It seems that Bolsonaro has ignored Olavo’s advice. When dealing with communists one has to assume a wartime mentality.

  9. Mr Nyquist, I cannot say that I was the one who sent you that link concerning Stalin and Hamlet’s Shakespeare. Considering his own family’s dynamic of Stalin’s father being an abusive alcoholic who beat him and his mother (a devout Orthodox Christian, I might add), and the psychological structure of the Hamlet play itself though, it makes a dark kind of sense that Stalin would ban it, for personal reasons though probably obscure even to himself.

    I think that the Lord has mercy on deeply humiliated children. In adulthood though, we have duties and responsibilities to try to love one another.

    Exclusive] Sign the new military forum
    For a few days, the rumor had been running that a new military platform was going to be unveiled. Coming from active soldiers, it supports the one previously published on the site of Current values . This text, which is already circulating a lot and which the media echo, we have decided to publish it this evening. And to open it, at the bottom of this platform, for the signature of French citizens who would find it up to the challenges that are ours. While continuing, with a demanding methodology, to make ourselves available to military professionals who wish to take part. Like the previous one, the purpose of this forum is not to undermine our institutions but to alert people to the gravity of the situation.
    Posted on May 9, 2021 at 10:18 p.m. Updated on May 10, 2021 at 10:12 p.m.

    Mr. President of the Republic,

    Ladies and Gentlemen, Ministers, Members of Parliament, General Officers, in your ranks and qualities,

    We no longer sing the seventh verse of the Marseillaise, known as the “children’s verse”. Yet it is rich in lessons. Let us leave it to him to lavish them on us:

    “We will enter the quarry when our elders are no longer there. We will find their dust there, and the traces of their virtues. Much less jealous of surviving them than of sharing their coffin, we will have the sublime pride of avenging them or of following them ”

    Our seniors are fighters who deserve to be respected. These are for example the old soldiers whose honor you have trampled on in recent weeks. It is these thousands of servants of France, signatories of a platform of common sense, soldiers who gave their best years to defend our freedom, obeying your orders, to wage your wars or to implement your budget restrictions. , which you soiled while the people of France supported them.
    These people who fought against all the enemies of France, you have treated them as factious when their only fault is to love their country and to mourn its visible downfall.

    Under these conditions, it is up to us, who have recently entered the career, to enter the arena simply to have the honor of telling the truth.

    We are what the newspapers have called “the fire generation”. Men and women, active soldiers, of all armies and of all ranks, of all sensibilities, we love our country. These are our only claims to fame. And if we cannot, by law, express ourselves with our face uncovered, it is just as impossible for us to be silent.

    Afghanistan, Mali, the Central African Republic or elsewhere, a number of us have experienced enemy fire. Some have left comrades there. They offered their skin to destroy the Islamism to which you are making concessions on our soil.

    Almost all of us have known Operation Sentinel. We saw with our own eyes the abandoned suburbs, the accommodation with delinquency. We have undergone the attempts to instrumentalize several religious communities, for whom France means nothing – nothing but an object of sarcasm, contempt or even hatred.

    We marched on July 14th. And this benevolent and diverse crowd, which acclaimed us because we are the emanation of it, we were asked to beware of it for months, by forbidding us to circulate in uniform, by making us potential victims, on a soil that we are nevertheless capable of defending.

    Yes, our elders are right about the substance of their text, in its entirety. We see violence in our towns and villages. We see communitarianism taking hold in public space, in public debate. We see hatred for France and its history becoming the norm.

    It may not be for the military to say that, you will argue. Quite the contrary: because we are apolitical in our assessments of the situation, it is a professional observation that we deliver. Because this decline, we have seen it in many countries in crisis. It precedes the collapse. It announces chaos and violence, and contrary to what you are asserting here or there, this chaos and this violence will not come from a “military pronunciamento” but from a civil insurrection.

    To quibble about the shape of the forum of our elders instead of recognizing the obviousness of their findings, we have to be quite cowardly. To invoke a duty of reserve badly interpreted in order to silence French citizens, one must be very deceitful. To encourage the leading army officers to take a stand and expose themselves, before fiercely sanctioning them as soon as they write anything other than battle stories, you have to be very perverse.

    Cowardice, deceit, perversion: such is not our vision of the hierarchy.
    On the contrary, the army is, par excellence, the place where we speak truthfully to each other because we commit our lives. It is this confidence in the military institution that we call for.

    Yes, if a civil war breaks out, the army will maintain order on its own soil, because it will be asked to. It is even the definition of civil war. No one can want such a terrible situation, our elders no more than us, but yes, again, civil war is brewing in France and you know it perfectly well.

    The cry of alarm from our Elders finally refers to more distant echoes. Our elders are the resistance fighters of 1940, whom people like you very often treated as factious, and who continued the fight while the legalists, transfixed with fear, were already betting on concessions with evil to limit the damage. ; these are the hairy 14, who died for a few meters of land, while you abandon, without reacting, entire districts of our country to the law of the strongest; they are all the dead, famous or anonymous, fallen at the front or after a lifetime of service.

    All our elders, those who made our country what it is, who designed its territory, defended its culture, gave or received orders in its language, did they fight for you to let France become a failed state? , who replaces his increasingly obvious sovereign powerlessness with a brutal tyranny against those of his servants who still want to warn him?

    Take action, ladies and gentlemen. This time, it is not about custom emotion, ready-made formulas or media coverage. It is not a question of extending your mandates or conquering others. It is about the survival of our country, of your country.

  14. ‘Civil war is brewing’: Serving French soldiers send Macron another chilling warning following earlier letter from retired generals calling for military action against ‘Islamists’:

    *Open letter by a group of serving French soldiers published late on Sunday
    *Soldiers warn Macron that the ‘survival’ of France is at stake after he made ‘concessions’ to Islamism
    *It echoes the tone of a similar letter printed last month which warned of civil

  15. Great post and comments as usual. Concerning UFOs and the occupants, i watched The Twilight Zone episode To Serve Man a few weeks ago. Fun seeing the world I was born into again (1950s) and also a fairly good story on how aliens may view us. Not as foxes or lions, but as cattle.

    1. I would not make light of UFOS. Robert Hastings Ufos and nukes. Hundreds of eye witness testimony high level classified people going back 50 years saying these are not of this earth. These things are invading our air space and disabling our SSBN AND ICBMS

      When a technology can disable our nukes it’s serious. When they do it in this method it’s beyond war changing outcomes. No one takes this seriously. They say it’s terrestrial tech. If any nation had this Non detectable appear from nowhere technology it would make all ICBMS ABMS SLBM irrelevant. Russia and the WEST continue to devolpe convential and nuclear weapons . If Russia or the USA had the tech to disable nukes like Robert Hastings witnesses claim there would be no WW3. It’s aliens? No. Paranormal pychonormal qusainornmal, can I say fallen angels demonic?

  16. Jeff, I see an acceleration of chaos. For example, our Colonial pipeline which serves the east coast was attacked with ransomware last Friday. I heard a report yesterday that the hacking is being attributed to an organization out of Russia. It is not expected to reopen for several more days. President* Biden wasn’t informed until Saturday, a day later. Very alarming about what this will do. Here is the latest news I found from Reuters.

    Also, Putin had a huge military parade on Sunday. Now, I read here that the French generals are petitioning the government for redress of grievances AGAIN and more forcefully with the vox populi. Do you see any connections between these events?

    1. “They are interested in the present and worry little about the future, not in the least scrupling to sacrifice their champions to the wrath of the adversary.”

      And you let these people order you about? Find a way out. I suggest using the moderator of this website.

      Any advanced society has treat its warriors honorably – can you disagree?

    2. It is painful to see such bold sabotage against our country. As you noted, an acceleration has been underway as we are transitioning from Cold War tactics to open warfare/open revolution. We are not only seeing direct sabotage from Russia, but more Marxist street violence, and sabotage from our Marxist stooge of a president (as he stopped a pipeline, too). Russian defectors have talked about a period before World War III called “grey terror.” I strongly suspect that grey terror began with the downing of the Twin Towers on 9/11/2001. We are obviously in the “overture” period now, which was referred to by Suvorov — the period before all-out war. We need to stash extra food and water and try to tell our friends and neighbors. Not an easy thing right now. But as events move along, provided the enemy sticks to their plans, it will be easier to see and to explain to those who are slow on the uptake. After June 15 we will know more.

    3. ”Putin” didn’t just have a ”huge military parade on Sunday”, it was the annual Victory Day celebration of the defeat of the Fascists ending World War Two. The military parade is to be expected given the tremendous sacrifices and the glorious victories of the Russian people in what is called ”the Great Patriotic War” and there’s nothing evil or menacing about it, nor do the Communists or the formal government own It either.

  17. “You do not connect anything that has
    access to SCADA, that is, control systems,
    to the Internet. Period. I don’t care how.
    I don’t why. I don’t care what.
    You don’t do it. End of discussion.”

    Karl Denninger (Today, on his site)

    Just in case anyone thinks that the Lions that
    are present in America have any real say
    in how America is run.

    ARE there any here?

    Besides that non-typical you-know-who.

    1. SCADA systems are accessible state by state, county by county. See also Solar Winds Elligable Reciver Moonlight Maze.

      1. Me neither. But when UFOS get mentioned, especially superficially and derisively, by any party, concerning our nuclear weapons, I feel I must chime in. I totally respect your work Nyquist. You’ve given us an education through your books and articles that could not be provided by any University. You may have saved the lives of thousands. I mean that will all intent. You’ve likely won thousands of souls to Christ as well. Your message has born much fruit. God bless you and yours. I hope this doesn’t sound like a prehumous eulogy.

  18. There is nothing like this in America. Obama did an effective job at purging the Pentagon of any counter-revolutionary threats. The military’s official actions and comments during the election coup last fall through Jan 6th shows they have been effectively neutered. If there are any lions in America, they will not be coming from the military at this point, in my opinion. The few connections I have left in the Navy (ranking LtCdr and Cdr) are seeking early retirement (and they were even center-left type people).

  19. How many Americans spent their stimulus disbursement on cheap Chinese crap?

    1. Trigo

      Only by living in the U.S. can you get a good idea of how few
      products are made in the U.S., and that is not counting
      “support parts” for our economy.

  20. In response to ”Bedlam’sbard”;

    Respectfully, what did your reply to my comment about Victory Day, a celebration of the defeat of the Fascists in WW2 and the contributions and sacrifices of the Russian people to that victory, have anything to do with what I said? To my mind, absolutely nothing. I don’t know about any of what you wrote one way or another, and I only speak to what I know and judge on that. What I do know is that the Nazis would have exterminated the Russian people had they won and conquered Russia. What I know is that a celebration of survival, remembering the 27.6 million or more souls who lost their lives in that conflict on Russian lands, and a determination to never have it happen again, has nothing to do with the politics, really. I don’t know a single family in which at least one person did not die in WW2. It seems, as Mr. Nyquist and I have discussed recently, is that some seek to defecate on the memory of all that and distort the history of the people involved. To me that’s something sacred and personal and real. You speak about Communists and Pedophiles and make all sorts of accusations and mention Tom Horn, Epstein, UFO’s and all this other stuff, and I’m merely setting someone straight that this ”Military Parade” is not something Putin or any other leader can ignore, or even exploit much for their own designs good or bad. The Russian people remember what happened, remember Hitler and his designs for their absolute destruction, and expect their leaders to remember it at least formally as well.

    1. Sure. No problem. Celebrate this day. I feel for Russia people.
      Associate Putin with it that is disgrace.

      1. Many traditions and good things are apparently sullied by association with things and people we may find wicked. But that’s the ”Wheat and the Tares” principle in action. It’s also why I try not to judge overly much, because inside each of us is darkness as well as light. As Alexander Solzshenitsyn once wrote; the ”battle lines are across the human heart”. This is why especially I pray for all world rulers, including the ones I have a personal estimation of wrongdoing about them. President Putin is the legal and accepted head of State of the Russian Federation, for good or for bad, but certainly as St. Paul says about all rulers- one way or another ultimately for the punishment of the wicked.

    2. For those that do not know, Hitler planned to exterminate the population of Moscow and cover the city’s location with an artificial lake.

      1. Adds a little perspective to the discussion, thank you Mr. Nyquist.

  21. Jeff, I have never read Charles Fort. Which of his books would you recommend to a first time reader?

  22. Vladimir, I was the one who initiated the comment about “Putin’s” huge military parade. Thank you for providing context, and I apologize for causing so much consternation. I spoke out of ignorance of the traditions of Victory Day. I just tied things together in my mind that were not related. There is so much happening and so much that has happened that seem to be heading towards world war. I saw this parade as evidence of another piece of the puzzle.

    I learn so much not just from Jeff, but from many of the commenters like yourself. I love when I ask a question, it gets answered!

    1. Hello ”Ladyfromlibertygarage”, It’s quite alright. The Russian people are absolutely that last people to want war, since most of the history is of invasions, but the Russian people also never want to lose war. Because losing war means conquest and destruction of all they hold dear. I also want to try to make clear, that the Russian people are not and have never been fools collectively speaking, ever, and the choices they make tend to be the right ones in their historical context (or the least bad choice)..

  23. Jeff, not sure if you can comment, about the food shortage that I mentioned on the call to the John Moore show yesterday. Bloomberg has reported China is going through a food shortage during March this year. I have raised this as a discussion on a few facebook groups that deal with the Grand Solar Minimum, they are the opinion it is Grand Solar Minimum related:

    1. There also appears to be clear hyperinflation going on in China, particularly after their failed sanctions against Australia. There’s an Epoch times article on this subject. Turns out even though China has a massive economy compared to the Aussies, they needed the Aussies more than the Aussies needed the Chinese. In fact, the Australians have already made up most of their losses by expanding trade to Japan, Korea, and other countries. Meanwhile, I read that the Chinese are experiencing huge percentage increases in the prices of things like beef and other foods (I believe the number was a 30% increase in cost for some foods). They’ve also been experiencing rolling blackouts.

      It turns out the ChiComs were too cocky and hurt themselves badly in their attempt at harming the Australian economy.

    2. The food shortages in China, associated with weather problems, has led to China making large food purchases in other countries, driving up prices. We are headed for real difficulties — and China must have food. We have no idea how large China’s food stockpiles are.

      1. The recurring civilization-specific problems of China are at play, as always. Russia, America, the entire world feeds the problem out of a combination now of fear and of greed. It only makes the situation worse.

      2. The elites in the leading countries — Russia, America, China — are problematic. Each is pathological in its own way. The people in each country face considerable challenges in the years ahead. The Chinese people face the most dreadful prospects of all.

  24. This Grand Solar Minimum is going to greatly complicate things immediately and not just over the next several decades. The competition for resources will obviously go kinetic and it is almost hard to believe it has not already.

    Or has it already? Jeff is right in that we have been in “Grey Terror” since 9-11-2001, and that the nature of WAR has changed so much that most do not even recognize it anymore.
    I don’t know if any “preparations” could be more successful than the damage done to our political system and the “Alphabet Soup Agencies” that are seemingly only concerned with “cancelling” patriotic white Americans of any color or creed, while protecting BLM and Antifa as well as their Marxist supporters, financial or otherwise.

    Many of the things that have occurred could actually be termed “Red Terror” and not just SARS-CoV-2 and the Solarwinds and Colonial Pipeline(s) hacks, but the street violence, fear, and terror regularly given not only a pass but actual protection by corrupted Law Enforcement, District Attorneys, Intel Agencies, Judges, and the entire political and bureaucratic systems.

    For a singular example of the rot, look at Peter Strzok, the Chief of the Counterespionage Section of the FBI.
    “Counterespionage Chief” but not a single example of action that benefitted this country instead of its enemies.

  25. As you said, Mr. Nyquist, it seems that each Nation’s elites are the true enemies of their nations. This as you have noted, is not a coincidence.

    In my opinion, it’s the nature of the Modern Age itself that has distorted the relations between the rulers and the ruled, obscured reality. Many might agree with this also, and yet not understand that this is not an unconcious development, people being moved about by impersonal collective historical social and economic forces. Deterministic Historical Materialism is their myth, not mine.

    There are people who have consciously invested in the so-called ”scientific management of human affairs”, as dedicated revolutionaries determined to mold people like clay, whether coming up from the gutter (rarely), from a comfortable bourgeoisie existence like Lenin or Hitler (most commonly), or even that crowned ”Bolshevik”, Tsar Peter the Great…

    1. Yes. I believe you have put your finger on the problem. The best Russian, American and West European thinkers of the last two centuries have expressed a sense of dismay at the turn history has taken. Even atheistic or agnostic thinkers have expressed dismay (e.g., Gustav Le Bon, Vilfredo Pareto, Friedrich Nietzsche, Jacob Burckhardt, etc). They all can see that the wise are not in charge of the world. The good are not honored. More deeply spiritual natures, like Solzhenitsyn and Dostoyevski pointed to a struggle between good and evil. The Southern Agrarian, Richard Weaver, showed that we have abandoned truth, beauty and goodness after turning our back on universals. Thomas Carlyle warned against the democratic socialism of 1848 in his latter-day pamphlets. Eric Voegelin, whose political science merges with Christian mysticism, wrote of a parousiastic gnosticism striving to destroy “the order of being, which is experienced as defective and unjust….” This dangerous idea, which misunderstands history and man, madly imagines that man can make the world perfect (i.e., that man can correct God’s “mistakes”). Of course, man can do no such thing. This insane idea involves us in dangerous self-misunderstandings, dangerous political projects and, finally, mass murder. The communist ideal that “the givenness of the order of being must be obliterated” only guarantees wholesale obliteration. As such, it is demonic. Anyone who has personally known true-believing communists has glimpsed this (if possessed of any insight at all), and trembles to think what these madmen will do next. All the great intellects of the last two centuries give us bits of a larger understanding of our time. From Alexis de Tocqueville, William Hartpole Lecky, Geatano Mosca and Max Weber, we read cautionary tales about the decline of religious and/or aristocratic values. If we are imaginative, if we are tuned to what is unfolding, we can profit greatly from these thinkers. The dangerous answers, and the “easy” answers, offered up by scientific socialism, rationalist liberalism, materialist Darwinism, are now in the driver’s seat. Buckle up knuckle heads! The idea of a universal order based on a false idea of who man is, of where man is headed, promises us the greatest train wreck in all history. The many falsifications of reality which flow from these doctrines, smug as they are in scientistic certainty — stupefying in their literalism — cannot be fully reckoned. After this fashion, the rulers and ruling classes of America, Russia and China crawl toward a world war in which the once dominant West is ruled by wicked fools, Russia is ruled by wicked nihilists, and China is ruled by psychopaths who have, through deeply convoluted schemes, outwitted themselves. These elites, who make world history, promise to give us the perfect storm. Only a minority in each country senses the falseness of these regimes and the calamity into which they are likely to plunge us. The comfortable bourgeoisie will not be comfortable much longer.

      1. A fair and lucid reply, I can agree in many respects. And to which my best comment on a prudent worldly level would be for everyone to leave the big cities, while there is still some time. And on a deeper spiritual level, is to pray. Fortunately God is good in all things!

  26. The new corollary for the democrat party comes from the old postulate: “Never let a good crisis go to waste if it can be used to achieve your aims ” Cass Sunstein

    The new corollary is: Become the crisis monger — create crises everywhere to achieve your aims.

    Who said anything about waiting for a crisis:
    “insurrection” crisis
    Colonial pipeline
    Texas electrical storm crisis
    Border crisis
    Palestinian crisis
    Iran deal crisis
    “Donald Trump tweets” crisis
    Infrastructure crisis
    Racism crisis

    All mongered in your democrat party crisis mongery.

    When you need more power, monger away.

    Wilson: Zimmerman telegram. Lusitania. Railroad strike, Race riots. Suffrage. Prohibition.
    Franklin Roosevelt: A crisis a day. Never ending crisis mongering.

    Crises can never be solved, they can only be salved and maintained.

    1. “World War III has begun,” says Alex Jones. Then he talks about “the mark of the beast,” the “New World Order,” fear of Satanic cults, belief in UFO aliens (evil reptilians), ritual human sacrifice, evil bankers, secret societies. etc. What are my thoughts? Is thought possible after being assaulted by such a presentation? Am I mistaken, or is this attention-seeking behavior? I’ve often thought, that if you listen to Jones too much, your head might cave in, like a rotten pumpkin. Of course, Jones sells the usual line of survival foods, vitamins, fish oils, etc. Question: Does this guy believe anything he says? Possibly he believes everything he says, and says everything that comes to his sensation-oriented mind. Here the relationship between what he believes and what is serviceable for attracting a large audience is one and the same — a distinction without a difference. He “passionately” presents an entertaining grab-bag of paranoid constructions, of lower-class resentments, of simplifications and wild suggestions, not caring overmuch for what is true. “We’ve really studied the controllers of the planet,” says Jones, “and we know how they work.” Does he really? Or is it political porn? If he really is onto something, why haven’t the malefactors of great wealth bumped him off? Yet he goes on and on and on. And has, in the past, defended Putin. There is no telling what his diversionary value might be to an enemy of the country. One thing is certain. If he ran for president and I ran against him, he would win hands down. And if I won, I would demand a recount.

  27. “The comfortable bourgeoisie will not be comfortable much longer.”

    Once gas prices go past a certain amount (6-14usd)
    there will be a quick reaction nation-wide, how would
    that play out politically? Esp. when American’s look
    around and see the high price isn’t driven by war
    or a cartel?

      1. Will they notice?

        THAT is an interesting question.

        Those hollow skulls, filled with common desires only.

      2. “Ah, but it IS driven by war. The question is: Will they notice?”

        These people who have never cried after losing a chess game?

        We need a patriotic songster – use the word “cry”.

  28. US Senator, Rand Paul, M.D., has stated that we have all had antibodies to the virus for quite some time., which provides immunity to all variations in strains.

    Seems to me that even if it were to haver leaked from the Wuhan lab, it wouldn’t be much of a threat.

    1. Seriously? We have immunity to a chimera virus? It’s not a threat? You don’t think people have been dying? I certainly agree it is not as bad as the great flu pandemic of 100 years ago. But it is not a normal flu, either. Of course, the communists are using it as bludgeon. We should oppose this. The lockdowns are extremely damaging to our economy. The vaccine is probably a mistake. But look, if you are overweight, diabetic or have a pre-existing condition, it might kill you. Right? Look at the large number of deaths. This thing is not harmless. Please don’t tell me the virus is harmless. The country’s population declined last year, for the first time in a century. That is a reality. Please do not deny it. I’m against exaggerating the danger, but I am equally against dismissing it as a hoax. This thing is a silent killer, because it kills through blood clotting. Have you read some of the clinical literature? A friend of mine dropped dead last November. Was it the virus? I suspect it was, because someone else I know died of the virus with the same symptoms after being infected. Yes, it was blood-clotting. Another person I know was seriously injured by the blood-clotting effect. He had the virus. He needs a transplant now. Our science has not been very creditable here, and doctors are not gods. Ron Paul is someone with an ideology, who sees everything through an ideological lens. Facts do not matter much to him. Something is true for him only if it fits with his ideology. Please be responsible here. Don’t say the virus is not a threat. Be truthful. Respect the facts.

      1. I know here in Europe meanwhile also 2 people who died from the virus. Many mild courses and also some severe with longer problems.
        Interesting is this article:
        “SARS-CoV-2 spike protein alone may cause lung damage”
        Very interesting excerpt:
        “Our findings show that the SARS-CoV2 spike protein causes lung injury even without the presence of intact virus,” said Pavel Solopov, Ph.D., DVM, research assistant professor at the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics at Old Dominion University. “This previously unknown mechanism could cause symptoms before substantial viral replication occurs.”
        “The researchers found that the genetically modified mice injected with the spike protein exhibited COVID-19-like symptoms that included severe inflammation, an influx of white blood cells into their lungs and evidence of a cytokine storm—an immune response in which the body starts to attack its own cells and tissues rather than just fighting off the virus. The mice that only received saline remained normal.”

        This could mean that the spike protein alone is causing the problems and not the virus. So how do the new vaccines work? They cause the body to produce spike proteins.
        This could also mean why the problems occur not only in the lungs but also in other areas of the body.

        Also have a look at german MSM ntv:
        “Dangerous spike protein – Researcher: Covid-19 is a vascular disease”

      2. Also interesting article regarding Spike Protein from the German MSM “Frankfurter Rundschau”
        “Spike protein alone is enough to trigger covid – blood vessels in particular take damage” – “Researchers have been able to demonstrate for the first time how exactly the coronavirus damages vessels in the body. “In reality, it is a vascular disease,” they conclude.”

        Translation of interesting parts (in the article there are links to English pages):

        “Coronavirus infection may promote vascular disease such as stroke”
        “The findings would help explain the multitude of seemingly unrelated complications from covid-19 and could open the door for new research into more effective therapies”
        “A lot of people think it’s a respiratory disease, but it’s really a vascular disease”
        “This could explain why some people have strokes and why some people have problems in other parts of the body. The commonality of the complaints: They all have vascular causes.”
        “Spike protein alone is enough to trigger covid”

        For information, I’m not a doctor or a pharmacist :-).
        Please use or (better) for translation. The whole article is interesting.

  29. The vaccines are far more hazardous than SARS. Recent discovery of emails show that Fauci has been taking directions from China. Mask are to make people do as they are told. Soon, vaccine passports will be required to access all public and licensed services. China has long required visas to visit another town. Dr Paul just raked Fauci over the coals for funding the Wuhan lab. I wouldn’t be surprised if the bioweapon was not in fact released at all. The Live Exercise just drew attention to the lab and Fauci funding it. Fauci stated that the virus came from Virginia, at the US bioweapons facility. Under no circumstances does wearing a surgical mask do the least little bit of good. It’s time to end the nonsense and get back to making a living. If the World can afford a year long vacation, why haven’t we done that every year?

    1. I don’t believe the reported numbers of cases or deaths, either. Family members of deceased have said that their relatives killed in car collisions and of alcohol poisonings were issued death certificates which state cause of death as Covid.

      You have lamented fake news, but you buy the BS? How many died of Flu last year? How many were even tested for Flu? Have you ever been tested for the Flu? The only real test for a virus is a blood test. Covid testing is not a blood test.

      Even in time of war, people still have to make a living, with bullets flying over their heads.

      1. I know people who probably died of the virus and are not included in the death statistic. You want to believe the virus is relatively harmless. To most people it is harmless. But let’s not say it is harmless to everyone. I have no doubt the establishment is fabricating statistics. At the same time, our medical establishment is clumsy and stupid. That defines most every bureaucracy. And that means there are deaths they are NOT counting. What is the real number? I do not think we are going to have an exact count. The one statistic you cannot fake is the total number of deaths in this country over the past 13 months. That number is way above normal. People are dying of something. What is the cause? Please explain. More people are dying in America now than at any time in the last hundred years. Be honest. Don’t use political preferences to draw an epidemiological conclusion. Try and think objectively, non-ideologically. People with this disease are suffering vascular injuries, organ damage, and more. Have you noticed this? I do not think we have a true reckoning of what this virus can do. I do not think we fully understand all its functions as a weapon. Because we do not understand it, I do not think the vaccine is something we understand either. It may have unforeseen effects (or not). It has been an odd go-to choice. I do not think the lockdowns are a good idea either, because we need our economy to function. Sweden had the right idea. Shelter the vulnerable, let the healthy get immunity. Whether you are on the left or the right, reality does not always fit your preconceptions. That is what I want you to consider. Wear your thinking cap. Be skeptical of everyone, including yourself. We may be in a biological war and we might be walking into a trap. There may be a design here. The left and right ideologists are tempted to believe only what fits their preconceptions. Think how an enemy could exploit your attitude in round two of this war. I’m sure you have not thought in such terms. There are falsifications and misjudgments on all sides. I am saying this as someone who is merely trying to understand what our enemies are hoping to accomplish. I don’t trust the CDC. I don’t trust what our government says. I do not trust libertarian ideologies. I do not trust conservative “viral optimists.” When a doctor friend of mine said the virus was only a normal flu I was shocked. He was not a virologist. He was clearly making a medical judgment based on political beliefs. Not good. There is no intellectual integrity in such judgments. Ron Paul is an M.D..? He is a libertarian ideologue. Such people cannot always be trusted. When my doctor friend presented his scientific analysis in a paper I was shocked at his poor understanding of scientific method and analysis. He was falling back on one fallacy after another. If the left has exaggerated, so has the right — in the other direction. I know that some of my friends will be angry with me for writing this. So be it. I have watched this disease, and it was clearly more dangerous 14 months ago, prior to its rapid mutation. Doctors and nurses were succumbing in its early phase. Not now. I suspect the virus will continue to attenuate, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t dealing with a bioweapon. It does not mean there won’t be a second wave attack. I would guess it did not work as the designers hoped; yet, it is not a normal flu. Has that sunk in yet? Or are you putting your fingers in your ears? You cannot treat a normal flu with a malaria drug. We are talking about a virus that acts upon red blood cells, upon the vascular system. It is a disease ideally designed to injure a nation in which 39 percent of the population is obese. That is what sticks out — what ought to impress us. But no. We turn everything into ideology. Sorry to say: ideology is bunk.

  30. I went to emergency during the Santa Barbara, Purple Tier Surge, last December, for what turned out to be minor. There was one patient ahead of me for admission and none in que behind me. I was in and treated in less than ninety minutes. On the way out, there was nobody waiting at emergency admissions. There were no bodies stacked like kindling on the hospital loading docks; o meat wagons carting off dead bodies.

    You are right. We don’t know what we don’t know. What about it? Like you said, the restrictions are misapplied. Whatever it is, sitting passively waiting to see if we starve before realizing the punch line, is not going to help. It’s time to move on, get back to work, and let the chips fall where they may.

    You’ve already expressed your rejection of launching a first strike against China. Do you advocate a police state?

    1. We also don’t know that the supposed casualties aren’t caused by 5G, either. That got put up everywhere, while people were confined to quarters and couldn’t see it being placed. There was no debate permitted – no testing on humans. Experts say it’s extremely hazardous. Of course, that’s not to mention that the Earth is losing it’s magnetic field, which shields us from radiation from Outerspace. Is Covid a cover up for 5G or is 5G a cover up of the weakening of the planet’s magnetic field? We can eliminate 5G. That’s something we can do something about. Now, what about all the traffic fatalities, and deaths due to allergic reaction to prescription drugs? Those are all preventable, or at least calculable.

      1. Very amusing. It was 5G all along. That explains why the elderly are dying. They are big on 5G. Grandpa just loves his IPad.

    2. Sounds like you’re good at making strawman arguments to me, and little else. What exactly are you suggesting people ”do”?

  31. Now that you are in a discussion of Covid-19, there’s so much falsehood going around that it’s hard to tell what is the truth. There have been so many cases documented of falsified death records that some people have gone to the opposite extreme to claim that the disease doesn’t exist. The test used to “diagnose” the illness is ridiculously inaccurate, because it was never intended as a diagnostic test. Therefore, we have no idea of how many people have had the disease, nor how many actually died of the disease and not of other comorbidities.

    I knew someone who supposedly died of it. But he had so many comorbidities that he had been in hospice for months, and so far gone that he had been unable to communicate with his siblings for months. Then the day before he died, he was diagnosed with Covid-19. Was the Covid-19 in his body long enough to kill him? Or was his death the result of the other comorbidities that he already had? Was that a false positive from what is known as a highly inaccurate test? We’ll never know.

    At the beginning of 2020, students returned to the local university. Among them were some from China. Shortly afterwards the news started talking about a terrible new disease in Wuhan, but it was over there, not here. The imagery was awful. Then in early February I came down with by far the worst cough that I’ve ever had. My whole body ached. I had a fever. I needed help to get out of bed. Now over a year later, my stamina is noticeably less. I tire more easily. Is that the long-term result of my fever, or from enforced inactivity from the shut-down?

    The reason I include my personal story is 1) from both subjective and objective evidence, the disease really exists 2) the subjective evidence is that I already had it, therefore have natural immunity.

    We’ll never know the true numbers of those killed by the disease, nor even of those infected with it, because of the fraud connected with those numbers. We’ll also never know the total number of those killed by the “vaccines”, again because of the fraud connected with those numbers. Even the VAERS data is recognized at receiving only a fraction of actual events. So with the fraud and incomplete data, have the “vaccines” come to be more deadly than the disease? And we don’t know it because of fraud? Is it true, as some claim, that the “vaccines” themselves are bio-weapons designed for mass murder?

    Now I could put on my tin-foil hat and speculate as to motives. Bill Gates never impressed me as being someone who is particularly bright, rather just someone who is evil and loaded with money: I can put his motives as a psychopath with greed and foolishness. Anthony Fauci has documented connections to the CCP. As for those who developed the “vaccines”—ignorance. How many politicians and newscasters just stupidly believe the “experts”? It was known for some time that the disease is mainly a blood-clotting disease, but only recently that the mechanism is connected to the spike proteins themselves—the mRNA shots are designed to make our bodies into spike protein factories, and the others are loaded with spike proteins. The clots start out tiny, affecting the smallest blood vessels first, then the larger clots cause strokes and heart attacks, as well as other damage throughout the body.

    Anthony Fauci and his colleagues’ connections to the CCP and their public near worship are most troubling to me.

  32. The elusive point, Jeff, is how are Americans going to resist a Chinese invasion of the United States, when we don’t even have the wherewithal to defend, The Bill Of Rights, from infringement of, Freedom Of Expression, by dispensing with the fallacious mask? Why are we following the same ineffective restrictions, in the model of China?
