If you haven’t noticed by now, America appears to be in a state of war. It may not be what you envision a war to be but it all began when we as a country found ourselves in a great moral and spiritual conflict, which is now taking shape all around us with multiple fronts of battle and issues of great importance at stake.

I remember a few weeks ago when I stated on my show that America has finally reached a point of civil war. It began with the biological warfare that was carried out again by a proposed lone nut and then a week later another lone wolf assailant mailed inert pipe bombs to left-wing pundits.

I remember a phone call I received from someone who told me that I was crazy and that I was unnecessarily creating hysteria by saying that we as a country were engaged in civil war.

The caller was incredulous saying “People are not in the streets shooting people” which was the evidence he used as evidence of his position. A week later a white supremacist opened fire in a synagogue killing 11 people and injuring 6.

Last night a tall, hooded gunman dressed in black and covering his face with a bandana opened fire during College Night at a crowded country dance bar in Southern California.

Eleven people in the bar were killed, and one police officer, a Ventura County Sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Ron Helus, was also killed. The number thus totals 13, including the shooter.

While for some occult watchdogs, the number 13 stands out as a possible numeric signature – there is an even creepier synchronicity and that is some of the patrons at the bar included survivors of the October 1st, 2017 mass shooting at the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival concert.

The question is what are the odds that the survivors of one mass shooting have to live through another a little over a year later?

The shooter was a former machine gunner in the Marines and a decorated combat veteran of the war in Afghanistan who authorities said had an episode of erratic behavior last spring that they were told might be post-traumatic stress disorder.

The number of mass shootings around the country in 2018 has risen above 300 so far; that along with bombs and poison in the mail and organized rallies that become violent expressions of political anger are the very ingredients that make a civil war and yet most Americans are oblivious.

The truth is that this civil upheaval can be avoided, however, it is hard to do so when these asymmetrical attacks are organized “response events” and they are bought and paid for to destabilize the country in order to provide fodder to implement a police state.

The term, “Response Event” has been coined to denote any mass responding event that takes after a political decision or a judge’s decision in the court. They also happen after a report of alleged police brutality or after a major election.

These response events can range from political protests to riots and politically motivated terror attacks like mass shootings or bombings.

The firing of Jeff Sessions has now triggered organized protests and marches all over the United States today.

What is most stunning about this organized response is that now we are beginning to see that these so-called organic protests are well organized and are backed financially by those with financial interest in who is in charge of this country.

After Jeff Sessions was fired by President Trump – a tweet was sent by MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow. The tweet seemed like a call to arms for her left-wing contingency – it read:

It’s happening.

This is the “Break Glass in Case of Emergency” plan to protect the Mueller investigation.

5pm (local time) protests tomorrow (Thursday, Nov 8.)

We knew this would happen at some point – the day has arrived.

It appears that journalists are no longer are satisfied in reporting the news – they wish to become the news.

Just a day before the election, President Trump was at a rally in Missouri and it was apparent that journalists are now in a position to take sides and endorse openly candidates for office.

Introducing the president as he stumped for Republican candidates was Rush Limbaugh, and later Trump invited two Fox News personalities onstage – Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro.

The participation of the Fox hosts in a political rally struck even executives at the network as inappropriate.

Fox executives issued a statement “Fox News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events. We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight, and we are extremely proud of their work. This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed.”

No one knows how the network addressed it.

However, there were more events indicating that reporters and commentators are becoming part of “response events” that are obviously being staged to create chaos.

Last night ANTIFA or as the media calls them “a protest group” showed up at Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson’s D.C. home to hurl insults and warn him that they knew where he lived. Carlson was not home at the time, but his wife, Susan Andrews, was and hid in the pantry while she called 911.

Jim Acosta of CNN had his White House Press pass revoked because during a verbal confrontation with the President he allegedly laid a hand on a Whitehouse intern as she tried to remove a microphone with her hands.

A viral video has made the rounds on the internet and now there is a fight over whether or not the move by the Whitehouse is justified because left-wing reporters are saying that the video has been doctored.

A former FBI special agent says White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders libeled Jim Acosta by sharing an altered video of his interaction with an intern during the news conference.

Reporters showing up at rallies, organizing protests, and becoming targets are all part of the build-up to a dirty war scenario that leads to more organized response events that would indicate we are in the throes of civil upheaval that is nearing full civil war.

The condition of civil warfare brings a unique set of moral challenges to the table and it also gives us an opportunity to see how these battles are organized with bottomless pockets to destabilize the republic.

Take for example what happened after the President fired attorney general Jeff Sessions. By the end of the day major left wing organizations had already put together protests in 900 U.S. cities to make a “public demand for action to correct this injustice.”
Two organizations and sent out a statement:

“Donald Trump has installed a crony to oversee the special counsel’s Trump-Russia investigation, crossing a red line set to protect the investigation. By replacing Rod Rosenstein with just-named Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker as special counsel Robert Mueller’s boss on the investigation, Trump has undercut the independence of the investigation. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it. The Nobody Is Above the Law Network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation. Our hundreds of response events are being launched to demonstrate the public demand for action to correct this injustice. We will update this page as the situation develops.”

Anyone that thought that the midterm elections would calm down the level of strife in this country was just being delusional.

As I had commented on election night –what is the point of encouraging the vote when people organize protests against a decision that the vote has produced.

It is counterintuitive for the left to protest a decision when the votes were encouraged –and now it is very telling to see protests organized because a man they all claimed to hate was forced to resign his position.

Especially when the Russia gate investigation was somewhere between the 49thand the 100th concern of voters, a number that dramatizes the great gulf that has opened up between ordinary people and the political class that is exploiting the ignorance of those who wish to hate and tilt at windmills.

On Election night I was preempted across the country for election coverage. I was called to produce a show locally about 6 protest groups that were said to be gathering in Portland.

Just before the protest, Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer urged his followers to stand down.

Various members of Antifa showed up downtown for the protest and they too were asked to not proceed with the plan.

The truth is that these particular protests were, in fact, organic and when the word got out that they were going to happen – word has it that those who financially back the protests demanded the mob back off because they didn’t want to turn any potential voters against their candidates.

Apparently, the attitude has changed now – the elections are over and the war footing is back on.

As I predicted – without a misstep, the Russian investigation is back on – and the organized protests are happening because they feel that the firing of Sessions, a man that the left hated will greatly endanger the investigation.

And of course, top Democratic leaders are adding fuel to that fire. Former Attorney General Eric Holder said on Twitter he worries Session’s exit could negatively impact Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“Anyone who attempts to interfere with or obstruct the Mueller inquiry must be held accountable,” Holder tweeted. “This is a red line. We are a nation of laws and norms not subject to the self-interested actions of one man.”

The reality of the matter is that Jeff Sessions had been doing an absolutely horrible job, he was a man that was completely out of touch and he should have been fired over a year ago. Trump showed a tremendous amount of patience keeping him on until now, and he should be applauded for finally making a change.

These organized responses are showing how desperate the Left are in taking down Trump.

In a time of cultural conflict, the enemy of our enemy becomes a friend –and it just seems to demonstrate how our own civil war is evolving and how it is based purely on the hate of one man –as opposed to what is right for the safety and wellbeing of our country.

The idea is to make the President a perceived threat and any of his decisions can be seen as some sort of obstruction of justice of detriment of the people.

Calling what were once protests and civil disorder as Response events is an attempt at newspeak to normalize these actions.

They are now everyday occurrences, from shootings in churches synagogues and nightclubs to organized marches; the United States has reached a point that is beyond incivility.

It so pervasive here in Portland Oregon that mayor Ted Wheeler is now proposing we legislate where and when these violent activities can occur.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is introducing a controversial ordinance that would give him the power to dictate the location and length of protests if he fears they pose a threat to public safety.

The ordinance could go to a vote next week.

Wheeler said the ordinance is a response to escalating violence between opposing protesters in Portland’s streets and to the criticism and negative headlines that follow each brawl.

The mayor could also invoke his power to regulate the time and length of any protest if he or the Police Bureau believes there is “a substantial likelihood” of violence, or if the safety of participants is threatened.

Critics say the ordinance would undermine Portland’s reputation as a city that cherishes civic engagement and free speech and is likely unconstitutional.

Whatever happened to arresting people who commit crimes?

This is normalizing civil war – in a peculiar way, it is insane and has all the earmarks of what would be seen in some strange Orwellian dystopia.

It is a strange way of stylizing revolutions and civil wars “for the people.”

This is what happened during the Russian revolution. It all began with a bloodless coup d’état and eventually it became a war “for the people.”

It is a paradox of our modern democracy that we have the conditions and tools to enable our political system to work better than ever before and yet there is this disconnect as to why we vote or why we even organize and commit acts of civil disobedience in the first place.

There is no rhyme nor reason for any of it if there are no satisfactory results.

Much of what should facilitate a smooth-running, engaged political system has helped corrode it. In politics, as in other aspects of life, abundance can be good but excess is often harmful. You can end up with too much of everything, and I think that’s what we’ve got in politics today.

This why almost nothing that happens in politics makes any sense at all.

We are fighting against each other instead of those who continue to divide us and pull us apart.
