President Trump needs a ‘war-time consigliere’ to step up, and soon
There is an iconic scene from the 1972 film The Godfather that someone high up in the Trump administration needs to revisit.
It goes something like this:
The aging godfather, Vito Corleone, passed the torch to his youngest son Michael, who takes power just as the Corleones see their business devolving into a nasty turf war with competing New York mob families. They must come to grips with the new reality on the ground and adopt a sense of urgency, or else pack their bags and get out of town.
Do they hunker down and try to wait out the storm, or do they fight?
Tom Hagen, played by Robert Duvall, was Vito’s adopted son and longtime trusted adviser, or consigliere.
Tom, a lawyer and a skilled negotiator, is loyal and competent in every way. He is gentle in nature and always served as the voice of reason in the family.
But when young Michael assumes power he recognizes the time for talking is over. He decides to fight. Thus, his first decision is a surprising one: He fires Tom as consigliere, and inserts Vito in his place. His reasoning?
“Tom,” he says, you may be a fine man, but “you are not a wartime consigliere.”
President Trump needs to face the facts and realize he is in a war, not just for his presidency but for the heart and soul of America.
We are a nation at the precipice of destruction.
Hard-core communists, not old-fashioned liberals, have infiltrated the government at all levels and have allied themselves with hardcore Islamists. These traitors, many working in governor’s mansions, state AG’s offices and big-city mayors’ offices, are facilitating the destroyers on the ground in cities like Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, New York, Chicago and Atlanta. People, including children, have needlessly died as these traitors talk of defunding and dismantling police departments.
When politics gets substituted for public safety, how can this end well?
As the summer wears on, radical leftists continue to ramp up their efforts to discredit, devalue, demoralize and defund police in one city after another, and it’s not just big cities like Seattle, Portland, New York and Chicago that are in their sights.
Beneath the radar there’s an untold story about how Black Lives Matter and affiliated groups are brilliantly exploiting the death of George Floyd and using deceptive political tactics to pressure smaller cities into kowtowing to their demands.
The politicization of facemasks is growing more acute by the day, squeezing non-mask wearers out of stores and offices and casting them aside like collateral damage destined for the societal Dumpster.
We should not be surprised.
Bill Gates informed us early on in the pandemic that we would not be allowed to “return to normal until the entire world is vaccinated.” Adoring news reporters quoted him saying this as though they were talking to God himself.
Now, they are pushing the mask to ensure that their god’s prophecy comes true. No normalcy allowed. The vaccine is not yet ready!
An armed militia marched through an Atlanta-area suburb on Independence Day toting AR-15 rifles and shotguns, shouting black-power slogans and demanding reparations from white motorists.
The event in Stone Mountain lit up social media sites with chatter about the group’s goals and military capability.
But Georgia’s law enforcement community has for the most part dismissed the militia group’s demonstration as inconsequential bluster — nothing to worry about in terms of an actual military threat to persons or property.
According eye witnesses, the militants entered Stone Mountain Park, home of the nation’s largest Civil War monument featuring the images of Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson carved into the side of a granite mountain. According to a July 8 Fox News article, the city of Stone Mountain is receiving increased calls to remove the monument but that would take an act of the Georgia legislature.
A July 5 post from GeorgiaLeo.org described the demonstration as follows:
“’Protestors’ from the self-proclaimed ‘NFAC – Not F*cking Around Coalition’ marched through the streets of Stone Mountain Georgia yesterday chanting anti-white, anti-BLM, and anti-Police sentiments. Along the way their leader stopped and berated white drivers asking them for reparations and telling them to ‘go on with your white denial before you lose your life’ when they laughed in his face.
“At this time it is still unclear what their actual goal was as the leader can also be heard shouting ‘We aren’t here to talk, and we aren’t here to overcome.’
The racially charged rhetoric did not stop there. The militia leader, who is a veteran of the U.S. Army, also threw out taunts to rival white militia groups:
“I don’t see no white militia, the Boogie[sic] Boys, the Three Percenters and all the rest of these scared-ass rednecks. We here, where the **** you at? We’re in your house… let’s go!”
The area east and northeast of Atlanta contains a large concentration of Muslim refugees and some of the marchers could be heard chanting “Alhamdulillah.”
“’Alhamdulillah’ means ‘Thanks be to Allah‘ and is not usually said except by observant Muslims,” noted Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch.
But law enforcement in the area doesn’t seem concerned.
“If it’s public land, they have every right to be there and we have no right as law enforcement to question them, ask for their papers, any of that stuff,” said Jimmy Callaway, police chief in the city of Morrow about 25 miles south of Stone Mountain. “I know it’s disturbing to some people but it’s almost the same thing as what the Boogaloo Boys, a far right militia, has done at the state Capitol, parading around with their guns. Is it a huge threat to where I’m at? No, I think it was more show than anything else. Some of those weapons were a joke. Some had some pretty nice ARs, but a lot of what I was seeing was low-end stuff.”
Callaway did concede that some of the confrontations captured on video, particularly the situation in which the militia leader stopped a white man’s car and demanded he pay reparations, were “disturbing.”
They were engaging with motorists who didn’t want to be engaged with, and that’s outside the bounds of one’s First Amendment rights.
Local police ‘woefully unprepared’
David Bores, a retired police chief in Woodstock, a suburban community north of Atlanta, said he spoke with a high-ranking officer at the Stone Mountain Park Police Department, who similarly dismissed the demonstration as nothing much to worry about.
Bores thinks that’s a mistake.
He said the wave of violent crime sweeping through Atlanta, Seattle, Chicago, New York and other major cities should be seen as a red flag for the surrounding suburban communities.
Most suburban and semi-rural counties are severely undermanned in their sheriff’s departments. Most post no more than three to eight deputies on the night shift and many rural counties will have only two working at night.
That means they would not be able to handle an armed militia attacking residential communities or commercial properties.
“Major cities are a powder keg. And it’s just a matter of time before they decide they have to take that and move it into the suburbs,” said Bores, who now works as a law-enforcement trainer.
Bores said most suburban and rural law enforcement agencies are “woefully unprepared” for the next step in the ongoing racially charged uprising sweeping across America.
“Oh without question, they have no clue. They don’t understand the Islamic threat, they don’t the Marxist threat,” Bores said. “They’re not getting any training on any of that. I no longer give any training at the Georgia Police Academy only because they say their budget has been cut back considerably.”
He said the FBI decided to change gears during the Obama administration, turning away from intelligence gathering on Islamic and Marxist elements and focusing instead on white nationalist groups as the biggest threat to America’s domestic security.
“For the most part they’re just absolutely clueless on the nature of this threat,” Bores added. “The purge of FBI training manuals in 2011 and 2012 removed any meaningful training on the Islamic threat at the national level and this has rippled down to the local level.”
That focus hasn’t changed much under the Trump administration and now the Marxist and Muslim groups are working together.
“As we saw in Stone Mountain, there is a nexus there between the jihadists and Black Lives Matter and these anarchist groups,” he said.
Not only are law enforcement not taking the threat seriously, many of the commenters in conservative Facebook groups chose to dismiss the July 4 event with words like “laughable” and “comical.”
Again, Bores says such statements are borne out of ignorance about what’s happening, and ignorance of how revolutions have gone down historically in other countries, often with a well-organized ragtag band of zealots.
“That’s just a way to keep your head in the sand. When you mock your own enemy, that’s a good indication you don’t have a clue, so you make fun of your enemy, you trivialize him and it makes you feel better,” Bores said. “That way you don’t have to do anything.”
In the video below, posted to Twitter by former NYPD cop John Cardillo, one of the militants can be heard telling a white motorist, “We’re not Black Lives Matter, none of that bullshit. We’re black power. We’re your worst nightmare.”
OK, game changer.
Approaching someone’s car armed because they’re white and demanding “reparations” is perilously close to felony armed robbery and is most definitely a hate crime.
Many observers have warned that it’s just a matter of time before Marxist revolutionaries turn their focus from statues – mere symbols of America – to living, breathing people with whom they have a vendetta. They want reparations. They want revenge against Trump supporters. They want wealth redistribution and the seizure of private property, and they are ready to spill blood in pursuit of their goals.
One might expect the mainstream media to be AWOL on a story like the one that played out in Stone Mountain, where a leftist militia makes a show of force. But where is the FBI? Where were the police when a man was being interrogated by the mob and told to pay reparations?
Bores said it’s easier to debunk, downplay and deny. So he’s not optimistic that things will change anytime soon. That means we the people must be prepared to protect ourselves, and do that by creating our own secure networks of like-minded patriotic Americans. In my next webinar, via Zoom at 7 p.m. on July 20 with The United West/Sharia Crimestoppers, I will be discussing how to go about doing that with my friend Shahram Hadian.
When the mob arrives, we must be ready to protect our churches, our small businesses, our families. If the tide turns for the worse, the most dangerous time will be November through January, just as winter blows in. Stocking up on firewood and other winter supplies is something to think about now!

Many of you were shocked by the video footage I presented over the weekend, where an army of some 300 heavily armed Black Panther type commandos marched through Stone Mountain, a suburb of Atlanta, harassing white people with threats and intimidation.
According to the nonprofit group Georgia Law Enforcement, which posted a description of the event on Facebook, an armed group of several hundred “protesters” carrying AR-15 semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, marched through the streets of Stone Mountain yelling threats at white people.

Once upon a time, there was something called science. It included the discovery of truth about nature, the elements, the universe, etc. It was practiced by honest and accountable practitioners called scientists and engineers.
These scientists often invented cool new things as a result of their studies, but generally they had no primal urge to use their knowledge to dominate other people, groups or even entire societies.
Then certain other scientists and engineers rose up and made a discovery of their own. If true science was ever-so-slightly skewed and engineering disciplines were applied to society at large, then they could indeed use their “knowledge” to dominate and control other people, groups, entire societies or even, heaven forbid, the entire planet.
The first group pursued science. The second group pursued pseudo-science.
We are in the middle of Act One of the 2nd American Civil War
Act Two could be right around the corner
“There are decades when nothing happens, and there are weeks where decades happen.” – Vladimir Lenin, Russian communist
“The old world is dying, and the new world struggles to be born: now is the time of monsters.” – Antonio Gramsci, father of Cultural Marxism
What we have been watching play out on the streets of America’s cities the last two weeks are textbook revolutionary tactics. Problem is, too few Americans have read the textbook.
It’s important to understand: The scenes playing on stage number one, the streets of Seattle, Minneapolis, Portland, Atlanta and many other cities, as ugly as they may be, are only the first phase of the revolution. This is the prelude, which serves to disrupt and distract. It is but the opening act for what is coming next.
It’s not a foregone conclusion that we will proceed to Act Two, which will be much more violent and ugly than Act One. But right now, from where I stand, it’s looking like a 50-50 chance that we will.
Activist ringleaders with Black Lives Matter and Antifa have been hired to play the role of “disrupter.” Black Lives Matter is not bashful about its role as a communist agitator only marginally connected to black lives.
Red-state governors threaten their own citizens with arrest if they don’t comply with contact tracing investigators — up to six months in jail in Texas!
It was late morning on Tuesday, May 26, when James Daggett heard a knock on the door of his apartment home in Cedar Park, Texas, about 20 miles north of Austin.
When he answered it, two uniformed officers wearing badges and facemasks stood and stared.
One officer appeared to be a sheriff’s deputy and had a gun holstered on his side. The other wore a white uniform.
They said they had an important document to deliver that required his immediate attention.
The man in the white uniform handed him an envelope containing a letter from the Williamson County health department, demanding that he read it closely and follow its orders. What followed was a barrage of questions about his health, how many others he had living in his home, where he may have traveled recently.
As Daggett, 35, tore open the envelope and started to read the letter, the two men vanished from his doorstep as quickly as they had arrived.
