The Left’s Coup – In Your Face


COMMENT: Dear Martin,

In Portugal, we have since Q42015 a left government. The first 4 years were a Socialist government with a kind of explicit support of Communist and Extreme Left. Since last year’s elections, the Socialists are again in power but now with an implicit support from the other two left parties. Portugal enjoyed a “nice” economic recovery, despite this left coalition based on two major things: Gold Visa programme (a law from previous right Government) and Tourism. The Gold visa will be canceled soon because the left says it’s only for criminals/money laundering and tourism… well we know that’s going on!

Today reading the Extreme Left (Bloco de Esquerda) site I found the following on their main (!) page:
“…Containment of disease has three fundamental obstacles. Firstly, the negationism of national governments in the face of the pandemic. This was the case, in the first instance, with the government of China (which corrected its actions and is now active in the international articulation to stop it), but also with the US administration of Trump or the British government of Boris Johnson. This is the case with the Brazilian government, whose president classifies the pandemic crisis as “a matter of fantasy”. Secondly, economic globalisation – which has facilitated the rapid spread of the disease without matching multilateral cooperation instruments – makes it difficult to implement containment measures. Thirdly, containment requires measures to halt activity in several countries for long periods…”

No further comments! And Congrats for the Great work!

REPLY: This is really a highly coordinated coup by the left on an international level – USA & Europe. They all agreed that their targets have been Trump and Johnson as well as Merkel and the Netherlands. This is an all-out coup and they have deliberately used the rhetoric over this virus to make most people afraid to even go outside.

Shutting Down the Global Postal System


COMMENT: Dear Martin,

your public and private blog is the first I read every morning, it is my briefing.

I received this email today (31.03.2020) from a friend living in Switzerland about sending me a package via normal mail …

“this morning, I wanted to ship xxxxx and xxxxx to Greece, and as long as there is the virus blockade, there is no shipping possible.
Besides, at the post office, they gave me a flyer because of new, world-wide regulations of World Postal Union and International Post Corporation that letters up to 2 kg have to be digitally registered beforehand, since Jan. 2020, so that the recipient country knows about the content before shipping – the declaration can here be done online for free or at a post office with an extra fee….
But anyhow, they told me that they won’t be able to accept anything at the moment….
So the envelope will wait here until there is better “virus weather”…  ”

This coup d’etat is very real.

All the best from Greece.
Warmest and kindest regards H

REPLY: Yes, this is all about money. They want both taxes and to prevent people from shipping gold, cash, anything that can be used as a monetary instrument. Keep in mind you are also dealing with the lowest level of government workers. I tried to send as a gift a Roman coin in a necklace. They said it was illegal to send money in the mail. I tried to explain this was a Roman coin from a government that ended in 476AD. They said it was still money and illegal. I didn’t bother anymore. I took it back refiled the form and called it an antique and then it was fine.

The Injustice of the Justice System


Perhaps there has never been this sort of in-your-face abuse of power than what is going in in the justice system. Roger Stone is awaiting a 40-month prison sentence while Andrew McCabe enjoys life as a high-profile CNN commentator. Both made false statements, yet one is to go to prison and the other is untouchable. It does not stop there.

The whistleblower who created the Trump impeachment is so protected, and no one is allowed to even know his name. However, we have Julian Assange and Edward Snowden who they seek to imprison for life. There is something very wrong with the justice system. It has become a toy for political persecutions.

HOW TO REFORM THE LEGAL SYSTEM

I urge people to forward this to every politician you can and CC the White House. The justice system is out of control and ONLY the RICH can even afford to defend themselves. Congress can literally pass a law that you must kill your firstborn. They can do whatever they like. We have no right to even argue against such a law. The only person who would have such an opportunity must have what is called STANDING. That is created by the attempt of the government to ENFORCE the law. So in other words, if they prosecute your neighbor for refusing to kill their firstborn, you cannot go to court unless they prosecute you for the very same crime.

This is seriously a denial of Equal Protection of the Law. It allows for political and selective prosecution. They can put Stone in prison for life but they have the discretion not to prosecute McCabe. That is a gross injustice and it allows for political prosecutions as if we lived under Stalin.

The only way to solve this crisis is to REMOVE the discretion of prosecutors to indict people. They should submit their case to a committee in Washington that must approve every indictment. If this is done, then we can at least restore some justice to the system.

HOW TO REFORM THE SUPREME COURT

We then have the problem that Congress could pass a law that says you must kill your firstborn. They only way to challenge such a law is to defend against their attempt to prosecute you for violating that law. The Supreme Court should be expanded with another layer of Justices below who should rule on every law passed by Congress BEFORE it is enforced. In this manner, the poor are protected whereas only the rich can afford the tremendous cost to go all the way to the Supreme Court.

America needs a New Declaration of Equal Justice under the Law


The Emancipation Proclamation focused on equality

America needs a New Declaration of Equal Justice under the LawIn prior times of war, crisis, suffering and loss of life from causes outside the U.S., Americans of both parties would pull together and focus on what can be done to quickly help, alleviate and solve the problem.  No longer.  The COVID-19 crisis provides us a window into our national social and spiritual health, and what we see from much of America’s Left as expressed in the media and Democrat Party reveals a degree and strain of moral impoverishment we haven’t seen before.
The COVID-19 crisis in America will pass as all such virus epidemics do, but an overriding issue and question that will remain for the American future is: do we have sufficient courage and determination to successfully deal with the real internal threats and contradictions that jeopardize the future viability of the United States and its Constitution?

What has been allowed to grow in the American cultural and political petri dish over the last two generations is a mixture whose contagious influence is as harmful as it is riddled with absurdities.  A partial list would include:

  • an unequal two-tiered justice system;
  • open borders;
  • preferential treatment of illegal aliens over American citizens;
  • the dominance of political correctness and its de facto censorship of free expression;
  • fake news;
  • rewriting history;
  • the 1619 project;
  • renaming Columbus Day;
  • the abolition of traditions of every size and shape;
  • destruction of American historical monuments;
  • the trampling the American flag and other symbols of democracy;
  • the eradication of family values while celebrating and elevating relationships counterproductive to procreation

An imperative for any civilization that wants to survive; election fraud and dismantlement of the electoral process; an attempted coup that would have nullified the Constitution and the peoples’ sovereignty; a baseless and wasteful impeachment; the disgraceful character assassination of nominees to the Supreme Court; the pervasive infiltration of education with academics hostile to America; the adoption safe spaces and the prohibition of trigger words on college campuses; union control and influence on public school educational curricula whose net effect dumbs down students and often paints America as the great villain.

Any one of these is no little thing.  But together, the collective influence of all these factors presents us with a reality that is disheartening and threatening.  How did this happen and what are patriotic Americans to do?

We find ourselves in this perilous and incendiary state in large part because we were asleep or preoccupied, while over the last generations, internal enemies of America were gnawing away at our institutions and public civility—following the playbook of Italian communist Antonio Gramsci, the father of the “long march through the institutions.” Gramsci called for a gradual radicalization of the knowledge industry and the cultural institutions—“the superstructure of our society”—so as to transform the values and morals of society. Gramsci believed that as society’s morals were softened and confused, its political and economic foundation would be more easily transformed.  The evidence surrounding the current state of affairs confirms the validity of Gramsci’s theories and suggests he was right.

But the story is not over. 

It’s time for a new approach to fighting back with a more powerful playbook—one that the founders used at a time of overwhelming discouragement when odds of success were extremely low.  That same playbook was again used by Abraham Lincoln, a president who presided over a very divided nation and who was reviled by many, similar to today’s conditions.

Washington’s colonial army war efforts were disastrous in the first year. The first version of the Declaration of Independence—signed by just John Hancock, president of the Continental Congress and its secretary Charles Thompson, was the only version in circulation for the first six months after July 4, 1776.  But after Washington’s successful surprise attacks on Trenton and Princeton, the Declaration was edited, reprinted and rereleased with all 56 signatories, vowing “a firm reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence,” and “mutually pledg[ing] to each other our Lives our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” That declaration seems to have changed the fortune of the Continental Army and even determined the outcome of the War of Independence, even though the final Yorktown victory was still four years away.

Lincoln’s war efforts were largely unsuccessful in the first year and a half of the Civil War, and he struggled with the question of why, so far, the Almighty was permitting the bloodbath to continue with more favor being shown toward the South.  Through prayer, Lincoln had an epiphany of moral clarity.  He realized that it was not enough to win the war, put down secession and preserve the status quo of tolerance of slavery in the southern states, as he had stated in his First Inaugural address upon taking office.  He now realized the simple truth that if his objectives were aligned with God’s will and announced to all, that the Union would be blessed and prevail. And so it was that after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed into law on Jan. 1, 1863 that things on the ground began to change.

Whether we call it a Declaration or a Proclamation, a statement of moral clarity is needed to reestablish the foundation and fortress from which to fight and prevail. The Declaration of Independence focused on liberty.  The Emancipation Proclamation focused on equality.  Such a time as this would be well-served by a Declaration of Equal Justice under Law—the very words etched in stone on the front façade of the Supreme Court.

Our greatest advantage over the material secular progressive left is our connection with a higher power—a spiritual power.  Most of us take for granted and pay little heed to the words inscribed on all our currency—“In God we Trust.” A Declaration for Equal Justice under the Law would summon new help from the Divine and fundamentally change the future as it did in previous crisis times.  We should even ask and implore that such a Declaration lead to taking down America’s internal enemies and enable us to win the battles ahead for what is good and right.

German Treasury Secretary of Hesse Commits Suicide


It is with deep regret that the German Treasury Secretary of the federal state of Hesse, Thomas Schäfer, killed himself on March 28th, 2020. He oversaw Hesse‘s biggest city, Frankfurt, where we would hold our conferences and it remains the European capital for international banks. I know he was deeply concerned that this Coronavirus-Crisis was being used to destroy the economy. Thomas understood what was taking place and also understood he would not be able to deal with the absurd expectations of the general public about financial relief that was being pushed over a crisis that did not appear to warrant such a reaction.

Thomas was one of the good guys. My deepest condolences to his family. I understand his pessimism for what is to come post-Coronavirus. It is extremely difficult to watch something unfold and be unable to do anything to stop the momentum. Suicide becomes the option when it is just easier to leave than it is to stay.
