If you think the spreading chaos we’ve seen in Seattle, Minneapolis, and Portland is about over, think again.
This week, violence shifted to Kenosha, Wisconsin, where the city has been under siege following an officer involved shooting of a man with a history that allegedly includes violence against police, a sex crime, domestic abuse, and more.
Again, the usual leftist groups and other bad actors arrived in force pitting themselves against groups of armed citizens and business owners trying to protect their property. The police, overrun and hamstrung by weak civic leaders, have been largely ineffective to quell the violence.
It's just one more powder keg in a string of others that has exploded according to plan. And it won't be the last.
The violence in Kenosha and other cities has the internet ablaze asking whether a Second Civil War or some other conflict is coming.
My friends, it’s already here.
While there was no shot heard 'round the world in 1776 style, insurgent groups have been long organizing, indoctrinating, and fomenting discontent, waiting until the opportune time to strike.
In essence, what we're seeing from events like Seattle, Minneapolis, Portland, is what we call in military terms a low-intensity conflict.
A low intensity conflict is a limited politico-military struggle designed to achieve political, social, and economic objectives.
These conflicts complex in are lengthy in duration. And if we're not already in one, we're getting dangerously close.
The conflict is occurring regionally with the epicenters being the major urban areas. In time, these conflicts could spill out to the suburbs and rural areas.
I don't we're going to see a true Civil War erupt - where two distinct sides, armed and organized, engage the other kinetically for power and territory. I actually wish that were the case in a sense. It would be simpler to prepare for.
Instead, we're more likely to see a Balkanization of groups based on region and centered around shared values and beliefs. And that, I can tell you by experience is a horse of another color.
The questions I have right now are:
I can't answer these questions right now, but we can use intelligence gathering and analysis to guide our planning.
As I've said in the past, these Marxist groups have an agenda that goes far beyond “social justice.” If they come to power, they will immediately proceed to implement their agenda for a “New America” (their words, not mine.)
If they lose, expect a full court press of violence, protests, and lawsuits challenging the election results with months of ensuing chaos to follow.
This is a winnable war, but we need to go on the offense.
Next week, I'll give you some concrete steps you can take to reduce uncertainty and move forward in these uncertain times.
Until then, stay sharp.
