Blueprint for Victory for Americans

What Patriotic Americans Can Do to Resist the Destruction of Our Constitutional Republic

by Lawrence Sellin
June 22, 2022

First, recognize that the United States is not a functioning constitutional republic, but a government being deliberately transformed into a one-party totalitarian state.

The federal government, as an institution, is hopelessly corrupt and, although we have elections, we do not have a representative government. It cannot be reformed. It can only be ripped out and replaced.

Do not expect any top-down solutions for America’s problems to miraculously emerge from Washington D.C. The U.S. government has seceded from the people. Most members of Congress act more like foreign occupiers than executors of the views and needs of their constituents.

Angelo Codevilla noted that the United States already has a bona fide ruling class, which transcends government, a political aristocracy that sees itself as distinct from the rest of society and as the only element that may act on its behalf. The ruling class considers those who resist it as having no moral or intellectual right, and, now, any civil right as well.

Republican Party leaders neither contest that view nor vilify their Democrat counterparts because they do not want to challenge the ruling class, they want to be part of it.

The Republican leadership has solidified its choice to no longer represent what had been its constituency, but to adopt the identity of junior partners in the ruling class. By repeatedly passing bills that contradict the views of its voters, the Republican Party has made political orphans of tens of millions of Americans.

The only remaining course of action for patriotic American, who want to restore our constitutional republic, is a bottom-up political insurgency based on the Constitution and the Founding documents.

Foremost among them are the Second and Tenth Amendments.

The Second Amendment, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,” is now the only obstacle standing between freedom and the absolute tyranny the federal government now wishes to impose.

Buy firearms and lots of ammunition.

Identify constitutional sheriffs or law enforcement officers in your community and coordinate with them to form a “well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State.” That is, a militia capable of being deputized to fight against, not just criminality, but incursions by a tyrannical government.

Above all others, preserving the Second Amendment is the hill to die on.

The Second Amendment is not just the basis for the right of self-defense, but it is also the defense against tyranny and the guarantor of all other rights as the Founding Fathers recognized.

“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”

– Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th-century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

“To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them.”

– George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788.

The Tenth Amendment states:

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Refuse to comply with and actively resist unlawful and unconstitutional edicts from the federal government.

Remove and replace any local official acting contrary to the interests of the people. Take control of the local government, prosecutors, and school boards. Coordinate your activities with other similarly-acting communities in your region. Create Democrat Party- and Establishment Republican-free zones.

Give Democrats a taste of their own medicine. As much as local law will permit, arrest and prosecute or organize civil lawsuits against individuals or organizations engaged in the destruction of our constitutional republic.

Identify by name, address and photograph all illegal aliens in your community, which will facilitate their later deportation. Challenge all local employers who hire illegal aliens and any non-governmental organization facilitating the transport or support of illegal aliens in your community. Launch lawsuits when appropriate.

Strictly enforce Equal Opportunity. Expose and eliminate programs promoting grooming and sexualization of children, Critical Race Theory, and all similar forms of anti-American indoctrination.

Immediately, state out loud and often that Joe Biden is not a legitimate President of the United States, but a usurper, who was installed in office through an election stolen by organized voter fraud.

Until the November 3, 2020 election is satisfactorily addressed, there can be no election integrity and the United States will remain a banana, not a constitutional republic.

Admittedly, my list of actions by patriotic Americans to restore our constitutional republic is not exhaustive. Add your own ideas in the comments section.

In any case, the time for action is now. The collective effect of even the smallest acts of non-compliance can have an impact.

The 2d Amendment

The Second Amendment is the Inalienable Right from which All Other Rights Are Guaranteed
by Lawrence Sellin
June 20, 2022
Let me begin with one of the many clear and present dangers emanating from the hopelessly corrupt Washington D.C.
The Democrats are coming for America’s children, not just warping their minds through grooming and sexual indoctrination at a young age, but damaging their health as well.
The title of this Food and Drug Administration (FDA) press release should enrage every sane and responsible American.

“Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: FDA Authorizes Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccines for Children Down to 6 Months of Age”

Based on the scientific risk-benefit ratio for child vaccination, there are only two explanations for that decision.

Either U.S. government public health officials are dangerously incompetent and do not care if children are harmed or those officials are acting on the basis of political or financial motives and do not care if children are harmed.

First of all, a July 15, 2021, scientific article in the journal Nature stated unequivocally that:

“Studies find that overall risk of death or severe disease from COVID-19 is very low in kids.”

That is, the disease presents a very low risk to children. There are also reports that children are not a major factor in the spread of COVID-19 in households and schools.

Evidence is accumulating, however, that the COVID-19 vaccine risk to children exceeds the risk of the disease and that the U.S. government appears to be doctoring the data to justify FDA approval of the vaccines.

According to the June 1, 2022, scientific article “Serious Adverse Events of Special Interest Following mRNA Vaccination in Randomized Trials:”

“Combined, the mRNA vaccines were associated with an absolute risk increase of serious adverse events of special interest of 12.5 per 10,000 (95% CI 2.1 to 22.9). The excess risk of serious adverse events of special interest surpassed the risk reduction for COVID-19 hospitalization relative to the placebo group in both Pfizer and Moderna trials (2.3 and 6.4 per 10,000 participants, respectively).”

Among those serious adverse events is myocarditis, that is, dangerous, potentially fatal heart damage in young people, demonstrated in an April 22, 2022, scientific study involving 23 million northern European subjects.

Remarkably, with the sole exception of Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, all state governors endorsed the FDA recommendation, paving the way for possible COVID-19 vaccine mandates for 6-month-old infants.

This brings me to my point.

Whether a criminal is making a forced entry into your house or the FBI arrives at your home to forcibly inject something into your children’s bodies at gunpoint, Americans have, not just the right, but the obligation to defend themselves.

After the publication of my Gateway Pundit article “To Restore the American Constitutional Republic, the American Oligarchy Must Be Overthrown,” a county sheriff wrote to me and made the argument better than I could have:

“Too many generations have gone by with people living securely under what they perceived to be government protection. As an example of this, when I was Sheriff I used to teach an NRA home defense course for concealed carry. I would point out early in the instruction that it was not the responsibility of the sheriff’s office to defend citizens from home invasion or attack. It was always entertaining to watch the reaction of the students to that statement from their sheriff. To the natives, this was common knowledge. To anyone who was a transplant from a more urban environment, the shock on their face was easy to recognize. I would always repeat that statement until the hands would start shooting up and then I could explain that a free people armed with their rights are fully expected to defend themselves, their families and their property.”

That is, the purpose of the Second Amendment is to ensure that free citizens have the right to defend themselves from bodily harm whether that be from criminals or government tyranny.

There is no more chilling example of the lack of government protection than the Uvalde, Texas school shooting. Surveillance footage shows that for a critical 77 minutes when lives could have been saved, the police never tried to open the door to the classrooms at Robb Elementary School, where a gunman had students and teachers trapped.

Yet, in defiance of the Constitution and our inalienable right to self-defense, the Republican Party leadership is working with the Democrats to install “red flag” laws across the country, which violate, not just the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms, but the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition of illegal search and seizure and the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee of due process.

Even without federal legislation, we are witnessing the implementation of “red flag” laws, which the U.S. Supreme Court, just last year, declared unconstitutional in a 9-0 decision.

The Democrat Party’s U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Columbia, Robin M. Meriweather, ordered that Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate Ryan Kelley not be allowed to possess a firearm or travel out of state, while he faces federal misdemeanor charges related to the so-called January 6, 2021 “insurrection,” arguably a Capitol breach instigated by federal officials themselves. Not surprisingly, Judge Meriweather served as a law clerk for Merrick B. Garland, presently occupying the position of U.S. Attorney General.

The Democrats, with the support of the Republican Party leadership, are now attempting to strip away what they consider the last obstacle to absolute tyranny, the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms.

We are on our own and we are already on the hill to die on.

Restoring America

To Restore the American Constitutional Republic, the American Oligarchy Must Be Overthrown

by Lawrence Sellin
June 18, 2022

Yes, continue to vote, but do not expect the predicted electoral “red wave” of Congressional Republicans to change the status quo in Washington D.C.

The Republican Party, led by Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell and Republican House leader Kevin McCarthy, remains tightly in the grip of the oligarchy, which in 1993 Lewis Lapham described as:

“that 2% of the population who own the media and the banks, manage the government, operate the universities, print the money, write the laws and, every four years, hire a President.”

The Republican and Democrat parties, as presently constituted, do not want the United States to function as a constitutional republic accountable to the people because it inhibits their ability to accrue personal power and profit for themselves and their financial backers.

From a governance perspective, the American oligarchy is philosophically in-line with the globalists of the World Economic Forum and the leaders of the Chinese Communist Party.

They all want a global order composed of lords and serfs, where there are no sovereign nations, just land and people to exploit.

Call it communism, globalism or, as I like to say, Neo-Feudalism.

In practice, they are distinctions without differences, all authoritarian, in which individual rights are not unalienable bestowed by the Creator, but temporary indulgences granted by an otherwise oppressive, de facto one-party state.

Stated simply, an oligarchy is incompatible with a functioning constitutional republic. They are mutually exclusive.

Today, what is the true state of the union of the United States of America, for which the American oligarchy, represented by the Democrat and Republican parties, is responsible?

For ordinary Americans, it is a dystopia sustained by an election system riddled with fraud.

As a result, Joe Biden was installed in the White House, who many believe is a usurper placed in power through a coup that occurred on November 3, 2020 in the form of a stolen election.

That initial usurpation of authority, as the Declaration of Independence similarly described, has led to “a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny.”

Upon seizing power, the illegitimate Biden regime immediately launched an aggressive agenda to complete Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the country, one deliberately designed to create chaos through the controlled demolition of the economy, the Constitution, the Middle Class and the American family, a process aimed at fostering tyranny.

Biden’s injuries, usurpations and unconstitutional actions include, but are not limited to:

  • Weaponizing the Department of Justice and the FBI to punish political opponents and create a two-tier justice system;
  • Ending American energy independence;
  • Manufacturing skyrocketing inflation;
  • Unlawfully opening the border to promote uncontrolled illegal immigration;
  • Undermining readiness and pursuing a Stalin-like purge to produce a politicized military;
  • Together with the Republican Party leadership, simultaneously attacking the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms, the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition of illegal search and seizure and the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee of due process, by promoting “red flag” laws, which the Supreme Court, in a 9-0 decision, declared unconstitutional just last year;
  • Destroying public trust in science and medicine through unnecessary and arguably illegal lock-downs, vaccine mandates and selectively editing health information, thereby crippling the requirement for informed consent, while facilitating Big Pharma greed;
  • Conspiring with media, Big Tech, corporations, educational institutions and compliant members of the Republican Party to subvert the First Amendment, censor public discourse and establish an uncontested left-wing ideological narrative to replace the values and traditions upon which the United States was built.

The most elemental form of submission to tyranny is accepting, as reality, claims that are patently false, which is nearly everything now emanating from U.S. government sources.

As a start, Americans need to recognize that the federal government, as an institution, is hopelessly corrupt. It cannot be reformed. It can only be ripped out and replaced through a bottom-up political insurgency with leaders that truly represent and are accountable to the people.

That effort begins with the words “I will not comply.”

US Government Wages War on its People

John Whitehead’s Commentary

Everything Is a Weapon: The U.S. Government Is Waging Psychological Warfare on the Nation

John Whitehead

Have you ever wondered who’s pulling the strings? … Anything we touch is a weapon. We can deceive, persuade, change, influence, inspire. We come in many forms. We are everywhere.”— U.S. Army Psychological Operations recruitment video

The U.S. government is waging psychological warfare on the American people.

No, this is not a conspiracy theory.

Psychological warfare, according to the Rand Corporation, “involves the planned use of propaganda and other psychological operations to influence the opinions, emotions, attitudes, and behavior of opposition groups.”

For years now, the government has been bombarding the citizenry with propaganda campaigns and psychological operations aimed at keeping us compliant, easily controlled and supportive of the police state’s various efforts abroad and domestically.

The government is so confident in its Orwellian powers of manipulation that it’s taken to bragging about them. Just recently, for example, the U.S. Army’s 4th Psychological Operations Group, the branch of the military responsible for psychological warfare, released a recruiting video that touts its efforts to pull the strings, turn everything they touch into a weapon, be everywhere, deceive, persuade, change, influence, and inspire.

This is the danger that lurks in plain sight.

Of the many weapons in the government’s vast arsenal, psychological warfare may be the most devastating in terms of the long-term consequences.

As the military journal Task and Purpose explains, “Psychological warfare is all about influencing governments, people of power, and everyday citizens… PSYOP soldiers’ key missions are to influence ‘emotions, notices, reasoning, and behavior of foreign governments and citizens,’ ‘deliberately deceive’ enemy forces, advise governments, and provide communications for disaster relief and rescue efforts.”

Yet don’t be fooled into thinking these psyops (psychological operations) campaigns are only aimed at foreign enemies. The government has made clear in word and deed that “we the people” are domestic enemies to be targeted, tracked, manipulated, micromanaged, surveilled, viewed as suspects, and treated as if our fundamental rights are mere privileges that can be easily discarded.

Aided and abetted by technological advances and scientific experimentation, the government has been subjecting the American people to “apple-pie propaganda” for the better part of the last century.

Consider some of the ways in which the government continues to wage psychological warfare on a largely unsuspecting citizenry.

Weaponizing violence. With alarming regularity, the nation continues to be subjected to spates of violence that terrorizes the public, destabilizes the country’s ecosystem, and gives the government greater justifications to crack down, lock down, and institute even more authoritarian policies for the so-called sake of national security without many objections from the citizenry.

Weaponizing surveillance, pre-crime and pre-thought campaigns. Surveillance, digital stalking and the data mining of the American people add up to a society in which there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence. When the government sees all and knows all and has an abundance of laws to render even the most seemingly upstanding citizen a criminal and lawbreaker, then the old adage that you’ve got nothing to worry about if you’ve got nothing to hide no longer applies. Add pre-crime programs into the mix with government agencies and corporations working in tandem to determine who is a potential danger and spin a sticky spider-web of threat assessments, behavioral sensing warnings, flagged “words,” and “suspicious” activity reports using automated eyes and ears, social media, behavior sensing software, and citizen spies, and you having the makings for a perfect dystopian nightmare. The government’s war on crime has now veered into the realm of social media and technological entrapment, with government agents adopting fake social media identities and AI-created profile pictures in order to surveil, target and capture potential suspects.

Weaponizing digital currencies, social media scores and censorship. Tech giants, working with the government, have been meting out their own version of social justice by way of digital tyranny and corporate censorship, muzzling whomever they want, whenever they want, on whatever pretext they want in the absence of any real due process, review or appeal. Unfortunately, digital censorship is just the beginning. Digital currencies (which can be used as “a tool for government surveillance of citizens and control over their financial transactions”), combined with social media scores and surveillance capitalism create a litmus test to determine who is worthy enough to be part of society and punish individuals for moral lapses and social transgressions (and reward them for adhering to government-sanctioned behavior). In China, millions of individuals and businesses, blacklisted as “unworthy” based on social media credit scores that grade them based on whether they are “good” citizens, have been banned from accessing financial markets, buying real estate or travelling by air or train.

Weaponizing compliance. Even the most well-intentioned government law or program can be—and has been—perverted, corrupted and used to advance illegitimate purposes once profit and power are added to the equation. The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on COVID-19, the war on illegal immigration, asset forfeiture schemes, road safety schemes, school safety schemes, eminent domain: all of these programs started out as legitimate responses to pressing concerns and have since become weapons of compliance and control in the police state’s hands.

Weaponizing entertainment. For the past century, the Department of Defense’s Entertainment Media Office has provided Hollywood with equipment, personnel and technical expertise at taxpayer expense. In exchange, the military industrial complex has gotten a starring role in such blockbusters as Top Gun and its rebooted sequel Top Gun: Maverick, which translates to free advertising for the war hawks, recruitment of foot soldiers for the military empire, patriotic fervor by the taxpayers who have to foot the bill for the nation’s endless wars, and Hollywood visionaries working to churn out dystopian thrillers that make the war machine appear relevant, heroic and necessary. As Elmer Davis, a CBS broadcaster who was appointed the head of the Office of War Information, observed, “The easiest way to inject a propaganda idea into most people’s minds is to let it go through the medium of an entertainment picture when they do not realize that they are being propagandized.”

Weaponizing behavioral science and nudging. Apart from the overt dangers posed by a government that feels justified and empowered to spy on its people and use its ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and technology to monitor and control them, there’s also the covert dangers associated with a government empowered to use these same technologies to influence behaviors en masse and control the populace. In fact, it was President Obama who issued an executive order directing federal agencies to use “behavioral science” methods to minimize bureaucracy and influence the way people respond to government programs. It’s a short hop, skip and a jump from a behavioral program that tries to influence how people respond to paperwork to a government program that tries to shape the public’s views about other, more consequential matters. Thus, increasingly, governments around the world—including in the United States—are relying on “nudge units” to steer citizens in the direction the powers-that-be want them to go, while preserving the appearance of free will.

Weaponizing desensitization campaigns aimed at lulling us into a false sense of security. The events of recent years—the invasive surveillance, the extremism reports, the civil unrest, the protests, the shootings, the bombings, the military exercises and active shooter drills, the lockdowns, the color-coded alerts and threat assessments, the fusion centers, the transformation of local police into extensions of the military, the distribution of military equipment and weapons to local police forces, the government databases containing the names of dissidents and potential troublemakers—have conspired to acclimate the populace to accept a police state willingly, even gratefully.

Weaponizing fear and paranoia. The language of fear is spoken effectively by politicians on both sides of the aisle, shouted by media pundits from their cable TV pulpits, marketed by corporations, and codified into bureaucratic laws that do little to make our lives safer or more secure. Fear, as history shows, is the method most often used by politicians to increase the power of government and control a populace, dividing the people into factions, and persuading them to see each other as the enemy. This Machiavellian scheme has so ensnared the nation that few Americans even realize they are being manipulated into adopting an “us” against “them” mindset. Instead, fueled with fear and loathing for phantom opponents, they agree to pour millions of dollars and resources into political elections, militarized police, spy technology and endless wars, hoping for a guarantee of safety that never comes. All the while, those in power—bought and paid for by lobbyists and corporations—move their costly agendas forward, and “we the suckers” get saddled with the tax bills and subjected to pat downs, police raids and round-the-clock surveillance.

Weaponizing genetics. Not only does fear grease the wheels of the transition to fascism by cultivating fearful, controlled, pacified, cowed citizens, but it also embeds itself in our very DNA so that we pass on our fear and compliance to our offspring. It’s called epigenetic inheritance, the transmission through DNA of traumatic experiences. For example, neuroscientists observed that fear can travel through generations of mice DNA. As The Washington Post reports, “Studies on humans suggest that children and grandchildren may have felt the epigenetic impact of such traumatic events such as famine, the Holocaust and the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.”

Weaponizing the future. With greater frequency, the government has been issuing warnings about the dire need to prepare for the dystopian future that awaits us. For instance, the Pentagon training video, “Megacities: Urban Future, the Emerging Complexity,” predicts that by 2030 (coincidentally, the same year that society begins to achieve singularity with the metaverse) the military would be called on to use armed forces to solve future domestic political and social problems. What they’re really talking about is martial law, packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security. The chilling five-minute training video paints an ominous picture of the future bedeviled by “criminal networks,” “substandard infrastructure,” “religious and ethnic tensions,” “impoverishment, slums,” “open landfills, over-burdened sewers,” a “growing mass of unemployed,” and an urban landscape in which the prosperous economic elite must be protected from the impoverishment of the have nots. “We the people” are the have-nots.

The end goal of these mind control campaigns—packaged in the guise of the greater good—is to see how far the American people will allow the government to go in re-shaping the country in the image of a totalitarian police state.

The facts speak for themselves.

Whatever else it may be—a danger, a menace, a threat—the U.S. government is certainly not looking out for our best interests, nor is it in any way a friend to freedom.

When the government views itself as superior to the citizenry, when it no longer operates for the benefit of the people, when the people are no longer able to peacefully reform their government, when government officials cease to act like public servants, when elected officials no longer represent the will of the people, when the government routinely violates the rights of the people and perpetrates more violence against the citizenry than the criminal class, when government spending is unaccountable and unaccounted for, when the judiciary act as courts of order rather than justice, and when the government is no longer bound by the laws of the Constitution, then you no longer have a government “of the people, by the people and for the people.”

What we have is a government of wolves.

Our backs are against the proverbial wall.

“We the people”—who think, who reason, who take a stand, who resist, who demand to be treated with dignity and care, who believe in freedom and justice for all—have become undervalued citizens of a totalitarian state that views people as expendable once they have outgrown their usefulness to the State.

Brace yourselves.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, “we the people” have become enemies of the Deep State.
