Millie Weaver Arrest & Shadow Gate

Millie Weaver was arrested August 14 suspiciously close to the release of her Documentary “SHADOW GATE” exposing Deep State operations in the U.S. Government. It turns out Weaver’s arrest isn’t directly related to Shadow Gate, but is tied to a domestic issue between Millie, Millie’s brother and boyfriend versus Millie’s mother over a dispute over a cell phone.

 

I’ve tried to garner info on the arrests and the reason for such from various websites, but they are lacking on details focusing on arrest, jail and arraignment. The Center-Left website Heavy.com seems to me to provide the most judicious details making an effort to show the accused, Millie’s mother and Prosecutor’s perspective.

 

Reading/listening to all perspectives there appears to be a wide gulf of versions, but what strikes me is the mother made a huge effort to call off her complaint and the Prosecution proceeded anyway. That reeks of political witch hunt to me in which lawyers get richer, government Prosecutors use taxpayer money resources and an outcome that will probably end in exoneration of assault but a huge political effort to find guilt regarding handling of evidence. The evidence issue usually means Obstruction for Conservatives, a charge the Dems and Leftists have been dodging for decades.

 

This is how this post will play out. I am beginning with the Heavy.com reporting, toss in some less informative websites and culminate with an embed of Millie Weaver’s Shadow Gate. You should be made aware at this point Shadow Gate has been uploaded to various video formats. A Youtube version was attempted but I understand the Youtube censors have banned it. So appropriately I am using the Banned Video format in my embed (unfortunately I have not figured out how to embed Banned Video on my WordPress blog, ergo those readers will be stuck with a link).

Millie Weaver: Ohio Arrest Related to Altercation With Her Mother, Court Docs Show

Millie Weaver was arrested on August 14 on charges of robbery and domestic violence.

 

Millie Weaver, an Infowars contributor and conservative filmmaker, is facing criminal charges because of a dispute with her mother, Portage County court documents confirm.

 

Weaver, along with her partner Gavin Wince and younger brother Charles Weaver, was arrested on August 14 in front of her two young children at her home in northeastern Ohio. She was detained hours before she was scheduled to release a documentary on YouTube called Shadow Gate. Court records show she was released from custody at 2:25 p.m. on August 17 on a personal recognizance bond.

 

In a trailer for the film, Weaver claimed she had spoken with two whistleblowers who had knowledge of an orchestrated “coup” against President Donald Trump. The timing of her arrest prompted conspiracy theories online, with critics questioning whether the arrest was related to the documentary.

 

The indictment, which was made available August 17 on the Portage County Clerk of Courts website, states Weaver was charged in connection to an altercation with her mother on April 25, 2020.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

 

  1. Weaver Is Accused of Helping Wince & Her Brother Tackle Her Mother, Felicia McCarron, in Order to Get Her Phone

Millicent F. Weaver is facing felony charges because of a dispute with her mother, Felicia McCarron. The indictment, handed down by a Portage County Grand Jury, shows that the altercation happened on April 25, 2020. McCarron’s first name was spelled “Felecia” in the indictment but a search of online records shows she spells her name “Felicia.”

 

According to the criminal complaint, which Heavy obtained from the county prosecutor, McCarron had been living at the Portage County home for about a month at the time of the confrontation. She moved in after the coronavirus pandemic forced her employer in California to shut down. The report states that on April 25, McCarron was texting with a religious leader “about her daughter being mean.” McCarron accused Weaver of calling her names. Deputies said they confirmed McCarron had sent a text message to her Bishop 26 minutes before dialing 911.

 

McCarron told deputies she started recording on her phone because she wanted to document how the family treated her. She claimed her son, Charles, along with Wince and Weaver, tackled her to the ground in order to steal her phone. McCarron ran out of the house and used a neighbor’s phone to call 911. McCarron added that she saw Charles run to the back of the property and she assumed he was hiding her phone.

In a separate interview with responding deputies, Weaver denied her mother’s allegations. She claimed McCarron had lost her phone two days earlier and was upset about it. Weaver described her mother as “mentally ill and not reliable.” Weaver claimed her mother had threatened the rest of the family with a knife, put it away, and then ran outside the house yelling about calling the police. Weaver told deputies they had considered calling 911 themselves but ultimately decided against it.

 

Millie Weaver criminal complaint – Portage County Sheriff

 

Weaver is accused of threatening to harm McCarron during the course of a robbery, which is a second-degree felony. The indictment from the Portage County Grand Jury states:

 

In attempting or committing a theft offense, or in fleeing immediately after the attempt or offense, recklessly inflict, attempt to inflict, or threaten to inflict physical harm upon Felicia McCarron.

 

Weaver is further accused of attempting to destroy evidence related to the dispute, a third-degree felony:

 

Knowing that an official proceeding or investigation is in progress, or is about to be or likely to be instituted did, alter, destroy, conceal or removed a record, document or thing with the purpose to impair its value or availability as evidence in such proceeding or investigation.

 

The third count is obstructing justice, which is a fifth-degree felony charge:

 

With purpose to hinder the discovery, apprehension, prosecution, conviction, or punishment of Millicent F. Weaver, Charles L. Weaver Jr and/o Facebookr Gavon S. Wince for a crime or to assist another to benefit from the commission of a crime, communicate false information to (any person), and the crime committed by the person aided is a felony of the fifth, fourth or third degree.

 

The fourth charge is a first-degree misdemeanor count of domestic violence. The Grand Jury found probable cause that Weaver had “recklessly caused serious physical harm to the family or household member.”

 

  1. A Person Claiming to Be Weaver’s Mother Wrote on YouTube the Dispute Was About a $50 Cellphone

Weaver’s mother has weighed in on her daughter’s arrest. A woman claiming to be Felicia McCarron posted a comment on a YouTube video that was published by “The Official Hagmann Report” on August 14. The comment links back to an account that appears to belong to McCarron.

 

McCarron described the situation as a “family dispute” and that the robbery pertained to a $50 cellphone. McCarron claimed she had asked local authorities to drop the charges several weeks before Weaver’s arrest:

 

This is Millie’s mother … It’s my cell phone worth about $50, that she took during a family dispute that happened months ago when I was in Ohio visiting my family. She took it because I had my phone on record during an argument we were having. We resolved the issue immediately and I dropped all charges right after it happened before I left Ohio … because it was a gross misunderstanding and no harm was done.

 

All families have their disagreements…especially during a quarantine…. In Ca nothing happens when you call the police…..I am shocked my family was arrested after I told the police to drop all charges months ago. I had a general affidavit of non prosecution notarized today and I spoke with the police chief , who told me I could not do anything until Monday morning and my daughter, son and her boyfriend have to stay in jail over the weekend. I am extremely upset… this is not what I wanted to happen. I think they have a lot bigger fish to fry…makes me think this might have been done to prevent her from coming out with some political information she is covering. There was no reason for this.

 

  1. The Arrest Warrant Was Issued Nearly Four Weeks Before Weaver Was Detained

 

Millie Weaver Arrest Warrant – Secret Indictment Portage County Sheriff

 

The warrant for Weaver’s arrest was filed nearly four weeks before it was executed, Portage County court documents prove. The warrant, which can be viewed here, states that the indictment against Weaver was filed in Portage County Common Pleas Court on July 20, 2020.

 

The document was stamped by Clerk of Courts Jill Frankhauser. It includes the following language: “Bring said person before said Court without unnecessary delay.” It’s unclear why it took the sheriff’s department 25 days to carry out the arrest.

 

The warrant was labeled as a “secret indictment.” Under Ohio law, this simply means the indictment is kept sealed until after the defendant has been apprehended by law enforcement.

 

Weaver live-streamed the interaction with deputies when they came to her home on Yale Road to arrest her. In the clip, Weaver repeatedly asked why she was under arrest and expressed surprise when told that she had been indicted by a grand jury. One of the deputies eventually answered that Weaver was being arrested for burglary but did not appear to have more information at the time. (The charge turned out to be robbery, not burglary).

 

During the arrest, Weaver explained into the camera, “Guys, I’m literally about to break huge breaking news right now. I’m being arrested and I have no idea why.”

 

  1. Weaver Was Released on a Personal Recognizance Bond

 

Millie Weaver Bond P.R. – Portage County Sheriff

 

Weaver, Wince, and her brother Charles Weaver were arrested on August 14 and booked into the Portage County Jail. They remained behind bars without bond over the weekend.

 

Court records show all three were scheduled to appear before Judge Becky Doherty in the Portage County Common Pleas Court at 11am on August 17 for a formal arraignment.

 

Court documents show Prosecutor Victor Vigluicci recommended bond be set at $20,000. The document recommended Weaver be required to post at least 10 percent of the total in order to be released from custody.

Judge Doherty agreed to set bond at $20,000 but the court document shows it is a personal recognizance bond. This means Weaver agrees to return to court for future hearings and can be released from custody without needing to pay money to the court. She would owe that money if she failed to appear in court.

Court records initially listed Canton, Ohio, defense attorney Eugene O’Byrne, as Weaver’s lawyer. Attorney Troy Reeves has since been added to the court filing to represent Weaver.

 

Weaver entered a “not guilty” plea through her attorney. A discovery hearing was scheduled for September 9 and the criminal pre-trial hearing was set for October 21.

 

  1. Felicia McCarron Lives in California & Previously Worked in Real Estate

Weaver was born in San Bernardino and her mother is still located in southern California. Felicia McCarron previously worked in real estate, according to records with the California Department of Real Estate. Records show McCarron was a licensed salesperson from 2001 until 2013 but did not renew her license after that.

 

McCarron’s public Facebook page has not been updated since 2014. According to the page, she worked for the OC Weekly newspaper, but it’s unclear in what capacity.

 

Weaver pursued a career in the entertainment industry in the early 2010s as a model and singer, and her mother commented on those efforts on Facebook. In February 2011, McCarron announced that Millie and her sister, Minna, had debuted a single called “Hollywood Here We Come.” McCarron wrote in a second post, “Minna and Millie will be performing on the 23rd in Beverly Hills at the Pre-Academy Award/Breast Cancer Awareness Event, Hosted by David Harrison Levi.”

Millie Weaver and her co-defendants are freed on bond

Conservative new media personality Millicent (Millie) Weaver, AKA Millennial Millie, had her day in court Monday morning via a live Zoom video stream from jail in northeastern Ohio after being arrested last Friday and spending the weekend locked up. As cleveland dot com reported Monday afternoon:

 

Millie Weaver and two others pleaded not guilty at a Monday arraignment in Portage County Common Pleas Court on felony charges including robbery that stem from an April altercation with Weaver’s mother, according to court records.

 

Portage County Common Pleas Court Judge Becky Doherty set Weaver’s bond at $20,000 and ordered her released on her own recognizance. Weaver’s boyfriend Gavin Wince and brother Charles Weaver pleaded not guilty to the same charges and were issued the same bond.

 

The news of Millie Weaver’s arrest and detention on Friday, August 14 — reported in my two previous posts at American Thinker here and here — received wide attention.  Contributing to that interest were Weaver’s large fan base and the fact that her arrest occurred suspiciously close to the release date of her documentary film Shadow Gate.  The 82-minute-long movie promised new revelations about the Deep State, specifically an exposé of the “operational role the shadow government played behind the scenes carrying out the coup against President Trump.”  The documentary wound up being uploaded to YouTube on Friday by Tore Maras Lindeman, who appears in the film as one of two whistleblowers.  Before it was deleted (AKA censored) from YouTube, the film had accumulated 1.3 million views.  Copies of Shadow Gate are all over the internet now, including at a censor-free site here.

 

Unconfirmed reports are that Millie Weaver’s and Gavin Wince’s two young children were returned to the couple after spending the weekend in the custody of child protective services.

 

Portage County prosecutor Victor Vigluicci said Monday that he did not know who Millie Weaver was prior to her arrest and that the case had “nothing to do with her political beliefs or whatever she chooses to publish.”  According to cleveland dot com, Weaver is being represented by Canton, Ohio attorney Eugene O’Byrne, who has not replied so far to any media inquiries.

 

A copy of the indictment of Millie Weaver and her arrest warrant, issued by the Court of Common Pleas, Portage County, Ohio on July 20, was made public on Monday and can be viewed here.

 

Millie Weaver speaks with Tore Maras Lindeman in a video call from jail, August 16, 2020.

 

Millie Weaver’s friend and collaborator on Shadow Gate, Tore Maras Lindeman, posted the audio of her August 16 15-minute-long conversation with Millie Weaver while Weaver was in jail.  The audio can be accessed here.  The sound begins at the 2 minute and 12 second mark.

 

This story is far from over.  In addition to the disposition of the case against the three defendants, my research and deep dive into open source records have turned up some new and interesting insights into the whole affair surrounding the arrest and the film Shadow Gate.  Watch for further reports here at American Thinker.

Investigative Journalist ‘Millennial’ Millie Weaver Released from Ohio Jail, November Trial Set

Millicent F. Weaver, 29, known in digital circles and on social feeds as Millennial Millie was arrested in a Diamond, Ohio home on Friday August 14.

 

Weaver’s boyfriend, Gavin Wince, 46, and brother Charles Weaver, 26, were also arrested. A Portage County Grand Jury issued secret arrest warrants for all three charging them with robbery, tampering with evidence, obstruction of justice and domestic violence.

 

Weaver captured her arrest on video that was later released on Twitter by YouTube sensation Mark Dice.  In the video, Weaver asks why she is being arrested and the officer can be heard saying ““I’ll give you all your paperwork when we get to the jail.”

 

Millie goes on to say, “I’m literally about to break huge breaking news right now and I’m being arrested, and I have no idea why.”

 

The breaking news she referred to in her arrest video is her investigative report Shadowgate, which released Friday.

 

The Ohio Star talked with Millie Weaver and she said she was instructed to not comment on the case.

 

Weaver’s case is State of Ohio v. Millicent F. Weaver and is an open case that will be adjudicated by Portage County Common Pleas Court Judge Becky L. Doherty. During Monday’s arraignment, Judge Doherty set bond for Weaver at $20,000 but released her on her own recognizance.

 

Shadowgate introduces two people who both claim to have been private contractors working for private companies that siphon digital information (web traffic, text messages, phone calls) collected by the National Security Agency (NSA), the national-level intelligence agency of the United States Department of Defense.

 

According to the whistleblowers, information collected by the NSA is mirrored, or duplicated. That duplicated data, it is alleged, is retained by contractors who sell it to people who use it for nefarious purposes. Those purposes include using data in psychological operations deployed through mainstream and social media outlets to influence elections, and as a source of blackmail to bully opponents of political initiatives.

 

Charles Weaver and Gavin Wince were also released Monday on their own recognizance.

 

The trial date is set for November 2, the day before the 2020 United States Presidential election.

Fired NSC Aide Reveals Political Warfare Operation Targeting Trump


Does anyone besides me think it odd that pro-Trump Conservatives are being fired as leakers and/or resistant to the Trump agenda to make America great again?

 

Under the management of National Security Advisor H.  R. McMaster, several pro-Trump National Security Council (NSC) staffers have been fired over conflicts with their NSC bosses who seem to suspiciously support Obama’s deficient policies. The Washington Free Beacon names Rich Higgins, Derek Harvey and Ezra Cohen-Watnick as fired.

 

The Free Beacon article below emphasizes the firing of Rich Higgins for his memo on a Marxist Deep State in the U.S. Government, Leftist MSM and Pro-Islamists working to undo President Trump’s election and agenda. Also, the Free Beacon alludes H.R. McMaster is a part of the problem in the Deep State Memo.

Fired NSC Aide Reveals Political Warfare Operation Targeting Trump

Higgins memo warns of Marxist, Deep State subversion

A White House National Security Council official has charged that leftist opponents of President Trump are engaged in political warfare operations designed to subvert his presidency and drive him from office.

 

Rich Higgins, until recently director of strategic planning at the NSC, revealed the program in a seven-page memorandum produced in May that warns of a concerted information warfare campaign by the Marxist left, Islamists, and political leaders and government officials opposed to the populist president.

 

“The Trump administration is suffering under withering information campaigns designed to first undermine, then delegitimize and ultimately remove the president,” Higgins states.

 

“This is not politics as usual but rather political warfare at an unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a seated president through manipulation of the news cycle,” he said.

 

Higgins, an Army veteran and former Pentagon official who specialized in irregular warfare and who was dismissed last month for writing the memo, said the attacks should not be confused with normal partisan political attacks or adversarial media attention.

 

The former aide criticized the White House for failing to counter the activities and said the political warfare attacks threaten the Trump presidency.

 

“The White House response to these campaigns reflects a political advocacy mindset that it is intensely reactive, severely under-inclusive and dangerously inadequate to the threat,” he said. “If action is not taken to re-scope and respond to these hostile campaigns very soon, the administration risks implosion and subsequent early departure from the White House.”

 

Higgins was fired by Deputy National Security Adviser Ricky Waddell July 21 after the memo came to Waddell’s attention as part of an internal search for leaks from the staff.

 

Higgins’s firing, along with that of two other NSC conservatives, Derek Harvey and Ezra Cohen-Watnick, has set off political infighting and charges from conservatives that National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster is opposing Trump’s populist policies in favor of maintaining the policies of the former Obama administration.

 

Harvey, a retired Army colonel, recently complained to McMaster about the large number of officials who were kept on at the NSC from the Obama administration. He was told by McMaster that he has a “leadership problem,” according to people close to the matter.

 

Cohen-Watnick was senior director for intelligence programs at the NSC and ran afoul of McMaster because of his conservative views.

 

A White House official said McMaster appears to be trying to clear out anyone from the NSC staff who is outspokenly pro-Trump and has been slow-rolling the president’s directives that he disagrees with.

 

According to White House sources, Trump is said to be unhappy with McMaster and has considered dispatching him to Afghanistan.

 

A possible replacement is said to be CIA director Mike Pompeo, who is regarded as more of a Trump loyalist.

 

An NSC spokesman declined to comment.

 

Foreign Policy first published the memo on Thursday and quoted sources as saying Trump read it and “gushed over it.”

 

Higgins urged in the memo that immediate action be taken to counter what he described as a campaign of subversion reflecting “cultural Marxist” narratives used by political leftists who are aligned with Islamist groups.

 

“In candidate Trump, the opposition saw a threat to the ‘politically correct’ enforcement narratives they’ve meticulously laid in over the past few decades,” Higgins said. “In President Trump, they see a latent threat to continue that effort to ruinous effect and their retaliatory response reflects this fear.”

 

During the presidential campaign, Trump was able to break through the leftist narratives and as a result the political left regards him as “an existential threat to cultural Marxist memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative.”

 

“For this cabal, Trump must be destroyed,” he said. “Far from politics as usual, this is a political warfare effort that seeks the destruction of a sitting president. Since Trump took office, the situation has intensified to crisis level proportions.”

 

The opponents also include officials within the permanent government apparatus, also called the Deep State.

 

Other opponents are supporting the Marxist subversion, including those within government, along with “globalists, bankers, Islamists, and establishment Republicans.”

 

“Globalists and lslamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed,” Higgins said.

 

The political warfare campaign seeks to exploit differences in society based on sexism, racism and xenophobia narratives. The program is implemented by mainstream media, and the academic community is the main driver promoting the imposition of cultural Marxism and derivatives of it.

 

Islamists, supporters of political Islam in the United States, also are working with leftists who they regard as having the best chance of reducing Western civilization to the benefit of Islamic supremacists. The Islamists are seeking to divide American society against itself as a way of undermining stability.

 

“This is the intended outcome of hostile information cum political warfare campaigns and today we see their effects on American society,” he said.

 

Higgins also said a complicating factor in the political warfare program is that “many close to the president have pushed him off his message when he was candidate Trump thus alienating him from his base thereby isolating him in the process.”

 

The political warfare follows the insurgency methods used by Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong. “In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power,” he said. “Political warfare operates as one of the activities of the ‘counter-state’ and is primarily focused on the resourcing and mobilization of the counter state or the exhaustion and demobilization of the targeted political movement.”

 

In the Marxist strategy and tactics, political correctness is being used to foster intolerance of political movements of the right and toleration of leftist movements.

 

The attack narratives being used are pervasive and can be seen in social media, television, and the 24-hour news cycle in all media, as well as within the foreign policy establishment. “They inform the entertainment industry from late night monologues, to situation comedies, to television series memes, to movie themes,” Higgins said. “The effort required to direct this capacity at President Trump is little more than a programming decision to do so. The cultural Marxist narrative is fully deployed, pervasive, full spectrum and ongoing.”

 

Information attacks against the president are carried out through overt publicity and covert propaganda and infiltration and subversion means.

 

The current campaign against Trump is seeking to delegitimize the president, his administration, and the vision of America he promoted as a candidate.

 

Key major opposition themes are that Trump is illegitimate, corrupt, and dishonest. Secondary political attacks include the notion that Russia hacked the election, Trump obstructed justice and is hiding Russian collusion, and that he is a “puppet” of Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

 

“Adversaries utilize these interlocking narratives as a defensive political and information warfare screen that silences critics and smears supporters of President Trump,” Higgins said.

 

“When people in the media question the behavior, actions and decisions of the Trump administration’s opponents, they are immediately said to be ‘working for the Russians’ or ‘supporting Russian propaganda.'”

 

Additionally Americans who support the president are deemed “deplorable” and “racist.”

 

“Attacks on President Trump are not just about destroying him, but also about destroying the vision of America that lead [sic] to his election,” Higgins said.

 

Higgins concluded the memo by noting that defending the president is a defense of the United States. “In the same way President Lincoln was surrounded by political opposition both inside and outside of his wire, in both overt and covert forms, so too is President Trump.

 

“Had Lincoln failed, so too would have the Republic. The administration has been maneuvered into a constant backpedal by relentless political warfare attacks structured to force him to assume a reactive posture that assures inadequate responses. The president can either drive or be driven by events; it’s time for him to drive them.”

Blog Editor: Thanks to the Free Republic, here is an easy to read version Rich Higgins’ Deep State Memo about inner-government subterfuge to take out President Donald Trump. The FP link by the above Free Beacon article has a good summary but its Memo is one of those embedded deals.

 

BTW: I have noticed in a Google search that every Mainstream Media outlet condemns the Higgins Memo as crazy Right-Wing lunacy giving credence to the firing of the Pro-Trump NSC staffers being fired. I gotta tell ya though. I question nearly every condemnation coming from the Leftist MSM. And you should too.

Here is the entire memo…

POTUS & POLITICAL WARFARE

 

Free Republic

 

BACKGROUND.  The Trump administration is suffering under withering information campaigns designed to first undermine, then de legitimize and ultimately remove the President. Possibly confusing these attacks with an elevated interplay of otherwise normal D.C. partisan infighting and adversarial media relations, the White House response to these campaigns reflects a political advocacy mindset that it is intensely reactive, severely under-inclusive and dangerously inadequate to the threat. If action is not taken to re-scope and respond to these hostile campaigns very soon, the administration risks implosion and subsequent early departure from the White House.

 

This is not politics as usual but rather political warfare at an unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a seated president through manipulation of the news cycle. It must be recognized on its own terms so that immediate action can be taken. At its core, these campaigns run on multiple lines of effort, serve as the non-violent line of effort of a wider movement, and execute political warfare agendas that reflect cultural Marxist outcomes. The campaigns operate through narratives. Because the hard left is aligned with lslamist organizations at local (ANTI FA working with Muslim Brotherhood doing business as MSA and CAIR), national (ACLU and BLM working with CAIR and MPAC) and international levels (OIC working with OSCE and the UN), recognition must [be] given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate at the narrative level as well. In candidate Trump, the opposition saw a threat to the “politically correct” enforcement narratives they’ve meticulously laid in over the past few decades. In President Trump, they see a latent threat to continue that effort to ruinous effect and their retaliatory response reflects this fear.

 

INTRODUCTION. Responding to relentless personal assaults on his character, candidate Trump identified the players and the strategy:

 

The establishment and their media enablers will control over this nation through means that are very well known. Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed.” – President Trump, Oct 2016

 

Culturally conditioned to limit responses to such attacks as yet another round in the on-going drone from diversity and multicultural malcontents, these broadsides are discounted as political correctness run amuck. However, political correctness is a weapon against reason and critical thinking. This weapon functions as the enforcement mechanism of diversity narratives that seek to implement cultural Marxism. Candidate Trump’s rhetoric in the campaign not only cut through the Marxist narrative, he did so in ways that were viscerally comprehensible to a voting bloc that then made candidate Trump the president; making that bloc self-aware in the process. President Trump is either the candidate he ran as, or he is nothing.

 

Recognizing in candidate Trump an existential threat to cultural Marxist memes that dominate the prevailing cultural narrative, those that benefit recognize the threat he poses and seek his destruction. For this cabal, Trump must be destroyed. Far from politics as usual, this is a political warfare effort that seeks the destruction of a sitting president. Since Trump took office, the situation has intensified to crisis level proportions. For those engaged in the effort, especially those from within the “deep state” or permanent government apparatus, this raises clear Title 18 (legal) concerns.

 

  • DISCUSSION.

 

The Opposition. While opposition to President Trump manifests itself through political warfare memes centered on cultural Marxist narratives, this hardly means that opposition is limited to Marxists as conventionally understood. Having become the dominant cultural meme, some benefit from it while others are captured by it; including “deep state” actors, globalists, bankers, lslamists, and establishment Republicans. Through the campaign, candidate Trump tapped into a deep vein of concern among many citizens that America is at risk and is slipping away. Globalists and lslamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed. Atomization of society must also occur at the individual level; with attacks directed against all levels of group and personal identity. Hence the sexism, racism and xenophobia memes. As a Judea-Christian culture, forced inclusion of post-modern notions of tolerance is designed to induce nihilistic contradictions that reduce all thought, all faith, all loyalties to meaninglessness. Group rights based on sex or ethnicity are a direct assault on the very idea of individual human rights and natural law around which the Constitution was framed. “Transgender acceptance” memes attack at the most basic level by denying a person the right to declare the biological fact of one’s sex. When a population has 2 + 2 = 5 imposed on it, there are many that benefit:

 

  • Mainstream Media-The principle mechanism for implementing narratives.

 

  • The Academy– Academia has served as a principle counter-state node for some time and remains a key conduit for creating future adherents to cultural Marxist narratives and their derivative worldview.

 

  • The Deep State– The successful outcome of cultural Marxism is a bureaucratic state beholden to no one, certainly not the American people. With no rule of law considerations outside those that further deep state power, the deep state truly becomes, as Hegel advocated, god bestriding the earth.

 

  • Global Corporatists & Bankers – Exploitation of populations, unfettered by national protections and notions of personal morality and piety.

 

  • Democratic Leadership– The democratic leadership has been a counter-state enabler that executes, sustains, and protects cultural Marxist programs of action and facilitates the relentless expansion of the deep state.

 

  • Republican Leadership– More afraid of being accused of being called a racist, sexist, homophobe or lslamophobe than of failing to enforce their oaths to “support and defend the Constitution,” the Republican Establishment accepts and enforces cultural Marxist memes within its own sphere of operations. In doing so, knowingly or not, it becomes an agent of that. These “conservatives” become increasingly indistinguishable from their democratic counterparts save that they misrepresent themselves to their constituents. Lacking the discernment to recognize their situation, they will work with globalists, corporatists, and the international financial interests and will likewise service the deep state. These establishment Republicans are the hard left’s designated defeat mechanism in the destruction of the old regime as well as the American ideal. 1 Because candidate Trump publicly exposed them for their duplicitous activities, they are at risk as long as Trump can turn on them and are, therefore, bitter foes. Candidate Trump’s success remains an ongoing existential threat to establishment Republicans.

  • lslamists – Islamists ally with cultural Marxist because, as far back as the 1980s, they properly assessed that the hard left has a strong chance of reducing Western civilization to its benefit. Having co-opted post-modern narratives as critical points, Islamists deploy these narratives to strategically blind and then control US decision makers. This is by design and purposeful. “By their own hands!” has been the declared strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood since 1991. This strategy seeks to divide American society against itself with the forced imposition of Islamist objectives on one half of American society by the other half. Once a society has been effectively atomized, the population will have lost its faith in the old order, detest those who reduced it, and divide along the lines of narrative adherence. This is the intended outcome of hostile information cum political warfare campaigns and today we see their effects on American society.

 

Complicating the current situation, many close to the president have pushed him off his message when he was candidate Trump thus alienating him from his base thereby isolating him in the process. When President Trump is not candidate Trump, he becomes dangerously exposed. While the base that elected candidate Trump identified with his vision, they are only Trump’s insofar as he holds to the vision that made him president.

 

Political Warfare Attacks -A Primer. As used here, “political warfare” does not concern activities associated with the American political process but rather exclusively refers to political warfare as understood by the Maoist Insurgency model2. Political warfare is one of the five components of a Maoist insurgency. Maoist methodologies employ synchronized violent and non-violent actions that focus on mobilization of individuals and groups to action. This approach envisions the direct use of non-violent operational arts and tactics as elements of combat power. In Maoist insurgencies, the formation of a counter-state is essential to seizing state power. Functioning as a hostile competing state acting within an existing state, it has an alternate infrastructure. Political warfare operates as one of the activities of the “counter-state” and is primarily focused on the resourcing and mobilization of the counter state or the exhaustion and demobilization of the targeted political movement. Political warfare methods can be implemented at strategic, operational, or tactical levels of operation.

 

Political warfare is warfare. Strategic information campaigns designed to delegitimize through disinformation arise out of non-violent lines of effort in political warfare regimes. They principally operate through narratives. Because the left is aligned with lslamist organizations at local, national and international levels, recognition should be given to the fact that they seamlessly interoperate through coordinated synchronized interactive narratives.

 

Cultural Marxism – A Primer. While the attacks on President Trump arise out of political warfare considerations based on non-kinetic lines of effort (as discussed below), they operate in a battle-space prepared, informed and conditioned by cultural Marxist drivers. In practical terms, the political warfare assault on President Trump cannot be separated from the cultural Marxist narratives that drive them. From an operational preparation of the environment perspective, President Trump is operating in a battle-space that reflects the left’s vision.

2 This discussion relies on Thomas A. Marks’ treatment of the Maoist model as discussed in Maoist People’s War in Post-Vietnam Asia (Bangkok, Thailand: White Lotus Press, 2007), 1-14. Hereafter “Thomas A. Marks, Maoist People’s War.”

 

As used in this discussion, cultural Marxism relates to programs and activities that arise out of Gramsci Marxism, Fabian Socialism and most directly from the Frankfurt School. The Frankfurt strategy deconstructs societies through attacks on culture by imposing a dialectic that forces unresolvable contradictions under the rubric of critical theory. The result is induced nihilism, a belief in everything that is actually the belief in nothing.

 

That post-modern (diversity/multiculturalism) narratives seeks to implement cultural Marxist objectives can be demonstrated by reference to founding Frankfurt School theorist Herbert Marcuse’s repurposing of the term tolerance. In a 1965 ~ Marcuse defined tolerance as intolerance; said it can be implemented through undemocratic means to stop chauvinism (xenophobia), racism, discrimination; and should be extended to the left while denied to the right:

 

  • “The realization of the objective of tolerance would call for intolerance toward prevailing policies, attitudes, opinions, and the extension of tolerance to policies, attitudes, and opinions which are outlawed or suppressed.”

 

  • “Surely, no government can be expected to foster its own subversion, but in a democracy such a right is vested in the people (i.e. in the majority of the people). This means that the ways should not be blocked on which a subversive majority could develop, and if they are blocked by organized repression and indoctrination, their reopening may require apparently undemocratic means. They would include the withdrawal of toleration of speech and assembly from groups and movements which promote aggressive policies, armament, chauvinism, discrimination on the grounds of race and religion, or which oppose the extension of public services, social security, medical care, etc.” (8-9)

 

  • “Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left. As to the scope of this tolerance and intolerance: … it would extend to the stage of action as well as of discussion and propaganda, of deed as well as of word.” (12)

 

It is through such post-modern constructs that interoperable narratives are established among various left-wing groups as well as between them and Islamist groups at all levels. For example, from the 2001 Conference of Foreign Ministers at Bamako, Mali, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) declared its commitment to fight racism and xenophobia and then declared lslamophobia a “contemporary form of racism”:

 

  • In this context, the World Conference urges all states … take all necessary measures to combat hatred, discrimination, intolerance and acts of violence, intimidation and coercion motivated by racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance particularly against Islam

 

  • Racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance which display an increasing trend, in their most subtle and contemporary forms, constitute a violation of human rights. 3. Contemporary forms of racism are based on discrimination and disparagement on a cultural, rather than biological basis. In this content, the increasing trend of lslamophobia, as a distinct form of xenophobia in non-Muslim societies is very alarming.

 

That the OIC made these claims as part of its planned inputs to the United Nation’s “Third World Conference against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance” further demonstrates the coordinated and interoperable nature of these narratives at international levels in international forums.

 

As cultural Marxist narratives intensify, they are to be further operationalized in the form of hate speech narratives. Hate speech narratives are non-random, coordinated, and fully interoperable escalations of cultural Marxist memes. Key international players include the European Union, the UN, and the OSCE, the OIC and the International Muslim Brotherhood. Hate speech memes are structured, coordinated, and implemented through these same international forums. They involve close coordination with media and social media and include the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) narratives. David Shipler’s book Freedom of Speech provides a road map for how hate speech narratives are to be structured, deployed and enforced.

 

Battlespace. These attack narratives are pervasive, full spectrum and institutionalized at all levels. They operate in social media, television, the 24-hour news cycle in all media, and are entrenched at the upper levels of the bureaucracies and within the foreign policy establishment. They inform the entertainment industry from late night monologues, to situation comedies, to television series memes, to movie themes. The effort required to direct this capacity at President Trump is little more than a programming decision to do so. The cultural Marxist narrative is fully deployed, pervasive, full spectrum and ongoing. Regarding the president, attacks have become a relentless 24/7 effort.

 

While there is certainly a Marxist agenda and even lslamist motivations that must be seriously addressed in their own right, these motivations alone seem inadequate to explain the scope and magnitude of the effort directed against the president. The economic drivers behind the Marxist and Islamist ideologues are enormously influential and seek to leverage these ideological movements for their own self interests. While beyond the actual scope of this document, the benefactors of these political movements include; Urban Real Estate who depend greatly on immigrant tenants, International Banking who seeks to maintain US debtor status so as to control the application of American power, and elements of the business sector that depend upon immigrant labor or government infrastructure. The overall objective of these economic forces is the forced urbanization of the populace, thereby necessitating a larger, more powerful government. In summary, this is a form of population control by certain business cartels in league with cultural Marxists/corporatists/lslamists who will leverage Islamic terrorism threats to justify the creation of a police state.

 

Adversary Campaign Plan. Political Warfare has been described as “propaganda in battledress.”The effort directed at President Trump is executed along one overt, as well as two covert, lines of effort:

 

  • The overt line of effort is PUBLICITY. Publicity is the straightforward projection of a case that builds a picture in the audience’s mind designed to garner support. It is facts without context and information the adversary wants the audience to possess that creates an impression and sets conditions. It seeks to establish good will and receptiveness to additional inputs.

 

  • There are two covert lines of effort: PROPOGANDAand INFILTRATION/SUBVERSION.

 

o Propaganda is the deliberate direction, even manipulation, of information to secure a definite outcome. It is an attempt to direct the thinking of the recipient, without his conscious collaboration, into predetermined channels that are established in the Publicity line of effort. It is the unwitting conditioning of the recipient by devious methods with an ulterior motive that seeks to move them incrementally over time into greater belief and acceptance of message transmitted in the Publicity line of effort.

 

o Infiltration and subversion operate internal to the targeted organization in order to inform, target, coordinate, and amplify the effects of the publicity and propaganda. Both operate to gather intelligence, obstruct legitimate courses of action, provide inside information, and leak sensitive information that undermines the leadership and suppresses the morale of friendly elements.

o Infiltration of political and social groups within a target state is done for the purpose of extending counterstate influence and control. The endgame is concealed and may involve illicit activities.

o Subversion undermines or detaches the loyalties of significant political and social groups within the target state and transfers political and/or ideological loyalties to the counter-state. As the counter-state forms, a counter-elite of influential individual and key leaders within the target state will later facilitate the legitimacy and permanency of the new regime.

 

The Meta Narrative. Meta narratives seeks to delegitimize President Trump, his administration, and the vision of America he projected as a candidate. With cultural Marxist memes serving as the backdrop, President Trump is to be relentlessly characterized as unfit through the use of supporting narratives acting to move unwitting populations to belief in the meta narrative. Hence:

 

  • “President Trump is illegitimate”

 

  • “President Trump is corrupt”

 

  • “President Trump is dishonest”

 

Note that the twitter accounts and mainstream media personalities pushing this narrative have seen their audience numbers rise greatly in the past 6 months. This is a direct result of the supporting and backdrop narratives channeling individuals to this meta-narrative.

 

Supporting Narratives. Meta-narratives are supported by an ongoing series supporting-narratives that can be swapped out as circumstances warrant. It is important to recognize that these stories do not have to be true, valid or accurate to serve their purpose. Over time, deserved or not, the cumulative effect of these supporting narratives will result in a Trump fatigue. From a political warfare perspective, President Trump’s inability to meet this challenge will cast him as a weak failed leader. The current list of supporting narratives include:

 

  • “Russia hacked the election”       – illegitimate

 

  • “Obstruction of Justice”                – corrupt

 

  • “Hiding Collusion”                            – dishonest

 

  • “Putin Puppet”                                 – treasonous

 

Backdrop Narratives. The backdrop to the meta and supporting narratives are cultural Marxist memes designed to sustain a general sense of loathing of President Trump and the America that elected him.

 

Hence:

 

  • “[meta] President Trump is illegitimate, [supporting] he was elected because of Russian hacking, [backdrop] and besides, he a racist, sexist xenophobe.”

 

Adversaries utilize these interlocking narratives as a defensive political and information warfare screen that silences critics and smears supporters of President Trump. When people in the media question the behavior, actions and decisions of the Trump Administration’s opponents, they are immediately said to be “working for the Russians” or “supporting Russian propaganda.” Individual Americans who support the President are deemed “deplorable” and “racist.”

 

End State. Attacks on President Trump are not just about destroying him, but also about destroying the vision of America that lead to his election. Those individuals and groups seeking the destruction of President Trump actually seek to suffocate the vision of America that made him president. Hence, the end state is not just a delegitimized, destabilized, immobilized and possibly destroyed presidency; but also a demoralized movement composed of a large enough bloc to elect a president that subsequently become self-aware of its own disenfranchisement.

 

CONCLUSION.

 

The recent turn of events give rise to the observation that the defense of President Trump is the defense of America. In the same way President Lincoln was surrounded by political opposition both inside and outside of his wire, in both overt and covert forms, so too is President Trump. Had Lincoln failed, so too would have the Republic. The administration has been maneuvered into a constant backpedal by relentless political warfare attacks structured to force him to assume a reactive posture that assures inadequate responses. The president can either drive or be driven by events; it’s time for him to drive them.
