Flynn: Passionate 2% Can Control Other 98%

2020 June 30
by bc3b

There was a time when flag officers were staunch patriots – men like Pershing, Patton, MacArthur, Eisenhower and Halsey.

That has changed. The majority of today’s generals and admirals are primarily political puppets who want to be loved by deep state and the media.

Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Michael Mullen never saw a day of combat. Former Army Chief of Staff George Casey was worried more about a negative impact on diversity rather than the 14 people who were murdered and the 40+ wounded at the Ft. Hood massacre. Even generals we once respected, like David Petraeus and James Mattis, turned out to be swamp creatures far more interested in their future and being loved by the right people than what’s best for the country.

A sharp contrast is General Michael Flynn. Flynn loves his country and wanted to serve it in other ways following a distinguished military career. He paid dearly – entrapped by the FBI and a kangaroo court, affirmative action judge.

Now General Flynn speaks out on the danger from within that we are facing:

I was once told if we’re not careful, 2 percent of the passionate will control 98 percent of the indifferent 100 percent of the time.

The more I’ve thought about this phrase, the more I believe it. There is now a small group of passionate people working hard to destroy our American way of life. Treason and treachery are rampant and our rule of law and those law enforcement professionals who uphold our laws are under the gun more than at any time in our nation’s history. These passionate 2 percent appear to be winning.

Despite there being countless good people trying to come to grips with everything else on their plates, our silent majority (the indifferent) can no longer be silent.

If the United States wants to survive the onslaught of socialism, if we are to continue to enjoy self-government and the liberty of our hard-fought freedoms, we have to understand there are two opposing forces: One is the “children of light” and the other is the “children of darkness.”

As I recently wrote, the art and exercise of self-governance require active participation by every American. I wasn’t kidding! And voting is only part of that active participation. Time and again, the silent majority have been overwhelmed by the “audacity and resolve” of small, well-organized, passionate groups. It’s now time for us, the silent majority (the indifferent), to demonstrate both.

The trials of our current times, like warfare, are immense and consequences severe and these seem inconquerable.

As a policewoman from Virginia told me, “People don’t feel safe in their homes and our police force is so demoralized we cannot function as we should. In my 23 years with my department, I have never seen morale so low.”

Another woman from Mississippi told me that we need our leaders to “drop a forceful hammer. People are losing patience. It simply must be stopped! Laws MUST be enforced … no one is above the law.”

Don’t fret. Through smart, positive actions of resolute citizen-patriots, we can prevail. Always keep in mind that our enemy (these dark forces) invariably have difficulties of which we are ignorant.

For most Americans, these forces appear to be strong. I sense they are desperate. I also sense that only a slight push on our part is all that is required to defeat these forces. How should that push come?

Prayers help and prayers matter, but action is also a remedy. Our law enforcement professionals, from the dispatcher to the detective and from the cop to the commissioner, are a line of defense against the corrupt and the criminal. It is how we remain (for now) in a state of relatively peaceful existence.

We must support them with all our being. They are not the enemy; they bring light to the darkness of night through their bravery and determination to do their jobs without fanfare and with tremendous sacrifice.

    It’s a small percentage (I’m not sure if it’s 2%), but CNN and the rest of the media is doing its best to make it look far larger and portraying it in the most positive light possible. The ?% is backed by George Soros’ money and the powerful media and elitist class. Antifa terrorizes those who speak out and anyone who disagrees with Black Lives Matter is branded a racist although Black Lives Matter seems to only have a problem with a fraction of 1% of blacks killed by police. They don’t seem to have a problem with the 93% of blacks killed by other blacks, including innocent children. And no one – other than possibly Tucker Carlson – has the courage to face them.

    He is correct. There’s more though. The “2 percent of the passionate” have another 10% who will help them for personal profit and power, and another 30% who have been mentally and morally co-opted into going along with the 2%.

    Then at the other end are the “indifferent”…about 30% (just like during the Revolutionary War)

    That leaves those of us squeezed between the mobs controlled by the 2%, and the “indifferent” people who believe this will “all just go away”. Many of our loved ones simply refuse to talk about what is happening…they believe if they don’t discuss it then it simply isn’t happening.

    I don’t have a solution, simply a desire to quietly prepare for what I KNOW is looming, and provide some hope for my family to survive. 11 months now.

    That’s a major difference from the 1960s and 1970s – the US public education system and what is being taught in schools took a sharp left turn around 1970. The people educated since 1970 is likely a majority today.

    For Californians, Election Integrity Project suggests:
    Santa Clarita, Calif. – Because of AB 860, ALL California voters will be sent a mail-in ballot. ALL voters.

    This raises many concerns, among them the number of ballots that went missing in the March primary. Hundreds of thousands!

    To be sure this does not happen to you for the November election, go TODAY to to register to receive automatic email, SMS (text), and/or voice call notifications about your ballot. I just did, and it takes about 20 seconds.

    When election time comes, you will be notified:
    when your ballot is put into the mail by your elections office (or vendor)
    must be mailed between October 5 and October 9
    postal service’s projected date of delivery
    if it doesn’t arrive as projected, you can call to have it cancelled and replaced to foil any attempts to vote fraudulently in your name
    when your ballot has been received by the elections office
    when your ballot has been counted or rejected
    if rejected: why, and steps you can take
    reminder if your ballot is not received by certain date

    49 of the 58 counties are offering this service.

    Looking at the steps, why not:

    * Pull registration card out of the file cabinet.
    * Go and vote in person.

    In person voting is obvi more secure.
    There is a “chain of custody”. The office of the Sec’ty of State for the state prints up the ballots. Then they’re delivered to the precinct officers. Give one to the voter, the ballot is marked, return to the precinct officials and put in a locked box.
    From the precinct to the voting counting office, with a seal on the ballot box.

    Compare to the vote by mail and there are vast stretches of time where the ballot is not in anyone’s direct control plus people can stuff most anything into the public ballot boxes they set up at each city hall, library, community college, etc. to receive completed ballots.

    Quite the comparison:
    Apparently Antifa and/or BLM is calling for a flag burning party at Gettysburg Nat’l Cemetery.

    On the one hand: white boys who gave up their lives to free black slaves they’d never met, for no reward other than confirmation of their Christian heritage of love for their brothers and sisters regardless of color.

    On the other hand: celebration of a career criminal, obese, drug-addled, passing counterfeit money, who once pointed his gun at the belly of a pregnant woman while robbing her.

    Hey. they’re all God’s critters but I know which I esteem more highly.

    For a lot of this Confederate soldier hate: guess what? After a war, the veterans on both sides tend to agree that they don’t want to fight again. Giving respect to the losing side, binding the wounds, that’s the policy you choose if you don’t want the losing side to nurse their anger for generations and you don’t want to take the chance of having the flames rise again.

    As a Northern boy, my blood is purely white, afaik. And no slave owners in the past generations. But a lot (most? nearly all?) of the protesting black Americans definitely have a measure of white Confederate bloodline mixed in with their African roots. So should they pay reparations, or should I?

    From my Mom’s side of the family, a story all too many families on both sides were fated to live through.

    Thank you, Jim Nor, for your post.

    The Civil War ended with the surrender of Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, and from that moment on, men of good will did all they could to put differences aside and become one country. Robert E. Lee spent the last years of his life healing the nation’s wounds and establishing institutions for the benefit of all Americans. General Grant worked tirelessly to lift up the lives of the freed slaves.

    My ancestor fell at Gettysburg. My great grandfather, was a farmer in eastern North Carolina. In February 1862, he answered the call to arms joining the NC 52nd Regiment. Union troops occupied the coastal town of Elizabeth City, and the farms and towns at the upper end of the Albemarle Sound felt threatened. He trained at Fort Mangum in Raleigh, then formed up to provide defenses around Richmond. Eventually, the 52nd was assigned to General Pettigrew’s brigade. In May 1863, Pettigrew’s men joined the Army of Northern Virginia and crossed the Potomac on June 24 marching toward Gettysburg.

    Pettigrew’s brigade first engaged the Union troops at Seminary Ridge, broke their lines, then were held in reserve on the second day of fighting. The third day, they joined General Pickett’s charge against the Union lines. My ancestor was there, at The Angle, the high water mark of the Confederate forces in the North, and received mortal wounds to his shoulder and abdomen. He died 24 days later in a Union field hospital. His remains were returned to Richmond by citizens of Gettysburg for burial. His widow received his veterans pension by Act of Congress in 1901.

    It is well to remember that all Confederate veterans were recognized officially by the Congress of the United States. US Public law 85-425 Section 410 reads:

    “Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
    United States of America in Congress assembled,

    That the Veterans’ Benefits Act of 1957 (Public Law 85-56) is amended:

    “(e) For the purpose of this section, and section 433, the term
    ‘veteran’ includes a person who served in the military or naval forces
    of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, and the
    term ‘active, military or naval service’ includes active service in such
    forces.” “

    Using this Act as a marker, it took almost 100 years to heal our nation from this conflict. Why must we now, 63 years later on, tear these wounds apart?

    There is a lot of the American experience yet to be learned.

    I should have posted this on “Memorial Day”, but perhaps it is just as well that I didn’t. Because I feel it is more important to post it now…as many in this country are demanding we FORGET our past. Oh, those same people won’t mind a 3-day weekend around the end of May, but will probably want to rename it: “America Sucks Day”, or some such, so long as they still get the day off (if they have even ever worked, that is).

    First of all Memorial Day should only fall on a Monday when it happens to, and not always on the “last Monday in May”, as designated by Congress in 1971. The meaning of the day is too important. Here is that meaning.

    In March of 1866 a woman named Mary Anne Williams, of Columbus, Georgia, sent an open letter to newspapers, saying that women in her area had been cleaning and decorating the graves of “our gallant confederate dead,” but that they thought “it is an unfinished work unless a day be set apart annually for its especial attention.” The letter was picked up across the South, and a day on April was chosen for this.

    In July of 1866, General John A. Logan, head of the fraternal group the Grand Army of the Republic, read reports that in towns across the South, women were decorating the graves of dead Confederates…he was furious. Shortly thereafter he made a speech in which he angrily decried that “traitors in the South have their gatherings, day after day, to strew garlands of flowers upon the graves of Rebel soldiers.”

    On May 5, 1868, Logan proposed a nationwide public holiday to decorate the graves of those who died in the Civil War (but he still only wanted Union graves recognized), and thus “Decoration Day” was created, and later changed to “Memorial Day”.

    Later in 1868 President Andrew Johnson officially pardoned all Confederate soldiers, and in 1898 President William McKinley proposed further recognition of Confederate soldiers, including allowing them to apply for military pensions if they could prove they served honorably. Various Acts of Congress throughout the 1900s granted recognition and protection of Confederate graves, and in 1958 full veteran status was posthumously granted to all Confederate soldiers.
    Those who claim Confederate graves are NOT protected are either misled or lying. They are the graves of VETERANS, and all such graves are protected.

    The hymn ‘Kneel Where Our Loves Are Sleeping’ was written in 1867, and though dedicated to “The Ladies of the South who are decorating the graves of the Confederate Dead”, it speaks for all brave men & women who have died for America. This is the opening verse:
    ==> “Kneel where our loves are sleeping, Dear ones days gone by, Here we bow in holy reverence, Our bosoms heave the heartfelt sigh. They fell like brave men, true as steel, And pour’d their blood like rain, We feel we owe them all we have, And can but weep and kneel again.”

    The “useful idiots” gleefully destroying and defacing monuments across this country have NO idea (and NO concern) for the history of our country…or our country itself. The ongoing Cultural Revolution (as Mao called it) seeks to tear down America…period.

    Our history IS conflicted, but remembering it IS essential.

    More about Flynn.
    Americans were astonished two months ago after newly unsealed internal FBI notes taken by the agency’s former assistant director of counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, showed top bureau officials discussing strategy ahead of their January 24, 2017 interview of General Michael Flynn. FBI officials were debating the best way they could set him up in a perjury trap.

    Several days later, sources familiar with the Durham investigation told Fox News that John Durham had reviewed the Flynn documents and was disturbed that no whistleblowers came forward early on.

    I am not surprised at ALL. If you are going to conduct a conspiracy your first order of business is to pick the right people for the job. The second is to develop thin lines of communication so that compromise in one cell does not endanger other cells. The most disturbing angle for me is not that there were no whistleblowers but that the Pressitutes were so willing to go along with the charade. A republic cannot stand long if the guardians, and that is what the Founders intended from the Press, are not fulfilling their function. THIS is what will ultimately be the demise of the USA.

    Thanks for that history, and the particular context it provides to the stories by myself and JimNorCal.

    My ancestor, as I recounted, suffered two mini ball wounds in the fighting, and was taken prisoner by Union forces. He was placed in a Union field hospital at Swartz Farm where he died 24 days later. He was buried in a marked grave near there. As the movement grew to “ bring the boys home”, the bodies of the Confederate dead were exhumed in an orderly process. My great grandfather was in the first shipment back to Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond.

    The citizens of Gettysburg kept very good records and processed those dead in a dignified manner. Once they arrived in Richmond, they were buried in a mass grave, but families who could validate the travels of their ancestor were allowed a marker.

    I worry about the destruction going on now by people who have no knowledge of the history of our nation. Civil War battlefields and cemeteries are important markers for all Americans. We grew as a nation to achieve greatness and the Civil War was part of that process.

    Mullet, I have only one relative who fought for the South…for Texas actually. My ggGrandfather was in the Texas infantry and fought for Texas (I have the actual unit designation and all records of his service). In 1901 he was awarded a tiny pension by the U.S. War Department based on the affidavits written by fellow soldiers and other friends attesting to his honorable service. All my other ancestors fought for the North, but I proud of them all.

    I haven’t joined Oathkeepers yet…but being a former Marine, I probably should.

    Here is how they describe themselves:
    ==> “Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial. See the Oath Keepers Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey for details.”

    But, no surprise, those is how Wikipedia describes them:

    ==> “Oath Keepers is an anti-government American far-right organization associated with the militia movement. The group describes itself as a non-partisan association of current and former military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath that all military and police take in order to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic”. It encourages members – some of whom are current and former U.S. military and law enforcement officers – not to obey orders which they believe would violate the United States Constitution.”

    (A) don’t believe a damn word Wikipedia says unless you verify it elsewhere and (B) understand that the Left’s problem with Oathkeepers is that they encourage Americans to “not obey orders which they believe would violate the United States Constitution.”

    A long though excellent article, which concludes, correctly:

    ==> It is naïve not to connect the dots between the insurrection and assaults on law enforcement and the radical agenda being advanced by the Democrats in the 2020 election. Joe Biden has capitulated and allowed the socialist wing of the party to coopt the party platform. The Democrats will attack everything hard-working Americans hold dear. Once again, I implore readers not to focus on the myriad faults exhibited by our current president. He is flawed; very flawed. But the imminent, (and very real) threat of a socialist takeover looms large. As I said, our wonderful, magnificent experiment in freedom and opportunity lies in bed on a respirator. If more Americans don’t wake up, the Democrats will gladly pull the plug.

    Meijer is one of my “go to” stores. For those not familiar, Meijer is similar to Walmart (with more emphasis on groceries and less on other stuff). It operates in the Great Lakes region. It is far cleaner than Walmart (so are most dumps) and lacks the colorful folks, known as “Walmart People.” Meijer is traditional in that does things to help communities in which its stores are based and avoids politics. Since I always use debit or credit cards, this won’t affect me.

    Apparently this is self-checkout only. Cash can still be used with cashier check out. That’s why they call them cashiers.

    Interestingly, Frederick Meijer, the chain’s founder, married one of his cashiers. Likely she was hot.

    Here is the miscalculation the Dims are making in my estimation. The hard leftists are about 1% of the population. The hard core of that group is only 1% again. Yet that 1% of 1% is the most vocal. They dominate Twitter and other social media. Being the squeaky wheel the Dims are catering to them thinking that is the majority of the Left and some independents.

    Then in the hinterlands, the body politics watch this same group of people torching and destroying things. I hope that they are recognizing that this is not the world they want to live in. The couple that came out with guns in St. Louis are an example. They are Dims themselves. But right about now they have to be thinking given the chance they could lose everything they built up.
