The Futility of an Armed Revolt: There Will Be No Second American Revolution

What we are now experiencing is a civil war, devised and instigated in part by the U.S. government. The outcome for this particular conflict is already foregone: the police state wins. The objective: compliance and control. The strategy: destabilize the economy through endless wars, escalate racial tensions, polarize the populace, heighten tensions through a show of force, intensify the use of violence, and then, when all hell breaks loose, clamp down on the nation for the good of the people and the security of the nation.

    This was well-done. Thank you.

  2. Not now Bernard…

  3. victor friese says:

    I still need to watch this. But this country will sink into a failed state status. The citizenry will grow ever more distrustful and discontent, specially if the welfare (which is really corporate welfare as it is cheaper to put Americans on the dole than to pay them for work while slaves, prisoners and soon robots the like do the work) is cut off. The state will crakk down, but it will be like cracking down on a ghetto. People will just get to where they won’t cooperate.

    I think these people are intentfully destroying this country. Maybe foreign agents have taken over. Both Trump and Clinton (Hillay sold a U.S. Uranium mine to Russia) have ties to Russia… and of course the supranational “elite”.

  4. victor friese says:

    I wanted to comment on the Who.What.Why article “The FBI’s Increasingly Odd Silence on Boston Bombing” y’all linked to. There was no place to do so…

    Tsarnev was carrying a small white backpack. Craft International Mercenaries at the Boston bombing were carrying the same large black backpacks with white squares at the top as was found at the bomb site. Obviously Craft International did the Boston bombing. So why this bloated pointless article? It is only telling of how they will try to spin attention from this little set of facts that tells pretty much all you need to know about the Boston bombing. You can add the fact that Tsarnaevs Uncle was living for free in a house owned by CIA agent Graham Fuller… and IIRC married Fuller’s daughter.

  5. victor friese says:

    Um, slavery isn’t peaceful or not dangerous. You just trade minor devils for greater devils. People need to become more feral and start thinking about how to dominate the government and about how the government and power classes dominate the people. Libertarianism won’t get us out of this, nor will anarchy as they both just hand the power to whoever is vile enough to obtain it. Communism and socialism will not work either, nor will any rigid system where the system itself is idolized. People must learn to think like the power class. They must learn to dominate the power class as the power class currently dominates the people. Which is any way they can. Dominism is the only way out of this.

    • Andreas Hedqvist says:

      I beg to differ. You stated that ‘dominism (sic: domination) is the only way out of this’ and I think that is precisely what they are banking on and just like the article points out, this will not work. What needs to happen is that enough people say stop this insanity and get back to something that works – an honest and transparent government by the people for the people. We have been for a very long time indoctrinated to believe we have to hand over power to a government to keep us safe. This is completely wrong. Governments around the world all grab more power using fear tactics because in reality they fear their own people. We need a paradigm shift and it can start only once enough people wake up and understand the truth. You pointed out in your previous comment about the false flag in Boston and this is only one of a long list of events orchestrated to scare the public into accepting more violence, surveillance and bullying by government agencies. Once these tactics and methods get exposed it is game over for the tyrants. One of the main reasons why the US has embarked down this dark path is the fact that its abuse of its unique monetary position is nearing the end of the road now. The US has lived for free off of the rest of the world for a very long time and that is about to change. The US is for all intents and purposed bankrupt and has no way of salvaging its economic situation and the only way the power structure knows how to deal with this is through war and violence. We need paradigm shifts on many fronts and they will come, the big question is how they will manifest themselves.

      • victor friese says:

        Andreas, I don’t think you understand what I was saying. Your point a out needing to realise is a key part of dominism. Throwing off the naivety and seeing things like they are is a key part. If society thought in terms of what they need to secure their own freedom and power, the alliances they need to bud, tactics to use etc.., in effect waging and endless war, psychological and hopefully not needing to be physical, against the power centers and the power class themselves, this mess would never have happened. Obedience and fitting in and not saying anything offensive and not stepping out of line… these actions and the mindset that supports such thinking are pure evil, and is in itself a form of psychological warfare against the people and anything good.

        People must start thinking in brutal terms toward the powerfull, perhaps a Sun Tzu style mindset. That is the only way they can love and protect the rest.

        We are dealing with a system where EVERY institution is a failure. These power parasites have perveted and destroyed every system we have… the government, regulatory agencies, the military, medicine, agriculture, belief systems, education, the internet, the courts, law enforcement, technology of all types, the environment, the financial system, consumer products (poor quality control and design), transportation… literally everything they touch becomes perfect at screwing people out of their money and their health amd everything else, but not so good at producing a bright future. Corbetts new vid on chemo therapy should be an example.

        The only way for the people to dominate the powerful, is to do what is necessary to ensure the freedom of people. And the main revolution thusly is a revolution of the mind, a revolution of perception, from a naive and childish slave mentality, to a decent and good critical mentality.

        • Andreas Hedqvist says:

          Thanks for the clarification. I agree with you on all points except the remedy you recommend, which I interpret is to dominate. It is frustrating for those of us who can see how deceived and tricked the majority of people are today. This goes for many areas like allopathic medicine and obvious corruption of big pharmaceuticals and regulators or niches of the financial industry in cahoots with weather manipulation programs designed to get people off valuable land and monopolize water and other resources.

          What I am trying to say is that I don’t think we can really change this corrupt system by using force and confrontation. That is the language of this current power structure. What needs to happen is that an overwhelming majority of people learn the truth and see the deception and lies, that’s when this change can happen very quickly. It should be clear to everyone that we don’t want police in tanks and tactical gear everywhere, we want police that we can talk to on the street. We don’t want electronic voting machines, fluoridated water, GMO foods, 24-7 surveillance, mandatory vaccination and non constitutional (aka false) laws like the Patriot Act, NDAAs etc. It’s not rocket science but rather common sense.

          • victor friese says:

            Dominism isn’t about using force. It is about denying the use of force against you and other plebs. It is about creating a system where the powerful cannot push around and lie to the weak. It is about surveilling all the powerful 24/7 365 and having effective punishhments, higher standards and making sure they get no reward from their power (requiring all politicians be impoverished for life for example). It is about making positions of power only attractive to those with good intentions instead of just greedy intentions. It is about dominating your own lives by dominating the power centers. You either control them, or they control you. That is just the way it is.

          • Andreas Hedqvist says:

            Re: victor

            Ok, I didn’t know that definition. It sounds perfect if it could be implemented, would solve a lot. For most sane people it is clear that powerful positions and institutions attract the wrong people and that’s why we have so many psychopaths and sociopaths calling the shots.

  6. Andreas Hedqvist says:

    I wonder more and more what Trump is doing. His main slogan to ‘drain the swamp’ seems completely lacking from my vantage point. Was he for real? I’m starting to doubt whether he is capable or even willing to do what he said. All the Zionists and wall street types he has surrounded himself with point in the opposite direction. The fascist tyranny that the United States is turning into just keeps on marching and the people seem incapable of realizing what is going on. It’s quite a feat when you think about it: the most free and liberal super power on the planet is being overtaken by stealth into a totalitarian police state. I just hope the economy implodes before the architects behind this evil plot get to finish it.

    • victor friese says:

      Trump is just a fake revolution like Obama was. Both him and Clinton hang out on Epsteins pedo island. Nuff said.

      • ruth slater says:

        Victor I havent seen any truth or documents proving your statement that Trump is a pedophile So no it isnt “nuff said “. I have seen a lot of evidence to the fact that under Trump these pedophile rings are bring brought to the for front and arrested.

  7. Russell Linz says:

    Watching Mr. Whiteheads past videos and his chastisement of “when good men do nothing” and encouragement of taking action to to retain our liberty,I find the title of this video puzzling. Now apparently our enslavement is a “Fate Accompli” and resistance futile. I suppose now Mr. Whitehead will step down from his position of watchman on the wall and retire to whatever sanctuary he can find to wait out the coming Apocalypse .

  8. I don’t know how many police there are in the US, but I’m guessing it’s way short of 325 million. Being armed to the teeth will only get you so far if 100 000 citizens get out into the streets, or even 10 000. Imagine if 1 million walked to say ‘we choose liberty over safety’ in every capital city.

    Just because someone thinks they can herd 7 billion people doesn’t mean they will succeed. If you’re going to keep the heat up, those frogs will come to the boil and they will start jumping and the pathetic tiny empire will go the way of all others.

    As always, it comes down to individual courage – if we all behave in a compassionate and decent way, there is nothing to manipulate.

    We all have to end our toxic love affair with materialism and maybe then we’ll have time to engage our minds and hearts.

    • Andreas Hedqvist says:

      Well said, however, to move beyond simple materialism is a luxury reserved for those who have their needs met. This is of course why our monetary system looks the way it does – it is clear to those in power and control that when people reach a certain material standard they can no longer be controlled by intimidation and fear. That’s really the true underlying power of money today. A system built on fear and oppression will inevitably collapse in on itself and we all know that. I can’t help but wonder if this is planned because the current trajectory is so deranged and insane that unless engineered it almost seems prophetic.

  9. Ludovico Doebbeling says:

    I would like to dubb this video into Spanish, so the Spanish speaking community can understand it. I have done some dubbings before, please check them out in my youtube channel . The last dubbing I did a couple of days ago is this video: I do not monetize my videos, I am only trying to help wake people up to what is going on. If that is okay with you, please let me download a copy of the video, so I can work on it. I am NOT going to upload it in English, only in Spanish.

  10. Steve Smith says:

    You must not have listened to the video. That’s not at all what John was saying.

  11. Eugene Guilfoyle says:

    Excellent insight John

  12. William Wanklyn says:

    So kicked off again. Sometimes I wonder.
    This was a good piece. I ask myself how best to bring together those who are now at each others throats. Families and friends on different sides of the divide. My sister would not even consider watching a piece like this, cannot believe such a situation is in the realms of possibility. Its all Trump’s fault. Its all Russia’s fault. I have been banging away at her about how things are not right for years and years to no effect.

  13. stan wasserman says:

    Thank you.

  14. The ONLY way out of this surreal state-of-affairs we are facing is a revolution that takes place within the American mind. There will be no political party, leader (no not Bernie Sanders either) or systemic remedy. Nor any kind of revolution by brute force or violence of any kind — any attempt on this front will only rapidly aid the corrupt forces we are facing implement their police state agenda much more rapidly…

    Americans need to evolve their thinking in these key ways:
    1st: See and understand how corruption has reached surreal, previously utterly unthinkable, levels and is now omnipresent — all the while getting worse and worse all the time in slow motion so we don’t notice that much until its too late…
    2nd: See that there is no short-tern or long-term future for them, their children, their family, their faith, their community, their nation nor their world if what is going on continues… So the motivation to “carve out a stake” so-to-speak within our utterly corrupt society looses much of its draw for all but only the very-short-term future.
    3rd: Develop a sense of spirituality or put another way a sense of “being”. Oliver Stone in a recent speech to journalists said it well when speaking about what it takes to become a truth-telling journalist, he said “You need to find your spiritual selves.” This applies to everyone and by spiritual I don’t mean religion or complex philosophy. I mean just the simple recognition that we are fundamentally energetic beings in human form but fundamentally spirit. That ourselves, families, friends and everything we see and interact with comes from one energy, one spirit one ultimate intelligence that transcends the world of form that we know. I know this may sound like esoteric mumbo-jumbo but this really is the ultimate key. An organization called “One Solution Global” has taken up a critical role in bringing this non-religious, simple and very accessible modality of understanding the mind that I believe is where the REAL revolution will happen.
