    How much do you want to bet that Croatia will be the first nation to recognize and send troops to Costal Elite-land (formerly the U.S.A.)?

    Not too soon for those kind of jokes I hope.

    When one is underdog, in asymmetric warfare, one looks for every means, that can provide an upper hand.

    When I entered into the forest, by means of psychedelic mushrooms, I challenged myself into single combat.

    I was not aware, at the time, that I had entered Plato’s Cave, and today I recognize, how the Scythians did so.

    Secession is a quantum leap.


  3. Laura on July 17, 2021 at 7:51 pm

    As for secession, the poll response reflects the strongly opposed viewpoints existing in the USA and probably elsewhere. If people are really worked up, then they should vote with their feet. and some are, today I met two open minded New Yorkers enjoying the Florida beach.
    It is likely that there will be a few supreme court cases addressing the actions of states refusing to implement a federal dictate or some other permutation on federalism.
    With respect to the extreme polarity of views, you can judge a person’s intelligence on how well a person can mentally process an opposing view with wit, logic and kindness. it is sad to encounter people whose minds appear to be on lock down. so I think people will to continue to be attracted to like minded folks in general.

      SUCCESSION is, when a monarch succeeds another monarch, as successor, whereas SECESSION is to call the bluff, and secede, in withdrawal, from the poker game.

      Successful secession would be, for the Scythian tribes to cross a river, and ambush the pursuing Assyrian soldiers, so they float down the river, as darted corpses.

      An Assyrian general would not risk his head, by taking a costly river crossing, and would withdraw, to await orders. Thus the Scythians would have escaped up north.

      Hypothetically, such an escape plan would have been prepared for years, awaiting the right moment, when Assyria was facing domestic turmoil.

      One can hypothesize, that the Scythian martial art development was an integral part of the Scythian secession, as asymmetrical warfare, where every arrow counts.

      A super soldier must be physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually prepared, to fight autonomously. Only then, could an imperial hierarchy have been defeated.

  4. Gabe on July 17, 2021 at 3:22 pm

    Why pursue succession why one could start an informal, traditionalist version of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation in his novel series known as The Foundation Trilogy?
    Think about it we could be self sufficient as the Amish. But, without all the legalism and hyper strictness. Nothing against the Amish though. Moral strictness can be a good thing.

      It has already begun in rural America.

      Decentralization tech projects, Resilient Community movements, parallel currency systems, parallel food production and delivery systems, parallel energy and telecom micro-grids.

      Only a few missing components, such as a decentralized reputation system to formalize the high-trust rule of law culture. Gamify contributions to the commons. Judge honestly, and welcome judgement from others. Ensure reciprocity is followed in word and deed.

      Hold people to a high standard, in order to gain admission to this parallel society.

      I know many people dislike the thought of any type of reputation-tracking but it’s like fire. It exists now, it’ll be used – by us or on us.

      I think it would be no bad thing, to have ones behavior recorded in a shared In-group ledger. Many Lodges did similar with their members, each holding the others to account.

        When Odin went traveling, he left his brothers Vé and Vili in control. Vé means woe and sanctuary. Vili is power of will.

        Vé, as annual complaint circle, with safe passage, would be rule of law. Vili would be order, enforced by will.

        Thus Vé and Vili are natural symbols, for law and order. This correlates to the Indo-Scythian terms: Yama and Niyama.

        Sanctuary can only function, by disciplined restraint of will.

    I’ll offer a bit of a different take than most on here. We must be careful what we wish for, or we might get it. I’ve seed the effects of balkanization first hand. More often than not, you are trading one set of tyrannical overlords for another. While the west is in fact dealing with a sadistic ruling elite, its not as in your face as say Mexican Cartels, or Sao Paulo organized crime. When I was working in Brazil for a stint, dead bodies were so common on the side of the road, we began to call them “baked potatoes.” This is because the bodies were covered with what looked like a mylar heat blanket until the proper authorities were able to dispose of the bodies. We have violence here in the US, but not to that level…yet.

    I don’t know what the outcome is going to be, or if there is a means to a “soft landing,” but for all the bad, we don’t have it “that bad” here at least overtly. If you think we have a police brutality issue, I invite you to travel a little more off the beaten path. I’m not taking sides here, I just feel that we have it better than most in nearly all ways and what’s “best” isn’t ever easy and here in the West, we’ve gotten accustomed to easy. Buckle up and good luck, it’s looking more and more likely to be a very bumpy ride.

      Death is a part of life. It happens all the time. Corpses at the way side is just less organized infrastructure. Corpses left hanging was common in the Middle Ages.

      Scythians making goblets of enemy skulls, is keeping friends close, and enemy even closer. When going to hell, one brings the enemy along, kicking and screaming.

      When there is no fear of death anymore, one can observe calmly, how the enemy is in escalating panic, by the prospect of demise.

        You are correct on many levels and when you lose your fear of death then everything else comes into view. The true power of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ our Savior comes to your mind and manifests infront of you. As I have told several people. I’ve had a good run and if I die today then in my mind I have truly lived. I do not fear what comes next.

        • anakephalaiosis on July 17, 2021 at 11:11 pm

          Vaccination is pest-ridden blanket, delivered into enemy camp, to ensure slow death, with gaslighted deniability. Cantarella is chemical catholicism. Poison is Roman eucharist.

          It means, that proven and documented court Jews, on Scandinavian thrones, are disguised enemy agents, acting in Jesuit agenda, on behalf of Pope Satan.

          Pope Satan fears, that Vatican will be nuked off the map, and playacting pretenders fear, that their rotting royal corpses will be dragged through the streets.

          Scythian secession was prelude to Assyrian holocaust, because next logical step was to strike back, and decapitate the Assyrian empire. That is brutal fact of history.

    • Awake on July 17, 2021 at 10:15 am

      Brazil has been the social experiment laboratory that has been used for the elite over the last 100+ years. In Brazil they used to have multiethnic communitys and through African / native Indian inter breeding programs ment to eliminate the African race, they have instead almost completely eliminated the pure native Indian people in Brazil and increased this mulatto blacks that still continue the African Brazilian population. Now in Brazil there are only 2 basic race catagories the government identifies. White European and Colored people. This forced integration of the blacks, native Indians and lower class European peoples has caused all the societal mayhem as well as deaths associated with it. It’s also the same exact racial program that has been forced upon the American people since the civil rights activists won in the 1960-70’s. We are currently degenerating into the same sick society as Brazil currently has due to the needs of the elite for more total control of the American population. When the real culling starts to happen, then the people will be forced to sort it all out along specific racial, religion, geographic, language, economic and ideology. All long past due in my opinion. Some of us will fit into the new energetics and many will not.

    • Loxie Lou Davie on July 17, 2021 at 2:13 pm

      Good point, Ronin!!!

      It is encouraging to know that we have various groups touring the country this Summer giving support to local communities & groups that ARE taking back control at the Local levels!! Sheriff Mack of CSPOA is having amazing results in educating Sheriffs all over the country to become Constitutional…..we CAN fend off the Feds at the local level!!

      BigBatUSA has a great tour going on!! I find it encouraging to listen to some of the locals telling their own stories. Today one lady who had come from Poland about 30 years ago struggled in Eng. to tell her story….but it was great to see!!

      Let’s hope it doesn’t have to come to “Baked Potatoes” in this country before a majority really wake up & smell the coffee!!! This isn’t about politics anymore….this is a battle between Good & Evil & we need to realize there IS a distinction there, that not everything is “relative”!!!

    • Richard on July 17, 2021 at 4:47 pm

      In one’s opinion, the polls seem to be more as agenda driven hype than a true accounting of the citizenry. Small pockets of densely populated urban streets in chaos do not represent the rest by a long shot but they get the most noisy media air time available.

      I’m in the Southern U.S. so no worries about getting what we ask for. With Confederate ideology, we’re more loyal to the Constitution and the true American experiment than Northeastern states were, and are… (isn’t it crystal clear to y’all, especially now!!) one of the biggest reasons for Secession and the Civil War itself anyway. We Southerners are venture capitalist from head to toe too… We’re quintessentially God fearing and believers in rule of law… Nah, when and if the South gets a chance to break away again, we’ll rise as an even better and more truer version of America and a representative republic than the currently sad and ‘not so great anymore’ U.S.A. We would have back then. We were rebellion basically against the same global cabal players back then too!

    BREAKING NOW! – FIVE Jet Blue Airlines Pilots DEAD, Media Intentionally Hiding Vaxx Fears

    • zendogbreath on July 17, 2021 at 12:43 am

      Not sure why this brings to mind Lytton in Alberta, Canuckland. The story I got so far is that the small town Doc there got so many adverse reactions from the vax in his patients that he started keeping records, made a study and was working with Sucharit Bhakdi. That’s enough to anger the technocrats would be deities.

      The town is mostly indigenous and had a horrific adverse events rate. Then it got a nasty heat wave. Then it got mysterious fires that destroyed over 90% of the town. Really odd fires that were identical to those in Cali and Australia last year. Someone even got video of beams of light coming into fire starting points. The destruction was worst on metal and concrete and practically non-existent on adjacent wood and plastic. HMM. Fancy that.

      That Doc is tough apparently. Saw a headline earlier tonight on a video that he’s reporting something like 61% of his vaxxed patients with damaged hearts.

      Where this goes nobody knows. But we can easily guess that Gen Milley is working hard to be the CCP’s friend.

      Anyone got a clue when this stuff ends? At this point, it might be nice to get back to making a living at neat stuff like property management and metal fabrication and I don’t know, maybe growing food?

Instead, it’s like the forum mentioned….a cross between “The body snatchers and They Live”….I don’t think this will end well.

        • Ronin on July 17, 2021 at 2:57 am

          I think that those that fail or simply can’t adapt and roll with the punches, won’t make it. Be it businesses or livelihoods. Famine is historically the favorite weapon used against the masses. My suggestion is that if you don’t grow your own food, you build relationships with multiple local farms, because sadly, not all of them will make it through this IMO.

          • Wlfgang on July 17, 2021 at 3:45 pm

            We already make our own bread – 3 simple ingredients, hardly any kneeling needed….starter made with flower, salt, water….then the bread, make with more of the same.

            It taks almost nothing to grow sprouts, they can quickly propagate, be grown from existing veggies, have 1,000 more times nutrients then regular veggies. Mostly it’s simple knowledge. We could feed the world with sprouts. I know may not sound appetizing but the point is, nobody would starve.

            The dandelion that many have posted on the forum about is also edible, nutritious and free as well as helps to “reforest” the planet. And yet, we destroy them and tag them as a noxious weed, poisoning them with what poisons us. Humans are the stupidest animals on earth.

            Local small food producers here went together to form a delivery network. From a variety of small farms, bakers, etc., I can order bread, meat, milk products and in season vegetables each week for weekly delivery with no obligation one week to another.

          • FiatLux on July 17, 2021 at 5:56 pm

            I agree about supporting and building relationships with multiple local farmers whenever possible. Wlfgang mentioned growing sprouts — that’s a great idea as well, especially for those who live in more urban areas.

            However, I’m not sure the elites will go for all-out famine in the richer, Western countries. Food shortages and soup kitchens, yes. But unless a country is already under totalitarian control, famine has a history of sparking revolutions — big, real ones. I think it’s more likely they’ll use food shortages (along with unemployment, foreclosures, poverty, and trauma of all sorts) to get people to beg for a universal basic income. Governments will happily grant it, provided you accept it in the form of central bank digital “currency” on your phone and obey all the “public health” and other rules. On the other hand, I guess it’s possible the elites want real revolution because they think they can control the outcome; I’m not convinced they can this time.

        • Richard on July 17, 2021 at 4:52 pm

    The survey is a trap in itself. It means to make you chose one vs the other and that can only lead to a bad place what ever side we chose to be on and I think in the end, that is the point. Chose to make the mistake…and many are.

    It’s unfortunately not surprising.

    I also heard a podcast today that Candace Owens was pushing some kind of conservative cell phone that is free-speech oriented and that the provider would never spy ever on their users, honest. The hosts were shocked that Candace Owens was promoting this very clear attempt at a honey trap so heavily. Since her start on the social media scene was with the splash of that was Social Autopsy which sought to provide an searchable online database which could include minors to dox people for politically incorrect behavior, I was absolutely not surprised.

      Correct. The shadow on the wall, in Plato’s Cave, is mimesis. The shadow counters one’s every move. Thus every opposition becomes co-opted and corrupted. That is a no-win situation.

      The trick is, to turn around, and face the cause of the pantomime, being the source of light, the well of Mímir. The Greek word for conversion, “epistrepho”, means literally to turn around.

      Placing the eye, into the well, is the idea of balancing a triad, in a diametrical opposition. This is the fundamental principle, behind the development of Scythian martial art.

      Pope Satan is the imperial shadow on the wall, whereas source of light is Christ.

      • Laurent on July 17, 2021 at 7:05 am

        I don’t disagree and I like the analogy of the cave however, where Man is concerned, I tend to start paying attention when the shadow looks back. Metaphorically speaking of course.

        • anakephalaiosis on July 18, 2021 at 2:53 am

          Sure. That is the duality of it. On the one side, the shadow is one’s own.

          On the other side, intelligent evil, that hides in shadow, does take shape of one’s shadow, by criminal means.

          Emperor Pope Satan has taken shape of the collective shadow, to rule by deception.

          That is the Vatican pantomime.

          • Laurent on July 24, 2021 at 10:33 pm

            I take your meaning but I view it differently.
            Now this isn’t necessarily a belief of mine per se but it is a particular interpretation waiting for a certain confirmation if one would ever occur so take it with a grain of salt as a working hypothesis. I have no clue what kind of confirmation I would need other than what you put out to the universe will come back to you so be responsible with that. Trouble is that confirmation would never really be able to convince anyone else because each of us of preoccupied with our own shadows.

            The shadow that I mean is our own aggregated consciousness reaching out so far into the aether that it inverts and stares back at you. Just like a dog who gets excited and barks at a mirror because it thinks there is another dog, we see our reflections into the world and add grandiosity and negativity to that reflection because it scares us since it points to our responsibility in the world.

He's supposed to be able to see through the BS, but he tries to sell people on the Civil War having been the South resisting Northern taxation, or some such rubbish.

      It is possible it was a war of Northern aggression as well as a war to free slaves.
      More likely it was a war to spread cheap labor north to factories and turn all labor in the US into slavery.
      Whatever the war was, the participants only knew propaganda.

      Roman empire is – like all empires – about slaves in uniforms, enslaving others into uniform, while expanding a bubble of a Stockholm syndrome.

      An empire is always a mind trick, and the banksters love it, because they profit, from spoils and slaves taken, by imperial expansion.

      A tribe is a family, and those who protect their families, against imperial enslavement, were called barbarians, by the masters of Colosseum.

      In the “civilized” Roman arena, slaves are fed to wild animals, as entertainment, to endorse Roman exceptionalism, away from accusation of barbarism.

  11. FiatLux on July 16, 2021 at 6:14 pm

    I think a lot of Americans actually would, at least in theory, support secession. However, anytime I see poll results these days, I have to wonder if they’re ginned up to convince people to accede to a desired agenda. So this could be interpreted as propaganda to get more people on board with, or resigned to, the idea of a crackup of the U.S. I’m not really sure what to make of it.

    • anakephalaiosis on July 17, 2021 at 1:45 am

      Bottom line is, that there is only ONE secession, and that is getting rid of emperor Pope Satan, whose subtle influence has molded the USA, from the beginning.

      Of course, Pope Satan is running in fear, in the Vatican, by the prospect of secession, because that opens up the prospect, of the Vatican being nuked off the map.

      Resistance movement against Pope Satan has been brewing since heathen times. We know who we are, having been burned at the stake, through centuries.

      Do Americans know who they are?

    • Richard on July 17, 2021 at 4:57 pm

      Between the HTML glitches on this page one would suggest that the polls seem agenda driven to suit snippets of narrative.

  12. ragiza on July 16, 2021 at 3:06 pm

    This is another indication that the people who wrote the Constitution about 240 years ago were much higher quality than the corrupt fools who have been running the US in recent decades. The founders knew to refrain from using government to force things on people, especially things that are perverse, dishonest, and have been proven to be dysfunctional historically.
    Maybe revitalizing the strength of individual states’ powers will be able to avoid a break up. A break up like this would be mostly cultural in nature, but it would have major economic and security implications for the fragments.

    • Mark Thrasher on July 19, 2021 at 1:41 am

      Only short term economic implications. Those who are heavily ensnared in the system will be the most affected.

  13. Richard on July 16, 2021 at 2:00 pm

    It seems straight forward that there is discontent within states to go-their-own-way, but that has consequences and generally is a foreign operatives delight toward chaos and take over. Saves them time and resources manipulating the masses. That is already in play.

      Foreign interventionist are usually only interested in the “balkanization” itself. After collapse unions, break away regions are usually left alone or given diplomacy as new nation states. The process for the U.S. is already started and shows no sign of reversing so far. We may be at the point to where we’re going to have to make our own diplomatic alliances anyway, so at this point I’m not even concerned with that. I personally see the U.S. as failed, untenable and “collapse” already… In the case of current cabal and administration, we’re alitttle beyond just intervention, I feel we may be under actual invited foreign occupation, and may already have been for quite some time.

  14. White Lily on July 16, 2021 at 1:42 pm

      In Genesis, one makes a bonfire, finds the guiding star, and walks in opposite direction, with a spear, as gravity vector.

      With two coordinates and a vector, one can establish a north-south line, and construct a compass, by basic geometry.

      Wherever man makes a stand, he is always in the cross hairs of his own compass, profoundly so.

      Sure hope you’re wrong about the Other’s and, what seems as their warped sense of humor.

    Been there, done that. The ten tribes seceded from the Assyrian empire, invented Europe and a martial art system:

    Newsweek should hire an editor that reads their article. Succession was spelled correctly, but should have been Secession. The tyrrany that large cities hold over rural areas is apalling.

      Or was it a subliminal thing? Success when talking about favored regions. Secede when talking about those who want freedom.

        OC: I think your hypothesis gives the cretin class known as journalists (or the bots that are fast replacing them) too much credit…

          In defense of journalism and credible journalist’s, thankfully there still are those, not all is lost.

          • FiatLux on July 17, 2021 at 6:06 pm

            Agreed. The problem is, they’re not at Newsweek or any other big, mainstream “news” organization, and there are virtually no independent, local newspapers left. For now, the internet allows the very few good journalists an outlet; I hope it stays that way.

      Do you mean tyranny in respect that a majority of voters in a city could affect the actions of the state that the rural population may not agree with, or does it go further than that?

      The decline in editorial proofreading, and publishing in general, has been declining for decades. I’m waiting for the first book to be published in “Spanglish” or “Ebonics” or some other version of adapted English. To my knowledge, it hasn’t happened yet; wonder why?

        Ignorance is Strength the last motto of Oceania from 1984.

          Marcos, you are one thoughtful,educated fellow. Good on you.
