Attempted assassination of dozens of congressmen in the heart of America. We had descended into being a 3rd rate, third world banana republic. Our enemies are laughing at us and those that are Patriots are frightened.
I received an email from a reader and a family member expressed a similar view:
Dear Mr. Hodges,
Now that the deep state and their pedophilia is exposed, shouldn’t we be able to take them down and restore this country? Can’t we expose their immoral behaviors so that most people will not follow them?
Thanks for all that you do. “You can’t dodge the hodge”.
I wish it was that simple. There are committed Patriots and there are committed Communists (i.e. masquerading as Democrats). It is the middle group that will determine how this conflict ends.
Before the election cycle, about 8-10% of the public were awake and self-identified Patriots
After the election cycle, the number of Patriots grew to an estimated 20%. Many feel the Communists/snowflakes/anarchists total about the same 20%.
This leave about 60% of the population categorized as largely ignorant and inactive. Most know something is wrong, but as long as tomorrow’s meal is on the table, they do not want to be bothered. It is this 60% that will decide America’s immediate fate.
Breakdown of the Warring Factions
If the Patriots can overcome a corrupt Congress, a CIA/Deep State controlled media and the backing of radical subversives (e.g. George Soros), and establish a plurality of about 20% more converts, the system will self-correct as would any marketplace and America can regain much of our lost liberties. However, if the ignorant 60% remain a DUD (“Dumb Until Death”-Steve Quayle), we will have a purge, with major violence directed at the conservatives. However, if Deep State wins, we will witness a violent purge of conservatives in this country which will exceed Stalin and Hitler combined.
On the Verge of a Stolen Presidency
The mere word of a fired FBI Director, James Comey, is enough to institute a bogus investigation of a sitting President for the purposes of impeachment. The mere word of Comey, the NYT and WAPO, based on unnamed sources and a fired Comey are enough to disenfranchise the vote of tens of millions of Americans.
Amazingly, a blind man could see that Comey is obviously seeking revenge against the man who fired him and Comey has no proof of his obstructions of justice allegations against Trump. Further, the Deep State establishment media has provided enough firepower through the use of “unnamed sources, rumor and innuendo, that the mere opinion of the New York Times and the Washington Post are enough to bring America to the brink of impeachment.
There was a time in America that representatives such as McCain, Boxer and Graham would have been afraid to come out of their offices for fear that they would be chased down the street and tarred and feathered in public for their treason and their subsequent actions against a popularly elected president.
The American Middle Class: Living the Life of a Serf
A recent and prominent economic study was just released which found the economic condition of much of the former American middle class to be extremely dire.
In the report, researchers found that 44% of all Americans do not have access to $400 in cash should they have an emergency. And 25% of the nation cannot pay their monthly bills. Yet, corporate America has never more profitable, thanks in large part to the free trade agreements which have destroyed the wage structure and employment market of the American middle class.
Again, there was a time in America in which the members of Wall Street would have been afraid to come out of their offices for fear of being chased down the street and tarred and feathered.
What Is Wrong with America? Where Have All the Real Men Gone?
These three examples of what is wrong with America constitute the tip of the iceberg in that our children are not safe from the pedophile rings of the elite, the very economic existence of the American middle class is being threatened and the man who we elected to correct these types of abuses is on the verge of being illegally taken out of office. What the hell is wrong with America? Where is our collective backbone? Can we even find 10 good men with courage enough to stand up to these abuses?
Why won’t America stand up for herself? Why is the country, once a country which possessed courage and conviction, now sitting idly while allowing itself to be taken to the slaughter without so much as a whimper?
The answer to the above question lies in the psychological concept known as “Learned Helplessness” as discovered by Martin Seligman in the 1960’s.
“Learned helplessness” occurs when an animal, or a person, is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape from. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action”.
In the first phase of the learned helplessness experiment, Seligman placed a dog on an electrical grid, shocked the dog and noted that the dog would demonstrate the ability to escape the aversive stimulus.
In the second phase, the dog was barricaded on the grid and was unable to escape the painful shocks. Eventually the dog laid down and passively accepted the shock.
Seligman then removed the barricades and the dog could have easily escaped the shocks. However, the dog, conditioned by the prior set of events, simply laid down and accepted the shocks, without mounting any resistance whatsoever. This, in large part, is where America is at today.
By my estimate, 60% of the country has learned helplessness to various degrees. This is couple with the idea that most of these 60% also have cognitive dissonance in that they want to deny the changes that is in their face.
Keep this number in mind. It is my belief that about 2% of all Patriots are in the business of restoring their country. The rest are mere spectators. Throughout my academic career, I have immersed myself in discovering how change occurs. Why do some movements take hold and win the day, while others die on the vine? The answer, coming from the field of social psychology, is surprisingly simple.
Scientists from the prestigious Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have determined that if just 10% of any given population holds to an unshakable idea, that the idea will become adopted by the majority of the country. However, the scientists who belong to the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) found that if the ideas are shared by less than 10% of the population, the idea will not progress and will eventually die out. The research was first published in a peer reviewed E Journal in an article entitled “Social consensus through the influence of committed minorities.”
Computational and analytical methods were used to discover the tipping point where an obscure idea eventually becomes the majority opinion. The finding has dramatic implications for those of us trying to wake up the sheep in this country.
The SNARC scientists found that the 10% figure was applicable whether they were talking about the spread of innovations or to advance an ideal.
Reaching 10% of the population should be the objective of the alternative media and the primary goal should be the preservation of the soul and not to be quite as focused on achieving physical victory in this realm of existence.
Subsequently, the 2% of committed activists need to convince 8% of those that I call slacktivists to become active. Then, America would have a fighting chance.
The Consequences of Inaction
Once Trump is removed from office, we really need to fear what will follow. The crackdown will begin in earnest. To understand what is coming following impeachment, we need to consider the following.
There is a lot one can learn from the field of psychology. One of the things that psychology can teach is how so many people were deluded enough to follow two people like Obama and Clinton with all that they have done.
Here are the reasons why.
Finally, by my estimate, for each active Patriot, we need to each convince 4 people to get active. When that happens, we will have a fighting chance. If we do not, it is FEMA camps for millions.
Remember, evil never takes a day off and the FEMA camps are already built!
