The coming civil war: We lose

(Be sure to read ’till the end.)

By Earick Ward  November 2, 2017

As America’s Civil War is being re-litigated, do not the conditions for our next great struggle appear at hand?

Father against son?  Brother against brother?  Right against left?

The tension is palpable.  The rhetoric, from both sides, is ratcheting up to a fever pitch.  Short of some type of intervention, the tension, the rhetoric could turn to bloodshed.

While most of my conservative friends don’t seek this pursuit, they note that they will not shy away from defending their families, their homes, their values, and their country.  They also note that, as historic defenders of our Second Amendment right, they are prepared to go to war if it comes to it.  While these facts are true, let me suggest that in this coming battle, we lose, even if we win.

The (hard) left wants war.  The leftists’ attempts to divide us (Americans) by race, class, ideology are tactical.  They want for us to hate each other.  America’s experiment of liberty and self-rule stands in the way of their re-imposing authoritarian control over our populace, subsequently bringing about the long sought after one-world (Marxist) government.  Hate and strife are strong motivators.  If one can be convinced that “that rich man didn’t build that,” the logical conclusion is that what he has should be mine, and if government is not going to redistribute his stuff to me, then I am within my rights to take it by force.


Why do we lose?  We, today, are America.  All of us.  We are a nation founded on self-rule, protected by our ideals and our Constitution.  As self-rulers, we exist because we deem it so.  If and when we reach the point that we are literally at each other’s throats, we are no longer a nation, but warring factions, set on a course toward imminent destruction.

The left’s desire for a second Civil War is but a precursor for their attempts to have the U.N. deem that our Constitution is not the defense against war, but its cause.  The oppressed will clamor for justice.  The oppressors will be deemed enemies of mankind.  The American left and its globalist counterparts will announce that the American experiment has failed.

Yes, we will still have our guns, and we individually will still work to protect our families and our values, but our nation will be inexorably changed.  This is a win for the left.

The answer, then, is portrayed in the epic 1980s movie War Games
“Strange game Professor. The only winning move is not to play.”


The left is working overtime to incite America’s Second Civil War.  While it might seem tempting to take on Antifa’s pajama boys, take caution: this is exactly what they want.  

In fact, don’t be surprised to see a false flag-type event this weekend, structured to give the Antifas the moral high ground.

Our victory comes from not playing the left’s game.

  1. No…we win when the system works. The system works when the people we elect/hire do their jobs. WHERE THE HELL IS SESSIONS!

  2. “Why do we lose? We, today, are America. All of us. We are a nation founded on self-rule, protected by our ideals and our Constitution. As self-rulers, we exist because we deem it so.”

    “Our victory comes from not playing the left’s game.”

    Yes, and no. We are America, but most have forgotten American values or never learned them. This is particularly a dangerous state of being for all when it is the “enforcers” who forgot or never learned. This is probably the most important statement in my opinion, “We are a nation founded on self-rule”, followed by “protected by our ideals and our Constitution”. The first is true, we are supposed to be, and those of us that are still Americans self-rule and fight to teach others that concept.

    Why is it most dangerous for our nation, for the American people, if enforcers have never learned or forgotten the American values? Because they will keep on “just following orders” and “just doing their jobs” until they destroy all of us, or vice a versa. Yet, they have NO excuse for not knowing exactly what American values are – they took an Oath to a document that spells out those values in writing. Yet, the very few of the gov enforcement that actually STOOD/STAND for America are imprisoned or murdered for that stand, occasionally by the “brothers” that supposedlly had their back. That Oath is the ultimate declaration of “self-rule” because by that Oath ALL Oath takers take on the PERSONAL responsibility for their actions while serving.

    Law enforcement.First Responders have a list of things that is NOT delegated to those who serve within our government – meaning that there is NO LAWFUL power over the peoples actions in those areas. There is also a list of things where they do have a partial jurisdiction, but ONLY if certain named-in-writing things have occurrred, and their response that is LAWFULLY allowed is in writing. Instead most choose to work against our nation from within by “just following orders” and “just doing their jobs” instead of saying “No, I cannot follow that order as it is not LAWFUL”. By not bothering to read the document they are Oath bound to support and defend.

    Military actions are also in writng, requirements before the people can even be called up to be military. Yet, they go and die, get maimed, murder/injure those of other nations (it is MURDER because it is unlawful), etc because they too “just follow orders” and “just do their jobs”; none of which is doing what is required of them, to support and defend the US Constitution FIRST and FOREMOST before anything else, orders of superiors, duties of the position occupied.

    Actually, America would NOT be where she is today if those two “groups” did not assist in the destruction of our nation instead of KEEPING THIER OATH and taking thier personal responsiblilty to do so seriously.

    The people are also at fault. But those armed enforcers who have been enforcing UNLAWFUL edicts against the people have the most responsibility for where our nation is now. When WAS the last Congressionally declared war? That was the LAST lawful use of American military. When was the last fully lawful warrant issued and enforced without kicking in doors, murdering/injuring others, destroying their animals and property? 1960’s or so? That was the last time LE’s were lawful in their actions instead of working against their nation.

    We have never had a LAWFUL CIA/FBI, BLM, etc, etc, etc because they are NOT allowed here in the USA – think I lie? GO READ THE DOCUMENT FOR YOURSELF. Then, when YOU lose everything; your home, your clothes, your vehicles, the food you like to eat, etc pat yourself on the back because you did it to all, including yourself. Or KEEP YOUR OATH to the US Constitution, your own state’s Constitution and actually support and defend the USA. Because no US Constitution, no USA – no Americans.

    “”Our victory comes from not playing the left’s game.””

    OUR victory comes from playing a different game, not theirs. Our victory come when those who serve within our governments and committed TREASON, TERRORISM, other crimes against our nation are charged with those crimes. Soros commits treason against our nation weekly if not daily. The Clinton’s, etc, etc. All men are created equal means equal under our laws. No one is too powerful, too rich unless YOU (generic “you”) can be bought or blackmailed to be charged and arrested. If we can go into other nations and murder their rulers, why can we not go into OUR nation and charge ours with the crimes they have committed against us. Have used us to commit?

      1. Any Michigan State Police here?

        Color of law: “The appearance or semblance, without the substance, of legal right. Misuse of power, possessed by virtue of state law and made possible only because wrongdoer is clothed with authority of state, is action taken under “color of law.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, page 241.

        PRETEND LAW that you enforce against the American people, against our legitimate government. Don’t whine when YOU are no longer allowed to own anything, not even the clothes on your back. Remember, the government whose false and often treasonous edicts that you enforce, is going to OWN ALL things. You too will have nothing, and if they think your going to be a problem you will not live to be sorry.

        Are YOU going to keep your oath or “just follow orders” in that above listed UNLAWFUL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL program? Are YOU going to keep working against our legitimate government?

        “Drivers refusing to submit to the test will be subject to a civil infraction.”

        So on top of all the FELONIES, other crimes that will be done that day AGAINST the people by “law enforcement” we also have treason and *terrorism.

        28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

        Treason – Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States provides: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

        “The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.”

        Three elements listed here that are necessary for an offense to be treason:
        — an obligation of allegiance to the legal order (constitutional republic),
        — intent to go against that order (unconstitutional actions), and then
        — action to violate that obligation.

        Though at this time those actions will not be called “treason” or “terrorism” because under our LEGITIMATE government all people are considered INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY, they must be charged with those crimes that those people implementing that be performing, then found guilty. This is a perfect example of those who work against our legitimate government, against our nation by “just following orders” and “just doing their jobs”. Because it is better to destroy our nation then to be forced to leave your job and find another.

        Might want to listen to this by Dr. Vieira (just fast forward to bypass Jones each time). Understand that it is NOT the secession here that is important, but the Militia and its duties. IF, and that is a big IF, you are ready to stand for your nation, we need the Militia so that those things he lists, and I believe many do not understand this, needs the Militia (the LAWFUL one) to enforce, protect, defend these. Some will have their eyes opened when the reality of what a Militia of the several states are, and WHY they are truly bound to the US Constitution and to their own state’s Constitution.

  3. Don’t take the bait. Steer clear of planned ANTIFA protests today. Let the sanctioned authorities (police, National guard if necessary) do their jobs to contain any violence which may break out. Remember – they are liberty’s first line of defense – the unorganized miltia is her LAST line of defense.

  4. If George Washington thought this way in his time who would be ruling us now. The enemy got in anyway and have been playing guerilla warfare on Americans. Statistic reports shows the number one targets they chase down. The man made religion bible has made Europeans too soft and looking the other way. Played by the players.

  5. We should have been ingraining ourselves in the schools, govt., and corporate boards a long time ago. As of now we barely have a seat at the table.

    When this “Civil War” takes place, it will be hard to define the enemy. The worse outcome will be the opportunist countries (China, Russia?) that invade while we are busy.

    Something to consider: “You may not be at war with someone else, but they may be at war with you.” The Art of War?
    Point is, are you really going to just stand there and get your butt kicked? It’s coming, prepare!

  6. There’s a big difference between fighting a pickup truck load of thugs coming up your driveway to kill your family and take your stuff and confronting a bunch of radical Leftists at a demonstration. Not playing the game is actually stealing a page from the Left’s playbook from the Vietnam era. Remember the phrase, “what if they held a war and nobody came?” Most Conservatives I know are still in keep-our-powder-dry mode, while quietly collecting more powder. There will come a time when we need to fight back (as in meet violence with violence), but that time is not yet here. Our adversaries are engaged in near self-immolation at this point. As Sun Tzu so famously noted, “the supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

  7. Not sure what the point of this article is ?
    DO NOT TAKE THE HATERS BAIT ? Already knew that.
    If somebody wants to pick a fight with you there is only so much you can ignore.
    I would take the opposite point. If you do not defend yourself and your loved ones – WHY BOTHER BEING ALIVE ?
    I think the Jews in Europe in 1944 would agree with me. WARSAW UPRISING.
    BTW – the guys that signed the Declaration of Independence – mostly lost personally because of it, but they gave us a free country ( if we can keep it ) !

    1. 1.5 million Armenian white christimas genocided 1915 by jewish bolshevics/muslim cousins and about 1917 after seizing real Russia genocided about 70 million white christians. Poland genocided German christians causing Hitler to move in on Poland. How do we stop this when all the cards are not on the table. Knowledge!

      1. Just remembered the genocide of German Christians from 1945-1950 after WWII by bolshevik allies because they voted for Hitler. Now that Trump has been elected. You see them in the streets calling whites Nazi’s.

        1. Don’t think for a moment that it will be only white conservatives and Christians who will be targeted. Some of the officers killed by cop hating terrorists in the past several years were black, and at Berkeley, Portland, Boston, etc Antifa routinely attacked black and Hispanic patriots too. They hate anyone who is not them, and especially hate ethnic minorities who they see as being Trump supporters or otherwise on the right. Just ask Joey Gibson and Tiny, for example.

          1. Yes, I agree. I’ve seen many others than whites be killed by them over the past few years. I’m thinking as far back as the Christians in the days of Rome and who they might have been and the ones that meddled to bring their deaths about. In Germany 782AD the Massacre of Verden and marching the Saxons around after that. I do agree with you. I love history and now I see deep history. I commented a couple years ago about my family line the Phillips, and what I had discovered a decade ago. I have my DNA results now and I am matched with the same last name of many others as cousins. Points to Magnus Maximus, Spanish and maybe Greek, Italian.
            I am not a white supremacist not any more than any one else would be in their own homeland. I am not 100% white, but look it. The smallest of trait in me I found that one half I began in Asia central of all places. I was like wth, with greek, italian, Iberian peninsula,that worked it’s way to Briton. East Europe, West Europe, Scandinavian, Great Briton, Ireland, no Cherokee appears in from my mom’s side. My point is other than Pendragon being my long lost dad :),
            it is what is in the heart and mind that makes the person, not the color of their skin. Bottom line it is good vs evil and to discern whom which one may be. Like you described the color arm bands. I do appreciate your work and the time you put into this. It helps me to prepare and I am better now than I was five years ago. Thank you. Be safe.

  8. I just cannot believe how successful the left has been. They are being even more successful with pacification. Pacification was very successful in Poland.

  9. The question is: When leftists have been successful at passing laws that strip Americans of their rights and begin to put into action their restrictions and laws that order the confiscation of certain arms and property, what are WE patriots willing to do? The Constitution has no rights subordinate to another. Our founders and framers left us with the power under that document to protect our republic. Like those brave individuals who fought for this nation’s establishment and liberty and like Ben Franklin stated when asked in 1787, “…what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” His answer; “a republic…if you can keep it!” Patriots have been called since that time to protect this republic from enemies without. Today, it appears the republic is being threatened more from within. Ben Franklin’s words seem to echo more today than ever!

  10. Those who fail to remember history are forced to repeat it. The cost of liberty is and always paid in blood. We as a society failed to remember the sacrifice of those who have paid in full the ultimate sacrifice. Society has trivialized this sacrifice. Of course we lose even if we win, we have ignored this warning. Here we are again.

  11. The United States of America is no more a republic or a “nation” than was Rome in 50 B.C. Y’all need to learn that words are tools for conveying ideas. When you slur their meanings, ideas become wishful, fanciful, even nonsensical. Just as Rome morphed into an empire and lost her virtue and republican form of government by the corruption of her people and the avoidance of her constitutional obligations, we, at least a 150 years ago, became an empire and forfeited our republic. Check it out: A nation cannot be an empire. The two are mutually exclusive. A republic corrupted into a democracy is a tyranny of the mob, no longer a republic. You cannot work with ideas if you don’t understand the precise meanings of the words they’re built from. The nation assembled by my ancestors beginning with the French & Indian war is only dust and echoes for many years now. The Marxist kludge that we call America is unsustainable and we know it will fall. But we have inherited the ideals to build a new constitutional republic. But it will require understanding and determination to apply them.

  12. Looks like civil war to me. Around here. not far from Berkley,CA conservatives cannot even dare to speak. Violence will ensue. Like termites working in the night the left has gradually come to dominate- first and foremost – education. Only 1 in 33 in academia identifies as “conservative.” They “graduate” 190,000 new democrat (socialist) voters every month. These same youth have entered the workforce, and have come, over my lifetime, to dominate media, entertainment, corporations and the judiciary. And now we know they have infiltrated FBI, CIA, and big city LE. Clearly there will be no “bipartisan” solution. The cultural divide is too deep. The rot is too deep. The best outcome I can imagine is a dividing of the country. An enclave, state or collection of states where the Constitution, Bill of Rights and rule of law can be preserved. Somehow. I just joined Oath Keepers because it has become clear to me that here in California I am quite isolated. Looking for community that shares my values.
