In the early 2000’s I began the journey that led to the 4 part series of suspense novels, culminating in the final book, “White King and the Seat at the Table.” Inspired by actual events that had peaked my curiosity, causing me to want to locate the source of the apparent collapse of America from within, I theorized there was an actual group—intent upon taking dominion globally. I asked myself, “What if a group of people wanted to take control of the world and its inhabitants? What would they do? Who would they have to defeat or destroy in order to accomplish their dominance?
My conclusion was that the obstacle standing in their path—the great experiment that liberated men—was the United States. And the American people were the underpinning of all that the United States represents. In order to render the United States impotent, I theorized this enemy would have to undermine the people themselves. And, more importantly, get the American people to do it to themselves.
The strategy is simple. It is as old as any military strategy that exists. Divide and Conquer. Through the centuries generals and armies have used this strategy to defeat an otherwise formidable opponent. Only this time, the Divide and Conquer strategy is being implemented through psychological warfare. You may call it Information Warfare. No matter the terms from the past, today propaganda and psychological warfare have evolved into Perception Management. Information and disinformation are pitted against one another in order to manipulate your perceptions, and thereby your conclusions and actions. This simple marketing strategy in the hands of power-hungry, arrogant men and women has brought the United States to its knees.
I am sure none of us doubts that America is a nation that is divided—right straight down the middle. The last two election cycles will have disabused even the most ardent deniers of the reality that Americans have two different universes they are living in now, and those universes are at war with each other.
The ongoing Twitter revelations have exposed this Perception Management in its most grotesque and dangerous light—harassment, censorship, collusion, and manipulation of data to manage the perceptions and actions of American citizens.
The very important question politically right now is: How was this division done? The answer: By inserting a Fifth Column not only into the United States, but most importantly into each of the foundational institutions we anchor on: Family, Religion, Education, Justice, even Government. There is a Fifth Column within each of those, and within subsets of each of those. A Fifth Column is defined as: any group of people who undermine a larger group or nation from within, usually in favor of an enemy group or another nationl It is comprised of domestic actors who work to undermine the national interest, in cooperation with external rivals of the state. And you, my friends, must come to understand this, or the Fifth Column will continue to erode government, morals, ethics, education, family values, individual identity, rule of law etc. There is an external enemy.
You may ask, why am I laying this out now? Can’t you just read my books to get an insight into how this might play out? You could. The novels are the allegorical story of this external rival and the internal Fifth Column over the last 20 years. I encourage you to do that. But, time is short, and there is one particular Fifth Column that I am sure exists. And it is hamstringing our Legislative Branch. That Fifth Column is not inside the Democrat Party. They are almost like a Fifth Column of their own, hell-bent on sabotaging the Constitution, sowing division wherever they go. However, they are overt and predictable. A true Fifth Columnist will be covert, unpredictable, and most typically embraced as a friend. That is why those involved are hard to ferret out. And it will always be a surprise when you find out who they actually are.
The Fifth column I am referring to is one inside the Republican Party. Of course, that is just my opinion. But you should ask yourself why the Republican Party can not get unanimity on key issues. Why do they have the unnerving capability of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory at almost every turn. Witness the embarrassing inability to elect a Speaker of the House. Witness the disappointing performance overall in the 2022 elections. Witness the acceptance of the monstrosity known as the Omnibus Bill. Who could possibly be encouraging members of their group to vote for a 3000 page document that no one has likely read, to spend an additional $1.7T? Who could possibly have failed to stall the vote until the new Congress would come in? Why would they not delay?
Here’s my challenge to fellow conservatives: Who is perhaps speaking self-righteously right now, as they encourage actions that would divide and weaken the party further? In “Julius Ceasar” the soothsayer said, “Beware the Ides of March.” Well, I’d like to say, “Beware the ‘Stand on Principle’ pitch.” Standing on principle is important, but it is also a propaganda button used to manage your perceptions. Who actually is being served if the Republican Party has been divided? Who seduced and compromised enough members to embarrass and discredit the party itself? Moreover, who is the enemy group or nation that these trusted members are serving?
The answer, as repugnant as it may be to you, or shocking to you, lies in this overarching reality: human nature. Why does a mayor run for governor? Why does a governor run for President? And what does a President, or top-echelon government official, run for? What’s the next rung of the ladder they are climbing? It used to be that being President of the United States was the pinnacle of power, accomplishment, and leadership. But, is that true today? Or is there yet another echelon of power?
We need to ask those who are being divisive, “ Who are you really serving—wittingly or unwittingly?”
Who and where are the external enemy groups, whose favor they curry? Who intends to exert authority over all of us, and who views themselves as senior to, not just us, but also our elected officials, and our Constitution itself? It is these people that some of our trusted leaders pay homage to. It is their favor they curry.
Here’s a hint to locate not only those who have been conned into destructive acts, but, more importantly, to ferret out those trusted allies who actually conned them: They leave a verbal breadcrumb trail. Listen now. Look for those whose verbiage includes such things as Global Peace, Global Security (Zelensky before our Congress) , Global Health, Global Justice, Global Climate Change Initiatives, Global Digital Currencies, Global Energy Policies.
The purveyors of globalism are the antagonists in my latest book. Those characters are as real as it gets, however. And unless we get very expert at ferreting out the Fifth Columnists in each of our institutions, our families, our churches, our schools, and our government will continue to erode until we no longer resemble our former selves—as a people and as a nation. I recommend we stop asking ourselves the questions, “Why would our leaders fail to protect the country?” Why would they do something so stupid? Why are they doing or not doing…?”
The answer does not so much lie in why . The answer lies in the question, “Who are they in fact serving?”

I rather liked the struggle for Speaker of the House. I thought it showed what a handful of “upstarts” could accomplish by taking a principled stand. I do believe we have a better speaker because of that protracted discussion and I am glad they did not cave to the noisome majority. It is because of that tendency to cave that we have those monstrous bills that are so damaging to our country.
