The Fifth Column and the Republican Party

Published / by Lee Kessler / Leave a Comment

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?”

THE GREAT DIVERSION

Published / by Lee Kessler / 1 Comment on THE GREAT DIVERSION

On Aug. 8, 2022, the Media, the Congress, and We the People took the bait. We fell for the diversion, and are still mesmerized by it. The FBI raid on former President Trump’s residence–unprecedented, and likely completely unwarranted though it was– was just a diversion.

Would the raid have happened anyway? Yes, most likely given the repugnant and inflammatory tone of American politics these days. In reality, this heinous act will be resolved legally and politically, and we all know that. But just as people gawk as they drive by accidents on the highway, and just they are drawn to impending train wrecks like moths to a flame, so too were we on the morning of Aug. 8. drawn in.

Perhaps it is because I write political suspense novels inspired by current events, but my eye turned immediately to what was missing on that day, not what was blatantly covered wall to wall by all Media. Another drama was setting up. This one will effect us all much more profoundly, and for a much longer period of time.

Here’s the real attack, in my opinion. I was aware there was a full court press in the Senate to pass the Inflation Reduction Act, and I learned they were working through the night Sunday. In the wee hours of Monday, Aug. 8, the Senate passed that bill–sneaking it through before the CBO report would come out Monday morning. They obviously knew the report was going to show that the act would not reduce inflation. And they wanted it passed before the Press or the American people started to dig into the CBO report, and begin calling their Congressmen and women. Ask yourself, who passes something without knowing what the impact of that something will be or will not be? Are they a fool, an incompetent? Or just plain malevolent.

The report did come out Monday morning, and just as I was listening to the beginning reporting on it, everything was interrupted by Breaking News about the FBI raid at Mar-a Lago–also done in the wee hours. Once news of that broke, all reporting shifted to the political aspects of what had happened. Coverage has predominantly stayed focused in that direction. As a writer of prophetic political fiction, I believe the raid on the Trump residence was timed to mitigate the fall-out of the CBO report. That bill had only passed the Senate. It needed to pass the House, and if constituents had time to hear about the report, digest some of the report, and contact their representatives, some Democrats might have broken ranks and defeated it.

However, under cover of the massive attention-grabbing diversion of the flashing blue lights and dozens of people entering the famed Mar-a-Lago, Speaker Pelosi could quietly go about her business of getting the vote on the Inflation Reduction Act. On Aug. 15, it passed and,having been signed by the President, is now law.

Attention periodically gets pointed to the innards of that bill which includes the massive funding of the IRS, and the adding of tens of thousands of new IRS agents. Once passed, however, nothing can stop that sneak attack. If you think the abuse of power exercised against Donald J. Trump was bad, just wait to you experience the abuse of power the IRS can and will levy against YOU.

Pretty slick, huh? Stage a provocative diversion, and then sneak the bill through, with the camouflaged IRS expansion visible, but never presented front and center to the American people. Our representatives did not give us any time to review the bill, weigh in on what we liked and didn’t like, and potentially stop something we felt was very dangerous in the short and long run. No, they just rammed it down your throats while you were arguing whether or not the DOJ was engaged in an abuse of power regarding President Trump.

Media and pundits are sounding the alarm now. They are right to do so. But, they are too late. We took the bait. We diverted our attention away from something that effects every American directly and immediately.

Now also do you begin to understand why the warrant, which was gained under the pretext that it was SO URGENT that a full-scale seizure had to occur, was not executed until Monday morning in the wee hours? It is not a conspiracy theory to recognize that the timing of that was to insure it was a diversion, and that no one would really read or appreciate a dry accounting report when they had the more salacious Media circus to watch. Common sense tells you that if it were that urgent they would have executed it Friday. Why Monday? And why just as or before the CBO report came out to warn the American people that all was not as it seemed in the numbers, and the deceptive name of the Bill?

We the People are now in the sad cross hairs of an agency that can invade your privacy without a warrant. They can attack at will. Once again, the American citizen can be viewed as “guilty by accusation.” They can snoop, seize assets, demand documents and proof, and take your “treasure.” Anyone who has ever had a sudden and unexpected audit knows exactly what I am referring to, and how intimidating the process can be for the normal, honest American.

What’s wrong with a government agency whose very return address on the envelope causes one to quake? You know what I am talking about!

We took the bait. And we were reeled in.

When Do I Get Paroled?

Published / by Lee Kessler / Leave a Comment

In a country of laws and Due Process, the criminal—after he is arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced–knows how long his sentence is, and, most importantly, when he will be eligible for parole.  If he is good, and behaves himself, he can reenter the society at the time of parole.

So, here is my question. HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO BE HEALTHY AND NOT GET COVID BEFORE I AM PAROLED?  Is it 2 years (already passed)?   Is it 5?  Is it until I am 90?  If I am still Covid-free when I die, will you parole me posthumously?  Will you even consider the tiniest possibility that you were perhaps wrong, or misinformed yourself? 

You may ask, paroled from what?  From excoriation, discrimination, ridicule, censorship, and exclusion from the freedoms I once had.  And what am I guilty of?   Being healthy!   And, being scientifically curious!

Under Due Process also, the inmate gets to appeal his conviction.   He gets to challenge whether he was fairly and honestly convicted. New evidence may surface and be presented. My fellow countrymen, you know the drill here.  So, here is my question—on behalf of millions of us.  WHY CAN’T WE ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VIRUS, AND ITS ORIGINS—IF FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN FOR PREVENTION IN THE FUTURE?  Why can’t we have questions about vaccines? Why can’t we favor therapeutics over vaccines like we do with most other diseases?

The bottom line is that intellectual curiosity is warranted.  It is the American thing.  Intellectual integrity demands it. That too is an American thing.  No one can trust self-proclaimed authorities who lack intellectual integrity.  No one.

So what do you say?  Parole your fellow Americans and start talking to one another.   Start asking honest questions.  And demand honest answers from those “authorities.”  That too is the American thing.

NO SOONER SAID THAN DONE!

Published / by Lee Kessler / 2 Comments on NO SOONER SAID THAN DONE!

That sword cuts two ways.  In the same week as we released the novel, “White King and the Seat at the Table,” which is a prophetic look at a world being planned for us—no matter our politics–the real world came colliding into the story, once again making the novel appear real.

If you have already read the new book, get it out and get ready to read pages 53 and 54 again.   If you have the new book, but have not read it, I implore you to open it up and read as quickly as you can to pages 53 and 54.  (This is a suspense novel, so you will be able to read quickly!)  And, if you have not secured your copy yet, do so.  For one of the early readers put it this way, “Read it like your life depends upon it because it does—yours and generations to come.”

By now some of you are saying, “All right, Ms. Kessler, what’s the hullabaloo about?  What’s the event you are sounding an alarm on?

On October 28 Mark Zuckerberg announced Meta—a senior platform that will shepherd us into the future.   Before you rush headlong into blissful virtual reality, and embrace the opening salvo of a mighty game you are being sucked into, slow down, take a deep breath, read the novel, and then decide just how desirable is this brave new world Mr. Zuckerberg has created and will continue to evolve.  While you are pausing, look into Metaverse—its current applications, and its future potentiality.

I have spent the last 15 years writing about a specialized form of influence, now called Perception Management.   Formerly, you more likely understood it as information warfare or some such thing. 

The problem is actually simpler than you might guess.  It has to do with the anatomy of traps.  First and foremost a trap—any trap—is appealing.   It is attractive, and it holds something desirable in it.  Would that the most menacing and sinister traps that have been tearing us apart had devil’s horns, red fiery eyes, and breathed fire into your face.

Regrettably, that is not the case.  A good trap—a real trap—will seduce you.   It will titillate you. It will give you warm fuzzies about how fun and convenient it is.  It will stroke your ego with how futuristic and open-minded you are, and how you are part of the “in crowd.”  But, make no mistake, a trap is a trap.

And you now have a huge one staring you right in the face.  All I ask is that you digest this novel before you step through the portals of this new age entry into the future.  There is still time.

One last caveat:  I would have preferred to have been wrong about every issue I fictionalized in the “White King Series.” Alas, I was not.   History bore me out.  So, don’t dismiss or devalue this short Blog.  I do believe we are “right over the target” here.

“White King and the Seat at the Table”–Update

Published / by Lee Kessler / Leave a Comment

Launch Plus Two Weeks. It has only been two weeks since the launch of “White King and the Seat at the Table,” and the buzz is STRONG on this book. First, a recent comment from a dentist whose wife “disappeared” after the book launch.  Here’s what he wrote, “ She just finished reading your new book.   I haven’t seen her for a couple of days because she couldn’t put it down.  She said it is masterfully crafted.  You nailed it.”

More comments are coming in each day, so I want to encourage all of you who already ordered books and want to give additional books to friends/family/colleagues/representatives etc. for Christmas, that you order NOW to allow time for printing and for shipping.  Those who plan to order, but haven’t done so yet, I encourage you to do so as well.  Everyone, just go to:  www.whitekingrising.com to order at special prices, shipping etc.

And, while you are there, watch the video of the launch.  We recorded again and edited the original night to bypass the “interruption” many of you watched unfold.  So, the current launch video on the site is a GREAT place to send people that you want to have learn about the book and hear what was covered. 

In a few weeks, once those of you who ordered then or are ordering now have had a chance to read the book, we are going to invite you to a very exclusive, private meeting to address “Operation Stone-Age Viral.”  Though fiction, the situation is real, and the solution in the book is real.  And I am eager to elaborate with you on the future plans and your “seat at the table.”  For those of you who are asking, “what is Operation Stone-Age Viral?”—just keep reading!

You’re the best,

Lee
