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?”

IT’S NOT TRUMP THEY HATE

Published / by Lee Kessler / 3 Comments on IT’S NOT TRUMP THEY HATE

On January 7, 2021 I was driving home to Florida after the January 6th Rally in Washington, DC.  Not one to normally listen to talk radio, I did that day. I was still in shock from the disconnect in the news between what tens of thousands of us experienced, and what the news was reporting.  And I was trying to put together the pieces for myself—and release the sadness that had gripped me, at the same time bracing myself for the vilification of all of us that would likely come.

Whatever talk show I had tuned into, I don’t even remember the host’s name.   But one thing a woman caller said—an insightful evaluation she made—struck me that day, and has remained with me ever since.  It was so powerful that the seed it planted gave rise to the solution I wrote in the novel “White King and the Seat at the Table.” I did not even know that day I would be writing a novel about our current global free-fall, let alone be directed in my looking and research by something a complete stranger said to an unknown talk show host.

Here’s what she said to the man.  She was trying to tell him that she didn’t like being told that she and others like her were just “Trump,” following in the “Trump Cult.”  In a brilliant analysis, she explained to the smart but cocky radio show celebrity that all the media and pundits had it wrong in their characterization of Trump’s supporters. “We are not Trump.  We are not mindless people trying to be ‘Trump.’ Trump is us. That’s why we love him.”

And in those simple sentences this ordinary American citizen put her finger on why 75 million Americans voted for him, and why his supporters still stay united and determined.  You may not understand this, but his supporters do.  Trump took the time to listen to the citizens of this country—no matter what party or status in life they were in.  He clearly identified with the people, and people in turn came to love him.

I don’t think the elites in Washington or anywhere else truly understand what a Populist is.  He was one of us.  Wealthier, sure.  More influential, sure.  But he possessed a stunning empathy and respect for the greatness of the American people.  We are not a weak people to be governed on behalf of.   We are the people who give consent to those who govern.  In the halls of universities, in Congress, in think tanks and in cable news networks, they don’t really seem to understand that fact.  Trump reflected the values and wishes of the American people.  Not the other way around.

But there are those who fueled hatred toward the President from the very beginning.  The attacks we all know were 24/7 and were brutally punishing and disruptive to a man who was simply trying to serve–every day in every way–the American People.  He truly put us first—whether we voted for him or not.

Far worse though is this:  there are enemies of our Constitutional Republic who do understand what I just said.  Though their attacks were aimed directly at him, these people clearly understood that he was us. It was you and I—Americans all—that they were attacking.  He was just the man in the middle who was willing to take the blows.

So, although you might have missed it, and despite all the bellowing from the mountain tops, it is not Trump that the world’s elites hate.  It is us.  If you want to know why his “base” is remaining so solid, I think it is because we realized long ago that one man can’t be such a lightning rod for hate.  He’s not.  He’s the shield in front of the real target.  On a gut level we know that we are the hated ones.   We are the target.  We are the ones who have to be silenced and stopped.  And we love the man who was willing to stand up for us, as one of us.

It is the values of the American People, the talents of the American People, the brilliance and work ethic of the American people that very real enemies hate.  Those who would reduce this country to a lawless tyranny and end our form of government don’t really care what party you are in—what jersey you wear.  They care about their own power globally.  And we the people are the only thing standing in the way of their authoritarian vision for the future.

We have far more that unites us than divides us no matter what the relentless propagandizing of the Media pounds us with daily.  Fortunately there is hope.  These people are so stupid that they believe we are mindless cult followers—with no vision of our own.  They believe we are Trump and can be dumped on the same trash heap they want to dump him on.  But they are wrong.  They are blind.  We are who the American people have always been, and Donald J. Trump is one of us.  He exemplifies us.

So, the next time you are tempted to join in the Trump bashing, echoing their cliched criticisms, just remember it is not Trump they hate.   It is you.  What they say about him is how they feel about you.  They know he reflects you.  We do not reflect him. And the enemies of our Republic, both foreign and domestic, just can’t abide the American People.  It is just that simple.

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.

WE LAUNCHED!!

WHITE KING AND THE SEAT AT THE TABLE” LAUNCH, FIRST TWO DAYS, AND REBROADCAST

Well, the booked launched on Nov. 3!!  And, for those who were there watching it live, you know a most unusual occurrence happened right near the beginning of my talk.  The viewer could not know what happened, and my wonderful guests stood in for me until I could resume.   Let’s just say what was happening on my side resembled a scene from the novel itself!  You should ask me about it sometime, especially if you need confirmation that this book is “over the target.”

The good news is that the following night we did Take Two on my launch talk, edited it with the insightful and inspiring opening with the five guys from the first night, and have posted it on www.whitekingrising.com  So, for those who would like to watch it again, without the disruption that occurred, just go to the site.

For those who had planned to attend, but were unable to, go to the site and watch it.

For those who had not planned to attend, you may want to do so now.  Here’s why:

The book launched on the evening of WEDNESDAY Nov. 3.  Though people were just able to order their books that night, some found ways of getting into Kindle before they even got their signed copies in their hand.  By FRIDAY people had already finished reading it–in two days.  Here are some of their comments:

“…I started reading it on Kindle because I couldn’t wait for the book to arrive, and want you to know you are messing up my schedule!”  Wink, wink

“I finished your book this morning.   I stayed up way too late last night because I could not put it down. Can I get you to do an interview, and get you to come to the Northwest?”

“OMG!  Your new book is a knockout!!”

“We are going to make this a best seller!!!” 

Two events were booked that night for Spokane, Wa. and Sarasota, Fl.   Discussions are commencing for many more.

Thank you all! I encourage you all, once you read it, to post review comments on www.whitekingrising.com , and to go to Amazon and post reviews there. This is just the beginning!

“LAST CALL” FOR LAUNCH OF WHITE KING BOOK

Published / by Lee Kessler / Leave a Comment

This is the last call for reservations for the Nov. 3 launch of the fourth and final book in the White King Series!  To attend, or invite others to attend with you, just RSVP to the email at the bottom–and there is still time to get on the list to receive a link to the private virtual event.  Nov. 3, 9PM ET, 8PM CT, 7PM MT, and 6PM PT.  Never have I written anything more urgent than this book.  And, never have I been more confident of the result it can produce. (IF YOU ALREADY DID AN RSVP, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO SO AGAIN. BUT YOU MAY USE THIS TO INVITE OTHERS.)

Taking a page from the American Revolution and Thomas Paine, this is the clarion call.  It connects some dots even the most awake miss, and a new, FULL picture emerges.  The full picture of an attack upon us ALL opens the door to defeating that attack.  It can be defeated.  A partial picture, however, has so many disjointed and disunited areas to address that it is just overwhelming.  And for those that are not awake, it will wake them up, and get them to LOOK.  Then you come in.  You will learn at the Book Launch Event how you are the hope for a better tomorrow.

Some of you are new to the White King books.  Here is a summary of the journey I and the readers have made over the last decade with these novels:

The book “White King and the Doctor” was about a Fifth Column inserted into the United States that was designed to sabotage our foundational institutions and break the solidarity of the American people.  This was done through Information Warfare, Psychological Warfare, and Mind Control.  It is the story of the deliberate destruction of the American free press and the sabotage of Education, Family, Religion, Justice, and Military.  The first book prophetically addressed how it was done using the free press, and it laid out how to take control of another person’s mind.

“White King Rising” is the story of a Trojan Horse brought here in order to accomplish the goals of the first book.  And it revealed the key tactics to take America down from within.  Every year tens of thousands of Americans succumb to this Trojan Horse.  And one in four Americans today are in fact under the influence of its vile strategy.

“White King and the Battle of America: the Endgame” is the story of WHO sent the Trojan Horse.

On Nov. 3 we unveil the new book, “White King and the Seat at the Table.”  This is the novel I never thought I would have to write.  I answered my own “clarion call.”  It is a big, top-down picture of WHY they are doing it, and WHO REALLY is doing it.  Though fiction, the message is TRUTH, and it can unite us all.  It is simpler than you think.

You need only DARE TO LOOK.  The story will reveal a lot to you.  The question is: Are you willing to look?  Really look at things you have avoided or devalued and dismissed before?  Come on Nov. 3.  It will be a night of HOPE.

Enjoy this Early Review and I will see you on Nov. 3.

Like the gasp of instinctive adjustment when entering cold water, the reader palpably reacts as real-life, real-time events and people begin to be recognized.  Kessler, known for her “God’s eye view” perspective, brings into sharp focus the murky, muddled connections of seemingly unrelated happenings and their effect on our country and world.  As the plot and characters move briskly between cities and continents, intentional destruction and soulless, malevolent future plans—across all aspects of society on a global scale—are revealed.  Truth is revealed, both damning and liberating.  The hero himself realizes that “What you cannot face will bring you down.  But what you do face, you have a chance of defeating.”  An intense battle ensues to change the course of events.  The battle plan’s creation itself is ingenious, enlightening, and a true example of Kessler’s talent for analysis and storytelling.  While deeply frightening in its plausibility and urgency, this “peak heart rate” thriller is also hopeful, humorous, touching, and inspiring.  But most importantly, it is a harbinger and call to action—quickly—for all who care about the preservation of our very humanity—indeed, our “humanness.”
