THE MAN WHO REPRESENTED AMERICA

Published / by Lee Kessler / 5 Comments on THE MAN WHO REPRESENTED AMERICA

By now, the brainwashed partisans are criticizing and carping—blaming someone for the policies that led to his death, or shirking the responsibility for his death by saying it was a matter for the military in that state.  In other words, no responsibility for anything, just carping and criticizing, and point scoring. And the incessant and desperate determination of partisans to make themselves right, and everyone else wrong.

Lost in all the vitriolic swamp is the simple fact that Bishop Evans, when he jumped into the river to save two struggling illegal immigrants from drowning, represented the true America.  I don’t know the man.  I know nothing of his religion, his personal beliefs, or his opinions about absent borders and lawlessness.   I do not even know his race.. 

Bishop Evans lost his life in that river.   The two he was trying to save survived.  As it turns out, both are suspected drug smugglers, and are now in Federal custody I believe. So, this young man lost his life trying to rescue two already-criminals who were crossing illegally, and who turned out to potentially be drug smugglers and likely part of the crisis that cost 100,000 Americans their lives last year.

Here is what I do know about Bishop Evans, however.  In the moment he chose to dive in, I doubt he was reprimanding them in his mind for being illegals.  I doubt he was considering whether or not they were Al Qaeda, or drug traffickers, or human traffickers. I doubt he was concerned about their race, their nationality, or their political opinions. I doubt if he even thought of his own mortality.

In that moment, they were two people who needed help.  That is all.  They needed help.   And he chose to take full responsibility.  He died in the process.  But, in that single act, he showed us once again our own humanity.  He showed us what America truly is, and what it has produced.

Shut out all the “noise” and simply know that he was a human being helping other human beings.  That is what America—however flawed you may think it is—has always been, is still, and, if we are willing, will always be.

Bishop Evans represented humanity that day.  And, in so doing, represented America.

IT’S NOT TRUMP THEY HATE

Published / by Lee Kessler / 2 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.

“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

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!
