We are at a critical juncture in our nation’s history.
I know that many of you are probably feeling frustrated and defeated. The electoral colleges met a few days ago to cast their state’s electoral votes for President. According to the mockingbird media, Joe Biden has won and is now officially the President-Elect. I understand that this has been demoralizing for many of you, but I would like to share some information that might help mitigate the anger and fatigue. I have long known President Trump to be much smarter than either the media or the left give him credit for. He is a strategist and a master at “the long game.” I suspect that much has been happening behind the scenes, out of the public eye, and that which has been taking place in darkness will soon come to light.
On Saturday, December 12, Lin Wood shared via Twitter, “Events will unfold quickly over the next several days.” I have been following his Twitter/Parler feeds very closely. Based upon those and multiple other sources that I will lay out before you here, I believe that things are about to get very, very interesting over the next week to week and a half. Bear in mind, the timeline of past, present, and future events are very important. We all need to be aware of President Trump’s September 2018 Executive Order (13848) on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election. James, our fearless leader here at The American Reveille, did a deep dive podcast on Saturday, December 12 about the executive order, taking it line by line and explaining exactly what the Order entails. If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend you listen to or watch his presentation as he does a fantastic job laying out what each section means in relation to what we’re currently seeing happen in real-time; that being said, for the purposes of this article, I will give you a brief overview for clarification with my own commentary in parentheses.
The Order begins, “I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the ability of persons located, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States to interfere in or undermine public confidence in United States elections, including through the unauthorized accessing of election and campaign infrastructure (collection/tabulation/ recording of votes-Dominion) or the covert distribution of propaganda and disinformation (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube…basically all of Big Tech), constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.” To break it way down in laymen’s terms, what he’s saying is this: if it can be proven through information gathering and intelligence operations that foreign actors (or domestic actors on behalf of foreign entities) interfered in any federal U.S. election by spreading false information, suppressing factual information, or by getting their fingers into the actual voting apparatus, then those who were involved can be sanctioned by the government. In this case, “sanction” means that blocks can be put on their interactions with the United States and/or they can be detained (arrested) and have assets seized (money, property, etc.). This is a big deal. We typically hear of sanctions regarding competing economies or governments, but this brings it down to the personal level.
In effect, what President Trump is saying in this Executive Order is, if you defraud and disenfranchise the American people of their votes, you will face severe punishment on both a personal and economic basis. We have several important dates and players that we need to look at in relation to this Order. First, we are given a timeline and explanation of what is to happen, “Not later than 45 days after the conclusion of a United States election,” which, by this way, is this coming Friday, December 18, “the Director of National Intelligence, in consultation with the heads of any other appropriate executive departments and agencies (agencies), shall conduct an assessment of any information indicating that a foreign government, or any person acting as an agent of or on behalf of a foreign government, has acted with the intent or purpose of interfering in that election.” So, by December 18, the Director of National Intelligence should have conducted an investigation, using the full scope of intelligence agencies, into any shenanigans that might have taken place around the election pertaining to foreign interference.
Obviously, it was a huge disappointment the other day when we heard that this report would be delayed. Apparently, heads of the differing intelligence agencies cannot come to an agreement about the extent of or what constitutes foreign interference. As disheartening as it may seem, this news has only been exacerbated and exaggerated by people on both sides of the aisle. Just because they miss the Friday deadline doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t show up next week. I would place my bet on the Director of National Intelligence holding the agencies accountable to the cold hard truth. Why do I think this? The man in charge of acquiring and compiling that report from the agencies is well-known and respected by the people, and rightfully so, he’s a very important player in this tense and foreboding game of chess with the enemy. So who are our important players anyway?
First, we have the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe. Ratcliffe’s background is in law. He served as a Federal Prosecutor, whose docket pertained mostly to national security and terrorism. He served three terms in the House of Representatives and “served on the House Intelligence, Judiciary, and Ethics Committees. From 2015 to 2019, he served on the Committee on Homeland Security and as chairman of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Subcommittee.” It is safe to say that DNI Ratcliffe knows his stuff when it comes to matters of terrorism, security, and cybersecurity. On December 3, Ratcliffe published an Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal titled “China is National Security Threat No 1” stating, “If I could communicate one thing to the American people from this unique vantage point, it is that the People’s Republic of China poses the greatest threat to America today and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide since World War II.” It’s clear that DNI Ratcliffe sees China as an intense threat to American sovereignty. China will continue to come up throughout the writing of this piece and indeed appears to be the “red thread” connecting all of the dots.
Further, on December 12, while making an appearance on Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo, Ratcliffe stated, “These election issues, we’ll see who is in what seats and whether there is a Biden administration.” in response to a question about how a “Biden Administration” might deal with issues of national security, especially concerning communist China. According to Ethan Huff at Natural News, “This is a bold statement for Ratcliffe to make, and one that he did not appear to make lightly. Ratcliffe would seem to know that some pretty big things are happening behind the scenes that could derail Democrat efforts to steal the White House from President Donald Trump.” Could one of those big things be an upcoming implementation of this 2018 Foreign Interference E.O.? He and Maria *were* discussing issues related to alleged Chinese influence over the elections, after all. Another important player related to the Executive Order is the Attorney General.
While I was in the midst of researching this piece, the current AG, William Barr, tendered his resignation to the President. Or did he? It’s all very cryptic. On the evening of Monday, December 14, it was announced that William Barr would be “departing” his role as of December 23. You can read the letter that he presented to the President [HERE]. I recognize that the jury is still out on Barr for many. Still, I find it interesting that he highly praises the President while also denigrating those who have taken every opportunity to resist him. Might Barr have been quietly working and gathering intel on the President’s behalf all along? This is where things start to get really good. With Barr’s departure, a new A.G. steps into the role. In this case, we have the current Deputy AG, Jeff Rosen moving in. So who is Jeff Rosen?
According to the Justice Department’s website, “Mr. Rosen has guided numerous initiatives, including an antitrust review of online technology platforms, criminal and civil opioids enforcement and legislation, investigations and prosecutions of I.P. theft and of cyberhacking, counter-UAS measures to facilitate the safe use of drones, redress of pandemic-related fraud, and reform of regulatory and administrative law, among others.” Also of note, “Among his wide-ranging litigation practice were cases involving antitrust, securities, RICO, business torts, trade secrets, contracts, government enforcement actions, and product liability, including class actions, as well as regulatory matters” (Italicized emphasis mine). It would seem that Mr. Rosen is quite qualified in the areas most touched by this electoral crisis, especially considering the recent and developing news that attorney Sidney Powell is currently assembling a RICO case against Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic.
Stepping into Rosen’s role as the Deputy AG, we have Richard Donoghue. In July of 2020, Donoghue left his role as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York to serve under Rosen as principal associate deputy attorney general. While in his position as U.S. Attorney for EDNY, “his team oversaw several convictions in trials that garnered global attention — including the prosecution of drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman and Nxivm sex-cult founder Keith Raniere. Before serving the EDNY, he served in the Army in the 82nd Airborne Division (the same unit as General Michael Flynn). He was a Judge Advocate General (JAG) as well as a Military Magistrate Judge. I would assume it is safe to say that Deputy AG Donoghue is well versed in the Uniform Code of Military Justice, but why might that be important?
In this citizen journalist’s opinion, it is important because in times of war or rebellion, “unlawful enemy combatants” may be tried in military tribunals in place of the normal civil or criminal courts. Might civilians and government officials who can be proven to have colluded with an enemy nation to undermine a federal election and install a malleable “puppet” indebted to said enemy nation be defined as enemy combatants? They surely can be defined as traitors and their actions as treason. Treason is the only crime that is specifically written into the U.S. Constitution. Article III Section 3 states, “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.” Any act that encourages the enemy’s hostile designs or weakens the U.S. is construed as providing aid and comfort. As we continue to watch, the evidence pours in, especially about Dominion Voting Systems and China. This executive order is something to keep an eye on, but let not your hearts be troubled. Our Commander in Chief is playing an epic game of 4-D chess.
To illustrate, I leave you with this: On December 7, exactly one week before AG Barr tendered his “resignation,” the 82nd Airborne Division posted several pictures to their Facebook account with the hashtag “Combat Ready” titled “A Storm is Coming” about what appeared to be a training mission entitled “Devil Storm.” They closed out the post with “The Storm is upon us…watch it unfold this week.” While I am not one to get too deep into the QAnon “conspiracy,” I find it intriguing that the same Army Division that both General Flynn and incoming Deputy AG Donoghue were affiliated with dropped that loaded bomb.
Could this be “The Storm” that President Trump cryptically alluded to 3 years ago at a White House dinner honoring the military? I suppose only time will tell.
