Noted in Passing: “You Are Here” Our Story So Far by Klahn

Casey Klahn writing in a comment onThank God summarizes:

It would be good to turn the narrative around to: democrats rioted all across America in 2020 and drove a wedge into the population, essentially beginning CWII.

The whole story is dizzying. Imagine trying to summarize this irredeemable shitshow to your college students 50 years hence, or to your great-grandchildren.

DC got unmanageable by the people, and this was called the Deep State. It began to take on aspects of Mao’s China, Lenin’s Soviet Union, Marxism, and Fascism, but also to become a political entity in itself, characterized by intensive, unelected bureaucracy and criminal politicians.

Trump was elected as a turn-around CEO, kicked ass and took names, and generally got the economy roaring and almost every war lowered below the boiling point: he never got the US involved in any new wars, and refused to escalate conflicts that he inherited. He turned the border crisis around and threatened the Deep State with his policies and successes.

The Deep State, along with a corrupt media, went full-time to oppose Trump, to the extent that they manufactured a health crisis out of a virus that came from China shrouded in mystery. Although it was serious to have China Flu, the reaction to the flu was so over the top that governments from mayors and governors, and bureaucracies such as the CDC, the medical community, and large businesses, all colluded to lock-down society. People weren’t allowed to work and travel was restricted, and yet the numbers of sick and dead were not dramatically high, and the CDC and the medical community lied and fudged the numbers to include those who died of other causes but may’ve had Covid as well.

The death of reliable news created panic among the citizenry, and to the point where people couldn’t trust the government or govt. agencies. Distrust for the FBI, the CDC, and Congress was sky high, and in the midst of the epidemic lockdowns, the democrat party began sending armed militias into the streets to foment race riots. All of this happened in order to cover for the theft of the 2020 presidential election and to prevent Trump from being reelected.

Worries about personal safety and Constitutional rights and privileges were exacerbated by media and political gas-lighting of the people. People began to believe that they were entering into a time of a new Civil War.

In an unusual, and yet easily recognizable pattern of corruption, presidential election-theft, the very popular Donald Trump was unseated and a corrupt and inept old and established politician was put in office using a mixture of established election fraud and a new, computerized form of theft in which vote numbers were switched, en masse, to show a win for Joe Biden, who essentially did not even campaign, using the excuse of the epidemic and of his frailty.

In a dramatic and frightening move, the political and bureaucratic occupants of Washington DC fortified and occupied the national capital using a large force of national guardsmen to seal off a “green zone” from imaginary rioters. In the chaotic time between the vote and the inauguration of the fake president, the FBI coordinated a pretend riot and a politically theatric occupation of the capitol during the counting of electoral college votes in which 5 or 5 key state’s votes were accepted although they had been, following the same pattern, switched from Trump to Biden in the dead of night.

This had all the marks of a Color revolution, which is a type of intelligence service (CIA or NKVD or Stasi) operation that generates unrest and political violence to overthrow a government.

These times also resembled closely the cultural and October revolutions that brought the Russian and Chinese communist take-overs.

In America, and also much of the world, similar events happened that had happened under 20th Century totalitarian states; shipping was mysteriously stopped at West Coast ports, and also at ports around the world, energy was involved in artificial crises that created high prices and shortages, schools were a bizarre place for Soviet-style indoctrination and if parents tried to interfere with the state’s plans, they were crushed by state threats and investigatory abuse.

The economy went from being robust under Trump, to crisis mode almost overnight. Food and fuel shortages, false lockdowns for invented health reasons, overbearing vaccine mandates, a politically motivated emptying-out of the otherwise apolitical military based on political witch-hunts and vaccine mandates all swept through the country like a maelstrom.

The only thing creating friction or resistance to the absolute tyrannical overthrow by Marxist and Fascist-style politicians, big technology and a corrupt media, and an unelected bureaucracy, was the unusual constitution of the United States, and the empowered citizenry of the US. Although their constitutional rights to free speech, freedom of conscience and religion, freedom of the press, freedom from unusual legal overreach, and most importantly the freedom to own and use firearms, were under heavy attack, these rights were enshrined as law and the people made use of them as best they could.

In particular, the people were an army unto themselves, and so well-armed that the corrupt totalitarians feared them, and held memories of how the patriots who beat the most powerful nations on Earth in wars including the Revolutionary War, and the two World Wars, and also who fought a bloody civil war, fought like hell-unleashed and would not tolerate a loss of their liberties.

This was the lead-up to Civil War II…

    Good on yer, Casey,

    My only question is have we been too patient, have we waited too long?

    Many battles, many wars lost by reacting too late.

    • Mike Austin November 20, 2021, 9:36 AM

      And by reacting too son. I just read a few minutes ago of the Battle of Idistaviso (16 AD) where Germanicus defeated the Germans under Arminius. Arminius’ plan was sound, but his German hordes ignored his orders and attacked too soon. The result:

      “the enemy were slaughtered from the fifth hour of daylight to nightfall, and for ten miles the ground was littered with corpses and weapons.”—Tacitus

      I have no idea when our own Fort Sumter will break out. But I am as ready as a 68 year old man can be. All I wish is for the damn federal government to leave me the Hell alone.

      • John the River November 20, 2021, 1:13 PM

        People that want to be left alone, people who aren’t interested in politics; Sorry!
        Our overwhelmingly leftist, liberal Government won’t allow you to sit this out, or more importantly, not contribute heavily to their War Chest.
        The hands that squeeze the life out of Pelosi’s fat neck will belong to a man that just wanted to be left alone.

        • Mike Austin November 20, 2021, 1:37 PM

          So true. They will not leave me in peace. Someday—and I have no idea when that day will come—they will beg for peace. They will receive the same peace that the Hebrews gave to the Amalekites:

          “Now, go, and you shall smite Amalek, and you shall utterly destroy all that is his, and you shall not have pity on him: and you shall slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.”—1 Samuel 15:3

          Works for me.

        • Mike Austin November 20, 2021, 5:49 PM

          Or as Trotsky said, “You might not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.”

      • james wilson November 20, 2021, 2:11 PM

        It is the left which is moving too soon. Their plan, organized by the Frankfort School in the 1920’s, is to suck the life out of normie generation by generation, but quietly, and it’s working very well. When they realize their most recent missteps they will pull back and wait until there are too few proud people left to organize. Not long. Republicans play that necessary part in the plan and are a great obsticle to change. Only greater overreach by the left can spark a massive change in course.
        Tocqueville- The mental habits which suit action do not always promote thought. The world is not directed by long and learned proofs. All its affairs are decided by the swift glance at a particular fact, the daily examination of the changing moods of the crowd, occasional moments of chance, and the skill to exploit them.

        • Mike Austin November 20, 2021, 2:50 PM

          “It is the left which is moving too soon.” So very true. Such activity is always a sign of desperation, of fear. They have a sense that time is running out—which for them it is. They remind me of a rabid animal: frothing at the mouth, running wildly to-and-fro, biting anyone within reach. They simply beg for a spear thrust into their chest.

  • Mike Austin November 20, 2021, 9:27 AM

    This should be pasted into every US History text in every school in the nation.

    Awaiting chapter 2…

    • Casey Klahn November 22, 2021, 9:55 AM

      Thank you, brother.

    Remember this Holiday and Christmas Season… I sent this to all my large family.
    The ‘meek’ will not continue to inherit under what’s left of our Constitution…

    Freedom of Speech begins in the Family…

    I need to send this to all you… whether you read it, or not… or like what is written, or not. I’m sending to my Family… you should too, as all need to read this.

    If you think I’m ‘ageist’ about family, I feel sorry for you and your future.

    If you think ‘family’ is out dated… you need to fear for your wellbeing.

    I believe that Freedom of Speech begins in the family. I believe the family is the largest and the most solid building block of America. Family is America.
    Rockwell American Thanksgiving

    Over the last decade or so, most families now gather as foreigners to each other… afraid to be the way we were once towards each other as family… loving people of blood and association. Looking each other in the eyes and projecting thoughts of love and affection. Hugging each other as unpretentious children naturally would. Defending each by standing back to back read to repel those who would do another family member harm.

    Family is where each of us should be able to find confidence, comfort and support and where we can “let our hair down.” It should be a place that love permeates… regardless of beliefs.

    Being tactful is one thing at family gatherings. Like knowing your married Uncle is having an affair with Martha, another family member also married and all trying to avoid any mention of it… or talking about the fact Aunt Gertrude is unapologetically flatulent.

    It’s prudent to keep comments on Aunt Gertrude to yourself… actually unnecessary to talk about, as the odor transmits a message in lieu of words. Unless she says… “Someone’s stomach must be upset!” deflecting the blame from herself as she stares accusingly at an innocent family member.

    But being able to openly talk about issues that are political or ideological… that’s what made us great in the history and scheme of this timeless world. These issues need to be discussed at family get togethers… maybe not prudent to the cohesiveness of some families, but necessary to maintain one of our Bill of Rights that is critical to the continuance of America’s remaining Freedoms. Freedom of Speech.

    How has it come to… you telling your Sister about the most intimate details of your last night’s high school date… but now you’re afraid to ask her whether she’s been vaccinated? Age and wisdom, you say. Bull shytte… it’s far from wise.

    I’m certain many of my family members would rather this not be sent out by me. They’d rather sit uncomfortably around other family members with a shytte eating look on their face and be compliant to those who have become the social dictators and censors in the family.

    The common warning by family dictators and censors… “Ohhhh… we don’t talk about that here!” while you gaze at the decades worn face of the sibling who’d just spoken those words, wondering if the deadly sounding tone of finality of that statement and those taut lips that barely reveal their teeth don’t have more in common with a blood thirsty wolf, than the genetics of your parents and family.

    So, the meek and compliant sit anxiously wearing that false smile while constipated with thought and emotion.

    Well, here’s the newest of the family prohibited topics. The covid. I refuse to capitalize the word covid as I’ve lived in Africa where my wife was been born and raised. When you have been amongst Cholera and Typhus… you know what an epidemic of dangerous infectious disease is… and covid is not that.
    So, here’s my latest on our family gathering… not. Some family, blinded and ignorant believers, have come out directly asking that all attending family functions be vaccinated. These same people also veto discussion about the covid.

    I have a friend whose response to that in his family was something like this to his wife… “Relay to him that I need to do an anal swab on him with a wash cloth attached to a broom handle. The broom handle is quite long…” he said… “I want to make certain I get into the farthest and deepest recesses, because it must be there… since he believes covid is so deadly and everywhere. This inspection may take some time.”

    “Or, all the vaccinated attending can provide us with a blood Serum test proving they have covid antibodies or don’t have covid and that they’re not carriers and shedders of other infectious diseases.”

    I say at the conclusion of my book the Civil Defense Manual…
    “I have 75 years of life experience. I have a ‘color crayon box’ family of all races, beliefs, sexual identities, religions. Like amongst people of the world, it is a constant struggle in my family, but I encourage people to tolerate each other and live in harmony.”

    Damn… I’ve got to read what I just wrote again. I have family members I haven’t talked to for years… because in their quest for knowledge, they’ve become so “enlightened by ‘education’” that they’re literarily turned into believers in that greatest illusion and hoax of all… Communism.

    But, for their own good and that of others, they need to talk with some of the people that I know who’ve lived in it and risked their lives to escape from its relentless and spirit extinguishing bounds. They need to travel more than the 500 miles they’ve been from home… all they know of the world comes from books.
    That being…

    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all for 2021!!
    Give hugs and kisses to my family members.

    • gwbnyc November 21, 2021, 1:13 AM

      Dalrymple related that he had interviewed thousands of inmates during his career, and that in every interview a point was reached where the inmate would say to the effect, “then I began to associate with the wrong kind of people” or “I found myself among a crowd that was a bad influence on me”, etc.

      Then he added he had never experienced an inmate identifying himself as “the wrong kind of person”.

  • Casey Klahn November 20, 2021, 3:53 PM

    I just wrote this summary to make some goddamned sense of it all.

    With a bit of illumination, I may yet know what is happening, and what to do. It’s a daily problem, but at the same time I savor the love of my family and the kindred spirits around the campfire. In the distance, a tattoo is heard playing.

    What animal fat works best as a lubricant for my Browning action? How much TNT does that culvert need to crater the road? Which shot works best against a dropping drone? At what point do I discard the phone, and then how do I communicate down the road? Will my old cradle phone work as a sound powered phone?

    • Brian_E November 21, 2021, 11:53 AM

      This is much more than just a summation of the last couple of years.
      It’s an outline of how our Republic has been brought low enough to start shooting amongst ourselves (again) – and each paragraph has enough backstory to write a chapter or about. And it might well make a good book, that – unlike those by others (by Huxley, Rand, and other) would better serve as a warning rather than the ‘instruction manual’ as our opponents have chosen to use them.
      I don’t feel up to the task – but I’m going to save your outline, should you or someone else not step forward, and to help make sure that the passage of time doesn’t allow at least the outline of the story dim to obscurity.

    • Boat Guy November 21, 2021, 8:21 PM

      Good summary/outline that should be disseminated. Many of us see the situation as you do; those casting aspersions on “inaction” are agents provocateur or just …assholes, for wont of a better term.

    I agree with him 100%. You drilled down to the essence of this time in history.

    • Casey Klahn November 22, 2021, 9:54 AM

      HumDD, yes I do consider Mike’s praise high, and yet I just look at it and see grammar and chronology errors. And yet, I persist in commenting on here where we have many intelligent and stalwart readres, and 1 epic good author/blog owner.

  • Dirk November 20, 2021, 5:59 PM

    I for one have grown tired of the predictions “Yearly” for CVII. Sorry friends, but not one sole here has theBALLS to dip their toe into that pool.

    Na here we are talking shit, quoting history,,,,,all will drinking red wine, eating beef tartar, trout almandine.

    Sorry I’ve grown tired of the bravado many many years ago.

    Casey well done, when you write to literally cowards, don’t expect positive results.

    Happy Holidays!

      • Dirk November 21, 2021, 9:27 AM

        Logan, after reviewing exactly what “ Black Pilled “ is,,,,, you are probably correct. My wife my friends tell me I’m a shit magnet, with an attitude. . Also probably accurate often.

        Logan think if we ever meet face to face you would learn in a very casual happy go lucky person. Open to hearing all points of view, understand I WILL research if I find it problematic or recognize it to be propaganda.

        I’d never paid attention to the meaning of red or blue pilled. never heard of black pilled.

        Took the time and researched multiple definitions of black pill, and recognize many,,,,,, not all of the definition applies.

        My observations are based in and on living around the world, being military, and law enforcement for the majority of my working years. I’m just as comfortable slapping with the left or the right in the face.

        It’s simple, all I want is the truth. I’m capable of coming to my own conclusions.

  • Lila Leah November 20, 2021, 6:43 PM

    excellently written recap, couple of unknowns still. Why didn’t Trump, who knew it was stolen, use the military? His son in law is a snake and got his father to hire Moncef Slaoui, another snake to run Warp Speed. Did he read that document he signed? Doubtful. Is he the joker in the Mason card game? Will they bring him back to quell the storm just in time to build the temple in Jerusalem and bring in the full mark of the beast? Or will he repent for signing the nation away to Pfizer and Fauci and confess his part in the death and maiming of millions from the bioweapon. It’s possible he didn’t know, but he ought to now. Our job? Repent, Pray. Cry and sigh for the abominations. This is way bigger than man. We need the Creator to fight for us. Oh, and let’s remember what founded our nation. Those Ten Commandments, yes?

    • Tom Hyland November 20, 2021, 9:28 PM

      Just maybe Lila you’re reaching the conclusion that Trump was never a “white hat”… he was never going to save anyone. Trump was bailed out by the Rothschild bank when his Atlantic City casinos were circling the drain… that was back in the 80’s. The Rothschild’s expected payback and maybe promised he’d become President someday…. but payback would be imminent. He rewarded the Rothschild bankruptcy officer, Wilbur Ross, with the position of Secretary of Commerce. While campaigning for the Presidency Trump was vehemently opposed to vaccines claiming they were the leading cause of autism in children. Payback insisted he become “The Vaccine Salesman to the World” once he was handed the White House. Trump cried that the mail-in ballots were going to steal the election… while at the same time he was forced to promote the vaccines…. which was the major cause of the mail-in ballots. Politics does not exist to help anyone but its cast members.

      • Lila Leah November 21, 2021, 11:17 AM

        thanks, yes I was aware of his bailout. which is another indication of the joker in the stack. very kind of you to respond . the hand of Yahwah is not short, it can reach right down into any plutocrat’s heart and twist it. Let’s hope that happens. Take care

  • brinster November 21, 2021, 3:55 AM

    The Rittenhouse verdict may indicate a turning. The legacy media now has no credibility, after having spewed 14 months of lies. It means the right of self defense is still with us, and I fully expect the slime left will try to restrict or even do away with it.
    I happen to carry my Sig P365 to church every Sunday, not to kill, to deter. Just in case some maniac decides he/she has a mission to kill innocents. I might die in the process, but I ain’t gonna be an easy target.

  • Jack Lawson November 21, 2021, 11:33 AM


    I tend to agree with you. I’ve heard the bravado for decades… like the incessant moaning of a dying man. Lots of talk and little action. I hate to see it come, but force of arms will occur… rather that than sliding into and ideology of the most barbaric of mental crimes… forcing all to betray their own minds by repeating the mantra of Communism and its imbecilic slogans that you don’t believe

    Notice how the Left seems to have backed off for the moment after Rittenhouse. They won’t be so eager to yell… “Let’s go to the barricades Comrades!” when they realize that may be their last action on earth when someone with Stage IV cancer and nothing to lose perforates their body from 600 yards… or most likely point blank like young Kyle Rittenhouse did in defense of his being.

    When illusion of ideals and reality collide… reality wins every time. They know that… so I believe they will come after Constitutionalists from another angle… what, I don’t know.

    However, I fully expect a real pandemic of something like Small Pox. Where the 70 percent of Americans will be wiped out as per the Deagle.com 2021 forecast for 2025. Deagle is no joke… our American equivalent of the British Jane’s Military. What they base this on they won’t say.

    Gates says Small Pox is coming and the FBIKGB is investigating 15 vials found in a Merck Pharmacy lab. WTF!? Not supposed to be outside of the CDC or Military Bio Labs… where it is kept under the highest security.

    The national stockpile of Small Pox vaccines will be given out to whom? Or will they just let the disease run its course killing 30 to 60% of Americans, if it’s Mother Nature’s variety… or if the Small Pox is the hybrid weaponized version… with a reported 99.9% fatality rate?

    Then, if the gubmint vaccinates, what will that vaccine contain? The same shytte in the covid vaccines for the survivors who flock to get the shots for Small Pox.

    Get Sarracenia Purpurea extract. Available on EBay… but I don’t know the purity of it or whether it is what they say it is… a natural cure for Small Pox from the way past.


    I advise all to stop fucking using adverb/adjectives/nouns like this ‘red pill’ shytte… communicate in English. I don’t respond to the abbreviations and this social crap talk.

    Not a turning. Zimmerman didn’t turn them, they have a taste for this. Rittenhouse shot up three anarchic Jews. Three murderous blacks partying in a riot would be a different story.

    Why is it evil men,,,,,evil women are allowed to share our world? Why are they tolerated?.

    Why is it evil breeds further evil?

    Why is it, that good and righteous is always an uphill battle.

    Why is the truth so hard to tell?

    Your Govt, is that evil in this world.


    • Dan Patterson November 22, 2021, 3:45 AM

      I appreciate your question and it is one I’ve sought to answer for decades; our current stew is not one of recent cooking. And the Casey summary is from his usual thoughtful but irritated space, one I share with him and I expect millions more do as well.
      But to your question:
      We tolerate evil because it requires violence to stop it, and our women find that distasteful. So to appease them and to continue to live in the light of their temporary approval we once-men mutter and pose, and brag and threaten. But not within earshot of the women whom we most fear. We live in a matriarchy and until that ends the violence, invasion, incivility, and evil will continue. The first one of you pussy-whipped assholes that disagrees proves the point.

      • Dirk November 22, 2021, 8:41 AM

        Ouch! I love hearing the truth.



    • Mike Austin November 22, 2021, 4:31 PM

      Dear Dirk:

      “Why is it evil men,,,,,evil women are allowed to share our world? Why are they tolerated?” Because Jesus said when He walked among us that this would be so. At the end of time the tares and the wheat, the sheep and the goats, will be separated for Eternity.

      “Why is it evil breeds further evil?” Because Evil is a spiritual cancer. It always—always—spreads unless it is stopped. A man who lusts after women will, unless confessed, will seduce many of them. When that sin loses its luster, he will look at porn. When that loses its luster, he will take his porn fantasies out upon real women. When that loses its luster, he will turn to rape and sexual violence of an extreme nature. Along the way he will lure many others into his sin. A man with unconfessed sin becomes the sin itself.

      “Why is it, that good and righteous is always an uphill battle.” Because sin is easy—at least at first. Being good and righteous is difficult, but let us put on our spiritual Nietzsche: “That which does not destroy me makes me stronger.” It is through fire that gold is tested; it is through tribulation that men are tested. Those uphill battles strengthens us for the Cross.

      “Why is the truth so hard to tell?” Because Truth has never been popular. Most people’s souls are not used to it. Think of a flabby man forced to run a marathon. Those who speak the Truth are at first laughed at, then found annoying, then threatened, then punished, then Crucified.

      “Your Govt, is that evil in this world.” Christ gave over the kingdoms of the world to Lucifer. All of them. Washington DC is what it is because it is the abode of demons. Listen to the media, and you can hear their laughter.

      • Terry November 23, 2021, 10:34 AM

        “Washington DC is what it is because it is the abode of demons. Listen to the media, and you can hear their laughter.”

        Well written and absolutely correct. Why do so many people not see this?

        • Mike Austin November 23, 2021, 10:59 AM

          Because sin is a spiritual blindness. As sin takes hold of the Soul, it eventually manifests itself upon the body. The eyes become used to darkness, and soon cannot bear the Light. Such a creature is like a man who paints every window in his room black, but then complains that he cannot see the sun.
