The POTUS goes asymmetrical in the game of political chess!
But, but that’s not fair!
4th Generation Warfare applies in politics too.
Hat Tip to the good Dr. “L” for the heads up!
Imagine a world were shadowy cyber warriors sit behind the reinforced walls of SCIFs and practice their black arts. Now imagine this being played out all over the world.
Most reasonably technological nations have developed some sort of defensive cyber protections and well as some offensive capabilities.
Folks a whole lot smarter than me are starting to wonder if we are seeing the first suppressed shots in the ultimate 4GW battle space.
One has to wonder what there is to gain by such actions and are they acting on behalf of a nation state?
Or it all could just be coincidence…
The world has “moved on” as Roland the Gunslinger says in The Dark Tower series. It is very different than the one of my childhood in the 1970s. Brother Elmore has written a timely piece concerning the real issue of feral youths running amok in our somewhat ordered society.
Children are not always what they seem.
It ain’t Leave It to Beaver any more.
Words of Wisdom from Brother Phil Elmore.
Very topical in light of recent events.
As a man once said, “If you go looking for trouble you will usually find it, in spades!”
OSINT is rumbling of possible sportiness on 4 Nov 17. The JL will be watching this closely.
Think “Days of Rage” 21st century style.
Factor this into your AO awareness and govern yourselves accordingly.
Stay. Frosty. Always.
The Jolly Landsknecht is back!
Due to several serious health issues, the JL himself had to go to ground to address, but he is back and feisty as ever!
Thank you very much for your patience.
Now to business:
Brother Matt Bracken has released his new book “The Red Cliffs of Zerhourn” and it is a pip!
First a little history.
In 1631 the Irish village of Baltimore was attacked by a band of Barbary pirates specifically from Ottoman Algeria and the Republic of Salé slavers. Jan Janszoon van Haarlem, the notorious Dutch Barbary pirate, led a force to attack this small Irish costal village. A local fisherman by the name of John Hackett led the force of slavers to the town after being captured himself by Janszoon. In exchange for this skullduggery he was promised his freedom.
On the night of the 20th of June, the group of blackguards crept into the village and kidnapped somewhere around 200 of the English speaking townsfolk.
All but three of these villagers lived the rest of their lives as slaves in North Africa, never again to set foot on the green ground of the Emerald Isle.
As for Hackett, his freedom was short lived. When his treachery was discovered, he was hung off a high cliff and left to die.
Fast forward to the near future.
A global collapse of the world economy has left many nations, including Ireland, unable to field an effective coastal guard. This allowed modern day North African slavers the opportunity to raid an exclusive girl’s school in Ireland and make off with serval hundred potential sex slaves.
Parents of the girls hire an aging former SAS officer and an IRA man to bring their daughters home and to make the pirates pay in blood.
Dan Kilmer, the hero from the book “Castigo Kay”, is caught up in the operation.
Brother Bracken was kind enough to let me see some of the novel before it was released and I found myself reading late into the night. It is that good.
I will not give any more of the book away.
But, if you want a candid glimpse into the near future taking into account the fragility of our global economy and the rise of Muslim fanaticism in Europe and North Africa this is a book for you. It is a tale of flawed men of action, each honorable in his own way, in a savage time grasping at one last chance of redemption. All the while, hundreds of young lives hang in the balance.
Between you and me, we need more men like that…
A very good analysis of our economy and how the progressive political class have, and will continue, to fall victim to their out of touch normality bias.
The simmering resentment of the fly over proles has not been dampened by the election of 2016 and I do not see this changing in the near future. In spite of the false narrative of our economic “recovery” touted by the last administration, many, many common folk are still hurting.
As for the Jolly Landknecht, here is my plan:
Get yourself out of debt
Get to know your neighbors
Develop small, tight social constructs that can weather difficulties
Get out of your bubble and confront your own Information Bias
Think and act locally
Spend your money on experiences not useless things
Love yourself, family, friends and be happy.
Riddle me this:
What it Steve Bannon on orders of the POTUS is fanning the flames of the extreme left. The UC Berkeley riot of a few nights ago is an example. The violent elements of the left acts in their predictable manner with arson, property damage and serious assaults. This is permitted for a few months and as these rioters feel more emboldened more damage is done and we see a few deaths and very serious injuries. The public opinion shifts with help from the alt.right PSYOPS wizards and the POTUS issues a E.O. declaring these groups domestic terrorists, we are already hearing rumbles of this being done with the Muslim Brotherhood. Then imagine Nacht und Nebel and the Hammer of Thor combined and released on the ring leaders who have already been identified and targeted through HUMINT, COMINT, ELINT and all the other esoteric arts. Next a RICO case is brought and the arrests start climbing up the food chain as the money trail is followed. Look at the whole exercise through the lens of “Strategy of Tension” as we discussed here. It is how I would do it, but what do I know…
Some things to read to help with your conclusion:

I cannot really add a whole lot to this excellent assessment from the folks at Status 451. This dovetails very well with our last post. The 1970s is a good template and model for the next four years. Watch for the indicators and buckle your seatbelts.
Read. It. All.
