Beware the Fear Mongers

Fear itself may not be - like in Roosevelt's words - all we have to fear, but it sure ranks pretty high up the list. The fear mongers are out in such force that I felt I had to share this with you.

It is a vital part of the enemy's strategy to dishearten us with a barrage of fake news and fake polling.

Some of the purported conservative pundits also contribute to the current climate. They thrive on our fear.

This is the exact playbook Ds have to use, in absence of any real winning plans for the country, or any real leadership.

I don't mean to say that there are no reasons for fear. There are plenty.

And I also don't mean to say that we should be fearless. Fear can be a good ally, and in any case is an inevitable human condition.

But there is all the more reason for hope.

To begin with, there's no doubt that historically, statistically, the incumbent POTUS has a much, much greater chance of reelection that his opponent. That is beyond dispute.

Of course, all the pandemonium created around us is meant to disturb this natural state of things, but you should not forget who Donald Trump is and what he is capable of.

If we take a look at the numbers inside the Q community, we inevitably find that there is an ever increasing following that have reportedly been ranking in the tens of millions ever since 2018.

The same apply, of course, to the more general field of Trump supporters.

The false narrative is meant to get people to jump into the "bandwagon effect", where people tend to mistake the prevailing narrative (falsely presented as the majority thinking) as the true narrative - because 'if most feel this way, it must be true'.

So, the lie would become true, in a self-fulfilling prophecy process.

But the question is: how much swaying power does the press still have? It is very little - and diminishing - or we would not be here having this conversation, and Ds would be lifetime dictators.

It's important for us to make the distinction: the election is to be won in the voting booths, not in the press. We will always 'be losing' in this traitor's press.

There is a true spirit of liberty that runs across the American Republic. It shines, and is visible from miles and miles away, as I am living proof.

We must nurture this spirit, trust in it, trust each other, and fight, fight, fight.

In a similarly dark hour, British PM Sir Winston Churchill had this glorious insight: apparent defeat is not final. Our capacity of endurance must never be underestimated.

Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end.

We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be.

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender (…)

Note how the succession of places in this historical speech suggests Winston is talking about troops having to fall back after defeats, from the beaches and landing grounds to the cities, to the hills… It's important to remember that the mere threat of German invasion was quite enough to put most of the UK establishment in the mood for capitulation.

But not the people.

I call upon all patriots of the world to unite in breaking the chains of fear and to fight as one to bring the darkness into the light. God bless you all.
