Pikeville This Weekend

As June closes in, we at 12 Round Productions are in the final stages of edits for Lies of Omission, bringing together music, sound and B-roll to meet the deadline. The deadline is NOT June 1st, it is IN June, that timeframe has not changed.

But, aside from publicity and the like, I have seen my role diminish to the point that I can do something else with my time, which brings me to Pikeville, KY this weekend. In the post I wrote a few weeks ago, here, I mentioned that I thought this was necessary. It will be an important skirmish in the war on the First Amendment. These Antifa(s) are outright Communists and are dedicated to the disruption and disintegration of the United States as a republic. It can be summarized as nothing less and it is up to us, to show that we are not afraid of them and are, in fact, anxious to engage them, because we know that they are paid-for muscle and anti-American agitators.

America may no longer be what it once was, or, at least, what I thought it was, but no matter how it is politically diminished, it is still full of Americans who hold the principles it claimed to promote close to their heart and at the forefront of their minds. This is a war on the street-level between those soldiers who are willing to place themselves in danger to stand up for the principles of liberty and the globalist-collectivist left.

Those gathering in Pikeville, KY do not all have the same ideology, or the same perspectives, they might even be at each other's throats in a normal context, but when it comes to the defense of our individual rights, they align close enough to center to be effective.

This is not a fight that we have chosen, this is a fight that Antifa wanted, that they planned in order to disrupt an annual gathering of the Traditional Workers Party, something I probably would not normally support, but in this context, when Antifa has targeted them for a beat down, I will be there. I am traveling a great distance to be there, because I believe in, whenever possible, backing up my rhetoric with action. I will also be there with a camera to document this for the film. To show those who view our work an illustration of all of the dangers of continuing to ignore the issues before us today.

So, whoever might read these words and think of participating in this event, look for me and if you can, help me get some footage. At least, should the worst happen to me, take the card out of the camera and secret it away before it is destroyed or confiscated.

As some of you know, Kentucky is my ancestral homeland, so I do not feel as if I am intervening in a fight that does not concern me. My family held land in and around the Georgetown/Frankfurt area on Miller's Run where it flows into Elkhorn Creek. I have a copy of a deed dated 1787. I am proud of my Kentucky heritage and that is what I am going to defend this weekend.

Who Will Make The Call?

There are bigger things to think about than Lies of Omission, though strategically it makes a great deal of sense, especially in these times while the Marxists are exposing their aims and tactics and they are being met with less and less support. The American public is being treated to a good dose of anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-white, anti-family and anti-law behavior from those high up in government circles. They are in open revolt against these values and more and more Americans are recognizing that those who are supposed to be upholding the law are more and more frequently defying the law. The message of "obey the law while opposing the law" is being lost and all the better.

As I have often pointed out, this is a war. It might be a soft war, a cold war, but there are battles being waged, skirmishes at least and the fruits of the Marxist message are pulsing through the Antifa  crowds. They have identified the enemy as the "white guy" an easy target, who they can label with all sorts of evil intent, whether true, or not, but it is a premature action in which they are engaged. Average Joe does not want to fight with Antifa anymore than they want to fight on our side, the side of the republic. They don't want to fight at all, for anything or anyone.  "Fight, fight, fight" is a sports cheer, not a philosophy.

But, I don't want to focus on anything as casual as Antifa, they are just the goons hired to incite riots, but it is interesting to note that the feds were observing these actions at the Berkeley protest unbeknownst to the mayor or the police chief. The police have sanctioned this sort of violence against patriots. We have seen it before and it is now out in the open. A cop turns his back just when it looks like a Marxist thug will do damage to a "patriot" and I use that term loosely in this context. An average Trump supporter is not necessarily a patriot. But, it extends past Trump. As I have tried to explain before Trump is a symbol, a totem for all of us, white, Christian, heterosexual, conservative believers in individual rights. They see us and they point at him. They hate him as a means of hating us. The fact that Trump neither speaks for us nor does he have the same principles or ideals is irrelevant. We are operating in the world of symbols, something a Marxist understands a heck of a lot better than those of us who consider each person an individual instead of a representative of a larger group.

This is the essential battleground. The Marxists only see us in the collective sense. We are at a bit of a disadvantage, because we do not see them in the collective sense, but in the individual sense. I don't hate anyone as a representative of a group like they do. I might hate a Marxist, but it is much harder to come up with hate for an individual until I am convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are indeed a Marxist instead of just a useful idiot. Pity is all I have for a useful idiot. That doesn't mean that I don't recognize that the useful idiots will have to pay the biggest price for being either useful or an idiot.

I explained to our Music Director Rob Wallace that we are a nation in transition from a democratic republic to a soviet police state. I don't know Rob's politics. Having been in the film industry for most of his life, a lot of it in LA, I assume that he is not friendly with everything he is seeing on the screen of Lies of Omission  as he sets it to music and corrects the flaws in the sound, but he is smart and he is polite. His take will be interesting when he has a chance to view it as a whole. But, this nation is in transition. It is obvious that short of a nuclear holocaust there will be no outright day of reckoning here in the US. We are not even able to heap the sort of scorn and derision on the Clinton cabal who ensured that North Korea would be able to place this nation in the danger that it is today. And, this is only a preview of what we will be dealing with in a few years when Iran perfects their delivery system. Nuclear war, at this point, is almost a given and it is due solely to our own politicians.

I have watched several milestones pass by that should have caused a counter-revolution against the forces of Marxism that have marched through our institutions until we are discussing whether we can talk about this aspect of our lives, or not, this idea or not, whether or not we are able to make a simple observation or not. These are things that should not even rise to the level of consciousness where individual rights are placed in primacy. All the while North Korea and Iran plot our demise with weapons we have provided. Who will call for the rope for those who are responsible for the deaths of millions?

A Man In The Clouds

I visited with a friend today, George, at the Sangre de Cristo Sentinel, named after the Mountain Range, but nonetheless translates as the "Blood of Christ." And, we had the typical, yet completely engaging sort of conversations I tend to have with folks in the "doer" column. If, by the way, you have not heard the story of George and his huge "open carry" 4th of July contingent in the annual Westcliffe, CO parade, you should look into it and take out a subscription to his local paper in the right side bar, because it has plenty to entertain a national audience. Have you ever seen a weekly community newspaper with a Second Amendment section and a weekly column by a local pastor? The Sangre de Cristo Sentinel has them both.

George Gramlich is hated by his liberal, i.e. Marxist competition and none of the local Marxists will advertise in his paper, but he has found like minds in the rural parts of the county and a few more in the neighboring counties, so he is making a success of the paper, but a little help never hurts.

Anyway, that was all preamble to the main gist of the conversation, during which we delved into the topic of Marxism, the futility of the Constitution in the hands of men devoid of character and where the subject of faith was brought up as wholly necessary for a government such as this to work. Okay, I know this has been gone over a few times, but bear with me.

A little later on, I was listening to Glenn Beck, for whom I have lost a lot of respect, but it's better than NPR on a long drive to get more B-roll for Lies of Omission, though it is nearly complete, at least in the roughcut sense, so we will be looking for screening locations in the near future. I don't have a fundrazr campaign running right now, but when I do it will be at https://fundrazr.com/liesofomission3 I need to put together another trailer over the weekend.

Okay, getting back to it, I was listening to the squishy Glenn Beck and he had a guest on, a former KGB agent who lived in the US during the '70s as an atheist and a spy named Jack Barsky, who has a book out. He was talking about how he was a rabid atheist and could not be a conservative and a communist, so he cloaked himself as a liberal. Right there, it tells you a lot about the liberal mindset, if you didn't already know, which, if you are reading this, I suspect you do.

They got around to talking about his life as a spy in the United States. He talked about the loneliness and how he had a relationship with a woman who was a Christian, who persisted in her testimony and he had met Christians whom he had grown to like, so he indulged her here and there, but could not get over the idea that he was trained as a chemist and believing in some fantasy man in the clouds just wasn't working for him. And then, she asked him to listen to a favorite and famous preacher who approached Christianity in a way Barsky could handle.

Where these two instances today line up is that both George and myself and Beck and Barsky arrived pretty much at the same place. There is no morality without God. Barsky claimed to think of himself as a generally "good" person as an atheist (and yes, I know Atheists read this blog and will be fruitful in the comment section. I can handle it) but, when he looked at his life he had done some very bad things, hurtful things to people, but was still able to carry that generally "good" moniker, but came to realize that one might be "good" as an Atheist, but without any sort of dedication to being good. They just sort of wander around and try to be good as a choice between that and being "bad," but it is a sort of personal choice, not a requirement, or a duty the way it is with Christians. But, this is his story, not so much my own. And I know the Atheists who read this blog are "good" people, that is not the issue. The issue is that the government does not function without God. The Constitution relies on such things as oaths and integrity and it works so long as those things mean something to the people who write the laws, but, and this was all I was trying to get at:

Where God is not present, one is capable of being a Marxist, because it is all about the allegiance to the state, or in this case, the government and there is no sense of what one is doing is wrong, if it benefits the government, whereas a Christian might be instructed to do something that goes against their faith and will refuse.

Yes, one might be an Atheist and still be a great patriot to the cause. I am not challenging that. But, a betrayal would simply be a betrayal to an idea, or a piece of paper, or a cause, it is not a betrayal to one's God like it is to a Christian. The point being, that in a government where people are sworn to uphold the Constitution, if they don't believe in God, there is no punishment for violating their oath. Is there?

This is the point Barsky was making, that he could only be a Communist while he was an Atheist, but when he became a Christian, he could no longer be a Communist. It didn't mean he had to be a federalist type of republican/capitalist, but he could not be a Communist. While he was wavering he began to read about Lenin, thinking that it would give him power against Christianity and therefore embolden his Communism, but when he read the truth about Lenin from Western sources he was appalled at what he discovered and the whole ruse of his life began to crash down around him.

So, the really interesting part of this whole discussion was that he had, at one time, believed that Christians were ignorant and foolish to believe in some man in the clouds, but eventually came to see that he had been doing the same with Lenin and was just as ignorant and foolish as he once believed Christians to be. Now, if you are a Christian, you see the hand of God in that. I did.
