Introduction: History informs us that scoundrels abound. Current events inform us that scoundrels currently control the GOP. What follows is an abridged version of a “communiqué” from the book Communiqués From the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy. This particular communiqué was first written circa 2012, and then updated in 2015. Thus, it predates – and so is a precursor to – the current endeavor of Breitbart’s Stephen K. Bannon to effect what would amount to “regime change” within the GOP – the goal of which is to electorally expel “Establishment ‘Republicans'” and elect genuinely Conservative ones. This is stated not to gloat, but to highlight that this is not a problem of recent origin, nor one that is diminishing. Quite the opposite. Mitch McConnell’s and Paul Ryan’s sabotage by inaction of the Trump agenda; and recent revelations that one former President Bush voted for Hillary Clinton, and the other withheld his vote from Donald Trump, should dispel any lingering doubts concerning “Establishment ‘Republicans'” being in-bed and under the covers with the Progressive Democrats – and so are actual enemies, not weak allies.
Mr. Bannon’s noble quest reminds this writer of the lead character (played by Mel Gibson) in the movie The Patriot – in the scene when during a battle going badly, he picked up our flag and charged the enemy – thereby inspiring the rag-tag group of average Americans to re-engage in battle. Not unlike the current Trump coalition being Tea Partiers re-engaging in battle. Ultimately the America revolutionaries won the war and attained liberty. Today we American counter-revolutionaries – countering the Progressives’ “fundamental transformation” revolution – are likewise called to re-engage in battle. This writer does not know if Mr. Bannon has ever read “Down with Vichy Republican Collaborators,” but is confident that if or when he does, as he reads his head will be nodding up and down as he says “yes, yes, YES!” This writer believes that you will too, and would love to hear from you after you’ve read it – contact info is at the end. Following this “Vichy” series will be a communiqué suggesting means by which we can accomplish that GOP “regime change” – The Seventy Percent Solution.
Down with Vichy Republican Collaborators!
Vive la Republican Résistance!
In Nazi occupied France a puppet government of “French” leaders was installed, serving as collaborators with the Nazis – it was called the “Vichy” government. Tellingly, two of its primary “French” leaders – Philippe Pétain and Pierre Laval – were tried for treason after the war. Laval was executed; Pétain’s death sentence was reduced to life in prison. Henceforth the word “Vichy” became synonymous with traitorous collaborators – those who to save their own skins, or in return for monetary or other earthly reward, betray their nation. (In WWII Norway experienced treasonous Nazi collaborators, and there is today a counterpart Norwegian phrase: Quislings.) America has not been untouched by treasonous collaborators: Benedict Arnold and Alger Hiss being but two notorious examples.
History and human nature inform us that, whether motivated by fear, self-preservation (life or career preservation) – or just plain greed – there are amongst us those who will sell-out their country. Such betrayal, such treason, need not occur only in war (Benedict Arnold), or working in favor of a foreign government (Alger Hiss) with “enemies foreign” – but also can occur with “enemies domestic.”
The most alarming single danger to the American political system lies in the fact that an identifiable team of Fabian operators is bent on controlling both our major political parties (under the sanction of such fatuous and unreasoned slogans as “national unity,” “middle-of-the-road,” “progressivism” and “bipartisanship”). – William F. Buckley (1955)
Which brings us to so-called “moderate Republicans” – those who tell us that the Republican Party must be pragmatic in a United States of changing demographics and a seeming “beyond the point of no return” advance of Progressivism’s social welfare programs – and so that we must accede to creeping (inherently un-American) Collectivism, our goal being merely to buffer its excesses. These “voices of moderation” echo their Vichy predecessors in Nazi-occupied France, preaching acquiescence in the face of what they have resigned themselves to being the overwhelmingly inevitable. Just as the freedom fighters of the French Resistance refused to heed that siren call of subservience, so too must today’s Conservative patriots.
9/11 signified America’s belated recognition that Islamic terrorism is not a mere criminal or police matter, and begat the “War on Terror.” Similarly, the election of Barack Hussein Obama is the catalyst for recognizing that “moderate Republicans” can no longer be considered a mere faction within a GOP “big tent” – as will be seen, we can no longer afford the luxury of permitting “moderates” to exercise influence within the GOP, much less steer it.
There is no need here to repeat a “bill of particulars” to indict Barack Hussein Obama as a closeted radical Collectivist – it is academic to debate whether he most closely adheres to the Communist, Socialist, Progressive or Fascist varieties of Collectivism. (This writer believes him to be an à la carte Collectivist, drawing from each of its varieties as he “divines” is most advantageous at that time and place to advance Collectivism, though ultimately he appears to be most steering us toward a form of globalist Fascism. That is, a trans-national governance structure of unelected / unaccountable entities – perhaps via the United Nations and/or trade agreements or treaties – whose dictates preempt national laws and sovereignty. The stated rationales will likely include “sustainability,” i.e., the “climate change” fraud as a pretense to impose trans-national diktats, and the “need” to “police” multi-national financial entities and other corporate interest. As corporatism and Fascism are essentially one in the same, those corporate interests will have as much, or more influence as before, and will be allowed to make money hand over fist, so long as they acquiesce to the agenda(s) of the governing elite, and share the wealth via campaign support and lobbying gigs.)
The bottom line is that Obama is an Alinskyite revolutionary, intent on “fundamentally transforming” the United States of America into a political and economic entity that would be unrecognizable to the Founding Fathers (indeed, that would be unrecognizable to anyone with even just a cursory understanding of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America).
