DEFIANCE – There are More of Us Than Them…

In April something was bugging me… a familiarity amid the COVID lock-down status & another time… I couldn’t quite put my finger on it until a dear friend reminded me.

Many U.S. states are acting like the early 1980s and the imposition of Martial law in Poland to target the Solidarity movement.  Subsequently I wrote about it on a Twitter thread, because the parallels were really quite remarkable.

Both Poland circa 1980 and the U.S. friction in 2020, center around fragile economic issues. Both were an outcome of state control; and the key connection is government targeting control over the workers.

In both examples the state took exclusive control of the economic and social state of the citizens, and the courts provided no option for redress. In both examples the state locked down the citizens and would not permit them to interact with each other.

In 1981 the government in Poland initiated Martial Law and citizens were forced to communicate underground. In 2020 a considerable number of U.S. state governments locked-down citizens in similar fashion and banned citizen assembly.

In 1981 in Poland the communist regime used economic psychological pressure, selecting workers permitted to earn wages. Those workers identified as “essential” to the state. In 2020 many State governors selected workers to earn an income by designating them “essential” to the state.

In 1981 in Poland; communication amid the Solidarity Movement was forced underground. In 2020 many oppressive State governors demanded social media remove public content adverse to the interests of the Stay-at-Home confinement orders. Big Tech complied with the authoritarian dictate.

In 1981 Polish authorities arrested anyone organizing protests against the authoritarian state. In 2020 numerous authoritarian officials arrested citizens for non-compliance with unilateral dictates. From a New Jersey governor arresting a woman for organizing a protect; to an Idaho mother arrested for allowing her children to play at a park; to a Texas salon owner arrested for operating her business.

In 1981 Polish authorities had a program for citizens to report subversive activity against the state. Snitching. In 2020 New York City, LA and numerous state and local officials started programs for citizens to report non-compliant activity against the state. Similar snitching.

In both 1981 Poland and 2020 USA we also see media exclusively creating ideological content as propaganda for the interests of the authoritarian state (controlling citizens).

Interestingly, as we begin to see the American people saying “enough”, and openly defying the authoritarian state. There’s another parallel that is comparable, enlightening and quite remarkable.

Just before the authoritarian state in Poland collapsed there was a rapid movement for the citizens to take to the streets in defiance of state control. I remember watching with great enthusiasm as I saw a very determined Pole shout on television:

…”we take to the streets and today we realize, there are more of us than them”…

Fast forward more than thirty years later and those glorious voices are prescient. The power of the government comes from the people; or as we say in the U.S. “from the consent of the governed.” Thus the underlying principle behind our defiance.

If the people will lead, the politicians are forced to follow:

If one person refuses to comply, government can and as we have witnessed arrest them. However, if tens of thousands rebuke these unconstitutional decrees, there isn’t a damn thing government can do to stop it…. and they know it.

If one barber shop opens, the owner becomes a target.  However, if every barber shop and beauty salon in town opens… there is absolutely nothing the government can do about it.

If one restaurant and/or bar opens, the state can target the owner.  But if every bar and restaurant in town opens; and if everyone ignores  and dispatches the silly dictates of the local, regional or state officials… there isn’t a damned thing they can do about it.

The power of the local, regional or state authority comes from the expressed consent of the people.  As soon as the majority of people deny that consent, those officials and state authoritarians lose all of their power.  Yes, it really is that simple.

Go live your best life.

You’re worth it.

PS. Another similarity – ultimately the key control issue, the heart of the battle in Poland, came down to an election finally held in 1989.  Likewise the key control issue, the heart of battle in the United States will come down to an election in November 2020.

    Have you noticed the big difference in the COVID-19 lockdown protest signs/flags vs the historical protests of the Vietnam War, Civil Rights, and later BLM movements?

    American flags are being waved everywhere by lockdown protestors. I don’t recall seeing any American flags (unless they were upside down or being burned,) in any of the other historical protests.

    This is a refreshing show of patriotism that hasn’t been seen in America in years. (By protest groups, that is.)

      I live in Collin County and Abbot is his own worst enemy. He started out on a very good path of working issues county by county as most of Texas is actually still quite rural and there were allot of areas with very few if any serious case or even case of CV-19. He actually slapped around the like of Clay Jenkins of Dallas County, when the democrat dominated areas and the Texas Media cried boohoo, its not fair that we close down but nobody else is closed. Then he caved and the weak kneed Republican run counties caved with him. Now he has to fight the disaster mongers on a daily basis. It is quite pathetic as there were zero spikes in anything in January and February. The number being spouted in the media DO NOT represent any increases but just increase in sample sizes due to increase in number test kits, as the actual percentages have not increases.

        From what I understand, the state is in the process of trying to do blanket testing in the nursing homes/assisted living facilities, meat processing plants, and among healthcare workers. Those three targets are the ones identified as at risk. When viewed in a certain way, this is cherry-picking subjects that will make the numbers as bad as possible. It won’t be because opening up for business will make the state a death trap. It is that there will be better detection.

It’s the same drug touted by President Trump weeks earlier that has since then been attacked/vilified by the media and the medical establishment in America.
            Dr. Lozano knows how effective treating coronavirus patients with Hydroxychloroquine is because she’s been doing it and seeing the results first-hand as patients see their symptoms all but disappear within 24-hours.
            As the following video shows (please watch it in its entirety) she is increasingly frustrated over how aggressively medical regulators and politicians have been working to deny this treatment option.”

              Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott go back several years. Ted Cruz was Texas Solicitor General in the AG’s office while Abbott was the Texas AG. Rick Perry was about to term out as governor. Abbott was geared up to run for governor and Ted was going to run for Texas AG. Lo and behold, Perry’s lawyers decided that the Texas constitution did not explicitly impose term limits on the governor. TX governors termed out by long-held and respected tradition. Perry did not have a good enough landing spot, so he stayed on as governor. That stopped Abbott from his run for governor, so he ran for re-election as AG. Ted was not going to run against his boss, so he went home to Houston and joined a private law practice. In 2012, Ted ran for the US Senate and won by beating our (retired CIA operator) Lt Gov David Dewhurst in a primary runoff.

              At the 2016 Republican Party of Texas state convention (larger than the national RNC one), there was a movement to seat delegates who would force the RNC into a brokered convention situation. Texans were sick enough of life under Obama. “Texas Secede” swag was easy to find. Abbott and Dan Patrick smoothed feathers as tried to pull the party stalwarts together for bring on a Trump win at the RNC convention while honoring Ted Cruz. Remember that at the time, Trump was an unknown quantity and considered not serious.

              Abbott and Cruz will not turn their backs on each other, but neither one is a never Trumper – at least not now.

          Rite-aid in Ohio and some other states is now offering free tests. It’s called Project Baseline. You don’t need symptoms or a doctor’s note or anything. However they will be taking your name and address and sharing it with some company called Verily. At first I thought it was good that they were going to get statistics showing the true number of cases. That way, we could compare the number of deaths to the total cases. But of course, they will emphasize the “surge” in new cases, rather than what it reveals about the death rate. I think they also want to push the idea of asymptomatic carriers so they can force more of us to wear masks.

          For years and years, the Lt Gov of Texas was the more powerful of the two. That is because the Lt Gov presides over the Texas Senate. The Lt Gov is elected separately rather than as a running mate. However, that balance seems to have been shifting over the past several years.

          George Bush mostly was a figurehead and a resume-builder while governor. He did not rock any boats. Common wisdom around Austin at the time was that he could be found at the gym for two hours at noon everyday, not at lunch meetings. Rick Perry was his Lt Gov and did the work. After that, Rick Perry became governor and used his position and sales skills to get companies with good jobs to move to Texas, largely from California. Gregg Abbott was Texas AG under Perry. Abbott definitely is politically ambitious. He has a war chest and a machine.

    I was thinking earlier today that we are deeply divided, even analogous to the lead up to Civil War – a war of sovereignty as much as slavery.

    Now, different lines of division have been systematically and steadily driven into the fabric of our nation to serve the goals of global governance and central bank control. The urban and other high density blue zones are sapping the wealth of the free zones, while imposing central control via their grip on state government and federal policies/precedents. We are forced to accept massive dept and pay debilitating taxes which are funneled back to the blue regions, cities and organizations.

    Global Governance vs Sovereignty
    Tyranny vs Liberty
    Wall Street vs Main Street

      The divisions had started well before this plandemic, and the growth of the communist tyranny within the Dim leadership is beyond frightening. It’s not just politics. They used multiple means and weapons to break down our nation’s morality, tear down the institution of family, while raising an entire generation + of youth on leftist garbage within the schools and colleges. The manifestation of the end game is on now. Obama was the gentle deceiver, working as Satan does to cloud the vision and darken the soul, in preparation for the next phases. Hillary’s loss threw their plans into chaos. Their hatred of President Trump comes from his righteousness of purpose, and his willingness to expose their plots. This has accelerated their cause into hyperdrive. No more masks. The communism is wide open, yet the devoted embrace it like lemmings.

      If President a Trump does not expose It fully now, confront the evil completely, the follow up will lead to absolute civil war. States are choosing, people are learning. Leftists must be shown the raw truth. Understanding their leader’s brutal lawlessness can teach everyone valuable lessons. It could literally stop this diseased march toward communism, renew American ideals and restore our “United” States.

      Therefore, Mr. President, take it to the limit. Hold nothing back. Expose every dirty deed, every crooked politician in any party. Our nation can’t afford anything less at this precipice of history.

        I just want to reply to one of them, Hilary Clinton as the Dems choice for Pres in the 2016 election.

        My 86 year old mother was a die hard Democrat for over 60 years of her life.

        She finally registered as a Republican when the Democrats kept pushing Hilary Clinton as a candidate.

        My mother hated Hilary C with a passion and felt like her beloved Dem party had betrayed her for some reason that she could never explain to all of us.

        My Mom was an avid Dem party member and raised a LOT of money for the Dems when she was younger and had better health and more energy.

        Hilary Clinton was just too much to ask of her her and at the age of 81 she registered as a Republican.

        I have watched the Dem party make mistake after mistake after mistake lately and I do hope that as you say “States are choosing, people are learning”.

    As they behaved completely as would be expected from people anticipating world domination, obstructing so insanely, their over the top behavior could clearly only lead to this point where are now at…and to an even more heightened point the next 4 months just as Rush said last week.

    To oppress AMericans is akin to oppressing Christians…. In Christianity it is known over the centuries that with persecutiion comes a stronger faith…In Catholicism the term is”From the blood of the martyrs come the seeds of the faith”.

    And of course our beginning is the same. Those heroes, that tiny contingent of people who saw and pursued the unthinkable, created this, the greatest nation, with the history that they have TRIED to erase, but cannot.

    Because we have truth on our side and not only can truth not be buried, it also sets us free.

    • Amazing how plexiglass barriers appeared out of nowhere within a week or two if lock down. Almost as if it was stored in the back room of all the “essential” establishments ready to be installed upon receiving ‘the word’

      I have seen images of essential establishments e.g. pharmacies, post offices and the design is similar from NYC to Australia.

        They have a lot to hide and a lot to lose under Pres Trump’s continued Make & Keep America Great agenda.

        I can imagine how much China is screaming and ranting at the American politicians both Republican and Democrats that it has paid good money to keep things going their way.

        The pressure on these politicians must be intense and they will play very dirty up until November.

      President Trump said he was gearing up the military to distribute and administer vaccines.

      From the press release, they are describing a fairly typical tracking/inventory system with RFID TAGS on the packaging. Such systems typically have RFID tag readers in transport vehicles, and warehouse docks. The RFID readers provide tracking of inventory, combined with GPS systems to provide reatime inventory in transport vehicles and remote distribution centers.

      Such a system would be able to trace these vaccines from source to destination.

      It is my opinion FWIW, that President Trump knows the vaccine push is a wealth transfer scheme and took over the vaccine distribution for the Plandemic to limit the graft, corruption and phony billing that the Pharma/Healthcare cartel has planned.

  35. Solidarity is a great analogy, sundance. It is disappointing to learn that Lech Walesa was a snitch, but that’s just what happens in those situations. Look at how many American people and institutions have been similarly revealed by President Truth Serum. Even today, Poland has to maintain vigilance. So do we all

    A few similarities:

    We’re experiencing the Medical State. The Poles had Soviet psychiatry.

    They had State-Run Media where reporters were forced to lie. We have Deep State Media who are Volunteer Liars.. And they’re backed up by Volunteer Censors in the Big Tech Monopolies. It is a historical irony, but in many ways, the Soviet sphere had a more honest press than we do today in America.

    The guards finally got tired of defending something which they could no longer remember why they were guarding in the first place. For all the travail we’re still seeing, I think we’re winning. I think people’s eyes are opening and old assumptions are being discarded–even assumptions perhaps made unconsciously.

    As Jefferson put it, “All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view. The palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of God.”

    The Grace of God, indeed.

    Great post.

    I think, however, there is a salient difference that may explain why it worked at that point in Poland’s history but may not work (to the same extent and with similar success) in the US, at least at this stage.

    The Poles has been under the watchful and malevolent eye of their Soviet masters since 1945. Their “freedoms” were very few and all illusory if any of them ever ran afoul of the Soviet’s master plan.

    Throughout this period the people were ruled, not governed, and brutality was the order of the day for any who ran afoul of the UB/SB. This took the usual form we have grown so accustomed to (apparently to the point that with COMMUNIST China we just ignore all that unpleasantness) in watching totalitarian states maintain their control—surveillance, family members and neighbors reporting each other, “disappearings,” interrogations, torture, murders etc.

    As a consequence, the number of Poles acutely aware of the nefarious and internecine workings of and as such estranged from, their own government, and by extension their Soviet masters as a percentage of the total population was relatively high. This in turn facilitated the accumulation of the “critical mass” of the Polish population needed to effect the “revolution” that eventually freed Poland.

    Contrast this to the state of the present American society. As I continue to assert, a large percentage of Americans are incredibly self absorbed and abysmally ignorant as to most “current events” relating to the machinations of both our several levels of government (the most abstract likely being the federal government) and our polarized superheated political system.

    There are myriad reasons for this sad phenomenon—such as the dumbing down through our indoctrination system we call “education,” fierce competition for the attention of this slice of our population from various entertainment and advertising sources, loss of personal and civic virtue that in turn makes them easily distracted by the “pleasures of life” and less and less knowledgeable of and engaged in the matters relating to their government (again at all levels).

    When all this is added to their apparent low regard for (or even thought about) the many advantages and freedoms they enjoy (compared to those of citizens of any other nation), the crucial differences between them and the Poles becomes painfully clear.

    As I suggested above, these dynamics could very well change over time such that the percentage of Americans motivated to resist the increasingly draconian, and in many cases likely unconstitutional—either legally in terms of the letter of the Constitution or figuratively in terms of its “spirit,” authoritarian measures could increase over time as more and more of these currently disengaged Americans are personally and adversely affected, perhaps even to the point a “critical mass” like that which occurred in Poland is achieved. I just do not believe the country overall is anywhere near that point at present due to the increasing societal and civic deterioration that we have experienced in the last half century.

              Somehow a lot of sad sacks are ignoring or forgetting the 60 million people who voted for Donald Trump and what we had to go through in 2016 to get across that finish line.

              The supporters that were literally run down and beaten by thugs or roughed up while waiting in line for a rally.

              We were worried about putting TRUMP bumper stickers on our cars because our cars were vandalized and our TRUMP yard signs were stolen or torn down repeatedly.

              We couldn’t wear our TRUMP gear in public.

              We didn’t tell our families we were going to vote for him.

              We were ridiculed, vandalized, beaten and we still won.

              We did not go through all of that to give up and say “oh well we tried” now.

              Not a chance.
