Fourth Generation War Comes to a Theater Near You


Mobs loot, burn, and vandalize while politicians advocate defunding the police. A commune was established in Seattle and turned into Lord of the Flies while government did nothing. Blacks demand equal treatment from police despite a violent crime rate many times greater than that of whites, and mainstream media will not report honestly the differences in crime rates. “Wokeness” spreads among idle youth who flunked English 101. What is going on?

What is going on, right here on American soil, is war; a new kind of war that is also very old, waged by entities other than states. I call it Fourth Generation War and, to paraphrase Leon Trotsky, you may not be interested in Fourth Generation War—but it is interested in you.

 Here Are Hunter Biden's Alleged Text Messages Giuliani Just Turned Over to the Delaware State Police

Rudy Giuliani handed over "very, very sensitive" text messages to the Delaware State Police that are allegedly from Hunter Biden to his father, former Vice President Joe Biden. In the text messages, Hunter allegedly accused his sister-in-law and former lover, Hallie Biden, of telling Hunter's therapist that he was sleeping with a 14-year-old girl. 

The alleged text messages said:

Repost 2018: An Extraordinary Voice


 Extraordinary Voice

This is Elsie she is totally blind. She has never been to school, never learned English. (Maybe but most Filipinos speak English.) She listens to songs and learns the song. She has one of the most Amazing voices I have ever heard. She lives in a small fishing village in the Philippines.

Secession Becomes Thinkable


A review of American Secession: The Looming Threat of a National Breakup (Encounter Books, 2020) by F.H. Buckley

When asked whether a state can constitutionally secede from the United States, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia brushed the question aside, saying the matter was settled by the Civil War.

He was wrong. A Zogby poll in 2018 found that 39 percent of likely voters, including 42 percent of Democrats, believed that states have a right to secede, while 29 percent were not sure. That means 68 percent of voters were willing to consider what for Scalia was unthinkable. In recent years, some legal scholars also have come to realize they cannot let the Civil War define their thinking about secession.

One of these is Frank Buckley, a professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School. In his recent book he argues that America is coming apart. “Washington has become the seat of a sclerotic society of special interests, hobbling the rest of us with wealth-destroying rules,” he writes. “The extremism has gone mainstream, and the oracles of respectable liberalism now embrace the vilest left-wing extremists.”

Today, I officially consider myself done. Today is the last time I wear a badge and uniform to work after 9 years. I wish I could say it took a fancy job or a substantial pay raise to bring me to leave a career in law enforcement, but that simply isn’t the case. I’m done being randomly flipped off, cursed at, attacked, and hated based on what I wear to work. The tension is exhausting.

 I’m done being forced to watch lawlessness and savage behavior while it’s being normalized and used for political gain. I’m done dealing with the horrible things that take place every night while people go about their lives clueless and judging those who do face those evils. The willingness to serve the community like I once believed in is gone. The way society is becoming and the war on police make the sacrifice no longer worth it. Seeing parts of the city look like a third world country while excuses are made to normalize it just isn’t something I can maintain restraint and witness take place anymore, especially after the recent chaos. The fact cities and departments have to plan ahead knowing the normal behavior is to expect more lawlessness and riots regardless of the outcome of the election is something I’m no longer going to be a part of. It’d be a different story if these same cities allowed police officers to be police officers and maintain order. The physical restraint is gone after these last several months and I’m to the point I’m going to react, I’m not going to stand there another night shaking in frustration while I’m taunted, having things thrown at me, or attacked. 

A warranted reaction that almost anyone would have in a given situation isn’t something there is room for as an officer since we can’t rely on our localities or departments to back and support us. They’ve literally stripped police from having the ability to effectively do their jobs and maintain law and order. I struggle to understand how the masses find this safe for any American citizens. It’s made coming to work an uncomfortable and miserable feeling which is draining. It makes me feel like sacrificing my peace of mind to maintain peace for the community isn’t worth it anymore. I didn’t join to bring terrible shit home with me at the end of the night. I didn’t join to fight anyone or make everything a pissing match. I didn’t join to always feel tense and under attack. I didn’t join to babysit adults who don’t know how to act civilized. I didn’t join to be painted as the bad guy while we bend and cater to criminals with no sense of accountability. I damn sure didn’t join to lose myself and become syndical while dealing with all the worst things our world faces. I sacrificed time with loved ones, friends, a normal life, and my overall health.

I lost sleep over things that while encountering them, I related to in a way or was affected by. After 9 years of wearing a badge, I quit. I quit prioritizing the safety and needs of strangers in the community while sacrificing my own. I quit being a pawn to be put in the middle of current affairs and made out to be the enemy to the people I encounter and keep safe every night. I quit being away from my loved ones to be there for yours in time of need. Those who seem to be the most opinionated also seem to base opinions and actions on emotion rather than educating themselves with facts or having first hand experience. There is a lot of ignorance running through our communities and a major lack in accountability. However officers are being hung out to dry for doing their jobs. I’ve seen coworkers treated unfairly in the court system and internally in the department they work for purely to appease the citizens and make an unwarranted example of an officer. However there remains a level of expectation to be a police officer with your hands tied behind your back. It’s building hesitation and distrust, which is an even more unsafe dynamic. I’ve seen officers put out of work while acting in good faith and doing their best in a damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation.

Regardless of an individual’s feelings and beliefs, pushing hatred and acting aggressive towards another person without any cause other than their profession or race is wrong and common sense should tell us that. Common sense should also tell us that an asshole is an asshole and just because an encounter involves people of different races, doesn’t mean it was racially motivated. We should also take into account the differences between unfamiliarity, discomfort, or biases towards a person or group that someone may not understand or necessarily have a good memory of vs racism. You want to remove police, I’ll remove myself happily. An officer that’s volunteered with underprivileged youth, one who instead of issuing drug charges sought help and got placement in a halfway house program for strangers, one with good community relations and one as capable in any situation as any other officer. I will worry less, stress less, and cry less. I will sleep better, smile more, and feel better overall. I will be another civilian but I will always stand for what I believe in and I will stand behind those who continue to hold down our communities and keep this country in tact while it’s being ripped apart from all directions. I just won’t be representing a department or put in an impossible position that risks my life, my freedom, or my ability to provide for my family. Simply put, Ima do me and take my talents elsewhere ✌🏼

P.S if you think there aren’t officers trying and ready to leave law enforcement across the country, better think again. A lot of people are behind the scenes finding a way out while lowering their standards as to what it’d take to bring them to leave. Officers are beginning to hear from former co workers how much better they feel after getting out of law enforcement and can relate to the areas which are impacted and matter most to many. Officers are tired of being targeted and silenced while sacrificing more than most can imagine, including peace of mind which can’t be bought. They’re tired of their family life being affected or entirely stripped from them because of this job. Officers are congratulating those who do find their way out of the profession, that’s how unhealthy of an environment it is becoming. Keep pushing because I look forward to seeing people live better and feel better when they stop burdening themselves with everyone else’s bullshit and get on with their lives.

 I’ll hold my loved ones down and keep my household safe and then when shit hits the fan and there’s nobody to call or cry to, will you?

Here’s Why the Mayor of Moscow’s Wife Paid Hunter Biden $3.5 Million


According to US treasury documents provided by the Senate Finance and Homeland Security Committees, Hunter Biden was paid $3.5 million from the Mayor of Moscow’s wife.

The report by the Senate Finance and Homeland Security Committees was released last month and it was devastating.

Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Yelena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.

Until today we didn’t know why Yelena Baturina paid Hunter millions of dollars.

China “Pwns” Us: How the Chinese Are Buying Up America (Excellent)

We have now finally got our first post up on the Libertas Bella blog! To get us started, I felt like researching and writing about the fight against China and their Communist Influence in the United States. You can give it a look here

I learned A TON while doing research and writing this piece and it's my hope that you will as well :)

 Let me know what you think. Thanks! P.S. Also feel free to give me any comments/thoughts on the blog layout. It's taken me some time to get everything looking correct and I'd love to know if you have any other suggestions. 




 Chinese imports

The People’s Republic of China isn’t exactly a favorite of the American public. Since the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak of early 2020, Americans are questioning whether or not all of that cheap plastic junk from Wal-Mart doesn’t come with a hidden cost. It’s not just about the virus: There is also the spectre of deindustrialization, which has been a social disaster for the United States, particularly the rust belt. 

What’s more, Tucker Carlson and others reported during the early days of the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak that the United States was dependent on China for basic medical supplies, such as penicillin. 

Carlson’s comments are incredibly important, especially when we begin drilling down further into just how reliant the United States is on China: 97 percent of all antibiotics and 80 percent of all active ingredients in American pharmaceuticals come from China. In 2017 alone, the United States imported a whopping $4.6 billion in foodstuffs from the People’s Republic of China.

Resilient US Economy Has Overcome the COVID-19 Recession


Though the president and first lady weren’t able to dodge the COVID-19 bullet, the U.S. economy, we now know, has adapted remarkably well to the pandemic and social distancing. As a result, the worst of the COVID-19 recession is over.

Fear pushed public and even professional opinion to be bearish about the prospects of economic recovery. On both sides of the aisle, it became commonplace to assume that economic vitality depended largely on financial aid from Washington.

Therein lies a Catch-22 that’s keeping us from paying attention to the economy’s rebound. If markets and the economy recover or perform well, the conventional wisdom attributes this to government “stimulus.” If they stagnate or perform poorly, it’s attributed to Washington’s sloth and stinginess. In short, we’ve been too focused on vulnerability—and the perceived need for artificial stimulation—and not focused enough on resilience.

Massive V-Shaped Recovery Testament to Strength of Economy

Massive V-Shaped Recovery Testament to Strength of Economy | News Break

There is nothing normal about the 2020 recession. Massive nationwide shutdowns of "non-essential" businesses caused real GDP to drop at a 31.4% annual rate in the second quarter, the biggest drop since the 1930s. However, as we expected, a V-shaped recovery is being traced out.

On October 29th, in ten days, we expect a report that says third quarter real GDP rebounded at a 33.4% annual rate.

A Trump 'surprise' victory is in the offing -- here are the 10 tea leaves pointing to it

 Tom Del Beccaro: A Trump 'surprise' victory is in the offing -- here are  the 10 tea leaves pointing to it | Fox News

Just as in 2016, there are tea leaves, if you will, indicating that President Trump will win again

As November 3 approaches, many prognosticators are trying to convince Americans that former Vice President Joe Biden is a lock to win the presidency. Of course, they said the same about Hillary Clinton's chances in 2016 and it didn’t come to pass. Just as in 2016, there are tea leaves, if you will, indicating that President Trump will win again.
Here are ten of those tea leaves:
1. Pennsylvania Voter Registration

placeholderAmerican presidential elections are decided by the Electoral College as President Trump and Joe Biden both know. 

 In 2016, Pennsylvania and its 20 Electoral College votes were key to President Trump’s victory. He won Pennsylvania by a slim 44,292 votes out of nearly 6 million. That November, the Democrats had nearly a 900,000 voter registration advantage over the Republicans. That number is now down to a 700,000 registration advantage and has narrowed by 100,000 in the last year.
