FEATURE # 1
The first feature, “How to Prepare for a Communist Coup” by Judith Acosta for American Thinker (July 25, 2020) gets right to the point.
Whether or not one thinks this is the year of America’s radical shift to Marxism via the likes of Antifa, BLM (Note: BLM’s founders describe themselves as “trained Marxists”) by means of a violent coup, it is clear we are not in Kansas anymore.
Nor are we in safety, with many Democrat leaders across the nation supporting the criminal activities in their cities and states and ordering local police to stand down and let the burning, vandalism, looting, and physical assaults against both police and anyone opposing their ideology, continue.
Also note: the riots referenced above are completely separate from the legal, peaceful, Constitutionally-protected citizen protests. The criminals have arguably high-jacked the legal protests for their stated Marxist purposes.-PBN
How to Prepare for a Communist Coup
by Judith Acosta
Even as I write the title for this article, I wonder: Is that in fact possible? Can we be prepared for a hostile takeover?
The other day I was speaking with a friend about the ongoing insanity in some of our greatest cities: Seattle, Boston, NYC. We bemoaned the reappearance of the “democratic socialist” in the United States. It seemed incomprehensible to us—and horrifying, like a slow-growing metastasis or an insidious dementia. I wondered how we could prepare ourselves for the eventuality of a horde of lunatics reaching our otherwise peaceful community or worse—occupying the White House.
With years of experience as a doctor of pharmacy in critical incident work, including 9/11, she was the right person to ask. I also knew that her understanding of these things had been shaped by having had a father who risked his life in the Dutch Resistance, survived and escaped three concentration camps, and lived to be liberated from Nazi Europe. He was a complex man with a two-sided nature: aloof and critical but also a hero, having sacrificed a good part of his health and emotional well-being in order to save Jews and Christians he didn’t even know.
I asked her a simple question: if you had a time machine and wanted to warn your father, or the Jews or Ukrainians in the late ’20s and early ’30s, what would you tell them? continue reading…

Here is anothere timely discussion along the same lines in case the reader has not yet heard of the Bolshevik Revolution, FEMA camps, and how many of the Jews survived and/or escaped in Hitler’s concentration camps. It may help bring you up to speed while offering historical perspective.
That said, this is not going to be a very pleasant read for all who believe everything is going to go back to normal and/or for those who think all the current bloody protests across the U.S. are “peaceful”.
But knowledge is power–and a key part of preparation for anything that might ensue.
You be the judge.

Knowledge may be power, but the Holy Spirit, aka, “the spirit of counsel and might” Who leads, directs, and guides believers regarding how to use knowledge most effectively, is far greater–and far more powerful no matter what the deception, danger, and/or damage.
After all, man’s wits alone have never been enough to be able to stop the repeated attempts by all the power-mongering tyrants that have trampled throughout history leaving destruction in their bloody wake. As a race, we haven’t seemed to learn much by that same history.
And it is often the rage (so much a marker of tyrannical revolutions), ginned up by those who know how to use it effectively, that obscures those lessons–with a little help from the power of the pen (and telecommunications and social media, these days) to propagandize the unsuspecting.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.” (NIV)
