Bracken: What I Saw At The Coup
Vanity ^ | September 18, 2012 | Tim Ziegler

Posted on 09/18/2012 3:27:29 PM PDT by The Shrew

Matt Bracken is a friend of mine. He is a former Navy SEAL, author, entrepreneur, sailor, and a very bright man. The insight he provides in his articles and in the pieces I have linked to below are not conventional or politically correct. Matt writes and speaks with the forthrightness of a man who is unwilling to risk his teammates, friends or his country because he was too afraid to ask the right question.

Asking the right question is often the difference between a successful mission or a disaster of strategic magnitude. Matt knows this and he is well aware of the consequences of his questioning. He has been personally insulted, slandered, libeled and will continue to be derided as a fear monger, racist and worse. He is nothing of the kind. He is an intelligent and capable man who sees situations as they are and not as he would wish them to be. He asks the right questions.

Asking the right question and demanding the right answer is what our journalists are supposed to be doing. However, the media has decided that they know better than we the people and so in their learned ways they are going to foist - as they did in 2006 and 2008 - their preferred candidates upon us. Their agenda, via the poison of political correctness, prevents our politicians, writers and thinkers from even asking the right questions. Their agenda to "Afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted" has morphed into an agenda that is an adjunct to the Democrat National Committee.

Bloggers, journalists, and writers like Matt Bracken are heroes to me. I've been blessed to know several of them. They ask tough questions and infer logical consequences to actions based upon their knowledge of human nature and common sense. I would strongly encourage you to read the links below and consider what these articles conclude about our country and the direction it is headed - than act accordingly.

Below is an article from "Small Wars Journal". SMJ is an unofficial US Army think tank. The article is an analysis of what the US Army would do in response to a hypothetical conflict with the "Tea Party". If you read Matt's articles without understanding that these two recent articles are in RESPONSE to a battle scenario postulated by a former Army Colonel and a Civil War Historian paid by the US Government you might miss the impact of his hypothesis.

Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland

This is Matt's response to the above article:

Matt Bracken: When The Music Stops

Here is Matt's additional hypothetical result of the above article:

Matt Bracken: What I saw at the coup

This is Matt's discussion on an internet forum that demonstrates the weakness of Islam if we were to consider the religion itself as our enemy.

It is a very thoughtful piece.

Enjoy having your mind streched!

After having watched our own Travis McGee/Matt Bracken be castigated in the press that has blindly stumbled across his articles I thought I should stand up and attest to the contextof his articles. Enjoy!

That is a good point, if we declared war on Islam, there would be no real problems militarily. By killing every muslim, the Nicholas Bergs, Libyan Ambassadors, the 911s, et al would stop happening.

Seriously, when was the last sucessful Muslim military operation that didnt involve cowardly acts of terror? Saladin?

That Matt has the kind of insight he has into the left is just amazing, really. It’s very difficult to have a handle on if you haven’t actually seen it. I have, having been inside these circles as a teenager. The completely unscrupulous murderousness is spot on, and it was the same thing back in 1968.

My “cell” was a crazy marxist/leninist mix. I didn’t really like to get too close, the kadres were heavy drinkers apart from the mental stuff. And you didn’t get to the top without vomiting all over the place. So it was paranoia (has anoyne seen that strange car parked for six hours), drunken stupor, dreams of killing this or that, and the odd rape when the inner circle got some stupid woman paralyzed with booze and ideology.

Observing occupy and the others, it’s amazing how much things stay the same. Anyway, that cell’s organization was central and very well known. Today. that organization has top politicians and influence agents all over.

Last year, our own Homeland Security issued a imaginary scenario where TEA PARTY members took over a South Carolina town and detailed what the US Military response would be to what they announced was a genuine threat to America in the future.

Well, soemone else who was military wrote this piece out. This time, it takes into account actual historical violence our nation has endured, and where it came from, and how it could unfold given a scenario of lack of food in urban areas.

his essay seems precient:

Sounds familiar.

"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout,I chose my friends carefully.The more politically active black students.The foreign students.The Chicanos.The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets.At night,in the dorms,we discussed neocolonialism,Franz Fanon,Eurocentrism,and patriarchy.When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake,we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling constraints." - Barack Hussein Obama

This fictional story, “What I Saw At The Coup,” should be widely distributed and read. It should “go viral” immediately. I have read much of Matt Bracken's published writings. Make no mistake, he will be remembered as a great General in the potential CWII, and this story, just as many of his writings, is actually a strategic (and tactical) field manual regarding what to do in the effort to resist all-out tyranny. Sic Semper Tyrannis! We are more than 200 Millions in number, we demand and require liberty, and we shall prevail. Mr. Bracken is a true patriot and he is compelled into making his stand now. He deserves more than our support: he deserves for us to stand with him. I am so very unworthy, but so very honored to stand with Matt Bracken!

Matt is doing as much teaching and preparing as he is story telling here...just like he does in EFAD. Best of bothe worlds.

God bless ‘im. The knowledge may save many lives one day and stop the spread of anarchy and mayhem, and combat to a stand still tyranny.

Thanks for the thread, my friends, and thank you Matt!

Well, I read the first piece by the Army PhD and the woman PhD and what the hell--Tea Party?

Matt sees clearly the likelihood of the urban intersection feeding ground as a good killing ground to restore order.

In his second vision he's matched Bill Ayers' 1971 prediciton 25 million would have to be eliminated for resisting the revolution.

It's vital to recall Ayers in Caracas in 2006 toasting Chavez, "Viva la revolucion bolivariana! Hasta la victoria siempre!" just like a little Castro or Che.

And do recall Hussein in Kenya in 2006 with bullhorn extolling Raila Odinga the muslim candidate whose followers rioted following their electoral defeat burning a hundred thousand out of their homes, murdering a thousand including Christians burned alive in their church.

We have a Russian sub run by Iran in the mix today.

The Arab Spring accompanies the arming of the various Federal agencies.

Hussein called for a national security force.

NSA builds a million-square-foot data store in Utah.

Mexican gangs are armed and immunized.

IRGC meets with Chavez' forces in Bolivia as China hovers in the region.

The economic destabilization of September 2008 may replicate any day and on a far weaker substrate.

We’re very hollowed out. Look at our top generals actively getting behind the pro-homosexual military.

Every day when I wake up, I am waiting to hear that missiles are flying around the ME, and an American warship is in flames.

Or that Europe is haveing an “emergency,” and the banks are not opening, and the NY stock exchange will not open on time.

Or a Japanese warship has been torpedoed in the South China Sea.

And it’s game on.

This may be the last “normal” election in our lifetimes.

We cannot forget that both India and Pakistan "tested" and announced their nuclear capability during Clinton's administration because the Indian's didn't trust Clinton to protect them in the event of a Chinese or Pakistani war. Pakistan didn't trust Clinton to be an honest broker of the India-Paki conflict so it to had to detonate to prove their capability. America's perceived weakness raised the stakes of regional nuclear war.

The same is true in our current situation. If the World's Policeman (Pax Americana) can't be trusted well then the gang members of the other countries have to be shown how tough the resident gang is. It is an escalation based upon weakness - both real and imagined.

There are any number of scenarios that can be conjured up to describe what will happen if....

The problem is the unpredictability of the current American Regime. We don't even know if Obama has assured Israel he will support a strike on Iran and not actively oppose it.

Remember the USS Liberty? What happens if Obama tells the Admiral of the USS Stennis to actively oppose an Israeli AF incursion over Iraqi or NATO Ally Turkish Airspace? Legal order? Illegal order? Could that order be issued? Do you think Colonel Benson would think it a legal order? How Many - if any - Flag officers would resign in the event of such an order?

Were that scenario to come about do you think the Stennis Battlegroup would still be afloat four hours later? Do you think American popular opinion would demand nuclear retaliation against Israel for such an act? Each of us can posit a similarly frightening devolution of the world situation. Game on. I hope some active-duty people are contemplating this because I think Col. Benson's scenario is pretty frickin benign compared to mine or the one Matt posits above.

Semper Fi,

My friend's brother, who lives in Alaska, is encouraging her to seriously do what she can NOW to become self-sufficient in all ways asap. He told her yesterday that he believes our country will implode....by end of next year. She knows I read a lot and called me tonight to ask what I thought and suggestions of what to do.

I told her I agree with her brother, there's a high possibility we'll see a Mad Max situation by year end 2013....and if not by then, conceivably shortly thereafter. We just cannot continue going as we have been without an implosion.

For ten years I have been asking friends and family what they think the mother's of America thought in 1858. Do you think they envisioned 725,000 dead seven years later? I think Ayer's was prescient when he said it would take 25,000,000 deaths to bring about the change the progressive left wanted. But, then being a leftist he forgot "The Law of Unintended Consequences" so, the number is probably closer to 75,000,000.

In the mean time, in the China Sea, reports late today placed two of the new Type 54A Guided missile frigates of the PLAN 150 km off the Daioyu Islands with JMSDF frigates or destroyers also in the vicinity. If the Japanese announce an exclusion zone around the islands, then watch out.
