Fellow Members of the King George TEA Party:

Please pardon my negligence for not publishing a Newsletter for the past 2 weeks.  The weekend two weeks ago I spent in Norfolk, during those weeks we had some issues to work out with regards to a home project, and this weekend I celebrated with my wife our 30th wedding anniversary.  Today I am back in the saddle… this time with another monograph.

Since the 3 November 2020 general election loss (OK, it wasn’t a loss… it was a theft by fraud) the central question has been, “What are we doing to do?”  This question was brought up during our January meeting and we were unable to create a consensus about the direction we -as individuals or as we the TEA Party- should take.  Other patriot, TEA Party, and Conservative groups are similarly discussing this question.  We must first understand our environment we find ourselves in before we decide to take action within that environment.

Two years before I became the KGTP Chairman I ran a website that outlined the then-scenario we Conservatives experienced under the Obama administration. The website, dubbed The Office of Domestic Counter Subversion (TODCS, pronounced "Todd Sees”), featured a graphic that was central to understanding that information environment.  I have attached that unedited graphic at the bottom of this e-mail for your reference.

More than ever, analysis of the Subversion Operations Functional Decomposition graphic rings true today and its organization is supported by the plethora of news stories currently highlighted in the one year KGTP Newsletter archive we have online (See the
Newsletter tabs here).  In the first place, it is important to understand that we are not the victim of an Insurgency Operation because Violence Operations are the central driver of that type of effort.  From Joint Publication 3-24, Counterinsurgency, dated 5 October 2009,

  • “Insurgency is an internal threat that uses subversion and violence to reach political ends."

No, what we have experienced, and are currently experiencing, is a Subversion Operation because, for the most part, violence has played only a minor role in actual goal accomplishment.  Again, Joint Publication 3-24, Counterinsurgency, dated 5 October 2009,

  • “Subversion describes actions designed to undermine the military, economic, psychological, or political strength or morale of a governing authority."

Yes, there have been some Violence Operations elements that have been used as components of their Influence and Intimidation Operations (and thus, the broader Subversion Operation).  It can be argued that the violence we have seen recently are being used as forms of Physical Coercion and Terrorism Operations.  Specifically, the news reporting (and in some cases the associated censorship) presents us with excellent examples:

  • *  The killing of Ashli Babbitt during the 6 January 2021 rally at the Capitol
  • *  The BLM/ANTIFA violence over the past year
    *  The continued presence of military forces at the Capitol without defensible justification
    *  Politician's rhetoric of pursuing “extremists” and purging them from positions of authority

All reporting of the violence is meant to intimidate you, the Target Audience, and the media, the Democrat operatives, and the Biden administration are using threats to deliberately intimidate We The People into compliance.  However, the violence has not been the **central** component… and thus what we are experiencing is subversion, not insurgency.

Now that we understand that foundational element, the question comes back to, “What are we going to do?”  What can we do to counter the subversion we see in Washington, DC?  The bottom line is that there really are only a handful of categories that are on the table, namely:

  • Getting active in local government to ensure free and fair elections
  • *  Go through the training to be a vetted poll watcher and be a Poll Watcher during the next election
  • *  When you go to vote, report any activity you believe indicates a vote compromise (machine malfunction, etc.)

  • Getting active in political efforts to ensure worthy candidates are elected to represent our nation, our state, and our county
  • *  Volunteer to be part of a candidate’s “door knocker” or "telephone contact” effort
  • *  Donate to the political candidate of your choice; donate your money, your time, or your expertise

  • Getting active in your personal networks and local communities to influence the opinions of voters
  • *  Use bumper stickers, yard signs, T-shirts, and bulletin boards to share influential mottos
  • *  Engage your family members, friends, and co-workers to see the value of traditional, conservative, and Constitutional choices

Working to ensure free and fair elections would come under the rubric of counter-Political Corruption Operations.  Working to marginalize pro-abortion, pro-transgender, and pro-illegal immigrant online blog comments would come under the rubric of counter-Social Corruption Operations.  Working to defeat unworthy political candidates would come under the rubric of counter-Deception Operations.  Working to disseminate truthful information to all of your family, friends, and acquaintances would come under the rubric of counter-Propaganda Operations.  These are just a few examples; there are many, MANY more.  The central tenet is to delegitimize anyone -especially politicians- associated with corruption, anti-American activities, or socially deviant values.

But THE most important thing you can do is to perform counter-Intimidation Operations on a daily basis.  When reading the news, do NOT give in to the Emotional Coercion intimidation efforts the “main stream” media disseminate.  Be an informed, but objective, reader.  When thinking about either speaking out in a public forum or thinking about purchasing a firearm, do NOT give in to the Legal Coercion intimidation efforts that may array against you.  Stand your ground as you exercise your First Amendment and Second Amendment rights.  When purchasing a product, do NOT give in to the Financial Coercion intimidation efforts supported by our globalist politicians.  Purchase products with the Made In The USA label and do what you can to avoid anything made in China.

As always, I welcome any questions or comments you may have.
