If you have read my new book Shadowland, you know that headlines this week like Protesters topple Jefferson Davis statue in Virginia capital and Republican senators DEFY Donald Trump by voting to strip Confederate generals’ names from Army bases – despite White House threatening a veto are simply the first salvos in a prescient malaise outlined in that investigative book.

And a telling salvo at that.


Because it exposes the surface of a deeper undercurrent to where all this is leading.

An article at WND this week expounds: “After morphing into splinter groups, the protest of the death of George Floyd in police custody has become ‘wholistic,’ entering a new stage accentuating the ongoing clash between the values of two different historic revolutions, the American of 1776 and the French of 1789, observed scholar Victor Davis Hanson… a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, [who] said in an interview with Eric Metaxas he’s seeing characteristics of the French Revolution’s Jacobin dictatorship, known for its ‘reign of terror.’”[i]

Students of history have often looked with interest at the French Revolution and what dynamics caused it to result in the Year One horror of death and torture under Robespierre compared to the Revolutionary War in America that resulted in unprecedented freedoms and monetary success. While citizens in this country rejoiced in newfound liberty, in Paris, more than 20,000 people were beheaded in the guillotines (something famous Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress told Lou Dobbs is going to happen again, and this time in America from “the Left” who are going to “bring out the guillotines” if President Donald Trump loses re-election). The years following in France were marked by a reign of terror leading up to Orwellian totalitarianism and Napoleon (whose name actually means Apollo incarnate, the same spirit that will inhabit Antichrist, according to the book of Revelation). Why were the American and French Revolutions followed by such contrasting conclusions? The difference was that the American Revolution was fought on Christian principles of liberty, while the French Revolution–like many of the statue-smashing leftists and neo-fascist agitators reflect currently–was anti-God. The forces behind the French Revolution were out to eliminate people of faith as the enemies of France and to shut the mouths of God-fearing dissenters. They even placed a nude statue of a woman on the altar in the church at Notre Dame and proclaimed the God of Christianity dead. Soon thereafter, the French government collapsed (by the way, this is why I placed a so-called “Easter egg” reference on the cover of my book Blood on the Altar—a book about the coming genocide of true Christianity—in the form of a gargoyle from the Church of Notre Dame, a silent gesture nobody seemed to catch).

And make no mistake about this, either. Many of the people involved in such revolutions as the French one—like those occultists in Washington DC investigated in Shadowland—are aware their politics can be assisted or “energized” by powerful supernaturalism, which they seek to make covenants with and that, under the right circumstances, can take on social vivacity of its own (see Ephesians 6:12).

For instance, concerning the French Revolution specifically, some scholars note how practitioners of occultism comingled with evil nonhuman energies that emanated from their actions, symbols, and incantations and that, once summoned, were released upon a gullible society to encourage a destructive collective group mind. As people passed these “thoughtforms” or memes from one to another and the ideas became viral, the power and reach of “the entity” spread with it until it became an unimaginably destructive force. Writing about dark supernatural involvement in the French Revolution, Gary Lachman makes an extraordinary and important observation about such immaterial destructive forces—which had unseen plans of their own—released as a result of occult politics:

Cazotte himself was aware of the dangerous energies unleashed by the Revolution.… Although Cazotte didn’t use the term, he would no doubt have agreed that, whatever started it, the Revolution soon took on a life of its own, coming under the power of an egregore, Greek for “watcher,” a kind of immaterial entity that is created by and presides over a human activity or collective. According to the anonymous author of the fascinating Meditations on the Tarot, there are no “good” egregores, only “negative” ones.… True or not, egregores can nevertheless be “engendered by the collective will and imagination of nations.” As Joscelyn Godwin points out, “an egregore is augmented by human belief, ritual and especially by sacrifice. If it is sufficiently nourished by such energies, the egregore can take on a life of its own and appear to be an independent, personal divinity, with a limited power on behalf of its devotees and an unlimited appetite for their future devotion.” If, as some esotericists believe, human conflicts are the result of spiritual forces for spiritual ends, and these forces are not all “good,” then collective catastrophes like the French Revolution take on a different significance.[i]



Fast forward to today, and anyone who thinks the eradication of public knowledge about the role that God played in American history and even our Civil War is divorced from supernaturalism or will stop with a few monuments being pulled down is in for a history lesson of their own.

As Michelle Malkin pointed out this week: “Across our looted plain, statues are under siege. Smashed. Spray-painted. Shrouded. Expunged. In the name of social justice, we are witnessing the systematic eradication of history. Edifice vigilantes will not rest until all monuments of Western civilization fall.” [ii]

Tré Goins-Phillips clarifies even further:

The progressive secular left has abandoned all pretense, promising to cancel any company, brand, or person who doesn’t fall in line with their predetermined, singular ways of fighting injustice. And it has nothing to do with actually taking tangible steps to stop instances like the unjust killings of George Floyd or Ahmaud Arbery. Rather, it has everything to do with remolding and fundamentally transforming our culture into a postmodern, post-Christian society[iii] [emphasis added].


In Shadowland I describe George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984” and the fictional setting of Oceania as depicted having four “Ministries” under the figurehead of Big Brother–Love, Peace, Plenty and Truth.

The Ministry of Peace actually perpetuated unending wars; the Ministry of Love oversaw suffering and torture against those that would not adhere to the Party line; the Ministry of Plenty weaponized starvation through socialism; and then there was the Ministry of Truth–the propaganda arm of the government media that machinated fake-news “Doublethink” and “Newspeak” as the official dialectic of the state.

Newspeak is the term Orwell invented for controlled language: restricted grammar and limited vocabulary as “a linguistic design meant to limit the freedom of thought–personal identity, self-expression, free will–that ideologically threatens the régime of Big Brother and the Party, who thus criminalized such concepts as “thoughtcrime” contradictions of the English Socialist Party orthodoxy (INGSOC).

Today, in America, the nonfiction version of the Ministry of Truth has materialized and is fully operational through the Orwellian tools of modern Marxists and social media manipulators including CNN, Google and similar organizations who blacklist Christian and conservative commentary by burying search results and exhibiting bias in their artificial intelligence shadow-banning algorithms and reporting. I—and my news conglomerate SkyWatch TV and Defender Publishing—are often victims of this crime.

This activity has also directly contributed to moral decline across the United States. As U.S. Attorney General William Barr told a University of Notre Dame Law School audience late in 2019, attacks on freedom of expression and on religious liberty have resulted in the moral decline that has contributed in part to increases in polarization and suicides, mental illness, drug addiction and the chaos we are witnessing on the streets today. Worse, Barr said the attack on religious liberty and freedom of unapproved speech is not random but “organized destruction” by “Secularists and their allies [who] have marshaled all the forces of mass communication, popular culture, the entertainment industry, and academia in an unremitting assault on religion and traditional values.”[iv]

But declining values and loss of hope among citizens is largely collateral damage. The end-game is actually the overthrow of the Trump administration and anybody who supports him, according to Google insider turned whistleblower Zachary Vorhies.

“I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company and I realized that they were going to not only tamper with the elections, but use that tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States,” he stated in a recent public interview.[v]

Google has warned Vorhies to stop talking[vi] and we pray for his safety. Meanwhile, the monster monopoly and social media business continues thumbing its nose at antitrust laws by assisting deep-state subversives and “state-owned” media bullhorns like CNN and MSNBC to actively engage in political vendettas in hopes of overturning the non-establishment’s president and the people’s 2016 election choices.

But don’t take my word for it.

Rich Higgins, former staff member of the White House National Security Council, confirms: “The Trump administration is suffering under withering information campaigns designed to first undermine, then delegitimize and ultimately remove the president.”

While these studious observations by Higgins are correct, it didn’t stop Gen. H.R. McMaster (Obama Shadowland enforcer) from firing Higgins for unveiling what is going on.[vii]

As an Army veteran and former Pentagon specialist in Irregular Warfare (IW)[viii] at the Department of Defense, Higgins knows what he is talking about when he warns (in a seven-page memorandum, the so-called “Memo that Rocked Washington” that wound up on Donald’s Trump’s desk) that both Democrats and fake Republicans are currently using Orwell’s imagined tactics in a real-life effort to bring down the 45th president: “This is not politics as usual but rather political warfare at an unprecedented level that is openly engaged in the direct targeting of a seated president through manipulation of the news cycle,” Higgins went on to say.[ix]

Among the IW instruments employed by Big Brother’s modern Ministry of Truth reflected in Higgins’ memo is the kind of brainwashing devices (Doublethink and Newspeak) that the book “1984” portrayed as also producing the type of cognitive dissonance among citizens that I wrote about here involving Obama’s community agitation wing Organizing for Action (OFA)–with its 250 offices nationwide and liberal billionaire George Soros’ new $80 million anti-Trump network (which I detail in the books “Saboteurs” and “Shadowland”)–are producing in US neighborhoods today.

Regarding the OFA’s current efforts, I warned:

Young liberal activists, like Manchurian candidates, have been activated to oppose the Trump administration at every turn—immigration reform, Obamacare replacement, border security, and more. They are also aided in that effort by the Obama Foundation, whose IRS-approved mission is supposed to be for funding and operating a library to house the former president’s official papers for posterity, much like other presidents have done.

But Obama is taking his foundation down “the same controversial—and, by some accounts, illegal—post-presidency path of his predecessor Bill Clinton, according to documents reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.[x] The foundation’s language that caught the eye of Caller’s investigators involves not just the building and maintaining of a library, but the diversion of funds for “activities reflecting President Obama’s values and priorities throughout his career in public service.”

In other words, the nonprofit foundation serves whatever Obama needs to shadow obstruct, resist, and subvert the policies and directives of the Trump administration.

And make no mistake, Obama has made this personal. He himself is overseeing the blitzkrieg. The former president has swiftly returned to his early station as a radical Saul Alinsky-style agitation organizer.

Alinsky, the 1960s radical who wrote Rules for Radicals, and by whom Obama and Hillary Clinton were guided, once said, “In the beginning, the organizers first job is to create the issues or problems. Creating the problems allows people to feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future.”[xi] This is the playbook the Obama team is using today to create the appearance of “issues and problems” and a general sense of desperation among Millennials so that people will “feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless” that they turn to them for solutions.

According to Alinsky biographer Sanford Horwitt, Obama and his presidential campaign and polity were so guided by this kind of Alinsky-based radicalism that Obama chose to follow in his footsteps as a Chicago-based community organizer. For three years during the 1980s, “Obama worked for the Developing Communities Project, which was influenced by Alinsky’s work, and he [Obama] wrote an essay that was collected in a book memorializing Alinsky”[xii] (Of course, Alinsky dedicated his work to “Lucifer,” the original radical and inspiration for those who follow his example).[xiii]

This is why, at Organizing for Action, it is Obama himself who “is intimately involved in OFA operations and even tweets from the group’s account,” writes Paul Sperry for the New York Post.

In fact, he gave marching orders to OFA foot soldiers following Trump’s upset victory [and is] overseeing it all from a shadow White House located within two miles of Trump. It features a mansion, which he’s fortifying with construction of a tall brick perimeter, and a nearby taxpayer-funded office with his own chief of staff and press secretary. Michelle Obama will also open an office there, along with the Obama Foundation.[xiv]

Valerie Jarrett, former senior advisor and close confidante of Obama, has also moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million nerve-center mansion to assist Obama in organizing the mounting insurgency against Trump’s stated objectives regarding Reagan-like economic policies, government deregulation, and middle-class jobs programs. According to Washington insiders, Obama’s goal in this is straightforward—to fuel the “resistance” that will force Trump’s resignation or see him impeached. Investigative reporter Matthew Vadum said it this way:

Former President Obama is waging war against the Trump administration through his generously funded agitation outfit, Organizing for Action, to defend his monumentally destructive record of failure and violent polarization. It is a chilling reminder that the increasingly aggressive, in-your-face Left in this country is on the march.[xv]

In 2019, the Obamas worked with Netflix to continue efforts at rehabilitating their failed policies and to further denigrate Trump in the public mind by releasing a propaganda film titled “American Factory,” which attempts to downplay the return of manufacturing jobs (hundreds of thousands of them) generated the first three years of Trump’s administration. These jobs are the ones president Obama famously said in June 2016 “are just not going to come back.” Now that they and much more did, notwithstanding the recent downturn brought on by Covid-19, Obama has been faced with the need for a new tactic, and the hope was the Netflix film—intentionally released ahead of the 2020 election—was but one of many efforts that can diminish Trump policy successes by insinuating in this film’s case that Chinese investors will use these jobs to enslave American workers.

Good luck with that.

Thus, like Orwell’s 1984 masterpiece, Shadowland funding of Doublethink and the media’s Newspeak have been especially deployed to create “chaos memes” among the public so that peer pressure and people’s natural desire to “fit in” can be used against them to generate groupthink talking points while toppling statues, attitudes and hive-mind conformities Big Brother requires.

Undeniably, this echoes what psychologists call the “illusion of truth” phenomenon (verified through clinical studies as highly effective), which basically means if you repeat a lie enough times people will eventually believe it. “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth,” is a principle of indoctrination attributed to Nazi politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda under Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbels. CNN and the “impeach Trump” crowd understand the effectiveness of this dark practice and have deployed it unrelentingly since 2016.

There is an occult aspect to all this too (whether or not the propagandists realize they are thus functioning as fleshy gloves of invisible supernaturalism) involving misinformation memes and chaos magic, which we detail thoroughly in Shadowland.

As also detailed in Shadowland, even some “Christians” are buying into the lies, with churches organizing Summer Camps to teach grade school kids how to become Obama and Antifa activists[xvi] and even the largest Protestant denomination in North America, the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), officially adopting racial identity politics that strikes at Christianity itself[xvii] not to mention outright calls for Trump’s removal from office by Christianity Today Magazine.[xviii] Along the way, if a free-thinking individual or company of citizens recognize or mention any weakness in the philosophy or contradictions in the Party’s line, it is “akin to blasphemy” and subjects those persons “to disciplinary action and to the instant social disapproval of fellow Party Members.”[xix]

In other words, Shadowland foresaw exactly the kind of political rhetoric we hear on nightly news and in the contagious attempts at castigating opinion and free speech being generated today throughout the government’s left, across college campuses, and in major cities of the United States.

And if we so correctly predicted the current street anarchy as but hoofbeats of the real riders of the storm, do you not owe it to yourself to read Shadowland and grasp the significance of the “French Revolution fervor” coming next?
