Know Your Enemy, Know Yourself

In The Art of War by Sun Tzu, states the following, ” If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Conservatives in our country should heed this quote because we are not winning much lately. The reason? We don’t know our enemy nor ourselves.

How do I know this? I know it because every time we think the Lefties can’t be more irrational, can’t cross a another moral line, they do. And we are surprised. Worse, the Republican leaders seem not to notice.

All you have to do is look at recent history. Conservatives thought that Lefties couldn’t possibly cheat and steal an election and get away with it. They did. We thought they couldn’t possibly go after a President leaving office, they did. We didn’t think the current administration would actively create and sign executive orders that would ruin our country. They did.

When we think that we share any kind of moral code with Leftists, they show us that we don’t. Like when they rescinded Trump’s order to deport illegal aliens who have sex offenses or are pedophiles. Or when Biden signed an Executive Order allowing biological men to not only invade the privacy of the women’s locker rooms and restrooms, but also to unfairly compete against women and girls in sports. We didn’t know the monsters they really were.

It’s frustrating to watch Conservatives fall into the trap of not knowing the Leftist Democrats over and over, particularly in the House and the Senate. For having worked with these people for so long, you would think they would finally see who they really are. Yet time after time, we see Mitch McConnell and the Republican lawmakers try to make nice with them, compromise, work together. They have no idea who the enemy is.

If you want to know who the “enemy” is politically, all you need to do is look at Tammy Duckworth, Democrat Senator from Illinois and Mazie Hirono Democrat Senator from Hawaii. These two women are stone cold, KKK type racists. How do I know? Because they told the White House the other day that they will vote against ANY white nominee for the cabinet from this point forward. Oh, and they may vote against anyone who is not diverse in color AND sexual preference. They aren’t working with their own President, much less Republicans.

Not that I care if Joe Biden gets his nominees approved, I don’t. Everyone he nominates is a leftist Socialist who will run that Cabinet Department and this country into ruin. But we need a Republican Senator to come out with many Senators behind him/her and call these two scumbags what they are, racist jerks. They need to point out that for them to do this is against the Civil Rights Law and it is illegal. They need to call for these two to be censored, removed and possibly arrested.

If the shoe was on the other foot, that is what the Democrats would do. In fact, they tried to get rid of Senator and Representatives merely for supporting President Trump. Pelosi, who railed about the sanctity of the election, is not trying to steal an election from the Republicans.

You see, Democrats will lie, name call, falsely accuse, and even kill to get their way. They don’t even mind if they betray our country. It means nothing to them. And they will stick together while they do it.

I know what you are saying. You are saying that you don’t want Republicans to be like Leftist Democrats. That’s like Eisenhower saying they didn’t want to kill German soldiers because they didn’t want to be like the Germans who killed American soldiers. That was war and our guys were going to have to kill their guys. We made the difference clear between us and them in other ways, by following the Geneva convention, etc. But we still killed their soldiers.

Now, if you think the Republicans are always squeaky clean politically, you know that many are not. Like someone said to me this morning, anyone who came into Congress not a millionaire and left as a multimillionaire, is dirty somehow. And, so many of them are compromised. But right now, we have some more pressing issues with Leftist Democrats. Look at this list of recent Leftist actions:

  • Promoted and permitted the legality of late term, even up to birth, abortions.
  • Canceled human trafficking task force allowing the Cartels and others to resume operations
  • Allowed a surge of illegals to cross the border with thousands of unaccompanied minors
  • Created a voting system allowing anyone to vote in national elections even if they are not citizens or legal to do so. Also want mail in elections with no vote certification or validation process.
  • Voted to Violate the Constitutional rights of legal gun owners and advocated for police to enter homes unconstitutionally.
  • Violated the Constitutional right to free speech.
  • Violated the Civil Rights Law by demanding race and gender based cabinet nominees.
  • Discriminated against military members based on religion and political beliefs.
  • Violated the 4th Amendment rights citizens
  • Violated the 5th Amendment rights of citizens
  • Unconstitutionally persecuted individuals without due process.
  • Gave money, housing, and education to illegal aliens while homeless vets and other homeless suffer on the streets.

I could go on with the list of their destructive ideas and fraudulent actions.

The Republicans need to do some serious soul searching in order to participate in this fight. They need to look in the mirror and see that they can’t be the polite, fight by the rules, stuffed shirts they have been in the past. They need to take a page from Donald Trump’s book and roll up their sleeves, take off the kid gloves and do some street fighting.

I don’t mean violating the law. I mean AGGRESSIVELY using the law against the leftists at every opporunity. Again, they need to get up to the podium, call Senators Duckworth and Hirono out for being racist and sexist and then call for their censure and impeachment. If possible, call for their indictment for violating Civil Rights laws.

Drag Pelosi through the legal mud by pointing out her “treason” for questioning and possibly overturning the Iowa Congressional Record. File charges through the candidate who may lose her seat.

Call for charges against the Biden campaign and the Democrat party for fraudulently hiding the mental and physical capacity of Joe Biden. Call for every one of his Executive Orders to be overturned because he was incapacitated when he signed them.

Aggressively question the eligibility of Harris to be Vice President, much less President. Use lawyers to promote the case. Again, use the rules against them.

Even if none of it works, they will have presented the idea and put it in the minds of the people.

Is there any hope that the Republicans can change how they operate and successfully fight this onslaught of destructive actions? Am I asking for the impossible? Maybe. Will any of them step forward? I think there are some who can. Rand Paul, stands out as one. Maybe Ted Cruz. The point is, the old guard can’t keep leading the toothless charge. We need animals with sharp teeth who are willing to be the predators and not the prey.

Back to Sun Tzu, “Security against defeat implies defensive tactics; ability to defeat the enemy means taking the offensive.”

Take the offensive Conservatives. Our country, our lives, our rights, are at stake.
