NSURGENCY 1-1.This is an organized movement aimed at the overthrow of a constituted government through use of subversion and armed conflict (JP 1-02). The key distinction between an insurgency and other movements is the decision to use violence to achieve political goals. An insurgency is typically an internal struggle within a state, not between states. It is normally a protracted political and military struggle designed to weaken the existing governments power, control, and legitimacy, while increasing the insurgencys power, control, and legitimacy. 1-2.The majority of insurgencies have been limited to local regions or specific countries. However, todays instant communications allow insurgent groups and leaders to communicate worldwide to find support for their cause, and to support causes they view as compatible with their own goals. External forces, including nation-states, may support an insurgency for their own benefit. They may also oppose a competing nation-state that supports the existing government. As a result, modern insurgencies can often cross multiple countries.
1-3.An insurgency is made up of components (the five insurgent elements, the eight dynamics, and one or more of the six insurgent strategies) and manifestations (tactics, strengths and vulnerabilities). (For a greater understanding of insurgencies, see Chapter 2.)
Here are the elements of the Auxiliary that Antifa is using: Store weapons and supplies. Perform courier operations. Provide passive intelligence collection. Give early warning of counterinsurgent movements. Acquire funds from lawful and unlawful sources. Provide forged or stolen documents. Promote and facilitate desertion of security forces. Recruit and screen new members. Create and spread propaganda.

“Here are the elements of the Auxiliary that Antifa is using:”
Note, I inserted “Antifa” in the text to indicate that their insurgency is nothing new and are classic tactics.
In order to defeat an enemy, you must first know who it is. Media has been involved in keeping the masses mesmerized on other issues. Every magician asks you to divert your attention to “the other hand”. Race relations, etc., are “the other hand”.
Has anyone seen this article about antifa?
An excellent anti-insurgency tactic is to seize the financial assets of the insurgents.
Trust-busting Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, Apple etal would devastate their cause.
And this too.

This is a communist insurrection.
Agreed. I hope Justice is looking hard at these companies. They hide behind the 1st Amendment, but are not subject to the same provisions as any other publishers of information.
Here is another article the fills in some of the holes:
When the left resorts to criminal acts they become a criminal conspiracy subject to all of the elements of RICO. All that is needed in a Justice Department that is not a Just Us Department.
I wish we could trust the FBI to infiltrate Antifa to take them down and not to help them out. I cannot infiltrate them; I’m very obviously as straight and conservative as they come. Perhaps there are decent Americans who have that skillset and can pass for socialist thugs or at least as yuppies who want a wild hobby for their time off.
Thanks for the link. I read every word.
You are quite welcome.
Possibly one may desire to save to computer and share with FRiends and/or loved ones. May be useful to them as well.
