Conservative Americans are not happy. The Presidency of the United States was stolen in plain sight from their rightfully elected candidate, Donald Trump, and now they have to face at least four years of being ruled over by a usurper installed by billionaire oligarchs. They will experience death by a thousand cuts as the oligarchs eliminate every possible avenue for a candidate who fights for them to ever be elected again. In such a scenario, entering a state of despondency would seem reasonable, but there is no need—Joe Biden as President is actually a time to gird your loins and prepare for a long war. Here are five consolations from the inauguration of Joe Biden…

1. Joe Biden blocks you from attempting to outsource your masculine responsibilities to a strongman

Would I rather have Trump as President? Yes, because I’m lazy and weak and don’t want to do any of the hard work of building a worthy nation for my family and tribe. I rather spend the days consuming funny memes, perfecting my homemade pizza recipe, pursuing more artistic writing projects in peace, and generally embarking on a life of comfort where everything is given to me by kind and honest authority figures instead of having to be bludgeoned by the human zombies enlisted by the prince of darkness. I don’t mind doing my part once every four years when I take an hour or two out of my day to vote for the strongman who is going to do all the dirty work on my behalf. I prefer my entire commitment to creating the nation I want to pushing a button at the voting booth.

Donald Trump promoted sloth in American men, because they could sit on their couches and consume untold hours of entertainment, pornography, and political news while rooting for their guy to say mean words to the CNN reporters all while neglecting their community and personal responsibilities. They didn’t have to prepare their families for hard times, they didn’t have to organize with trusted men in their neighborhood, they didn’t have to participate in local politics to thwart the leftist march through the institutions, and they surely didn’t have to put their necks out by speaking out against powerful forces when the consequence could be losing their jobs. Instead, they could pour all their hopes and dreams into Donald Trump to do what they should have been doing every day. If all you’re willing to do to create a good nation is vote for a strongman, you don’t deserve a strong nation. You must be the leader that you believe is what this country needs.

Donald Trump allowed me, at least for the first two years of his presidency, to live a life of pleasure in Poland by fornicating and publishing sexual filth. Even after I repented, I never took the state of the world seriously enough to make the necessary changes required for protecting myself and my family. It’s as if I believed I could remain a nomadic writer for the rest of my days instead of creating a fortified home base where I could concentrate my strength alongside local allies.

If you are strong, you do not want a strongman to lead you, because you know his strength will eventually tyrannize you. If you are weak, you look to the strongman to do what you should be doing as a man. For four years, Donald Trump enabled our weakness because we expected from him what we should have been doing the entire time he was President. Now that the oligarchs are firmly in control, how will you respond? Will you think it’s merely sufficient to buy a gun or two for when a militarized SWAT team arrives at your door or will you cement local relations that can be leveraged into power that resists state and corporate oppression?

2. He destroyed the lies that we couldn’t let go

Most of your world view may have been based on the truth, but there are some stubborn lies you held on to. You may have believed that the President of the United States is like a king who could remake the nation in his own image, that he didn’t need 1,000 loyal statesmen to help usher in his policies, as if you could cut off the head of a snake and simply put on a new head that would seamlessly control the body. You may have believed that your vote counts, that you could enter the voting booth, select the lesser of two evils, and that vote would be registered on a government roll somewhere, and that the real corruption was not in the counting of votes but in more esoteric matters like campaign finance or broken promises. You may have genuinely believed that the United States is a “democracy” based on the “Constitution,” but the farce of usurper Biden being installed before a lawn of Chinese-made flags while 25,000 soldiers in camouflage stand beside their concrete barriers should rid you of that notion. You may also have underestimated the power of the oligarchy, the network of billionaires and their old family banking backers who operate as one cohesive unit to exert control over you, first through persuasion and influence, and when that no longer works, through sheer might alone. I’m sure you can now feel their boot on your face. It was always there, but the material on the sole was a luxurious felt instead of the stiff rubber it has transformed into. I think it’s going to leave a mark.

As a man who has upstanding dealings with the people I know, I want to believe that humans are not inherently evil, and when their dangerous ideology or program of control is met with the reality that it will destroy lives, they will change their minds and instead pursue a path of peace, but events of the past year have shown me that if you choose not to live in Jesus Christ, vocally and deliberately, you will in time become like the demons that you are wittingly but most commonly unwittingly in communion with. Without being able to logically explain why, you will accelerate your demands for policies that promote chaos, suffering, and death, and even believe you are a “good” person for doing so.

Thanks to Joe Biden, I have had to accept that the left wants me dead, not in the figurative sense that I have encountered in memes, but in quite the literal sense that if the new President proclaimed that he would pardon anyone who comes to my house and murders me, I would have to immediately make final calls to those I love since my remaining time here would be measured in hours, and while I don’t think Biden will actually make a proclamation that assassinating conservatives is guaranteed to be pardoned (though he may come close), it shouldn’t be hard for you to imagine that all the George Soros-installed Attorney Generals in the largest cities in the country will be reluctant to pursue criminals who attack any one of the millions of people who are currently being slandered as “domestic terrorists” and “right-wing extremists.”

The nakedness of reality has been laid before us. Satan enlists souls for his cause to assail those who are serving God, whether directly against soldiers of Christ or indirectly against those who speak the truth, because all truth comes from God. Initially, the most severe persecution will be against agnostics and lukewarm Christians who find it difficult to tell a lie while working in positions that aid the oligarchical system of finance, commerce, propaganda, and technology. Quick work will be made of them. As those souls are crushed and put into the grinder of hopelessness and pharmaceutical powder, Satan will concentrate his swollen human army on the most devout Christians, the remnant, and it’s in the approach to this attack that the true nature of the world, one of spiritual battle between the seen and unseen, will make a trifling mockery of our two-month agitation concerning how the election was stolen from Donald Trump. Our knowledge and recollection of the twists and turns of the daily news cycle won’t help us when it’s time to wrestle with the demons ourselves.

3. He helped reveal the QAnon fraud

QAnon is a government or deep state psyop that was modeled on the Soviet Union’s Operation Trust. In that scheme, the Bolsheviks controlled an opposition movement with genuine opposition leaders who had already submitted to the communists in secret. These fake leaders gave aid to local resistance cells with the goal of identifying the active opposition to then delay or obstruct any plans they had for attacking communists.

“Operation Trust” was a Bolshevik counterintelligence operation run from 1921 to 1926 aimed at neutralizing opposition by creating the false impression that a powerful group of military leaders had organized to stop the communists’ takeover.

QAnon is essentially the digital version of Operation Trust. An alleged insider who is on our side has been sharing privileged, sensitive government information through coded messages that convince millions of conservative Americans to stand down, do nothing, and “trust the plan.” Q was the perfect operation for the type of conservative who wanted their leader to do all the hard work so they could read astrological messages on the internet while in a persistent state of comfort. Anything that leads to your inaction—whether a strongman who is on “your side” or an elaborately designed digital operation that accomplishes the same—should be viewed as a scam.

When you consider that Q did not promote the plan of Jesus Christ but the plan of feeble human powers, it’s obvious to see that it was another one of Satan’s tricks to get people trusting in man instead of the God-man. It promoted passivity, community neglect, ignorance, and false hope, all while blurring the line between truth and fiction. Conservatives have been so deceived by the QAnon operation that once I saw on Twitter its adherents counting the number of claps Donald Trump made during a rally in the hope of finding a secret code.

Unfortunately, the Q fraud will not go away with Biden. For the next four years, we have to hear them proclaim that Trump is assembling his legion right outside Washington DC and will take back control in spectacular fashion. It will happen any day now, just you see. And of course all the “sealed indictments” are for Democratic members of Congress, multiple Hollywood celebrities have already been arrested, and on and on it will go.

4. He pushes us into serving our ordained mission

Holy New Martyrs of Optina

No more sneak previews. You’ve already used the bathroom and gathered all of your popcorn and sugary snacks. The movie you paid to see has begun. The time for action is now and our duty before God should be more clear than ever. Whoever you made yourself up to be before this moment is what you must use to begin the rest of a life that will be far more difficult than before. Either you put away childish and trivial things or you perish.

When times are comfortable, it’s easy to dabble in various lifestyles and useless hobbies in your search for happiness or “finding yourself,” but as soon as things get tough, you’re forced to wake up. This year, you will have to forget about your pie-in-the-sky fantasies or accomplishing silly items on a bucket list of worldly concerns. You will have to throw away your desire to be an eternal consumer who seeks hourly secretions of dopamine. Instead, you’ll have to recognize your Godly mission and embark upon it with vigor and faith.

What is the job or role that God has entrusted you with? Are you a mother, father, husband, wife, son, or daughter? Are you a teacher or student? Are you a charity worker, bureaucrat, employer, or shepherd who provides for a flock? That role has not changed. You still have a duty to perform and may not leave stranded those who depend on you.

There is a role you can take on right now without any experimentation or self-discovery. That role, whether within your family or community, was always there, but you turned away from it in exchange for something easier and more pleasurable on the body. The stage of procrastination is over, and even if it wasn’t, I’m sure you have already passed the point of diminishing return of fleshly pursuits. Any further delay on your part will just make the day of reckoning and adaptation to future tribulations that much harder to bear.

5. He allows us to dive into spiritual warfare with zeal

Those who depend on secular solutions will fall away into despair, depression, or suicide, assuming they haven’t already in 2020 from the coronavirus lockdowns. The world will not save you. No man can save you. Perhaps no human will even come to your aid when you are persecuted by the state or mob, not even those in your family. You will now have to depend entirely on God for your deliverance, and with that dependence will come an acceleration in the progression of your faith. As long as you choose for Christ, your faith will advance so rapidly that you will look back to this month and marvel at how much of a spiritual baby you were.

Difficulties and trials build faith. The reason we experience sufferings in life is that God loves us. Without suffering, we would never disconnect ourselves from the world for a moment to prepare for our next life, one that lasts for eternity. Therefore if suffering builds faith, may the Lord heap suffering upon us and the ability to endure it and respond to it all with the same love that He has for us.

This year will also reveal to many that the atheistic and nihilistic understandings to life are utterly meaningless and arbitrary. When looking only upon the seen world, there should be no reason why other humans are breathing hellfire upon their countrymen, why crime and murder are skyrocketing, why rulers want to take away our rights to speak on the public square as a law-abiding citizen with valid opinions and concerns on matters of survival. If we “evolved” from the animals, one must wonder why we behave so much worse than them.

First they will humiliate and terrorize us into silence, and when that doesn’t work, for it never does, they will kill us. Without God, this is an unbearable and frightening outcome, but with God, it is an opportunity to be a witness for Jesus Christ and receive the crown of martyrdom if you can bear it. I like to think my faith is strong enough to die for Christ, but it’s much easier to make such a statement than to live it. I will just have to wait and see what my faith is really made of.

Conclusion

The formula is simple: an effective conservative strongman is good for us materially but bad spiritually (assuming the strongman brings long-term calm and economic prosperity) while a usurper who serves China and the internationalists is bad for us materially but good spiritually. The question you have to ask yourself is whether you live for this world or the world to come, because if it’s the former, I do not know how you will make it through while playing at the blackjack table of the nihilistic casino, of hoping that things will turn around so that you may once again be able to travel around the world and eat Spanish tapas before a night out drinking at the bars. As a Christian, I don’t live for this world, and know that the more trials I face here, the more I can focus on what really matters—approaching the Judgment Seat of Christ knowing that I served Him will all my heart, body, and soul. God’s will be done, and may we endure it in a way that leads to our eternal salvation.

Roosh can you share your view on how priests and pastors seem to be ignoring everything going on? I'm continually told, by multiple leaders in different churches, that we shouldn't worry because Jesus has saved us. I haven't gotten any other answer yet from them. They seem just as worried as everyone else but then they put their masks on and seem very unwilling to resist any of the world's offerings.

One such emerging reaction, apropos to Roosh's piece above, is the forcing of conservative off of various "mainstream" platforms and even more mundane services such as banks and commerce. This will only make alternatives to these "mainstream" platforms not only preferable but a necessity. Since the cancelling of people is occurring in a complete way, it will means these newly de-personed persons will demand everything from web providers, social media to banks and even fast food will. A new society can literally manifest from all this.

Excellent example of blessing your enemies and not cursing them, Roosh. I think this is what is meant by that.

I knew QAnon was fraudulent and sketchy, but I did not know the exact precise nature of the beast. Now it makes perfect sense.

This is all well and good, but you have to accept that it will have consequences. I accept that I will never travel outside of Norway again in my life. (likely the case) I accept that I always have to fight the push to wear the face-mask, with stupid comments from the slaves, and occasionally being blocked from entering stores etc. I accept that there is no way to reason with all but an elect few, and the uncomfortable feeling that this gives me. I accept that most of my family is lost to reason as well, and are just like the other NPC`s. I even accept that this might eventually cost me everything, including my life on this planet. What if you can`t do your grocery shopping anymore without being vaccinated? What then?

I`m not making accusations here, but it`s easy to talk tough on this subject. If you`re not one of those that are actually defying the rules and regulations and taking the flak for it, you are not really following God. All I`m saying is that there is a real price to be paid. How high that price is can vary. I suppose that the burden should be easy to carry, if you have faith. It`s quite heavy for me at the moment I must say.

A good friend of mine (a beautiful conservative woman I known for twenty years) has been following Q for the last four years. This morning she sent me a Q video about how Trump and the Partriots have Biden "right where we want them." The arrests are coming, etc. Really, it's disgusting how these parasites play off the good-natured disposition of many Americans.

The response from clergy has been uneven. I'm plugged into the Orthodox world and I have seen strong statements from Greek Orthodox (in Greece, not USA), Serbian Orthodox, and Russian Orthodox that I would describe as helping the faithful navigate a world of increasing evil. There are also a handful of Catholic priests that understand what's going on, but as a whole, most Christians do not have a wise shepherd. The problem is that even if they did, because their existing faith was so weak, would they listen to him? We have to admit that many people who identify as Christians, before coronavirus and all, were quite lukewarm, and so wouldn't follow a man of God as they should. We can pray for these people, but as for men on this forum, with the information and spiritual guidance that is present here, I don't think we'll have an excuse to tell Christ when we die that we didn't know the truth, or that we couldn't discern the plan of the evil one. The bishop of my own church has not been vocal about what's going on, but does that mean I'm lost in the wind? No, God has sent many other men to enlighten me, whether on this forum or not, so as the flock we must work with what we have.

Quote that comes to mind...

Antony was confused as he mediated upon the depths of God’s judgements, and he asked God, ‘Lord, how is it that some die young and others grow old and sick? Why are there some poor and some rich? Why are there those who are bad and rich and oppress the good poor?’ He heard a voice saying to him, ‘Antony, worry about yourself; these other matters are up to God, and it will not do you any good to know them.’

I disagree with you on this point, during this pandemic I have witnessed more people than ever in my area filling the churches, turning to God in what can feel for them like end-times. What many of these people go on to receive is not instruction nor comfort but denial.

It is one thing to encourage your flock to not look towards worldly solutions and to look inward toward faith, it is quite another to pretend there aren't any issues at all.

I believe that if these people were met with someone who claims to speak through God, and understood the current problems and was able to at least allay their fears and speak from a place of seeming connected to the people rather than aloof then the people would listen, perhaps not immediately out of a newly born increase in faith, but out of understanding that they cannot solve the problems themselves and soon, as we have all experienced here they would experience the light of following God and their path to salvation would be lit.

For example look at one of your most influential Orthodox priests, Josiah Trenham. Is it not his ability to pierce through modern evil with the foresight of God's word that has brought him such acclaim? A man of vigour that speaks of modern evils and allays the fears with the knowledge that this has all been seen by God before.

I do believe even those with weak faith would at least listen so such a man, and most certainly they would if there were many of these men illuminating hope in a dark night for the West.

The question you have to ask yourself is whether you live for this world or the world to come, because if it’s the former, I do not know how you will make it through while playing at the blackjack table of the nihilistic casino, of hoping that things will turn around so that you may once again be able to travel around the world and eat Spanish tapas before a night out drinking at the bars. As a Christian, I don’t live for this world, and know that the more trials I face here, the more I can focus on what really matters—approaching the Judgment Seat of Christ knowing that I served Him will all my heart, body, and soul. God’s will be done, and may we endure it in a way that leads to our eternal salvation.

A tough wake-up call to stop being lukewarm Christians and stop putting our faith in men and worldly schemes. We need to walk in Godly faith, not in the flesh. A man cannot serve two masters.

Thanks Roosh, and thanks for the forum. This is my first post here.

1 John 2:15-17

15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[a] is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

When you consider that Q did not promote the plan of Jesus Christ but the plan of feeble human powers, it’s obvious to see that it was another one of Satan’s tricks to get people trusting in man instead of the God-man. It promoted passivity, community neglect, ignorance, and false hope, all while blurring the line between truth and fiction.

Can better Christians/theologians than me confirm or deny if these Q drops are Christian or not? https://qalerts.app/?q=god

QAnon is clearly designed to specifically target political and theological conservatives, who tend to be Christians of some stripe. In the same way that any Republican with two brain cells to rub together will at least put on airs of being a Christian in order to win over the conservative Christian voting bloc, so does QAnon.

Some of those posts, such as the prayer post, are indeed Christian in character in isolation in and of themselves. But in the context of how they are being utilized by QAnon, it's ultimately just a LARP to further solidify trust and comradery with conservatives, in order to sucker them further into the flytrap.

A good friend of mine (a beautiful conservative woman I known for twenty years) has been following Q for the last four years. This morning she sent me a Q video about how Trump and the Partriots have Biden "right where we want them." The arrests are coming, etc. Really, it's disgusting how these parasites play off the good-natured disposition of many Americans.

Sadly my aunt is the same way. I sent her a link to a vid exposing the Q psy-op and she said she "can't give up yet"

QAnon is a government or deep state psyop

I have seen about as much evidence for QAnon being a psyop as I saw for Q's predictions - zero. Obviously, anything is possible, but with government backing I would have expected QAnon to be much more successful. Instead, it was just some nonsensical rantings in a few corners of the internet. Most people had never heard of it until the media began reporting it because they decided it was a convenient way to portray all Trump supporters as crackpots.

The arguments that it was intended to keep people passive sound the same as the arguments people make that Trump was a secret deep state plant whose purpose was to keep the masses pacified. What exactly are the revolutionary things Q followers would have been doing if they hadn't "trusted the plan"? They would be doing what they are doing now - nothing or being fixated on some other delusion.
