We are in the midst of an ongoing Cognitive War with China in which our American leadership in Congress, Executive Branch (e.g., Military, Intelligence, Defense), and even State offices have already been targeted. The timing of the attack is in planning or already set. The means to kill our top leadership at every level is already in place – with little to no means to preclude the attack.
The collection of targeting information is already complete. Our blissful ignorance and unwillingness to realize this dangerous reality will result in the most devastating surprise attack – that will make Pearl Harbor, 9-11, and the China Flu (Covid 19) impacts of thousands to millions murdered pale in comparison. We can alter the plans of our enemy, but only if we’re willing to wake up and remove our heads from the dark rear orifice of bliss in which we now live.
Our intelligence elements will find it almost impossible to identify the killers, and by the time they do, it will be too late. Once China decides to attack, it will be impossible to stop. Yes, impossible to stop, as by the time we figure it out and react, it will be too late. China knows that. They will not fear a nuclear retaliatory attack, why? Because, if we eventually figure out who was behind the massive attack and murders, they will warn that any nuclear attack will be met with similar – as they now build a nuclear force equivalent to ours. They fear not such a war, as they place no value on human life, and know we do. So, they will hold all the cards.
Their view is that of an Unrestricted War (first published by two Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Colonels, Qiao Liang and Wang Xiangsui, Beijing: PLA Literature and Arts Publishing House, February 1999).
What must be made clear is that the new concept of weapons is in the process of creating weapons that are closely linked to the lives of the common people. Let us assume that the first thing we say is: The appearance of new-concept weapons will definitely elevate future warfare to a level which is hard for the common people — or even military men — to imagine. Then the second thing we have to say should be: The new concept of weapons will cause ordinary people and military men alike to be greatly astonished at the fact that commonplace things that are close to them can also become weapons with which to engage in war. We believe that some morning people will awake to discover with surprise that quite a few gentle and kind things have begun to have offensive and lethal characteristics. (Unrestricted Warfare).
We know they stole over one million Office of Personnel Management (OPM) records of our national security leaders. They’ve also collected massive DNA and family genealogical data from their commercial entities. They’ve bought massive amounts of commercial data on our citizens from commercial social media, financial, and other firms. Yet, they have their own continued massive collection systems, TikTok, WeChat, and other means that are persistent and enabled by the over 150 million American users too naïve and ignorant to realize they are feeding the massive targeting system. This information allows for precise biological, chemical, and other forms of directed attack by person, family, or other.
We can only imagine the timing of such an event. No, not related to the invasion of Taiwan, as that will not occur. China will be able to fully subjugate Taiwan once they strike in the scenario just laid out. The timing will occur at an optimal moment to drive total chaos, anarchy, and mayhem across the United States. It could be the 2024 election, or it could be before as the Chinese may wish to aid the current Manchurian President in avoiding a loss in 2024. The objective of China is two-fold. First, to disable and remove any real threat from America as we spiral into massive panic, economic collapse, and lack of leadership at all levels. Second, to ensure the total subversion of our country and ability to respond.
I define Cognitive War – as primarily an ideological war, between tyranny and freedom, control and independence, subjugation, and democracy. It is a war fought primarily in the cognitive domain using strategies which apply various ways (e.g., ideology, religion, issues) and means (e.g., academic, economic, agriculture, social, etc.) to influence. In its most basic form, it is a war between good and evil. Cognitive war can and does include irregular warfare and kinetics. It is a war that has been ongoing for more than a millennium. It is timeless as mankind exists. Cognitive war is truly the existential threat that is global and domestic. In today’s U.S.A, few understand it, can defend against it, can compete in it, or win it. It can be won, but not if we are unwilling to change.
I’ve warned of this reality for several years, and do so again now, and in my forthcoming book “The Cognitive War – Why We Are Losing and How We Can Win.” My warning, first written in February of 2019, states:
Unless we adjust our future to account for the paradigm shifts that have occurred under our feet, our nation and its intelligence operations will once again awaken too late, to a different reality, which is likely to end badly with significant and long-term impacts to our nation’s security and place as world leader.
I project such a negative and reactive outcome to occur either because we lost the cognitive war totally, our adversaries succeed undermining our institutions and democratic foundation to such an extent they are no longer viable, or, because our efforts to counter in the cognitive domain came too late.
If we fail to act in the cognitive domain, we will likely end up in a major kinetic conflict resulting in devastating outcomes, in physical and human toll – from which recovery is questionable.
To change this reality before us requires immediate action now! The blissful ignorance of our leaders in failing to imagine the true magnitude of the threat – given all of the warnings is astounding. Do we not see the cyber-attacks on our infrastructure, health care, and national security? Do we not see the tens of thousands of Chinese military aged illegals freely entering our country? Do we not see the theft, expanding alliances with adversaries, and increased belligerency? Do we not see how our own leadership (Biden, Kerry, Yellen, Blinken) bow before China as apostates? Do we not see China’s murder of over one million Americans by a purposeful pandemic and continued slaughter of over 100,000 per year has no consequences. China does, as they smile and continue to advance their Cognitive War against America without consequence, alarm, and little concern.
Americans must realize that we are no longer protected by two oceans. We must direct and demand – not ask – our national and state leadership to take action now to mitigate and complicate such a scenario. We have the means, methods, and expertise to alter such a future. The 9-11 Commission’s key finding was that our intelligence community had a failure of imagination that resulted in the attack. Now, we have a system failure not in imagination – but in admitting the reality before us. Will we act to stop the silent killers? Or will we live in bliss until we awaken to a nightmare from which we may never recover?
