A Warning to Those That Want to Control Us

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- In 1984 ex-KGB officer and Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov taught us about the Marxist plan for what they called ideological subversion. The term is foreign to most Americans. In a nutshell, it is the slow process of changing the perception of reality of Americans when it comes to the right to defend themselves, their community, their family, and their country. The communist laid out their diabolical plan in four phases.

The first phase is demoralization. This stage takes at least 15 to 20 years. Now 15 to 20 years are big numbers, but that is the time it takes to educate multiple generations of students. Bezmenov guessed it would take three generations of Marxism to be taught in the school system to accomplish the mission of making Americanism a dirty word. Now ask yourself, where have we seen students led by teachers to protest? March for our Lives, or as I like to call it, March Against our Rights, comes to mind. Also, the abandoning of teaching Civics could check that box of abandoning American Exceptionalism. We have also seen students rally against the American flag, the National Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance, and everything else that is considered remotely patriotic. And guess what? It has been three generations since 1984.

The second phase of this nefarious plan is destabilization. Bezmenov talks about the destabilizing if a country. He talks about doing it in three areas. The first area is the economy. What is the best way to destabilize an economy? Perhaps shutting down a large percentage of business and almost all small businesses for months at a time, and when you do let them reopen, you artificially limit the amount of business that they can do to pay the bills. The second is the military. Slashing military spending to fund an industry killing “Green New Deal” seems to go a long way in accomplishing this goal. Luckily that failed. The third is foreign relations. The best way to do this is to claim the President of the country is illegitimate and doesn’t have the backing of the people. Sound familiar?

The third phase is the crisis. Now I do not know about you, but I can’t figure this one out. It is not that we don’t have a crisis in the US. It is that this whole year has been one manufactured crisis after another. The forces Marxism is working overtime to blow through this stage in 2020, from COVID-19 to riots in the streets. Hell, the Marxists have even set up autonomous zones in Major cities in the pacific northwest. This phase of the plan that we are at now.

The fourth phase of the Marxist plan is called normalization. This phase of the plan where the communist takes over the country. I am writing this to issue a warning. That warning is not for the freedom-loving Americans that frequent this website. My warning is to those that want to subvert our way of life. My warning is to those that think they can force their will on us without push back. You see, we have a thing called the Second Amendment in this country. Contrary to what Kamala Harris said in her Amicus brief to the Supreme Court during Dick Heller’s case, it does ACKNOWLEDGE an individual’s right to keep and bear arms.

The gun grabbers do not want you or your fellow Americans to know that critical fact. They ignore the writings of Madison. They ignore the Federalist papers. They have to, or their arguments fall apart. They say the Second Amendment only applies to the militia. Well, guess what? You are the militia! I am the militia. Their anarcho-communist plan will never succeed as long as good men and women can throw off the chains of slavery through armed defiance. They have to disarm us for phase four to succeed, and I, for one, will never be disarmed. I will not give up my freedom for imaginary safety.

They will try to silence us and deplatform our voices. When I called out Facebook for letting the French Foreign Press incorrectly fact check and article by Rachel Malone and another article by Cam Edwards, instead of giving me a comment for my article and thanking me for letting them know about foreign election interference, they outright banned me from the social media platform for life. They didn’t give me a reason. They just quietly removed the faulty fact check and told me I was not welcome on the platform ever again.

But I will get my voice out there even if I have to stand on a street corner with a megaphone. My fellow patriots will amplify it. I will not be silent. I will continue to fact check the fact-checkers, and I will continue to fight for liberty. This fight isn’t one that we can let them win. It is time to push back. It is time to stand up for what is right. It is for freedom. It is for liberty. Most importantly, it is for the future of our children.
We will not let you win.

It has been going on for a while. I seem to remember a First Secretary banging his shoe on a podium a number of decades ago claiming that they were going to “bury us.” I will most likely not live long enough to see the outcome but I will leave “favors” for the party to my children.


I knew his name but sometimes it’s better to let others do their own homework. That way they might stumble on something else they didn’t know or forgot about.


I remember my Father, Air Force SMSgt, leaving for work (radar site just east of Pickstown, SD) and not coming home for seven days. With no explanation from my Mother. Those were some interesting times. I turned seven at the end of that month.


Interesting that eleven years later I was involved in the US armed forces going to Defcon 3 in a very small way. The Yom Kippur War in October 1973 was in play when I arrived in Miesau, Germany. I had been there just a day or so when one morning everybody was running around like chickens with their heads cut off. I stopped Platoon Sgt Rodgers and asked what was going on. He said that the Russians had troops in the air headed for Israel and that we had gone to Defcon 3. They were trying to get the tractor… Read more »


Your Article is 100% on the money, I feel the same way The country my Father, Grandfathers and Uncles fought for dating back to the civil war is in jeopardy. I will not relinquish my firearms nor will I register them, I will not bow or be controlled by marxist leaders period. I will die knee deep in brass in my home before I kiss any rings of Socialism.

Liberty Valance

Absolutely agree with you Sempai. My grandfather was sent to an internment camp during WW2 under an armed guard as directed by the government. He told me the very first thing they took from him was his handgun after which the soldiers proceeded to confiscate the rest of his property. When he was freed after 2 years the first thing he bought was another handgun and he swore then and there that no one would ever disarm him again.

Absolutely agree with you Sempai. My grandfather was sent to an internment camp under guard by U.S.soldiers in WW2. He told me the first thing the soldiers took from him was his handgun, after which they confiscated the rest of his property. He and his family never got their property back. When he was released after 2 years the first thing he bought was a handgun on the black market. He swore that no one would ever take it from him again. I still have the gun, a Colt 1908 hammer less. No one is going to take this or… Read more »


I know your grandfather is smiling with his colt 1908 that you still have and the lessons he taught you that may come to fruition in our times.

If we hand in our guns to the government either piecemeal or all at once what is going to protect us from the government??




Reminder of what Khrushchev said 60 years ago….”Your children’s children will live under communism. You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright; but, we will keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you will finally wake up and find you already have Communism. We will not have to fight you. We will so weaken your economy, until you will fall like overripe fruit into our hands. The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not” It was September 29, 1959, when… Read more »

I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to write that out.

Well said Sir. It looks like the tree that Jefferson talked about is about to be refreshed. We have an abundance of tyrants in the legislative branch, the judicial branch, the school campus and the legal system. If this were 1775 the balls would already be flying. Freedom is not free, it comes with the highest of costs. I hope that everyone is ready for what is obviously coming. If not then get ready asap

Arm up, carry on


I’ve been recommending to people for years to watch the interview with Yuri Bezmenov as a warning about what is coming.


Try this one on for size.



The 2nd Amendment is the last ditch, fall back position and must be protected to the last man standing!
Thank God for the foresight of our Founding Fathers ; I have a hunch that they knew this day would finally come. As Ben Franklin famously said, when asked what kind of government we about to embark on,
“ We have a Republic – if you can keep it ! “


Two of my favorites;

“The thing that sets the American Christian apart from all other people in the world is that he will die on his feet rather before he will live on his knees.” George Washington.

Duty is ours;
Consequences are God’s. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

And now the fight has begun…I’m locked and loaded!

The question is going to be How many martyrs will it take on our side before we stop waiting for them to come for us and go after THEM instead? Remember, the feds torched the Branch Davidian compound and justified it by claiming children were being abused thus silencing SOME support the Davidians may have had.


You are so right. I remember Nikita beating on his desk at the U.N. Our so called lawmakers are going page for page using the text book on how to take over a country from within. We have sent our children to the institutes of b rain washing some paying a very large indoctrination fee. The professors are also using the same text book. You Did not put a stop to what was being done to our children because the parents wanted to be a friend. The children are not your friend, you are responsible for their education. Most have… Read more »

Everyone should contact their senators and representatives in congress and tell them Facebook should be regulated and follow the same guidelines as the regular news media by being able to be held accountable for the content they strike because they don’t like the conservative views.
Sargent Friday use to say “Only the facts maam” needs to apply.


The only thing is if they want to come and take my guns, TWO THINGS, BRING LOTS OF BODY BAGS< and ONLY FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And don’t touch the barrel, it will be very hot!


Many of us are from the people that fought the English in Europe,arrived in America to fight the French/Indian War,Revolutionary War, 1812 War,Mexican War,War between the States,Spanish-American,WWI,WWII,Korean,Vietnam and MideasternWars. When it comes to our Homeland, we will be even more deadly and UNFORGIVING to those that attempt to take that which is not theirs. Communists will be thrown on the ash heap again again if they cannot control their foolish hate.


Except the idea that the Rooskies are the ones trying to take us over is a vessel sailing under a false flag, the better to fool us. Much was made about “russian collusioin” in the last election.. a parry and feint maneouvre. The real threat comes from the other direction…. the same source as the home made virus that has been used to effect stages two and three….. and has largely succeedec, unless we wake up and tell Fautchee where to go hang himself up in the closet. Anyone else remember some of the sweet deals California made with them>… Read more »

Really good article John. There is one other thing, maybe the most important thing, that was left out of the communist, socialist, demoncrapic plan to destroy our country. The FIRST thing is to get rid of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY and put government in HIS place. See Kruchev’s speech @ the u.n. in 1959. Once a person’s or nation’s accountability to the LORD goes away there is no foundation left. The wise man builds his house on the ROCK. The foolish man builds his house upon the sand. We all know what happens next. There’s no such thing as justice,… Read more »




Stand firm, remember your oaths, remember the time you have served this nation and its people, and never waver.


I, two of my three brothers, one of my two sisters, my father and several of his brothers in WW2, and his father who had to spend two months in hospital in England due to mustard gas in WW1. And then there is my father’s sister’s son who gave his life in Vietnam so that others might live.

The timeline noted is instructional, but it appears to assume that the target population is unknowing, or at least unwilling, participants in the transition. Today, you have large segments of the US population who openly endorse Marxism and are working actively to advance it. Today, the radical left has hop-scotched over socialism and landed on the Marxism square – anyone who doubts this need only read and digest the tenets on the Black Lives Matter website and note the numbers who support it. There is no debate over the radical agenda now rampant through the entire educational establishment – and… Read more »


Welcome to the late Sixties.


Holy mother of mother fking sht…….


Where did the video in the post go? I watched it this morning and I am not seeing it now.


I will have to say Mr Crump has lost his credibility with me. Takes down the video and edits the article without a peep from him. Kinda like Facebook and Twitter has snuck into ammoland.com. He should have made note in the article why this happened.

“Now ask yourself, where have we seen students lead by teachers to protest?”
Past tense of lead is LED.
This is not like the two pronunciations of “read” where both present and past tense are spelled the same.

Good attempt at obfuscation, teacher. Grammar Nazi.


Mature people read for content , not style. His meaning is crystal clear, as is his warning. Ihope you caught the warning after you recovered from the freakout over the “grammer” mis-steak.
