In his The Art of War, dating back to the 5th Century BC, Sun Tzu issued a warning that applies today:
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.
Many have written off Maxine Waters, considering her to be a far-left unhinged California Democrat, seeking the spotlight for obscure and largely unimportant reasons. But a closer look at her background reveals an enemy of the American republic whose treason goes back decades. Waters has a communist and anti-American history that covers 26 pages of the aggregator DiscoverTheNetworks.org.
For instance, in 1982 Waters lent her name to a pamphlet published for a Communist Party USA (CPUSA) group that was led by Angela Davis, Charlene Mitchell, Anne Braden, and Frank Chapman (each with separate DTN pages of their own).
In 1983 she participated in a communist rally designed to coincide with the Los Angeles Summer Olympics. In 1984 she spoke at UC Berkeley at an event sponsored by the Democratic Socialists of America and Socialist Review, the monthly magazine of the Socialist Workers Party (SWP).
In 1998 Waters voted for a House Resolution that called on Castro’s communist government to extradite fugitive and cop-killer Assata Shakur, and then wrote a letter to Castro apologizing for her vote. Shakur escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to communist Cuba where Castro gave her asylum. Instead of referring to Shakur as a convicted murderer, Waters called her a “political activist” who was persecuted for her political beliefs and affiliations.
Waters is a member and former chair of the far-left Congressional Black Caucus, and a member of the equally odious Congressional Progressive Caucus.
President Trump erred when he tweeted that Waters is a “low IQ individual.” Instead, Waters knows exactly what she is going, and how to do it in a manner that draws maximum attention for a liberal mainstream media looking for headlines that attack the president and his people.
It would be a mistake to write Waters off as some sort of fringe, unhinged lefty without a following. She represents instead the kind of thinking and behavior that threatens the very foundations of a republic built on civility, character, and honesty. Remember that she first entered politics more than 40 years ago on the same platform that she is espousing today. And she continues to be reelected by people in her California district who don’t find her words, behavior, or communist affiliations at all objectionable.
Why all the attention on Maxine? Because she has told the truth about the war against the American republic, and her part in it. Following the booting of White House Press Secretary from the Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia on Friday night, Waters appeared on CNBC urging those who would listen to harass and publicly confront every member of the Trump administration wherever they might be found:
I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it’s wrong for what they’re doing on so many fronts. They tend to not want to confront this president or even leave, but they know what they’re doing is wrong.
I want to tell you, these members of his cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they won’t be able to go to a restaurant, they won’t be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re absolutely going to harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the president, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’ This is wrong. This is unconscionable. We can’t keep doing this to children.
She reiterated her threat to impeach the president:
We’ve got to push back. We’ve got to say no. I, for example, have stepped way out there. I said this man needs to be impeached. I know a lot of people think we’re not ready to say that. Some people have said a long time ago he would become presidential. He will never be presidential. This man does not have any good values. I believe he needs to be impeached.
As a matter of fact, a long time before he’s doing what he’s doing now with these children, I think he had done enough to undermine this country and to have us understand we cannot trust him, that we should have come with an impeachment resolution. So, I believe we cannot wait until the next presidential election. We have to resist him. I want to see him impeached.
She rushed over to the Wilshire Federal Building to continue her rampage against the president and members of his administration:
Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants, who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep,’
And guess what, we’re going to win this battle…. (emphasis added)
With her rant, Maxine has alerted those paying attention that there’s a war going on. And it’s going to get even uglier. Remember that left-wing Bernie Sanders’ supporter James Hodgkinson took his marching orders seriously in June, 2017, by shooting and nearly killing Steve Scalise, the Republican House Majority Whip from Louisiana, along with three others participating in baseball practice. The previous month Hodgkinson wrote that “Trump is a Traitor. Trump has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.”
And there’s the incident concerning Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen who was heckled and booed at a Mexican restaurant and then hassled by a mob outside her home three days later. And White House aide Steven Miller, who was called a “fascist” while dining out in D.C. And Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi who was driven from a movie theater.
There’s Robert De Niro’s obscenity, and Peter Fonda’s suggesting that Trump’s son Barron should be locked up with pedophiles, and so-called “comedienne” Kathy Griffin holding a picture of the president’s decapitated head.
How much worse it is likely to get? Hamilton Nolan, also a Sanders supporter and blogger at the left-wing SplinterNews.com, gave his answer:
Do you think that being asked to leave a restaurant, or having your meal interrupted, or being called [out] by the public is bad? My fascism-enabling friends, this is only the beginning….
This is going to get more extreme. And it should. We are living in extreme times….
The day will come, sooner than you all think, when Trump administration officials will look back fondly on the time when all they had to worry about was getting hollered at at a Mexican restaurant.
