I need to warn you that this is far and away my longest article to date. I feel like there are parts of this article in which I easily could have elaborated further but for brevity sake I did not. I could have broken this article up into two or even three parts but I truly felt it was important to make this one article because it all ties together. By the end of this article I believe you will understand exactly why the situation in Afghanistan is unfolding the way it is, what role Trump has in it, and that we are truly on the precipice of taking back our country.

Almost 10 days ago I was asked a question by Dave Hayes (Praying Medic):

Here is a summary of my reply:

At the latest I would say it was Jan 15, 2020. In Devolution - Part 1, I reference Trump and Chinese economic dealings. They signed the trade deal on Jan 15th, the day before his first impeachment started.

Here is a screen shot from Devolution - Part 1:

I think the timing of Covid-19 coming from China at the same time as Trump signed the Phase One trade deal is too much of a coincidence. I believe Covid-19 was the CCP’s response to hurt our economy in retaliation for winning the trade deal which we certainly did by looking at any objective measure. It must have embarrassed Xi.

Dave then pointed out that January 15th, 2020 was the day that the first case of Covid-19 arrived in the United States from Wuhan according to the CDC.

The number of “coincidences” that I have come across writing this series has been astounding. Anyway, Dave’s question got me thinking about the bigger picture. Trump was making moves to prepare for an election theft long before January 15th, 2020. I can’t imagine he knew back in 2018 that in two years, Covid-19 would leak from a CCP bioweapons lab and be used as a pretext to steal the 2020 election.

This war is bigger than just China. As I said in Devolution Addendum Series - Part 1, Trump is fighting a war against the entire political establishment. Remember, the political establishment is the cause of not just America’s problems, but problems around the entire world.

Many of our government leaders and government institutions have been corrupted nearly beyond repair. They have been selling America out for personal gain for years. They do it because it’s extremely lucrative and they do it because they have gotten away with it for so long. They thought they were invincible.

The MSM and big tech act as the propaganda arm and spin the narrative necessary for the political establishment to operate while keeping America ignorant. The political establishment then uses the intelligence agencies to do their dirty work. They rig the elections as to never lose their grip on power, the media, big tech and the intelligence community cover-up the rigged elections then they rinse, wash and repeat.

America’s enemies jump at the chance to assist them in their operations. For example, when the CCP has the opportunity to make a shady deal with a corrupt American politician (or a member of his/her family) it becomes the best case scenario for the CCP. Having proof of corrupt dealings provides the CCP with the opportunity to control those government officials that are involved. They can use the proof of the dealings as blackmail and that is an effective tool for getting what you want. It doesn’t take long to destroy the greatest nation on earth when its leaders have sold it out.

When corruption like this perverts our entire government, who can stop it?

The answer to this question is the basis for this article and really the basis for the entire Devolution series.

There is only one remaining group of individuals that stands in the way of the total destruction of America. That group is the United States military.

Joint Publication 1 from the Joint Chiefs of Staff doctrine series tells us the purpose of the United States Armed Forces:

“Defending the US against all adversaries while serving the Nation as a bulwark and the guarantor of its security and independence.” What if those adversaries are our own leadership? What if our elected officials themselves are risking the security and independence of the United States?

The US Armed Forces have the best intelligence capabilities in the world. What would happen if they received intelligence that a sitting President and/or his administration did something that by any objective measure put the national security of the United States of America at risk? What if it happened repeatedly? How could they defeat the biggest threat to America if that threat is where their orders are coming from?

This is where I believe the true “silent war” began. Prior to Trump ever announcing his candidacy for President, the military was witnessing the highest levels of our government selling out America for personal gain and putting our national security at risk.

So in order to properly provide context to why devolution had to happen, we need to look back at what got us here. Why did the political establishment fight Trump’s Presidency so hard; as if their lives depended on it? Why were they so desperate to stop Trump that they over-played their hands and blatantly stole an election? Where did the “silent war” begin?

The Obama Years

I have no doubt that the war against the political establishment has been happening since prior to Barack’s Presidency, but this seemed like the most logical place to start. By the time Donald Trump announced his run for Presidency in June of 2015, the political establishment had already completely corrupted our federal government. Trump’s built his 2016 campaign on the premise of giving the government back to the American people.

Although the propaganda arm of the political establishment would like you to think otherwise, Barack Obama was a terrible President and his Presidency was filled with scandals. This wikipedia page has a list of 68 “Obama administration controversies.” I won’t be mentioning every “controversy” but I will focus on the ones that I believe are most relevant to the devolution we are currently seeing play out.

The primary scandals are:

  • Uranium One Deal

  • Operation Fast and Furious

  • The Clinton Email Scandal

  • The Iran Nuclear Deal

  • Benghazi

  • Spygate

Each one of these scandals is an example of our own government, led by President Obama, directly putting the national security of the United States at risk. I could easily write an article dedicated to each of these individually, but with how long this article is going to end up being, I will not be able to do that. The scandal I will “deep-dive” into is Benghazi (you’ll see why shortly). I don’t want the fact that I won’t be providing in-depth analysis of the other scandals to take away from their overall importance. They all play a part in the bigger picture. I urge you to do your own research if you feel something is lacking.

*Disclaimer: I didn’t start following politics until 2018. I had surface-level understanding of these scandals but I wasn’t paying attention as they were unfolding. Writing this article opened my eyes to how corrupt Washington had become. It’s truly breath-taking*

The Uranium One Deal

The Uranium One deal is the typical pay-for-play scenario. This October 2017 National Review article provides a solid breakdown. There is plenty more to the full story so read the article some day when you have a chance:

If you think that is the only Clinton scandal, “Lew in skee nothing yet.” Forgive my poor attempt at a humorous Monica Lewinsky reference, but please keep the above scandal in mind. This type of pay for play scheme is common for our corrupt political establishment.

There is no doubt that the Uranium One deal put the national security of the United States at risk. Many details of the scandal have come to light. Our military is obviously aware of those details and with their intelligence capabilities they likely know more than we do regarding the details that haven’t yet come to light.

The real question is how would white hats in the military feel about seeing this unfold? Would they be ok with this?

Operation Fast and Furious

Although the following is from CNN, I believe it contains a good basic overview of the scandal:

“Here’s a look at Operation Fast and Furious. From 2009-2011, the Phoenix Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), along with other partners, allowed illegal gun sales in order to track the sellers and purchasers, who were believed to be connected to Mexican drug cartels.

During the Fast and Furious investigation, nearly 2,000 firearms were illegally purchased for $1.5 million, according to a DOJ inspector General report. Hundreds of guns were later recovered in the United States and Mexico.

In 2010, two of the weapons linked to Fast and Furious turned up near the scene of the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in the Arizona desert.

Whistleblowing led to investigations by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. During the House investigation, Attorney General Eric Holder was cited for contempt.

Fast and Furious was one of the operations under Project Gunrunner, part of the Department of Justice’s broader National Southwest Border Counternarcotics Strategy.

So our own government was selling firearms to Mexican drug cartels and those guns end up being connected to all sorts of crimes. Does that not put America’s security at risk? Do you think the white hats in the military would be ok with this going on?

The Clinton Email Scandal

“Clinton Cash is an investigation of the foreign benefactors of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. It investigates alleged connections between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton's work at the State Department.

The book argues that the Clinton family accepted lavish donations and speaking fees from foreign donors at times when the State Department was considering whether to award large contracts to groups and people affiliated with those donors. One of those donors include Mohammed Hussein Al Amoudi, an Ethiopian and Saudi Arabian billionaire businessman.

The book has eleven chapters. Some chapters focus on particular transactions or deals, such as the creation of UrAsia Energy and Uranium One in Kazakhstan, and the connection shareholders had and have to the Clintons. Other chapters focus on a broader set of relationships, particularly with regard to Bill Clinton's paid speeches during the years Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, and whether those paying for his speeches had significant business before the State Department. Schweizer dubs the Clintons' blend of government service and private remuneration the "Clinton blur".

Hillary Clinton is basically Joe Biden in a pant suit with a mean streak for “suiciding” anyone who might have dirt on her. Both are products of the corrupt political establishment they are beholden too, and both sold out their country for personal gain.

The Iran Nuclear Deal

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly referred to as the Iran nuclear deal, is certainly one of the more complex scandals. There appears to be much more than meets the eye.

“The Obama administration followed up a planeload of $400 million in cash sent to Iran in January with two more such shipments in the next 19 days, totaling another $1.3 billion, according to congressional officials briefed by the U.S. State, Treasury and Justice departments.

The cash payments—made in Swiss francs, euros and other currencies—settled a decades-old dispute over a failed arms deal dating back to 1979. U.S. officials have acknowledged the payment of the first $400 million coincided with Iran’s release of American prisoners and was used as leverage to ensure they were flown out of Tehran’s Mehrabad on the morning of Jan. 17.”

Think about how our military felt about the Iran nuclear deal. The United States had been fighting a war on terrorism in the middle east dating back to 2001, and President Barack Obama gave cash to our enemies and released prisoners back to them. I don’t want to speculate but this deal smells fishy and I cannot imagine our military was ok with it. The Iran Nuclear deal clearly put our national security at risk.

The Benghazi Attack

This is where things get interesting because this is where we start to some similar faces from the Devolution series. First let’s look at some background that I have copied and pasted from Ballotpedia. I will leave all the citations for your reference. There is plenty more to this story but again, for the sake of brevity, I will only try to cover the relevant details.

“On September 11, 2012, Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi meeting with Libyan officials in search of Muammar Gaddafi's weapons stockpiles. He was also there to open a cultural center.[37]

The attack on the U.S. mission started around 9:40 p.m. when gunshots and an explosion were heard. The militia overpowered the main gate and burned the barracks building. At about 10:00 p.m., the militia broke through the compound wall and the ambassador went to the safe room with information officer Sean Smith. The CIA annex, located approximately a mile away, was notified of the attack. While Stevens and Smith were in safe room, the building was set on fire using diesel fuel causing smoke to fill the building. The CIA agents and 16 Libyan security guards regained control of the compound and began searching for Stevens and Smith.[37]

The first drones were sent over the site as President Obama began to meet with the secretary of defense and the chair of the joint chiefs. An email indicating the group Ansar al-Sharia claimed the attack was sent from the U.S. State Department to the White House.[37]

At about 1:15 a.m. on September 12, a rescue team from Tripoli arrived in Benghazi. Those rescued from the mission were at the CIA annex, including Stevens. Deputy Mission Chief Gregory Hicks notified Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that Americans in Benghazi needed to be evacuated at 2:00 a.m. At about 4:00 a.m., the militants attacked the CIA annex and killed Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. The bodies of Stevens, Smith, Doherty and Woods were on the final plane out of Libya at 10:00 a.m. on September 12.[37]

Although senior White House officials initially labeled the attack a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim video made by an American that was circulating in the region, the Obama administration acknowledged on September 19, 2012, that it was a premeditated terrorist attack.[2][3]

“The administration could not publicly admit that Benghazi was mostly a secret CIA effort.” “Internal conflict between agencies.” Will we ever know the true scope of what happened during Benghazi? Maybe not. There is definitely more to the story, however I now want to discuss how this relates to the the theme of the article; that our corrupt political establishment and their actions are at odds with the military and their duty to uphold the security and independence of the United States. This is where we see ties between Benghazi and Devolution.

Let’s once again look into the background of the man at the epicenter of the Devolution Series; Christopher C. Miller.

Important to note that as far back as 2001, our military was at odds with the political establishment. The subject matter of these types of disagreements are what negatively affect our national security.

This is an interesting story and something I want you to keep in mind as I continue. Miller and his team came in as a quick reaction force in response to a friendly fire airstrike. A quick reaction force (QRF) is “an armed military unit capable of rapidly responding to developing situations, typically to assist allied units in need of such assistance. They are to have equipment ready to respond to any type of emergency, typically within ten minutes or less but that is based on unit standard operating procedures (SOPs).”

Here is another example from 2003 discussing the QRF team from the (recently abandoned) Bagram AFB in Afghanistan:

Back to Chris Miller:

“Miller also spent three years of his Army career detailed from the DoD to the intelligence.” More specifically, starting sometime in 2011 through sometime in 2014, Chris Miller was in his last assignment as an Army officer as Director for Special Operations and Irregular Warfare in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations/Low-Intensity Conflict & Interdependent Capabilities at the Pentagon.

As the Director for Special operations and IW in the office of the ASD SO/LIC, he would be the third highest in command specifically for Special operations at the DoD, directly reporting to the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations and Counterterrorism, who directly reported to the ASD SO/LIC. This is a position located in the Pentagon. Here is a slideshow from July, 2014 prepared by then Colonel Christopher Miller showing the (somewhat confusing) org chart. I’ve simplified it for you to illustrate the chain of command during his time as Director for SO/IW:

During the Benghazi raid on September 11, 2012, Chris Miller was watching the events unfold from the pentagon and was part of the team that would have been making operational decisions.

In other words, he was present and directly involved when special operations were halted from responding to Benghazi attacks.

There were special operations QRFs with ability to get to Benghazi but they were ordered to stand down by the Pentagon.

Who at the Pentagon ordered the stand down?

Senate investigation

The investigation report released on January 15, 2014, by the Senate Intelligence committee said that the "State Department failed to increase security at its mission despite warnings, and blamed intelligence agencies for not sharing information about the existence of the CIA outpost with the U.S. military," according to the Washington Post.[49]

The Senate Intelligence Committee released the following statement along with a 58-page declassified report on the Benghazi attack: "The committee found the attacks were preventable, based on extensive intelligence reporting on the terrorist activity in Libya — to include prior threats and attacks against Western targets — and given the known security shortfalls at the U.S. Mission."[50]

House Select Committee on Benghazi

On May 8, 2014, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) was chosen to lead a special committee investigating the attack in Benghazi and the administration's actions regarding the attack. The committee was made up of seven Republicans and five Democrats.[51] When asked if the U.S. State Department would comply with the committee's requests, Secretary of State John Kerry stated, "We’ll respond because we have absolutely nothing to hide whatsoever and I look forward to complying with whatever responsibilities we have."[52]

The twelve members named to the House Select Committee on Benghazi were:[53][54]

The investigation by the House Select Committee on Benghazi culminated in a 800+ page report. Representatives Jim Jordan and Mike Pompeo took things a step further and issued an addendum to the report because they felt Chairman Trey Gowdy’s effort did not sufficiently criticize the Obama Administration's handling of the attacks.

So while I don’t think we have the full scope of the Benghazi situation, here is what we do know. Chris Miller was in the Pentagon when the Special Operation’s QRF was told to stand down.

Remember these are people he personally worked with before being promoted to the Pentagon. How do you think he felt about that? Chris Miller was a member of one of these QRF teams back in 2001 at the start of the war. I can’t imagine the same man who volunteered his team to be a QRF for the 2001 mission referenced above would be at all “okay” with the Pentagon’s response (or lack thereof) to the Benghazi incident.

The political establishment was using the military to advance their political agendas. They created a bureaucratic chain of command in which operational decisions were made through the Pentagon.

I don’t think this sat well with Chris Miller, and I believe I can prove it. Here are Chris Miller’s comments from November 18, 2020 when he, along with Ezra Cohen Watnick, announced the elevation of United States Special Operations to a level on par with that of the other branches of the armed services:

“This reform will immediately improve agility to the department and the command, and will enable us to streamline information flow, enhance decision-making and more adaptively and adeptly support our commanders and their superb soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines.” - This almost feels like a direct shot at the Obama administration and their handling of Benghazi.

Chris Miller and the special operations forces account for just one aspect of the Benghazi incident. General Michael Flynn accounts for the other. I’ll try to summarize this as best as I can.

General Michael Flynn

General Michael Flynn was never scared to speak his mind and was often critical of the Obama administration and the reality of the war in Iraq and deficiencies within the intelligence community:

Flynn was commissioned in the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant in military intelligence in 1981. His military assignments included multiple tours and he had an extensive career in military intelligence. He and his superior, General McChrystal, streamlined all intelligence so as to increase the tempo of operations and degrade the networks of Al-Qaeda in Iraq. He served as the director of intelligence of the United States Central Command from June 2007 to July 2008, as the director of intelligence of the Joint Staff from July 2008 to June 2009, then the director of intelligence of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan from June 2009 to October 2010.

In September 2011, Flynn was promoted to Lieutenant General and assigned as assistant director of national intelligence in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. On April 17, 2012, President Barack Obama nominated Flynn to be the 18th director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Flynn took command of the DIA in July 2012. He simultaneously became commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, and chair of the Military Intelligence Board. Flynn was seeing the most classified military intelligence available.

In mid-2014, his two-year term at the DIA was not extended. On April 30, 2014, Flynn announced his retirement effective later that year, about a year earlier than he had been scheduled to leave his position. He was reportedly effectively forced out of the DIA after clashing with superiors over his allegedly chaotic management style and vision for the agency.

According to what Flynn had said in one final interview as DIA director, he felt like a lone voice in thinking the United States was less safe from the threat of Islamic terrorism in 2014 than it was prior to the 9/11 attacks; he went on to believe he was pressed into retirement for questioning the Obama administration's public narrative that Al Qaeda was close to defeat.

Flynn retired from the U.S. Army with 33 years of service on August 7, 2014.

On November 10, 2015, Flynn gave an interview to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) Lessons Learned project later published as part of the Afghanistan Papers:

Michael Flynn was somebody who knew where the bodies were buried. He was director of the Defense Intelligence Agency during Benghazi. Benghazi was the direct result of Obama Administration corruption, as detailed in this Fox News article written by Michael Flynn himself:

“By ignoring military and intelligence officials, she let personal interests conflict with U.S. foreign policy.” Michael Flynn is perfectly describing the war between white hats in the military and the corrupt political establishment. Flynn was one of those intelligence officials ignored by Hillary Clinton due to her own personal interests. The above article was written using no classified information. Imagine what else Flynn knew from his time as Director of the DIA with access to the highest level of classified information within our military. Michael Flynn represented the biggest threat to the political establishment. This was the reason Obama told Trump not to hire Michael Flynn which naturally, Trump ignored.

Of course Trump knew he wasn’t joking. Michael Flynn was exactly who Trump wanted and needed to help take down the political establishment once and for all. Trump knew it, and so did the political establishment. This leads us to the last scandal I’ll be touching on from the Obama administration.


When Donald Trump won the 2016 election, the Obama administration— along with the entire political establishment— was shocked and in a panic. Their criminal enterprise was at risk of exposure. General Michael Flynn was their worst nightmare. They desperately needed Flynn out of the picture so they turned to who they always turn to: the MSM, Big tech, and the intelligence community.

Those three groups colluded to create the false story that Flynn was a Russian agent. They framed Flynn to get him kicked from Trump’s cabinet and then they used that as a springboard to move forward with their fake Russia investigation. At the time, it was considered by many to be the greatest political crime in American history. In my opinion, it has only been surpassed by the theft of the 2020 election. On a broader scale, however, the election theft was perpetrated to cover up for the Russia hoax (along with the rest of their crimes) so maybe we can consider this whole series of events as one long continuous political crime; “the silent war.”

Brian Cates is second to none when it comes to all things Spygate. It was one of his articles that first got me interested in politics. I urge you to read all of his work, but here is his latest piece, which I believe provides an excellent reminder as to what is coming:

This scandal is enormous and yes, “Durham is coming.” It looks like Durham’s report is being set up to drop around the same time as the Arizona forensic audit will be released. Those two reports will have earth shattering consequences and will expose the biggest series of political crimes in our history. The Durham report will expose the corruption and scandals, and the audit report will expose the theft of an election and their cover-up.

This brings us to the final piece of the “deep state puzzle.”

The political establishment loves to use the phrase “systemic racism” in an attempt to pin all of America’s problems under a label that serves only to cause more division and hide the causes of the actual problems. The reality is that the far bigger “systemic” problem in our country is that of systemic political corruption.

Joe Biden is the byproduct of the systemic political corruption created and carried out by the political establishment. Biden is a lifetime government talking head who never actually accomplished anything noteworthy in terms of policy while in Congress, but became wildly successful selling his name and political clout for personal profit.

Leading up to the 2020 election, it was discovered that Hunter Biden’s laptop appeared to be abandoned at a computer repair store and supposedly had copious amounts of information detailing the corrupt business dealings of the Biden family. In order to protect Joe Biden’s election chances, the propaganda wing of the political establishment buried and censored anybody who dared to cover it, calling it “Russian misinformation.” The reality is much different. From Business Insider:

The intelligence community, MSM and big tech have done everything they can to provide cover for the Biden family in regards to what is on this laptop, but we have to keep in mind who else might have had this information. Specifically, who else could have the laptop and be able to act upon what is inside?

The answer is simple. It’s the same people who have been fighting the political establishment for years. The same people with terabytes of data from Chinese Defector Dong Jingwei. The same people who know Covid was a bioweapon. The same people who caught the political establishment stealing an election with help from a foreign adversary. The same people who are running the devolution operation.

President Donald Trump and the military.

The Biden Crime Family

Biden’s entire “presidency” has been an abject failure. The most relevant failure is the situation in Afghanistan because we are watching it play out live. There wasn’t a death under President Trump’s watch since February of 2020. Trump’s policy in the middle east was working. How did Joe Biden mess this up so badly? Did Trump play a role? Are Biden’s decisions being made based on what’s best for America or what is best for his bank account?

Let’s find out.

On September 23, 2020, Senators Ron Johnson and and Chuck Grassley, the chairmen of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) and the Senate Finance Committee, respectively, released a majority staff report entitled “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.” There is plenty of corruption in this report and I urge you to take the time to read through it yourself, but I’m going to walk through a few things from the report related specifically to China in order to show you how I believe it’s related to the situation in Afghanistan.

The Biden’s knew prior to Joe “winning” the 2020 election, that Hunter’s (and therefore Joe’s) foreign business dealings were conflicts of interest. Trump and the military knew this as well. On October 13, 2019, Hunter committed “not to serve on boards of, or work on behalf of, foreign owned companies.”

It shouldn’t surprise you that Hunter did not follow through on his commitment. On June 21, 2021, the Washington Examiner reported that “Hunter Biden still hasn’t divested from Chinese government-linked investment firm.”

Clearly, this financial dealing could be a threat to the National Security of the United States by providing the CCP with the Henniges’ anti-vibration tech. Officials from the Pentagon expressed concern over this fact back in 2011:

BHR plays a larger role to the overall story here. Let’s dig in even further. As of August 30, 2021, one of the companies in BHR’s portfolio is Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Limited (CATL).

Do you notice anything interesting regarding CATL’s share price from the past year?
