Unite or Die

File:Unite or Die.jpg - Wikimedia Commons

I posted an article showing the differences between President Trump’s and Biden’s inaugural military salute. The differences were clear:

  1. 4 cannons for Trump and 3 cannons for Biden.
  2. Firing sequence (timing and number) was different.
  3. Location was different (Capitol for Trump and Arlington Cemetery for Biden).

What did some of the readers focus on? This was part of a Qanon conspiracy. I don’t follow Q and initially saw this information on Gab. What did I expect from our side?

  1. The proper protocol for this event: number of cannon, number of shots fired, location and firing timing.
  2. Cogent comments
  3. Comparison with other inaugurations. Obama’s inauguration 21 gun salute was at the Capitol.

What did I get? The same old tired diatribes that only serve to divide us. For instance:

The 4th cannon was in for maintenance, and two were borrowed from the Marines current front line inventory.

But the 21 gun salute that Donald Trump received hours earlier had 4 cannons:

Here is Obama’s inaugural salute at the Capitol with 4 cannon:

I have said before that this site presents information for your consideration and analysis. How would you rate the performance of comments on all posts? It could be that many readers are just trolls trying to mislead us. It could be that we will continue to divide our side and keep losing. It could be that our readers who comment do not have a high level of sapience.

Harsh conclusions? I have never sought anyone’s approval: consider the name of this site. I am used to attacks for trying to make people think but I hoped the rewards for the country would be worth it if I (we) could expose some truth. It appears that I have failed.

So how do you want to proceed?

  1. Shut the site down. The money and time that I spend would be diverted to buying food for people in the coming Dark Winter.
  2. Eliminate comments.
  3. Monitor comments and delete those comments that are not constructive (in my opinion) similar to Twitter.
  4. Step up and submit comments that address the issue, ask cogent questions and provide links to support any conclusions.

The enemy is laughing at us. If we continue along this path, we will only see more defeats. I will close with this saying that was the reason I stopped following Q years ago:

The sky is purple. You have everything you need.

The above saying is one that I made up. However, we do have everything we need to fight for what is right. I am not saying that we will win. I am definitely saying that you can do better than attack the messengers since we are being attacked by the enemy also.

I am just now being a regular at your site. I ask, don’t shut down. There is a lot of good stuff here. I am also trying to unite people and have to deal with, let’s call them stubborn, people. But it comes with the territory, it comes with the effort, it comes with the cause. It’s going to be a long hard road, but someone has to do it and it will be worth it in the end. There are a lot of us quiet folk out here, and what you do helps us. Keep it up. Please.

David, comments are a good thing. People may disagree with your analysis of what you see, such
as the number of cannons or what that means, etc, but please don’t take it personally. You need to know what people are thinking. There is great sadness out there and great anger, but it is not directed at you. Keep reporting, keep reviewing, but keep cool.

As for me, I no longer see the US military as “white hats”. The military industrial complex has taken them over. The soldiers are fine men and women but those giving the orders back Biden. Biden will let them fight those endless wars that cripple and kill those fine soldiers but puts money in the pockets of his supporters. Trump stood against that so he had to go and he’s gone.

Wisely said Johanna, thank you. Hello David.
I found the following information yesterday. I had buried it away last spring without fully reading it. I read it last night because someone had asked me for my research on the topic. In light of what has just happened to Dr. Buttar’s close friend, many need to understand this. I cannot assume that everybody knows, because Dr. Buttar obviously didn’t.

It’s a lot of information to take it. Please store it, print it out, and read it asap.

I will not be at all offended should you remove this comment. In fact I ask that you do it!

I also know the solution to the problem -- you have my email details.

I heartily agree with Tevans. I very much appreciate your work, David. Your articles, and Wes’, are extremely useful and informative. The comment section will always have it’s dissenters and contrarians, but perhaps, their arguments can be used to sharpen our own understanding.
Regardless, I echo the thoughts of many of my colleagues here. It would be a loss to lose NCRenegade.
By the way, your email alerts are bountiful and help to to parse the daily barrage of events.

I consider myself a deep thinker. Certainly well past 1st level thinking. I used to believe (about 11 -- 12 years ago) that there was a political solution to the ills of our country. My wife and I became Tea Party members (unofficially) and marched in D.C. in ’09 and subsequent years at the state capital here in Georgia. Always peaceful. We learned over subsequent years that things were so broken and corrupt that it was a useless effort to try and change things at a federal level. I continued to vote in all elections, local, state & federal but, not feeling good about it. Then, during the term of Trump, we found out just how bad things were. How far things had evolved to the point that every one of the alphabet agencies had been infiltrated and most of the politicians were filthy with Chinese money.

In recent months, since 11/3, we dared hope that there was some movement by POTUS to arrest and try all the traitors and bad actors only to find out that more than likely, it was all a big psyop to keep us waiting and hoping until the great reset.

I’m sorry if what I wrote seems off topic from your post, David. It’s just that how many canon salutes with Beijing Biden vs. the last 2 presidents, whether purposeful or not, just doesn’t seem like a big whoop at the moment. If they are disrespecting him with that, ok, good for them. IMHO, I see it nothing more than noise (pardon the pun) at the moment. Do I still hope something may happen, yet, but that hope in what may happen is but the smallest of slivers right now.

I realize I did not answer you in a previous post where you asked me if I had given up. The answer is a resounding NO!. I will not list here and quantify that answer as I know this site, and other like it, are being monitored by those corrupted alphabet agencies. We know that from the recent visit by one of those agencies who went out and spoke with Wes.

I’ve been a reader of this blog for several years now. It takes a bit of history to draw some conclusions and one of mine is that you need to take a well deserved rest, David. Honestly, you sound angry and sensitive to things right now. (they say it takes one to know one).
The site is valuable and needed. There are just a lot of upset patriots right now still processing all that has gone on. Some are perhaps expressing themselves accordingly and venting via being a keyboard warrior.

Keep the faith brother. I hope you don’t mind this long reply and my straightforwardness. I don’t mince too many words these days.

Your site is very appreciated, informative and important IMO. Option 2 or 4. Option 3 if you want to play baby sitter to people who just look for something to dispute when they have nothing to back up their arguments. You don’t need that aggravation nor, I guess, have the time for.
Ask folks that reply with consenting view points or just want to be argumentative that they provide a link to back up their statements.
You provide links 98% of the time and the other 2 are a short personal opinion on something.
My wife comes to me ranting about something she has read on the net and I keep teller her to try and verify before believing the massive amount of crap floating around.
Concerning Q, I stopped believing in that theory a long time ago.
Again people, try to verify the info you tak in.
Keep up the good work. A lot of folks appreciate you.

Your blog is one of the few worth reading these days. Please don’t lose heart and shut down!! Your presentation of the data had us talking around our dinner table last night. There are many possibilities, including the possibility that God Himself is orchestrating events to give us a clue.

We are to encourage one another, even more so as we see the day approaching. People who do not like your blog should not read it, end of story. They shouldn’t try to make it their own blog by toxic comments. There are other blogs. Maybe delete toxic comments, or have one of your close friends go through comments to screen them to take the burden off of yourself; I don’t know. But please don’t give up. I get the impression that you are a real believer in Jesus and most of those have quit blogging.

We The People has to get united, at least 3 percent of us! As I have mentioned the Rothschild’s network has been around for over 400 years and deeply rooted in our government and banking system. Too bad we have so many UNINFORMED citizens, very sad because there are all resources for one to educate and inform self.
And yes I do agree that by voting nothing can be solved. We have to follow our founding fathers and our constitution! PERIOD!

I value your site immensely. Its your sandbox, your toys. You dictate what is to be and not to be. I suggest if possible introducing a thumb up or down option in addition to a clear “that was useless” boilerplate response from an admin, all subsequent responses on that post would be closed.

People use the TLDR option to disregard a post’s intent then reply anyway. I found myself this morning in a similar boat, having not read a technical brief entirely I missed a key point that would have saved a few peoples time. I skimmed it, thinking I knew what was being said. Preconceived notions of the data set resulted in the wrong conclusion.

We should all be way more intentional about posts. Think before you type. Don’t allow passions to skew reality.

A higher standard is required. No more ass grabbing as the term goes, (still don’t understand that one) We the readers appreciate the site. So far comments have been pretty good. At other sites like yours comments have devolved into a hatefest. This site has amazingly been free from that so far.

If comments get too stupid, shut them off. Ask CA about that. Also don’t be hesitant to set out the tip jar.

You’re being trolled brother! PLEASE do not let these people fool you! Some are scared to comment bc REALITY comments get you looked at and put on lis and whatnot. You saw how that went down if you’ve been here w/Wes home.. I personally am fed up with the lame laws being enforced while others, MUCH MORE important ones(Constitution/Bill of RIGHTS) are being trampled and ignored! Crazy and sad! They are creating an illusion w/BIG Tech pc “not supposed to exist this type of machine for 15-20 years”, ” IT EXISTS NOW!! Hence election…
They/big tech will portray illusion to calm us “all will be good now, it was your mean leaders fault ” BS! They/big tech are now also letting the stocks go up nicely even though we’ve been through covid🤔(for now they are) illusion!! THEY Letting crypto climb Fast!! They/big machine can sink it when THEY feel like it also!! THIS IS CYBER WW3 of 2021!!
They play games in all comments! ALL PLATFORMS!
Then we also have “Our own” Using our tax dollars and saying “it’s for our domestic terrorists problem, so they spy on US” as cities are rioted, burned, looted and overtaken completely by Goons they won’t stop it, but cover it up or call it “peaceful”.THIS IS SEDATION!!! I have seen people falling too!! I am sure you all have watched the division! I agree a third party will make it worse…idk! Just seems to play right in the pesky bastard hands tho.. THEY have stomped us and been a step ahead always so far!
WHO DO YOU TRUST FOR NEWS NOW? This is one of my favorite spots for info! They watching all of us regardless. If your too worried to speak, we’re very screwed! They have already won this!

THEY/Big machine is scooping all these algo of Stuff you’d never believe they know about you… this comment too! THEY ARE ALL IN ON IT! I have no clue where to start and yeah I see the division being EASILY caused with trolls that have very high tech info from all the spying they do, they use these stolen data to start shit, especially having that very big brother to help only them have this type of knowledge. I wish I knew more about computers, obviously I don’t! Not scared though bc I’m doing nothing, NOTHING Illegal! THEY are!! Clear as day..
QUIT BLAMING Q AND those SUPPORTERS, QUIT BLAMING LEFT VS RIGHT, QUIT BLAMING RACE, QUIT BLAMING COPS, QUIT BLAMING ANYONE WITH DIF OPINIONS, QUIT BLAMING OLD SCHOOL CONSERVATIVES, QUIT BLAMING GOP, QUIT THINKING THIS IS ONLY ABOUT GOD ALSO AND HE’S GONNA STOP THIS SOON, PLEASE! I am praying like crazy too and asking for Guidance! This is on us and our kids future! I love listening to opinions and appreciate you not censoring. We are not them! If trolls, I WOULD DELETE THEM!
I can’t type on here for crap… So, i hope it’s understandable! Take care of your family and neighbors 💪🇱🇷 **THIS IS MY OPINION**🙏🌎

David,
I watched the videos of the 21 gun salute yesterday evening and needed time to process. I know zero about military decorum despite serving. My best guess is the inaugural 21 gun salute was forgone at the Inauguration due to unfounded fears of “terrorism.” Instead a 21 gun salute was done at Arlington that has different standards and procedures related to it being a national cemetery.

I have learned much from NCRenegade in nearly a decade it has provided me comfort knowing I’m not the only one. I’ll gladly contribute funds regularly.
Yes, we need to unite and you are contributing greatly with this site. Most do not comment, I rarely do. The ones who comment negatively are a tiny minority.

Keep perspective and keep uniting us.

I realize that the comments, and spam / trolls, have been an issue for some time. I imagine it does get tiring dealing with it. It also sounds like the WP tools for dealing with it are less than ideal. I understand your frustration but unfortunately I don’t have a solution suggestion for you. Perhaps some of the other prominent bloggers out there do and you could ask how they’ve dealt with it as I am certain they have the same issues.

As far as the comment you mentioned about the 4th cannon being in for maint, it seems like it grated on you, while I read it as either a crack pot comment or one written by an automated troll bot, neither of which is worth getting upset over.

I do think that sites like this one serve an important purpose, one that is only becoming more so, as the push to “control the narrative” and silence opposition to the loony left becomes more intense.

Keep fighting the good fight.

I completely agree with unite or die, but that includes ALL zAmericans. This is not really a fight between right and left, this is between all citizens of the workd and the globalists and their puppets. Both the left and right have been programmed with different ideologies to keep them divided. I also believe the differences you are seeing with this inauguration have to do with the fact that The New Workd Order has already taken over all countries. All leaders have taken their titles off of their Facebook pages and labeled themselves as “Politicus” it is time to stop falling into the trap of being distracted by fake elections and other things while these monsters steamroll through with their agendas. Biden is a puppet he is not in charge at all. We are now occupied by a globalist communist regime and you are being conditioned with armed soldiers at state capitols. I am sure they will eventually be replaced by UN Peacekeepers to keep the military from revolting. Wake up this is a war for all humanity and we have to heal our differences and work together.

Unfortunately what you are dealing with here David is human nature. It never changes. We are the same today as when we first fell into sin. There is truly nothing new under the sun in that regard.

Knowing that, it is just easier to accept that you will always have humans roughly divided along thirds. One third is on one side, one third on the opposite side and the remaining third goes however the wind blows them.

Almost every huge event in human history has happened because of a very small percentage of people, NOT majorities as a rule.

If I remember correctly it only takes roughly 10% consensus tops to totally transform anything. Once that figure is met it then becomes automatic as it progresses.

So what you are doing here is building that 10%.

Ignore the rest. Let them do as they please. Many will never change and just blow with the wind their entire lives.

I saw a meme the other day and loved it.

I’m speaking in english and you are listening in BS. I prefer I’m speaking in english and you are listening in stupid.

David, you are speaking english but you cannot change how it is heard.

Keep up the good work. When the time comes, God always has enough of his people to do the required job. You are preparing and strengthening God’s people.

Please let us know if there is anyway we can support you. Is there a way to donate to the website?

In addition, I will try to keep all my comments focused on analyzing your posts.

You are experiencing nothing but human emotion and reaction. “Confusion” blows off as “Order” is put in. Do not bother with the confusion, but continue to put Order in and it will come right.
We are dealing with Tyranny and it’s companion Insanity. Blood may very well flow in greater quantities than that seen in the Antifa skirmishes so far. We may abhor violence but it is the human condition and will probably come our way if We fight or if We surrender.
John Adams said the “Revolution” occurred in the minds of the colonists years before 1775, that in 1775 was merely the outbreak of hostilities. This discourse on your site is the Revolution and needed to chart our future course. It is important though aggravating..
