All warfare is based on deception.
The best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact.
Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.
--Sun Tzu on THE ART OF WAR, the oldest (~400 B.C.) military treatise in the world. Translated from the Chinese by Lionel Giles, M.A. (1910).
A full 2,400 years ago, Sun Tzu wrote his instructions for winning wars on bamboo slats. Today, the Chinese military strategist’s Art of War is a mainstay of military and business school education. Considering the Epoch Times' newly released The Final War and what we’re learning about elections across the republic, it’s time to bone up on Sun Tzu’s teachings.
…when able to attack, we must seem unable.
When using our forces, we must seem inactive.
When we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away;
When far away, we must make him believe we are near.
Silence and keeping people uninformed are timeworn battleground chess pieces. Case in point: The media’s cone of silence over the Hunter Biden laptop story is credited with swinging the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden. Until March 2022, when members of Pure Integrity Michigan Elections began to alert their state legislators to the dangers of the Electronic Registration Information Center, deception by way of silent omission was deployed to great effect. ERIC slithered along under the radar of election integrity watch dogs.
After investigative reporter Jim Hoft and the populist publication, Gateway Pundit, exposed the nose-twisting details of ERIC's receiving voters' private and legally protected personal information--and then sharing this data with leftist subcontractors--Louisiana and Alabama withdrew. Now, other states appear to be waking—though all too slowly—from their stupor.
Perhaps if our legislators had read Sun Tzu, they might have kept their guard up:
Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.
If he is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him.
If your opponent is of choleric temper, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant.
If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them.
Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.
These military devices, leading to victory, must not be divulged beforehand.
Be prepared. Attend MFE/PIME's Zoom at Noon
Join us as we look back at where we've been and forward to where we're going. Learn what others are doing and what's in store. Become more effective at restoring election integrity to Michigan.
Sorry. No press. Members only.
Below is the agenda.
Hope to see you tomorrow at noon.
For election integrity in Michigan,
Patrice Johnson, chair
