A growing number of Woke companies are taking enormous financial hits now! These include Silicon Valley Bank, Anheuser-Busch with its “Bud Light” campaign, Disney, and Target with its rainbow apparel during “Pride month” in June.
Woke: Marxism 2.0 To Destroy The West
In the video below, James Lyndsay explains that Karl Marx was wrong because the working class is not going to revolt against capitalism since it provides prosperity. So, Marxism went through a “gain of function” in the West to become the Woke agenda — recruiting racial minorities, women, gays, etc. who felt alienated.
Marxism evolved to abandon the working class and to destroy Western democracies. Lyndsay explains that this is a pivotal moment in the history of the Western world because the agenda of the globalists is to eliminate nations and freedom to create slavery.
James Lyndsay speaking at the European Parliament on 04/03/2023. This is a great articulation of the Woke Marxist agenda and the threat of the cultural war against Europe.
Four Stages of Ideological Subversion
Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov gave an interview to G. Edward Griffin in 1984 from which much can be learned today. His most chilling point was that there’s a long-term plan by Russia to defeat America through psychological warfare and “demoralization.” It takes decades to achieve but it may be bearing fruit now. Bezmenov made the point that most of the work, was “a slow process which we call ideological subversion, active measures, or psychological warfare.”
Demoralisation of a population
The former KGB informant stated that the Soviet Intelligence Agency used four methods to alter the mindset and behaviour of people in foreign countries. The first step is that of demoralisation which according to him took 15-20 years. During the phase, young people are influenced to question the integrity of a country and raise suspicions through media propaganda and academia. Perception takes the centre stage and facts become meaningless. He attributes it to the lack of moral standards in society.
For a population self-absorbed in a world of propaganda, and theories of Marxism and Leninism, truth loses its grip on the society. The older generation also loses control over the population due to consistent attacks on their moral fabric.
Yuri Bezmenov revealed that the ‘demoralisation’ phase was completed before the interview and the Soviet Union was surprised at the ease of its execution. He also explained how those from the 60s were occupying high positions in the government, mass media, and civil services at the time of the interview. Yuri Bezmenov further claimed that another 20 years would take to create a new generation of patriotic American citizens.
Destabilisation, Crisis, and Normalisation
As per the former KGB informant, destabilisation of a country also referred to as the second step, meant altering the nation’s foreign relations, economy, defense systems. He said that the process takes 2-5 years to execute.
He stated that the Marxist-Leninist hold over the American defense and economic sector was ‘fantastic.’ Bezmenov said that he never thought that the process would be so easy to execute in the US when he landed there in 1971. He highlighted that a country could be brought to a state of crisis, the third step, in a short time as six weeks and cited the example of Central America to make his point.
Coupled with a violent change in power structure and economy, the fourth phase of normalisation is kicked in that can last indefinitely. The word normalisation is derived from Soviet propaganda that seeks to downplay a drastic change in a country as a normal phenomenon. “This will happen in America if you allow the Schumuks to bring the country to crisis, promise people all kinds of goodies and paradise on Earth, destabilise your economy, eliminate the principle of free-market competition, put a Big Brother government in Washington DC with benevolent things,” he remarked.
Yuri Bezmenov reiterated that the US was in a state of undeclared war, against the principles on which it was founded, under the Communist conspiracy. “You don’t have to be paranoid… Unless the United States wakes up! The time bomb is ticking every second and the disaster is coming closer and closer. Unlike myself, you will have nowhere to defect,” he emphasised.”
Here’s how he further defined ideological subversion:
“What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.”
Bezmenov described this process as “a great brainwashing” that has four basic stages….
In what is perhaps a most striking passage in the interview, here’s how Bezmenov described the state of a “demoralized” person:
“As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore,” said Bezmenov. “A person who was demoralized is unable to assess true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I shower him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures…he will refuse to believe it….That’s the [tragedy] of the situation of demoralization.”
It’s hard not to see in that the state of many modern Americans. We have become a society of polarized tribes, with some people flat out rejecting facts in favor of narratives and opinions….
This will happen to America unless it gets rid of people who will bring it to a crisis, warned Bezmenov. What’s more “if people will fail to grasp the impending danger of that development, nothing ever can help [the] United States,” adding, “You may kiss goodbye to your freedom.”

An Instant New York Times Best Seller
A young entrepreneur makes the case that politics has no place in business and sets out a new vision for the future of American capitalism.
There’s a new invisible force at work in our economic and cultural lives. It affects every advertisement we see and every product we buy, from our morning coffee to a new pair of shoes. “Stakeholder capitalism” makes rosy promises of a better, more diverse, environmentally friendly world, but in reality, this ideology, championed by America’s business and political leaders, robs us of our money, our voice, and our identity.
Vivek Ramaswamy is a traitor to his class. He’s founded multibillion-dollar enterprises, led a biotech company as CEO; he became a hedge fund partner in his 20s, trained as a scientist at Harvard and a lawyer at Yale, and grew up the child of immigrants in a small town in Ohio. Now he takes us behind the scenes into corporate boardrooms and five-star conferences, into Ivy League classrooms and secretive nonprofits, to reveal the defining scam of our century.
The modern woke-industrial complex divides us as a people. By mixing morality with consumerism, America’s elites prey on our innermost insecurities about who we really are. They sell us cheap social causes and skin-deep identities to satisfy our hunger for a cause and our search for meaning, at a moment when we as Americans lack both.
This book not only rips back the curtain on the new corporatist agenda, it offers a better way forward. America’s elites may want to sort us into demographic boxes, but we don’t have to stay there. Woke, Inc. begins as a critique of stakeholder capitalism and ends with an exploration of what it means to be an American in 2021 – a journey that begins with cynicism and ends with hope.
The Courage To Stand Alone In Times of Adversity linked to the article below in 2022.
Jonathan Isaac, number 11 on the Orlando Magic basketball team made headlines when he decided not to take a knee and to stand during the national anthem. He also choose not to wear a ‘Black Lives Matter’ t-shirt as the rest of his team did. Reactions since then have been swift and varied. Jonathan share how his faith influenced his decisions. “I am about solutions. When I saw people taking the decision to kneel, I thought the best decision and the best solution is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, because that is how my life has been supported. That is how I have seen countless lives be changed, supported, changed for the better, when it comes to situations like racism. Realizing and understanding we are all made in the image of God is the answer. That is the solution I went with.”
Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac Stood Alone In 2022
In 2020, Black and White Americans across the country and people around the world were joining in massive Black Lives Matter protests about the death of George Floyd at the hands of police on May 25, 2020. In the US Senate, Nancy Pelosi and others “took the knee” in protest against Floyd’s murder. Corporations, including Amazon, rushed to confirm their support of the Black Lives Matter protests which economist Catherine Austin Fitts explains were deliberately destructive of Black neighborhoods to facilitate “fie sales” for rich investors – much as some believed happened on Maui this year!
Yet, one courageous athlete chose to stand alone on principles — both in refusing to join Black Lives Matter protests and in refusing to take the COVID shot. The videos, articles, and book below explain why Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac chose the courage of his convictions over conformity under pressure.
Jonathan Isaac for the first time in nearly seven months was back on the court for a game that counted. Despite a strong performance in the Magic’s 128-118 win over the Nets, it was what he decided to do prior to tip-off that received the most attention.
Before the opening tip of the Magic-Nets game on Friday afternoon, Isaac was the lone member from both teams to stand during the national anthem. Isaac became the first NBA player during the opening three games of the restart who did not take a knee during the anthem in protest of racial injustice and police brutality.
Jonathan Isaac is a force to be reckoned with on the Basketball court. He was drafted 6th overall in the first round of the 2017 NBA draft to the Orlando Magic. He is a man of faith in God. A man of character and integrity. He’s an extremely talented individual both on and off the court. His story is great! Jonathan rose to a different kind of fame when he chose not to kneel during the national anthem for Black Lives Matter.
Instead, Jonathan stood tall because he felt like wearing a T-shirt and kneeling does not go hand in hand with saving black lives. This caused a great deal of backlash from the media, however, Jonathan has remained true to his beliefs. With all that he does, Jonathan does his best to bring glory to God. In recent times Jonathan made the news again for choosing not to get vaccinated. The media again took this information and his personal choice and blew it way out of proportion. They made Jonathan out to be the enemy, except for he isn’t. Jonathan has a brand new book coming out which you can pre-order now.
Why I Stand, by Jonathan Isaac was published on Amazon on 5/17/22 and will be followed by a film.
On July 31, 2020, the Orlando Magic starting forward Jonathan Isaac was the lone NBA player not to kneel for the national anthem amid a league-wide demonstration in support of Black Lives Matter. Standing alone, knowing the scrutiny to come, Jonathan had a peace he at one time never could have imagined possible.
In Why I Stand, Jonathan shares the journey of how—through a series of divine connections and a willingness to follow Christ—his fear and insecurity-driven life was transformed into one of confidence and purpose. From his childhood in the Bronx to his high school years in Florida, from rail-skinny freshman at FSU to top draft pick in the NBA, Jonathan uses his life story to illuminate the freedom and peace found in the love of Jesus Christ.
More than the story of an NBA player’s transformation from man on the court to man of God, Why I Stand is a testament to His love, power, and grace that extends to us all. This book is a discovery that no matter your level of confidence today, God’s strength will develop in your weakness. That courage is found in trusting that God is greater than your fears. As Jonathan takes you through the experiences that drove his decisions, he offers insight and inspiration to help you to grow to a point where standing alone is better than not standing at all.
NBA Superstar Jonathan Isaac explains why he started his pro-freedom and pro-faith clothing brand ‘Unitus’
Why Isaac Created UNITUS
Megyn Kelly is joined by Jonathan Isaac, founder of values-based sports brand UNITUS and NBA player, to discuss his new leisure and sportswear brand, the importance of family, faith and patriotic values, the future of the brand, and more.
Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac is taking the world by storm with the launch of his inspirational clothing brand, UNITUS! Giving “glory and honor to Jesus,” this event was nothing short of epic, featuring a fashion show, live performances by GRAMMY-nominated Christian artist Tauren Wells, dazzling fireworks, and much more!
Despite battling injuries, Jonathan Isaac remains steadfast in his dedication to his faith and fans. Now, with UNITUS, he’s bringing his strong belief in God to life through leisure and sportswear that resonate with his values. UNITUS stands as a beacon of hope, inspiring individuals to embrace faith, freedom, and American values in a world often dominated by “woke” culture wars. Join the movement as Jonathan Isaac’s brand breaks the mold and celebrates the essence of true greatness.
“The basis is freedom. You have companies that are in that field who have made a conscious decision to either attack or undermine Christian values and conservative values,” he said.
In the face of the woke movement, Unitus was born. NBA player Jonathan Isaac, a member of the Orlando Magic, has announced the launch of this sportswear brand based on Christian and patriotic values as a response to the woke takeover in sports.
In the documentary Unwoke Inc., Isaac explained the reason for founding the firm:
“Unitus is a sports and apparel company, and the basis of it for me is freedom. You have companies that are in that field who have made a conscious decision to either attack or undermine Christian values, conservative values, and things like that. And I think they have the free choice to do so, as much as I disagree, but I feel that we also have the freedom to create what we want to create.”
“We can be proud of what we believe in,” Isaac continued. “We don’t have to hide or be ashamed of it. As the day continues to get darker and darker and crazier and crazier — you standing up for what you believe is only going to get harder — but it’s only going to become more and more necessary.”
This is not the first time that the Magic basketball player has shown his opposition to the woke and extremist tendencies. In 2020, he refused to kneel and raise his fist as a symbol of support for the Black Lives Matter movement, as the rest of his colleagues did. Isaac preferred to stand wearing the team’s white jersey.
Pro basketball player, Jonathan Isaac, joins Del for a second time to reflect on his battle with the NBA to stay unvaccinated despite the strict mandates put in place by the league, and discuss a new venture that seeks to inspire ‘true greatness through faith, family, and freedom.
Buckminster Fuller said, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
Vaclav Havel, former president of Czechoslovakia, encouraged people to create a “parallel polis.” This is what the alt media has done. The documentary shows that others are following suit now.
