Lawfare – As Discussed on the Tom Renz Show

So this Substack is a bit of a cheat. It is a direct adaptation/copy of my show description from my Tom Renz Show on the America Out Loud network that posted on January 27, 2023 (listen here). I am reposting this here because I think this is one of the most important shows I’ve done. Winning the fight for American freedom requires we take a different approach. It isn’t just law, it is lawfare. That is why I am doing the show and all the other “non-lawyer” things I do (radio show, podcast,, etc).

Call me a hill-billy, ignorant, or whatever you want, the risks of losing this fight are far too high for me to take half-measures. We are already seeing the issues with people “dying suddenly,” election fraud continues, and things are moving ahead with CBDC and other issues. If we want to win, everyone needs to participate and understand how to fight. You may not like the fight but fighting is not a pleasant thing. Despite it being glorified in Hollywood, a real fight for freedom like we are undertaking is ugly and, if we lose, we lose our freedom.

So without further ado, below is the discussion of the show and I hope you also take the time to listen and tune in at 6PM Monday through Friday on or on iHeart Radio at

Recently a listener reached out to me and asked why I resort to name-calling, particularly calling McConnell, #EDLeaderMcConnell. Firstly, he’s the #EDLeader because his response to everything is flaccid at best; he is weak, ineffective, and a complete sell-out. I am a God, family, country guy, and, as you know, a lawyer and fighter. The war we are battling must be fought on multiple fronts; I call my strategy, lawfare.

The truth of the matter is that we won’t win this fight by just filing lawsuits; trust me, I wish it were that easy. Unfortunately, we must fight within the media and political landscape as well; this is lawfare, a three-pronged attack: legal, media, and political. I own what I do and readily admit (much to my wife’s chagrin) that I am ridiculing the enemies of freedom. While this should be beneath me, there is a reason for my approach.

Saul Alinsky, arguably the closest thing the left has to a hero, published his ‘12 Rules for Radicals’ in 1971. I know what you’re thinking; why on earth am I sharing Alinsky’s work? He was Obama’s mentor, and a Satan worshiper (who dedicated this publication to Satan, no, I’m not joking), so let me explain. We can’t bring a knife to a gunfight and expect not to get shot. There are many things I would never do in his book because they are just wrong. However, there’s much we can learn from studying the tactics of our enemies.

Rule #5: “Ridicule is a man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense; It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude, and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.”

People come up to me frequently when I am at speaking events like the ReAwaken Tour and ask, “what can I do?” This is it; this is what you can do. You can join me in attacking these disgusting, corrupt, evil monsters that are trying to destroy our freedoms. Klaus Schwab, George Soros, and yes, Mitch McConnell are just men, and I want the regular, God-loving, hard-working patriots to understand they CANNOT be viewed as being on a pedestal; in fact, they are beneath you.

The atheist parasites trying to rule this world have sacrificed what is right for money and power and do not deserve your respect and certainly should not be feared. They don’t deserve to be treated as anything other than what they are, human excrement. By calling them out for the trash that they are, it is my hope that other “regular people” like me will cease saying, “what can I do” as though they cannot hope to fight against these monsters that are simply men.

Rule #6: “A good tactic is one your people enjoy. They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones. (Radical activists, in this sense, are no different than any other human being. We all avoid “un-fun” activities, and we revel at and enjoy the ones that work and bring results.).”

I understand turning the other cheek, but there’s a difference. If you are sinning against ME, I can turn the other cheek; if you are attacking babies and innocents, pushing vaccines that kill them, I will fight to the death. Revenge and justice are different things, and justice is moral; Jesus did not ask us to stand aside while unjust actions occur if you find me calling Mitch McConnell the #EDLeader funny, great! I really hope you do, and I hope you share it and make #EDLeaderMcConnell go viral. Rush was the greatest at tweaking the left, and these communist, globalists, who are literally trying to kill us, deserve to be exposed and ridiculed for the monsters that they are. I will continue to ridicule, and I hope that my tweaking of these arrogant people is enjoyable for my brother and sister freedom warriors.

Rule #4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

The left sets standards that are impossible, and some of these tactics are critical to understanding so we can use them against the enemy. Don’t forget where we came from; our founders defeated the largest empire in the world. While the British lined up in pretty rows in their fancy uniforms, the American Revolutionaries decided they weren’t going to just stand there and get shot at; they won by changing how the game was played.

Rule 1: “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a plentiful supply. Government and corporations always have a difficult time appealing to people, and usually do so almost exclusively with economic arguments.)

One of my favorite quotes of all time is from Eleanor Roosevelt, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

Refuse to give these scumbags power; to my brothers and sisters listening, quit asking what you can do and just do it. You have the power to fight these people; they are just people, they are not special, and they are not magical; they are absolute garbage. Tyranny is an allusion; power is not what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

They are the enemy of God, America, and Freedom. Stand with me and call them out for what they are.
