Apophis will fix Everything

If your attention hasn't been focused on your bit coin futures you might have noticed that the reality paradigm has recently shifted from the end is near to the end is here!

 All of the systems which supported the greed of the military/industrial/complex (MIC) for all these years since President Eisenhower first warned us about them, have collapsed, (much like the Afghan army) under the collective weight of total corruption.  It didn't exactly creep up on us, we've been watching the MIC grow more powerful every election cycle, grabbing more and more control & influence with each step.  You watched this all in slow motion as it happened, knowing it would all come tumbling down; but as with racism, the climate, Fukushima, and so many other did nothing, said nothing and just went about your lives telling yourself you were powerless to make change.  What about Greta Thunberg? Is she powerless?  What she is doing, we all should be doing.  But I digress...the point is, too's showtime!

 Over the last few years, we've witnessed the rise of populist fascist authoritarian leaders around the planet with our own recent nightmare of a national embarrassment being without doubt the very worst example in modern times.  Some men leave a mark in history, this one left a stain; one which continues to expand and do damage even after his removal from office. 

In the year 40 BC there was a Roman general named Crasis who was the "Bill Gates" of his time, as he was called the richest man in the world. Among his many accolades is that he created and operated the worlds first fire brigade.  Sounds like a real humanitarian until you learn that when his fire crews rolled up on a dwelling fire; Crasis would offer to purchase the property outright (at a greatly reduced rate) and if the property owner declined to sell, Crasis would let the dwelling burn to the ground.  Thus we can add to his titles: the father of predatory capitalism

General Crasis is most likely very pleased to see how far we have taken his idea that everyday people are just a crop to be harvested.  His basic philosophy has evolved over the centuries to the point where nowadays the truth is that slavery was never abolished; it was expanded to include every one of us.  The military/industrial/complex understood that if you could control the institutions people relied upon, you could then control the people; keeping them productive but not allowing individual success.  Do this well enough and few will ever realize they only have the illusion of freedom.  The best slaves are those who don't know they're slaves.  Who benefits most from your toil, who benefits the least ?

Everything Trump did weakened and divided us more than ever since the civil war. Trump gave us Covid, and then, as if intentional, he did every wrong thing he could do  to help Covid spread back & forth across America like a firestorm.  While he was robbing everyone blind & filling his pockets, Trump pounded on us like a tough piece of meat, tenderizing us for what was to come by wearing us out at every single turn.

So here we are 18 months into a killer global pandemic that simply won't go away.  Oh, to be sure, science knows how to defeat this Covid outbreak...its just that science isn't calling the play here, politicians are, the same politicians who created the virus, and oddly enough they aren't following the playbook that could end the pandemic.  Its almost as if it would somehow benefit the upper 3% if a few million breeders were to die; but why would they want that and what would it say about them if they did?

 When it comes to the vaccination rollout; I have some questions.  Firstly: After generations of showing us that "they" really don't care much about us "useless eaters" (as Henry Kissinger called the great unwashed masses) Why is our government suddenly so concerned with our health that they are doing everything short of injecting folks at gunpoint  against their will to get the miracle vaccine into every last one of us.  Why is that?  They began with the carrot, offering attractive incentives to those who take the vax.  It struck me as very curious that they use this tactic as they almost never have before.  A week or so later the incentives increased, including being entered into a million dollar lottery, college scholarships, etc.  The VA called me to schedule my vaccine shot & I told them I was holding out for a motor home...but alas I'll not be getting the RV because the giveaway program failed so they went straight to the stick.  It seems to me the most logical answer to "Why won't you get vaccinated?" would be, "Because they want it so badly!!"

"There's a sucker born every minute" ~ P.T. Barnum

If nothing else about the vax is suspiscious to you, how about this...From Day 1-Square 1; America is all about the bottom line, making money.  All the time they scare & manipulate us in order to cash in.  First they scare us, then they always seem to have a product/service or candidate to sell us.  So, why are they now giving the vax away free when they could be banking millions more than is already being made from Covid in general?  If they aren't making a profit from the vax it must follow that it is providing them with something they want more than money.  I wonder what it might be,  ponder that for a minute.

My next question is, why does the government feel it is necessary to demonize the un-vaccinated by saying they are killing people?  Can I just tell you how much that sucks?  Not only is just plain wrongheaded, stupid and cowardly to say publicly that the un-vaccinated are killing people, (including the vaccinated) but in today's post-election America that could set some very ugly things in motion.  If you don't believe political rhetoric can spark violent civil unrest just wait until the vaccinated patriots begin hunting down the un-vaccinated and killing them, in self-defense like zombies.  Next, a 2 part question, what exactly is in the vaccine; & why won't they disclose the full ingredients of the shot?  For the record I for one do not believe tracking chips are in the vax because they track us by our cell phones.  Whatever is in the shot is a whole lot worse than a tracking chip. 

One thing is for certain sure, and that is the drug compaies, hospitals, and politicians are all making a killing off of Covid.  No pun intended.  Billions are being raked in as we the people are once again little more than a renewable resource to be harvested.  Trouble is, there are now way too many of us breeders, so now they are harvesting Us, and at a handsome profit I might add.

They created & released Covid because they needed a reason to inject everyone with this miracle vaccine.  The only question was; What would make everyone want to get the vaccine?  It would have to be something very scary, and nasty.  Next question, why is it we got hammered every day with a daily Covid death count right up to the day Biden took office?  Why did the daily dead count stop so suddenly?

Another good question is,  What's up with the booster shot thing?  First they said it wouldn't be needed, then they said some might need it, to today when it was announced everybody needs a booster 8 months after their first shot!  Changing the mask mandates back & forth; changing protocols brings me to another question worth asking at this point.  Why should we listen to, much less believe anything the government says?

 Nothing says insanity like mandating proof of vaccination to enter public venues, then making the official vax card way too big to fit in a normal wallet!

 Another casualty of the pandemic/quarantine is our collective sense of social equilibrium.  Take 18 months of lockdown and manufactured cognitive dissonance to obscure the facts; season liberally with fear, apprehension and a dash of doubt, then simmer in solitude until the paralysis of analysis brings original thought to a standstill.  The result of this confectionary is that we're all feeling socially unbalanced when we go out, and especially when we meet up with old friends we haven't seen in a while.  It's an awkward situation and becomes even more so if either mentions how awkward it feels.

Our sense of the world is off-kilter, we don't know exactly what's what anymore.  Not only is everything changing (Failing), but the changes (Collapses) are coming faster than ever before as all the corporate rats of the military/industrial/complex abandon the ship of state they scuttled, with all their loot & booty: leaving the rest of us to fend for ourselves and die!  Nothing is the same as it was, and it ain't coming back, ever.  Welcome to the new normal.

With so much intentional dis-information about Covid variants like Delta & Lambda, it's so hard to make confident critical decisions.  I'd like to touch base with a friend I haven't seen in a while who is also a vet and I'd love to have him over during this PTSD heavy week...the thing is, I don't know if he is vaccinated, what his risk status is - nada.   This is Covid, not Blackjack, there is no feeling lucky here.

The military/industrial/complex controls everything in American politics.  It controls which senators get the powerful appointments, which judges get appointed to the supreme court, who sits on the appropriations committee, who gets to run for president, and who gets elected.  The electoral college is their failsafe insurance against the will of the people.  There is a story going around for many years now that goes like this:  When George W. Bush was selected president, after the swearing in ceremony, his father and a small group of unknown suits took him to see something.  What they showed him was a video of the JFK assassination in Dealey Plaza from an angle perspective never once seen in public.  Then HR said to W, "Any questions Mr. President?"

The big issue with the military/industrial/complex is always control.  Control over every level & aspect of whatever catches their greedy eye.  They control things to the extent that they always get what they want...nothing comes before profit, nothing.  Well, nothing that is except getting away Scott free with their plunder, and that's where the false flag alien UFO invasion gets rolled out as a giant smoke-screen diversion to cover their escape to whatever secret underground hideaway they call home. 

 Our government just can't stand to be without a soul-less enemy of freedom to war against, and with abandoning Afghanistan we're fresh out.  Once again they will return to the tried & true tactic of occupation/exploitation following some horrendous orchestrated false flag event attack on us. This time however there is a twist; instead of us invading another failed country for fun & profit, its planet earth that gets attacked and occupied by hostile aliens.  Think that's absurd?  Ever see a drone swarm show?  How about a gigantic drone swarm show over multiple cities which incorporates holographic imaging and programmed lasers; and of course some very real explosions and casualties on the ground??  Lots & lots of casualties.  This is their escape diversion to keep us occupied while they sneak away, zero accountability.

The island nation of Haiti just got hit with a second massive earthquake amid widespread social chaos, and a bloody war, also known as the trifecta!  It's a similar story all around the ring of fire as the frequency and power of quakes are increasing dramatically.   A massive mudslide took out most of a small Alaskan town.  Water levels in the American southwest are so drastically low that on many lakes & rivers the boat marinas are all on dry land...hundreds of feet from the current water level.  If you want to inform yourself shitless, just google American drought images. 

Unless you have taken quarantine to extremes you may have also heard about the number of raging wildfires in my home state of California, and the relentless heat waves on both coasts.  It seems that things are this way everywhere because when a system fails, every aspect of it fails-no exceptions.  People  have been trying to get us to save the planet for over 30 years, they were ignored.  Even if we started doing everything the proper way, around the planet tomorrow at 8:00 AM sharp, and took drastic measures to reverse the damage; it's too late, at this late date it would be like trying to stop that Alaskan mudslide after it began going.  

Nothing says insanity like the seafood industry harvesting radioactive crab & fish from the ocean, then selling it to us to eat.  Ever since the nuclear plant at Fukushima Japan melted down 10 years ago the Japanese government has been dumping all the radioactive coolant water directly into the Pacific ocean.  That is in addition to all the radioactive material spilled into the ocean by the disaster itself!  The oceans of Gaia are all connected by the ocean conveyor current which circumnavigates the planet; which means All oceans are now radioactive.  The radiation kills off the smallest and most fragile life forms first; which would be krill, which most other ocean life feeds upon.  Between the radioactivity and starving, before much longer there will be no life in the oceans at all.  Do the math.

A favored tactic of the military/industrial/complex has always been to obfuscate the subject of the moment, say climate change for example.  As the major polluter on the planet the MIC has always sought to silence critics by turning the subject into a controversy of belief rather than facts.  From there is easy to just pay goons to keep stirring the pot & clouding up the issue until the final, inevitable collapse happens.  If you turn off your devices & screens for a minute and listen intently; you can just about hear the creaking sounds of things coming down.  They will say "It's only the summer crickets" then tell you to go shopping.  

Last week the United Nations released their IPCC climate report, listing all the various current threats to our planet. In summarizing the report, the UN said things worldwide are so bad that it represented a "Code red for Humanity." The military/industrial/complex doesn't enjoy much influence at the UN and there was little they could do to keep global media to cover the story.  Just remember that belief cannot change facts, but facts should change belief.

You can ignore reality if thats how you roll, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.  Our collective discount rate is coming home to roost and it cares not a whit about our collective cognitive dissonance, won't slow it down a bit!  Those consequences are not coming; they're here.  For verification, just watch any decent newscast, any day.

Ever hear of "Agenda-21"? ... Well, we're living it!

Trump released 5 thousand Taliban prisoners before leaving office, I wonder what they've been up to since their release?

As a Vietnam veteran, I was beset with a disquieting feeling of Deja Vu upon watching the Taliban take over Afghanistan.  America doesn't win wars anymore, no profit in that, we just bleed everyone dry for 20 years then bail when it fails; abandoning everything we took there and everyone who helped us during our occupation.  It's our signature move.

The Taliban just inherited a shit-ton of prime military equipment including aircraft, helicopters, armored vehicles, a few thousand M-4 assault rifles (never fired, only dropped once) and a few million rounds of ammunition...making them one of the best equipped forces in the region. The abandonment of Afghani translators, is exactly identical to when we lost the Vietnam war, so why not repeat the cowardly policy once again. 

The definition of insanity is requiring Afghan interpreters applying for emergency visas to leave the country before the Taliban kills them; to apply from outside of Afghanistan !

First Vietnam, then again in Iraq and Afghanistan, and even Libya: Over and again its  what we do... occupy, create chaos, grab the loot & scoot.  As if they still have learned nothing; they're gearing up even now to do it all again in Haiti, now that it has been softened up by two massive quakes and a bloody civil war.  Here we go folks, it's Deja Vu all over again.  Its almost as if "Nation Building" has nothing to do with why we keep doing this to small, unstable & failed countries.

Former Afghan president Hamid Karzai fled the country just hours before the Taliban took over completely, saying he was leaving to prevent bloodshed...leaving with so much loot it all wouldn't fit into four cars, he had to leave some behind.  How many Afghans who are now dead could he have fit into those four cars?

Mark my word on this; before its over the badly managed disaster that is the escape from Kabul will make our departure from Vietnam look like prom night.  The taliban and Isis-k will want to send a which nobody will ever forget.  My guess is they won't wait long to begin sending that message.

Nobody will ever trust America again, but then it doesn't matter because we're in the endgame scenario now and in the future they are rolling out, America will be a wasteland and nobody will be sending troops here to help: oh for sure, foreign troops will be here, but helping us ain't in the agenda.  Time to start wearing your most comfortable shoes!

Nothing says insanity like holding the Olympics in 
radioactive Japan during a global pandemic.

For as long as I can recall Americans have been totally fine with the philosophy of "Fake it till you make it."  Just jump right in up to your knees and go for it, let your passion push you to success kind of thing.  For a time it seemed to work, at least for some here & there.  Ultimately though, both corporations and politicians realized there was far too much work involved, so they changed it up a bit by cutting corners, cheating and stealing to where for the last 25 years its been more like "Fake it till you break it."  What we're witnessing, and living thru right now are all those cash cows coming home to roost.  Everything is breaking down because they pushed things till they broke.  Thats what happens when the entire system is designed for profit and planned obsolescense.

There is an image burned into in my head from the evening news just a few days ago. It was a short video clip of a woman and her children fleeing rising flood waters, all of them wearing Covid masks, and the world in the background was on fire.  In the future to come, we'll call days like that Wednesday!

We're going Backwards folks; and we are rapidly approaching TEOLAWKI

                                                  "It's not enough to listen, it's not enough to see                                                     When the hurricane is coming on it's not enough to flee.

                                        It's not enough to be in love, we hide behind that word,                                                                            It's not enough to be alive when your futures been deferred."                                                                              ~Harry Chapin~ (1977)   *

 Leading experts from Sir Isaac Newton to the late Stephen Hawking have proven that Humanity is doomed.   It's just a matter of when and how.  Most tend to conceive doomsday as a singular event catastrophe such as a meteor impact, or disease like the bubonic plague. In truth; the end will come as one system after another fails; and humanity is gradually brought down by not one, but several overlapping disasters which we did not prepare for or defend against, like the death of 1000 cuts we've been living/dying thru these last 45 years.

 In 1555 Michel de Nostradamus published his famous book of predictions called The Prophecies" in which he wrote about events in future history which then later came true.  It is the second best selling book of all time after the Bible.

 Although Nostradamus often wrote of world leaders and various disasters; he never really mentioned doomsday directly in his book.  In fact he only mentions the end of the world once; in a letter to his beloved son Peter, calling it The Universal Conflagration.  He went on to describe a multi-stage catastrophe of epic magnitude; citing economic upheaval, and a broken treaty leading to a massive battle between "East" and "West."  

Nostradamus wrote to Peter that the end of the world would come in the form of "pestilence, and war more horrible than has been known in three lifetimes...and famine."

Nostradamus left these clues in the letter to Peter: "A new era will begin just before the end"~"There will be a great abundance of fire and rocks falling from the sky and from that event 177years 3 months and 11 days later by pestilence, long famine and wars humanity will end. Nostradamus put the date as April, 2190.

 That first clue rings a bell.  Not long ago some thought that 2012 would be the end of the world but as others of us reminded them, the Mayan long count calendar was marking the end of one era and the beginning of a new era.

As for the fire and falling rocks from the sky, I suppose we can be glad we haven't seen that, so far, because when it does happen it will not only be very bad in and of itself, it will also start the clock for the final countdown to our end.  Just think of the times we are living in as a kind of sneak preview of coming attractions... 177 years early!  There is no shortage of dire warning signs, they are simply everywhere for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear, and a brain capable of critical thought.  There is a road back from the brink of destruction.  We can work together to undo the damage wrought by the military-industrial-complex, greed and even climate change up to a point.  We could agree globally to end war, to work toward peaceful, sustainable solutions for future generations.

 We could do those things, and even more, but we won't; it's just not in our nature to matter how great the need.  I think that on some inner spiritual level most folks can see where all this is headed, and they know from long experience that the fix is in and nothing is ever going to get "better."  Deep in their subconscious mind they sense the kind of doomsday Nostradamus described as the Universal Conflagration, not a single event but rather a domino effect of overlapping disasters.  I think the average person IS aware of these realities on some level, I also think they don't much care anymore.  Our species discount rate is evidence enough of that!

 Alas, Nostradamus' prophecy will fall on deaf ears because nowadays we only listen to the profits called margin and motive.  That's OK though, because in the end, Apophis will fix everything.  Nothing short of an extinction level event, the impact will be global in its implications.   Not even able to adequately deal with the cascading events right now; who ever is left when it hits is totally on their own.  We've seen how our government deals with disasters, whether natural or of their own making...not very inspiring.  Apophis will set the clock back to zero sum gain, and instantly all men will be equal, for a while. 

 Having been degraded, softened up and broken by the death of a thousand cuts, humanity simply will not have what it takes to overcome such total devastation.  With the oceans radioactive due to Fukushima, all seafood will be deadly toxic, Farming will no longer exist so there goes the food chain, doesn't matter, no delivery system, no stores.  Those still alive after Apophis will have to acquire food the old fashioned way and then fight to keep it.  Brave new world.

"While the Rest of Us Die"

Waiting to Exhale


Since the election results were confirmed, a semi-euphoric wave of premature relief has swept across America and the world; in anticipation of a new year and a new president.  As we know from every horror movie we've ever seen, such relief is seldom warranted.

 Anyone who has been paying attention these last, long four years could have predicted what unfolded at the nations capitol on Jan. 6th.  Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear could see the red flag warning signs...there were so many.  Any student of our political system could easily see the storm building; and a great many of us did, hobbled by an unshakable sense of being helpless to stop it.

"There will be an orderly transfer of power on Jan. 20th, and the fight continues!"                                          ~Donald Trump, Jan. 7th~

 Like a cloud of voracious locusts Thousands of  StormTrumpers swarmed the nations capitol after their beloved cult leader whipped them into a feeding frenzy with his litany of oft-repeated lies mixed with distorted semi-truths tailored to his agenda.  This was Trump's "plan-B"- used in desperation after losing every election related court case and vote recount.  It was a well planned, very organized para-military operation.

 The ringleaders were peppered throughout the 8000 strong mob storming the capitol building, calling out orders to different cell groups.  We now know they had a very specific agenda...They were actively hunting Speaker Nancy Pelosi, VP Mike Pence, and Chuck Grassley, president pro-tem of the Senate...the next three people in line of succession after the president!   The Maga mob came equipped with a functional gallows, and several of them carried handcuffs and zip-tie restraints. There is a video from inside the capitol during the height of the mayhem, showing the mob attempting to gain access to the chamber where the votes were being counted.  The audio is quite clear as the woman shot caller had a bullhorn, and said to the mob: "So, people should coordinate together if you're going to take this building."  Hmmm.

As is always the case, in the days following the assault more & more information, videos, and personal accounts are surfacing.  We're getting a more complete picture of what happened, and increasingly that picture is getting uglier by the day, its also developing the very familiar stench of conspiracy.  This was an inside job. 

 An organized mob numbering  over eight thousand with radios, weapons, Zip-ties/handcuffs and floor plans, swept into the capitol building and simply overpowered the meager force of capitol police officers.  Some of these cap-cops were filmed opening doors for the mob, and in at least one case, took selfies with members of the Maga army.  This happening while another cap-cop, Brian Sicknick, was being beaten to death by the mob.  Very early on in the assault of the capitol someone anonymously phoned in two pipe bombs, found at the nearby RNC  &  DNC Headquarters: almost as if to draw law enforcement away from the capitol building. Just like the gallows, these pipe bombs were fully functional. Three days after the assault capitol police officer Howard Libengood committed suicide.  Hmmm.  Currently there are 15 incidents of capitol police misconduct being investigated.

 The capitol police department is larger than some large cities with around 2300 active duty officers.  How come on Jan. 6th 1900 of them stayed home, leaving just 400 of their Brothers-in-Arms to face down the violent hoard of 8000?  I wonder what Officers Howard Libengood and Brian Sicknick would have to say about that!  

Meanwhile, capitol police officer Eugene Goodman damn well better get the fullboat sky blue hero treatment.  Goodman is the African American officer seen in video clips tricking the Qanon leader & many others into following him, away from where Mike Pence and many congressional members were attempting to gain safety...into a hallway where more cops were waiting to deal with them.  If a few more like Goodman had shown up for work that day it might have made all the difference.  From now on I'm just calling him Black Panther!

Members of congress were completely on their own for 90 minutes before the first help arrived.  90 minutes?  What were all the cops doing for that long?  Watching a movie maybe?  So, let me get this straight...the white house declined help offered from several nearby police departments.  An angry, violent mob of eight thousand is storming the capitol and the word comes to "stand down"? No assistance required, "We got this" came the reply!!  Same story with the National Guard; they weren't called for support, not even to protect the lives of those assembled within the building counting electoral college votes!!!

 When asked why not, white house spokesman said that they were concerned about what kind of "message" it would send when the world saw images of National Guard fighting with [white] protestors.  Really?!?  I find it very strange indeed that they weren't at all concerned with those issues during the peaceful BLM protests, having as they did, hundreds of National Guard soldiers in formation on the capitol steps that day.                                     

 Reports continue flowing in that the mob included as many as 30 active duty cops and military personnel, including the retired Air Force col. in flak vest, helmet & carrying zip-tie handcuffs.  How can those who have sworn to protect and serve consciously partake in armed, deadly insurrection against the very country they are sworn to defend?  This doesn't track at all, unless it IS an inside job.

 On Jan. 5th; GOP members of congress gave guided tours to some visitors at the capitol complex who were exhibiting suspicious behavior and seeking unusual access...was this a Maga recon mission?  Things that make you go Hmmmmm? It is worth noting here that the capitol building suspended ALL public tours due to Covid-19 protocols back in March last year...then there is the fact that these same suspicious people were among the mob the next day.  So, which GOP Senators gave the tours, to whom, and why?  Inquiring minds want to know!  Our capitol is a massive concrete labyrinth with 5 floors, 540 rooms and 850 doorways.  Its so confusing even some rookie members get lost now & then. Like I said, Inside Job.  

The Boston Globe reports that congressional aides complained on Jan. 6th that all of the emergency "panic buttons" had been removed from congressional offices!! What???  That is almost as incriminating as building 7 on 9/11, so why is the story not getting as much air time as we gave Trump?  Boy, the stench is getting thicker.

Among the cascade of questions floating around the insurrection, perhaps the most salient is this:  Where exactly is Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, and why hasn't he  spoken a single word about the biggest crime any president has ever committed??  The one official who should be leading the charge is AWOL, Why?

 Social media was used to promote the Jan. 6 rally on the ellipse, (just 16 blocks down Pennsylvania ave. from the capitol) so the claims we're hearing now "We didn't see this coming" are even more cowardly and evasive than they were on 9/11.  That dog don't hunt, never did.  Didn't see it coming?  Maybe they should read their memos, because according to the Washington Post; A letter or memo had been received by congress on Jan.3rd, warning of possible civil unrest at the capitol during the electoral college vote count!  What were they waiting on, Nostradamus?  Exactly identical to 9-11; "We didn't see it coming because we ignored intelligence briefings."

The rally had been promoted on several social media platforms for several  weeks.  The excuse they didn't see it coming is so lame it insults our intelligence.  They're so perniciously blasé they don't even bother coming up with a decent lie.  That's how little they regard the rest of us.

 In the Better Late than Never Department; social media wasted little time in deciding to permanently ban Trump  from platforms across the spectrum in response to his inciting insurrection.  Have you ever played chain reaction or  falling dominoes where elaborately created designs are made by standing dominoes on end; then pushing the first one over causing a cascade destruction of the creation?  What we're watching now is kind of like that.  Donald Trump shot himself in the foot while attempting a bloody coup; complications set in immediately, compounded by his arrogance, amplified by his ego, the wound will eventually prove fatal.  Good riddance.

 Now, several days after the capitol assault, across the planet everyone is dumping Trump as if he had Covid-19 or something: move over Typhoid Mary, here comes Covid Donnie for your place in history.                                                                    

 Indeed, Trump being banned for life from all social media is a gift to the world, but especially to us Americans.  For the world at large the last four years have been like having your neighbor's car alarm going off 24/7 - for us Americans its been like being IN that car!  Quality of life just got noticeably better; however we may soon discover that the ban just drives him to underground dark web platforms where he can orchestrate his agenda in real time without censorship.  We may have just traded the constant annoyance of Trump tweets for the dread conjured up by his silence.  Good trade.

 Everybody saw this coming, most of all the StormTrumpers!  As he stoked the fires of insurrection Trump told his disciples to march on the capitol, to fight for their country and that he would be right there marching with them...and they believed him.  Instead of leading his army into battle as he had just promised, when the time came he hastily retreated to the safety of the white house, where he proceeded to watch with great glee the mayhem he had created. 

 Five hours after the insurrection, after conferring with Trump, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani left a voicemail for Senator Tuberville, but sent it to the wrong person, who then shared the recording with the press.  In the message,  Giuliani is heard pressuring the Senator to object to every state as the roll was being called to count electoral ballots, in an enhanced effort to bog down the process as much as possible, and stop the count.  That is what was on Trumps mind in the wake of the assault he ordered up!

Trump issued his invitations to the 2021 white privilege jamboree at the capitol, promising it would be Wild, and over 8000 Maga StormTrumpers responded, looking for a fight.  For their part, those charged with protecting the capitol and representatives on the day the electoral votes were being counted might as well have laid down a red carpet.  A handful of white shirted cap. cops is no match for 8000 fired up rioters, which is why all offers for aid were rejected & the national guard never called in.  This was an inside job, straight up.  Somebody let it happen.

 Do you suppose there might have been a somewhat different outcome if it had been 8000 Black Lives Matter supporters swarming the capitol?  You're damn Skippy right it would have ended different, the body count would have been soul wrenching.  I rest my case.

 Picture if you will; Donald Trump cowering terrified, and isolated in the white house, watching his empire falling apart.  Twitter and all other social media platforms permanently ban him. Republican sycophants jumping ship like so many rats, losing support on all fronts, lost prestigious golf tournament, Deutsche bank dumped him like he is radioactive. Because he is!  Nearly all the rats have jumped ship, sources say Trump is isolated, alone in his white house inner sanctum.  Now would be a good time for Ivanka and Melania to pull a Laverne & Shirley.  He needs to loose everything.

Any hunter will tell you how dangerous it is to press a wounded, cornered animal.

 We're seeing a whole new side to Donald Trump and its name is desperation: as he struggles in vain to conjure a way to remain relevant & out of jail.  He doesn't dare shift his focus away from that, lest his tiny, damaged brain thinks about the caravan of lawsuits lining up to take a shot at him while there's still something left.  Speaking of left I wonder where Melania is?

 Trump aides are now saying he is alone, isolated in the residence and does not understand the historic and long term international ramifications of unfolding events.  He is said to be very angry and cares only about how the second impeachment will affect his Brand!  Just great; we now have an angry, bitter, wounded psychopath barricaded in the west wing, with the nuclear codes...what could go wrong in a week?  Trump's ignorance, stupidity and ego have been on display all along; and every step of the way we allowed Mitch McConnell to act as his enabler, protector and fluffer-in-chief.  Lets all hope that Mitch is scared enough to do the right thing and convict the prick this time!  Did you see how fast Lindsey Graham back stepped into Trumps arms after other republicans became worried "the mob" might go after anyone who betrays Trump, like Mike Pence for example. 

                                            Mafia Don   

Trump emerged from the white house on Jan. 11th  for the first time since the attack.  As if to demonstrate how far gone his mind is; he arrogantly said that many people, including many experts and people on television had read and analyzed his speech on the 6th and said there was nothing wrong with it...without citing a single actual source (Same as the phone call he was impeached over.)  That little peek into Trump's dementia is all we need to affirm that we are now very deep in uncharted territory.  We're beyond the help of history, we've never had a president this demented, deranged & dangerous.  William Shakespeare called it the undiscovered country, the future.  Well we're there now and none of the old maps can help us, We the People need to create new maps to guide us thru this undiscovered country: and if WE don't create them, someone else will, and trust me, you don't want that. 

What makes Trump so dangerous is his total disconnect from reality; combined with his toxic narcissism.  He really believes he can do anything he wants without accountability.  He even told us exactly that four years ago.   When asked about being impeached for the second time, Trump said "Being impeached again could anger my followers which could be very dangerous for the USA especially at this very tender time."  The following day, after refusing to invoke the 25th amendment to remove Trump from office immediately; Mike Pence said, "I urge you and every member of congress to avoid actions [impeachment] that would further divide and inflame the passions of the moment."  No matter how you slice or spin it, those are threats!! The classic Mafia "protection" racket, specifically.    Of course Trump said he would not be attending Biden's Inauguration; He's already shown us numerous times what a coward thru and thru he is, and he sure doesn't want to be caught up as a victim of his own insurrection.

 Some GOP members say they feared for their families lives if they voted for impeachment, and AOC was afraid that some of the GOP members she was sheltered with during the attack would phone her location to the mob...that says all we need to know about what has become of "our" political system.

Repealing Reality

So...the quisling GOP and their newly discovered consciousness calling for "unity" is not only BS, it is gutless, self-serving BS.  If you condense all the GOP objections to the 2nd impeachment down to their core element; it translates closely as "We should just ignore what Trump did since he has only 6 days left in office."  As if he's actually doing anything resembling his job!  We must also factor in that they aren't really protecting Trump as much as they are salvaging whatever's left of their collective careers.

 Those lame, pathetic republicans urging to NOT impeach again showed themselves to be a morally bankrupt, non-serious, infantile pile of slugs totally incapable of governing a wet dream.  They deliberately refuse to acknowledge that in both life, and the dictionary, Accountability comes before unity and consequences come before healing.  The only things they excel at are the art of obfuscation and deception.

Now we're daily being '
reminded' of the on-line jungle drums beating out the call to arms, and ongoing threats for massive violence in all 50 state capitols...I guess the powers that be CAN see this coming; judging from the images coming out of DC with the capitol looking every bit like a war zone.  Where was all this precautionary security on the 6th??

One thing is for certain, the Jan. 6th assault was just the opening skirmish in a race war that many on various 'sides' have been working long & hard to ignite, the first round in a 12 round battle.  The actors have all been given their scripts, the props and cops are all in place; it's almost show time.  Jan. 6th was just the trailer, the feature length movie begins soon, very soon.

 One week to the day after the capitol assault, Trump was impeached for the second time.  He wanted to set records as a leader; well he got his wish.  History will remember him as the only American president to be impeached twice, and very likely the first to be convicted.  His new brand, "Pariah."  On the evening of his second impeachment, Washington DC has been turned into the Baghdad green zone, a military no-go zone; swarming with troops and cops of every sort. Tonight military troops are bivouacked inside the nations capitol.  That hasn't happened since the civil war!  There are currently over 25 thousand troops in DC, more than are in Afghanistan & Iraq combined! with 9500 National Guardsmen streaming in as well.  ...  All to protect the American people from Donald Trump!

The Future of Free Speech

You can ban trump from social media, but you cannot stop him from holding rallies without shredding the concept of free speech.  Yes, most of us understand the rational limits of free speech, but Trump doesn't, and he doesn't care that he doesn't understand; and as we've repeatedly seen, mafia Don doesn't learn from experience.  He will continue to touch hot stoves because he craves the attention it gets him.  Just like those rallies.  Mark my word: He won't be out of office very long before he holds a Mega Maga March, or rally somewhere, he has to, his ego is addicted to the attention & adoration, much more so now that he lost Twitter & Facebook. 

 Yes in his battle to remain relevant, and the kingmaker of the former republican party; Trump will whine about & demand his freedom of speech.  He will continue to promote hatred and violence.  He will continue promoting his core lies in order to incite violence against his perceived enemies with zero regard for legal consequences.  We already know this because we've been paying attention.  So, what to do?  We simply cannot permit citizen Trump to flagrantly disregard reasonable limits on the freedom of speech as the whim may strike him.  He already believes he is above the law in a class of his own, we simply cannot show him he is right by ignoring future violations of the law.

 Trump thrives on chaos, that's why he creates it every chance he gets.  He exploits, promotes and incites lawlessness because he cannot win playing by the rules. 600 Trump rallies in 4 years will get you some sedition and insurrection.  From here on he's only gonna ramp up the rhetoric, the hate and the volume in future White Privilege Jamborees.  It's conceivable that since Trump is the leader of the Maga army [his words] the government might classify him as a domestic terrorist and try to ban future rallies altogether, but that gets real messy real quick.  First his army of disciples would go absolute ape shit; and second, banning his future hate rallies just makes his case for him while decimating the very concepts we hold so dear.  Perhaps in their infinite wisdom leaders of the not-so-distant future will simply do away with free speech entirely.  It will be the platform Don Jr. runs on in 2024.

Meanwhile across the country, you may have noticed that the Covid-19 vaccine rollout is in Full-Goose-Fubar of hands here; who didn't see that coming?  Would you care to guess why the rollout is so Fubar??  Its because Mafia Don never funded the program for distribution and delivery. Trump pocketed that money, flat out stole it!  To cover the theft he simply promised 50 state Govenors that there was a huge reserve of vaccine doses which was of course yet another lie.  

His total inaction from the begining of the pandemic enabled Covid-19 to get a strong beach head in the country resulting in hundreds of thousands dead.  He didn't do contact tracing, or any of the other things that should have been done.  Then he promoted drinking bleach to kill Covid, and began attacking the leading virlogists in the country. Worst of all he politicized the wearing of virus masks and PPE, resulting in his followers flaunting the precaution.  I wonder how Ben Carson feels about  it NOW.  

Christ, this is like trying to trying to run a tub full of bathwater without using the drain plug!  Feeling he could still do more; Trump ensured that his rallies would become Covid petri dishes, and for added value he was directly responsible for not one, but three Covid super-spreader events at the white house.  Then he got the Covid himself, but the virus gave him a pardon.

So, yes indeed: convict that rat bastard on his second impeachment charges in the Senate; followed 12 hours later by his execution via military firing squad, that is the penalty for High Treason, right?  For extra emphasis the government should freeze & seize all Trump assets, then use the proceeds to fund the vaccine program.  This should be done immediately because there will be a long line of folks who will be suing the Don, so we must move fast before his bones are picked clean. 

Speaking of stealing; it now appears that the Donald is looting the west wing on his way out.  The same day Trump's moving van showed up, his aides were filmed leaving with a large bust of Abraham Lincoln. 

 Sources are today reporting that Trump is playing merry hob trying to retain fresh legal representation for his upcoming Senate trial and the parade of civil & federal lawsuits lining up in the wings.  It might have something to do with him stiffing Rudy Giuliani for nearly a half million dollars in fees incurred while pursuing the multitude of legal challenges to the election.  Or maybe its fallout from inciting sedition & insurrection.  Maybe its a bit of both; but my guess is its because some people are just so toxic that even lawyers won't touch them.

Remember the marathon protests & civil unrest in Portland and Seattle not long ago?  All that was a dry run for the 2020 election, aka, Jan. 6th.  Conversly; Janurary sixth was a dry run for something much bigger and nastier soon to be rearing its ugly head.  You might want to stock up on a few necessities ahead of the inauguration just in case supply lines get disrupted...just sayin.  

          "We must learn to live together as brothers, or perish together as fools."                      Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ~ 1971

238 years ago, near the end of the civil war there was a planned coup by the continental army over the issue of unpaid military wages and unfunded pensions for soldiers.  confederate sympathizers in the congress circulated an anonymous letter in the army base at Newburgh, New York.  This letter suggested that the soldiers should take unspecified action against congress to resolve the pay issues.  On March 15 1783, George Washington gave an address to the soldiers at the army base.  It was an emotional appeal to the soldiers to not tear apart the fabric of our very young nation, he plead the case for reason and restraint.  Washington's Newburgh address is so powerful it was made mandatory reading for all American military officers.  Maybe the address has wisdom we could use today as we face this country's greatest challenge ever. [linked below]

 Its been an agonizingly long four years since Donald Trump lied, bullied and intimidated his way into the white house.  From day one it has been a ride on the roller coaster from hell.  For 1453 days we have struggled against cognitive dissonance and held our collective breath in disbelief as Trump doubled down on the insanity with each new scandal, crisis or treasonous act.  As we near the end of Trump's reign of terror, our minds are reeling and our lungs are burning.  We are waiting for it to be over so we can at last exhale, to bring in a fresh new breath of air, and we are, for the most part, hopefully  optimistic... and as we know from every horror movie we've ever seen, such relief is seldom warranted.
