The Ghost of Elections Past

A guest post from my fictional time travel character Emma.

October 31, 2017

On this Halloween Day, we are reminded of the words of the ghosts of elections past. Each of these former presidents served the country in the military, and they also were elected to the highest government office in the United States of America. Their voices cry out from the past and speak to all Americans:  President Trump, the Congress, the Supreme Court, our government agencies and departments including the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the Attorney General’s office, the military, and to all the people who are employed by people of the America.

Regarding the rights of the shareholders of the country of America, its citizens, the First Ghost speaks:

“As we peer into society’s future— we, you and I, and our government—must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering, for our own ease and convenience, the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow.”—President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell Address, 1961

Democracy cannot survive the total corruption of our government that exists today. The smelly Washington “swamp,” its politics and bureaucracies filled with greed, perverse behavior, and criminality, must be drained; and the wealth of the USA must be preserved.

Regarding our debasement of the word “Russian” and its alleged connections to one evil act or another, the Second Ghost speaks:

“Among the many traits the peoples of our two countries (Russia and America) have in common, none is stronger than our mutual abhorrence of war. Almost unique among the major world powers, we have never been at war with each other. And no nation in the history of battle ever suffered more than the Soviet Union in the Second World War. At least 20 million lost their lives. Countless millions of homes and families were burned or sacked. A third of the nation’s territory, including two-thirds of its industrial base, was turned into a wasteland…”—President John F. Kennedy, address to American University, 1963

The true strength of America and will be found its respect for the people of other countries. Russia could be one of our greatest allies to create a peaceful, productive and inventive world. America should cooperate with and support all other countries who can be our allies, including the Russian people. 

And finally, regarding the unique national strength of the United States of America, the Third Ghost speaks:

We live in a time of transition, an uneasy era which is likely to endure for the rest of this century. It will be a period of tensions both within nations and between nations — of competition for scarce resources, of social political and economic stresses and strains. During this period, we may be tempted to abandon some of the time-honored principles and commitments which have been proven during the difficult times of past generations.

We must never yield to this temptation. Our American values are not luxuries but necessities — not the salt in our bread but the bread itself. Our common vision of a free and just society is our greatest source of cohesion at home and strength abroad — greater even than the bounty of our material blessings.”—President Jimmy Carter, Farewell Address, 1981

We must end the brutal and wasteful PermaWars and instead use those resources for defense, peace, and to rebuild our decaying infrastructure. America must change its direction. It must be a reflection of its core principles. It must shake off the last five decades of moral, economic and physical decay and rebuild itself as a model country and the leader of a new free, productive, ecologically-sound, and enlightened world.

President Trump: A Scapegoat for the Sins of America

William_Holman_Hunt_-_The_S

A guest blog from my fictional reporter Sam Keene.

October 25, 2017

Those of you who read my column know that I have expressed extreme dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump and everyone around him. I was profoundly disappointed when Hillary Clinton lost her opportunity to become the first woman President of the United States. Since that fateful evening last November, my mindset has mirrored that of millions of Americans. However, I have had an epiphany. Of course, all epiphanies are personal, and as I write my opinion here, I am not attempting to change your behavior or beliefs. I am only telling my story.

What is a scapegoat? With regard to American politics in the year 2017, a scapegoat is a person who serves as a vehicle of repentance, a sacrificial offering to the gods, a metaphoric goat who could be said to represent all the sins of America. The goat must be publicly slaughtered by the all-knowing high priests of the news media, the entertainment industry, and of the government. To save us from our painful recognition of America’s failure, deceit, and corruption, we needed a scapegoat to transfer our guilt. We needed a national sacrificial ritual to free us from our sins. Mockingly, we planted the thorny presidential crown on the head of this marginalized but well-known person and then subjected him to total public humiliation. His physical qualities and his character, history, family, thoughts, and deeds were assassinated for the entire world to see. Our scapegoat was Donald J. Trump.

The virtual blood-letting worked for a time. We attempted to demonize him by connecting him to our former Cold War enemy, the Russians. We accused him of working with the enemy to rig our most important election. This was treason. We listened to every word he uttered and condemned him for not conforming to our high level of ideas and compassion. We called him a buffoon, incompetent, and dangerous. He was the perfect scapegoat. All of our sins could be transferred to him and then washed clean.

He and his people were called “deplorables” by Hillary Clinton. We thought less of the citizens living between the coasts and the people in rural areas who appeared less-sophisticated, uninformed and simple. These sections of America were breeding grounds for the non-elite: the non-thinking, rude and crude people. President Trump represented the leader of these stereotypical racists, homophobes, misogynists, and low-brows who populated the land like mindless, diseased rats. The recognition that we participated and supported the obvious crimes of America was buried deep in our subconscious. Somehow other “deplorable” people were to blame—not us. The blame, shame, and guilt associated with America’s massive thievery and corruption, the perma-wars, the overthrow of governments, the drone attacks, the shootings, and the torture of other humans were suppressed into our collective unconscious. That was not us. We were righteous. We were good, politically-correct, logical-thinking Americans.

We attempted to use the sacrificial goat, Donald Trump, to cleanse our sins, but now that effort is failing. It’s obvious. The entire “Russian collusion” illusion has melted away. Now, we can only call him names. Legal procedures we created are now being used to attack our precious sanctimonious symbols. The Special Prosecutor we created has turned his attention away from Trump, and he is focusing on the alleged crimes of our heroes. The politicians and leaders we believed in are now under scrutiny. The corruption of previous administrations and government representatives that we supported is now being exposed.

I can no longer live in denial. The naiveté of my previous opinions is something I now recognize.  I may never approve of President Trump’s personal behavior, his demeanor, or his self-righteous attitude. But I will now admit he is the duly elected head of the Executive Branch of the United States government. I will view any attempt to remove him from office with caution. This country is navigating extremely treacherous waters. The captain of our ship may be unlikable, but the seas of politics and government bureaucracy are filled with dangerous sharks and pirates. Those who steer the ship of state should not be burdened by a misguided mutiny fomented by elitist subversives and supported by fearful, guilt-ridden and malleable citizens.  I, for one, will no longer support the personal, exaggerated, unfounded, organized self-serving attacks on our president. I intend to use this space to vigilantly report on any people in power who are corrupt, selfish, devious and evil. I will also strive to accurately report on those people who support America in an honest and constructive manner.

BIG, BIG, BIG!!!

Q

I don’t know about you, but I am waiting for Q’s “BIG, BIG, BIG…and it better be big…I mean really big. Are we to believe this cat and mouse game of chicken is necessary to resolve the problems of the world? Trump does this…the Deep State retaliates…Trump counters…the Deep State pulls off another false flag, and so on and so forth, etc., ad nauseum. Watching the hulking Trump walking on eggs makes everyone uncomfortable. He’s a man of action. He should go for it. The Deep State is killing him with their version of Chinese water torture. Drip by drip the President and his followers are going crazy. Isn’t it time to bring out the big guns? Isn’t it time for President Trump to “scatter the CIA to winds”? We’ve been waiting over 55 years for this, ever since President Kennedy briefly saw the light.

Of course, WE know what happened to JFK. Why doesn’t Trump start there? Explain to the world in a televised speech exactly how and why JFK was killed and who killed him. This would be a BIG step in the right direction. Next, he could move on to the topic of 9-11. His full explanation of the players involved and their methodology would be a momentous historical event. Revising history in real time would be the slap in the face the sheeple public needs, and it would put the Deep State permanently on the defensive.

The arrests and trials would follow. The killers of JFK are probably all dead now, but members of the cover-up crew are everywhere in the government and in the media. Many are famous people whose arrests, convictions and trials would provide years of chatter, twitter, and blather for sheeple worldwide. It would be a great “come-to-Jesus” spectacle worthy of President Trump.

And those who perpetrated 9-11? They brazenly walk the streets and fill the expanses of our 65-inch television screens. Arrest them, President Trump, and you will be a hero to almost every person in the world. These wicked criminals should be tried and publicly hanged in front of the Freedom Tower.

You might say that these Deep State people are so powerful that they cannot be taken down. They will retaliate by triggering nuclear bombs across America. They will round-up all the dissenters and kill them. I think not. Trump, via the NSA, knows every move of the Deep State. He is aware of all their plans and activities. Once the Truth Cats are out of the bag, they will hunt down the Deep State Rats and eat them raw.

And Hillary, the Deep State pedophiles, blackmailers, murderers and the rest of them…round them up! Bring them to trial and then incarcerate them in a monumental human zoo called “The American Way” to be constructed in the National Mall between the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building. This will allow citizen-tourists to see that Justice prevails, and it will give the people an opportunity to express their disgust…close-up and in-person.

Forget about “the Plan.” It’s just too difficult and too much trouble. It’s based on the weak concept of pussy-footing around in the Washington cesspool. The American people are strong; they want the facts; they want Justice; they want to take names and kick butt.

Forget about BIG, BIG, BIG. Just do it! Now! Now! Now!
