¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 In another blog post I speculated that Trump had high level “handlers”, involving organized crime and a cabal of bankers – going back decades. It is unimaginable that he would be a free agent as POTUS. Yet, this speculation is now absent from any media – right, left, or independent. His bondage to bankers was detailed in a Frontline episode in the fall. His organized crime connections have also been reported. But, NOWHERE are there articles about these connections acting on him while POTUS. Only connections with Trump’s associates and Russians is given great coverage.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Nor do I see articles speculating that we are within a SLOW COUP. The worst is that all has become unglued and there is chaos. What if this chaos is to mask an organized coup? There may not be a 2018 fall election, or it may be rigged. It has been noted that Trump is a disabler and disrupter. He frequently inserts a new bomb into his tweets to deflect attention away from the main news theme at the moment. But this is thought to be Trump, acting alone.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 There are isolated comments about how Trump is influenced by the last person he speaks to; but this is never followed up. Who decides who speaks to Trump? Can Trump’s tweeting be orchestrated?
¶ 5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 The total frozen state of Congress is much more than gridlock. It is as if the GOP are mesmerized. This is far, far from “natural”. The decades long story of the rise of this GOP needs careful study. Was it orchestrated, and by whom? ALEC is but one arm of manipulation. It is more than lobbying by individual corporations or special interests – it had foresight and strategy.

What are the intentions of the cabal and coup? Probably a cluster of objectives. Getting rich or gaining some personal power, for many. The literal destruction of the USA as a main, global power appears to be one of the objectives.
¶ 7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0 Is Donald Trump a highly manipulated “Manchurian Candidate” ? Trump’s unique mental condition probably makes him highly susceptible to suggestions from key sources. Trump’s own erratic tweeting can be tolerated, and useful to his “handlers. His tweets may actually be monitored and censored.
¶ 8 Leave a comment on paragraph 8 0 I thought I witnessed Trump being manipulated a few days ago. The very first TV reports of his Trade War tweets also included reports of his being unhinged, and a strange meeting with a man and woman. Their names were given, and I think there was a visual of the man holding a can-like object. Commentary was that they were unscheduled, but had seen The President before. The TV coverage made no connection between this visit and his Trade Wars announcement – other than that meeting preceded the announcement.

Since then there had been no mention of the meeting. I devoted a hour trying to search for this information, but have been unsuccessful. I am not a competent online searcher, especially since Google changed its algorithms.
¶ 10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 I am highly uncertain about coming events through 2018. I speculate many scenarios other than the fall elections – which appears to be the limit of media discourse. But beyond media (left, right, independent, etc.) there seem no – zero – mention of this. Everyone seems hypnotically locked-into an “established” story-line. There are wildly different versions of this story-line, with reversals of heroes and victims.
¶ 12 Leave a comment on paragraph 12 0 1) The total absence of any criticism of Russia or Putin by Trump, even as his government increases its pressure on them. I am unable to accept that Putin/Russia is the primary force behind Trump or the coup using Trump. (although they may be part of it). Can this be attributed solely to blackmail potential Putin has over Trump?
¶ 13 Leave a comment on paragraph 13 0 2) The total absence (in all media) of the real potential of the success of a coup. Everyone appears unable to “connect the dots”, even in speculation. I don’t believe it is there, but they fear to go public. Their myopic focus is on winning the fall elections.
¶ 14 Leave a comment on paragraph 14 0 Given the investment made to get the GOP and Trump in power, it is reasonable to assume they “will do anything” to remain in power. A false flag incident to launch Trump with emergency powers and postpone the fall elections – has reasonable probability. Yet, zero action is being taken to resist this.

3) There is no longer a “final decider, “court”, in the USA. Any ruling can be ignored, and there are no sure channels for appeal. PURE POWER RULES. Yet, the visible & invisible opposition to Trump/GOP appears dependent on the “rule of law” prevailing; a very dangerous assumption.
¶ 16 Leave a comment on paragraph 16 0 Larry/nuet’s take: Humankind is a PHENOMENON” in existential/epistemic transition. The perspectives from each personal wrld is incapable of comprehending this “whole”. Our wrlds use “causality” as a mode for organizing information. However, “causality” is a feature of human woven wrld, not of the “phenomenon” of humankind.
¶ 17 Leave a comment on paragraph 17 0 Every report I read seeks causes to explain events. Yet, each cause, examined exists in a sysnet of other causes – where each exist in a deeper systnet of causes – with no end in sight. Blocking, fixing, creating “causes” are NOT the only agency humans have; but we believe these are our limits.
¶ 18 Leave a comment on paragraph 18 0 I must bring closure here. Exploring our positive options is beyond the scope of this essay, or any singular essay. My intent here is to alert you to the many delusions within which we are embedded and to suggest that there are positive alternatives.
¶ 19 Leave a comment on paragraph 19 0 However, these options are only potentials in the ongoing phenomenon, and may not “just happen”, as we wait. It is only from our collective, creative agency can a new pattern emerge within the phenomenon. Not that we will “cause” this shift, as an event in the history of humankind. Rather, we will influence the direction of “flows” to converge in weaving the emergence of new patterns – where “emergence” is a process of the phenomenon, beyond and distinct from transformation (seen as a sequence of cause-effect events).
