Horsefeathers. The role of US president is defined by the Constitution, which states in the oath of office that the US president must "preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution. That's the only requirement.

The Legitimate President

The evidence is clear. Courts must use the broad discretionary powers with which they are vested to enjoin Donald Trump, an illegitimate president, from taking office.

Hillary Clinton is the rightful President-elect of the United States. NOT

Case in point. :cool2:

Why not just declare himself King, and do away with Washington DC and politics altogether.

I do know that Peter Thiel is on Trump's transition team, and doubtless has his ear. Peter Thiel is a known admirer of Neoreactionist (NRx) and "Dark Enlightenment" political philosophy, which DOES hold a very solid contempt for democracy, and moreso for the academic, media, and cultural elites that, along with the permanent political class and civil servants, hold the real power (due to their ability to control public opinion). _https://theawl.com/the-darkness-before-the-right-84e97225ac19#.vtkk3yakk

The Valley is famous for its impatience with formal politics. Rarely, however, is this as bluntly articulated as in Peter Thiel’s 2009 statement — gleefully cited by Land — that he “no longer believes that freedom and democracy are compatible.” This is an incredible statement from someone in his position, and extremely telling. Even if Thiel is the only Valley titan brave or stupid enough to venture that opinion in public, one can be sure that many more privately agree. Anti-democracy, however, doesn’t need to be this explicit to be effective. Valley oligarchs don’t need to be convinced that democracy is the root of all evil, they just need to think that our existing democratic institutions are illegitimate or just not sufficiently optimized. Uber, in its campaign against New York City mayor Bill DeBlasio, was successfully able to argue that they were the true bearers of popular will against a government beholden to special interests and incapable of delivering service. Uber can give the people what they want, faster and better than the state. If there needs to be a vote, customers can do it with their wallets.

Nick Land, like Moldbug and many other neoreactionaries, typically shuns the term “fascist.” Admittedly, they have some good reasons to do so: despite NRx [scientific] racism and authoritarianism, its political economy is closer to Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore than Hitler’s Reich. Yet there’s a problem. Land is an elitist, more loyal to IQ than ethnicity, and with a marked contempt for the “inarticulate proles” of neoreaction’s white nationalist wing. But Land himself notes that it’s precisely these “proles” that make up most of the actual “reactosphere,” and that “if reaction ever became a popular movement, its few slender threads of bourgeois (or perhaps dreamily ‘aristocratic’) civility wouldn’t hold back the beast for long.” It’s entirely possible that reaction never does become a popular movement — a new economic boom, for one, would do a lot to soothe the disaffection on which it feeds — yet if it were to grow, the proposed alliance of convenience between the tech elite and an intransigent white identity politics begins to look a lot like the Nazi coalition of German industrialists and a downwardly-mobile middle class. That doesn’t mean it’s “fascism,” a term both so broad and so particular as to be all but meaningless these days, per se. But in the twenty-first century, it may be that the Dark Enlightenment is what we get instead.

In the "Session 10, December 20" thread, piliangie posted (thanks) this which shed light on the rather insane, anti-Trump phenomenon I've mentioned here and has had me so curious.


BERNHARD GUENTHER JANUARY 17, 2017

Here’s the thing from a basic Jungian perspective: Trump is your shadow, America, a reflection of your unconscious, especially concerning people who identify themselves as Leftist, Liberals, and Progressives, their own shadow which they never deeply acknowledged, and hence project outwardly at the “other side” in their “holier than thou” political correct attitude, over-estimating themselves and dreaming to be awake.

The self-inflation, narcissism, greed, the “bigger is more,” the “quantity over quality,” the entitlement, the hypocrisy, the drive for recognition and fame, the “best” in the world, the bully, the “money can buy everything,” the racism and sexism, etc…..or anything else you despise in the man….it’s all you, buried in your unconscious. It’s also the shadow side of the “American Dream” and obviously reflected in America’s Imperialism.

It’s About You!

Anyone who identifies him/herself as “Liberal,” “Progressive,” “Leftist,” and projects disgust, hate, or anger on to this man, (really anyone who is triggered/irritated by Trump beyond political identifications), or reacts with fear, sadness, worry: you are looking at your own shadow and it won’t go away if you keep up with these reactive projections and look for external solutions or a different “leader” to follow or project your “hope” onto while still believing in the religion of government (which feeds off of the polarization and perpetuates separation consciousness) based on illusory tribal/national identification and adherence to/worship external authority constructs.

Moreover, nothing will change but will in fact reinforce the schism as long as you keep identifying with any side because it defines the other side. One cannot have the one without the other as long as you feed and play into this game of fabricated false duality which is exactly how Empire controls you – all entirely based on illusory socially/cultural conditioned identifications and beliefs which you are so attached to and define yourself by. It’s the basis for population control and social engineering, reinforcing the Stockholm Syndrome and “invisible” slavery/prison out of your own “free will.”

But here’s the real “shocker.” Trump is actually your “teacher,” for he creates more friction and shadow triggers, hence more potential to wake people up from an esoteric alchemical perspective (Clinton would have been the sleeping pill for most people, even though she’s the more dangerous psychopath, hidden behind the mask of a “woman”), but only if people take back their projections and engage in some serious and sincere soul searching cutting through their programed socially/cultural conditioned identifications to ignite the alchemical fire within.

Any negative reactive emotion you have towards the “man” (including his silly tweets) or his supporters is a sign of giving away your power and life energy (literally). It shows you where you work is when it comes to basic Jungian psychology of shadow work until you can come to a place of non-reactive zero-point consciousness rising above fabricated duality and tuned into your true inner power and guidance, connected to Spirit and the wholeness of nature: a sovereign embodied Individual.

If you do that sincerely and go deep, you will finally stop believing in and supporting this religion of government (that was never, ever in place for the people and never, ever can give you true freedom), and realize that it was never about Trump, Clinton, Sanders or any other authority statist puppet to begin with, stop this silly idea of “voting for change” and fragmented mechanical/programmed search for “external solutions” and “leaders, worship of authority and then really, really question everything you believe in and have been told/taught, and most of all drop and let go of your identification, which just feeds the polarization. This the path towards a true shift and evolution of consciousness. Anything else is just going in circles, re-arranging the furniture and tapestry of your prison cell (you are not aware of), instead of breaking out of it.

And that is not a comfortable (internal) process at all for it entails utter disillusionment and taking full responsibility without blame and externalizing. Nobody can do it for you and nobody is going to save you. It takes tremendous humility and sincere self-honesty facing the lies within, which make up your conditioned personality, which is not who YOU truly ARE but mistake for you real Self. It’s much easier to project outwardly, protest, look for the next leader and keep up with the futile idea of fragmented “activism,” new “systems” and “external solutions,” all based on the fragmented male aspect of consciousness (your inner unconscious tyrant projected on Trump) removed from the wholeness of the feminine aspect of consciousness (nothing to do with gender) that is tuned into the wholeness of nature.

In the end, America got the president it “deserved” and when you act like slaves, looking for a leader/savior to follow, you get masters…and always will, as long as you support and believe in the religion of government, regardless what system is implemented. Also “democracy” seems like such a good idea until you don’t get your way, right? (oh, I forgot, it was the Russians messing with the election…right, of course….whoever you want to blame and keeps you from looking deeply within into your own shadow).

That’s just on the surface 3D level. From a hyperdimensional perspective, all the anger and disgust, anything projected on the “man,” the polarization, protests, revolts, hypocritical speeches of statist celebrities about “empathy,” “equality,” and “protecting truth,” engaging in this unconscious shadow dance and reacting mechanically (and programmed) is exactly what the occult Matrix overlords and Empire want you to do and feed upon. In fact, that frequency is all they are after for it strengthens your slavery and sustains them, no matter what puppet they put in place for you to identify with or project anger on. It’s the old game of divide and conquer…and the Matrix has you.

Carl Jung

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul. Everyone carries a Shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate.”

Neil Kramer

“At every turn, the synthetic culture of Empire implores us to throw our hearts and minds into unconscious polarization. It wants us to radicalize ourselves to either patriot or terrorist, believer or atheist, white or black, liberal or conservative, strong or weak, and then embark on an endless crusade to reform, condemn, or destroy the other side. This one-way polarization renders all participants impotent, regardless of which side they pick. This subtle but devastating trick deactivates our will and we automatically forfeit our capacity to rule ourselves. Lost in unconscious polarization, we serve Empire.

Mass culture is a control mechanism that devalues the individual. It is aimed solely at promoting collectivism. It seeks to enforce the dependence of the individual human on a collective group and the priority of group ideologies over individual life paths. It is, at the base level, the very heart of socialism, communism, fascism and totalitarianism. It employs nationalistic impulses to setup polarities of antagonism that exclusively benefits a set of ruling elites. At the top level, the elites fully comprehend that there are no distinct nations, ideologies or cultural imperatives to speak of. To them, there is only power and no power.”

When one is habituated to see the things behind, one is no longer prone to be touched by the outward aspects – or to expect any remedy from political, institutional or social changes; the only way out is through the descent of an [embodied] consciousness which is not the puppet of these forces but is greater than they are.”

Facebook blocks RT from posting until after Trump inauguration
Published time: 19 Jan, 2017 01:16
Edited time: 19 Jan, 2017 09:33

RT has been blocked from posting content to its Facebook page. The ban, according to the Facebook bot, will last until Saturday 10:55pm Moscow time (2:55pm EST) and will extend across US president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.



A misplaced live streaming rights strike during RT's broadcast of President Obama's final press conference seems to have triggered the ban.

RT’s Head of Social media, Ivor Crotty, said “the live-rights strike seems to be part of an algorithmic failure to acknowledge rights acquired by broadcasters, and we hope it will be resolved in the short term.”

“While Facebook is a powerful distributor of live-streams it is struggling with the rights ramifications. RT will continue text-only posts to Facebook until the issue is resolved,” Crotty added.

President Obama's final press conference was carried live by multiple news networks on Wednesday. RT's stream was interrupted by a Facebook bot notification that rights had been claimed by a local Russian publisher.

12 hours since the block, RT has not received any mails from Facebook to its page admin confirming this was the case.

The manager of the "News, Media and Publishing on Facebook" Group responded to an RT post on the block, saying it seemed RT had rights but that the only option was to submit to Facebook's management system.

This is the first time RT has been blocked from posting to Facebook. Here is the image of our post to Facebook and of the chat with Facebook Media, News & Publishing group.

Real reason the District of Columbia personnel are panicky, might be because without residency in D.C ,there is no binding contract.
Maybe, by refusing the devils living room, the actual corporate CEO contract, has to many loopholes?

The power was designed and is maintained with residence within the State of New Columbia, anyone not within its borders is not bound by the rule of its narrow and limited influence and, what an interesting idea that is!

And accordingly, He may be a very, very real threat to the powers that be, more so than most of us can even imagine. This entire situation is so new, that anything could happen, but assuming
Trump has an actual plan/agenda..how it will play out , outside the corporate management district of Washinton D.C will probably be the
Most fascinating thing that has happened here within the past few hundred years.

Placing the Elite in their own FEMA death camps they build for people like us should be bittersweet. I can't tell what kind of plan Trump has in store, but that one would certainly be in mine :evil:

SummerLite,

I think this is this gives us a lot to think about. It is kind of what I am seeing in this whole "show". No wonder the Cs say there are too many "variables". We are variables and 4DSTS are thrown into the formula as well.

It reminds me of America's image for many years now as The Ugly American.



So far I would not be surprised if they don't provoke Russia to the point of reaction by a false flag or give them no way not to react. But there is also the extreme Islamists card too. It is probably wiser to sit back and watch the show.

RT is reporting that they got blocked from Facebook and now also from Tweeter! Dataminr, Tweeter's tool for news agencies, has blocked RT. They say Tweeter hasn't offered an explanation yet, but that they have made reference to "a review of how we work with government agencies". You don't say!

Here is another funny thing:

http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/read-george-hw-bushs-apology-for-missing-donald-trumps-inauguration-w461734

George H.W. Bush Writes Note Apologizing To Donald Trump For Missing the Inauguration: 'It Likely Will Put Me Six Feet Under'

Former President George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush won’t be attending Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday, January 20 due to health reasons. The 92-year-old sent the controversial Potus-elect a letter apologizing for their absence, explaining the couple – who are both being treated at a hospital in Houston — will have to miss the festivities on doctor’s orders.

“Dear Donald, Barbara and I are so sorry we can’t be there for your Inauguration on January 20th. My doctor says if I sit outside in January, it likely will put me six feet under. Same for Barbara. So I guess we’re stuck in Texas,” his letter, dated January 10, read. “But we will be with you and the country in spirit. I want you to know that I wish you the very best as you begin this incredible journey of leading out great country. If I can ever be of help, please let me know.”

Trump replied to Bush's letter via Twitter, tweeting on Wednesday: "Looking forward to a speedy recovery for George and Barbara Bush, both hospitalized. Thank you for your wonderful letter!"

That's a very curious choice of words. He could just have said that his health did not allow him to attend; he had no need of saying "if I'll go I'll probably die".

These details, along with the National Guard chief being asked to leave his position at noon on Friday, would make me think something was going to happen - if I was conspiratorially minded, that is. ;) Then again, if something big did happen, that would violate the rule that says that the big moves of the PTB cannot be easily predicted. :whistle:

Taking a closer look at Trumps cabinet picks, Senator Jeff Sessions for Attorney General, if confirmed, could bring a lot of misery to Americans. There are several articles on the net that that highlight his views and it seems the man is an Authoritarian who vows to uphold “Law and Order”. His track record on civil liberties is frightening!

[quote author= The Bauman Letter]
Draining the Swamp?

Donald Trump’s nominee for U.S. attorney general, Senator Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., has been widely praised in some quarters. National Review calls him “a sensible pick that promises to restore some integrity to a Justice Department tarnished by eight years of Obama-administration lawlessness.”

In fact, Sessions is an avowed enemy of individual liberty and limited government. His stated positions include:
Unreserved support for civil forfeiture — indeed, he proposes to extend it by overruling state laws that forbid the practice;

Support for warrantless government spying on Americans’ digital data and communications;
Opposition to criminal justice reforms and drug laws, and commitment to entrenching the so-called “war on drugs”;
Opposition to federal whistleblower protection laws; and
Opposition to federal intervention in local police abuse cases.

In other words, Sessions is an avid supporter of almost every civil liberties travesty about which we have written over the last decade.

When it comes to civil liberties, Sessions is the swamp. [/quote]

Until today, pretty much any prediction of that kind (of a false flag on this or that date in this or that area) that was widely talked about beforehand, didn't happen. All those big maneuvers came pretty much as a big suprise to most people. That's why I think it is unlikely that anything will happen during the inauguration. Maybe they really planned something like that (and therefore Putin and Co. made statements in that regard), but now they have switched cards, because there is to much focus.

It would be an incredibly stupid move from the PTB. But then again, wishful thinking has reached epic proportions, so that scenario is still possible. They only way I can imagine that they would want to take Trump out, is via "normal means", and in the worst case, via a fast acting cancer, or seething like that. Assuming they want to take him out at all of course. Maybe they just think they can use him for their purposes.

Russia will have to respond if any restrictions are imposed on the RT channel in the United States, the head of the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) said Thursday.

Russian Telecom Watchdog to Respond to Any US Restrictions of RT - Head
https://sputniknews.com/world/201701191049768015-russia-facebook-rt-ban/

Earlier in the day, RT reported that its Facebook page had been blocked until January 21 from leaving posts containing videos, images and links because of copyright infringement claim that came from one of the projects of the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). The ban effectively prevents RT from broadcasting US President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration on Facebook.

"Many US media outlets work in Russia, including television channels, they have the same rights and opportunities as the other outlets. If the unprecedented pressure on RT from US media and social networks leads to restrictions on the work of the Russian channel, we will have to prepare an active response," Alexander Zharov told RIA Novosti.


According to the notification from Facebook, the ban the RT broadcaster from uploading videos, images and links to its page on the social network has taken place because of an alleged copyright infringement, the RT press service stated.

RT Facebook Restrictions Follow Complaint From RFE/RL Project
https://sputniknews.com/world/201701191049764680-rt-ban-facebook-rfe/

A recent decision of Facebook to temporarily ban the RT broadcaster from uploading videos, images and links to its page on the social network has followed a complaint filed by one of the projects of the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), the RT press service said Thursday, citing a notification from Facebook.

Earlier in the day, RT reported that its Facebook page had been blocked until January 21 from leaving posts containing videos, images and links because of copyright infringement claim and the ban would last until Saturday morning, effectively preventing RT from broadcasting US President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration on Facebook.

"According to the notification from Facebook, [the ban] has taken place because of an alleged copyright infringement. The complaint has been received [by the social network] from the Nastoyashchee Vremya TV channel — a project of the US RFE/RL, which gets the financing from the US Department of State," the press service said.

RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan has told RIA Novosti that she is not surprised by the partial ban of the broadcaster's Facebook account.


Facebook banning the RT broadcaster from uploading videos, images and links to its page on the social network in the period that covers the inauguration of US President-elect Donald Trump will give unfair advantage to the other channels covering the event, Secretary of the Russian Union of Journalists Timur Shafir said Thursday.

RT Facebook Ban Coinciding With Trump Inauguration Favors Rivals - Press Union
https://sputniknews.com/society/201701191049758576-rt-facebook-ban-trump/

Earlier in the day, RT reported that its Facebook page had been blocked until January 21 from leaving posts containing videos, images and links because of copyright infringement claim and the ban would last until Saturday morning, effectively preventing RT from broadcasting Trump's inauguration on Facebook.

"In this case, the decision of [Facebook] administrators will result in RT losing a significant chunk of its viewership for Trump's inauguration, which, basically, gives an advantage to the Western broadcasters on FB," Shafir told RIA Novosti.

Shafir said that Facebook administrators could be "honestly mistaken" about RT's right to the content which triggered the ban, but "these selective mistakes regarding Russian Facebook users, including journalists, take place regularly."

According to the screenshots, uploaded by RT, Facebook was notified during RT's broadcast of outgoing US President Barack Obama's press conference that the stream contained content belonging to Nastoyashee Vremya TV channel.


Waging a valiant crusade against what they perceive as ‘Russian propaganda’, certain Western media outlets apparently tend to forget about bothersome and insignificant things like facts and fact checking.

Fact Checking for Dummies: RT Teaches Its Critics a Few Things About Journalism
https://sputniknews.com/world/201701141049602108-rt-critic-response/

As the number of articles blaming RT for destabilizing political situation in Western countries, disseminating propaganda and generally telling things that Western power brokers don’t like, the patience of Russia Today’s journalists was wearing thin.

And when the Washington Post published an article titled ‘If Russia Today is Moscow’s Propaganda Arm, It’s Not Very Good at Its Job’, they decided to teach the newspaper a lesson – that is, a lesson of fact checking and actual journalism.

First things first, WaPo accused the Russian news agency of denigrating former US Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, referring to some kind of (video) "segment" called 'Clinton and ISIS Funded by the Same Money', and "casting doubt on the outcome of the U.S. election with clips like "Trump Will Not be Permitted to Win."

Problem is, the video in question which provoked said accusations is not some sort of RT original production, but rather an interview with Julian Assange, the license for which was purchased by RT from Dartmouth Films.

Likewise, simply browsing the RT news archives reveals that WaPo's claims about the Russian news agency promoting Donald Trump and badmouthing Hillary Clinton during the US presidential election are equally baseless: the 2016 election was clearly regarded as 'choosing between two evils' by RT.

Also, the WaPo author’s attempts to determine exactly how many people visit the RT website and YouTube channel hit a little snag – it turns out that she based her conclusions on data from 2012.

And claims about RT mostly attracting attention via viral video hits online doesn’t even require comprehensive debunking – one only needs to compare the number of views of the aforementioned viral videos and, for example, ‘non-viral videos’ like Donald Trump’s victory speech or the live US election day special coverage.

Ironically enough, the claims that RT’s influence and audience size is vastly overrated appears a bit strange, to put it mildly, considering the amount of attention the news agency received in the recent US intelligence community report.

​"Let us hope that next time US media agencies will put more effort into their attacks against ‘unpopular, Trump-loving Kremlin propaganda mouthpiece that virtually has no audience’, using facts and providing links to sources instead of resorting to unconfirmed statements, fake reports and unfounded figures. But, to be honest, we’re not holding our breath," the RT article concludes.


In an unbelievably brazen and somewhat unnerving report, CNN decided to openly brainstorm what would happen if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice-President-elect Mike Pence were assassinated at Friday's inauguration ceremony. Their conclusion? That a member of the Obama cabinet would be selected to take over as president.

CNN Prophesizes Trump, Pence Getting Assassinated During Inauguration
https://sputniknews.com/us/201701191049784915-shoddy-cnn-reporting-trump-inauguration/

Discussing the list of precautions which have been taken to ensure the President-elect's security at his swearing-in ceremony, CNN contributor Brian Todd's bizarre report pondered just "who would be in charge if an attack hit the incoming president, vice-president, and Congressional leaders just as the transfer of power is underway."

"According to the Constitution," Todd said, "if the president and vice president are killed or incapacitated, next in line is the House Speaker, then the President Pro Tempore of the Senate."

"But what if something happened to them at the inauguration, too?" he asked. "After that, it goes down the list of cabinet secretaries, starting with secretary of state. On the day of the inauguration, as a precaution, a cabinet secretary called the 'designated presidential successor' will not attend the inauguration, ready to step in if something happens."

"But it won't be a Trump cabinet secretary, since none of them have been confirmed yet. It will be an Obama appointee," Todd noted. "No word from the White House on who that will be on Friday."

Bizarre in and of itself, Todd's report was prefaced by anchor Wolf Blitzer, who uncomfortably led into the report by dramatically asking "What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?"

Speaking to the news network, a legal expert emphasized that "you might actually end up with a president from the prior administration because of a tragedy." This person, the expert said, could even be someone as obscure as an acting secretary of state, since Secretary of State John Kerry is expected to resign by noon on Friday.

The uncertainty creates the potential for chaos, high theater, or a hit tv drama," Todd added, referring to the timely 2016 ABC drama 'Designated Survivor', which is based on a scenario where the President and key members of Congress are killed in a terror attack.

The network's curious report prompted outrage on social media, and in the video's YouTube comments section, with users suggesting that CNN was inciting or even promoting presidential assassination.

Totally not suggesting anything here, huh CNN?" one user asked. "LOL. Nothing is going to happen. Why so much death and negatives around Trump?" another pondered.

Others simply flagged the report, which was massively downvoted, saying that in light of repeated death threats against the President-elect in recent weeks and months, the report could be said to "incite violence," which is against YouTube's terms of service.

Others still noted that the report was simply "idiotic." Obviously the White House wouldn't reveal who the designated survivor was, sharp-witted users said, since their identity would need to be kept secret to prevent any would-be terrorist from trying to take out the entire government.

CNN wasn't the only one to dabble in irresponsible journalism ahead of Friday's inauguration ceremony. On Thursday, NBC's Today reported that the US Secret Service is setting up countermeasures to prevent possible terror attacks by tiny radar-resistant drones carrying improvised explosive devices.

Pumping up the threat of the weaponized bomb-carrying drones, Today's journalist emphasized that the drones were "fast, nimble, and because they're plastic — stealth," making them "a worst case scenario, especially with hundreds of thousands of people all gathered in one spot, like at the inauguration…"

Pointing to the regular use of weaponized drones by Daesh in Iraq, a drone countermeasure expert told Today that the inauguration would "not something I would feel safe at."


US Vice President-elect Mike Pence said that the transition team for President-elect Donald Trump did not spend a fifth of the funds available to it and will return the money to the US Department of the Treasury.

Trump’s Transition Team to Return 20% of Unused Funding to US Treasury - Pence

The transition team for President-elect Donald Trump did not spend a fifth of the funds available to it and will return the money to the US Department of the Treasury, US Vice President-elect Mike Pence said in a briefing on Thursday.

We are wrapping up this transition on schedule and under budget. We will actually return some 20 percent of taxpayer funding back to the US Treasury," Pence stated.

[...]Then again, if something big did happen, that would violate the rule that says that the big moves of the PTB cannot be easily predicted. :whistle:

Until today, pretty much any prediction of that kind (of a false flag on this or that date in this or that area) that was widely talked about beforehand, didn't happen. All those big maneuvers came pretty much as a big suprise to most people. That's why I think it is unlikely that anything will happen during the inauguration. Maybe they really planned something like that (and therefore Putin and Co. made statements in that regard), but now they have switched cards, because there is to much focus.

It would be an incredibly stupid move from the PTB. But then again, wishful thinking has reached epic proportions, so that scenario is still possible. They only way I can imagine that they would want to take Trump out, is via "normal means", and in the worst case, via a fast acting cancer, or seething like that. Assuming they want to take him out at all of course. Maybe they just think they can use him for their purposes.

Indeed. Perhaps given all the focus on these events, the PTB are using it as an opportunity to maneuver elsewhere (I'd at least expect Israel to start a bombing campaign). Don't forget the NATO buildup too.

You know, it strikes me that if this over-cooked opposition to the seating of the lawfully elected president continues, driven by Soros and the Clinton gang, it could very well lead to the NECESSITY of Trump imposing Martial Law. And then, of course, all bets are off.

It sort of reminds me of the way the US has gone after Russia again and again, with endless patient responses, and turning the other cheek and all that, and then boom! Russia takes back Crimea, sends support to Assad, warns Turkey about a coup, and is now speaking out a lot more plainly about US wrongdoing.

Anyway, I thought about the fact that very early in the election thread, I pointed out that all the "signs" were there of a sort of Hitler type to be voted in (keeping in mind that Hitler WAS voted in). But, of course, it all looks nice on the surface except for the cabinet picks here and there. And Trump says all the right things. But then, so did Hitler. And certainly, I do not think for a moment that Hillary and the gang did not have in mind a Hitlerian type of maneuver either.

So, the Cs said everything was leading to a re-run of Nazi Germany only on a global scale. One way that could happen would be for Trump and Putin to both be assassinated, lighting the fires of global war and revolution. Obviously, the various players don't really want that full blown, but they can't see what they don't want to see; they all think that everything is under their control, or can be handled. But what if it can't? What if they go too far in their hubris?

That would then pretty much destroy a lot of people and stuff and leave the planet in a state to be taken over by a "savior". (Right now we have two "saviors", Putin and Trump, which don't fulfill the requirements for a global Nazi Germany scenario.)

Then, I thought about what the Cs had said about people being mind-programmed to "go off all at once".

Q: (T) OK, the question is, is the fellow that just shot three professors in San Diego, I think it was, the University, before they read his thesis, because he was afraid they would throw his thesis away, and make it look bad, and flunk him. Was he a Greenbaum subject?

A: Yes.

Q: (T) Why did they turn him 'on' at that point?

A: Not correct concept. What if: those programmed in the so called "Greenbaum" projects are preprogrammed to "go off" all at once, and some "malfunction," and go off early?

Q: (L) Oh!!! Can you tell us at approximately what time they're programmed to go off? Because it is a program...

A: Nope.

It sort of looks to me like this might be happening right now.

I guess if Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), are responsible for the RT ban, we ought to get out there and troll them mercilessly.
