Learning from the Tyrants 9

New Press conference DC. The building under construction setting was brilliant, unconsciously we think America being rebuilt. A working Joe follows him into the presser. We think he is leading the rebuilding. The lady that asked for a job during the interview was brilliant. That will only work once, he has to give her a job. Looked good for him. Win Win. She seized her opportunity for advancement. Well done. I agreed with every thing he said. What about the issues lying press? At the end he fired off the Trump Train meme.
The comments in the YouTube stream I was viewing went wild. I always view that stream rather than c span that does have a better feed. The necessarily brief comments reflect what people are feeling. (Not thinking as Scott says over and over). When it glitched one guy said “Make the stream great again” thought that was funny. This went off perfectly, Trump Wins.


Next up Israel speech. Trump has set it up so he has already won. A large number of the population of the US do not care about the rest of the world anymore. The see the country crumbling. The defense of Israel has dropped in their priority list. Quite a few more are lumping that country in with other countries that sponge off America while we protect them. The strategic thinking of Trump is amazing. For the last month he has been setting this meme up. And even though he used Saudi Arabia Japan Germany and Japan as the example, he was at the same time creating a unconscious meme of all vassals being freeloaders. Is Trump one of the great Tyrants? Our empire is in decline, many vassal states are conducting their own self interest foreign policy. Saudi Arabia supporting Al Qaeda in Syria being an example. Israel is perhaps the most uppity vassal of the Empire. And the Rabbis walking out on the speech will play right into his hands. How will Trump walk the line tonight, put down the rebellion of the vassals, yet not upset the apple cart? What will he say?

“Wretched, ephemeral race, children of chance and tribulation, why do you force me to tell you the very thing which it would be most profitable for you not to hear? The very best thing is utterly beyond your reach: not to have been born, not to be, to be nothing. However, the second best thing for you is: to die soon.”

Looks like he went all in for Israel.  Will the Jewish vote go all in for him?  A Tyrant may be swayed if the people help him. If they do not, than why should he care about them anymore? Strange how a man that owes no one can do what he likes.

“When all by myself, I can think of all kinds of clever remarks, quick comebacks to what no one said, and flashes of witty sociability with nobody. But all of this vanishes when I face someone in the flesh: I lose my intelligence, I can no longer speak, and after half an hour I just feel tired. Talking to people makes me feel like sleeping. Only my ghostly and imaginary friends, only the conversations I have in my dreams, are genuinely real and substantial.”   -Fernando Pessoa

Ghostly and imaginary friends, that would be me too, reading this long after you are dead, as it would be my unknown readership. I have got to fix the comments section.

“In order that love be fully satisfied, It is necessary that It lower Itself and that It lower Itself to nothingness and transform this nothingness into fire.” Teresa of Avila

 We did not think that it would come to this so soon.  The cupboard is bare, the beach is empty of shells, the mists cover the, the, the Larch.

Well that did it. Bankrupt. Kaput. This blog was an empty promise.
