Emergency
Danger America…Danger!

Never mind, there is no danger, even in his speech from the Rose Garden yesterday Donald Trump could not keep the rationale for his declaration of a national emergency straight.

“There is a crisis at the border!” Followed by, “I didn’t need to do this right now.”

There is no crisis at the border, with the exception of the humanitarian crisis caused by the inhuman policies of the T-Rump’s administration.

Don’t panic, not over that. That does not mean you should not worry. The republicans in congress are enabling this mad-man, giving up every pretention that they have any core beliefs at all. They are allowing him to take the country over the cliff, and the American way is in tatters.

Even my father, who served twenty-two years in the military, Marine Corps and Airforce combined, and followed that up with a second career as a federal law enforcement officer, even he makes excuses for T-Rump, demands that people should respect him, simply because he is “Our President,” he does this with no shame even as T-Rump operates his criminal regime out of the house, demonstrating that he prefers the intelligence assessment of Vladimir Putin over our own institutions, on a host of issues pertaining to national security and our alliances. He gives that orange monster a pass while watches the man attack and undermines the institutions like NATO that have kept the world safe and which my father spent his entire life serving.

It is mystifying, and an example of how disgraceful rank partisanship can be.

How is it that roughly one third of country cannot tell that they are being lied to, they cannot tell, and the guy lying to them doesn’t even try to hide it, he just lies, and lies so profusely, that it all comes off like a bad joke.

Wake America, abandon this guy. It is time to put an end to this foolishness. What we are dealing with in Donald Trump, the challenges that his administration is putting the country through, it is not game.

It might feel like a game when you are having a friendly argument with your pals and your family members; issue a couple of witticisms, tell a couple of jokes, maybe you think you have scored a point or to if you successfully argue someone down.

But this is not a game, it is the American way of life that is on the line. It’s our constitutional republic, democracy itself that is at stake. We cannot allow the chief executive to usurp the authority of congress, to ignore the demands of the courts, to profit from his business dealings with foreign governments, and to sleep with the enemy.

Donald Trump is a traitor, he is an agent of the former head of the KGB. This is not a game, it is not a joke or some kind of weird comedy, it’s a tragedy, and there are lives hanging in the balance.

Chapter Two: Hypothesis

Jim understood a great deal about the phenomenon of consciousness. The Collective had been engineered on the basis of its science.

Jim’s personal history, suggested to him that he had been among the original members of the Collective, he had been one of the engineers who had built the first machines that captured the essence of the individual to house them in a perpetual state of being.

He had seen the early failures and witnessed their first successes, and he had been among the first volunteers to enter the Collective, once the technologies had been perfected.

He possessed these memories, though he was doubtful of whether they actually belonged to him, but even if they were not his own, he owned them now. He owned them completely.

He understood that consciousness is essentially an electromagnetic phenomenon. He did not understand why consciousness of the type that the Ancient People possessed, had emerged in his ancestors but nowhere else in the known galaxy, except for possibly on the planet Earth.

Jim theorized that there was as element at work in the cognitive process of human-beings, nanoparticles of magnetite, which had bonded with the human brain in a strong link, connecting each person to its magnetic field and through that field to one another, thereby creating a field of cynergy not un-like the Collective.

The type of consciousness which the Ancient People possessed was not merely a product of their genetic endowment, it was also a function of their interaction with a unique environment.

He theorized that no species could advance to the point of becoming a spacefaring civilization if their home planet did not have these properties, properties which allowed the inhabitants to connect with one another through a subconscious field.

Creativity and inventiveness happened there, through unconscious collaboration, in the nous-sphere.

Jim came to believe that the Ancient People had created the Collective at the height of their scientific achievement, on a world that had these same properties, they traveled to, built colonies and seeded life on a million other worlds that did not have such properties, while in the meantime, their cradle-star went supernova and destroy the planet of their birth.

He could not go back and study it to confirm his hypothesis.
