The title of this piece was recited by The Three Witches in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” and the photo symbolizes America’s recent history and the desired destiny for a large percentage of the nation’s voters:  An arrogant political leftist infiltrator, while donning the horns of Baphomet, holding a bullhorn in his left hand and an American flag subdued under his right fist.  It is the vision of Janus in transition, the two-faced god simultaneously seeing forward and backward; future and past.

Over the past two years, I have written multiple articles regarding episodes playing out on the national stage; and nearly every piece expressed my unease at the “movie-of-the-week”, or “reality television” vibe that accompanied those media narratives.  The episodes seemed so scripted…. so perfectly… contrived.

The recent “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington D.C. unwound in a similar, seemingly scripted, fashion.  Just like the election fraud that took place months earlier that was predicted by both President Trump and Vice President Pence many months before November 3, 2020, so was the potential for violence, and ANTIFA infiltration, predicted by AM radio hosts and other political commenters prior to the rally on January 6, 2021.


So here’s an interesting question:  Could anyone have scripted the events of the first week of the New Year that would have left Trump supporters more shamed, scorned, and deflated than they are now? And that’s the point: The outcomes are too perfect for the political left- right down to the predictable and exact 51% Democrat / 49% Republican split in the two Georgia senate run-off races the day prior.

Truly, we’ve now witnessed the magic spell of The Borg; and it is quite something to behold.

Throughout history, there has been a chaotic cadence to connected occurrences but, especially now, as the new normal winds out like clockwork. The timing and sequence of events was never going to change and The Borg could care less whether or not we now see the full scale of its deception and corruption.

I am reminded of certain Bible stories describing time periods where the devil was allowed to run riot. For example, when Old Testament nations were judged harshly by other tribes, or after the death of Jesus and the Apostles were left abandoned, scattered, and hiding in the dark.  Of course, Trump has proven to be no savior, so far.  And, yet, the legend of his example in the tide of time remains a valid comparison; beneath blue skies or gray.

There are lessons to be learned about hope. The tyrannical President Snow in the dystopian Hunger Games stories utilized it as follows:

Hope, it is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective, a lot of hope is dangerous. A spark is fine, as long as it’s contained.

And was that not the story of Trump?  A little hope, always just ahead, or around the corner, until the clock ran out.  Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending upon one’s mindset, Christians still have their hope.  So that makes them dangerous to The Borg because many Christians believe rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God:

 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.

-1 Corinthians 7.23


 “Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.”

-William Penn


It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes

-Psalm 118.9

Even now, there are those who believe Trump will pull the trigger on his last remaining option to save the republic: Executive Order 13848 – and that is the real reason why the Democrats are in such a hurry to impeach the president and remove him from office before Inauguration Day.  If Trump were to light that fuse, it would have global consequences and, quite possibly, square off nations such as China, Russia, and Israel, and, especially, in light of the perceived forthcoming fall-out  from a Biden/Harris administration.

As I questioned in an article from November:   If Trump were real, a true swamp fighter, then what would stop him from “going full Franco, declaring the election invalid, and beginning the arrests and executions; because if the Republic is over anyway… why not?

Some of Trump’s supporters still believe this may happen that is why Trump said “a new administration” will be inaugurated on January 20, 2021 accompanied by this cryptic tweet:

And to all of my wonderful supporters, I know you are disappointed but I also want you to know that our incredible journey is only just beginning.

More hopium? Or could anything happen, even now?  Either way, MAGA dreams die hard. After all, why would a U.S. president fully committed to making America great again, concede to an election he knows was stolen…. unless he was controlled opposition from the start?

I watched Trump’s “Stop the Steal” speech in Washington D.C. and it appeared he was exhausting all legal and political remedies. Admittedly, it was surreal to hear a U.S. President appeal to his vice-president to “do the right thing” and save the nation. It was also bizarre to see news networks, including Fox, broadcast close-up shots of the rally in order to make the crowd size appear smaller.

Certainly, there were many statements made by Trump that sounded like warnings, veiled threats, and, possibly, allusions to extreme measures.  As has always been the case with Trump, his interpretation depends upon where people find themselves on the political spectrum; and, in particular, on their view of The Swamp. Regardless, it appeared Trump’s speech was a final attempt at a legal remedy.  But that was before chaos ensued and a female Trump supporter was, apparently, executed by capital police:

As the “wild” events were occurring in the nation’s capital, Trump’s tweet on Mike Pence’s cowardice really told the Vice President off and gave him the works:

Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!

To be sure, it appeared there were trolls present in the storming of the capital building, either BLM or Antifa, or both. During one speech at around 4:30 PM (Eastern Time), a younger bald man was announcing demands through a loud speaker and said: “We demand 50% off everything!”  Undoubtedly, there were statements made, and demands declared, which sounded as if they were prepared by an exiled press secretary from the now-disbanded Republic of Chaz.

Overall, however, after a yuge rally, the storming of the capital looked like the last weak convulsions of a dead republic.  Or was it allowed to play out in order to begin something else?

Regardless, by that evening, America’s political leaders regathered on the floor of the senate and thanked the capitol police for defending the building against “insurrection”.  Additionally, there was a near-universal capitulation by the GOP.  We witnessed former Trump supporting senators such as Mike Lee (R-UT), Lindsay Graham (R-SC), and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) publicly abandon the president in an orgy of virtue-signaling enthusiasm.

Was it just me, or did Lindsay Graham appear smug and, even, excitedly satisfied in his concession speech to The Borg? And why are Democrats acting so frantic now, given the fact that Trump appears to have been completely canceled?

Does The Borg now fear what Trump might do next?

Probably not. Schumer and Pelosi’s current hysterics likely have more to do with completely humiliating the president as opposed to anything else; especially humiliation afflicted on the president as a message to those who would dare to follow in his footsteps.

But, seriously, given that, would anything Trump do next surprise you?

Twenty-three months ago, in an article entitled “On Channel Surfing, Circus Acts, and Time Passages”, I outlined how four U.S. Presidents experienced The Borg during their respective administrations:

What Abraham Lincoln foresaw, worried Woodrow Wilson, of which Dwight Eisenhower warned, that killed John F. Kennedy.

If Trump was either played by The Borg OR actually deceived his supporters on purpose, then, it would appear my above observations would need to be updated as follows:

What Abraham Lincoln foresaw, worried Woodrow Wilson, of which Dwight Eisenhower warned, that killed John F. Kennedy and finally made Donald J. Trump irrelevant as the U.S. Constitution was irredeemably made null and void.

If a stolen presidential election is allowed to stand, then America’s social contract is annulled.  And, if it turns out the Deplorables were, in fact, trolled by Trump all along, then what would be the most effective ways for a decapitated movement to now wage battle against The Borg?

….Through the randomly disconnected anonymity of lone solo artists seeing points of weakness, lines of supply, brake lines, internet cables, control grids, electrical hubs and asking what can be won. Call it ‘surprise warfare’ by the ‘antiborg.’

Other than that, what kind of offensive could be launched in the absence of regional and national leadership? Who will lead? Who has the ability? What remains realistically, and statistically, possible? What can be won?

These are good questions because campaign rallies can generate much enthusiasm for political leaders but storming government buildings with no plan in place simply makes for strange television.

As of this writing, the headlines in the Orwellian Media are screaming about the death of a capitol police officer who died from injuries after clashing with the “pro-Trump mob”.

And what a clash it must have been, no? Especially, in-between the selfies taken with the capitol police.
