What’s Really Behind Trump’s Announced North Korean Meeting?

jong-unDonald Trump announced today that he wants to meet with Kim Jong-un in May to discuss denuclearization. But was it Donald Trump, Jong-un, our generals, or Vladimir Putin – who first imagined this newly announced meeting? Let’s follow the money and logical trails and see if we can draw some conclusions. 

#1 The Washington Post reported in December 2017 that some of the more advanced missiles recently put on display by North Korea were acquired with help from Russia. This was according to actual documents from one of the top Soviet missile manufacturers. That’s a solid source of information. So Russia is working with North Korea, and clearly Putin has some pretty decent pull with Kim Jong-un. 

#2 On February 3, 2017, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un sent out Lunar New Year greeting cards to numerous world leaders, highlighting his international allies. He listed Russia at the top of his list, relegating China to second place and Cuba to third. His symbolic show of solidarity with the Kremlin has also been accompanied by a string of economic deals with Russia. North Korea is also beholden to Russia owing to its geographical situation. North Korea is to Russia is like Delaware is to the United States. 

#3 On January 31 2017, Russia’s state news agency, TASS, reported that Russia Railways representatives visited North Korea to discuss an expansion of railway links between the two countries.  They share a border. Both parties agreed to expand training for North Korean engineers at Russian universities.

The obvious conclusion is that Putin and Jong-un are working together – and in that relationship clearly Putin has the upper hand.

Putin also has a huge stake in Trump’s success because there’s a 500 billion dollar oil deal he wanted Tillerson/Exxon for, owing to Obama’s sanctions against Russia for Putin invading Crimea. This is why Putin wanted Tillerson and not Romney. Putin also has the upper hand on Trump. ( Interesting that Tillerson is out now. My sense is that he was too much of a patriot, to cow-tow to Trump, a person he considered a moron. Kudos to Rex. )

Trump and Putin are clearly both very greedy men, salesmen more than statesmen, and they have their eyes on the biggest monetary deal in the history of man

So what is behind Trump’s May rendezvous with Kim Jong-un?

We can already see the one major result of Trump’s North Korean meeting: it takes the main focus of news reporting off the Russian story, where Trump cannot get a break, largely because the criminality and truth is slowly coming to light.  

We have clear evidence that Korea is working with Putin, so Putin is obviously in on this May meeting with Trump and Jong-un. Putin may even have directed it. They all have back-channels. Taking the heat off Trump increases Putin’s chance of getting that oil deal, which if Trump is ousted, he will never get – and he knows that. 

With all three players tractably and directly connected, what we are witnessing is nothing more than a choreographed staged show designed to make it seem like a big global problem is about to be solved by Donald Trump. And that buys Trump time to keep the Russian heat away. I don’t think this will turn out to be anything more than that. A stalling tactic coordinated by Putin to help Trump – probably for that oil deal which is what he wanted when he started helping Trump with “bots” and “spies”. 

Plus if they really wanted to solve the problem, they could use a phone or face time tomorrow. But that is NOT the goal. The goal is stall and put on a show and keep the public eye off the criminal activity that went on, and goes on daily in this White House. Trump has stopped the formality of  documenting who visits the White House. He does not even want us to know who he is working with here in the USA, let alone the foreign spies. Our diplomatic corps has been slashed to pieces. He has sold us out – not just Manafort. 

And Trump still won’t show his taxes for fear of what? Please fill that in yourself. But it’s not because he never gave much to charity or he is under audit.  I assume it’s because his taxes reveal ties to the shadowy regimes he has been working with for years. I assume its because he launders his money because he hates to pay tax to the USA and take part in any serious building of America with his dollars. That sort of patriotism has always been for suckers in his “don’t tax me” mind.  I assume that reasonable people know he won’t show taxes because it will reveal that Trump is a criminal. 

Trump knows its harder to attack a president when there are wars or peace negotiations going on. So maybe this entire event is part of a few coordinated staged events to get the news off Trump’s Russian connections. And working backwards, this cynical logic is already proving out. It’s working. And nothing else makes much sense.

manchurian-bwIf Trump stays in power, it increases Putin’s chance that the 500 billion-dollar oil deal will happen. And of course, Trump gets a percentage of that deal, deposited into one of those secret bank accounts that he refuses to disclose to us. That’s how these deals are made.

I always assume that people with known greed disease, like Putin and Trump have shown they have one main objective: to gain more dollars. It’s how greedy people measure their success. Neither Putin nor Trump has shown the world, or their citizens any real care for their constituents. Have they? They are clearly both in this for themselves. They would both feel out of their skin to become charitable souls. We all know that. Trump supporters know this too. 

So media people! Please do not get distracted by this sudden North Korea thing; it’s a coordinated staged show.  Yong-un will likely change his mind when it gets down to actual denuclearization. It is still a favorite to be a nothing-burger with Kim walking away, and a net effect of stalling for time and making Trump appear to be presidential. 

Stay on the Russian/Trump investigation. You will eventually discover that the Russians recruited Trump – and that was done for the Russian oil deal . They have three more years to get that done if we don’t impeach Trump and Tillerson. It’s worth that time to make 500 billion, right? It’s a long con, as its called in carny world.

Neither Trump nor Putin can outrun the Blue Wave of 2018!

If we VOTE THEM OUT in 2018, we can flip the house and that changes everything. And it is beginning to feel like this can happen. Almost no average American wants the GOP’s no-care health bill . Why would people vote for any GOP candidates in 2018? 

Saving some huge political event, there are only two realistic avenues to save America from the current Putin/Trump regime, which is what we have now. 

#1 Mueller gets to the truth on the Russian hack, and shows us all that Trump was in on it before November. That would do it.  

#2 The country votes out all sold-out congressmen in 2018. It looks like the pendulum is swinging in that direction. So stay vocal! Then we impeach Trump. 

This oil deal is what the Russian election campaign was all about. It is worth at least a 25 billion dollars (5% commission)  for Trump and 475 billion for Putin. Putin and Trump are salesmen, trying to make a “score”, which is what they call it.  I know this because I went to that same depression-survivor sales school as Trump did. It’ s why we ended up in a class together at Wharton School of Finance.

trumpHowever, this type of selling was not taught at Wharton. It was taught at Trump’s dinner table, while growing up. I got fed the same lines – I just made different decisions about them. And that’s why Trump thanked his long-deceased father at his acceptance speech. The thank you was lightly glossed over by the media, but it was actually a big deal for Trump who had serious father issues.

There was real generation gap between the spoiled kids of the 1960’s and the children of the Great Depression. Listen to Frank Zappa to learn about that.

Trump finally got closure on his father issue with a brief statement made to the deceased. It’s probably something he never told him when he was alive. It was his way of saying, “dad you were right all along”. It actually was one of the most human and honest statements Trump has ever made.

Media! Stay on the real story – the Trump/Putin coordination.

Do not get distracted by the staging we are witnessing. We will get more of it. It’s all the guilty can do. We will get to the obvious truth, but only if we stay focused on what our collective logic is telling us. We have elected a criminal. He is an outlying member of the Russian mafia, which deals in global money laundering. 


Very few Americans love Trump so much that if they knew he was a Russian agent, witting or not, they would be OK with it. Right?    Right?


Security Clearances – “Thick As Thieves” and The ‘CLEAN HOUSE’ Bill

Over thirty top staffers in the White House don’t have security clearance. Without uniform and thorough vetting processes, those who are privy to top secrets can be blackmailed by their past connections, crimes and embarrassing behavior. Well duh – but what’s the point of vetting staffers if their boss, the president, refuses to be vetted and is suspect of being compromise-able?

manchurian-bwDoes it occur to anyone that a US president should also be vetted for security? And yes, maybe they should be vetted before they are even allowed to be candidates. But that would be for 2020, I guess. For now, the president is actually the most important person in the US to be un-compromised and un-compromise-able.  Think about it. Without presidential vetting in place, we have created a safe space – a gun-free zone so to speak – for a potus to commit crimes and engage in self-dealing without reproach. And now that Kushner has been found using the White House to get large business loans, its clear that self-dealing was the intention of the president and his generals when they took office.  How rampant is this?  Very rampant! A dirty boss would want to surround himself with other like-minded criminals, so they are naturally loyal to each other. No Boy Scouts allowed. Thick as thieves, they used to say.

Does any senator or congressman or person have the guts to propose a bill that says “going forward, no one can work in the White House without security clearance, the president included.” That is in the public interest, is it not? Representatives are supposed to be working in the public interest. This is a damning failure in job performance and likely not to be advanced because many of them fear that scrutiny would expose their own crimes. 

Trump says he cares about protecting Americans. How is allowing insecure staffers get top secret info “caring” about security? It is not. So we must care for ourselves here. We can’t be stupid. Trump’s early campaign line was “How stupid are the people of Iowa?” Well America, how stupid are we going to be about security clearances in the White House or the Congress for that matter?

I want to propose a CLEAN HOUSE BILL. And we can state the exact vetting process by which ALL campaigners for high office, and even current office holders will be subject to. No exceptions. This is security. It must be applied to all with the exact same standards, regardless of the position of said vetted person, POTUS included.

Can someone please advance this notion in a bill, ASAP? With that in place, we would not need Mueller to investigate Russia to hold Trump accountable to some degree. I would think declaring 5 years of taxes would be part of any vetting process. It’s a new day. We must be smarter, or we will lose this democracy this year. 

Trump Is Buying the Government

Trump has been buying key people to escape justice for the crimes of espionage, money laundering and tax evasion. His modus operandi has always been to bribe or enrich certain key people to smooth the way for his crimes and projects. Right now, his only project of concern is avoiding prosecution for Russia. If he loses that battle, he loses his freedom and his family fortune. He’d rather sell the country out that have that happen. That’s why we don’t see any support to stop Russian meddling in 2018 or even implement a Russian sanction. They are his allies!  It’s not in his interest to sanction Russia as a criminal president – and he will need to stay in power to keep his fortune. And of course, if he sells Russia out, they will leak the whole ugly truth. He won’t love Wikileaks any more. 

Between the who are bought and those who are suborned, the US democracy does not have a chance unless Mueller delivers the whole truth before November or we vote out all sold-out politicians And since the crooked politicians know this, the 2018 election will be rigged again.  The Russian meddling is still going on and Trump is not even implementing the sanctions. He needs them more than he needs food. 

The Way Out Of This Mess

Trump’s projects must be stonewalled! I don’t care if Dreamers have to take a back seat for a short while. We won’t have a USA by year’s end if we don’t fix this now. So they will lose the US they love too unless we take decided action now.

#1 We don’t vote on a thing until the Russian sanctions are implemented.

#2 We don’t vote on a thing until Trump puts it in writing that he will not fire Rosenstein or Mueller without just cause, said cause to be determined by a court with many justices on a bench.

#3 We don’t vote on a thing until Jared Kushner and all Trump WH staffers are vetted by a thorough process conducted by the FBI. We can leave Trump out of this because it is sort of covered in #2.

Enough for today but one more thing.

Bernie and Biden should run together as a ticket and start campaigning now. No more Dem vs. Dem. These are our best, caring, well-spoken senior warriors. No women for POTUS this 2020 cycle. No ethnics either, I am sorry. We will need to appeal to Trump’s base people to some degree for one cycle. Once we win, anything is possible. But we must win in November. We can show the forgotten people that we care. And, if we keep our word to Trump’s base people and improve their lives, they will notice and we will be showered with two generations of loyal supporters. Trump’s base people actually are loyal, perhaps to a fault. That’s how we can take this country back and set it on a righteous course again. 

And I have just got word that my commission to make 500 political buttons that say VOTE THEM OUT in solidarity for the Parkland shootings, has gone through and I will have them soon. This is ultimately the way out of our mess. We vote out all sold-out politicians.

Analyze Contact, Collusion, Conspiracy: In That Order

True, This! — Beneath the rule of men entirely great
The pen is mightier than the sword.                                                                                                            1839, Edward Bulwer-Lytton in his play: Richelieu; Or the Conspiracy

hump-t2I also believe words are more powerful than generally believed. A man’s words can outlive a man. They travel at great speed from man to man and lodge in their brains, inspiring actions. Words are contagious, like the flu. 

So let’s analyze three words we hear about Trump so that we are clear on what they mean to us: CONTACT COLLUSION CONSPIRACY

They all start with CO(N). English C-words trace their inspiration back to Stone Ages and the claw of a bird. That association was formed because bird’s make the sound CAW or COO and we were very attracted to their CLAWS which could CATCH things better than we could. Remember, we were hunters when spoken language began to take root, about 100,000 years ago.c-claw

The written C looks like a claw for that reason. English C-words are largely about anything a claw can be or do. Closure, contact, crushing ..etc. 

CONTACT ends in TACT. That has to do with touching, tactile. And that’s because when we say TUH there is a touching process in our mouths. So CONTACT means to touch together. Fair enough. 

sun-liftCOLLUSION end in LUSION. The other big word that ends in LUSION is ILLUSION. This is a classic L word. About 50% of L-words are about things that are associated with LIFTING and LIGHT, because when we say EL our tongues go up. It reminded the early talkers of the lifting of the arms we had employed to say LIGHT or LIFT before we got control of our tongues. LUSION is a for of LUX (the Latin word for light) and it has to do with LOOKING and LIGHT. COLLUSION just means “looking together”. It’s why it does not generally resound in us as a crime. It has a playful sense to it. 


CONSPIRE ends in SPIRE. In SPIRE we see SPIRIT. It means that two are spirited together.spirit But SPIRE can be broken down further. I use a sort of lowest common denominator method to get to the root of a word. PYRE is FIRE. And S often represents MOTION when it starts an English word. A SPIRIT is the FIRE what moves within us. When two conspire, there is a sense of wishing for the same things and then working to make them happen.

And that’s where Trump and his entire team – right down to the Faux News team – are all clearly guilty. Because Russia wanted Trump to win. They even celebrated his victory. They are trying to undo the Magnitsky Act and get the oil drilling ban overturned. That is conspiracy. 

And the order of business is logical as well. First, tip toe in – CONTACT! ( not a crime yet) Then explore if you see things the same way. (COLLUSION) Then, if there is accord – CONSPIRACY gets put into action. Enter Facebook, Google, fake news – and a victory that was not ethical, nor wanted by the majority nor even legitimate. 

Now, it’s time to pay the price for conspiracy with a foreign enemy to affect the US election of 2016. And that used to be called TREASON. 


Why Did Putin Say “Trump is Acting in Accordance with His Own … Laws?

Trump is trying to legally become the first dictator of the USA. And if he gets away with it, the American democracy as we know it may be ruined for the foreseeable future. Then Putin has really won.

putin-hockeyListen to what Putin said at a USSR hockey game to our CBS reporter. He said with an undeniable smirk “Trump is acting in accordance with his own government”.

Why would he say that? Is that what he or anyone would say about Teresa May or Angela Merkel? I don’t think so. People assume that a country’s leaders are not breaking the laws of their own country. So why would he say that? 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1NKWYepioA   May 10th, 2017. Putin speaks about the firing of James Comey. 

If you read between the lines, the way you always should with politicians, it seems to be about Comey’s firing but the undercurrent is about some sort of struggle Trump is having with his own government. Putin is saying, in effect, that Trump would prefer not to have an adversarial US government to deal with – (the way Putin has it in Russia as an elected dictator), but he is not breaking any US laws. He is in accordance. So it’s all OK. 

This statement by Putin occupied a space in his brain where Putin must forgive Donald Trump a bit, because Trump cannot yet deliver on whatever promises he had been given for his election help. The subtext is that Donald will need some time to make things “whole”. So this is the pass Putin gives Donald Trump, “He is acting in accordance with his own government.”  

It also tells me that Putin has given Trump some concrete orders and/or there is a large debt to make whole – and now he is just patiently waiting for them to be executed in due time without breaking any US laws. Are they about lifting sanctions? Probably. But there could be much more in that back channel.  

That back channel they wanted to set up was clearly an attempt to create safe space for collusion and yet more plotting against the people of the US for whom Putin and Trump have absolutely no love. And who is the brains behind all this? Trump is really not smart enough to be as sinister as Vladimir Putin. The real boss is indeed Vladimir Putin. But Trump would like to be as smart as Putin. He’s made it abundantly clear how much he really admires that man. 

Witness how Trump’s appointees take liberties with spending exorbitant amounts on plane trips and then use the same line –“I did not break any laws”.  Is that all any of these politicians know? Lawyer up then do what you must to get ahead? That is actually the real Trump modus operandi. Always has been. 

So I see Putin as having communicated this to Donald Trump in some way. 

Donald. Use your own rules, lawyers and state press (Fox). Get the right people around you and elected to key offices. Then what I have here in Russia, – it can happen for you and your family, even in the USA. You’ll never have to hear the press belittle you again. Then you and I will rule the world.”

And Trump took that bait, sold-out greed-monger that he is. 

Don’t let RED happen here. Not here. That’s just too stupid.

Vote out every Trump Republican in 2018 and we won’t have to worry about this any more. Then we can all get back to our lives. 



Make a bumper sticker! Or find your own way to let everyone know how you feel. That’s all its going to take. Our numbers are too strong. Let’s f l e x our numbers. This is easy. We are USA citizens! Let’s keep it that way … please. 


What do we do after we conclude Trump was working with the Russians?

posted January 2017 – updated October 17, 2017

I have been saying Trump has been in bed with Russia for over 30 years. I believe the relationship began in AC and involved the billion dollars he never lost and a desire to not pay taxes on that revenue stream. I believe he laundered that billion overseas and got a taste for international crime in the 1980’s.  We are getting closer to figuring this out every day. Money leaves trails, as long as sincere people are looking.

The big question that now remains is:

Will we stop an illegal president before he goes fascist on us, starts a war, shuts down the media and turns our beautiful democracy into a mess that is not easily fixed?

We see him taking the first steps of a would-be repressive government. Firing scientists. Telling boldface lies to the press. Calling the press “fake news”. Undermining the healthcare of American citizens. Trying to give more tax breaks to the wealthy!  By now, many of his own supporters realize they made a huge mistake. 

Many, if not most Americans now believe Trump was and is compromised. We’re getting closer to hard proof, but Trump’s attempts to shut down the investigations – his by any means possible credo – is the most damning evidence to any rational person. He wont give up either. Trump will offer huge amounts of money to install key people to hush his crimes. He is trying this in his own way every day. Comey said no and was booted. Mueller will not bend. But its still anyone’s guess if the truth will make it to the record. 

So, while we await our system, and without being judge and jury, I have this question for all Americans to ponder and that includes our cabinet members, Trump’s GOP “friends”, CIA and FBI agents, our servicemen who put their lives on the line – and even his bodyguards!

What would you really do, or want done if  you discovered Trump has been compromised by Russia and/or worked with Russia to fix his election? 

Would you still protect him, because he is president?  Would you want him treated like any other traitor?  What should we really want done as the United States?  

I created a metaphor to help you visualize this pending problem that grows larger every day and draw a proper conclusion.


Imagine if an alien species from was able to fix a US presidential election and they got their alien life force “guy” to win. Imagine that alien is now the president, and as president it inherits the presidential powers and protections. Those same protections would be used by the alien to keep us from finding out that the alien actually fixed the election- to keep us in the dark.  They could also keep us from finding out that the alien president has an agenda that does not benefit our citizens – a secret loyalty to his own species! What a tale.

Now imagine that some lowly congressperson figures out that the alien fixed the election.  Does that alien still rightly have his presidential protections or powers? If so, how does this movie end happily? It does not. Our collective answer better be no, the alien president no longer has the presidential protections and powers – or we have already lost our democracy.

My fellow US citizens. It is essential that once we discover we have an alien or criminal president, that he immediately loses the powers and protections of the presidency. The powers and protections of the presidency are only valid if the president himself is valid. Those lost protections must include the pardon power!

To not see that clearly, or to ignore this in a partisan fever, would be to miss the very real launching pad for fascism and to invite the end of our democracy to take root in the USA.

Any civil servant should immediately lose the protections and powers of their office the moment they are found guilty of the crime of trying to fix their election to attain that office.

And this is exactly why Donald Trump always insists that his presidency was won fairly, in spite of the mounting evidence. He knows he has these pardon powers, but someone must have explained to him that once they find that smoking gun the powers and protections of the presidency could go out the window. So Trump has to say Russia is fake news to save his own neck. 

Should Trump, his family, friends or staffers, be found guilty of election crimes, we must be ready to disavow Trump’s presidency, its actions and even many of its appointees. Would we allow that alien to keep his appointees? They could be aliens too, right? That’s how we have to think about this. 

Once proven, Russia-gate won’t be fake news; it will be fake president. 

So let’s figure out what exactly what we should do when the truth about the 2016 election comes out. It should not be long now. I’d like to hear more discussion about what we do after we know for sure that Trump, his family or appointees have been part of a team effort to subvert democracy in the USA.

Do we allow Pence, an appointee of the alien president to become the new president? – Or are all cabinet members guilty by association to the alien president? 

How we should handle this is a very important discussion because it impacts our approach to zeroing in on the truth. If we allow his regime to stand, have we eliminated the problem? I don’t think so. But that’s just me. What do you think?

DJ Trump seems to alienate everyone. That should not seem strange any longer. He was an alien in college; he did not connect well with others and lived in his own aristocratic bubble. In business he was heartless, ruthless and a scoundrel. And now as president his disconnect is truly dysfunctional. So if he alienates people,  well that’s what aliens actually do. They alienate.   Joseph Aronesty


It’s Time for World Leaders to Help the USA with its Trump Problem

This is an email-letter I wrote to Prime Minister Teresa May today,
Teresa May,
Please let me know you get this communication and if you feel it has some value to you and our world. Remember, when we did not stand up to Hitler, early in his regime, the entire world suffered. 
I am one of the majority of Americans who feel we are under a joint attack in the USA.  It is a cyber attack, launched by Russian Mafia players partnering with big money corporatism here in the USA.  Their goals are to hide financial crimes and steer an evolving modern world back in time, headed towards a neo-oligarchy where money rules to the detriment of everyday citizens.

The weapons in this war are words. – To be silent is to accept defeat.


I am a 69 year old US citizen. I happened to have known Donald Trump when we were young and foolish at U of P. He is still foolish. But he is also madman at the helm of the world – in essence he is an elected, mad king. 
Donald Trump is fully willing to set the world on a path to WW3 as long as he can keep his ill-got money and stay out of jail for his crimes over the years – ​as long as he can “win” , as he often says. And if he can’t win, he will blow the whole thing up trying. That is what we are witnessing right now, not only in world affairs, but in our domestic affairs as well. 
​This statement I am asking you to make today has the goal of ​taking the world off ​the path to WW3, which we are now fully on. I think we need to hear something like what I have written below.  There are now many here in the USA who want Trump out asap, even within the GOP. You and other world leaders can help in that effort with a statement you can fashion in your own words along these lines. 

To my citizens, American citizens and all global citizens on planet Earth:
After Donald Trump became president, it soon became clear to me​, as well as most sober people, that he was willing to lie to his own people, on a daily basis with no remorse.

I asked myself this: If Trump is willing to lie to his own people to “win”, as he calls it, then how can he be trusted to keep his deals and former agreements with foreigners?   

The conclusion that I, and most world leaders have now reached is that Donald Trump can not be trusted to be honorable.  The rulers of over 200 sovereign nations on this planet all know this down deep now.  This is not to say we don’t trust the good will of the American people. We do.

But North Korea and Iran are still sovereign countries​ and like all sovereign countries, they have a duty and right to defend themselves. If the USA wants foreign powers, including North Korea and Iran, to stop protecting themselves, ​that is something no sovereign country can rightly be asked to do without considerable and understandable resistance. ​

If the USA wants to negotiate about de-escalating tensions with foreign powers,  like North Korea, Iran and others, I now believe they ​first ​need to find a way to install a new president whose words can be fully trusted on the world stage. They do not have that now.

Only a fool would negotiate honestly with Donald Trump. He has proven that over and over again, first as a citizen and now as the US president.

Thank You my Dear American friends. We are here for you. 

Something like that needs to be heard from Teresa May, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron – and other respected world leaders. That way it won’t seem like partisan politics. 

We are living in a world community now. ​ Words started this war. Words can end it. Silence can not.​

Trump counts on being the only one who is willing to make outrageous statements. ​
​Yes, I realize what I wrote seems a bit outrageous. But if one person plays dirty, and the others play according to Hoyle, the cheater will usually win. That’s all Trump has ever known – cheating to win. I learned that from his casino operations in the 1980’s. I was there. 
If you would say something sincere, along these lines, which I happen to believe is probably a fairly accurate portrayal of your stance on Trump, I do believe it will ​help us all on planet earth.​ We are mostly hoping he will soon be discharged of his duties.
We need some help from the world stage leaders, the way we helped 75​ years ago.

I will be sending emails like this to the heads of state in Germany, Australia and Iran as well. Listen to what is being said this week on the news here in the USA​.

I ask all global citizens to contact their presidents and senators. Let’s get this done. 
The timing will be perfect ​now. No time to lose.  We have a genuine mad maniac in charge here now. Hitler was such a maniac. ​He was elected as well, by a similar distraught electorate as well. 

Etymology teaches us: The MA in maniac is the same ma that is in drama. It means large – as in major, mad and magnify. The mad, maniacal drama we are witnessing since Trump took the helm is the exact opposite of the cool-handed leadership we sorely need right now. Trump is like a hot fuse in a room filled with nitroglycerin. A simple unintended accident now and the word goes boom. 

All it will take to win this war of words, is words. No bombs, no bullets, no troops. How nice, right? We need influential people to deliver some thoughtful heartfelt words to the world stage. GOP politicians here will soon realize they will mostly be voted out of power in 2018. And to the GOP I say, it’s not for “not repealing Obama-care that you will fall. It is because you stand with the mad king, Donald Trump, in spite of what you know to be true: Donald Trump is a dunce, a sell-out and a traitor. 

We can do this world. Thank you for your careful consideration to this plan and for circulating it. We are all global citizens. We all have a stake in peace. I am just trying to do what I can as a citizen. I hope that is appreciated. JA




The Etymology of Anthony Scaramucci

We all sense something funny about the word Scaramucci. This post will reveal why we feel that, and what it means.  Let’s start with MUCCI.

MUCCI is an Italian root word for MOUTH. The are several English words that make this clear. A SMOOCH is a kiss. There’s also MUNCH, something done with the mouth. The S-prefix denotes motion – a moving mouth is a kiss.  The S-denotes motion because of the continuing sound of SSS. Many S-words convey motion for this reason: SKI, SWIM, SHOO, SHOE, SWIRL, SAUNTER, SHAKE, SHIP, SEND, SERVE. There are hundreds.

And SCARA means exactly what it seems to say: SCARY. The SC-prefix has to do with MOTION (S) and CUTTING (C). Words like SCRATCH, SCRAPE and SCISSORS reflect that motion and cutting. And the AR sound often reflects a sort of HARD or ARDUOUS sense. AARGH! The word SCAR fits right in here as well.

scaramucciSo Anthony, I’m afraid your last name means SCARY MOUTH! And you seem to be one who lives up to that meaning, whether you knew it or not. You wanna do something about this? Let’s take it outside! Yeah. That guy.

ANTHONY has a totally different meaning. The AN prefix is the ancient Sumerian word for SKY. It evolved simply because when saying AN (AHN) there are two physical things going on. #1. AH is a large sound. #2. When you say N your tongue ends up on the roof of your mouth. So AHN is large and up like the SKY.

The THONY part is easy. The TH has evolved to be a D sound in English. The easiest way to understand that process is to say BOTTLE and notice you say D but it reads T. So leaving off the Y ending, the THON becomes DON. And we all know what a DON is in Italian. A DON is a ruler or god of sorts. ANTHONY means ruler of the sky – or a god.

So Anthony Scaramucci literally means the god with a scary big mouth. He’s no god. But he does work for a don! And he is a big-mouth. He is exactly what his name means. A man who lives up to his name. A big mouth.
