Trump’s Apocalypse

Trump booksHere’s yet another book about Trump, upcoming in January 2018.  Whether you’re a true Belieber or not, it is amusing. Here are authors who believe the Earth is 6000 years old, and suggest Trump was hand-picked by God to usher in the end of the world. While they also hedge their bets, this is similar to what you find among the science deniers on Youtube, some saying Trump believes the Earth is flat, bigger everything is better, the rich are rich because God made them so (forget Christ casting out the moneychangers and loving the poor), climate change is a hoax, and/or “My God and My Guns! Re-Elect Trump!” The following is from the publisher. You decide if it’s fact or fiction. “From the authors of the bestseller The Babylon Code comes an exploration of the enigmatic prophecies surrounding the Trump presidency and the link to unfolding end-time events. It’s the biggest question on Earth. Will Trump’s presidency lead to the “Trumpocalypse”-a media meme for World War III or climate Armageddon? Or is Trump’s presidency a divine “reprieve”—a prophetic pause in the countdown to the Apocalypse? The result of a two-and-a-half-year journalistic investigation, Trumpocalypse features about fifty exclusive interviews with highly-respected geopolitical, economic, and military affairs experts, prominent faith leaders, and biblical scholars exploring not only these five-alarm questions, but also whether Trump’s presidency has thrown a cog in the plans of super-billionaires and secret societies to launch a global government, cashless society, and New Age-based religious system. Trumpocalypse explores the president’s mysterious link to the campaign to rebuild the Third Temple in Jerusalem, the prophecies and “biblical codes” involving Trump, the revolution against the globalist elites, the “economic reset” announced by International Monetary Fund officials, the occult elite’s secret plan for humanity and campaign of mass deception, why Trump and millions of ‘deplorables’ are fighting to stop the hidden agenda of the Establishment—and how the perplexing chaos enveloping the planet could paradoxically signal the beginning of the great end-times awakening. Here is an invitation to join the anti-Establishment surge–what evangelist Franklin Graham calls ‘the Christian revolution’–and discover how to fulfill your own destiny in the run-up to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.”

If artificial intelligence in the hard sense (real thoughts) is not here yet, the soft kind (with robots) definitely is. In the new Blade Runner we see replicants acting “more human than human.” Humans have become brutal or apathetic, the result of what musician/philosophy David Byrne calls our cultural disconnection. Read THIS. Driverless cars are being created to produce more time for people to be on their screens (iPhones, tablets), allowing the big four to track people everywhere, and customize ads that categorize and target. (The opening of Blade Runner 2049 shows Ryan Gosling asleep in the driver’s seat of his flying car…which is flying.) Spying is everywhere, as today, and as revealed in the books Riveted, Weapons of Math Destruction, The Filter Bubble, Utopia is Creepy, The Four, and Future Crimes. One of the unintended results of customization (besides profits) is to polarize beliefs: you never see alternative views, because The Four only show you (in search and in ads) things you already believe, including conspiracy theories and fake news. Only by reading books can you see the whole picture, because even the networks are in the pockets of advertisers and drug companies. And literacy is slowly declining as more people turn to TV and the internet for one-liners and  “factoids,” as Ray Bradbury called them in Fahrenheit 451, about burning books. One of the lines from that movie was rendered by an Overseer: “More sports for everyone.” (He meant it as a substitute for reading, to keep people in line, as slaves to the system.) A giant Coca-Cola sign is seen in both Blade Runners, as part of the brand-washing (read Brandwashed or The Coke Machine: The Dirty Truth Behind the World’s Favorite Soft Drink.) The networks, or Coke itself, never mentioned these books. It is easier to double down on cute commercials for their diabetes and cancer-causing products requiring prescription drugs to treat at massive cost (while the new Drug Czar is a former Big Pharma confidant sponsoring a bill to repress prosecution of drug distributors involved in the Opioid epidemic.) Do you doubt any of this? It may be because you didn’t hear about it on the news. They have vested interests not to tell you. To keep you in the dark. You can bet that 60 MInutes is coming under fire for their report this past Sunday. Once they (and Frontline) is shut down, along with all whistleblowers, what happens then? Blade Runner 2049 happens, for real. That’s what happens. It is predicted that climate change, if ignored until 2100, will cost $600 Trillion to fix. That’s a T, in today’s dollars. Many will need to die first. But even by next year, perhaps, terrorists can sit back and watch as a Category 5 hits Miami and wipes out all those homes now shown on “Beachfront Bargain Hunt” or “My Lottery Dream Home.” In San Francisco, building codes were ignored as people watched TV, so what happens if a 10.0 quake hits the San Andreas? Most of the city (and other cities not yet burning) reduced to rubble. What happens to the economy then? Maybe Leonardo diCaprio is right. Maybe those on Instagram posting images of his satirical movie The Wolf of Wall Street should go to his actual IG account and check it out. Coffee? Time to wake up.
