The soft coup attempt staged by Obamanistas and Clintonistas in the wake of their failed election efforts in 2016 may turn into the critical driver in an expected upcoming further market meltdown.  We have circled March 19th and 22nd.

This is, indeed, an event never-before seen – at least by most people who are young and politically active today.

Yet there was another “near-miss” with such a fate back in 1973 when then-president Richard Nixon was hounded out of office for covering-up a Republican break-in at the Democrat Party headquarters in Washington’s Watergate Hotel.

Historians generally miss the market angle to this slice of history for a simple reason:  Gas Lines.

Distractions – regardless of the pain to the public –  at times of political crisis are a standard modus operandi. To quote the relevant historical data from Wikipedia:

“The 1973 oil crisis began in October 1973 when the members of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries proclaimed an oil embargo. The embargo was targeted at nations perceived as supporting Israel during the Yom Kippur War.[1] The initial nations targeted were Canada, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States with the embargo also later extended to Portugal, Rhodesia and South Africa. By the end of the embargo in March 1974,[2] the price of oil had risen from US$3 per barrel to nearly $12 globally; US prices were significantly higher. The embargo caused an oil crisis, or “shock”, with many short- and long-term effects on global politics and the global economy.[3] It was later called the “first oil shock”, followed by the 1979 oil crisis, termed the “second oil shock.”

While the Oil Embargo was a major factor in market declines of the era, it’s important to see the rhyme to contemporary events:  A President under suspicion of wrong-doing.

To see this, we need to specifically recall Watergate timing:

“The Watergate scandal was a major political scandal that occurred in the United States during the early 1970s, following a break-in by five men at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C. on June 17, 1972, and President Richard Nixon‘s administration’s subsequent attempt to cover up its involvement. “

The resignation of Nixon didn’t come until two years later.  He left office in early August of 1974. 25-months.

The critical rhymes to consider, are as follows:

The Middle East Connection

The oil embargo of 1973 resulted in gas lines.  It was driven by OPEC.  This was payback against the West for supporting Israel in the Middle East.

We note that is not presently the likely driver for another Oil Embargo.  Yet, Middle East interests similarly have their “knickers in knots” about internal finances in Saudi Arabia.  There has also been some speculation around the edges of contemporary media that the “unsolved” killing spree in Las Vegas may have been a paralleled event; it has been speculated that the mass killing there was an assassination of a Saudi prince gone terrible bad.

So, there is an energy component.

Slow-Motion Discovery of Crimes

We next look at the “crime time to unraveling” that took place proximate to the ’73 gas lines.

The Watergate break-in was June of ’72.  Nixon resigned August of ’74.  About a 25-month timeline from commission (of omission – the cover-up) and the unraveling of the plot.

Today, we are 15-months from the unexpected (by The Establishment/Network) win by Donald Trump.  It should by now be clear that there was a conspiracy at the highest levels of the FBI/Justice Department to sink Donald Trump’s election with an “insurance policy” – which appears to be the “Russian Collusion Narrative.”

A moment’s thought it all it takes to dismiss this as a false narrative because Vladimir Putin is no idiot.  Putin likely didn’t want Trump; Clinton would have been his pony in the race.

Place yourself in Putin’s position and ask “Which presidential hopeful would you want to negotiate with?”

Choice #1:  Some who wrote (with a co-author, but nevertheless) “The Art of the Deal.”  Got money, got women, got notoriety.

Choice #2: Or, would you want to deal with an already socialist-leaning liberal female; one who could not leave a cheating husband who embarrassed a whole country, and one who was loaded with ambition – almost at any price?  And one who wanted to nationalize healthcare.

To me, and I think Putin, it’d be a simple choice; though to others, perhaps not.

Notwithstanding, we can see how the soft coup against Trump has been progressing.  The democrats are losing, but they are far from finished.

A year into the Mueller investigation – and still no evidence of collusion – but MANY INDICATORS are now damning both Clinton AND Obama –  as we see the battle lines of their soft coup attempt in stark relief.

To wit:

The liberals control the upper echelons of Wall St. We note with alarm that the possibly criminal actions of Clinton allies and associates (and with recent additional emails, Obama, too) has literally been drun off the front page by financially-driven stories.

Wallets beat intrigue, especially when murky enough to overload the average IQ of America.  Which is 100, by the way, by definition.

Democrats reacted poorly to the #ReleaseTheMemo as their members on the House Intel committee made much about wanting to release their own version of events.

But it became clear the Trump administration had not one but two ways to kill that narrative and blow it back on the soft coup perps.

One way would have been for Trump to simply sign-off on whatever the dem’s on the Intel committee spewed, then flipping blame on them for detracting from American sources and methods of intel collection.  I could hear it coming “This is what these crooks wanted…so here’s how they are ruining the country…”

The second option would have been to hand whatever the dem’s came up with to the FBI and let them do the redacting.  That, too, would have been a good move by Trump.

The Soft Coup Under Pressure

Events have taken a decided turn for the worse from the Obamanista’s perspective with the release today of stories that the then-sitting president (Obama) wanted to be fully in the loop in the Clinton email probe.  A probe that (look surprised, please) resulted in a whitewash by the FBI.

From the UK Daily Mail:

‘NEW FBI TEXTS ARE BOMBSHELLS!’: Trump blasts out revelations about new messages between FBI lovers showing Obama wanted to be briefed on EVERYTHING happening in Clinton email investigation.

This leaves the soft coup desperate to open a new front.  Using battlefield tactics, today we discern three new fronts opened:

None of this last story has a damn thing to do with Trump BUT it’s been floated since the middle of last year.

I kid you not:  Go read Jeanette Manfra’s testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee 21 June 2017 here.

So the multiple stories today (Google news search result) is really nothing new, except that it does confirm that the Soft Coup proponents are still firmly in control of the leftist media – and are now recycling this story to lay the groundwork for a Mueller story to come by and by.

By the way, the soft coup also includes people like George W. Bush who is feeding into the soft coup narrative by saying he believes there was Russian “meddling.”

From the Bushistas’ standpoint, it could be an honest remark made to dishonest media, OR it could be sour grapes that the Bush family lost control of the GOP with the tanking of Jeb Milquetoast against Trump in 2016 campaign.  Water (or milk…) under the bridge.

It’s really a God-awful mess when viewed from the high level.  Obama-Clinton actively conspiring before and after the election of Trump to bury the emails, and then to overthrow and impede a duly elected president.  But that doesn’t seem to bother anyone.

Except is should.

Because it belies American Civil War 3.0 that appears to be in play right now.  Knowing the Revolution was the first, the Civil War was the second, we see today’s event as a spectacularly obvious Soft Coup Attempt as the third.

Yet, we are not alone in this nearly outlandish view.  (We can’t call this cconspiratorial because it’s all backed by data, we’re sad to report.)

A thoughtful analysis from our military affairs advisor (“warhammer“) confirms the concept:

“In light of recent revelations about FBI agent Lisa Page’s texts stating (on September 2nd, 2016)  that “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing,”  I am left pondering the reality of a present day Civil War within the hallowed halls of American government.

This civil war is not a shooting war – not yet!  By all appearances and evidence to-date, there is a bona fide cloak and dagger conflict brewing over the ideological direction of the nation.  The facts are murky, in large part due to the secretive, SCOTUS approved Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court, first established in 1978 to adjudicate surveillance warrants related to foreign spying.  FISA requests are rarely turned down due to the inherent trust placed in the intelligence agencies wielding their immense power.

This sounds all like American ‘mom and apple pie’ stuff, using secret warrants to smoke out the bad guys and protect the USA.  But it took a Constitutional Law schooled President to weaponized this process for political purposes, something the SCOTUS likely never imagined possible in the land of the free.  The rub is that once the process is hijacked by putting sympathetic ideologues in the intelligence agencies, it is difficult if not impossible to ever shed light on any transgressions due to the secrecy of the FISA process.

Yes, congressional intelligence committees can see the information after much time and deliberation, but they cannot release said information to the public without proper censoring so as to remove intelligence sources and targets from the information.  This being reality, warrants for spying on US officials are approved unnoticed by even the congressional intelligence oversight committees.  The president, who oversees the Executive Branch  and the DOJ, is also largely blind to this practice.

After a knockdown, drag out presidential campaign where Trump won the Electoral College but lost the popular vote, the nation and congress stood literally split down party lines.  The opposition Democrat party obstructs every move of the GOP.  Trump can do nothing right in the eyes of the democrats and their sympathetic MSM comrades.  The GOP turns up their collective noses at every proposition forwarded by the democrats.  In effect, an ideological wall has risen within the nation.  So bad has the rhetoric become that anything at all uttered by the opposition is immediately lambasted and discounted.  If the opposition states it, it cannot be true.

In a sense, if Putin were behind any of this, he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams.  In what is classically called a ‘shaping operation,’  America has pulled back into itself to address what many believe to be a Constitutional crisis.  The ideological war within America has impacted its ability to manage basic internal affairs, let alone lead economic and military alliances all over the globe.

So the gauntlet is thrown, the battle lines drawn.  In much the same way that ancient Rome destroyed itself from within, letting the Vandals and Goths erode the empire at the periphery, America is jousting at shadows protected by a secret court while the rest of the world descends into uncertainty.  John and Jane Q. Public will likely never know the real truth behind this affair.  If they did, they would likely do the U.S. version of ‘storming the Bastille.’  I for one would not rule out that possibility.

Channeling a patriot:

“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” ? Samuel Adams

We now return you to the usual flow of meaningless drivel and bullshit, stripped naked of context, with historical references “reinterpreted” by a liberal-run educational establishment and backed by a spectrum of true believers manning Soft Coup’s barricades; be it climate, gender, bathroom counters, foods, politics, and more.

The game is play is distract the masses and move the coup along.

Do feel free to pass this unconventional perspective along.

It’s quite possible you’ll find in your sphere there are kindred souls cursed with, as one dear friend put it, “The terrible burden of knowing.”

But, now you do.


Pick a Useless Distraction Dept.

Meanwhile, the Media Masters of the Coup are feeding the Icon-tapping Apes digital bananas like these:

Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue reps #MeToo.

They’re not celebrities. But #MeToo changed their lives. (We note CNN is rolling large on #metoo…must be a good banana.)

North Korea not interested in meeting with VP Pence: report  (NK is bananas)

Russian watchdog says to examine Facebook in second half

House passes scale-back of Obama-era menu calorie count rules (but not the bananas?)

Schumer: Deal is sprout of bipartisanship (whatever the hell that means)

And from the State Department: Press Releases: Inaugural Meeting of the Cuba Internet Task Force.

ViseGrips anyone?

Markets are going up – slightly – at the open.

We still have lower targets and if you believe in Elliott, this may be the wave 4 (rally) of a five wave decline that we fear will be the mega Wave 1 down.

If it is, big rally up and then….bigger wave 3 down.

Our March dates?  That’s about when wave 3 down should be ready to roll.  If, that is, things are still looking back for the soft coup perps.  Keep an eye on Washington’s rugs and look what goes under them in coming weeks.

Moron the ‘morrow.  Though shorter and to the pointer, lol.
