Light posting these holidays. I’m prepping for an overseas move as well as wrapping up a consulting assignment, so my days are divided between putting stuff in boxes, throwing stuff out, drawing charts and running regressions.
But just quickly: I am amazed at what I am seeing in the US, concerning the transition to a Trump administration and the ever expanding pool of information about the shenanigans of the Clinton Foundation. Hard to know what to make of it all, especially as I’m sure there is a tonne more of information that is yet to come to light (and may never do so).
It seems that a large group of people have been running the US government as their private fiefdom, for personal enrichment and to feed their perverse sexual appetites. Trump’s ascendancy threatens all of that – threatens both to uncover it and to shut it down. Which is why they fought so hard against his candidacy, and are doing everything they can to bring him down before his inauguration.
That none of it has worked, so far, is not re-assuring. These people have so much to lose, are so ruthless (just look at the way they treat children), and are in control of so many resources, that I suspect they’ll just keep escalating until they win. They’ll either try to buy Trump off, or get rid of him.
Clinton Foundation, CIA, FBI, the media, the bankers, the oil people, foreign royals. All in it together, and all with everything to lose.
Truly extraordinary. Never thought I’d see this, ever.
Take care, Don.
