…a day before that, Trump Tower in NYC was apparently on fire, leading to this disturbingly iconic image:
I was busy researching for my series Messenger Shiva at the time, one of the themes of which is 9/11. Another gem I only realized by watching some of those videos again (after like…over a decade at least?) was the person who was head of the FBI when 9/11 happened & spearheaded a lot of that investigation.
Robert Mueller. He officially became FBI director one week before 9/11.
Mueller also provided critical testimony in 2003 in favor of America invading Iraq:
“[s]even countries designated as state sponsors of terrorism—Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Cuba and North Korea—remain active in the United States and continue to support terrorist groups that have targeted Americans. As Director Tenet has pointed out, Secretary Powell presented evidence last week that Baghdad has failed to disarm its weapons of mass destruction, willfully attempting to evade and deceive the international community. Our particular concern is that Saddam Hussein may supply terrorists with biological, chemical or radiological material.”
We’ll come full-circle with all this once this week-in-review reaches its close.
Going back to Trump Tower, the lone victim in the fire was 67-year-old art dealer Todd Brassner, who hated Trump, hated living in the Tower, and said he couldn’t sell his apartment and get out because of Trump’s bad reputation. Brassner had known Andy Warhol and reportedly had millions of dollars in art, collectables, and rare guitars in that apartment, including the original screenplay for Blade Runner.
By the time the firemen reached the Brassner residence, it was “virtually entirely on fire.” Everything assumed lost…including, of course, Brassner himself.
A couple days after the fire, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen gets his office raided by the Feds. Trump, in his extreme anger, at one point tweets that this is all “A WITCH HUNT!!!”
Now, Donnie has used the “witch hunt” thing in tweets many times in the past; it’s fodder for the political cartoonists (like Jim Carrey) for sure. It’s an interesting choice for Trump to cast himself continually as the persecuted witch, as that’s usually a female archetype.
Anyway: this all leads to the speculation that Muller, who had been allowed to successfully finish his 9/11 investigation way back when, is going to get canned from his Russia probe. We get a lot of “we have to protect Mueller!” stuff happening on Twitter, some people comparing him to a “real life superhero” and saying he should be portrayed by Tom Hanks (who is even more special than a real-life superhero).
But we’ll get back to this Mueller thing in a bit. Instead, let’s look at this joke “occult ritual” Will Farrell performed on The Chris Gethard Show around the same few days as the fire, the SNL “Donnie Darko” Trump sketch, and the Cohen raid:
Ferrell will close out the week several days later in a freak SUV accident.
(consult my post “You’ve Created A Joke Religion And It Became Real: What Do You Do Now?”)
As for Trump…he closed out the week by bombing Syria, which literally provoked his long-time supporter Alex Jones to cry.
You see…Trump was “supposed” to be “different” than the big-bad warmongers like George W. Bush. GWB has always been accused by the conspiracy theorists and anti-war people on the left and right as having “trumped up” (if you will excuse the expression) evidence of weapons in Iraq in order to invade the country.
But this “betrayal” by Trump…who could have seen it coming? What possible things has Trump done to give any intimation whatsothefuckever that he might not be a man of his word???
But you have…Mueller, who is the “bad guy” as far as pro-Trump people are concerned, and the “good guy” as far as the “Resistance” is concerned…backing up the argument to invade Iraq way back when. And further, throwing Syria in the mix as another country we need to attack/invade.
And now Trump…attacked Syria (ON FRIDAY THE 13th!!!). After…running as the candidate who was going to be “different” and “drain the swamp.” After criticizing Obama for invading Syria.
But Trump and Mueller…are on different “sides,” right?
So…I’m just trying to figure out who the good guys and bad guys are, folks.
But I should stop trying to figure out who the good guys and the bad guys are, because that is what got ALL of us in this mess in the first place—a long, long time ago, thinking in terms of “good guys” and “bad guys” as if we were still little children (or men in their 40s) reading comic books.
As I wrote in my recent examination of the rabbit archetype:
“…the rabbit is not a “clean,” easy-going sorta resurrection type figure. He’s adept at traveling the underground and above-ground worlds. He can be somewhat “crafty”…
The rabbit is a Trickster. He is the “god” of the “grey area,” the murk.
This is the symbol that is ruling this month. It makes everything backwards; and forces you to look at things in a new perspective. And so you have a Trump-hater like Joe Scarborough praising Trump for the bombing of Syria, and Alex Jones literally telling the president to go fuck himself.
But the cherry on the fucking cupcake is Trump declaring, on the Syria srike—basically, quoting GWB—”Mission Accomplished.”
We have truly come full circle.
