A Fork-in-the-Road Approaches: 95 Revelations from July, 2018

A Fork-in-the-Road Approaches: 95 Revelations from July, 2018 by UNCola – The Burning Platform

Beginning in May of this year (for April), this blogger had the idea to track linked internet headlines from various link-aggregating websites as documented transitions and arrange them into catalogued anthologies. The goal was to map a veritable road, if you will, on the way toward future revelations.

Beyond that, the series of encyclopedic atomization was meant for posterity, a means to compare tracking from previous months, and assembled in outright defiance against increasing internet censorship and memory-holedsearch engine results.

Predictably, like dots formulated into patterns on a grid, or in a matrix, so too have trends come into better focus as we continue our monthly trek toward the 2018 Midterm Elections.

As stated by this blogger before, President Donald Trump is the manifestation of one of the following three possibilities:

A.) The Real Thing

B.) Serving the agenda of the global financial elite unwittingly

C.) Controlled opposition as a Judas Goat or Trojan Horse

If B or C, he was installed to bleed the remaining air out of the brake-lines before the big stop; a last gasp, if you will.  America’s death rattle.

If A – then Trump is truly at war against the Financial-Military Industrial Complex, and if he loses, then the musical artist Frank Zappa described what will happen next:

The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.

– Frank Zappa

Therefore, if the war in government is real, the midterm elections would represent a fork-in-the road, so to speak.  If the Republicans do well, Trump could (possibly) be provided some breathing room to continue with his professed agenda.  If, on the other hand, the Democrats win big – it would be perceived as a mandate against Trump, and ensure a further loss of support for the President in the GOP; even as congressional impeachment proceedings commence in the House.

In any case, while traveling toward the approaching fork-in-the-road, it should be no surprise that July was a very eventful month.  In fact, the overall itemized compilation was likely too sizable (over 8,000 words) for most web surfers to process adequately and enjoyably during the course of their busy day.

Consequently, and with that in mind, the FULL LIST for July 1-31, 2018 was compiled and placed right here  should anyone wish to take the time to read it all through.

Accordingly, the items below represented what I consider to be the most identifiable 95 signposts on our mid-summer’s journey to either making America Great Again or into a neo-Orwellian hell on earth.

Again, for the reader’s convenience, the revelations are sorted into the same category headings that were utilized last month and the month prior.  For those blog-rolling on a breakneck blitz and wanting to bypass the piddling incidentals, there are some concluding comments and questions at the very end:

The American Experiment

(Short List # / Full List #)

1 / 4.)  Two days prior to the Fourth of July, vandals threw a brick through the window of the Nebraska Republican Party’s headquarters in Lincoln, Nebraska and spray-painted “ABOLISH ICE” in blood-red capital letters there.

2 / 7.) In the Democratic National Committee’s annual Fourth of July statement, chairman Tom Perez said “our most fundamental values are under attack” and lamented the “problems” of low-paying jobs, health care, immigration, injustice to people of color and members of the LGBTQ community, a recent Supreme Court decision on public unions,  and the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. He also expressed concerns that “thousands of children have been separated from their parents at our southern border,” and added:

At our highest court, workers’ rights are being taken away, voting rights are under assault, Muslim Americans are being discriminated against for their faith, and women’s right to choose is under threat like never before.

3 / 9.) In the aftermath of Rep. Maxine Waters calling for unwarranted harassment of Trump administration officials,  nearly 200 black female leaders and allies wrote a letter to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer excoriating them for their “failure” to protect Rep. Maxine Waters from “unwarranted attacks from the Trump administration and others in the GOP”.

4 / 11.) A Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll showed immigration as a top issue for U.S. voters, with the economy as a close second.

5 / 14.)  Texas land owners reported receiving letters from the government notifying them that their land will be surveyed for “tactical infrastructure, such as a border wall”.

6 / 15.) As President Trump nominated U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court who believes judges must “interpret the U.S. Constitution as written” and “not make law”, the Democrats, in turn, vowed “the fight of a lifetime” to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court.  Senate Democrats later conspired in a plan to stall Kavanaugh’s nomination process.

7 / 18.) Republican alarm bells were sounded upon reports of Democrats having registered 12 million more voters.

8 / 19.)  It was reported that a huge child-sex-trafficking ring was exposedby Trump’s enforcement of the Zero-Tolerance border policy.

9 / 24.) Non-citizens legally registered to vote in San Francisco school elections as Republicans pushed back against the “noncitizen voting push in liberal jurisdictions”.

10 / 26.) July was revealed to have been a “busy month for illegal immigrants committing heinous crimes” as “an illegal immigrant who had been deported eleven times attacked his wife with a chainsaw in front of their children, another got charged with a series of violent rapes and dozens were arrested for operating a major human and drug smuggling enterprise in a major U.S. city”.
