Odd timing? (or not)

So, on 9 February 2019 the Top5s channel on Youtube put out this video about remote viewing and Project Stargate:

The video, while interesting and well presented on its own, also states up front that it is also promoting a documentary titled Third Eye Spies, about the same subject matter and due to be released 1 March 2019.

Here is a trailer for the film:

No big deal in and of itself, it would seem.  What I find odd is that just days before the release of this new film, John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight program on HBO puts out a major piece trashing psychics as phonies.

You can watch the video here:

Now I understand what the video was getting at, there are lots of charlatans out there preying on people.  His focus is on rip-off artists.  But he basically tars every person claiming to have psychic abilities with the same brush, which strikes me as not right.  And the timing of the release just strikes me as, well, odd.  Coincidence?  Some entity’s attempt to help discredit research into psychic phenomena?  As they say, you decide.

 

About the U.S. government shutdown…

Personally, I think that every federal worker not being paid should immediately stop reporting to work.  Every one of them.  They should stay away until their jobs are funded through the remainder of the fiscal year and they are assured of being paid for all their unpaid work.  This will cause chaos and hardship.  So be it.  The Trump administration has already foisted chaos upon us all for a useless vanity project.  They created this mess and can make it go away any time they choose to do so.  Force them to choose.

Here is one example of a consequence of a total walkout:  Imagine the pressure that will be brought to bear on the White House when all commercial airline traffic stops due to the lack of air traffic controllers.  The federal workers have the power to force an end, if they choose to exert it.

Trumpism = Perversion

According to the Oxford Living Dictionaries:

perversion

noun
1  Distortion or corruption of the original course, meaning, or state of something.

 

 Some examples:

 

The American fascists are most easily recognized by their deliberate perversion of truth and fact. Their newspapers and propaganda carefully cultivate every fissure of disunity, every crack in the common front against fascism.
Henry Wallace

 

No oppression is so heavy or lasting as that which is inflicted by the perversion and exorbitance of legal authority.
Samuel Johnson

 

When you have both parties who will not find ways to compromise, who won’t meet in the middle, you have paralysis. It’s the perversion of idealism.
Beau Willimon

 

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.
Abraham Lincoln
