The theme: Something starts off as fairly reasonable, and then is blown out of all proportion.
First, a brief recap on the secret House memo—not available to the press or public—and the reaction to it.
Purportedly, the memo will reveal that Democrat operatives—some inside the FBI and the DOJ—feloniously used a fake and fabricated “Trump dossier” to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump team during and after the 2016 presidential campaign.
The spying was then undertaken to hopefully a) gain information that would help defeat Trump in the election; and b) connect Trump to “Russian efforts” to influence the election in his favor.
Breitbart: “Members of the House on Thursday said they viewed a ‘shocking’ classified memo allegedly detailing abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigations officials in relation to the investigation of the Trump campaign and called for it to be declassified and available to the public immediately.”
“’The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,’ said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a member of the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the DOJ and the FBI.”
Another Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), called what he saw in the memo ‘sickening’ and said it was ‘worse than Watergate’.”
From this platform, some people are expressing hope that the memo will achieve everything from jailing Hillary Clinton and James Comey to “draining the whole swamp.” They claim the memo contains the answer to who murdered Seth Rich, as well as the outline of a 16-year plan to destroy the US.
And at the extreme end of THAT scenario—there are friendly extra-terrestrials in the wings offering us help.
You can find such “analyses” sweeping around online.
It’s called Rescue From Above.
It happens every time…
In this case, what starts out as a possibly explosive secret memo, which could indict key members of the FBI and DOJ and DNC, including Hillary, and exonerate Trump from charges of Russian collusion…becomes a messianic mission from higher powers to save the country and the world.
And the key is: all people have to do is sit back and wait. Rescue will happen.
—Just as the Iraqi Dinar’s meteoric rise was coming soon, years ago; and just as UFOs, on their way here for decades, will be arriving any day, to give us free energy and benevolent reprogramming for our tattered DNA—
This pattern of Rescue From Above has been sold to populations by priest classes and divine-right monarchs for centuries. It’s called bait and switch.
The underlying principle is: the individual need not do anything except sign up for the Article of Faith. In fact, nothing he can do otherwise will help.
“The State will take care of you.”
“Merging your brain with a super-computer will endow you with truth and talent beyond your wildest dreams.”
Advertising follows the same model. “Merely by buying this product, you will become better.”
This perverse approach (also of course used by organized religious organizations) limits the definition of rescue to “something coming from the outside.”
Rescue certainly doesn’t come from YOU, for YOU.
No, no, no. That would be too much to ask. If true, that would be alarming.
No. Instead, sign up for a Great Marshmallow that will encase you and give you Fulfillment at some point, hopefully soon.
Righteously arresting government criminals for serious crimes is a long way off from the Marshmallow.
One of the first articles I wrote for publication (circa 1982, LA Weekly) described how certain “Tribulation and Rapture” Christian leaders in the US were urging extremist Israeli groups to raid the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Destroying this holy Islamic Shrine would then trigger the ultimate war on the Plain of Armageddon.
But that was presented as a good thing. Because, in the process, God would lift true believers from Earth into Heaven, and the other billions of non-believers would perish in nuclear fire.
The Rescue From Above Marshmallow comes in different forms.
