Q Anon True Believers Assert that Mar a Lago Now Houses a Duplicate, Parallel White House Governing US Under Trump’s Command, Meaning that Biden was Never Really Inaugurated; Because of Q Anon’s Abysmal Batting Average in Predictions, Another Big Public Test for the Pro-Trump Oracle is Fast Approaching: They Claim that Trump is Still in Power and Preparing a Comeback in the Form of His Own Inauguration for His Second Term on March 4, the Pre-FDR Inauguration Day; But Will Q Deliver?; If GOP Merges with Q Anon, will Reactionary Camp be Stronger or Weaker? 

This Rejection of Reality Recalls the Pretenders Who Claimed They Were the Rightful Heirs to European Thrones; Most Frequent Examples Were Found in Tsarist Russia, from the False Dimitri During the Time of Troubles to the Don Cossack Emilian Pugachov, Who Spearheaded a 1770s Peasant Insurrection on the Lower Volga Against Catherine the Great; Pugachov Assembled a Court of Miracles that Tried to Duplicate the Imperial Court in St. Petersburg: Pugachov Claimed to Be Tsar Peter III, the Husband Eliminated by Catherine; There Were also Fake Courtiers and Fake Nobles; Paintings Show How Capital Punishment was Meted Out by Rebels; Pugachov Did Not Last Long;

Four Epiphanies for the First Week of the New Year: 

First, Georgia: Trump Demands the Ouster of Republican Governor Kemp for Insufficient Zeal; Don also Condemns Secretary of State Raffensperger for Alleged Communist Chinese Ties of Alleged Brother; Trump States that GOP Politicians Who Oppose $2,000 per Taxpayer Relief Checks; Thanks to this Chaos, Democrats Ossoff and Warnock Have Real Chance to Win in Jan. 5 Double Run-Off for Senate;

Second: Trump Camp Hyping Jan. 6 Protests Against Honest of Electoral Votes in Congress; Sen. Hawley of Missouri Defies Orders from Mitch and Thune, Pledges to Object to Legal Slates of Electors, Threatening to Slit GOP and Make Unprincipled Opportunists Choose Between Legality and Loyalty to Trump; 

Three: Will there be Demos in Washington DC and Other Cities? Will They Be Violent? Plan is to Use Conflict to Declare Martial Law and Cancel Results of November 3 Ballot in Battleground States Trump Lost;

Four: Pentagon Bigwigs Refuse to Brief Biden Transition About What They Are Doing, Raising Specter of Autogolpe and Putsch; Why Are Kash Patel and Cohn-Watnick Tampering with NSA, US Cybercommand, and FBI?; One Insider Scenario Has NSA Splitting from Cybercommand under Control of pro-Trump Bureaucrats and Joining with Decapitated FBI to Keep Usurper in Power;

Epiphany, the Biblical Arrival of the Three Magi in Bethlehem Celebrated on January 6, is Metaphorically Seen as the Moment of Truth when the Essence of Things is Made Manifest; This Year’s Epiphany Will Reveal Three Key Truths:

First Will Be the Results of the Previous Day’s Georgia Run-Off Elections, which Will Determine Control of the US Senate; A GOP Defeat for Both Seats is Vital;

Second: On January 6, the Congress Must Count the Electoral Votes Cast on December 14 and Sent to Washington; Will pro-Trump Forces Manage to Recruit One Congressman and One Senator to Protest the Slates Sent in by at Least One State?; Can These Objections Pass the Two Houses of Congress?;

Third: Can the Trump Extremists Deliver on the Duce’s Calls for Mass Protests in the Capital while the Votes Are Being Counted?; And Will These Protests Be Violent or Peaceful?

These Three Outcomes Will Provide Much Insight into the Likely Course of 2021

Truman’s Foreign Policy Was Controlled by an Anglophile Appeasement Clique Composed of Harriman, Acheson, Rusk, Marshall, and Bradley, Who Stubbornly Refused to Respond to Reality of Wider War and Set Up Absurd and Artificial Barriers to US Countermeasures Along and Across the Yalu River Border; As US Special Envoy for China, Marshall Had Ordered the July 1946 to May 1947 Embargo on US Weapons Going to Nationalist Leader Chiang Kai-Shek, while Mao Kept Getting Arms from USSR; This Embargo Guaranteed Mao’s 1949 Victory, with Huge Implications down to Today;
