THE GREAT DIVERSION

Published / by Lee Kessler / 1 Comment on THE GREAT DIVERSION

On Aug. 8, 2022, the Media, the Congress, and We the People took the bait. We fell for the diversion, and are still mesmerized by it. The FBI raid on former President Trump’s residence–unprecedented, and likely completely unwarranted though it was– was just a diversion.

Would the raid have happened anyway? Yes, most likely given the repugnant and inflammatory tone of American politics these days. In reality, this heinous act will be resolved legally and politically, and we all know that. But just as people gawk as they drive by accidents on the highway, and just they are drawn to impending train wrecks like moths to a flame, so too were we on the morning of Aug. 8. drawn in.

Perhaps it is because I write political suspense novels inspired by current events, but my eye turned immediately to what was missing on that day, not what was blatantly covered wall to wall by all Media. Another drama was setting up. This one will effect us all much more profoundly, and for a much longer period of time.

Here’s the real attack, in my opinion. I was aware there was a full court press in the Senate to pass the Inflation Reduction Act, and I learned they were working through the night Sunday. In the wee hours of Monday, Aug. 8, the Senate passed that bill–sneaking it through before the CBO report would come out Monday morning. They obviously knew the report was going to show that the act would not reduce inflation. And they wanted it passed before the Press or the American people started to dig into the CBO report, and begin calling their Congressmen and women. Ask yourself, who passes something without knowing what the impact of that something will be or will not be? Are they a fool, an incompetent? Or just plain malevolent.

The report did come out Monday morning, and just as I was listening to the beginning reporting on it, everything was interrupted by Breaking News about the FBI raid at Mar-a Lago–also done in the wee hours. Once news of that broke, all reporting shifted to the political aspects of what had happened. Coverage has predominantly stayed focused in that direction. As a writer of prophetic political fiction, I believe the raid on the Trump residence was timed to mitigate the fall-out of the CBO report. That bill had only passed the Senate. It needed to pass the House, and if constituents had time to hear about the report, digest some of the report, and contact their representatives, some Democrats might have broken ranks and defeated it.

However, under cover of the massive attention-grabbing diversion of the flashing blue lights and dozens of people entering the famed Mar-a-Lago, Speaker Pelosi could quietly go about her business of getting the vote on the Inflation Reduction Act. On Aug. 15, it passed and,having been signed by the President, is now law.

Attention periodically gets pointed to the innards of that bill which includes the massive funding of the IRS, and the adding of tens of thousands of new IRS agents. Once passed, however, nothing can stop that sneak attack. If you think the abuse of power exercised against Donald J. Trump was bad, just wait to you experience the abuse of power the IRS can and will levy against YOU.

Pretty slick, huh? Stage a provocative diversion, and then sneak the bill through, with the camouflaged IRS expansion visible, but never presented front and center to the American people. Our representatives did not give us any time to review the bill, weigh in on what we liked and didn’t like, and potentially stop something we felt was very dangerous in the short and long run. No, they just rammed it down your throats while you were arguing whether or not the DOJ was engaged in an abuse of power regarding President Trump.

Media and pundits are sounding the alarm now. They are right to do so. But, they are too late. We took the bait. We diverted our attention away from something that effects every American directly and immediately.

Now also do you begin to understand why the warrant, which was gained under the pretext that it was SO URGENT that a full-scale seizure had to occur, was not executed until Monday morning in the wee hours? It is not a conspiracy theory to recognize that the timing of that was to insure it was a diversion, and that no one would really read or appreciate a dry accounting report when they had the more salacious Media circus to watch. Common sense tells you that if it were that urgent they would have executed it Friday. Why Monday? And why just as or before the CBO report came out to warn the American people that all was not as it seemed in the numbers, and the deceptive name of the Bill?

We the People are now in the sad cross hairs of an agency that can invade your privacy without a warrant. They can attack at will. Once again, the American citizen can be viewed as “guilty by accusation.” They can snoop, seize assets, demand documents and proof, and take your “treasure.” Anyone who has ever had a sudden and unexpected audit knows exactly what I am referring to, and how intimidating the process can be for the normal, honest American.

What’s wrong with a government agency whose very return address on the envelope causes one to quake? You know what I am talking about!

We took the bait. And we were reeled in.

When Do I Get Paroled?

Published / by Lee Kessler / Leave a Comment

In a country of laws and Due Process, the criminal—after he is arrested, tried, convicted, and sentenced–knows how long his sentence is, and, most importantly, when he will be eligible for parole.  If he is good, and behaves himself, he can reenter the society at the time of parole.

So, here is my question. HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO BE HEALTHY AND NOT GET COVID BEFORE I AM PAROLED?  Is it 2 years (already passed)?   Is it 5?  Is it until I am 90?  If I am still Covid-free when I die, will you parole me posthumously?  Will you even consider the tiniest possibility that you were perhaps wrong, or misinformed yourself? 

You may ask, paroled from what?  From excoriation, discrimination, ridicule, censorship, and exclusion from the freedoms I once had.  And what am I guilty of?   Being healthy!   And, being scientifically curious!

Under Due Process also, the inmate gets to appeal his conviction.   He gets to challenge whether he was fairly and honestly convicted. New evidence may surface and be presented. My fellow countrymen, you know the drill here.  So, here is my question—on behalf of millions of us.  WHY CAN’T WE ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VIRUS, AND ITS ORIGINS—IF FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN FOR PREVENTION IN THE FUTURE?  Why can’t we have questions about vaccines? Why can’t we favor therapeutics over vaccines like we do with most other diseases?

The bottom line is that intellectual curiosity is warranted.  It is the American thing.  Intellectual integrity demands it. That too is an American thing.  No one can trust self-proclaimed authorities who lack intellectual integrity.  No one.

So what do you say?  Parole your fellow Americans and start talking to one another.   Start asking honest questions.  And demand honest answers from those “authorities.”  That too is the American thing.

NO SOONER SAID THAN DONE!

That sword cuts two ways.  In the same week as we released the novel, “White King and the Seat at the Table,” which is a prophetic look at a world being planned for us—no matter our politics–the real world came colliding into the story, once again making the novel appear real.

If you have already read the new book, get it out and get ready to read pages 53 and 54 again.   If you have the new book, but have not read it, I implore you to open it up and read as quickly as you can to pages 53 and 54.  (This is a suspense novel, so you will be able to read quickly!)  And, if you have not secured your copy yet, do so.  For one of the early readers put it this way, “Read it like your life depends upon it because it does—yours and generations to come.”

By now some of you are saying, “All right, Ms. Kessler, what’s the hullabaloo about?  What’s the event you are sounding an alarm on?

On October 28 Mark Zuckerberg announced Meta—a senior platform that will shepherd us into the future.   Before you rush headlong into blissful virtual reality, and embrace the opening salvo of a mighty game you are being sucked into, slow down, take a deep breath, read the novel, and then decide just how desirable is this brave new world Mr. Zuckerberg has created and will continue to evolve.  While you are pausing, look into Metaverse—its current applications, and its future potentiality.

I have spent the last 15 years writing about a specialized form of influence, now called Perception Management.   Formerly, you more likely understood it as information warfare or some such thing. 

The problem is actually simpler than you might guess.  It has to do with the anatomy of traps.  First and foremost a trap—any trap—is appealing.   It is attractive, and it holds something desirable in it.  Would that the most menacing and sinister traps that have been tearing us apart had devil’s horns, red fiery eyes, and breathed fire into your face.

Regrettably, that is not the case.  A good trap—a real trap—will seduce you.   It will titillate you. It will give you warm fuzzies about how fun and convenient it is.  It will stroke your ego with how futuristic and open-minded you are, and how you are part of the “in crowd.”  But, make no mistake, a trap is a trap.

And you now have a huge one staring you right in the face.  All I ask is that you digest this novel before you step through the portals of this new age entry into the future.  There is still time.

One last caveat:  I would have preferred to have been wrong about every issue I fictionalized in the “White King Series.” Alas, I was not.   History bore me out.  So, don’t dismiss or devalue this short Blog.  I do believe we are “right over the target” here.

“White King and the Seat at the Table”–Update

Published / by Lee Kessler / Leave a Comment

Launch Plus Two Weeks. It has only been two weeks since the launch of “White King and the Seat at the Table,” and the buzz is STRONG on this book. First, a recent comment from a dentist whose wife “disappeared” after the book launch.  Here’s what he wrote, “ She just finished reading your new book.   I haven’t seen her for a couple of days because she couldn’t put it down.  She said it is masterfully crafted.  You nailed it.”

More comments are coming in each day, so I want to encourage all of you who already ordered books and want to give additional books to friends/family/colleagues/representatives etc. for Christmas, that you order NOW to allow time for printing and for shipping.  Those who plan to order, but haven’t done so yet, I encourage you to do so as well.  Everyone, just go to:  www.whitekingrising.com to order at special prices, shipping etc.

And, while you are there, watch the video of the launch.  We recorded again and edited the original night to bypass the “interruption” many of you watched unfold.  So, the current launch video on the site is a GREAT place to send people that you want to have learn about the book and hear what was covered. 

In a few weeks, once those of you who ordered then or are ordering now have had a chance to read the book, we are going to invite you to a very exclusive, private meeting to address “Operation Stone-Age Viral.”  Though fiction, the situation is real, and the solution in the book is real.  And I am eager to elaborate with you on the future plans and your “seat at the table.”  For those of you who are asking, “what is Operation Stone-Age Viral?”—just keep reading!

You’re the best,

Lee

WE LAUNCHED!!

WHITE KING AND THE SEAT AT THE TABLE” LAUNCH, FIRST TWO DAYS, AND REBROADCAST

Well, the booked launched on Nov. 3!!  And, for those who were there watching it live, you know a most unusual occurrence happened right near the beginning of my talk.  The viewer could not know what happened, and my wonderful guests stood in for me until I could resume.   Let’s just say what was happening on my side resembled a scene from the novel itself!  You should ask me about it sometime, especially if you need confirmation that this book is “over the target.”

The good news is that the following night we did Take Two on my launch talk, edited it with the insightful and inspiring opening with the five guys from the first night, and have posted it on www.whitekingrising.com  So, for those who would like to watch it again, without the disruption that occurred, just go to the site.

For those who had planned to attend, but were unable to, go to the site and watch it.

For those who had not planned to attend, you may want to do so now.  Here’s why:

The book launched on the evening of WEDNESDAY Nov. 3.  Though people were just able to order their books that night, some found ways of getting into Kindle before they even got their signed copies in their hand.  By FRIDAY people had already finished reading it–in two days.  Here are some of their comments:

“…I started reading it on Kindle because I couldn’t wait for the book to arrive, and want you to know you are messing up my schedule!”  Wink, wink

“I finished your book this morning.   I stayed up way too late last night because I could not put it down. Can I get you to do an interview, and get you to come to the Northwest?”

“OMG!  Your new book is a knockout!!”

“We are going to make this a best seller!!!” 

Two events were booked that night for Spokane, Wa. and Sarasota, Fl.   Discussions are commencing for many more.

Thank you all! I encourage you all, once you read it, to post review comments on www.whitekingrising.com , and to go to Amazon and post reviews there. This is just the beginning!
