Will ETs save America and Russia from their oligarchs?

  1. Lee Child is the author of the popular "Jack Reacher" novels.
  2. A mainland friend stuck his neck out a bit under yesterday's Archangel Michael's view of the spiritual path and America post at this blog:
  1. The reality of the United States is that we live in a one party system. The rich control the one party that operates under two franchises, like sports teams. The reality is that democracy and the little guy have absolutely no chance in this current system. The rest of the world refers to it as Oligarchy. In the must read book Red State, the oligarchy of Russia and its infectious nature had transmitted the disease of Oligarchy to the US, and no matter the best efforts of the Magnitsky Act, the Oligarchy has taken over America. There is no deep state being fought by a crusading trickster- it is all just a matter of how much money any person is willing to throw at a problem, and to further that- it is a matter of whether the person throwing the money has the right people in their pockets.

    The common man has neither an important person in his pockets, nor does he does he have unlimited funds to fight the Oligarchy. This is as true for the Russian Federation as for the United States
  2. I think Bill Browder's book, which details how he persuaded Congress to pass the Magnitsky Act over the opposition of Pres. Obama, Sec. State Clinton and Sen. (future Sec. State) Kerry, is called "Red Notice." Browder is not kind to himself in the book, which provides a pretty good view of the Russian brand of Oligarchy and its patron, Vladimir Putin. A lawyer buddy loaned me his copy of the book, and said it explains everything. That was during 2016. It explained why Putin did not want a Democrat elected. Putin was infuriated by the Magnitsky Act, which banned a bunch of his oligarchs and their money from America. What fueled Congress to pass Magnitsky was atrocities by Putin against Browder's Russian lawyer (Magnitsky) and other people who got in his and his oligarchs' way.

    I did not hear back from anyone who was reading my blog, that they had then read "Red Notice". I thought it should be required reading for all Americans. I still think that.

    I also think every American should be required to see Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 11/9", which crucifies Trump, Obama and Hillary and Bill Clinton," and nails them all as Republicans in actuality. I figured "11/9" didn't do well at the box office, because Moore nailed the Democrats' idols, too.
  3. I saw the new movie, "Captive State", last night. About aliens who took over Earth and were ruling over the humans and had humans working with them to control and use the rest of the humans. The action takes place in Chicago, one of the ETs headquarters. Other large cities in America and in other countries also are ET headquarters. I sometimes have quipped (not entirely quipping), that maybe humans will be saved by ETs. "Captive State" left me thinking, Be careful what you ask for. I sometimes have called Trump a Klingon. Some humans became the resistance in the movie. Other humans were hunting them down. The movie didn't get good reviews, but I figured there was a reason I saw it.
