Thursday night, Trump posed for a formal photo with his top military commanders and their spouses in the State Dining Room at the White House. Trump pointed to the leaders gathered around him and asked the small group of reporters standing before him: "You guys know what this represents?" Enticed one reported asked him what he meant. "It's the Calm Before the Storm", Trump replied.
Sadly Trump once again spoke before he thought telling reporters they'll find out. Did Trump even know what he meant? Trump refused to elaborate or even discuss it any further nor did his advisers if they even knew... or maybe that thought they knew ... but weren't sure as Trump's erratic behavior changes from moment to moment. Much of Trump's staff cover for him without knowing what he is talking about ... leaving the world to speculate.
Does "the calm before the storm" refer to North Korea, Iran, Isis, Rex Tillerson who disparaged Trump by calling him a f*****g moron (well put T Rex), other potential avenues, or all of the above? The dispute between Trump and Tillerson won't end well. At least Tillerson admits to be new to the political scene. You may recall when Tillerson was sworn in, he mentioned that he took the job because his wife wanted him to. A Secretary of State represents American diplomacy and dealing with Trump to that end may have become impossible for Tillerson. No one seems to able to handle Trump's behavior as many resigned or are fired.
Few think John Kelly will last. I often wonder if Jarod and Ivanka regret coming to Washington. Trump could easily take down his family along with the country.
World leaders, and even us common folk, regard Trump's current behavior as making a mockery of this great nation seemingly as if trying to destroy it ... all the while saying he wants to make America great again. I know ... it's all part of end times.
Lately, I have been laughing at Trump's remarks especially when he was in Puerto Rico. True, the late night talk show hosts are having a ball with this, but at the end of the day Trump is the "calm before the storm" based on arrogance, inexperience, ego, and that's before we get to his emotional baggage. Good luck to all.
Hurricane season ... it's not over till it's over!

Storms and the economy
Storms take away jobs but also create them. Here is an example. People who work in construction and related are very busy rebuilding after the hurricanes. A friend in Florida said that the people arriving from Puerto Rico need jobs so his roofing business is very busy. Every event has its positives and negatives. We await Trump's positives as does the rest of the world.

"A Storm is Coming"
I always remember Leonard Nimoy's words in an episode called Momentum Deferred on the TV series Fringe when he tells Anna Torv (Olivia): "A storm is coming, perhaps the last and worst storm of all. And when it is over, I fear that there will be little left of our world." Read more to review ... scroll down
As with Trump, we, the audience, are left to wonder about a storm. Fringe was about parallel realities which is where we would like to send Trump. Some believe we are shifting realities without realizing it, but that has always been the case including other inserts that change outcomes in this level of reality (consciousness). Do we ever really know how the hologram is playing out its algorithm? No. We are here to play the game and follow the clues. In the end, it all Fades to Black in the Alchemy of Time.
