“But I could not rest, Watson, I could not sit quiet in my chair, if I thought that such a man as Professor Moriarty were walking the streets of London unchallenged.”
Sherlock Holmes, from “The Adventure of the Final Problem”, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1893
It’s funny – people are waking up to the fact that there’s “fake news”, and I think the fair-seeming, two-faced, sociopathic folks who are for this moment still in charge of things on this globe are in a terrible fright about it, because it’s not a long march from that realization to a more scholarly review of propaganda and neurolinguistic programming, as is being undertaken here.
I was an English major in college, and those studies included poetry. I worked at a newspaper for a time. So I “see” these things. If you haven’t “seen” them, previously, it might be simply that no one ever told you, at least not in this way.
Misdirection is the key to any “Confidence game”, in which the ill-intended use false guise and ruses to gain the “confidence” of a victim that they call a “rube”, or a “mark”; someone they want to “fleece”, which means “to take advantage of.” They want to “fleece the rube.”
To continue the metaphor, and the parlance, I’m breaking this all down to help you “get wise to the Con.”
Actually, the core of this is me making a personal statement of my own Personal Truth – using the “power of utterance” to put this thought form into reality with firmness and conviction…making the opposition react to me.
Crashing the boards. Taking control of the game.
This is our time to take control of the game.
Keep playing aggressively.

May 23, 2017 – Great Lakes Water Temperatures Have Flatlined
Water temperatures on the surface of the Great Lakes haven’t warmed as fast as usual in recent weeks, due to cooler than normal temperatures. The much warmer than normal water temperatures this winter and spring have now been held back to near normal temperatures. Several Great Lakes have even dipped to below normal surface water temperatures.
(Dropping water temperatures are said to have “flatlined“; “Cooling” is written as “haven’t warmed as fast as usual“; “Colder than normal” is written as “cooler than normal.” “Colder than normal” is written as “warmer water temperatures have been held back“; “Below normal” is written as “near normal”; “The Great Lakes” has been written as “several Great Lakes“; “Below normal water temperatures” has been written as “below normal surface water temperatures.” Each example is a hedge. A stunning storm of doublespeak…read: “colder than normal”. – ed)
June 3, 2017 – With record rainfall, Lake Ontario smothers islands offshore from Toronto
The cause of the wet weather? Unusually warm temperatures in the Great Lakes, which is driving more water vapor into the atmosphere, University of Saskatchewan geography professor John Pomeroy told The National Post.
Also, the jet stream over eastern North America has been stalled for a few months, causing longer periods of rainfall than normal.

“It seems like they’re cooling. The cooling usually starts in September,” he told the Traverse City Record-Eagle. “But, in just seeing the forecast for northern Michigan in the last week or so, night temperatures and frost risks will affect the water temperatures.”
Lake Michigan seems to have been the least impacted, being only about 1 degree lower than last year, from 72 degrees to only about 71. Lake Superior was about 66 degrees last year in late August and about 63 degrees this year.
(The larger drop (which is three degrees lower) is presented as numbers, so is not as impactful to the reader. The smaller drop is spelled out, “one degree lower” – it’s also positioned first, for the same reason, increased impact on the reader. – ed)
