A “Confidence Game” is “a swindle in which the victim is persuaded to trust the swindler in some way.” They first gain the trust, the confidence of the victim (whom they call “the rube”) by putting on fair guise.

I have put aside the investigation as to how anyone got to the concept that orange makeup, finger extensions and bizarre fake hair would in actuality translate to anyone on the planet as “fair guise”, and rather have focused below on how the general public is “getting wise” to the Con – understanding that neither Trump, nor Hillary, nor Putin, nor anyone else reading a teleprompter is in any way trustworthy.

The grinning, nattily-dressed, teleprompter-reading and sometimes-even-orange folks in charge are not your friends, and are lying to you about basically everything.

Their con has been worked the same way in every nation on Earth for the entirety of human history. It might seem counterintuitive, but that’s actually very good news, because once people wake up to it at a basic level, it’s not going to work anymore, but will rather simply disappear, like frost on a Spring morning.

When I was young, con artists would flip a cardboard box upside down and work a card game swindle called “three card monte.” You simply don’t see them anymore, they’re gone from the Matrix.

It’s going to be that way with the “no new taxes!”; “I’m going to shut down Gitmo!”; “I’m going to make America Great again!” game that has put one “One Percenter” shill after another into a position of power for a very long time. And, actually, the stage actors who play the roles of “Politicians” are very low-ranking. The people with the actual power are folks whose names most of us simply don’t know.

So please read the great news, below, and consider doing what you can to push them even more rapidly out of power, into the low-wage jobs, lunatic asylums and prisons that await them.
