The Trump “Org.” verdict is hardly what it seems, just ask Q…

I was struck by the number when I read the “BREAKING NEWS” chyron around 3:30 PM. Two Trump organizations were convicted on all 17 counts of tax fraud. Guilty! Surely, in a case dripping with drama, draped in such far-reaching political implications, the result should carry a deeper, metaphysical meaning beyond the banal. In the case of the Trump Org. and the cast of characters that comprise it, the ringing endorsement by a jury that deliberated less than a day of the prosecution’s case is pretty darn meta-whatever all by itself. I thought about poor Allan Weisselberg, the 75-year-old Trump lackey who decided to fall or be pushed onto his sword while remaining in the employ of the “Org.”. “How odd,” I thought, caught between wondering if Weisselberg’s employer was being charitable or just plain obstructive- whether the CEO of “the Org.” was cashing a check for his family and a presidential pardon sometime in the future.

Then it occurred to me to ignore the obvious and delve into the conspiratorial world — the über world of true believers. I should try to think like them, walk a bit in their steel-toed jackboots, collude “in tongues,” wearing a shiny-red tin foil hat that communes with — Q! “WWQD?- what would Q do?” I thought as I mentally crossed over to the darker side to plumb an alternative world where Trump is at once a victim and victorious. The world where facts matter only when they are faux.


The Q-tips would look for a greater significance in the verdict to rationalize their hero’s latest misfortune at the hands of modern Philistines. In their parlance, a unanimous guilty verdict is just simply the burden victim-martyrs must bear. Every movement has its dark times- every despot his prison stint. Even derFührer and il Duce simmered a time in jails, proof of the need for purification- some alone time with their thoughts. Q loves numbers, and numerology has a mysticism that defies logic, so I trolled the number of guilty counts conjured up by the prosecution and blessed by a jury of peers- 17. Certainly, it must have a significance beyond the number of times “the Org.” screwed up. Digging into biblical references, I found that The Book of Esther is the 17th book of the Old Testament, oh and did you realize that Noah rested on the mountain on the 17th day of the 7th month? I knew I was getting close to the deeper meaning hidden within the jury’s coded message- a message that belied what it seemed.

Then I stumbled upon the Book of Revelations and the curse of the Beast with seven heads and ten horns :

Jumping to the end of the New Testament, in Revelation 13:1, we can find a more metaphorical biblical meaning related to the end time system where the beast with ten horns and seven heads is mentioned.

The fact that it had seven heads and ten horns creates a total of 17.

This is the and the 10 + 7 signifies Christ’s perfect victory over him. It’s also said to represent world-ruling powers that do evil and how we can overcome them in worldly life.”

I was enraptured! I couldn’t resist the temptation to click on the phrase “binding of Satan”- a moment of giddy pleasure wrapped in trepidation. I put aside my fear of computer viruses and clicked. And now I understand the power belief has over its followers. When bullshit turns into double B.S. anything is possible, everything is true and not:

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.”


My mind exploded as I imagined Trump as both angel and Satan. It all began to make sense. This was like Donald Trump meets Hershel Walker crazy! If 17 means victory in code, then the jury verdict was in their faux reality a cipher for the opposite of what it seemed! In the Q-world, where up is down all things are both true and false, Trump is god-like and his conviction is a victory. Coming on December (12) six (6) and the amount associated with the verdict, $1.6 million, then what number is between 12 + 6 (18) and 1.6 (16)? You got it-17. Do numbers lie?

There is a promise of more court cases, each more serious and more damning than this one. This was just a preliminary, warm-up before a series of main events. While I do not pretend to be clairvoyant, reading the disgraced, twice impeached former president tarot cards suggests there won’t be presents under the Trump Christmas tree for Jack Smith, Alvin Bragg, or Letitia James, just coal for their stockings.

In his world, “guilty” means he isn’t and the cult can comfort itself in knowing that, what?!! “Q” is the 17th letter in the English alphabet!

As I eased back into reality I realized that here on earth 2.0 that knowledge and a buck fifty will likely buy you a cuppa coffee at the QMart — home of the Q Café. /s/
