Everyone should read this. It is terrifying.
The news continues to develop almost faster than I can type analyses. But I've tried to round up the most critical updates from the past few hours, together with a discussion of what they mean.

The short version is this: we're seeing the formation of an "inner circle" of government, including Trump, Bannon, Miller, Kushner, Priebus, and possibly Flynn and Conway, who have been taking deliberate steps to hobble the ability of all other parts of government – the rest of the Executive branch, Congress, and most especially the courts – from controlling them. Somewhat unexpectedly, they went straight for an attempt to grab extraordinary physical powers over people (yesterday's Muslim ban), rather than trying to boil the frog slowly; in the context of other moves taken over the past week, this starts to look like a coherent strategy.

Power, including the power to execute every one of the things that Trump promised to do during the campaign, is the primary goal; money, in large, untraceable quantities, appears to be the secondary.

Please help thy, or rather my, neighbor, Elza, by listening to her winning song. Then comment, like, share -- and the biggest enchilada of all – Click "follow" on Elza’s artist page.

This is a grassroots effort to get Elza noticed by ‘music biz bigwigs.’ – Say that fast 5 times!

They will come knocking next Friday. The more follows, likes, etc., will help Elza get the nod from the MBBs. Thanks and enjoy your day!

All together now – Music biz bigwigs. Music biz bigwigs. Music biz bigwigs. Music biz bigwigs. Music biz bigwigs.
