Growing up I had always been a political outsider. I hated politics to the point where I just assumed that they were all corrupt and wanted absolutely nothing to do with it. Then in 2015-2016 something amazing happened; Trump had captured my heart and soul. The self proclaimed political outsider (who actually isn’t) came on the scene and through a series of memes from The_Donald I was hooked. Not going to lie, I enjoyed it all. “Build the wall!” “Lock her up!” “Magapedes!” had all been sayings I repeated and it was fun. It was way better than the liberals who were watching Bernie Sanders getting cheated out of the primary by Hillary Clinton. They were so mad that they were wasting perfectly good chicken tenders.
I have really been digging into General Flynn’s story over the last few weeks and it is one of the main reasons why I started my Finding the Genesis series. I keep trying to pump it out, but I keep finding more and more things and I don’t want to have to keep going back and editing. One thing that is criminally under-reported from right wing media outlets is the Peace Plan that was being pushed by General Flynn and his allies. In short, nuclear reactors would be built in developing countries with help from Russia and China. It would reshape the landscape of the Middle East while weakening Iran.
If you are familiar with Obama politics, the Iran deal was something worked on in Obama’s second term. The plan also had included deals with Rosatom, Russia’s State Nuclear Corporation. Interestingly enough, Rosatom’s owners were the ones that gave Hillary Clinton $145 Million after the Uranium One Deal. There was heavy involvement all around this Peace Plan and as James Woolsey and Bijan Kian had made investments into GreenZone which would be used in these plants. Flynn was also on the board of GreenZone.
So with a little background information on the Peace Plan, I wanted to highlight how we were lied to about one of the shadiest characters in Trump’s campaign: Paul Manafort. I loathe the guy for the sake of transparency to my readers. I also only care about what really happened so while some may rationalize the sequence of events that happened as needed so Hillary Clinton was not president. Our inner tribalism is being exposed by the propaganda machine in order to fracture and divide.
During the campaign season, Paul Manafort was hired onto the campaign. There were a few “Magapedes” who were concerned over the hiring. Senator Chuck Grassley even wrote a letter a year later asking why the FBI didn’t warn Trump about Manafort and his shady dealings like they did John McCain in 2008. Manafort’s camp had denied Grassley’s claim. I remember being on The_Donald and people were confused when Manafort was made campaign manager, based on his shady history and knowing that Manafort was an ‘insider’ because he had worked on establishment campaigns. It is where a 4D Chess meme came into play to court the dissenting opinions into playing along with having Manafort running the campaign. We know Manafort is a crook because he was indicted recently and in Former Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski had quoted Trump saying, “I have a crook running my campaign.” I had done a quick thread on the timeline with Manafort under the 4D Chess spell. It lays out how Lewandowski was outed which I highlight in more detail here.
In early 2016, Trump friend Tom Barrack had sent a letter to Trump recommending Manafort join the campaign. Manafort joined the campaign on March 29, 2016. On April 1, 2016, the 4D Chess meme is brought to life when Real Clear Politics brings up how Manafort is the delegate whipper. On May 19, 2016 Manafort is promoted to Campaign Chairman and Lewandowski is fired a month later on June 20, 2016. Under the meme magic, I had figured out Manafort was at least a crook and was able to deduce that Manafort’s hiring on March 29th had probably coincided with Lewandowksi being charged with battery on the same date. Lewandowski stated to AP that Paul Manafort has been in charge since April 7, 2016.
So why do I keep calling the delegate whipping meme magic? Let us look at Tom Barrack in a different light. He was a pusher of the Peace Plan that Flynn was working on and stood to make a lot of money out of it. One main roadblock in this plan which would hinder the success of the project were the sanctions that Obama had placed on Russia for the annexation of Crimea. Ukraine which was still recovering from the coup in 2014 was now back towards being aligned towards the west. In order for this plan to go through, Ukraine would have to be okay with Crimea sanctions being ripped up. Who is the best man to flip Ukraine back east? The man who was just sentenced for doing it in 2010, Paul Manafort.
Part of Manafort’s discovery helped put this puzzle together as it was later revealed that he would discuss another Peace Plan that was developed by Konstantin Kilimnik. Although it was previously denied, as the investigation into Manafort by Mueller’s Special Counsel continued, it was revealed that Manafort did discuss Peace Plans with Kilimnik and he also shared polling data. If Manafort was indeed brought in to whip the delegates, he was a great multi-tasker.
Once you start figuring out new links, previous holes in the narrative start to appear as well. One was if he was only there to whip the delegates, why did it take Ukranian election interference for him to be outed as Campaign Manager only to be replaced with Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway who both have extensive insider ties? If Manafort was only there to whip the delegates, he would have no business in Ukraine and he would have no business still being Campaign Manager after the Republican Convention.
The meme of 4D chess was perfect for easily deflecting any concern that Trump was anything other than an outsider candidate. Since the GOP was against Trump, a well planted story made Manafort look like a stroke of genius from Trump. Once again Trump tricks the dumb establishment on his climb to the presidency. Three years later and I am finally starting to see an entire new angle to everything that has transpired.
To answer the title: Is 4D Chess Real? Yes, but it is better than we think.
