I’m sensing another covert operation underway.
Actually, it’s probably been underway for quite some time now.
First, let me lay a little foundation for you.
Since the time he came down the infamous escalator, Donald J. Trump has never made a promise he didn’t keep. He’s never speculated on something that didn’t come true in the end. And no one’s called him out for lying. About ANYTHING.
How could that be?
No, really. How could that be?
ALL human beings promise things they don’t deliver on, speculate on matters that never come true, and say untrue things, whether deliberately or not.
What makes Trump omniscient?
Whether through Game Theory or some kind of advanced technology, Trump is ALWAYS many steps ahead of his adversaries.
Project Looking Glass? Particle acceleration? Time travel? So many theories are out there. I’ll leave bigger brains than mine to hash all that out.
But the reason I bring up Trump’s omniscience is that it is the foundation of what I’ll call “Operation Wake Up America 1.0.”
My initial impression of Donald Trump was probably like yours. Through intermittent glimpses of Trump early on, I believed he was a successful, somewhat arrogant real estate developer in New York.
Big swagger. A rich playboy, even when he was married.
I, like many other people, enjoyed reading The Art of the Deal.
Then I got to know him through his television show, “The Apprentice.” It was a ratings juggernaut and created a platform for America—and the world—to get to know Trump both professionally and personally.
Looking back, wasn’t that an interesting strategy?
Professionally, Trump demanded excellence. He sought input from his trusted advisors, but in the end, he was The Boss and made his own decisions. He didn’t blink when he decided to ‘fire’ celebrity contestants from the show.
We also got to know Trump’s children. We saw how he treated them and how they genuinely respected him. You can tell a lot about a person by their fruits. As we all watched Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric during their years on the show, their commonsense approach to business, their intellects and their overall likeability, and it made us view Trump as a great dad.
Inherent in our understanding of Trump prior to his presidency was the fact that he knew how to play the game. The real estate business, especially in New York, isn’t an easy one. He understood unions, manufacturing, governmental bureaucracy and whose whistle to wet to get the job done.
Don’t forget that he was also in the gambling business. BIGLY.
We know Trump was a registered Democrat for much of his life, and we’ve all heard that he made significant ‘donations’ to politicians on both sides of the aisle. He was a ‘friend’ to all. Smart. He knew how to play the game.
Trump’s character, reputation and persona have been carefully crafted over the years.
We’ll probably never know how long ago it was decided that Donald J. Trump would be asked to accept the role of a lifetime. We’ll probably never know who asked him. But I think we can agree that he was chosen for the role he’s now playing.
Why did Trump say he ran? Well, it wasn’t for the money. As he often says, “I had a very nice life.” It was for love of country. It was for love of We the People. He saw the direction the country was going in, and he wanted to change it.
“For such a time as this” comes to mind.
Fast forward to what Politico called, “The Escalator Ride That Changed America.” It was June 16, 2015. From the moment he announced his run for the presidency, Trump’s words, promises, speculations and predictions have built the rock-solid confidence his growing group of loyalists have in him.
What can you say about the Trump we know today?
A master communicator. A commanding presence. A skilled negotiator. A genius in many things.
But at his core, Donald J. Trump is a showman.
Let’s review highlights from the Playbook that started around the time of the 2020 election.
The 2020 Operation Wake Up America 1.0 National Playbook:
Execute devolution plan to ensure continuity of government after the loss of the rigged election.
Dismantle the Deep State, piece by piece, through lawfare, clandestine operations, election flips, etc.
Wake up as many Americans as possible through messaging that targets normies.
Manipulate/capture the MSM to control the narrative. The narrative is to target normies, not the Awakened.
What happened after the 2020 election was stolen?
Trump’s Shadow Presidency began.
The impotent and corrupt Biden regime is installed with …
No true access to the Pentagon.
No true access to Air Force One.
No nuclear football.
The Trump post-White House checklist:
Use carefully crafted messaging to awaken normies and grow the movement.
Craft comments, skillfully placed, highlighting the failures of the Biden ‘administration.’
Hold consistent and powerful rallies—increasing more and more grassroots support—normalizing support of America First sentiment and disdain for the Democrat agenda.
Allow the installed regime to create chaos (inflation, gas prices, pandemic issues, Ukraine, China, etc.) while growing support for the America First movement.
Consistently discuss and highlight immigration failures and the need for a border wall: “If you don’t have a border, you don’t have a country.”
Now, let’s move on to Operation Wake Up America 2.0, or Phase 2:
I’ll never forget the first time I saw Trump with Kari Lake in public. It was at the Turning Point USA “Rally to Protect Our Elections” in Phoenix, AZ, in July 2021. As he does at all his rallies, POTUS generously recognized both local and national politicians in attendance. Early in the rally, he did a role call of everyone who was involved heavily in the Arizona audit of the 2020 election. The audit had just started, and featured rising stars like State Senator Wendy Rogers and AZ GOP Chair Kelli Ward.
Then much later in the rally, POTUS started to recognize Arizona’s congressional delegation. Then—only then—did he introduce Kari Lake. He left her for last.
When I was watching that event live, I remember thinking, “He’s acting like he didn’t even know who she was. He actually acted surprised at the response Kari got from the audience, saying, ‘Wow! This could be a big night for you!’”
And I knew Kari knew President Trump from interviews she’d done with him over the years in her role as a Phoenix news anchor.
He was acting.
Because, to Donald Trump, all the world’s a stage.
Kari Lake’s character, reputation and persona have been carefully crafted over the years. As a top-rated anchor at Phoenix’s Fox affiliate for 27 years, Arizonans got to know her well. Kari honed her skills. She knew what sold. And, to her credit, she knew what she believed.
She had conviction.
We’ll probably never know how long ago it was decided that Kari Lake would be asked to accept the role of a lifetime. We’ll probably never know who asked her. But take a leap with me, because I believe that, like Trump, she was chosen for the role she’s now playing to perfection.
Like Trump, Kari has significant television experience. She’s a skillful communicator. A confident leader with genuine likeability and poise under pressure. (Even that last one is iffy for our POTUS on any given day, right?)
She’s also a 27-year veteran of the ‘enemy of the people’ that is the Mainstream Media.
Why did Kari say she ran? Well, it wasn’t for the money.
From Kari’s gubernatorial announcement on June 2, 2021:
“I am running for Governor of Arizona because I care too deeply about this state and the wonderful people who live here to sit on the sidelines and watch us adopt the same policies that left California in shambles. The Democrats around the country and in Arizona have gone CRAZY, and if they win the Governor’s seat, they will turn us into California or worse. I want to see my kids remain here in Arizona … and I want my grandkids to be Arizonans. We must ensure the opportunities that brought so many of us here in the first place don’t dry up.
“The Founding Fathers of this country understood that in times of crisis, when our country was crying out for new leadership, that leadership wouldn’t come from the elite and career politicians.
“They understood there would be moments like the one we are in right now, where patriots would rise up from the people to lead us forward.
We are at that moment.”
Kari ran for love of country. For love of We the People. She saw the direction the country was going in, and she wanted to change it.
What can you say about the Kari we know today?
She is a master communicator with a commanding presence and a take-no-prisoners approach to rhetoric.
Because Kari Lake is, at her core, a show-woman.
Friends, we already know the Playbook that’s about to unfold in Arizona because it’s going to mimic the Playbook that POTUS has used over the last two years.
Kari will go through the motions of fighting the rigged election, but because of a judiciary that’s as corrupt as our leftist state government, Katie Hobbs will be ‘crowned’ Governor of Arizona. It sounds like she will be a complete nightmare. She’s a Communist, but we know that she’s just a puppet. She will attempt to drive Arizona into the ground, and it’s gonna get rocky over here.
After Hobbs’ coronation, it will be time to execute The 2022 Operation Wake Up America 2.0 Arizona Playbook:
Kari isn’t an incumbent like President Trump was when he ‘lost’ his election, but through the force of her personality and opinions, coupled with her matchless communication skills, Kari will swagger her way across Arizona with her six-guns on board to continue her march for a better Arizona and America.
After losing the rigged election, Kari will use the growing number of America First politicians in Arizona to ensure her own Continuity of Government plans. This may often require disrupting the Hobbs administration’s plans. And if Attorney General Candidate Abe Hamadeh wins his runoff election—I predict he will—we will have a highly-placed and powerful operative deep inside the machine, and THAT’S gonna be FUN to watch!
Dismantle the Deep State through lawfare, clandestine operations, election flips, etc.
Wake up as many Arizonans as possible during the Hobbs administration. Other states will undoubtedly continue to watch Arizona closely. And there’s no doubt that Kari Lake’s voice will continue to be loud and respected. Many Arizonans have trusted Kari Lake over her 27-year career in local television, and it certainly appears that number is growing stronger by the day, even post-election. And nationally.
Manipulate/capture the MSM to control the narrative for normies. Kari Lake has already warned both local and national media that she intends to school them into becoming journalists again. We all know she will NEVER back down from calling out the MSM. Kari will use her high-profile post-candidacy platform to shame and humiliate the mainstream media that covers her into doing some deep introspection into both their chosen career path and their character. This is a different type of ‘speaking truth to power’ than we’ve seen in the past. Kari was chosen for a reason. Her relentlessness will undoubtedly cause one reporter—then two, then three, and so on—to actually start investigating what’s going on. I believe she will be the main catalyst to wake normies up to the mainstream media’s complicity in corruption across our country. And perhaps she will even convince some reporters to turn on their handlers.
Keep the invasion on Arizona’s border very visible in local and national media. Continue to shout for help to close the border through lawfare and legislation. Focus on drug and sex trafficking stories. Unashamedly reveal the horrors. Kari is a Mama Bear; her voice about these issues will pierce directly into other mothers’ hearts across the country.
What will happen to Kari after the 2022 election is stolen?
Shadow governorship begins. When I realized the election was stolen, my first thought was that Kari was probably meeting with her transition staff anyway. And not just her staff. My guess is that Kari will be running a shadow administration that includes Hamadeh, Finchem, Blake, and all the other America First candidates that either won or lost in the midterms. Kari will lead the way, whether she has the Governor’s seat or not.
The impotent and corrupt Hobbs regime will be installed.
There will be no respect from Arizonans for the Hobbs administration. In fact, the latest Rasmussen poll indicates that 71% of likely U.S. voters believe it’s Likely—including 40% who say it’s Very Likely—that problems with the election in Maricopa County affected the outcome of the Senate election in Arizona. That’s a nationwide survey; I wonder what the percentage of Arizonans would be.
Kari post-election ‘loss’ checklist:
Use carefully-crafted messaging to ‘turn’ normies and grow movement/support.
Craft selective, skillfully-placed comments highlighting the failures of the Hobbs ‘administration.’
Hold consistent and powerful rallies—increasing more and more grassroots support—normalizing the America First agenda while breeding contempt and disdain for the Democrat agenda.
Drive higher and higher loyalty to America First, as the installed regime creates chaos (inflation, gas prices, pandemic issues, immigration, drug/sex trafficking, fentanyl poisoning, etc.)
Consistently discuss and highlight Arizona immigration failures and the need for a border wall: “If you don’t have a border, you don’t have a country.”
American history is being written right now, friends. Names like Trump and Lake will be written into our country’s history for all time, and that history is being written right now, if you pay attention.
So, let the Arizona games begin!

I'm old enough to have watched Donald Trump for 45 yrs, have watched every interview I could in those years. Why? Because he always had important things to say and had his finger on the pulse of America.
1) Trump has been a Republican at least since 1988 or 1989, 33 or 34 yrs. I heard him say that in an interview in 1988 or 1989.
2) In 1978 he was interviewed by Rona Barrett. In that interview he talked about his concern for America, that he saw America sliding downhill and was extremely concerned about it. He was asked if he thought he would run for president. He said "I really don't want to but I may have to if no one else comes forward." He didn't just wake up one morning and decide to run for president, he has known for 45 yrs that he might have to run. It is obvious he has prepared for the presidency almost all of his adult life. btw, that interview was still up on You Tube last time I checked a few months ago. It is worth watching.
3) There is FAR more going on behind the scenes that one might think and there are many clues if you watch closely. I've researched deep state for 26 yrs ever since I got my first computer. Everyday for several hours I research and I keep learning all kinds of things every day. I've also researched Donald Trump for that amount of time. I believe he is the real deal and is on the right side and he's probably the only person who could be this effective at restoring America. He isn't just some rich playboy, he takes his marriage seriously. If you think otherwise, you are merely speculating but people close to him report that he is very concerned that Melania knows he is faithful to him. There is ALOT of lies about him on the internet and in the deep state mainstream media - they are WRONG and are trying to make him look as bad as possible. If you want to know what's going on behind the scenes, here is a good source to read:
Yes, Trump is a showman but he's also far more than that, he is showing the public the truth and he is sincere in wanting to Make America Great Again. He also has the talent and ability to do so. btw, if you read thedocuments.info you will see that Trump is still president, he was sworn in by military on Jan. 20, 2021 and he invoked the Insurrection Act of 1807 to put military in charge of the country. He has not abandoned ship and he is commander-in-chief of the military.
Kari Lake is EXCELLENCE In High Heels. A Strong Mamma Bear Disposition and a True Patriot. She has what Sarah Palin didn't Have; The Media Savy and knowledge of their Master's plan. I Hope and Pray for her Ultimate Rise into the Governor's Office as well as all of the America First Candidates today, and in the near fuiture. She has my support from North Central AZ.
