    Asserting missiles don't change direction is nuts. That's why they have guidance systems.

    Such a glaring error by Nyquist could be intentional. That could very well be a perfect example of misinformation.

    IE: he posted something so stupid, we (should) realize he's under duress, intentionally lying, etc.

    As I read once: Disinformation and misinformation are, in fact, information.

    These days, anything is possible.

    In 1971, I received a vision of the night in which I was shown a row of houses. It was not until 23 years later that the Spirit gave me a dream which held the key to the meaning of these houses. They represent presidential administrations, starting with Truman in 1953, and extending into the future for two more presidents (beyond Clinton).



    Linear Recounting of the Vision of the Night:


    "We were fleeing the persecution and calamity of the day. A brother was fleeing with me. He fell and I paused to help him up. We prayed "Lord Have Mercy". My friend vanished, and I looked around to see that I was at the top of a hill overlooking 12 houses. As I looked to the west, I noticed dark and ominous clouds gathering over one house (#10) and proceeding through to the last house (#12). I looked into the sky over #12, and saw an arc of what appeared to be 6 stars in the sky. One of the stars fell to the earth like a fig that was shaken off a limb. A voice came to me and said "look to the east!". I began to turn to the east, fully expecting to see the Lord coming in the clouds. The dark clouds opened up in two places and I saw the sun darkened and the moon turned to blood. As I looked to the east, instead of seeing the Lord in the sky, I saw an army. This army was made up of ancient armaments such as battering rams, catapults and siege ramps. I ran down and joined the army at house #5. Instantly I was transported into the future, and found myself before what I can only call a "temple fortress". The city was gray, in ruins, and desolate. A man had just emerged from the huge double doors of the temple fortress. He was dressed in a suit. A voice said to me "he says he is god, but he is of devil". The the vision ended.

    Significant events indicated in the vision:

    >>SNIP<<

    Across from the path after house #12 was a new row of houses stretching off into the distance. These I believe are the rulers of the land that Jesus will set up during the millennium.
    It's pretty clear what the vision meant. Someone who builds buildings will be after House Obama and he will revitalize the economy.

    Obama May Jump Into Fray as Democrats Counter Trump

    By MICHAEL D. SHEAR and THOMAS KAPLAN
    NOV. 19, 2016
    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/20/us...rump.html?_r=0



    WASHINGTON — President Obama is rethinking his plans to withdraw from
    the political arena after he leaves office next year, hinting to friends and
    supporters that he wants to add his voice to the shellshocked Democratic
    activists and elected officials who are now angrily vowing to oppose
    Donald J. Trump’s presidency.

    White House aides say they expect the president to try to refrain from
    criticism during the transition because of his belief in the importance of
    a courteous and dignified transfer of power. But while the president holds
    out hope that he might influence Mr. Trump, he has made it clear that once
    out of office he will not remain silent if Mr. Trump goes too far in undoing
    his legacy.

    “I’m going to be constrained in what I do with all of you until I am again
    a private citizen,” Mr. Obama, who will be living a few miles from the White
    House next year, told a meeting this past week of Organizing for Action,
    the group that maintains his political movement. “But that’s not so far off.”


    Dozens of liberal advocacy groups, which have received a flood of
    donations and new members in the chaotic days since Mr. Trump’s defeat
    of Hillary Clinton, are gearing up for years of clashes with Mr. Trump.
    After eight years of advocacy on behalf of the Obama agenda, they are
    racing to recast themselves as bulwarks against Mr. Trump’s expected
    assault
    on an array of Democratic policies.


    The mobilization against Mr. Trump began even before his victory was official.
    At just after midnight on Election Day, panicked immigration rights activists
    gathered for a conference call to strategize. A few days later, more than
    80 representatives of 57 progressive groups convened in the offices
    of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights in Washington.


    The mood was intense, angry and unforgiving, according to people
    who attended the confidential organizing session, which included
    representatives from labor, environmental groups, immigration activists,
    gay rights and civil rights organizations.


    Jim Messina, who managed Mr. Obama’s re-election
    campaign
    , offered brief remarks at the meeting,
    cautioning against any attempts to compromise
    and work with Mr. Trump. “Push back at every level,”
    Mr. Messina urged.

    No one in the room objected, one attendee said.


    Nan Aron, the president of the Alliance for Justice, started calling law firms
    in Washington the day after the election, beginning the process of
    opposition research on Mr. Trump’s likely Supreme Court nominees.
    Dozens of lawyers eagerly signed up for what is sure to be a heated
    battle over the direction of the court for a generation.

    “They want to get involved,” she said. “They are worried about the new
    administration.”

    Neera Tanden, an adviser to Mrs. Clinton and the president of the Center
    for American Progress, a liberal think tank, said her organization had
    begun hosting daily meetings and conference calls as it plots the best
    way to resist Mr. Trump.

    She called Mr. Trump’s first appointments extreme and said they had
    helped to “stiffen the spines” of Democrats. And she said the election
    had sparked a grass-roots awakening, with largely peaceful protests
    across the country.

    Two planned rallies in Washington — one for immigration and civil rights
    on Jan. 14, and another focused on women the day after the inauguration
    — were devised mostly by social media campaigns. Activists in Washington
    expect hundreds of thousands of people to gather for the second rally.

    But Ms. Tanden warned of dangers posed by the Trump administration,
    and warned against treating them “in normal Washington political terms.”

    “I think the issue is, we do have the makings of an administration that
    could do more damage to democratic norms than any presidency in my
    lifetime,” she said.

    Some Democrats say they are eager for Mrs. Clinton to re-emerge
    after a period of recovery interrupted so far only by a speech to
    the Children’s Defense Fund on Wednesday.

    It is unclear when, or if, she might return to politics, though many
    Democrats said they would welcome it. “She’s one tough lady,
    and public service is in her blood,” said Representative Adam Schiff
    of California. “Don’t expect her to go quietly into that good night.”

    But the immediate task of confronting Mr. Trump will fall to Senator
    Chuck Schumer of New York, the new Democratic leader.

    Mr. Schumer has already alarmed some progressives in Washington with
    his talk of trying to cut deals with the new president on issues where their
    interests align. But he said on Friday that Democrats in the Senate would
    not hesitate to confront Mr. Trump.

    “When he takes a divisive, nasty turn, when he just sides with special
    interests and gets co-opted by the Republican right, we will oppose him
    tooth and nail
    ,” Mr. Schumer said in an interview.

    That is not nearly enough for some liberal activists,
    who view Mr. Trump not as a traditional policy adversary
    to be challenged but a fundamental threat to democracy
    who must be confronted and destroyed.


    “This is a crisis of unparalleled dimension,” said Wade Henderson,
    the president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights,
    a coalition of liberal groups in Washington.

    A disagreement over strategy threatens to sow division among Democrats,
    some of whom advocate finding ways to work with Mr. Trump.
    That approach could help senators who face re-election in 2018, especially
    in states where Mr. Trump trounced Mrs. Clinton.

    Senator Joe Manchin III of West Virginia announced on Friday that
    he would support Mr. Trump’s nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions
    to be attorney general. Others, like Senator Richard Blumenthal
    of Connecticut, say Democrats should work with Mr. Trump in areas
    where they have similar goals (though Mr. Blumenthal also warned
    against ceding ground on issues like civil rights).

    By contrast, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, whose fierce
    criticisms of Mr. Trump on the campaign trail often verged on the apocalyptic,
    rejects compromise with Mr. Trump. She says he is mounting an effort
    “to turn this country into something very different than it is.”

    “On basic issues of humanity, we don’t give an inch,” she insisted in
    an interview on Friday. “Be very, very clear about what we won’t
    compromise on and very clear about what we’re fighting for.
    If we have clarity, the American people are with us.”

    Senator Christopher Murphy of Connecticut reflected the uncertainty
    among Democrats, who are still trying to assess the implications of
    a Trump administration and how to respond.

    “We don’t know yet if it is a threat to democratic norms,” he said,
    “or to policy.”

    For Mr. Obama, a return to the partisan fray was never the intention.
    His library and foundation will serve as a platform for him to travel around
    the world, confront systemic issues of race relations, and push for
    technological change aimed at improving society.

    But that vision assumed that his presidential legacy would be protected
    and nurtured by Mrs. Clinton in the Oval Office.

    In his remarks to activists, Mr. Obama urged them to stop moping and to
    ratchet up their opposition to Mr. Trump by Thanksgiving. He promised to
    join their cause soon after, telling them: “You’re going to see me early next
    year, and we’re going to be in a position where we can start cooking up all
    kinds of great stuff to do.”


    He has echoed that message in private conversations, making it clear that
    he may not completely pattern himself after George W. Bush, who almost
    never criticized his successor.

    One friend of Mr. Obama’s, who requested anonymity to discuss private
    discussions with the president, said the election results seemed to have
    made him more willing to remain part of the political debate.

    “Everyone he talks to walks away with this impression,” the friend said.

    In an interview with The New Yorker this week, Mr. Obama said that if
    Mrs. Clinton had won the election, he might have just turned over the keys
    and walked away on Inauguration Day.

    With Mr. Trump’s victory, he said he felt “some responsibility to at least
    offer my counsel” to the Democratic Party’s political warriors he leaves
    behind in Washington.

    Exactly how — and when — Mr. Obama would once again engage
    in direct and public opposition to Mr. Trump’s agenda is unclear.


    “I don’t know what President Obama will do,” Ms. Tanden said.
    “But I know that he loves the foundations of democracy.
    If he thinks that’s threatened, I imagine he might speak out.”
    A version of this article appears in print on November 20, 2016, on page A24 of the New York
    edition with the headline: Obama May Jump Into the Fray as Democrats Fight to Protect
    His Legacy.
