There’s a storm of things going on, as usual these days. There’s indictments and mass shootings and the corrupt bombshells and capitalism’s worsening rot revealed in the Paradise Papers . There’s Trump’s Asian tour, complete with a very foul smelling Putin meeting in Vietnam.
Even in all this madness, with so many unanswered questions, the one big mystery that I would really like to know the answer to is: What the hell is going on with Robert Mercer? Without Mercer there is no Brexit, there is no Breitbart, no Bannon, and no Trump. Now he seems to be pulling out of everything, and fast. What’s up with that? Is he spooked by something? Is this a head fake? What the hell’s going on here?
