How should a person feel on the day he wakes up in a Dan Brown novel? Especially to realize he is not the hero, but rather just one of the many expendable pieces of background collateral damage to make the finale more exciting? And you don’t know if he’s planning on writing a sequel or not? Or even what page of the story you are on?
That is where I find myself. Many others are thinking the same, I’m sure, even if they are not thinking in the same terms.
The whole WikiLeaks / Podesta / Clinton email rabbit-hole is just unreal. It’s like an over-the-top thriller where you shake your head and say “Nah, nobody is that sick and flaunts it so much; I mean pedophilia, child sex trafficking, cannibalism, occult ceremonies, secret code words, an unsecured server in a presidential campaign, and an unsecured backup of nearly everything on a guy named Anthony Weiner’s laptop? The media cannot be that blind, bought, or stupid as to play along with it and remain silent… can it? That many high level government officials can’t be that corrupt, and have that much leverage on their underlings… I hope? And are you telling me than not a single one of the hundreds of agents and officers involved in all this have the spine to take the damning evidence public? And did a fly really land on both Hillary and Obama on live TV?” You really resist belief, because if you believe what the emails are pointing to is true, a whole bunch of very uncomfortable things follow… if not logically, they are at least much more likely than is enjoyable to contemplate. And if they are not true, then the realization you are delusional and part of a mass hallucination is not a comforting thought, either.
Very short summary for those with a job and regular life who haven’t been following: WikiLeaks has released a massive number of emails obtained from the account of John Podesta (Hillary Clinton’s right-hand man, who used the password “p@ssword” on his highly sensitive account) that appear to indicate involvement in ordinary pay-to-play government corruption with large dollar values, selling influence, media collusion and campaign coordination in all sorts of ways, charity fraud, conflicts of interest, etc. But there also appear to be a much darker side, including bizarre things like Podesta’s favorite piece of art being a huge sculpture “inspired” by one of Jeffry Dhamer’s decapitated murder/cannibal victims (https://i.redd.it/i05mcsh5vpvx.png ), and all the other things listed above. It is not simply implied that there is just a little bit of “he likes children”, but more a “he’s a major player in a huge and ongoing international child sex slave trafficking trade.” And the whole “spirit cooking” is something I’d expect from a 3rd century pagan or ancient Egyptian occultist, not in modern America.
At least, that what’s being reported/speculated based on the emails. The folks at 4chan are connecting dots at an incredible pace. The weird pizza parlor that’s not far from a dentist. The strange word-salad emails that only make sense if you use urban-dictionary slang for things. Etc., etc., etc. Just… bizarre. Then there is the whole on/off/on/back off FBI director Comey announcements. Then you have the drip-drip-drip release of the wikileaks emails, and Project Veritas’s under-cover videos of high-ranking democrat operatives, one even married to a US representative, bragging about how they incite violence at Trump rallies, fix elections, commit vote fraud, and more.
Try to explain any of this, let alone all of it, to an average low-info voter or a normal person and you get the “you lost your tinfoil hat” look as they slowly back away.
Is it real, and there is a massive cover-up and corruption that really needs at least $40 million in special effects and a major chase scene to justify all the build-up? Or is there just some ordinary corruption and misunderstanding, or a dream (hi, Toto!), and life will go on as before if Hillary gains the WH?

This is certainly not an exhaustive list of sources – things keep cropping up on 4chan and elsewhere – so add any new good summaries or info in comments below.
Oh, and if it’s a movie, I expect at least normal union rates, preferably in small unmarked bills. If it’s real… I may wind up going back to Church for real sometime soon.
