MATTIS QUITS HIS SECDEF JOB AS TRUMP QUITS SYRIA.
Problems became obvious with Korea policy. This page updated on 12/23/2018.
On December 20, 2018 Secretary of State James Mattis resigned over differences with President Trump. This was right after the President announced his intention to withdraw all 2,000 American troops from Syria. In ancient times Syria was part of Assyria. The resignation was also after the two sparred in public about canceling war games in South Korea as a reward for North Korea's cooperation with cancelling its missile and nuclear tests. On Figure 1 the axis term is JAMES MATTIS. At the same absolute skip are ASSYRIA and KOREA. At skip +1 is QUITTER. This could refer to the President quitting Syria (after defeating ISIS, we hope) or Mattis quitting his job. The best spelling of TRUMP is at skip -2. B. OBAMA is at skip -1 two rows above PRESIDENT in the open text. NETANYAHU is at skip +1. He touches ISRAEL and FROM THE MILITARY. Netanyahu and Israel now have to deal with Iranian forces in Syria by itself, but they are fully capable of doing so. Figure 1 was found against odds of over 1.3 trillion to 1.
STATISTICAL AND POLITICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MATRIX. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is assigned to the axis term, here the 3rd lowest ELS for JAMES MATTIS in wrapped Torah. The most significant a priori term was B. OBAMA at skip -1. He was sought because (1) President Trump said that the general was "sort of a Democrat," and (2) leftist pundits are comparing President Trump's announced intention to withdraw from Syria with Obama's withdrawal from Iraq. Before factoring ELS rank 3 of the axis term, B. OBAMA was found at a special case skip (+/- 1 or the absolute skip of the axis term) against odds of about 355 to 1.
The next most significant term is QUITTER. It was found at skip +1 against odds of about 178 to 1. When Mattis let us know that he was quitting his job as as Secretary of Defense it served to undermine our President, and by extension our nation.
TRUMP is at skip -2. That's the minimum skip for this best spelling of the President's name. It's not what I call a special case skip but his name was found against odds of over 118 to 1. PRESIDENT is in the open text against odds of about 5.7 to 1.
While I looked for Syria before Korea, the KOREA find at a special case skip against odds of about 89 to 1 was more spectacular in conjunction with Secretary Mattis because of what he said about it marked the point when my opinion of him turned from positive to negative. On October 14, 2018 The New York Times reported that:
Never a direct critic in public, Mr. Mattis has privately disagreed with the president on issues like NATO policy, Mr. Trump’s decision to cancel large-scale joint exercises with the South Koreans, and the long-term effectiveness of the president’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.
But The Times also reported that:
"The recent publication of a book by Bob Woodward may have widened those cracks. In the book, Mr. Woodward writes that after a briefing on North Korea, Mr. Mattis told colleagues that Mr. Trump had the understanding of “fifth or sixth grader.” Mr. Mattis denied saying that.
The Times notes that the Secretary was not only unhappy about our Korean policy, but he also found himself frequently treading a fine line on carrying out some of Mr. Trump’s orders, including moving slowly when the president tweeted an order to bar transgender troops from joining the military. The tweet, which came while Mr. Mattis was on vacation, caught the Pentagon brass off guard. My problems start with the fact that I agree with the President in all the above issues, although it's beginning to look like North Korea is taking advantage of what they see as weakness in Trump because of the loss of the House of Representatives to the Democrats. The constant treason of Schumer and Pelosi make the President look wounded, but when Mattis also allows leaks of his opposition to the President that smacks of insubordination. Decisions about how long to stay in Syria, or whether to give North Korea a chance to prove their intention to disarm are above Mattis' pay grade. We elect the President to make them, though the opinion of the Secretary of Defense should be taken seriously.
What about Syria? That modern name is not on the matrix, but its ancient name ASSYRIA is and it's at the same skip as KOREA and JAMES MATTIS. Odds against ASSYRIA being at a special case skip were about 9.85 to 1. Mattis opposes our withdrawing all 2,000 troops from Syria. Is ISIS really totally defeated? Almost, but not quite. However, if we get out of Syria then a primary target for ISIS will be Russia rather than us. Russia, with its long held naval base in Tartus, Syria, has an established need to be in Syria, even if it means backing the murderous President Assad. We don't need to be there in close proximity to the Russians. Israel can counterbalance much of what the Russians are up to. ISRAEL is on the matrix but it had an 81% chance to be in the open text. Fear not, NETANYAHU is also on the matrix at skip +1 against odds of about 22.7 to 1. FROM THE MILITARY touches NETANYAHU. MILITARY at skip +1 had about a 26% chance to be somewhere on the matrix.
I am concerned about safety for our Kurdish allies, however supposedly Turkish President Erdoğan has given us assurances that he would hold off on a military operation against the U.S.-backed Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria, citing a telephone conversation this past week with U.S. President Donald Trump. Erdoğan said that, "Our phone call with Mr. Trump, as well as the contacts of our diplomatic and security units, and the statements from the American side have led us to wait a little longer." However he also said that, "Of course, this is not an open waiting period." There are two major reasons for why we have tolerated Erdoğan's constant murderous nature: (1) Turkey's control of the Bosphorus through which Russian Navy ships must pass when going to or from the Black Sea and the Mediterranean and (2) our presence at Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey. We are considering cutting back on use of the base. Frankly I'm in favor of suspending Turkey's membership in NATO until Erdoğan is out of office, but there is the issue of whether Turkey would then ally with Russia. My preference would be to tell Erdoğan where to go, and to both recognize and arm an independent Kurdistan. The Kurds are allies of Israel, whereas Turkey acts like an enemy of Israel. On December 23, 2018 Netanyahu called Erdoğan an anti-Semitic dictator. He has also indicated that Israel may expand operations in Syria against Iran after the U.S. pulls out of Syria.
Overall, after factoring in ELS rank 3 of the axis term, this matrix with 8 key words (B. OBAMA, QUITTER, PRESIDENT, KOREA, ASSYRIA, NETANYAHU, ISRAEL, and MILITARY) found at special case skips, plus TRUMP at its minimum skip, was found against astounding odds of over 1.3 trllion to 1.
While Trump originally loved to refer to Mattis by his nickname Mad Dog, with time he looked and acted more like a lost pound puppy. He recommended that the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff be Air Force chief, General David Goldfein. I don't yet know much about General Goldfein other than the fact that he is a fellow Jew, but I was thrilled to learn about General Mark A. Milley's selection because he once sent me a Facebook* friend request that consisted of nothing more (or less) than the Abstract to my 1,100 page report, Mars Correct - Critique of All NASA Mars Weather Data. The report is constantly updated, but you can find the latest link at http://davidaroffman.com/photo2_18.html. This means my Mars research will be followed by someone at the White House. I'm not sure if General Milley also follows my Codes research but it's likely that my Intel friends at Fort Huachuca have also passed information about it to him too. I see that they were on this article several times today, as they always are. DoD Intel folks are the primary audience addressed by articles like that you are reading now although the religious and scientifically curious are also certainly welcome here too.
In closing I'd like to summarize what Figure 1 reveals and how to use this kind of finding. It is very rare to find so many key words at special case skips on a matrix this size. While there is surely more here than what I have found, and while funding Project Creator Decoder would be useful in finding it, what the Code does best is to paint a picture of a subject or situation. Probabilities help us understand what is background noise and what is not, but a matrix like this can give intelligence analysts a chance to understand where to direct their assets to get a better portrait of what the truth is.
I have other matrices previously posted about Secretary Mattis. They deal with why he was named as Secretary of Defense.
