Omnipresident – Part 1


“Donald Trump was providential. He’s a blunt force trauma armor piercing shell.” – Steve Bannon

If you are the opponents of Donald Trump you must be thinking what in the heck is going on? Does this man not understand the word former?

Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr, Clinton, Bush Jr, Obama….every single one of them eventually faded publicly, some a little more than others but for the most part they checked out.

Donald Trump is anything but checked out. In fact, you get the sense he is everywhere all at the same time. He’s issuing statements left and right on every conceivable topic from raids, rigging, audits, borders, endorsements, and a host of other topics. We’re talking about a former President who has one more rally coming up in the next week after just completing his 26th since the 2020 election. This guy seems like he is everywhere still to this very day. Is this how a former President conducts himself? When I think of Donald J. Trump the last word that comes to mind is former. Regardless of your position on his actual status politically there is no arguing his presence has never been stronger.

But why is he doing this? And I am not looking for all the common answers:

  • Because the election was stolen
  • Because the real insurrection was November 3rd, 2020
  • Because Biden can’t be president
  • Because the commies are trying to take over

I get it. All those things are true and I don’t want to diminish the importance of any of them. But none of those statements answer that one simple question. Why is he doing this? He is doing this because there was, is, and has always been a plan. Just watch, look, and listen.

In my recent 6 part Substack series Flight 1745 we cover a range of happenings within the Donald Trump geo-political sphere that will either confirm your suspicions, enhance you understanding, or flat out surprise you in ways that are both encouraging and thought provoking. Often times we spend so many cycles on what ‘they’ did when we should be spending far more time on what is being done right before our eyes by what the history books will call ‘The Heroes of the Trump Era’.

And don’t kid yourself. That is precisely what we are experiencing, a ‘Trump Era’. The definition around era is open to interpretation, but for example purposes let’s say it’s 10 or more years. I believe the Trump era when all is said and done will likely have lasted from 2015-2030. From the moment he came down the escalator until at least 2 years into the term of whomever follows him after he leaves office at the end of 2028. The first two years of a new administration is often a reflection of both the incoming and outgoing administration and the current administration is a picture perfect example. I am quite sure that even many democrats are looking back at the first Trump term with ever-growing fondness.


“Another type of war, new in its intensity, ancient in its origin, that would require a whole new kind of strategy, a wholly different kind of force, forces which are too unconventional to be called conventional forces.”
                                                      – Ezra Cohen-Watnick (November 18, 2020 at Fort Bragg, NC)

When I heard those words come out of the mouth of Ezra Cohen-Watnick I knew then and there something was up. No incoming Active Secretary of Defense for Intelligence gives a ‘vision’ speech of that magnitude knowing good and well he will only serve for 2 months. Nothing about what took place between November 3rd, 2020 and January 20th, 2021 was conventional. We had the entire spectrum of events from high-level DOD personnel changes, a fake insurrection, alternate electors, and a fake inauguration. But there’s the scene on the stage and then there’s backstage.

One common mistake in trying to understand Donald Trump is misconstruing what is coming out of his mouth with what is actually taking place. There are far too many evil actors out for blood for him to even consider telegraphing his next move, even if it’s a source of frustration for folks like you and I. In constructing a good plan it is important to surround yourself with individuals that are bought into the plan, even if it means they eventually play a role that shows them in a much less than favorable light. That’s right. You have to be willing to play the role of the loyalist as well as the betrayer. Having a circle of folks to play these various roles is critically important. Because in order to win Trump would have to create the consistent illusion of mass chaos and convince most everyone that the left hand had no idea what the right hand was doing.  In this series we’ll see that was far from the case. We look into the role of 9 individuals and how they have shaped not only the narrative but the actual events that have us on the brink of generational victories. Some of the faces will be familiar but a few may make you pause and wonder why. For those familiar with my ‘Flight 1745’ Substack series you will be seeing largely new information in this 3 part series with small amounts of re-coverage for contextual purposes only. The difference being is that in this series our focus will be on understanding this idea of an OmniPresidency and it’s impact. There are others that could potentially have made the list but for this series, here are the 9 key players.

As we approach what appears to be the inevitability of a second dose of Donald Trump you’ll see a framework that was put together and the key decisions that were made along the way. These decisions consistently have the Trump fingerprints on them and in some cases even though he may not have been directly involved you still get the sense he was.

The two we’ll start with in this issue are Larry Ellison and Ezra Cohen-Watnick. I’ll give a brief profile for each.



Net Worth: $62.5 Billion

Larry Ellison is the co-founder of the Oracle Corporation, and he was also the company’s CEO until September 2014 when he stepped down but remained on as CTO and remains so today. Over nearly a 40 year span, Oracle has become an incredibly successful tech company, now employing over 136,000 people. Oracle is all about data and database that can operate at a scale that not even the federal government can rival.

Larry Ellison is 4th on this list of the richest people in America and as most everyone knows, Oracle and Larry Ellison are big supporters of President Trump.


      Ezra Cohen-Watnick is an American intelligence official who served as the acting under secretary of defense for intelligence during the Trump Administration. He previously served as the acting assistant secretary of defense for special operations and low-intensity conflict, national security adviser to the United States attorney general and as a former senior director for intelligence programs for the United States National Security Council (NSC). Currently, he is adjunct fellow at Hudson Institute, focusing on intelligence policy as well as the chair of the Public Interest Declassification Board where he was appointed by Trump and continues to serve under Biden).

So why start with these two? I believe Larry and Ezra are undeniably linked. Below are 3 facts about events that took place in sequential order by month.

So yes, it is significant that Ezra was fired from the NSC, hired by Larry Ellison and Oracle, and then the first Q post appears. But having worked in technology for over 30 years now the blaring question around the Q technology platform was this: Why is it that this Q message board was never able to be brought down? Even to this day some 2 years into a Biden presidency why do we still have a completely secure and active Q message board? Wouldn’t it be ridiculously easy with the resources of the CIA, NSA, and CISA to take down this message board tomorrow if they so chose? The answer is of course yes, it would be very easy. You and I both know that there is probably nothing the Biden administration wanted more than for that stupid Q message board to go away but they can’t make it go away no matter how hard they try. I contend the reason for that is because it sits behind enterprise level firewalls and data encryption that not even foreign state actors with sophisticated threat technology could even begin to penetrate.

But something that flew under the radar with the firing of Ezra from the NSC was the fact that this was actually a second if not a third attempt to fire him. Take a look at this excerpt from the Atlantic which was published on July 23, 2017 (9 days before his firing).






There was one person, however, who McMaster couldn’t get rid of: Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence programs. McMaster tried to remove him in March, but President Trump, at the urging of Bannon and Jared Kushner, told McMaster that Cohen-Watnick was staying, as first reported by Politico. According to a senior White House official, the two men had a sit-down meeting the following week in which McMaster acknowledged that he hadn’t been able to do what he wanted to do, and that they would keep things as they are and “see how they go for a while.” That was over four months ago. That Cohen-Watnick, 31 years old and largely unknown before entering the administration, has become unfireable reveals how important he has become to the Trump White House, where loyalty is prized.

So this brings to mind another key question. Why would Trump block the firing of Ezra in March only to approve it in August? What happened between March and August that suddenly swung the pendulum against keeping Ezra on? Actually, that wasn’t the case at all. This was a simple case of Trump not being done using Ezra. The services of one Ezra Cohen-Watnick would come in three phases.  Phase 1 was making sure Devin Nunes had the goods he needed to begin spinning up the ‘spying’ narrative that was so critical to the success of the overall plan. Because remember, it was March 22, 2017 that Nunes had the impromptu press conference where he claimed he had seen evidence that communications between President Donald Trump and members of his transition team were “incidentally collected” during surveillance operations of foreign targets.

And then on Thursday afternoon, March 29, 2017 it was reported that National Security Council senior director for intelligence Ezra Cohen-Watnick and White House national security lawyer Michael Ellis provided Nunes the intelligence documents, indicating a direct thread between the administration and the original news conference. At his daily press briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer declines to comment, saying he chooses to focus more on the “substance” than the “process.”

So McMaster had it out for Ezra and wanted him gone much earlier than August but that was not going to happen so Trump blocked the initial firing. Phase 2 of the plan (after the eventual firing of Ezra in August) was the handoff of Ezra to Oracle in September. Ezra would report to Safra Catz (CEO) and Larry Ellison (CTO). For some context without getting too far into the weeds here are a few headlines  and sources that underscore the history of mutual support between Trump and Oracle.

Let’s say you were a guy in your mid-30s with no background whatsoever in large corporate America. Do you think it would be practical or even possible that you would land a director position reporting directly to the CEO of the largest software database company in the world?

That is not a ‘until you an land on your feet again’ job but rather a title that was planned. What Ezra started doing during that late 2017 timeframe was quite significant in my estimation. In fact, 2017 wasn’t the first time that Larry and Ezra would cross paths. If you fast forward to November of 2020 they would both be in the news again at almost precisely the same time related to the exact same subject…..the election of 2020 (Phase 3).

This only makes sense when you begin to understand the deep ties between Donald J. Trump and Larry Ellison which I detailed out over my various other articles on Substack. But sometimes the dead giveaway can come straight from the enemies camp and in this case it was the Washington Post who also reported on the November 2020 call that Larry Ellison participated in but they brought up some critical information that we may never have found out otherwise. Read this excerpt….. (remember, this was never meant to be revealed and ONLY came out to the public as part of legal discovery related to an entirely different case).

The Nov. 14 call included Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.); Fox News host Sean Hannity; Jay Sekulow, an attorney for President Donald Trump; and James Bopp Jr., an attorney for True the Vote, a Texas-based nonprofit that has promoted disputed claims of widespread voter fraud. Ellison’s participation illustrates a previously unknown dimension in the multifaceted campaign to challenge Trump’s loss, an effort still coming into focus more than 18 months later. It is the first known example of a technology industry titan joining powerful figures in conservative politics, media and law to strategize about Trump’s post-loss options and confer with an activist group that had already filed four lawsuits seeking to uncover evidence of illegal voting. It is not clear from the court filings whether Ellison took part in subsequent calls. But his participation puzzled Fred Eshelman, the major donor to True the Vote who received Englebrecht’s email describing the call. In an email to Engelbrecht two days later, he asked for more information about Ellison’s involvement. “Why was he on call with Senator Graham? Is he part of the data/analysis solution, is he a potential large donor, other?” Eshelman wrote in a Nov. 16 email to Engelbrecht and Bopp in advance of a planned call among them. An Eshelman associate said they never got an answer. The lack of clarity inflamed tensions between Eshelman and True the Vote.

A couple very important quotes:

  • It is the first known example of a technology industry titan joining powerful figures in conservative politics, media and law to strategize about Trump’s post-loss options.
  • Eshelman asks, “Why was he on call with Senator Graham? Is he part of the data/analysis solution, is he a potential large donor, other?”

The second point is key. Eshelman is not talking about shots in the dark. He’s talking about a solution that appeared to already exist.

A couple final points to round things out. There is zero chance (and I mean zero) that Larry Ellison (4th richest man in America) is going to participate in a phone call about overturning a U.S. Presidential Election unless he already knew what the end result would eventually be. When Larry hired Ezra back in 2017 there was likely a massive reason which I detail in my free Substack series. The goal was not only to catch the steal but to prevent any future theft from even being a possibility. I have contended for quite some time that the activity that was taking place between September of 2017 and November of 2020 was perhaps the most consequential period that may forever fly under the radar….which is just as well.

Larry and Ezra were participating in their slice of the OmniPresidency where the end is already known from the beginning. Well, if they had the solution why didn’t they present it so the election could be overturned? Because it was never meant to be overturned….at least not yet. Donald Trump was and is in the midst of something that will make his 2016 victory look like a junior high class treasurer election by comparison. Only in retrospect will any of us truly appreciate it.

Don’t let your personal frustrations cloud the much bigger picture of what is taking place. It’s tough work correcting the past while simultaneously forging the path ahead. Besides, let’s not forget that we are talking about a guy that trademarked the phrase ‘Make America Great Again’ just a few days after Romney lost to Obama. That’s right. Back in 2012. (Washington Post Article).

Like Churchill before him, the future will end up being kind to Donald Trump….because he intends to write it.
