MEMORANDUM FOR THE PRESIDENT

Subject:  Re-Asserting Your Command – Eight Decisions for Monday

1. Background. The system is rigged and you were not supposed to win. You need to unrig the system if you are to survive and be effective. Syria, right now, is your Bay of Pigs moment. Both the leaders of the US secret intelligence community and the US banking community are lying to you.

2. Action This Day. I humbly offer the following eight decisions for your consideration.
