The big “referendum” in a suburban Atlanta district is done. Georgia Republican Karen Handel has defeated Democrat Jon Ossoff for a congressional seat.
“Democrats also lost a special election in neighboring South Carolina on Tuesday, where Republican Ralph Norman easily prevailed over Democrat Archie Parnell…” 
There have been other of these “referendums” since President Donald Trump was sworn in back in January. “Democrats are 0 for 4 in congressional elections this year, having earlier lost races to fill vacant seats in Kansas and Montana.” 
Tweeted Trump late in the evening of June 20th: “Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O! All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0.”
In this part of the movie, the embattled president wards off the Munchkins, and then follows the Yellow Brick Road to a change in the healthcare law. This should be coming to the fore around Friday, June 23rd, coincident to a New Moon. In this weekly serial, a crisis build-up typically climaxes on Fridays, and the audience is left with a cliff-hanger over the weekend.
Sometimes all the excitement of this movie gets to be too much. As a daily antidote I take an hour or two to read some ponderous book. I am re-reading now The Secret Team, by the late Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty. It charts the rise of the CIA since around 1947. Among other things, Prouty claims the so-called “Pentagon Papers” really deserve to be called the “CIA Papers.” A fake history on this subject from Hollywood, USA, is scheduled for release around January 2018. “Is Steven Spielberg’s Trump-Timed ‘The Post’ the Start of a New Wave of Movies That Matter?” asks Owen Gleiberman in Variety (online). Gleiberman got “a shiver of anticipation” when he found out about the movie. 
Gleiberman says the film has begun shooting and is set for release later this year. A different source had indicated around January 2018 for release.  Somehow the movie is tentatively named “The Post”, even though Rand Corporation analyst Daniel Ellsberg leaked the CIA Papers (“Pentagon Papers”) to the New York Times.
