DONALD TRUMP, ENEMY MEDIA AND SLEEP ISSUES
Posted on 2/28/2017
On February 20, 2017 I published a matrix at http://arkcode.com/custom3_432.html with an axis term of ENEMY NEWS. There was a distant 4-letter transliteration of TRUMP on it. It is displayed below as Figure 2, but Figure 1 here shows that with an axis term of DONALD TRUMP we find that at the same absolute skip (but opposite direction) are the words MEDIA and ENEMY. As this article grows we will look at the issue of lack of sleep for our President how that might affect some of his decisions. Those matrices will be based around the same DONALD TRUMP axis term shown on Figure 1 here, and (on Figure 4) the axis term INSOMNIA.
Figure 1 above has an axis term of DONALD TRUMP and key words MEDIA and ENEMY at the same absolute skip as the axis term.
The spreadsheet above shows that Figure 1 - with both ENEMY and MEDIA found at special case skips (+/-1 or the absolute skip of the axis term) was found against odds of about 5,786 to 1.
As I wrote on February 20, 2017, on February 17, 2017 President Trump tweeted that, "The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!" Notice that he did not attack all news, he only attacked FAKE NEWS media. The President also said, "I think it's very, very unfair what's happened to Gen. Flynn, the way he was treated, and the documents and papers that were illegally — I stress that — illegally leaked. Very, very unfair.”
On Figure 2 below the axis term is ENEMY NEWS. In the tiny 70-letter box with a tan background is FLYNN at the same skip as ENEMY NEWS. Also in this box is GENERAL at skip -1 crossing and sharing a letter vav with ENEMY NEWS. Moving to the full 660-letter matrix, the fake news has long backed so called sanctuary cities. They are described in Numbers 35:15. Crossing ENEMY NEWS is "For the stranger and for the settler among them, shall these six cities be for refuge, that every one that kills any person through error may flee there." Trump will build a wall on the Mexican border. While not the preferred spellings, there is a short 4-letter ELS for TRUMP that touches an ELS for MEXICO. Figure 2 was found against odds of about 1,741,441 to 1.
Figure 2 has an axis term of ENEMY NEWS.
Figure 3 - This shows the same ELS of DONALD TRUMP as was on Figure 1, but the field is shifted to the right to show key terms found there.

ABBY HAGLAGE ENTITLED DONALD TRUMP’S 4-HOUR SLEEP HABIT COULD EXPLAIN HIS PERSONALITY.
For most people, four hours of sleep per night is dangerously insufficient, triggering short-term cognitive impairment and long-term chronic health problems. Luckily for Donald Trump—and increasingly, no one else—he’s not most people.
The real estate mogul turned presidential nominee has peppered his campaign with remarks about how little he sleeps each night, anywhere from 90 minutes to four hours. Perhaps he’s lying or simply bragging, opting to pit himself against powerful public figures who have said the same, like Napoleon, Margaret Thatcher, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, and Bill Clinton.
Perhaps he’s one of the two percent of the population with a rare genetic mutation that allows him to get a perfect night’s rest in nearly half the time.
Upbeat, energetic, and healthy, those with the “efficient sleeper” mutation are near-superhumans—a group of brains so advanced they’ve uprooting everything we know about sleep. They’re the tireless, unwavering, “sleepless elite.” Is Trump one of them?
Doing so puts him smack in the middle of a powerful list of who have claimed to subsist on little sleep as well.
Despite the renewed interest in Trump’s sleep schedule, it’s one he’s claimed to have for years.
“Don’t sleep any more than you have to,” Trump wrote in his 2004 book Think Like a Billionaire. “I usually sleep about four hours per night.” The narrative resurfaced at a campaign event in Springfield, Illinois last November. “You know, I’m not a big sleeper,” he said. “I like three hours, four hours, I toss, I turn, I beep-de-beep, I want to find out what’s going on.”
According to sleep experts, this is dangerous behavior.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine’s (AASM) officially recommends at least seven hours of sleep for adults aged 18 to 60, same with the National Sleep Foundation. Both are aimed at preventing the risks associated with chronic sleep deprivation, including obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
“Sleep is critical to health, along with a healthy diet and regular exercise,” said Dr. Nathaniel F. Watson, the president of AASM. “Our Consensus Panel found that sleeping six or fewer hours per night is inadequate to sustain health and safety in adults and agreed that seven or more hours of sleep per night is recommended for all healthy adults.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one third of Americans are sleep deprived—a problem that leads to 100,000 traffic accidents from drowsy drivers per year. On top of heart and weight issues, the CDC says people who are sleep deprived are more likely to suffer from cancer and depression, more likely to lose productivity at work, and more likely to die young.
With this information, The New York Times and others conjured up a convincing “sleep-deprivation theory” about Trump, in which his chronic sleeplessness is to blame for his erratic, offensive, … behavior.
“He shows all the scary symptoms of sleep deprivation,” writes Timothy Egan. “His judgment is off, and almost always ill informed. He has trouble processing basic information. He imagines things. He shows a lack of concentration.”
But enticing as the theory is, the Donald’s multi-billion-dollar empire and near perfect health at the age of 69 leave room for doubt that he’s been depriving himself of sleep for two decades with zero health consequences. While his comments point to delirium, Trump’s age, health, and financial success point to something more like the “efficient sleeper” gene.
Those who can sustain normal—even successful—lives on less than four hours a night with perfect health are a rare breed. There are two types of people that can achieve this: “habitual short sleepers,” and “natural short sleepers.” The first have trained themselves to sleep less, pitting them ahead of the competition but in danger of suffering long term health consequences. The second, less than 2 percent of the population, are carriers of a rare mutation on the DEC2 gene that allows them to reap the benefits of a full night’s sleep in half the time.
Habitual short sleepers, who’ve trained themselves, are powerful but more or less doomed. They’ve learned to conquer the short term effects of sleep deprivation, like cognitive impairment and emotional instability, but they’re not immune to the long term risks of keeping themselves awake. The brain needs its full amount of sleep to flush out chemicals it doesn’t need and “restart.” Without the ability to do this, the risk for dozens of diseases—like Alzheimer’s, which killed Margaret Thatcher—spikes.
Natural short sleepers are whole different animal. Carrying a mutation on the DEC2 gene, they show near perfect health in their 90s and an endless supply of energy. With hyper-efficient brains, they reap the benefits of a full night of sleep in nearly half the time, leading the researcher who discovered them to nickname them “efficient sleepers.” They’re immune from the dangers of sleep deprivation because, for them, four hours is all they need.
In a word, they’re superhuman.
STATISTICAL AND POLITICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF FIGURE 3. The word MEDIA is discussed in conjunction with Figure 1. It was left on Figure 3 to make clearer the relationship of terms to Figure 1. The combined odds here are not significant enough to show that exhaustion is causing President Trump to make mistakes. However, the word EXHAUSTION was the most significant new term found in an a priori manner. It was found at skip +1 on the full 1,122-letter matrix against odds of about 17.5 to 1, but it was found in a 55-letter box with DONALD TRUMP against odds of about 346 to 1. Neither IRAN nor MISTAKE were significant with each having at least a 59% chance to be at an ELS. The next most significant term after EXHAUSTION was the term IN THE MORNING which followed LABAN AROSE. The close association of EXHAUSTION with IN THE MORNING may be used to indicate that the Code Author knew about the President's sleep habits, but not that his problem (or gift) would cause a war. There is an open text reference to ALL WHO GO OUT TO WAR, but it had about a 17% chance to be found on the full matrix, and when it comes to Trump and war, clearly he came into office when we are at war with ISIS/Daesh. Daesh is not found on Figure 3, but it is on the expanded version of Figure 4.
The odds calculation for Figure 3 is shown below. Most significant is the word EXHAUSTED that appears at skip +1 in 55 letters with DONALD TRUMP. The true odds are even more significant than shown here because this calculation does not take into consideration conflicting letters in the axis term.
Figure 4 matches the only ELS of INSOMNIA in Torah with TRUMP at the preferred spelling. As the spreadsheet after Figure 4 shows, TRUMP was the only significant a priori match with INSOMNIA. The reference to foreigners was only found a posteriori and is therefore not part of the calculation. There was about 1 chance in 144 to have this best spelling of TRUMP in 1,056 letters with INSOMNIA.
With respect to the phrase in Leviticus 19:34 that was found on Figure 4 in an a posteriori manner (which means that it can't be used in a statistics calculation), the verse was found in assocition with INSOMNIA as the axis term, not TRUMP. Often we can lean a lot from a posteriori findings, so let's consider it without assigning statistics to it. The phrase is The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners (in the land of Egypt). President Trump is exactly right about the need to get rapists, theives and murderers out of our country. To do so effectly means that we must have a wall on the border. Without a wall the criminals just walk right back into our nation after we thow them out. But we do need the Mexicans to pick our crops and clean our hotel rooms - and to do other jobs that Americans do not want. We do NOT need the Mexicans or anyone else as physicists or engineers because we don't have enough jobs for American physicists and engineers. I know this because my son, who has a PhD in physics, has only been able to find work as a postdoc at Yale in New Haven, CT where he makes about $22,000 less than a New Haven kindergarden teacher! Recently I learned that when Amerdican businesses hire Indian or Chinese scientists they often pay them much less than half of what they woyuld pay American scientists. This must stop. The horror of what Americamn scientist face in the job market os best summed up inh an article entitled DON"T BECOME A SCIENTIST! by Physics Professor Jonathan J. Katz at Washington University in St. Louis. A highlight of the article is as follows:
American universities train roughly twice as many Ph.D.s as there are jobs for them. When something, or someone, is a glut on the market, the price drops. In the case of Ph.D. scientists, the reduction in price takes the form of many years spent in ``holding pattern'' postdoctoral jobs. Permanent jobs don't pay much less than they used to, but instead of obtaining a real job two years after the Ph.D. (as was typical 25 years ago) most young scientists spend five, ten, or more years as postdocs. They have no prospect of permanent employment and often must obtain a new postdoctoral position and move every two years. For many more details consult the Young Scientists' Network or read the account in the May, 2001 issue of the Washington Monthly.
So what should we do with the Mexicans who are here now? Here is the deal on how to handle illegal Mexicans that makes sense to me. Those already in the U.S. can stay under the following conditions:
1. They obtain a Mexican passport by physically applying for one in Mexico or on Mexican territory (at the Mexican embassy in the U.S. or at Mexican consulates).
2. Only those who have no criminal record in the U.S. are allowed to stay, and if they must have a job here now like picking crops or cleaning hotel rooms. (i.e., jobs Americans don't want).
3. Highly skilled people (if any) who have degrees like a PhD in physics or engineering will not be allowed to stay unless all Americans in these fields (like my 24-year old son who has a PhD in physics) have employment in these fields.
4. Workers must pay $100 each for a U.S. visa good for 6 months. That money can be used to help pay for building the wall.
5. The visa is renewable as many times as they desire if they still hold jobs and have no criminal record.
6. They must pay for visas for all children not already born here.
7. There is no visa cost for children already born here one year before this agreement takes effect.
8. There will be no new work permit visas issued for people not in the U.S.
9. Children who stay in the U.S. while their parents stay on work visas, and who were born in the U.S. before this agreement took effect are eligible for U.S. citizenship if they have no criminal record when they turn 18.

BOTTOM LINE: The Code makes clear that President Trump and much of the news media were meant to have an adversial relationship. It suggests that he would have an issue with sleep, but that might be more of a problem for the advisors who have to keep up with his exhausting schedule of 20-hour work days. There is not a clear indiction that he would be unable to maintain his schedule, but when we look at the initial Executive Order 7-nation restrictions on admissions to our country, even when the people coming in had green cards or were returning from visiting relatives, we have to wonder whether those who drafted the executive act were operating with enough sleep.
