All stars in alignment for an October Surprise

An "October Surprise" usually occurs during a Presidential election season which this year most definitely is not.  Welcome to "this time is different."  The job of the world is to sense our weakness and attack.  That's what it means to be number one.  It's lonely at the top.  Everyone's gunnin' for ya'.  If there was a plan and I was looking to "send a message" I would do it BEFORE "the rookies" arrived.
