Fighting for Peace is a work in progress by Dr. Dannielle Blumenthal, based on her observations of current events in the United States throughout 2020.
This document, a work in progress, represents her entries from January 2020 alone. As a diary, it is fragmented, incomplete, and will have typos, errors, and incorrect conclusions.
The author shares this work in progress because events are moving quickly. This is done as a public service to assist researchers—whether they be citizens, law enforcement, the media, or anyone else—in pursuing their own areas of interest and forming their own conclusions.
The observations reported are based on the author’s reading, research, insight, and instincts. Further, we have limited knowledge, and are continually bombarded with information—frequently without knowing which sources are credible, and even then, not knowing when those sources may be deliberately providing misinformation to throw an enemy off track.

So I’m in the coffee shop as usual getting my coffee and it is warm-ish and I’m annoyed. The coffee shop is nearby the White House and two men in business suits are sitting and talking to each other. Each one has their own table and they’re talking across the tables, so loud.
