(Melchizedek Communique, MC021809) On Feb. 3, 2009, Melchizedek Communique reported on the suspicious doings of one "Cheeta", a supposedly lovable chimpanzee involved in shady dealings, and asked, "What else is the sly creature plotting, even now? Take another look at Cheeta, if you dare." 
As usual, the Melchizedek Communique report was colossally ignored. Until, that is, one Travis, another colossal chimpanzee, went berserk yesterday. "The Connecticut woman viciously attacked by a 200-pound chimp who inexplicably went bananas remains in critical condition this afternoon and faces 'life-changing, if not life-threatening injuries' to her face and hands, officials said." 
In the classic British 1960s television series, The Prisoner, the mysterious top person, Number One, is ultimately revealed. "In the final episode, Number One initially appears as a hooded figure. When confronted by The Prisoner, he is wearing a mask of an ape, but when this mask is removed, the face of Number Six himself is revealed. Number One then climbs up a ladder and seals a hatch behind him, laughing madly all the while." 
The allusion, in the current context of Travis, the Xanax-affected chimpanzee, is the world as being run by a crazed chimpanzee!
It is not so much the Travis goes berserk event, but the symbolism, which matters. Usual mundane explanations of "out of his natural habitat" can be found elsewhere. There, the old synapse patterns of most brains are re-ignited by events such as this, and worn-out commentaries result.
In Chicago, Mayor Richard M. Daley, is "The Prisoner" of the Democratic machine. Daley is Number Six. Barack Obama is Number Two. Obama has not yet found out who is Number One.
The economic stimulus money will be used to expand nationally the Chicago System of patronage politics. You want a city job? Then vote Democratic. That's how it's been in Chicago now for decades. And, it is feared, the Chicago System is about to take over the country, just as the Chicago mob is said to have taken over organized crime nationally in the 1930s. 
Reportedly, on Feb. 6, 2009, talk radio host Michael Savage fielded a call from a man identified as "Bob". Bob reportedly stated he "was in a meeting after Obama got elected and I was told by the Democratic officials in that meeting that we were going to get billions of dollars that was going to come down the pike our way and what we were to do with it was that we were supposed to build a -- we're going to build an army of Democratic patronage jobs that is going to completely freeze out the Republicans for ever and ever." 
On Feb. 15, Melchizedek Communique reported something similar: "Chicago, writes Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass, 'must be the epicenter of political reform now that Mayor Richard Daley's guys are running the White House and the U.S. Census, and are about to wet the beaks of federal road and bridge contractors.'" 
Of course, the Republican Party is equally dismal at this point as has been the Democrat Party. The point is, we want competition between parties. If Chicago politics extends nationally, and a one-party machine rules the USA, then the crazed chimpanzee, Number One, will totally emerge.
