The Trump Primer Reminder

Beware yee who are closed-of-mind and lovers of Trumpism for that is the ultimate blindness.

Who is the real Donald Trump, and did the media have a reason to lie about that Donald for the last 70 years before he ran for and became the President of the United States thanks to being the only republic with a flawed and outdated Electoral College? The rest of the republics and/or democracies in the world use the popular vote, the one Trump lost.

Because Trump is a malignant narcissist and psychopath that craves attention and his cult of worshipers, he has a long history documented by the media and the courts.


Listen to Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without permission. He said, “And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.”

Politico reported, “Donald Trump might be one of the most deeply studied presidential candidates ever. Beginning in the early 1990s, as the real estate mogul dealt with corporate calamities, and until last year, when he descended the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his candidacy, a half-dozen serious biographies have been written about a man who has imprinted himself on American culture in towering gold letters. But those biographies—which dig into Trump’s family history, his early business successes and later financial disasters, his tabloid sex scandals and the television showmanship that saved him—had largely receded into the depths of Amazon’s bestseller list. Now those books—which have not always been to Trump’s liking; he sued one of the authors unsuccessfully for libel—have become precious source material for those eager to explain Trump ….”

In fact, Trump is not a great negotiator. The evidence he is a failure is the fact that he has been involved in more than 4,000 court cases. Great, honest negotiators rarely end up in court and seldom if ever lose when they do, because honesty works.

USA Today dug deep in Trump’s court history. He doesn’t win them all and many of them came about because he is a horrible negotiator and often breaks the contracts he signed.  There are words for that: liar and fraud.

In addition, Donald Trump is a malignant narcissist and this makes him very dangers as the President of the United States.

The American Psychiatry Association has a nine-point checklist for narcissism – if someone displays just five of the traits, they have Narcissistic Personality Disorder:

  • Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).
  • Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
  • Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions).
  • Requires excessive admiration.
  • Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favourable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.
  • Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.
  • Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognise or identify with the feelings and needs of others.
  • Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.
  • Shows arrogant, haughty behaviours or attitudes.

Even Trump’s most ardent supporters will have trouble denying at least five of those characteristics. I think there is evidence from Trump’s long history of behavior for all nine. For more about Trump’s dangerous mental illness, read The Mind of Donald Trump.

Then there’s Trump’s long history with organized crime from the United States to Russia. Politico reports, “Trump’s career has benefited from a decades-long and largely successful effort to limit and deflect law enforcement investigations into his dealings with top mobsters, organized crime associates, labor fixers, corrupt union leaders, con artists and even a one-time drug trafficker whom Trump retained as the head of his personal helicopter service.”

Then there are the biographies written before 2016.

The Art of Being Donald Trump by Timothy L. O’Brien was first published in 2005.

“Somewhere there is another country, far beyond the pale, known as Bad Taste, and Trump has devoted his life to racing through it and staking as many private claims as possible, pausing only to yodel back to the homeland songs of himself.”― Michael Lewis, author of Liar’s Poker and Moneyball

Trumped: The Inside Story of the Real Donald Trump-His Cunning Rise and Spectacular Fall by John R. O’Donnell and James Rutherford was first published in 1991.

“As chief operating officer at Trump Plaza, O’Donnell was in almost daily contact with his boss. If familiarity did not breed contempt, it eventually led to distaste. Trump at work emerges here as a cocksure boor who pays precious little attention to detail and pins the blame for his own misjudgments on subordinates. While he seems surprisingly dumb when it comes to weighing a deal’s downside risks against its potential rewards, he apparently suffers from near- terminal overconfidence. … And Trump at play with his yacht, helicopter, and other trophies is an equally unappealing eminence. A lover of gossip, The Donald has a phobia about germs, which makes him reluctant to shake hands with high-rolling customers or mingle with the celebs he adores and caters to. Nor does the abstemious Trump have a talent for extramarital flings. A long-running, oddly joyous affair with Marla Maples cost him his marriage to Ivana—and a good deal more.”

Let’s hope the next time Trump fails and falls, and he will because he had a history of failure, he doesn’t take all of humanity with him.

For more books about Trump, here’s the complete list. Stick to the books about Trump that came before 2016 and his political life as a candidate and then President of the United States.

There might not be much time left to read these books. If Trump is the Anti-Christ, and even he doesn’t know if he is (he is that ignorant), then the Trump Apocalypse will take place and that will lead to the Biblical one and the end of our species. Who will inherit the earth after we are gone: dogs, cats, cockroaches, ants, or rats?

This post was written lest we forget who the 45th President of the United States is because too many Americans are becoming globally infamous for being citizens of the fattest country on the planet (while a billion people around the world face starvation), for their short attention spans, even shorter memoires, and their ability to be easily fooled by false facts and conspiracy theories. I wonder if all that fat has anything to do with it. After all, too much body fat is bad for the brain. If true, maybe we can blame the rise of Trumpism on fast food, and The Donald loves fast food.

History.org says, “A 1786 essay refers to an early, non-English form of the familiar saying ‘Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.’”

Latest Evidence Reveals Trump and Russia Work Together

Recent government leaks reveal that Russians hacked voting machines in some U.S. states to revise the results. If true, Trump could be America’s first illegal president, but will the Republican Party that holds majorities in both Houses of Congress allow an investigation to find out the actual facts and not the alternative facts? The Intercept reports, “RUSSIAN MILITARY INTELLIGENCE executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last November’s presidential election, according to a highly classified intelligence report obtained by The Intercept.”

Donald Trump, the allegedly first illegal president of the United States, recently returned from the Middle East where he made a deal to sell more than $100-billion in weapons to Saudi Arabia, a country that has been linked to financial support for Al Qaeda and ISIS. Fifteen of the 19 terrorists that took part in the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York City that brought down the World Trade Center came from Saudi Arabia, a country that is not on Trump’s list to ban Muslim immigrants (Syria, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Yemen and Somalia). People.com reports, “Of this list, zero fatal attacks were carried out by immigrants from the seven (the 7th country was Iraq but Trump later dropped it from the list) Muslim-majority countries targeted by the ban.”

Trump then flew to Europe where he alienated the European Union and NATO, America’s long-time and most trusted allies that are also all democracies.

It is obvious that the United States could not have a worse enemy than Donald Trump. Thanks to the Kremlin’s Agent Orange, that serial lying, fraud, and malignant narcissist in the White House, who Tweeted credit for the latest crisis, a country in the Middle East that hosts a large U.S. airbase with 10,000 American troops, the U.S. now stands on the brink of losing that base and possibly seeing a new war break out that will be fought between its own allies.

OZY News reports that “US Says Russian Hacking May Have Sparked Qatar Crisis”.

The FBI’s reportedly confirmed that a Qatari news site was hacked last month to plant a story falsely attributing inflammatory remarks to Qatar’s leader, prompting several other Gulf nations to sever diplomatic relations. Officials say Russian sources were behind the hack, attempting to destabilize the region.

While Foreign Policy Magazine (June 7, 2017) breaks this news: “Qatar fallout. Operations at the massive Al Udeid air base in Qatar, which houses over 10,000 U.S. military personnel, appear to be running as normal despite the harsh — and unexpected — economic blockade put in place this week by five other Gulf countries, and president Trump’s Tweeted approval of the move, in which he took credit for the action.

Will “Isolating America” and “Draining the (U.S. Constitution’s) Swamp” End the U.S. Dollar as the World’s Reserve Currency?

What would happen to the U.S. dollar if Trump and Bannon succeeded in “Draining the (U.S. Constitution’s) Swamp”?

Trump has never defined what he meant by “Draining the (U.S. Constitution’s) Swamp,” but his closest advisor Steven Bannon has. Bannon has said, “I’m a Leninist. Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal, too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”

The Lenin that Bannon referred to was Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known by the alias Lenin, who was a Russian communist revolutionary, politician, and political theorist.

And in the United States, the state is defined by the U.S. Constitution. That document is the law that guides America. To destroy the state means the end of that Constitution.

As long as the U.S. dollar is viewed as a stable currency, it will remain as the world’s reserve currency but trust in the United States is being quickly eroded by mentally ill, twitter fingers Donald Trump with advice from his handler, Leninist (Communist) Steve Bannon. But if Trump, and Bannon, causes the world to lose trust in the United States and that reserve status is lost, the results would be a major currency devaluation and a drastic standard of living adjustment down.  That could well be a catastrophe for the United States and for the nations that hold their wealth in American dollars.

What is Trump doing to lose trust in the United States?

Roger-Mark De Souza, writing for the Wilson Center, says, “A lack of U.S. government support for the Paris climate agreement will mean that the United States will further isolate itself from international collaboration and cooperation on multiple fronts. It will affect U.S. security, the provision of jobs; U.S. business operations, and U.S. diplomatic efforts. The agreement, because it has a broad basis of support, will continue with or without the United States.”

What else has Trump done to destroy America’s relationship with its long-time allies and friends around the world? Watch the videos to discover answers to this question.

Oil Price.com reports The Clock is Ticking On The U.S. Dollar As World’s Reserve Currency. “Nobody plans to give way as keeper of the supreme currency, so there is no schedule to follow and no way to know when the torch will be passed from the dollar to the Yuan … history has shown that the shift comes suddenly, usually in the heat or aftermath of war. … It should be clear now that the reserve currency status is neither a birthright nor a privilege that stays forever in one place, which means it isn’t a question of if China will replace the U.S. as title holder but when. … What should no longer be unthinkable is that the clock is ticking on America’s status as the holder of the reserve currency.”

“The demise of the dollar will also bring radical changes to the American lifestyle,” Victoria Crowmberg says. “When this economic tsunami hits America, it will make the 2008 recession and its aftermath look like no more than a slight bump in the road. It will bring very undesirable changes to the American lifestyle through:

  1. Massive inflation,
  2. High interest rates on mortgages and cars,
  3. Substantial increases in the cost of food, clothing, and gasoline and
  4. A much harder time financing its debt.

Right now, there is a huge demand for U.S. dollars and for U.S. government debt since countries around the world have to keep huge reserves of U.S. currency lying around for the sake of international trade but what if … the appetite for U.S. dollars and U.S. debt dried up dramatically? That is something to think about.”

What is Behind the Trickle-Down Corporate Civil Rights Movement of Our Time

The so-called “(corporate) Civil Rights Movement” of the 21st century and school choice are both subversive assaults on the U.S. Constitution that was written to protect the people from the government that is represented by the public sector: public schools, public police, public firefighters, public prisons, volunteer public military, elected representatives, medical care from the VA, Medicare, Social Security, and even tax collection by the IRS. If the IRS abuses people, then the people can go to their elected representatives and this is something the people have already done making it more difficult for the IRS to destroy people financially to the point of becoming homeless.

The U.S. Constitution was not written to protect the people from corporations worth more than many countries. These profit-driven monsters of business did not exist in the 18th century when the U.S. Constitution was written by America’s Founding Fathers.

The big brother that Orwell and other authors warned us about was never going to be a government guided by a document like the U.S. Constitution. The threat of a Big Brother is a private-sector corporation and/or a country ruled by a Putin or Trump.

The public sector and the U.S. Constitution stand in the way of the corporate Big Brothers. The swamp that the Malignant Narcissist in the White House wants to get rid of is that public sector that, like the earth’s wetlands, is important to reduce the impact of damage caused by the malicious greed of the few in the private sector.

Without a strong public sector and its elected representatives, there will be no force strong enough to stop the corporate abuse caused by those that worship at the church of avarice.

Reagan’s trickle down economic theory wasn’t new. Before the 16th Amendment was passed in 1913, trickledown economics was the economic system in the United States.

If anyone wants to know the result of living under a trickle down economic system, look at 1900 when 40-percent of the American people lived in poverty, children as young as seven could be sold into a form of indentured slavery, 7-percent graduated from high school and 3-percent from college.

Investopedia says, “Most of the taxes we pay today have been around for less than half of our country’s history. One of the oldest is the estate tax, which was enacted in 1797, but was then repealed and reinstituted over the years, often in response to the need to finance wars. The modern estate tax was implemented in 1916 and the gift tax came about in 1924. The federal income tax was enacted in 1913, and corporate income taxes were enacted slightly earlier, in 1909.”

As you see, before 1909, the United States already had a trickledown economic system where the 0.1 percent decided how much they’d drip on the other 99.9-percent. No one is alive today who lived during that era of trickle down pennies to the masses.

Our ancestors have already been there, done that, and fought their way out of that swamp of avarice deliberately filled with quicksand to trap the rest of us.

The Civil Rights movement of our time is where only corporations have rights and the people are to be invisible and silent except when they are out consuming, and then they must go into debt to the banks and corporations wearing a fake smile painted on their faces.

To Make America Great Again, Trump must return the United States to the 1960s.

In 1900, 40-percent of Americans lived in poverty, 7-percent graduated from high school, and 3-percent from college. Women were chattel. That means they belonged to a man: father, husband, brother, etc. Children as young as seven could be sold into a form of slavery called servitude and in some states that included legal prostitution.  Even in states where prostitution was illegal, few ever did anything to save those children sold into that life by their poor parents.

How educated is the United States today? In 2014, 90.83-percent of Americans had a high school diploma or GED, and 44.08 percent had an associate and/or bachelor’s degree.

Since Trump doesn’t read, he doesn’t know this or doesn’t care, and that there is no time in American history that we were greater than we were in the 1960s.

If we look at the chart in this Atlantic piece, we discover America was greatest between 1960-1970, the Civil Rights Era; and when labor union membership was at its highest.

In fact, “Middle-Class Decline Mirrors The Fall of Unions In One Chart” we discover that the middle class was best off at the high point of union membership in 1967.

Now imagine if Trump was a reader and he was actually educated and knew all this and his make “America Great Again” was to return the U.S. to the 1960s, but without a war like the one in Vietnam.

That will never happen, because the malignant narcissist in the White House links his presidency to America Being Great Again. Nothing else counts to Donald Trump. He thinks that once he was elected and sworn in, the United States was Great Again.

The Ransomware that Took Out My Desktop

The Ransomware that invaded my desktop was called Zeus.

Trend Micro says, “Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents or limits users from accessing their system, either by locking the system’s screen or by locking the users’ files unless a ransom is paid.” To learn how Ransomware arrives on a computer, click the link in this paragraph and read Trend Micro’s post.

The Ransomware that invaded my desktop on February 12, 2017 popped up on the right screen through Firefox and my g-mail account.

The invasion took place in stages.

I use three browsers: Explorer, Google Chrome, and Firefox and two are often running at the same time since I use two screens with my desktop. The left screen is used for Google Chrome and the right screen for Firefox.

My first attempt was to restore my system to an earlier date but there was no early date. I think Zeus got rid of that option because that has never happened before. Restore has always worked to deal with similar problems, but not this time.

Zeus took over my right screen on Sunday and flashed a loud message that I had to obey or else. It was noisy and irritating. To get rid of it, I deleted the Firefox browser from my computer.

I thought I’d defeated the threat, but I was wrong.

Google Chrome kept working and Zeus didn’t appear again.  It wasn’t until late Monday morning on February 13 that I couldn’t access any of the files stored on the desktop’s hard drive. Then the desktop stopped working.

I now know that Symantec.com offers a free removal tool for Zeus. “Our free tool will check if your computer is infected by Gameover Zeus and remove the Trojan if it’s found.” In fact, most if not all computer security programs like Norton offer some protection from Ransomware.

Zeus isn’t the only Ransomware out there, so beware.

The security program I was using at the time of the Zeus attack was Bitdefender and it had been offering me Ransomware protection for several weeks at no additional cost, but every time I attempted to accept it, I found the process too time-consuming and confusing, so I didn’t follow through. If it had been a simple and easy process, that ransomware protection would have been active.

Anyway, don’t do what I did. After I deleted Firefox from my desktop, I used Google Chrome and continued to use both of my screens through that one browser. I never saw the Zeus pop-up Ransomware screen again, but Zeus was still there hidden away in my operating system eating it.

On Tuesday, a friend recommended that I take my desktop to R Computer that another combat vet he knew, who has trust issues, swore by.

The R Computer tech said that there is no 100-percent protection from a computer virus like the Zeus Ransomware. Some security programs are just better than others.

The R Computer tech struggled valiantly through the rest of the week to get rid of Zeus and recover the desktop’s operating system, programs, and files, but there was no easy fix because the hard drive was also dead.

The stress from the Zeus virus must have shortened the harddrive’s lifespan.

Nothing lasts forever and hard drives have lifespans too. To find out if there is an average lifespan for hard drives, I turned to LifeHacker.com . Life Hacker says, “Any hard drive in active use is essentially a ticking bomb. Let’s be honest: It’s not a matter of if a hard drive fails, it’s a matter of when, and how lucky you’ll get postponing that as long as possible. If you’re really lucky, it’ll be after you’ve upgraded to a new one. If you’re unlucky, it’ll be in a matter of months or years, and when it does die, we can only hope you’ve made sure to back up your computer before it happens.”

As the week slipped by without a computer and internet access, I felt lost, but adjusted and started to read more from real books and go out more often. I even went on a 3-mile solo walk, something I seldom do since I prefer walking with a friend or a group. It didn’t take long before I realized that the internet and social media is an addiction that destroys life in the real world outside of cyberspace.

Planning to spend more time away from the computer, I wondered if there was a 12-step program to help. If you are interested, I Googled “cyber addiction” and found ITAA, Internet & Tech Addiction Anonymous that offers a 12-step program.

If it was only the internet and social media at stake, I might not be here writing this post, but I’m an author with an addiction for writing that I don’t want to get rid of, and my next book is going through final revisions before I send it off to an editor.  That’s why I bought the laptop last Friday that I’m now using.

I’m glad I’ve been backing up my files on a regular daily basis for more than a decade. 

My desktop is still in the shop. When it comes home, it will have a new solid-state hard drive (with a longer lifespan). and my programs and files will be on it ready for me to get started again.

I have two large 27-inch screens that have been sitting dark for a week, and the 15-inch screen on the new laptop is small in comparison. I admit it. The larger screens spoiled me.

The Latest Trump Twitter-Tantrum Alleges the Press Isn’t Covering Enough Terrorist Attacks

The world, except for Russia and North Korea, is concerned. The UK’s Independent reports, “More and more mental health experts are sharing their diagnoses to warn the public.”

The malignant narcissist President Littlefingers (this is the street name I gave him) Donald Trump’s latest Cry Wolf, the Sky is Falling, is that the media is ignoring attacks by Islamist militants in Europe. He acts like an infant in diapers crying for another piece of candy, another sip of soda, and when he doesn’t get what he wants, he gets angry and often Throws another Twitter Tantrum spewing more lies; more misinformation.

Foreign Policy Magazine said on February 7, 2017, the White House “released a list of 78 terrorist attacks it claimed were not widely reported. The list included the attacks in Paris, Nice, San Bernardino, Brussels, and Berlin that received massive, wall-to-wall coverage in print and broadcast media.”

The Daily Wire lists 101 of Trump’s Greatest Lies. “But there’s only one truly massive liar in this race: Donald Trump. When Politico attempted to measure how many lies Trump told over the course of 4.6 hours of speeches, they found that he lied, on average, once every five minutes. When Huffington Post catalogued his lies over the course of just one town hall event, they came up with 71 lies.”

And this is from the popular-vote losing President of the so-called free world. The biggest documented liar on the planet rants that the press is very dishonest.

Reuters, a European news service, reports, “Trump at one point cited attacks in the French cities of Paris and Nice, which were widely covered.”

During the election campaign, Littlefingers often claimed the election was rigged but if the won, it didn’t matter. The UK’s Daily Mail reported, He (Trump) joked about voter fraud and said it would be ‘okay’ for people to cheat because he might actually benefit.

During the election, the malignant narcissi said he wouldn’t lose his (deplorable, ignorant, racist, biased) supporters even if he shot someone dead in Times Square in front of thousands of witnesses.

When this tantrum-throwing toddler claimed the election was rigged, he was right.

There was widespread voter suppression of minorities in several Republican-dominated States. The Atlantic reported, “Trump’s ‘Voter Suppression Operation’ Targets Black Voters. Even as the Republican launches a purported African American outreach campaign 12-days before the election, his aides say their goal is to depress turnout in the bloc.”

The Republican Party helped. Think Progress reports, “Republicans were wildly successful at suppressing voters in 2016.”  … “Their systematic disenfranchisement was intentional and politically motivated. In the years leading up to 2016, Republican governors and state legislatures implemented new laws restricting when, where, and how people could vote — laws that disproportionately harmed studentsthe poor, and people of color. In several instances, lawmakers pushing such policies said explicitly that their goal was suppression of voters who favor the Democratic Party.”

Using the internet, an operation approved by Vladimir Putin, Russians tampered with the election by spreading gossip, rumors, and lies, to mislead as many American voters as possible. Reuters reports, “For Russia, U.S. election meddling claims strip Trump win of luster.” … “The belief, widely held in the West, that the Kremlin helped discredit Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by orchestrating embarrassing media leaks, has relegated U.S.-Russia relations to a post-Cold War low and stoked fears Russia will try to subvert French and German elections this year.”

In addition, the director of the FBI, a life-long conservative, released information on investigations of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails before those investigations were concluded. The FBI and police do not release information for ongoing investigations. This was a first. After it was too late, those investigations concluded there was nothing to take to court.

Media matters reports, “The recent FBI leaks about the bureau’s investigations surrounding Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton are “dangerous” for democracy and “unprecedented,” according to FBI historians and former agents who tell Media Matters that the leaks harm the FBI’s reputation and unfairly influence the presidential election.

Rewire says, “Our democracy is in danger. Within a day of taking office, President Donald Trump began spewing lies right and left on national television. He has threatened freedom of speech and of assembly by attacking both journalists and protesters. And he’s repeatedly and falsely claimed there was massive voter fraud in the national election, setting the stage for another round of voter restrictions. White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway calls the administration’s lies ‘alternative facts,’ but what we are really seeing is propaganda, conspiracy theories, and lies.”

The Republican Party holds the majority in both Houses of Congress and is doing little to nothing to safeguard the U.S. Constitution from its lying, con-man president who won an obviously rigged election that favored him.

Everything most of the people of United States want to believe in about their country is at risk. Everything!

Business Insider tells us the United States has 1,920 deployed nuclear warheads and another 5,380 warheads in storage ready to use. This malignant narcissist of a president always has his little fingers close to the button that launches those missiles.
