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.

The Nightmare for Everyone on the Planet that some Clinical Psychologists call A Dream Come True

How dangerous is President Donald Trump? The answer is that he is very dangerous, and what does that mean?

Malignant Narcissism Described by Psychologia.com

“If you are hearing about malignant narcissism for the first time, you may be wondering how is that different from narcissistic personality disorder or simply narcissism. Isn’t narcissism malignant in itself? …

“Narcissistic personality disorder is a destructive preoccupation with one’s own personal adequacy, power and prestige. People with this disorder crave for admiration, have an unreasonably strong sense of entitlement and are often preoccupied with unrealistic fantasies of success, beauty and ideal love. Unlike malignant narcissism, narcissistic personality disorder is defined as a mental illness in DSM-V (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the Fifth Edition). …

“Campbells’ Psychiatric Dictionary defines malignant narcissism as a mix of narcissism, antisocial personality disorder, aggression and sadism. …

“the Journal of Psychoanalytic Psychology has described the film American Psycho as a screen illustration of malignant narcissism.”

Vanity Fair.com reports, “For mental-health professionals, Donald Trump is at once easily diagnosed but slightly confounding. ‘Remarkably narcissistic,’ said developmental psychologist Howard Gardner, a professor at Harvard Graduate School of Education. ‘Textbook narcissistic personality disorder,’ echoed clinical psychologist Ben Michaelis. ‘He’s so classic that I’m archiving video clips of him to use in workshops because there’s no better example of his characteristics,” said clinical psychologist George Simon, who conducts lectures and seminars on manipulative behavior. ‘Otherwise, I would have had to hire actors and write vignettes. He’s like a dream come true.’”

Officer.com shows us The Malignant Narcissist.

“Malignant narcissists seek omnipotence and total control, and will attempt to achieve those goals by any means. They will defy those in authority, challenge them, and attempt to demean them. Narcissists cast themselves as victims, justifying all of their feelings and actions. They blame all of their shortcomings on perceived enemies. …

“Malignant narcissists are predators who hunt easy prey. Being a predator puts the narcissist in the class of psychopathology; in fact all psychopaths are narcissists. Serial bullies, serial adulterers, gold-diggers, pedophiliac priests, rapists, child molesters, terrorists and serial killers are all examples of malignant narcissists. They prey on others simply for ego gratification. They are able to violate the rights of others because they are incapable of feeling empathy for anyone else. They tend to view others as objects or tools, to further exploit for their sense of entitlement. …

“There has been no real success in treating people with NPD. Those who commit the most heinous offenses are frequently repeat offenders (rapists, pedophiles, serial killers). There is no magic medicine to cure a personality disorder, and talk therapy isn’t the answer with predators.”

The Mind of Donald Trump

‘Malignant narcissism’: Donald Trump displays classic traits of mental illness, claim psychologists. More and more mental health experts are sharing their diagnoses to warn the public

Temperament Tantrum

Some say President Donald Trump’s personality isn’t just flawed, it’s dangerous

NOTE: This morning on another forum, I was accused of an ad hominem attack for calling Donald Trump by the street name I have given him, LittlefingersHowever, in some cases, ad hominem attacks can be non-fallacious; i.e., if the attack on the character of the person is directly tackling the argument itself. For example, if the truth of the argument relies on the truthfulness of the person making the argument—rather than known facts—then pointing out that the person has previously lied is not a fallacious argument.

The 45th President of the United States is a known conman, a fraud, a serial liar, an alleged serial sex offender, a malignant narcissist, and he has earned the street name of Littlefingers.

The Scorpion and Frog Fable Updated

A poisonous, lying, cheating con-man, known as Little Fingers, and an angry unemployed worker  mad at China for taking his job, even though it wasn’t China, it was a robot that replaced him, meet on the bank of a raging river, and Little Fingers, desperate to get across is afraid of the swift current, but he won’t admit it.

Little Fingers asks the miserable, angry worker to carry him across on his back.

The worker asks, “How do I know you aren’t lying to me? Everyone says you’re a liar.”

“Trust me,” Little Fingers says, “They are the liars, because I’m smarter than them. I never fail. If I sting you and you die, I will die too, and on the other side of the river, a job is waiting for you, and I’m the only one that knows where that job is.”

The worker is satisfied because of the promise, and they set out, but close to the opposite bank of the raging river Little Fingers stings the worker.

The worker feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has just enough time to gasp “Why?”

Little Fingers says, “It’s my nature,” and before the worker goes under, he jumps the few feet to shore and walks away with a swagger not bothering to look back as the workers goes under and drowns.

If Little Fingers had not made it across, he was doomed, because he owed the Russians money and they were blackmailing him for perverted sexual behavior captured on film that would ruin his solid gold plated reputation.

Where Does Donald Trump Find the Most Support?

According to 24/7 Wall St.com the 10 states with the Most Hate Groups are:

  1. Louisiana
  2. Virginia
  3. Kentucky
  4. Alabama
  5. South Carolina
  6. Tennessee
  7. New Jersey
  8. Idaho
  9. Arkansas
  10. Mississippi

Then there are the top 10 states with the most gun violence:

  1. Tennessee
  2. New Mexico
  3. Oklahoma
  4. Wyoming
  5. Arkansas
  6. Montana
  7. Alabama
  8. Mississippi
  9. Louisiana
  10. Alaska

How many of those states, according to Nate Silver’s Forecast on FiveThirtyEight.com (on 10-8 @ 9:46 a.m.) support Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton and what are the odds.

Only New Jersey (95.9 percent to 4.1 percent for Donald Trump), New Mexico (93 percent to 6.2 percent for Trump), and Virgina (90.1 percent to 9.1 percent for Trump) are forecast to support Hillary Clinton.

The rest of the top 10 most racist and gun violent states are all solidly behind Donald Trump helping explain why they support this racist, bully, misogynistic, serial liar, and fraud.

  1. Alaska (71.8 percent) and Mississippi (94.1 percent)
  2. Louisiana (96 percent) and Arkansas (98 percent)
  3. Mississippi (see 1st place) and Idaho (98.8 percent)
  4. Alabama (99.6 percent)
  5. Montana (98 percent) and Tennessee (96.3 percent)
  6. Arkansas (see 2nd place) and South Carolina (86.1 percent)
  7. Wyoming (98 percent) and Alabama (see 4th place)
  8. Oklahoma (99.3 percent) and Kentucky (96.6 percent)
  9. Both New Mexico and Virginia are forecast to support Hillary Clinton
  10. Tennessee (see 5th place) and Louisiana (see 2nd place)

What about the ten most uneducated states? For that answer I take you back to 24/7 WallSt.com.

Starting with last place:

  1. West Virginia (the forecast is 99.1 percent for Trump)
    49. Mississippi (the forecast is 95.1 percent for Trump)
    48. Arkansas (the forecast is 98 percent for Trump)
    47. Kentucky (the forecast is 96.6 percent for Trump)
    46. Louisiana (the forecast is 96 percent for Trump)
    45. Nevada (the forecast is 31.2 percent for Trump)
    44. Alabama (the forecast is 99.6 percent for Trump)
    43. Oklahoma (the forecast is 99.3 percent for Trump)
    42. Indiana (the forecast is 89.1 percent for Trump)
    41. Idaho (the forecast is 98.9 percent for Trump)

Now that you have these facts, what do you think the reason is that Trump has so much support in most of these top ten most violent, most racist and least educated states?

Don’t let your emotions decide who you will vote for in the 2016 Presidential Election

There is a question that every open-minded Hillary Clinton Hater should ask. How guilty is she of wrongdoing? To answer that I’m going to turn to a few fact check sites, but I’ve discovered that whenever a fact check site reports what someone doesn’t want to believe, they often publicly discredit that fact check site dismissing it as a valid source.

So, how accurate are fact check sites and are they really biased? If you have an open mind, here’s a site that checks the fact finders: So Who’s checking the fact-finders? We are

Of course, it goes without saying that liars and the fools that believe them, are going to hate these fact check sites so they will cast doubt if the rest of us let them get away with it.

On Snopes, I counted 32 allegations about the Clintons that were fact checked.

  • 20 of the Clinton allegations of wronging were labeled FALSE
  • 2 were marked as LEGENDS, a popular story regarded as historical but unauthenticated. This means there is no proof that it happened.
  • 3 of the allegations were UNDETERMINED, and that means undecided as in our lawsuit is still undetermined.
  • 3 were labeled TRUE (click the next link and discover what Snopes found was actually true)
  • 4 were MIXED, meaning they were partially true but have been exaggerated over time.

Then there’s the Politifact files on Clinton and Trump’s lies during the campaign.

Politifact found that Trump lies 86 percent of the time, and 55 percent of his statements were rated False and Pants on Fire. That rating came from 203 statements Trump has made. Clinton’s rating was based on 226 of her statements, and 50 percent were rated half true or worse. Only 14 percent were rated False and Pants on Fire.

In fact, I think every voter should judge Hillary Clinton/Tim Kaine versus Donald Trump/Mike Pence not based on myths, lies, rumors, anger, emotion, hate and misinformation, but on their records (what they actually say, write and do) through Vote Smart.com, and then pick the team that most closely represents their political beliefs.

Hillary Clinton

Tim Kaine

Donald Trump

Mike Pence

Vote Smart, using all the actual information on each candidate, and not any myths and/or allegations, makes it simple with Vote Easy (click link) to discover where each candidate stands based on what’s actually known about them. There is a Vote Easy for presidential candidates and for both Houses of Congress.  All you have to do is click on the tabs at the top of the screen — once you are on the Vote Smart page — to discover where each candidate stands on issues starting with Abortion to Social Security.

For instance, just for Abortion, Hillary is pro-choice, Gary Johnson is pro-choice, Jill Stein is pro-choice, and Donald Trump is Pro-Life. If voters followed what they think, then, according to Pew Research.org,  56 percent of U.S. adults should vote for a pro-choice candidate, but where a candidate stands on abortion shouldn’t be the only issue, because there is a lot more than just abortion to consider. There is also: the budget, crime, the economy, education, the environment, guns, health care, immigration, marriage, national security, and social security.

Since there is little or no political history for Donald Trump, I suggest reading these two sources about him to discover the real Donald Trump and not just what he says about how big his thing is and hands are, how great he is, how popular he is, and how smart his brain is.

First: The Mind of Donald Trump

“As a businessman, Donald Trump gained fame as a gambling czar rivaling his renown as a developer. But a close examination of his record in gaming reveals that while Trump profited richly, his stock and bondholders could hardly have fared worse … from its beginning as a public company, Trump Hotels struggled under a heavy debt load, which started at $494 million, and rose to $1.8 billion as Trump piled on more and more debt consolidating his empire under the public company. In the end, it was the excessive borrowings that proved the company’s undoing. Nonetheless, it never seemed to diminish Trump’s annual paycheck.”

Second: How Donald Trump Made Millions Off His biggest Business Failure

In addition, back in 2008, this piece ran about Hillary Clinton in Psychology Today:  Hillary Clinton: “Deranged Narcissist?” Labels as name-calling

“Narcissists do not listen. Hillary does, as many on the campaign trail have commented on.

“Narcissists lack empathy. Hillary does not. She spent her adult life, as she has said repeatedly, toiling on behalf of the working poor, on things like universal health care for those who lack the money to find coverage on their own. Let’s face it: narcissists are not big on public service. They serve themselves, they don’t serve others.

“Narcissists are supersensitive to criticism and prone to ‘narcissistic injury.’ Clinton’s the polar opposite. She gets up, brushes off, and moves on.”

Then there is this Character study of HRC out of Saint John’s University in Minnesota that offers a different perspective. You will have to decide if is biased or not.

It also helps to compare Hillary Clinton’s top 10 campaign promises to Donald Trump’s top 10.

The odds are that Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be the next president of the United States. Don’t allow your emotions to decide who you vote for or if you don’t vote at all.

The Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Chronicles or Days of Their Lives

Here’s what Foreign Policy Magazine Situation Report said this morning about the new Republican National Convention.

“Amid arena-wide chants calling for the jailing of Hillary Clinton and full-throated — if vague — criticisms of Obama-era foreign policy, the Republican National Convention kicked off in Cleveland on Monday night. The opening night featured a roster of disparate speakers ranging from minor 80s sitcom stars to former Navy SEALs, all making the same point: America is teetering on the precipice of chaos and a rapid slide into irrelevancy, and Hillary Clinton is to blame.”

Has the GOP morphed into a vigilante mob? What happened to innocent until proven guilty? What happened to sanity?

The Republicans have chaired many investigations trying to pin something on Bill and/or Hillary and they have failed every time. For Benghazi alone, the GOP chaired several investigations and spent millions and couldn’t prove that Clinton was responsible for what happened.  If you don’t believe this, then check the Benghazi Research Center (BRC).

Then there was Whitewater, a failed real—estate investment Bill and Hillary made in 1978. Although no inquiry has ever produced evidence of wronging, these investigations ultimately led to President Bill Clinton’s impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice. The only thing the GOP could pin on President Bill Clinton was an alleged sexual affair with Monica Lewinsky, but she was a consenting adult and how was this anyone else’s business?

I guess sane people with open minds already know the answers to these questions.

The Atlantic reported, “Since the Clintons have a long history of controversies, there are any number of past scandals that continue to float around, especially in conservative media: Whitewater. Troopergate. Paula Jones. Monica Lewinsky. Travelgate. Vince Foster’s suicide. Juanita Broaddrick.”

Then there is Donald Trump, and the Daily News reports that ‘Art of the Deal’, co-author Tony Schwartz calls Trump a ‘sociopath’ in scathing tell-all: ‘I put lipstick on a pig’, he says.

If you want to learn more about Donald Trump, I suggest reading A Psychologist Analyzes Donald Trump’s Personality, A neuroscientist explains: Trump has a mental disorder that makes him a dangerous world leader, and The Personality of Donald Trump.

If that isn’t enough to convince you that Donald Trump isn’t fit to be president of the United States, then there is A Brief History of Donald Trump’s Get-Rich Schemes, A Brief History of Donald Trump’s Love Affair With Saddam Hussein, and there is this video revealing The Real Story Behind Donald Trump’s Wealth even though Trump has repeatedly lied that he has never failed at anything.

Please people, can we get rid of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and start over again without them running for president or any elected office ever?

Donald Trump is 70 and Hillary Clinton is 68. Let’s send these two to an isolated, remote, uninhabited island without electricity somewhere in the Arctic/Antarctic and force them to live together in one, one-room cabin without running water for one full year. Their one luxury will be an outhouse one hundred yards from the 100 square foot cabin that has one pot-bellied cast iron stove for warmth — the stove can be in the outhouse or the cabin, their choice.  For sleep, there will be one bunk bed like we see in prisons with an upper and lower bunk. It would be interesting to watch when they decide who gets the upper bunk. They also get 1 chess set, no books and no links of any kind to the outside world.

Donald and Hillary will be supplied with enough oatmeal, spam and toilet paper to survive the entire year without any resupply missions or contact with the outside world. Too bad we end up with a choice between two shady characters with bad reputations. Who is responsible for this choice — let’s hang them without a trial?
