Every successful tyrant or dictator who ever lived learned how to

do this trick. You make up an enemy that doesn't exist and get everyone who is not "the enemy" to hate the enemy. And then you move the enemy around. First they are outside the country, and then eventually, when the dictator needs to marginalize the opposition, the enemy is suddenly inside the country.

It's the fascist playbook.

By the way, they actually do love Trump, or how he makes them feel. They love Trump because of how powerful and acknowledged Trump makes them feel. I'd recommend picking up a good book about the Third Reich, or The Cult of Trump by Steven Hassan. Until the Red Army was burning down their homes, Nazi supporters loved Hitler; they thought he was put there by God. In fact, some of them never stopped loving Hitler, even when Germany was rubble.

I wish to god some reporter would say something like this:

So, you didn't want people to panic, but you didn't mind if they died??


It seems like you'd rather people die than panic, is that right?

Graham was definitely a source for Fear, Woodward's first Trump book.

You can tell because Woodward recounts phone conversations between Graham and Trump, where only those two people were present, and also tells us what Graham was thinking.

A book that has really helped me understand this, because it is

fascinating and a question many people wrestle with at some point during their lives (questions about the nature of evil and human criminal behavior) is Alone with the Devil by forensic psychiatrist Dr. Ronald Markman. It's an old book but it stands the test of time, and it approaches this question from both the legal and psychiatric perspective.

Evil is what happens when a person with no conscience attempts to

gratify himself, build himself up and evade responsibility for his actions. Sometimes his motive is revenge, or to hurt people who don't like him, or a desperation to please people who he owes a favor or who he perceives to have equal or greater status (i.e., Putin, Kim, Erdogan).

Wait. So these stories are all wrong?

Bloomberg’s Gun Control Group Pours $15 Million Into Races in 8 States
The group, Everytown for Gun Safety, hopes to help Democrats flip three Senate seats, win control of state legislatures and lift Joe Biden to victory in Florida.


Mike Bloomberg plots spending blitz to support Joe Biden’s run for president

How Bloomberg’s Digital Army Is Still Fighting for Democrats
With expensive data and tech heavy hitters, Hawkfish is backing the former mayor’s promise to take on Donald Trump.


People are bringing it up because they want to know the cause.

Trump made the health of Hillary Clinton an issue in 2016, and he's trying to do it again now against Biden.

Meanwhile, Trump has given us reasons to be skeptical about the medical reports coming out from his doctor.

If his mobility issues are the result of a neurological event, progression or illness that impairs his cognitive function and judgment in addition to his mobility, that could clearly be disqualifying.

Trump couldn't even get bottled water right.

If this vaccine "works", it would be the first success in Trump's life, other than obtaining loans through fraud and successfully laundering Russian money. So I won't be betting my life on the miracle of a sudden Trump success, not with the CDC and FDA in such a compromised state.

If we have a choice, say, that includes the WHO's vaccine, or a vaccine from Europe, Canada or Israel, I might opt for one of those.

I don't think #2 would ever work.

Trump has done too many things that demonstrate he is aware he is breaking the law and attempting to conceal that fact; therefore, there is ample evidence of consciousness of guilt. Look at all the effort he's gone to to lowball real estate values for tax purposes, and then to exaggerate them to obtain loans, and then to keep those false values straight. The Mueller Report is filled with facts tending to point to his awareness of his own wrongdoing. He also has a pattern of delegating wrongdoing to others, to avoid implicating himself. Hiding, obstructing, blocking people from testifying to his wrongdoing, etc...

It's actually pretty hard nowadays to get a "diminished capacity" defense.

My heart isn't set on Trump going to prison, but I think there's a good chance some of these people will:

William Barr
Maybe Eric Trump

Sorry to keep coming back to transradial catheterization for stent placement

It just seems to fit. It's just a theory, but remember how after that first trip to Walter Reed his first few public appearances he did not move his right arm normally when speaking and gesticulating. He let it hang at his side or fixed it on the podium. Sorry to keep harping on this.

In the journal article below, look at figures 1 - 5, especially placement of the distal bands, then look again at the pattern of the possible bruising.
