Trump’s advisers fear that he is “unraveling”

Filed under: Trump — furtherglory @ 12:49 pm

You can read a recent news article about Trump at https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/10/donald-trump-is-unraveling-white-house-advisers

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.”

The conversation among some of the president’s longtime confidantes, along with the character of some of the leaks emerging from the White House has shifted. There’s a new level of concern. NBC News published a report that Trump shocked his national security team when he called for a nearly tenfold increase in the country’s nuclear arsenal during a briefing this summer. One Trump adviser confirmed to me it was after this meeting disbanded that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Trump a “moron.”

In recent days, I spoke with a half dozen prominent Republicans and Trump advisers, and they all describe a White House in crisis as advisers struggle to contain a president who seems to be increasingly unfocused and consumed by dark moods. Trump’s ire is being fueled by his stalled legislative agenda and, to a surprising degree, by his decision last month to back the losing candidate Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primary. “Alabama was a huge blow to his psyche,” a person close to Trump said. “He saw the cult of personality was broken.”

End quote from news article

What does this mean? Has Trump gone completely bat crap crazy? This is not the first news article which has questioned his sanity. I recall that I have previously blogged about rumors of Trump’s mental illness. .

Which one has the higher IQ — Trump or Tillerson

Filed under: Trump — furtherglory @ 6:19 pm

You can read about the battle of the IQs at http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/in-the-know/354718-mensa-offers-to-host-iq-test-for-trump-and-tillerson

My money is on Trump to get the higher score on an IQ test.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Bring on the IQ test — Mensa says it’s willing to host President Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a battle of the brains.

In an interview with Forbes published Tuesday, Trump suggested he and Tillerson — who allegedly once called the commander in chief a “moron” — go head-to-head in an intelligence quotient showdown. The State Department has denied Tillerson ever made the comments.

“I think it’s fake news,” Trump told the magazine of Tillerson’s “moron” remark, “but if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win.”

End quote

If Hillary Clinton were included in this contest, she would score the highest. Trump would be in second place and Tillerson would score the lowest — in my humble opinion.

Russia used fake Facebook accounts to undermine Hillary’s campaign

Filed under: Trump — furtherglory @ 11:19 am

Finally, it is revealed how the Russians helped Trump to win the election.

You can read about it in this news article: https://thinkprogress.org/russia-facebook-clinton-campaign-d6d76b2a2e82/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

By meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Moscow appears to have initially aimed to plant Donald Trump in the White House. But as signs toward the end of the campaign pointed to Trump’s defeat, actors in Russia were primarily trying to hamstring Hillary Clinton’s perceived ascension to the presidency. That theme ThinkProgress detailed earlier this week by analyzing Russia’s creation of hundreds of fake Facebook accounts, pumped via ads and promotion into Americans’ feeds.

We’ve also learned that certain pages called for followers to vote for Jill Stein and Bernie Sanders, as opposed to Clinton — although those posts, especially as pertaining to Sanders, haven’t yet been revealed publicly.

Both the “Secured Borders” and “Beyond Patriotic” pages revealed by the Daily Beast were steeped in anti-Clinton rhetoric, with the latter organizing on-the-ground rallies that featured Americans chanting to “lock her up!” In one example from “Secured Borders,” the authors — referring to Clinton as “Killary” — piggy-backed on the outrage over Clinton’s comments that certain Trump supporters are “deplorables.” As the post wrote, “If Killary thinks that being American, loving your country and be concerned about ours and our children’s future is deplorable, then hell yeah count me in in that basket! [sic]”

End quote

Based on this, I think that Trump should be kicked to the curb and Hillary should be installed as the President. The public should be completely informed about the reason for this.

Rush Limbaugh is back in the news (updated)

Filed under: California, Trump — furtherglory @ 4:32 pm

You can read about Rush Limbaugh in this recent news article: https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/jeffrey-lord/2017/09/30/rush-limbaugh-media-have-corrupted-liberalism

and in this news article: http://www.pressofficialcomment.com/jay-z-apologizes-to-his-wife-beyonce-for-a-side-jump/?gclid=CO7b9pWq0NYCFQORfgodqPQF-Q

The first thing that you should know about Rush Limbaugh is that he does not live in Rio Linda, California. Rio Linda is a small town out in the boon docks, close to Sacramento, and the name of the town is a joke. People who live in Rio Linda are thought to be backward and stupid.  So that’s why does he live there?.

Rush Limbo was not born in Rio Linda. Why should he care? Rush doesn’t care that people make fun of Rio Linda.

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Rush Limbaugh made a rare television appearance this past week, returning to Fox for a sit-down with Sean Hannity to kick-off the latter’s return to his starring 9pm hour. Rush did not disappoint.

While he [Limbaugh] said all kinds of things that doubtless resonated with the Fox audience, in terms of the media, he zeroed in on exactly the complaint of so many.  Fox wrote it up this way:

Begin quote from Fox news:

“He [Rush Limbaugh] said the mainstream media has now been ‘corrupted by liberalism’ and is no longer delivering the news to Americans like they used to.

‘They don’t do the news. There is no news. There is the advancement of the Democrat Party agenda, which is ‘get rid of Trump,’ and they are totally devoted to it,’ Limbaugh said.”

Not to put too fine a point on it? Bingo!

End quote

The following quote is also from the news article:

Begin quote

Here’s Rush from the MRC dinner getting it absolutely on point in sobering fashion:

You saw these clips tonight, it’s stupid. And the problem is, these people have influence….They believe it. They’re killing everything they touch, they’re corrupting everything they touch, and they’re destroying it. We laugh at it because we need the relief, but they believe it. And they’re dead serious, they’re dead wrong, they’re dead stupid, they’re brain dead, and they are a problem. And they’ve got to be – in the arena of ideas – they have got to be beaten.

Exactly.

This is indeed no laughing matter. Every single day the media is pounding away at not just President Trump but any and everything about America. And in doing this it leads more than enough people who should know better down a garden path of the sheerest ignorance.

What is the difference between an e-mail server and an e-mail account?

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 3:17 pm

Today I picked up my reserved copy of Hillary’s book at the book store. I rushed home and immediately started reading it.

Instead of starting on page 1, I went to the index and found the chapter entitled “Those Damn Emails”. [Those damned E-mails]

But first I looked up the definition of an e-mail server and found this:

Begin quote

An e-mail server is a computer running software that manages the storage and routing of e-mail.

When you send e-mail from your PC or from Yahoo, it is collected by a mail server or router for distribution across the network.

E-mail is exchanged between mail servers and routers using a protocol called ESMTP (Extended Simple Mail Transfer Protocol).

Once the e-mail arrives at the e-mail server you
get your e-mail from, it is indexed into your address’ storage and waits for you to retrieve it. The e-mail server allows you (actually, your e-mail account) to receive e-mail even if your computer is not on the network.

Then, you retrieve your e-mail from the server. If you are using Yahoo! Mail, the mail sits on the e-mail server and is displayed to you using the Web-based mail reader. If you use another e-mail program, it could be retrieved from the server via the POP3 protocol or the IMAP protocol and transferred to your e-mail reader. Microsoft Exchange e-mail servers have their own protocols.

End quote

The following quote is from Hillary’s book – the chapter entitled “Those Damn Emails”

Begin quote:

Imagine you are a kid sitting in history class thirty years from now learning about the 2016 presidential election, which brought to power the least experienced, least knowledgeable, least competent President our country has ever had. Something must have gone horribly wrong you think. Then you hear that one issue dominated press coverage and public debate in that race more than any other. “Climate change?” you ask. Health care? “No, your teacher responds, “Emails.”

End quote

What Hillary fails to explain in her book is that when you have a private e-mail server, you can see where your e-mail is really coming from and not from where it is pretending to come from.

Many years ago, when I was a recruiter, specializing in recruiting engineers for my client companies, I would get e-mail from someone claiming to be Joe Blow, but I could see that the e-mail was really coming from another recruiter who was trying to steal my client companies away from me. That’s the reason for having a private e-mail server — you know where your e-mail is really coming from.

Here is the definition of an e-mail server:

[An e-mail server is] A computer (and/or the software running on that computer) that:

(1) Stores email addressed to the users of that system as they arrive until such time as the user retrieves/deletes it

(2) Processes outbound messages and sends them out for delivery

You can read another review of Hillary’s book at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-what-happened-review_us_59c16721e4b0186c22066d72

The following quote is from the review of Hillary’s book:

Begin quote

In the end, Clinton simply does not have the right tools to tell her own story. Many critics are upset that she spends her book blaming her defeat on Bernie Sanders and James Comey and Russia and everyone but herself. What did you expect? Her book could never have been anything else. This is crystallized in one minor but telling detail: Occasionally, she refers to a “now” in which the reader reads, a “now” that’s explicitly identified as late 2017. What Happened is not meant to last; it’s not meant to be pored over for years to come. It exists in the provisional present of politics. It’s a campaign book, written after the fact.

End quote

Update 6 pm today

After reading more of Hillary’s book, I now understand her. Hillary is a rich person who lives in a rich community and hob nobs with famous rich people. She is completely out of touch with the common people.

Look at that face!!!

Filed under: Trump — furtherglory @ 9:43 am

The face of Donald Trump

The first words spoken at the most recent convention to select the candidates for the presidential election were spoken by Donald Trump. The Donald was the first person to walk onto the stage at the convention. In his hateful remark, Trump was referring to Carly Fiorina, a Hewlett Packard executive, who had been chosen, by vote, to be the first speaker at the convention. As time goes on, the face of Donald Trump gets worse and worse.

Trump has already won the prize for the ugliest person in the world. How much worse can it get!

Is Donald Trump off his rocker?

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 3:02 pm

To put it in other words: Is Trump bat crap crazy?

Recent photo of Donald Trump

According to this recent news article, Trump is mentally ill: http://www.dailybreeze.com/opinion/20170916/diagnosing-trump-an-unhinged-case-study

Begin quote from news article:

Only seven months into his puzzling presidency, Donald Trump has accomplished an odd achievement: He’s made Sigmund Freud relevant again. Although the father of psychoanalysis is no longer fashionable, the Freudian concept of psychological projection is alive and well.

“I think he’s crazy,” said Sen. Jack Reed, a Rhode Island Democrat, speaking into an open microphone about Trump. J. Brien Comey, father of fired FBI director Jim Comey, thinks Trump belongs “in an institution.” Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin has questioned the president’s “mental stability.”

These aren’t isolated examples. Many prominent liberals, conservatives, moderates, and libertarians have concluded that the president is off his rocker. The tangible evidence for that proposition is thin, and Trump seems to be enjoying himself more and more. Maybe we’re all just projecting.

“Trump Derangement Syndrome” is the phrase used by those sympathetic to the president to explain liberals’ hair-on-fire response to anything Trump says or does. TDS is also an occupational hazard of being a member of the Republican establishment or a movement conservative who cares about such trite concepts as political principles.

This became clear again last week in the hysteria over Trump’s approach to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In response to the administration’s original announcement rescinding DACA, liberals came unglued. Not content to call the decision dumb and racist, which they did, they played the sanity card. “It is lunacy,” opined Minnesota’s Democratic governor, Mark Dayton. The president, added HBO comedic pundit John Oliver, is out of his mind. “Utter insanity,” proclaimed Susan Hay, a co-ounder of a Florida-based pro-immigrant and refugee nonprofit.

That was then. A few days later, after dining on Chinese food (you can’t make this stuff up) at the White House with Democratic congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, Trump reversed field on DACA. In the real world, such a development is called processing new information. In modern U.S. politics, it’s considered treason — or insanity. This time, it was conservatives who melted down. Ann Coulter pronounced it the death of the GOP brand; Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King, an immigration hardliner, claimed it would “crack” Trump’s core base of support; various commenters on conservative news sites theorized that Trump had been taken over by aliens. Not the illegal kind, the kind from outer space.

Since before Trump’s inauguration, Democratic attorneys in the nation’s capital have contemplated replacing Trump under the 25th Amendment’s requirement that the president is able to “discharge the powers and duties of his office,” i.e., impeaching him on grounds he’s intellectually incapacitated.

End quote

Trump has many supporters who love him. They don’t think that he is insane.

Donald Trump admired Hitler’s speeches, according to a news article

Filed under: Trump, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 3:45 pm

A photo of Adolf Hitler in the early days; Heinrich Himmler is shown behind him.

Donald Trump admires Hitler’s speeches — so it is said.

Trump kept a copy of Hitler’s speeches near his bed, according to a news article which you can read in full at http://www.theroot.com/trump-kept-a-copy-of-hitlers-speeches-near-hes-bed-rep-1792639949

On my website, I wrote about the speeches that Hitler made:

There is an old saying that Hitler was more loved by more people than any other man in history.  Trump is very wise to study Hitler’s speeches.

Photo of Trump shows him giving a Nazi salute

Filed under: Germany, Holocaust, Trump — furtherglory @ 3:02 pm

A person holds a copy of the ‘Stern’ news magazine in Berlin, Germany, Friday, Aug. 25, 2017 showing U.S. President Donald Trump draped in the American flag while giving a stiff-armed Nazi salute.

The magazine article says “Germans must surely know that by misappropriating” Nazi symbols “they belittle and becloud” past crimes.

The following quote is from the news article which shows the photo above:

Begin quote

This week’s cover of a popular German news magazine depicting U.S. President Donald Trump draped in the American flag while giving a stiff-armed Nazi salute is drawing sharp criticism from a prominent Jewish group.

Stern magazine’s illustration is part of a cover story headlined “Sein Kampf,” which translates as “His Struggle” and is a play on Adolf Hitler’s infamous “Mein Kampf.”

Los Angeles-based Simon Wiesenthal Center says it’s been “outspoken in criticizing President Trump for failing to make a distinction between Nazis and KKK protesters and those who opposed them.” But it said “the depiction of the president as a latter-day Hitler by a major German publication is untrue and beyond the pale.”

Hillary says “my skin crawled” when she first met Donald Trump

Filed under: Trump — furtherglory @ 10:13 am

images.jpg   As I am writing this, I can hear Hillary speaking on TV, as she talks about her first debate with Donald Trump.

You can read about it here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/08/23/hillary-clinton-said-her-skin-crawled-when-donald-trump-stood-behind-her-on-debate-stage/?utm_term=.9e86412b8763

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

“This is not okay, I thought,” Clinton said, reading from her book. “It was the second presidential debate and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces.

“It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled. It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, ‘Well, what would you do?’ Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, ‘Back up, you creep. Get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women, but you can’t intimidate me, so back up.’”

End quote

The news article continues with this quote:

Begin quote

In the post-debate spin room, Clinton surrogates accused Trump of “menacingly stalking” the Democratic nominee. Two body language experts analyzed the debate and concluded Trump was trying to assert his power by roaming the stage while Clinton spoke.

“Trump’s constant pacing and restless movements around the stage attracted attention from Hillary’s words, and visually disrespected her physical presence on the stage, as in ‘I am big, you are small,’ ” David Givens, director of the Center for Nonverbal Studies, a nonprofit research center in Spokane, Wash., told The Post then.

End quote

I went to bed before the final results of the election were announced; I was sure that Hillary had won. The next morning I was completely and totally shocked to hear that “bat crap crazy Trump” had somehow won.

What happened? The first news reports hinted that the Russians were somehow involved.
