THE PRESIDENT
Our President suffers from a myriad of dangerous ailments that I have personally observed on television and read about the symptoms of during the past 45+ years. My observations from the early 1980’s where TRump’s lawyers found a way for him to “steal” his two bankrupted Atlantic City Casino employees’ retirement funds and stash the money in his own coffers to his “grab em’ by the pussy and get away with it because I’m a famous celebrity” bus ride. Eventually, we may actually see the tape recordings from The Apprentice, where it is rumored that he often displayed “ass-hole-of-the-day” tendencies. Today, He wanders about aimlessly, Tilts forward at an odd angle. His eyes are dilated during speeches, even under bright lights. This list is LONG.

TRUMP SUFFERS FROM MANY ILLNESSES

Monday, February 13th, 2017 – New York Times

37 Mental Health Experts Sign A Letter Warning Of Trump’s “Grave Emotional Instability”.

37 psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers said in a joint letter published in the New York Times dated Monday that President Donald Trump is unfit to be president.

“To the Editor:

Charles M. Blow of the New York Times on February 9th, 2017 describes Donald Trump’s constant need “to grind the opposition underfoot.” As mental health professionals, we share Mr. Blow’s concern.

Silence from the country’s mental health organizations has been due to a self-imposed dictum about evaluating public figures (the American Psychiatric Association’s 1973 Goldwater Rule). But this silence has resulted in a failure to lend our expertise to worried journalists and members of Congress at this critical time. We fear that too much is at stake to be silent any longer. Mr. Trump’s speech and actions demonstrate an inability to tolerate views different from his own, leading to rage reactions. His words and behavior suggest a profound inability to empathize. Individuals with these traits distort reality to suit their psychological state, attacking facts and those who convey them (journalists, scientists). In a powerful leader, these attacks are likely to increase, as his personal myth of greatness appears to be confirmed. We believe that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trump’s speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president.”

ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

There are many causes of simple memory loss (Dementia), including vitamin B12 deficiency, and brain, thyroid, kidney, or liver disorders. However, having several of those symptoms at the same time could also be a sign of Alzheimer’s disease. SERIOUS memory loss and confusion are not a “normal” part of the ageing process. Extreme agitation and mood swings: It’s common for someone suffering from Alzheimer’s to seem anxious or agitated. They may constantly move around and pace, get upset in certain places, or become fixated on specific details. A person with Alzheimer’s  will begin to make decisions that seem silly, irresponsible, or even inappropriate. They will likely have difficulty with abstract thinking as the disease progresses, making numbers and money particularly troublesome. They may have trouble concentrating and find that fairly basic activities take them longer to do than before. Misplacing things. Finding car keys in the freezer, the remote in a sock drawer, or routinely discovering other “missing” items in strange spots is usually a strong indicator that they may be suffering from Alzheimer’s. Disorientation as to time and place, such as forgetting where you live, getting easily lost, and losing track of dates, seasons, and the passage of time is a common experience for individuals with Alzheimer’s. As it further progresses, a person’s language and communication skills begin to diminish. He or she may stop mid-conversation and not know how or the reason to continue. Wandering: Unfortunately, about 60% of people with Alzheimer’s have a tendency to walk off, wander aimlessly, and become lost, often repeatedly.

While I am not a Doctor, and the majority of Doctors seeking a steady source of income, will state that it is “impossible to diagnose illness from afar”. However; I have discovered that I have the uncanny ability to diagnose whether or not the Whitetail Deer wandering through my front yard has a broken leg or not – I CAN observe things. People are the much same: My Father suffered from diagnosed early onset Alzheimer’s Disease until his final death as a unmoving vegetable. I could tell by looking at him that “The lights are on, but nobody’s home” - I have personally viewed the disease and the symptom changes it exhibits as it progresses. I have a stepson that suffers from Sociopathy. Over the years my wife and I have observed him exhibiting, each and every one of the “textbook” signs that a Sociopath exhibits. Basically, an uncaring, selfish, self-centered lout, standing around with his “alms for the poor” hand extended. His older brother is a completely normal 26 year old adult man. When I was a member of the Corporate world, the company sent we managers through multitudes of different educational courses taught by different independent contractors. We utilized the techniques learned in these classes to quickly analyse and placate a customer in order to give him or her what he was “REALLY” looking for. Even to the point of altering what he actually thought he wanted. I don’t know if TRump has taken any of these various courses or not, but, I have observed him utilizing, and at times even talking about, several of those analysis techniques. He has mentioned “body Language”, he spouts “propaganda messaging” by using cognitive bias to instil fear in an audience by name-calling in others: i.e. “crooked Hillary, “little Marco” “Sleepy Joe” etc., etc. Anyway, it is INDEED possible to analyse and diagnose a human being on the fly through simple observation and analysis.

WHAT I KNOW ABOUT ALZHEIMER’S

My Father was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s Disease at the very young age of 45. At that time I was in my freshman year in college. As the disease progressed, he “forgot” who my sister (the youngest) was, then my youngest brother, middle brother, and later me as his oldest son. Eventually, he forgot my mother and began calling her “The Maid” in order to justify to himself her constant presence in the household.

Early on as the disease progressed, we noticed that his speech patterns became halting. I feel that it was mostly due to him absently forgetting his train of thought. At first, a small paragraph would be followed by another that was typically unrelated to the first. Degrading as time passed to sentences that were unrelated to each other. He would say a few words, pause to think a bit and then complete the sentence. Eventually he realized he was pausing and at that point, he began to insert mildly related words in order to continue on smoothly, speaking in a kind of word salad. He watched a lot of television because while doing so, he did not have to think or interact with other people. He would repeat parrot-like, the things he had seen that day on TV.  He also had an inability to reason: My brother worked the midnight shift at GM, arriving home at 6:00 AM. Dad would wake him up around 9 AM, screaming “do you intend to spend all day in bed? Not in my house”. He could instantly switch from being almost docile to extreme anger and just as quickly back again. I found out that after he had passed that the anger had progressed to the point that my mother began locking herself in her bedroom after dark out of fear for her life. He used to aimlessly wander through the house at all hours of the night. Eventually her fear for her own life forced Mom to FINALLY commit him to a nursing care facility. SHE WAITED TOO LONG TO DO IT. The stresses in her life caused by him aged my mother GREATLY,  she was never the same. I also believe that the extreme stresses he placed her under caused the cancer that eventually took her life early.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE ANYONE WE KNOW?

Why does TRump constantly say things that are EASILY proven as untrue, even by a relative idiot such as myself?

Why does TRump tend to speak in relatively unrelated word salad paragraphs?

Why does TRump seemingly not remember the things he has said previously?

Why does TRump not remember all of the other atrocities committed by Assad – WTF, the babies gassed in 2013 didn’t count to TRump?

Why does TRump maintain and use an “enemies” list?

Why does Melania not want to live where he is - Even in the same room in the White House?

Why does son Barron seem to avoid him at all costs?

Why are TRump’s older children the only people he can trust?

THIS LIST IS NEARLY ENDLESS………

I TRULY BELIEVE THIS MAN IS SUFFERING FROM EARLY ONSET ALZHEIMER’S AND WE HAVE UNFORTUNATELY ELECTED HIM TO BE OUR PRESIDENT AND REPRESENT US ON THE WORLD STAGE!

Monday – July 3rd, 2017:

According to The Blaze, President T-Rump got “lost” upon his arrival back at Andrews Air Force Base and had to be “redirected” back to his limousine by the Secret Service. Watch the 1:24 second YouTube Video from Fox 10 News in Phoenix Arizona & decide for yourself what you are seeing! This is EXACTLY the type of thing that my Father did whenever my Mother drove him into town – He would aimlessly wander past the car with her sitting in it. The symptom actually worsened if he was tired.

MISOGYNISTIC HATRED

Misogyny as defined by Wikipedia is the hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women or girls. Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including social exclusion, sex discrimination, hostility, androcentrism, patriarchy, male privilege, belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification. Misogyny can occasionally be found within sacred texts of religions and mythologies, and various influential Western philosophers and thinkers have been described as misogynistic.

His old able to “grab em’ by the pussy and get away with it because he’s a rich celebrity” fits into this distressing definition quite handily.

NOTABLE QUOTES ABOUT MISOGYNY

Bette Davis: “When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch.” 

John Berger: “You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for your own pleasure.” 

Samuel Johnson: “Men know that women are an overmatch for them, and therefore they choose the weakest or the most ignorant. If they did not think so, they never could be afraid of women knowing as much as themselves.” 

Jesse Dangerously: “Both porn and religion distort a person’s perspectives on women.” 

Virginia Woolf: “One does not like to be told that one is naturally the inferior of a little man” 

Sarah B. Pomeroy: “Misogyny was born of fear of women.” 

AND LAST, BUT NOT LEAST……

Aaron Blake of the Washington Post: “Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she takes “absolute personal responsibility” for her 2016 loss. But she doesn’t, really.”

TRump has often proven beyond any reasonable doubt that he suffers from rampant misogyny. From his 3 marriages with “trophy wives”, all eventually discarded to the trash heap when he found another more fascinating one while still married to the previous one. To his “Grab ‘em by the pussy” statement on the Access Hollywood bus. And EVERYTHING ELSE in between.

A NARCISSISTIC PERSONALTY

The below list of traits, makes up the classic psychiatric definition of a Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

TRump is relatively unique even among Narcissists in the fact that he, at one time or another each and every week, strongly exhibits ALL 16 of the below listed traits. Most narcissistic personalities suffer from only a few of those symptoms.

If you have narcissistic personality disorder, you may come across as conceited, boastful or pretentious. You often monopolize conversations. You may belittle or look down on people you perceive as inferior. You may feel a sense of entitlement — and when you don't receive special treatment, you may become impatient or angry. You may insist on having "the best" of everything — for instance, the best car, athletic club or medical care. At the same time, you have trouble handling anything that may be perceived as criticism. The President is utterly unable to handle being booed and because of this, he will SELDOM appear in public anywhere other than in a campaign style rally where only his adoring fans are granted admission. He tries to avoid travel to foreign countries that allow their citizens the freedom to protest. He regularly walks out of interviews where he deems that the questions are “unfair”.

THE TELLING SYMPTOMS DEFINED

1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance. Their reputation means EVERYTHING to them.

2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.

3. 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). Sincerely believing themselves to be “above the law” in every possible way.

4. Requires excessive admiration, regularly fishing for compliments, and is highly susceptible to flattery. A problem usually indicative of a neglected childhood.

5. Has a sense of entitlement. You and others “owe” them.

6. Is interpersonally exploitative, shamelessly taking advantage of others in order to achieve their own ends.

7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling or unable to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others. They literally exist purely to serve their own grandiose needs.

8. Is often envious of others and at the same time believes that others are envious of him or her.

9. Shows arrogant, abusive behaviors or attitudes towards others. Most are terrible, negative gossips.

10. Are highly reactive to criticism. Or anything they assume or interpret as negatively evaluating their personality or performance.

11. Have low self-esteem, It’s not uncommon for them to rise to positions of power and influence, as well as amass a fortune.

12. Can be inordinately self-righteous and defensive. Needing so much to protect their overblown but fragile ego, their ever-vigilant defense system can be extraordinarily easy to set off.

13. React to contrary viewpoints with anger or rage.

14. Has a major problem with authority. Feels that those people are “less intelligent” that they are.

15. Dominates each conversations and constantly steers conversations to eventually be about them.

16. Collect friends that idolize them. Surrounding themselves with acolytes or minions that will provide positive feedback. As soon as they don’t they are ostracised.

TRump has often exhibited ALL 16 of the above symptoms or traits.

A SOCIOPATHIC PERSONALITY

TRump’s lifelong pattern of enriching himself no matter what the consequences or harm caused to others is the classic definition of a Sociopath.

Steve Bressert, Ph.D. of Horizon Family Solutions discusses the symptoms:

Antisocial Personality Disorder is a disorder that is characterized by a long-standing pattern of disregard for other people’s rights, often crossing the line and violating those rights. A person with APD often feels little or no empathy toward other people, and doesn’t see the problem in bending or breaking the law for their own needs or wants. The disorder usually begins in childhood or as a teen and continues into a person’s adult life. APD is often referred to as Psychopathy or Sociopathy in popular culture. However, neither psychopathy nor Sociopathy are recognized professional labels used for diagnosis. Individuals with APD frequently lack empathy and tend to be callous, cynical, and contemptuous of the feelings, rights, and sufferings of others. They may have an inflated and arrogant self-appraisal (e.g., feel that ordinary work is beneath them or lack a realistic concern about their current problems or their future) and may be excessively opinionated, self- assured, or cocky. They may display a glib, superficial charm and can be quite voluble and verbally facile (e.g., using technical terms or jargon that might impress someone who is unfamiliar with the topic). Lack of empathy, inflated self-appraisal, and superficial charm are features that have been commonly included in traditional conceptions of psychopathy and may be particularly distinguishing of APD in prison or forensic settings where criminal, delinquent, or aggressive acts are likely to be non-specific. These individuals may also be irresponsible and exploitative in their sexual relationships.

A personality disorder is an enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates from the norm of the individual’s culture. The pattern is seen in two or more of the following areas: cognition; affect; interpersonal functioning; or impulse control. The enduring pattern is inflexible and pervasive across a broad range of personal and social situations. It typically leads to significant distress or impairment in social, work or other areas of functioning. The pattern is stable and of long duration, and its onset can be traced back to early adulthood or adolescence.

Psychologists are quick to point out that some empathetic people can act as if they are Sociopaths, for many purposes: to appear tough, to get people to accept them or to acquiesce, or (?) to get votes. That’s why psychologists are reluctant to make distant diagnoses. On the other hand, the public does this frequently; we all have our quick analyses of people that we use to make our own decisions; we can’t help but do this, and it is probably a necessary way to function in a complex world. So you will hear many strongly put arguments about Donald Trump, on both sides:

Is Donald Trump a Psychopath, Sociopath, Narcissist or suffering from some other disorder?

Will Donald Trump himself destroy Donald Trump the President?

What might happen now that President-elect Donald Trump has won the election? What will be the impact? What will happen between the time he loses his re-election early November and the next president takes over in late January

Is Donald Trump a Psychopath or at the very least a Sociopath?

What is Donald Trump's IQ?

One of the most widely-accepted traits of a Sociopath is the belief that the “rules” apply not to themselves but only to others. This generally comes with a complex rationalization, which generally involves readily apparent logical gaps and fallacies that the Sociopath tends to just leap right over. They're the kings of their own self, and without the ability to see beyond oneself, they feel they hold a privileged place in the social order. They view themselves frequently as a wolf in a society composed entirely of sheep waiting to be sheared.

Mobsters are kind of model Sociopaths, as they flaunt the social rule of law even extending to murder, arson, and other violent crimes, because they were slighted or wronged by others. They feel that they are justified in reacting in such a way. They reject the authority of the police, sheep have no authority over wolves.

Donald Trump is not necessarily a clear and unambiguous Sociopath, but I will say that the most Sociopathic thing he's suggested in my mind is gutting the first amendment by relaxing libel laws allowing him to sue people who print nasty things about him. The sheep are attacking him, and he, a wolf among sheep, must show them who's BOSS & in charge! That's just one example of Sociopath behavior. The potentially-Orwellian consequences on everyone else of gutting the first amendment don't matter, because this isn't about them. It's ALL about him.

RACISM - A DISEASE

TRump during racial discussions, ALWAYS refers to himself with an idiotically memorized denial “I’m the LEAST racist person in the room.” or “in the world.” His racism and bigotry are easily spotted by anyone with the ability to think rationally: ALL Mexicans are criminals and rapists. Illegal immigrants are here to take advantage of the system. ALL Muslims are terrorists. Immigrants don’t pay taxes. Migrants bring diseases into the United States. “Tremendous infectious disease is pouring across the border,” Trump “The United States has become a dumping ground for Mexico and, in fact, for many other parts of the world.” People from Haiti “all have AIDS” and that Nigerian immigrants would never “go back to their huts” “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Immigrants “animals” “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are,” he said. “These aren’t people, these are animals.” Caravans as a violent threat to the United States. “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in,” or an “invasion.” Slashed the country’s cap on refugee admissions to its lowest amount in decades. Suggested that Syrian refugees could be ISIS fighters in disguise. Calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on”. Implemented a travel ban on people from five majority-Muslim countries. Black people are “living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58% of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”.  “Our inner cities are a disaster,” “You get shot walking to the store. They have no education, they have no jobs.”

WHITE SUPREMACY

TRump said that the United States should change and accept more immigrants from countries such as Norway. Refused to condemn right-wing marchers. Insisted that “many sides” and “both sides” were to blame for violence. That the white nationalist groups included “some very fine people.”

According to THE ANNIE E. CASEY FOUNDATION:

Often, race-focused conversations derail because people are using the same terms in different ways. One of the challenges of communicating effectively about race is to move people from the narrow and individualized definition of racism to a more comprehensive and systemic awareness.

Establishing a shared language to present data, describe conditions and outcomes and identify root causes of inequities serves an important function. A common language creates a narrative that makes it easier to communicate the commitment to racial equity, both internally and externally, and it creates a platform for coordinated work toward equitable outcomes. The following are definitions of core concepts that can help groups develop a shared language for racial equity and inclusion:

DEFINITIONS AND CORE CONCEPTS

EQUITY:

Equity is defined as “the state, quality or ideal of being just, impartial and fair.” The concept of equity is synonymous with fairness and justice. It is helpful to think of equity as not simply a desired state of affairs or a lofty value. To be achieved and sustained, equity needs to be thought of as a structural and systemic concept.

EQUALITY:

Equality aims to ensure that everyone gets the same things in order to enjoy full, healthy lives.

EQUITY VS EQUALITY:

Equity involves trying to understand and give people what they need to enjoy full, healthy lives. Equality, in contrast, aims to ensure that everyone gets the same things in order to enjoy full, healthy lives. Like equity, equality aims to promote fairness and justice, but it can only work if everyone starts from the same place and needs the same things.

SYSTEMIC EQUITY:

Systemic equity is a complex combination of interrelated elements consciously designed to create, support and sustain social justice. It is a dynamic process that reinforces and replicates equitable ideas, power, resources, strategies, conditions, habits and outcomes.

INCLUSION:

Inclusion is the action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure. More than simply diversity and numerical representation, inclusion involves authentic and empowered participation and a true sense of belonging.

RACIAL JUSTICE:

Racial justice is the systematic fair treatment of people of all races that results in equitable opportunities and outcomes for everyone. All people are able to achieve their full potential in life, regardless of race, ethnicity or the community in which they live.

A “racial justice” framework can move us from a reactive posture to a more powerful, proactive and even preventive approach.

RACE:

Race is a socially constructed system of categorizing humans largely based on observable physical features (phenotypes), such as skin color, and on ancestry. There is no scientific basis for or discernible distinction between racial categories.

The ideology of race has become embedded in our identities, institutions and culture and is used as a basis for discrimination and domination.

RACISM:

The concept of racism is widely thought of as simply personal prejudice, but in fact, it is a complex system of racial hierarchies and inequities. At the micro level of racism, or individual level, are internalized and interpersonal racism. At the macro level of racism, we look beyond the individuals to the broader dynamics, including institutional and structural racism.

INTERNALIZED RACISM:

Internalized racism describes the private racial beliefs held by and within individuals. The way we absorb social messages about race and adopt them as personal beliefs, biases and prejudices are all within the realm of internalized racism.

For people of color, internalized oppression can involve believing in negative messages about oneself or one’s racial group. For white people, internalized privilege can involve feeling a sense of superiority and entitlement, or holding negative beliefs about people of color.

INTERPERSONAL RACISM:

Interpersonal racism is how our private beliefs about race become public when we interact with others. When we act upon our prejudices or unconscious bias — whether intentionally, visibly, verbally or not — we engage in interpersonal racism. Interpersonal racism also can be willful and overt, taking the form of bigotry, hate speech or racial violence.

INSTITUTIONAL RACISM:

Institutional racism is racial inequity within institutions and systems of power, such as places of employment, government agencies and social services. It can take the form of unfair policies and practices, discriminatory treatment and inequitable opportunities and outcomes.

A school system that concentrates people of color in the most overcrowded and under-resourced schools with the least qualified teachers compared to the educational opportunities of white students is an example of institutional racism.

STRUCTURAL RACISM:

Structural racism (or structural racialization) is the racial bias across institutions and society. It describes the cumulative and compounding effects of an array of factors that systematically privilege white people and disadvantage people of color.

Since the word “racism” often is understood as a conscious belief, “racialization” may be a better way to describe a process that does not require intentionality. Race equity expert John A. Powell writes:

“‘Racialization’ connotes a process rather than a static event. It underscores the fluid and dynamic nature of race…‘Structural racialization’ is a set of processes that may generate disparities or depress life outcomes without any racist actors.”

SYSTEMIC RACIALIZATION:

Systemic racialization describes a dynamic system that produces and replicates racial ideologies, identities and inequities. Systemic racialization is the well-institutionalized pattern of discrimination that cuts across major political, economic and social organizations in a society.

Public attention to racism is generally focused on the symptoms (such as a racist slur by an individual) rather than the system of racial inequity.

RACIAL PRIVILEGE AND RACIAL OPPRESSION:

Like two sides of the same coin, racial privilege describes race-based advantages and preferential treatment based on skin color, while racial oppression refers to race-based disadvantages, discrimination and exploitation based on skin color.

I found out that after he had passed that the anger had progressed to the point that my mother began locking herself in her bedroom after dark out of fear for her life. He used to aimlessly wander through the house at all hours of the night. Eventually her fear for her own life forced Mom to FINALLY commit him to a nursing care facility. SHE WAITED TOO LONG TO DO IT. The stresses in her life caused by him aged my mother GREATLY,  she was never the same. I also believe that the extreme stresses he placed her under caused the cancer that eventually took her life early.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE ANYONE WE KNOW?

Why does TRump constantly say things that are EASILY proven as untrue, even by a relative idiot such as myself?

Why does TRump tend to speak in relatively unrelated word salad paragraphs?

Why does TRump seemingly not remember the things he has said previously?

Why does TRump not remember all of the other atrocities committed by Assad – WTF, the babies gassed in 2013 didn’t count to TRump?

Why does TRump maintain and use an “enemies” list?

Why does Melania not want to live where he is - Even in the same room in the White House?

Why does son Barron seem to avoid him at all costs?

Why are TRump’s older children the only people he can trust?

THIS LIST IS NEARLY ENDLESS………

I TRULY BELIEVE THIS MAN IS SUFFERING FROM EARLY ONSET ALZHEIMER’S AND WE HAVE UNFORTUNATELY ELECTED HIM TO BE OUR PRESIDENT AND REPRESENT US ON THE WORLD STAGE!

Monday – July 3rd, 2017:

According to The Blaze, President T-Rump got “lost” upon his arrival back at Andrews Air Force Base and had to be “redirected” back to his limousine by the Secret Service. Watch the 1:24 second YouTube Video from Fox 10 News in Phoenix Arizona & decide for yourself what you are seeing! This is EXACTLY the type of thing that my Father did whenever my Mother drove him into town – He would aimlessly wander past the car with her sitting in it. The symptom actually worsened if he was tired.

MISOGYNISTIC HATRED

Misogyny as defined by Wikipedia is the hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women or girls. Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including social exclusion, sex discrimination, hostility, androcentrism, patriarchy, male privilege, belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification. Misogyny can occasionally be found within sacred texts of religions and mythologies, and various influential Western philosophers and thinkers have been described as misogynistic.

His old able to “grab em’ by the pussy and get away with it because he’s a rich celebrity” fits into this distressing definition quite handily.

NOTABLE QUOTES ABOUT MISOGYNY

Bette Davis: “When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch.” 

John Berger: “You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for your own pleasure.” 

Samuel Johnson: “Men know that women are an overmatch for them, and therefore they choose the weakest or the most ignorant. If they did not think so, they never could be afraid of women knowing as much as themselves.” 

Jesse Dangerously: “Both porn and religion distort a person’s perspectives on women.” 

Virginia Woolf: “One does not like to be told that one is naturally the inferior of a little man” 

Sarah B. Pomeroy: “Misogyny was born of fear of women.” 

AND LAST, BUT NOT LEAST……

Aaron Blake of the Washington Post: “Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she takes “absolute personal responsibility” for her 2016 loss. But she doesn’t, really.”

TRump has often proven beyond any reasonable doubt that he suffers from rampant misogyny. From his 3 marriages with “trophy wives”, all eventually discarded to the trash heap when he found another more fascinating one while still married to the previous one. To his “Grab ‘em by the pussy” statement on the Access Hollywood bus. And EVERYTHING ELSE in between.

A NARCISSISTIC PERSONALTY

The below list of traits, makes up the classic psychiatric definition of a Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

TRump is relatively unique even among Narcissists in the fact that he, at one time or another each and every week, strongly exhibits ALL 16 of the below listed traits. Most narcissistic personalities suffer from only a few of those symptoms.

If you have narcissistic personality disorder, you may come across as conceited, boastful or pretentious. You often monopolize conversations. You may belittle or look down on people you perceive as inferior. You may feel a sense of entitlement — and when you don't receive special treatment, you may become impatient or angry. You may insist on having "the best" of everything — for instance, the best car, athletic club or medical care. At the same time, you have trouble handling anything that may be perceived as criticism. The President is utterly unable to handle being booed and because of this, he will SELDOM appear in public anywhere other than in a campaign style rally where only his adoring fans are granted admission. He tries to avoid travel to foreign countries that allow their citizens the freedom to protest. He regularly walks out of interviews where he deems that the questions are “unfair”.

THE TELLING SYMPTOMS DEFINED

1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance. Their reputation means EVERYTHING to them.

2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.

3. 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). Sincerely believing themselves to be “above the law” in every possible way.

4. Requires excessive admiration, regularly fishing for compliments, and is highly susceptible to flattery. A problem usually indicative of a neglected childhood.

5. Has a sense of entitlement. You and others “owe” them.

6. Is interpersonally exploitative, shamelessly taking advantage of others in order to achieve their own ends.

7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling or unable to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others. They literally exist purely to serve their own grandiose needs.

8. Is often envious of others and at the same time believes that others are envious of him or her.

9. Shows arrogant, abusive behaviors or attitudes towards others. Most are terrible, negative gossips.

10. Are highly reactive to criticism. Or anything they assume or interpret as negatively evaluating their personality or performance.

11. Have low self-esteem, It’s not uncommon for them to rise to positions of power and influence, as well as amass a fortune.

12. Can be inordinately self-righteous and defensive. Needing so much to protect their overblown but fragile ego, their ever-vigilant defense system can be extraordinarily easy to set off.

13. React to contrary viewpoints with anger or rage.

14. Has a major problem with authority. Feels that those people are “less intelligent” that they are.

15. Dominates each conversations and constantly steers conversations to eventually be about them.

16. Collect friends that idolize them. Surrounding themselves with acolytes or minions that will provide positive feedback. As soon as they don’t they are ostracised.

TRump has often exhibited ALL 16 of the above symptoms or traits.

A SOCIOPATHIC PERSONALITY

TRump’s lifelong pattern of enriching himself no matter what the consequences or harm caused to others is the classic definition of a Sociopath.

Steve Bressert, Ph.D. of Horizon Family Solutions discusses the symptoms:

Antisocial Personality Disorder is a disorder that is characterized by a long-standing pattern of disregard for other people’s rights, often crossing the line and violating those rights. A person with APD often feels little or no empathy toward other people, and doesn’t see the problem in bending or breaking the law for their own needs or wants. The disorder usually begins in childhood or as a teen and continues into a person’s adult life. APD is often referred to as Psychopathy or Sociopathy in popular culture. However, neither psychopathy nor Sociopathy are recognized professional labels used for diagnosis. Individuals with APD frequently lack empathy and tend to be callous, cynical, and contemptuous of the feelings, rights, and sufferings of others. They may have an inflated and arrogant self-appraisal (e.g., feel that ordinary work is beneath them or lack a realistic concern about their current problems or their future) and may be excessively opinionated, self- assured, or cocky. They may display a glib, superficial charm and can be quite voluble and verbally facile (e.g., using technical terms or jargon that might impress someone who is unfamiliar with the topic). Lack of empathy, inflated self-appraisal, and superficial charm are features that have been commonly included in traditional conceptions of psychopathy and may be particularly distinguishing of APD in prison or forensic settings where criminal, delinquent, or aggressive acts are likely to be non-specific. These individuals may also be irresponsible and exploitative in their sexual relationships.

A personality disorder is an enduring pattern of inner experience and behavior that deviates from the norm of the individual’s culture. The pattern is seen in two or more of the following areas: cognition; affect; interpersonal functioning; or impulse control. The enduring pattern is inflexible and pervasive across a broad range of personal and social situations. It typically leads to significant distress or impairment in social, work or other areas of functioning. The pattern is stable and of long duration, and its onset can be traced back to early adulthood or adolescence.

Psychologists are quick to point out that some empathetic people can act as if they are Sociopaths, for many purposes: to appear tough, to get people to accept them or to acquiesce, or (?) to get votes. That’s why psychologists are reluctant to make distant diagnoses. On the other hand, the public does this frequently; we all have our quick analyses of people that we use to make our own decisions; we can’t help but do this, and it is probably a necessary way to function in a complex world. So you will hear many strongly put arguments about Donald Trump, on both sides:

Is Donald Trump a Psychopath, Sociopath, Narcissist or suffering from some other disorder?

Will Donald Trump himself destroy Donald Trump the President?

What might happen now that President-elect Donald Trump has won the election? What will be the impact? What will happen between the time he loses his re-election early November and the next president takes over in late January

Is Donald Trump a Psychopath or at the very least a Sociopath?

What is Donald Trump's IQ?

One of the most widely-accepted traits of a Sociopath is the belief that the “rules” apply not to themselves but only to others. This generally comes with a complex rationalization, which generally involves readily apparent logical gaps and fallacies that the Sociopath tends to just leap right over. They're the kings of their own self, and without the ability to see beyond oneself, they feel they hold a privileged place in the social order. They view themselves frequently as a wolf in a society composed entirely of sheep waiting to be sheared.

Mobsters are kind of model Sociopaths, as they flaunt the social rule of law even extending to murder, arson, and other violent crimes, because they were slighted or wronged by others. They feel that they are justified in reacting in such a way. They reject the authority of the police, sheep have no authority over wolves.

Donald Trump is not necessarily a clear and unambiguous Sociopath, but I will say that the most Sociopathic thing he's suggested in my mind is gutting the first amendment by relaxing libel laws allowing him to sue people who print nasty things about him. The sheep are attacking him, and he, a wolf among sheep, must show them who's BOSS & in charge! That's just one example of Sociopath behavior. The potentially-Orwellian consequences on everyone else of gutting the first amendment don't matter, because this isn't about them. It's ALL about him.

RACISM - A DISEASE

TRump during racial discussions, ALWAYS refers to himself with an idiotically memorized denial “I’m the LEAST racist person in the room.” or “in the world.” His racism and bigotry are easily spotted by anyone with the ability to think rationally: ALL Mexicans are criminals and rapists. Illegal immigrants are here to take advantage of the system. ALL Muslims are terrorists. Immigrants don’t pay taxes. Migrants bring diseases into the United States. “Tremendous infectious disease is pouring across the border,” Trump “The United States has become a dumping ground for Mexico and, in fact, for many other parts of the world.” People from Haiti “all have AIDS” and that Nigerian immigrants would never “go back to their huts” “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Immigrants “animals” “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are,” he said. “These aren’t people, these are animals.” Caravans as a violent threat to the United States. “Criminals and unknown Middle Easterners are mixed in,” or an “invasion.” Slashed the country’s cap on refugee admissions to its lowest amount in decades. Suggested that Syrian refugees could be ISIS fighters in disguise. Calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on”. Implemented a travel ban on people from five majority-Muslim countries. Black people are “living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58% of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”.  “Our inner cities are a disaster,” “You get shot walking to the store. They have no education, they have no jobs.”

WHITE SUPREMACY

TRump said that the United States should change and accept more immigrants from countries such as Norway. Refused to condemn right-wing marchers. Insisted that “many sides” and “both sides” were to blame for violence. That the white nationalist groups included “some very fine people.”

According to THE ANNIE E. CASEY FOUNDATION:

Often, race-focused conversations derail because people are using the same terms in different ways. One of the challenges of communicating effectively about race is to move people from the narrow and individualized definition of racism to a more comprehensive and systemic awareness.

Establishing a shared language to present data, describe conditions and outcomes and identify root causes of inequities serves an important function. A common language creates a narrative that makes it easier to communicate the commitment to racial equity, both internally and externally, and it creates a platform for coordinated work toward equitable outcomes. The following are definitions of core concepts that can help groups develop a shared language for racial equity and inclusion:

DEFINITIONS AND CORE CONCEPTS

EQUITY:

Equity is defined as “the state, quality or ideal of being just, impartial and fair.” The concept of equity is synonymous with fairness and justice. It is helpful to think of equity as not simply a desired state of affairs or a lofty value. To be achieved and sustained, equity needs to be thought of as a structural and systemic concept.

EQUALITY:

Equality aims to ensure that everyone gets the same things in order to enjoy full, healthy lives.

EQUITY VS EQUALITY:

Equity involves trying to understand and give people what they need to enjoy full, healthy lives. Equality, in contrast, aims to ensure that everyone gets the same things in order to enjoy full, healthy lives. Like equity, equality aims to promote fairness and justice, but it can only work if everyone starts from the same place and needs the same things.

SYSTEMIC EQUITY:

Systemic equity is a complex combination of interrelated elements consciously designed to create, support and sustain social justice. It is a dynamic process that reinforces and replicates equitable ideas, power, resources, strategies, conditions, habits and outcomes.

INCLUSION:

Inclusion is the action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure. More than simply diversity and numerical representation, inclusion involves authentic and empowered participation and a true sense of belonging.

RACIAL JUSTICE:

Racial justice is the systematic fair treatment of people of all races that results in equitable opportunities and outcomes for everyone. All people are able to achieve their full potential in life, regardless of race, ethnicity or the community in which they live.

A “racial justice” framework can move us from a reactive posture to a more powerful, proactive and even preventive approach.

RACE:

Race is a socially constructed system of categorizing humans largely based on observable physical features (phenotypes), such as skin color, and on ancestry. There is no scientific basis for or discernible distinction between racial categories.

The ideology of race has become embedded in our identities, institutions and culture and is used as a basis for discrimination and domination.

RACISM:

The concept of racism is widely thought of as simply personal prejudice, but in fact, it is a complex system of racial hierarchies and inequities. At the micro level of racism, or individual level, are internalized and interpersonal racism. At the macro level of racism, we look beyond the individuals to the broader dynamics, including institutional and structural racism.

INTERNALIZED RACISM:

Internalized racism describes the private racial beliefs held by and within individuals. The way we absorb social messages about race and adopt them as personal beliefs, biases and prejudices are all within the realm of internalized racism.

For people of color, internalized oppression can involve believing in negative messages about oneself or one’s racial group. For white people, internalized privilege can involve feeling a sense of superiority and entitlement, or holding negative beliefs about people of color.

INTERPERSONAL RACISM:

Interpersonal racism is how our private beliefs about race become public when we interact with others. When we act upon our prejudices or unconscious bias — whether intentionally, visibly, verbally or not — we engage in interpersonal racism. Interpersonal racism also can be willful and overt, taking the form of bigotry, hate speech or racial violence.

INSTITUTIONAL RACISM:

Institutional racism is racial inequity within institutions and systems of power, such as places of employment, government agencies and social services. It can take the form of unfair policies and practices, discriminatory treatment and inequitable opportunities and outcomes.

A school system that concentrates people of color in the most overcrowded and under-resourced schools with the least qualified teachers compared to the educational opportunities of white students is an example of institutional racism.

STRUCTURAL RACISM:

Structural racism (or structural racialization) is the racial bias across institutions and society. It describes the cumulative and compounding effects of an array of factors that systematically privilege white people and disadvantage people of color.

Since the word “racism” often is understood as a conscious belief, “racialization” may be a better way to describe a process that does not require intentionality. Race equity expert John A. Powell writes:

“‘Racialization’ connotes a process rather than a static event. It underscores the fluid and dynamic nature of race…‘Structural racialization’ is a set of processes that may generate disparities or depress life outcomes without any racist actors.”

SYSTEMIC RACIALIZATION:

Systemic racialization describes a dynamic system that produces and replicates racial ideologies, identities and inequities. Systemic racialization is the well-institutionalized pattern of discrimination that cuts across major political, economic and social organizations in a society.

Public attention to racism is generally focused on the symptoms (such as a racist slur by an individual) rather than the system of racial inequity.

RACIAL PRIVILEGE AND RACIAL OPPRESSION:

Like two sides of the same coin, racial privilege describes race-based advantages and preferential treatment based on skin color, while racial oppression refers to race-based disadvantages, discrimination and exploitation based on skin color.

THE PRESIDENT
Our President suffers from a myriad of dangerous ailments that I have personally observed on television and read about the symptoms of during the past 45+ years. My observations from the early 1980’s where TRump’s lawyers found a way for him to “steal” his two bankrupted Atlantic City Casino employees’ retirement funds and stash the money in his own coffers to his “grab em’ by the pussy and get away with it because I’m a famous celebrity” bus ride. Eventually, we may actually see the tape recordings from The Apprentice, where it is rumored that he often displayed “ass-hole-of-the-day” tendencies. Today, He wanders about aimlessly, Tilts forward at an odd angle. His eyes are dilated during speeches, even under bright lights. This list is LONG.
