Donald J. Trump, The Art of Covert Hypnosis

The Obscene Presidential Reign of Donald J. Trump

INTRODUCTION

In the old Kingdom of ancient Egypt, the first pharaohs understood the extraordinary power of ideology and of its visual counterpart, iconography, to unite disparate people and bind them in loyalty to them and the state. Ancient Egypt’s earliest kings formulated and harnessed the tools of leadership that are still present with us today, especially under the obscene presidential reign of Donald J. Trump: elaborate trappings of office and carefully choreographed public appearances; pomp and spectacles on grand state occasions, all of these trappings expressed orally and visually to set him apart from the populace and reinforce the bonds of loyalty of his supporters. But, like for Trump today, the pharaohs and their advisers knew equally well that their grip on power could be maintained just as effectively by other less benevolent means: political cunning propaganda, a personal and political ideology of xenophobia, close surveillance of the masses and population mood, brutal repression of any form of dissent.

The ancient Egyptians invented the concept of nation-state that still dominates our planet five thousand years later. The Egyptians’ creation was remarkable, not only for its impact, but also for its longevity: the pharaonic age lasted for three millennia. By comparison, Rome barely managed to rule the world for one millennium, the hegemony of the British Empire lasted only for a few centuries and the American supremacy has yet to survive. A key reason for this remarkable survival is that the philosophical and political framework first developed at the birth of ancient Egypt was so well attuned to the national psyche that it remained the archetypal pattern of government for the next one hundred generations; despite prolonged periods of political fragmentation, decentralization, and unrest, the pharaonic rule remained a powerful ideal.

Other times, other manners. Ancient Egypt was a sparsely populated tribal society, its polytheistic religion, pre-monetary economy, the low rate of literacy, the political ideological dominance of divine kingship, all these defining characteristics of ancient Egypt are utterly alien to most contemporary Western civilization including the United States of America and its constituency. Notwithstanding how devious Donald J. Trump may be, what did work for the ancient Egypt’s rulers may not work for him and help him in his 2020 reelection crusade. The arrogance of Donald J. Trump and his self-confidence contain the seeds of his own destruction and the obliteration of the USA domination and influence around the world.

PEOPLE: IT IS NOW TIME TO GO NUCLEAR ON THIS CLOWN

“I am awesome!” – Donald Trump

“I am exceptionally smart” he said.” “I’m, like, a very smart person,” he assured voters in 2016, “A very stable genius,” he ruled two years later.

And then, on last April 24, this exceptionally smart, very stable genius comes out with this unbelievable statement suggesting “injection” of disinfectant to beat coronavirus and “clean” the lungs. No modern politician anywhere in the world can match and surpass Trump’s record of irrational or illogical statements.

Trump is in a class of its own.

His constant careless and too often delusional statements definitely invited questions about his intelligence and actual state of mind.

When Rex Tillerson called Trump a “moron” in private, he was absolutely right. So where all other former senior administration officials that did the same or rendered equivalent verdicts.

Trump is a megalomaniac.

Since long before his 2016 campaign, few subjects have been as meaningful to him as appraisals of his intellect. For Trump, it always has been a source of perpetual obsession and manifest insecurity, so much, that he always felt and still do feel the need to allude to his brainpower regularly.

Trump does not want to feel like anybody is better than he is. He cannot deal with that and this is the reason why he his so often dismissing doctors and their opinions. He used to be intimidated by lawyers. Anyone who knows more than he does makes him feel less than he is.

Don’t get me wrong, I always cheer the underdog and applaud when they win. But if I was still be praising Trump, I would have to question my own sanity!

I now believe that it is time to go nuclear on Trump.

The only remedy is the 25th Amendment.

Are the media more to blame than Trump for the white supremacist rhetoric surge?

From Trump to Fox News to 8chan: the web of white supremacist rhetoric is wide

Since 16 June 2015, the day he rode an escalator down to the lobby of Trump Tower, Trump has made fear of immigrants and those who might look like immigrants, the central theme of his campaigns and his administrative priorities. Trump is a politician perfectly fitted for a media ecosystem that amplifies extreme emotions, resists complex or nuanced thought, impedes deliberation and allows the loud to drown out the calm. Regardless of his tweets and speeches, his actions have inspired and emboldened violent bigots.

It’s hard in the heat of the moment, in the face of so much suffering and horror, to look at the entire ecosystem that fosters and encourages such thought and action. There are no simple, straightforward causes for this phenomenon. There is no simple “solution”. There is not one distinct medium to blame. White nationalists are savvy about how they work our dynamic, interconnected media ecosystem. Some are even savvier than the journalists who write about them and definitely know to exploit the weaknesses of the system. When they post screeds on forums such as 8Chan, white nationalists intend for police and journalists to quote directly from them and spread their messages farther than they could themselves. Their claims and terms of choice leap from the dark recesses of small, discrete groups into wider circulation. Coverage and quotes echo around mainstream news reports, then get recirculated even farther and revised into vernacular commentary via amateur posts to Twitter, WhatsApp and Facebook. Facebook’s algorithms are designed to amplify content that generates strong emotions and thus, user reactions. Individuals add their own perspectives, reaction to the supremacist’s events and gelling into new forms and new expressions via Facebook and Twitter. What rises on Twitter tends to echo on Facebook and vice versa. Soon images and messages are bouncing back and forth, getting picked up by cable news, newspapers and news sites.

Every player in this complex ecosystem enhances, amplifies and changes the story and the message. The spectacle is the reward. For violent white nationalists and all other propagandists of all kinds and gender, this is an ideal media system. Their numbers can grow once their messages don’t seem so jarring and outside the bounds of normal conversation. The rhetoric of violent white supremacy like for the rhetoric of LGBT groups, the #MeToo movement has become common, almost normal. More and more people find homosexuality, lesbianism, white nationalism and so on, viable and acceptable.

Many, like for any other deviant philosophy and way of life, become less willing to condemn discrimination, racism and bigotry and mainstream media, journalists and pundits, like it or not, by their continuous insistence on reporting and commenting on Trump’s elucubrations are only contributing to convince a growing majority of their audience to grant racists the benefit of the doubt and take their concerns seriously.

In a world of increasing poverty and misery, more and more people might find white nationalism a comfortable world view, one that satisfies a once-latent urge to bond only with those like them and blame problems on those unlike them.

It is about time for all media to realize that without them, like for all deviant groups, Trump is nothing.

Give Trump the credit

FadeDonald

Trump is a political animal

Throughout the primary season, Trump surprisingly demonstrated a never seen before acute political instinct that is hard to match.

During the February Florida Republican debate, Trump was asked about former Mexican President Vicente Fox’s comment that his country wouldn’t pay for Trump’s “fucking wall.”

“The wall just got 10 feet taller,” Trump shot back.

He then called on Fox to apologize for his foul language, reiterated that Mexico would, indeed, pay for the wall and hit Mexico for its countless sins against the United States.

In slapping down the former Mexican president, Trump reiterated and confirmed his toughness and nationalistic fiber.

Trump did the same thing when he turned Ted Cruz’s “New York values” attack into a riff about 9/11.

And again, reaffirming his patriotic values, in response to the San Bernardino terror attack, when he proposed his now infamous temporary ban on all Muslims entering the United States.

Everyone denounced him. Apparently, no one agreed with him.

Trump could not care less. For trump, the emotional punch of the ban, and the way it differentiated him from the other candidates, was the important thing and ultimately, a large part of the Republican voters agreed with him.

In New Hampshire, 65 percent supported the ban, in South Carolina, 74 percent supported it, in New York, 68 percent.

Trump calls it as it is

With no pollsters, no speechwriters, no fundraising staff, little campaign organization, few TV advertisements, no debate prep, Trump has won the Republican presidential nomination.

Trump’s achievement is not so difficult to comprehend.

He did it by pounding a simple, emotive message over and over: “Making America Great Again”. He did it not being afraid of controversy and saying it as it is. It made him stand out from a field of an original field of seventeen candidates.

Trump’s every act of outrageousness reinforced his reputation as the “truth-telling” outsider.

Challenging and changing the rules

Trump while proving to be an exceptionally skilled politician was also fortunate. Not being taken seriously, for most of the primary season, there wasn’t any organized effort against him. He won three out of the first four contests while his rivals squabbled among themselves.

The establishment initially bet on Jeb Bush, and then, tapped out financially and psychologically, did nothing to rally around Cruz, whom many insiders fear and hate more than Trump.

Rubio may have been an option but trying to go against Trump mano to mano was not is greatest idea.

All of sudden, it became clear that the only alternative to a clean Trump nomination was a contested convention.

Trump has changed all the political rules. What he has done is not easily replicable. Now it is on to the next test: Will the Trump’s recipe work in the general election or will he fade away?

It would be foolish to discount his chances.

Donald Trump: Defying Gravity

donald-trump-exlarge

Donald Trump: Against all odds

Everyone said it wouldn’t happen. Everyone was wrong.

May 3, 2016, Donald Trump pulls off one of the most unlikely electoral coups of modern times. Toppling the political and media establishment, Trump becomes the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

His campaign initially dismissed as a joke, Trump confounds the pundits to such a degree that all bets are off about how the rest of the 2016 Presidential race might unfold.

‘Thought I’d be going longer’

Even Trump himself seemed surprised by the swiftness at which he locked down the nomination. In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday May 4, Trump said he expected Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton to finish her primary campaign before him. “I’m even surprised,” Trump said. “I thought I’d be going longer, she’d be going shorter.”

But the drudgery of presidential politics leaves no time for relishing victory.

In his first full day as the presumptive nominee, Trump’s campaign had to quickly shift gears from a primary fight to a search for a running mate.

Meanwhile, Trump faces a host of new questions including whether his unorthodox approach to winning the GOP primary will translate into a general election battle against one of the biggest names in politics today: Hilary Clinton.

Starting from a tough place

The latest CNN/ORC poll dated Wednesday May 4 find that Clinton leads Trump 54% to 41% in a potential general election match-up. She is more trusted than him on issues ranging from foreign policy to education and health care.

Still, by a 50% to 45% margin, voters say Trump would do a better job handling the economy. And almost 9 out of 10 voters in the poll called the economy extremely or very important to their vote, outranking any other issue tested in the poll.

The political skills that Trump brought to the primary fight could prove potent in a race already shaping up as a bitter, nasty personal clash between the two presidential candidates.

Up to now, Trump’s tough tactics disrupted one of the most experienced Republican fields of presidential candidates in a generation. He destroyed the political hopes of Jeb Bush with his “low energy” jibe. He destroyed the political hopes of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio referring to them as “Lying” Ted and “Little” Marco.

Trump is now trying to take a similar approach to Clinton, dubbing her “Crooked Hillary,” accusing her to play “The Women Card”.

Revolutionizing political campaigns

With an spot-on eye for a rival’s weaknesses, Trump revolutionized how campaigns are won, becoming a master of social media, hijacking news agendas with skills honed on a reality television and a mastery of targeted marketing.

And with undeniable political skill, Trump became an earthy cypher for ignored blue collar Americans who revile conventional politicians as they struggle to get by in a wounded economy.

Using just a few issues, like illegal immigration, the toll wreaked on industrial communities by free trade and by playing into a wider sense of national decline with his “Make America Great Again” message, Trump made himself an unstoppable political force. His bite was so intimidating that by the time competitors such as Bush, Cruz and Rubio mustered the courage to criticize his past, his character and his politics, their campaigns were already faltering.

Clinton may not make a similar mistake. In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, she showed no problem hitting Trump. “He’s a loose cannon,” she said. “And loose cannons tend to misfire.”

Even though along the primaries, Trump lifted his vote totals easily above the 50% mark, his core support in the blue collar Republican electorate still represents a minority of opinion in a nation that is becoming more diverse and less white.

Defying rock-bottom approval ratings

Trump enters the general election with rock-bottom approval ratings among Hispanics, African-Americans and women.

His rudimentary policy platforms will come under increasing scrutiny. Then voters will have to decide if they are willing to elect a President whose impact is already reaching far beyond the nation’s borders, triggering palpable concern abroad.

Trump’s critics worry that his political rhetoric on issues from immigration to women’s rights take American politics closer to the dark fringes of demagoguery than it has been for decades and the Democratic barrage has already begun.

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren went on the attack soon after Trump’s triumph in Indiana tweeting that Trump built his campaign on “racism, sexism, and xenophobia” and that what happens next “will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man’s narcissism and divisiveness.”

Many Democrats believe that Trump’s victory in the GOP primary means they are almost certain to keep the White House. However, as the past year has proven, they would be unwise to underestimate the power of Trump.

Trump will be the next president of the United States of America.

Trump’s Evolution – The People White Knight

The White Knight

Trump’s chief strategist Paul Manafort spoke to members of the Republican National Committee on April 21.

With the nomination in sight, the transformation of Donald Trump is underway

Experienced political professionals have taken over, and a Presidential Donald Trump is on his way to win over the general electorate.

In a closed-door briefing, last Thursday April 21, Trump’s new chief strategist, Paul Manafort told the Republican National Committee that Trump has been playing a “part” on the campaign trail, but is starting to pivot toward presenting a more businesslike and presidential “persona.”

“He gets it,” Manafort told Republican National Committee members. “The part that he’s been playing is now evolving into the part that you’ve been expecting. The negatives will come down, the image is going to change, but ‘Crooked Hillary’ is still going to be ‘Crooked Hillary.’” …

Manafort argued that Clinton’s negative favorability ratings are caused by “character” issues, whereas Trump’s are fueled by “personality” concerns. “Fixing personality negatives is a lot easier than fixing character negatives,” Manafort said. “You can’t change somebody’s character, but you can change the way a person presents himself.”

Trump himself said: “I’m very capable of changing to anything I want to change to.” And, what I am saying is this: “Better believe it!”

Trump is the real deal: “The White Knight that people are looking for”

If you listen to Trump’s supporters, one of the things they cite for their attraction to him is that unlike every other politician, he is authentic. He “tells it like it is,” they say again and again. He is not like those candidates whose every word is crafted and rehearsed. He is real.

Trump is not an ordinary candidate. Trump is full of surprises and we did not see the end of it yet. His mastery of the art of effective communications is endless and up to now, the force of his personality and the emotions he channels have been powerful enough to guarantee him the Republican nomination.

People supporting Trump do not want someone who is qualified in any traditional political sense. They want someone who, like them, is hungry and angry enough to stick it to the people they hate, who will talk like them and say the things they say in private and wish they could say in public.

People of America are looking for a White Knight.

Trump may just be it.
