Psychosis is defined (from the Greek ψυχή "psyche", for mind/soul, and -ωσις "-osis", for abnormal condition) as an abnormal condition of the mind, and is a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a "loss of contact with reality".
Leading up to the 2008 election, we saw the rise of a first term Senator from the state of Illinois named Barack Obama. This man literally came out of nowhere, but not without a great deal of heavy and highly questionable baggage.
Barack Obama, much to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Political machine’s consternation, was able to convince the liberal grass roots throng that not only was his baggage not the least bit heavy, but he had actually lost the claim check for his baggage completely.
Thus, the Bill Ayers’, Jeremiah Wrights’, Saul Alinskys’, along with the then-junior-senator’s overall lack of transparency, stayed packed neatly away in Obama’s leaden Samsonite, quietly circling alone on the conveyor belt of rational thought, before being placed in public scrutiny’s Lost and Found department.
Philip Berg, an attorney acting on behalf of the Clinton machine, filed a motion in federal district court on August 21, 2008, against Democratic Party presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama. The Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission chose to ignore the fact that Obama was allegedly born in Mombasa, Kenya and that the "Certification of Live Birth" posted on Obama's website, is a forgery.
Though the complaint was dismissed as frivolous, it began President Obama’s commitment to spending as much money as necessary in legal fees to keep his credentials suppressed for whatever reason he chooses to do so!
As Berg was an activist attorney acting on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign this, in a way, makes Mrs. Clinton the De facto mother of the “Birther” movement!
Yet somehow the stigma of racism dogging those who question Mr. Obama’s eligibility contemporaneously, somehow fails to be affixed to the Democrats and the Clinton machine responsible for getting the “birther” ball rolling.
All of this is irrelevant to Democrats because true liberal Obama supporters couldn’t possibly care less if Obama is or is not a natural born citizen, just like the left doesn’t care Barack was the least qualified candidate in the field from either side of the political aisle.
Democrats didn’t care about Obama’s less than savory and, in many cases, un-American close associations. Nor did they care despite our nation’s fight against socialism for the better part of the 20th century, Mr. Obama displayed socialist proclivities.
Even now, in the face of President Obama’s numerous broken promises and utter failure in dealing with the countries economic woes, for some the man can do no wrong. Without regard for the “no more cowboy diplomacy” candidate and Nobel Peace Prize laureate recently launching an attack against another country.
To Obama’s base it doesn’t matter he explicitly contradicts his own criteria for using U.S. military force and, I might add, does so without congressional approval, the true Obama sycophants hold fast to their belief in Hope” and “Change”.
Thus, we are not surprised to read statements such as:
“I simply don't care about the facts you're throwing out. What I care about is getting our country back on track...”
Even more troubling is the way this statement ends:
”…and Donald Trump is the only one that will do that. I don't care who he hired in his business. I don't care that a Democrat is his campaign advisor, I don't care who he has donated money to.”
How is such an irresponsible statement different from the unsettlingly similar statements, thoughtlessly spouted by Obama supporters, we on the right expressed contempt for over the past few years?
I spent the better part of last week engaging with people who are ardent supporters of a Donald Trump presidential candidacy with negligible success. Trump supporters seem as immune to rational argumentation as the most psychotic Obama loose bolts.
In response to an invitation to read my article “Cmon’ Folks, Let’s Get Real” and listen to Mark Levin’s blistering critique of Trump’s conservative bona fides, the afore quoted Trump acolyte wrote:
“Your article shows you hate Trump so silly for me to even respond to you any further. You'd never have anything good to say about him. That's fine.”
I may have a biased perspective when it comes to my own ability to convey ideas with the written word, but I dogmatically insist there is nothing within my article intimating I harbor hatred for Donald Trump--at least not to a rational individual!
The difference is this article is not about rational individuals, it’s about people on both sides of the political aisle so blinded by rhetoric, they refuse to examine their political sacred cows!
I wish I could say Trump psychotics were a rare breed, but I have run into an inordinate number of them in the last week. Like their liberal Obama kindred, Trump followers refuse to acknowledge either the truth or the record of their guy.
It doesn’t matter Trump, in his book “The America We Deserve” asserts the U.S. needs a universal healthcare plan like Canada’s. Trump writes:
“Doctors might be paid less than they are now, as is the case in Canada, but they would be able to treat more patients because of the reduction in their paperwork,”
For Donald supporters, Does this mean, as long as Trump says he wants to overturn Obama’s socialist plan so he can promote Canada’s socialist healthcare plan, a socialist plan is okay?
Hasn’t President Obama and the liberal left made it a point to talk more about what American’s “deserve” instead of what American’s can earn on their own? Is it just me?
The leftist mainstream media has spent the last few years blaming the Tea Party for taking the establishment Republicans too far to the right. Over the past few weeks, this rhetoric was ratcheted up by Democrat Congressional leadership. Chuck Schumer made it abundantly clear the left’s agenda was to marginalize the Tea Party and conservatism as much as possible, highlighting the Tea Party’s “extreme” views!
Trump back in 1999 on “Meet the Press”, told the late Tim Russert:
“I really believe the Republicans are just too crazy, right?” he went on to say; “I mean, just what’s going on is just nuts.”
Keep in mind this was 1999, after the George W. Bush nomination was a foregone conclusion. At this point Trump split with the Republican Party faithful and spent the next eight years delivering liberal talking points.
Yet we are asked to believe Trump has now joined and identifies with the far more conservatively
orthodox and “extreme” right wing Tea Party? “ Cmon’ folks! When was Trump’s political “Road to Damascus” moment?
It seems Trump Psychotics are as willing to disregard Trump’s past as the Obama Psychotics are when breathlessly devoting themselves to their savior of all things good.
For some it doesn’t matter Trump just a few years ago contributed to the Who’s Who of anti-Tea Party candidates. Money for Harry Reid and Anthony Weiner and the self appointed champion of the extreme view of the Tea Party, Chuck Schumer! After all Trump does say: “I’m a business man”.
Trump gave campaign funds to conservative turncoat Charlie Crist, but no money for Tea Party favorite Marco Rubio. So much for Trump’s it’s “good business” to give to both sides cock and bull story.
Beyond the “good business man” malarkey, if you’re successful and powerful and truly believe Obama and the left are wrecking the country, would you help fund the destruction?
I mean, what happens when the side you say you don’t like wins? Does it make sense to pay into a political philosophy you say is hostile to business because you’re a businessman? Does this imply Trump is putting his business ahead of the overall good of the nation, because his explanation certainly implies so! Think People!
Is Donald Trump a born again conservative? Perhaps. I haven’t seen anything beyond his rhetoric to convince me a decade worth of conservative bashing should be disregarded just because Trump has poorly advanced some eligibility arguments!
Not when there are so many longstanding and true conservative voices being drowned out who make the same statements about the economy, foreign markets and returning to American pride with far more intelligence and credibility!
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:15
Shake off the psychosis! Let’s return to the rational thought separating us from the reactionary left and their ill developed ability to discern between feeling good and the pragmatic truth of the type of leaders we should look for to steer our ship of state back to a steady and prosperous course.
