A Very POTUS Narcissist

A VERY POTUS

On 20th January 2017, Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States of America.

Various people have expressed their opinion that President Trump is a narcissist. This article is not going to be a detailed piece about whether he is or not. That is unnecessary and frankly, adds little to understanding. President Trump is one of our kind. That is apparent but hardly remarkable.

All US Presidents have been shown to either have been narcissists or have strong narcissistic traits. Indeed, some of the most successful and popular US Presidents have been clear narcissists, exhibiting significant charisma, magnetism and grandiosity. This includes Lyndon Johnson, Andrew Jackson, Teddy Roosevelt, JFK, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

This is not limited to the US. Wade through history, both recent and distant and leader after leader of countries, empires and dynasties can be shown to be narcissists. Other traits such as psychopathy and Machiavellianism are prevalent. In order to get to the top and rule a country one must have an unshakeable belief in oneself, to know what one is doing is right, to be unconcerned by offending feelings, to be driven, have a strong sense of self-preservation, manipulate, charm and inspire. Average will not cut it. Being an everyman will not get you there. Our kind do get there. Repeatedly.

It is therefore not a surprise at all that President Trump is one of our kind. What perhaps is surprising to some is that it is so obvious. Indeed, it almost at times appears like a caricature of narcissism since for someone so successful there is little or no credence given to the maintenance of the facade for which successful narcissists are infamous. The facade is there but with President Trump it manifests in a different manner.

If you think that this is going to be an article bashing or lauding The Donald then prepare to be disappointed. Go to your relevant echo chamber if you want to read about that. This article is to add the perspective of what can be expected from President Trump as viewed by one of his own. Naturally dependent on your perspective, you may regard it as good, bad or some of each, but it is a detailed observation about what to expect, from one who knows his own kind.

  1. He will get things done because he and the country are one.

Why is this? Donald Trump wants the USA to be great again. He campaigned on such a slogan. He wants this because then the United States of Donald Trump will be even greater. The US is an extension of President Trump. In common with our kind, he does not want to be controlled by his environment; he wants to control it. He regards the country and its people as an extension of him and he exerts the ultimate authority over it all. He wants that country to thrive because that means he will thrive through the production of all of the fuel that will come his way.

Like any leader he will face opposition to his plans. President Trump campaigned on building a wall between the US and Mexico. It may not turn out to be concrete all the way along, it will not be some Great Wall of America, but there will be a barrier. Why? Because that is his monument. He wants to create a monument to himself. This edifice which is the ultimate symbol of control. A wall, a fence, a barrier says “You can come in, but not you.” It says “I am going to protect you on this side and stop you on that side.” By creating this wall, President Trump creates a manifestation of his desire for control and also a physical and lasting monument to his perceived greatness. There will be attempts to exclude it from spending bills, to frustrate its construction but President Trump will see it done because it is his wall. It is him.

2. He will get things done because of an indefatigable desire to maintain superiority

In common with our kind, President Trump regards himself as in a class of one, above everybody else and why not? He is the oldest and wealthiest President in history. He has no governmental or military experience before taking office and he could not even rely on being a film star (although TV may half tick this box). Yet he became President of the United States and thus the most powerful man in the world. He believes that such a position is his right and entitlement and that the office was always destined to be his. To ensure he maintains superiority he will not give up. He must win every fight, he must ensure his opponent stays unsettled, belittled and whatever it takes to remain the one who has superiority. Witness the refusal to shake hands with Angela Merkel the German Chancellor. Diplomatic protocols and political niceties do not matter – he does what he wants and such an act ensured, in his mind, he held the advantage in that meeting.

President Trump’s stance on refugees is well-documented after he warned that admitting refugees from generally Muslim nations presented a threat to US security. Wasting no time, he issued an executive order suspending a refugee programme for 120 days. This was halted by a federal judge. President Trump did not wait around, he issued a revised executive order. Again this was halted by federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland. President Trump has stated he will fight the case all the way to the Supreme Court and he will.  A narcissist who wishes to maintain his superiority over his spouse when arguing about his late arrival from an evening of drinking will engage in blame-shifting, projection, denial, deflection, word salad and many more manipulations so he maintains the upper hand. He will twist and turn to stay on top. President Trump is no different. His desire to get his way will mean he will also twist and turn, order, demand and so forth so his superiority remains intact because to him as one of our kind it absolutely has to.

3. He will get things done because he is, from his perspective, always right

The Narcissistic Perspective which I have explained previously in Toxic Logic means that whilst we are looking at the same facts as you, we have differing perspectives. Those who are not of our kind find this difficult to grasp as they regard their perspective as the one that must be right and our stance is illogical, but to us our perspective is logical and right because it serves us and our needs.

This unshakeable belief in always being right serves to drive President Trump forward. It means that when he faces an obstacle, it is wrong and he is right and therefore it must be removed, surmounted or broken through and such action is also right. The maintenance of this perspective results in frequent and extensive blame-shifting. A Gallery of Villains is created who are shown to be irrational and dangerous opponents seeking to damage the righteous and right narcissist.

Take a look at President Trump’s Gallery of Villains, those who are to be blamed for various ills and who he shifts blame onto in order to remain right. Obama, Crooked Hillary, Little Marco (Marco Rubio), Muslims, China, Washington (“drain the swamp”), Mexican Americans, Democrats, the BBC, environmentalists and of course, the media, to name some.

Now of course it is hardly unheard of for an administration to blame others for current problems but the scale and extent of this blame-shifting is entirely representative o four kind and it will continue. Other people will always be at fault so target your annoyance, your hatred at them but not President Trump. He will not shy away from blaming anybody. His spokes person Sean Spicer has been criticised by President Trump, he is not afraid to chuck bodies on the bonfire be they longstanding villains or fresh ones, even from his own side.

By placing the blame always somewhere else and maintaining his superiority of being right, President Trump will continue to forge forward. Yes, he will create enemies, he will create protests and divide people, but of course he does not care. Why? Because he is right and they are at fault. 3 million protesting? So what? They are wrong and anyway it is fuel to him. Millions did not protest and millions voted for him, that is what he will be thinking.

4. He will use the narcissistic quality of victimhood to his advantage

This ties in with blame-shifting also. Our kind regard ourselves as victims when it suits us in order to engender sympathy, to derive pity, to manipulate, to achieve what we want and this is borne out of our perspective that the world is a cruel and harsh place where it  is seeking to do us down. By playing the victim we seek to blame-shift and avoid accountability whilst generating justification for our own actions.

President Trump is an extensive deployer of the concept of victimhood for the purposes of creating loyalty, stigmatising opponents and maintaining his stance as the one who will be the saviour. In his speeches he has referred to

“people that were mistreated by Government for many, many years”

“victims of illegal crime”

“American carnage”

“The jobs left”

“they’ve made us look foolish”

He creates a justifiable (from his perspective) them and us approach and of course that is in keeping with the narcissistic trait of split thinking. There is no grey. You are either with him or you are against him. You are either the perpetrator of awful activities against his people (and by extension him) or you are going to do something right and be loyal people (and by extension validate him). President Trump has no time for those he has painted ‘black’ with this split thinking. They are the enemy and have no standing. Again, those in the Gallery of Villains will be undermined through the application of narcissistic traits which leads us to the next point.

5. He will create his own truth

Much has been made of the concept of living in ‘post truth’ times. The adoption of a reality which accords with the needs of the narcissist is one of the hallmarks of narcissistic existence. The creation of a world where we are the ultimate controllers of everything around us, is important, and in order to do so, everything must be bent to our will to achieve this and if we cannot bend the world around us to do what we want, we create our own world, which is essentially Sigmund Freud’s extension of the latin quote

‘Flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebo’

(If I cannot bend the powers above, I will move the Infernal Regions)

Accordingly, this has led to the rise of fake news. If the output of the villainous news outlet does not accord with the narcissistic perspective then it is denied and labelled fake news. A new world with a new logic is being created and this will continue. It is worth making the point of course that this bending of facts is committed by both sides, since a slant can always be placed on news, however this moves beyond slants and spin but instead the wholesale dismissal of news as being fake and therefore invalid.

This creation of a new world outlook will continue and therefore anything that is presented to President Trump that does not align with his outlook will be dismissed, rejected and labelled in this manner.

This truth creation is a double edged sword. On the one had it maintains the belief of superiority and the ability to get things done, but it will also bring about conflict. Of course, that conflict will be caused by those regarded as being in the wrong and will lack any foundation of validity.

6. He will improve the US economy (but at a cost)

President Trump is a successful business man. He is worth between $3.5 and $10 billion dependent on who you ask, but what’s a few billion at that level? That denotes success. He knows he is successful. His self-belief (both based on achievement and delusional grandeur) means he knows best for the economy and in part that is right. His stance on trade which will see a more protectionist approach, his stated desire to create 25 million jobs over 10 years and his tax proposals will be achieved. This will see the US economy move upwards and there will be economic growth with a larger economy. Other countries will rush to court the US with shifting trade arrangements because the US is the ultimate trade partner and what it does dictates the global economy (witness the sub-prime fallout of 2008 as a recent example). Against this, the proposed enforcement of immigration will see millions of unpaid labourers removed. This will ultimately have an adverse effect on the economy but not after a period when domestic workers will be able to enjoy the boon afforded by the emphasis on hiring workers from the US. This will be a useful vote-winning and populist move but it will affect the economy so that the economic growth which will still occur, will not be as great as it might have been. The main cost however of this will be an increase in the deficit but President Trump will not care about that. It will be someone else’s fault and he will be focused on showcasing his triumphs through increased employment and an upturned economy.

7. Creation of an echo chamber

President Trump has already surrounded himself with admirers and those who think like him and accord with his values. Rex Tillerson (Secretary of State) worked for Exxon for 40 years and thus is a fellow rich businessman. Steve Mnuchin (Treasury Secretary) is a Wall Street insider from Goldman Sachs amongst other financial institutions. James Mattis (Secretary of Defence) is a popular and well-liked retired general who is known for blunt comments – just like the President. John Kelly (Department of Homeland Security Secretary) clashed with Obama on illegal immigrants between the US and Mexico. President Trump has installed his son-in-law as an advisor and his daughter has recently had a formal position created for her. This birds of a feather mentality ensures that he is surrounded by like thinkers who will accord with his views and provide momentum to what he requires.

It is not all one way traffic however. President Trump will make changes and volte faces as it suits him (as our kind regularly do) although any kind of allegation of contradictions, about turns or hypocrisy will always be rejected – it has to, superiority has to be maintained. An example of this is how in late January President Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum removing traditional military and intelligence advisers as regular attendees of the National Security Council’s Principal Committee and he appointed Steve Bannon (a clear Lieutenant) who is his chief strategist as regular attendee. By 4th April, the influence of HR McMaster (National Security Adviser who replaced Michael Flynn who had just 24 days in office) reversed those changes. This epitomises the compartmentalisation that we engage in. What was right yesterday, is wrong today and is then right again tomorrow and those decisions and outcomes remain separated.

In our minds the decision was always right all along and history has been revised in accordance with our narcissistic mindset and the need to maintain superiority (see The Revision of History ). If President Trump sees that it will achieve what is to be done, then he will make those changes. There is no dithering, no hesitation. The changes may contradict previous stances but not in his mind. His mind will always find a way to brush aside such allegations.

8. Frustration will cause achievement but foster resentment

In accordance with his huge sense of entitlement, what the President wants done must be done immediately and if not it is a criticism and his churning fury which is always there will start to ignite.

All narcissists have this fury. When we are criticised (which is not the same as criticism that a non-narcissist experiences) but rather, it is fuel free criticism and our fury ignites. Some of us can keep this under control, others cannot and it manifests as heated fury (physical violence, property destruction, shouting, name calling) or cold fury (cold shoulder, silent treatments, exclusion, sulking) .

President Trump suffers such narcissistic criticism often and this wounds him. His fury ignites. He does not go so far as to physically assault people, that is not his major weapon – Twitter is.

As a prolific tweeter, President Trump uses the social medium to display his heated fury and in turn the re-tweets and likes by the tens of thousands provide him with fuel which heals the wound caused by the criticism and his fury abates.

On the 7th February, clearly frustrated (and thus wounded by this criticism) of the dilatory nature by which his cabinet was not in place, he tweeted

‘It is a disgrace my cabinet is not yet in place, the longest delay in the history of our country.”

It was not the longest delay but that does not matter. His impatience and frustration is evident, something our kind suffers from and he sees no need to hide it.

Following Meryl Streep’s criticism of him at the Oscars, President Trump again turned to Twitter and referred to Streep as a “Hillary flunky” a clear response to being wounded.

When things are not being done to his liking and at the required speed, this will feel like a criticism to him. His fury will ignite and he will dismiss people, criticise them openly through Twitter and other means and take other steps to get done what he wants. This will have the advantage of causing matters to progress and people to operate through fear (love and fear being the chief reactions caused by our kind) but behind this will be a growing resentment at those who feel they have been badly treated as a consequence of these manifestations of ignited fury borne out of criticism arising from delay and frustration.

9. There will be no smoothing of the bombastic, straight talking

There are those who may have thought that achieving the goal of office and the standing that comes with it, then President Trump might somewhat calm down and apply some finesse and diplomatic gloss to his behaviour and words. There is unsurprisingly no evidence of that having happened so far and nor will it.

He, of course, as explained above is right about everything he says and everybody who disagrees is wrong. This straight talking has appeal, obviously to many voters who became tired of the coded speeches, political spin and doublespeak of other candidates and administrations. President Trump’s plain speaking means he regularly labels people (another narcissistic trait) and as mentioned above one of his biggest was to refer to Hillary Clinton as Crooked Hillary. He has repeatedly insulted news reporters in conferences and of course famously imitated disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski at a party rally in 2015.

This incident also evidenced President Trump’s capability for compartmentalisation and the revision of history (both of which will serve him in maintaining the upper hand) as later he declared

“I have no idea who this reporter Serge Kovaleski is”

and went even further to evidence our split-second contradictory behaviour by adding

“Despite having one of the all-time great memories, I certainly do not remember him.”

He also revels in taking hold of plain speaking directed at him and his allies. When Clinton referred to his supporters as a “basket of deplorables” this was seized on as a badge of honour and appropriated. Insults and plain speaking are in his domain and he will continue to use these devices to further his aims whilst turning the tables on anybody who uses them against him.

Such an attitude will enable him to get business done, to face down opponents but for every success achieved through this he is likely to create another problem through alienation and insult.

10. He will do what he wants

In accordance with the narcissistic sense of entitlement, failure to recognise boundaries, lack of accountability and preoccupation with unlimited success, President Trump will do what he wants. He considers himself unfettered and will adopt a Nixonian stance of

“When the President does it, that means it is not illegal.”

This will allow him to drive matters forward, he will consolidate popularity with his own supporters but he will draw challenges and disapproval elsewhere. Hence already his support remains high in his core supporters but his approval rating as a whole has fallen. Your opinion does not matter because if you are not with him then you are wrong and not to be listened to. You can be shuffled out of his inner circle and someone else will be found instead to provide the validation that narcissists require.

Furthermore, President Trump was democratically elected which means that this can only reinforce his belief that he is always right. His evident magnetism, driven attitude and bluff charm appealed to millions who felt let down and abandoned by a technocratic elite. But winning the electoral college vote was not enough to accord with this sense of right and entitlement. President Trump asserted that he would have won the popular vote as well if millions of immigrants had not voted illegally. Whether there is any evidence to support this assertion, it does not matter. This view accords with his sense of grandiosity – he in his mind achieved total victory because he will adopt the perspective which allows this to happen and this unlocks and maintains the right to do as he pleases.

Already, during his presidency, President Trump has spent 15% of his time at Trump owned or branded properties. Why not? They are his properties and he is President. He can do as he pleases. Mar-a-Lago has become the Winter White House. People criticise this mixing of official and self-interest but President Trump rejects this. He can do what he wants. They are wrong for a hundred reasons that the narcissistic perspective puts in place by way of defence mechanism.

This mixing of of self-interest with his duties as president has caused his critics to think this will cause him problems because of the emoluments clause of the US Constitution. President Trump’s lawyers disagree saying the emoluments do not apply to him. President Trump added clarification stating

“The law is totally on my side, meaning the President cannot have a conflict of interest.”

Again, he does what he wants. Again, this will allow progress but with an associated cost to those left by the wayside by this juggernaut approach.

11. Conflict looms

It is highly likely that President Trump’s administration will engage in conflict. This seems less likely with Russia (although of course his critics will continue to maintain that he is some kind of pro-Russian stooge being worked by Putin) but more likely with China. The US is the world’s dominant power. President Trump wishes to reduce the US’s role as the world’s policeman and adopt a more isolationist approach. This will occur and will be done for several reasons, one of which is to address the fact that China is a rising power. History shows that major conflicts are always triggered by the appearance of a rising power and the dominant power’s need to maintain dominance. One might regard this as an obvious response and one of self-defence, but add to that the fact that the Commander-in-Chief’s narcissistic self-defence mechanism to remain dominant and superior in everything, it makes for a flammable situation. Already President Trump’s tweet about Taiwan’s ruler congratulating his election ruffled Chinese feathers and the Chinese will not sit idly by if Taiwan is interfered with. Strong talking from President Trump is likely to lead to conflict between the US and China although the scale of such conflict is difficult to gauge.

Similarly, President Trump’s stance with regards to Muslim refugees, ISIS and most recently Syria will result in US intervention in the Middle East. He will maintain a firm stance against ISIS and terrorism which will maintain popularity with his supporters but will naturally irritate in various degrees the countries of the Middle East.

President Trump will put himself first which means by extension the US will come first. The two concepts are inextricably linked and this will cause tensions and conflict overseas but will bring with it populism and patriotic support.

There is much more that might be written about what the future holds. President Trump will continue to be supported by many who see him as the catalyst that the US has been waiting for and if this means cracking a few eggs along the way, then so be it. Nobody can deny he is a man of success – wealthy, President, famous – and that is because of his inherent narcissism which has driven him to achieve all of this.

He will have made opponents in business and now those opponents are lining up in academia, the media, politics, (national and international) and on the street in protests. This will not concern him as it is all fuel to him. Love him, hate him, but never ignore him. There will be those who will now be compiling a dossier of transgressions with a view to impeaching him in due course. The attempt will be made but he will survive it. This is because as one of our kind, President Trump is designed and engineered to survive. He will always have supporters and even his detractors will fuel him and cause him to continue. He has before and this will not change.

He must remain in control. He must remain the one with the whip hand. He has to be superior and everything about him is programmed to bring that about. He will achieve much and will cause division but that does not concern him. He will be challenged many times but he will have to be dragged out of the White House before he will go anywhere else and of course before that will happen one must have regard to the others of our kind who have a vested interested in one of the brethren operating in this rudimentary, obvious and effective manner. They will protect their investment. We always do.

  1. That New York Yankee chant, “WHO’S YOUR DADDY!” needs an update, considering Trump.

    To me, it is now – “Who’s your pimp, Daddy?”

  2. Jared Kushner looks like the devil to me.

    (if the devil were able to take the form of a human being?)

    Thoughts?

  3. As a Christian, I am wanting to voice my displeasure of the Middle East “Peace Plan” –

    Our voices and opinions are not being heard.

    No one has even asked for them.

    They should.

  4. HOW can we have Jared Kushner removed from the White House NOW??? (also Ivanka Trump Kushner)

    Does anyone know?

  5. Hi HG,

    President Donald J. Trump’s son-in-law/business partner/Senior Adviser Jared Kushner gives me the creeps

    Jared Kushner’s arrogant “Peace Plan” for Israel is embarrassing for America. ( Israel needs to grow up.).

    President Donald J. Trump and his Kushner relations, business partners and long-time friends (including Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu) have been and will continue to ALL profit at the expense of people who cannot fight back. and do not have a voice (speaking specifically of “The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” signed into law by President Donald J. Trump on December 22, 2019 – thereby creating a business vehicle for his Kushner relations (Jared Kusher, Joshua “Josh” Kushner, Charles Kushner)< George Soros, etc..to create businesses like Cadre (partially owned by Jared Kushner ==== Jared Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump Kushner are Senior Advisers (UNELECTED) to the President of the United States. Again == UNELECTED..

    I want an accounting of the wealth that they have all accumulated as a result of President Donald J. Trump signing whatever crap crosses his desk! THEY ARE CROOKS!!!

    Jared Kushner's father, Charles Kushner, does not impress me, either (he spent one (1) year in prison).

    Jared Kushner's brother, Joshua "Josh" Kushner seems to fit into the Kushner clan perfectly.

    The Kushner brothers' wives seem like robots to me.

    Jared Kushner looks evil.

    What do you think about all or any of this, HG??

  6. Hi HG,

    Have you noticed that the “elites” in Washington, D.C. are using this impeachment show to distract us from the fact that Netanyahu (Israel’s current Prime Minister) and his rival for that position – are NOW in Washington, D.C. working on a “Peace Plan” for Palestine and Israel??? (only good for Israel – NOT Palestine)

    The people that control the media in MY country (The United States of America) are in the same group as the “elites” in Washington, D.C. and Trump’s friends and family (including Netanyahu).

    The cable news have NOT told us about this!!!!!!

    They are ALL on the payroll!!!

    There is NOTHING that I can do about it. These filthy people are ruining the world.

    What are your thoughts?

    Thank you!

      1. Hi Renarde,

        The U.S. is obsessed with Palestine because the jews have infiltrated this once proud and great country and they SUCK the air and life out of everything here ever since they washed ashore, uninvited and uglying up the place.

        THEY are the “deep state” and Trump is a one of them – his family is jew. The guy in Iran is right!!!

        These ugly fuckers (they wish) are trying to start World War III. Hopefully, the Muslims can ignore them and not allow their buttons to be pushed by these gross, vile filth of “human beings”.

        1. Kate

          Hmm. Your last paragraph shows a STUNNING lack of Empathy and I for one will call it for what it is; blatant anti-semitism.

          There is only one ugly thing here and it’s your deeply vile, hypocritical views.

        2. Kate: Muslim and Jews are cousins, not just traditionally (Ishmael and Isaac) but also genetically. Patients needing donor organs and families of organ donors are frequently shocked to find that someone from the opposite side of the feud is the closest match: often closer than an immediate family member. That’s right: your worst enemy just saved your son’s life, or your sister lives on in the body of someone you thought you were suppose to hate.

          Even the languages have cognates. “Allah” corresponds to the ancient Hebrew “El,” “Abbas” and “Abba” both mean father, and so on.

          Wiser heads than mine have attempted to solve the political situation in the Middle East, but it won’t be managed by pretending they are different breeds or species.

        3. Wow, HG. I cannot believe you let this comment through. This blog is mostly free of racism, anti-Semitism and irrational hatreds of every kind but if it is not going to stay that way, I am outta here. Ditto if you let this person stay. I draw the line at comments like this.

          1. Making a point. Several actually. You should see what lands in my inbox, makes comments like these pale by comparison.

          2. You mean you are making a point by letting that comment through so we can read it? Or the poster is making a point? I have a pretty high tolerance for idiocy but I don’t have a high tolerance for hatred (except towards narcs :)). This person should be banned but hey, it’s your blog. God knows what you get in your inbox. I can only imagine.

          3. Allowing it so you can read it, understand the nature of such comment and indeed exercise your right to respond to it.

          4. Yes well if I hadn’t by chance seen the other posts I wouldn’t have a context for it – that is, I wouldn’t know what sort of mind it came from, but now I have and I do. Personally, I don’t like to be around that sort of ugliness and I won’t take the time to refute it because there is no arguing with people who think that way. Where to even begin. It’s not something that I want to have to deal with on here so I will let others deal with it. Maybe I am over-sensitive but I’ve been noticing a lot of microaggressions towards BAME people in Londontown lately and am on heightened alert. I almost intervened on the tube the other day but was afraid to open my American mouth. It’s dangerous.

          5. I’ve reminded her previously that while entitled to opinion, that this is a blog about narcissism and not racist rants. Invited that if she wishes to continue to offend, that she do so at least on topic. She has disregarded and prefers to:

            1. Demonstrate an entitlement to spread racism.

            2. Highlight low intelligence in ignoring the fact that HG does not respond to her “what do you think HG?” queries and continues with them.

            3. Showcase and underscore spectacularly the fact that there is a huge hole in her marble bag.

          6. I must admit that I don’t know how that comment relates to narcissism, but there must be a connection or I do not believe you would have let it through. Maybe it’s the whole package but again, it was only by chance that I saw the rest of it and there are plenty of other ways to teach us.

          7. Oh, I just noticed the Soros obsession from October. Somehow I missed that! I guess the comment needs to be contextualized in the poster’s conspiracy rants and offense at being called Sister Mary Kate and something about her friend’s mother. Okay then.

          8. I’m sure the comments in HG’s inbox would be entertaining. Can’t imagine the pictures he can’t unsee.

          9. HG:

            I find many things about you fascinating, but I’d just as soon NEVER see some of the things in your inbox. Considering some of the things you have let through for our edification, I am actively trying to restrain myself from imagining the ones you thought unfit for our consumption….

          10. That is a sensible position to adopt. I may write about the inbox in the future, purely with regard to the narcissists that appear there striving (and failing) to get my attention.

          11. HG:
            I have never before been accused of behaving sensibly.
            I learn new things here every day!

          12. SMH
            These comments remind me of my IRL narcissists. The illegals, the Jews, the Pollacks, the Gays, the Eye-talians, and the A-rabs are always up to no good.

          13. K, My IRL narcs would never. They are not THOSE kind of narcs. But I guess all we have to do is listen to Trump for an example.

          14. SMH
            Most of mine are lessers. They make comments such as “The Coloreds are up to no good, as well.”

          15. K:

            The Business Communications majors. Oh, they may look just like everybody else, but underneath those corporate casual outfits….

          16. K (aka Lady Narchivist):

            Where are the Sister Mary Kate and Soros threads, please?

          17. Violetta
            Great news! You are already on the thread. There are 183 comments so far.

            Use the shortcut Control/Command (mac) F and type keys words: sister Mary Kate into the search bar on the upper right and then George Soros and it will highlight all the comments for you. Enjoy the reading!

          18. Violetta, I believe I found them further up on this post – dated October. If you search on ‘Soros’ you should find them.

          19. On a Narcissist note, the Senate just acquitted Trump on his impeachment. Even a Lesser can somehow be powerful and dangerous.

          20. Wow what am I reading here? The racial comment are disgusting in itself but she kind of went nutso in all of her post in September. I can’t even follow her thought process. I guess it’s fitting considering who the article is about.

          21. K & SMH:

            Thanks. Will read and return.

            Btw, from what was described in testimony, Weinstein may have hypospadia, where the urethra opens not on the tip of the penis, but somewhere on the shaft. The farther up it is, the more difficult it is to treat.

            Hitler may also have had it. Psychopathy certainly makes strange bedfellows…in a manner of speaking.

          22. K and SMH:

            Oh dear.

            If there’s anything made clear in this blog, it’s that no group has a monopoly on Narcissism. They can be any religion or no religion; they can be any ethnicity or a mix; they can be any gender or non-binary. They come from all levels of education (including none).

            I used to envy fictional psychopaths like Rhoda Penmark (Bad Seed) or Cathy Ames (East of Eden) because of their ability to manipulate people and their apparent lack of inner conflict. The truth is, the real ones aren’t always criminal masterminds, like iconic characters Hannibal Lector, Dexter, or Raymond Reddington. I saw a news item about one low-functioning specimen, who cut the corners of $20 bills and glued them over $1 bills. During sentencing, he got fewer comments about his dishonesty than he drew for being a dimwit: the judge said something like, “Mr. So-and-so, in my blah-blah years on the bench, you have to be the dumbest criminal I have ever seen! Did you seriously believe that–” etc.

            It would be convenient if Narcs had easily distinguished signs, like antennae growing out their butts that belted “I Love to Sing-a,” or ancestors who originated in Innsmouth and Arkham. Unfortunately, they are Pod People. They look like everybody. There are hideous ones like Weinstein and gorgeous ones like Amber Heard. There are those who are nondescript.

            All we can do to identify them is watch how they interact.

          23. Violetta
            You will find higher functioning psychopaths and narcissists in Washington D.C. and NYC (think Wall Street) but
            most are just ordinary vanilla narcissists and you can usually figure them out by the words that they use.

            Mine are ALWAYS the victims and it’s NEVER their fault and there is usually some rigamarole/drama involved in their lives.

          24. SMH

            Just coming on to say a few things.

            First is, well done on standing up for your principles and saying it like it is. You are absolutely correct to say, ‘This far and no further’. That takes courage and I greatly respect you for that.

            The second is a bit of a ‘Mea Culpa’ from me. I hope that you know that I am not ‘Karing Kate’ but I am partially responsible for this. I deliberately provoked this person. Just to get the reaction.

            When I came onto this thread a few days ago, ‘Kate’s’ response which I replied to was at the top. I provoked WITHOUT READING the rest of its comments to HG. The ones which it threw at HG as to his RL identity.

            I tested. Not as a test Hoover. I tested to further my own understanding of NPD. And I called it. Correctly.

            The danger in the test of course is that I couldn’t be sure precisely what the response would be. Like you, I was also shocked that they would respond in such a forthright manner. A manner which not only offended my principles but clearly yours too. For that, I am sorry.

            In my time I have been variously called the following:

            Irish
            Italian
            French
            Portuguese
            Spanish

            And of couse, Jewish.

            I am white, British. I can trace both sides back at least 4 generations if not more. No ‘Johnny Foreigner’ that I can see.

            HG has been and still is, the very best teacher I’ve ever had. I would go on step further and assert that he is the best teacher any of us have ever had.

            HG has many reasons for doing this. I can only hazard a guess at some of the more esoteric ones. So the question is, was HG correct to not moderate the anti-semitic comment?

            In my opinion, he was right to allow the comment to mine stand. The very BEST teachers allow their students to explore in their own way. My perception is that this is what has happened. How amazing is that?

            Please, dear lady, do not leave because my own fractious nature, my own intellectual curiosity got the better of me.

            None of us can know how many people are lurking on here. Reading our words and by that fact, helping others that have been abused.

            You are a valued contributor.

            Again, please accept my apologies.

          25. Renarde, Thank you for your explanation. I did not think it was you. I should go back and read the thread to truly understand but to be honest, I don’t have the energy. Real life is exhausting enough and I don’t want to come here to fight every day battles. I think letting the comment through was unnecessarily provocative – especially in light of the charged political atmosphere in which we are living – and I stand by my position that there are other ways of teaching us – HG has plenty of those up his sleeve. So now everyone knows what will make me leave – not murders, rape, mayhem, personality clashes, bitchiness, ignorance, political idiocy, clothing and make up or general (s)narkiness – nope. Prejudice. I hope to never see anything like those comments on narcsite again.

          26. Flattery will get you nowhere, HG! Kidding. Promise I will get to it. I am just a procrastinator.

          27. HG:

            “Valid observations.”

            Guess where I learned them?
            Three guesses, and the last two don’t count.

            Btw, I tried to read all of the individual in question’s 105 (at last count) posts, to get a larger picture. Every. Single. One.

            I have given up.

            However, my admiration for you as moderator as well as writer now borders on sheer amazement.

          28. NarcAngel:

            4. Does not pick up on conversations. Does not appear to notice when readers as well as HG ignore the bait and continue to talk.about manifestations of Narcissism wherever they appear.

            5. Knows sod-all about NY politics or the charity circuit. Fred Trump would gladly have donated to the Ladies’ Ornithology Association of East Bumblefuck, Long Island and to their hated rivals in West Bumblefuck as long as it gave him the connections needed to expand his real estate empire.

  7. I agree! A lot of the ‘evidence’ and comments on here that are apparently supporting the claim that Trump is a narcissist are not accurate. Taken from the many lies printed by the mainstream media. Trump has explained a thousand times that he welcomes negative media reports IF THEY ARE BASED ON FACTS. But when he speaks of ‘fake news’ he’s taking about false news, lies, fabrications… but each time he explains it, the reporter will twist his words and tell their listeners / readers that Trump only wants positive stories about himself. It’s disgusting. I agree he must have narcissist traits to achieve all he has achieved in his life. However I have been following this whole impeachment bs closely and it is clear to me that it’s not Trump that anyone should be worried about. It’s the rich and powerful democrats who are trying to bring him down in order to keep their own corruption hidden from public scrutiny. The problem is, until the media start reporting facts instead of pushing their own narratives, people will continue to believe the lies about Trump because they can’t be bothered to go and find the original source of his quotes etc.

    1. Natalie Natalie

      Facts: Trump is a Narc

      Lots of Democrats are Narcs. Ditto Repulicans.

      Politicians are largely Narcs.

      I know. It’s difficult. Apparently I’ve heard HG has a lot of books that you can read. On a device imported from China. A Kindle I believe it’s called?

      Those trade agreements would go down very well between the US and China if only that swine Putin would stop getting in the way!

  8. Very insightful. You’ve verbalized my own thoughts on the subject. I also feel that both political parties, as wholes, are very narcissistic, but especially democrats who literally cannot imagine people thinking differently than they do.

    Ultimately, knowing that narcissistic personalities tend to accumulate power and wealth, I’m not too worried about the president.

    So, would you, personally, revel in a powerful political position or steer clear of it because of the hassle? Seems like there are much more enjoyable ways to garner and exert power.

    1. I straddle both worlds and thus have the best of both. Thanks for your observation and I am pleased you found the article insightful.

  9. I wonder how many of our elected officials in the United States of America are on the payroll?

    I want names.

    1. Hi HG,

      Did you know that on December 22, 2017, President Donald Trump signed into law :

      The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (131 Stat. 2054) ?

      I hope that Congress finds a way to repeal this piece of work.

      I wonder if it has affected you or anyone you know who is not a United States Citizen. Did you know that you also have a right to appeal to Congress, if so? You can use the link that I provided on an earlier comment by me to read the Foreign Affairs roles of Congress (I remember that it was the last one on the list, but I do not know the process).

      This law has International Trade Issues, Conflicts of Interest, Budget Deficit and Debt issues, as well as Environmental impact — and has been exploited for what appears to be ENORMOUS financial gains by the Trump and Kushner families (I hope that Congress will look for the proof and hold them accountable). If not, the exploitation by these families, their allies, business partners and “friends” could continue well into the future – with HUGE problems for countless people now and into the future.

      The “Impeachment Inquiry” regarding that phone call with a Ukranian seems (to me) to be a distraction from what are REAL reasons to impeach this fraudulent Administration of CROOKS (in my opinion).

      I am also concerned that Trump’s actions are bringing our American soldiers in harm’s way, as well as affecting people who live in the Middle East, but that is a separate issue (I think). Just more reason to Impeach, though.

      What are your thoughts, HG???

      1. Anyone who is interested..

        Here is a link to read the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 that is so relevant. The important part is buried (of course) – go to around page 137 and look for this:

        SEC.13823. OPPORTUNITY ZONES
        and read it to the end of the document to see what they are doing. It is a lot of complicated tax law, but it spells out their “Plan”. They really worked to hide it – not just that it is on page 137, but also by the way it is typed, without a blank line above the heading OPPORTUNITY ZONES. (I have seen tricky lawyer speak before and their presentation style.)

        https://www.congress.gov/115/plaws/publ97/PLAW-115publ97.htm

    2. Professor Tudor,

      I found this on the White House website:

      https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/background-press-call-impact-tax-cuts-jobs-act/

      ” …
      CHAIRMAN HASSETT: Okay, yeah, thanks for adding that [senior administration official].

      So next question, if there is one.

      Q Hey, this is Richard Rubin at the Wall Street Journal. On Opportunity Zones, you referenced the wage growth numbers. What’s the sort of logical story for that, given that what we’ve seen so far in Opportunity Zones, is, as you mentioned, property purchases, fundraising from people with capital gains? We haven’t – a lot of these investments, obviously, are long-tail – long-time investments. So what logical connection is there between the zone designations and the wage increases that you’re talking about?””

      CHAIRMAN HASSETT: Yeah, you’re right to point out that we were surprised at how quickly the wage numbers headed up …”

      I found this to be VERY interesting!

      What do you think, HG?

    3. Hello Professor Tudor,

      Have you ever seen video of Donald Trump (the 2016 candidate) read the lyrics to “The Snake” at a rally he did while running for President against Hillary Clinton in 2016?

      I am sharing it here:

      https://www.nbc26.com/news/national/trump-reads-lyrics-to-the-snake-at-fort-myers-rally

      It would be so interesting to know what your thoughts are after watching it, and to know who you think Trump (Inc.) is talking about EXACTLY?

      Thank you!

  10. Hi HG,

    Have you ever seen video of Donald Trump’s father or heard what he was like? You can hear President Trump himself talk about his father in past interviews that he has done. There are also video clips of his father.

    I would find it so interesting to hear what Mr. Trump would think of his son and the family / business legacy that he has created using the family name. Any thoughts?

      1. Mr. Trump may be pleased in that their family legacy in America (beginning with his grandfather’s brothel) shows them being here for the purposes of usery, exploitation and greed.

    1. OMG, HG!

      Here is a link to an article from “Breaking Israel News”, dated June 25, 2019 (by Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz). This is the title and part of it:

      “Donald Trump’s father was so dedicated to Israel causes, people thought he was Jewish

      “Donald Trump is arguably the most pro-Israel president in U.S. history and it could be tha the roots of this beneficence towards the Jewish state go deep into the president’s family history….

      Whether to win favor with his Jewish tenants or not, Fred was a noted philanthropist who gave generously to Jewish causes including the Long Island Jewish Hospital. …

      This Trump family tradition of dating to Jewish causes took on a decidedly political twist in the 1908’s when Donald Trump donated heavily to help build new infrastructure for the Israelis removed from the northern Sinai as part of the peace agreement with Egypt. Again, in 2005, Trump generously helped resettle the Jews expelled from Gush Katif. At aout the same time, Trump also donated $10,000 to American Friends of Beit El Institutions, a fund for religious institutions in Samaria.

      It is well-known that Donald Trump has been a long-time friend of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Though this is clearly a manifestation of the strong political alliance between the two countries, it has its roots in the president’s family. Fred Trump, the president’s father, became friends with Netanyahu while he was the Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations in Manhattan.”

      THIS IS ILLEGAL IN MY OPINION.

      SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE, brats! (THIS INCLUDES A SYNAGOGUE.)

      We need someone who knows what to do to do something.

      PLEASE!!!

      1. HG,

        I have some “Breaking American News” for the writer of the above-referenced article (Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz):

        The fraternity that he identifies in his article as Jewish, Sigma Alpha Mu, has a lot of Italian Catholic members (I know them personally).

          1. I have “News” (It was to me):

            Donald Trump’s Great-Grandfather’s surname was Christ.

            Donald Trump’s father, Fred Trump had good reason to thank his mother for his success. She was quite a woman, Elizabeth Christ, and no one talks about her in the Trump family. I wish that they would.

          1. Did you hear the Good News, Professor Tudor??

            They found a hidden treasure!

            On September 24th, I heard the news from the television that a painting titled “Christ Mocked” by Italian master, Cimabue was “found” in a small town north of Paris, France”.*

            The Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, France burned on April 15, 2019 (the day after Palm Sunday). Easter came 6 days after that. Anyway, not that long ago..

            I got curious, found this information on the internet and wanted to share in case it is of interest to you or anyone else:

            Cimabue (a.k.a. Cenni Di Peopo or Cenni di Pepi) was an early Renaissance artist and he probably died around 1302 in Pisa, Italy. This long-lost masterpiece (“Christ Mocked”) was “found” a few months ago and will be auctioned October 27, 2019 in France.

            There are only ten (10) known works existing by Cimabue – this is RARE!!!

            “Christ Mocked” is part of a set of three. The other two scenes from the set are in the National Gallery in London – and the other one is in the Frick Collection in New York.

            “Christ Mocked” is now on display in the National Gallery in London.

            Are you going to go and see it, HG??!!!

          2. HG,

            This is old News, but it is still Good News!

            When the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, France burned on April 15-16, 2019*, the precious relic, The Crown of Thorns, was found to be unharmed..

            * referring to a comment below this one (I sent to you on September 27, 2019) – about the September 24, 2019 announcement of the painting “Christ Mocked” being discovered just north of Paris, France probably around the same time as the Notre-Dame fire.

            “Christ Mocked” by Italian early renaissance master, Cimabue shows Jesus being “crowned” by a group of his fellow Jewish people.

            Cimabue (a.k.a. Cenni Di Pepo or Cenni di Pepi) died in Pisa, Italy. The leaning Tower of Pisa started leaning during Cimabue’s lifetime. It is a bell tower and part of Pisa’s Cathedral Square.

            It is so strange that Donald Trump’s father’s mother was Elizabeth Christ Trump because her maiden name is Christ and all that this means to me. WHY do they deny her?

            Sorry if I am boring you with all of this, but I find it fascinating and thought someone other than myself would, too.

          3. Kate

            I don’t think you’re whipping up much of a lather of intetest here. The subject is narcissism. Maybe try something in that area.

          4. HG,

            Have you heard the news that Representative Adam Schiff (Democrat for California), Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, on September 25, 2019 tweeted, “The transcript of the call reads like a classic mob shakedown: – We do a lot for Ukraine – There’s not much reciprocity – I have a favor to ask – Investigate my opponent – My people will be in touch – Nice country you got there. It would be a shame if something happened to her.”

            I got this from an NBC News article with the title, “Lawmakers React to Text of Trump’s Ukraine call: ‘A Classic Mob Shakedown’.

            You can watch the video of Adam Schiff from September 25, 2019 and read the article with the link below:

            https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/classic-mob-shakedown-lawmakers-react-summary-trump-s-ukraine-call-n1058631

            These people need to re-watch the following:

            1. “The Godfather” trilogy,

            2. “Goodfellas” and

            3. the entire series of “The Sopranos”

            From what I can tell, it seems like a person cannot be a part of the Italian Mafia unless they are “in the family”, and therefore, a person CANNOT buy their way in.

            Perhaps Trump is in the Jewish Mafia – they probably take several forms of payment.

          5. HG,

            The link below is for the cover story of “Forbes” magazine from February 28, 2019 (with these words on the cover:

            “WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE… ”

            https://www.forbes.com/sites/nathanvardi/2019/01/31/ryan-williams-30-started-a-revolutionary-800m-fintech-but-he-cant-escape-his-kushner-trump-connection/#7b72b5586f0a

            Of interest to me was the following:

            “… Williams developed and incubated the Cadre concept with Jared and his brother, Josh. …

            Donald Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner co-founded Cadre while running his family’s real estate business. He kept a stake when he went to the White house …

            Williams has accumulated… backers with ties to the current Trump era. .

            … Over the past two years, Trump has busted a lot of norms, many derived from emoluments issues and a family which continues to own wide-ranging business interests while leading the federal government. …

            … in 2012, Congress had passed the Jobs Act, which, among other things, allowed online portals to crowdfund real estate. …

            A friend of Ryan Williams since their Harvard days, Josh Kushner and his Thrive Capital helped launch Cadre and he still sits on its board. …

            Jared Kushner’s decision to retain a stake in Cadre … his failure– inadvertent, he says — to disclose his stake on his initial federal financial forms …

            … Cadre recently launched an investment program to take advantage of the opportunity-zone tax breaks, which the White House put in motion. … Ivanka Trump’s involvement with the implementation of opportunity zones as a possible violation of the federal conflict-of-interest laws. In her financial statements, it noted, Trump had promised to recuse herself from issues that “would have a direct and predictable effect on Cadre” because of her husband’s ownership position.

            … By not shedding his assets to take the biggest job in the world, the billionaire president flouts all sorts of clear conflict-of-interest and emoluments norms, down to ticky-tack spending by lobbyists and potentates at Trump’s hotel in D.C. and his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. The near-billionaire secretary of commerce Wilbur Ross has lied and bumbled his way into insider trading accusations and a reprimand from the federal government’s top ethics officer. Tycook Carl Icahn took a role as special advisor to the president while remaining in charge of his massive investment firm.

            (After this story published, Cadre emphasized that Kushner’s lawyer has said that Kushner’s continuing passive ownership in Cadre “was reviewed and approved by the Office of Government Ethics.”)”

            The writer of this article really did his research! We are so lucky that there are reporters who report the facts. I think he makes it easy to see a network of Narcissists.

            What do you think, HG???

  11. I believe that the goal of this global network is to get everyone everywhere to turn on each other with hate in our hearts … so that we kill each other (including our unborn) – leaving only those “elites” to enjoy what was given to all.

    These brats do not know how to play nicely with their fellow human beings.

    They do NOT see us as human beings.

            I am attaching a link to a Wall Street Journal article dated May 15, 2018 regarding Mrs. DeVos’ activities. Below is a partial quote:

            “U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos made her first visit to a New York City school while in office on Tuesday, touring an Orthodox Jewish school for girls on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. She plans to see a boys’s yeshiva on Wednesday.

            Mrs. DeVos’s decision to skip public schools in the nation’s largest district, with 1.1 million students, upset some public-school advocates.”

            * The University of Pennsylvania was founded by Benjamin Franklin and is in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where the Constitution of the United States was signed, where The Liberty Bell resides — and unfortunately for America, is also alma mater of President Trump AND Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu – did you know that they are friends?)

            Thank you, Professor Tudor, for letting me speak (FREE Speech, it is in The Constitution of the United States of America, and THEY will not take it from us!)

            We will NOT stand down!

        2. HG,

          Are you Mark Esper, the Secretary of Defense currently for The United States of America in the Donald J. Trump administration?

          1. Yes, between 6am and 10am every other Saturday, then it’s Nicholas Cage’s turn.

          2. Kate,
            No way is he an American Politician. What made you come to that conclusion?
            He is obviously European. I did sort of answer my own question a while back ago. I wondered why HG didn’t write about the Jeffrey Epstein scandal. He stated he didn’t have time yet. He did write about Taylor Swift. I find this very safe for him to do so. I am guessing that HG has met Jeffrey Epstein at some point. I do not believe he was apart of his entourage, but I believe that HG knows more about certain topics than what he would have a believe. HG is much younger than Epstein, Bill Clinton, or Donald Trump. But due to HG being in finance, his connections with Americans and Europeans, and being from a certain class, I think it’s a possibility that HG knows more than he will write about.

          3. Kate: I prefer that HG writes only about what he truly feels like writing about. It takes work and time and thought and preparation to write about all these matters that he embarks on. That is all so valuable. But, as long as he stays true to Himself and maintains his control of subject topics, time flies when he is interested in writing about something, I would surmise. I enjoy so much the spirit and enthusiasm in HG`s writing. I become caught up in it. I like that. I am more of a lively learner. And, HG is very lively.

          4. HG,

            Are you Steven Mnuchin, current Secretary of the Treasury for the Donald J. Trump Administration?

            — OR —

            Wilbur Ross, current United States Secretary of Commerce in the Donald J. Trump Administration???

          5. I am Steven between 10 am and 11 am on the second Thursday of every month without a Y in its name.
            I am Wilbur from when Arsenal, Liverpool and Burnley win a Premiership game in the same weekend, until the time any one of those teams play or if Watford score a goal, whichever is the sooner.

          6. Not an American prose style, with our host.

            This is why Meghan Markle’s hand is so obvious in Harry’s supposed statements. Brits simply do not speak or write like that.

      2. Thanks for the laugh, HG!

        This is funny, too – Jared Kushner’s office’s address is #666.

        Okay, that is not funny – but I bet he thinks so!

        1. HG,

          Are you Stephen Miller, President Trump’s Senior Advisor and sometimes Speech Writer (I do not know how much he has written, I just know that he has in the past)?

        2. HG,

          Are you Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Senior Adviser, business partner (?) and the person in charge of the “Peace Plan” between Israel and Palestine?

          I found an article that explains things very well and has other links within it. It is dated September 30, 2019 and is titled “In Media Newspeak, a ‘Peace Plan’ for Israel/Palestine is Anything US Proposes”:

          https://fair.org/home/in-media-newspeak-a-peace-plan-for-israel-palestine-is-anything-us-proposes

          Here are some quotes:

          “Prior to the elections in Israel/Palestine in September – marred by blatant racism posturing as the “democratic process,” with millions of Palestinians living under varying degrees of Israeli rule unable to vote due to their ethnicity — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu generated headlines for repeatedly pledging to annex nearly a third of the illegally occupied West Bank, In violation of International law … (New York Times, 9/10/19). …

          The Washington Post’s “Kushner Presents Vision of a Middle East at Peace but No Details How to Get There” (6/25/19) telling only referred to the Trump administration’s proposal as a “peace plan” in its photo captions, and instead described it as an “economic Plan” or a “White House plan” in the text of the article, when it reported on the economic component of Kushner’s plan to raise “$50 billion in regional investment projects over the next decade.” … has already been “rejected by the Palestinian leadership,” who claim that the US can’t be “an honest peace broker after taking several pro-Israel measures,” such as “recognizing the contested city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.”…

          Others have observed how Kushner’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan resembles a real estate developer’s brochure, mentioning “human capital” and “property rights” without mentioning “human rights”, along with buzzwords like “unleashing economic potential”. Other pro-Israel measures omitted from the article that make it impossible to accept the US as an honest broker include the Trump administration’s support for Israel’s illegal annexation of the Syrian Golan Heights (FAIR.org, 4/4/19), the closure of the Palestinian diplomatic post in Washington, the transfer of the US embassy to Jerusalem and the slashing of aid to Palestinian refugees (Guardian, 6/25/19). …

          That Kushner has never seen the Palestinians as genuine negotiating partners has never been more obvious since he expressed his colonialist dismissal of Palestinians as incapable of self-governance (Axios, 6/2/19) …

          The Los Angeles Times (6/23/19) … offered the assessment of Daniel Benjamin, the director of Dartmouth College’s John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding: “The Trump administration’s policy for the region is to give the Israelis everything that Netanyahu wants and set up a scenario in which the Palestinians are forced to reject it,” thus providing the White House with “the excuse it needs to continue a basically punitive policy towards the Palestinians,” he said. …

          The New York Times (6/1/19) … observed that Trump planned to “throw his full weight behind Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign to save his job as prime minister of Israel” — without mentioning that Netanyahu is facing multiple indictments for corruption. …

          How could a genuine peace agreement be reached when the officials in charge of the plan, like Kushner, US ambassador to Israel David Friedman and former chief negotiator Jason Greenblatt, were all supportive of and bankrolling Israel’s illegal settlements, and have overseen some of the most punitive anti-Palestinian measures in US history (Jacobin, 7/9/19)? How could peace be achieved when the staunchly pro-Israel US plan involved approving Netanyahu’s plan to annex parts of the West Bank considered to be the “food basket” of Palestinians and rendering a viable Palestinian state impossible by fragmenting it into isolated enclaves within Israel (Intercept, 9/11/19)? …

          Whichever path one favors, it should be clear that in media Newspeak, “peace plan” is a propaganda term that only refers to whatever Washington is proposing at any given time.”

          HG, I know that you are not really Jared Kushner, I am just being silly in a very serious situation (to raise awareness). Thank you for letting me share this information!

        3. HG,

          Are you Ryan Williams, Cadre CEO and Co-Founder, and college friend of Josh Kushner?

          — OR —

          Are you possibly Joshua (“Josh”) Kushner* , Cadre Co-Founder (and many other things) ?

          I found this to share (June 10, 2019, from TheRealDeal Real Estate News):

          “Kushner-backed Cadre raised $90M through anonymous offshore vehicle cince 2017

          Jared Kushner’s holding in real estate startup valued at up to $50M”

          https://therealdeal.com/national/2019/06/10/kushner-backed-cadre-raised-90m-through-anonymous-offshore-vehicle-since-2017/

          Part of it states, “Cadre has long drawn scrutiny for potential conflicts of interest as its co-founder and special adviser to the president Jared Kushner acts as international envoy overseas.

          … Since Kushner joined the Trump administration in 2017, Cadre has received $90 million in foreign funding through a Cayman Islands-registered entity run by Goldman Sachs, …

          “It is one of the only assets that Kusher retained and it continues to collect foreign investors without transparency, “Virginia Center of watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington said. …

          Kushner, his brother Joshua and Goldman Sachs alum Ryan Williams co-founded Cadre … After entering the White House to serve as an adviser to his father-in-law, President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner kept a stake in the company …

          Kushner’s attorneys say … that his stake in the company is less than 25 percent. According to his most recent financial disclosures, Kushner’s stake is worth between $25 and $50 million. [The Guardian}”

          Wow!

          * Josh Kushner is the brother Jared Kushner, (husband of President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump) , they retained ownership of Cadre when they came into the White House by NONDISCLOSURE (a.k.a. lying) and possibly FRAUD? It may be a marital asset, so owned by both Jared Kusher and his wife, Ivanka Trump they continue to own it while they are both Advisers to their father and father-in-law.

          Talk about keeping it in the family! Right, HG?

          Also not to be forgotten is the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 that President Trump signed into law on December 22, 2017, thereby creating “Opportunity Zones”. (which are supposed to help low-income people to become home-owners, but this tax loophole is instead being used by clients and owners of CADRE (the Kushner brothers and I would suggest a long list of associates – possibly President Trump included?).

          These people need to be REMOVED from office. THESE REALLY ARE HIGH CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, I think there are plenty of intelligent lawyers and investigative reporters who will get to the bottom of it.

          We need our elected officials to stop this. Are they paying attention?

          What do you think about ALL of this, HG??

      1. Anm and Desiree,

        We have NO IDEA who is behind the name “HG Tudor”.

        We do not know his name.

        Who do not know his age.

        We do not know what he does beyond this fantastic blog, books, consultations, etc.

        We do not know what he looks like or where he lives.

        We do not know that he knows Jeffrey Epstein or works in finance or any other field.

        We only know what he he tells us, and he has told us that he lies, so why should we believe his claims?

        Right, HG??

        1. Wrong.

          I have told you that I do not lie in this place because I do not need to.

          I use lies in my personal life because that is necessary.

          1. Thank you for answering, HG!!

            How exciting for us that you are being truthful here!!!

            I am hoping that you can answer some basic questions of interest..

            1. Do any of your names start with “H”, “G” and / or “T”?

            2. Is your name really Tudor?

            3. Or is it a code for having red hair??

            4. What age are you approximately?

            5. Do you live on a family estate situation with other family members?

            6. Are they still following you around? How’s about right now?

            Also, pictures would be nice. Haha. I am a very curious person and hope you are not angered by my questions!

            I hope that you are having a nice day and are willing to answer the above.

            Thank you!

            F.Y.I. – I wrote to Nancy Pelosi* today (with the link that I provided here), so am feeling quite pleased with myself, which emboldened me to ask you questions!

            *(referring to my interest and comments about hoping to see President Trump impeached for laws passed by his Administration to enrich his business dealings in New York / Israel / the Trump family / the Kushner family / long-standing personal ties to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu / “land grabs” by Israel and endorsed by Trump / the “Peace Plan” between Israel and Palestine that only represents the Jewish people – and the comments on these subjects on this post)

          2. 1. Yes.
            2. No..
            3. No.
            4. Approximately between 1-100
            5. No.
            6. Right now. No.

            That’s your allocation.

        2. Kate
          With regards to that comment of mine you answered, I was making a joke referring to the previous thread. With regards to your opinion on the information HG shares with us here, I have no reason to assume he lies here, it would serve him no purpose. What are you hoping to gain from not relying on the information he has provided you with? If you don’t trust him to be truthful in this regard, you are free to go elsewhere.

  12. I forgot to post the link to articles about Obama suing to cancel the woman’s trademark, Higher Ground so that he could have it and her lawyer calling Obama’s actions as deplorable and not consistent with the values that he preach.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2019/09/11/arts/television/the-obamas-want-higher-ground-someone-got-there-first.amp.html

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/barack-obamas-production-company-runs-a-trademark-problem-1236219

    1. MommyPino,

      People who so entranced by the packaging and the use of the word “Hope”.

      Barack Obama, brought to you by George Soros!

      1. Hi Kate, I was one of those who voted for Obama because of his message of hope. He had an amazing speech in 2008 that sealed my vote where he said that there will be no black America and no white America. He sold a vision to me and I bought it. Then he became president and he made a lot of remarks that highlighted the differences in race and instead of driving for everyone to love forward in unison, he was demonizing groups that he blamed as a whole for the atrocities that African Americans endured. I agree that things are not fair for them even now and slavery is absolutely evil. But the way that his rhetoric made a lot of people feel is that a white boy who was not even born twenty years ago is responsible for slavery and accountable to an African American boy who was never a slave. Does that mean that I should also pay for the sins of my mother for seducing my dad who was married? How is it acceptable to make people pay for the sins that they had no part in? And the hatred against cops just really got so out of hand that a lot of violence against cops have been perpetrated while Obama was president. My cousin’s husband is a white cops and he’s one of the nicest people that anybody can ever meet. And also his attacks against Christians were ridiculous. In my opinion, Obama’s biggest legacy as a president was getting Trump elected because of bullying several sectors of our society.
        Ironically, the person who owns the trademark, Higher Ground that Obama wants to take from is a woman and an African American. She belongs to the group of people that Obama claims to protect. I guess he protects them as long as they don’t have anything that he wants. I hope that her lawyer defending her against Obama’s legal attack is helping her pro bono. I would feel bad if she is spending a lot of money on legal fees just because Obama wants to have the name of her business.

      2. Professor Tudor,

        I think that EVERY elected official in the United States of America that got rich when their salary does NOT makes sense with their wealth (including the OBAMAS and the CLINTONS, as well as BERNIE SANDERS), should be facing trial and if found guilty of whatever the exact crime is, maybe TREASON (?), should give all of their wealth – to the U.S. debt, which is STAGGERING!

        SERVING is NOT a usually a way to get rich.

        Do you have any thoughts?

        1. Dear Kate

          Your dogged refusal to not accept that answers from HG were forthcoming has left me crying with laughter today.

          My personal thoughts are that you are a loon.

          Dont take it personally. I’m a fully subscribed member to The Monster Raving Loony Party.

          Ren

          P.S I lied about the last statement.

  13. HG, recently the Obamas launched their production company, Higher Ground. Through this company they have produced the documentary film, American Factory which is going to be aired on Netflix. Their trademark Higher Ground was not approved though because someone else is already using the name Higher Ground. A woman have been using the name Higher Ground Enterprises for years as a computer training business. The Obamas now have sued for her trademark to be canceled so that they can have the name. Her lawyer said this about the Obamas, “The Obamas have known for almost a year that their Higher Ground trademark application was rejected by the USPTO because it infringed my client’s rights, instead of simply picking another name, the Obamas’ lawyers have now filed a meritless petition to cancel my client’s trademark so they can take it for themselves. This is really deplorable behavior. I hope that the Obamas realize that these actions are not consistent with the values they preach and that they instruct their attorneys to immediately dismiss the petition.”
    This clearly demonstrates Obama’s entitlement, lack of empathy, and hypocrisy which manifest his narcissism. I’m not putting this here to offend his supporters. I just want to show his narcissism because I know that he has such a great facade that a lot of people have a hard time accepting that he is a narcissist.

  14. I cant stand that peckerhead! Sorry to ant trump supporters but the day hes no longer president is the day i will throw a party! Oddly i used to watch the apprentice and could stomach him but now 🤢

  15. Trump just signed an executive order giving him control of the weather. He is insane. His narcissism is insane. Guess what his next executive order will be- to stay the president forever, mark my words.

    1. Kel, it’s fake news. It’s a satirical joke written by a comedian Andy Borowitz. I understand how it could not be seen as a joke though because it wasn’t funny, the comedian wasn’t good at all.

      1. Mommypino
        The sharpie loop over Alabama wasn’t fake news. Trump is the last person who should term anything as “Fake News” since he’s the one who spreads it more than anyone, which for narcissists is known as “projection” and “gaslighting”. Funny though that SATIRE is believable when discussing Trump, as the Sharpie drawing was Truth, and absolutely, honestly, insane. Can I get the 25th?!

        1. Kel, fair enough. I now understand where the satirical joke came from. Thanks for expanding. The 25th though, no you may not have it lol. Trump is here to stay until the end of his term and he may even get a second term. I watched the Democratic debate and I didn’t see anyone who could beat him right now. Although things can change very rapidly in politics so I’m still crossing my fingers. I think that most of those Democratic candidates are narcs as well.

          About ‘fake news’, I agree. And I feel the same way when Obama uses the term and Hillary blamed her loss in the elections on fake news. Trump just gets to mention the term more because he currently has the podium but they all do it.

          1. Mommypino
            They do not all use the term “fake news”. That’s a Trump exclusive. Hillary did not blame her loss on the news. The Democrats are not a good comparison to trump at all, and you shouldn’t have to mention them when you’re defending him. He should be able to stand on his own two legs, and own his own actions. But ok, fair enough, I’m not too crazy about anyone running either, but IMO any of them on either side, Democrat or Republican, will be a vast improvement. 💕

          2. Hi Kel, I have actually heard ‘fake news’ for the first time from Obama. I am adding a link (a) below on the article where Obama used it. But I have also heard him use it before he left office in other instances but I couldn’t find an article on all of them right now. Hillary indirectly blamed ‘fake news’ for her loss. I am also leaving a link (b) to an article with her quote. But I agree that’s Trump have been using it much too much and more than anybody else. I know that we both wish for a truly empathic and strong leader to come along and hopefully it will happen. It just seems like narcissistic traits are more rewarding to have if you are a politician right now and it makes it hard for the non-NPD politicians to stay.

            (b) https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/blogs-trending-42724320

          3. Mommypino

            Let me correct myself in that Trump popularized the term Fake News, although he did of course give himself the credit for having invented the phrase at one point, but he really just popularized it to the point it was added to the dictionary. Without taking the point of it all out of context that this particular narcissist has overused the phrase to the detriment of democracy by pretty much implying only Fox News tells it right, which is laughable. If another news organization states anything unbiased that runs against his narcissistic image, he colors them black and labels them fake. It’s dangerous. It’s very possible there’s been legitimate fake news against him and other politicians, but not to the degree and multitude of times he has claimed.

            If he’s going to do something good, I wish he’d go ahead and do it. We’re all open to it. If not, then just leaving will suffice.

          4. Hi Kel, Trump is a narcissist so he will take credit for everything that he likes. I believe that Obama was the first person that I have heard it from the news on TV, then Hillary. Obama was warning people before the elections to not believe fake news that are being propagated against Hillary. Although the articles that I gave you shows that Hillary used it first. I can’t find a written article that documented what I saw on TV. I looked up the history of fake news and apparently the term has been used by politicians even long before Trump was born. If I will rely on my memory, I will give Obama the credit of bringing back the term ‘fake news’ into modern usage and evolving it into something that is spread through the internet technology which was not available in the early days that ‘fake news’ term was first used.
            Regarding Trump doing good things, we have different perceptions obviously lol. But I think I’ll just stick to where we agree wishing better people will come to lead our country and I hope the same thing happens to other countries. 😊💕

          5. MP
            Don’t give Obama so much credit. I’m sure you can find some fake news mentions and Enemy’s of the Peoples stuff from President Nixon too.

            I second your emotion of looking towards a more harmonious future for the US and all! 😊💕

    1. Hi HG,

      I have been thinking a lot about Israel and wonder if you can answer the following…

      What does Israel require for Citizenship?

      If we are to believe that God promised that specific land to a specific group of people, then shouldn’t the people applying for Citizenship need to prove that they are actual members of that specific group?

      Does Israel require DNA / genetic proof that a person is an ACTUAL descendant of Abraham (is he the right person?)?

      Or am I correct in believing that the rules are that the person applying for Citizenship to Israel need only to have converted to the religion of Judaism (or that their anscestors were the ones who converted to Judaism)?

      It seems to me that if God promised that land to ABRAHAM’s DESCENDANTS, then most of the residents of Israel are committing FRAUD and their actions are CRIMINAL in nature.

      Personally, I would not go there because I cannot imagine a more hostile and unwelcoming place – which is TRULY SINFUL. (in my opinion)

      What are your thoughts or knowledge of this?

      Thank you!

      1. HG,

        Can you imagine if Christians were “allowed” to have a land for themselves? THAT would be called racist.

        Why isn’t what Israel is doing considered racist? Or WORSE?

        WHY are we supposed to believe that God favors them?

        WHY are we supposed to believe that God tells us to hate one another?

        WHY are we supposed to believe that God tells us to kill one another? That is not the God that I know.

        The behavior that I have seen personally throughout my lifetime by this group has been consistently HATEFUL (with a minority of exceptions, but even those have been deceptive with me and used me – or tried and FAILED).

        WHY are we supposed to believe the words of KNOWN LIARS, thieves and murderers?? How dumb are we? As dumb as they think we are??? They are constantly telling us that they are the most intelligent people alive. Why are we allowing ourselves to be used, abused and victimized by the ULTIMATE VICTIM NARCISSISTS??

        Iran is a “Muslim state” (I think). I feel that this is their right.

        I have no problem with there being a place for Jewish people, either, not that they care about my opinion. I have seen and can imagine the hateful looks on their hateful faces. I have seen too much of them. I have had more than enough. There seems to be no escape, even at the gym…

        I believe that no one but God can own Jerusalem and it should be a place for EVERYONE to feel welcome. It is hateful towards God for people to think that they are His favorites, that they decide which religion is the “right” one, that they can hate or kill other people because we are all created by Him.
        If we hate one another, we are not acting like God, we are acting like the devil. If we kill a person, then we are killing a child of God.

        There should NOT be an American Embassy or any national flag in this HOLY PLACE (Jerusalem)…

        Not that the Israel is open to suggestions from “outsiders”. To them, my thoughts and opinion are worthless. They do what they want. At all times. Wherever they go, they show up and act like they own the place (my country, the United States of America is included, as well as Europe). They are always enshrining themselves and their ancestors’ gory deaths all over the world. Everyone is expected (by them) to BEND OVER and take it. Not me. Try that, asshole, and you will find yourself cockless.

        No one on earth seems able to “allow” Christians to have a place exclusively. Why is that? I think it is because we do not ask, nor do we make demands or have expectations or delusions of grandiosity. We do not behave like entitled, spoiled, rotten whiny children who were never told no.

        Time to say “no”!!! – and tell them to grow up and to fight their own battles!! – STOP hiding behind OUR men, weapons and money.

          1. Dearest NarcAngel,
            I’m positive I enrolled in Mr Tudor’s class
            Thanks for being head prefect and directing newbies 👩‍🎓
            Mwah 💋
            Luv Bubbles xx 😘

          2. NarcAngel,

            If I were lost and wandering in a desert, then I would be Hagar, the Egyptian Princess who was enslaved by Abraham and his wife Sarah. She was then forced to marry Abraham and be raped by him in order to produce a male heir, so as to fulfill the supposed promise by God to give that land to Abraham’s descendants. Then, Sarah got pregnant and had a son, so Abraham and Sarah ejected Hagar and her son, Ishmael to the desert, where she wandered in a desert, looking for water to give her son to drink.

            Just another illustration of more abuse throughout history.

            I do not know, but this may be the origin of why Jewish people and Muslim people dislike and distrust each other. I only know what I have read and heard from others, and am NOT an authority on any of the religions. It is very possible that I have the names and details wrong – all we have to go by is what people wrote. I do not know how accurate those words are. All I know is my own life and my experiences. What I have seen, heard and felt, so my personal perspective. I have been and continue to be the object of hated from others from various groups (including groups which I consider myself to be a part of) – just like everyone else on this planet. I am NOT their Mommy, however, and do not take responsibility for protecting them. Their bad behavior belongs to them and it is their responsibility to try to redeem themselves, if they are men enough to try.

            I am merely REACTING to their abusive actions, which appears to be a worldwide trend.

          3. NarcAngel,

            We are all aware that Christians are ALL races. So, it is not “racist” to want a place for Christians – just more projection from the haters who think they have a right to control our minds, mouths and everything that makes us FREE.

            My son’s father’s ancestors came to America over 334 years ago- and with 12 other families, founded a part of a major East Coast city to escape religious persecution as Christians. They set up a town and church. They fought in the American Revolution. They were part of the Underground Railroad and fought in the Civil War (as did my ancestors). They TRULY believed in FREEDOM.

            My ex-boyfriend who is Apache / Mexican / Spanish / Portuguese (American) is a Christian. He is so Christian, he was born on Christmas Eve! And was an altar boy..

            Look at how many African Americans are Christians. Their ancestors who were enslaved got through their ordeal with help and Faith (a tradition that lives on today through their descendants).

            I have a church that I used to go to when I lived on the West Coast. It was so UPLIFTING. Everyone was there – White, Black, Asian, Latino, rich, poor, even homeless. Everyone was welcome.

            Most residents of the American Continent are Christian – maybe the American continent can be for Christians. WHY NOT

            The Jewish people can have that little piece of land (if their cousins agree) – not my fight, interest or concern..

            Not my son’s fight, either.

            NOT MY COUNTRY’S FIGHT!!!!!!!

          4. Hi Kate, may I ask what is it that Trump is doing for Israel that makes you upset? Is it The military support?

          5. Kate: I am shocked. In a bad way—with your revision of the history of Hagar and Abraham and Sarah. Anyone that knows the history or goes and reads the history will seriously question your credibility in many matters. There is no need to come back and challenge me, but that is your right. Your revision is hostile. And many Arabs will agree with me as well. Hagar the slave felt very honored to have a child by Abraham. And Hagar disrespected her mistress Sarah etc. when the child was born, because at that time Sarah was barren. I would have kicked Hagar out as well if I openly gave her the honor of sleeping with my husband and bearing his child, and then she would disrespect me? No. She would have to go. And when Sarah’s barrenness was ended and she finally did bare a child with her husband Abraham, more disrespect occured with the new child that Sarah gave birth to for Abraham, and Sarah told Abraham about it. And asked Abraham to remove Hagar and her son from the household because of the disrespect. And Abraham inquired of God. And that is what God told Abraham to do as well. To listen to his wife, and that He, God, would provide for Hagar and her child and give them a great heritage. The Arabs are not the offspring of rape, according to your revision. The challenge is for anyone that is interested to go and read the history for themselves and then consider your revision. There are excellent researchers and scholars on here as well, both formal and self-taught. And evidence is important around here, as you know. I do admire your fire and tenacity though. But, you have to be careful that when people research your statements that they stand up to scrutiny. People will research what you say, even though they often will not get back to you or even tell you that they have researched your platforms or statements. Never forget that.

          6. Ishmael was by a concubine, Isaac was by a wife. Therefore, Isaac took precedence, though he was younger.

            A similar situation could have developed with Henry VIII’s sons. Henry Fitzroy, by mistress Bessie Blount, was older, but Edward, by wife #3 Jane Seymour, was legitimate. Therefore Edward would take precedence (although in that particular case, it didn’t matter, since Henry Fitzroy died young, probably of TB, before Edward was born).

            The Royal Bastards of Louis XIV usually got titles and positions at court, but at least one mistress, Mme. de Montespan, was highly irked that her children, whom she considered vastly superior to the Queen’s, would never be in the succession.

        1. Jesus turning his other cheek after being slapped seems to be understood by many to submit to his oppressors and abusers …

          I interpret this act as one of DEFIANCE and STRENGTH.

          1. 1. The Romans were tricked into killing Jesus because the Jewish rabbis saw Jesus as a threat.

            2. The Crusaders were tricked into attacking Muslims in the holy city of Jerusalem.

            3. The world was tricked (mostly Britain and the United States) into establishing the country of Israel and protecting them to this day.

            WHEN is it enough?

            Tricky talkers (NOT all Jewish people!) should no longer be allowed to make fools of us.

            Israel is a place unto itself and it is NOT our responsibility to be involved in their HATEFUL and greedy actions. Having all of those flags where Jesus walked is blasphemy!!!

          2. Hi Kate, the US provides military and financial support to many countries around the world. Why are you so obsessed with Israel? Do you think that we are giving them free money? No. We are benefitting greatly from our relationship with Israel. With them being the country in the Middle East that has the most similar culture to us, it is imperative that we help keep them strong. They provide a lot of intelligence, strategic and training help to us and a lot of those are not even quantifiable with money. Out of everybody in the Middle East, Israel is the country that we can trust the most.

          3. Hi PrincessSuperEmpath,

            I sincerely apologize to anyone that may be offended by any inaccurate or misleading comment made by me above on the history of Abraham, Sarah and Hagar (I do not believe this is her given name). Her story is one that I can relate to …, but I was not enslaved in the same way (I have been restrained against my will, however). I have been raped or tricked into having sex with men. My love and devotion has been disrespected.

            The story of Abraham and his two wives and their sons and how they were all treated by him all happened so long ago, and there are so many variations on the story (I think) and I need to know more. I did NOT want to offend through my lack of knowledge.

            I am not knowledgeable about a lot of things, including the Muslim faith. No one taught me these things and I am going by my recollections of what I have read and how I interpret them.

            This maybe shows why people of different faiths could learn from one another instead of hating one another. I think every one of the faiths has some important information that could be useful, which is why I suggested turning the American Embassy in Jerusalem (the building) into a place of learning and friendship for all – and moving the embassy and the American flag back to Tel Aviv.

            I find favoring one religion over another by the American Government to be against the Founding Father’s intentions. The First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States is VERY plain. These people that call the Constitution “a living breathing document” are weird – it is a piece of paper with ink on it.

            I just wish so much that a Christian could to Jerusalem without fear. (I am afraid).

            I would really like to go to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

        2. A group of Christians already have a country of their own and it’s the only Theocratic country that currently exists: Vatican.

          If you’re upset at Trump because he is helping Israel, you just have to eat your heart out. First, Israel is our long time ally so it’s not like Trump is doing something weird or unacceptable. And second, they are giving him lots of fuel. He has an amazingly high approval rating in Israel, second only to the Philippines. They even have a ‘Donald Trump Square’ to show gratitude to him. So naturally, he will help them and relish the fuel from it.

        3. Hi HG,

          In the above comment, I spoke of how Jewish people show up and act like they own the place, everywhere they go, including the United States of America.

          Here is PROOF:

          There are SEVENTY (70) Holocaust Museums in the United States.

          There are THIRTEEN (13) Christian Museums in the United States.

          This shows FAVORITISM and is extremely EXCESSIVE!!!

          SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.

          Is ANYONE willing to speak up???

          Me, I am. ENOUGH!!!

          These gross and gory things should be moved to synagogues (IMO).

      2. Hi HG,

        If Israel used the laws of succession (is that what you called it?) which is what I think you said is used in England now, then wouldn’t Israel (that land) belong to Abraham’s first-born son’s descendants? I am not sure, but I think that Ishmael was born first. What are the rules, HG?? I do not know because as far as I know, I have no business butting my nose into this and am not allowed to ask questions. You don’t seem to mind answering questions about England and I do not mind answering questions about my country, either. I do not understand who owns that place. Can they share and be respectful to one another?

        I really hope so. What do you think?

      3. Guess what, HG??

        I have some Middle Eastern DNA!!! (according to my DNA results).

        It is possible that I am an ancestor of Abraham! (I think) How do I find out?? Do they have Abraham’s DNA?

        Perhaps I should apply for Citizenship of Israel..
        (Then, of course, I will run for Prime Minister. haha)

        Does anyone know how many countries a person can be a Citizen of? Israel (or some other Middle Eastern country) would make #7 for me that I can prove. Pretty cool.

        What are your thoughts, HG??!

      1. HG,

        Because you are not from the United States, you may be unfamiliar with the New York Yankees fan chant:

        “WHO’S YOUR DADDY??”

        Here is a link:

    2. Hi HG,

      I sent you a comment earlier and hope that you will post it. Please forgive how long it is.

      I am VERY worried about the state of our children in America!!

      I am especially concerned about the White boys.

      My son, who I love with all of my heart, is a White man.

      His generation is HURTING – he has either six (6) or seven (7) White boys (and one girl) who are DEAD.

      They are killing themselves with heroin. One hung himself.

      I think it is because they are constantly being told how BAD they are!

      My ex-boyfriend’s daughter, who in on the West Coast, come home one day from school and yelled at her mother, that she hated her because she is part German and all German people are bad because all German people are Nazis because that is what she was told by her teacher in her school (public).

      THIS is what they are teaching in the public school system in the United States of America.

      SHAMEFUL!

      What they are learning is of no use to them and their futures! WHY aren’t any of the politicians pontificating about THE KIDS. The kids are being USED. They are being made into mindless drones. They should be learning how to think for themselves and other useful things so that they can be self-sufficient adults who feel good about themselves. That should be our goal for ALL of the children, not a “chosen” few.

      Thank you for helping things to make sense for me, HG.

    3. Hi HG,

      Are you aware that there was a meeting of the General Assembly of the United Nations on September 24, 2019 and the President of the United States of America delivered a speech? I watched it and also read the transcript online.

      https://www.whitehouse.gove/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-74th-session-united-nations-general-assembly/ (please note that this is probably more reliable than the one that I used)

      Some things he said which I personally found interesting are:

      “… our time is one of great contests, high stakes and clear choices. The essential divide that runs all around the world and throughout history . .. is the divide between those whose thirst for control eludes them into thinking they are destined to rule over others and those people and nations who want only to rule themselves. …

      The United States, after having spent over Two and a half Trillion Dollars since my election to completely rebuild our great military, is by far the world’s most powerful nation. Hopefully, it will never have to use this power. Americans know that in a world where others seek conquests and domination, our nation must be strong in wealth, in might and in spirit. …

      One of the greatest security threats facing peace-loving nations today is the repressive regime in Iran. The regime’s record of death and destruction is well known to us all. … in a fanatical quest for nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them. We must never allow this to happen. … Hoping to free itself from sanctions, the regime has escalated its violence and unprovoked aggression. … All nations have a duty to act. …

      Leaders will have turned a proud nation into just another cautionary tale of what happens when a ruling class abandons its people and embarks on a crusade for personal power and riches. …

      They conduct ritual chants of “Death to America” and traffic in monstrous anti-semitism. Last year, the country’s Supreme Leader stated Israel is a malignant cancerous tumor that has to be removed and eradicated. …

      America will never tolerate such anti-semitic hate. …

      One of our most critical challenges is illegal immigration. … There is a growing cottage industry of radical activists and nongovernmental organizations that promote human smuggling. These groups encourage illegal migration and demand erasure of national borders. Today, I have a message for those open border activists who cloak themselves in the rhetoric of “Social Justice”: your policies are not just, your policies are cruel and evil. … You put your own false sense of virtue before the lives and well-being of countless innocent people. When you undermine border security, you are undermining human rights and human dignity. …

      Socialism and communism are about one thing only – power of the ruling class. …

      Totalitarian ideologies combined with modern technologies have the power to exercise new and disturbing forms of oppression and domination. … We must always be skeptical of those who want conformity and control. …

      A permanent political class is openly disdainful, dismissive and defiant of the will of the people. A faceless bureaucrocy operates in secret and weakens democratic rule. Media and academic institutions push flat-out assaults on our histories, traditions and values. …

      Our nations’s Founders understood that there will always be those who believe they are entitled to real power and control over others. Tyranny advances under many names and many theories, but it always comes down to the desire for domination. It protects not the interest of many but the privilege of the few. …

      The true good of a nation can only be pursued by those who love it. By citizens who are rooted in its ancestry. Who are nourished by culture. Committed to its values. Attached to its people and who know that its future is theirs to build or theirs to lose. Patriots and its nation and its destiny in ways no one else can. Liberty is only preserved. Sovereignity is only secured. Democracy is only sustained. Greatness only realized with the will and devotion of Patriots, and in this spirit is found the strength to resist oppression. The inspiration to protect legacy. The goodwill to see friendship and the bravery to reach for peace. …

      Cherish your culture. Honor your histories. Treasure your citizens. …

      We will rediscover old truths, unravel all mysteries. …

      The path to peace and progress and freedom and justice to a better world for all humanity – it begins at home.”

      Sorry if that is too much to highlight of what caught my attention in this speech!

      I do not know what others think of it because all anyone seems to care about is the shiny object = impeachment inquiry that was announced at the same time as this speech was delivered. How embarrassing for America that they didn’t have the respect for everyone else in the world to allow the United Nations to conduct its business. (Bunch of brats, IMO.)

      THIS WAS IMPORTANT and we all should pay attention to the rest of the world. We are not the only ones living here.

      How do we find out who wrote this speech?

    4. Hi HG,

      Did you know that President Donald Trump signed a proclamation in Washington, D.C., USA on March 26, 2019 – declaring that Golan Heights belongs to Israel?

      Does Trump have the authority to do this???

      This link is for an article titled “Trump gives Golan Heights “gift” to Israel’s Netanyahu, who compares him to a Persian king “:

      https://222.scmp.com/news/world/middle-east/article/3003252/trump-gives-golan-heights-gift-israels-netanyahu-who

      These parts concern me:

      “With Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at this side, US President Donald Trump declared that the Golan Heights belongs to Israel – handing another major diplomatic victory to the premier ahead of tight elections.

      Netanyahu spared no praise as he watched Trump sign the Golan proclamation at the White House, likening him to President Harry S. Truman, who recognised Israel, and even to Cyrus the Great, the Persian king who freed the Jews of Babylon. …

      “Your recognition is a twofold act of historic justice. Israel won the Golan Heights in a just war …, and the Jewish people’s roots in the Golan go back thousand of years,” he said.

      Trump – who in 2017 took the even more momentous step of recognised disputed Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – called the Golan declaration “a long time in the making”.

      Netanyahu was visiting Washington for the conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the pro-Israel US lobby…

      “Today, aggressive acts by Iran and terrorist groups, including Hezbollah, in southern Syria continue to make the Golan Heights a potential launching ground for attacks on Israel,” Trump said in the proclamation. …

      … the United Nations and US allies France and Britain all saying they still considered the Golan Heights “Israeli-occupied” in line with UN resolutions.

      Syria denounced the “blatant attack” on its sovereignty…

      Iranian President Hassan Rowhani slammed Trump’s move as illegal.

      “No one could imagine that a person in America comes and gives land of a nation to another occupying country, against international laws and conventions … Such action is unprecedented,” Rowhani was quoted…

      Saudi Arabia joined its rivals, with Riyadh expressing its “firm rejection and condemnation of the US administration’s declaration”…

      The Kremlin and Russian Foreign Secretary Sergei Lavrov told US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a phone call that the US decision was a “a gross violation of international law”…”

      Is anyone else worried, or am I the only one?

      WHAT IS TRUMP DOING???!!! And WHY?

    5. Holy crap, HG!

      IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH

      The President of the United States of America does not have power vested in him by The Constitution of the United States of America to exert power and control over another country.

      I do not believe this Presidential proclamation is anything more than a statement. His executive powers are within the federal government of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      Israel is NOT part of The United States of America.

      President Donald Trump is NOT the President of Israel, nor is he the “King of Israel” like he has tweeted.

      This piece of paper could be used to wipe your ass.

      Here is a link to see the proclamation.

      https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/proclamation-recognizing-golan-heights-part-state-israel/

      EVERYONE should write to ALL members of the Senate and House of Representatives to get him OUT of office!!!

      They did NOT report this to us (they control what we are told).

      Trump has signed so many of these things, more than three hundred (300) it looks like – they just buried this.

      1. Anyone who is interested in trying to get our elected officials to do something REAL and useful with their time can write to any or all of the following people:

        Cory Booker, 359 Dirksen Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Ted Cruz, 404 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Jeff Flake, 413 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Kirsten E. Gillibrand, 478 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Kamala D. Harris, 112 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        John Kennedy, 383 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Amy Klobuchar, 302 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Patrick J. Leahy, 437 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Rand Paul, 167 Russell Senate Office Building,, Washington DC 20510

        Marco Rubio, 284 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Bernie Sanders, 332 Dirksen Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Chuck Schumer, 322 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Patrick J. Toomey, 248 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        Elizabeth Warren, 317 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington DC 20510

        WE CAN DO IT, all of us.

        Let’s show them who is boss around here!!!

    6. Professor Tudor,

      Have you ever heard the following:

      “Start spreading the news…”

      (the first words of the song “New York, New York” and sung by Frank Sinatra)

      Here is a link:

          1. No, it is the CLASSIC New York song! I don’t know if they still do, but it used to be played by every bar in the state of New York at closing time. Fun fact!

            Did you really say, “Frank .. who?”

            Were you able to listen to the song, HG??

          2. Kate
            Have you thought of writing for your local newspaper, maybe sending them articles for their editorial page? Most newspapers are online too these days, and their readers are likely to discuss articles like yours.

        1. Just because you’ve got me under your skin, that you get a kick out of me and you have a crush on me, you have to understand that’s life, I won’t dance to your tune and that it always has to be my way.

          1. Goodness! Now even I’m confused??

            Yup, he’s never heard of New York, New York. None of us have.

          2. Glad we sorted that out. Oops just seen I mistakenly included my email address in last comment. Could you kindly remove for me please HG. Thank you

    7. Professor Tudor,

      I learned that the way that an Impeachment Inquisition is begun is through the House of Representatives.

      They have a Foreign Affairs Committee. The members are appointed by the Speaker of the House, who is currently Nancy Pelosi.. Nancy Pelosi can receive a message with this link:

      https://www.speaker.gov/contact

      Her address is: 1236 Longworth House Office Building, 15 Independence Ave SE, Washington, D.C. 20515

      I think that I will ask her to look into the unusually close and dangerous alliance between the United States of America and Israel, especially our foreign policy and how it is possibly being influenced by Donald Trump and his family / business ties, including Benjamin Netanyahu (the Prime Minister of Israel).

      Israel (the country) turned 71 on May 14, 2019. I feel that they have received more than sufficient parenting and it is beyond time for them to be adults and fight their own battles. There seems to have been continuous unrest in and around Israel since its “birth”. I feel that this is a regional dispute and the United States of America has no business being so involved with Israel. We should not take sides between Israel and Palestine (the Jewish faith over the Muslim faith, really). I do not like the policies of Israel and would prefer to not have my country be associated with them. This issue should be handled by the involved parties. I do not know what the United Nations role should be. What are your thoughts??

      FREEDOM OF SPEECH

      I feel that this is going in the wrong direction. Personally, In my opinion, the United States Embassy in Jerusalem should have the United States flag taken down in a respectful fashion and moved back to Tel Aviv, where it and the Embassy belong. The United States Embassy in Jerusalem – the building, could possibly be turned into a place for people of all faiths who want to share their thoughts in an open and non-combative way to do so. We could have those here, too. I think that this would help people to be more accepting of one another. I do not know if this would work, but it is worth a try. Our current “Peace Plan” does not represent anyone’s interests but the Jewish people. I am not certain, but the Palestinians do not seem to be well-represented in this process. Perhaps the United Nations are better suited to figure out what is happening in the Middle East and all of the apparent “Land Grabs”.

      Maybe Jerusalem could be a city of peace, which is the meaning of Jerusalem – “City of Peace”. I do not think that the United States of America should appear to be taking sides on this issue. This does NOT help in reaching the ultimate foal of peace.

      President Trump’s personal and business relationships, and his personal and political connections to the country of Israel is difficult to ignore. I do not know if he is being altruistic and being used by other people to benefit them only, or if President Trump and his family also stand to make a fortune by him being President of the United States and his policies with regards to Israel.

      Again, another politician who may end up with a lot more money after being President (personal financial gain), which seems like a possible reason for Impeachment. What do you think??

      President Trump seems to do a lot of “Special Favors” for Israel. I do not understand why he does it, but I feel that it is very bad foreign policy and possibly a reason for Impeachment. What do you think?

      I love how open our government tries to be. You can read the Committee on Foreign Affairs Oversight Plan of the 116th Congress (which is the current group). Possibly the correct committee to look into a thorough financial inquiry is the Economic Policy and Trade Committee (from reading about the different subcommittees and what they do). The Committee’s Plan can be seen here:

      https://foreignaffairs.house.gov/committee-oversight

      Part of it states, “Economic Policy and Trade: The committee will oversee international economic policy, including U.S. leadership in trade, finance, energy, technology, and development policy to promote economic prosperity and national security.” ——-THIS IS IMPORTANT —–

      If anyone is interested, the link to write to the forty-three (43) members of the Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives is:

      https://foreignaffairs.house.gov/members

      You can see who they are, get on their websites and write to them. Of interest to me is Representative Ilhan Omar. (she is one of “The Squad”), and Joaquin Castro, who is the Vice Chair and is or was running for the Democratic nomination for the 2020 election. The Chairman is Eliot Engel. . The Ranking Member is Michaael McCaul.

      Another of the committees that sounds interesting is the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. The only person that I recognize is Representative Ilhan Omar. Here is a link to contact any or all of the ten (10) members:

      https://govtrack.us/congress/committees/HSFA/17

      Another interesting person to contact (maybe) is Eric Swalwell. His address is 407 Cannon House Office Building, 27 Independence Avenue SE, Washington, D.C. 20003. Trying to email him was irritating because they wanted me to first sign up to receive emails, sorry but I did not get a link.

      Also, Devin Nunes, who is on the Intelligence Committee. His address is 1013 Longworth House Office Building, 15 Independence Avenue SE, Washington, D.C. A link to contact him is:

      https://nunes.house.gov/contactform/

      Sorry to go on so much, I hope it is not annoying.

      I am trying to be accurate, which is why this comment is so long..

      Thank you for reading all of that, anyone who did. I do not know if contacting these people will cause any of them to do anything or not. Any thoughts?

      1. Kate
        My thoughts are that this is not a political blog. It is a blog about narcissism that happened to do an article on a political figure. There is a big difference. You are wasting your time posting these things you do as we are passing them by to concentrate on what we came here for. Please post them on blogs where they can have more consideration and possible effect POLITICALLY. This is not the place for those kinds of discussions and so yes, it is annoying and actually has the opposite effect to what you are trying to achieve.

        1. Hi NarcAngel,

          The reason why I think it is relevant to talk about these people is because they are Narcissists.

          Their actions are far-reaching and I am hoping that the American people can do something because the real power is supposed to belong to us. I am hoping that contacting the elected officials will result in them not being afraid to consider what I think are valid points supported by what appears to be proof.

          The elected officials have the power to do something, and we may have to ask.

        2. Apparently HG, (moderator ) decided to let it go through. You choose what you want to read. Don’t try to tell another poster what she should or shouldn’t post because you don’t want to read or you are being considerate of HG’s time.

          He’s got this! Onward.

          1. Yolo
            Funny, that’s what you just did – told me what I should or should not post. The difference is that she asked for thoughts and I gave them, but I didn’t ask for yours. You’re only trying to take another dig at me by pretending to champion someone else and it’s transparent. You really should let it go.

  16. I was a child in the 60’s, I witnessed history in the making because it all happened in my backyard, growing up outside of DC. If you think people of that time didn’t fight for women’s rights and civil rights, against pollution, and for peace, then it’s because you grew up spoiled enjoying the fruits of those peoples accomplishments and you don’t appreciate the fights it took to make it all happen. Even when I was a teenager, female’s opinions in conversations was not taken seriously. Suffragettes fighting for the right to vote didn’t just march, they were man handled, broken bones, thrown in horrid prisons and not medically attended to. This was just for the right to vote. Black men, who had once been slaves, were given the right to vote before any women, and it had to be fought for. Civil Rights in the 60’s in DC was a very scary time, there was a lot of anger, assassinations, bloodshed, all in order to live in the same neighborhoods, eat in the same restaurants, rise in position in the same companies. The kids in those times had to be brave while the adults went back and forth. Desegregating meant a handful of uncomfortable black children had to leave their all black school and go to an all white school where they were the only ones who were black. I’m sure handfuls of white children were bussed to black schools and just as uncomfortable. Add to it that neither one of us had ever been around each other because of segregation. Prayers in school meant that if your family didn’t pray to the same God, then you would politely go stand out in the hall while the teacher said a prayer with the class. Women’s Lib was about the right to equal pay, to rising in position in a company. If you think the things you take for granted today weren’t fought for with sacrifice and blood, you are completely wrong.

    George Washington did not believe in having political parties, and he was so right. We are divided like fans of opposing football teams, and the danger is that a party can be owned by organizations such as the NRA. Again it’s the children today who are the brave ones going to schools, practicing shooter drills, and who walked out of classrooms and organized marches against the threat of gun violence. How many children have lost their lives, grown up too fast, and yet an organization brainwashes people to not care about their own children, and the people who will be the ones supporting this country when we’re old.

    I don’t like how radical people are when supporting their party. There’s no reason to be so emotional, and not calm. I honestly don’t know anything this administration has accomplished in the past three years. What is good was already in place. But a lot has been undone. A lot was fought for by citizens, with blood and sacrifice, that I saw growing up. If you think the 1950’s was wonderful then you’re not seeing the real picture. That’s why the 1960’s had civil rights and women’s rights and a movement by young people for brotherly love, which the Bible says.

    This isn’t about which political party you’re on, it’s about Democracy, the ground people before us and during my time paved for us. It’s about making further progress, not undoing and going backwards. It’s about the freedom and rights of people.

  17. On the contrary Mr Tudor, I believe Trump is exposing a nation of narcissists! Who’s most upset about his Victory? Democrats, Replicans, Mainstream Media, The Global Elite? What’s up is down, left is right, he wasn’t supposed to win! Sure he may exhibit narc traits but who wouldn’t at that level? Anyone who has attacked him has failed. Have you read Antifragile by Nassim Taleb? It explains some of this. A lot of good has already come and will come from the Trump administration, it may take a few years for people to figure that out.

  18. What the “owners” of the Democratic Party (George Soros and his little friends, also Obamas and Clintons) have done to my country is disgusting.

    None of them EARNED this place.

    None of their ancestors fought or risked their lives for strangers and the future.

    They are all typical – greedy and selfish users.

    If my ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War (and every war before and since, to this day) could have seen into the future, I wonder if they would have chosen to risk their lives for this lot of ungrateful users. I am so sad to see what has become of this once exceptional place and people.

    This does not feel like home anymore.

  19. Hi HG,

    I thought that it would be interesting to some to know that when George Soros talks about living through Nazi occupation, it should be noted (but he does not stress) that he lived in the country of Hungary.and the Nazis occupied Hungary for less than four (4) months.

    When I was a girl, it was required reading to read “Anne Frank” – this person (George Soros) is no Ann Frank.

      1. Thank you, HG.

        Another interesting fact is that I was educated in the public school system in the United States. Making “The Diary of Anne Frank” required reading illustrates the use of “Social Influence” (in my opinion).

        I found a definition for “Social Influence”:

        Social Influence is the change in behavior that one person causes in another, intentionally or unintentionally, as a result of the way the changed person perceives themselves in relationship to the influencer, other people and society in general. Three areas of “Social Influence” are:

        1. Conformity

        2. Compliance

        3. OBEDIENCE.

        I feel that that forcing me to read “The Diary of Anne Frank” was child abuse. This was traumatizing for me.

        No one ever teaches or talks about the MORE THAN FIVE (5) MILLION NON-JEWISH EUROPEANS WHO WHO MURDERED by the Nazis – I WILL.

        They are not to be forgotten.

        Their ancestors do not insist on their tragic deaths being repeatedly talked about, nor is it their goal to engender sympathy. Their behavior is more to my liking.

        1. Trump is a TRAITOR.

          He did NOT go to Poland to commemorate and recognize the invasion of Poland, which was the beginning of World War II (or what we are told was the start). Three Million (3,000,000) Polish Catholics were murdered in Poland by Nazis.

          Also, before Nazis invaded Poland, they imprisoned and murdered Catholic priests, nuns and others who were faithful to their religion in Germany. Catholic churches were closed. It appears that the Nazis’ actual goal was to rid Europe of Christianity. As usual, the jews brainwash everyone into thinking that it is all about them and think they own the world, demanding sympathy and special treatment. People need to read and not allow themselves to be told everything.

          Everyone reporting on “news” were too interested in another hurricane in Florida. No one cares about the TRUE tragedy (Christian churches being trampled through by non-believers in the aftermath of World War II). No one seems pays attention. No one seems to care.

          As always, people are distracted by the shiny object or the biggest noise maker around.

          Trump is bought and paid for.

          Trump does NOT represent me, nor do the crazy people that I see at his rallies (FYI).

        2. I had a jewish therapist who said this to me, – “You like playing the victim, don’t you?!!”

          Talk about PROJECTION..

        3. The United States socialism agenda that is in place right now needs to be addressed!

          Reading “The Diary of Anne Frank” should be a CHOICE – not FORCED on any child.

          STOP teaching our children about sexual acts, too!!!

          STOP teaching them that there are more than two sexes – just put your own hand in your pants and you know that you have one or the other. Come on! This stuff is so weird, mind-bending and promoting abortion in school as well. WHAT is this curriculum all about???

          These kids are learning a lot of crap.

          Schools should NOT be taking kids out of a learning environment to be marching as political tools (isn’t that against the law?).

          WHO is paying for all of these hate groups? They stop traffic and attack innocent people and the kids are looking at these people as ROLE MODELS?!!

          Nongovernmental Organizations and political special interest groups should NOT be allowed to mess with our heads and buy our officials into making policies that only help a SMALL group. They should be BANNED.

          Let’s protect the kids, help them to have a better future than it looks like they are being told is reality. They are stressed out about EVERYTHING, including the environment.

          Let the kids be kids! The grown-ups should be taking better care of them (and act like responsible adults).

          Please..

  20. There’s a network of narcissist leaders scattered strategically across the planet right now. The nuclear bomb threat from Russia is unbelievable. He’s a Madman. They just said they flew two nuclear bomb planes near Alaska, days after a nuclear mushroom appeared in their sky from a nuclear missile test that failed- the radiation not only killed people, it contaminated the doctors treating them! I really believe Trump was placed here to stop America from being a threat. It’s like these narcissist leaders in power are trying to end the world. If it’s not the environment, it’s nuclear. Every country has had everyday citizens protesting. HG, seriously, how do we stop this? Can’t a network of intelligent narcissists at least take over?? I don’t mean to sound dramatic, but it’s time to sound the bell.

    1. I agree with you kel2day.
      This is one arena where denial is doing a lot of damage.
      We don’t need intelligent narcissists in power. We need empathic leaders. Like Jacinda Arden.

      I don’t think humanity will end but I fear things are going to get much worse before they get better. The difference is the scale of potential destruction. Nowhere will be immune. Humanity’s arrogance is going to bite us on the arse. Many civilisations have risen and fallen before, we’re in denial if we think we can maintain this current system, both domestically and globally.

      1. Tappi,
        You’re right about denial. A lot of people don’t even watch the news or know what’s happening because it’s too stressful to watch.

        If the Occupant in the WH is the one with the thumb control on our nuke button, then his gushing love affair and love letters with Vladimir and Kim aren’t much of a threat if it comes down to a Cold War between us. He’s befriended his enemies and they’re laughing behind his back. His narcissism is the death of us and what we stand for.

        I believe in the power of positivity and of the people. I’m also praying for a lightning bolt to come down and strike certain strategic narcissist’s, lol.

        1. I LOLed at your lightning bolt comment kel2day. Are you listening Thor? Use your might for good!

          There are some encouraging developments scattered throughout the globe. Eg, AOC is a shining example in your neck of the woods; the determination of the Hong Kong protestors; Jacinda; extinction rebellion; Greta T, come immediately to mind.

          It’s going to take cunning and persistence to effect positive changes at all levels of govt and also society. Reading HG has helped me realise that. Those in power won’t give it up without a fight. Oh and a global blanket ban on all tabloid exploitative media.

          I wish we could reframe the whole left-right divide in politics. It’s not helpful. There must be some political scientists out there formulating new theories. I’m really condensing my thoughts in the interests of time though I hope you get my general drift.

          Are you kel of the kel with lovely hand pic from many months past?

          1. PS kel2day
            More lols from me at the gushing love affair/love letters comment!

            Russia and China are certainly dangerous. They’re positioning themselves globally and preparing for war. They have long been allies and deflect the true nature of their relationship. Before anyone accuses me of being a conspiracy theorist, please go do some reading. The evidence is overwhelming.

          2. Tappi,

            Lol at Thor, and yeah please already!! Yes there’s a feeling of heroism with the new young blood in government now who aren’t afraid and don’t back down from doing what’s right like AOC. I wish we could help the protesters in Hong Kong and the citizens in Russia too who’ve been so bravely protesting. I hope they succeed, in the meanwhile.. Gods- Mother Nature -cheeseburger heart attacks.

            I agree about reading HG as he’s said narcissists won’t be stopped from their mission. But what if other narcissists challenged them?

            I am the same Kel, no need to write out the whole long Kel2day. WP wouldn’t let me use my old name and said I had to have a longer name. WP must be a narc, lol.

          3. Kel
            I suppose their own agendas will get in the way- other narcissists challenging I mean. Nancy Pelosi seems like an example of that.

            Ha ha re: WP… if it was human it would be narc! So contrary. Though if you think about how enormous the back end of the program must be, the glitches come as no surprise….. and we all know how IT professionals operate- run with a product, release it before it’s actually ready and then update and ‘fix bugs’ after lots of complaint and protest!!

          4. Tappi,
            Pelosi has had her battles with Trump for sure. I think she sees it as, if he’s impeached, then kookoo VP Pence will just pardon him and trump will get off Scott-Free, but if we wait a year til he’s out of office and we hopefully elect a new president who won’t pardon trump, then trump will be legally prosecuted and his orange face will have an orange prison uniform to match.

          5. Kel
            lol… yes an orange uniform will suit him.

            Nancy doesn’t seem supportive of AOC for example she poo pooed her green new deal. Perhaps she’s threatened by her. I’m not up to date with the finer details of US politics, too busy watching my own horror show here.

  21. Trump isn’t the real threat.

    Stop being distracted by the shiny object!

    Put on your sunglasses so you can see clearly..

  22. Hi HG,

    I would like to suggest and request that you write an article on George Soros.

    His money, influence and policies appear to have done and continue to do a lot of damage to the world (in my opinion). He was a Jewish child in occupied Europe during Nazi occupation and appears to have an axe to grind (again, IMO). I think he is the one who wants a “New World Order”.

    It would be very helpful to learn what you think..

    Thank you!

      1. Thank you so much, HG.

        There is so much information (facts) about him, his connections, projects and his $32 BILLION dollars. I realize that this would be very time-consuming and I appreciate you considering outlining how this person in seen through the Tudor Scope! Hopefully, you will.

          1. Hi HG,

            You say to “vent your spleen!”, so hope it is okay to add more..

            When I read the above-referenced article from The Wall Street Journal, it upset me to hear that these four people who do not share my Christian Faith are mocking it by calling themselves “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse”.

            God will not be mocked.

            I would like to share the following TRUE story to illustrate:

            I have been friends for about 22 years with a sweet Jewish woman. I know her two children, mother and sister. Maybe 4 years ago, I met her, her mother and two very young children at a play area. For some reason, the two children were clinging (literally) to her and her older child kept running away and thought it was hilarious how her mom chased her around. Anyway, this left me with her mother to talk to.

            Her mother’s face took an uncharacteristic appearance and she said in a mocking tone, “Do you believe in that FAIRY TALE, (describing the Immaculate Conception)?”

            Me, “Yes.”

            My friend’s mother, “How?” or “Why?”

            Me, “It is a matter of faith.”

            The discussion continued briefly, then my friend intervened and brought it to an end. My friend changed the subject to how her mother was going to need cataract surgery and I excitedly told them that I had a wonderful doctor to recommend for my friend’s mother. He has excellent credentials and had done the same surgery for my mother, and it was a complete success. They did not want my recommendation. They went to someone else.

            The result?

            One of her eyes got diseased and had to be removed.

            The other eye? She can barely see through it.

          2. HG,

            I hope that I am not being a nuisance!

            This blew my mind, so wanted to share..

            A link to another article from The Wall Street Journal (the one that I reference here is dated May 3, 2017) and has this to say:

            “Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, is currently in business with Goldman-Sachs Group, Inc. and billionaires George Soros and Peter Thiel, according to people familiar with the matter and securities filings.

            The previously undisclosed business relationships with titans of the financial and technology worlds are through a real-estate tech startup called Cadre that Mr. Kushner cofounded and currently partly owns.

            … in a building owned by the Kushner family’s company…”

            https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-adviser-jared-kushner-didnt-disclose-startup-stake-1493717405

            WHY is George Soros involved?

            The corruption is mind blowing.

        1. HI HG,

          I assume that you know George Soros as “The Man who broke the Bank of England”.

          I am attempting to put a link for an article that was published by “The Telegraph” on 13 September 2002 which tells the tale well..

          https://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/2773265/Billionaire-who-broke-the-Bank-of-England.html

          The last paragraph of the article says, “He is rumoured to have given away almost 200 million British Pounds , partly through his Soros Foundation to support democracy in Russia and Eastern Europe.”

          Another quote from the above article, “He admitted that his actions had benefited no one but himself…”

          Funny, the Hungarians (who are on the Eastern end of Europe and know him VERY well because he was born and lived there until going to England to study) – see right through him and have kicked out his hateful organizations. I am proud to be part Hungarian! haha.

          Time for England and America to wake up and get rid of him and his hateful little friends, as well..

          1. More mocking of the Christian Faith AND Jesus (again)- they call Trump “The King of Israel”.

          2. Hi HG,

            I have never been to Europe and so therefore, do not know what is happening there, or what sorts of things your citizens have to deal with. I was hoping that you can let us know what you can relate to those of us who do not live there. Are citizens of your country in agreement with the sentiments expressed in this video (below) by Peter Szijjarto, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Hungary? In the video he is addressing the United Nations (General Debate) on September 26, 2019. Do other European nations feel the same as the Hungarian Foreign Minister regarding preserving their citizens’ rights to decide for themselves their country’s path, as well as their right to protect themselves – while still pursuing helping others all around the world? The video is long, but it seems that he communicates clearly – but no one there seems to be listening. What are the impacts on Europeans of the migratory patterns that seem to be happening there??. No one in America is telling us about the situation. Please let us know what is happening in the U.K.

            https://www.unmultimedia.org/avlibrary/asset/2457/2457930/

            Do you feel that the United Nations is effective in resolving issues?

            What is your opinion of the European Union?

            Thank you!

    1. HG,

      The stock market yesterday and today is causing concern (is this worldwide?).

      I found an interesting video titled “Trump and Soros’ Secret to Riches” which was posted on February 11, 2019. (The presenter is Adam Button of ForexLive. ) Here is a link:

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y25PbZf8Jvc

      I found this part of interest, which is a quote from George Soros’ book, “”The Alchemy of Finance – Reading the Mind of the Market”:

      “Economic history is a never-ending series of episodes based on falsehoods and lies, not truths. It represents the path to big money. The object is to recognize the trend whose premise is false, ride that trend and step off before it is discredited.”

      President Trump tweeted this on August 28, 2018:

      “Our Economy is setting records on virtually every front – Probably the best our country has ever done. Tremendous value created since the Election. …”

      I wonder if this is what is happening right now, peoples’ perceptions of reality, and why there is a big sell-off in the stock market?

      Any thoughts?

      1. Hi HG,

        In some earlier comments, I wrote about the “Christ Mocked” painting that was found, how Donald Trump’s grandmother’s maiden name is Christ and how some people (including Trump spoke of and retweeted a comment) where Jewish people refer to Trump as “the king of Israel”. (Jesus Christ was mocked three times in the Bible and one of the ways that Jesus was mocked – by them – was calling Jesus “The King of the Jews”.)

        I added my personal stories of my Jewish friend’s mother mocking my faith and what happened to her eyes, as well as an ex-therapist of mine jeering at me, “you like playing the VICTIM, don’t you??!” (because it is so strange and the result to my friend’s mother’s eyes is dramatic and true).

        I know all about this kind of offensive and hateful mocking because my first name is Mary – and I was educated in the public school system in the United States. I was forced to grow up with and be in the presence of a hateful group of boys who called themselves “The Jew Crew” (NOT kidding). Some of them arrogantly refer to their little club and each other in the high school yearbook.

        What was said to me regularly and with a snear was, “Sister Mary Kate”, followed by a snicker.

        I KNOW these people!

        snicker, snicker..

        snicker snicker snicker

      2. If Trump were a REAL King* , HE would lead the charge!!!

        What do you think, HG?

        * referencing to someone or some people referring to President Trump as “The King of Israel” a few months ago (I think), and then he retweeted it – and it was all over the news. I do not know if other people know or remember all of this ..

        I want more “Game of Thrones”! Anyone else?

        1. Professor Tudor,

          Did you remember that the painting “Christ Mocked” will be auctioned this Sunday, October 27, 2019? This Found Treasure was “found” in a town near Paris, France around the same time as the Notre Dame Cathedral burned down on April 15, 2019 in Paris, France (the day after Palm Sunday and 6 days before Easter Sunday – and the day after “Game of Thrones” returned for the final season!)? After the flames at the Notre Dame Cathedral had subsided, the precious relic, The Crown of Thorns was found unharmed!

          The painting was reported “found” to us on September 24, 2019. The following day, September 25, 2019, Donald Trump delivered a speech to the United Nations General Assembly (I commented on it earlier). Also on that day, the Democrats started an “Impeachment Inquisition” about a phone call – and because of THIS, Foreign Leaders from other countries were unable to hold a dialogue with our current and only President. Our “leadership” is sorely lacking.

          I have better reasons to impeach these CROOKS::

          1.) The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 signed into law by President Donald J. Trump on December 22, 2017 that created “Opportunity Zones” that were designed to help low-income people become homeowners, but is being EXPLOITED by companies such as Cadre (owned by some Kushners. and other non-Americans.)

          2.) The “Proclamation on Recognizing the Golan Heights as Part of the State of Israel” signed by President Donald J. Trump on March 25, 2019 in Washington, D.C.– he has no authority over Syria or Israel through the Constitution of the United States of America and this is designed to instigate trouble, in my opinion.

          3) Cadre, the CASH Cow “created” by Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, Senior Adviser and the “architect” of the “Peace Plan” for Israel and Palestine that ONLY represents the interests of Jewish people and NOT people of the Muslim faith and / or people of the Christian faith. (I believe that I have a right to SPEAK UP!!! because MY interests are NOT being represented.)

          MANY people are being harmed in the United States, as well as many other parts of the world and FEW are profiting. This is UNJUST.

          Please let me know what you think regarding the scene in that painting, which is Jesus Christ being “crowned” (mocked) by some of his fellow Jewish men. WHAT has happened to those men that are being pictured in this painting??? Also – what happened to the people who laughed at Jesus as he died on the cross, spit on him and jeered? WHAT was their punishment? Were THEY put to the sword? Were they crucified? Were THEY spit on?

          Or are their descents walking among us? I think they might be. This is a REAL event that happened in history. NO ONE ever told me what happened to these mean people and the Rabbis that ordered Jesus’ death. WHERE are their descendants? Are they my neighbors? Whose ancestors came here running scared from the big bad blond-haired blue-eyed men? And they forget that OTHER big blonde, brown and black-haired men RESCUED their UTTERLY UNGRATEFUL ancestors and now all they have is HATE hate begets hate (FYI)

          I think that Jesus came back three days after being crucified (what we celebrated on Easter Sunday), looking different, to remind his followers to be CAUTIOUS about who you trust, and not to trust the wrong people.

          Did you read the article that I gave you a link to earlier about George Soros that was written by The Wall Street Journal in 2004? Here is the link, it is worth reading. His evil plan seems to have worked so far. (“The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” name themselves in the article):

          https://web.archive.org/web/20080505030738/http://www.opinionjournal.com/editorial/feature.html/?id=110004498

          Did you know that there are more than 7.7 BILLION people on the planet right now? It is hard to picture that many of anything. They use “Social Influence” to try to control what and how we think, say and do by controlling the media and education of everyone. These people are DANGEROUS.

          FREEDOM of SPEECH and THOUGHT!!! – Ideals for ALL people! (They are trying to take it away from us )

          What do YOU think about ALL of this, HG??

  23. Hi HG,

    I’m job searching and entry level. I have never had such a hard time getting a job ever since Trump has been President. No, really. Before he was President, it never took months to get hired. I see that a lot of entry level college graduates are having the same difficulty now. And it is taking months to find a job. I have had jobs and even with some experience, it has been crazy hard to get hired. A lot of people are going through this and it is being ignored for some reason.

    Just the fact that I never had this much trouble landing a job before Trump makes me wonder. And I have been seeing that employers are more picky and bias now more than ever.

    1. Do you know why it’s like this now? What is going on?

    2. Are employers being gaslighted to act and think like Trump now? It seems and feels this way.

    3. I’m so confused. I feel fear and confusion and this makes me think. Gaslighting. Is this fear and confusion the effects of him gaslighting America, too? It feels this way.

  24. HG,

    I have a two part question.

    How much fuel would Trump get from reading the online reaction in comments (here and elsewhere) by those who feel negatively provoked by his actions?

    And is the ability of a narc to derive fuel from online sources in direct relation to school and cadre? So, for example – due to less cognitive ability etc.- a lesser somatic narcissist would get less fuel from the written word (text, email, message boards) than a mid-ranger cerebral narcissist would from the exact same words? I realize the potency/quality is dependent the particular source of the fuel (primary, secondary, tertiary) but all other things being equal, I wonder if the higher the cognitive functioning means the better the skill of the narc to ‘read’ the emotion behind the written word?

    1. 1. Each item he reads provides a small amount of fuel as it is the written word, the potency will be low because it is from tertiary sources (in the main) but if he spends an hour reading the responses then he gets an hour of repeated and frequent low potency, low amount does of fuel. However, consider the impact of a cheering (or jeering) crowd he stands in front of. Tertiary sources so low potency BUT thousands of large amounts of fuel (he is physically proximate) and frequency is for as long as the cheering/jeering continues and therefore that provides a massive amount of fuel.
      2. No, the potency, amount and frequency are the same. The difference is the size and scope of access to the fuel the different schools of narcissist have.
