The Voice of the White House
Washington, D.C. May 14, 2020: Working in the White House as a junior staffer is an interesting experience.
When I was younger, I worked as a summer-time job in a clinic for people who had moderate to severe mental problems and the current work closely, at times, echos the earlier one.
I am not an intimate of the President but I have encountered him from time to time and I daily see manifestations of his growing psychological problems.
He insults people, uses foul language, is frantic to see his name mentioned on main-line television and pays absolutely no attention to any advice from his staff that runs counter to his strange ideas.
He lies like a rug to everyone, eats like a hog, makes lewd remarks to female staffers and flies into rages if anyone dares to contradict him.
It is becoming more and more evident to even the least intelligent American voter that Trump is vicious, corrupt and amoral. He has stated often that even if he loses the
election in 2020, he will not leave the White House. I have news for Donald but this is not the place to discuss it. “
Comment for May 14, 2020:” A highly confidential in-house memo sent by the director of communications in the White House to POTUS (President of the United States) has surfaced.
It concerns the November elections and addresses certain plans now in train to control the outcome. A copy of this memo was sent to Joe Biden and also to various media (Internet media) outlets.
‘The result of this dissemination is that Google has been strngly advised to mock the concept and to publish at the top of the subject file comments about “fake news.”
………
‘The Repubican gerrymandering plan aka REDMAP, has had success is purging the voter rolls of minorities and other entities who would vote for a Democratic ticket but the new plan, FALCONSTRIKE, is much more direct.
The experiment to see if public reportage of a purported new disease spreading amongst the poplation requiring that all public meetings, and meeting places such as restauraants and motion picture theaters must be closed down to minimize the spread of the disease.
This program has proven to be effective and now FALCONSTRIKE II, aimed at the November elections, is in train.
………..
The social media and the informational sites have all been very strongly advised to avoid any mention of rigging or any discussion of the use of a new outbreak of coronavirus shutting down public voting.
Since a forced shut-down of the election would certaily be met with public uproar, the next step will be to move actual public voting to a vote-by-mail procedure.
On the suface this would appear to be acceptable to the public but in actuality, it would be easy to control and the outcome would be guaranteed to declare President TRUMP the winner.” The memo firmly but politely (and respectfully) requests POTUS to avoid any reference to the above matters in his TWITTER postings….”

Comment for May 13, 2020:”Now one notes that the Trump Administration is fearful of Russian interference in the 2020 Presidential election. But what about the more believable interference by the Trump Administration in the election? The growing rumors inside the Beltway is that this mysterious coronavirus attack was a trial effort on the part of the Trump people to see if they could prevent voters participating in the election, which would be postponed until some unspecified later date.”

Comment for May 12, 2020:”Our Beloved Leder is a narcissist. He thinks only of himself, his needs, his global importance, his worship by the rest of humanity. In that context, a most interesting study by a CIA specialist that got filched from secret Langley files and is now making the rounds here in DC, bizarre though it might sounds, in context with Trump’s mental problems makes complete, if criminally warped, sense. The thesis is that Trump realizes that he could somehow lose the next Presidential election. He could not accept this under any circumstances so he has been plotting to thwart his enemies, gain massive support by selected voters and remain in power. What is the plan? Firstly, to see if were possible to block a public election in November. He found he could when the corona virus conveniently broke out in Europe and America. It was not the same disease that conviently broke out in advance in China. He and his crime partners were able to use this to shut everything down…sports events, busineses, retail stores and even mass transit. From this he deduced that if a “renewal” of the virus broke out, say, in late October of this year, by election time, the polls would be shut down “to protect people from the deadly virus.” But they could vote be mail. To control this, Trump has cunningly threatened to shut off financial support for the USPS unless, of course, they cooperated with the perpetuation of his reign. A sick man whose mental illness doesn’t care how many people die but only that his glory continues to shine upon the American people.”

Comment for May 11, 2020:”In Europe today, especially in Germany, there is a growing belief that the coronavirus is a stone fraud. This does not mean that it is a stone fraud but that a large number of people believe it is. The lock-downs and, in America, the extraordinary economic chaos, is creating a rising tide of anti-government hostility and as a spin-off, the rumor that the entire virus business is a fake, designed for economic and public control. Time always tells in such things and there are elements of the affair that indeed are indicitaive of probably fraud.”

Comment for May 10, 2020:”Trump, as President, has clearly proven to be a total failure. His physical and emotional problems preclude him from making rational responses to serious crisis and we are now seeing the results of his disabilities. Businesses bankrupt, millions now unemployed, national policies veering sharply from side to side, massive inconsistanties, broken promises and overall, a feeling one is sitting in on a group therapy session at a clinic for mental problems. Both the far right and the Christian far right support Trump because like always gravitates to like but it is doubted that they are strong enough to reelect Trump to the Oval Office. And given his psychological problems, if Trump sees he is going to fail in November, he is apt to perpetrate some terrible act in the hopes that he will continue what he calls his ‘Kingship of America.’ It is known inside Washington power circles that Trump has had two heart attacks. Perhaps the stress of a campaign will bring on the final one.”

Comment for May 9, 2020:” “Who was Tyler Gatewood Kent? Kent was a code clerk at the US Embassy in London while Joe Kennedy was Ambassador to England.
He copied thousands of highly classified messages, passed some to the Germans and a few to Russian contacts.
He was caught and Kennedy allowed the British to prosecute him. He went to jail and the document copies were stashed away in England.
Somehow, someone got their hands on them, sent copies to the late Willis Carto and he, in turn, gave copies to Thomas K. Kimmel, Jr. grandson of Admiral Kimmel and then working at altitude for the FBI.
When Kimmel died recently in Florida, his collection of interesting documents passed to the hands of another.
Now, as I understand it, a German publisher has all the Kimmel horde and is planning to publish excerpts from the Kent papers.
I know that at least some of the papers prove that Roosevelt and Churchill were plotting to get the US into a war with Germany.
Also, there were nasty comments by Kennedy who called Churchill “a fat little alcoholic fairy” and mention of the Duke of Windsor as a “lisping fairy.”
There are other discussions that, when published, will cause havoc in England and great interest in Germany.
I would publish on the Internet myself but it would be better to wait until the book(s) come out first.
Would the German government crack down on the publisher?
I spoke with a good friend in the German State Attorney’s office and they said they would not.
They are very tired of the CIA trying to run Germany and are planning to get out of both Nato and the EU.
I could mention more interesting historical facts in detail but this is not the medium for that.
Truth is mighty, sir, and shall prevail.”

Washington, D.C. May 7, 2020: Working in the White House as a junior staffer is an interesting experience.

election in 2020, he will not leave the White House. I have news for Donald but this is not the place to discuss it. “
Comment for May 8, 2020:” Dealing with Trump, at a high level, is like trying to herd cats or pick up mercury. Not possible. He waffles, lies, erupts and generally behaves like the ero-centric they are. Here is a clear description of the narcissist. “In psychological terms, narcissism doesn’t mean self-love—at least not of a genuine sort. It’s more accurate to say that people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) are in love with an idealized, grandiose image of themselves. And they’re in love with this inflated self-image precisely because it allows them to avoid deep feelings of insecurity. But propping up their delusions of grandeur takes a lot of work—and that’s where the dysfunctional attitudes and behaviors come in.
Narcissistic personality disorder involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding. This way of thinking and behaving surfaces in every area of the narcissist’s life: from work and friendships to family and love relationships.
People with narcissistic personality disorder are extremely resistant to changing their behavior, even when it’s causing them problems. Their tendency is to turn the blame on to others. What’s more, they are extremely sensitive and react badly to even the slightest criticisms, disagreements, or perceived slights, which they view as personal attacks. For the people in the narcissist’s life, it’s often easier just to go along with their demands to avoid the coldness and rages. However, by understanding more about narcissistic personality disorder, you can spot the narcissists in your life, protect yourself from their power plays, and establish healthier boundaries.
Signs and symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder
Grandiose sense of self-importance
Grandiosity is the defining characteristic of narcissism. More than just arrogance or vanity, grandiosity is an unrealistic sense of superiority. Narcissists believe they are unique or “special” and can only be understood by other special people. What’s more, they are too good for anything average or ordinary. They only want to associate and be associated with other high-status people, places, and things.
Narcissists also believe that they’re better than everyone else and expect recognition as such—even when they’ve done nothing to earn it. They will often exaggerate or outright lie about their achievements and talents. And when they talk about work or relationships, all you’ll hear is how much they contribute, how great they are, and how lucky the people in their lives are to have them. They are the undisputed star and everyone else is at best a bit player.
Lives in a fantasy world that supports their delusions of grandeur
Since reality doesn’t support their grandiose view of themselves, narcissists live in a fantasy world propped up by distortion, self-deception, and magical thinking. They spin self-glorifying fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, attractiveness, and ideal love that make them feel special and in control. These fantasies protect them from feelings of inner emptiness and shame, so facts and opinions that contradict them are ignored or rationalized away. Anything that threatens to burst the fantasy bubble is met with extreme defensiveness and even rage, so those around the narcissist learn to tread carefully around their denial of reality.
Needs constant praise and admiration
A narcissist’s sense of superiority is like a balloon that gradually loses air without a steady stream of applause and recognition to keep it inflated. The occasional compliment is not enough. Narcissists need constant food for their ego, so they surround themselves with people who are willing to cater to their obsessive craving for affirmation. These relationships are very one-sided. It’s all about what the admirer can do for the narcissist, never the other way around. And if there is ever an interruption or diminishment in the admirer’s attention and praise, the narcissist treats it as a betrayal.
Sense of entitlement
Because they consider themselves special, narcissists expect favorable treatment as their due. They truly believe that whatever they want, they should get. They also expect the people around them to automatically comply with their every wish and whim. That is their only value. If you don’t anticipate and meet their every need, then you’re useless. And if you have the nerve to defy their will or “selfishly” ask for something in return, prepare yourself for aggression, outrage, or the cold shoulder.
Exploits others without guilt or shame
Narcissists never develop the ability to identify with the feelings of others—to put themselves in other people’s shoes. In other words, they lack empathy. In many ways, they view the people in their lives as objects—there to serve their needs. As a consequence, they don’t think twice about taking advantage of others to achieve their own ends. Sometimes this interpersonal exploitation is malicious, but often it is simply oblivious. Narcissists simply don’t think about how their behavior affects others. And if you point it out, they still won’t truly get it. The only thing they understand is their own needs.
Frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies, or belittles others
Narcissists feel threatened whenever they encounter someone who appears to have something they lack—especially those who are confident and popular. They’re also threatened by people who don’t kowtow to them or who challenge them in any way. Their defense mechanism is contempt. The only way to neutralize the threat and prop up their own sagging ego is to put those people down. They may do it in a patronizing or dismissive way as if to demonstrate how little the other person means to them. Or they may go on the attack with insults, name-calling, bullying, and threats to force the other person back into line. (helpguide)

They only want to associate and be associated with other high-status people, places, and things.
Narcissists also believe that they’re better than everyone else and expect recognition as such—even when they’ve done nothing to earn it. They will often exaggerate or outright lie about their achievements and talents. And when they talk about work or relationships, all you’ll hear is how much they contribute, how great they are, and how lucky the people in their lives are to have them. They are the undisputed star and everyone else is at best a bit player.
Lives in a fantasy world that supports their delusions of grandeur
Since reality doesn’t support their grandiose view of themselves, narcissists live in a fantasy world propped up by distortion, self-deception, and magical thinking. They spin self-glorifying fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, attractiveness, and ideal love that make them feel special and in control. These fantasies protect them from feelings of inner emptiness and shame, so facts and opinions that contradict them are ignored or rationalized away. Anything that threatens to burst the fantasy bubble is met with extreme defensiveness and even rage, so those around the narcissist learn to tread carefully around their denial of reality.
Needs constant praise and admiration
A narcissist’s sense of superiority is like a balloon that gradually loses air without a steady stream of applause and recognition to keep it inflated. The occasional compliment is not enough. Narcissists need constant food for their ego, so they surround themselves with people who are willing to cater to their obsessive craving for affirmation. These relationships are very one-sided. It’s all about what the admirer can do for the narcissist, never the other way around. And if there is ever an interruption or diminishment in the admirer’s attention and praise, the narcissist treats it as a betrayal.
Sense of entitlement
Because they consider themselves special, narcissists expect favorable treatment as their due. They truly believe that whatever they want, they should get. They also expect the people around them to automatically comply with their every wish and whim. That is their only value. If you don’t anticipate and meet their every need, then you’re useless. And if you have the nerve to defy their will or “selfishly” ask for something in return, prepare yourself for aggression, outrage, or the cold shoulder.
Exploits others without guilt or shame
Narcissists never develop the ability to identify with the feelings of others—to put themselves in other people’s shoes. In other words, they lack empathy. In many ways, they view the people in their lives as objects—there to serve their needs. As a consequence, they don’t think twice about taking advantage of others to achieve their own ends. Sometimes this interpersonal exploitation is malicious, but often it is simply oblivious. Narcissists simply don’t think about how their behavior affects others. And if you point it out, they still won’t truly get it. The only thing they understand is their own needs.
Frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies, or belittles others
Narcissists feel threatened whenever they encounter someone who appears to have something they lack—especially those who are confident and popular. They’re also threatened by people who don’t kowtow to them or who challenge them in any way. Their defense mechanism is contempt. The only way to neutralize the threat and prop up their own sagging ego is to put those people down. They may do it in a patronizing or dismissive way as if to demonstrate how little the other person means to them. Or they may go on the attack with insults, name-calling, bullying, and threats to force the other person back into line. (helpguide)

The Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C. May 5, 2020: Working in the White House as a junior staffer is an interesting experience.
When I was younger, I worked as a summer-time job in a clinic for people who had moderate to severe mental problems and the current work closely, at times, echos the earlier one.
I am not an intimate of the President but I have encountered him from time to time and I daily see manifestations of his growing psychological problems.
He insults people, uses foul language, is frantic to see his name mentioned on main-line television and pays absolutely no attention to any advice from his staff that runs counter to his strange ideas.
He lies like a rug to everyone, eats like a hog, makes lewd remarks to female staffers and flies into rages if anyone dares to contradict him.
It is becoming more and more evident to even the least intelligent American voter that Trump is vicious, corrupt and amoral. He has stated often that even if he loses the
election in 2020, he will not leave the White House. I have news for Donald but this is not the place to discuss it. “
Comment for May 5, 2020:” Dealing with Trump, at a high level, is like trying to herd cats or pick up mercury. Not possible. He waffles, lies, erupts and generally behaves like the ero-centric they are. Here is a clear description of the narcissist. “In psychological terms, narcissism doesn’t mean self-love—at least not of a genuine sort. It’s more accurate to say that people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) are in love with an idealized, grandiose image of themselves. And they’re in love with this inflated self-image precisely because it allows them to avoid deep feelings of insecurity. But propping up their delusions of grandeur takes a lot of work—and that’s where the dysfunctional attitudes and behaviors come in.
Narcissistic personality disorder involves a pattern of self-centered, arrogant thinking and behavior, a lack of empathy and consideration for other people, and an excessive need for admiration. Others often describe people with NPD as cocky, manipulative, selfish, patronizing, and demanding. This way of thinking and behaving surfaces in every area of the narcissist’s life: from work and friendships to family and love relationships.
People with narcissistic personality disorder are extremely resistant to changing their behavior, even when it’s causing them problems. Their tendency is to turn the blame on to others. What’s more, they are extremely sensitive and react badly to even the slightest criticisms, disagreements, or perceived slights, which they view as personal attacks. For the people in the narcissist’s life, it’s often easier just to go along with their demands to avoid the coldness and rages. However, by understanding more about narcissistic personality disorder, you can spot the narcissists in your life, protect yourself from their power plays, and establish healthier boundaries.

Grandiose sense of self-importance
Grandiosity is the defining characteristic of narcissism. More than just arrogance or vanity, grandiosity is an unrealistic sense of superiority. Narcissists believe they are unique or “special” and can only be understood by other special people. What’s more, they are too good for anything average or ordinary. They only want to associate and be associated with other high-status people, places, and things.
