THE NARCISSISTIC CHILD ~ Tom Leonard on “Think the President’s a Bully Now? You Shoulda Seen Him as a Boy!”

A pint-sized bully who loved to pull girls’ hair and once lobbed rocks at a toddler in his playpen. A loud-mouthed classroom know-all who could never admit he was wrong and boasted of giving the music teacher a black eye. And a sporting show-off who yearned to hear the crowd’s applause…  but who would smash his baseball bat in fury if he didn’t win.

Arrogant, over-bearing, thin-skinned, determined, and not exactly great with the ladies — does this portrait of a child growing up in Fifties surburban New York sound like a certain grown-up (well, sort of grown-up) currently strutting the world stage?

It was Aristotle who said “Give me the child until he’s seven and I will show you the man”, and Donald Trump, now 73, would certainly agree. The 45th U.S. President insists he’s much the same character now as he was when he was in junior school.

According to Trump Revealed, a new biography compiled by Washington Post journalists who spoke to dozens of people who knew Trump as a child, he’s not wrong. The psychological resemblance is uncanny, and not a little disconcerting.

Born in June 1946, Trump was the fourth of five children to Fred Trump, a ruthless Queens builder and property developer, and his Scottish-born wife, Mary, an immigrant who had fled poverty on the Isle of Lewis and met Fred at a dance in New York. Trump Sr was a dour, authoritarian patriarch who dressed in a jacket and tie even at home.

They were the envy of their neighbours with a chauffeur, cook, colour television, intercom system and two Cadillacs with consecutive personalised number plates (virtually nobody had one back then but, of course, the showy Trumps had two).

Donald — with his ten-speed Italian racing bike and a huge, elaborate model train set — made the local children green with envy.

He clearly left an impression on his neighbours, classmates and teachers because so many could remember at least one chilling anecdote about him 60 years later.

When a ball bounced into their garden, he threatened to tell his father and the police about those responsible.

Dennis Burnham, who lived next door, was a toddler when his mother briefly put him in a playpen in their garden. She returned a few minutes later to find the current U.S. president, then aged five or six, standing at his fence throwing rocks at the little boy.

His mother warned Dennis to “stay away from the Trumps” as they didn’t want him “beaten up” by the family bully.

Another local child, Steven Nachtigall, now a 66-year-old doctor, said he never forgot Trump, a “loudmouth bully”,  once jumping off his bike and pummelling another boy.

The disturbing image remained in his brain decades later, he said, because “it was so unusual and terrifying at that age”.

The 45th U.S. President insists he’s much the same character now as he was when he was in junior school

Young Donald — whose nicknames at school included Donny, The Trumpet and Flat Top (for the blond pompadour hairstyle he had even as a child) — picked mercilessly on his own little brother, Robert, a quiet and sensitive child.

The future property tycoon later liked to boast how he once stole Robert’s building blocks and, so pleased with what he built, glued them together so his brother could never use them again.

With his siblings, Donald went to a smart private primary school called Kew-Fores, where he quickly became notorious for being unruly, going around with a gang of boys who pulled girls’ hair and talked during class.

“He would sit with his arms folded with this look on his face — I used the word surly — almost daring you to say one thing or another that wouldn’t settle with him,” recalled former teacher Ann Trees.

It’s an image that anyone who saw one of the 2016 Republican presidential debates can easily imagine.

Ditto, a former classmate, recalled a boy who would never admit he was wrong, no matter how trivial the subject. “He had a reputation for saying anything that came into his head,” he added.

Trump spent so much time in detention that the punishment was nicknamed “DT” in his honour.

When he was seven, he yanked classmate Sharon Mazzarella’s pigtails. She chased him downstairs and smashed him over the head with her metal lunchbox.

Trump admits he was a troublemaker at primary school. “I liked to stir things up and I liked to test people,” he said years later. “It wasn’t malicious so much as it was aggressive.” Trump bragged for a long time that, aged eight, he almost got expelled for giving his music teacher a black eye “because I didn’t think he knew anything about music”. 

However, it later emerged he had exaggerated. The teacher, Charles Walker, remembered Trump as supremely attention-seeking. Told on his deathbed that Trump was running for president, he reportedly remarked that even at ten, Donny had been a “little sh*t”.

“When I look at myself in first grade and I look at myself now, I’m basically the same,” Trump told a biographer.

“The temperament is not that different.”

From most other adults, such an observation would sound endearing. Now, as he stands with his finger on the nuclear trigger, as President of the United States, it’s more than a little terrifying.

CHRIS THURMAN: “There’s a Sociopath in the White House”

“It is disconcerting that anyone in the country is still arguing about whether or not Trump is a misogynist, racist, xenophobe, or narcissist. He is. Actions speak louder than words, and the many things Trump has said and done throughout his life speak to these defects being true. If anything disturbs Trump’s sleep, it is the threat that sooner or later the investigative reporters he calls ‘fake news’ and government leaders and legal authorities he says are on a ‘witch hunt’ will expose his worst wrongdoings and he will finally have to pay for them. Trump is terrified by the possibility of his darkest deeds coming to light and costing him his presidency and possibly sending him to prison. Every president does wrong things. All human beings do. That’s not the issue. The issue is whether or not a president has a conscience. If they do, they will admit when they act badly, take full responsibility, experience guilt and remorse, and turn from their misdeeds. If they don’t, they’ll refuse to admit they have done anything wrong, blame others for their actions, have no empathy or compassion toward those they hurt, and continue in their wrongdoings. Trump has spent his life in the latter category, surrounding himself with people who are unhealthy enough to support him every step of the way. There’s a sociopath in the White House. If some of us don’t think so and want to keep supporting Trump, I would suggest there are none so blind as they who will not see.”

~Chris Thurman

 

Every time I watch a Donald J. Trump rally, I find myself not listening to the president but looking at the people behind him who cheer his every word. The troubling thought that goes through my mind is “There are none so blind as they who will not see.”

Many of Trump’s supporters seem oblivious to the truly dangerous mental and moral defects in our current president. I don’t say that as a hit job or attack given that I am a staunch conservative by political orientation. I say that because I believe it to be objectively true about Trump and that things are only going to get worse under his leadership.

It is heartbreaking to see the signs Trump supporters hold up at his rallies. I see women holding up “Women for Trump” signs when he is a known sexual predator and serial adulterer. I see African-Americans holding up “Blacks for Trump” signs when he is a known racist and white supremacist. I see former military servicemen and women holding up “Veterans for Trump” signs when he is a cowardly draft dodger. I see evangelicals holding up “We Support Trump” signs when there is little if any evidence he is a Christian or even holds Christian values. I see people struggling to make ends meet holding up signs of support for Trump when he has done nothing but look out for the wealthiest of the wealthy while enriching himself in office and not caring about the financial plight of the average citizen.

Is Trump a Sociopath?

It is disconcerting that anyone in the country is still arguing about whether or not Trump is a misogynist, racist, xenophobe, or narcissist. He is. Actions speak louder than words, and the many things Trump has said and done throughout his life speak to these defects being true. His presidential campaign was driven by racist sentiment, and after becoming president, he proposed barring Muslims from entering the United States. Trump ignores reality and is unremorseful about how often he twists it in ways that build his ego.

If we could stop denying these painful realities about our president, we might have to face an even more frightening possibility: Trump is a sociopath.

Seven markers suggest that a person is a sociopath. A sociopath chronically lies in an effort to deceive others and enhance his public image; acts impulsively and fails to plan; refuses to conform to social norms and repeatedly performs acts that are grounds for legal action and arrest; mistreats those who are critical or unsupportive; disregards the well-being of others; fails to sustain consistent work habits or honor financial obligations; and lacks guilt or remorse when hurtful to others.

Anyone who has studied Trump over the years would probably agree that this is an accurate description of our president.

Trump is a pathological liar, and recently cracked the 12,000 false or misleading statements barrier. He acts impulsively and fails to plan ahead, the best and most horrific example being his border policy that led to inhumane conditions for those detained and children being separated but infrequently reunited with their parents. He violates social norms all the time, even small ones, for example when he served a national championship team fast-food at the White House.

He is frequently verbally abusive toward people who criticize him, calling them all kinds of horrible names. Trump lacks empathy, and once told a grieving widow that her husband “knew what he had signed up for” when he enlisted in the military. He has no sensitivity to how his name-calling and verbal attacks are hurtful.

Lack of Conscience

According to psychologist Martha Stout and author of the book The Sociopath Next Door,

“The central trait of sociopathy is a complete lack of conscience, which is very difficult for most people to get their heads around, because those of us who do have a conscience can’t really imagine what it would be like if we didn’t. Most people think that deep down everybody has a conscience, and it turns out that’s just not true.”

 

Trump doesn’t appear to have a conscience like most of us do, and that is the main reason he can act in such illegal, unethical, and immoral ways and sleep like a baby at night.

If anything disturbs Trump’s sleep, it is the threat that sooner or later the investigative reporters he calls “fake news” and government leaders and legal authorities he says are on a “witch hunt” will expose his worst wrongdoings and he will finally have to pay for them. Trump is terrified by the possibility of his darkest deeds coming to light and costing him his presidency and possibly sending him to prison.

Every president does wrong things. All human beings do. That’s not the issue.

The issue is whether or not a president has a conscience. If they do, they will admit when they act badly, take full responsibility, experience guilt and remorse, and turn from their misdeeds. If they don’t, they’ll refuse to admit they have done anything wrong, blame others for their actions, have no empathy or compassion toward those they hurt, and continue in their wrongdoings.

Trump has spent his life in the latter category, surrounding himself with people who are unhealthy enough to support him every step of the way.

There’s a sociopath in the White House. If some of us don’t think so and want to keep supporting Trump, I would suggest there are none so blind as they who will not see.

LISA RENEE: “All or Nothing Thinking”

“All-or-nothing thinking refers to thinking in extremes. You are either a success or a failure. Something is right or it’s wrong. In order to overcome all-or-nothing thinking, it is important to avoid thinking in negative, absolute terms. Most often the narcissist does this as an attempt to stabilize their sense of self positivity in order to preserve their Self Esteem, by perceiving themselves as purely upright or admirable and others who do not conform to their will or values as purely wicked or contemptible.”

~Lisa Renee

 

Cognitive Distortions are exaggerated, obsessive or irrational thought patterns that are believed to perpetuate the effects of psychopathological states, especially depression and anxiety. When we over-rely on cognitive distortions, we usually interpret events in such a way that fuels emotions such as anxiety, depression, or anger. All-or-nothing thinking is one such distortion. All-or-nothing thinking refers to thinking in extremes. You are either a success or a failure. Something is right or it’s wrong. These are examples of all-or-nothing thinking (also known as black-and-white thinking). Thoughts and beliefs that are grounded in pessimism can negatively impact your feelings, emotions, and mental health.

In order to overcome all-or-nothing thinking, it is important to avoid thinking in negative, absolute terms. Learning how to clear Negative Ego through refocusing thoughts is suggested to help relieve Mental Anxiety and stress related to negative emotions exacerbated by negative thoughts.

Splitting 

(All-or-nothing thinking or dichotomous reasoning): 

  • Evaluating the self, as well as events in life in extreme terms.
  • It’s either all good or all bad, either black or white, nothing in between.
  • Causing every small imperfection to seem incredibly dangerous and painful.
  • Splitting involves using terms like “always”, “every” or “never” when this is neither true nor equivalent to the truth. Example: When an admired person makes a minor mistake, the admiration is turned into contempt. [1]

Narcissistic Personality Disorder

People matching the diagnostic criteria for narcissistic personality disorder also use splitting as a central Ego Defense Mechanism. Most often the narcissist does this as an attempt to stabilize their sense of self positivity in order to preserve their Self Esteem, by perceiving themselves as purely upright or admirable and others who do not conform to their will or values as purely wicked or contemptible. Given the narcissist’s perverse sense of entitlement and Splitting, he or she can be equally geared, psychologically and practically, towards the promotion of projects, simultaneously promoting the demise of a certain collectively beneficial project.

The cognitive habit of splitting also implies the use of other related Ego Defense Mechanisms, namely idealization and devaluation, which are preventative attitudes or reactions to Narcissistic Rage and narcissistic injury.

THE NEW WORLD DISORDER ~ Lisa Renee on “Soulless AI Infected Synthetic Beings”

“The NAA and their minions of soulless AI infected synthetic beings do not have the bio-circuitry for empathy. We are in essence, in a struggle between human Empaths, and alien hybridized humans and extra-dimensional aliens that are Non-Empaths. Without experiencing feelings of empathy for humanity that give rise to holding reverence for the sentient consciousness within all life, we can more easily see how those put into power are capable of committing grave harm to others without remorse. The escalation of corruption, bribery and technological abuse that are being forced upon us by the controlled powers of the corporatocracy are very difficult to observe.”

What Is Lack of Empathy?

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “What Is Lack of Empathy?”

“Sociopathic people are masters at weaving elaborate fictional explanations to justify their actions. When caught red-handed, they respond with anger and threats, then weave new fabrications to explain away whatever they were caught doing. Sociopaths do not feel empathy for others, but instead mimic emotional states, when they learn that is the socially accepted behavior they must express in order to get what they want. Empathy has many different definitions that encompass a broad range of emotional states, such as caring for other people and having a desire to help them; experiencing emotions that match another person’s emotions; discerning what another person is thinking or feeling; and making less distinct the differences between the self and the other. It also is the ability to feel and share another person’s emotions. Empathy is a direct function of the true emotional body within the human being’s spiritual template, the complete soul matrix”

~Lisa Renee

 

Narcissistic Personalities and Psychopaths have little to no remorse for the harm, destruction or killing they cause any person, place or thing. This is described as a Lack of Empathy, which is characterized by the inability to feel, experience deep emotional states, or discern what another life form may be feeling. Lack of Empathy is a mutation in the DNA of a species that has been disconnected from its Soul-Spirit, and thus suffers from genetic damage and Soul Fragmentation.

Most of the Negative Aliens and those humans serving the NAA are unable to feel, experience or express higher emotions, such as emotive and empathetic states of loving kindness or Compassion. Essentially, with a Lack of Empathy as a Archontic Deception value system, it is easy to program killing machines that have no remorse for their actions nor care of the consequences made from their actions that cause harm to others.

The Negative Aliens have downloaded their genetic mutations through Mind Control technologies which manifest as a severe Lack of Empathy within the collective consciousness of the human race, in order to control the planet to ultimately serve their divide and conquer agenda. A major control mechanism is to enforce the cycles of Victim-Victimizer programming in the population of the earth.

Genetic Damage

From the genetic level of their form-bodies template, Lack of Empathy is stemming from not having an emotional body, of which the higher feeling and emotional-sensory bodies are the primary functions of the Soul Matrix. Without a soul body this type of disconnected being, whether human or non-human, has no feeling body except for the lower functioning of the Instinctual Mind. The 2nd Chakra functions as the Instinctual Mind and this becomes the substitute for the instinctual levels that are expressed in some type of perceived emotional state. In truth, this Instinctual Mind aka Pain Body is not an emotional body, it has been mutated from soul damage and become a distorted center of aberrant Miasma energies and instincts that are misunderstood as “emotions”. These states are not true self generated emotions, they are instinctual states absorbed through the collective consciousness.

One may not experience true states of love or emotional spectrums until they begin to connect with their Soul Matrix bodies or have been able to experience a loving, and open heart center with the activated 4th Chakra from being incarnated with this Soul-Spirit connection in tact. Many people have lost their soul connection from early experiences of extreme trauma and suffering, SRA, abuse, child rape and molestation, etc. This abuse starts during childhood with the Archontic Deception Behaviors strategy of the NAA to generate the cycle of repeating Victim-Victimizer archetypes in the population of earth. When a human being is being consistently victimized as young as possible, he or she grows into the role of a victimizer. This enforces the repetition of this abusive pattern that creates many more narcissists, psychopaths, and traumatized people on the earth.

The heart center is the connection point for the soul. Some genetics are immediately able to have this capacity to feel deeply and have an open heart center, more than others. Those particular genetics that are fully capable of feeling deeply and generating love and higher emotional states are those that have retained their inner spirit’s Christ Seed Atom.

Death Culture

The Death Culture is used to promote these destructive lifestyles in order to permanently damage the human heart, further damaging the Soul and Brain into some kind of form of mental body fragmentation or dissociation. Dissociative behaviours eliminate all traces of true human empathy and remove the accountability towards the ethical implication that is behind the operations in the current 3D world’s social, political, military, and corporate structures, in order to continue to carry the anti-soul agenda out. This manifests an assortment of walls of separation throughout society because fragmentation and Compartmentalization are also very much related to the creation of internal walls of separation within the consciousness body. This is something structural that exists in us, and can exist inside of us in terms of interfering with the proper function of our lightbody. When these internal walls of separation are built within the 1st, 2nd or 3rd chakras, this is when people have internalized these walls of separation as a result of experiencing extreme trauma or pain that originally caused the state of dissociation.

Sociopaths

Sociopaths are masters at influence, Emotional Manipulation and deception. Very little of what they say actually checks out in terms of facts or reality, but they’re extremely skillful at making the things they say sound believable, even if they’re just making them up out of thin air. Sociopathic people are masters at weaving elaborate fictional explanations to justify their actions. When caught red-handed, they respond with anger and threats, then weave new fabrications to explain away whatever they were caught doing. Sociopaths do not feel empathy for others, but instead mimic emotional states, when they learn that is the socially accepted behavior they must express in order to get what they want.

What Is Empathy?

Empathy has many different definitions that encompass a broad range of emotional states, such as caring for other people and having a desire to help them; experiencing emotions that match another person’s emotions; discerning what another person is thinking or feeling; and making less distinct the differences between the self and the other. It also is the ability to feel and share another person’s emotions. Empathy is a direct function of the true emotional body within the human being’s spiritual template, the complete soul matrix.

Compassion and sympathy are two terms that many associate with empathy, but all three of these terms are unique. Compassion is an heart based emotion we feel when others are in need, which motivates us to help them uplift themselves. Sympathy is a feeling of care and understanding for someone in need or in pain.

Altruism

Altruism or Humanitarianism is the behavior of Service to Others that holds the capacity to feel empathy and compassion for others, and is aimed at benefiting another person, group or the planet. Egotism is a behavior that is acted out for purely personal gain or Service to Self.

Since empathy involves understanding feelings or the capacity to feel the emotional states of other people, the way emotions are characterized in one’s personal experience is how the emotions will be characterized for others having similar experiences. The ability to imagine oneself as another person in their position and be able to feel what they may be feeling in those circumstances,(standing in another persons shoes) is a sophisticated imaginative process which develops Compassion.

Humans seem to make the same immediate connection between the tone of voice and other vocal expressions and inner feeling. Empathy is distinctly different from sympathy, pity, and emotional contagion. Sympathy or empathic concern is the feeling of Compassion or concern for another, and the wish to see them better off or happier. Pity is feeling that another is in trouble and in need of help as they cannot fix their problems themselves, often described as “feeling sorry” for someone. Emotional contagion is when a person (especially an infant or a member of a mob, group consciousness) imitatively “catches” the emotions that others are showing without necessarily recognizing this is happening.

The goal of spiritual development is to be fully present and aware to emotional states and to choose the emotional states one expresses, instead of being at the whim of the undisciplined emotional states generated from within the Pain Body.

Empaths vs Non Empaths

When we look at the larger Galactic picture of consciousness enslavement, we see the NAA and Controllers multiple pronged agenda to target the brain, CNS and thought forms of every person on the earth. Through the agenda of Transhumanism, we see the promotion of hybridization and synthetic integration with artificial neural networks for control over the CNS and Brain. What is starting to surface with more clarity is that our human Neurobiology is wired for empathy, which connects us to higher consciousness and has a spiritual function. The NAA and their minions of soulless AI infected synthetic beings do not have the bio-circuitry for empathy. We are in essence, in a struggle between human Empaths, and alien hybridized humans and extra-dimensional aliens that are Non-Empaths.

Without experiencing feelings of empathy for humanity that give rise to holding reverence for the sentient consciousness within all life, we can more easily see how those put into power are capable of committing grave harm to others without remorse. When a huge segment of the population is disconnected from life and devoid of empathy, we can better observe how these destructive thoughtforms are more easily shaped into value systems of material possession and ownership. The escalation of corruption, bribery and technological abuse that are being forced upon us by the controlled powers of the corporatocracy are very difficult to observe. We are inundated with deceptive marketing campaigns and the clever use of intimidation to force submission into the larger agendas of bio-neurological control tied into mass consumerism.

People are being intimidated to make their own babies and children experimental guinea pigs, for developing the future generation of disconnected bio-tech and drug consumers. We are living in a transitional time, which means we will have to face the hard decisions about what we can do to remove ourselves from feeding into the vast global system of consciousness enslavement and mind control. It is worthwhile to do the research, and look at the skyrocketing statistics for bio-neurological diseases, and consider who and what wants to gain complete control over human and animal Bio-Neurology. What are the many unethical methods being used to gain bio-neurological control over people that are making them sick? If we are willing to open our mind to see the clear picture of corporate interests devoid of empathy for human beings, then we can see they are hiding a much larger global agenda of bio-neurological control. Then we can take some steps to empower ourselves. We can take back our consciousness power through informed consent, and stay present and aware of larger agendas in order to protect our nervous system and brain.

There is little to no information available to help people understand that our bio-neurological functions are directly responsible for interconnection with our spiritual bodies, and that if our Bio-Neurology is hacked we are effectively disconnected from our emotions, heart and Soul. When we are disconnected, we lack empathy. Therefore, there is little knowledge given to the public about the nervous system’s critical role in experiencing the energetic interconnection with life, including feeling empathy, spiritual awakening, cellular telepathy and developing all forms of higher sensory perception. A brain being controlled by the thought impulses sent from artificial neural networks, does not feel empathy or connected with life. The health and functioning of the CNS and brain are the most critical components in properly transmitting the DNA’s electromagnetic signals and frequency impulses, which also communicate directly with the etheric neural networks that exist within our Soul-Spirit bodies. During the Ascension Cycle, for those awakening as well as the new generations being born, some humans are experiencing a positive range of genetic mutations that are impacting nervous system development and brain processing. As the countermeasure, many in the medical community are pressured to heavily medicate all people that fit under diagnostic labels for spiritual crisis, or under umbrella terms used for neurodevelopmental disorders, such as ADHD and the Autism spectrum.

If our Bio-Neurology is continually assaulted, implanted, drugged, and overloaded with cocktails of energetic and chemical toxins, not only does this negatively impact immunity and health it easily blocks messaging between the body, brain and the higher consciousness bodies. When the human body is inundated with many low frequency electrical signals combined with specific chemical toxins, they produce unique etheric implants that block the higher frequency messaging between the nervous system and brain. As an example, it has been observed that the type of electrical emission patterns and/or Chemtrail substances sprayed into an area are commonly matched with certain manufactured lots of flu shots that are made available in the same location. Electrical emissions into the local environment combined with chemicals and/or injections produce a range of bio-chemical effects, including bio-neurological and consciousness effects, on the public. When methods are used to block neural impulses in the CNS, this impairs the brain’s ability to process emotional states and recall memory.

Further, this blocks the brain from receiving communication signals at higher frequencies, that exist above the lower frequency scale of material reality. This combination is commonly used as a type of localized electro-chemical induced frequency fence for suppressing the human Bio-Neurology. Therefore, the frequency fences block higher consciousness development as it impairs bio-spiritual evolution by suppressing empathic feelings and blocking the ascension process for that individual. In order to remove the frequency fence from suppressing our consciousness, we first have to see that it actually exists. By intentionally choosing to express more unconditional love, empathy and compassion as a lifestyle, this supports consciousness freedom and that is what allows us to go beyond the assortment of frequency fences.
