CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “The Great Unpatterning Continues — Make Sure You Take Advantage Of It”

“I often hear people in my line of work saying ‘Man, we’re going to look back on all this crazy sh*t and think about how absolutely weird it was!’ No we won’t. Because it’s only going to get weirder. It’s only going to get weirder, because that’s what it looks like when old patterns start to fall away. The human mind is conditioned to look for patterns in order to establish a baseline of normal expectations upon which to plan out future actions. This perceptual framework exists to give us safety and security, so disruptions in the patterns upon which it is based often feel weird, threatening, and scary. They make us feel insecure, because our cognitive tool for staying in control of our wellbeing has a glitch in it. This great unpatterning is going to continue, in many wild and unexpected ways. And things are going to keep getting stranger. Watch for gaps in the armor of the establishment oppression machine. Watch for gaps in the deluded nature of our society. Watch for gaps in the patterns, and use your wisdom and creativity to assist them in unpatterning as the opportunity presents itself.”

In an attempt to contain the COVID-19 pandemic the president of the United States has just announced a 30-day travel ban between the US and Europe, the super-rich are flying off to disaster bunkers, and the NBA has just suspended its season.

If this is the first you’re hearing of this, go ahead and read it again if you need to.

This is all news that came out minutes prior to this writing. There may have been many other immense news stories by the time you read it.

This is a level of disruption that the world hasn’t seen in generations. Normal things that had been a routine part of people’s entire lives are just not there for them now, whether it’s normal socializing, watching the basketball game, or buying toilet paper at the store.

I said the following last month in an article titled 2020 Is Going To Get Much Crazier. Prioritize Your Mental Health.“:

“As I said back in November, things are going to get weirder and weirder throughout the foreseeable future. We’re coming to a point in history where the only reliable pattern is the disintegration of patterns, and 2020 has come storming out of its corner swinging for the fences working to establish this pattern with extreme aggression. We’re not going to hit a point of stability or normality this year, we’re going to see things get crazier and crazier and crazier. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know it’s going to be nuts.”

 

And by Jove if that isn’t proving true in some bizarre and unexpected ways. I certainly wasn’t expecting the coronavirus to play a role in that unpatterning at the time — in fact I was dismissive of it when it first emerged — but we’re seeing a disruption in collective patterns and routines like nothing most of us can even recall.

Here’s what I said back in November:

I often hear people in my line of work saying “Man, we’re going to look back on all this crazy sh*t and think about how absolutely weird it was!”

No we won’t. Because it’s only going to get weirder.

It’s only going to get weirder, because that’s what it looks like when old patterns start to fall away.

The human mind is conditioned to look for patterns in order to establish a baseline of normal expectations upon which to plan out future actions. This perceptual framework exists to give us safety and security, so disruptions in the patterns upon which it is based often feel weird, threatening, and scary. They make us feel insecure, because our cognitive tool for staying in control of our wellbeing has a glitch in it.

When you’re talking about a species that has been consistently patterned towards its own destruction, though, a disruption of patterns is a good thing. Our ecocidal, warmongering tendencies have brought us to a point that now has us staring down the barrel of our own extinction, and that is where we are surely headed if we continue patterning along the behavioral trajectory that we have been on. Only a drastic change of patterns can change that trajectory. And we are seeing a change of patterns.

This great unpatterning is going to continue, in many wild and unexpected ways. And things are going to keep getting stranger.

All of humanity’s problems are the result of our collective conditioning patterns throughout history. Where there is pattern disruption, there is the opportunity for pattern divergence. Where there is movement, there are gaps. Where there are gaps, there is an opportunity for light to get through.

The clear-eyed rebel’s job, therefore, is to watch for opportunities to help lead us as a collective along a brand new, healthy trajectory. There’s no way to know in advance what those opportunities will look like, because predictability is premised on pattern consistency. But they will appear, from unpredictable and unanticipated new directions. Wherever you see a gap, your job is to pour as much truth and wisdom and health into it as you can possibly muster.

Watch for gaps in the armor of the establishment oppression machine. Watch for gaps in the deluded nature of our society. Watch for gaps in the patterns, and use your wisdom and creativity to assist them in unpatterning as the opportunity presents itself.

2020 is still just getting warmed up.

Eyes wide, beautiful people.

‘NAVIGATING TUMULTUOUS WATERS’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone: “2020 Is Going To Get Much Crazier — Prioritize Your Mental Health”

As I said back in November, things are going to get weirder and weirder throughout the foreseeable future. We’re coming to a point in history where the only reliable pattern is the disintegration of patterns, and 2020 has come storming out of its corner swinging for the fences working to establish this pattern with extreme aggression. We’re not going to hit a point of stability or normality this year, we’re going to see things get crazier and crazier and crazier. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know it’s going to be nuts.

In such an environment, it’s going to be absolutely essential to take exceptional care of your psychological health if you want to remain engaged with what’s going on in the world in a positive way.

And I do mean exceptional. Whatever you’re doing now, do more. Start cultivating new habits to keep yourself lucid and serene, and start now before things get super crazy. Work out your issues with your family and with yourself. Remember to move your body in ways that feel good to you. Carve out some time out each day for just being quiet with yourself. Notice the beauty around you. Give cuddles, get cuddles. Take a shower and sing your heart out. Feel your feet on the floor, nestle your bum into your chair and listen to yourself breath like it’s a song on the radio. Yawn. Belch. Stretch. Roar. Put on some loud music and rock out. Whatever you know works for you to get you out of your head and back in to your body, remember to do it, and remember to do it regularly. Make it habitual.

Be proactive with this rather than reactive; if you wait until you have to react to things going ass-side up later on it’s going to feel like you’re fighting to get your head above water. If you do it now you’ll have the mental space needed to navigate tumultuous waters.

This is what will be necessary if you want to engage with the increasingly frenetic narrative matrix in the future. The only alternative will be to disengage completely and throw your attention into escapism, or at least away from politics and news. And if you don’t make the cultivation of mental well-being your first and foremost priority you will be forced, in a very unpleasant way, to disengage anyhow.

And honestly this is something all activist types should be doing anyway. Believing you can help the world without doing serious inner work is like believing you can clean the house while covered in raw sewage. You can always spot the political activists who engage without doing any inner work by the chaotic, unskillful and frequently counterproductive form their actions take. They can’t see clearly enough to operate efficaciously, because their vision is clouded with unresolved suffering and conflict. Get in the shower and wash the yuck off yourself before trying to clean the house.

Above all, be gentle with yourself. We got a ways ahead of us, and we need you fresh and feeling good. You won’t be able to help wake the world up if you let the chaos and confusion drag you down. Know when to take a break from the information stream and all the babbling narratives trying to twist your perception of it. Use your tools to distance yourself from the narratives so that you can perceive them objectively. Ground yourself, find your center, then, when you’re ready, wade back in.

No matter how chaotic things get, your ability to navigate that chaos skillfully needs to be your first and foremost priority. Put your mental well-being first, and everything else will fall into place.

Be the peace and harmony you want to see in the world.

LISA RENEE: “Narcissism”

“The NAA can be best understood as a Psychopathic or Sociopathic personality or identity profile with a Lack of Empathy that has no feelings of remorse. Narcissists do not recognize that they have boundaries and that others are separate and are not extensions of themselves. Others either exist to meet their needs or may as well not exist at all. 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. It is very common for people that base their leadership or authority on controlling behaviors and tyrannical principles, to aggressively manipulate others by creating a façade of charisma from mimicking what they have found people want to hear from their wounded ego parts. Many people do not want to hear or know the truth; they want to be lulled to sleep by fantasy delusions.”

~Lisa Renee

 

The conceit of egotism describes a person who acts to gain value for self serving motivation and taking in an excessive amount of resources than that which he or she gives back to others. Usually these are actions of taking in others energy, time and resources and is accompanied with very low ethical standards and displaying low moral character traits. This is also called consumptive modeling or energetic vampirism. Egotism may be fulfilled by exploiting the sympathy, trauma, emotion or ignorance of others, as well as utilizing coercive force, deception, manipulation, Mind Control and fraud. The egotist has an overwhelming sense of the centrality of the ‘Me’ operating in their personal qualities and personal identity. Without developing Self Awareness and ego discipline, the untamed Negative Ego is exploited by Mind Control and further develops itself into serious spiritual pathologies which lead to narcissism and Psychopathy.

Narcissism – The Secondary Stages of Negative Ego

Narcissism is used to describe the pursuit of gratification from vanity, or egotistic admiration of one’s own physical or mental attributes, that derive from arrogant pride.

The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism:

Shamelessness: Shame is the feeling that lurks beneath all unhealthy narcissism and the inability to process shame in healthy ways.

Magical thinking: Narcissists see themselves as perfect, using distortion and illusion known as magical thinking. They also use projection to dump shame onto others.

Arrogance: A narcissist who is feeling deflated may reinflate by diminishing, debasing, or degrading somebody else.

Envy: A narcissist may secure a sense of superiority in the face of another person’s ability by using contempt to minimize the other person.

Entitlement: Narcissists hold unreasonable expectations of particularly favorable treatment and automatic compliance because they consider themselves special. Failure to comply is considered an attack on their superiority, and the perpetrator is considered an “awkward” or “difficult” person. Defiance of their will is a narcissistic injury that can trigger narcissistic rage.

Exploitation: Can take many forms but always involves the exploitation of others without regard for their feelings or interests. Often the other is in a subservient position where resistance would be difficult or even impossible. Sometimes the subservience is not so much real as assumed.

Bad boundaries: Narcissists do not recognize that they have boundaries and that others are separate and are not extensions of themselves. Others either exist to meet their needs or may as well not exist at all. Those who provide narcissistic supply to the narcissist are treated as if they are part of the narcissist and are expected to live up to those expectations. In the mind of a narcissist there is no boundary between self and other. [1]

Untrustworthy Ego Profiles

We can apply this checklist to ourselves to inquire what may trigger our own Negative Ego to rear up from unhealed pain. Or we may apply the checklist for better discernment when making choices of where we place our trust and what we value as a model of strengthening our character. If we observe a person acting out an excessive amount of these behaviors near to us, we may choose to not support them in their delusions.

As is made clear here in these checklists, the more severe the negative ego dysfunction the more potentially disconnected the person is from their heart, intuition, self-awareness and spiritual source. This immediately gives one a gauge to measure what level a person can be trusted, no matter what words they may be speaking. In the severe stages of Narcissism and Psychopathy, the veneer of seduction, charisma and “mimicry” of empathic reactions that are geared for manipulation to serve one’s egocentric needs, and can be seen much more clearly over time. It is very common for people that base their leadership or authority on controlling behaviors and tyrannical principles, to aggressively manipulate others by creating a façade of charisma from mimicking what they have found people want to hear from their wounded ego parts. Many people do not want to hear or know the truth; they want to be lulled to sleep by fantasy delusions.

This is the tough part. We have to ask if we are able to seek the honest factual truth of behavioral interactions or have people feed us lies that are flattering or comfortable for our wounded ego parts. [2]

Lack of Empathy

The NAA can be best understood as a Psychopathic or Sociopathic personality or identity profile with a Lack of Empathy that has no feelings of remorse.

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 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.

Sociopath

Sociopaths are masters at influence 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.

Profile of Narcissism

Four dimensions of narcissism as a personality variable have been delineated: leadership/authority, superiority/arrogance, self-absorption/self-admiration, and exploitativeness/entitlement. [3]

LISA RENEE: “Child Psychopaths”

“One question to always ask is who is benefiting from this violent anti-human strategy, such as having sex with children? Why and How is society creating an unprecedented number of Psychopaths? If a technologically advanced extradimensional race has decided to implement a gradual takeover of a planet and its inhabitants, what kind of anti-human strategy would it use? First they would look to how they could maximize the efficiency of the invasion process through generating accepted ways that severe abuse and trauma could be implemented on children in order to grow them into psychopathic, narcissistic and/or severely traumatized and fractured adults. When people are traumatized and abused by authority figures as young as possible, they are not empowered to expand consciousness nor able to grow into productive and healthy adults. Many of these people do not have a sense of self, feelings or conscience, and tend to mimic the abuse they originally suffered as a child at the hands of an adult psychopath. Many raped children suffer all of their life in extreme pain, with soul bindings to demonic and satanic entities, both human and nonhuman. Sometimes, they reverse the pain inflicted as pleasurable and lie to themselves that the person deserves to be abused, or a variety of built in Predator Mind thinking processes to justify the harm or pain they are inflicting. The advanced level of AD Behaviors is that which is the realm of the Satanic Ritual Abusers (SRA), this level is in the caste system of Satanic priesthood. These people and entities actually value the killing of children and believe in the necessity of child sacrifice killings if they can get away with it without prosecution. We have to ask who is benefiting from having sex with our children? It’s not human.”

~Lisa Renee

 

To be able to understand the sociopathic sick mind of Archontic Deception Strategy and their anti-human Mind Control systems, one would need to better understand the general attitude of an AD infected human or nonhuman (NAA) as having little to no remorse or empathy for their harmful actions towards others. Many of these people do not have a sense of self, feelings or conscience, and tend to mimic the abuse they originally suffered as a child at the hands of an adult psychopath. Sometimes, they reverse the pain inflicted as pleasurable and lie to themselves that the person deserves to be abused, or a variety of built in Predator Mind thinking processes to justify the harm or pain they are inflicting.

The goal of the Archontic Deception Behaviors is to start the indoctrination of children into forms of abuse at the hand of their parent or authority figure, who also endured abuse as a child by an adult in authority. This is to perpetuate the cycle of accepting abuse from authority figures (False Parent) as standard human behavior, which is a divide and conquer strategy of Victim-Victimizer to be propagated between human beings on the earth.

This is designed to continually repeat the cycles of violence, such as child abuse, sexual abuse and human slavery over many generations. These spiritually abusive behaviors become inherited and mimicked by those who are abused. If a technologically advanced extradimensional race has decided to implement a gradual takeover of a planet and its inhabitants, what kind of anti-human strategy would it use? First they would look to how they could maximize the efficiency of the invasion process through generating accepted ways that severe abuse and trauma could be implemented on children in order to grow them into psychopathic, narcissistic and/or severely traumatized and fractured adults. When people are traumatized and abused by authority figures as young as possible, they are not empowered to expand consciousness nor able to grow into productive and healthy adults.

When we have generated core behavioral markers to define forms of inner violence and identify Archontic Deception (AD), we can study them. This is required in so that we can learn how these anti-human and violent behaviors are desired and cultivated as environmental influences that enforce these AD value systems, and to realize that starts with the children. These Mind Control programs are designed to remain hidden and to perpetuate the anti-human ideology of which all AD systems operate. It is important to be aware to identify these spiritually abusive behavioral markers when we are exposed to them in so that we can remain informed about how we choose to interact and protect ourselves. These AD behavioral markers are used to hijack and usurp people and organizations that may start out with good humanitarian intentions. However, they do not have clarity on the NAA motivation behind the Archontic Deception Strategy. Humans are generally desensitized towards violence and do not recognize these AD Behaviors even when they are operating right in front of us. They are hidden in plain sight because we do not understand what we are looking at and how what is being hidden as violent deception impacts everyone. It is time to “see” these AD spiritually abusive behaviors, violent patterns, and deceptions as the first step in the transformation (purging). Learn to recognize what you are exactly looking at and trust inner feelings, do not run away from it in fear and avoidance. In order to change and heal these behaviors we have to have the courage to look at them.

One question to always ask is who is benefiting from this violent anti-human strategy, such as having sex with children? Why and How is society creating an unprecedented number of Psychopaths? Look for the source infection at the root cause to make changes, not at its many symptoms. [1][2]

AD Strategy 3: Sexual Abuse and Misery

Sexual abuse and Sexual Misery are preferred by AD because it serves many purposes for torturing human beings into submission and enslavement. Many times this starts in early childhood to abuse the child and program them to expect abuse from authority figures. 1. The sexual energies can be stolen and used by the black magician or the sexual predator as a “reward” system to continually carry out AD Behaviors which generates psychopaths. 2. Vaginal or anal rape can yield soul energies that are siphoned and bound to the human or demonic entity that has committed the act of violent rape. Raping children is the most productive way to steal soul energy and create soul damage in the child, whom becomes an adult with dissociative, split or narcisstic personalities. Many raped children suffer all of their life in extreme pain, with soul bindings to demonic and satanic entities, both human and nonhuman. The most common soul binding used in child rape and Female Genital Mutilation in SRA is the demonic altar of Moloch. 3. The dissatisfaction with sexuality and dysfunctional fears that are generated within sexual relations create misery, pain and torment for many humans on the earth. This misery if not healed erupts into deviations, perversions and fetishes which are further satanically controlled into Addiction through whatever means. This disconnects the person from soul, and the great void of inner pain generates addiction, many times within the sexual energies of the person whom is desperate for relief from personal anxiety or pain. In many cases this deep pain creates a double life or duplicity, the person appears normal in their day job, and yet behind the scenes is addicted to deviant behavior as an outlet for anxiety. Sexual abuse of children is the most harmful act that can be committed to any person, this violence splinters the mind, heart and soul of that person. The person endures incredible levels of inner pain and suffering throughout their life.

AD Strategy 4: Child Abuse and Child Sacrifice

The advanced level of AD Behaviors is that which is the realm of the Satanic Ritual Abusers (SRA), this level is in the caste system of Satanic priesthood. These people and entities actually value the killing of children and believe in the necessity of child sacrifice killings if they can get away with it without prosecution. Their most sick mind believes that the blood of a child is the most pure, and can extract vital essence and power from the blood sacrifice. When they want “more power” for material success or something to gain, or there is something to “cleanse”, they believe to cleanse it with a child’s blood. Most commonly they will abduct a child or a Satanic family will give up their child to satanic ritual holidays. Orphanages are frequently pillaged for this reason. This is the most unbelievable to the sane mind and loving heart, yet, we must know this exists in huge numbers to begin to protect the children of the earth from this sickness. Most commonly children of extremely poor people are either used this way in ritual, or will be a sexual slave or prostitute to a satanic group of individuals. Child genital mutilation, child sex slavery, child porn, live sex with children on the internet is a billion dollar booming business. This is highly disturbing as we can see no one in government gives a care about this global issue. We have to ask who is benefiting from having sex with our children? It’s not human.

When these levels of abuse pattern are proliferated in the collective consciousness of earth, the abusive behavior becomes shaped into belief systems through the energy pattern that is absorbed by the Unconscious Mind. People that are traumatized and in severe pain, tend to inflict great pain to others and themselves. Many traumatized and fractured humans pick up in their Unconscious Mind environmental forces, thus acting out these violent forces that they do not understand the implication or consequence of. This is especially true of children.

Child Psychopaths

The Wrath of an Angel (Documentary): As an example of the result of severe abuse, here is the story of an severely sexually abused child Beth that exhibited violent, aggressive criminal psychopathic behavior since an extremely early age in which she would kill animals, attempt to hurt and kill her brother, other people and even expressed desire to kill her parents. Through incredible love and reprogramming her violent behavior to become more trustworthy and build self esteem she was able to improve and regain empathy and conscience for her actions. [3]

Parental Sexual Abuser

WARNING: this is disturbing. However, this is an example of a Sadistic Sex Offender or “Sexual Sadist” from a video series entitled: Truth, Lies and Sex Offenders & Sadistic vs. non-Sadistic Sex Offenders, created by Dr. Anna Salter. This segment shows a chilling example of what a Sexual Sadist is, living a double life, and that was raping his own son while he stalked other children looking for victims. This is an example of the repeating cycles of sexual violence in families through generations, that is hidden within archontic deception mind control programming. [4]

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.
