Our Finest Hour

“What pundits have called the Battle of Facts is nearly over. I expect that the Battle of Governing is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of our civilization. Upon it depends our own American life, and the long continuity of our institutions. The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Trumpish forces know that they will have to break us or lose the war. If we can stand up to them, all may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if America and its constitution last for a thousand years, men will still say, “This was their finest hour.”

The Trump Sociopath Test

The Hare Psychopathy Checklist – The 20 items …which are rated 0 to 2, zero meaning ‘does not apply’, one ‘applies somewhat’ and two ‘applies fully’.


GLIB and SUPERFICIAL CHARM – smooth talking, verbally agile, a psychopath is rarely stuck for something to say. They are not in the least bit shy. In fact, they are not afraid to say anything!

Trump: 2 points

“Mexicans are criminals and rapists…

“The beauty of me is that I’m very rich.”

“The Russians are not in the Crimea.” (They are?)

  1. GRANDIOSE SELF-WORTH – they have an opinion on everything, they boast and brag about the things they have done, their skills and abilities. They have enormous egos, plenty of confidence and arrogance and consider themselves superior. One psychopath said that he preferred to hear himself talk, because what he said was more interesting than what other people had to say.

“If you have the money, having children is great.”

  1. SEEK STIMULATION or PRONE TO BOREDOM – they like to be doing new and different things, always looking for excitement and entertainment. They take risks in what they do as well as what they say. For example, cult leaders, in a subtle way, may explain to their victims how exactly they are manipulating them. They rarely engage in activities that they find boring, or they don’t finish the job.

Trump: 2 points

Easily bored, no attention span.

No personal involvement in Trump projects, just sale of name and brand.

Trump: 2 points

Trump University, Trump Resort, Mexico, Atlantic City bankruptcies.
Jobs destroyed, students’ life savings looted.

“I don’t want to use the word ‘screwed’, but I screwed him.”

  1. LACK OF REMORSE OR GUILT – despite their words they experience little emotion or concern for the pain and suffering of their victims. They are unfazed, dispassionate, coldhearted, and un-empathic. There is often a disdain for the victims, and they may even say the victims deserved it.

“I’m in total support of waterboarding. It has to be within the law, but I have to expand the law.”

  1. SHALLOW AFFECT – emotional poverty or very shallow feelings, coldness towards others despite seeming very friendly.

“When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength.”

“I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets?”

  1. CALLOUSNESS and LACK OF EMPATHY – a general lack of feelings towards other people. They tend to be heartless, contemptuous, indifferent and tactless

Trump suggested that Mrs. Khan was not allowed to speak at the Democratic Convention, probably because she’s a Muslim doormat.

Trump compared the loss of their son, Capt. Humayun Khan, to the “sacrifices” he has made as a businessman.

Trump finally gets around to saying he’s sorry about their loss a day later, but notes that Humayun died 12 years ago, apparently code for “get over it.”

Trump says that he was “viciously attacked” by Mr. Khan and that he’s allowed “to respond” (by insulting his wife and demeaning their son’s life).“

I’ve always said, “If you need Viagra, you’re probably with the wrong girl.”

Judge is prejudiced because he’s hispanic.

To my cousin, Annie, and other wastrels:

trump-hitler trump-hitler-1

In the sixties when we were young and dumb, a lot of us voted for McCarthy. It elected Nixon who started two more secret wars in Cambodia and Laos, and the War on Drugs which has destabilized Mexico and Central America and cost millions of lives and trillions of dollars.

At the turn of this century the dumb voted for Ralph Nader, which got us George Bush, a moron oil scion who enabled the present World Oil War, more tax breaks for the superrich and the Great Republican Depression. All of which cost trillions of dollars and millions of jobs.

In the next election some idiots voted for the Tea Party who promised to stop government from doing anything. This, they did, leading to the current malaise among the populace and a brake on the economy that they now decry.

Now we have a sociopath proto-Hitler and if you waste your vote, as did others in the past, he will help destroy everything you believe in. What kind of self-righteous narcissists would help elect him, and his evil minions?

Gary Johnson is either completely bonkers or has much better weed than I’m smoking. I have learned to smoke it after the interview, not before. This tactic is lost on him. Will he just stick out his tongue to Putin. Thank and imaginary God he has no chance of being elected.

Libertarianism is a right wing cult derived from the John Birch Society by a two-bit conman named LeFebre. They don’t believe the government should stop the banks, Wall Street, the plutocrats or the spoiled children like Romney, Bush and Trump from stealing everything they can get their tiny, greedy hands on. Thieves don’t like regulation or laws except those laws they can use to help hold their ill-gotten gains.

I like Bernie, but he’s not running. The Democrats, being realists, backed Hilary since she is by far the most qualified candidate and an actual Democrat. Bernie was a socialist, with no great legislative achievements. He has some great ideas, which are now adopted into the Democratic platform. You won. Take a bow. Vote for a qualified technician to run the country. Work to elect Bernie next.

Hilary is fine. How would you behave if you’d been viciously targeted with lies for your entire adult life? You don’t like Hilary because you have been brainwashed by decades of Fox/Drudge/TalkRadio propaganda and the Right Wing Washington Industrial Lying Complex.

This other guy is just an Orange Hitler. Only Hitler had a brain. And look up “Sociopath” on wikipedia. You have the same choice those good Germans had. Be a responsible citizen. And stop fucking around.

What to do with the Mexicans.

Mexicans are somewhat like Jews, being “rapists and murderers, and some of them are good people”. So we only need to look to history for a plan.

The Madagascar Plan was a proposal by the Nazi German government to relocate the Jewish population of Europe to the island of Madagascar. The proposal called for the handing over of control of Madagascar, then a French colony, to Germany as part of the French surrender terms.

The idea of deporting Polish Jews to Madagascar was investigated by the Polish government in 1937,but the task force sent to evaluate the island’s potential determined that only 5,000 to 7,000 families could be accommodated, or even as few as 500 families by some estimates. As efforts by the Nazis to encourage emigration of the Jewish population of Germany before World War II were only partially successful, the idea of deporting Jews to Madagascar was revived by the Nazi government in 1940.

With Adolf Hitler’s approval, Adolf Eichmann released a memorandum calling for the resettlement of a million Jews per year for four years, with the island governed as a police state under the SS. They assumed that many Jews would succumb to its harsh conditions should the plan be implemented.The plan was not viable due to the British naval blockade. It was postponed after the Axis lost the Battle of Britain in September 1940, and was permanently shelved in 1942 with the commencement of the Final Solution, towards which it had functioned as an important psychological step. (wikipedia)

Well, that’s no good. Only a million a year, assuming they don’t die fast enough, it would take over ten years to get rid of them and what do you do in the mean time. I mean how much lettuce is there to pick!

“Fly them far away, so they can’ t come back”. This doesn’t work for dogs, by the way. Assuming most are Mexican, the farthest Mexican international airport is Tapachula in Chiapas, Mexico on the border of Guatemala. A one way economy flight is 282 dollars. For 11 million people that would amount to only 3 billion one hundred million dollars. And they’d be Mexico’s problem.

Another idea would be to ship them by sea. The biggest cruise ship in the world is Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Sea. It can carry 5,479 passengers. so it would only take two thousand and seven voyages, and you could bring back bananas. Of course, you’d have to feed them and give them access to the pool so it would cost $3000 a person; only 33 billion dollars.

Or you could just buy a closer island, say, Haiti/ Dominican Republic, rename it Trump Island and send them there. Haiti only has 10 million people on 10, 750 square kilometers and all the trees have been cut down for firewood so there should be plenty of room.. It shares an island with the Dominican Republic, who’s main export is short stops. DR’s year-round golf courses are among the top attractions on the island, so The Donald would be very very comfortable visiting…Both countries have a mixed race population so Mexicans would fit right in, believe me…

But where do we put all these people while we’re sorting all this out. Our private for-profit jails are full of our own rapists and murderers, and some good people for chrissakes.

Not to worry, we have a history. Manzanar is available, and there is skiing nearby. It’s a harsh desert and you would expect a certain diminishment in the population over time.

A better idea would be forced labor camps in California’s Central valley. (Yeah, good luck in getting those Californians to cooperate.) but a Presidential “Der Donald” Order, enforced by, you know, Alt-Right Homeland Security (HS) Waffen Shock Troops, could make it happen.

Just pen them up near the tomato fields. There is already a plan for high speed trains so its just an issue of attaching cattle cars. The air is already polluted so, in case of some kind of final solution, we know from experience the neighbors would claim to hardly notice.

But really folks, it’s not like we have a problem with genocide and it is telling how quickly we can turn on our fellow humans. We’ve done this before and quite successfully. We just make a treaty, break it and ship them to a reservation. There’s an empty quarter in Arizona /New Mexico, and being basically a swarthy people you can hardly tell them from the Navahos.

See, problem solved ! All you need is a strong man. See, they love me. I’m very very big with them. And they’re really very very fine people. Fine people.

Okay, Next. The women. And they all don’t have to be tens…You know, really young beautiful pieces of ass. We could keep a lot of them around. You know, maybe the cut-off would be six and above…

Scientists Seek Rumored Path Between Trump’s Mouth and Brain.

Like the legendary Northwest Passage and the lost city of Eldorado, explorers have long searched for a connection, or a contiguous thought of some kind, connecting what he says to any kind of empirical reality. Dr. Levy Pangloss of John’s Hopkins once determined a partial neural network from Trump’s speech center, through his limbic snake brain but lost it in a constellation of half-thoughts, notions, prejudices, brain farts and outright lies. In further investigation it was found that the facile lying of a sociopath, may interfere with the necessary feeling channels which, in humans, connects the ego to any kind of empathy toward other creatures, and a more complete world picture not, in fact, centered around the words, “me”, “I”, “mine”, and “Unbelievable!” Dr. Levy added, “ Of course, that assumes he has a working brain. It is rumored that he can dress himself, but we will need to do more study on that.”
