Political left has expanded, is still expanding, all their thinking, their bile and poison, all their money, their energies, all of their political capital against their self interest in their mindless, unselfconscious hatred of Donald Trump

Four in the morning
Crapped out


Longing my life away

I’ll never worry

Why should I?

It’s all gonna fade
Now I sit by my window

And I watch the cars

I fear I’ll do some damage

One fine day

But I would not be convicted

By a jury of my peers

Still crazy after all these years

Oh still crazy

Still crazy

Still crazy after all these years

Paul Simon - Still Crazy After All These Years Lyrics

Dan Rather: ‘We Haven’t Had a President This Psychologically Troubled…Since At Least Richard Nixon’

…Once-famed CBS anchor Dan Rather appeared on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, and described President Donald Trump as the most “psychologically troubled” president since Richard Nixon.

In the wake of Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Debacle—I mean, Agreement—the mainstream media lost its collective mind, accusing Trump of everything from treason to condemning the entire planet to death.

Pontificating on this, and on (featherweight) French President Macron pretending to fill a leadership void regarding the battle against weather—I mean, climate change—Rather described Trump’s bold decision as “a momentous moment, and a very ominous moment.”

The former newsman then expounded on something he knows nothing about: a psychological assessment of the President.


It seems clear that he’s mad,” Rather began… – Mark Tapson in Truth Revolt

Indeed it is.

Clear, that Dan Rather is mad.

What we have here is a menagerie of loose screws tied up in one body being interviewed by a network where incoherence, magical thinking, hatefulness and madness is the norm. Exceptions that may seem normal on this network are about as rare as a Chris Matthews’ lucid moment.

Long after Rather began his illustrious career before Brian Williams swatted missiles aside at 4000 ft. while dangling with one arm under his helicopter; after Hillary Clinton single-handedly wiped out an entire battalion of snipers in Bosnia, Rather never gave up on the fictions CBS’ 60 Minutes under his command pawned in the run-up to the elections of 2004. These were CBS’ weekly attempts to take down George W. Bush. They did so to install that famed Frenchman into the presidency. He’s the pompous gigolo who married the Heinz fortune.

That’s the election, incidentally, George W. Bush “stole” in a landslide. The second time Bush didn’t steal the nation from Al Gore, too bad, but from the aforementioned paragon of diplomatic virtuosity, John Kerry, whose seat at State was purchased for hard cash by the self-same heir to the Heinz fortune. Kerry’s wife, Tess. Her money talked BIGLY after the Obama campaign debt had to be paid off.

Back to Rather…Dan…


Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying heir existence in themselves while attributing them to others.

Theoretical examples

Projection tends to come to the fore in normal people at times of personal or political crisis but is more commonly found in the neurotic or psychotic in personalities functioning at a primitive level as in narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder

Carl Jung considered that the unacceptable parts of the personality represented by the Shadow archetype were particularly likely to give rise to projection, both small-scale and on a national/international basis. Marie-Louise Von Franz extended her view of projection, stating that “wherever known reality stops, where we touch the unknown, there we project an archetypal image”.

We do not pretend to be experts on psychology at this news outlet nor the chronic emotional disorders—aka, Trump Derangement Syndrome - afflicting the mainstream’s talking heads and pundits in full campaign mode for their party up to the election. They never bothered to look back now that it’s been over for eight months. Clearly, the meds never kicked in.

But for certain, one cannot reasonably come to any other conclusion considering the obsessive-repulsive behavior of a US media that can spend a day’s entirety 24/7 and its pages in persistent, cynical, disingenuous and mind-numbing attacks on Donald Trump and the nation of deplorables who voted for him. It is clear they’ve come undone BIGLY, not ever having coped with the fact that the election is over and they lost!

Their collective pregnancy to give birth to the biggest “STUPID NARRATIVE” in history—the Trump-Russia Collusion - is going into full term. There’s no light at the end of the birth canal in sight. This self-same crew of the personality-disordered can’t get over their labor pains.

The Wall Street Journal called it, rightly, “A Smoking Water Pistol.”


“It confirms what most people understand,” said Tom Bevan, publisher and co-founder of RealClearPolitics, one of the go-to websites for media and political junkies…
...Many beltway journalists are essentially establishment creatures, gatekeepers for the political ruling class, members of that class and fierce guardians of their place in the empire. The political class sees Trump and the 62 million Americans who voted for him as the stuff they scrape off their shoes.

In other words, the mainstream media and the establishment—the elites they actually work for -is the very swamp the political left wanted to drain for a century. Until that is, We, the People, normal people, decided to drain it ourselves - because they never have. The left had no issues with draining swamps until Hillary Clinton, the political class’ ultimate Swamp Creature, beneficiary of the elite’s largess, and the biggest pimple on the body politic who was on the take from every comer and loser, lost…and the media and the elites lost their influence along with the Clintons.

Clinton backed the Big Banks. She backed the bailouts. She backed Big Business. Big Oil. Big Media. Big Pharma. She backed exporting the jobs of Americans and importing the hate and violence of Jihadis and MS13. She allegedly took home tens of millions in her valiant self-dealing efforts from the SecState’s seat, leaving promissory notes in her wake and a HUUUUUGE bag to hold for the “charitable” fools who funded her.

Meanwhile the Old Left, the New Left, and the Leftover Left backed all of Hillary’s promissory notes

Meanwhile the Old Left, the New Left, and the Leftover Left backed all of Hillary’s promissory notes, for and because of her, and because the Propaganda Ministry, the arm of the Democrat party - the Mainstream Media that is - backed her. Trump had no Path to the Presidency after all, did he? Not a chance with the Clinton purse holding five times Trump’s level of cash, and the media and unions representing far more “soft” campaign money. Add in Hollywood, the banks, and the culture. All were in her pockets.

And she still lost.

The political left has expanded, and is still expanding, all their thinking, their bile and poison, all their money, their energies, and all of their political capital against their self interest in their mindless, unselfconscious hatred of Donald Trump, and against the American people who wanted the Swamp Drained. Dan, a swamp creature of long standing, speaks for them…

They deserve Dan Rather and his fictions…

They deserve each other…

Crazy you see, is to hold non-stop hearings over wishing and hoping, “A Smoking Water Pistol,” to cynically tie up government from functioning for the people, to hold up fixing the nation’s infrastructure, its roads, bridges, electrical and water systems, the nation’s collapsing health care system, veterans’ hospitals, the budget and the debt ceiling, and mostly, the nation’s sick and crazy culture holding on to malfunctioning Obamaphones.


Still Crazy After All These Years.
