Election Season

The WaPo has really led the media charge against Trump in this election, and here is their "closing argument" against Trump

The hideous diabolical truth about Hillary (an amusing round up of various extreme claims about Hillary Clinton)

The Fury and Failure of Donald Trump: Win, lose or drop out, the Republican nominee has laid waste to the American political system. On the trail for the last gasp of the ugliest campaign in our nation's history By Matt Taibbi

Trump lies more often than Clinton. But Americans think she’s more dishonest. Here’s why.

Not so amusing:

HOW TRUMP TOOK HATE GROUPS MAINSTREAM: The full story of his connection with far-right extremists.

Meet the Horde of Neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and Other Extremist Leaders Endorsing Donald Trump: The Republican nominee for president has not disavowed any of them.

The 2016 Election Will Never End


Is Trump a cult leader?

Ten warning signs of a potentially unsafe group/leader.
- Absolute authoritarianism without meaningful accountability.
- No tolerance for questions or critical inquiry.
- No meaningful financial disclosure regarding budget, expenses such as an independently audited financial statement.
- Unreasonable fear about the outside world, such as impending catastrophe, evil conspiracies and persecutions.
- There is no legitimate reason to leave, former followers are always wrong in leaving, negative or even evil.
- Former members often relate the same stories of abuse and reflect a similar pattern of grievances.
- There are records, books, news articles, or television programs that document the abuses of the group/leader.
- Followers feel they can never be "good enough".
- The group/leader is always right.
- The group/leader is the exclusive means of knowing "truth" or receiving validation, no other process of discovery is really acceptable or credible.

Ten warning signs regarding people involved in/with a potentially unsafe group/leader.
- Extreme obsessiveness regarding the group/leader resulting in the exclusion of almost every practical consideration.
- Individual identity, the group, the leader and/or God as distinct and separate categories of existence become increasingly blurred. Instead, in the follower's mind these identities become substantially and increasingly fused--as that person's involvement with the group/leader continues and deepens.
- Whenever the group/leader is criticized or questioned it is characterized as "persecution".
- Uncharacteristically stilted and seemingly programmed conversation and mannerisms, cloning of the group/leader in personal behavior.
- Dependency upon the group/leader for problem solving, solutions, and definitions without meaningful reflective thought. A seeming inability to think independently or analyze situations without group/leader involvement. - Hyperactivity centered on the group/leader agenda, which seems to supercede any personal goals or individual interests.
- A dramatic loss of spontaneity and sense of humor.
- Increasing isolation from family and old friends unless they demonstrate an interest in the group/leader.
- Anything the group/leader does can be justified no matter how harsh or harmful.
- Former followers are at best-considered negative or worse evil and under bad influences. They can not be trusted and personal contact is avoided.

""and here is their "closing argument" against Trump""

"closing argument" right. except they (W.P.) will keep going on
and on even after the election is over. if trump wins they will say,
"oh the travesty how could this happen it's the end of america!"
and if hillary wins they will say, "good thing trump didn't win,
that would be the end of america! and by the way never mind that
hillary is attacking iran, they are evil and uncle sam is the
absolute good guy!"


""Donald Trump; Win, lose or drop out, the Republican nominee has laid waste to the American political system.""

and that would be a bad thing how?
