Donald Trump is a fraud

You heard it here first. Confidence level in this revelation is about the same as usual, so as always be warned that the confident language is a result of the cognitive style.

Trump is a medium-functioning, dark triad psychopath whose only real talent is telling people what they want to hear. This interpretation fits all the data points. Consider:

-Zero anxiety, period. Psychopathy is characterized by a complete absence of anxiety about the future, including even the near-future. It’s an amygdala thing, see Bob Hare.

-He has increased his inheritance less than inflation. Real estate has been very friendly to extremely wealthy men in recent years, yet he is a chronic loser. He is not good at his job, has no insight into money or economics, and is not very smart. Contrast his lack of success with his extraordinary people skills. If it’s not “what you know”, then why can’t Trump make any money despite all the effort he puts into it?

-His long-term relationships, such as with the Clintons, are opportunistic in nature. The Clintons are gangsters, Bill is a serial-raping narcissist, and Hillary is his political handler: a high-functioning psychopath who saved his presidency by destroying and murdering witnesses for the prosecution.

-He is a chronic exaggerator and liar who writes books about social influence which merely repeat trite advice from other books. “Follow your passion.” Thanks Walt, I’ll tell the debt collectors that and maybe they’ll approve my forbearance. His public persona is due to decades of attention-seeking for narcissistic supply.

-There are many reports of his shallow charisma when the cameras are off. A characteristic trademark of psychopathy is an instant change in temperament when the cameras turn off, because they have already adapted to the new social environment.

-His decision to push immigration restriction was an accident. He floated the issue and was surprised at how strongly people felt about it. This reminds me of when Bill Whittle, usually a very smart narcissist, suggested that poor people would be better off if they didn’t have to pay 15 grand in taxes. He’s completely out of touch. A true populist must either have a strong abstract reading streak (like Whittle) or at least have the familiarity to be able to tell, at a glance, the difference between poor and upper middle class.

-He originally ran for president as a gimmick. After throwing spaghetti noodles at the wall the immigration noodle stuck. He realized he could win and decided to try.

It is fitting to the dignity of the alternative right that they have been co-opted by accident. We can’t even claim there was a conspiracy like the Tea Partiers, just some random psychopath said something we agreed with and he saw the way our faces lit up. “Thank you!” we cried out in exasperation, so he said the same thing again, and we’ve lifted him on our shoulders and are carrying him to the White House.

Now even if you accept this interpretation, I know your first thought is “well, at least people are talking about this now, right?” It’s time to come back down to earth. Things are going to get much worse under this guy, not better. You think DC doesn’t have the infrastructure to handle a medium-functioning presidential psychopath?

Imagine George W. Bush 2016 with twice the testosterone and confidence. It’s time for this dream to end because there are dark days ahead.

    Yes, there are. But even darker days if he doesn’t win. The alternatives are worse.

  2. Mycroft Jones says:

    America is facing a choice between Muslim domination, or Communist domination.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      We’ve been Socialites for at least a century, and Communists ever since the Russkies subverted our intelligence agencies and academia. You can’t find an American anymore who isn’t a tacit utilitarian.

      • Heaviside says:

        The United States was always communist. The founding fathers were all criminals and mountebanks who should have been drawn and quartered for inciting a Bolshevik revolution against the Defender of the Faith. Abraham Lincoln personally exchanged letters with Karl Marx. Woodrow Wilson dispatched Trotsky to Russia. FDR saved the Soviet Union from destruction.

        The only way to end communism in America is to end the United States once and for all.

        “The workingmen of Europe feel sure that, as the American War of Independence initiated a new era of ascendancy for the middle class, so the American Antislavery War will do for the working classes. They consider it an earnest of the epoch to come that it fell to the lot of Abraham Lincoln, the single-minded son of the working class, to lead his country through the matchless struggle for the rescue of an enchained race and the reconstruction of a social world.” — Karl Marx

        When you support “America” you are supporting communism. Leftists are the “real Americans”, not bovine conservatives who are incapable of seeing their country’s history for what it truly is. Our Bible Belt “conservatives” are essentially the equivalent of those folks who lived in the Red Belt in Russia.

        “Democracy” is communism.

        FDR’s intention in starting WWII was to destroy the two other great naval powers of the time, the British and Japanese Empires, so that the United States would rule the world as the world’s only sea power and the Soviet Union as the world’s dominant land power. They would be united under the United Nations i.e. one world government i.e. WORLD COMMUNISM. Thankfully the United States lost WWII to Japan and this terrifying possibility was averted.

        CIA was not “infiltrated” by communists, the CIA was a communist organization from day one. William Donovan and Eisenhower collaborated with the NKVD to rub out Patton, because Patton wanted to destroy the Soviet union. Your tax dollars at work!

        Why is Marshall posing with Mao in that photo? Because Marshall handed China over to the communists. He established training camps for Mao’s forces, just like the United States did with the Taliban. That is your U.S. Army being so “right wing” and “conservative”, training fucking communists.

        Well, let’s see if the Navy is better. Oh wait, the Navy includes men like Smedley Butler, who gave speeches for the CPUSA, and Evans Fordyce Carlson, who was buried with state honors from the Soviet Union.

        The problem is not that the United States might be taken over by communists or radical muslims. The United States is the source of communism and radical Islam. The problem is the United States itself. The only way to un-fuck your country is to destroy the political entity known as the United States and to destroy the United States government.

  3. Marshall Mead says:

    In any case he’s a good option. 1. He will at least do something about immigration. That alone is worth getting behind him rather than any of the other fucks running. 2. Hes changing the political mood of the country and destroying the power of the media. I don’t see any real problems with him unless he is designed to screw up for the media to blame that failure on alt right principles(but even then people could blame obama and his legacy blah blah blah).

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      He’ll do what he’s told, just like W before him. It just might take a little extra convincing.

      “Mr. President, there’s a mob of terrorists attacking the Capitol! Only the Army can stop them.”

      “Okay, send in the Army.”

      ARMY MASSACRES PROTESTORS, PREZ SAYS ‘NO APOLOGIES’

    • Heaviside says:

      >1. He will at least do something about immigration.

      Will he?

      >2. He’s changing the political mood of the country

      Yeah! The silent majority is going to get mad! And then they’re going to sit in front of their televisions, but now they’ll feel *empowered*.

      > and destroying the power of the media.

      How?

      • Marshall Mead says:

        Because the elites rely on lies to keep their power.
        1. Equality is a lie
        2. Political correctness is cultural marxism (or ‘social communism’ for waking up laymen)
        3. Immigration is invasion
        These are the three core truths the elite fear more than anything – even nationalism as they can channel it to their ends effectively.
        Trump furthers the spread of these truths and thus he is worth supporting.

  4. jack arcalon says:

    Elect me as president and I will take all the necessary radical actions in a humane and reasoned manner!
    Problem is the populace will only elect an extremist they can empathize with.

  5. I don’t think so. Perhaps you had too much faith in him before and are over-correcting. Be wary of black and white thinking, cuz few are total psychos or total ingenos. I think the Donald is probably not much better or worse than your average joe.

    My evaluation: he’s selfish and self promoting, and very good at it. He likes excitement, being the center of attention, proving himself to people, novelty, and risk taking. He does have a sincere patriotism, though it’s not his primary concern.

    This presidential run thing tapped into his love of applause, self promotion, self aggrandizement, novelty, risk taking, but also his sincere patriotism. It’s not like his patriotism runs deep enough that he would ever volunteer for a self sacrificial role like soldier on the front lines– but if he can help himself while helping his country he’s excited for it. His love of risk (not so much physical risk), action, novelty, applause, and self promotion makes it so that he’s willing to take a financial/social risk and as an added bonus gets to exercise his patriotism.

    He has little interest in deeply held principles or internal consistency and integrity, and excess of empathy or compassion– but by no means a total lack of it either: probably near average human empathy level.

    In a nutshell, he does want to save America, he does believe his un-PC ideas, he does have a sincere (though somewhat shallow) patriotism… and he’s basically a selfish guy, but not much a psychopath or sadistic.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      Why was he so comfortable hanging out with a violent serial rapist until the time came to throw him under the bus?

      Why is he conning suckers out of tens of thousands of dollars with fake educational products? If he’s merely cynical, then why is he so far behind the University of Phoenix people?

      And last, most importantly, if he’s more or less an average Joe (with money), then why does he completely lack anxiety?

      “Be wary of black and white thinking, cuz few are total psychos or total ingenos.”

      They are out there, they are found at the extremes, and the interpretation fits the data. I can be convinced otherwise, but it will require a strong contradiction.

  6. “Why was he so comfortable hanging out with a violent serial rapist until the time came to throw him under the bus?”

    Well, the sad truth is that that’s basically something many/most people are willing to do– provided there is a strong incentive. Trump is one among many who was comfortable with him; and I don’t think everyone who associated with the Clintons is a psychopath. I think he’s been pretty honest about why– pecuniary benefits.

    “Why is he conning suckers out of tens of thousands of dollars with fake educational products? If he’s merely cynical, then why is he so far behind the University of Phoenix people?”

    I haven’t read his books so I can’t say how bad they are, but I highly doubt Trump himself thinks they’re that bad. Even if they are absolutely worthless, there are plenty of people who aren’t psychopaths who write trite and unoriginal books, thinking that they’re really good.

    “And last, most importantly, if he’s more or less an average Joe (with money), then why does he completely lack anxiety?”

    This is the best point, and really the one on which the case hinges. I would say he’s got little reason for anxiety for one. And for two, maybe he has some anxiety that I just haven’t seen in the media.

    I’m also open to the possibility he’s a psychopath, I just don’t see the evidence in favor as being strong enough. Maybe partially psychopathic, and I think highly narcissistic as well– I’m just not convinced of full blown psychopathy. I’d need more evidence in favor.

    • Aeoli Pera says:

      “Well, the sad truth is that that’s basically something many/most people are willing to do– provided there is a strong incentive.”

      Hmm, that hadn’t occurred to me, but you’re probably right. The sciffy crowd is still defending its pedophiles.

      ” Even if they are absolutely worthless, there are plenty of people who aren’t psychopaths who write trite and unoriginal books, thinking that they’re really good.”

      Also a good point, although $17,000 seems pretty steep.

      Okay, you’ve brought me nearer to the middle position. I’m leaning 75/25 toward the psychopathy interpretation.

      • BGS says:

        Given the alternatives Jeb, Hillary and Bernie I will support the guy leading the Ausländer Aus Parades. If you are right we are stuck with a elite stooge either way.

  7. Koanic says:

    I fail to see how Aeoli’s worst case is a bad thing. Trump is a loose-cannon outsider psycho who draws his ego from his poll #s and winning. That means he’ll do a much better job than establishment-owned psychos.

    If you’re saying the establishment owns Trump, well no, it clearly doesn’t. Otherwise he wouldn’t say what he’s said on immigration. If you’re saying they can break him… no, I don’t think so. He’s not weak.

    • Heaviside says:

      Maybe he is not weak to the hysterics of media talking heads, but do you think the CIA can’t handle him the same way they did Ross Perot?

      Nixon was a far better man than anyone we have today and they got rid of him.

    • Marshall Mead says:

      Very true, Koanic. If Trump was an insider then they wouldn’t be gearing up for a brokered convention right now and Trump wouldn’t be guarded by a small army. My entire point in my post above is that Trump has shifted the Overton window and that is the LAST THING the elites want. It’s very frustrating to see that so many people in this sphere think the elites are all powerful.

  8. Koanic says:

    The thing that you have to remember about Trump is that he’s got some socket depth. He’s an elite MT. He knows how to play by elite rules. He plays nice until attacked. A lot of his buffoonery and egotism is MT. He’s had to learn how to adjust.

  9. Edenist whackjob says:

    http://krauserpua.com/2016/01/11/scott-adams-and-his-master-seducer-persuader-series/

    Realization: Trump has been making us all very emotional. It feels kind of… dirty. Time to snap out of it.

  10. Glenn MT says:

    Check out some of his older interviews. He speaks in a more articulate manner, with a more varied vocabulary and complex sentence structures. Somewhere along the way, he must have decided that that didn’t work for him so he stopped. I definitely don’t see this as a sign of mediocrity.

    “He has increased his inheritance less than inflation.” We don’t know exactly how much of an inheritance he got. Depending on the number, he could have done either better or worse than the market. But that’s only taking two points, the beginning and end point, into account. He’s also gone into massive debt and recovered. That shows more financial prowess than handing all your money to competent mutual fund managers.

    “His long-term relationships, such as with the Clintons, are opportunistic in nature.” Which is generally bad but can be necessary, especially in treacherous times. Compare the success of two fascist would-be dictators: Codreanu, an unflinchingly principled man, with Hitler, who was morally flexible at best. Who even remembers Codreanu now? Sometimes it is necessary to observe the spirit of the law rather than just the words, something that is often lost on xT’s like us.

    “He is a chronic exaggerator and liar who writes books about social influence which merely repeat trite advice from other books.” Remember, this stuff means more to xC’s and xM’s than it does to us.

    “It is fitting to the dignity of the alternative right that they have been co-opted by accident.” I think a lot of it is just in jest, but I am surprised about the [seemingly sizeable] minority of voices who actually think Trump is on their side and going to fix a lot of problems.

    I think Trump is no worse in terms of conscience than the average of our politicians, probably better. T
