I mean literally brainwashing. Please see psychological and sociological theories. I mean literally building a cult - that CANNOT FIND THE TRUTH
It is like the Branch Davidians (mass suicide)
Steve Bannon built this cult for Trump
I mean literally brainwashing. MOST OF YOU have relatives or friends who are inside the cult. They cannot be reasoned with. They cannot find the truth. They believe in their brainwashing.
PERFECTLY SANE even intelligent people can be brainwashed. It is not 'stupidity'
Yes MANY of the Trump #cult45 are gullible and some are mentally simple, many are lowly educated. BUT plenty of smart, educated, successful people have fallen into the cult - and like any cult - they cannot get out.
They cannot find the truth.
Steve Bannon, with Mercer money, and Putin's KGB brainwashing experts in Europe, built the best brainwashing machine ever designed, called Cambridge Analytica in 2016. They stole user info, and then used Facebook as the broadcast platform to poison nearly half of Americans
Most of the GOP voters were fed brainwashing lies with Steve Bannon / Cambridge Analytica developed activating phrases like Drain The Swap and Deep State. Yes. These were DESIGNED (with the help of KGB brainwashing experts) to poison Republican voters. Anyone who uses those..
The Three Trump Attorneys
Let's talk about Michael Cohen, Rudy Giuliani & Chris Christie
Michael Cohen served as Trump's personal attorney for about a decade PRIOR to Trump coming to the White House
And whatever bad image you have of attorneys, to call Michael Cohen a lawyer, is unfair to attorneys. He acted like the worst thug, a despicable monster of a human being
Michael Cohen's 'method' was to bully and to threaten to sue and then to sue. And then to behave in all sorts of unethical ways. He acted ALWAYS like a monster.
It tells us enough, that Michael Cohen was BLOCKED from joining Trump in White House, as BEING TOO TOXIC
Even so, for first 15 months, Trump would use Michael Cohen (worked for 'free' ie paid by Trump organization, not Trump personally) - in GOVERNMENT matters. Trump would call Michael Cohen on the speaker phone - to JOIN the discussions (knowing Cohen would RECORD that discussion)
Michael Cohen's lawyer's office was raided by FBI in April of 2018. That RAID destroyed Trump's freedom, because the FBI got all the evidence it ever wanted, to put Trump away for LIFE. They have been patiently waiting for Trump to become Citizen Trump - to process those crimes
CHRISTIE: Donald, if you pardon your kids, they will be forced to testify against you. And they will. You've trained them to be selfish. You know them. They would bury you. You cannot be this stupid. It would be the dumbest thing you could do.
BARR: What idiot suggested you should pardon your kids? Was it Hannity? Don't tell me you're listening to Giuliani again? Hasn't he gotten you into enough trouble?
IVANKA: Daddy, don't pardon anyone who is not family. Not Manafort, not Giuliani and gosh, not that vile creep Stephen Miller. The more you pardon, the more there will be investigations. Keep pardons just within the family, Daddy.
IVANKA: Daddy, don't pardon the boys. Junior is an idiot. Eric is a moron and isn't even our blood. We all know his dad is Gary Busey, so fuck him. Just pardon me
TRUMP: What about Jared? Should I give him a pardon?
IVANKA: That's up to you, Daddy. Jared's a bit dense but loves you more than Beavis & Butt-Head, or Rent-A-Mom
It was Fox. Fox created a Maga Nation (without that name) and promised their maga god Messiah would come some day. In 2015 when Trump came down that escallator, FOX proclaimed Trump as their dude
Trump didn't even know the lyrics
Fox News was born after Reagan ended the Fairness Doctrine in TV news broadcasts.
Fox was set up from the start to be a PROPAGANDA channel. To give PARTIAL and BIASED news. Not the full picture. They brainwashed 1/3 of American electorate over 3 decades
Long before Trump decided to run, Fox had been building a voter base for an ultra-conservative (and racist) candidate. Who would 'defend America in a war against Christmas' and who would 'build a wall' to keep brown people away etc. A cult of white men who feared a changing world
Trump was FLIRTING with this, what we know recognize as the Maga cult (#Cult45). He started his courtship with the Birtherism lies about Obama being born in Kenya - & Trump the fake Billionaire supposedly sent investigators to search Obama's birth certificate - remember all that?
The racist and RELIGIOUS nutters of the Maga cult were not naturally drawn to Trump. Many hated and feared Trump or despised him. But Trump was 'taught the lyrics' of how to speak to the Maga cult. The person who taught Trump to speak Maga was Stephen Miller from late 2015
I am doing my 'first thoughts' review & analysis of the Trump attempt of a Dictatorial Coup of America we just witnessed in DC the past few days. This is the first in a SERIES of THREADS. This looks at 'what happened'. This sets the stage
DC Coup Analysis Thread 2/
Before Wednesday 6.1.2021 Trump had been PLANNING and organizing that event. Trump knew it was date when Congress certifies Biden's victory to become next President. Trump is dumb enough, gullible enough & delusional enough to think it could be undone
DC Coup Analysis Thread 3/
Trump KNEW he had lost the actual popular vote. He had sent Giuliani to try to overturn several State elections which failed. Trump had come to believe, that on 6.1.2021 Congress COULD overturn the popular vote, and make Trump the President.
DC Coup Analysis Thread 4/
Any sane adult who tried to tell Trump the truth, was met with a petulant child who puts his hands over his ears and yells 'lalalalalala, I can't hear you'. Sadly a group of sick bastard liars egged Trump on into his delusions like Giuliani, Ted Cruz..
DC Coup Analysis Thread 5/
...Sadly a group of sick bastard liars egged Trump on into his delusions like Giuliani, Ted Cruz, Hannity & Lindsey Graham - convincing Trump that he CAN BE MADE PRESIDENT inspite of losing the popular vote, through that date 6.1.2021 in Congress
What happened at the Helsinki Hostage Summit?
Trump & Putin spent 2 hours 20 minutes alone, without any advisors. After the meeting we get this infamous photo, which essentially summarizes Trump. The Gimp & his Master. This thread is speculation
Helsinki Speculation 2/
What we do know is that Trump insisted there not be any advisors at the meeting. Unprecedented for a planned meeting. And it was remarkably long, 2 hours 20 minutes. After the meeting Trump took the interpreter's notes and tore them up. There is no record
Helsinki Speculation 3/
BEFORE the Helsinki Hostage Summit, Trump had been eager and enthusiastic about the upcoming summit. But after the personal meeting, he emerged ashen, as if frightened out of his mind, while Czar Vladimir the Smug wore that grin like the winner
Helsinki Speculation 4/
So nobody apart from Trump, Putin and the interpreter know what happened. Trump did NOT inform his advisors or the Secretary of State etc, what he had talked about.
BUT we can play detective. What can we infer? Trump was devastated, Putin triumphed
Helsinki Speculation 5/
My guess is that Trump had arrived with what he considered was a 'brilliant' plan. One that was 'fail-safe'. And obviously totally corrupt, that is why the secrecy. And Putin rejected it flat-out, but Putin managed to frighten the shit out of Trump.
BTW all GOP politicians who were on national stage in 2016, have developed a 'strategy' to survive the Trumpomess. They KNEW he will burn this down. They've all thought they had the perfect way to have a career beyond Trump. Here are a few examples:
Post-Trump Career Thread 2/
Some were Trump friends before his 2015 run for President started, and have remained with him until now. Like notorious serial pants-grabber & alleged attorney Rudy Giuliani.
When I say 'old friends', I mean these are criminals who need pardons
Post-Trump Career Thread 3/
Some opportunists jumped onboard early in 2016, but were smart enough to see Trump is setting up a kleptocracy, and JUMPED OFF before the inaugration to avoid all legal stench. Like failed Bond Villain, the Chrischristie
Post-Trump Career Thread 4/
Some with a spine, said No Trump and remained steadfastly away from him, not even appearing at the 2016 convention. Like then convention HOST Governor, John Kasich
Post-Trump Career Thread 5/
Some opportunists jumped onto the Trump train late (convention 2016) and hugged Trump ever since, hoping to take his voters into the 2024 cycle. But Ted Cruz is the most hated man in America, even this lunatic strategy won't make him President
Looking at the coming split of the GOP, next up is the era right up to Trump announcing his run in 2015. What happened in the decades right up to that moment. We get SPD, Sarah Palin's Disease. Alas, there is no cure
I like to joke that the GOP got infected by SPD Sarah Palin's Disease but many have pointed out that no, the GOP became sick well before Sarah. And the root cause is Newt Gingrich.
The first corruption of GOP as a politically viable party came via Newt
When the GOP came off its immense power era (2 terms of Reagan, record-national support, leading to rare 3rd term by one-term Daddy Bush) - then came suddenly the populist Bill Clinton - who stole the Republican thunder and stole the MIDDLE GROUND of politics
Newt Gingrich poisoned the GOP political minds that instead of contesting for the middle of the nation - the GOP should instead fight for the base. Poison the middle, enrage the base, and win that way.
Since Bill Clinton won in 1992, GOP has only once won 50% of the election
That once exception was 2004 - when W Bush got the benefit of the 9/11 terrorist attack good will. He was NOT a popular President. It was a sympathy vote. Apart from that, GOP has not gotten over 50% of popular vote once, since Newt Gingrich's mad political 'strategy'
Aka let's try to do SPD again, Sarah Palin's Disease. Sorry, my 2nd Thread was longer than I expected with Newt.
So now let's do Sarah Palin properly, in her own thread.
While George Wallace is the grandfather to Trump's run in 2016 (starting in 2015), there are not enough racist voters to win the election. Not even enough racists to win the NOMINATION of the GOP.
Trump needed to expand his support in 2015 & 2016. He needed INSANE voters.
The real prototype candidate to Donald Trump is Sarah Palin - a candidate so bad, she COST John McCain millions of votes in 2008 against Obama. Yes, exit polls are clear, for every 2 votes Sarah brought in to McCain she brought 3 votes to Obama. Net cost to McCain several MILLION
Sarah Palin was the Fake News candidate, who bravely battled reality and 'Lame Stream Media' for the past 12 years since her loss in 2008. She had a lunatic base of voters who believe in the conspiracy theories she spews. As Sarah Palin wasn't running, those voter went to Trump
We need to discuss the Tea Party. Back in the 2008 cycle, the progressives had a spontaneous movement in the economic criss to 'Occupy Wall Street'.
VERY EARLY in that movement, a 'sister' movement started as the Tea Party, against big government
So my Ph D treaties on Twitter, about how Trump split up the GOP. We start with history of course. And we go to the political era before Trump. To the origins.
No. Not Sarah Palin.
No. Not Newt Gingrich. The origins:
George Wallace, the last racist
So reality check to my younger Tweeps, some who do not know this. Up to the 1960s, it was the DEMOCRATIC party that was the racist party and the Republicans stood for equal rights. Yes that is true.
The South had 'Dixie-crats' who were KKK Nazis, Democrats who were openly racist
The last Racist to openly run for President to win some (Southern) states - was former Democrat - turned Independent, George Wallace.
Democrats threw the racists out of their party and embraced the minorities, with a passion. Today it seems impossible to imagine DEMs as racists
George Wallace ran as an Independent (the American Independent Party, does that sound MAGA to you?)
When George Wallace's runs ended, the racists had no party to call their own. They infiltrated the Republican party who tolerated them. THAT WAS A MISTAKE
We need to understand the roots to Maganutters. George Wallace & Dixie-Crat / American Independent Party racists were mostly from the South. Land owners, whites. Gun-lovers. Fake Christians (churches were strongly segregated, so WHITE Christians in South easily racists)
Allen Weisselberg, Trump accountant will lose 5 criminal cases and unless he flips, will spend rest of his life in prison. His first criminal court case had first hearing in Sept
Let's do full update to Weisselberg path to take Trump to prison.
Weisselberg Oct Thread 2/
Donald Trump faces 5 paths to prison for LIFE
1. Weisselberg (NY Taxes etc)
2. Giuliani (Ukraine etc)
3. Matt Gaetz (leads to Trump selling pardons)
4. Roger Stone (Jan 6th)
5. Tom Barrack (UAE etc incl extortion of Qatar)
Plus DOZENS of lesser cases
Weisselberg Oct Thread 3/
Allen Weisselberg faces 5 CRIMINAL trials:
1. NY Taxes (Manhattan DA)
2. Money laundering for Mafia (NY Attorney General)
3. Sanctions busting (Federal)
4. Campaign finance & inaugration (DC and Federal)
5. Emoluments (Federal)
The THIRD = worst crime
Weisselberg Oct Thread 4/
Weisselberg 1, Manhattan DA, is SIMPLE tax fraud case, where prosecution has SLAM DUNK case
They have the 'smoking gun' - they have the DOUBLE BOOKKEEPING. He will lose this case
They ALSO have witnesses
Trump (& his sons) also CONFESSED THIS CRIME
Weisselberg Oct Thread 5/
In EVERY crime, Trump was Mafia boss. Mafia boss is ALWAYS tried last. Like with NY Taxes:
1. Michael Cohen
3. Trump kids (Don Jr, Ivanka, Eric)
4. Trump himself
The Mafia boss is ALWAYS tried LAST. That is how this works, ALWAYS
Hold on. I am now editing & re-reading it. Should be posted in about 30 minutes to an hour... but we're doing the Ghouliani today...
To all in this thread. If you do not see the Giuliani Thread yet because your TW might not have updated your page, here is direct
Giuliani Oct Thread 1/— Tomi T Ahonen (@tomiahonen) October 11, 2021
As we await Rudy Giuliani's arrest, let's do an update to the biggest criminal cases Rudy faces, and how this Giuliani path will take Trump to prison for life (separate from Weisselberg path that also takes Trump to prison for life)
Our October update pic.twitter.com/2j577mLwm5
It is a crime against the United States of America
It is INCREDIBLY serious, federal life remaining. Life without parole
Sanctions are imposed by USA against a foreign government. Because USA is world financial center, that is VERY damaging to foreign payments. Because US dollar is most used international payment currency, it limits any other country's financial activity enormously
Current Iranian sanctions were imposed by USA in 1987 (Reagan) when Iran supported terrorism against shipping. Were expanded in 1995 (Clinton) & in 2006 (W Bush). Trump has circumvented these with Turkish bank, and Trump properties in USA It is money laundering crime for a NATION
When Putin invaded Ukraine in 2014 and annexed Crimea, Obama slapped biggest sanctions in US history against Russia. Trump then worked with Putin to circumvent these, partly with Putin's bank with offices conveniently in Trump Tower.
Sanctions busting is a financial activity where a US citizen helps a sanctioned country bypass the sanctions. So it is a crime against the Unted States of America
Legally, it is not 'treason' but is a 'treasonous' crime, somewhat similar. Assisting America's enemies illegally
