Trump-Clinton Divide: Extremism in defence of peace is no vice, duplicity in pursuit of war is no virtue

Donald Trump is being attacked for his exuberant but genuine personality, whereas it is Hillary Clinton's convoluted and ambition driven character which is actually sinister and dangerous.

The only way to get the truth out of certain people, is to allow them to speak until they say something by accident that carries an unprecedented emotional intensity. That is the truth, one way or another, and sooner rather than later even the most prolific liar is bound to let slip.

This theory applies particularly to Hillary Clinton, a woman whose public persona is that of a refined, confident and reliable stateswoman: a perfect cover for a murderous psychopath who, alarmingly is too often mistaken for being simply boring. But she too, betrays herself, and one of the ways she does so is through projection: whatever Hillary or Bill are guilty of, she and her allies accuse others of those same crimes.

Watching Donald Trump repeatedly being blamed for Bill Clinton’s crimes by stooges often paid by those of a similar ilk to left wing feminist lawyer Gloria Allred, is both depressing and sinister. This lady has no qualms about destroying innocent men’s lives, indeed her avarice and contempt for humanity is not limited to men for she has made a career exploiting vulnerable women through offers of money, fame and grandeur in exchange for making false accusations against male celebrities. It is not difficult to imagine Allred finding a vulnerable woman with an unfortunate or questionable past and asking “Have you ever been in a room with Donald Trump? We can make some big money by saying…”.

She usually either loses or the case doesn’t go to trial.

By the same token, no pervert in the world will let on that he is a pervert, certainly not deliberately and publicly. If Donald Trump were an actual rapist, he would not be so stupid as to constantly give himself away with meaningless pseudo-sexist remarks. On the contrary, sick people usually go to great measures to prove otherwise, often going as far as gaining occupations pertaining to a specific perversion, or orchestrating protests and campaigns against causes they are guilty of themselves. This is a well-known defence mechanism called ‘Reaction Formation”.  Jimmy Savile was a perfect example. But Cyril Smith and Jeremy Thorpe also fit the part. I can’t think of any exception that proves the rule.

Donald Trump is many things, but he is not odd or sinister. However, had he wanted to appease the establishment and the media, he would have behaved quite differently. Instead he chose to be himself and have fun while at it, which rendered him tailor-made for attack, abandonment and ridicule from the establishment and the mainstream media.

I have noticed a trend whereby people conflate personality with character.

In the grand scheme, it is irrelevant whether or not one likes the personality of the leader of a country. What’s more, a statesman’s personality is not a reliable indicator of his or her statesmanship: their character is, and by character I mean the personal morals and values by which one conducts one’s life.

To judge leaders by what they say alone, is foolish. To judge them by how they dress and wear their hair is downright idiotic. One can be boisterous, facetious – even occasionally thoughtless and still a thorough and honest leader.

Hillary Clinton may appear rational and dependable, but as most of us know by now thanks to Wikileaks and other trustworthy and unbiased sources, she’s reckless, paranoid and murderous. Her main objective is to spread suffering throughout the world; to desensitise and obliterate what is left of humanity in order to satisfy her destruction-driven id and overactive superego simultaneously. Her psyche is distorted; her identity contradictory at best and nonexistent at worst.

Despite all the information available on Wikileaks about Hillary’s long-standing crimes and corruption, a lesser-known, big-mouthed actor by the name of Bryan Cranston is still banging on about Trump’s personality which, I repeat, is inconsequential:

“He just, he’s a remarkable, that’s why he’s so Shakespearean, because he’s so, he’s so, he’s just unlike anyone we’ve ever seen in that realm”.

Perhaps he’s unlike anyone YOU have ever seen, Bryan mate.

This guy is not making sense. He is saying nothing intelligible. Trump at times says everything and nothing – but often ironically. This guy is saying nothing at all, but irony clearly wasn’t part of his degree course.

There really is nothing remarkable about Trump from an analytical point of view. He’s not complicated in any sense. He hasn’t committed any crimes. Businesses, as any businessman and economist would confirm, suffer vicissitudes. But the UN Charter and US constitution are clear, and Hillary has violated both. Anyone who would care to do some research would come to the same conclusion.

Donald Trump is a simple, forthright male with good ideas. He is a traditional anti-interventionist conservative, unlike George W. Bush whose foreign policy was neo liberal/neo con.

Trump is anti-free trade and, unlike Angela Merkel who has violated the Dublin Convention, is against open borders, if it means keeping ISIS, the Mexican drug cartels and other miscreants out and his countrymen safe.

Even his flaws are predictable and human, as well as predictably male. I can’t see how a simple man with good ideas can be worse than a dishonest woman with nuclear ideas. The man is bright, incorruptible and likeable. He is what he is for all to see.

It is Hillary Clinton who wants war with Russia and to ring China with missiles – two things that could well lead to Nuclear War.  Donald Trump wants collaboration with Russia, and firm trade deals with China.

It is Hillary Clinton not Donald Trump who wants to continue funding and arming ISIS and AL-Qaeda and to kill the secular president of Syria; she again is the one who wants to drone Julian Assange and rig international elections (as documented in leaked emails and audio tapes). It is she whose record on various minority civil rights has been dubious, conflicted and in constant transition.  Indeed she was opposed to gay marriage until the Supreme Court made its ruling, which Barack Obama enthusiastically supported.

This demonstrates that she is a friend of no-one but her own ambition.

It was Hillary Clinton who was heard on tape referring to the Palestinian people contemptuously as “these cultures” during an interview with The Jewish Press in 2006, when she was re-running for New York Senator. She also added, “We should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win” apropos of the Palestine Election.

Finally, it was Hillary Clinton who openly praised a man called Robert Byrd, a big political Klansman and a famous racist.

An expressive individual of a practical and amiable nature, Donald Trump is constitutionally incapable of relating to someone with Hillary’s personality and character, and particularly her penchant for wars.

I have never heard Hillary Clinton express solidarity with the people of Libya or Syria, much less sorrow. How could she, when she allowed her own ambassador to be burned alive?

Trump has expressed a great deal of empathy for war victims as well as condemnation for the perpetrators, both those at home and in foreign lands.

Domestic affairs were never enough for Hillary Clinton however. Just remember that if she wins, the only domestic policy to worry about may well be how to dispose of the radioactive dead bodies.
