Are they stupid, gullible or malicious?

Or maybe they are just nuts. Political derangement is a mental disease for which the left is highly susceptible. PDT is demonstrating that every principle they have lived by is wrong, but rather than being willing to learn, they have become even more worm-eaten than ever. It is not just sickening to watch, of course, but frightening. These people will have their way if they can get it. The following are just the latest round of posts at Lucianne.com.

Clapper Disinformation Campaign
Wall Street Journal, by Holman Jenkins, Jr.    Original Article

James Clapper, President Obama’s director of national intelligence, gained a reputation among liberals as a liar for covering up the existence of secret data-collection programs. Since becoming a private citizen, he has claimed that President Trump is a Russian “asset” and that Vladimir Putin is his “case officer,” then when pressed said he was speaking “figuratively.” His latest assertion, in a book and interviews, that Mr. Putin elected Mr. Trump is based on non-reasoning that effectively puts defenders of U.S. democracy in a position of having to prove a negative. “It just exceeds logic and credulity that they didn’t affect the election,”
Giuliani says Trump won’t sit for

President Trump’s lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani said Tuesday that Trump will not agree to an interview with the special counsel until prosecutors allow the president’s legal team to review documents related to the FBI’s use of an informant to interact with members of Trump’s 2016 campaign. “We need all the documents before we can decide whether we are going to do an interview,” Giuliani said in an interview with The Washington Post, using Trump’s term “spygate” to refer to the FBI actions, which former officials have said were well within bounds. Giuliani’s latest demand further ratcheted up the pressure that Trump and

Trump Derangement Syndrome: Over the long weekend, President Trump´s critics were in a sputtering rage over his supposedly losing 1,500 illegal immigrant children, sticking them in cages, and putting others on specially equipped prison buses. Turns out, it was all 100% bogus. On Sunday, photos of children laying inside a chain-link fence cage starting flying around the internet. New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein forwarded it to his followers, saying that “all of these photos are disturbing, but the first two are especially awful.” CNN´s Hadas Gold described the pictures as “First Photos of separated migrant children at holding facility.” Outrage quickly

Economy: Have Donald Trump´s policies had a big impact on the U.S. economy and its competitiveness? The answer, we think, is an obvious yes. Now comes a new report, based mainly on “hard” data, that confirms that. The report comes from the IMD Competitiveness Center in Switzerland. Each year it ranks countries by 256 different variables to come up with its global competitiveness rankings. For 2018, there was a surprise: The U.S. leapt three places to take over the top spot in global competitiveness — just ahead of Hong Kong, Singapore, the Netherlands and Switzerland. That jump was based on its “strength

    DT critics are all three. And don’t care to discuss the subject.

  2. NB

    Cognitive dissonance at work – everything leftists believe most passionately has been proved false. And it is not just in relation to DT directly, including Spygate. The left is failing at just about everything right now:
    – The socialist EU is continuing its slow collapse;
    – Global warming just won’t happen (and Donziger shows up the corruption of the warmists);
    – Venezuela (say no more);
    – North Korea is exiting its role as communist China’s attack dog against the West;
    – Iran, which Obama did his best to arm with nuclear weapons over the next seven or so years, might go the same way;
    – Perhaps worst of all, the internet, which was supposed to be the left’s private domain, has turned sharply.
    The left thought it was in for decades of supremacy until November 8, 2016. It has been in declining mental health since.

    “Are they stupid, gullible or malicious?”
    Who?

    The Trump administration that launched and is sustaining this investigation for some reason instead of going after actual crooks who are on tv-shows promoting their books?

    Who are you even angry at?

    Looks like you have a bit of an anger issue yourself, Iamdick Pentupeter.

    They have been brainwashed, err educated, and can’t think differently. However they are excellent reciters of their authoritative texts.

  7. ACTOldFart

    Check over at Tim Blair. It turns out the pics of immigrant kids in cages, blamed on the cruel Trump, were actually taken during Obama’s administration.

    Possibly one day irrational hatred of a political figure could be part of a DSM-IV diagnosis.

    Irrational, delusions, obsessing about the hated one continually, where it overshadows their normal thinking patterns. Possibly a cult like flavour to it as well, where being with people of the same mental disorder strengthens the mental illness in some way, where daydreaming of assassination of the hated one becomes logical and rational (to them).

    As Blair has noted, collectivists’ heads are now exploding over a picture of Fatty Trump’s daughter holding her baby son.

    Batsh*t crazy cretins.

  12. Old School Conservative

    Here is an example of malicious.
    Bill Maher, getting into the details of his “joke” about Donald Trump being an ape:
    “Donald Trump must immediately submit to DNA testing to determine whether in fact he is the love child of a human woman and an orangutang from the Brooklyn Zoo (shows photo of DT next to an orange-haired orangutang). Look, Donald, I’m not saying your mother was repeatedly f**king an orangutang in the 1940’s. I hope it’s not true. But given your face, your physique, your intelligence level, and of course your hair. The American people deserve proof that your mother did not spend most of her nights in 1945 covering her body in banana oil, sneaking into the monkey cage and compulsively humping an orange haired ape.”

    Did I mention the loud cheering, full throated laughter, and enthusiastic clapping from Bill Maher’s studios audience?

    Bill Maher deserves nothing but contempt. He is an evil, vicious little grub.

  13. Candy is right, again;

    Possibly a cult like flavour to it as well, where being with people of the same mental disorder strengthens the mental illness in some way, where daydreaming of assassination of the hated one becomes logical and rational (to them).

  14. OSC;

    Just imagine these narcissist fools in charge of a country – it would be just like the USSR.

    I propose that any liberal think tank — like the Brookings Institution and the Economic Policy Institute in America and the Grattan Institute and the Ponds Institute in Australia — should have an asterisk attached to its advice (under an acid-washed impression of Paul Krugman) explaining that, since liberals want free markets abolished and replaced by state socialism, they are enemies of free market economics and their thoughts on economics should therefore be regarded as comic relief, even satire, from people who, because of our generosity in giving them the freedom they hate, have way too much political power, yet are being saved from starvation by our compassion in creating artificial jobs for them in the academic/media lunatic fringe.

  16. Tom

    Just imagine these narcissist fools in charge of a country – it would be just like the USSR.

    Um, they are in charge. They are the American ruling class.

    Yet, foolishly defying the common wisdom that if voting could change anything, it would be illegal, there’s a renegade in Washington, taking on the ruling class and calling out its lapdog media enforcers. And just look at what the ruling class does to him and anyone who supports him.

    The anti Trump disease it an outbreak of psychotic disorder un paralleled since the national Socialists murdered millions of Jews and othe poor people in the 1940s . There are serious consequences for the sufferers they resort to continual lying theft , corruption and other anti social behaviour . My treatment for them would be to place them in secure facilities where they were treated by continual hard work very good for the mind hard work ,only idle people have time to plot ,feed them three times a day with plain wholesome food ,porrige,soup,stews and bread . We could call them Socialist Readjustment Facilities SRFs,they would remain there till totally cured or dead of natural causes , the guards who ensure they stay there we could call “Carers . “Their removal from thr community would be a relief to all sensible people and stop them from spreading the disease to other people ,whatever it cost would be miles cheaper than socialism .

    No Iampeter will never admit to being wrong. Iampeter has read Ayn Rand, you know!

    It would be unwise to believe they are stupid. They are far too sophisticated to be gullible, but maybe they are over confident. But they are malicious, so be careful.

  20. Dr. Fred Lenin

    When Donald gets his second term and wipes the floor with sanders or whatever commo the decromats put up,psychiatrists will have a bonanza the waiting lists will be huge for consultations, drug companies won’t be able to make enough anti depressants ,suicides will soar , commitals for mental health reasons will be huge psychiatric facilities will be overcrowded it will be a socialists hell . I only feel sorry for JC and his fellow Lifeline workers they will be flat chat, trying to help lefties even here in Australia .

  21. Makka

    And just look at what the ruling class does to him and anyone who supports him.

    Too few of those. I see Trey Gowdie has dropped his mask and now shows off his deep state creds.

    It’s a miracle he won, moreso if he manages to bring the elites down.

  22. Jannie

    drug companies won’t be able to make enough anti depressants

    That is an interesting thought Fred. It might be worth looking into some of the stocks.

  23. Egor

    Consider how much hate there is for Donald and what he stands for in the Republican Party.
    Mueller only happened because the Republicans in Congress and the Senate allowed it.
    The teflon Don is a an existential threat to the bureaucracy and corporate globalists who rule the US, they don’t like that.
