a Nightmare, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Ignoramus, Narcissitic Personality Disorter, The FBI
After months of investigation, mere days before the vote, and having failed to find dead bodies in Mrs Clinton‘s closet, the FBI chose to flex its muscles by undermining Mrs Clinton’s bid for the presidency of the United States. It appears that more emails have surfaced. We do not know what they contain but they have jeopardized the success of Mrs Clinton campaign and the security of the citizens of the United States. More importantly, they are putting the world at risk. No Mr Trump is not presidential material.
To be absolutely precise, the FBI, the American Federal Bureau of Investigation, may have sabotaged the 2016 American presidential elections. Are these new emails or emails waiting to be investigated? How can anyone know? The timing would suggest they were sitting in a file cabinet or were handed over at the worst moment. We have no way of knowing. The campaign was a circus and it has turned into what seems a nightmare.
At any rate, witch-hunting has begun. There were rumours suggesting connivance between Mr Trump and Russia. This matter was dealt with promptly. We have been told that their is no connivance between Mr Trump and Russia.
Not only does the FBI investigation seem a witch-hunt, but the nominee who is in serious trouble is Mr Trump, not Mrs Clinton. Therefore, it may be a case of mistaken identity.
How can anyone forget that
“Trump’s trouble began on October 7, when The Washington Post released a video in which Trump boasts of sexually assaulting women. “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful [women]—I just start kissing them,” Trump said. “It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.” He added, “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.” The video produced a wave of revulsion, and many Republicans denounced him, with some withdrawing support.”
Sexual assaults are a statutory offence in several countries and damning in the United States, with the possible exception of Mr Trump. The facts that emerged on 7 October 2016 caused many Republicans to distance themselves from Mr Trump. But the FBI did not promptly lift the cloud of suspicion that could lead to Mrs Clinton’s defeat. It could be that the FBI chose to ignore that a known sexual predator was still an official nominee to the presidency of the United States, drowning in an ocean of unsubstantiated suspicion the better qualified candidate. I doubt that Mrs Clinton would have run for office if there were serious improprieties in her conduct.
Former General and Secretary of State Colin Powell has credibility. He stated that he would vote for Mrs Clinton because she is an experienced political figure, not a frivolous comment. Mr Trump is new to politics and knows so little about the various dossiers the President of the United States must be familiar with that one wonders why the Republican Party chose him as their nominee to the presidency. They perhaps expected that Mr Trump would present a clear and coherent platform, but he didn’t.
For instance, he gathered a group of women who were ready to say that former President Bill Clinton was a womanizer. Mr Trump should have known that former President Bill Clinton’s indiscretions have nothing to do with Mrs Clinton’s ability to play her role as President of the United States in a competent manner and it so happens that in the current race to the presidency, Mrs Clinton is the competent nominee, not Mr Trump. Mr Trump did not know that forcing oneself on a woman was objectionable and perhaps a crime. It is a crime in many countries.
Besides, Mr Trump planned attack on former President Bill Clinton was a “trumpism.” It was yet again avoidance of a discussion of the many issues facing his nation, such as immigration, gun-control, the crisis in the Middle East, matters Presidents of the United States deal with. Given the years she has devoted to serving the people of the United, Mrs Clinton is familiar with these issues, which, as noted above, makes her the competent nominee. Mr Trump’s campaign was no more than a distasteful sideshow and sadly “bombastic” (Paul Krugman, NYT).
The article below, by Paul Krugman, dates back to May 2016, but it has not lost its significance. To read the article, please click on its title.
Please do keep in mind that, if elected, Mr Trump intends to build a wall separating the Unites States and Mexico. It would prevent Mexicans from entering the United States. He has also stated that, if he elected to the presidency, he would not allow Muslims into the United States. In his opinion, all Muslims are terrorists. Moreover, this sexual predator has threatened to jail women who have undergone an abortion. Finally, as our colleague B. Ashley has written, he suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (see Wikipedia). Mr Trump’s behaviour is “characterized by an exaggerated feelings of self-importance,” or grandiosity. If a man states that he should be proclaimed President of the United States, by-passing an election, not only is he assaulting democracy, but his perception of reality could be that of an absolute monarch. All humans exhibit a degree of narcissism. We think we are important, but not the point of claiming we should be the president of a country, except as an obvious joke. That would be called a sense of self-entitlement.
After posting my last article, I realized that it lacked a conclusion, or final sentence about democracy. In a democracy, people have the right to choose their president, but they also have to live with the consequences of their choice. Mr Trump does not know poverty. He can afford the best care, the best medication, luxurious dwellings, meals in the finest restaurants and lives in a tower he owns.
If elected to the presidency, will he be able to see that others are homeless, hungry, unable to feed their children or to pay a doctor’s fees? Mrs Clinton can see the needs of others, but although she is an experienced politician, which is an advantage, she has spent decades in Washington. Some people think a change is, by definition, for the better.

A well-written piece, and I support your points. I will leave a piece from my article as additional food for thought:
“There are more and more articles accumulating on Donald Trump in association with the topic of mental illness, … The key questions to voters are: “Do you want a person who is questionably devoid of conscience and empathy, with a self-serving orientation and thirst to dominate others, to control war and peace matters?” and “Do you want someone with a penchant for outrageous, disrespectful and pathologically untruthful statements to represent the United States?” B. Ashley
Dear B. Ashley,
By now, Mr Trump has made it very clear that mentally, emotionally and politically unfit to be the President of the United States. One has to be delusional to say that he will be the President of the United States even if defeated. And what about his programme. We know nothing about his platform except for his expelling Mexicans and not letting Muslims enter the United States. One has every reason to think the FBI’s announcement that there were more tapes was planned. The FBI is not telling us about the content of these emails suggesting that the haven’t found anything that could harm Mrs Clinton. Besides, the timing tells all. It is far too convenient. I will put your questions in my next post.
Thank you for writing. They will also appear in “Comments.”
Well said! I admit that I’ve had UN-Christian thoughts about Trump lately. So to work on this, my friend and I are saying a Novena. So scared he might get elected. Thanks for the great post!
The CIA had months to investigate Mrs Clinton. Moreover, she invited them to say all, nothing less. Donald Trump has not provided a single reassuring word as to how he would protect Americans and diffuse the crisis in the Near and Middle East. Making it impossible for Muslims to enter the United States is futile. He has insulted the people of the Near and Middle East. I fear there will be more attacks by terrorists and perhaps a war. Lord help us. I am also praying. Americans are jumping off a high cliff not knowing there is no more than two feet of water below. My current question is who and what put the CIA to news that there are more emails. One does not find new emails a week from the election.
I’m do glad to hear from you.

Yes, a friend and I have been praying. Two novenas that will end on voting day. I, too, worry about a war if Trump is elected. I’m sure we are not alone. We’ll see what happens.
Thank you Teri, Yes it’s “Ave Marias” in all available musical versions. I’ve never been so pious. I have put a small cross on my desk (the coffin of a deceased aunt), and one in the drawer of my night table (the coffin of beloved brother). I’m also turning the matter into a bit of a comedy. It appears Donald Trump raped a 13-year-old and threatened to kill her if she talked. One more scandal in a series of scandals. Our poor neighbours to the south. I fear a war if Donald Trump is elected. He is impulsive. Besides, he has lied so often that one would be foolish to believe anything he says. Some people do not know they are lying. They create the reality that suits the moment and believe it. There’s never been so eventful an election. Best wishes, Micheline

Love the male privilege in all of this…
The male privilege is there: clear as day. A country needs leaders who care for the people. Stability is essential. Who and what put the CIA up to claiming there was a new cache of emails. If there was anything amiss with Mrs Clinton, the CIA would know by now. It was not possible to clear Mr Trump almost instantly. They have left the electorate standing in midair. Mrs Clinton’s experience made her into the better nominee. It’s so sad.
Thank you for writing.

It’s strange to look at it from an outsiders perspective, as I’m sure all of America are asking the same question we are, how were these two candidates the choices on the ballot paper?
Excellent questions! People like a change, which was not taken into account. And nothing can explain why a political party would choose Donald Trump as its nominee. He does not have the qualifications. Yes millions of Americans are asking the same question.
Newspapers are disclosing his children’s worth, which is irrelevant, but attractive to voters who have not seen he is no platform. It’s the “sensational”. I thank you for writing.

This wouldn’t have anything to do with her trouble, does it?
Yes, it does! There were emails, the matter was dealt with and nothing wrong was found. The case was closed. But although the FBI found no evidence of wrongdoing, this was suspicion could be raised again. Mrs Clinton asked for disclosure of everything the FBI has, but it has not been able to comply, which suggests that the FBI has not found anything. If it can establish in a matter of hours that there is no connivance between Mr Trump and Russia, it can also inform voters regarding the content of the supposed new cache of emails. The electorate requires evidence of wrongdoing which the FBI has not supplied. Therefore, one wonders whether or not there is evidence. Mere suspicion does not suffice. The timing suggests a ploy, the classic smoke screen. The FBI needs to substantiate it has new and harmful information. If it cannot substantiate it has proof of wrongdoing, we are left to conclude it has nothing. Thank you for writing. 🙂
A nightmare, indeed
It is Derrick. The FBI has been looking at her emails for a long time. They did not find anything. So the case was closed. She asked that all findings be disclosed, but the FBI claims its investigation will not be over before November 8. Mrs Clinton hasn’t a chance of being elected. She is a courageous woman and can control her emotions, but this is a very low blow. Hillary needs a miracle. So I’m praying. Thank you for writing. Take care, Micheline 🙂
