There once was a time when the GOP was against moral relativism.

Now with the alt right in control you don't hear such talk anymore. Why? My guess is because of dataism ( Harari 'Homo Deus'). Human emotions are just algorithms (instructions)that ensure the survival of your genes or your greater tribe. I agree. But we are not in the business of allowing crimes just because it may benefit the criminal in an evolutionary way, or the genes on the whole, by practicing such strategies. A strategy is rape. Yeah for rapists. It is an evolutionary strategy for that small % of men who have the impulse. So too murdering your wife when she separates from you or has an affair for a small percentage of men that is an evolutionary strategy that keeps women in line. But over time we have elevated things called values. Misogyny is unacceptable in this day and age. That's a value. Don't forget to ask the alt righters what their values are when you come across them. Ask everyone you meet in an alt right infested website to list their values. And may that be the wedge that separates the alt right from the rest of us. Let's have a values war. Put 'em up.

But the GOP want to stop Newsom from running for President.

They will attack him in California. I bet all the GOP 'great' political minds will be involved. That way they can wound Newsom or get him to say things that would hurt in him the Presidential race in 2020, as he runs for Governor of California. Of course he would win the governorship and Thiel would lose. But could it be used by the GOP to clip Newsom's wings nationally.

The GOP is going to use Thiel to attack and ruin

Gavin Newsom. They are afraid of Gavin because he is dyslexic and reads crowds brilliantly and communicates with crowds like dyslexics do: both Bushes, Reagan, Kennedy, Paul Wellstone, Trump, Eleanor Roosevelt (she was her husbands eyes and ears), Churchill and Woodrow Wilson are/were all dyslexic.

Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon met with Trudeau aides today. Apparently

as the meeting went on both became more convinced that trade with Canada was somewhat of a good thing. CTV News Reinvent the wheel much?

The white genocide is the birth rate for white people (it is the

same for any woman who has access to a job and some security). Why the Alt Right attack white women. They want them barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen. Since men will follow women everywhere, the Alt Right have to try and lower the self esteem of women to get them back under control.

You will come across some who don't want lives to be saved in Africa too. I read one nut say that africans would be allowed to have sex but not children. They are making plans way into the future where rich white people live forever and thus, the population has to decrease (if people live to 130 that adds two whole generations of humans to the population...there is not enough room for that.....so it is all about who gets the medical care to keep them alive when the science gets there). Not everybody can live forever obviously. I say it should go to humans who have done something amazing with their lives, like Maya Angelou, not to the richest like the Koch brothers. Think if it went to the richest only then there would be two generations more of rich white people alive to vote republican in elections.

It is the very nature of dyslexics like Trump to get their information

in a concrete way from various sources. Someone in the tribe has to be good at the big picture and bad at mass fictions. Why people voted for Trump: in this time of rapid technological change and globalization he promises to pull all the systems down. Great if your tribe has turned into a murderous cult led by psychopaths (think Churchill the dyslexic vs. Hitler the psychopath). But that is the secret of dyslexics. They can't be spoonfed policy. Dyslexics simply cannot be spoonfed information. They have to suss it out for themselves. No amount of professional us government policy, policy that puts complex American needs to the forefront, is going to make it into a coherent form into Trump's brain in the short term. Long term maybe. He is always going to be attracted to and need all points of view from outside sources. Right now it is Russia that sings to him. He will always more heavily weigh outlier information as it will come to him in a 3D fashion, particularly from strongmen, as what they do is very dramatic. Primary information is what researchers and dyslexics love. He has already turned away daily intelligence briefings. I doubt economic policy is going to be more compelling than that. We are definitely in trouble.

Yup. Dyslexics are excellent on defense. Not good on offence. Trump always needs

to foil somebody when he counter punches. Not much of a punch without an enemy.

Remember that gaslighting doesn't have to be hugely emotional. Sure

vehement denial of the victim's experiences causes shock and trauma and confusion in them as they are gaslight ed and wholely denied. Manafort did it and so did Trump spokesthinggys during the election. But gaslighting can also be a very subtle non reaction to information. The way Trump and the whole GOP react to the Russian interference as if it is a nothing burger or that it was good the Democratic emails were hacked so there would be transparency. Don't let them cool you out. That is an expression in psychopathic literature: 'cooling the mark out'. So that the mark/victim doesn't get the manipulator into trouble once they figure out they have been had. Follow your gut, heart and head. Don't give up on asking congress to look into the Russian interference in the election.

I predict a major investigation that overwhelms the Trump Administration

and results in impeachment. I mean if those DNC robbers during Watergate had released information from their bugs to the Republican party that the party then used, that would have been a crime right? Why is it any different? Sure the GOP pipe up and in a preternaturally relaxed way say "so what?"that is gaslighting just as much as the more emotive and more familiar type of gaslighting. The purpose is to downplay the emotions on the left and center on this issue, but it is gaslighting. Follow your guts Democrats. Follow what you know. Ignore the GOP calling it a nothing burger.
