THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP
Since the start of Donald Trump’s presidential run, one question has quietly but urgently permeated the observations of concerned citizens: What is wrong with him? Constrained by the American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” which inhibits mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures they have not personally examined, many of those qualified to answer this question have shied away from discussing the issue at all. The public has thus been left to wonder whether he is mad, bad, or both.
In THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP, twenty-seven psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts argue that, in Mr. Trump’s case, their moral and civic “duty to warn” America supersedes professional neutrality. They then explore Trump’s symptoms and potentially relevant diagnoses to find a complex, if also dangerously mad, man.
Philip Zimbardo and Rosemary Sword, for instance, explain Trump’s impulsivity in terms of “unbridled and extreme present hedonism.” Craig Malkin writes on pathological narcissism and politics as a lethal mix. Gail Sheehy, on a lack of trust that exceeds paranoia. Lance Dodes, on sociopathy. Robert Jay Lifton, on the “malignant normality” that can set in everyday life if psychiatrists do not speak up.
“His madness is catching, too. From the trauma people have experienced under the Trump administration to the cult-like characteristics of his followers, he has created unprecedented mental health consequences across our nation and beyond.
“It’s not all in our heads. It’s in his.”

what is GASLIGHTING
Russell says, “I want to present my own take on this as kindly as I can to my friends and family who voted for Trump, but as gently as possible without negative name-calling or anything, gently explain why his presidency is inappropriate for the modern world.”
TRUMP PLANS MARTIAL LAW VIOLENT TAKE-OVER
Only the Joint Chiefs can save our country. But will they?
Stochastic murderer plans violent overthrow & martial law.
Soon cometh the time for the good Joint Chiefs to come to the aid of their country.
Though in the past the Joint Chiefs have advocated killing U.S. civilians to start wars and were complicit in the Twin Tower casus belli and murder or Iraquis, they could redeem themselves by deposing Dictator Trump and facilitating a constitutional convention.
Pray they shall when the Beast shows its take-over plan.

Overlords of the Singularity: The Manipulation of Humankind by Hidden UFO Intelligences and the Quest for Transcendence – October 24, 2016 by Russell Scott Brinegar
Here’s what Russell says about his book (We loved it):
The book is a byproduct of a near-death experience that occurred to the author in August 2009. During this experience, the author became aware of the underlying multi-dimensional nature of reality, and began a personal journey into a realm that, as a former material reductionist, he had dismissed as fantasy, such as ghosts, poltergeists, cryptids, and UFOs.
When he began his journey into the UFO literature, he was amazed at how vast and rich this literature is in the public domain. There is certainly enough information to ascertain that, amidst the many accounts of encounters with flying saucers and their occupants, there is a core of reality among the misperceptions and hoaxes that cannot simply be dismissed. There is a core reality underneath it all that must be dealt with. In his research, he noticed that many books focused on proving the reality and factual existence of the so-called flying saucers, but the actual purpose and agenda of the elusive objects was anyone’s guess.
All the UFO authors seemed to struggle with this. We know that they are here and that they are real, but what do they want? This became the focus of this author’s interest, and eventually resulted in his book, “Overlords of the Singularity.” Overlords explores the connection between ghosts and UFOs, the various Simulation Hypotheses that many scientists are currently contemplating, that the universe itself might be some sort of computer matrix attempting to solve a problem.
We discuss UFOs and the coming technological Singularity, which futurists such as Ray Kurzweil predict will occur sometime between 2045-2080 when sentient artificial intelligence has been created that is billions of times smarter than human.
A synopsis of over 40 prominent UFO researchers is provided, all of whom hint that the UFOs have something to do with the development of technology on earth, but most of the UFO researchers are from an era in which the Singularity had not yet been postulated. This author combines the fruits of decades of labor into UFO research and concludes that humanity is being guided into a technological singularity for alien purposes.
We have friends and foes. As author William Bramley concluded in his book, “The Gods of Eden,” there appears to be two distinct ET forces affecting humanity, one of whom is benevolent and has our best interest and spiritual evolution at heart, and the other that loathes humanity and are using us as a tool to produce paraphysical interdimensional technologies for their own purposes, with no regard for the welfare of humanity.

Bio for Russ Brinegar, author of “Overlords of the Singularity: The Manipulation of Humankind by Hidden UFO Intelligences and the Quest for Transcendence”.
Russ was born in 1955 and spent his childhood in Titusville, Florida, on the “Space Coast.” In 1966, he and his father watched the first episode of the original “Star Trek” together, and has maintained an appreciation for good science fiction ever since. As a teenager, Russ enjoyed watching the Apollo/Saturn 5 rocket launches to the Moon from a distance of about 5 miles across the Indian River. At the age of 17, he joined the U.S. Army in the 101st Airborne infantry at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, as a gunner on an 81 mm mortar crew. He left the Army early after 2 years on a “Chapter 5 Expeditious Discharge,” i.e., “inability to adjust to military service,” and has been an activist against the Military-Industrial Complex ever since. Following the Army, Russ returned to Bloomington, Indiana, to live near his family who had moved back to their original home in Indiana while he was in the Army. As a young adult in Indiana, Russ went into sales. He had a successful sales career but always yearned to interact with humanity on a higher level than just selling them material commodities.
So, at the age of 37, Russ attended college as a “non-traditional student” and earned a Bachelors Degree in Occupational Therapy. Russ graduated with a special Honors Degree from I.U.P.U.I. in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the age of 42. As an OTR (Occupational Therapist Registered), he is involved with assisting the restoration of independence in clients who have lost their daily function due to accident, illness, or old age. His goal upon graduation was to work with the elderly in long-term care settings for 20 years and retire, which he succeeded in doing in 2017 at the age of 62. As of 2019, he continues to work one day per week after retirement, because he enjoys his profession, as well as keeping in touch with his residents and coworkers.
For the first 54 years of his life, Russ was a “material reductionist,” a “hard science guy.” He had always accepted the popular scientific paradigm that consciousness is merely an epiphenomenon of
the brain that must have developed as a survival mechanism in the course of natural, Darwinian evolution. As a material reductionist, Russ believed that when the brain dies, every part of a person
dies with it into an eternity of unconsciousness. However, on August 18, 2009, while home for lunch and mowing his grass, he had a near-fatal heart attack, along with a near-death experience (NDE) that revealed to him the underlying, multidimensional nature of the universe, and the reality of life after death. Since his NDE, Russ has diligently pursued research into all aspects of the paranormal, including ghosts, cryptids, and UFOs, in an attempt to understand exactly what happened to him that day. In the course of his research, he also discovered lost chapters to human civilization that existed prior to 12,920 years ago. Russ has come to some controversial and shocking conclusions about Earth’s UFO phenomena that he elaborated in his 2016 book, “Overlords of the Singularity: The Manipulation of Humankind by Hidden UFO Intelligences and the Quest for Transcendence.”
Russ has since appeared multiple times on many radio shows including Aquarius Radio with Dr. Sasha Lessin and wife Janet Lessin, MUFON Radio host Lorien Fenton, Wendy’s Café, Mel Fabregas with VERITAS RADIO, and others. He gave his first live presentation about NDEs, UFOs, and the paranormal at the Stargate to the Cosmos event on October 25-28, 2018, and is looking forward to
future presentations. He is also eager and appreciative to meet other paranormal researchers and/or experiencers in the UFO field.
For most of the presidency of Barack Obama, a contingent of fringe dwellers has challenged his legitimacy to serve due to wholly unfounded accusations that he was not born in the United States. One of the most prominent and vocal of those critics was Donald Trump, who joined the nut cases demanding Obama’s birth certificate and then refused to concede that it was real when it was provided.
Trump was so obsessed with Obama’s birth status that he allegedly sent a team of investigators to Hawaii to get the goods on the phony president and proclaimed that the world “will be amazed” at what they found. Unfortunately, Trump has never disclosed the results of that investigation and has since refused to even talk about it. Amazing.
Not satisfied to stir citizenship controversies for just President Obama, Trump also raised concerns about the birth status of both Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. He even threatened to sue Cruz in a tweet saying that “If @TedCruz doesn’t clean up his act, stop cheating, & doing negative ads, I have the standing to sue him for not being a natural-born citizen.”
This backstory makes the news that Trump’s questionable birth status could sink his own presidential ambitions even more significant. Records have been unearthed from a Scottish hospital that appears to document the birth of a baby boy to Mary Anne MacLeod, Trump’s mother, on June 14, 1946, the date of Trump’s birth. Anonymous sources from the Western Isles Hospital in Stornoway, Scotland claim to have evidence of the birth and are preparing to make it available to the media.
Concurrent with those allegations is a story being researched for a book by William MacDougal, an academic from Springfield E.S. with close ties to the MacLeod family. MacDougal conducted interviews with family members, including Mary Anne’s nephew Duncan MacLeod, who confirms that she had returned to Scotland in the Spring of 1946 after a falling out with Trump’s father Fred. It was there that she discovered that she was pregnant and later gave birth at the Western Isles facility. Dr. Montgomery Scott was listed on the birth certificate as the attending physician. Dr. Scott’s former colleagues, however, refused to comment with one angrily dismissing reporter’s inquiries saying “I’m not the doctor, damn it.”
Upon hearing of the birth of his son, Fred Trump demanded that Mary Anne return to the United States and threatened to use his connections to revoke her citizenship status if she did not comply. Fearing that she might never again see her previous children with Fred, she bundled up little Donald and returned to the Trump family home in Brooklyn where the birth records of Donald were redrawn to indicate a New York delivery.
As this story unfolds it will be interesting to see how Trump responds to allegations that he suffers from the very same citizenship irregularities that he has directed at Obama and others. Will he submit to requests for his long-form birth certificate? Will his followers continue to support him? Will there be legal complaints filed?

Since it is only April 1st, it is still too soon to have authoritative answers to these questions. But as the election proceeds, Trump will encounter increasingly stiff criticism and demands for clarification. Although, he continues to refuse to provide the tax returns that he once promised to make public, so his obstinate nature may prevail as he stubbornly declines to cooperate and simply insults his critics and attempts to change the subject.
Mark Micloskey was born in Waterbury CT and after several moves now resides in Missouri. At age 17 he was heavily influenced by a chance encounter at “The Cafe’ Wha’?” in Greenwich Village where he got to “pre-discover” the legendary Jimi Hendrix as “Jimmy James and The Blue Flame”. This was 13 months before Jimi’s first U.S. LP release.
Suffering the loss of his brother in Vietnam in 1969 sealed his resolve for Peace. After returning home from his Army assignment in The Canal Zone he began his hobby of writing rock and blues songs, playing drums and building his own electric guitars. When he arrived in Missouri he noticed the town’s lack of a used record store so he opened “Mr. Vinyl’s Record Exchange” in order to “bring music to the people”.
In 1992 he participated in a group UFO sighting which spurred his interest in researching a variety of topics including Ufology, Ancient Mysteries, Spirituality/Religion, Conspiracy Theories, Secret Societies and Metaphysics.
He has written one book (“Miranda’s Shadow” – see link) about “perhaps the most abused girl in America” in which he discovers her four alternate personalities who surface to assist the host in remembering her tragic history.
He retired after 23 years of being “Mr. Vinyl” to spend time on his songs and his research.
