Trump’s Asia Trip

A friend of mine just asked me if I would write my article ‘Donald Trump vs. Adolf Hitler’ still in the same way, or if I would change it now, after 9 months went into the land? I replied I would have taken it off the Internet if I thought differently now about the matter. And I pointed him first of all to this passage in the article that I believe is the most important:

Donald Trump, after all the profile studies I did about him, clearly turns out to have the profile of a social-minded business person who is able to build lasting relationships both professionally and privately, and who achieves his goals by acting by and large within the rule of law. He certainly does not have the profile of a psychopath, dictator, political tyrant or mass-murderer-in-spe. He has the profile of a showman and a smart deal-maker, also of a versatile negotiator, while his day-to-day attitude can be erratic, unpredictable, and brusk, sometimes even harsh!

Now we have of course the scandals, we have the FBI search into election meddling by the Russians, sexual harassment claims, we have his racism, which is why he does as good as nothing for Puerto Rico, we have his totally stupid and infantile behavior toward the leadership of North Korea, and so forth, wall with Mexico, travel ban, chaotic Twitter behavior, etc.

But he is still not for that matter a psychopathic mass murderer as were Hitler and Stalin, as was Mao, as was Pinochet, and so many more. And do what you will, he will also in the future to be such kind of man, for he has no psychopath profile. This is simply so, whatever the press smears around about him.

And we do not really know if he wants war with North Korea, for if you are familiar with his negotiation style, as he used it in all his business dealings, his tactics was always to get the other party down on their knees through pressure and more pressure, in order to finally negotiate from a position of strength.

Now the Asia trip will be crucial in my opinion for his entire career as a president, for his public imagine namely to go up, or to go even further down. Despite all, I believe that he will not very long endure as a president. Mueller’s Russia probe threatens very really to make an end to his political career, or he will be out as a consequence of impeachment.

He has too little support from his own people and not to forget, his foreign policy lacks predictability and consistency. Some say he has no clues at all and is just improvising in this respect. But still, Rex Tillerson is a very good man in his job, but Trump made him down in public by saying that he was ‘wasting his time’ negotiating with North Korea. Not to forget also that Trump has against him the intelligent women’s movements in America, as well as the Hispanics.

He is not politically smart, and is likely to make history as the American President with the lowest smart. Rex Tillerson called him a ‘moron’ in public. This is novelty in the entire American history, that a secretary of state called his president a ‘moron.’

And last not least: since Trump is President of the United States, he has lost 600 million USD, his fortune having gone down from an estimated 3.7 billion to only 3.1 billion because of mismanagement of his hotels and golf courses. For example in Scotland they make only losses. In addition, the population there is against the environmental impact of his golf courses. The same happened in Bali against his new hotel project there.

I think he has bad karma and this because of his almost asocial behavior toward others and his notorious narcissism. He simply has no compassion at all with people, except his nuclear family.

Donald Trump vs. Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler was a man from the small bourgeoisie in Austria, his father was a government employee. Hitler was heavily abused by his father as the Swiss psychoanalyst Dr. Alice Miller has analyzed in one of her books, and his childhood was one big trauma. Hitler was never successful in making any money, for years living as a poor artist and clochard before he got the idea to enter politics. Newer research found that Hitler was close to mental retardation with an IQ around or under 80. Hitler was a loner and never had any significant relationships, neither with men nor with women. His ‘love’ with Eva Braun was never ending in a consummated marriage as Hitler was sexually impotent.

Eva Anna Paula Hitler (née Braun; 6 February 1912–30 April 1945) was the longtime companion of Adolf Hitler and, for less than 40 hours, his wife.

Donald John Trump was born into a wealthy family, his father having been a very successful real estate developer in NYC. He was a constructive while strict personality and gave Donald a good education and the chance to get into real estate developing early in life, around the age of 10.

Donald proved to be a ‘real estate genius’ in the admiring words of his father and early succeeded in building a brand and an empire. He was unusally successful and turned out to be very sturdy psychologically when in 1989 his ventures turned into disaster and he was at the brink of bankruptcy. Yet he held through and convinced the banks to give him another chance which they did, trusting his hard-working mentality, his word, and also, admittedly, his brilliant showmanship.

From that time on, nothing could stop Trump to become a world-famous billionaire who set buildings, towers and golf courses in the world that have gained the appreciation of other developers, the rich elite, comments from designers of renown, and the world at large.

I have read all of Trump’s books, and more importantly, the books written by George H. Ross, Esq., his long-term lawyer and friend, who was able to put some sort of objective focus on him, while not hiding his admiration for his smart in developing real estate.

Trump was depicted by Ross as a ‘master of the deal’ and more importantly, a deal maker, not a deal breaker. What does that mean? It means first of all that when Trump makes a deal, as hard as he can be on the conditions, he will stick to it and stay behind it, and carry it through. He has gained an aura of respectability in this quality of his, not only in the flashy NYC real estate world but also around the world and regions that many other Western real estate developers know little about, such as the Middle East and Russia.

And I repeat myself when stating once again that today business principles reign politics more than any time before in human history, except perhaps the governance of ancient Rome and ancient Venice. In all our major conflicts in the world, there were no solutions for decades, think only of the Israel-Palestine conflict. And why? Because there were no politicians involved both locally and internationally who have a track-record as deal-makers and who are master negotiators as are Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Donald Trump, after all the profile studies I did about him, clearly turns out to have the profile of a social-minded business person who is able to build lasting relationships both professionally and privately, and who achieves his goals by acting by and large within the rule of law. He certainly does not have the profile of a psychopath, dictator, political tyrant or mass-murderer-in-spe. He has the profile of a showman and a smart deal-maker, also of a versatile negotiator, while his day-to-day attitude can be erratic, unpredictable, and brusk, sometimes even harsh!

I have studied fascism over many years starting in the 1980s, in the framework of my studies of international relations and politics. Fascist leaders all come from the little bourgeoisie and all of them were poor when they were young. Include here Mussolini, Franco, Mao Tse Tung, Stalin, Pinochet, Bokassa, or any of the more recent vintage exemplars of the same stature. They were and are all bad in business, unable to negotiate because of their faulty personalities and their overly narcissistic egos, but also unable to build anything of value such a business empire. And they have poor social lives, unable to build valuable long-terms relations with people in all fields of life.

What is more, they had all bad intimacy relations and were not fully sexually potent with women, while Trump has a track record here that is flawless as a sexually healthy and active heterosexual man who has a strong attraction for the other sex, but is also actively desired by the other sex. In the words of his wife Melania:

— Many women come here to present their profile and services, and hope to get filed as service providers. What they more want from my husband I don’t know, but it’s a fact that they are lining up for it. (Quoted from memory).

By the way, sexology and neuroscience fully affirm today that men who are fully sexually engaged with women, and who attract women in turn, have a low violence potential. See the research on the roots of violence conducted by authorities such as Dr. James W. Prescott, Ashley Montagu, Bowlby, and already back in the 1930s, Dr. Wilhelm Reich.

This being said, I have never heard of a billionaire, sexually straight and respectfully raised by a caring father who suddenly turned into a psychopath and holocaust organizer. It’s not part of human history, because it’s not part of human psychology! And journalists who put up such comparisons only show what poor journalism they have learnt and that, besides, they have no idea of human psychology, nor of human history!

When people, especially and notoriously in America, even when they are journalists, equate Hitler and Trump, they are simply ignorant about the roots and structure of fascism, and the mental setup and personality profile of fascist rulers since time immemorial.

What I was exposing here are psychological facts, not in any way a ‘political’ opinion. Modern journalism is pretty much unbridled guesswork more than anything these days, and has little psychological understanding for the realities of leaders, good or bad.

I fully agree with your perception that the media engage in what may be called a negative obsession with Trump that has reached colossal dimensions. But as I know Trump, he will turn all of this to his favor, as he always used to say that negative publicity is better than no publicity at all. And he is not the originator of that saying of course, for it’s a truth that keeps all of the best public relation firms around the globe prospering and alive!

Respecting Syria’s Sovereignty

Fact is that the highest military officer of the United States has pronounced himself clearly against Clinton’s idea of a no-fly zone over Syria which she said she would immediately enact after being president, while back in 2013 she has said about the same idea:
—A no-fly zone over Syria would mean the death of uncountable Syrians.

It is not the first time that Clinton changed her opinions so drastically, for as we all know, her husband did the same.

So Trump has just repeated what this high military officer said which in summary is:
—A no-fly zone over Syria implicitly compels the Russians to back off in Syria for protecting the Assad regime. This would clearly be a cause of WW3.

If we follow what Putin said over the last 2 years or so, this is absolutely correct and realistic as an assessment.

Also see that President Obama voiced criticism at Clinton and a no-fly zone fully identifying with the statement of the military commander as a realistic assessment of today’s political reality.

As always, the solution is easy but it’s habitual thinking, ingrained habits and grandiloquous strategies that prevent easy solution from manifesting in political life around the globe.

The United States and Nato need to declare a change of strategy in Syria to make a compromise with Russia that will have positive consequences for all parties involved. They have to back down with the intention to oust the Assad regime. That’s the only and quite easy-to-do concession they have to make in order to gain Russia’s collaboration, and it’s so much the more appealing to me as it is in full conformity with international law. Why?

To oust a regime or a sovereign state is always critical under Article II, 2 United Nations Charter for it represents an interference in the internal affairs of a foreign sovereign state. Humanitarian considerations are on a different plane, they are not under presently valid international law a cause for ousting a regime without violating the basic foundation of international law which is the principle of sovereignty.

I have clearly stated in my books that sovereignty is an outdated and peace-impeaching paradigm but it is unfortunately still our current world order.

So as this is still the basic principle of international law, Nato was from the start wrong with the idea of ousting the Assad regime and Russia was from the start right in wanting to not interfere—but they are of course not right in terms of the humanitarian agenda when it goes to practically defend that regime. Here is where Putin, too, overstepped the line.

Thus, as both parties could admit their mistakes, a basic line of cooperation is to make out on which Trump and Putin could agree. And honestly, my intuition tells me they WILL agree on that if against all the odds Trump is elected.

Where are Trump’s Trumps?

Where is the Great Dictator now, after having put dirt on all and everybody, after having tweeted everybody to hell, after having told Europe it’s in a mess with crime all over and a chaos, after having told Mexico to prepare for a big wall to look at and the Pope that a Trump doesn’t take criticism even from the highest religious authority, after having threatened Clinton and many others with law suits?

Where is the Great Poker Player now, and where are his trumps? He was always so brilliant in business and now needs to compliment Vladimir Putin to be a ‘great leader’ to gain some respect from abroad?

Where is the Great Military Leader now who said that ISIS is a problem for school boys for ‘I will bomb the hell out of them and that will solve the problem once for all.’

Where is the Great Peace Maker who admittedly is a great negotiator in business deals, and who recently voiced ‘why should we refrain from using nukes’ to make an end to ISIS? I can’t see the reason.’

Where is the Great Rhetoric who tells Obama that he has no charisma while Obama according to thousands of experts in public speaking around the world has been said to be one of the most gifted public speakers in all of human history? And this brilliance is impossible without having charisma! (I am sure that even Hillary Clinton will agree with this statement).

Where is the Great Statesman who wants to lead America into new peace and prosperity, and not just that, into ‘Making America Great Again?’ Who can say that America is *not* great now? And why? What about seeing this simply as ‘fabricated truth’ or ‘fabricated consent’ in the sense this term was coined by Noam Chomsky?

Where is the Great Winner who said in all his books ‘never give up’ and now begins to see reality, saying, he can ‘after all’ lose the campaign without tears, going back to his ‘good life’ with a ‘good family’ and play ‘good golf’ after such an after all very stressful outpost of his usual business activity.

Ever thought, Mr. Trump, that your predictable defeat in the national elections will have some serious repercussions upon your business?
