Katie Couric, former co-anchor of NBC’s “Today” show as well as anchor of “CBS Evening News,” shows how far afield the liberals in America have gone. Last week she was a guest on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” She commented on Trump supporters.
I mean, it’s really bizarre, isn’t it, when you think about how AWOL so many of these members of Congress have gotten. But I also think some of them are believing the garbage that they are being fed 24/7 on the internet, by their constituents, and they bought into this big lie. And the question is now, are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?
According to Fox News, media critic and Cornell Law School professor William A. Jacobson warns that these types of “threats of ‘deprogramming’ Trump supporters have become common among liberal journalists.”
Not to be outdone, Hillary Clinton called for all 70 million Trump supporters to be identified as “Domestic Terrorists” in a recent Washington Post op-ed (1-12-21). This is a downgrade from a “basket of deplorables.” She openly suggested Trump supporters be tracked and “surveilled,” because Trump “whipped a dangerous element of our country into a frenzy.”
No idea is so grotesquely extreme but that it is offered with straight face by an academic. Dr. Robert Asher, an evolutionary zoologist at England’s Trinity Hall and one-time contributor to Huffington Post, posited that a “parasite” has infected the brains of conservatives who voted for Trump and who supported Brexit in England. He went so far as to name the parasite as “Toxoplasma gondi” which causes severe mental disorders and behavioral problems.
What Shall We Say to These Things?
Besides the obvious fact that the left sounds much like Adolph Hitler, in spite of their continual hurling the charge of “Nazism” to those on the right, shows where the true Nazi’s are encamped– consider the following.
First, these kinds of condescending and elitist comments demonstrates that with the liberals, they believe they have won the entire war with the defeat of Donald J. Trump. Occasionally, wild-eyed comments like these are made in the halls of academia, but it is not frequent that these types of statements are doled out publicly and with regularity. The Socialistic Establishment is back in control with Biden and these types of remarks indicate that the Left does not believe it will ever swing back the other way. With an air of triumphalism of a final battle the Left now is becoming uncorked in their aggression. If there ever was an inkling of thought with these socialists that in four more years another “Trump” would be elected, it is unlikely they would freely speak about “re-education” camps for conservatives, or mental illnesses on the Right.
Second, the idea of reconciliation between the Right and Left is a chimerical idea. It is a fantasy. It always has been. The gap between these two poles is so wide that the North-South War Between the States looks small in comparison. But that was an armed conflict! you say. Indeed, it was, but the worldview between southerners and northerners in the 19th century was not as wide as it is now. And “re-education camps”—as the left now banters about—speaks of gulags and barbed wire, not reconciliation.
Third, the blaming of Trump for whipping the Right into a “frenzy” is a snobbish and ignorant view. Hillary Clinton wants to censure Trump and all of those who supported him on the grounds that he stirred the masses unnecessarily. Being “whipped into a frenzy” has nothing to do with the Biden’s threats to cancel the Second Amendment; the Open Borders policy which has already attracted huge caravans of Third World illegals on their way to crash our borders with promises of free taxpayer money; the mandates from the Left that we recognize Sodomy as a legitimate institution by law; the plans to eliminate the right to private property as dictated by “The Great Reset” of the United Nations; the robbing of the American worker to pay for those who do not work; the indoctrination of our youth by Marxism in the education system; the murder of the unborn since 1973—no. Nothing to do with that. It is all about Trump “whipping people into a frenzy.”
Fourth, these elitists, including Bill Maher and Katy Couric, fall on their own sword. If their worldview is correct, that all is matter in motion, and there is no God, then there is no such thing as rational thinking to begin with. Everything, including my brain, operates solely on a system of naturalistic causes. All is solely the result of chemical reactions and physical pressures inside one’s skull. There is therefore, no such thing as “rationality.” That being the case, perhaps it is those on the LEFT who need “re-programming.” No opinion can be right or wrong, no more than a current of electricity can be so calculated.
So, who needs re-programming? It just depends upon who is in power, doesn’t it?
American Thinkerpublished a column by Andrea Widburg (Nov. 22, 2020) which exposes a Cambridge University constituent college professor who presents a theory as to why Americans voted for Donald Trump and why Brits supported Brexit. A parasite has infected their brains, which causes severe mental disorders and behavioral problems.
The academic, Dr. Robert Asher, is an evolutionary zoologist at England’s Trinity Hall and a one-time contributor to Huffington Post. Asher suggests a parasite named Toxoplasma gondi is the cause of politically-incorrect behavior, a parasite which has long known to affect cats. Toxoplasmosis feels like a bad flu, which can cause seizures and lung problems. Behavioral problems as well result from Toxoplasma infection.
I would personally argue that one of the problems facing humanity is, is related to, um, you know, the influence of toxoplasma in, ah, cat owners, for example. One could argue why did Brexit happened or why did people in the United States elect Donald Trump? I suspect that it has very much to do with the mind-altering parasite called toxoplasma. And if you were interested in something like that, then taking a course like Evolutionary and Behavior would help you understand this truly nefarious problem. I don’t think anyone really realizes just how bad that particular problem is.
What Shall We Say to These Things?
Crazy as the professor may sound, his assumptions are the inevitable result of the worldview known as Naturalism. The assumption of Naturalism, upon which other assumptions begin and end—namely the General Theory of Evolution as well as Atheism itself--holds that all explanations of life and even thinking must ultimately make reference to materialistic causes. As atheist of yesteryear, Woolsey Teller, stated, “the brain secretes thoughts as the liver does bile.”
Delos McKown, a one-time a professor of Philosophy at Auburn University, wrote that “the more we understand our brains by ‘chemicalizing’ their functions, the more the person is ‘biologized,’ …” Everything must be seen through the prism of “biology.”
Based upon this assumption, McKown went on to question free will. He went on to note regarding How the Brain Works, that “some neuroscientists are beginning to suspect that everything that makes people human is no more than an interaction of chemicals and electricity inside the labyrinthine folds of the brain.”
If these professors are correct in their analysis of the brain, what follows?
First, there is no such thing as rationality in the materialistic worldview. How did professor Asher come to his conclusions? His brain also—not simply a Trump supporter—is a result of physical and chemical functions alone. Perhaps he hit his head on the way to the office the day he conferenced the above ideas about toxoplasma. Perhaps he slept wrong the night before and his brain malfunctioned. This caused his thinking processes to alter and ascribe to conservatives a “parasite problem.” The chemical and electrical reactions in his brain are what caused this “conclusion.”
Better yet, perhaps he himself has been infected with the dreaded toxoplasma! Toxoplasma is a mind-altering parasite, we are told. How do we know he himself, and his conclusions about conservatives, is not the result of the dreaded cat parasite? Do you have cats at home, professor Asher?
Again, the professors’ worldview of naturalism demands that all of his “thinking” is the result of “natural processes” such as chemicals squirting through the labyrinthine folds of the brain. Why trust your conclusions, Professor Asher?
Second, there is no such thing as free will, per the professors’ assumptions. If there is no free will, then there is no responsibility for thinking a certain way or voting for a specific cause or candidate. Not only so, but that would apply across the board. Professor Asher is no more responsible for his chemically-induced diagnosis of our brains than we are to have voted for Donald Trump. In reality, his “diagnosis” is not rational, nor could it be, given his assumptions. Isn’t it peculiar, that in denying God and the reality of rational thinking, atheistic professors actually cut off the ability to label their own conclusions as rational?
Third, what is the remedy to this parasite?Shall we prescribe medications to Donald Trump supporters? To Brexit supporters? Just what kind of chemicals must we pour into our bodies to alleviate this parasite? Perhaps before the next election, government will prescribe some medication before entering the voting booth.
In the end, Professor Asher cuts the legs from underneath himself. If we know, for example, that a person argues for the free market SOLELY because he is afraid of losing his money, we tend to discredit his argument as due to irrational causes. This is because when we know that an argument proceeds from an irrational source, we discredit it. According to the professor, all thought comes from an irrational source. Thought has no power. It is the result of physical and chemical pressures in your cranium. The atoms therein simply arranged themselves so that you believe in God, for instance, or in voting for Donald Trump. But atoms inside Asher’s brain have done the same thing. Therefore, we cannot trust his thoughts any more than he can trust the thoughts of a Trump supporter.
FR Pres. Richard Haas: “USMCA is NAFTA plus TPP plus a few tweaks.” – AND, Trump Hasn’t a Clue!
Quietly, without debate, one of the most dangerous attacks on American freedom and sovereignty is moving through Congress and headed to President Trump’s desk for signing,. The USMCA agreement will create a North American Union worse than the European Union. Yet there is no voice of opposition being heard. My friend Rich Loudenback has written a urgent, detailed report on this looming disaster. He shows clearly that this is not an improvement over NAFTA as claimed. In fact it contains most of the provisions of NAFTA, plus a lot more. It will be a disaster to American industry, especially for agriculture. Efforts to change some of the worst provisions have been ignored. Why do you think Nancy Pelosi has allowed it to pass the House? Please read and share with as many people as possible. This must be stopped now! Tom DeWeese
President Trump is being lied to by his trusted advisors and he is clueless about their deceit. Why is he clueless? Because he can’t possibly be supporting something that is so comprehensively bad for America and even antithetical to his wall. Perhaps he so strongly wants to believe in the USMCA, that he’s been easier to be ‘covertly convinced’ about ‘the deal.’
Lest one good American with his ear can open his eyes before this arrives on his desk, it’s a real ‘done deal.’ It appears he is ready to sign it immediately, leaving with these advisors, his trust. He will be screwed! And America will be ‘transformed’ into a different world.
Believe it or not, I have actually had a couple people tell me they think it’s possible that Trump does know the truth about the USMCA, which would make him also part of the problem. Like most devout Trumpers, I choose to believe that that’s not possible. I am all in for him, but this USMCA just doesn’t comport with his many, many incredible accomplishments and persona projecting American greatness.
Trump’s signing the USMCA will, in fact, be the biggest mistake of his presidency to date and unfortunately will probably become his enduring legacy. He will be ‘The US President That Signed Off America’ to be run by the UN/globalist community steered most largely in America by the clandesant deep state managers at the Council on Foreign Relations in lockstep with their UN/globalist comrades.
Once he signs this monstrosity of deception with all its controlling tentacles that will render our government and our Constitution feckless, President Trump doesn’t get a do-over. He was able to cancel TTP and TTIP because they were still looming bills in congress.
When he signs this as law, that’s it! It has a six year review written into it and an 18 year renewal statement. Trying to get out of it will be like England’s’ BREXIT but tougher, because a lot more money will be easily spent to hold us down since we are the globalists’ biggest threat.
One of many negative issues for the United States is cited by Christian Gomez in his article‘What’s Really in the USMCA’stating, “In the name of protecting fishes and other marine life, the United States would have to surrender its sovereignty over all of its waterways and miles of coastal oceans (including everything under, on, in, and above them) over to the jurisdiction of UN international law.”
What is particularly sickening about this horrendous climax about to befall America is that literally all the supporting conservative talking heads on TV & radio have bought into this because they believe in our great President and don’t fathom that his enthusiasm for it is the product of ingenious ‘stealth programming’ of him by others. Virtually no one has done any vetting. Worst of all, our apathetic citizenry is not present on most issues anymore and totally oblivious on this one since there has been no causations to notice for concern.
How many patriotic Americans are going to tolerate President Trump’s much vaunted USMCA once it begins being implemented by the powers of the UN globalist, once our patriots see what the USMCA really does. It will:
Since this is truly so hard to believe, then do something none of the media talking heads nor, unfortunately, none of the 348 House Democrats and Republicans who just voted ‘YEA’ for the USMCA obviously did not do: Read the damn document!
We should be livid, because they generally like to say they voted for the ‘bait’ woven into the document for them to justify their votes, like they are pearl-like gifts for dairy farmers or other special interests.
This is a national crisis and quite literally nobody is aware of it. We will morph into what will more than likely become the North American Union which will in turn become a segment of the UN run global government, ‘think New World Order.’ Again, should you have doubt, just read the document.
However, it runs for 1,809 pages — 1,572 pages for the treaty chapters, 214 pages for additional annexes, and 23 pages of side letters. Obviously, the mammoth size of the agreement should set off alarm bells that much more is involved than “free trade,” which should mean the absence of government intervention.
A much easier approach to learning all that’s in this scheme to ‘transform’ (sound familiar) America into a member state of a regional UN run government via this fine- tuned instrument of deception and guile, is to look at Christian Gomez’s spectacular expose’ of it in his article What’s Really in the USMCA? – A MUST READ!
Gomez’s genius approach to revealing the USMCA is to expose the UN’s controlling tentacles within the Trojan Horse agreement in his article and then allow you to go to his in-depth ‘USMCA Issues Index’ at the bottom of the article that features links to any of your concerns that take you directly to them in the actual agreement. You will save a lot of time and be convinced quite quickly why this is all a ruse to take utter control of our freedoms and our government rendering The United States of America null & void.
“The pact is even worse than NAFTA regarding undermining American sovereignty and self-determination, in favor of North American integration extending beyond trade to include labor and environmental policies. It is, in fact, so bad that the globalists who had lambasted Trump for renegotiating NAFTA praised him afterward,” says Gomez.
TREACHEROUS BETRAYAL BY ‘TRUSTED’ ADVISORS:
“A side-by-side comparison of the USMCA and the TPP shows extensive overlap. Virtually all of the problems inherent in the TPP are likewise contained in the USMCA, such as the erosion of national sovereignty, submission to a new global governance authority, the unrestricted movement of foreign nationals, workers’ rights to collective bargaining, and regional measures to combat climate change.” – Quote from Christian Gomez in his New American Magazine special report ‘USMCA – A TPP Redux?’
Guess who was the chief negotiator in both NAFTA and TPP?
Larry Kudlow, President Trump’s Chief Economic Advisor assures Trump that Lighthizer is the best negotiator we have and the USMCA is just what we need.
Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haas said “The USMCA looks to be the trade pact formerly known as NAFTA plus 10-20%. Hope it becomes a precedent for TPP. I suggest the US-Pacific Trade Agreement (USPTA),” Haass said on Twitter, adding, “What matters is that the US joins it; doing so would bolster our strategic position visa-vis China and our economy.” The next day, Haass again took to Twitter, where he reiterated his renewed hope of the United States rejoining TPP. Haass tweeted: “USMCA is NAFTA plus TPP plus a few tweaks.”
The USMCA — the NAFTA replacement — represents the next globalist step toward the economic integration of the United States, Mexico, and Canada into an EU-style North American Union.
Oh, and they said NAFTA would boost our trade in large numbers and add at least 177,000 new jobs. Yet, after having had a trade surplus for years, we immediately went to a $15.8 billion deficit the first year and it has increased every year since and we LOST at least 700,000 jobs stated Robert E. Lighthizer in his remarks on a NAFTA renegotiation, Aug. 16, 2018
Now VP Mike Pence’s office states, “The U.S. International Trade Commission says that within five years, the USMCA could add up to $235 billion in new economic growth and 589,000 jobs to the U.S. economy.
Yet, The United States International Trade Commission website usitc.gov, their article ‘USITC Releases Report Concerning the Likely Impact of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA)’ those claims differ markedly: “The Commission’s model estimates that USMCA would raise U.S. real GDP by $68.2 billion (0.35 percent) and U.S. employment by 176,000 jobs (0.12 percent). The model estimates that USMCA would likely have a positive impact on U.S. trade, both with USMCA partners and with the rest of the world. U.S. exports to Canada and Mexico would increase by $19.1 billion (5.9 percent) and $14.2 billion (6.7 percent), respectively. U.S. imports from Canada and Mexico would increase by $19.1 billion (4.8 percent) and $12.4 billion (3.8 percent), respectively.“ ??? Right.
The late, Professor Robert A Pastor, one of the leading architects of the European Union wrote in Foreign Affairs, the journal of the Council on Foreign Relations:“NAFTA was merely the first draft of an economic constitution for North America.”
OUT OF NOWHERE, THE USMCA PUSH HAS STRANGE BEDFELLOW: NANCY PELOSI
Making the strongest of statements on how bad this monstrosity must be, the person that would do about anything to hurt Trump, Nancy Pelosi, all of a sudden is pushing for its passage, in fact, its reported that after having a lot of new Progressive stuff inserted into it at the last minute, she is even now trying to take credit for the bill and its passage. That is all most true Constitutional conservatives should need to hear to ‘catch on.’
If this passes by the Senate and Trump eagerly signing it, there is NO second chance! Trump was able to cancel the TPP/TTIP on the 3rd day of his Presidency because it was still just a bill in progress. Once he signs this giant win for the globalists it would take Congress and Trump to repeal it. Good luck with betting on Congress. This could be tougher to accomplish than BREXIT in England, given the kind of money that would be available for our sorry LOBBYI$T loving legislators and see how frustratingly BREXIT has been going, going and going. It’s possible that spirited American patriots may be more inclined toward civil war than putting up with absolute control by unelected, unaccountable, global elitists who know what’s best about everything for everybody in a Socialist world.
We have almost no time left to wake up Senators and especially President Trump.
I really want to believe in President Trump enough to think he would nuke this masterpiece of sovereignty destroying, evil deception as soon as he recognizes the truths about it.
If we could only find one person who has his ear to open his eyes. In the meantime all we can do is all we can do. Please spread the word and make phone calls ASAP.
Mitch McConnell has said that he won’t bring this up till after impeachment trials in January. But then, he could bring it up tomorrow. I do not trust Mitch McConnell!

There was a huge development in the world of politics this week. And it wasn’t impeachment. Boris Johnson, a clone of President Donald Trump, and his Conservative Party, the Republicans of Britain, won in a landslide of epic proportions.
This is our canary in the coal mine. It’s a surefire preview of what’s to come in America next November.
I’ve been busy predicting a Johnson landslide in the United Kingdom on my national radio and TV shows for weeks. How did I know? Because U.K. liberals are clones of the loony, radical, America-hating socialists dominating the Democratic Party in the United States.
Britain often represents a look ahead to America’s future. Back in 1979, Margaret Thatcher was elected British prime minister. Next came Ronald Reagan in the United States. Back in 2016, Brexit passed against all odds. Then came Trump’s huge upset. Now conservatives have won a stunning landslide in the United Kingdom. Next up is Trump’s reelection.
Trump campaigned on a simple message to middle-class Americans: “Make America Great Again.” Johnson campaigned on a simple message aimed at the U.K. middle class: “Get Brexit Done.” And, of course, Johnson is known for his wild, Trump-like personality and his penchant for saying offensive things. Obviously, it works — even an ocean away.
But the real lesson is that middle-class people don’t want socialism or big government. Look at what Jeremy Corbyn and his Labour Party were trying to sell to the British people. See if it sounds familiar: the largest government expansion in history, with spending increases of more than 80 billion pounds annually; the demonization of the rich; the nationalization of water, the railroad, buses, mail and broadband companies — because, of course, government can do it better than the private sector; dramatically higher corporate taxes; and dramatically higher oil and gas taxes.
Other parts of the platform included much higher spending on the country’s failing government-run health care system; a new tax on the superrich; higher inheritance taxes; a new tax on second homes; a new financial transactions tax on stock trading; open borders; promises of free stuff for everyone — free broadband internet, free shelter for the homeless; forcing landlords to sell homes to tenants at a “fair” price determined by government; massive spending on a U.K. version of the Green New Deal to combat climate change; and an end to Brexit — even though this is what the people voted for.
One more thing radical leftist Labour members had in common with today’s Democrats: The Hollywood actors and elitist intellectuals of the United Kingdom all supported Labour and called conservative voters dumb and racist.
Not surprisingly, the British people destroyed Labour and handed Johnson a smashing victory. Working-class Brits abandoned Labour in droves. Conservatives won a key seat that Labour had held for almost 70 years. It was the biggest landslide since Thatcher in 1983. Conservatives dominate Parliament.
Europe’s newspapers called it “an earthquake.” Britain’s currency, the pound, hit the highest level since May 2018 because investors celebrated the Trump-like future of the U.K. economy.
Just like in America, U.K. liberals and young people on social media are in shock — disgusted, angry and frothing at the mouth.
Trust me, it’s all about to happen in the United States. The American people despise what Democrats are offering. A Trump landslide is coming.
