US POLITICS: Capitol attack seen as precursor of more violence for years to come – Opinion

Capitol attacked by Trump supporters

By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

U.S. President Joe Biden pledged long before he took the oath of office Wednesday to strive to bridge the current bitter political divide.  “This is the time to heal in America,” he said.

Biden can achieve some success but the threat of violence is will hang over his administration. The sheer variety of names and symbols at the Jan. 6 insurrection boggles the mind: QAnon, American flags with the stars replaced by the Roman numeral III, Pepe the Frog masks, the Crusader cross, MAGA gear including a flag portraying Donald Trump as Rambo, as riding a Tyrannosaurus rex, and the “Zombie Outbreak Response Team, The New York Times reported.    Continue reading

US POLITICS: President Biden’s Inaugural speech 2021 (according to me) – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

President-Elect Joe Biden

It is Wednesday January 20, 2021. President Joe Biden has just taken the oath of office.

He sees the thousands of guards milling around in Pennsylvania Avenue, and the tall fences. It is so different from the last time he was there with Mr. Obama. President Biden looks at his family, and the guests. The choppy blades of a helicopter could be heard faintly in the distance. The President takes a sip of water, clears his throat, and begins his inaugural speech.

On January 6, 2021 the California Congresswoman, Jackie Speier thought back to a traumatic November day, as she and her colleagues in the United States (U.S.) Capitol hid in a safe location, after the Rotunda was breached and tear gas filled the air.

“More than 40 years ago, as I lay bleeding from five gunshot wounds on an airstrip in the Guyanese jungle not knowing if I would live or die, I swore that if I did survive, I would dedicate my life to public service. I thought of that moment today when the U.S. Capitol was stormed by a mob of Trump rioters emboldened by the President fomenting a coup d’état,” she wrote in a social media post.      Continue reading

The deadly attempted insurrection which occurred in Washington, DC, in the United States of America on January 6, 2021, will be a talking point for weeks and months to come.

For many Guyanese who are “America watchers” it was not really unexpected though, bearing in mind the constant fiery rhetoric by the American president for many months – even years.        Continue reading

USA: The Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control

BOOK REVIEW by H. Steven Moffic, MD | Psychiatric Times – January 2020

THE CULT OF TRUMP 

It is a new year, an election year, with impeachment looming and the Iranian conflict – funnily enough, this book is not about the President of the United States. IT IS ALL ABOUT CULTS. 

The cover of The Cult of Trump: A Leading Cult Expert Explains How the President Uses Mind Control, sets the mood with President Trump’s last name as well as the ubiquitous red baseball hat worn by his supporters, embossed with the word “cult” in the center. Some psychiatrists may wonder if this book is breaking the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) “Goldwater Rule” (GR). Rest assured; it is not.        Continue reading
