USA: Insurrection at the Capitol a warning that American democracy is under siege

 By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

They traveled from 36 states, the District of Columbia and even Canada, the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol on January 6, causing five deaths and traumatizing the nation. They represented “nearly every facet of American society: lawyers, local lawmakers, real estate agents, law enforcement officers, military veterans, construction workers, hair stylists and nurses,” The Washington Post reported.

They were “devout Christians who highlighted Bible verses, adherents of the QAnon conspiracy theory and members of documented hate groups, including white nationalist organizations and militant right-wing organizations, such as the Proud Boys.” They were, a Post headline said, “A raging collection of grievances and disillusionment.”        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

BUSINESS: Visualizing The Top 50 Most Valuable Global Brands – Visual Capitalist

Visualizing the Top 50 Most Valuable Global Brands

For many brands, it has been a devastating year to say the least.

Over half of the most valuable global brands have experienced a decline in brand value, a measure that takes financial projections, brand roles in purchase decisions, and strengths against competitors into consideration. But where some have faltered, others have asserted their dominance and stepped up for their customers like never before.        Continue reading

USA Politics: Why The Democrats Should Not Impeach Donald Trump – Simon Jenkins | The Guardian

The wiser move would be to let Trump drift into exile, not stoke the sense of grievance among his base

There is a good reason for America’s Congress to humiliate Donald Trump this week, just days from his end of term. His incitement of violence against the Capitol merits his instant removal, as it does the alternative of impeachment. It would be a signal to the world that America is ashamed of this man and sees him as a mistake, a blip, a passing nightmare. The world should sigh with relief.

BEYOND THAT, ALL REASONS FOR REMOVING TRUMP ARE BAD ONES. They would deflect attention from Joe Biden’s victory and transition into office. And they would run a bigger risk.            Continue reading

US Politics: America’s slide into autocracy halted by two African Americans

By MOHAMED HAMALUDIN

When the history of this period in the life of the United States of America is written, let it be recorded that it was two African Americans who saved democracy and enabled the process of disinfecting its politics.

The process started when 80-year-old Democratic Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina endorsed the failing candidacy of Joe Biden in April, three days before the state’s presidential primary, injecting into his campaign a life-saving shot of political adrenalin. “I am fearful for the future of this country,” Clyburn said at the time. “I’m fearful for my daughters and their future and their children and their children’s future.”      Continue reading
