There are stories that I post to Facebook or Tweet each day. There is no real pattern except they are of interest for one reason or another.

Think of it as using libertyPell to curate and select what you see. A bit old school but that is how people used newspaper editors for centuries.

Mike "Axios" Allen, generally viewed as a pretty clever observer of politics, lists 37 possible candidates for the D presidential nomination in 2020. I will spare you the names because about half should be gone soon.

He fundamentally transformed political polling and financing and perfected virulent campaigns that toppled liberal incumbents.

“The most overwhelming fact of politics is what people do not know,” he told the college students in Prague. “In politics, it’s what you perceive to be true that’s true, not truth. If I tell you one thing is true, you will believe the second thing is true. A good politician will tell you a few things that are true before he will tell you a few things that are untrue, because you will then believe all the things he has said, true and untrue.”

Here is what I found out about provoking a narcissist. Do you think Steve Bannon might be better at it? He might even know what works on him.

5 Sure-fire ways to provoke a narcissist
Narcissists become unhinged when their hot-buttons are pushed. By continually bringing the narcissist back to reality by repeatedly 'stinging' him on his sore-places is both a community service and a source of amusement.

Here we have 5 sure-fire ways of putting a narcissist in his place.

1. If you are able to contradict him, do so and do it publically and support your contradiction or disagreement with facts. The effect will be the same as a blow to his head with a sledgehammer.

2. ALL narcissists fear intimacy. Try to draw the narcissist out to comment on intimate matters or highlight his obvious inability establish and maintain intimate relationships. Try something like: "I see you have been married a number of times, I guess you have a problem with women, ever thought of trying a man?" or "You have a weight problem, how are you trying to deal with that?"

3. When he talks about himself and his achievements always look bored, where possible interject and where appropriate, say in a formal meeting, ask him back to stick to the topic. Try something like: "Why are we hearing about you? The subject under discussion here is ...... so can we stick to the point please."

4. Always remind him of reality and bring him back down to earth when his sense of grandiosity gets the better of him. Try something like: "Can we please stick to the reality? I am not sure dealing with individual fantasies is advancing this discussion."

5. Make comments that directly or indirectly impinge on his self-image, omnipotence, judgement, omniscience, skills, capabilities, professional record, or even omnipresence.

Good ways to start sentences are:
"I think you overlooked ... made a mistake here ... you don't know ... do you now ... you were not here yesterday so ... you cannot ... you should ... (perceived by narcissists as a rude imposition, narcissists react very badly to restrictions placed on their freedom to live their fantasy) ... I (always remind him that you are a separate, independent entity, narcissists regard others as extensions of their selves, their internalization processes were screwed up and they did not differentiate properly) ..." You get the gist of it.

That sounds like sort of a silly question to ask about the leader of the free world who is accompanied at all times by the codes necessary to launch a nuclear attack. But does this really answer the question: how powerful is Donald Trump? Could he be less powerful than we might think?

See all of those pretty red and blue dots? I am none of them. I am relegated to the lower right quadrant: the home of those who don’t care much about social issues but worry about money, the economy, jobs, trade and debt. Embrace the emptiness. Like Detroit.
This is where you go if you spend whole days without kicking over statues or driving your car through crowds of pedestrians. If you don’t care about what the political consultants want you to be offended by, outraged about or frightened of, down to the lower right you go.
The things I worry about don’t seem to matter, but here is what does.

Please do not use this as the source of information for decisions of any importance. It might not even work for the operation of heavy machinery.
