Presidential Chaos
American Thinker, by Chet Richards

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/12/2018 5:54:25 AM

The Oval Office is in chaos. Donald Trump is mercurial, scatter-brained, given to changing his opinion every few minutes. Talks all the time. Doesn’t listen. Is opinionated. Often wrong. He is interested only in today, not tomorrow. He lacks caution. It all adds up to a president who clearly is mentally deficient – insane even. (snip) Perhaps President Trump is the kind of genius who thrives on turmoil. If so, that explains the chaos. In my profession of physics, there have been several brilliant notables with exactly that characteristic.

It isn’t as though Trump is inexperienced running large pools of employees. It’s just that the employees are government types who are used to a different style of boss. Trump may very well be a genius and having known one or two in my life, they often are scattershot.

After 8 long years of Ms O’bama’s “leadership” we needed a bull in the china shop to put things right. To our great good fortune we got a stampede of longhorn cattle instead. Yeehaw Mr President, keep them doggies rolling, Rawhide!

I suffer from the same syndrome: Chaotic mind.

My workshop is a disaster. My studio is a stack of various books, tools, and thousands of electronic parts, 3D printers, soldering station, voltage tester, and computers and pieces of computers. I drive my poor ordered wife crazy with leaking my chaos into the rest of the house when I have a big project to get out fast.

My best friend and neighbor is a highly ordered master machinest. He and I have collaborated on projects (I make movie props, and various radio controlled and animatronics creations). When I need a part made of metal, he is ready and willing to participate. But, he can not work off of a hasty, hand-drawn sketch. He has to have a time consuming detailed engineering sketch (which I also excel at making but seldom have the time to do so). In this business, you have to work fast to get a prop out to the movie people ASAP. If I give him a less than perfect drawing, he freezes immediately and stops until every detail is spelled out. I try to first think of substitute materials other than metal and so avoid getting him involved if I can.

The result of this: My messy chaotic shop produces projects on a weekly basis. His OCD type perfectly clean and ordered shop remains idle. Interestingly, he has never produced a single original item. He always creates things other people have developed and originated.

My shop, OTH, has produced hundreds of original creations. See how that all works out?

God bless the creative, messy, chaotic genius, President Donald Trump. We desperately needed a chaotic genius!

FTA: "His career record certainly suggests he is a major creative talent – and a gutsy one at that."

Let´s see, four consecutive bankruptcies, failed ventures into gaming, food, alcohol, education, sports, airline, mortgages,...

This is a superb example of delusional thinking.

"Routine minds are repelled by the kind of turbulence that surrounds Donald Trump."

They are not only repelled by it, they are terrified of it. They don´t understand it and they cannot conceive of HOW it could possibly yield solutions. The routine mind is only interested in solutions that they know will work. The creative mind considers all possibilities, most of which are failures. But only by culling through ALL possibilities will you find better solutions. Most people are too timid to face risk and failure to find better opportunities.

The thing is, the US is at a time of extraordinary economic and military strength. NOW is the time to look for new solutions. Many of them are low hanging fruit because the government has become moribund due to liberal closed minded agendas and Republicans scared of their own shadows.

Trump has proved that change is possible and good. He has exposed liberal lies and the dead end that they lead to. He has shown that a little chaos is a breath of fresh air.

Of course the routine minds in Washington are terrified. They should be. Their buggy whips are outmoded and about to go extinct.

The article links to an article on the Dunning-Kruger Effect, so I read it. And this jumped out at me:

´The 1999 paper that launched the Dunning-Kruger Effect was called “Unskilled and unaware of it: how difficulties in recognizing one´s own incompetence lead to inflated self-assessments.”´

That definition screams Obama.

Chaos is not with President Trump.

Thank you #7. I can´t believe American Thinker is giving this pile of crap called words any relevance at all by wasting time and ink writing an article about it.

Every sentence written about President Trump sounds like it was written by an amateur not a professional. In fact, they may have had a contest to see who could write the worse description of him.

The reality is, chaos is what´s happening to the Democrat Media Complex and not the White House or with President Trump.
The enemies of our President are flailing and are in total melt down because Trump is winning and will continue to do so.

#4, learning from failures is far more preferable to slinking away defeated.

Trump is not a defeatist, thank God. Otherwise, his failures would not have produced the other massive successes.Winning the presidency was the first. Not exactly the work of a failure.

I think understanding Trump is easy, if you study him in the context of being a famous, successful BUSINESSman.
Throughout their careers, powerful BUSINESS persons learn to develop strategies that will give them every possible edge, advantage, and control over their competitors.
One tactic is to control the business environment if possible. One way to do this is to keep opponents on shifting sand. They can´t effectively argue or defend their ideas because they can never be 100% sure of their rivals´ viewpoint.
The problem is that POLITICIANS do not and cannot understand Trump´s tactics because they are BUSINESS tactics. They see only chaos, because THEY live in a world of alleged long-standing order which really consists of backroom deals, winks, and nods. At all costs, they want to appear cohesive, respectful and willing to compromise if necessary.
As a business person, Trump sees a swamp that needs draining because it is holding him back. Politicians see a disorganized, confused administration with a leader who chose to play on a POLITICAL field, but refuses to follow the rules of the game.
I hope before the midterms Trump brands himself as The UNpolitican. We all know he´s that, but he needs to cut to the chase about it.

Thank you, Mr. Richards. This is the first truly accurate picture of Donald Trump that I have seen out of all the attempts to define him that have been thrown out there. The people who do not understand this approach like #3 obviously does and is successful at using it, are simply not wired this way.

The IT field is a perfect example of the chaos that brought us the success we enjoy today. Early computer programmers, like myself, had no road maps to follow, we just locked ourselves in a back room and did it. Huge software packages were developed in the 70s and 80s that ran hospitals, manufacturing plants and many other types of business. Genius can be seen throughout those systems. Then the OCD people took over. The rules and rigid processes used today have taken all of the initiative out of this field and brought it down to the level of drudgery that drives today´s IT people crazy because it´s like working in shackles.

Carry on, Mr. President. Just because people don´t understand it does not mean that it´s not working.

Some field military commanders are/were like that.
Operating with sheer guts and chaos to win a battle and ultimately the war. This was George S. Patton the Germans feared him when he would appear on the battle field. That´s Donald J. Trump and his persona.
The way the government operates like slow motion trolls with promises, meetings and talking for twenty years and one man fixes it in a year and a half, think embassy in Jerusalem, they should be frightened.

You must read the whole article to understand what the author is driving at. I’ll admit, the first paragraph was contrary to the gist of the article.
I understand the chaotic way of some geniuses because I have 2 sons of above normal iQ’s. One worked for MS, for years before branching out in his own field and the other son is a professor in the English dept. Life was never boring with these two. Topics at the table ranged from the absurd to the preposterous, but there came a time when they narrowed their interests, and their language became uncomprehending and bewildering to the average Joe. In fact, the average Joe would roll their eyes, and give up talking with them. The two brothers could flit from one subject to another and leave one tired by trying to follow them.

Pres. Trump has an advantage over the average Joes! He is also an entertainer! His speeches are upbeat and encouraging. He uses down to earth language. He uses facial expressions and body language well. He always expresses the need for more improvement, because he knows we are not at the point where he wants things to be, and his non-concrete answers leave room for more definition to follow. How he remains optimistic in spite of the many bloodhounds chomping at his feet is baffling!

This author made some excellent points in how our president is the leader we definitely need at this chaotic time in history. As I see it, almost all renovation begins with some destruction in the beginning, but the work will eventually show its beauty in the finished product. We have to tear out the rot from the previous inhabitants of the WH.

I´ve heard a comparison of chaotic thinking to the behavior of a person trying to solve the puzzle of how to drop a marble into the lowest point on a bumpy board. (i.e., find the minimum potential energy) Shaking the thing lightly may miss the right answer: the marble may settle into some shallow depression. Really the best way is to tip and shake the thing thoroughly. Trump is like that. This way you find the best, stablest answer.

Allow the creative chaos to reign!
President Trump was already an accomplished businessman when he ran. He will possibly never BE a politician in the traditional way. By means of previous accomplishment, he proved he was a mover and shaker. That he is a clue collar billionaire, really hacked off the elites - how dare he? - who does he think he is? No wonder their outrage, and, not just from the unformed the left, but also from those upper echelons of RINOs, too many to count.
Accomplishments? Look at his children. Charitable? Look up that one. Saving a Republic? Piece of cake with cooperation.
With President Trump, ever the optimist, the happy warrior, if you will, the man who LOVES America and wants to lift us up in so many ways, uses the vernacular so everyone understands what he means without all the flowery doublespeak of the establishment and MSM,
Allow him to confound his enemies, the snowflakes and the Jim Acosta’s and carry on with the Crelative Chaos!!! It’s called, “WINNING!!!”

Did suburban women cost the Republicans the House of Representatives? (snip) Suburban women in modern America can live wonderfully pleasant lives without ever having to face the hard choices and difficult circumstances of past generations. Many live very comfortably with two big paychecks entering the household bank account every month. They and their husbands probably have jobs that are not subject to being shipped overseas, and get raises that mostly keep up with inflation. They have benefitted from, and thoroughly enjoyed, the “Everything Bubble” created by trillions of new dollars sloshing around in the system.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

California Gov. Jerry Brown appears to have quietly admitted President Donald Trump´s suggestion about improving California forestry was correct and is now urging state lawmakers to loosen restrictive logging regulations put in place to appease environmentalists. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing broad new changes to California’s logging rules that would allow landowners to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit as a way to thin more forests across the state," the

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

Before killing himself with a drug intended for rapid and painless animal euthanasia, Richard A. Morrisett had endured a nightmare at the University of Texas in Austin. The 57-year-old tenured professor of pharmacology and toxicology was once a rising star in the College of Pharmacy – a man regarded as a first-rate research scientist and teacher during his 21 years at the state´s flagship university. Morrisett´s research offered new insights into alcohol-related brain disorders and alcoholism – an arcane area of research among neuroscientists. Some colleagues called him “brilliant.” Morrisett´s career, however, was destroyed by a single newspaper article. Published

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes. "The first thing that drove me to this is that I have never seen anything this weird in biology. That was
