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!!!”
P.S. How many buildings have your name on them???

Hillary Clinton on Tuesday predicted that President Trump will "wholesale fire people" following November´s midterm elections. "After this election, this president is going to wholesale fire people," Clinton said during an interview on MSNBC´s "The Rachel Maddow Show." Predicting that Trump will "be even more uncontrollable and unaccountable" following the results, Clinton argued that the president will fire people who he believes are "undermining him" and "questioning him." "The president is close to being uncontrollable," she continued. In the wide-ranging interview, Clinton also discussed the recent controversy

Debra Katz, the attorney for the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, said that it is not her client’s job to corroborate her claims. WATCH: (Video) Katz said on CNN on Monday that investigators should be responsible for proving Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh held her down and drunkenly groped her while at a party in high school. During the interview, Katz revealed that there was another girl present at the party, which allegedly took place in 1982 while Kavanaugh was attending Georgetown Prep. Ford previously told the Washington Post

Trust a "psychologist" to wreak havoc with someone else´s family. When Christine Blasey Ford finally surfaced her over three decades-old claim of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh, when they were both teenagers, did she consider for a moment the effect of her accusation on Kavanaugh´s daughters, already escorted from the hearing room after witnessing their father being endlessly attacked by maniacs in the audience, not to mention Kavanaugh´s wife? And how about the dozen girls the judge used to coach who came to the hearing? Originally thrilled to be so honored, how do you think they and their families now

Bert and Ernie are more than just friends, according to “Sesame Street” writer Mark Saltzman. Saltzman, who joined the show in 1984, told Queerty the two puppets are a gay couple and their relationship is a reflection of his partnership with film editor Arnold Glassman. “I was Ernie. I look more Bert-ish. And [Arnold] as a film editor—if you thought of Bert with a job in the world, wouldn’t that be perfect? Bert with his paper clips and organization? And I was the jokester,” he revealed to the LGBTQ blog. “So it was the Bert and Ernie relationship,

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford will go head-to-head in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee next Monday. The hearing sets up a potential show down on Capitol Hill, the likes of which have not been seen since Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill testified in 1991 after she accused him of sexual harassment. Thomas was ultimately confirmed after a bitter and bruising battle. But the Kavanaugh-Ford hearing comes more than 25 years later, amid the #metoo movement, and when women have been energized after the election of Donald Trump as president.

The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape nearly 40 years ago, Stanford professor Christine Blasey Ford, isn´t responding to requests from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to testify about her claims. "We still haven´t heard from Dr. Ford, so do they want to have the hearing or not?" Grassley said during an interview with Salem Radio host Hugh Hewitt Tuesday morning. "We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours, three or four times by email and we have not heard from them. It kind of raises the question do they want to

Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s treatment of a more than 3-decade-old sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was unfair all around. It was unfair to Kavanaugh, unfair to his accuser and unfair to Feinstein’s colleagues — Democrats and Republicans alike — on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Feinstein, a California Democrat, took the worst possible course by waiting until almost a week after Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing was completed to ominously announce that she had turned over “information from an individual” about Kavanaugh to the FBI, and adding that she would be honoring the woman’s “strongly requested” confidentiality.

When Christine Blasey Ford finally admitted that it was she who had leveled the uncorroborated charges of sexual assault against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she was immediately asked if she would be willing to repeat her charges under oath. Her lawyer, Democratic activist Debra Katz, claimed her client was willing to testify before Congress. However, according to the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, neither Ford nor her lawyer has responded to any of several attempts to confirm that she will attend the Monday hearing that was set up so she can tell her story in Kavanaugh’s presence.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley says he has yet to hear back from Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of committing sexual and physical assault while they were both in high school.

"We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours, three or four times, by email, and we have not heard from them,”Grassley said.
