No, "narcissistic" is an adjective... he is a (noun) narcissist.

Behold, the awesome power of: word-thinking.

See if we can slap a label on someone, then we've reduced the dimensionality required for analysis!

It's been bizarre to witness some otherwise very smart individuals (e.g. Sam Harris) radiate utter confusion about Trump over the past four years, relentlessly framing everything Trump does through a narrow analytic lens consisting of <laundry list of negative Trump personality traits>.

So we just had one of the most insecure elections of all time followed by the most secure of all time?

Remember 9/11? Remember how just about every facet of airline security changed drastically after that? Have you noticed we haven't had any 9/11s since then? Why is it a shocker, or even slightly confusing, that when weaknesses are exposed they are addressed, and addressed aggressively. Crazy to think how those efforts actually work sometime.

Apples and ...electric dick squeegees. Because apples and oranges are both similar in that they are fruits. Those two events have almost no bearing on one another.

What the left claims was so insecure about the 2016 election was the fact that ad companies harvested Facebook users data to create psychological profiles which were used to target specific individuals that they knew might be susceptible to false or misleading political ads.

In recent times, Facebook has taken to rampant "fact-checking", censoring, and deplatforming Republican politicians and right-leaning users. So in reality... the exact same avenue is being used to exploit perceptions and manipulate voters. NOTHING has changed on that front.

What HAS changed? What IS unique this time? RECORD numbers of unsolicited ballots by mail. These ballots are handled by people who are not the voters themselves, and are not poll workers. They leave a secure setting when they are mailed out, and they leave a secure setting on the way back. This is one aspect of it that people question and have doubts about. Furthermore, what criteria they are using to VERIFY the validity of these mailed-in paper ballots are also what people question and have doubts about. (Because in some places it sounds like they are doing NOTHING AT ALL to make sure the people named on the ballots are real people or living people or US citizens, etc)

Why SHOULDN'T someone question that or have doubts? Because a website told you that election fraud is rare? Mass mailings of mail ballots in the quantities seen for this election is "rare" too... so rare that it's NEVER happened before, therefore there is no reliable historical data about such a procedure. It's really that simple. And if you read and comprehend all that and you STILL think me, Metal, Haunted, and Quadz are still a bunch of crackpot loonies... then I guess we're at an impasse.

Is Trump supposed to fire someone BEFORE they blatantly lie or AFTER?

WHY would he lie? You have to imagine some conspiracy of him being paid off secretively for him to have motivation to make something up. If Trump is trying to sell a false narrative, and this guy tells the truth, then Trump needs to get rid of him to preserve the lie. That's what happened. How is this not obvious?

Btw punk, here are the affidavits. If you try to find them through google, you will NEVER find them. If you rely on the left MSM to give them to you,  even less likely than "NEVER". I am being serious. I attempted to find them on Google yesterday. Hours and hours, no success. Duckduckgo.com it took 1 minute. Same with info on hunter Biden. You are deliberately subjecting yourself to being an information lightweight like I have previously said. You don't WANT to seek out the information. You are content with being told what to think.

I scrolled through it, but didn't read all that much of it.

I found this from a WaPo article regarding them:

Quote
“If he’s talking about affidavits he’s collected to wave in front of reporters, but that won’t be submitted in a judicial proceeding, they would not subject the swearers to a perjury prosecution.

“Given the disjunction between what is actually happening in the courts and what he is talking about,” Simon-Kerr continued, “I wouldn’t be surprised if it is the latter.”

So far, the people that need to find these affidavits worrisome (the judges), or tantamount to breaking the law, haven't seem to be alarmed yet. We'll see what happens, but my money is on it being more hot air.

Here's the WaPo article I read. It explains what what would be needed for the affidavits to be something significant, and why they're probably not:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/11/20/affidavit-giuliani-vote-fraud/

.......

I'm on page 120, have been reading them on and off. You skim for two minutes then link me to a Washington Post article from the media that SHIELDS these affidavits from me and the public, and tells me how I should feel about them without reading them? Is there any bit of individual left in you? Or are you a complete and utter slave to leftist narrative? You fucking asked metal for a source but you won't read it, ya big dummy!!

I've put a dent into the affidavits and I still won't post my final say. But I'll tell you that even by page 30 it's very fucking alarming and seems like a direct attack on our nation and our ability to vote.

I was thinking that Biden was a paper icon they had every intention of scrapping after January due to Ukraine indictments, but it appears as though those who tried to put charges forth against him were unceremoniously dismissed from office. :-\

It's funny. When Bush was prez, I thought of the Republican party as the primary "club" where corruption and under-the-table deals were the main focus before running the country. A mere 12 years later, I feel like the Democrats have begun trying to compete with the legacy of the Bush era assholes.

I'm constantly taken aback by it all, truly. And I agree, only I think there's a good chance they'll surpass those from the past.

This is shaping up to be something spectacular, whatever it may be.

All of this information should be read, but I'll point out that page 87 involves people that were trained to disrupt GOP poll challengers to get them thrown out, and even had pamphlets. This was a coordinated effort to attack our voting process.

Edit: page 108, a Democrat tries to "relieve" a Republican challenger thinking she was a Democrat. It was clear they had a motive to disrupt the process, not watch the ballots.

While we're talking about that area, page 109 and 110 reference the 7th or 8th example I've read of stacks of ballots being counted over and over again.

Also another key takeaway (there's many) is that I've probably seen 15 or so statements that included the 01-01-1900 manually entered DOB irregularity.

I stopped reading at page 123 earlier.

None of us here know what we're reading, or are you guys lawyers and didn't bother to mention? No one here knows what is legally significant.

You guys have probably read people more knowledgeable than you summarize their take on those papers.

The people writing these affidavits, Trump and co, etc., are every bit as biased and inclined to slant the narrative in a direction favorable to the outcome they want as anyone in the "leftist media".

People who echo the values that matter most to you are trying very hard to mislead and manipulate you every bit as much as you think those on the left are. It's odd that you guys seem to think you're immune to anything like that.

Let's see what comes of this in a week or two (or three - Dec 14th is the deadline for electoral votes, right?). I have a feeling that regardless of the outcome, you guys will always insist it was something profoundly unfair that transpired during this election that gave Biden the victory.
