Trump’s Acceptance: Time to Face Facts!

July 24, 2016

Trump’s Acceptance: Time to Face Facts!

The facts are that if Trump accomplishes 1/2 or even 1/3 of what he promises, America may be saved from total disaster.

After eight years of traitor Obama, if clone Hillary Clinton is elected and accomplishes  even 1/5 of what she promises, America will be decimated by more and  more of the culturally lethal afflictions that we all now suffer.

America, as most adults have known it, will not survive.

When will the world learn?! 

Progressive/Liberal/Socialist politics and policies are virulent forms of self-destructive sociocultural psychopathology.

In view of the countless Americans who have sacrificed life and limb to defend our traditional America, it should not be too much to ask that all American patriots watch Trump’s entire acceptance speech.

Progressives/Liberals/socialists and their puppet media have called Trump’s speech “Dark and Negative”. They have also accused Trump of using “Scare-Tactics”.

Balderdash!  Trump is TELLING the TRUTH and SHEDDING PURE LIGHT.

Hogwash! Trump is being POSITIVE because he is telling us what we must do to avoid even more great pain and disaster in our lives.

Bull-Scat! Trump is not using “Scare-tactics”. America’s Ship of State is really foundering and he is ordering all- hands on deck, to done life-jackets and bail for our lives.

What is wrong with doing everything in our power to avoid hell-on-earth and recover our true Constitutional, sane and Great America?!

It our responsibility to take time, study these lethal issues, judge for ourselves and vote accordingly!

Finding What America Lost: It’s Greatness!

July 23, 2016

Finding What America Lost: It’s Greatness!

Most Americans know that if they lose something, the best way to find it again is to return to where they last saw it. Often, if that does not work, they retrace their steps in order to find the lost thing’s location.

The jump from this personal heuristic for solving a simple problem to a culturally complex problem is a big jump. I will grant you that.

However, when what is lost is clearly leading to the death of the greatest nation ever-on-earth and the welfare of all that we have ever loved hangs in the balance, it is damn-well worth a try!

Clearly, if America wishes to find what it has lost, it is sensible to return to where we last saw it.

America last saw its indisputable greatness when it followed our conservative Constitutional rules of conduct set forth by our Founding Fathers.

Furthermore, we saw America’s greatness when our government did not persecute our religions and their traditional moral values… the point of  “outlawing” them from our public language, expunging them from America’s public places and ridiculing them through our mass-media.

America’s upcoming Presidential Election could easily represent the point-of-no-return for America.

My beloved father once advised me to vote for a political party and not a single issue. I know that he would understand my reasons for not following his advise now, at this point in America’s profound decline.

I hope you to will now break this rule with me and also cast your ballot in favor of an essential Single Issue.

This essential issue is, literally, the very survival of our Historical America: The Greatest Nation ever to exist on Planet Earth.

World War III: Planes,Trucks, Pressure Cookers, Knives and DENIAL!

July 15, 2016

World War III: Planes, Trucks, Pressure Cookers, knives and DENIAL!

I am stunned and numbed at the blood, guts and brains smashed from adults, children and babies in Nice, France. This and hundreds of  times more (see below); while Obama and his feckless minions prattle-on about guns…Islamic terrorists kill us by the thousands with planes, trucks, pressure cookers and knives.

I am sad to say that the torrent of criminal and terrorist carnage in recent times has naturally desensitized my emotions, as they have in most others I know. It is hard for me to feel much more than revulsion and hatred for the forces of evil that perpetrate such atrocities against innocent human beings.

I recall being frequently challenged over the past years when I told people that America was already in World War III. My able, but blind, opponents in debate often used strained details of definition to counter my steadfast assertion. Most other times this statement about WW III with radical Islamic Terrorism met with little more than uneasy silence. I frankly cannot recall anyone else, except my dear wife and sadly departed son, agreeing with me…until recently.

I am a psychologist and I understand the short-term comforts of the DENIAL of threats to our psychological and physical well-being. I also understand the long-term consequences of pain and even death for individuals who over-engage in habits of self-defeating and self-destructive denial of reality.

I have learned the psychological principles that apply to individuals, also normally apply to those collectives of individuals that we call societies or nations. Individuals commonly damage or destroy themselves by denying reality and so do societies and nations as-well-as their political and economic systems.

So now…The majority of those in denial of radial Islamic Jihad are now waking-up to a horrific reality. Whether it be by peaceful means (i.e., incremental political actions to achieve Sharia Law and hegemony over non-Islamic societies); or, murderous terrorism to capture and enslave, or convert millions of “infidels”,  the whole of Western Civilization is embroiled in WW III.

Trapped by their self-destructive over-use of denial, Europe itself will now be forced to engage in horrific actions in an attempt to save their own civilizations from Radical Islam.

This specter is almost incomprehensible! Europe has foolishly flooded itself with with hordes of Islamic’s intent upon destroying them and now Europe may be beyond salvation.

So, America…Now it is your turn!

What will you do?!

The upcoming American Presidential Election will determine the fate of not only America, but all of Western Civilization. We must not only save ourselves from the scourge of Islamic Terrorism, but  we must also help Europe save itself or the terrorists will have another home-base from which to attack us.

America, you had better elect a smart, kick-ass, blood and guts, take-no-prisoners President because you are now deeply into WW III.

If you vote, or fail to vote, in any way that leads to the election of Obama’s Hillary, you had better learn to abide by Sharia law.

Below is your reality: America, Wake-The-Hell-Up! You are in the midst of WW III!

Allen West: Democrat’s Subjugation of Blacks

Allen West: Democrat’s Subjugation of Blacks

I hope you will read the following article and send it to everyone you know.

This is one of the best explanations I have read, detailing the ways in which the Democratic Party has destroyed a once largely pro-social and adaptive black culture within America.

It is a great American tragedy that in recent history progressive/radical liberal democrats have continued to enslave so many blacks to a cycle of poverty and governmental dependency.  The democrats have thereby conscripted  the black vote in order to stay in power and further their increasingly radical progressive/socialist agenda.

The story that Allen West tells about all of this is a profound disgrace within American politics.

I thank patriot Joe Grunert for sending this article to me.

Voting Hillary Clinton an Act of Treason # 2

Voting Hillary Clinton an Act of Treason # 2

The title of the following video is “Watch Trey Gowdy Destroy FBI Director Comey’s Stance in Minutes.

The title should be “Watch Trey Gowdy Destroy Hillary Clinton’s reputation, in Minutes!”.

Mr. Gowdy skillfully demonstrates, over and over again, Clinton’s deeply ingrained lying and deceitful personality. In doing so he displays her truly deserved humiliation and dishonor.

Hillary Clinton is profoundly unqualified to be President of the United States because she lacks integrity and trustworthiness.

Please watch this stunning video and send it to everyone you know.

Voting Hillary Clinton An Act of Treason #1

July 7, 2016

Voting Hillary Clinton An Act of Treason #1

I am not mincing any words. Hillary and Bill Clinton are scurrilous, lying dishonorable people. America is about to die.

Voting Hillary into the Presidency will be a vote against America’s Constitution, against truth in government, against traditional American values and for Obama’s continued radical liberal transformation of America to socialism.

A vote for Hillary is a vote for the continuation of Bill Clinton’s shameful conduct in the oval office and elsewhere and it is a vote for Hillary’s own proven legacy of lies, lies and more lies in the face of obvious truths.

Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton  are the embodiment of the age-old radical liberal/socialist tradition of telling lies over and over and over again…until the stupid, ill-informed or loyal crooked ideologues “parrot” the lies.

At this late point in America’s cultural decline there are enough lying, cheating, traitorous voters to make Hillary a real threat for America’s Presidency: Everything hangs in the balance.

“Treason” may be defined as: A violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or state, i.e., disloyalty or treachery to one’s country or government.

I am forced to say that Any Candidate who has the promise of enacting traditional pro-American laws and initiatives is by light-years superior to lying, cheating Hillary Clinton.

Yes, this includes Donald Trump!

Please watch the following video and send it, along with my words to everyone you know.

The Psychology of A Broken Q-Tip

July 5, 2016

The Psychology of A Broken Q-Tip

On July 4, 2016 we placed some of our deceased son’s ashes under an oval head-stone at his favorite place on our wooded family property in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  We chose the place where he and his children and friends (other family members too) l0ved to sit by the fire at night, listen to music, look at the bright stars and enjoy the woods and each other.

Many of our extended family, including his three precious teenage children, had a little service there with prayers. It was a sad, but deeply grateful celebration of our wonderful son, father and friend to many.

His stone is adorned with his name, Sean Mawhinney, and his favorite saying: “It’s All Good”.  There is a dancing bear one one  corner of the stone and a block lettered N.D. on the other corner. These signifying his favorite musical groups (The Grateful Dead) and his beloved football team, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Some time ago, I wrote the following remembrance about our early years of parenting Sean, who was then just a toddler. It is a story about the psychology of love and a minor trauma…transformed by events in time into a precious and instructive sweet memory.

I hope you will enjoy it and learn something useful.


As many people do, when we use Q-Tips we have disguarded them in a little trash basket  in our bathroom.

Again, I am reminded of our dear son,  Sean, who died suddenly at 46 yrs. of age.

When Sean was an adventuresome little toddler he entered our bathroom, “fished” a Q-Tip from the trash, put it in his ear and then slipped and fell puncturing his ear drum. I was caring for him alone at the time and was greatly horrified by this event. He cried so hard and there was blood coming from his ear. With a Doctor’s care, his ear drum healed with little consequence.

However, I never forgot the sights, sounds, and my upset from that event.

Now, for the Psychology of A Broken Q-Tip!

Sean’s putting the Q-tip in his ear, was and example of normal imitative behavior.  He had often observed Mom and Dad doing the same thing (contrary to published warnings; just as millions of people regularly do). He simply did what he saw us do.

Imitation is a massively important form of social learning in all developing children and adults. A great deal of what we all learn throughout our lives is based upon numerous psychological principles of modeling and imitation.

After this happened I compulsively broke the Q-Tips I used in-half before disposing of them. This may seem odd, but right after the accident, breaking them in-half made another such accident less likely. As a consequence, doing this relived me of the anxiety that I felt about disposing them whole, as I once did.

Technically speaking, breaking the Q-Tip allowed my escape of an aversive condition, commonly known as anxiety.  Psychologists call this a contingency of negative reinforcement. In other-words, if someone does something that removes, or reduces anxiety, this consequence can reinforce the particular behavior pattern that reduced the anxiety. Therefore, that behavior is more likely to happen again in the future.

I will digress briefly.

While, my own peculiar actions towards Q-Tips have remained focused exclusively upon them, sometimes actions that reduce fear or anxiety can begin to morph into many different shapes, forms and applications.

For many Individuals who have suffered chronic trauma and anxiety states, the following two psychological principles can create a bewildering array of different, but related, emotional and behavioral problems.

Many other stimuli not directly associated with trauma can simultaneously acquire aversive properties through the psychological principle of Stimulus Generalization (i.e., similar responding to similar, but different, stimuli). Individuals may begin to fear and escape, or avoid, harmless situations that only slightly resemble those associated with the stimulus conditions involved within the original traumatic learning experience. For example, a child bitten by a dog may come to fear cats; or,  a woman abused by a man may feel anxiety around all men, etc..

Also, Response Generalization can occur when the reinforcing effects of anxiety reduction produced by the original behavior spread to other responses that have some similarity. For example, people may come to use a variety of ways to escape  or avoid anxiety-evoking circumstances, such as making excuses to leave a situation, acting ill to avoid an event, or consuming inebriates in order to relax, etc..

Also, just so you know, these principles can apply to the learning of more positive stimuli and actions.

But now, back to the Psychology of A Broken Q-Tip!

As you now know, my breaking the Q-tips, is an example of a behavior pattern that avoids a future aversive event (i.e., it reduces the probability of my little boy harming himself with a Q-Tip in the future).  Psychologist have demonstrated that avoidance behavior is very common in all animals, and especially among us human animals.

You now know why I started to break Q-Tips in half, about 44 years ago.

But the question remains, why am I now still breaking Q-Tips!?

What could account for the fact that, after over four decades since that  traumatic event,  I still break each and every Q-Tip I use in-half before discarding them?

Some might consider this behavior pattern to be a form of psychopathology named Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. But for a behavior or emotional condition to be called a “disorder”, it must significantly interfere with effectively managing the normal demands of life, or it must hurt ones-self or others. You can be sure that my behavior is idiosyncratic, but I’m happy to say that it cannot be classified as a psychological disorder.

Someone could label my “aggression against Q-Tips” anyway we want. But, they would still have some trouble explaining why I am still breaking my used Q-Tips after all of this time. To the observer, the behavior now makes no sense because the real trauma and danger has been gone for over 40 years!

Of we could call it a habit, but this explains very little.

The best explanation  of what I, personally, am doing to Q-Tips can only be found in something that I will call Behavioral Introspection. By this, I mean a personal unobservable (thoughts, perceptions and emotions) accounts of how some behavior pattern has come to  start, continue, or change according to well-researched and well-documented elementary principles of behavior. True behavioral introspection is only likely to be useful when conducted, or interpreted, by an individual well-versed in the science and technology of psychological behavior principles.

Among the years that have ensued since the original Q-Tip trauma, my recollections of it have been associated thousands of times with highly positively reinforcing (enjoyable) recollections of my precious times parenting, teaching, learning from and playing with my son. When very powerful reinforcing events (stimuli) are associated with a historically aversive event (or the object associated with that event), both the event, the object and my action of breaking that object can actually acquire new learned properties. These are the properties of a conditioned positive reinforcer

In simple terms, the act breaking Q-Tips, perhaps even thinking about breaking Q-Tips can now acquire rewarding properties. Additionally, a Q-Tip, under the conditions I have described, can become a discriminative stimulus; one that stimulates me to think about breaking it and actually do so.

This is about enough of the technical stuff, at least for now!

There are some wonderful words given to us at the time of our son’s passing.

I hope your increased psychological understanding combined with the stone’s artful common language will provide a deeper understanding of  even more than The Psychology of A Broken Q-Tip!

The small plaque had the following message etched upon it:

“When someone you love becomes a history of memories, th0se memories become a treasure chest”.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, Ph.D., 7/5/16

P.S., From a technical perspective, more psychological principles could be added to my little story. However, I hope that my simplified technical explanation and the example of my own “thin slice of behavior” will advance your understanding of scientific psychology to some rewarding degree.




The Suicidal Importation of Islamic’s in U.S.

July 2, 2016

The Suicidal Importation of Islamic’s to U.S.

The following documents Obama’s continued efforts to settle  one million Islamic immigrants in the U.S. before the end of his Presidency.

After the following list of Islamic settlers, their numbers and locations in America, are four  URL’s that document this seemingly frantic federal government initiative. It is important that you open and read these.

What could possibly be the motive for this continuation of governmentally-forced Islamic immigration?!

This, when around the world, and in America, a large portion of Islamic immigrants refuse to acculturate to their host nations. And when, more importantly, Islamic populations remain silent while a small, but murderous proportion of them, or their children, wantonly slaughter as many of their host citizens as they possibly can. It is well-documented that Islamic people have remained silent even when they were witness to preparations for terrorist attacks. All that I have asserted here is also well documented by the following and in many other places elsewhere.

The motive, for this governmentally forced Islamic immigration is,  in my view, what all such things always are: Political Power and Control.

Progressive/socialist/radical liberal forces have gained control of America’s Executive and judicial branches of government. The Legislative branch is a close call. In order for progressives to solidify their power and control for generations to come, they need a growing and dependent constituency. By opening our borders to a massive influx of illegal and legal immigrants who are poor and uneducated they are able to guarantee themselves a massively growing beholding and loyal voting class.

If the Obama administration can insure that a new Hillary Clinton progressive administration follows his own, she can achieve the point of no-return for this revolutionary transformation of America. Hillary, as President, will be positioned to appoint three to five progressive Supreme Court Justices. Appointment to the Supreme Court is for life. This means that they will be able “legislate from the bench” for at least two generations of Americans.

This will be the end of America as our Founding Fathers had designed it. It will be the end of our Constitutional Republic; the only one to ever exist on planet earth. It will be an end to individual liberty and the birth of the age of political tyranny in America.

Nothing lasts forever. But, we do not have to surrender America to a class of revolution that have all-to-often failed in famine and torrents of bloodshed.

I urge you to fight this chain of ruinous events with the mightiest weapon in your arsenal: YOUR VOTE!
