Art of the Deal ghostwriter explains terrifying reason Trump is attacking allies: ‘He’s mentally ill’

Published

Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter who actually wrote “The Art of the Deal,” said that President Donald Trump’s wild attacks on longtime American allies will likely only grow worse.

Schwartz began by saying Trump’s behavior is entirely consistent with how he’s behaved in the past when he’s let his ego destroy personal relationships with others.

“His interest is almost entirely about how he is seen or how he thinks he’s seen,” Schwartz explained. “And therefore his perspective is a very… it’s wearing blinders. All he cares about right now, particularly in light of what happened at the G7, is that he can restore in his own mind his sense of self. And what’s so fragile in Trump is his sense of self.”

Schwartz went on to say that Trump instinctively lashes out at any criticism and simply will not tolerate listening to anyone tell him he’s wrong about something.

“I’m going to say it very bluntly: He’s mentally ill,” he said. “This is a man — and I understand I’m not a psychiatrist, but he’s prima facie mentally ill. He has a personality disorder. That means on its face this is a man who is unstable, who doesn’t think clearly and has narrowed his frame by pushing out anybody who will disagree with him.”

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota interjected to point out that many White House aides come on her show to insist that Trump is in possession of all his faculties.

“Alisyn, I love you, but that’s nonsense,” Schwartz replied.

Amazon, Google and Facebook warrant antitrust scrutiny for many reasons – not just because they’re large

Published

on

There’s a growing chorus of U.S. politicians, antitrust scholars and consumer watchdogs calling for stricter antitrust treatment of Amazon, Google, Facebook and other tech giants. Some even say they should be broken up.

Most recently, U.S. lawmakers launched a sweeping review to determine if these companies have become so big and powerful that they are stifling competition and harming consumers, while federal regulators are also gearing up to take action.

Hacker used $35 computer to steal restricted NASA data

Published

A hacker used a tiny Raspberry Pi computer to infiltrate NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory network, stealing sensitive data and forcing the temporary disconnection of space-flight systems, the agency has revealed.

The April 2018 attack went undetected for nearly a year, according to an audit report issued on June 18, and an investigation is still underway to find the culprit.

A Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized device sold for about $35 that plugs into home televisions and is used mainly to teach coding to children and promote computing in developing countries.

Prior to detection, the attacker was able to exfiltrate 23 files amounting to approximately 500 megabytes of data, the report from NASA's Office of inspector General said.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
