I have been a clinical psychologist and full-time psychotherapist for over 40 years. In the past 14 years I have learned to apply the perspective and realizations that arise from the clear seeing of what is real to the problems of living.This perspective is shared on this blog and my website (www.waybeyondpsychotherapy.com).

Hail to the Chief?
I was beginning to wonder
if Donald Trump was an agent of the KGB (FSB), given his penchant to
rationalize the Russians’ successful attempt to undermine our presidential
election, his massive denial of the profusely documented Russian invasion of
the Ukraine, and his love affair with Vladimir Putin. The Russians, who are
still fighting the Cold War while we blithely pretend it is over, look for weak
leaders they can easily control. Trump fills the bill perfectly. Therefore, KGB
General and Russian leader Vladimir Putin did his best to make certain Trump
won the presidency. He succeeded beyond his wildest dreams. Putin knew Russian
spy agencies would have no ability to manage Hillary Clinton. If you were a spy
working for the FSB, who would you rather have as US president? As a Russian
intelligence agent, would you prefer someone you absolutely know from 30 years
of experience to be an extremely tough nut like our former Secretary of State,
or a loose cannon screwball know nothing like our new president? Putin has
known for a long time that all that he must do is praise Trump and he becomes
mush-putty in the hands of the master manipulators of the Russian spy service. However,
given the new revelations of the secret and explosive dossier the Russians compiled
on Trump, there is no doubt that Trump is merely a dupe, an unwitting agent of
the Russians- not an actual operative. It now appears the Russians have compiled enough damning information on Trump to insure he will continue
to comply with their foreign policy objectives.
