Democrats of all stripes have been projecting their transgressions onto everyone they can in keeping with the adage, “The best defense is a good offense.” So Democrats level accusations against everyone who won’t lay down and be a floor mat for them.

Intellectually, America knows Hillary Clinton carried out a transaction with Russia, through a Canadian company, that gave Russia access to 20 percent of America’s uranium stores (a strategic material). We also know that the Clinton Foundation received an infusion of millions of dollars at precisely the same time. The Democrats pointed their bony fingers at President Trump, accusing him of collusion with Russia, which was a lie. It was Mrs. Clinton who colluded with Russia. This is an example of a clinical phenomenon known as psychological projecting.

Projecting is a simple defense mechanism commonly used in politics to distract the voting public from seeing where blame for a transgression should truly be placed. In some cases, such as with Rep. Adam Schiff and the impeachment of President Trump, the projection is made consciously and with malice. But it can also be subconscious, such as in the case of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi or Rep. Maxine Waters, who project their own transgressions onto Mr. Trump out of pure hatred.

These are only the opinions of a layman. However, today’s Democrat is a nasty creature, capable of any loathsome act that might safeguard what little power they have left. What is certain is that they have mastered the weaponizing of psychological projection.

Now, who really wants these people (nutcases, in my opinion) running this country? Not me.
