  • Scott "Dilbert" Adams perceives the onset of Trump Act III

    Aug 24, 2016 @ 2:18 am - Maynard

    Adams has long argued that although Trump is fallible, he is not and has never been a loose canon or out of control. Adams has perceived a meticulous campaign of persuasion throughout, and this has propelled Trump to victory thus far. But now Hillary has a persuasive line too, going sharply negative on Trump, and scoring hits that have let her pull ahead. If this were a movie, Adams observes, it's time to segue from the “fun” of the second act to the “serious” third act, in which the protagonist — good-hearted but flawed — changes himself for the better, and proves himself worthy of the happy ending the audience wants. In expressing his “regret” for his past excessive rhetoric, Trump is making the dramatic pivot that the moment requires of him. Adams predicts Trump will stay true to that pivot, and this will work in Trump's favor. Adams offers an interesting way of looking at it, and not one to be casually discarded.

  • Touching the Raw Amygdala: An Analysis of Liberal Debate Tactics

    Aug 14, 2016 @ 1:31 pm - RedMoonProject

    “Anonymous Conservative” is a blog site that I have been spending a fair amount of time reading in recent days and which I would recommend to all conservatives. In this series of essays he makes the case that liberals have a radically different psychology than conservatives and that when interacting with them we need to be aware that their goals in a debate have little to do with logic or reason and everything to do with protecting their very delicate and precarious emotional state. This fact can, and should, be used against them at every opportunity and in this series of posts he shows how conservatives can learn to do just that.

  • Scott "Dilbert" Adams updates his Trump prediction

    Aug 13, 2016 @ 9:05 pm - Maynard

    Humorist Scott Adams accurately predicted Trump's rise based upon Trump's power of persuasion. He went on to predict a Trump landslide victory. In light of sinking polls, has he changed his mind? In this update, he acknowledges new factors — in particular, Hillary's new, successful tactic of mudslinging and irrational fearmongering, propelled by the media juggernaut — which seem on track to carry her to victory. But will the present trend continue? Adams hedges his bet, but notes that trend-breaking surprises are not unlikely.
