"Just two friends chatting." That's the dynamic Brannon Howse observed as Mike Lindell interviewed President Trump last week at Mar-a-Lago. And indeed, they are old friends since their first meeting years ago facilitated by their mutual friend, Dr. Ben Carson.
Since then Mike Lindell has gone from oblivious to politics to "a great Patriot," as President Trump said. It still blows my mind that one private citizen could host such a spectacular Cyber Symposium that made headlines worldwide. Of course, it does help to be rich but Mr. Lindell has struggled back from losing everything and his My Pillow products are spectacular. (Much thanks again to the Patriot who sent us six MyPillows. Michael went from turning over and over uncomfortably in his hospital bed to floating happily on MyPillow Cloud 9. And if your mattress is uncomfortable as ours were, don't hesitate to buy a MyPillow mattress topper. They're worth every penny and you can even pay in small installments, as we are, with no interest charged!)
But I digress. Frequently.
Mike Lindell has all the numbers: 80 million votes. That's the real count of how many Americans voted for President Trump on Nov. 3rd, 2020. Take that, Chris Christie, ya RINO!
But anyways, here is the long-awaited conversation between Mike Lindell and President Trump. Enjoy!
The conversation begins so innocently. Something like, "Hey! I like your Trump flag" or "Nice MAGA hat." Half an hour later you stumble away muttering, "It's colossal asshats like him that give true Patriots a bad name."
For the last eight months, I've been arguing passionately that true Patriots are peaceful, intelligent, loving, God-fearing people. You know it and I know it. But in every barrel there's that one frickin' bad apple. A stupid, bloodthirsty, racist disgrace besmirching the good name of "Patriot."
The Powers-That-Be love it, painting us all with the same brush.
Unluckily for me, I recently ran across that one frickin' bad apple. What an education!
His name is Chaudhary Raffique Gujjar.
He's one of the adorable Indian tribal people featured on the popular YouTube channel, Tribal People Try, who are shown experiencing Western things...our food, our candy, our culture, our technology.
Mr. Gujjar has captured the hearts of many Americans with his sunny disposition and hilarious facial expressions when tasting our food (after the pop rocks episode, you can't blame him for looking worried!). That's why Americans Mary and Kayla regularly send over gifts for himself, his wife but mostly his children.
And every time, Mr. Gujjar gets all choked up. Being a big strong man he tries to hide it but in the Feb. 7th video he couldn't hold back the tears of joy and gratitude.
"Such loving people still exist in this world!" he said, mopping his eyes. (I'm always squirting tears everywhere too. Donations often get me crying!)
His words hit me hard because that's how we all feel.
Even though Mr. Gujjar's lives in a poor and isolated tribe, he too has gotten the message. His words betray how we all feel. A discouragement. A hopelessness. A fear that there's no good, kind, loving people left in this cockeyed world.
Governments worldwide have behaved so badly, staging false flags to start wars, teaching us to fear each other based on locality, ethnicity, religion, whatever.
It's all rubbish!
It's the governments that are the bad ones. Not the little people, the tribal people, the regular John and Jane Does of the world. The people like you and me and Mr. Gujjar.
Loving people still exist in this world everywhere and Patriots exist worldwide too. In fact, thanks to Donald Trump, the word "Patriot" has recently been redefined.

As my husband and I watched the National Day of Prayer and Repentance, the moment came where Franklin Graham asked the congregation on the National Mall to pray. After a hushed moment, the sound of 50,000 voices raised in prayer swelled in a great din of supplication. Glancing over at Michael, I noticed that he was covered with goosebumps...and he doesn't goosebump easily.
As tears flowed down my cheeks, I had goosebumps on my goosebumps.
Thank God for a nation that prays in the name of Jesus, Amen.
As soon as Donald Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, screams of "Narcissist!" resounded through cyberspace.
It was the perfect label at the perfect time. The whole Narcissism trend had just started and I was in the perfect place at the perfect time too. As Trump began his presidential campaign, I began writing PsychCentral's first dedicated narcissism blog, Narcissism Meets Normalcy.
