Ask The Psychologist Issue #32: Just Because you are Paranoid doesn’t Mean they aren’t After you.

Joseph Heller once stated, “Just because your paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.”

Today I had an attorney friend of over 30 years tell me, “I don’t exactly trust anyone anymore”. Although this is the nature of being an attorney, he was personally concerned on a more human and personal levels as to who to trust. Like Heller said, just because people tell others they are over reacting or conspiracy theorists, doesn’t mean there is nothing happening. Both those statements are killer statements to shut down a discussion.

In the past, the statement below was very credible and accepted. It is not so in today’s world, with the prevailing attitude – “do what I tell you to do or I will hurt 

you” It goes as follows:

The attorney friends dilemma and most of the countries confusion as who to trust, is destroying relationships and trust in America for the past decade or so. It is like playing the TV game show everyday called, To Tell the Truth.

To Tell the Truth is a game show where three people, all of whom claim to be someone, are questioned by a panel of four celebrities. One of them is the real person, while the other two are just impostors. The panelists take turns questioning the people about their subject and then try to guess which of the three people is the truth teller. Originally, in the 1956 pilot, it was called Nothing But the Truth.

 But in our current society, we have an even harder time determining who is being truthful. There is no open forum for debate, by being able to ask people with opposing opinions, who are in the same room, to explain themselves. It would be as if on the game show, no one on the panel could ask the 3 people questions, but the panel would have to go to the social media or TV news shows to make the decisions for them as to who is being truthful. It is like the exercise we had in Psychology 101, when you show a person in the front of the room a picture of a dog and ask them to describe the animal to the person next to them. By the time it gets to the back of the classroom, it becomes a camel. 

 But truth in our present society has never been more important or harder to obtain. I recently had a chance to talk directly with the Scientific Director of a major lab company about the number of cycles they run Covid tests at in their labs. I explained that over a year ago Dr Fauci said, in an interview played on TV, that anything over 35 cycles would give you a large number of false positives. But the FDA immediately stated that labs must run tests over 40 cycles. The Lab Science Officer told me that they run the test at all their labs at 45 cycles. When I asked him why the medical community doesn’t have this information, he stated that the FDA made it illegal for labs to reveal this information. After revealing this to me, he realized he said too much and referred me back to my local testing facility that we both knew did not have this information.

 Below I have listed some videos and comments, which hopefully give you direct information from people I feel are credible, to some of the questions many of us feel aren’t being answered to our satisfaction. As I previously stated, “Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.”

 Li-Meng Yan, MD, PhD Stunning Contrasts: US vs. Chinese Culture

 This heroic Chinese physician and virologist, Li-Meng Yan MD, PhD came to America to warn us about China’s intentions with the release of COVID-19. Now she offers a heartfelt discussion of the political, psychological, and spiritual differences between the traditions of the American people and the Chinese people. Her observations provide a window into the great differences within the interior minds of most Americans and most Chinese. For the first time, Dr. Yan also speaks about the spiritual journey that brought her to America. 

 This interview will deepen your understanding of both China and America. It’s about the consequences for our differing ways of everyday life and for our ability to remain the strongest nation on Earth. She also voices her concerns about the unexpected growing censorship that she immediately confronted in the social media and the big media. After her life-threating escape to American, Dr. Yan became one of the doctors to be censored about COVID-19. Are we beginning to look more like Communist China than we imagine?

Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) who was a prominent Lutheran pastor in Germany. He emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. He is perhaps best remembered for his postwar words.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Catholics, and I did not speak out— because I was not a Catholic.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Unearthing The Corruption That is Sickening America

 Diana West is the author of amazing deep dives into the influence of communism on the American establishment. During this interview, I was astonished by the new connections she has made, for example, between Russia Gate—the fake attempts to link President Trump to Russia—and the communist’s ties of those who were perpetrating the false charges against the President. Diana also helped deepen the connections between COVID-19 and communist ambitions to overthrow Western Society. 

Two of her books, American Betrayal and The Red Thread, are an absolute necessity for understanding the decline of America into totalitarianism and what must be done to reverse. No one else is as intensively and deeply committed to unearthing the truth in this hidden area of our lives—the influence of communism over American life. She also provides a significant analysis of President Trump’s failures to deal with COVID-19. Like her earlier appearance on the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour, this is one of the most important interviews I have ever conducted.

 A real hero : 

Malala Yousafzai initially became famous for her childhood activism against the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP’s) restrictions on education for girls. She appeared on television and wrote a blog for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). An attempt on her life was made when she was shot in the head, which she survived.


Last but not least I told my attorney friend: Please go to my book website and click on the heading ASK THE PSYCHOLOGIST. I may have answers for your question, who do you believe.Read Issues – 8, 14, 17, 19,  23, 27 and 30
