In 1692 the Salem witch trials commenced…
People were put to death under completely bogus circumstances, but nearly everyone claimed to have firsthand knowledge of these alleged witches—mass hysteria is very real.
So real that today mass hysteria has its own political party! To be fair, the people living in colonial Massachusetts were thought to have suffered from ergot poisoning —I cannot say the same of American liberals suffering from TDS.
In the modern world, mass hysteria is conjured up among the general public, but the elites in power shrewdly know better; they peddle the hysteria but inoculate themselves against it…
However, Trump derangement syndrome doesn’t discriminate based on socio-economic class.
From the common, blue-haired liberal in the street, to the very depths of the deep state, TDS is running rampant—I think one day psychologists will look back and analyze this time period as a case study in mass hysteria.
The latest case of TDS comes in the form of a former Obama official, Richard G. Olson, who recently pleaded guilty to charges of illegally trying to influence the Trump administration.
Olson allegedly worked behind the scenes on behalf of Qatar and Bahrain to influence U.S. policy in their favor and was reportedly offered a 6-figure sum in a regulatory capture, pay-to-play style deal.
As a reminder, Qatar is one of the largest and most overt state financiers of terror operations globally. There are literally Al-Qaeda recruiting offices proudly featured in certain shopping centers there.
Olson worked in an environment where he thought this type of clandestine peddling on behalf of foreign states was a-ok; this perspective makes sense when the entire structure of the deep state revolves around Donald Trump being Hitler.
After all, he likely would never have engaged in this type of behavior if an Obama or a Clinton were in office…
Here’s what we currently know:

Conservative Brief reports:
In court papers, Olson admitted he failed to disclose in annual ethics forms as required that he accepted a first-class airline ticket from New Mexico to London, as well as a stay in a luxury hotel in January 2015 — all of which were worth approximately $20,000 — from a Pakistani-American businessman who was not identified by the federal government but whose description matches Zuberi.
“Olson admitted meeting with a Bahrain businessman, who would offer him a one-year $300,000 contract for work after he left the State Department,” the paper added.
Imaad Zuberi is an extremely shady character. He was "was sentenced in February 2020 to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to tax evasion, foreign-influence peddling and campaign-finance violations."https://t.co/sJXaI5AkBF
