Sure seems that way

Westerners better wise up: in the field of behavioral psychology, “systematic desensitization” is a well-known and effective form of graduated exposure therapy used “to help effectively overcome phobias and other anxiety disorders.” Consider the following succinct definition with my examples in brackets:
Systematic desensitization is when the client [the West] is exposed to the anxiety-producing stimulus [Islamic violence] at a low level [reports and images of Islamic violence “over there” in the Mideast], and once no anxiety is present a stronger version of the anxiety-producing stimulus is given [reports of violence closer to home, in the West]. This continues until the individual client [the West] no longer feels any anxiety towards the stimulus [Islamic violence].

Is this the plan?
Wouldn't surprise me in the least.  If it comes to seem 'normal', then our 'leaders' wouldn't feel so much pressure to actually, y'know, do something about it.

Speaking of our 'leaders',
The FBI’s year-long investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server uncovered 14,900 emails and documents from her time as secretary of state that had not been disclosed by her attorneys, and a federal judge on Monday pressed the State Department to begin releasing emails sooner than mid-October as it planned.
There should also be some action to either disbar or shoot the lawyers who for some reason didn't disclose these.  I'm sick to friggin' death of government and politicians' lawyers 'forgetting' or 'neglecting' to obey court orders, and flat breaking laws and ethical standards, and getting away with it.

Judicial Watch today released 725 pages of new State Department documents, including previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the secretary of state. In many instances, the preferential treatment provided to donors was at the specific request of Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band.
Chances of the EffingBI and DoJ doing anything?  Just about zero.

Of course, the bastards won't do anything about this, either:
However, some of the leaked DNC emails suggest that federal officials on this Administrations’ payroll were using their office to sell access to elected officials and policymakers – something much worse than trying to sway primary voters to a favored candidate. What has been missing from the media coverage of these leaked emails is serious scrutiny of the far-too-cozy relationships they show between the DNC fundraisers and the president’s staff (paid for by taxpayer dollars), with links the Obama Foundation.

For that matter, the same media and asshats who screamed bloody murder because Bush, instead of landing in New Orleans, flew over(specifically saying he didn't want the Air Force One mess to interfere with operations on the ground), make every excuse imaginable for Dear Leader Obama not interrupting his vacation over a disaster in the South.  If you actually wonder why, you're a fool.

Yes, I'm gloomy and pissed-off.  Maybe I can put something more uplifting, or at least less disgusting, up tomorrow.
