Former Congressman Joe Walsh, who has mounted a Republican primary challenge to Donald Trump that most of us have not heard about, has concluded that his party is now a cult in the grip of the President.
Walsh has accused his fellow GOP members of giving in to Trump’s cultish leadership and said he has even gotten threats for challenging Trump in the primary.
Experts on cults agree that there is a disturbing parallel between how President Donald Trump addresses his supporters and how cult leaders manipulate their followers.

Hassan has helped people with destructive cults, mind control, brainwashing, parental alienation, estrangement, unethical hypnosis, abusive relationships, human trafficking, multi-level marketing, violent extremism & other forms of undue influence.
