‘Americans needs to take a close look at the president’s decisions’
(Tea Party) – It seems that the majority of politicians these days could be diagnosed with a range of mental disorders maybe even bordering on sociopaths or psychopaths, says Gina Loudon for WND.
Psychopath and sociopath are often used interchangeably today even by those in the mental health field. That is because often times the symptoms are somewhat consistent. Those symptoms include a lack of conscience and absolutely no moral compass as well as manipulative behavior, low range of emotions and interpersonal insensitivity.
A psychopath is deadly yet he is also well-spoken, very charismatic, fearless yet controlling, socially potent, a habitual liar and calm to a disturbing degree in the face of chaos and cold heartedness. A psychopath is a master at blaming others.
In an Huffington Post science piece, David Freeman quotes clinical psychologist Dr. Stout, who points out that though the psychopath may not feel love and guilt, or “higher emotions”, he or she may not actually have a conscience although the psychopath will study those who do – and “simply pretend.”
According to psychologists, the early signs that point to someone being a psychopath include such things as compulsive lying, blaming others for any failures or shortcomings and even torture of animals for curiosity sake. Such psychopathic individuals tend to do things to study consequences, but have no concern for long-term impact. It seriously sounds like most politicians today. The truth is. that many probably fit the exact psychopath profile…not to mention any names.
As Mr. Freeman says in his article, psychopaths make a great first impression. But he also points to other characteristics they have. too. Freeman referenced the initial popularity of Pol Pot, Hitler, Ceausescu and others, but that image of a golden boy soon fades to that a ruthless, inhumane manipulator with very dark intentions.
It is interesting to consider all of this and then compare it to the characteristics of President Obama from the time he took office. Initially he possessed charisma and likability. According to many he had the perfect-looking family with the perfect face at the perfect time for America to fall for him. No one questioned him for fear of being labeled a racist—even though his opponents pointed out the glaring issues.
It is said that psychopaths often act without regard for anyone affected. Because of their ability to remain calm and manipulate large groups of people, even when committing atrocities, they get away with actions that others in their positions haven’t.
Despite the American economy being in collapse, Obama has taken more swanky vacations than any other president. He and his entire family and entourage have spent tens of millions of American taxpayer dollars taking exotic vacations in posh places like Hawaii, Vail, Europe and Africa. His predecessors did not take such vacations but instead went to Camp David and Martha’s Vineyard or to their own vacation homes. The Bushes’ went to Kennebunkport, the Kennedys went to Cape Cod, the Reagans has their Rancho Del Cielo in California or George W has his Crawford, Texas home.
Unlike Obama, other presidents have been exceptionally sensitive to the state of the American people. They would give up or forgo vacations when the American people were mourning or hurting economically. This is not the case with the Obamas. When the economy hit rock bottom, gas prices were through the roof, and Americans were going without basic needs let alone vacations, Obama extended his wife and daughters’ vacation in Spain.
But we know that luxury vacations are just the start. We’ve seen that Obama has golfed more than any other president. There have been days when America was under attack, our military had heroes give their lives, and our nation has been in mourning but there is Obama, playing a game of hoops with a hip-hop star or a round of golf with a key contributor. Do you know that his advisers had to pull him off the golf course to talk him into taking out Osama bin Laden?
Conservatives can decry this point all they want but the media scoffs. The media are only interested when Republicans are accused of personal excesses. Case in point: the media’s big cry over the fake issue of Bush 41′s apparent introduction to the grocery store scanner. Such media protection emboldens.
And nothing has changed.
After the second round of murders of government-guaranteed defenseless Fort Hood soldiers just last week, Obama managed to produce an alligator tear for the cameras…before he beelined for the back door so he could head to a $32,000-per-plate party for himself.
Such lack of authenticity would be very difficult, likely debilitating, for anyone with a conscience.
However, audacity is a manifestation of psychopathy, and Obama is the master. He has forced more items into law by executive order than any other president in such a short period of time. Historically, this is only done in very rare instances, because presidents know that the American people will not tolerate such tyranny. Yet Obama just explains it away, if mentioned by media at all. He simply whines that it is “the other party’s obstructionist acts” or “someone else forced the president to act so cavalierly.”
And so that brings us to the next habit of the psychopath: blaming others. As many are aware, Obama and his cronies blamed President Bush for everything. It is so bad it has become laughable. Obama and his followers blame the tea party for any bad press, the Koch brothers for any mishaps and Congress as the reason for Obama’s tyrannical executive orders. The removal of the filibuster was a means of defense against Obama’s imperial appointments.
A skilled psychopath makes his own biases look like they are the opponents shortcomings. Remember back to when the New Black Panther thugs were intimidating voters during the 2008 election with clubs. Anyone who voiced concerns or objections was targeted as a racist and alarmist for even bringing up the issue. As soon as Obama was elected he had his buddy, attorney general, Eric Holder, not only drop all charges but also drop convictions! Obama is quick to accuse others of racial bias, yet Obama is one of the worst offenders.
Psychopaths love the pity party. Recently, in an interview with New Yorker Magazine, Obama continued the usual tirade, claiming people hate him for his race. The psychopath uses this ploy to gain sympathy. Obama is a master at this. When anyone criticizes him, he manages to sway the public to feel sorry for him. Remember, he just blames his tyrannical abuse of the executive order power on those horrible Republicans who hate him because he is black.
A psychopath has a mysterious and shady past. What do we know about President Obama’s formative years and his college years? Very little because one of Obama’s first actions was to seal his records. Records are sealed or withheld, and requests for them are dismissed as ridiculous requests from paranoid detractors.
Great at connecting personally with people, the psychopath has an uncanny way of convincing everyone that he is one of them. Yes, President Obama is just a normal guy who likes movies, basketball, golf and likes to play video games. There is a name for this and experts call it mirroring.
Now we get to what is perhaps the most frightening symptom of the psychopath: kill while keeping their own hands clean. Think about it. Obama takes full credit for killing Osama bin Laden. He stole the glory from our Navy SEALs and at the same time betrayed the existence of SEAL Team Six. He exposed them to an assassination risk – one that resulted in the worst catastrophic loss of life in the history of the SEALs. Yet ask yourself: did Obama take responsibility for that? He sure spent far less time mourning their loss or taking responsibility for their deaths than he did taking credit for being tough dealing with terror.
It’s fascinating. Obama took all the credit for bin Laden, but has not taken one iota of responsibility for any of the deaths resulting from Fast and Furious. He freely put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels—a move that cost American and other lives. He never expressed any sense of responsibility nor for that matter any remorse. Then he capitalizes on the situation by parading out gun control.
Perhaps the most flagrant act of this president in demonstrating psychopath traits is his utter lack of remorse and the pure lack of responsibility shown in the Benghazi attacks. Despite the American public’s outrage and fury over the lies and manipulations that cost these precious American lives, the administration has continued to arrogantly dismiss, excuse and ignore any culpability and has yet to hold anyone accountable.
No one knew that Pol Pot, Hitler or Ceausescu were psychopaths until it was too late. Could America point the psychopath in the Oval Office before it is too late?
