On this website we may have been the first to describe Barack Obama as a psychopath. That was way back in 2009 after we had studied his forays into needless public lying as President.
Our experience working in Mental Health and Child Protection Services -as well as working for a grand psychopathic liar for several years – has been invaluable in recognizing lying psychopaths. There are many in American politics and not all of them are on the Democrat side. Politics, and the opportunities it offers to perform ’authenticity’ and practice lies on the public stage, simultaneously becoming famous, wealthy and powerful, inevitably attracts the boldest and most-skilled conscienceless liars.
Recently Michael Savage, the courageous -sometimes outrageous- San Francisco Talk Show Host, has been debating with his audience whether Obama is a psychopath or a sociopath. Good for Savage and we never resent our originality being overtaken by a brave Nationalist with a radio microphone and bully pulpit. ‘Sociopath’ is a recent addition to the mental health vocabulary and given that we do not think Obama is mentally deranged (the definition of a psychopath), we think it is a more accurate description.
Hollywood and the theater also attract both psychopaths and sociopaths in great numbers, for acting, like politics, provides opportunities to deceive an audience, fake emotions, step into another and more impressive identity, and cut corners on the road to fame and wealth.
This is not to say that all actors are sociopaths. We know one ex-actor and genuine patriot who is certainly not insincere or insecure. But we should not be surprised that a President who was selected, funded and protected by the revolutionary Ruling Media Class in Hollywood, was chosen for his shallow acting skills, for being a lying sociopath, a man in a hurry to be famous and a man devoid of conscience and principles.
Grand sociopaths rise to the occasion. The bigger the role, the better they perform and the more compulsively they lie and strut. Grand sociopaths are hugely ambitious. Given their limited powers of patience and concentration and lack of character depth, they use their skills of lying boldly, easily slipping into roles and exercising their super- quick wits. They have no patience for study and the regular hard-work that guarantee no rewards, for they believe they are entitled to fame, power and riches and view themselves as too obviously superior to have to wait and compete. The nearest they get to ‘feelings’ comes from the excitement of deceiving others with their lies. Because of their skills in spotting gullibility and weakness in others, advancing by bigger and bolder lies, and acquiring roles to suit the moment (in short an absence of character), a Grand Sociopath may make it all the way to the White House.
Not all liars are sociopaths. Bill Clinton’s sexual predatory behavior may be sociopathic but his lying about Monica Lewinsky was motivated by self-preservation. His wife lies frequently from political necessity but we have no evidence that she lies simply to exercise her mental superiority over others.
Obama’s gun performance yesterday was notable for his brazen act of false emotion. There is no evidence in his past 7 years in the White House that he becomes upset by the tragedies of others. Indeed his frequent golf vacations, Benghazi and his trips to Martha’s Vineyard resemble Nero’s violin playing while Rome burned. Watching the crocodile tears flow from his left eye, we were reminded of the great Julie London performance of ‘Cry Me A River’, accompanied by guitarist Barney Kessel. On the record, London reveals no pity, just the satisfaction of vengeance.
The Obama performance revealed not only his insincerity and his acting skills, but also his lack of a long-term Presidential perspective. As my 11 year-old son remarked, “What must our enemies think of a leader who cries so easily?” Obama may have impressed the gullible of America with a tearful act of weakness, but Putin, ISIS and the North Koreans will assume that Obama and the Nation he rules are emotional girly-boys.
The Media attacks on Donald Trump are increasingly desperate. Last weekend’s Wall Street Journal had a long article digging into his business past and focusing on times when the economy made his financial position precarious. The scare tactics of ‘he will alienate the Republican Hispanic vote’ are getting another ‘do-over’. His response to a Media question about Cruz’s citizenship eligibility, is being taken out of context to create a rift between the two Republican poll leaders. The massive attendances at his meetings are either played down by the MSM or ignored, whilst a 300 crowd for Christie in New Hampshire is portrayed as a significant revival. Heather Haddon in today’s WSJ writes (note the Bush name comes first!) “Jeb Bush and Mr. Trump held dueling events Tuesday”. Trump drew 8,000 and Bush drew how many?
Meanwhile Trump dares Hillary and Bill to play the ‘women as victims’ card. By doing so he cleverly reminds Americans of Bill’s finest moments in the Oval office with Monica. He draws comparisons between Clinton and Cosby with its racial undertones. We especially liked his ‘chastisement’ of an audience member who shouted out that Obama was a Muslim. Trump’s chats to his audiences may be repetitive in basic content but they reflect his focus on what he (and many Americans) see as the truly big issues that need to be tackled, and will be tackled if he is elected.
We finish today with this commonsense observation that is avoided by the MSM propaganda and politicians.
Is it not madness to send young American soldiers -our finest young people – to Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria to be killed, maimed and exposed to incredible hardship, at a time when hundreds of thousands of the fit young men from those countries are arriving in the West to be protected, placed in hotels and hostels, fed, heated, indulged in their religion and given Bill Clinton-style access to young infidel women?
