Politics can be mundane, but rarely boring

A psychological assessment of Der Leader Barry Sotero Obama

with one comment

The conclusions reached by Dr. Vaknin below certainly seem to describe Barry Sotero Obama rather well.

It does however, in my opinion, presume there is no ulterior motive behind the actions taken by the current regime master. I on the other hand, find it difficult to believe even a deranged and mentally unstable, but well meaning, President would be capable of the destruction of a nation he professes to care about.

The assessment of the unhinged and uncaring attitude of the political neophyte thrust into a position of power in this fashion, begs for an answer to why those who placed him there would do so.

If there is a logical explanation which is capable of being shown to have a benefit to the American People in either a long term, or extremely long term scenario, I would certainly like to know what it is. My reason being, I simply don’t see this nation being able to turn back the clock to a degree which will allow personal freedoms to be regained.

Dr. Sam Vaknin is an Israeli psychologist. Interesting view on our President.
Dr. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism.

Dr. Vaknin States “I must confess I was impressed by Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident — a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling.. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama’s speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history. Never a politician in this land had such quasi “religious” impact on so many people.

The fact that Obama is a total incognito with Zero accomplishment, makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact he is quite ignorant on most important subjects.”

Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of the Malignant Self Love believes “Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist.” Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism. He understands narcissism and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person. When he talks about narcissism everyone listens. Vaknin says that Obama’s language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, dearest friends suggest that the man is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves. Jim Jones, the charismatic leader of People’s Temple, the man who led over 900 of his followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their own children was also a narcissist. David Koresh, Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko Asahara, Stalin, Saddam, Mao, Kim Jong Ill and Adolph Hitler are a few examples of narcissists of our time. All these men had a tremendous influence over their fanciers. They created a personality cult around themselves and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirers, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest for life. They gave them hope! They promised them the moon, but alas, invariably they brought them to their doom.

When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don’t know it until it is too late. One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhood abuse “Obama’s early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations,”says Vaknin. “Mixed-race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant two years old. Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident. Then his mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia , a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a step-father. At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white) grandparents. He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979. “She died of cancer in 1995.”

One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological narcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it overwhelms those around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people become like clay in his hands. They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be at his service. The narcissist shapes the world around himself and reduces others in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of personality. His admirers become his co-dependents. Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal objective. They are focused on one thing alone and that is power. All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste their precious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is beneath them and does not deserve their attention.

If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it. The “present” vote is a safe vote. No one can criticize him if things go wrong. Those issues are unworthy by their very nature because they are not about him.

Obama’s election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to a contract and advance to write a book about race relations. The University of Chicago Law School provided him a lot longer than expected and at the end it evolved into, guess what? His own autobiography! Instead of writing a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had been paid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self. He entitled the book Dreams from My Father.

Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he was still a nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as important as his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and genius writing about insignificant things when he can write about such an august being as himself?

Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm, they lack conscience. This is evident from Obama’s lack of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month.. A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and who raised nearly half a billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother. Why? Because, his brother cannot be used for his ascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself.

This election was like no other in the history of America . The issues were insignificant compared to what is at stake. What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?

I hate to sound alarmist, but one is a fool if one is not alarmed. Many politicians are narcissists. They pose no threat to others. They are simply self serving and selfish. Obama evidences symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or a Bill Clinton for example. To him reality and fantasy are intertwined.

This is a mental health issue, not just a character flaw.
Pathological narcissists are dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent. It is this disguise that makes them treacherous. Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man could put an end to their party. The great majority of blacks voted for Obama. Only a fool does not know that their support for him is racially driven. This is racism, pure and simple.

The downside of this is that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The blacks are unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cultic mentality is pernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heads deeper in the sand and blame Obama’s detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the whites. The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and they will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four years, racial tensions will increase to levels never seen since the turbulent 1960’s.

Obama will set the clock back decades. America is the bastion of freedom. The peace of the world depends on the strength of America , and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations.. It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Castrists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists, and virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect of their man in the White House.

America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as president.

  1. Gar,

    Excellent article. I wonder sometimes how so many people vote for him. And, he is a very dangerous pathological narcissist. The charm fools many people and they only look at his “likeable” without seeing the danger behind the mask, which is not all that hidden right now.

    If people would do their research we’d never have this Evil Doer for a prez. He will lie about anything to your face and make people believe him. Then he turns around and does more damage. Rush said the Evil One would get the moron vote and obviously these people are morons.

    They never learned to make a page with the pros and cons of this man. I have to say i have found no pros at all. I figured he was a very dangerous man from the only 2 bills he put before the Illinois senate, one for complete banning of guns in the whole State of Illinois. The other was a bill to kill babies when they are born alive after an abortion does not kill the baby.

    On those two things alone, I figured he was so evil that he would be willing to have babies killed after born alive and a control freak due to his wanting a gun ban. I never would have voted for him the first time, not to mention a 2nd time with all the damage he already has done to this country.

    My first marriage was to one of these pathological narcissists. He charmed people. He was completely power hungry and he wanted complete control over me and my now dead son. I did not realize what he was at first as we were both 21 when we married. Later, I discovered so many ways he would demean me and if that one didn’t work, he’d find another way. When we got divorced I never wanted to see him ever again.

    He hogged all conversations believing he knew more than anyone and everyone.

    When my son killed himself he told me “it was best that Jeff killed himself”. I almost fainted at those words. Then I saw him look slyly at me as he slowly walked away. This was at my daughter in law’s house right after Jeff died and I had to be in his company. What he wanted was for me to lose my temper so he could pat himself on the back for “having control over me”. But I knew his tricks so I did not react with anger. I felt like I wanted to slap him in the face, but I knew the game very well by then.

    So, that is what this rat bastard is, only interested in himself and he doesn’t care who he hurts or kills for that matter in the process.

    Like you I don’t think we have a chance in hell of ever repairing the damage he has done. Congress won’t touch him due to the blacks. They have no balls. And in another 4 years we’re are going to be totally destroyed by him. Rush also said this on his show this afternoon. He too believes “it is over” the experiment that once made this country so great is gone and he will destroy everything including us with his personal army, whoever that may be, his new Hitler Youth Group and anyone else he can get to go along with him.

    Sometimes, when I think of it, I simply start to shake. I know we are coming to a very bad end. What a tragedy this is.
