    Obama the Psychopath



    Dr. Sam Vaknin is an Israeli psychologist with an interesting view on

    our new president.


    Dr. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism.


    Dr. Vaknin States "I must confess I was impressed by Sen. Barack Obama

    from the first time I saw him.  At first I was excited to see a black


    He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident - a wholesome

    presidential package.



    This Country is Doomed if we don't act soon



    Impeach Obama


    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,


    this inexplicable infatuation ala


    Obama is not an ordinary man.  He is not a genius.  In fact he is quite

    ignorant on most important subjects."


    Barack Obama is a narcissist.


    Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of the Malignant Self Love believes


    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 and nearest

    suggest that the Senator 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!C2 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


    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


    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


    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 do 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



    Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when

    he was still nobody. 20So did


    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 has 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 is like no

    other in the history of America .

    The issues are 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



    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.


    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

    have also decided to vote 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



    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 depends20on 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.
