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
This Country is Doomed if we don't act soon
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
Never a politician in this land had such quasi "religious" impact on so
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
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
Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people become like clay in
They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be at his service. The
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
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
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.
