The Lunatic Has Taken Over The Asylum

"I won" ~ Barrack Hussein Obama

I read this piece over at Trader Rick's blog. Rick often posts things he received through e-mail. At first, I did nothing with it. Often times, things sent through e-mail are simply not true. So, I initially dismissed it, thinking it either wasn't important, or worse, not factual.

But, I couldn't get it out of my mind. So I looked up Dr. Samuel Vaknin on Google and found a wealth of information about him. He is what he portrays himself to be. An expert on Narcissistic Personality Disorder. He knows what he's talking about.

Disclaimer: This entire article was not written by Dr. Vaknin. Only the parts in italics are actual quotes from Dr. Vaknin. He is not a Doctor of Psychology, but he has written several books and papers on the subject of narcissism. The author of the article referenced by the e-mail, on Trader Rick's blog, that was quoted in the e-mail, as it has been pointed out, is Ali Sina.

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 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. Barack Obama is a narcissist.

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 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! 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 do not deserve their attention. (remember how Obama ignored the victims of last month's ice storm in the south?)

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 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 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 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 have also 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.

This is an important revelation. I believe Obama is as dangerous to America as Hitler was to Germany, as Stalin was to Russia, as Chairman Mao was to China, etc.

If he is allowed to continue to manipulate America and Americans so recklessly unchecked he will destroy America.

I agree with you 100%. I saw this trait in him with his "Office of President-Elect". He gives radio address AND you-tube videos. This guy LOVES seeing his face on TV. He wants to mesmerize his masses. Just like Hitler. That's who he reminds me of. I said he was an ego maniac way back and I haven't been proven wrong. I'm sorry I wasn't. I hope you are, but I don't think you are, either. People faint at his rallies and speeches. This is scarier than Hell. I fear for America.

This most certainly WILL destroy America unless people wake up, and we cannot wait four years to get rid of him, that will be too late.

Anybody with half a brain good see just how narcissistic he is and over inflated his ego is, not only with his "OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT-ELECT" as Pamela says, but by the very fact that he seems to have an unquenchable need to be on television EVERY single day and several times a day. Everything is about him. God help us all.

If America is so stupid as to allow this guy to become our Hitler, then it's time for America to die anyway. Out of the ashes, maybe something better will arise...

Mark said...

Maybe so, Rick, but I, for one, am not prepared to "go gently into that good night" of Socialism without a fight.

As for the "I won", I believe Obama should have said, I bought it. His contributions were never investigated, were they? mom2

That's because there was no need to. There was never any shred of evidence of any illegal contributions. I assume you are referring to the "non-investigation" of contributions under $200. There is no requirement to provide any further information than what was provided and no evidence whatsoever to suggest wrong-doing. My contribution was legal.

Mark said...

Actually there are a lot of suspicious, possible illegal contributions to Obama's campaign, starting with the thousands of dollars that were contributed illegally from other countries, and also the thousands of fraudulent voter registrations contributed by Obama's former students, also known as ACORN, and other equally suspect organizations who registered thousands of non-existent voters, including dead people, to vote for Obama.

Members of ACORN, in particular, are currently awaiting trial on voter fraud charges in 14 states. That's fourteen, Jim. How do you ignore this obvious suspicious activity?
