The Overlapping Personality Disorders of Barack Obama

Tests for the psychopathic and sociopathic personality disorders are often difficult to
interpret. Many symptoms are found in the minds of those seeking the highest office in
the land, serial killers, cult leaders and CEO’s of major corporations. Much has been
written about President Obama’s narcissism.

In the case of President Barack Hussein Obama the symptoms of the psychopathic
and the sociopathic personalities overlap. His narcissism along with his psychopathy
and sociopathy may well bring the country down.
   Glibness/Superficial Charm
   Language can be used without effort by them to confuse and
   convince their audience. Captivating storytellers that exude self-
   confidence, they can spin a web that intrigues others. Since they
   are persuasive, they have the capacity to destroy their critics
   verbally or emotionally.President Obama personifies the above
   traits. Inside the gym, packed to capacity with 2600 people,
   Obama was describing to the crowd how his speeches
   generally work: “At the end—or maybe somewhere in the
   middle—a shaft of light comes through and hits you and you
   experience an epiphany: I have to vote for Barack.”
   Obama has attracted Jesus comparisons since announcing his
   candidacy. He’s been described as the party’s savior. A
   Chicago art gallery displayed a sculpture depicting Obama
   crowned with a neon halo.
   Manipulative and Conning
   They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-
   serving behaviors permissible. They appear to be charming, yet
   are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as
   merely an instrument to be used. They dominate and humiliate
   their victims. See Obama the narcissist.President Obama
   doesn’t seem to care about our Constitutional rights. In spite
of the amazing freedom and liberty afforded U.S. Citizens,
President Obama believes he can impose his will upon us. ”
America is the greatest country in the world. In four more days
we will change it.”
Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.” Craves adulation
and attendance. Must be the center of attention with their own
fantasies as the “spokesman for God,” “enlightened,” “leader of
humankind,” etc. Creates an us-versus-them mentality. President
Obama represents the absolute poster child for all of the above.
As a candidate he boasted, ‘We Are The Champions’ and
shouted ‘I’m King of the World’.”

Barack Obama has vowed that he will “change the world”
Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily. It is almost impossible
for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get
caught up in a complex belief about their own powers and
abilities. Extremely convincing and able to pass lie detector
tests. Watch his lips move.How many promises has Obama
kept verses the lies he has told? Candidate Obama, repeatedly
vowed “you will not see any of your taxes increase one single
dime”. …
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep-seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their
core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as
targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims
and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always
justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.How
many people has President Obama tossed under the bus? Van
Jones, David Patterson, Pastor Jeremiah Wright, his church,
his grandma, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Jimmy Carter (who
needed it big time), Rod Blagojevich, the list goes on to fifty
seven people and that was accomplished by September 30,

Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and
compassion, it is more feigned than experienced and serves an
ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet
remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal
person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Obama ‘Leaks’ Emotion Over Gates-Cop Affair. In
Obama’s words — the police department reacted

But now, with Iowa as his witness, Obama is he starting to
sound like he believes the prophecies, too.

Incapacity for Love
While they talk about “God’s love” they are unable to give or
receive it. Since they do not believe in the genuineness of their
followers’ love, they are very harsh in testing it from their
devotees and expect them to feel guilt for their failings. Expects
unconditional surrender.Signs of outward expression of
affection have not been shown by the media.
Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge, yet testing the beliefs of their followers with
bizarre rules, punishments and behaviors. Verbal outbursts and
physical punishments are normal. The former fits like a silk
jacket, the latter has not been shown.President Obama may
already be able to challenge Bill Clinton for the title of the
biggest liar ever to occupy the White House.
Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only
contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking
advantage of them. Their skills are used to exploit, abuse and
exert power. Since the follower cannot believe their leader
would callously hurt them, they rationalize the behavior as
necessary for their (or the group’s) own “good” and deny the
abuse. When devotees become aware of the exploitation it feels
like a “spiritual rape” to them.Think wounded soldiers for
photo-op, The carefully choreographed visit to Dover, the
nation’s entry point for U.S. military personnel killed in
Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and
approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as
well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-
powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of
personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others. The
followers only see them as near perfect.Last sentence seems to
apply. Candidate Obama, “I will change the world.”
Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet
“gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping
friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals,
stealing, etc.(In his intimate memoir, “Dreams of My Father”)
that he used cocaine and marijuana in high school and college.
Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams.
Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not
accept blame themselves, but blame their followers or others
outside their group. Blame reinforces passivity and obedience
and produces guilt, shame, terror and conformity in the
followers.If this doesn’t cover his entire agenda what does?
Think budget deficit, ObamaCare and Cap and Trade. A
personal incomprehensible favorite, “Under my energy plan
utility bills will sky-rocket”
Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Totalist leaders frequently practice promiscuity, child sexual
abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts. This is usually kept
hidden from all but the inner circle. Stringent sexual control of
their followers, such as forced breakups and divorces, removal
of children from parents, rules for dating, etc. See alleged
happenings with Larry Sinclair and retaliation by Social
Security Administration, FBI and IRS Sinclair’s Book

If allegations are ever proven, President Obama would
also meet this criteria.

Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all-encompassing promises
for the future. Many groups claim as their goal world-
domination or other utopian promises. Great contrast between
the leader’s opulent lifestyle and the followers’ impoverishment.
Support by gifts and donations from the followers who are
pressured to give through fear and guilt. Highly sensitive to their
own pain and health. Last paragraph fits to a tee. Lisa Handley,
a stay-at-home mom from Portland, Ore., recalled giving
$4,600 to the Obama campaign by credit card, contributions
she made because “I love Obama,” she said.
Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image and that of the group as needed to avoid
prosecution and to increase income and to recruit a range of
members. Is able to adapt or relocate as needed to preserve the
   group. Can resurface later with a new name, a new front group
   and a new twist on the scam. ACORN changes it’s name.

   7. Conventional appearance
   8. Goal of enslavement of their victim(s)
   9. Exercises despotic control over every aspect of the

   10. Has an emotional need to justify their crimes and

   12. Incapable of real human attachment to another
   13. Unable to feel remorse or guilt

   15. May state readily that their goal is to rule the world

The above traits are based on the psychopathy checklists of H.
Cleckley and R. Hare. In the 1830′s this disorder was called
“moral insanity.” By 1900 it was changed to “psychopathic
personality.” More recently it has been termed “antisocial
personality disorder.” Order: Without Conscience: The
disturbing world of the psychopaths among us by Robert D.

The Psychopathic Personality

The psychopath is one of the most fascinating and distressing
problems of human experience. For the most part, a psychopath
never remains attached to anyone or anything. They live a
“predatory” lifestyle. They feel little or no regret, and little or no
remorse – except when they are caught. They need relationships, but
see people as obstacles to overcome and be eliminated. If not, they
see people in terms of how they can be used. They use people for
stimulation, to build their self-esteem and they invariably value
people in terms of their material value (money, property, etc..).A
psychopath can have high verbal intelligence, but they typically lack
“emotional intelligence”. They can be expert in manipulating others
by playing to their emotions. There is a shallow quality to the
emotional aspect of their stories (i.e., how they felt, why they felt that
way, or how others may have felt and why). The lack of emotional
intelligence is the first good sign you may be dealing with a
psychopath. A history of criminal behavior in which they do not
seem to learn from their experience, but merely think about ways to
not get caught is the second best sign.The following is a list of items
based on the research of Robert Hare, Ph.D. which is derived from
the “The Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised, .1991, Toronto:
Multi-Health Systems.” These are the most highly researched and
recognized characteristics of psychopathic personality and behavior.

There is no actual diagnosis of Psychopathy in the Diagnostic
and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), but it is a
highly studied area. A psychopath is not the same as an
antisocial personality. Antisocial personalities may or may not
be psychopathic. The antisocial personality is primarily a
problem involving a failure to respect the right of individuals,
the law and rules of society. Psychopathy involves poor
emotional intelligence, the lack of conscience, and an inability
to feel attached to people except in terms of their value as a
source of stimulation or new possessions There are many
expressions and forms of psychopathy. For instance, a
sexual psychopath is one form of a psychopath.
There is a significant amount of evidence to suggest that:

     •    there may be a genetic influence that creates a psychopathic

     •    adult psychopaths do not benefit from traditional counseling
          therapy and may in fact offend again and sooner because of it

     •    the brain of a psychopath may function and process
          information differently from those of non-psychopaths

     •    less intelligent psychopaths end up in prisons (highly
          intelligent psychopaths can run companies)

     •    psychopathic behavior may have once had a strong genetic
          “survival of the species” value

     •    psychopathic personalities are much more common than most
          of us realize
