The Schizophrenia of Barack Obama
American Thinker, by Steve McCann

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/2/2013 8:49:36 AM

Barack Obama is a man with only one core conviction. He has, as the basic foundation of his otherwise disorganized and uncertain belief system, the irrefutable tenet that the United States, because of its European roots, has been the epitome of oppression and arrogance throughout its history. Therefore, he is able to rationalize the need to say or do anything as the transformation of American society and the end of the pre-eminent status of the United States are his sole objectives. He has, thus, adopted a pre-meditated schizophrenic personality wherein he comports himself as an apologist and appeaser on the

Do we start in DC or go back Charleston, SC and start there? This is going to be messy so I think we should wait until Christmas is over anyway.

It is quite obvious what must be done. The paper ballot is no longer effective.
But is has got to be done.
God help us.

Don´t think 0bama has schizoprenia. It´s just too hard for most to understand someone like our dear leader would want to destroy our country. Always looking for a reason "WHY?" Well, in my opinion...0bama is very smart. Very calculating. A great example of a cold communist. Everything he does has meaning and planning. This ridiculous scenario re the "breakdown" of websites...I don´t believe for a minute this was a mistake. It´s planned from day one. He sees chaos. He sees American citizens loosing their health care and he loves it. I knew if he was elected for a second term he would use the four years to tear down the country. No one can stop him. For his fifth year in office, I think he´s done a bang-up job of screwing the American people. With three more years, where will we be? A ptooey out to all who voted for him a second time...in hopes you´d be getting free, government health care. No sympathy here.

Go back to his return of Churchill´s bust in the Oval Office in 2009. Methinks there is method in his madness - he hates the Anglo-US way of life and is promulgating the return of the Caliphate; he is building detente with Iran and has an Iranian Sunni Muslim as his Chief of Staff. He is not subtle we are just blind - none dare call it treason. Obamacare is just a tactic in a long term strategy of destruction of the US.

Spot on, but we knew all this. We listened when Obama said he wanted to spread the wealth around and fundamentally transform this country. We knew who he was. He showed supreme arrogance when he told John McCain, I won. What President does that?

Now there is no doubt as to his motives or agenda, but what do we do now? Suffer through the next three years and watch the country collapse? In his cunning, Obama knew he had to creat a serious racial divide to protect himself from any talk of impeachment. Do you honestly believe there would not be riots if impeachment charges were brought against him? He knows this, it is his ace in the hole.

Then, of course, there are the hapless Republicans who are more interested in fighting conservatives than they are in preserving the Republic. We are facing a crisis of unprecedented proportions and the only salvation I can see comes from we the people. Our strength lies in numbers and we must stand united against Obama and the progressives in the Republican Party. Either we defeat both of these threats or this nation will never recover from this nightmare. All the sacrifice of so many men and women will be for nothing. We can´t afford business as usual. We have to fight for the Mike Lees and Ted Cruzes. The only thing that will work is a sea tide of patriots rising up and saying, no more.

Excellent article.

He has created a de facto secret police through the use of the Internal Revenue Service, the EPA and other government agencies to intimidate and harass his political enemies and to browbeat the American citizens into acquiescing to his edicts and demands.

Michelle said her husband "keeps his promises", so see below:

FROM THE CANADA FREE PRESS ( http://tiny.cc/tuoi7w ):

Obama delivered a speech in Boulder, Colorado in which he promised the creation and establishment of a “Civilian National Security Force.” He further promised it would be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded as the US Military." It is well known amongst dictators, the world over, that a private army is necessary to control the great unwashed masses over which they force their rule."

He is someone who would willingly inflict pain and suffering on the American people in order to permanently destroy his political enemies and accumulate near dictatorial power for the government he controls.

That is the true definition of a sociopath and perhaps even a psychopath. If you compare the two types of mental illness, it is clear that our POTUS suffers from one or both of these. Isn´t that grounds for impeachment, or do we wait until we get nuked?

This is an important piece because it gets to the root of the "progressive" problem, namely, what motivates them. It is pure insanity for the Right, or the GOP, to keep pretending that the Left is motivated by good intentions ("just like us!") when in fact, at the core of it all, their only true intent is to punish the good and destroy the successful (an agenda cleverly marketed as "fairness"). Nothing Obama has done has been any surprise to anyone who has understood his motivations, which are the same motivations of any Leftist, from Lenin on.

Great article with one significant flaw which makes it all the worse. As #12 pointed out we knew who Obama was and didn´t just wake up from a 72 month nap. You had to deliberately ignore the man himself, what he said, what he said he would do as POTUS, what he wrote, and what had actually done to not be aware of what he would do.

By definition lofos had no idea and they were a critical mass in gaining both elections. But lofos went with the cool kids in the media who knew. Despite this they chose to pitch the cool storyline to confirm their own elite superiority and/or to sell advertisements propagating a very compelling sellable story. This has far greater implications for the future.

Regardless of all the other specifics we had prior to the 2008 election consider just one; his alignment with Saul Alinsky. And aren´t we seriously discussing another disciple as a serious 2016 candidate?

Enjoying the pain you intentionally inflict on those you hate is not a Christian belief. Nor has it ultimately succeeded in the past. Even Hitler was awakened by nightmares when he was sleeping in his bunker. The problem with popular mentally ill tyrants who ´rule´ are those that suffer for their success.

Obama isn´t destroying America all by his lonesome.

George Soros, with his country-destroying tactics already manifested in stock-market manipulations in England and Greece, got the ball rolling on taking down America economically in September, 2007.

Soros is probably just a representative/figurehead of an International Banking Cabal who expects to take over the world (sometimes summarized as the New World Order), likely installing Obama as the figurehead President, once America can no longer resist.

Obama is seriously "divorced from reality" as Charles Krauthammer said. He has to be mentally ill to be such an obsessive/compulsive liar and such a hateful/vindictive person. The democrats should get all the credit for destroying our country´s value system creating absolute insane chaos and lawlessness, taking away all of our individual rights, freedom, and security.

I think we all know our African white president stole the last election, thus explaining how he won again.

Obama is succeeding somewhat because about 45% of the population agree with him! About 25% are too stupid to care and that leaves only 30% who realize the disaster he is and are trying to stop him. (Many of that 30% visit sites like this for moral support!)

We all know here that he wants to destroy us but I will do everything I can to stop him. After I run out of ammo, I´ll use my musket as a club!

Excellent article that sums up all of the faults of Obozo. Now the question is, What to we, the people, do about it? Do we sit quietly at home and accept it or do we get out and become active in removing Obozo from the scene? If we don´t, the America that we have known and loved for more than two hundred years will be just a footnote in history. Freedom will just become a word that younger people will ask "What does that mean"? I, for one, am NOT willing to go down that path. I´ll buy more ammo when I can find it and those that come to take my freedom away had better make peace with their maker. They will see HIM very soon. I´m ready for the next revolution. The sooner, the better.

CAUTION

The term "schizophrenia" is tossed about much too casually by people who really don´t understand what it is.

Schizophrenia is a genetic mental illness - - and has nothing to do with a "split personality" - - a term which lacks medical meaning.

Zippy is evil and devious - - but schizophrenia is one of the few mental conditions which he does not evidence. Please do not use it so unthinkingly.

Personally I think most everyone gives Obama too much credit. He is a little man resulting from an abusive childhood that seeks approval and acceptance.

He is merely being used as a puppet, propped up with false praise and carefully managed and surrounded by evil schemers and manipulators who work behind the scenes to destroy this nation. Soros may be one of the puppet-masters, but no doubts many others we´ve never heard of and likely a few we would be very shocked to learn about - men on ´our side´.

No - Obama is a fool and being used. He is no smarter than most of us and does not by any means work in a vacuum. He is mentally unstable, fearful and most likely being blackmailed. The perfect tool.

# 29 has the courage to define the real Obama.
Most of those who resist his policies are also giving him more deliberate motives because they can use his stumbling execution of power to excuse their own failure to stand and force him to desist.
Even without conviction thrusting him from that power the force of impeachment is a powerful weapon. A weapon that serves notice to the supporters of such corruption that they have gone too far.
Bill Clinton was impeached for a moral and social failure instead of the real high crimes his administration committed. His party could safely vote to not expel him based on those deemed petty charges.
There is more than enough legal anti constitutional proof of Barack Obama´s real corruption that the progressives cannot smear a prosecutor backed by the people.
Congress members who do not act for the people and constitution should be removed too.

#27 ~ there is plenty of evidence that Obama suffers from hereditary schizophrenia ~

It´s a mild form but it´s a big enough force in his life to make him an easy mark for those who would misuse him, whether it´s the preacher at Trinity, or Rahm Emanuel and David Axelrod (both totally unprincipled ideologues), or possibly the crazy woman he left in charge of HHS.

Let´s start with symptom #1 ~ early onset with use of marijuana ~ no doubt what was going on there ~ dude took a good 10 years to do 8 years worth of university level studies.

Second symptom ~ he talks to himself constantly. Remember his Blackberry? He didn´t need that to make cell calls ~ he needed that to excuse his internal conversations where one side of his brain informs the other of it´s intentions by simply talking.

We have hundreds of thousands of these guys walking around use cell phones as covers for this condition!

He retires to the relief afforded by mild exercise CONSTANTLY.

He seems to have little respect for the concept of TIME and SCHEDULES.

Otherwise he´s simply not very bright. Not that he´s stupid but somebody taught him how to shave, bathe and dress himself with a fair degree of regularity. Joe Biden, a head case himself, commented on that!

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
