Fifteen Things You Probably Do Not Know about Psychopaths
American Thinker ^ | June 27, 2014 | Greg G. Long

Posted on 06/27/2014 7:54:19 AM PDT by MtnClimber

5. Control – Psychopaths want to control you – physically, emotionally, sexually, financially, and politically. Psychopaths want to control your soft drinks, your ability to defend yourself, your health care, and your life.

Snip

The rarest of psychopathic types is the intellectual psychopath.Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky, and Cloward-Piven come to mind. Both Marx and Alinsky displayed psychopathic traits and inspired other psychopaths to infiltrate and sometimes forcibly seize governments, followed by characteristic psychopathic inefficiency, incompetence, and corruption in the administration of the state.

TOPICS: Health/Medicine; Society
KEYWORDS: democrats; marxists; politicians; psychopaths
Many psychopaths start out as crimminal defense attorneys, siding with the crimminals and making up lies to get them acquitted while not caring at all about the victims. Then they go into politics where they can victimize more individuals. The determination of which party these psycopaths generally gravitate to is left as a homework assignment for the class.

Probably the #1 giveaway when it comes to psychopaths are their lack of authentic emotion, you will see them acting pretentious or over-acting an emotion simply because they do not feel emotions. Al Gore is el primo example. He is without question a psychopath. Remember his kiss with Tipper and the eye rolling when he was debating Bush? That’s just how psychopaths act. Completely devoid of emotion, like being blind and pretending to see. He acts like that all the time. Oh, or when he gets “angry” remember that when he was making pretend he was angry at the “climate deniers” and he screamed at the top of his lungs? Just completely over the top because he has no idea what anger is.

Don’t know why the first word in the title got messed up as I did a copy and paste. It should be Fifteen.

For people who don’t want to take chances, but want to make ABSOLUTELY SURE they are voting for a psychopath: Just vote for the pro-abortion candidate.

In national and international relations, psychopaths create and exploit divisions based on ethnic, religious, national, or class differences.

That is, based on demographic data.

And when they exploit these divisions to pursue certain outcomes, they assure people that "Demography is destiny!"

And non-psychopaths fall for it.

But demography is only pretense to divide, manipulate, and exploit. In human societies, MORALITY is destiny. The same destiny awaits any group that indulges in envy, avarice, and promiscuity, whether that group is made up of rich white people or poor black folks. Demography has ZERO to do with destiny.

On the other hand, demography has EVERYTHING to do with the pretense politics engages to divide and manipulate voting blocks based on cosmetic data such as race and income.

The will to do so...wondering if the psychopaths in charge would allow it. Explains a lot of foreign policy.

I experience this constantly at work.

I have a VERY disturbed and dangerous co worker who is pathologically controlling.

She also sucks up to her bosses and makes them into servile enablers who love her because she will DO stuff for them... even THEIR work. They don’t even know HOW dangerous she is.

In the short run, it has compromised their status... in the long run, NO one respects the supervisory personnel who OUGHT to set themselves above being handled like this.

They want control...look at Thad Cochran’s bio: “He then received a B.A. degree from the University of Mississippi with a major in psychology and a minor in political science in 1959. There he joined the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity and was on the cheerleading squad (fellow senator Trent Lott was also an Ole Miss cheerleader).[5] After a time in the United States Navy (1959–1961), he attended the University of Mississippi School of Law, was elected to the Phi Kappa Phi honor society and graduated in 1965. He then practiced law for seven years.Cochran grew up as a Democrat, but became a Republican sometime in the mid-to-late 1960s. He served as head of Richard Nixon’s Mississippi campaign in 1968.”

His use of psychopathic means to maintain control - using Democrat fear-mongering tactics in minority areas to control an election outcome shows a willingness to move beyond accepted bounds of political campaigning into a level of crazy that marks him as a classic case. Oh, yes - he practiced law...

“Upon reading this article, I thought I had just read Obama’s biography.”

The control issue, whether you can defend yourself, whether you can drink sugary sodas, whether you’re required to pay for somebody else’s birth control, that’s the Democratic party at its core.

Instead of teaching kids how to wrap their wrascal in a wubbery wrapper before before getting it on...

Maybe we should teach children about the exuistence of psychopaths and how to spot them.

Would do a hell of a lot more good, especially in the long run!

Anyone who's read Rules For Radicals fully understands that Saul Alinsky was a pure psychopath so that pretty much makes his followers,which includes the entire hierarchy of today's Rat Party,pure psychopaths as well.

“Measurement – Formal measurement of psychopathy is performed by a trained professional using Dr. Robert Hare’s Psychopathy Check List – Revised (PCL-R), consisting of twenty-one items such as pathological dishonesty, parasitic lifestyle, and irresponsibility. Not all of the items are required to assess a psychopathic condition.”

A few months ago there was an article about a very simple way of identifying a psychopath: Yawn. Most people will yawn when someone around them does it. That’s empathy. Since psychopaths lack empathy, they don’t have the same response. Of course, you can’t use that in a court of law, but it’s a good way to test people around you. You’ll know who to keep an eye on.

0bama also had no father figure and a mother who dragged him all over the place and then handed him off to his grand parents to raise. This is common to many political psychopaths.

Briefly – A psychopath is a person with a very nasty personality who builds a more attractive and very fake personality to cover his frauds, transgressions, and, sometimes, murders.

That would be Bill Cintoon and Warren Buffett

Rational – Psychopaths are quite rational. Psychopaths’ minds work no better and no worse than yours, except that psychopaths have a big void where most people have a conscience and moral values.

Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn

Mental Disorders – The primary indicators for psychopathy are anti-social personality disorder and malignant narcissism personality disorder, plus tendencies toward criminal behaviors and an inability to establish mature sexual relationships.

Barack Obama

Measurement – Formal measurement of psychopathy is performed by a trained professional using Dr. Robert Hare’s Psychopathy Check List – Revised (PCL-R), consisting of twenty-one items such as pathological dishonesty, parasitic lifestyle, and irresponsibility.

Tenured Liberal Professors

Control – Psychopaths want to control you – physically, emotionally, sexually, financially, and politically.

Michael Bloomberg and Michelle Obama

Occurrence – Psychopaths are thought to be about one percent of the population.

Can we say Academic and Government Elite?

Masks – There are few overt characteristics to distinguish a psychopath from the general population, within which the psychopath can easily blend.

Pretty much Politcians in General.

Causes – Neurological defect or injury is often associated with psychopathy, though some cases have no known causative factors.

They failed to mention certain STDs like Shyphillis, that can make things worse.

Flavors – By far, most psychopaths operate on a family and community level, destroying family relationships, committing crimes and misdemeanors, and rotating in and out of mental hospitals, jails, and prisons, and then back into the community.

Social Workers who will take away children from people for no good reason yet will let blatantly bad parents continue to hurt children.

Psychopath Enablers and Supporters – Family and local psychopath enablers are well-identified and can be researched on the internet.

Useful Idiots, Low Information Voters, this is why we need to educate chilren more about psychopaths.

Creativity – Creative psychopaths are often audacious and leave people surprised and off balance, as when Hitler invaded the Sudetenland or when Putin invaded Crimea.

Off Balance? The Scandal a day President Obama, probably thought up by Valerie Jarrett...

Tough Reputation – Beyond the items on Dr. Hare’s PCL-R, psychopaths cultivate a reputation for toughness, but that does not mean that they get good results.

Rahm Emanunuel who the article names, but also Chris Christie.

Recognizing Psychopathy – Many psychologists have different interpretations of conditions similar to psychopathy.

If you go to a used car dealership and if the saleperson is “too friendly” and that upsets you enough to leave and never return, congrats you have developed a spidey sense for sniffing out pshychopaths.

Failure – In practical terms, psychopaths always fail, and psychopathic failure creates misery for families, communities, and nations.

History is littered witht he remains of normal people killed by Psychopathic tyrants.

Ending Psychopathic Expression – Dr. Hare and associates are increasingly capable of identifying a psychopath at an early age.

Hopefully there will be a way to detect this as a brain disorder and find a way to treat those cursed with it and jail those who act upon psychopathic impulses.

You know what’s dangerous about that don’t you?
Yeah.
Like when the psychopaths are the ones in charge - and conservative thinking is held to be psychopathy (and punished as noted)...

Dang, good point.

But we certainly need to Jail those who act in unlawful ways whether they be psychopaths or not.

You state (correctly, imo) that
“Probably the #1 giveaway when it comes to psychopaths are their lack of authentic emotion...”

However, I differ with you a little @ the anger thing.

Their 2 primary “go-to” responses are
- rage (when their attempts to control are thwarted)
- hate (when the falsely-constructed mask slips & they are outed)

Their other ‘common presentation’ is sadness, often tending toward despair. It’s how they suck their victims in.

More in my profile :)
Cheers!

Yes - agreed, however,
that is why I have a quibble with fMRI’s & other supposedly “objective” means of measuring this.
I honestly don’t think that “control”, such as found in “Minority Report” would be that outlandish a concept, and not very far away, should we be led to RELY on them heavily (in making the diagnoses).

’ Lenin was not Russian, but Kalmyk and Turkic.’

It is nonsensical to make this claim. Lenin's ancestry displayed the quite common mixed ethnicity encountered in Russians. His father was a loyal and enegetic servant of the Czar and had worked himself up from modest origins to being officially ranked as minor nobility on the table of rank and precedence in the Russian Empire. The problem was he died fairly young and the mother and sisters absolutely worshiped the ‘brilliant’ and ‘genuiselike’ brothers. The eldest who ended on a gallows for plotting to assassinate the Czar and the younger Vladimir who displayed egomaniacal traits from early in his adolescence. Without the strong hand of his father to restrain him Lenin became a classic self worshiping malevolent narcissist. Unfortunately history gave him opportunities to live his megalomianaichal dreams.

Kansas’ own BTK killer Dennis Rader was a prime example of psychopathy. When you look at his work record, it becomes apparent that he chose jobs that put him in a position of control. In retrospect, it was no surprise that he abused his powers.

The United States Constitution.... is written down as block to psychopathy.....

Not identifying it; but given as a roadblock to it..

Almost every amendment to it, enabled some form of psychopathy.. maybe all of them..

To wit; currently the psychopaths are in control... and probably have been for decades.. maybe a century..

A percentage of “conservatives” are indeed psychopaths...

(good article)

II Tim. 3:1-5 gives a clinical description of the psychopathic/sociopathic personality.

Read those scriptures and then read Dr. Hares clinical description and get totally creeped out.

The Holy Spirit through the apostle Paul had their number long before anybody else.
