Article at AAPS on Obama's use of hypnosis in his speeches has been scrubbed (vanity)
1/22/2011

Posted on 01/23/2011 3:39:49 PM PST by SonOfDarkSkies

Back on October 25, 2008, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons published an article on Obama's use of neurolinguistic programming in his speeches entitled "Oratory—or hypnotic induction?" I thought it worth mentioning to you guys that I discovered today that the article in question had been scrubbed from AAPS archives. The title is still listed in the AAPS archives, but the article itself is gone.

An article entitled "An Examination of Obama’s Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches" is quite similar to the one in question and as of this writing has not yet been scrubbed from the internet. Anyone interested in this subject should make a personal copy.

Whether or not a person puts stock in such thinking, I thought it worth mentioning that Obama or one of his minions apparently believed the article sufficiently damaging that it took steps to deprive the public from considering the analysis presented.

Very interesting stuff. IIRC Obama took tapes of Jeremiah Wright’s sermons with him to Hahhvahd so that he might study them in his spare time. Obviously he wasn’t studying Wright’s theology...he must have been studying Wright’s technique.

No, no... its that sort of hiss sound the ship Capt. to Engine Room “hose communicator” thingy made that geo. sorass uses to put the words in nobama’s mouth.

Besides how and WHY would anyone listen to nobama enough to hear him hissing???

That’s an interesting thread, dated back when the AAPS article was published in ‘08. Thx for the ping.

I remember watching Oprah with this lady on who would tell the audience to breathe at regular intervals. (Why would someone need commands to do what they are already doing naturally?) It was really obvious to me what was going on but the audience totally bought it.

Is part of this technique the reverberation that is always present when he gives a speech?

From the beginning, in the 2008 election campaign, and ever since, I never could make it past the opening minute or two of ANY of his speeches - it was a non-rational sense I have. Now I know why.

Two options, you choose: (1) we be hypmotized by Da One; (2) His speeches are utterly banal and inherently contradictory

He ends all sentences with an “s” sound and whistles it. Listen closely, next time. Seriously."

Can you point us to some sample text?

Also, if you can stand to listen to about two minutes of this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWe7wTVbLUU

and I think this was a speech given about two years ago, he whistles quite a bit in the first two minutes. He doesn’t do it at the end of every sentence that ends with an “s” but he does it quite often.

As an aside, what a bunch of blather. It’s impossible to believe over two million people have listened to this YouTube video of his pablum.

Everything he does contributes to the effectiveness of the technique...the sound reverberation, the halo lighting, the overwhelming use of messianic iconography, the Berlin speech at the Victory Column (he wanted Brandenberg Gate), the Pergamon Altar (Throne of Satan) setting in Denver, the actually language of his speeches (vague utopian terminology), etc, etc...

"Wasn’t something like this what Jared Loughner meant in his ramblings about “grammar”?". . .

[Who other than Loughner would know what he meant ... the guy is quite disturbed.]

I thought he was referencing 'Spanglish'. No question he was disturbed; but his threads rolled from a spool. Just as his disturbed proclivities unrolled from a identifiable Leftism.

Yes, a real snake charmer, for sure. He scared the heck out of me the first time I saw him. (2004 DNC speech).

If you heard him; you knew he was going to be the 'force' America would soon reckon with.

AN EXAMINATION OF OBAMA’S USE OF HIDDEN HYPNOSIS TECHNIQUES IN HIS SPEECHES  EXPOSING OBAMA’S DECEPTION MAY BE THE ONLY WAY TO PROTECT DEMOCRACY

An Examination of Obama’s Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches 
THE EVIDENCE IS HERE: This document contains over 60 pages of evidence  and analysis proving Barack Obama’s use of a little-known and highly deceptive  and manipulative form of “hack” hypnosis on millions of unaware Americans and reveals what only a few psychologists and hypnosis/NLP experts know.

It is good for that, but I'm not in the sales biz so haven't used it in that way.

“Can a person who has been successfully subjected to NLP be, for lack of a better term, reverse engineered to determine what post-hypnotic suggestions, triggers, and commands were planted and by what specific means (pacing, anchors, etc)?”

Yes, I do that all the time to heal inadvertant programming.

“Do you think that mass hypnosis has the same effect as cult induction (i.e. are the subjects instructed to unconsciously avoid thinking, reality, self-analysis, idol criticism, etc).”

Yes, while some of the techniques vary between group and individual application, they are the same principles.

Yes, the cadences. It is the reason that the marching orders are used in boot camp to get recruits to follow orders. It’s also the reson that rap music has such an influence over its listeners.

Why do you think he is addicted to the teleprompter. This is all pre programmed.

Given that, it seems Obama is directing both barrels of this shotgun at the American public. And that might explain his remarkable success as evidenced by his creation of what we conservatives call the 'Kool-Ade intoxicated' crowd.

Knowing you are a professional, I would love to get your opinion on the behavior of this crowd vis-a-vis their complete reliance on character assassination and their assiduous avoidance of anything like rational thinking, logic, and empirical reasoning. It has been my experience that cults are conditioned to check their minds and consciences at the door (i.e. relegate their minds to group leaders).

Does it seem to you that this is what we are witnessing in the Left's purely emotional (limbic) attacks on conservatives who oppose Obama ("racists, teabaggers, etc.") and in blaming them for the Tucson shooting for example?

My policy is to never listen to Obama’s speeches. I’ve never heard more than a few sentences of any speech he’s given. Same with Clinton, and especially Hillary. There are some people you just instinctively know are lying with every word they speak. Why give them my precious time? If I want to know what some politician said, I can read the transcript.

My knowledge vs his world view and his political view was, by themselves, enough to make me change the channel within the first 30 seconds of any speech he’s made (to keep my blood pressure in check). But, there was something else - something reason alone could not qualify - in his oration, that I could never put my finger on, that just said to me that this guy was - in his speeches - 100 times slicker than “Slick Willy” ever hoped to be.
