The Destructive President (psych evaluation of Barack Obama)
destructive president ^ | Oct 2012 | Dr. Paul Fick

The Destructive President

Welcome to my blog and the home of The Destructive President: Inside the Mind of Barack Obama. I am a clinical and forensic psychologist who is extremely concerned about the psychological status of the president and the impact of this upon the country. I firmly believe that Obama’s significant psychological problems are the driving force behind his desire to destroy America and her traditional institutions. After studying Obama for four years, I authored The Destructive President to provide a definitive explanation of Obama’s psychology so that Americans can once and for all understand why Obama is devastating America. Rush Limbaugh said that he believes Obama is filled with hate and that he is intentionally destroying America. Rush added that he is not a psychologist. Well, I am and The Destructive President explains why Obama is filled with hate, why his thinking is distorted by victim logic, and why Obama is directing his unrelenting rage at the country.

I hope that you will find The Destructive President to be enlightening even though the unmasking of Obama is not a pretty sight. We have a responsibility to be informed voters. It is my contention that anyone aware of Obama’s psychological problems would be hard pressed to support his destructive agenda. I welcome your thoughts and comments about the book and any questions you may have about the president and his destructive ways.

Video interview at site. I worked with Dr. Fick during the Clinton impeachment battle. He flew to DC to present evidence to the investigators about Clinton's perjury in the criminal trial of bankers Branscum and Hill. Unfortunately, the investigators did not get the info to Dave Schippers. When I spoke with Dave after the impeachment inquiry was concluded, he was livid that he was not told. He would have used it.

I have been saying since 2004 that Obama is on meds...and that his head is so screwed up, he has to use a monitor.

And ever notice these one on one interviews...he never answers a question...he adds his own and then his answer to his own question.

What’s Wrong with Obama?
By Robin of Berkeley

So what is the matter with Obama? Conservatives have been asking this question for some time. I’ve written a number of articles trying to solve the mystery.

Even some liberals are starting to wonder. James Carville railed about Obama’s blasé attitude after several catastrophic events, including the Ft Hood massacre, Colorado shooting and the oil spill. The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd revamped Obama’s “Yes We Can” motto into “Will We Ever?”

The liberal women of the TV show “The View” have expressed sympathy for Michelle Obama’s living with a man so out of touch. Peggy Noonan, hardly a vehement Obama foe, recently pronounced him disconnected.

Obama’s odd mannerisms intrigue a psychotherapist like me. He also presents a serious diagnostic challenge.

For one, Obama’s teleprompter and the men behind the Blackberry keep him well-scripted. We know so little about the facts of his life.

But it’s more than just a lack of information. Obama himself is a strange bird. He doesn’t fit easily into any diagnostic category.

Many people attribute Obama’s oddness to his narcissism. True, Obama has a gargantuan ego, and he is notoriously thin-skinned.

Yet a personality disorder like narcissism does not explain Obama’s strangeness: his giggling while being asked about the economy; his continuing a shout-out rather than announcing the Ft. Hood shootings; or his vacations, golfing, partying and fundraising during the calamitous oil spill.

Take also Obama’s declaring on the “Today Show” that he wants to know whose ass to kick. Consummate narcissists would never stoop to this vulgar display of adolescent machismo.

Obama is flat when passion is needed; he’s aggressive when savvy is required. What’s most worrisome is that Obama doesn’t even realize that his behavior is inappropriate.

So if it’s not just simple narcissism, what is wrong with Obama? Since I’ve never evaluated him, I can’t say for sure. But I can hazard some educated guesses.

If I saw a client as disconnected as him, the first thing I would wonder: Is something wrong with his brain? And I’d consider the following theoretical diagnostic possibilities.

Physical problems: There are a multitude of physiological conditions that can cause people to act strangely. For instance: head injuries, endocrine disturbances, epilepsy, and toxic chemical exposure.

It makes me wonder: Did Obama ever have a head injury? His stepfather in Indonesia was purportedly an alcoholic abuser. Was Obama subject to any physical abuse?

Drugs and alcohol: Damage to the brain from drugs and alcohol can also cause significant cognitive impairments. Obama once said that there were 57 states — and didn’t correct himself. Memory problems can be caused by both illicit and prescription drug use.

Obama admits to a history of drug use in his youth. Did his usage cause some damage? Does Obama still use?

Asperger’s Syndrome: Also known as high-functioning autism, Asperger’s causes deficits in social skills. A person with Asperger’s can’t read social cues. Consequently, he can be insensitive and hurtful without even knowing it.

Could Obama have Asperger’s? He might have some mild traits, but certainly not the full-blown disorder. In contrast to Obama, those with Asperger’s get fixated on some behavior, like programming computers. Obama lacks this kind of passion and zeal.

Mental Illness: Obama’s family tree is replete with the unbalanced. His maternal great-grandmother committed suicide. His grandfather, Stanley Dunham, was particularly unhinged: He was expelled from high school for punching his principal; named his daughter Stanley because he wanted a boy; and exposed young Barry to not just drunken trash talk, but unrestricted visits with alleged pedophile Frank Marshall Davis. Barack Sr. was an abusive, alcoholic bigamist. Since mental illness runs in the family, does Obama have any signs? Yes and no. No, he is not a schizophrenic babbling about Martians. But there are red flags for some other conditions.

While Obama doesn’t appear to hallucinate, he seems to have delusions. His believing he has a Messiah-like special gift smacks of grandiose delusions. His externalizing all blame to conservatives, George W. Bush, or the “racist” bogeyman hints at persecutory delusions.

Schizotypal disorder: Along with a delusional disorder, Obama may fit for a mild psychotic disorder called schizotypal disorder. It may explain some of Obama’s oddness.

People with schizotypal disorder hold bizarre beliefs, are suspicious and paranoid, and have inappropriate and constricted affect. They have few close friends and are socially awkward. A schizotypal is someone like your strange cousin Becky who is addicted to astrology, believes she is psychic, and is the oddball at social gatherings.

Schizotypal Disorder does ring some bells vis-à-vis Obama. One way the diagnosis doesn’t fit, however, is that schizotypals are generally harmless, odd ducks with a tremendous sensitive to the hurts of others. Not so with Obama.

Trauma: My gut tells me that Obama was seriously traumatized in childhood. His mother disregarded his basic needs, dragged him all over the place, and ultimately abandoned him.

But I think there may be something even more insidious in his family background. While I can’t prove it, the degree of Obama’s disconnect reminds me of my sexually abused clients.

With serious sexual abuse, the brain chemistry may change. The child dissociates — that is, disconnects from his being — in order to cope. Many adult survivors still dissociate, from occasional trances to the most extreme cases of multiple personality disorder.

Apparently, young Barry was left in the care of Communist Frank Marshall Davis, who admitted to molesting a 13-year-old girl. As a teenager, Obama wrote a disturbing poem, “Pop,” that evoked images of sexual abuse — for instance, describing dual amber stains on both his and “Pop’s” shorts.

Would trauma explain Obama’s disconnect? In many ways, yes. A damaged and unattached child may develop a “false self.” To compensate for the enormous deficits in identity and attachment, the child invents his own personality. For Obama, it may have been as a special, gifted person.

Let’s return now to my original question: What is wrong with Obama? My guess is a great deal. The answer is complex and likely includes some combination of the above.

Along with the brain issues are personality disorders: narcissism, paranoia, passive-aggressiveness. There’s even the possibility of the most destructive character defect of all, an antisocial personality. Untreated abuse can foster antisocial traits, especially among boys.

If my assessment is accurate, what does this mean?

It means that liberals need to wake up and spit out the Kool-Aid. It also means that Obama must be carefully scripted. When off of the telepromter, some of his true personality and thoughts may come out. (See the “You didn’t do that” speech in which Obama spoke without teleprompter.)

Because Obama will not change; he will not learn from his mistakes. He will not grow and mature from on-the-job experience. In fact, over time, Obama (child abuse/trauma victims) will likely become a more ferocious version of who he is today.

Why? Because this is a damaged person. Obama’s fate was sealed years ago growing up in his strange and poisonous family. Later on, his empty vessel was filled with the hateful bile of men like Rev. Wright, Frank Marshall Davis and Bill Ayers.

Obama will not evolve; he will not rise to the occasion; he will not become the man he was meant to be. This is for one reason and one reason alone: He is not capable of it.

This article is not intended to offer any definitive diagnoses, but for educational purposes only.

A STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE When Obama campaigned in 2008, he proclaimed “I am running for president to tell the lobbyists in Washington that their days of setting the agenda are over. They have not funded my campaign. They won’t work in my White House.” Despite this promise, Obama hired over 50 lobbyists in his administration.

Now, self-serving Pres Obama has had a change of heart----he uses the US Treasury as an open checkbook for his supporters who are rewarded at taxpayers’ expense.

But wait ---Obama says he wants everyone to “play by the same rules.” (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)

EXHIBIT A-—Obama vetoed the Canadian pipeline, causing a loss of thousands of construction jobs——that benefited his biggest financial supporters, Warren Buffett, who just happened to buy an interest in the railroad that will deliver the oil instead of the pipeline.

EXHIBIT B-—Obama’s Defense Department rejected a multibillion-dollar aircraft contract to a U.S. manufacturing company and instead awarded it to a Brazilian company in which the same fundraiser has an interest.

EXHIBIT C-—Another Obama fundraiser benefited from a $528 million taxpayer loan for Solyndra which promptly went bankrupt, leaving the taxpayers with massive losses(contrary to standard lending practices, Obama’s supporters, not the taxpayers, had the only claim to the firm’s assets. Can you say money laundering?). Not to mention other so-called “green companies” controlled by Obama supporters who received taxpayer loans and proceeded to go bust.

EXHIBIT D-—Obama halted Gulf oil drilling in violation of court orders. Do workers forced out of their jobs think he was playing by the rules?

EXHIBIT E-—Michelle Obama received a $100,000 raise at her Chicago nonprofit job shortly after then-Senator Obama obtained generous government assistance for her employer.......some might call this money laundering.

===========================================

When Obama ran for office in 2008, many people believed he was a brilliant academic who would lead to bring people together.

But a new book "Leading From Behind" by Richard Miniter, shows just the opposite. Miniter paints a picture of an Obama who doesn't lead at all, but instead is used as a pawn through which his many advisers push their own political agendas.

Take for example White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett. President Obama takes credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden while he hides Jarrett's efforts to stop the operation three times before finally giving the green light. "

At the White House, Obama advisers were told to 'interrogate the data' to disprove that bin Laden was in the compound," Miniter writes. "Eventually, a 'war caucus' emerged with Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, and Robert Gates favoring action of some kind. Jarrett opposed the idea.

Jarrett worried about a backlash against the president if the operation failed, or even if it succeeded." Obama was willing to cave to Jarrett's "concerns" on multiple occasions until Hillary stepped in with full force to urge Obama to move forward with the bin Laden raid. But of course, Obama's eventual decision to lead from behind on the raid, didn't come without some "hard thinking."

On the fourth attempt to either capture or kill bin Laden, the intelligence was better than ever, yet as Miniter writes, Obama still had Jarrett's doubtful words in the back of his mind. (Excerpt) Read more at townhall.com ...

He’s proved that many times over the last four years,he’s a dangerous for the country.

The answer to obama is pretty simple. He was hired as an actor to play the public role of president, not to actually BE the president. He knows more about sports and American Idol than he does about anything that is happening around him. Someone else sets the agenda and tells him what to say and do. Meanwhile he has all the perks of the presidency at his beck and call and he uses them ALL for his own pleasure.

This is precisely why he is such a draw to the libtards; they can relate!

Dinesh D'Souza basically came up with the same conclusions, and those conclusions were reached via sound research using Obama's own words and interviews with his family and friends.

Besides hatred of America based on his Communist enablers, there is another, darker, more insidious hatred driving Obama.

He is a homosexual.

Talk to any homosexual for a period of time, and what eventually emerges is rage, shame, and hatred.

Bingo, and covers it with narcissism, worship followers and a hand picked beard to complete the facade. Obama is as fake as those Denver greek columns he surrounded himself with and just as flimsy.

When the first debate began BHO was
jittery, agitated & keyed up in his demeanor.

By the end, an hour later or so,
he was flaccid, dull, vapid and vacuous .

What ever drug he was given had worn off.

Expect more of the same tonight.

This guy is an empty suit whose only skill
set is reading the TOTUS.

That is probably very true in A LOT of cases. But in all honesty, I come from a very dysfunctional upbringing and it's left anxiety with me to this day, so I do feel sympathy for child Obama. Especially if he was molested. That's horrific on any child, but must be especially devastating for a boy to have it happen coming from a man. But what I don't understand is how adult Obama's anger and hatred aren't seen even by those on the left. It's so plain to me. No warmth and love do I see from this man at all and his deep psychological issues are going to have an impact on millions of people for many generations.

I undestand your initial point. However, the left will use any means to achieve their goal. They aren’t all stupid, but selfish and greedy. They know he is simply a tool, will use him until his utility is spent, then toss him. While sad, I will not lose any sleep over any liberal no matter who athey are or how they arrived.

Don’t misunderstand. I’m not losing any sleep over adult Obama or leftists regarding their well being. I want him gone yesterday. I never wanted him in the first place. I knew he was bad news back in 2004 when he was running for Senate against Keyes, but especially became aware of him more when all the talk and awe started gaining momentum in 2006. But as far as child Obama, I do have some sympathy for that person that existed. That person that was born into a family of radicals. They created an angry, political monster and generations to come will be paying the price for THEIR psychological pathologies. So he’s Frankenstein. I can have some sympathy about how he came into existence, but now that he’s here and destroying people, he has to be stopped.

thought you might be interested in this....

Sad, isn't it? But I must say that many historic figures who have "exceeded expectations" in one direction or another have had active maladjustments. We can take this man at face value: his values are destructive because they are shallow and illogical. His use of victimology is based on an unreality. No one -- no one -- can legislate a "level playing field" or "a fair shot for everyone." To do so is inherently illogical. Why would even a first-grade teacher want to harness the brightest kids in the class to the learning disabled, insisting that they all move at the same rate? To do so is to introduce chaos and rebellion by the kids who are smarter than she is. And why would the same teacher want to harness the fate of the average kids to that of the less-able, or the gifted? To do so is to damage their precious "self-esteem."

That is a micro example. The same principles apply in the body politic as a whole: we cannot afford to lash the gifted together with the "ballast" economically. We must allow gifted people to strive for greater rewards, and take them home at the same time that their efforts benefit many others whom they employ or patronize. We must allow persons who are best suited to be the assistants and mechanics and caretakers of their fellow men in the workplace, in communities, in the neighborhoods and places of worship, with the full complement of dignity any sincere work effort deserves, and the rewards of close-knit community life, religious affiliation and marriage to be foremost in their lives. Most importantly, we must preserve the dignity of those who deliver social value in the home -- as direct caretakers of children and elders.

We are all created differently for different purposes in society. And as has been demonstrated, God can use even evil persons or their deeds to accomplish good outcomes. But it takes God's timetable, not our timetable. Therefore I concede that the damage the Obama administration is doing will last for generations, as have the damages done by the Hitler and FDR regimes.

My proposed solution is this, and I hope many other FReepers will accept and implement this commission: we conservatives need to equip ourselves to perform missionary work in our own nation, whether for the religion of our Founders or for the "Civil Religion" they created based on Judeo-Christian principles. Whole generations have been wasted by the current evil nightmare. Only if we learn our own scriptures, our history and the intended social benefits of the American project can we hope to inform young people in a way that will inspire them to restore our republic.

Our system was designed for a self-governing people whose morality is established within them, requiring little government from outside them. It has extended so much freedom to so many, now including waves of immigrants who have not been expected to learn these principles, that we have allowed our incompletely formed children and youth to be pushed off the edges of freedom into self-destruction.

No freedom can be sustained without self-discipline. It will be up to us who still have some to pull this nation away from its media devices and back to work together.
