  • Why Hillary Can't Be in the Moment

    American Thinker ^ | April 18, 2015 | Deborah C. Taylor
    Watching Hillary Clinton reach out and touch ordinary Americans is excruciating. In working a crowd of regular folks, Hillary is fingernails on the blackboard in a pantsuit. It is difficult to imagine anyone more out of touch with her own affect, movement, and connection to the people around her. She is unable to talk, touch, listen or smile in a natural manner. She doesn't seem to know what to do with her hands, where to direct her eyes, her scope of awareness is restricted. A blind person with a stick would be better than Hillary Clinton at reading people around...

    A new profile in GQ magazine quotes presidential hopeful Ben Carson likening President Barack Obama to a psychopath. In the piece for the magazine’s April 2015 issue, Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and conservative darling, reacted to Obama’s State of the Union address. Carson’s business manager said the president looks good, and Carson responded by likening the president to a “psychopath.” “Like most psychopaths,” Carson grumbled. “That’s why they’re successful. That’s the way they look. They all look great.”

    It is safe to say that most politicians these days could be diagnosed with a range of mental conditions, and many would likely be labeled sociopaths or psychopaths. The terms psychopath and sociopath are often used interchangeably, even by mental health professionals. The symptoms are somewhat consistent between the two: lack of conscience, no moral compass, manipulative, low range of emotions, interpersonally insensitive. The psychopath is deadly. He is well spoken, charismatic, fearless, controlling, socially potent, a habitual liar, calm to a disturbing degree in the face of chaos and cold hearted. He is a master at blaming others. David...

    Over the years, we have been struck repeatedly by how often President Obama is wrong. Not how often we disagree with him, but how often he is just plain wrong, on matters of history, science and so on. Obama has a blithe willingness to assert false propositions of fact, apparently without fear of correction. I suppose that is because the Democratic press has little incentive to point out his errors. Let’s note two instances from a single town hall appearance in South Carolina yesterday. The first related to climate. Obama, while defending his Keystone veto, said: The pattern overall is...

    This time eight years ago, Barack Obama and his staff were in the final stages of preparing to launch a presidential campaign. So was pretty much everyone else. The midterms were done, the opposition party had ridden a wave to a wipe-out. The political world was already looking past President George W. Bush. Obama was leading the charge. On Friday, Obama stood at the podium at the White House and dared anyone to try the same with him. “Interesting stuff happens in the fourth quarter. And I’m looking forward to it,” Obama said, at the outset of the 2014 wrap-up...

    In an article published by the Guardian, Jess Zimmerman suggested that all men should be murdered. In the same article, she stated that prejudice against men is a good thing. The article, called “No, we don’t literally want to ban men. But 2014 was the year women got even,” begins with a sarcastic opening paragraph mocking males. It quickly descends further into madness. In the second paragraph, Zimmerman states that “misandry (the hatred of men) had a big year, too, but it looked a little different. For us, it was a tool to help create a less oppressive future.” Zimmerman...

    A 10-year-old boy who's been in an adult jail since authorities say he fatally beat a 90-year-old woman two months ago is scared, lonely and misses his mother, his public defender said. The boy, one of the youngest ever to face an adult homicide charge in Pennsylvania, met with family through a glass partition when he was first brought to the county lockup in rural northeastern Pennsylvania. More recently, he was permitted to have physical contact with them, according to the attorney, Scott Bennett. "So his mom can give him a hug," he said this week. The beating occurred Oct....

    Top 10 psychopathic professions: CEO, lawyer — then media, twice By Cheryl K. Chumley The Washington Times Friday, March 21, 2014 More psychopaths are CEOs than any other profession, according to an author who spent time researching the common denominators between successful people and sanity. Psychopaths aren't necessarily ax murderers, as Time noted. The clinical diagnosis refers to those who have shallow emotions or who lack empathy and guilt, are coldhearted, superficial, manipulative, impulsive or irresponsible. And with that definition, it seems the corporate world has its fair share. In what's been billed as one of the most overlooked books...

    Canadian researchers have confirmed what most people suspected all along: that internet trolls are archetypal Machiavellian sadists. In a survey conducted by the group of psychologists, people who partake in so-called trolling online showed signs of sadism, psychopathy, and were Machiavellian in their manipulation of others and their disregard for morality. The researchers defined online trolling as “the practice of behaving in a deceptive, destructive, or disruptive manner in a social setting on the Internet” for no purpose other than their pleasure. …

    SEATTLE (AP) — President Barack Obama offered a rare self-assessment Sunday night while criticizing congressional Republicans as an “impediment” to governing during the start of a West Coast fundraising tour for the Democratic Party. He also attempted to contrast himself with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, saying they are “more focused on positioning themselves for the next election.” “I’m not a particularly ideological person,” Obama said, somewhat echoing a statement he made earlier this month during a speech campaigning for then-candidate for Virginia governor, Terry McAuliffe (“There are very real consequences when you operate ideologically, the way some...

    We’re all a teensy bit mad, but how many true psychopaths do we have among us? Apparently, more than you think. “Psychopathy is a personality disorder that has been variously described as characterized by shallow emotions (in particular reduced fear), stress tolerance, lacking empathy, coldheartedness, lacking guilt, egocentricity, superficial character, manipulativeness, irresponsibility, impulsivity, and antisocial behaviors such as parasitic lifestyle and criminality,” explains Eric Barker, in The Week. Now, think about all the people who might fit that description. Then, compare it to the list psychologist Kevin Dutton compiled in The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers...

    Obama’s first two presidential debates with Romney gave us another look deep into his mind – into a continued confession which he simply cannot stop himself from making. From my experience as a forensic profiler, I know when a guilty person starts to break. Law enforcement describes how guilty suspects show signs of cracking during an interrogation – and they push on those weaknesses. We can view Obama’s poor performance during the first presidential debate with Romney on Oct. 3 in a similar way. The debate – a symbolic interrogation – was the first time Obama had faced tough questions...

    Answer--Very gently. Chris Duane and Kerry Lutz sit down for a discussion of psychopaths and what to do about them. We've all probably encountered them at work, in government, in friendships or perhaps even had a relationship with one. Chris explains how to identify them and what you can do. Sometimes it's best to flee. Other times confrontation works and then perhaps the most effective method is simply ignoring them. It all depends upon the situation you find yourself in. But whatever you do, you must get away from them if at all possible. The history of politics and government...

The depositions of Dr. Jeffrey Danziger and Dr. William Weitz vividly describe what Anthony told her doctors about alleged sexual abuse by her father and the alleged drowning death of her 2-year-old daughter in the summer of 2008. The experts' statements are significant because they represent the most recent version of Anthony's story about what happened...

Professor Julian Savulescu of Melbourne made the statement while commenting on an economic modeling research paper by Oxford University ethicists Andres Sandberg and Nick Bostrom, who claim that a rise in humanity’s IQ would result in a reduction in poverty, welfare dependency, crowding of jails, school dropout rates, out-of-wedlock births, and...

They graduated together in 1987, Williams, 46, with a politics and economics degree, Bernardo, 45, with a commerce and economics degree. Their families both lived along the Scarborough bluffs. Now police sources tell the Toronto Sun the two were college “pals” who “partied” together and that their relationship is the subject of intense scrutiny by the joint forces team probing the murders of Cpl. Marie-France Comeau and Jessica Lloyd.

    Amy Bishop, neuroscientist, inventor, murder suspect, has become bigger than life, a symbol for those who think that genius is close to madness, or that women cannot get ahead in science, or that tenure systems in universities are brutalizing — or even that progress against fatal diseases is so important that someone like Dr. Bishop should be set free to pursue cures. At least that is what emerges from hundreds of comments on the Internet about Dr. Bishop, the assistant professor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville charged with shooting six colleagues — three of them fatally — at...

    Scientists have long searched for a biological basis for psychopathy, a behavioral disorder attributed to chronic immorality. While previous studies have found no clear evidence, Professor Declan Murphy of the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London believes he has found an area of the brain that is decidedly different in a psychopath as compared to a normal person. It is unsurprising that much of the research to date has focused on the amygdale (the part of the brain involved with emotions and aggression) and the orbitofrontal cortex (which deals in decision making). However, an unstudied area is the uncinate...

    The Talented Mr. Madoff By JULIE CRESWELL and LANDON THOMAS Jr. /snip An easy answer is that Mr. Madoff was a charlatan of epic proportions, a greedy manipulator so hungry to accumulate wealth that he did not care whom he hurt to get what he wanted. But some analysts say that a more complex and layered observation of his actions involves linking the world of white-collar finance to the world of serial criminals. They wonder whether good old Bernie Madoff might have stolen simply for the fun of it, exploiting every relationship in his life for decades while studiously manipulating...

    Rahm the Enforcer 12/28/08 In Washington, where big personalities create even bigger legends, Democrat Rahm Emanuel has achieved mythic status. He throws cells phones. He once sent a dead fish to a pollster who displeased him. At a dinner to celebrate Bill Clinton’s 1992 election, Emanuel repeatedly stabbed the table with a steak knife, shouting the names of his political enemies. Journalists have trouble quoting him, because his routine utterances are replete with profanity.“Rahm is a little intense,” Barack Obama once said.As even Emanuel concedes, “I wake up some mornings hating me, too.”Emanuel’s political intensity has a darker side. His...

    An abortionist who claims to have destroyed more than 20,000 unborn children and who once was Hillary Clinton's OB-GYN says he is doing "God's work" when he terminates a pregnancy. "Embryos and fetuses spontaneously aborted – most, but not all of those 'canceled' by 'God' – are ... luckless human souls," wrote William Harrison, referring to an ancient poem describing the plight of mankind. "But a few spontaneous abortions occur in desired pregnancies with no discernable abnormalities. For those girls and women and their families whose circumstances would make their babies 'luckless human souls,' I 'cancel' them before they become...

But although many serial killers are sociopaths, there are far more sociopaths leading ordinary lives. Chances are you know a sociopath. I say "ordinary lives," but what they do is far from ordinary. Sociopaths are people without a conscience. They don't have the normal empathy the rest of us take for granted. They don't feel affection. They don't care about others. But most of them are good observers, and they have learned how...

    It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton views herself as a member of the God Squad, divinely anointed to shepherd the masses to greater gender consciousness. “Hillary acts as though she has been chosen by God,” recounts Edward Klein, author of The Truth about Hillary. “I find her to be among the most self-righteous people I’ve ever known,” explains former New York Times reporter Bob Boorstin. And during her senate campaign Hillary glowed approvingly whenever Black preachers declared her “a woman of God.” But how many persons know how Mrs. Clinton’s messianic streak may lead to her political undoing? During her...

    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday that calling the families of the campaign staffers taken hostage at her Rochester, N.H., office last week was the most difficult part of the ordeal. "Those were the most emotional moments, I have to tell you, calling them in the first instants to tell them what had happened," she told reporters after a campaign stop in eastern Iowa. Clinton said that while it was a traumatic experience for her staffers, "they performed magnificently under pressure." "They were cool, they looked out for one another," the Democratic presidential candidate said. "They kept...
