  • Hillary Clinton Insists on Mega Rich Lifestyle, $39 Mill Private Jet Minimum to Travel, Sociopath?

    08/17/2014 12:17:53 PM PDT · by ScamFix · 20 replies
    The Las Vegas Review-Journal, through the state public records law, has found that Hillary Clinton insists on extreme luxury and extreme control, when she speaks, on top of her fees. Their article is quite eye-opening. While Clinton claims to be a believer in the CO2 Global Warming movement, that wants average people to reduce their “carbon footprint”, through lower living standards and less jobs, for herself she insists on the opposite. She insists, in writing, that she is given free, a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 or larger private jet to travel to a speech. The carbon dioxide footprint is...

    CNN: the home for hate-filled rants against conservatives. On the July 16 edition of New Day, a panel reacted to Jake Tapper’s testy interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney. Democratic strategist and CNN contributor Paul Begala became unhinged, resorting to personal attacks on Cheney in response to his explanations of the Iraq war. Asked by host Kate Bolduan as to why Cheney is speaking out right now – as if the chaos in Iraq didn’t make that self-evident – Begala snapped: “Well, either he's a secret plant from my party, reminding people of an administration that they hated.

Tim Geithner, the former US Treasury secretary and one-time head of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, wants to be seen as one of the guys who got the financial system out of trouble. It wasn’t easy, he admits. And it wasn’t always neat. In fact, you might even call it messy. And — oh, my! — Geithner suffered for his efforts. He’s still suffering today. And you’ll understand this more fully if you cough up $25 for his new book. Tradition dictates that I give the book’s title and the publisher at this point....

The reason I ask this question is that 99 percent of the novels has a hero and villian with the hero winning at the end. And the hero usually wins at the end because he/she can see and know what is bigger than themselves. They achieve by sacrificing certain things in order to achieve...

    Only moments after the Senate advanced an emergency extension of unemployment insurance benefits on Tuesday, President Obama stood on an East Room stage full of people without jobs and defied the traditional logic of White House strategy that normally emphasizes good news over bad. The president, who sought to dramatize the need for Congress to extend the benefits, delivered what amounts to his broader economic message for 2014: Despite an improving economy, too many people are being left behind. The tableau demonstrated the challenge for Mr. Obama as he seeks to advertise the financial recovery while arguing for action to...

Case in point: On Tuesday, a woman in New York found occasion for a selfie when she witnessed a man attempting to commit suicide by jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge, according to the New York Post. The paper took a photo of the selfie in progress, and splashed it on the front page with the headline "SELFIE-ISH!" (The Post reports that the...

    Oprah is misleading a lot of people with her wacky views on Christianity. She claims to be a Christian, but her beliefs are indeed, very flawed. Recently I saw a clip of her talking about Jesus and she said Jesus did not come to die on the cross; that his meaning here was for the “Christ Consciousness,” whatever that means. I’m guessing she means he came here to teach us how to act, how to live and how to be Christ like. That’s all very nice and comforting and eliminates the need for a savior.

    WASHINGTON — The implicit promise of Barack Obama’s presidency, delivered during the 2008 campaign and again repeatedly since then, was that government would not face a debacle like the recent malfunction of the technology behind the president’s new health care marketplaces. In his biggest and most important speeches, the president often talks with passion about a “smarter, more effective government.” He has called on Congress to embrace and pay for a “21st century government that’s open and competent.” And he has vowed to work to “rebuild people’s faith in the institution of government.”

    President Obama has been playing golf at a furious pace this year – already heading out more times than during any year of his presidency – but the government shutdown raises the prospect that his favorite leisure activity is about to be suspended. It’s unclear how a presidential golf outing could be justified as “essential,” which is the general standard for government activities that continue during the shutdown. When Obama is in Washington, he plays at one of two publicly funded courses – either the links at Andrews Air Force Base or at Fort Belvoir. His rounds are paid for...

As Filner is expected to enter a behavioral facility for two weeks of treatment many San Diegans continue to call for his resignation. Still, the mayor refuses to resign. “Shame would’ve driven him to resign immediately,” said La Jolla psychologist Dr. Sage Breslin.“I certainly think his bravado indicates he doesn’t have empathy or compassion.” She focused on Filner’s apology and called it insincere. “He was smiling when...

    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...

    10 signs for spotting a sociopath #1) Sociopaths are charming. Sociopaths have high charisma and tend to attract a following just because people want to be around them. They have a "glow" about them that attracts people who typically seek guidance or direction. #2) Sociopaths are more spontaneous and intense than other people. They tend to do bizarre, sometimes erratic things that most regular people wouldn't do. They are unbound by normal social contracts. Their behavior often seems irrational or extremely risky. #3) Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process...

    Sociopathy is a complex personality disorder. Sociopaths exhibit a wide variety of maladaptive behavior which makes the condition difficult to diagnose. Sociopathy is not one trait; it is a syndrome—a cluster of related symptoms. Sociopaths have a narcissistic and grossly inflated view of their self-worth and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement. They see themselves as the center of the universe, as superior beings who are justified in living according to their own rules. Sociopaths are seldom embarrassed about their legal, financial or personal problems. Rather, they see them as temporary setbacks, the results of bad luck,...

He would be a “good voice in the party” for their cause, and his moderation on the issue would be “widely...

That talent was displayed just this week when he was asked whether he thought the Supreme Court would uphold ObamaCare as constitutional or strike it down as unconstitutional. He replied: "I'm confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress." But how unprecedented would it actually be if...

    A Southern California man who allegedly killed a miniature 6-pound dog by teeing off on the Chihuahua with a golf club has been charged with felony animal cruelty. Larry Jaurequi, 58, faces up to four years in jail if convicted, Riverside County prosecutors said. A police report states Jaurequi swung the club against the little dog, named Lily, "as if driving a ball off its tee." "The force of the swing sent the animal flying through the air. The suspect was preparing for a second swing when he was stopped by people that had just witnessed his acts," Sgt. Sergio...

    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...

    Barack Obama called Saturday for an end to insults and demands in the negotiations over the debt ceiling, after they broke down Friday night. In his weekly address, ahead of an emergency meeting at the White House Saturday morning, the president said that the government had spent more money than it takes in for year and result was "a lot of debt on our nation's credit card." This debt would "weaken our economy, cause higher interest rates for families, and force us to scale back things like education and Medicare" unless action was taken, Obama said. "Now, folks in Washington...

    If senior journalist David Goldman is right, the correct word for describing the way a growing number of US Jews feel about President Barack Obama is not 'anger' but 'rage' – white-hot rage, at that, and a conviction that they have been swindled. Goldman, Senior Editor of First Things magazine and 'Spengler' columnist for Asia Times Online, spoke last week at a convention on intellectuals and terror at Ariel University in Samaria. In his lecture, he quoted a top Jewish campaign donor who used the word 'sociopath' to describe Obama. In an interview with Israel National News, he predicted a...

    Disgraced politician John Edwards is said to be deeply depressed - to the point of being suicidal - over the prospect of a criminal trial that could end with him being jailed if found guilty. The 57-year-old former Presidential candidate reportedly told a close friend: 'I won't go to jail. I'd kill myself first!' He has lost 20lb in the last year and is a 'broken spirit,' reports the National Enquirer. According to the Enquirer, a close source said: 'I think John is suicidal. He knows that if he's indicted, prosecutors will try to get him to serve jail time...
  • DR. KEITH ABLOW: A Psychiatrist's Advice for President Obama

    President Obama’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday night symbolically kicked off the 2012 Presidential campaign. I tuned in with what psychiatrists call a “third ear”—listening to myself listening, polling my gut for when it alerted me to true or false notes. In my office, it is this “third ear” that allows me to ask questions that get past a person’s more superficial stories, to the heart of that person. In other words, I was paying as much attention to whether I sensed the President believed what he was saying, as to whether I agreed with what he was...
