Our computer was down for several days so now we are trying to catch up on our e-mail.I just read one that I felt was very interesting/worth sharing. This is the first time I've heard anyone call one of our two main stream presidential candidates a narcissist but I think the author is on to something here. I hope you will read and think about it between now and November 4, 2008.
"Please read all of this.
I have spent a lot of time studying Obama over the last few weeks.
I read all of the 300 page book "The Obama Nation" by Jerome Corsi.
Mr. Corsi- whom I have spoken with and trust- started researching Barack in 2005
after he heard him speak at the 2004 Democratic Convention.
I believe his book as well as many other sources I have researched in
these last weeks substantiates that which Ali Sina -who I do not know- has
I realize that this information may make some of you not like me as much any more,
but I believe that our great nation is at maybe the most dangerous cross-road
she has been at since her birth. I believe it is so serious that we must ALL
take a stand. I don't pretend to know Barack's heart , but I have checked his
record and acquaintences and to me he is just plain scary.
It is OUR watch and we will answer to our future generations as to what we allowed.
I'm reminded of the saying "All that has to happen for evil to prevail is for good
men to do nothing". Let's not be found doing nothing.
The last generation was not exposed in school to the teachings that most of
us were so we owe it to them to give them our input before they vote. For us all
to just silently vote and go no farther could be a travesty.
May God save the Republic,

Subject: Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuehrer
I urge everyone to read this all the way down and to pay very close
attention to the last paragraph.
Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuehrer
By Ali Sina
I must confess, I was not impressed by Sen. Barack Obama from the first
I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked
youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident, a wholesome presidential
package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but
because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was
His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words.
speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American
Never a politician in this land had such a quasi "religious" impact on
many people. The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero
accomplishment makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is
ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact, he is quite ignorant on most
important subjects. Barack Obama is a narcissist. Dr. Sam Vaknin, the
of "Malignant Self Love," also believes, "Barack Obama appears to be a
Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism. He understands it and
the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person. When he talks about
narcissism everyone listens. Vaknin says that Obama's language, posture
demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, nearest and dearest
that the Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic
personality disorder (NPD).
Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves. Jim
the charismatic leader of People's Temple, the man who led over 900 of
followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their own
children was also a narcissist. Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko
Joe Stalin, Saddam, Mao Zedong, Kim Jong IL, and Adolph Hitler are a few
examples of narcissists of our time. All these men had a tremendous
influence over their fanciers and followers. They created a personality
around themselves, and with their blazing speeches elevated their
souls, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds
new zest for life. Those men gave their followers hope! They promised
the moon, but alas, they invariably brought them to their doom. When you
a victim of a cult of personality, you don't know it until it is too
One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhood abuse.
"Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and
mentally bruising dislocations," says Vaknin. "Mixed-race marriages were
even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an
infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before he
in a car accident. His mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to
Indonesia, a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised
a stepfather. He was raised as an only child, full of himself and no
He never had to share the spotlight with any siblings. At the age of
was whisked off to live with his maternal (white) grandparents. He saw
mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she
from his life in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995."
One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological
narcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it
those around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people
like clay in his hands. They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be
his service. The narcissist shapes the world around him and reduces
in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of personality; his
become his co-dependents.
Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach
personal objectives. They are focused on one thing alone, and that is
All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste
precious time on trivialities. Anything that does not help them is
them and does not deserve their attention. If an issue raised in the
does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it. The
"Present" vote is a safe vote; he used the "Present" all the time as a
member of the Illinois legislature. No one can criticize him if things
wrong. Why should he implicate himself in issues that may become
controversial when they don't help him personally? Those issues are
by their very nature because they are not about him.
Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review
to a contract and an advance to write a book about race relations. The
University of Chicago Law School provided him with a fellowship and an
office to work on his book. The book took him a lot longer than expected
at the end it devolved into., guess what? His own autobiography! Instead
writing a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had
paid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self. He
entitled the book "Dreams from My Father."
Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he
still nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as important
his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and genius writing
insignificant things when he can write about such an august being as
himself? Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm,
lack conscience. This is evident from Obama's lack of interest in his
brother who lives on only one dollar per month. A man who lives in
who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and who has raised nearly
half billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in
has no interest in the plight of his own brother. Why? His brother
used for his ascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself.
This election is like no other election in the history of America. The
issues are insignificant compared to what is at stake. What can be more
dangerous than having a man bereft of a conscience, a serial liar, and
who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the
I hate to sound alarmist, but one must be a fool if one is not alarmed.
politicians are narcissists. They pose no threat to others. They are
self-serving and selfish. [Witness Al Gore's Income Tax; it reveals that
gave away NO MONEY to charities, not even to a church!] Obama evinces
symptoms of pathological narcissism, which is different from the
run-of-the-mill narcissism of a Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton, for
To him reality and fantasy are intertwined. This is a mental health
not just a character flaw. Pathological narcissists are dangerous
they look normal and even intelligent. It is this disguise that makes
treacherous. [Look up the word 'treachery.']
Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man
put an end to their party [and to this great nation]. The great majority
blacks have also decided to vote for Obama. Only a fool does not know
their support for him is racially driven.
Let us call a spade a spade [No pun intended]. This is racism, pure and
simple. The truth is that, while everyone carries a misconceived
guilt towards blacks for wrongs done centuries ago by a bygone people to
bygone people, the blacks carry a collective rancor, enmity or vendetta
towards non-blacks, and to this day want to "stand up" to the white man.
They seem to be stuck in 19th century [encouraged by race baiters like
Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and others].
The downside of this is, that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I
predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The
are unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cultic mentality is
pernicious and unrelenting. They will dig their heads deeper in the sand
blame Obama's detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the
whites. The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and
they will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four
years, racial tensions will increase to levels not seen since the
1960s. Obama will set the clock back decades. Americais the bastion of
freedom. The peace of the world depends on the strength of America, and
weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue
nations. It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Maoist
Castroists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo
terrorists, and virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled
the prospect of "their man" in the White House. America is on the verge
destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological
narcissist as president."
I'm sure you have heard it said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results each time. Kind of like voting for a Democrat or Republican and expecting them to uphold the United States Constitution. Baldwin/Castle in 2008
