  • So, we just need to give all the liberals “The Full Lechter” treatment and everything will be fine? I’ll bring my hand-truck.

    There are several spectrums of personality disorders grouped in Cluster “B” of Axis 2 of the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV that might explain Skye’s thrill-seeking & dischord. She strikes me as the entitled Narcissistic Personality Disorder type…

    • Jim G

      So she can be President?

        {SNORT!} good one!

  • B Woodman

    I understand the basics, but the fine details mentioned (Axis 2? Cluster B?) are above my pay grade.
    (I just had to go there. I couldn’t resist).

  • The four Cluster B personality disorders are antisocial, borderline, narcissistic, and histrionic. Over 70 years ago, Dr. Hervey Cleckley provided the clinical description of the psychopath with narcissistic and antisocial traits. Dr. Robert Hare has further research in this area and clinically defined psychopathy now includes antisocial, narcissistic, criminal tendency, and sexual immaturity factors.

    Psychopaths want to control you, but psychopaths are eccentric in their actions, depending on their family upbringing and culture. Consequently, psychopaths may be serial murderers (John Wayne Gacy abused as a child), corporate CEOs (Jeff Skilling privileged as a child), religious (Jim Jones), financial (the Boards of Directors of Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac a few years age), or political (Hitler, Putin, Obama).

    Obama and his psychopath enablers are now a direct threat to the American Republic and to the Constitution of the United States of America.

  • Ed

    Huh. And here I thought they were just nuts.

  • Earl Goudie

    I’m with Ed!

  • Morris

    I’m with Ed. It’s true and simpler 😛

  • Gideon Reed

    The noted clinical details are not viewed as indicators of a broken and socipathic personality; rather resume enhancing markers on the road to greater rewards as part of the progressive political nachine.
    Being stupid AND a bit nutso is only trumped by being stupid, nutso and a “protected minority” group member.

    Couldn’t find anything on psychologist Martin Newburn. Suspect a typo of Marlin Newburn.

  • Immanuel Goldstein

    I don’t know if Obama can be classified as a psychopath, but Bill Clinton definitely is. He sees everybody else in the world, with the possible exception of his daughter Chelsea as either a tool to be used, or a toy to play with. He is not violent. He will not kill people for his pleasure. He gets off on seducing people, whether it be an arena full of supporters or the pizza delivery girl. He is smart, dishonest, and slippery as an electric eel. Thank God he is aging and not well. He would be a menace if allowed back in the White House.

    • Dr. Robert Hare’s Psychopathy Check List – Revised (PCL-R) contains twenty-one items. A score of 30 (out of 42 possible) denotes a psychopath. Clinton is a lousy person but probably no psychopath. Clinton keeps his secrets as well as possible, but he does not wear a psychopathic “mask,” that is, a false fabricated personality. Look it up if you are interested.

      Hillary, on the other hand, has built a false persona, and probably qualifies as a psychopath.

      • So how might Hitlery score on Dr. Hare’s checklist?

        • How should I know, I am a professional engineer, not a professional psychologist. The only reason I got into this was to solve a recurring management problem. I have professional verification that I worked for four self-described “tough sons-of-bitches” who fit the psychopath profile, but everything I say is my considered opinion based on forty-nine years of study. That is why I say that Hillary “probably” qualifies. She definitely wears a psychopathic type mask and with it fakes her way through high positions, with no qualifications or accomplishments.

  • I worked for a psychopath almost exactly forty-nine years ago and I thought he was “nuts”, though I described him as “crazy.” Then I worked for three more within a few years. I knew something was bad wrong, but what?

    When I gave seminars on my experiences, most of my listeners were polite and interested, but not overly impressed, like Earl, Morris, and Gideon. But a few became quite involved, and I have had both women and men come up to me in tears after my seminars, relieved that someone understood their experiences.

    It took me thirty years to work out that these characters were not “nuts” or “crazy” (psychotic) but were in fact psychopaths. Psychosis is a thinking disorder and at worst psychotics may shoot up a school or post office. Psychopathy is a personality disorder and psychopaths start wars. After the Germans went through a rough patch with psychopath Hitler, I was dumbfounded that they became so enthusiastic about psychopath Obama in 2008. Fortunately the Germans recovered their senses, but the psychopath enablers in the Democratic Party, not so much.

    We will continue to experience psychopaths until we understand and act on our understanding. The readers above could do a service to themselves and the Republic by trying to understand the threat that we are facing.

      To JLong and all other learned persons who have posted above:
      Knowing what you (and others) know about psychosis and psychopaths (etc), is there a way, outside of a doctor’s office, of evaluating the mental state of current and future politicians (at all levels, from city to federal), by evaluating behavior and answers to questions (slipped in on the sly during political campaigns), so that warnings could be given (by the MSM? HAH!), and hopefully these personalities could be defeated before they become too powerful and entrenched in office??

    • B Woodman

      Or maybe take it a step further: If you want to run for office, you WILL submit yourself to a doctor’s evaluation to see if you are fit to be elected into, and hold office.

      • I think if will require a change in the law. For example, as the law is written now, I think all psychopaths would be eligible for benefits under the Americans with Disabilities Act. But blind people are not eligible for driver’s licenses, far less is a psychopath eligible for a position of responsibility.

    Have you noticed that Medical and psycological [ractioners conventions are rarely held on Guam?
    Merely a common sense support for the expression of progressive’s belief, that it (Guam, as well as Manhattan) is “tipable”.
    Shockingly THAT view is not diminished alongside even more bizarre
    adaptions of the very strange party. (Democrats)

  • B Woodman

    Skye?! Apologize?! That ProgLibTard?! She will never ever apologize, unless it’s in a back-handed fake manner, not for any REAL hurt done, but to “further an agenda”. Think the UVa and Rolling Stones fake rapes, and any other Gubbment policy that’s “for the chiiiiidren”.

  • Stormhawk

    So, how long do you think before Skye tries to get into bed with Zed’s dad?
