In the first Star Wars movie, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and the Jedi master, Obi-Wan Kenobi walk into an space bar where Obi-Wan uses his Jedi powers to confuse the minds of the creatures in the bar. He softly speaks to an aggressive creature threatening Luke while waving his hand gently in front of the creature. The creature loses the aggression with which he approached Obi-Wan and Luke, allowing them to go about their business.
There is a certain candidate for reelection as President of the United States in the 2012 election that practices similar techniques. Barack Hussein Obama-Wan Kenobi tries to emulate the Jedi master in speeches for his campaign. He makes patently untrue statements that regarding his success in economic recovery, gently waves his hand or uses his voice to calm his audience. The audience continues to blindly support him in their own, unique “fat, dumb and happy” way.
Some have suggested that Obama-Wan is using Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) methods drawn from the work of Dr. Milton Erickson in “conversational” hypnosis to mesmerize his audiences and deprive them of the ability to engage in cognitive thought. Critical thinking is generally lacking in the population of our once-great nation today as a result of our liberal education system.
A Western Center for Journalism article, entitled, “How Obama Literally Hypnotized America,” posted July 8 reported:
Barack Obama’s speeches contain the hypnosis techniques of Dr. Milton Erickson, M.D. who developed a form of “conversational” hypnosis that could be hidden in seemingly normal speech and used on patients without their knowledge for therapy purposes. Obama’s speeches intentionally contain:
· Trance Inductions
· Hypnotic Anchoring
· Pacing and Leading
· Pacing, Distraction and Utilization
· Critical Factor Bypass
· Stacking Language Patterns
· Preprogrammed Response Adaptation
· Linking Statements/ Causality Bridges
· Secondary Hidden Meanings/Imbedded Suggestions
· Emotion Transfer
· Non-Dominant Hemisphere Programming
In Part 2 of the Western Center for Journalism article posted July 10, the author stated:
Obama’s actions are far more deceptive than simply lying.
Most of our beliefs come to us from our own rational judgment and conscious analysis of the world. For example, we know it good to wake up in the morning and do something because we rationally know the consequences of staying in bed all day. When we like people, it is usually due to a combination of our rational judgment and how that person naturally makes us feel about them. We try to make people like us more by following social norms, making people feel good, smiling, and so on.
However, a very small percentage of the population actually study subconscious manipulation of not only how people feel about them, but how to manipulate and alter the beliefs we usually come to by our rational judgment, reason, and experience. These people study specifically how to sideline this rational judgment, reason, and experience, and natural feelings, and bend people’s feelings and will through the application of this branch of psychiatry to their interactions.
Many conservative are puzzled at the ability Obama-Wan has to say things that are patently untruthful and have them believed by his listeners. NLP conditioning may hold the answer to the question.
How else can normally intelligent people be seduced to believe the lies BHO speaks? Like the mythical god Janus with two heads and able to speak out of both sides, Obama says he believes in people being able to get wealthy, yet he asserts that, because they “did not do it by themselves,” they should share the wealth with everyone else. This Communist philosophy did not fly in Russia and other Marxist countries and ultimately failed, demonstrating its lack of economic viability.
So one might ask, “Why do we now think it will work here in America?” The very nature of man is self-serving since the Fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The Christian Bible tells us of the self-centeredness of mankind that will be increasingly manifest in the end times (2 Tim. 3:1-5).
A manipulative leader such as our current President will take full advantage of this phenomenon. Obama-Wan is only the tip of the iceberg—an example for all of us to be aware of and to avoid emulating. The selfishness disease is endemic in leadership of western cultures and pandemic around the world.
Wake up America! Learn just how you are being manipulated and fight back. Resist the efforts to deny you your God-given ability to think and discern!
