Barack Obama Using Covert Hypnosis In His Speeches

Paper: Obama Clearly Using Covert Hypnosis Methods

AAPS article referred to in above video:

Oratory—or hypnotic induction?

October 25th, 2008

Is Barack Obama a brilliant orator, captivating millions through his eloquence? Or is he deliberately using the techniques of neurolinguistic programming (NLP), a covert form of hypnosis developed by Milton Erickson, M.D.?

A fundamental tool of “conversational hypnosis” is pacing and leading—a way for the hypnotist to bypass the listener’s critical faculty by associating repeated statements that are unquestionably accurate with the message he wants to convey.

In his Denver acceptance speech, Obama used the phrases “that’s why I stand here tonight,” “now is the time,” and “this moment” 14 times. Paces are connected to the lead by words such as “and,” “as,” “because,” or “that is why.” For example, “we need change” (who could disagree?)…and…that is why I will be your next President.”

Techniques of trance induction include extra slow speech, rhythm, tonalities, vagueness, visual imagery, metaphor, and raising of emotion. Hypnotists often have patients count. In a speech after the primaries closed, Obama said: “Sixteen months have passed (paused)…Thousands (pause) of miles…(pause)…Millions of voices….”

Hypnotists call this a distraction technique: sending the dominant hemisphere on an assignment involving linguistic processes, thus opening the nondominant hemisphere to suggestion.

Hand gestures can be used as hypnotic anchors, or to aid in hypnotic command implantation. They can be difficult to distinguish from innocent gestures used for emphasis. Obama, however, uses some gestures extraordinarily often and for very specific words such as “believe” and “chose.” His characteristic thumb-and-forefinger gesture looks like a hand holding a pencil—as if you were in a voting booth. The gesture of pointing sends the subconscious message that a person in authority is giving a command.

Obama actually said at one time: “a light will shine down from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will say to yourself, ‘I have to vote for Barack.’”

You will not choose to vote for Barack: you will “have to.” It is not a logical choice, but rather one directed by a mystical (subconscious) force. What purpose would a politician have for making such a statement? Obama used it only once. Perhaps he stopped either because he realized it was too obvious or because Hillary Clinton and John McCain ridiculed him for it.

Obama’s logo is noteworthy. It is always there, a small one in the middle of the podium, providing a point of visual fixation. Unlike other presidential logos, one looks through it, not at it. It might just be the letter “O,” but it also resembles a crystal ball, a favorite of hypnotists.

Obama is clearly having a powerful effect on people, especially young people and highly educated people—both considered to be especially susceptible to hypnosis. It is also interesting that many Jews are supporting a candidate who is endorsed by Hamas, Farakhan, Khalidi, and Iran.

While some believe that hypnosis is not real, others believe that it is very powerful, and very dangerous in the wrong hands. Dr. Erickson, father of modern hypnosis, was adamant that his techniques should only be used by physicians. In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court decided in Leyra v. Denno that a confession obtained using hypnosis could not be used against the suspect in court.

A 66-page, extensively footnoted but unsigned article “An Examination of Obama’s Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches” is available at: http://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Find-Freedom.htm?At=039963&From=News

The discussion should have broad applicability in analyzing political speech in general. Comments by those with knowledge of hypnotic techniques are especially welcome.

Probably the most blatant example of Obama trying to mesmerize his audience and subconsciously coerce them to vote for him is addressed in the next excerpt from said document:

“a light will shine down from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will say to yourself, “I have to vote for Barack”’

It was even made fun of in a McCain ad entitled “The One”, probably without any realization that he was serious, and actually attempting to use hypnosis In this statement, Obama went too far, too obviously, and was clearly overtly hypnotically programming his audience. Probably, he intended to use statements like this more often, and probably stopped either because he thought it was too obvious, or because he was ridiculed for this by Hillary and McCain, or both.

First, notice how voting for Obama is made absolutely compulsory with the words “have to” – precisely as a hypnotic command. He is not asking for our vote – he is telling us how we will vote.

Notice the language “light shining down”, and “it will light upon you” a description of some supernatural (subconscious) force. This statement by Obama leaves no doubt that he is using hypnosis – which a mysterious force shining down and causing you to say to yourself obviously is. It leaves no doubt that his mindset is on completely non-logical, but rather mystical/supernatural (subconscious) forces will be compelling people to vote for him. Why would a politician who logically convinces voters ever joke about something like this? What purpose would there possibly be for any politician ever saying that a mysterious force will guide you and you will “have to” vote for me? This is potentially his worst slip up.

    Obama is a socialist, plain and simple.

  4. What does it say about the ethics of a man, that he deliberately, knowingly and purposefully avails himself of mass hypnotic techniques, all in the interest of elevating and glorifying himself.

    What does it say about him?

    It absolutely damns him.

    I noticed this over a year ago. At first, I thought I must have been imagining things. I couldn’t bring myself to think that a leading candidate for the nomination of the Democrat party, the oldest political party on the face of the earth, would stoop, would debase himself so publicly, all for the purposes of gaining that nomination.

    I couldn’t bring myself to think that he would be so brazen, that he would have the cojones to try such a thing, and try it with the media spotlight on him.

    How is such a thing possible, that the media ALLOWED him to entrance vast numbers of ordinary citizens.

    This is decadence. Utter intellectual decadence.

  5. If the media remains silent about this quite damning issue, then the next logical question to me would seem to be: what does this tell you about the media? And, emphatically, what does this say about the alleged integrity and objectivity of the US media?

    “Those who do not learn from history, are doomed to repeat it”

    The methods of mass persuasion Obama is using are NOT new. The exact same tactics have been used by virtually every other tyrant in history when they were attempting to seize political power.
    These tactics are not simply a well thought out plan, they are instead literally dictated by the psychological makeup of men like Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Idi Amin, and Barack Hussein Obama.
    Of all the tyrants in history, Obama is perhaps the MOST dangerous of all by virtue of his use of the extensive and technologically advanced mass media which was not available in the past.

  10. Riddle me this?

    If he is indeed using method, which I believe him to be, why are some people not affected by it? Is it due to not watching Obama speak for any substancial period of time. My husband and I can’t even stand to hear him speak, my hubby thinks its creepy that his cheeks puff out when he says his B’s and P’s, which I thought a totally ridiculous statement. But seriously why are some unaffected by it and yet others completely taken in? Is it due to the level of despair in the individual that would make them a better candidate? I have also heard that this type of “hypnosis” works best on the overly educated and the under educated segments of society. Any truth to that? Anyhoo, I personally think the man is evil and has guarded his past for a reason. I look forward to your response.

  12. Re: Amanda. Some people are impervious to hypnosis simply because they are not susceptible to it, genetically or spiritually, or intellectually I suppose. I can imagine though why people would like to listen to Obama because he is a charismatic orator in many ways. He says many things people want to hear in these desperate times. Other people however are able to see through the veneer of the superficial cult of personality worship. I’d suspect that people familiar with the many woes of socialism are quick to smell a rat also.

  16. You people are idiots. “a light will shine down from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will say to yourself, “I have to vote for Barack”’ was a joke, as you can see by the reaction of the people around him. The editor cut away before the laughter. Obama used this joke in several stump speech, to mock the GOP smears that he was the “Messiah” and “The One.” The stupidity of an effective speaker being compared to a hypnotist or Hitler is beyond comprehension. All sources for this crap are Conservative, hardly known, especially for last eight years, for their integrity and intelligence. Grow up, idiots. Wake up. For God’s sake, get smart, use your brains and stop being lemmings.

    • Well it just so happened that Farakhan called Obama the Messiah also. Is that “conservative crap” too?

      And yeah only Obamaniacs have the right to be lemmings. That’s obvious.

  17. Wow, you’re mature. Farakhan says his own crap, just like Sharpton and a host of others. But they hardly represent liberals, the Democratic Party or Obama. Unfortunately, clowns like you parrot clowns of the conservative machine that tell you what think. You still didn’t respond to the editing of Obama making a joke with the “a light will shine down …” part of his stump speech. With good reason; you can’t. The conservative leadership and media have no trouble editing and rearranging liberal speakers to make them say and mean something they didn’t. And they get caught at it a lot. Obama is not a hypnotist or Hitler or the Anti-Christ. He is articulate and smart, something this country has seen, from conservatives, in the last eight years and arguably, the last thirty. I know that is scary for you. Argue, if you must, his policies, but please stop trying to use easily provably smears – based on nothing – to label him. It’s what this country has suffered for too long and is a refection of ignorance.

  18. Wow, you’re superficial. The “light shining down” part may admittedly be vacant, but that does not mean that the rest is invalid also. Can you honestly say that you’ve read the entire document posted yonder up above? It would seem to me that you use the “light shining down” part in a strawman attack in a frail attempt to pull down the entire beef of the criticism put forth in the said document, which is an entirely unwarranted thing to do.

    In addition you state your opinion matter of factly, saying that Obama is not a hypnotist or Hitler ect., without backing it up by arguments or references, which is also an entirely unprofessional way to go about.

    Well pall only time will tell if your Obama can really put his money where his mouth is. Nonetheless this issue not about my ego and me being right at all cost. In fact, I’d like to see you being right and Obama succeeding in saving the day since I don’t want to see your country going to hell in a hand-basket as much as the next guy. But since I have very little trust in politicians by mere principle, I don’t really see this slick mesmerizing smooth-talker and unaccomplished coming-out-of-the-blue-to-save-the-world kind of politician doing a whole lot of good in the future.

    I can only hope you will be right in the future and that the change American society will be subjected to will also be a change for the better. As it stands now, with the ever deteriorating economy and standards of living, I have little faith that that will indeed happen.

  19. The “light shining down” is not my straw man; it’s on your blog, complete with a video. Glad you now think it’s vacant. And, yes, I did read the post you linked to: your 66 page “proof” of Obama’s hypnotic leanings from Freedomphoenix.com. This site prides itself on “being a daily resource for current and relevant political news, Freedom’s Phoenix gives you more time for organizing and communicating your thoughts on real events as they transpire instead of on the time-consuming hunt for the latest daily outrage.” Yes, God forbid one should consume time learning facts and finding truth. Their mission statement starts thusly: “We recognize that Freedom was taken from us the moment the ink was drying on the Constitution.” Really! Wow, those bastard Founding Fathers and their meddlesome Constitution. You can’t be serious using the site as an accurate reference point. And in their 66 page “proof”, they constantly footnote David X as an hypnotic “expert.” From David’s web site, selling his talents: I Was Lonely, Broke and Homeless…

    Yes, I think it’s crap. Any sane person would. And I don’t have to prove Obama is a hypnotist or Hitler anymore than you have to proof my statement that I can fly. That’s not how “professional” arguments work. You said it; you prove it; hopefully better than you have. And I’m sorry if you think that a Harvard Law Graduate, Constitutional Lawyer, State Senator and US Senator as just an unaccomplished, smooth-talker. So much less than all who have gone before, I guess. And our “ever deteriorating economy and standards of living” you worry about are not caused by in-office-one-month Obama; it’s been conservatives. And yes, I hope he can pull it off. And I agree – if he can’t and if he lies, then throw the bum out. In the meantime, a little reality check, a little encouragement and a little intelligence from this blog would really be in order. Thanks …

    Yeah this David X seems to be a bit of a hypnosis sensationalist. True, it may not be the conventional academic approach to peddle one’s ideas and information onto the public, but then again, it’s a typical American phenomenon and if it works, it works… In addition, the paper does not list David X as its sole source as there are many others listed, more reputable and even ones of academic recognition. It would seem to me that you’ve chosen the most vulnerable of the sources and used it to discredit the paper in its entirety. No offense, but again it’s a hallmark of strawman tactics.

    Although it indeed may be a bit premature to thoroughly debunk and expose Obama as just the next opportunistic smooth-talking politician trying to swindle the American public of their blood and hard-earned federal reserve notes, let’s examine a modest grasp of his track-record thus far:

    Banks losing 30 percent of their value in just 2 weeks on Obama’s mismanagement:

    A thirty percent loss in two weeks, in the very sector that we were promised would be “saved” by our new President, and that two weeks has passed without one iota of a plan being actually released.
    How much lower can it go?
    I have it on good authority that there is very strong support of stock prices at zero, and if you look at charts of Bank of America (closed under $4 today), Citibank (closed under $2.50), Wells Fargo (closed at $12.01), Fifth-Third ($1.21), SunTrust ($6.70) along with dozens more you will find that all of them are in fact racing directly towards that very heavy support right at that zero boundary. Many of these stocks have been cut in half or more in the last two weeks.
    Mr. President, you cannot come to Washington and write checks with your mouth you are unable to cash, and expect the market to put up with it. The market is bigger than you, or any other President, as you have just learned.
    You also cannot expect any bank to be able to raise capital with a stock price measured in fractions of a penny, and that’s exactly where they are all going in the here and now unless you and Tim Geithner get up on stage tomorrow and put a stop to this foolishness.

    Your inept and outrageously incompetent handling of this mess has led to the destruction of one third of the equity value of banks in the United States in less than two weeks. Your ineptitude is in fact greater than George Bush and Hank Paulson, who managed to take a third off the BKX but they took more time to do it than you did.

    http://www.prisonplanet.com/obama-has-lost-30-of-the-value-of-banks-in-the-us-in-2-weeks.html

    Then there is the cynical Geithner Tax fiasco:

    Geithner’s nomination came under fire due to his failure to pay $34,000 in overdue taxes. Geithner received Senate confirmation, but he was criticized for not following the rules of the Internal Revenue Service, which is a child agency of the Treasury Department he now oversees.[1]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_F._Geithner

    Obama that great “man of peace”, touted as that great saviour of the world, said on 2 May 2008:

    Obama made a number of points on Iraq in their last debate, finishing with: “I don’t want to just end the war, but I want to end the mindset that got us into war in the first place.” He followed that lofty goal with a promise: “That’s the kind of leadership that I think we need from the next president of the United States. That’s what I intend to provide.”“I want to end the mindset that got us into war”

    http://aljazeera.com/news/articles/39/Obama_I_want_to_end_the_mindset_that_got_us_in.html

    well keeping in mind the definition of his current administration, how on earth is going to keep to his noble words? :

    n addition to Hillary Clinton, Scahill warns of the following imperialist influences: vic- president Joe Biden, chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, former secretaries of state Madeleine Albright and Warren Christopher, former defence secretary William Perry, former UN ambassador Richard Holbrooke, and a host of other key Clinton-era figures (Dennis Ross, Martin Indyk, Anthony Lake, Lee Hamilton, Susan Rice, John Brennan, Jami Miscik, John Kerry, Bill Richardson, Ivo H. Daalder, Sarah Sewall, Michele Flournoy, Wendy Sherman, Tom Donilon, Denis McDonough and Mark Lippert).

    As Scahill concludes, “Barack Obama campaigned on a pledge to bring change to Washington. `I don’t want to just end the war’, he said early this year. `I want to end the mindset that got us into war.’ That is going to be very difficult if Obama employs a foreign policy team that was central to creating that mindset, before and during the presidency of George W. Bush.”

    http://links.org.au/node/778

    Tell me, how can one “end the mindset that got us into war” reconcile with his intentions to expand the war in Afghanistan and possibly also Pakistan?

    It would seem to me that the Americans have been had, big time, by bringing in this flip-flopping two-faced agent called “Obama” into the White House. Again I hope I’m wrong, but the facts hint that I’m not.

  21. You are amazing…

    1 – “Banks losing 30 percent of their value in just 2 weeks on Obama’s mismanagement” Again, you make is sound like everything happened the day Obama took office. Are you mad or just stupid? Then you link your source to an Alex Jones conspiracy website where he thinks the organized global takeover of the world, started hundreds of years ago, is now finalizing their plans. Sane source.

    2 – Geithner Tax fiasco? Wow, that’s important. So what? Do I need to list the long list of conservative fiscal malfeasance of more than $34,000? What’s this got to do with the topic?

    3 – Obama hires people familiar with government (he should employ novices?) and you chastise him about his mindset to end the war. It’s his mindset that calls the shots, not his employees. You link your cut and paste to the International Journal of Socialist Renewal (really?) and you quote (actually paste) “Scahill” giving his political expertise, identified only as Jeremy Scahill, US reporter. And he might be…?

    I agree with you about Afghanistan; don’t know what the hell we’re doing there.

    At any rate, your “discussion” is typical conservative tripe and tricks: state nonsense, try not to answer nonsense when challenged, and then keep changing the subject. Look how far our exchange has drifted from the original points.

    You state at the end: “It would seem to me that the Americans have been had, big time, by bringing in this flip-flopping two-faced agent called “Obama” into the White House. Again I hope I’m wrong, but the facts hint that I’m not.” First, he’s not called “Obama”, in quotes; that’s his name. And two, you really don’t hope you’re wrong. Read your sentence again, Phil. “flip-flopping”, “two-faced”. And an “agent”? Agent of what, Phil? Commie? A secret cell group? Someone un-American? Everything you’ve written suggests you’re following the current crop of two-faced conservative bullshit artists who openly state they want Obama to fail. These “Americans” are proud to say this, loudly and often. They want the President of the United States to fail. So come on, Phil, be proud.

    I broke a pledge to myself to not argue to people who believe the earth is flat because they’re too stupid to bother with. That’s you. As I’ve had to point out (with no success, apparently) your sources are lame and you have the political depth of a twelve year old. Not surprising considering the shallowness of your information sources. You want to believe and expound that Obama is an inexperienced politician but amazing hypnotist and the next Hitler, knock yourself out. This conversation can be over now. I tried to find meeting ground but, as with flat-earth people, it’s useless. Move on … these aren’t the droids you want …..

  22. Is emotive argumentation the best you can do? I’m hardly impressed by your silly ad hominem attacks and if anything it testifies that you are at the deficit of the discussion.

    1. Regardless of what you think of Alex Jones and whether you think he is credible or not, if you’d looked a bit further you were bound to find out that Jones actually quotes from another site: http://market-ticker.denninger.net./archives/2009/02/19.html . I suppose you regard that site to not be “sane” also?

    2. It shows that Obama has employed a tax dodger as treasurer. I find that rather hilarious as he should have done his homework on this guy, a little basic homework should’ve sufficed to show that something wasn’t right. You may think I am a conservative but I’m not. I’m not even American and I don’t believe in the Left-Right political paradigm you seem so fond of. I think it’s mere entertainment for the masses and has no actual bearing on the direction of politics as a whole. I have no stock in its merit at all.

    3. I advice that you focus on the message rather than the messenger. Status of the reporter is beyond relevance when you should dissect the message instead. Your ad hominem approach is futile and does not bear anything to go on for antagonists like me. If anything it only shows you’re frustrated as ad hominems are a telltale sign of despair and are used as a last resort.

    Well, we’re bound to find out if your Obama is worth every penny he tries out to make he is, now won’t we? And in spite of you pretending to know me better than I do, I do would like to see him a winner but his track record is already pointing in the other direction.

    Just a little encouragement from Phil: lose the ad hominem antics and find yourself welcome to my blog. If you keep insulting me, I’ll be deleting your future offending comments. I consider it to be an impolite habit that visitors come and crap all over my carpet, capiche?

  23. Looked further:

    From Karl Denniger’s own Home Page: at the top, his list of his expertise:
    * Internet security and the design of secure communications systems.
    * Infrastructure design for E-Commerce, Internet and Intranet applications.
    * Systems architecture, including high-availability, scalable systems, particularly on Unix systems such as Linux or FreeBSD.

    He’s a computer wonk. A good job, but his opinions outside that field are just his speculation, even as negative as they may be.

    “flip flopping, two-faced agent.” Obama …”great saviour of the world”. “slick mesmerizing smooth-talker.” Links to Hitler; Obama not US citizen; Obama’s Hypnotic Deception… and on and on…
    And yet: “If anything it only shows you’re frustrated as ad hominems are a telltale sign of despair and are used as a last resort.”

    Sometimes the messenger is as important as the message if the previous messages have been lies and nonsense. The Cry Wolf effect.

    I’m sorry. I’m back here again. I’m not impressing you. Won’t happen again …

  24. “flip flopping, two-faced agent.” Obama …”great saviour of the world”. “slick mesmerizing smooth-talker.” Links to Hitler; Obama not US citizen; Obama’s Hypnotic Deception… and on and on…
    And yet: “If anything it only shows you’re frustrated as ad hominems are a telltale sign of despair and are used as a last resort.”

    Well, with ad hominem attacks I was thinking more along the lines of namecalling and leveling baseless insults. I’m sorry if that was ambiguous and confusing.

    Obama has proven himself to be a flip-flopper at least on one occasion, and that was with his stance on war and therefore the label is justified. The lack of integrity Obama shows on the issue of war makes him earn the label of being two-faced and even also opportunistic.

    There are parallels to be detected between Obama and Hitler, Hitler jugend, Obama Youth is the more obvious one. So that’s justified too.

    There is plenty of evidence to defend the idea that Obama was using covert hynosis to work himself into office. So to call him mesmerizing is justified too.

    Same can be said about him not being a US citizen. All over the globe the media is praising Obama as the great saviour, so that label more than obvious.

    You don’t have to apologize for being here as long as you can bring yourself to be polite.

  25. Telepromter?, Hypnosis?.

    But who really CARES?.

    The last president was a master on bushism? (google for this).

    So what is the worst?. A pseudo fake orator or a stupid orator?. At least one option will give some hopes.

  26. Hitler was a great orator and he wasn’t stupid either but look what happened to the once magnificent and prosperous Germany.

    But let’s all just be good little lemmings and continue to stick our brainy little heads in the proverbial sand again now shall we? Obama will save us all while we go on drooling in a collective mind-numbing mesmerized state, having all the HOPE in the world and regurgitating the robotic YES WE CAN chant from here to Kingdom come.

  27. Again, stupidity. You got so used to a guy who couldn’t put two sentences together that one who can appears to you to be the work of Satan, or that good old stand-by, Hitler. Whether or not you agree with the man’s policies, Obama speaks with intelligence and forethought; obviously a threat to those with neither.

  28. Hmmm… rubbish. One should not mistake rhetoric with hypnotism.

    Should we long for the weaseling of George W.Bush? Get serious!

  29. First of all, it’s not like subtle forms or hypnosis are not employed throughout society through posters, advertising and what not; it’s even been found in television commercials despite the fact that it was outlawed (and things don’t get outlawed unless they’re being EMPLOYED in the first place). It’s laughable to think that he’s the only person in society using at least subtle subconscious control. If he really had so much control his ratings wouldn’t be slipping right now. He didn’t win the election because he “hypnotized” America. That’s just stupid. He won because people thought, right or wrong he offered something different than the last 8 years of the Bush circus. They simply didn’t want a Republican in again and the Republicans ran an average guy against a really smart guy, one that, yes was smart enough to probably have been trained in NLP. But who wants a president with average intelligence? This isn’t a horse show throwing contest.

    • Where is it said anywhere in the article that Obama is the “only person in society using at least subtle subconscious control”? Are you sure it’s something more than just a figment of your wild imagination Rod?

      “But who wants a president with average intelligence?” Errrmmm fans of Dubya?

  31. There goes conservatives getting facts wrong again ! Milton Erickson did develope NLP !! It was started by Richard Bandler and John Grinder. Dr. Erickson did not even develope the milton modle! The AAPS are just the health lobbying arm of the conservatives who play on the dumbness of the ordinary person by manifaturing facts that hardly any one knows anything about. Just trying to sink obama by making things up

  32. It’s really very complex in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I simply use the web for that purpose, and take the newest news.
