Given the strong link between leadership and psychopathy, questioning the sanity of our future leaders might not be so preposterous. One study, for example, found high rates of superficiality, insincerity, and an inability to empathize in a number of business CEOs (one in five).
In order to be successful at the level of a world-renowned politician or head of a powerful conglomeration, one often has to take actions that can severely affect others. Being able to do so without feeling guilt or remorse is an advantage in both the business and political world.
When it comes to Hillary Clinton, she not only displays traits one would likely regard as psychotic, but she also seems to be completely off-balance in other aspects of her mental constitution, such as in documented instances where she has appeared to have lost complete control of her faculties or has compulsively lied and barked like a dog.
Let’s take a look at the evidence.
1. Execution of Muammar Gaddafi
Clinton’s leaked emails confirmed the long-held “conspiracy theory” that the plan to take out Libya’s then-dictator, Muammar Gaddafi, was motivated not by human rights concerns, but by Gaddafi’s plan to introduce a gold-backed currency that would unite the entire African continent. This currency would then be used to sell oil in the global market, and the African continent would be less reliant on the American dollar, strengthening Africa’s position in the world economy to the detriment of the NATO empire.
When Gaddafi was summarily executed by al-Qaeda-affiliated rebels on the streets of Sirte, Clinton’s response in a subsequent interview was to say “We came. We saw. He died,” before breaking out into Riddler-style laughter.
Anyone who has watched the videos of Gaddafi being captured by al-Qaeda-linked rebels can admit it is no Adam Sandler movie (considering how painful an Adam Sandler movie can be, this should illustrate the brutality of Gaddafi’s execution). Many reports indicated Gaddafi was raped by a bayonet.
2. Boko Haram
But Hillary Clinton clearly has empathy for others, her supporters might claim. What about the time she issued grandiose urgings to “Bring back our girls” after the savage terror group Boko Haram kidnapped 276 schoolgirls in Nigeria? Surely that shows her humanitarianism.
Yet the fact anyone could fall for such charade demonstrates how manipulative Hillary Clinton can be — a hallmark characteristic of someone who is psychologically unwell. It was Hillary Clinton who refused to put Boko Haram on the U.S. official terror list in the first place despite repeated requests from the CIA. Further, her policies in Libya led to the growth of Boko Haram, as the terror group was able to capitalize on the instability in Libya and receive a number of advanced stolen weapons.
Clinton’s policies allowed a terror group to grow like wildfire yet she is confident enough to pretend to care about its victims.
Does that sound like the conduct of someone who is mentally balanced?
In a 2012 interview with Charlie Rose, this time discussing what to do with the “threat” of Iran, James Baker stated that if the administration couldn’t get to Iran the way they were planning to, then they “ought to take them out.” Clinton is then given the opportunity to respond, during which she erupts into an enormous fit of laughter (again), as if war is a hilarious joke.
Generally speaking, people who laugh while contemplating or after committing murder are on the receiving end of a life-term imprisonment sentence.
