Newspaper articles and TV specials have made most people familiar with the psychiatric disorder called Munchausen-By-Proxy, in which a person (usually a woman) or a parent (usually the mother) makes herself or her child sick – by poison, overmedication, smothering, etc. – and then reports the dire symptoms to authorities, thereby garnering the attention and sympathy she craves, as well as heroine status for “saving” herself or her child.
When this bizarre pattern of behavior is observed over time – by family members, friends, psychiatric professionals – and they confront her with evidence of her pathological behavior, she invariably has one response: They are lying! Sound familiar?
Then there is the psychiatric disorder known as pathological lying, which is the compulsion of disturbed people to resort to lies rather than truth, the better to compensate for their feelings of inferiority. Some of the stories they make up may have a grain of truth, which allows them – or in the case of politicians, their surrogates or the media – to “spin” them to advantage. Their lies are always designed to put them in a good light and to resonate with people who also feel like victims. Sound familiar?
Yet another psychiatric disorder is masochism, in which either sexual or ego satisfaction is derived primarily from experiencing physical or psychological pain. This is particularly prominent in abused women who remain with their abusers because they rationalize that either the brutes “love” them or that – somehow, someday – they will gain enough power over their batterers to wreak their own vengeance. Sound familiar? I have spelled this out in this article and also in this one.
As the presidential campaign on the Democrat side evolves – or, in my opinion, devolves – there is ample evidence that Hillary has a few screws loose, if not a few bolts.
We all know that during her drive for the nomination, Hillary and her surrogates have continually played the racist card, in effect creating a media firestorm of accusation toward the ongoing blight of racism in the Democrat party. In true Munchausen form, Hillary has accused the media of causing the “illness” of her plummeting popularity, poll numbers, and electability. She hasn’t done this – they have!
Then there is the serial lying. As Bill Clinton’s public-relations mastermind Dick Morris has now documented, Hillary has the equivalent of a doctorate in not telling the truth. He lists the lies she has admitted to:
· Hillary’s daughter, Chelsea, was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
· Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
· Hillary was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
· Hillary learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (The WSJ didn’t cover the market back then.)
Morris documents other lies that Hillary has not confessed to:
· Hillary didn’t know about the FALN pardons.
· Hillary didn’t know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
· Hillary taking White House gifts was a clerical error.
· Hillary didn’t know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
· Hillary didn’t know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had. Read this for further documentation.
· Hillary supported NAFTA but now opposes it.
· Hillary was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
· Hillary urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
· Hillary played a role in the ’90s economic recovery.
· Hillary’s billing records showed up on their own.
· Hillary thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
· Hillary was always a Yankees fan.
· Hillary had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
· Hillary negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
