This Part 3 is the primary analysis of the document. The quotes herein are taken uncut from Obama’s speeches. Readers and experts are encouraged to confirm this analysis by watching these videos firsthand, and seeing that the language patterns, manner of speaking, and timing of hand gestures prove undeniably the points raised in this document. All of these videos are available online and example links are provided in the footnotes. The times, minute:second (3:16 means 3 minutes 16 seconds) are measured per the videos cited. While these are only a few examples, close examination of most or all of Obama’s major speeches under expert scrutiny will likely be found to contain hypnotic tactics throughout.
As evidence of Obama’s use of hypnosis, he generally doesn’t do these hypnotic techniques and hand gestures as much when he gives impromptu speeches that are not prewritten. Obama’s hypnosis is something he carefully crafts, plans for, and rehearses. Town halls with impromptu questions do not lend themselves to be a forum for Obama’s hypnosis, and that may part of why he has avoided town halls with John McCain.
Obama’s California Democratic Convention speech 2007111 - a “play by play” of his undeniable use of embedded commands, hypnotic induction, and hypnotic storytelling Embedded suggestions are messages within other messages, in which while the conscious mind is receiving one message (the surface structure), the subconscious is receiving another, the real message. This can be done a number of ways, including by change in tone, or pauses, even ones so subtle the audience is not consciously aware of it, such as a split second pause or breath by the hypnotist at a specific time.
Pauses during speech and changes in tonality and in emphasis are a primary technique of conversational hypnosis. This is because you can say one sentence, and buried within it is another word or phrase with another meaning. A pause in speaking by the hypnotist, even is only for a split second, even if you are not even consciously aware of it, can turn that hidden meaning into a subconscious command because it is isolated, and emphasized in the subconscious. The subconscious mind does not interpret and analyze as the conscious mind does, and often many words are removed “deleted” from what you experience, and only
specific portions fall through to the subconscious mind.His statement is heard by the audience in one way, but subconsciously received another way, the way actually intended by Obama.
Obama performs an undeniable Ericksonian hypnotic induction: Obama’s “Turn the Page” Speech at the California Democratic Convention in 2007.
Note: While there are many examples and play by plays which are undeniable evidence of Obama’s hypnosis. carefully reviewing and understanding just this analysis of this part of this speech leaves little doubt of Obama’s intentional use of hypnosis.
One journalist describes Obama’s turn the page speech as having “had the California Democratic Convention spellbound for 23 minutes. Seeing the analysis below of just the first paragraph of this speech explains why his audience was in a spell from the very beginning.
Obama began his speech: (notes added)
“It has now been a little over two months (pause) since we began (pause) this campaign for the Presidency. (pause) In that time we have traveled all across this country. (pause) And before every event we do (pause), I usually have a minute to sit quietly and (pause) collect my thoughts. (pause) And recently, I’ve found myself (pause) reflecting on (pause) what it was that led me (different tone, and thumb and forefinger anchor for “me”) to public service in the first place.”
First, notice how much Obama uses storytelling in his major speeches, especially at the beginning of nearly all of his speeches. Storytelling is a primary hypnotic tool because it employs images, metaphor, the imagination, rhythm, makes us feel like children, and takes us to another time and place so the mind tells itself “it is only a story” and allows it to pass into the subconscious. However, this is just the beginning.
Obama tells a hypnotic story to start this speech with his ultra-slow speaking style with huge pauses after 4-8 word concepts, to force you to hang on his every word.
But this is only a small part of the proof that he is intentionally using hypnosis.
The key is, that the story he is telling is a story about a “trance theme.” In one of the most popular conversational hypnosis courses available online, the Power of Conversational Hypnosis, the first principle taught in how to use hypnotic stories, is exactly what Obama does in this paragraph. This primary technique is to “Use Simple Stories About Trance Themes”, or in other words, tell stories about processes which are hypnotic, such as per the examples given, relaxing on a holiday or being fascinated by a film.
Obama follows precisely this technique in telling a simple story in slow hypnotic rhythm about himself “sitting quietly”, “collect his thoughts”, and finding himself “reflecting.” Hypnotic stories use embedded suggestions so that while in trance and you believe something is happening to a character in the story, in reality the story is about you, implanting messages in your subconscious.118 The story requires you to use your imagination, and then the only way to understand the story is to imagine the themes Obama is presenting.
Obama’s first storytelling language pattern about a trance theme is “Sit quietly” – also a pacing statement because everyone in the audience is sitting quietly. The story is, as taught by this course, “isomorphic” in the sense that the story precisely mirrors what is happening with the subject e.g. sitting quietly. Then, it is also an embedded command, because when someone sits quietly, something they have rehearsed many times throughout their lives, because external stimuli are absent, sitting quietly makes someone’s thoughts turn inward or internally – as in trance. Notice how the story is in past tense, but the trance theme
(command) comes out in present tense.
Notice how Obama puts the focus on this word “quietly” with the pause afterward, to use it as a hypnotic message, as the silence emphasizes the last word spoken. His pause after “sit quietly” also serves another purpose. (Even though he says “and” after “quietly”, there is a substantial pause there.) It is also a pace in
the manner that Obama says the word “quietly …and”, and for a brief second there is silence afterward. He is in fact making his statement about quietness an absolute immediately verifiable truth, because he makes it true by pausing, and finds a way to pace you in yet another way. The more different ways he can pace the audience on different levels, the more effective it is.
Obama’s second storytelling language pattern about a trance theme is “collect my thoughts.” Though Obama says it from his perspective, to make sense of it, and because of his pacing, your subconscious also hears it as collect “my” thoughts, and thus the minds of everyone in the audience is commanded to become more in depth into each’s own thoughts, and go deeper into trance. Notice again this story about past actions is again delivered in present tense.
Obama’s third storytelling language pattern about a trance theme is “I’ve found myself reflecting.” It works similarly. The pause after “myself”, and then again after “reflecting” cause the audience’s subconscious mind to pick up on these commands. Thus Obama uses this as a command for all listeners to collect their thoughts (as in hypnotic focus) and be reflecting (essentially focus on another deeper level). Notice again how he starts out telling the story in the past tense, but then says “reflecting” in the present progressive tense to be a command for his audience to do what they are doing now.
The course on conversational hypnosis is not the only source to say such language has specific trance induction effect. See also Dr. Erickson’s discussion of use of words like “reflecting”, and how a hypnotist will construct sentences using the internal states consistent with a human being undergoing trance induction (e.g. wondering, learning, thinking, feeling, remembering, recalling, experiencing).
Obama then directs this focus. Obama says “reflecting on (what it was that led) me” While the sentence continues, the hypnotic message is for the audience to “be reflecting on me” (Obama). Obama’s emphasis and use of a different tonality for the word “me” is undeniable – it can clearly be heard when one is listening for it. When not consciously focused on that emphasis, it is just heard by the subconscious. After being paced by three separate stories with trance themes, delivered in hypnotic slow speech, the subconscious mind is waiting for clues about what to be so focused on and reflecting on, and surely enough, Obama tells our subconscious minds, “me.” Because he is speaking, the message is actually to focus not only on him, but his voice.
Then, perfectly timed, at the same moment Obama says the word “me”, he flashes his thumb and forefinger hand gesture, his classic anchoring tool.
Watching this tape – it is amazing, yet undeniable. Obama is not just using a subliminal message. He is knowingly and intentionally performing a clinical Ericksonian hypnotic induction and putting his audience trance.
Obama has hidden undetectably in normal-sounding speech what a hypnotist would do to start an induction by saying “sit quietly, begin to internalize your thoughts, collect your thoughts, reflect, and focus on the me and the sound of my voice. He is talking to your subconscious mind, preparing it for deeper induction and programming, while you think he is just telling you stories. Then, for the rest of the speech, your subconscious mind will be receptive to messages on this level that you wont even be aware of.
Look at how cleverly Obama disguises this induction as him simply telling you a story about himself sitting quietly and reflecting. Logically, there is no reason why Obama would be talking about himself sitting quietly and reflecting. Yet, you would never notice this unless you understood the science behind it. By no astronomical coincidence could Obama simply happen to be telling an irrelevant story which just happened to innocently contain three separate hypnotic trance induction themes in precisely this way, with pauses after each, with such an emphasis on the word “me” in conjunction with his unique hand gesture for this word. Let alone a story allegedly about past experiences that somehow ends up with each trance theme being delivered in the present tense. There is no logical reason why he would have pauses after the concepts “sit quietly”, “collect my thoughts”, and “reflecting on” because those aren’t (supposedly) the ends of the idea nor the sentence. Unless, that is exactly what he wants! There is no logical reason why he would place an unnatural emphasis on the word “me” – nor reason to use any hand gesture precisely for this word. What else watching this tape a few times also shows, is that Obama is a pro. He performs this so smoothly and comfortably, that he is clearly well rehearsed, and an expert.
Obama caught intentionally controlling pace in obvious attempt to maintain trance As additional evidence that Obama purposely places and keeps his audience in trance, he is here caught controlling the tempo of his speech to make sure everyone is kept in trance. He says at 5:30124 “Why would you want to go into something dirty and nasty like politics?” Then, he realizes he is speaking too fast, and he may not be properly leading everyone in the trance he is inducing, so to ensure he has everyone in trance, he repeats the sentence, slower, much slower, and with an extra extra long pause before “politics.” The second time he says, “Why would you want to go into…(huge pause to slow down the audience mentally and slow them down to his unnaturally slow rhythm) …politics.” He does this to make sure he does not speak so quickly as to lose the trance he is putting his audience into. This act, obvious on video, clarifies the difference between a person who just happens to be a good speaker who may have some innocent trance effect on some, and someone who knowingly and intentionally makes sure he has everyone in trance as he speaks. Watching this video, it is clear Obama knows exactly what he is doing.
While there is too much to analyze every hypnotic aspect of such complex speeches, this speech is a roller coaster ride of raising emotion, slow accelerating to fast, moderate volume leading to loud, and at each peak of the emotional highs he creates, he anchors the emotion he has raised to his “turn the page” language pattern.
Occasionally an interesting concept can be caught, for instance this tidbit: At one point when Obama talks about “parting of the sea”, his corresponding hand gesture is not one of the sea parting with his palms turning upward, but of pushing apart downward the water palms down, as if he were himself g-d parting the water. Perhaps accidental, or perhaps an intentional small part of some larger themes and concepts discussed below, connected to the reason why people like Nancy Pelosi make some strange comments, e.g. referring to Obama as “sent by g-d”, and other people refer to Obama as the Messiah. The frightening part is, if Obama is doing this intentionally, he either wants to send the subconscious message that he is the messiah, or he actually believes that he is. More on this later.
Obama’s speech Tuesday after primaries ended June 3, 2008125 – undeniable evidence of Obama’s use of hypnotic principles of anchoring, deletion, distraction, and leading Obama, also began his speech on the Tuesday night after Primaries were over with an undeniable hypnotic induction, using the paragraph below. First he said, in his ultra-slow speech with huge strategic pauses, “after fifty four (pause) hard fought contests (pause) our primary season has finally come to an end.” – A pace for which he got tremendous applause. Then, Obama continued:
“Sixteen months have passed (pause) since we first stood together on the steps of the Old State Capitol (pause) in Springfield, Illinois.(pause) Thousands (pause) of miles have been traveled. (paused) Millions of voices have been heard. (pause) And because of what you said (pause) because you decided that change must come to Washington (pause); because you believed (pause) that this year must be different than all the rest (pause); because you chose (pause) to listen not to your doubts or your fears (pause) but to your greatest hopes and highest aspirations (pause), tonight we mark the end of(pause) one historic journey (pause) with the beginning of another (pause) – a journey (pause) that will bring a new and better day to America. (pause) Because of you (pause) tonight, I can stand here and say that I will be (pause) the Democratic nominee (pause) for President of the United States of America.”
The analysis below explains what Obama is really doing, and what message your subconscious mind is actually receiving and why. First, again the unnaturally slow speech as discussed, which forces you to hang on his every word, creating focus. Notice how his pauses are designed to have you reflect and ponder, and have your mind wander during each pause. As your mind wanders, his words echo in the subconscious mind while your conscious mind is left hanging. This technique is designed to strain your critical factor’s efforts until it gets tired, and begins to tune out, leaving your subconscious mind in his hands, unprotected. While he starts out ultra-slow, his plan is to guide you by slowly accelerating his speech to the point where he increases volume, raises emotion, and delivers the lead. This is almost like how a horseracing announcer starts out speaking slow when the horses take off from the staring gate, and by the final stretch he is yelling and speaking very rapidly. Just like how a horserace announces builds excitement in his audience to promote the emotion-charged intensity and betting. It is not accidental. It is done and learned and rehearsed
to manipulate us. He brings the listeners into trance with this process. Subconsciously, the raising of rate of speech, volume, and emotion send the message that all of the before is building up to his grand finale of the paragraph, the lead, e.g. that he will be President. However, while a horseracing announcer does it once per race, Obama in his speeches repeats this roller coaster again and again while combining it with complex hypnotic pacing and leading, anchoring, and other manipulative subconscious techniques. The repetitiveness is also hypnotic.126 This is all part of the hypnotic trance induction. Again, like all of Obama’s major speeches, he starts off from the beginning using hypnotic storytelling. Storytelling e.g., of standing on the old steps together, traveling thousands of miles, having heard millions also:
The Power of Conversational Hypnosis, Clifford Mee and Igor Ledochowski of voices. It is not only magically captivating, but as discussed, is a textbook hypnosis induction. It makes your conscious mind imagine things and drift off to another time and place using imagination – an altered state of consciousness and fundamental tool of hypnosis.128 Listening to this, you have no option but to strain your conscious mind trying to figure out what comes next, while using your imagination to follow along through his images and stories. This helps bring the usually protected subconscious mind to the forefront, making it vulnerable. He not only forces you to focus, and asks you to use imagination, but he has you count numbers, e.g., “sixteen months”, “thousands of miles”, “millions of voices heard.” Firstly, “one of the techniques employed by hypnotists in inducing or deepening a trance state in a client is that of having the client count.”
Now here is where it gets really interesting. Obama uses the following key hypnosis technique, now his fourth separate and distinct fundamental hypnosis technique in just his first paragraph. He applies a dominant hemisphere distraction technique precisely as taught by Erickson’s three dimensions of hypnosis. Distraction is a common and fundamental technique in hypnosis in which the dominant hemisphere is distracted by the language its job is to process. The dominant hemisphere is sent on an assignment using the linguistic processes and imagination. The critical factor is thus occupied, to make the non-dominant hemisphere and subconscious more susceptible to suggestion.
Here is how it works. He asks you to imagine sixteen months, so you do. You follow where the storyteller takes your mind and so you try to imagine thousands of miles, and continue following along where he leads you. However, the conscious mind cannot imagine a million voices, the number is too big, though Obama tricks you with the first two numbers into trying, by leading you down a path of increasingly difficult concepts to imagine consciously. Notice how cleverly he leads you down a path which causes the dominant hemisphere to be distracted, and tune out of trying to do exactly what he is asking you to do. Your mind tries to imagine a million and is distracted, sent off on an assignment it can’t perform, tuning out, and exposing your subconscious mind. This is a calculated and pre-scripted hypnotic induction technique, and the only specific and logical explanation that makes any sense for what he is saying. Does this seem a bit too unlikely to be coincidence? What other purpose for this could there be for this language to be delivered exactly this way? What is he even talking about?
Then, right after the distraction, notice the causality linking statements, FIVE of them, back to back, “because of what you said… because you decided change must come to Washington… because you believed that this year must be different… because you chose to listen to your doubts not your fears… because of you” - all pacing and leading techniques with the causation already embedded, with the paragraph ending with the words “President of the United States” as the effect brought about by all those “becauses,” thereby becoming subconsciously linked. The most powerful linking statement “because” according to Dr. Erickson and every covert hypnotist cited in this document, is used not once, but five times, connecting Obama’s concepts to the lead, not that he is the democratic nominee, but “President of the United States,” the only words of that sentence he can be seen using pointing down hand gestures for. This is something nobody would never notice without an understanding of pacing, leading, and causality linking statements, but now that it is pointed out it certainly seems more than odd that he is using the word “because” so obtrusively. Why would anyone set up sentence structure for any concept this way? (Because A, because B, because C, because D, because E,…therefore X) Concepts are never set up to be communicated this way. It is too difficult to follow and impractical, and there is no purpose for it. Not unless one had a very specific purpose for using the word “because.”
Now let’s look at his use of hypnotic programming words: “decided”, “believed”, and “chose.” (other hypnotic programming words include “realize”, “know”, “understand”, and so on.) These are hypnotic programming words because instead of convincing you rationally until you actually decide, or believe, or choose, the hypnotist simply puts you in trance, distracts your dominant hemisphere, and implants the command into your subconscious. He hypnotizes you and simply tells you that you chose, that you believe, that you decided. Implantation of this word is more powerful than hours and hours of convincing you rationally. It is neither simply presumptuous nor coincidence that he is telling you what you decided, believed, and chose. So these words stand out in your mind, he places the most minute emphasis on “decided”, then a much larger emphasis on and pause after “believed”, and then a huge emphasis on and pause after “chose.” Some of these concepts are in the past tense, and that is also effective, sometimes even more so, because telling us prior our mind states may make them even deeper.
Obama uses “because” before each of these programming words because you must accept the premise in order to be able to follow the concept to the end and understand it. That’s why starting with five separate “because”s leading to one later “therefore” does not other than hypnotically make good communication structure. Because normally it tries to get you to accept precursor concepts before you even know what they are connected to - before you even know what the alleged actual concept being communicated is. Now let’s look at the pacing used in this same paragraph. “Tonight Minnesota” is a pace, because it is tonight, and he is in Minnesota. “Primary season has finally come to an end” is a pace because it is obviously true. Standing together and voices heard may help pace the audience because that is what they are doing literally, standing there and hearing the voices of the crowd. “You decided change must come to Washington” is a pace, because it is something we all know is needed – almost nobody can disagree with that. However, when you accept that, the hidden meaning to accept is that Obama should be President.
“This year must be different than all the rest” is a pace, because literally every year is different. When you accept that, you also accept his hidden meaning, that this year will be different because Obama will become President. “I can stand here and say” is again a literal pace because he is standing there and saying something.
Also notice how, because of the five “because”s, he not only connects these concepts to the lead, but connects these concepts to each other. Starting with a literal pace, he connects standing there hearing voices, to wanting change to come, to this year being different, which he connects subconsciously to your greatest hopes and highest aspirations, to back again to another literal pace, the fact that he is standing there saying something. He doesn’t even need to know what your greatest hopes and highest aspirations are, and he doesn’t even need to care. He has linked your greatest hopes and highest aspirations, no matter what they are, as sure as he is standing there speaking, to him being the President of the United States. That’s how hypnosis works. it doesn’t get you to believe, it tricks your subconscious mind into accepting the word “believe.”
Now let’s look at his perfectly timed hand gestures for the same paragraph. His hand gestures with his right hand give essentially the same thumb and forefinger hand gesture starting precisely at the words “believe (that this year should be different than all the rest)”, and “chose.” He does not, however, do this hand gesture, if it is truly for innocent emphasis, for what you normally think he would, the alleged message, e.g. “change must come to Washington”, not for “greatest hopes and highest aspirations”, nor for “a new and better day for America”, nor does he do that gesture for “I will be the democratic nominee.” While he uses this hand gesture at some other parts, from the beginning, he doesn’t use them at all until, and then primarily for “believe”, and “chose.” Then, as he says “democratic nominee” his hands appear motionless form this
video, and he emphasizes and points downward for the word “President.” Now we look at “deep structure” – how the audiences’ subconscious minds might interpret the same paragraph as delivered by Obama.133 Under the fundamental hypnotic principles of “deletion”, “distortion”, and “generalization”, the mind alters the content it receives as it goes into the subconscious. – A translation which is used and planned for by hypnotists. While your critical factor is distracted and captivated deeply by Obama’s trance, the same paragraph, to your subconscious, may be received something like this: [this is one possible translation with partial analysis added]
“we stand together … my voice is being heard…because you said…because you decided that change must come…because you believed [anchor] this year must be different than all the rest…because you chose [anchor] to listen [trance theme in storytelling] your greatest hopes and highest aspirations…we bring a new and better day…Tonight I can stand here and say [pacing] I will be the Democratic nominee [no visible hand gestures on the video] ‘the President of the United States’” [Pointing hand gestures downward (as if on a touch screen or push button voting) command gesture]
Also notice yet another distraction technique – rhyme. He rhymes I will be with the democratic nominee – a distraction technique which again distracts the linguistic processing part of the mind, as he points downward and says “President!”
An apparently innocent yet powerful paragraph on the surface structure, is actually intended to be received as clear commands to feel as one with Obama and hear his voice. He programs into you that you have already chosen, you have already decided, and you already believed. Before your conscious mind can say “wait, did I decide that?” he rewards you by conjuring up your own feelings “greatest hopes and highest aspirations.” Then, the “because”s come together for the lead, with hand gestures, “President.”
By reviewing Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. Volume 1, as well as other works on Ericksonian hypnosis, one may see a more detailed discussion of “deletion”, “generalization”, and “distortion.”
Now one might argue that half of this is coincidence, and the other half is just him being a great and powerful speaker. But let’s look at it. Why would he speak so slowly? We know he speaks faster in interviews and debates – why speak so slowly in speeches? What about the acceleration of his rate of speech to the lead? Why such storytelling? Why the exorbitant use of visualization and imagination?
…Which lead the audience down a path of imagining things until asking the imagining of something that can’t be consciously imagined? Why the five “because”s and why the unusual message structure from someone who speaks so well? Why the hyper- confidence for specific words like “decided”, “chose”, and “believe” with pauses after each one when they are not supposed to be the end of neither the sentence nor the idea? Why the hyper-arrogance for “greatest hopes and highest aspirations?” Why the repeated stating of the obvious and undeniable “I stand here tonight?” (used in all his speeches) Why no hand gesture for “democratic nominee”- why only for “President? And finally, how come all of these “coincidences” can all be explained by a single reason – all under the principles of hypnosis?…Which causes exactly the type of
mesmerized effect everyone admits they have from him?
Obama caught delivering another powerful hypnotic command Not every hypnotic technique of Obama in this speech is discussed herein – only a few examples are listed.
Notice his anchor at 9:17 of the word (independents and republicans who) “understand.”
Notice his extraordinarily long pauses after “change” 9:20 and 9:28.
At 9:55, Obama slips in a powerful hypnotic command. A moment after he can clearly be seen anchoring it with a hand gesture.
At 9:55, Obama says,
“All of you chose (notice the different tone and volume and microsecond pause after chose) to support a candidate you believe in deeply. (pause) ”
No, it is not simply presumptuous or arrogant to tell his audience that they “believe in him” “deeply.” Again, it is hypnotic programming.
First, he uses “chose” to program our subconscious minds that our conscious minds have already analyzed and made a decision. Again, the same hypnotic programming word he used in his opening paragraph discussed in the above example. If effective, this programming can even override our conscious knowledge that we haven’t in fact chosen. We will simply believe that we have chosen, and simply choose Obama. As he speaks the word “chose”, while your critical factor is analyzing whether in fact you chose any such thing and what you might have chosen and is distracted136, Obama uses the other hypnotic programming word “believe” (also discussed above), and he ends the sentence with “a candidate you believe in deeply.” He is not asking us to believe in him by any means. He is implanting the hypnotic command into a hypnotized audience that they already “chose.” Then, he is compiling the command by programming the audience with the utmost “hyper” confidence that they “believe in (him)deeply.” The reason he sounds so confident is because he is inputting a hypnotic command. Notice the pause after to allow “deeply” to sink in.
Let’s look at this phrase again:
“All of you chose to support a candidate you believe in deeply.”
When thinking about this language carefully, it becomes clear how unusual it is. A candidate may say “thank you for believing in me”, or “please believe in me”, or might say in any number of ways that his supporters believe in him. But to simply say as if it were fact “you believe in me” is unprecedented. If he didn’t use hypnosis, people would stop and say “no we don’t”, or “who are you to tell us what we believe.” However, people are so entranced, it slipped past everyone. And how odd is it that a candidate would say “all of you chose” and then refer to himself as a candidate “you believe in deeply.” This is beyond presumptuous, and beyond any confident political speak. He is not saying he will be President. He is telling us what we “believe.” He is telling us what we believe as though it is fact. He is telling us something he could never know, as though it is fact. This is a fundamental of hypnotic programming, that he does not convince the rational mind with logical basis, he simply puts the subject into trance, and literally tells them what they believe. And, he says we “believe” this “deeply.” People don’t speak like that accidentally about others’ feelings. This is all unacceptable as either arrogance, political confidence, or coincidence. Especially the word “deeply” a word that does not even require explanation to sound like hypnotic programming. This is a slip up that he got away with. It is hypnosis commands intentionally being laid by Obama in the subconscious minds of the audience.
Notice again the hypnotic programming words “chose”, “believe”, the same ones that were analyzed earlier at the beginning of this same speech, again, back to back, this time, in the same sentence. He was clearly in the same train of thought as he was while drafting the earlier part of this speech.
Then Obama anchors to himself this concept of believing in this candidate deeply. Then, a moment right after he says “deeply” (it needn’t be simultaneous), in his next sentence he does his thumb and forefinger hypnotic anchor, and points to his torso with his fingers in that position, subconsciously associating in the audience those deep feelings and emotions with himself. That next sentence is about “we aren’t the reason you came out.” For this, he would have no logical reason to point to himself at the word “reason” –
Also notice how he doesn’t say “you believe in me.” He leaves it to the subconscious mind to put that together to make it as subconscious as possible.
Before this phrase, Obama says “there are young people, and African Americans, and Hispanic Americans, and women of all ages who have voted in numbers and who have inspired a nation.” But he is not referring to these people when he says “All of you chose a candidate you believe in deeply, though me may be trying to reserve that as an excuse. The reason is, he doesn’t say “all of them chose”, he says “all of you chose.” He is talking about these people in the third person, and he is saying this hypnotic phrase in the second person. As an attorney, he knows this is incorrect, and that he is applying this phrase to his entire audience, not just the people he listed prior.
The Power of Conversational Hypnosis, Clifford Mee and Igor Ledochowski, on the discussion of pacing with body language as an example, of how subconscious gestures need not be simultaneous to be effective, and delay of a couple of seconds is effective, and sometimes necessary, including so as to not be obvious. Especially when all of his other hand gestures are timed well to correspond to his words. There is no other explainable reason for his thumb and forefinger to be in that position, and then turn it inward to point to his torso.
As discussed below, in Obama’s 2008 Denver Democratic Convention Speech, he uses this exact same technique of his thumb and forefinger, talking about John F. Kennedy, then pointing that hand gesture inward toward his torso a moment later, to create a subconscious association between himself and JFK. Odd once to be sure, but caught twice, or more, with the same hand gesture, it is no coincidence.
Obama caught pacing and leading again
In another classic Obama pace and lead, notice how he gets the crowd all roused up around 20:40, with his peak speech, peaking in intensity, emotion, volume, and rate so much so he doesn’t have even a high or low at the beginning or end of his points. He discusses how teachers should be paid more, everyone should have healthcare, and then he says “that’s the change we need …that’s why I’m running for President (pause) of the United States.” Again, this is his classic pace and lead. It makes no sense that because we need those miraculous changes he described, that is the reason why the President should be none other than him.
Logically he has not said why he should be the one, what he would do, or anything of the sort. However, because his leading is so powerful, it is something the cheering audience believes in strongly, he adds the element of causation, “that’s why” and then his two part lead, 1. President, and 2. (reinforcing it again) of the United States. Because this lead is embedded in our subconscious, we simply create the logic to justify how we feel – the missing component – that supposition that Obama is the person who can and will create this type of change and make all these miracles happen.
Obama’s 2007 California Democratic Convention “turn the page” speech – further analysis
“Turn the page” is not just colorful visual metaphor that Obama happens to like to say. In Obama’s 2007 “turn the page” speech he uses the phrase “turn the page” fourteen (14) separate times. 140 141 He uses it as a hypnotic anchor, and as a preprogrammed response, to stir emotion, and as a hypnotic metaphor.
Obama using “turn the page” as a preprogrammed response:
A preprogrammed response is anything to which your body has already been conditioned to react to with a certain response. For instance, you have been already preprogrammed to know that change is a 100%
It appears Obama does this a third time in his speech on race in Philadelphia, when he says Telling story about a poor kid, he says, “Now, Ashley might have made a different choice”, then he hand gestures like writing with a pen, clarifying the meaning of his thumb and forefinger trademark, similarly as he does in his 2008 Denver speech, discussed in that analysis. Then, while talking, a moment later, he gestures to himself with the thumb and forefinger his anchor - making the subconscious message that he is that “different choice.”
Barack Obama’s speech to California Democratic Convention, 2007
Transcript, Obama’s Turn the Page speech, April 29, 2007, available, e.g. http://www.californiaprogressreport.com/2007/04/barack_obamas_t_2.html certainty, and when you are reading and holding the page in your hand “turning the page” is a 100% certainty. When a person reading gets to the end of the page, the decision to turn the page is automatic, subconscious. It also happens at a time when we are reading, and in trance. This is something each of us is programmed with because we have each rehearsed this thousands of times by turning pages in books, students and more intellectual people even more so. It is an automatic reaction. What Obama tries to do is
apply that level of certainty and automaticnesss to your decision to support him as President.
Obama using “turn the page” as a hypnotic anchor:
“Turn the page” is also used by Obama as a hypnotic anchor, to cause you to recall his planted hypnotic suggestions when you are in the voting booth, with the pen in your hand like his thumb and forefinger, the other primary anchor. It is a hypnotic anchor that is used very cleverly by Obama by taking advantage of a preprogrammed response in the subject. Turn the page is not just a vague and colorful way to say that Obama will improve America. It is designed to be triggered when we are holding the pen and “turning the page” in the voting booth. The vagueness of such language used in hypnosis, and the multiple meanings, as discussed aove, are part of precisely what makes it work. See the discussion on secondary meanings, embedded commands, surface versus deep structure, and trans-derivation.
Obama’s Democratic Convention speech 2008142 – A “play by play” of his undeniable and extensive anchoring, pacing, leading, and delivery of subconscious commands
This first example isn’t a documented hypnosis technique, just a bit of classic deception that is part of Obama’s show. When Bill Clinton gave his speech earlier in the Convention, he could barely get started for minutes because the applause and cheering was so loud he genuinely could not speak, and it refused to die down.
Obama didn’t have that problem, so he faked it. He didn’t have such applause and cheering, but he faked it by pretending it was so loud he couldn’t speak, and pretending it was interrupting him, saying “thank you”, pausing and allowing the low level of applause to continue, and then saying “thank you” again, and repeating, as if he was trying (though not really) to quiet down the unquietable crowd. Comparing his opening to Bill Clinton’s, it is clear that Bill Clinton genuinely could not speak, and Obama could easily speak over the much quieter cheering and applause had he wanted to.
Before I discuss Obama’s use of hypnosis in his speech, I really have to point out one other amusing point. Obama said “I am grateful to finish this journey with one of the finest statesmen of our time.” (referring to Joe Biden) What journey is he finishing that is almost over? Wouldn’t he be President for four years? Americans certainly hope the end of the election season is not the end. This is a slip. He looks at the election as the journey because his entire mission is simply to make it into the Presidency before we realize what he is doing, or who he really is.
Obama’s typical pacing, leading, storytelling, and hidden meanings induction:
Above in this document under the heading “What is “pacing and leading”, and how does Obama use this hypnosis technique?” – are listed Obama’s use of three pacing statements fourteen times in this speech which are not repeated in this section.
Obama’s Democratic National Convention Nominee Acceptance Speech, August 28, 2008, available at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/08/28/barack-obama-democratic-c_n_122224.html
Again, like all of Obama’s other major speeches analyzed in this document, he starts off with hypnotic storytelling. This is not because he figures we would all want to hear a story. His calculation is how to get the quickest and deepest trace induction without anyone knowing what he is doing.
“Four years ago, I stood before you and told you my story, of the brief union between a young man from Kenya and a young woman from Kansas who weren’t well-off or well-known, but shared a belief that in America their son could achieve whatever he put his mind to. It is that promise that’s always set this country apart, that through hard work and sacrifice each of us can pursue our individual dreams, but still come together as one American family, to ensure that the next generation can pursue their dreams, as well. That’s why I stand here tonight.”
Again, Obama uses hypnotic storytelling in his unnaturally slow pace. The story starts past tense, to have you imagine another time and place.
The story is also a pacing statement, “I stood before you and told you my story” which is a present account of exactly what he is doing now, an accurate current representation of the subject’s ongoing verifiable experience because he is standing before us now telling a story. This is a very powerful trance induction technique, because Obama tells a story, forcing you to apply and use imagination, an altered state of mind and different perspective, to look at the present situation. He is making you apply an altered and subconscious state of mind to your present experience of watching his speech.
The well-off or well-known statement is again, a play on words for dominant hemisphere linguistic distraction in order to access the non-dominant hemisphere per Erickson’s three dimensions of hypnosis. He is already pacing, and the play on words is precisely the type of “utilization of the dominant hemisphere, language processing which occurs below the level of awareness. Your dominant hemisphere below the level of awareness analyzes this play on words, and becomes distracted, leaving it open for implantation of hypnotic suggestion.
Then, sure enough, notice how he flashes his thumb and forefinger gesture again starting with when he says the word (shared a) “belief.” The “belief “ that he is anchoring here is: that in America their son, (Obama) could achieve anything he set his mind to. It is difficult to follow consciously, but that is the belief they shared. What in fact their son has set his mind to, is to become President. Consciously, it is difficult to follow that when Obama says “belief”, and anchors it with his hand gesture, Obama is really anchoring himself achieving the Presidency. He is anchoring and implanting the command of his becoming President without expressly saying it, so it remains subconscious.
Notice his words, “promise”, “hard work”, “sacrifice”, “each of us can pursue our individual dreams” and then ends the paragraph with “That is why I stand here tonight.” Promise, hard work, sacrifice, each of us pursue our dreams are beautiful concepts nobody can disagree with, and they are pacing statements. In no logical way however does Obama connect these beautiful concepts to why he would make a great President.
Instead, he simply uses causation, the strongest Ericksonian linkage statement, and says “That is why I stand here tonight.” This statement is a brilliant use of Ericksonian hypnosis techniques, including pacing and leading, because this statement is both a pace and a lead in one. Obama has actually set it up in the run up to this paragraph, so “that is why I stand here tonight” – is both a pace, as it is immediately and verifiably true that he is in fact standing there tonight. Also, he has set it up in the whole preceding paragraph, that what this obviously true statement means, is that he will become President, by starting with and connecting his parents dream, and stating all the beautiful concepts, and then saying “that is why….” he stands there tonight – obviously meaning he is there because he wants the Presidency.
This is the really clever part. When he says “that is why I stand here tonight”, your subconscious mind accepts that as absolutely true. But the question is, which interpretation? 1. That he is literally standing there tonight? or 2. That he is standing there so his parents’ dream will be realized? or 3. That he is standing there is because that promise, hard work, sacrifice, and our children’s dreams is the reason why he is there? The mind is distracted with this trans-derivational problem that occurs below the level of awareness. Meanwhile, the subconscious mind accepts all three interpretations as absolute truth.
Remember, the subconscious mind cannot make rational distinctions. Once the subconscious mind labels this statement (that is why I stand here tonight) as absolutely true, it accepts it, including all of its meanings, including hidden meanings. You look at him standing there tonight and confirm below your level of awareness that that statement is true on one level, and that acts as a confirmation of the other meanings in the paragraph, that his parents dream will be realized, and that promise, hard work, sacrifice, and our children’s dreams is the reason why he is there. And remember, this all awhile you are entranced by his unnaturally slow, poetic, melodic, hypnotic storytelling, imagination provoking, emotion provoking, and passion provoking content. He doesn’t send this message to you consciously, but intentionally and
powerfully implants and programs you with it subconsciously.
The statement that is verifiably true is the very same statement that means he will achieve the Presidency
and associates him with all those beautiful concepts. This is no coincidence. This is classic embedded
suggestion programming containing every element in hypnosis trance induction through all of the required
elements, from pacing and leading, to pacing, distraction, and utilization of the non-dominant hemisphere.
It is beautifully crafted and advanced Ericksonian hypnosis.
He uses the same phrase “that is why I stand here tonight” again at least two more times later on in the speech. Millions of people feel like voting for Obama and cant point to an accomplishment or change he has brought. This hypnotic gamesmanship is the cause for many. Obama caught stacking language patterns Obama’s speech contains similar hypnosis techniques throughout, including this very same technique immediately following the previous command. This repetition of hypnotic language patterns one after the other is typical stacking language patterns, and is very effective at subconscious programming without conscious awareness.
Obama follows the above with:
“Because…Every time our nation has been in jeopardy, ordinary men and women” (points to his audience) …students, teachers, nurses, janitors…had the “Courage” (points to his audience) “to keep it alive.” “We meet at one of those defining moments now.”
He paces everyone in the audience by talking about “ordinary men and women, teachers, students, ….” for identification. Then, notice how he points to the audience when he says “defining moments”, as if voting for him will define us e.g., as open minded, as courageous. While difficult to follow consciously, he just said, essentially, that because you (points) have had courage (points) at every dark time, and this is one of those times, that is why he is standing before us.
The pace and lead is again a single statement, “we meet at one of those defining moments.” Again, same technique as in the previous sentence. You can immediately verify that we indeed are meeting, at this moment, and thus you subconsciously accept this statement as a true pace. When this statement is accepted as true, you again also accept as true all the other programming and meaning that Obama sends along with it into your subconscious. What logical sense does that make though? What does him standing there have to do with people’s courage throughout history? Because he is standing there people can pursue their dreams?
At 15:50, Obama uses this same technique again.
After discussing economic issues, building emotion by mentioning a waitress who can take off from work to take care of a sick kid without being fired, and having an economy that honors the dignity of work, Obama says:
“The fundamentals we use to measure economic strength are whether we are living up to that fundamental promise that has made this country great - a promise that is the only reason I am standing here tonight.”
He starts out saying things nobody can disagree with, and building emotion. Again, he uses causality to link beautiful and emotional concepts he conjures up to himself with causation language that logically is completely without any logical support. Why use this language of causation without any basis for it, when there is no need for causation language “the only reason.”
More importantly, yet again, Obama links these beautiful concepts with causation to a statement that is both verifiably true in the literal sense in order to implant the meaning he has built into it. He talks about “the fundamental promise that has made this country great”, and says “a promise that is the only reason I am standing here tonight.” He uses language about the promises that make this country great and builds that meaning into “that is why I am standing here tonight.” He doesn’t say “that is why I am running for President.” “I am standing here tonight” is something more easily and immediately verifiable and serves as a more literal and effective pacing statement. When your mind accepts the statement “that’s why I am standing here tonight” as absolutely true, it allows it to pass into the subconscious. However, this statement has two meanings, 1. that he is in fact literally standing there, and 2. the meaning he built into himself standing there, he is there to make sure that we are living up to the fundamental promise that has made this country great. When your mind accepts “that’s why I am standing here tonight” as absolutely true, all meanings attached to it are absorbed into the subconscious as true, because your subconscious mind cannot differentiate and rationalize which meaning he intended.
What he is doing is no coincidence and no accident. He is repeatedly setting up language patterns that support subconscious beliefs of why he should be President to intersect and be embedded within statements immediately verifiable by the subconscious as absolutely true, such as “that is why I stand here tonight”, or “we meet at one of those defining moments.” Then, the audience sees him standing there as he says it, processes this below the level of conscious awareness, and unknowingly accepts subconscious programming as absolute truth consisting of all of the underlying meanings he has set up to correspond with the obvious surface statement. Nobody just happens to speak like that. Not once, let alone again and again, one after the other.
*Obama caught clarifying his hand gesture as unmistakable hypnotic anchor of writing with pen (twice): You have to watch these videos. As he says “the only reason I am standing here tonight, he waves his palm towards his chest, taking that emotion and saying “me”, then he points upward signaling “command”, and then he does this:
Right after that, at 16:22, right after he says, “the only reason I am standing here tonight” analyzed above, notice his hand gesture when he says “the faces of those young veterans.” Notice how he appears to be writing with a pen, to complete the three-part hidden hand gesture, “me” “command” and “write”(or probably “vote”). At 16:22 – his gesture of writing with a pen is unmistakable.
Similarly, at 6:51, Obama also clarifies his hand gesture. He says, “more of you have lost your homes, and even more” and at that moment, he does a very strange thing with his thumb in forefinger technique, clearly making a gesture as if he is using his hand as a pen writing. It is unmistakable. We don’t consciously recognize it, but he anchors us for when we are holding the pen in the voting booth, thereby clarifying for us subconsciously the meaning of his consistent thumb and forefinger anchor. (being our hand, our pen)
Watching this video of these two of Obama’s hand gestures, no reasonable person would believe Obama accidentally made these gestures. You can watch these scenes in these videos all day long and you cannot come up with another reasonable explanation for what he is doing than hypnotic programming.
A few tidbits::
Obama says “come together” – notice his hands towards his mid section, to signal come together to him.
He points to us as he says “(these) challenges,” suggesting that we are being challenged, or that we have a challenge to fulfill i.e. to follow his commands.
Look at how he blends commands to stay in trance into his speech. He says at 17:08 “When I listen to another worker tell me his factory is shut down.” – listen to how he enunciates “listen”, to keep people subconsciously listening to his voice.
When he says we are “better than this…more descent” notice how he uses his hand palm towards himself, to send us the signal subconsciously that he is ‘better” and “descent.”
He does the thumb and finger anchor again as he tells the story about the man who “chokes up” – anchoring the symbol with our emotion. This is just before the primary command explained below.
He also does an unmistakable hand gesture for the word “keep” just before the primary command explained below.
He says “we are more compassionate” and again puts his palm towards his chest, to send the message that he is compassionate.
The reason this is deceptive and manipulative, is that Obama is not telling us that Obama is compassionate, nor is he providing any logical basis for us to believe that he is compassionate. He pretends he is talking about someone else. He is tricking our subconscious minds to believe that he is compassionate without even telling our conscious minds that he is communicating that message. Consciously, we can’t even analyze it or make a rational judgment about it because we are not even aware of having received the message. Obama caught giving the primary hypnotic command of the speech:
After having raised in us a number of emotions, and having paced considerably, and prepared us for a hypnotic suggestion, Obama delivers the following paragraph, his primary hypnotic command of the speech:
Tonight, (pace - it is tonight) I say to the American people (pace - he is obviously saying to the American people), to Democrats and Republicans and Independents across this great land - enough! This moment (pace - it is this moment) - this election (pace - it is this election) - is our chance to keep (thumb and forefinger anchor - as in to keep his hypnotic messages), in the 21st century (pace), the American promise alive (pace – who would disagree). Because (causality linking statement) next week, in Minnesota, the same party that brought you two terms of George Bush and Dick Cheney will ask this country for a third. And we are here (pacing) because (causality linking statement) we love this country (pace) too much to let the next four years look like the last eight. On November 4th, we must (strongest command word possible) stand up and say: “Eight is enough.”
The command is not “eight is enough.”
Obama executes the hypnotic lead that follows his emotional stirring and pacing just before that, as he says, “on November fourth, on November fourth!” Obama says “on November fourth” twice, attempting to make it seem as if he unintentionally double-spoke. However, this is very intentional. Notice how he has his thumb and forefinger together anchoring “November fourth”, together with the emotion he just stirred up, for the first time he says “on November fourth” He does this so we will recall his hypnotic messages and programs and emotions when we hold the pen in the voting booth.
Then, notice how the second time he says “on November fourth” with the same hand that was thumb and forefinger for the first, he changes it to firmly point. He is pointing, which is the international and subconscious signal that he is giving us a command. Frowning and pointing is a common technique in conversational hypnosis to get someone to do something, because on the subconscious level, we perceive it as a command that we must perform, regardless whether consciously we feel like we are doing it voluntarily. Look at the firmness of his point, with a serious face perhaps a slight frown, as he says it the second time. Obama is not asking us for our vote, he is absolutely commanding it. One website even discuses how angry Obama appeared during parts of his speech. He is commanding all subconscious minds under his trance to support Obama.
In fact, it was so good at looking accidental;, that the written speech transcript only has “on November fourth” once.
The Power of Conversational Hypnosis, Clifford Mee and Igor Ledowchowski, p104 of 631, “And likewise, when you are suing ‘command’ tonality, maybe you want to frown a bit. I used to point my finger at an imaginary client, and then give him instructions. So that, every time I pointed my finger and frowned, my voice started going down, because the physiology of commands, or instructions, is to point and frown slightly, and really get someone to do something.
The Angry Barack Obama Acceptance Speech, August 29th, 2008, http://www.mikefrancesa.com/wordpress/?p=1011
It is easily proven that his double-speak is intentional, because his hand gestures are so pronounced and clear, and how clearly he switches from one hand gesture, the anchor, to the second, the command. Were the double speak accidental, he would not have such clear and definitive and purposeful and different hand gestures. The reason he says “On November fourth” twice is because he is giving us a two-part hypnotic command, 1. recall the hypnotic commands by the hypnotic anchor, and 2. act on them and vote for me – both commands to be recalled “on November fourth” – That’s why he gives you the specific date. .
This is undoubltable evidence that he is implanting commands in a way we are not designed to be consciously aware of. He doesn’t coincidentally happen to again use the hypnotic anchor, and the pointing technique. Notice how these are the same gestures he uses in his statement for the same two principles, reception of the hypnotic message, and taking the commanded action by voting, that he uses in his overt hypnotic statement discussed above:
“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”’
Any forgiveness of this is simply because one may not understand how powerful and effective such techniques are. How effective these tricks of Obama’s are, can only be shown by the effects – millions of people completely irrationally in love with him, and compelled to vote for him. While you do not see it as consciously swaying you in any way, as of course it doesn’t logically, or you may not even notice it, in fact, it is a powerful command that compels millions to want him president, regardless how they feel logically. Obama’s aggressive pointing- the subconscious signal of giving commands: Here are some general examples of Obama aggressively pointing – the hypnotic symbol for giving a command.
At this point, Obama goes into a pattern, as he occasionally does, where his hand gestures just normally flow with the conversation without any specific meaning for the most part – essentially using his hands the way be believe he always is, in order to not be obvious.
Shortly thereafter, Obama anchors the word “believe” yet again with his usual thumb and forefinger technique. Is it again a coincidence? If there were no rhyme or reason to his hand gestures, why is it that he uses the same thumb and forefinger gesture for the same word (“belief”) that he anchored the same way at the start of his speech? He is subconsciously training us to “believe’ his hypnotic programming.
Images from Democratic National Convention speech in Denver, 2008 (as examples of aggressive pointing, like those he uses as commands, not necessarily designed to coincide with specific commands discussed.) Photos http://www.mikefrancesa.com/wordpress/?p=1011
Obama caught in another hypnotic command, anchor, and a strategic pause:
Obama then says 15:50 “its time for us to change America…” (pacing statement) “…and that’s why I’m running for President (pause) of the United States.” (causality linking statement and the lead, delivered again with his standard hypnotic anchor, the thumb and forefinger flash) This is another classic Obama 1. pace 2. causality linking language 3. lead 4. hypnotic anchor in which he inputs the hypnotic command - that he will be President of the United States, to be recalled in the voting booth on November fourth.
Why does he pause between ”President” and “of the United States”? Because when you are in the voting booth holding the pen as he has anchored, and all these commands are coming back, when you read the actual ballot, it reads, “President”, and then on the next line below, “of the United States, and as you read the ballot in the voting booth, you will subconsciously pause for a split second as your eyes skip because you read from one line to the next. By pausing when he gives you the command, it will more perfectly match the situation in which you must act according to that command, to make the subconscious link more effective. That is how clever and strategic and precise Obama’s hypnosis techniques are. This is how the unconscious mind works. Everything he is doing, the thumb and forefinger “holding the pencil” hand gestures, the pointing, the pauses, the hand gesture where he appears to be writing with a pen (in his democratic speech), the metaphors (anchors like “turn the page”, are all preparing you, anchoring you for recall of all his hypnotic commands recalled by you yourself holding the pen and the ballot card that day on November fourth when you are in the voting booth.
Notice his palms towards himself again when he says “rewarded by a grateful nation.” It is difficult to tell, but he may actually be implanting the subconscious suggestion that he is so wonderful, that we as a nation must reward him (by giving him the Presidency).
He talks about soldiers, and says “(these are my) heroes” and at that moment points to himself, to cause us to subconsciously associate the word “hero” with him.
He then rouses emotion for the troops and hard working people, and says he will keep their dream alive “as President of the United States.” He uses “as” here as an implied causality, another powerful linking statement. Notice then how he keeps his palms towards himself, as the crowd cheers, sending the message of focusing that cheering on him. This is the same gesture he uses sometimes to discuss himself.
Obama can change positions from one day to the next151 to mirror McCain’s positions, and through his hypnotic speech make people believe that Obama feels as strongly as McCain does on these issues.
Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson, M.D. Volume 1, p147-149. The primary focus of this document has been the linking statement using overt causation, the most powerful, however, other linking statements are also used by Obama.
He then anchors “we will keep our promise to every young American” with his thumb and forefinger technique – suggesting he will keep his promise to us.
Obama consistently delivers a very simplistic hypnotic pace. “Now is the time…now is the time…”. The message is simply 1. pen in your hand, and 2. Obama. and 3. now is the time.
Obama caught hypnotically linking himself with John F. Kennedy:
Obama then mentions John F. Kennedy 27:47 (“what John F. Kennedy called our international and moral strength”), which he anchors with his thumb and forefinger. He then says “yes government must lead…but each of us” and as he says “us” he points that same thumb and forefinger anchor at himself (it doesn’t have to be simultaneous or immediate), subconsciously programming us to look upon him as John F. Kennedy. Then he repeats the word “yes’ in the middle of that anchoring, and does another palm towards himself, reaffirming the JFK programming yet again.
It is an unlikely coincidence because he uses the same thumb and forefinger hand gesture to discuss Kennedy’s values, and then points that same gesture at himself a moment later. People believe he is John F. Kennedy, and have no conscious awareness of the connection that he is causing through subconscious manipulation. Notice this is the exact technique Obama used in his St. Paul speech, discussed above, when he anchored “a leader you deeply believe in.” Obama again pacing and leading This is just another of countless examples. Barack Obama said regarding healthcare:
“It’s time to finally challenge the special interests and provide universal health care for all.” (Pace and Pace) “That’s why I’m running for President of the United States” (Lead) “because I believe that health care should be guaranteed for every American who wants it and affordable for every American who needs it. (Pace and Pace)
Notice how powerful this statement by Obama sounds, while logically empty. Notice how he says that’s why he’s running for President, before the “because.” Odd to be certain, but we let is pass because we do not understand the causation linkage that he is prepping our subconscious for. Notice how it makes no logical sense that its time to change special interests and provide universal health care, that’s why I am running for President. There is no logical connection between those statements - Maybe that is a reason why someone who has fought against special interests, or someone who has solved healthcare problems or at least has knowledge about these issues should be President. However, what he says is its time to change Washington and provide healthcare, and “that is why I am running for President.” The purported logic
comes after as to not interfere with the pace and lead causality statement. Even that purported logic provides no real basis. It is just another pace. If Obama would have said the reason he should be President is because he believes in healthcare, it wouldn’t work as a pace because the audience doesn’t know what he believes – that is why he uses what the audience believes, even though it diverges from logic in order to follow perfectly the hypnosis principle of pacing and leading. Because he believes healthcare should be guaranteed for everyone who wants it, and affordable for everyone who needs it? Who doesn’t believe that? It is a statement everyone can agree with, used as a pace. Notice how powerful this statement sounds, yet has absolutely no logical basis. Because he believes everyone who wants medical care should have it, that is why the President of the United States should be no person other than Barack Obama? The use of the most powerful linking statement here repeatedly, “because”, is more that suspicious. However, the proof, is that he is a Harvard Attorney, and he knows not to use a “because” when he is not making a proper argument that one thing causes another. Drafting such false logic sticks out to attorneys like a sore thumb and he cannot accidentally make this mistake once, let alone three times in one paragraph, and consistently throughout his speeches.
