Obama and Thought Control

Kerry Patton, a combat disabled veteran, is the author of Contracted: America’s Secret Warriors (Quiet Owl Books). You can follow him on Facebook or at kerry-patton.com.


“Language and words are how we encapsulate meaning. Hence, if you control language, you control thought.” (Changingminds.org)

Time and again, “catch phrases” are used amongst national security leaders. This includes military, political appointees, and even our own President. Key terms are used to control our own thoughts. More and more are popping up and most recently, the greatest catch phrase of all is beginning to circulate the internet: “Kinetic Military Action Promoting Humanitarianism.”

In one way or another, numerous members within the current administration have stated that the actions occurring in Libya are “Kinetic Military Actions Promoting Humanitarianism.” They have all stressed that fulfilling such activity is not to be construed as a declaration of war. Only a political appointee with a legal background could justify this statement.

Kinetic normally refers to motion. In a military sense, the term has moved to a new meaning: lethal. Today, U.S. troops engage in kinetic (lethal) and non-kinetic (non-lethal) operations. In Afghanistan, one could observe both types of operations through kill and capture of High Valued Targets or the building of schools and medical clinics in an attempt to “win hearts and minds.”  Hmm, another catch phrase used too often to dupe the masses.

The actions taking place in Libya are lethal activities by our very own military-kinetic in nature. One must question though how any activity involving the killing of another can be construed as humanitarian in nature. Dissecting catch phrases to understand true meaning is essential today for anyone interested in better understanding what our own administration is really up to: controlling thoughts of the people.

Some of the more frequently used catch phrases to control thoughts are more than amusing:

Social Justice – originally refers to the principle of equality and solidarity for greater economic egalitarianism through increased taxation, income and property redistribution. Seems more like a one way streak for those that are too lazy to capitalize on the never ending opportunities for success; not truly social or just at all.

Battle Rhythm — describes those events that a unit conducts on a recurring basis that facilitates setting the conditions for success. Question: doesn’t a unit need to be engaged in tactical “battle” to determine the rhythm if this is the case? The average “battle” in Afghanistan lasts only a few short minutes. So, why do military leaders to include even those in the Pentagon talk about the “battle rhythm” on a daily bases when they aren’t even involved in the tactical battle? Maybe it should be referred to as the “war rhythm.”

Freedom of Information — is legislation pertaining rules that guarantee access to data held by the state.  If access to such information is presumably free and guaranteed, why does it take so long to obtain if it can be obtained at all? Oftentimes, replies from inquiries of such data come back “confidential” meaning, it’s not publicly accessible.

And the most frequent that is likely to be used by President Obama when he addresses the nation is “let me be clear.” Barrack, you could not be so cluttered if you tried. Yes, many can see right through you though so maybe you are clear but that clarity is not free from flaw.

Who knows, maybe in due time, another leader will take over a significant position of authority and decide to bring back carpet bombings. To win the hearts and minds of Al Gore and his environmentalist, along with many other American people, this activity should be referred to as “Expeditionary Green Cultivation Activities.” It can’t be any worse than Kinetic Military Action Promoting Humanitarianism.

Kerry Patton has served in the U.S. Defense and Justice departments, and as a contractor within the Homeland Security and State departments. He has worked in South America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe, focusing on intelligence and security interviewing current and former terrorists, including members of the Taliban.

    Capital punishment does not equate to self defense. If the sole goal is defense, incarceration can accomplish that task.

    Capital punishment is a premeditated killing of someone already under state control.

      President Obama has no intention to uphold the Oath of office. The US Constitution has been ignored. He has deceived the public, and will continue to ignore the Rule of law. Government was intended to serve-not to dominate.

      One point made by James R. Evans in his recent book "America's Choice"
      Does this legislation: Or idea recognize that government is capable of creating wealth?

      Capital punishment does equate to self defense. Incarceration is a joke – many violent criminals – even murderers – are released to murder again. Capital punishment is premeditated justice for murderers.

  • Amused

      Well, at least the meaning of "semi-literate incoherency" is still secure. Thanks for that, at least.

  • Amused

    What you have just described Kerry is what politicians on both sides have been doing since the Republic was formed . Appeasling to dullkards who cannot think for themselves , but noinetheless will yield a vote .

    Obama,a past CIA Operative and the CIA studied PsyOps,the power of influencing masses of people with Psychological tactics. As one trained in Psychology (B.S.in Psychology,Excelsior College)I know that mass hypnosis is both feasible and effective.

    • conservative4ever

      I, for one, am not and will not be hypnotized by these leftists. I have spent a lot of time over the last 3 years educating myself about these people and learning leftist-speak, becuse what they say must be listened to in that mindset to understand what they really mean.. How Orwellian of them.

    • Liberty Clinger

      Mass psychosis would be more accurate than mass hypnosis.

      “Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously (the lie and the truth), and accepting both of them (Insanity)… with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth… Those who have the best knowledge of what is happening are also those who are furthest from seeing the world as it is; in general the greater the understanding the greater the delusion; the more intelligent the less sane… You believe that reality is something objective, external, existing in its own right. You also believe that the nature of reality is self-evident… I tell you Winston that reality is not external. Reality exists in the human mind and nowhere else; not in the individual mind, which can make mistakes and in any case soon perishes; only in the mind of the Party, which is collective and immortal. Whatever the Party holds to be truth is truth… If human equality is to be forever averted; if the "high," as we have called them, are to keep their places permanently; then the prevailing mental condition must be controlled insanity.” George Orwell – 1984

    The man is despicable in every way. His latest executive order will blow $20 million of OUR money to bring in Palestinian Hamas members or supporters to settle here, the folks who danced on their streets in celebration of 9/11. This is the last straw. It would not surprise me that he, too, danced in secret that day. Real "Social Justice" would be his impeachment.

  • Jim_C

    Please, God, let Obama's special "mind control tactics" actually work. I don't know much about this George Soros, but just given this site's input, it sounds like he needs to take this country over yesterday. Please, Lord, speed it up!

    It is always interesting to watch the newbie liars come to the rescue of long standing liars with ever more trickey ways of enforcing their agenda.
    But it is the same old slippery slopes of the ancient days. It is the same old masking and pulling wool over the eyes of people.
    It is the same old power quest that was in force in the days of Babel.
    But what they never seem to understand is that the ending has always been the same.
    One has to wonder why they enjoy flogging that long dead horse.

      Yes, the constant Babbling-On. Oh the value of a thoughtful education and the time to think. Just imagine America's Founders reading substantive texts in both daylight and by candlelight, and having the time to think about what they read riding on a horse, in a carriage, or working on fields and talking about such things among friends day and night, devoid of radio, TV and their PCs. Remember in Daniel something about information abounding and people running to and fro in the latter days (implying lots more information available but little understanding and wisdom)?

    Repeating the words Change and Hope over and over and over did the brainwashing quite well. Most people are too lazy or simply not capable of thinking for themselves. Years in college will wipe out that ability from anyone! lol It takes courage to insist on reality for what it is and not rely on religious or political or even social constructs. Alas, most are their delusions, reality not even on the menu. Here's hoping the future holds great awareness for all….

    • Amused

      Oh yea , just like repeating the words Socialist and marxist , yup all them lazy people will start to believe it , ya know BRAINWASHED . And NOW , even the mighty Donald , has been "thought controlled " …lol…but by the Birthers !!!

      LOL…and now this rubbish , from alleged educated people , on WOOooooooo, "thought control " …oh yea , its those "key words and phrases " …man what a bunch of imbeciles . It's a good thing most of these people are on blogs and are of no real consequence outside of their own little paranoid hatefull world .
      Keep your in foil hats on , that'll protect you from the Obama brain waves that are trying to control you . Man the world must be a scary place for some of you folks, you do have my pity .

      • sodacrackers2

        Amused, your name says it all. There is a difference in using words like the Orwellian ones being used by Obama, Soros, and the other marxists, and speaking the truth about Obama being a marxist/socialist/communist. The truth has no agenda. It is verifiable by anyone who is still able to think and read. You probably will very shortly stop being amused, or maybe just enjoy your servitude.

  • Jim_C

    No nuttier than imagining a George Soros conspiracy or claiming Obama is practicing "thought control."

    “The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others… We are different from all the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we're doing… Power is not a means, it is an end… The object of power is power… Always there will be the intoxication of power… We are the Priests of Power… Power is power over human beings, over the body; but above all over the mind." George Orwell – 1984

    • Jim_C

      If we're honest, and truly cling to liberty, we'd realize this affliction affects both parties and revamp our election system so that our leaders are actually chosen by us rather than prepackaged and pre-anointed. We've got people walking out the door of the SEC and into boardrooms on Wall Street and vice versa. From Congress straight to K street. I'd imagine the TEA party wouldn't care for this arrangement but they don't seem to focus on it.

      "She (Julia) did not feel the abyss opening beneath her feet at the thought of lies becoming truth."

      (Winston Smith): "The belief that nothing exists outside your own mind; surely there must be some way of demonstrating that it was false… There was truth and there was untruth; and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad."

        Deluded paranoids trying to explain reality ….now I've heard it all . You folks need some zoloff coupled with counseling .

    Paul Allen and Bill Gates, childhood friends with a passion in computer programming, were seeking to make a successful business utilizing their shared skills. The January 1975 issue of Popular Electronics featured Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems's (MITS) Altair 8800 microcomputer. Allen noticed that they could program a BASIC interpreter for the device; after a call from Gates claiming to have a working interpreter, MITS requested a demonstration.
