The Common Sense Show

tyranny tj and obama

The Obama administration has a new partner in crime and it is the American Psychiatric Association (APA).  The APA created the new Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (5th Edition) which was recently adopted. DSM 5 is highly controversial and has sparked outrage from the mental health practitioners. As many of these practitioners point out, the new DSM-V makes a pathology out simple and normal behaviors such as grieving for the loss of a loved one.

This constitutes a new subjective approach in diagnosing of mental illness that it promises  to end free speech and any form of political dissent. The federal government has already declared anyone who oppose its unconstitutional policies as having “political paranoia,”  which is now diagnosed as a type of mental illness.

Psychiatry Targets Internet Conspiracy Theorists

Particularly disturbing is that the new manual targets internet users and conspiracy theorists. If someone is judged, by some vague set of criteria, to spend too much time on the internet, they could be judged to be mentally ill and ineligible to own a gun. How are you receiving this information? The chances are that you are, at least according to Obama and Biden, giving in to your internet addiction and reading this article. Under the new Obama guidelines this would be grounds for gun confiscation. The alternative media is predicated on internet readership and listenership. These groups would be among the first groups to oppose a martial law crackdown, and now they are the first to be targeted.

Subsequently, this is just another backdoor method to disarm citizens who would oppose the abject tyranny being imposed upon America. And these facts sum up what is truly behind the Obama administration’s latest attack upon gun ownership because they want to prey upon a defenseless nation by disarming as many of us as possible before the purges can begin in earnest.

Under Obama’s new proposed gun regulations, anyone who has a diagnosable, or is potentially diagnosable (i.e. pre-crime) for being mentally ill, can have their gun confiscated. Vice President Biden even feels that they can violate HIPPA privacy regulations in requiring the states to report who has been treated for a mental illness. Therefore, in the name of confiscating your gun, this administration thinks it is acceptable to violate federal privacy laws.

hat is interesting to me is that the Obama administration is not even trying to distinguish between mental illnesses in terms of who should, or should not own a gun. In the eyes of the Obama administration, all mental illnesses are created equal. A person with a phobia is just as dangerous as a sociopath. One in six Americans have a “diagnosable anxiety disorder”. This is completely understandable given the economic and political times that we live in. However, under the new proposed guidelines, all of these people would be ineligible to have a gun in their possession even though there is not a shred of research which indicates this population would be inclined towards gun violence any more than any other population.

I once predicted that any form of political protest would be demonized and used as the basis for the administration of assignment a mentally ill label upon anyone who disagrees with the government.

Political Schizophrenia

This is the new  Soviet style political schizophrenia. We will see confinements among the alternative media and the veterans for things like ADHD, grieving, normal anxiety, bad eating habits, etc. All of these behaviors and more have been categorized as pathologies under the Obama administration and a supportive American Psychiatric Association.

Oppositional Defiant Disorder Is the Newest Weapon Against Political Dissent

When I went through my clinical training, the Bible of mental illness, The Statistical and Diagnostic Manual (DSM-4r) defined Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) as a highly controversial mentally illness used to describe children and teens as mentally ill they exhibited disobedience and defiance. When I was first nationally credentialed, most practitioners did not take this diagnosis seriously and we mistakenly believed that it would fade away. We uniformly believed this to be true because defiance and oppositional behaviors are hallmark traits of healthy rebellion exhibited by children and teens as they seek independence. Rather than ODD fading away, the diagnosis has become the tool of the ruling elite.

The new DSM (5) has expanded the definition of ODD to include adults who exemplify “paranoid ideation” about the government and frequently express these delusional ideations on the internet.

In its analysis of the political abuse of psychiatry in both the Soviet Union and China, The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law. stated that “Psychiatric incarceration of mentally healthy people is uniformly understood to be a particularly pernicious form of repression, because it uses the powerful modalities of medicine as tools of punishment, and it compounds a deep affront to human rights with deception and fraud…”


The Obama people are trying to take this country down a very slippery slope. They are seeking to disarm as many Americans as possible with all available means such what has been described in this article.

The historical precedent, and subsequent danger of seizing guns under such a false pretense, has been well-established. Therefore, I will not belabor a well-established point, that all 19 genocides in the 20th century were preceded by gun confiscation. Why should we consider Obama’s recent actions to be any less threatening of deadly?

What is even more frightening, is the new ODD diagnosis will not just seize guns. It will commandeer a person’s mind through incarceration, for their own good of course, and forced drugging which will chemically castrate the brains of all arrested political dissidents.

We already know that Obamacare forces doctors to ask the gun ownership status of their patients. It is not a leap of logic that anyone owning a gun will soon be diagnosed with yet another manufactured mental illness tied to gun ownership.

I would like to hear from psychiatrists. Are you going to support this tyranny? Or, are you going to be an Oathkeeper to your profession and “do no harm” to your patients? Or, will you capitulate and goose-step your way through the new political prisons in America and do your part to suppress liberty?

    The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals

    Communist Goals – Congressional Record – Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

    (as read before Congress in 1963)

    #38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.

    #39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

    I apologize to you Dave for continually repeating this, but we need to take positive and lawful action, and we needed to do it yesterday.
    The Founders gave the People, as a branch of government, the singular authority to “execute the Laws of the Union”; Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15 of the Constitution. I’m not talking about people running around in the woods claiming to be militia, but rather the Militia of the several states as clearly stated in our laws.
    I note that supposed pro-2nd groups in particular are opposed to even investigating this authority, and its absolute necessity in this critical time. Most will tell me that the National Guard is now the “organized militia”, and that we are the “unorganized militia”. The National Guard does not meet the constitutional scrutiny to be militia as it is clearly a part of the army, nor does it have officers appointed by the states. “The “unorganized militia” (so called) is a constitutional impossibility. That title is outright deception. It really amounts to NO “militia” at all.”
    If you are part of the “unorganized militia”; where do you muster; who are your officers; what accoutrements are you required to own as part of the law; and what are your duties? In any fight the “unorganized militia” would be fodder for terrorists, and it we are indeed looking at foreign troops.
    I believe that the truth of the matter is that most have been brainwashed, and cowed as to being absolutely frightened to even speak of Militia. Some of the comments I’ve received are absolutely pathetic.
    This article shows more methodology aimed at the destruction of a free society. They will not stop. They have no fear of retaliation because they hear every day in the so-called patriot community that we must do this peacefully. Let the government fire the first shot. As an “unorganized militia” absorbing the first shot may very well be the last one. We need to know and really understand how critical this is, and we need to organize as provided by our Founders in law.

    Let me see if I understand this correctly. The pursuers of gun control are going to enforce the ban by using, uh, er. guns? As simple as that sounds I have a difficult time believing that the young PhDs who write the laws are going to arm themselves against the thugs who issue dictums against their own will. These are the CONstructs of a government or ruling party anywhere in this world that have made their own lives obsolete. Help Wanted: Water Carriers and Wood Gatherers, Warmongers and Politicians are the only qualifications necessary.

  6. Paul April 27, 2014 at 6:47 am

    I do not understand why you worry about gun confiscation. If you are prepared to die if they try to take your gun, and also help the other gun owners if Obama tries to take there’s . It’s like give me liberty or give me death you mean it or you don’t. If you let Government take your guns in time you will look like a Jew back in the days of the German Nazi. Bottom line you give up your gun and you give up you life.

    I have worked in the psychiatric field for 15 years, I’m also a patriot. Some of your assertions may be technically correct, but let me tell you that most people in the psychiatric field are pretty liberty-minded don’t subscribed to the nonsense coming from national and world academia. In fact, there are patients we KNOW are quite dangerous, but because of the privacy laws and laws that limit restriction of freedoms of mentally ill persons, we can’t do a thing about it except turn them loose on the community. Ironically, at least here in CA, mental health laws afford MORE freedom to mentally ill people than the general population! (With the exception that anyone who has been on a 72-hour hold for evaluation is barred from owning firearms for 5 years, but law enforcement or the clinician must show PROBABLE CAUSE why the hold should be written). There has only been 1 instance in my 15 years where I had to deflect a case of an erroneous diagnosis of “Delusional Disorder” on a patient who came in upset about the NWO and Illuminati plans. I pointed out to the triage team that what this patient was saying was true and I could prove every bit of it – he was discharged from services with no diagnosis. Luckily for all of us, the globalists’ plans at least in this arena, aren’t working out as they’d hoped.


  12. David McElroy April 27, 2014 at 7:55 am

    Psychiatry, and psychology, are highly subjective and there are no objective “hard science” medical tests for any of their mental illnesses diagnosed. Thus, these “soft sciences” lend themselves to become the legal choice for tyrants wishing to outlaw all opposition, dissent, and alternative means.

  13. Frank C April 27, 2014 at 7:58 am

    Hi Dave, I just wanted to comment on the HIPPA comment that you made in your excellent article. I am not sure if this applies to you, but contrary to popular belief HIPPA laws were not instituted for the protection of the patient or his/her rights. They were initiated to aid the Health Care Industry to hide their malpractice and therefore protect the Hospitals and Doctors. It’s just like the ACA. It’s supposed to by it’s name provide “affordable Health Care” but like most policies of the Liberals it does exactly the opposite. I am a Psychiatric RN and I have seen this in action for many years. HIPPA keeps doctors and nurses from copying files which they may use to bring charges of fraud or malpractice with against other Doctors, Nurses or the Hospitals themselves. Protection to the patient was just window dressing to make the policy more palatable to the public.

    One addendum, Dave .. psychiatry + insurance. Insurance issuers will be mobilized .. “Yes, you have Constitutional Guarantees, but we won’t cover you if you own or use guns. We have equal rights under the Law whom we will insure.”

    I’m not in the least surprised by this. Remember, everything Adolf Hitler did was made perfectly legal. Obama, in the same way, wants to make essentially every tyrannical, murderous action by .gov thugs “legal.” At least with regard to legalities he will be 100% successful.

    The question that matters, however, is very different. “How long until the people say enough?” As Jefferson succinctly stated, “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.”

    We are now at that point.

    Between the grotesque “laws” you describe, the in-your-face corruption and hypocrisy, the polling which indicates ~1/2 of Americans fear the government, and the growing ridicule of government throughout the country via social media, the legitimacy of government is fast eroding. As it fades, the response by government is increasing levels of force and intimidation.

    Such tactics are effective against a cowed, already disarmed population. But we are NOT cowed, and we are certainly armed… 100 million civilians with > 300 million guns… against ~3 million .gov trigger-pullers.

    They know the numbers as well as us… and they know their ONLY hope is through intimidation.

    We know how well that worked in Bunkerville, NV. Which means the next confrontation will require an absurdly large show of force, lest they lose all remaining credibility. If they fail- either through losing the next confrontation OR doing something which causes them to lose any semblance of a moral high-ground- the armed and unbowed citizens will start pushing back across a broad spectrum against the thuggish government.

    These petty efforts by the soetero administration are transparently weak grasping of straws. THEY WILL FAIL.

    I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for some courageous prosecutor indicting at least one
    psychiatrist as an accessory for murder and suicide, for how many psychiatrist are passing out SSRI drugs like candy to kids and others who turn around a commit murder and suicides? How many?

  22. Mongoose April 27, 2014 at 11:35 am

    Actually it is worse than that. The law reads that the “mentally ill” cannot own, or have access to weapons.

  24. Docs Boy April 27, 2014 at 12:34 pm

    Under present law you would have to be adjudicated mentally incompetent in a court of law, no physician gets to make that call arbitrarily. If that’s the case would any person disarmed be considered no longer responsible for their actions? Would they now qualify for disability benefits? What other ramifications would come into play with such a capricious finding without due process.

    It is time to point the finger where it belongs, at the Freemason lodges and all their sister lodges. Start peacefully protesting against these organizations in your towns. Start writing letters to the editors about what you know about what the Freemasons, Templars, ect. have been doing for thousands of years. Watch ‘Hidden in plain sight’ the best, most informative 4 hours you will ever spend. Start calling out the masons and watch how this house of cards falls down without a whimper.

    I am deeply concerned about this. A patients right to privacy is so important. I agree, Dave, you are correct! I was curious about what would happen to the billion dollar pill industry. Now it makes sense. They will throw the “mentally ill” into prisons and poison them with these zombie drugs. Please everyone, take steps to better yourself through cognitive therapy, education and self care. It stuns me that our soldiers, who see the most gruesome of war, in Iraq, etc. cannot come home and bear arms. Folks, we are in the fight of our lives. And we will fight this one battle at a time. God Bess You Dave! And all patriots who are willing to speak up and do something.

    Back in my day, DSM-II was the “Bible”. It was about 1 ¼” thick. By the mid 90’s, DSM-IV was published in three volumes, about 5” tall, lying on your desk. And, Now we have DSM-V! I have been reading Jon Rappoport, “Aids, Inc.”, since the mid 80’s. To validate and bring more clarity to what Dave has just stated, link to these sites and follow the links within the articles…

    It appears that the way DSM-5 is now being used is Pure, Unadulterated Tyranny.

    Another GREAT half report. But where’s the other half ? The solution part ? The “CSA” part ? Maybe even do a report on how THEY are getting us all in ( brainwashed, ) goose step to “not be racists.” That’s EXACTLY what’s happening with the “Clipper Show.” The owner did that on purpose. So all the dumb little sheeple can stage a “don’t be a racist vigil.”
    THEY are terrified of US creating our own country and not being under THEIR control. By the time YOU and other alternative media realize I’m right … all these things you and they write about in your “half reports,” will have come to pass.

    Wow, this article hits home. I shared a story on Infowars the other day and I would like to share it here also. I work as a deputy sheriff. Two of the things that is being used by “the system” is Baker Acts and Marchman Acts. A Baker Act is used by law enforcement, docs or shrinks to place someone under evaluation at a mental facility because they said or did something that “the professionals” “think” this person may harm themselves or others. A Marchman Act is when a family member or someone close to a person goes to the court and claims a person needs help because they have a mental issue or the person believes someone has an addiction. The judge looks at the claim, the person “swears” to, no investigation, signs the paper and the said person in question gets picked up by the Sheriff’s Office and taken to the correct “facility”.
    A few weeks ago I responded to a call at a local Catholic church. The call was to transport a female to the nearest “behavioral facility”. This female went to her priest to talk to him about her feeling down and wanting him to pray with her. She was looking for someone to talk to. She talks to her priest and he in turns around and calls in a psychiatrist. This doctor listens to what the priest tells her and then fills out a Baker Act form. When I got there and hear what had happened and I have this lady crying and telling me that she just wanted someone to talk to because of the way she was feeling, I refused to transport her. I also advised the priest that his conversation with the female should have been between him, her and God. The only thing she told him is that she has been feeling depressed lately and she wanted to talk to someone outside of family and friends. This is getting so out of hand. The doctors are Baker Acting more and more frequently. I know this is a way to disarm Americans. Once they go to these facilities then another piece of paper comes down that stated “these people” can no own or be in a residence where there is a firearm. I will share more of things I see and learn about. God Bless all of you.

    I have to laugh at comments here – from having lived on the streets for 18 years, from the standpoint of an honourably-discharged Vietnam-era veteran (21/2 years overseas, 1971 – 1974), and from being a person who worked late at night most of his life — all of this having brought me into contact with both “law enforcement” and (admittedly, on fewer occasions) mental health folks. You just don’t condense 64 years of living into one brief paragraph here But while I most certainly do not deny the existence, maybe even the prevalence, of true crazies, it is the government’s psychopaths whom you must fear the most. This is true on every level, from the White House & D.C. Whorehouse (Congress) to the three-lettered agencies and right down to street-level through America’s utterly criminal la w enforcement establishment and their extra-judicial assets (more psychopaths whom they use to commit crimes/enticements/etc.). I can coherently present a compelling case for an American citizen to be armed – from a Constitutional standpoint, but not as you or your readers may be expecting, making predictable references to the Amendments. Screw that! Look, everybody – the Founding Fathers did not need and Amendments, nor any court precedents, to arm themselves and fight tyranny – BECAUSE IT WAS TYRANNY! Do you get that? Do you get that this Nazi state (its police, the D.C. Whorehouse, the President, etc.) make up the law as they go along? Major legislation isn’t even read before being signed, at the behest of lobbyists and New World Order freaks, Presidents sign historically abominable Executive Orders as fast as 25% of the American people go to McDonalds each week (many for those worm-filler/cow eyeball Big Macs). In my old age now and with a lifetime of abuses having been borne, I realise that we must be like the Founding Fathers. To hell with Their Law! The Founding Fathers decided to make it up as they went along, just like King George III (despite admonitions from Lords North, Sandwich, Germaine, & Mansfield). Maybe I’m a product of my lineage – my mum & her family emigrated from England to America, where I was born. I learned the English language well as a young kid, and retained it well through all my life ordeals. That, and some judicious self-control in-between requisite outbursts, will get you a place in the annals of government oppression, folks. Cheers, on with the fight. Fight like they do, or you’ll just end up as a footnote in THEIR annals.
