Mike Adams, Sociopath aka the Health Ranger


Health-Ranger-Jacket-Smile-225

 

Martha Stout author of, The Sociopath Next Door, states that, “about one in twenty five individuals are sociopathic, meaning, essentially, that they do not have a conscious.”[1] Most people associate the word sociopath with criminals and serial killers.  While all serial killers are sociopaths not all sociopaths are serial killers.

Sociopaths live right under our noses.  They are pastors, ceo’s, politicians etcetera.  When a person has been intimately involved with a sociopath there is a phase in the healing process in which everywhere you turn you are seeing a sociopath.   After that phase passes it  is like having a radar for sociopaths.  It could be a look, a diva-like behavior, the written word or the spoken word that will trigger that radar.  Being a person of conscience we often justify or explain away these red flags in an attempt to make logical the illogical.

The Symptoms of this disorder, as defined by the DSM-IV-TR can be found on this blog post, https://ivonnemontijo.wordpress.com/2013/01/20/the-face-of-narcissism/ .

What does occur is that our radar does become honed. Those past experiences serve as shining lights spotlighting the sociopath/narcissist that is currently in front of us.

One such person is Mike Adams, the self-proclaimed, health ranger, activist-turned-scientist and owner of Natural News website.   I receive weekly e-mails with links to the website.  I decided to explore the web-site beyond the normal links to articles. I went to his biography page, http://www.healthranger.com/Health-Ranger-Biography.html and that is when the alarms, sirens and red lights started going off in my brain.

The verbage he used was so strikingly similar to the ex-sociopath that I was involved with (refer to the face of narcissism link above).

Does anyone really need to know what he scored on his college entrance exams and then that he chose not to go to MIT?

 “In college entrance exams and graduate school entrance exams, Adams scored in the 99.9th percentile across all U.S. students. He aced the English, Mathematics and Science sections of college entrance exams, scoring 100% on 3 out of 4 sections earning numerous offers of scholarships from various universities, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (which he chose not to attend)”. [2]

Below are some more of the red flags.

Adams chose not to attend graduate school but was offered numerous scholarships to do so. Instead, he decided to launch his own software company in 1993. That software company went on to become a multi-million-dollar entity that provided email technology solutions to many Fortune 500 firms and specialized in email alert technologies for universities and government offices.

Adams sold the software company in 2003 and launched Natural News (then NewsTarget.com). Natural News went on to become the internet’s most trafficked natural health news website, reaching millions of unique readers each month.

Mike Adams lived in Taiwan for two years and is nearly fluent in spoken Mandarin. Adams was also a resident of Ecuador for two years, from 2008 – 2010, where he built a 20-acre food forest containing over a hundred food-producing trees. He speaks conversational Spanish.

Adams has no criminal record and has never been arrested. How much do you want to bet that most likely he has a criminal record?

That whole biography page was just screaming out at me—sociopath –sociopath.  I did not want to be under the influence of the, ” I see dead people” syndrome so I referred to a trusted friend and colleague Paula of  http://paularenee.wordpress.com/ and sent her the links and asked her opinion as I consider her an expert in sociopaths.

Her response to me were the following links:

http://mike-adams-scam-artist.blogspot.com/

http://healthwyze.org/index.php/component/content/article/616-special-report-the-legend-of-mike-adams-and-the-reality.html

 

One of the sociopathic traits of someone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder is the smear campaign.  The attempt to make someone else look bad by misdirecting the light of truth towards somebody else and away from the sociopath.

And here in lies the irony because Mike Adams, health ranger/guru (sociopath) has two articles on his website:

“Warning Consumers About Fake Gurus and Sociopaths

  • Natural News editor Mike Adams is the author behind the world’s most popular article on “how to spot a sociopath,” currently featured in the top five search results on Google for the search term “sociopath.” (http://www.naturalnews.com/036112_sociopaths_cults_influence.html) This story has been viewed by millions of readers and continues to help people avoid being exploited by others with sociopathic tendancies .
  • Mike Adams (the Health Ranger) is also known for posting video parodies of “new age gurus,” making fun of their language and their repeated asking for donations for projects that never seem to come to fruition. His YouTube video called “Fake Gurus Exposed” depicts a guru named “Moonbeam Karma” asking for donations for a project involving magical twigs. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXoaC9fhXyc).”

So I went ahead and googled “sociopath” and lo and behold Mike Adams article did not appear in the top five search results of google.

What better way to deflect that you are a sociopath than by posting an article on sociopaths. The sociopath checklist that he posts should be read side by side with his biography page.

I am sure you are asking yourself, why is Ivonne writing about this?

Well I am going to tell you why. I am on many missions and one of those missions is to expose the faces of narcissists and sociopaths.

I have a Facebook page dedicated to this project, https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Faces-of-Narcissism-and-Sociopaths/1520998668119419?ref=bookmarks

There are too many of them on the planet and they make life a living hell for those around them. They are a plague to society and need to be exposed.

I am concluding that Mike Adams is one of these such sociopaths. I have unsubscribed from his newsletter as I do not want to support sociopaths.

I started this blog on Feb. 10 2010 with the intention to “share with the world my journey on the path to my soul mate.”

It’s been almost three years and I would love to be writing, “I found HIM!!!!!!” But alas that is not the case.

But what I can say is that, “I have found me.” And maybe at the moment that might be a better thing. In actuality it’s more of a better understanding of who I am and the choices that I have made in my relationships and how so many puzzle pieces over the years have interconnected.

And finally out of desperation I prayed.  I asked mother/father god to please show me what was the obstacle preventing true love from coming my way?

And I had an aha moment …………..

The Face of Narcissism……


“The narcissist can be likened to the Wizard of Oz.

A failed magician who PRETENDS to be a GREAT & POWERFUL WIZARD.”

How does one go from being an innocent child like this……

A Magician’s Point of View

When my magician friend Johnny Tong, had found out that I had been involved with the illusionist,  he had plenty to say on the subject.  With his permission these are his words regarding the Great and Amazing boy wonder magician.

I know him, he is everything I hate about magicians. The craft of magic opens you up to the thoughts of people, it is definitely a power. And like the great Stan Lee has said with great power comes great responsibility . Many magicians are dirty sad pathetic lonely men who use their talent to molest and twist with the hearts of many. Sociopaths often love magic, and practice……………….

Stepford Wives

One of the things that I have noticed many years ago when I first heard that the magician had gotten married was how much his first wife was a similar type to me.  We both came from an ethnic background.  I was Puerto Rican and she was Greek.  We both had long, wavy brown hair and big round eyes.  Her were blue mine were light brown.  What I didn’t know at the time was that another thing we had in common was a background in Theatre Arts. She with a B.F.A. in Theatre Production from the University of Arizona and I with a Minor in Theatre & Film from U.C.L.A.

Hmnnn…do you think we could pass for sisters?!!!!!
