CA governor Jerry Brown is a psychopath: ‘It’s all a lie. I don’t have a plan for California’

Psychopathy is a subcategory or extension of antisocial personality disorder. The hallmark attributes of a psychopath include pathological lying, a lack of empathy for others, selfishness, lack of guilt, and a superficial charm that’s deployed to manipulate others.

Not all psychopaths are violent serial killers. Many psychopaths actually find great success in the business world thanks to their ruthless nature — a disproportionate number of CEOs are psychopaths. Some other popular career paths for psychopaths include politics, law, media, and sales.

Jerry Brown, 79, Democrat, is a lifetime politician and the 34th (1975-1983) and 39th (since January 2011) Governor of California. In 1995, Brown was a radio talk show host and did not hold any elective office, after having failed in his 1992 presidential bid.

Jerry Brown is also a psychopath.

On April 16, 1995, Jerry Brown was interviewed on CNN’s Late Edition.

Brown said he didn’t have to lie anymore now that he’s no longer a politician. Responding to CNN anchor Frank Sesno’s question, “What did you lie about when you were governor?,” Brown said:

“All right. Here’s what. It’s all a lie. You run for office and the assumption is ‘Oh, I know what to do.’ You don’t! I didn’t have a plan for California. [Bill] Clinton doesn’t have a plan. Bush [Sr.] doesn’t have a plan . . . . You say you’re going to lower taxes, you’re gonna put people to work, you’re gonna improve the schools . . . we’re gonna stop crime. [But] crime is up and schools are worse, taxes are higher. I mean, be real!”

In July 2010, the Meg Whitman for Governor campaign released Brown’s stunning CNN interview as a 30-second statewide television ad.

Despite that, Californians elected Jerry “It’s all a lie” Brown as their governor.

The most commonly used device for identifying psychopaths is the Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R), a 20-item inventory of personality traits and recorded behaviors developed by Dr. Robert D. Hare in the 1970s.

Below is a self-administered psychopathy test, using 20 traits of Dr. Hare’s Psychopathy Checklist-Revised (PCL-R). For each attribute, give yourself a score of 0 to 2, where 0 = “not at all descriptive of me”; 1 = “somewhat descriptive”; and 2 = “describes me perfectly”.

  1. glib and superficial charm
  2. grandiose (exaggeratedly high) estimation of self
  3. need for stimulation
  4. pathological lying
  5. cunning and manipulativeness
  6. lack of remorse or guilt
  7. shallow affect (superficial emotional responsiveness)
  8. callousness and lack of empathy
  9. parasitic lifestyle
  10. poor behavioral controls
  11. sexual promiscuity
  12. early behavior problems
  13. lack of realistic long-term goals
  14. impulsivity
  15. irresponsibility
  16. failure to accept responsibility for own actions
  17. many short-term marital relationships
  18. juvenile delinquency
  19. revocation of conditional release
  20. criminal versatility

When properly completed by a qualified professional, the PCL-R provides a total score that indicates how closely the test subject matches the “perfect” score that a classic or prototypical psychopath would rate. A prototypical psychopath would receive a maximum score of 40, while someone with absolutely no psychopathic traits or tendencies would receive a score of zero. A score of 30 or above qualifies a person for a diagnosis of psychopathy. People with no criminal backgrounds normally score around 5. Many non-psychopathic criminal offenders score around 22.

When I first posted the psychopathy check-list in November 2015, I had included a poll (see below), which showed that, happily and as we would expect, the majority of FOTM readers who took the self-administered test got a low score.

But there’s actually a simpler test for psychopathy. 

Read this question, come up with an answer, and then scroll down to the bottom for the result. This is not a trick question.

A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did not know. She thought this guy was amazing. She believed him to be her dream guy so much, that she fell in love with him right there, but never asked for his number and could not find him. A few days later she killed her sister.

Question: What is her motive for killing her sister?

[Give this some thought before you answer]







She was hoping the guy would appear at the funeral again.

If you answered this correctly, you think like a psychopath. This test was devised by a famous American psychologist who used it to determine if one has the same mentality as a killer. Many arrested serial killers took part in the test and answered the question correctly.

If you didn’t answer the question correctly, good for you.

If you got the correct answer, please let us know so we can take you off our email list!

  2. A resident of California for half a century, I have seen decay
    accelerate since Moonbeam’s father, Pat Brown, built the
    state infrastructure and other features. Like many homosexuals
    Moonbeam has self-loathing and hatred for straights and
    society in general. Jerry has gotten his revenge.
    His inviting all Mexicans to move to California is
    the smoking gun moment of his genocidal madness.
    California is no longer the Golden state. It is the
    suicide state. Collapse and anarchy await us.

    I got the correct answer, but in this age of Netflix, I must be forgiven. My wife and I love watching Midsomer Murders, and a couple other British crime shows. I’m pretty sure that exact plot was used in some episode or other, or close enough that I could “solve” the case. Right? Or am I still crazy?😎

  5. I’m guessing a high percentage of entertainers and athletes also score high on the test. OTOH, I think those who score 0 may want to check for a pulse.

    Oh, I thought maybe the psycho woman’s sister was her “dream” guy’s wife…

    As for why anyone would vote for someone like Moonbeam, or Franken, or Waters, or many other pols (many who have served multiple terms), my brain just can’t fathom such things. It doesn’t work that way… It’s illogical to vote for such folks. And immoral.

    What does that say for such populations? Either they’re morons, or immoral, or those who should be voting aren’t, or aren’t even registered, or those who are voting are doing so illegally. And out of selfish or wrongly-guided desires and false promises.

  7. Just curious. If a father put his son into mental hospitals, had the son pay for the mental hospital bills and later told his son that he, the father, paid for all of the hospital bills, would the father be a sociopath or a psychopath?

    I guess I didn’t do to bad on the question; my first thought was that her and her sister both fell for the man so she eliminated her competition, which would make her a psycho.

    As for the psycho checklist, I have to confess to one of the traits; that is number 13, as I have never set any long term goals; but I really don’t consider that such a serious fault…..Dang….may be that means I’m psychotic!

  13. My grand total score is 4. I scored 4 “1’s.”
    The characteristics of a psychopathic personality disorder that stand out to me are the manipulation and aggression while, at the same time, maintaining a smooth and relaxed demeanor. Kind of like a roiling hatred on the inside, with a veneer of charisma on the outside.
    On a job I will not name, I had a supervisor whom I overheard (out of her eyesight) admit to having killed at least 32 people. She committed these murders with her partner in that conversation in that conversation. From looking at these people, one would never suspect that. Yet this really happened.

    This woman would beat Hillary Clinton in a cage match.

    Evil is rife in the world. Pius XII said, around 1954 (?) that there was “more sin now than at any time in human history.” I suspect he was right when he said that, and, if he could see what’s happened since, his eyes would pop right out of his head! (Especially within the Church he headed!)
    Yet we are entering, I believe, that Period in History some call “The Devil’s Final Battle.” We are being primed and geared up for it. This period shall be unique in the qualities and characteristics, as well as the numbers. It shall be a period of Unique Evil, yet it will be a period of Great (but largely unseen) Good. I believe that God Has Commanded that His Church AND the human race, corporately, shall have to endure the same Passion that Our Lord endured on the Cross. This way, God will be seen to have compared the Passion of the Church and the passion of humanity with the Passion of His Son. Jesus Said that when He returned, He would “convict” the world. I believe that this will be the basic way He will do it.

    When this happens, the psychopaths will know, with absolute and inescapable certainty, that there will be NO ESCAPE from the MONSTERS they chose to become.

    • Evil can be very subtle–especially among religious, anti-Christian types. Some of the most wicked people I have ever met were very religious (went to church on Sunday, etc) and rejected Christ.

      Here is a great comparison between Zion (spiritual Christianity/Kingdom of Heaven) and Babylon (world system/Kingdom of Hell):

      The Babylonish Church–Isaac Penington

      “BABYLON is the spiritual fabric of iniquity; the mystical great city of the great king of darkness; built in imitation of Zion, painted just like Zion, that it might be taken for Zion, and be worshipped there, instead of the true, eternal, ever living God, and King of Zion.”

      “And here, in this there is a great difference between the vessels of Zion, and the vessels of Babylon. The vessels of Zion, they are weak, earthen, foolish, contemptible to the eye of man’s wisdom, (which cannot look for any great matter of excellency there); but the treasure, the liquor of life in them, is precious. The vessels of Babylon make a great show, appear very holy, very heavenly, very zealous for God and Christ, and for the setting up of his church and ordinances all over the world. Thus they appear outside; but they are sepulchers; there is rottenness within. Under all this there lodges an unclean, an unsanctified heart; a heart unsubdued to the spirit and power of the gospel, while it makes such a great show of subjection and obedience to the letter.”

      “But their souls never knew the fire in Zion, and the furnace in Jerusalem; by which the very inwards of their spirits must be cleansed, before the pure eye of life is opened which can see Zion.”

      “And it is a spiritual city, a mystical city, a city built by the working of the mystery of iniquity, 2 Thes 2:7. whereupon she is called mystery. Rev 17:5. It is not a city of plain wickedness, but a city of sin that is hidden; of sin keeping its life under a covering, under a form of godliness; of sin reigning in the heart under zeal, under devotion, under praying, believing, worshipping, hoping, waiting, etc. Where sin lies hidden within under these, there is Babylon; there is the mystery of witchcraft; there is the painted throne of Satan; there is spiritual Egypt and Sodom, where the Lord of life is daily crucified. This is the city, the mystical city, the spiritual city. Rev. 11:8.”

      –Isaac Penington

  14. I was just reading this a few days ago.

    It’s about Don Henley and his penchant for underage girls, and how powerful people, including Jerry Brown and Linda Rondstadt, covered for him. I know this has been mentioned here before, but I didn’t know the whole story. It’s very interesting that one of the young girls he drugged and raped in 1980 is now, allegedly, the wife of a Republican politician in Northern California. They say she has the evidence, which includes polaroids. Henley’s song “Dirty Laundry” was about this.

    Here is another write up of the exact same story as the link above, but fills in names.

  16. Whoa, cowboy! Not necessarily, there…

    It is not impossible for a person to recognize how awful some people are at their very core, without themselves being a sufferer of the same afflictions.

    In these times, the very survival of decent persons is being driven by their need to recognize and understand this aberrant nature of some other persons. It is the same with a variety of other “cons” that have become so commonplace. Just look at what happens when you try and sell a high-ticket item on E Bay or Craig’s List.

    This is what separates most of the sheeple from those of us that have “wised up” to their “tricks”. Gotta think like a crook to keep from being a victim of those very same crooks !!!

    Remember, it was the Devil’s greatest achievement to convince the unknowing that he did not even exist.

  20. Moonbeam, well buddy you should really just go away. And don’t take your pension and benefits either, because you didn’t earn any of it.
    I’m wondering why he admitted it, is he that lost? Or is he bragging? I think he may be in total cognitive surrender here.

    I sure do miss FOTM, but my studies online take so much of my time. I do sneak in now and then to read the topics. Psychopaths have defiled consciences and delight in hurting others. Not all are mass murderers, some are passive aggressive, like moon beam Jerry Brown. They have no remorse and answer to their own evil power. As in Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal maintained his own consistent set of values, He used charm and good manners. He always said ‘thank you Clarice”. Leeann

      Dr. Eowyn: I’m so glad I failed the funeral question. Also, my grandmother was a “hands on gram” a wonderful Christian woman who lived her faith. She was my guide throughout the formative years up to age 12. On the inventory list, I questioned my own heart seriously, therefore my score was zero. I’ve always felt out of place in this world.

  22. I remember Brown well having lived in California when he was Governor the first time. My wife and I would occasionally go to the cathedral in Sacramento and he would be attending Mass there.

    Back then he was just an odd, aesthetic sort of guy. He lived alone and many suspected he was gay. Despite rumors of a romance with Linda Ronstadt, it turns out he was more interested in Don Henley.

    He refused to live in the Governor’s mansion, (either the old one which was nice, or the new one Ronny Raygun had built – it was hideous), and lived in a studio apartment walking distance from the Capitol.

    His father was actually a pretty good governor. At least he was respected and well-liked. It was said that Jerry was destined to be a priest. At the time I could have visualized that. He had the personality.

    The current version seems insane. He is obviously angry and determined to inflict his will on everybody. I think he’s probably been insane all his life. I grew up with many children of politicians and lobbyists who had no time for their families. They often ended up this way.

    While I won’t argue that there aren’t people that vote for them, I don’t really think the political makeup is an accurate reflection of public sentiment. Growing up there it was always amazing how out-of-step the politicians were with the populace. There was no way to show how or why many were elected.

    I long ago came to the conclusion that the whole thing is rigged. I haven’t changed my mind.


    • Two individuals running for Kalifornia governor now are the former mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa and Gavin Newsom, former San Francisco mayor and current CA lieutenant governor.

      Both are democrats, career politicians and would have no problem filling Moonbeam’s shoes. Normal is not a word fitting these two candidates. The rigged system ensures that another loon gets to occupy the governor’s office in Sacramento.
