How ISIS sells youth a perverted “purpose driven life”

Australian teenager Jake-Bilardi - another example of how ISIS sells youth a perverted "purpose driven life"?

Australian teenager Jake-Bilardi – another example of how ISIS sells youth a perverted “purpose driven life”?

An 18-year old Australian teen reportedly carried out a suicide bombing for ISIS and it’s another example of the way ISIS is using social media to recruit lost Western Youth by selling them purpose, meaning, and a chance to become a hero.

Remember, Rick Warren’s “The purpose driven life”, which sold 30 million copies worldwide? It gave people a positive purpose says Australian Human Behavior Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD. Australian Jake Bilardi is another example of a troubled teen who sought meaning and purpose after his mother died of Cancer 2 years ago and ISIS helped transform him from an Atheist into a Muslim terrorist.

Jake Bilardi was not poor and he was not uneducated; he was affluent and a gifted student. However, ISIS’ social media propaganda tapped into his vulnerabilities and confusion. Bilardi didn’t need a job – what he needed was meaning and purpose to his life – he found a perverted meaning.

ISIS’ propaganda videos display solidarity, strength, power; the videos seem to offer something more than just a religion – they offer a supernatural intention and objective – to serve God via sacrifice; the videos promote extreme honor in death, unparalleled brotherhood and unity and even try to offer the remedy to individual depression by fighting for a cause, living with honor and becoming a hero.

50 Shades of Grey promotes domestic violence

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015
50 Shades movie promotes domestic violence

50 Shades movie promotes domestic violence

50 Shades of Grey movie condones domestic violence and sexual abuse by reinforcing the notion that women are victims who can cure an abuser by accepting his abuse and offering him love, says Human Behavior and Relationship Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD.

The movie sets up women to fall for the most dangerous mistake possible – falling in love with the potential of a damaged man and making it her role to fix him, all the while giving her own power away and letting him emotionally & psychologically manipulate & control her, and physically & sexually abuse her.

In the movie, Christian Grey, who is a “cold-hearted predator with a dungeon filled with toys” clearly tells Anastasia Steele, who views him as an intimidating man, that her role is to receive and enjoy the sexual and psychological pain, control and manipulation for one reason alone – to please him.

Anastasia unveils the classic symptoms of a woman trapped in an abusive relationship: she is humiliated, controlled, stalked, manipulated, hit, diminished, criticized, alienates friends, experiences mood swings, becomes isolated and above all, begins to feel helpless that she cannot change him with her love.She wants to fix, heal and cure the abuser, thus blaming herself when she fails.

Three women are murdered every day in the US due to domestic violence. While many women attend the movie 50 Shades of Grey looking for a love story with kinky scenes, they are being brainwashed into thinking their role is to be submissive and embrace abuse in order to win the rich, powerful man. This is an extreme setback for equality.

Finally, the BDSM community (bondage, discipline, domination, submission, sadism and masochism) does not support 50 Shades of Grey because it is not an accurate depiction of BDSM and one real-life Dominatrix clearly states that there is a vast difference between abuse and BDSM.

The ‘death’ of Bill Cosby

Thursday, November 20th, 2014
The death of Bill Cosby

The ‘death’ of Bill Cosby

The accusations of rape by multiple women against Bill Cosby are not just bringing down his career with cancellations of shows, reruns and future projects – they have succeeded in ‘killing’ Bill Cosby for his millions of fans.


When we are faced with the stark claims that a warm, beloved TV star isn’t whom we believed him to be, we undergo our own pain – our image, emotional association and attachment to Bill Cosby are now shattered by the accusations and potential revelations that he is a rapist. In other words, the rape claims have destroyed our fond memories and affectionate associations. It is called Cognitive Dissonance – the struggle we face when there are two conflicting thoughts in our mind – in this case, the cuddly, gentle father figure of Bill Cosby clashing with the information that relays an image of a monster and rapist. We cannot hold two conflicting thoughts at the same time – we must abandon our image of the nice, loving man. And what happens to our numerous memories of Bill Cosby – of joy, laughter, warmth and guidance? They die. Fans can and will eventually speak of feeling duped, brainwashed and fooled by Bill Cosby ‘he isn’t who he pretended to be.’


Bill Cosby doesn’t need to be convicted by a jury in a court – the shocking claims by numerous women is enough to create doubt and eventually shatter all of our great memories. And quite sadly, more and more allegations are surfacing – including Therese Serignese who now claims she was raped in 1976, yet she says she willingly went back to his Las Vegas penthouse suite and stayed with him for several weeks and she adds they stayed in contact over the years; he helped her financially decades later giving her a gift of $15,000 for medical expenses. This behavior by Therese Serignese which, appears to be absurd and ‘unbelievable’, can be attributed to naivete, psychological manipulation and a teenage desire for fame, fortune and glamour.

All of these allegations will ultimately destroy any tender and beautiful memories fans have of Bill Cosby; once the amorous memories and emotions are gone, Bill Cosby dies with them. We can argue that Bill Cosby did it, but he also created the TV character Cliff Huxtable that we all fell in love with.

Raven Symone searching for identity

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

An American is colorless but identity isn’t

Raven Symone, star of The Cosby Show and That’s So Raven, made a politically correct statement by telling Oprah that she is tired of labels, doesn’t want to be labeled as gay or African-American and that an American is a colorless person.


“However, Raven is actually saying she hasn’t yet found her identity, isn’t interested in her heritage, and is selectively choosing labels which she believes will benefit her” says Australian Human Behavior Expert Patrick Wanis PhD.


“Nowhere in the world is citizenship determined by color, but our identity goes deeper than our citizenship or nationality. If we are to remove all labels, then we must remove all hyphenations such as Italian-American, Cuban-American, etc., and we can never truly know ourselves until we can identify our heritage or ancestry. Are Jewish Americans still allowed to identify with their heritage? Can people still label themselves as Holocaust survivors, Christians, or mothers, sons or daughters? Can women call themselves women (gender identification) or do they have to refer to themselves as females?”


“Few of us want to be labeled with something that excludes us, divides us, victimizes us or potentially results in discrimination, bigotry or less opportunities. However, that is not equivalent to denying one’s roots, heritage or ancestry. Unless one is afraid or potentially ashamed of their heritage, there is little reason to not seek out one’s families and the richness of their history.”


“Symone says ‘I don’t know where my roots go to…but I do know my roots are in Louisiana.’ Unless her family is Native American, her roots do go beyond Louisiana, the same way that Irish Americans in NY have roots that go beyond NY.”


“If Symone is saying she doesn’t identify with African-Americans, she will still eventually have to find with which group she does identify (a religion, an organization, a community and so forth) since we all need a sense of belonging.”


“Identity is also connected to values, morals, principles, beliefs, interests, goals, dreams, meaning, purpose, culture, skills, talents, abilities and personality. When Symone says she doesn’t want to be labeled, and therefore doesn’t identify with  anything, anyone or any group in particular, she is also saying she doesn’t stand for anything and thus, lacks purpose and meaning.”

“We also need to understand that African-American isn’t just a political term; its true definition is the ethnic group whose members are those Americans who descended from the Africans brought and enslaved in the US from 1619 – 1865.”


“Finally, we label others as well as ourselves as a way of understanding, identifying and distinguishing ourselves, and as a way of bonding with people who are similar to us. We can be different and still equal! We cannot fully appreciate what makes someone special if we refuse to acknowledge and appreciate what also makes them different, though of the same nationality.”

You’re wrong about the Ray Rice video

Thursday, September 11th, 2014


The media got it wrong about the Ray Rice video

The media got it wrong about the Ray Rice video

Commentators everywhere in the media have been hailing the video showing Ray Rice punching his wife as the video that changes everything, claiming this warrants extreme punishment of Ray Rice and the NFL.


But they got it wrong, and their response reflects immaturity, sensationalism and a complete lack of understanding and insights into domestic violence, abuse and compassion.


Suddenly commentators believe that this second video is so hideous that the NFL and Rice should be punished further, and so they keep screaming for more blood, and without ever offering a solution to the problem of domestic violence.


The real video of concern isn’t the second video of a punch; the real video of concern is the first video which shows how Rice responded to his wife after she was knocked out.


The way we have responded to the 2 videos reflects the way we react emotionally instead of seeking a solution along with our complete disregard and unawareness of compassion. Due to our socio-cultural programming and the constant cries of gender inequality, we connect and notice the act of violence by a man against a woman, and, we fail to notice the real crime: Ray Rice might not have been able to control his anger in the moment but he had the opportunity to express compassion and remorse, and he didn’t.

After Janay is knocked unconscious when her head hits the railing, she falls to the ground, and Ray Rice drags her out of the elevator. He doesn’t lift her up; he doesn’t carry her, he drags her. He doesn’t fall to the ground, to his knees and embrace her head in his hands and arms; he doesn’t reveal any guilt over his actions or concern for her wellbeing. He doesn’t cry out “Oh my God, what have I done.” He doesn’t call for help; he quietly and calmly shoos away the security. There is no sign of immediate remorse, guilt, shame or fear for her safety.


How is it that all the commentators, including the numerous women who have written op-ed articles about how bad Ray Rice is, couldn’t see where the real issue is?


The answer again is that the holier-than-thou commentators who keep harping about Janay Rice as a victim don’t truly view her as a victim; they didn’t really put themselves in Janay Rice’s place, they didn’t truly think about her pain or what she needed after being knocked unconscious.


What do the commentators and media want to teach the public? “A real man never hits a woman”?


You can never teach that lesson without teaching compassion and a real concern for humans – regardless of gender. Telling children not to harm living things is impotent unless you also teach them why we shouldn’t harm.


You can’t have real men or heroes unless you teach and instill in everyone love, compassion, and the sanctity and preciousness of life!

LeAnn Rhimes – Another wicked stepmother?

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014


Behavior Expert & Life Coach

July 22, 2014



Pitch – LeAnn Rhimes – another wicked stepmother?

Is LeAnn Rhime’s decision to do a reality TV show an example of a step-mother turning wicked by setting out to punish the ex-wife? It certainly looks that way, says one behavior expert.

“LeAnn Rhimes is blatantly using her new Vh1 TV show to manipulate, tease, mock, humiliate and disparage her husband’s ex wife Brandi Glanville” says Human Behavior Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD. “And this is a common occurrence by many stepmothers, who still remain jealous and threatened by the ex-wife. Despite the fact that Rhimes and her husband Eddie Cibrian both cheated on their spouses, Rhimes is intent on stepping on Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville as she references tabloid rumors in her show.”

“Glanville and Rimes have been in massive Twitter fights and now Rhimes wants to really hurt Glanville by rubbing it in her face that she and Cibrian are married and ‘happily ever after’” says Dr. Wanis. “But that behavior reeks of the opposite – Rhimes is jealous, insecure and threatened by Glanvile. This is particularly common when the step mother was the ‘other woman’ – the mistress. When a relationship begins with both people cheating on their spouses, their future together can only be doomed because their foundation consists of lies, deceit and betrayal, and thus, they will never be able to fully trust each other – they will always be wondering when the other partner is going to cheat.”

“LeAnn & Eddie” is a new TV reality show on Vh1 about the inside life of LeAnn Rhimes and husband Eddie Cibrian.

Wanis predicts they will suffer the fate of almost all of the couples that indulge in reality TV shows: “I call it the curse of the reality show – with few exceptions, every married couple who has their own reality show ends in divorce!”


Step mothers:

  • Often use the children against the ex-wife

  • Fail to understand the situation they married into is an ‘existing family’ and don’t understand that they’re not the center of it

  • Act as if the children belong to them and feel the need to ‘mother’ them

  • Don’t hold back their criticism of the children, which are really directed at the mother

  • Often cocky enough to believe then can do a better job than the biological mother

  • Use the children to spite the mother

  • Compete with the biological mother

  • Don’t realize THEY are the outsider

  • Mentality on Facebook seems to be same across the board – The stepmothers see themselves as victims of the biological mom. They think they married the prize and that the bio mom hasn’t ‘let go’ of the relationship with their husband

  • Often manipulate money and payment to the former spouse

  • Should understand ex-wives often know the ‘real truth’ about her former husbands

Hollywood is the molester of children

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014
Hollywood the molester of children

“Is there any childhood star that Hollywood doesn’t abuse and destroy?”

Hollywood is like the molester of children, according to a human behavior expert.


“Is there any childhood star that Hollywood doesn’t abuse and destroy?” asks Human Behavior Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD.


“Justin Bieber, Lindsay Lohan and Miley Cyrus are just recent examples of the way Hollywood grooms, corrupts, taints and destroys all of its childhood stars” says Dr. Wanis.


“Justin Bieber was arrested for drunk driving and resisting arrest just blocks from my home in Miami; Where is this child’s father? Turns out he is a bad role model. A mother cannot raise a son alone. Bieber’s mother gave birth to him as a teenager, suffered from substance abuse and raised him as a single mother; she says ‘pray for him.'”


“A mother cannot be expected to become the role model or mentor for a boy. A mother cannot leave a child alone in Hollywood because it is like leaving a child abandoned on the street as open prey.”


“What is the difference between Jerry Sandusky using and abusing boys for his own pleasure and Hollywood doing the same thing to its childhood stars? Ultimately, both victims are scarred for life and their lives are often completely destroyed – becoming addicted to drugs, alcohol, suffering from depression and mental disorders, and losing all purpose and meaning in life.”


Finally, Wanis says “Bieber is 19, with a bad role model – his father was present during all of the trouble in Miami – he was a part of it. Recall, Britney Spears’ life was turned around by her father! Bieber’s father is like Miley’s dad and obviously wants to be friends with Justin instead of being a dad to him.”



Talking points:

* What happened to Bieber’s Christian roots? The same thing that happened to Miley Cyrus.

* Bieber and Miley’s dads want to be best friends to their children instead of being a dad

* Some of Hollywood’s childhood victims:

Freddie Prinze – Committed suicide by shooting himself in the head at age 22

River phoenix – Died of a heroin and cocaine overdose at age 23

Brad Renfro – Found dead in his LA apartment at age 25

Andrew Koenig – committed suicide

Petraeus – Only selfish women cheat

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012
petraeus only selfish women cheat paula broadwell

Paula Broadwell accused of an affair with CIA Director David Petraeus

“Women that cheat with married men are selfish”, says Los Angeles based Human Behavior & Relationship Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD.


“Women are seduced by the aphrodisiac of power and powerful men” says Dr. Wanis. “Power can take many forms – money, wealth, influence, social status, fame and so forth. Women in relationships often cheat because they feel emotionally invisible in the relationship. However, women who choose to cheat with married men are extremely selfish. They care not about the consequences for the man and his world since the cheating woman is rarely held accountable or blamed for the affair – only the married, powerful and famous man is blamed. The cheating woman does not care whether or not the affair destroys a family, children or the man’s career. And in the case of CIA Director David Petraeus – decorated four-star Army general who once ran the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan- it seems his mistress Paula Broadwell did not care whether or not it negatively impacts the potential security of a nation” says Dr. Wanis.

CIA Director David Petraeus resigns after an affair with Paula Broadwell

“The cheating woman only cares about satisfying her own needs and desires – conquering the powerful man, taking him away from another woman, tasting the power & glamour, boosting her own ego by the attention she receives from the powerful man or using him as a means to further her career or spear her into the limelight. Hedge fund analyst Danielle Chiesi had an affair with Robert Moffat, Senior VP of IBM, and used him to gave her valuable information which destroyed his career at IBM and put him in prison for six months for insider trading.”

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes’ divorce – clashing values over children

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce clashing values over children

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes’ divorce – clashing values over children

“It’s one of the major causes of arguments in a marriage – how to raise the children. And now, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes might be the most famous example of how clashing values always result in divorce” according to Los Angeles based Human Behavior & Relationship Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD.


“Katie Holmes is Catholic and Tom Cruise is a major proponent for the Church of Scientology. And it’s been rumored that Katie is divorcing Tom to protect their daughter Suri from being sent off to an intensive Scientology camp” says Dr. Wanis. “Relationships change after children enter the picture with less time for sex and each other, but as new research reveals, the major arguments begin over how the children should be raised.”


“In fact, an interesting census of British parents was released today by parenting website revealing that the number one cause of arguments is not money but rather children – sixty-one percent of arguments are about parenting style.”


“Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ differences about the way their child should be raised is a very common problem amongst parents” says Wanis. “Parents often clash about the discipline, education, clothing, and religion of their children.”


“The new survey reveals that men are more likely than women to argue with their partners about parenting styles. Thus, it’s critical that parents share the same core values and be united about how the child will be raised. If not, the marriage suffers and then the children ultimately suffer when the family breaks up and the parents divorce” says Dr. Wanis.


“I believe a happy marriage must begin with the same core values and compatible personality types, communication styles, conflict-resolution styles and religious beliefs. When the spouses begin by putting their love and marriage first, and establishing the same vision for the children, then the marriage can evolve and grow as a happy, loving relationship offering the security of a great role model and foundation for the children. That’s what was missing in Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ marriage, and Suri, their daughter, will now suffer from a broken family” concludes Dr. Wanis.


Potential talking points


* Three key causes of arguments in marriages – children, money and sex

* Significance of core values in a marriage and relationships

*’s survey results – children change the marriage

* Celebrity parents face greater pressure because of public opinion and public image

* Parents need to focus on the health of their marriage first which then creates a healthy child

What if Zimmerman isn’t racist?

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

This is a press release; to Read the full article by Patrick Wanis PhD published on here:

Also read the article by Patrick Wanis PhD “Lessons from an alleged hate crime”:


What if Zimmerman isnt racist

What if Zimmerman isn’t racist?

What if the masses got it wrong and George Zimmerman who killed black teenager Trayvon Martin isn’t a racist?


One expert claims that Zimmerman’s real motivations may have been repressed anger, power, control, and a desire for significance, meaning and recognition; Zimmerman and his wife mentored two black children.


Los Angeles based Human Behavior Expert, Patrick Wanis PhD says “When Zimmerman chose to pursue Trayvon Martin against the directive of the 911 dispatcher, he became the aggressor and the hunter. And his real motivations may have been anger, ego and a desire for power. Zimmerman who was a victim of a criminal assault himself when he was 17, was charged at age 20 with resisting a police officer and he had to undergo an alcohol education program. His ex-fiancee was also granted a civil restraining order against him for alleged domestic violence. These are examples of anger-driven behavior.”


“When a person believes that he or she lacks significance, feeling powerless or invisible, he turns to extreme measures to be noticed, to feel powerful and meaningful and to standout”, says Dr. Wanis. “Zimmerman clearly sought power and justice beyond being a volunteer community watch commander; he wanted to become a law enforcement officer – he had taken a 14-week class at the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. But his choice to chase Martin reflects ego, anger and possibly the corruption of power and responsibility he had been given. Did Zimmerman believe he had total dominion over his gated neighborhood? Did he believe that he could enforce the law, judge people or pursue them based on his own judgment, thus ignoring his only role as neighborhood watch volunteer commander – to report suspicious behavior and not to take power into his own hands?”
