Christina Blasey Ford’s Polygraph Was B.S.
American Greatness, by Michael Thau

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/21/2018 6:17:30 AM

The fact that Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers refused to release the results of her polygraph exam until the day before her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last month caused some suspicion. And when we finally got a look at them, a lot of Judge Kavanaugh’s supporters were confirmed in their suspicions. It turned out that Ford’s examiner, former FBI agent Jeremiah Hanafin, only asked her two relevant questions. And that’s not how most folks imagine polygraph exams are supposed to go.

Comments:
But “most folks” (that’s us) are apparently wrong. This is a fascinating article on polygraph tests. Most of us have had entirely the wrong idea about what they do, and how they should be performed. Thau takes us into what was OK about Ford’s polygraph (only two questions rather than many) and what was not (the examiner’s having her write up a narrative before he administered the test).

It is also interesting to note that psychologists don’t think much of polygraph tests. That is explained as well. A very worthwhile read.

The nutty professor was going to, or coming from, her grandmother´s funeral. Many, if not most people, take a tranquilizer when dealing with the death of a family member.
The nutty professor, who had been in therapy for several years, probably was medicated, which invalidates the polygraph results.

After reading and witnessing what has transpired in the last fifty years, culminating in the aftermath of Trump’s election, including the Kavanaugh hearings, I and any other right-thinking person just cannot trust ANYTHING the Democrats puts out as facts! They are incapable of knowing and telling the truth. It would be national suicide to allow them back into power! The Democratic Party is, in my eyes, the party of evil!

In my Prison experience, we had a machine the Chief of Security called ´The Lie Test"- He had bought it at an estate auction- It looked very impressive. Black case, lights, buzzers, a vaccum tube on top. I think it was an old guitar amplifyeer. But, when he wanted to get the truth out an inmate during an interview, he would ask a pertinent question, listen to the inmate andser and ask- "Is that the truth?" Then he would turn the machine on, making dramatic adjustments, then he would turn to the inmate and show him some playing cards. He would show the cards one by one to the inmate- "Is this a red card?" The inmate would answer, truthfully and the machine would stay calm. Then he would ask the inmate to lie on the next card, "Is this card black?" and the inmate would say "No", when it was actually black, and the machine would light up, click and the needle would swing- "There, all is now ready- Now, let me ask my question again. And invariably, the inmate would answer truthfully. Never mind that the machine could be made to go nuts by the under-desk switch the COS would press with his knee. The old man used the Lawyer trick- "Never ask a question you do not already know the answer to." He would psyche his subject out to get the truth.

Lie detector machines are total flim-flam. They work the same as divining sticks and magic wands. It is the magician who has to carry the trick off with his gab and art of distraction.

I can buy a polygraph test to report anything I want it to.
A real polygraph test has many pre questions to determine a persons natural response. It can take several hours. The fact that this one was fixed shows an intend to deceive and bend the truth.
The elephant in the room is, even if he rolled around with her on a bed, had another guy jump on the bed and playfully wrestle with him as she slips away while they are laughing, it was a nothing burger. Nowhere did she even claim he used force by twisting an arm, hitting or otherwise.She never claimed he tore her clothes. He was a 17 year old juvenile. This woman was a far left wing nut case, planted by other left wing dims. She should go to jail for her crimes.

Anybody who knows anything would refuse a polygraph test and Ford should have been familiar with the technique due to her career choice. The FBI can no longer be trusted at any level so the results can be ignored.

Where is all the leftist outrage concerning the poor mentally ill woman who was groped in her younger years and is a total wreck of a human being because of it? Once Kavanaugh was confirmed, the left knew the jig was up and they abandoned her. Where is Feinstein and her outrage over justice not upheld? They all knew that it was a circus. Last week´s circus was the Saudi/WaPo reporter. This week´s circus is the invasion from Honduras. The dems never give up using madness to attempt to further their sick goals. November 6 will not be the end of it.

Well - - ummm - - I was scared. I didn´t know what a polygraph test was - - so I was frightened. There were all these wires - - and people staring at me. And I think there was a camera - - but I really don´t know what cameras look like. And I didn´t have any caffeine. And this man kept asking me questions. I didn´t know who he was - - so I was afraid I was going to be attacked again. And there was only one door - - so I was suffocating with fear of how to get out. And there was still no caffeine. And I don´t understand your complicated world - - because I´m just an unfrozen cavewoman psychologist.

Well, maybe you can´t trust lie detectors all the much, but what she really needed was a good phrenologist!

/s off

The entire deal was a corrupt Dem/Deep State op to try to keep Kavanaugh off the court.

No facts, no truths - anywhere in the entire crooked scam. Not any different than the movie "The Sting", except that these thugs were not ´lovable rogues´ by any stretch of the imagination. It was an evil, cold blooded, black hearted political operation, top to bottom. Each player a pure liar, playing a part of a scam.

As a research psychologist herself, Ford teaches and practices how to beat lie detector tests using self-hypnosis to create false memories. The CIA then uses her technique so that double agents can pass lie detector tests and continue passing secrets.

Asking her to take a lie detector test as "proof" of her allegations is just unbelievable. The left creates these explosive, front page news psychodramas to overwhelm any opposition with a flood of lies, and the MSM provide the propaganda blitz to blind their brainwashed sheep to the truth.

Debunking a Few Myths
About Mitch McConnell
American Greatness, by Rachel Bovard    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 11/18/2018 9:17:38     Post Reply
The Weekly Standard published a gusher last week on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). Fred Barnes, the magazine’s executive editor, fell all over himself praising McConnell’s “pragmatism and political skill . . . [which] allows little to get in the way of winning.”(Snip) In 2013, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) unleashed the so-called “nuclear option” on the Senate, eliminating the 60-vote threshold for confirmations of judicial and executive branch nominees. With the 60-vote hurdle out of the way, McConnell’s “success” in confirming judges has been less about his leadership skills, and more about simple scheduling, and prioritizing

They accused the migrants of being messy, ungrateful and a danger to Tijuana and complained about how the caravan forced its way into Mexico, calling it an ´invasion´. And they voiced worries that their taxes might be spent to care for the group as they wait possibly months to apply for US asylum.

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession.

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they were either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of was that the ballots were still in the building. “The ballots are in this building.
