Statement Analysis Practice Through Movie Dialogue

With formal training, the instruction of principle,  including the understanding and application, upon completion, is just the beginning. 

Complete Statement Analysis is an at-home course in which the new analyst learns the general principles of deception detection as well as the application. 

Successful completion of the course is where it all begins. 

It is here that the basic tools are now in the hands of the analyst who must now learn how to use them.  

With enrollment in our course, we provide 12 months of e-support, which provides feedback and guidance in the course of study. 

With enrollment, we also provide one free of charge access to live, on-line team training held at Go To Meeting.com. 

Here they meet other analysts, instructors, investigators, journalists, writers, and experts from a wide variety of fields and work together for a common goal.  

Team analysis now allows the analyst exposure to a wide swatch of human nature within the world of crime.  It is, as to say, monthly access to the incessantly unexpected.  I caution new analysts that this training is "addicting", which they soon learn why.  They are involved in a supported team environment of the most detailed dissection of statements, literally entering into the language of criminal suspects where intellects range greatly. 

Most will sign up for at least a year of training, and find that at the end of a year, detecting deception is no longer challenging.  They run at or near 100% accuracy.  

With this, they are ready to move into the area of profiling where the words of a subject reveal to them the subject's background, experiences in life, motive that drives him, and most interestingly, the subject's personality traits. 

Sometimes there work is compared to a known psychological evaluation diagnosis.  

With formal training, the overall obsession with language becomes routine, and at a certain point, is no longer "shut off."

Recently, I was asked to provide some suggested movies to watch.  

Movies?

Analysts find that, often in their second year, that they are incessantly analyzing conversations, including television.  

I urge them to expand their internal data base of language through reading and analyzing to not only further practice but to learn more about human nature.  

I recommend the writings of John Calvin on human nature, as well as Shakespeare.  The popular series, "No Fear Shakespeare" is a great way to expose oneself to his understanding of human nature as they are small paperbacks of some of the most brilliant writing the world has ever known.  On the left side is the original text and the right side (page) has modern English.  After a few chapters, the reader leaves off the need for translations.  

The Brothers Karamazov and the short stories are recommended.  Here your heart is ripped out by the writing of tragedy and then handed back to you.  

Interrogations:  The Nazi Elite in Allied Hands, 1945, by Richard Overy I double up on because here you can see the transcripts of answers of men of extreme intellect in justifying evil.  Even in second language, there is a great deal to mine. It is sobering.  

Natan Sharansky's "Fear No Evil" Gulag experience and coping is amazing.  This speaks to interrogation and interview resistance and the will of man.  

There are so many others (I will give another list soon) but the key is to seek out reading that will cause you to be exposed to human nature well evidenced linguistically. 

Now here is some fun to have while practicing the art of listening. 

Classic Movies

Modern movies rely upon gratuitous violence and nudity, which caused a precipitous drop in scripted dialogue.  To practice the art of listening, I challenge you to step back a few years and embrace movies where the scripts are written from books and the actors had to rely upon skills rather than special effects.  

Silent movies are fascinating because of the facial expression communication of which body language analysts enjoy, but here we are focusing on dialogue. 

Clever dialogue is stimulating to listen to, including turning away from the face and just listening and analyzing in practice.  These writers, even when scripting deception, use deception most often appropriately.  

Entertainment Value:   In these old classics, you're likely to find much emotion elation and joyful conclusions, and not as likely to watch an overweight woman fall down and pass gas, as you are today.  

Rapid Fire Dialogue 

This form of dialogue takes concentration (remember that?) to follow.  Here are just a few recommendations:   

1940's "Pride and Prejudice" is my favorite insult movie.  The lines move quickly and the insults delivered in rapid fire writing. Edna May Oliver is priceless. 

 Some others I recommend:

"The Philadelphia Story" explores human nature (greed, ambition, selfishness, redemption, etc)  as does the insulting 

" His Girl Friday" which, if you blink, you'll miss an insult.  

"The Thin Man" with William Powell and Myrna Loy...I love the entire series. 


My favorite period is the naughty "pre code" period, where one may "balance our account" to describe infidelity. (1930's "The Divorcee" and "Gold Diggers of 1933" represent the serious to the comedic.)  1931's "Dracula" is frightening and a few lines are spine chilling but it is mostly the face of Bela Lugosi making evil banal that is most effective. 

"Three on a Match" shows drug addiction and the hallowed vanity of chasing riches.  It is tough to watch. 

Helen Twelvetrees can reduce you to tears in "Millie" when she says with the world's saddest eyes, hangs up the phone and says  "that was my mother.  She says for you to be good to me" to her new husband on their wedding night , who, as you might guess, was not good to her. 

Twisted but sadly accurate, "Of Human Bondage" accurately portrays why men do such self destructive things over obsession with a woman.  

It was from the early 30's that Hollywood's addition of musical scores reached its peak in 1939, where even the "b" movies shine today.  

The all female cast of "The Women" starring Norma Shearer unashamedly explores how women think and feel.  

1942's "Casablanca" is not a feel good movie, but when the French citizens unite in song against the Nazi occupiers, its hard to not feel inspiration.  

"Topper" is fun while one of my favorite Joan Blondell movies is where she deals with the topic of a conscience that begins to bother her, more and more, under the tutelage of a professor, in:

"Good Girls Go to Paris"  She was comedic genius.  


Human nature does not change, and the relations between men and women in these movies leads modern critics who write reviews to issue caveats and politically correct apologies.  

"Gone With the Wind" 

"My Man Godfrey" 

"Stagecoach" shows the brutality and tenderness of human nature. 

"Grand Hotel" 

"Little Lord Fauntleroy" and "Captains Courageous"

"Jezebel" will show what selfishness looks like in a shocking way, as a moment of emotional satisfaction is exchanged for a life.  

"Imitation of Life" 

"Manhatten Melodrama" addresses dignity, principle and friendship. 

"The Charge of the Light Brigade" deals with vengeance and rage. 

Although later, "The Searchers" shows the irrational side of hatred. 

"Wuthering Heights" gives insight into humiliation's impact upon human nature. 

1938's "Holiday" had the depression era's view that those with wealth just had to be wrong...my parents talked about waiting on line to see a movie that was sought as a form of relief during the Great Depression.  


To see Greta Garbo laugh, after all those silent movies, is worth the price of rental, but when you hear her ask, "Must you flirt?", you'll be glad you landed:  "Ninotchka."  

"Goodbye Mr. Chips", "The White Cliffs of Dover" and Greer Garson in "Mrs. Miniver" are touching with strong dialogue.  


Unashamed love stories, war accounts, and deeply moving films including Mae Clark's performance with "Waterloo Bridge" which deals with  prostitution is tragic and heartbreaking.  

"The Divorce of Lady X" is silly  fun, and you'll have to turn up the volume a tad to hear Lawrence Oliver's banter with Merle Oberon, while ignoring her eternally adorable face expressions copied from UK's Jesse Matthews ("There Goes the Bride", another  must see). 

"The Awful Truth" tells the truth about male insecurity and jealousies.  

"Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington" is an initial glimpse into corruption.  

"Dinner at Eight" 

"The Bishop's Wife" is warm hearted, though the early movies of Loretta Young are special.  

Many of the movies from the 30's from the UK are dialog first movies and enjoyable while being useful for our purposes of practicing following dialog.  I'm convinced that after a polite greeting from a Brit in 1935, that I have just been complimented while I know I've been horribly insulted. 

There is far too many to list but the key is learning to listen even while enjoying movies and the writing must be intelligent, clever, and with an understanding of human nature.  Although I love movies that elicit tears and will watch anything with Shirley Temple, Fred Astaire (Ginger Rogers is just fine without him), Myrna Loy, Edna May Oliver, and so many from the "Golden Era" of Hollywood, seek out clever dialogue.  

It's useful and it's enjoyable.  

If you have some classic movies you love and can recommend those with snappy dialogue, please add to the comments section.  

I've left off my love of musicals as they are not dialogue first, but it is hard not to smile and follow Maurice Chevalier "Love Me Tonight", (if you like Disney's Beauty and the Beast", you'll recognize where the opening scene came from) and "The Merry Widow" --he's very funny. "Top Hat", "Shall We Dance" "42nd Street" 

"Naughty Marietta" with Jeannette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy is good enough to get the Mp3s.  


and one of my favorites movies that did not even make the "B" list, but remains fun to laugh at:    Alice White:  Naughty Flirt can be found on You Tube.  She was an inspiration for Mel Blanc in his "Bugs Bunny" tails, as you might guess from the picture. 


Make your recommendations in the comments section...and enjoy! 








Dept. Of Homeland Security John Kelly


Today, politicians use deceit in ways generally restricted to periods of time just prior to, or during war, or periods of historical abundance of wealth and corruption.  

The numbers the politicians have released have consistently been minimal compared to numbers police departments have deliberately leaked out. 

The politicians minimize to cover their importation of Islam into their nations.  

They race to see who is the most morally virtuous as they yield to an ideology that, whether practiced or not, seeks their own subordination.  Statement Analysis gets to the truth, and seeks to know what is behind criminal behavior, whether it be from the elite or from the violent perpetrator himself.  It begins with questions and questions guide it through its completion.  


                       Investigation of Crime 


Why?

This is the first most important question we ask in an investigation.  
If we can understand why, we can move into content.  The first sentence of a statement in an investigation is always important; and it is sometimes even the motive for the statement, itself.  

Why?

Why did the Islamic terrorist target young girls in Manchester this week?

You can get your answers from politicians and the media that does their bidding, or you can look into the ideology that yields the violence, itself.  In the end, you may see why John Kelly said what he did.  

Religion and Statement Analysis 

We view all religion as ideology.  We ask what its basic teachings are, who obeys them, who disobeys, who alters, who upholds, and so on.  Religion is an ideology just as other forms of societal ordering is, including democracy, socialism, communism, and so on.  Within the west, "leftism", itself, if an ideology where under the guise of morality, reason may be suspended to bring adherence or obedience. The benefit is only to the politician, or elected official, and any business that supports him.   It, too, has its devout followers, which is similar religious overtones and like all ideologies has consequences upon society.  One consequence of it is the combination of moral superiority with the suspension of reason:   a powerful combination for violence.  Historically, this violence generally came from the young males who were impoverished or struggling to support a family. They often fell prey to leaders who offered economic utopia, such as communism or socialism. In post Treaty of Versailles Germany, this socialism was distinct and national. 

 The violence we see today is often  from male and female and predominantly from the middle to upper middle class young who are, according to a recent study, mostly technically unemployed (though some are paid for the violent protests).  As an ideology, anarchism, supported by elitist in government, seeks to eradicate government.  The irony here is strikingly similar to what now follows.  

Islam is a criminal supremacist ideology with  religious overtones and distinct sexual violence as an element.  The ideology, itself, seeks to assert its dominance wherever it goes.  Its first victims are those born into it, without choice of leaving.  
Adherence (obedience) to this ideology is what brings violence to fruition. Politicians, with main stream media,  now call devout Islam "radical Islam." 
Our entire western travel culture has been forever altered due to the power of this ideology that operates without a single leader giving orders.  When one group is defeated, another takes it place.  The names and faces and even years change, but the ideology, itself, remains unreformed. 
The founder, Mohammad, used religious instruction to justify envy, through conquest, subordination, theft and sexual violence. This is found in the Koran as well as the Hadith.  Followers are not permitted to criticize ("blasphemy laws") nor to leave Islam.  
In other religions, the perpetrator of violence must defy (disobedience) its teachings to commit said violence.  This is the only  ideology that incorporates distinct religious beliefs with specifically described acts of coercive and prescriptive violence.  It's position as a "religion" is not only used to control  its subjects, but is used to  exploit democratic views on religious tolerance; notions that were not in context during the formation of its principles.  Whereas "freedom of religion" in the early founding of our nation was designed to protect various denominations, there is no context of Islam or other totalitarian belief systems within it.  
Recognizing it as a danger, past presidents have used various means of excluding followers of Islam from immigrating to the United States, such as questions about polygamy, rather than confront it as a "religion."  In countering it, prior administrations studied it, particularly when it came to war, including the Tripolitan War.  
Today, the anarchist ideology  of no borders and "multiculturalism" has removed the historical necessities of invasion by Islam in conquests, as nations have freely offered  money and entry to Islamists to enter their countries at will unvetted.  As Islam teaches that the non Islamist, the "infidel", is only to be allowed to live if he pays a "tax" (jizrah) or ransom for his life, to the superior Islamist, the social welfare systems has affirmed to the mostly young male arrivers their superiority.  It is a cultural shock to walk into an "infidel" nation and not be vetted, but be given food, living quarters and actual money for simply showing up.  No repayment nor work is required.  

Claiming civil war, they readily embraced the status of "refugee" fleeing war, even as 70% to 90% were males of fighting age.  The numbers have been a source of deception from the beginning, just as their sex and ages have been. 
The results have been the habitual pattern of history. Those coming from a violent culture to a peaceful culture set up the same cultural distinctive elements that brings violence, resisting integration.  The result is the violent culture within the peaceful culture and the requisite death and injury seen.  

 Because of this, politicians have sought to justify their claimed morally superior position of "no walls" by claiming that it is poverty, frustration, warming temperatures, and injustices from centuries ago, that leads to the violence and bloodshed of terrorism and that Islamic terrorism is not Islamic, even though the perpetrators make full confession of their crimes. 

The politicians know the motive of the crime more than the perpetrator.  

Deception Indicated.  
  
The irony comes from those whose claims are made while living safely behind behind walls and are protected by arms.  

Confession 

The perpetrators quote the Koran and Hadith freely offering their motive, or the reason "why" they spilled blood, faithfully warning that more bloodshed will occur.  History bears this out.  

Sharia Law and Submission 
"Creeping Sharia" is a phrase used to describe the slow acceptance of this totalitarian ideology by small increments.  It is often where minor complaints are made, along with threats of violence, and actual bloodshed, which cause the initial minor acceptance of Islam.  As a supremacist ideology, logically, satisfaction can never exist.  Therefore, "Muslim grievances" are incessant.  They begin small and they demand that, as minorities, they be given special rights; the very same rights they deny to minorities in Islamic controlled lands. This includes holidays, food accommodations and enforced segregation.  This, along with the free money given to Islamists further affirms to them that which they have been taught since early childhood:  their own supremacy. 

Women

Islam teaches that women's testimony is less than that of a man, the women is the property of the man, and that, for example, it demands women not be along unaccompanied in public. 

European elite  have rejected this notion, yet in many locales women have stopped going out at night; a de facto adherence to Sharia.  
When countries enact Sharia Blasphemy laws, under the various wording such as "hate crimes" and "hate speech", the implementation of the blasphemy law is in effect.  Some Europeans have been arrested for criticizing Islam under the false claim of "inciting racial violence", though no race is ever claimed.  Generally, it is a criticizing of mass migration policies that leads to legal difficulty for the citizen.  
Islam exists without a single strong charismatic leader.  National socialism needed Adolph Hitler and lasted less than two decades.  Islam, without a leader, has lasted 1,400 years.  
September 11, 2001 
In more than 30,000 terrorist attacks in the world since 9/11, the common denominator is not race, age,  socio-economic status, nor climate.  

Who?

Who is committing these acts of violence, routinely making "ramadan" the most dangerous month of the year for non Islamists around the world? 

What is the common denominator of these acts of seemingly senseless violence, against unarmed citizens, in all parts of the world? 

The common denominator is this:  
The killers accurately quote the Koran and Hadith as their motive.  

The motive is the same in all the attacks...more than 30,000 recorded attacks since 9/11's powerful destruction of life and property in the United States, including one of the West's monuments of culture:  the Twin Towers in New York City.  

This, too, is specifically addressed in the Koran which tells us that when the Islamist sees a non Muslim land, they are to note the "ruins" which speaks to the "favor of Allah" in destroying them.  

This irony leads to destruction to "correct" the inaccuracy of the Koran.  

Hence, the Eiffel Tower is a longed for symbol of the false report in the Koran, and must be destroyed.  

This is why ancient valuable artifacts are routinely blown up by ISIS.  

Islam and Sex 

What led to the massive sexual assault New Year's Eve that was not just Cologne, but throughout Europe?

Why are there all these "honor killings" of females?

Why do females cover up?  

These are all appropriate investigative questions that warrant answers.  

Mohammad had a 6 year old bride and consummated at age 9  and his name is the most popular Islamic name because he is considered "the perfect man" to imitate.  This is why Europe has seen the sexual assault, rape and grooming gangs against children that it has seen.  If the "perfect man"...

In Afghanstan, American soldiers were ordered to "stand down" at the rapes of little boys.  Today, some report nightmares that continue from this experience.  It is unknown the lifelong impact that these child rapes had upon its victims, but from what we know in the west, it is life destroying. 

With the value of women's legal testimony lessoned by Islam, outworking such as "genital mutilation" and overall sexual harassment is, for the Islamist, permitted in the Koran.  Like theft and supremacy, it appeals to the baseness within human nature.  
How effective is "Creeping Sharia"?  We need to look no further than the use of the term, "Islamophobia" as well as the "dhimmitude" status of politicians who, before the dead are buried, profess allegiance to fighting "Islamophobia", or the irrational fear of Islam. 
Sir Winston Churchill called Islam the "rabies of the mind" and saw its impact upon those in submission to it.  A rabid dog was wild, vicious unpredictable, scary and to be shot to preserve life.  With rabies vaccinations, this imagery is lost upon the modern mind.  
It is rational to fear that which calls for our subordination and death.  
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Friday said the terror threat is worse than most realize, saying some people would "never leave the house" if they knew the truth.
“I was telling  Steve  on the way in here, if he knew what I knew about terrorism, he’d never leave the house in the morning,” with "Steve" being a journalist. 
He noted there were four major terror attacks in the last week — in England, Egypt, the Philippines and Indonesia — "by generally the same groups."
It’s everywhere. It’s constant. It’s nonstop. The good news for us in America is we have amazing people protecting us every day. But it can happen almost here anytime.

The FBI do not receive credit for the thousands of attacks that have been foiled, nor will this be known.  
Masked gunmen opened fire on a group of Coptic Christians driving to a monastery in southern Egypt on Friday, killing 26 and injuring 25 more.  The slaughter in Egypt is genocide.  
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for a Monday bombing after and Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, that killed 22 children and injured more than 100.
This is the result of open borders where no discernment on who is permitted to enter has been exploited.  

Dr. Hammond's study should be read:  here  It is sobering but keep in mind:  the numbers are no longer valid, especially since 2009 to present.  
Many Europeans enjoy the free movement and economic benefits of this free movement between countries, and have seen the good will it has promoted, but it has also been exploited to the point where, in Germany, citizens risk arrest to even criticize Islam.  Canada is not far behind.  
To criticize an ideology, they are told by politicians, is "racism", though no one race is identified. 
This is why former president Barak Obama sought to create a new classification of "race" known as MENA, or "Middle East North Africa."
It was to further enforce Sharia blasphemy laws by coercion. 
The violence against women is prescriptive within Islam.  
When a young boy grows up seeing his mother "disciplined" by violence, and he is taught to idolize a murderous pedophile, the resulting barbaric practices are expected.  
While the elite claims that "barbarians" no longer exist, or that they only need a job, they do not take into account the powerful de-sensitizing process of being raised in a system that appeals to our lowest primal instincts within human nature. 
Manchester targeted young girls. 
Young girls are being mutilated genitally in order to not enjoy sexual relations.  
The Orlando shooter targeted homosexuals.  
Both terrorists acted accurately upon the teachings of the ideology.  This in spite of U.S. government and the Obama administration's attempt to deceive the nation by giving out deliberately false information about the Orlando massacre.  They had his 911 call in which he accurately described and followed through with the belief system.  Main stream media gave us a false narrative (homosexuality, or the fear thereof) and even a false witness (false boyfriend), of which was debunked, eventually, by the FBI.  
The ideology of National Socialism (nazi) is commonly used today to condemn socialism that is "national" (though not international socialism) is both ideologically and historically pale compared to 14 centuries of a self-containing criminal ideology that has, in the past 50 years, mounted a major comeback in the West. 
Law enforcement agencies have been pressured into removing instruction manuals on Islam as an ideology, by the terrorist-designate, "CAIR" as well as the associates of the Muslim Brotherhood. 
The FBI has reported that local mosques have not been universally helpful or forthcoming regarding those with deadly intentions. 
This may be due to many factors, but fear, itself, must be examined, as they are not permitted, by this ideology, to publicly criticize the Koran. 
This is why the West's pleading with Islamic leaders to begin a "reformation" falls upon death ears. 
94% of Muslims in Germany are against integration.  This may be, in some cases,  because it would go directly against Islamic teaching and put them in harm's way.  
Close sanguineous relationships within Islam have produced an abundance of children with developmental disabilities and has overwhelmed western social services.  
Consider the lethal combination of lower IQ, poor impulse control, supremacist ideology, and eye witness of domestic violence coming together and meeting testosterone.  
Then import this to the West where women are not covered.  
Then consider the Islamic teaching about covering:  it is to mark those who are not to "be molested."  
It puts a "bullseye" on women who, in the teaching and culture of many of these males, for sexual assault. 
No matter how politicians change the language, the ideology remains the same. 
The message from Department of Homeland Security John Kelly is that no matter how bad we think it is, it is worse. 
We may be grateful that we were not born into such an ideology and have empathy for those who were, but this is not a substitute for self protection.  
As it becomes acceptable  for European children to grow up with armed military in the streets, the demographics are clear as to the powerful shift and even population replacement that is taking place. 
Inevitably the lesson from history is clear:  there will come a time when those who desire freedom will have to choose to either fight or submit.  

It must be understood:  these acts of violence are neither random nor are they illogical to the perpetrators.  

They are willful acts of destruction of human life in specifically premeditated and orchestrated manner designed to show public obedience and submission to the ideology.  

The perpetrator, himself, is promised "reward" in the afterlife. 

There, the ideology says, he is permitted to rape virgins.  

If this is what he is taught about the afterlife, it is consistent that he should seek the same in the present.  

To the western mind, this is illogical, immoral and unfathomable.  

But to the western mind, strength is seen in self control, whereas within Islam, self control is seen as weakness. 

We need to know that which seeks our harm, and the harm of all those within its path.  Islam is a supremacist and dangerous violent ideology.  Most Muslims are not, but neither can they safely leave or even criticize this ideology.  

When a society tilts as the Islamic population grows, Muslims know more than non Muslims, the danger of resistance and sided with the Islamists, for example, in Egypt as it grew in Islamist population. 

The study of history shows the slow take over of this ideology and the submission of those who believe in "coexistence", which are "useful idiots" to the Islamists.  Even those, historically, who made deals with the Islamists, remained "infidels" and eventually paid for their capitulation through their children and grandchildren.  

Islam is known for 14 centuries of violence, not for culture, hospitals, theaters, orchestras, or advancements in science and medicine. 

Mosques that do not agree with the terror cannot speak out.  Some will say that the violence against non Muslims is "only" justified in lands that are under legal Sharia.  This is the closest I have ever heard in a public statement.  

When violence increases from monthly to weekly, and the death toll increases, expect popular reaction to become even further distanced from the elite, who remain concerned only about protecting their own status.  

Those who resist Islam are labeled by the elite "right wing Nazi" and various programs are set up to chase phantom "right wing Islamophobic violence" as deceptive tangents. They designate money for training against "right wing", while removing manuals regarding Islam, including the Koran.  

This, too, is likely to come to a change as Europe and America see how the policies of the elite that imported violence, unnecessarily, to their homelands.  

The Islamic Republic of Iran was paid ransom by the United States under Barak Obama, and given the freedom to build nuclear weapons, without regard to its publicly stated motive:

to destroy Israel as a nation, and to destroy the "infidels" and "Great Satan" (the United States) and western civilization.  

The western powers freely gave the means to those with the powerful religiously fueled motive.  

John Kelly told the truth.  

Muslims can decide to live under democracy and freedom. They can, if united with local citizenry, do what many have as individuals and embrace western freedom.  They, too, live in fear of Islam and they have the additional element of childhood tradition and cultural impact to counter.  The non-religious Muslim is a victim of Islam. They who abhor the ideology must be heard.  

As long as there are politicians in power willing to sacrifice lives for their own gains, there will be lies and death will result.  

As long as foreign governments continue to build mosques and pay the salaries of the iman, bloodshed will continue and escalate.

Analysis: Anthony Weiner's Court Statement


Regarding "full responsibility" in analysis, please see here how Statement Analysis classifies this well used phrase.  

Anthony Weiner has been previously analyzed to be seen deceptive.  Here, it is a "mea culpa" before the court and a prepared statement. Does he take "full responsibility" for sending sexually explicit text messages to an underaged female?

Recently, a secret service agent was sentenced to 20 years in prison after entering a guilty plea for sending messages to an underaged girl in the attempt to meet her for an illicit sexual encounter.  

Weiner has pled guilty.  It will be interesting to compare sentences and to see how he describes, in his verbalized perception of reality, his victim.  

Note his linguistic disposition towards his vicim;
Note any unnecessary information as very important.  

In a prepared statement we do not analyze Anthony Weiner; we analyze the statement, addressing "the subject" (author).  



“Beginning with my service in Congress 

Where a statement begins is always important as it can be priority and dominate the thought of the subject. 

Where does the subject begin?

*With his service in Congress. 

He does not begin with the pronoun "I"
He begins with "my service in Congress", which is used instead of a date.  He reminds the court of his "service" and the importance of such, with "Congress."

This is an unnecessary diversion from responsibility as it portrays him as one in service of others.  One may question if the subject, while in Congress, was in "service" to others, but for him, it is where he began his statement:  his priority.  



and continuing into the first half of last year, I have compulsively sought attention from women who contacted me on social media, 


It is unnecessary for him to tell the court who contacted whom; the others are not on trial.  Yet for him, the unnecessary information is a form of distancing himself from responsibility.  

He sought "attention"; not sex, in his language.  


and I engaged with many of them in both sexual and non-sexual conversation. 

Here the subject continues to build with innocent "extras" that are unnecessary.  He wants the court to know he "served" in congress and victims contacted him and now many of these contacts were non-sexual.  

Was it his actions something that brought destruction?

These destructive impulses brought great devastation to family and friends, and destroyed my life’s dream of public service. 


It was the "impulses" that did it; not him, nor even his yielding.  It was "these destructive impulses."  

He is now distancing himself even further from both responsibility and from his actions.  


And yet I remained in denial even as the world around me fell apart.

The world is "around" him.  This is a narcissistic phrase that is to say that things revolve around him.  It is consistent with his external "lotus of control" philosophy that like the racist Yale professor, they are victims of external forces conspiring against them, rather than personally responsible for their own behaviors.  
In late January 2016, I was contacted by and began exchanging online messages with a stranger who said that she was a high school student and who I understood to be 15 years old. 

It is very important to the subject to repeat that he did not contact the victim. He "was contacted" uses passivity, even further distancing himself from the victim and his actions. 

 This is a form of distancing language by shifting the burden of responsibility  to the teenager.  

If she had not contacted him, he would be okay.

If she had not lied about her age, he would be okay.  



Through approximately March 2016, I engaged in obscene communications with this teenager, 

The use of "with" between himself and this teenager is appropriately forming of distance. He does not see himself as unified with her.  In context of everything else he said, he may feel betrayed by her.  



including sharing explicit images and encouraging her to engage in sexually explicit conduct, just as I had done and continued to do with adult women. I knew this was as morally wrong as it was unlawful.

Here, the unnecessary "just as I had done and continued to do with adult women" 
This fall, I came to grips for the first time with the depths of my sickness

note:  not my "behavior", but my "sickness" is a form of distancing from responsibility.  

I had hit bottom. I entered intensive treatment, found the courage to take a moral inventory of my defects, and began a program of recovery and mental health treatment that I continue to follow every day.

He separates himself ("I") from defects.  His inventory, however, was moral, but his defects were not moral defects.  This is fascinating insight into the subject's thinking.  He is "courageous" and posses the high standard of "morals" needed to "inventory" or count, his moral defects.  He is so praiseworthy that he wants the court to know that he continues this "every day."  
I accept full responsibility for my conduct. I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse. I apologize to everyone I have hurt. I apologize to the teenage girl, whom I mistreated so badly. I am committed to making amends to all those I have harmed. Thank you.”

Analysis Conclusion:

The subject's verbalized perception of reality is that he is going to prison for an illness. 


He does not take any responsibility for his actions, but blames his victims, circumstances and an unknown illness for sexual inappropriate behavior with a teenager.  

Since he is not responsible, he cannot change his behavior, as he is a "victim" of others' behavior.  

The language here is consistent with other statements Wiener has made.  




Adam Jones Analyzed: Racial Slur

Adam Jones reported that he was a victim of racism in Boston where fans threw peanuts at him and called him "the N word." It made headlines throughout the media.  

Curt Shilling raised doubts saying that if this was heard, Twitter would have been all over it as everyone has cell phones.  Shilling also reported that Jones has an agenda. 

Statement Analysis gets to the truth. 

Does Adam Jones say "the fan called me the N word"?

Or, is he deceptive?  



Schilling is over there with his rants. He just wants an outlet. Somebody will take his call, take his rants. He can keep them for himself. Because he’s never experienced anything like I have. I’ll stick with what [Mark] McLemore said about it: Schilling, hell of a career. But he’s never been black, and he’s never played the outfield in Boston.”

Jones said defending himself.  We expect him to say, "he called me the N word" or "they yelled the N word at me."  

This would include identifying the fan or fans, the past tense verb, and the topic ("N word") identified. 

Truthful people speaking from experiential memory are psychologically connected to the event.  

The event is imprinting upon the brain and when there is an escalation, such as Jones' claim, there is an elevation of hormone that further increases memory recall. 

Here he tells us what happened.  Note the underlining and color coding to call attention to sensitivity indicators within his answer.  

As a general principle, truthful people state from experiential memory and do not feel a need to add many words to the statement. 

"The guy called me the N word" is such an example. 

Psychological Weakness in Deception 

Those who are not speaking from experiential memory (of the specifically claimed event) feel a need or burden to convince the audience.  This "need to persuade" seeks out assistance via a multitude of words. 

We also find that a deceptive person may anticipate being asked a question that is very uncomfortable, leading them to explain "why" in an answer before being asked. 

This is a study unto itself and is fascinating.  One of the greatest benefits within detecting deception in noting this "reason why" is this:

The person answers a question without being asked and quite often, the question would not have entered the mind of the audience/interviewer.  

This is to give away information (sensitivity=importance) that we may not have even sought.  It is a consistent way to not only catch liars, but to obtain more information.  The "reason why" is highlighted in the color blue to assist catching the eye's attention to the word.  We note that the statement does not begin with the pronoun "I" and a past tense verb.  Statistically, we begin with "less reliable" status.  

Next, we note that he now defends what happened by telling us "why" we should believe him:  he has great hearing. 

"To hear and and understand what I hear, what  I heard, I got great hearing.  And um, you know, we understand that we're the road team. 

Note the use of the pronoun "we" indicates contextual weakness:  liars do not like to be "alone" in a deceptive statement.  Like school children saying, "everyone was doing it", the deceptive person will not take personal responsibility as an attribute for himself in this statement.  


And uh, fans, they don't need to uh, welcome us.  It's all part of the competitive edge for the fan base to, you know, tell the opponents, you know, you suck, ha ha, you struck out and various things on your performance which is completely understandable in the lines of, uh, just how sports work and how fan bases work. 

This is a lecture or "sermonizing" (ethics) that is unnecessary. It is often used to establish a "moral high ground" by a deceptive person.  The need for moral high ground often shows the opposite. 



 Uh, um, so, I heard that all night 

Note he reliably reports hearing all night "you suck" "you struck out", and tells us, his hearing is good as is his attention span. 


and then, then just something that caught my attention.  

His ability to hear "all night" is now escalated.  His "attention" was sufficient to hear specifics about "suck" and "striking out" all night, but he now feels the need to qualify what happened next. 


I heard the N word 

This is better; he uses the pronoun "I", the past tense "heard" and the topic, N word.  What is missing is the fan or fans who made this claim.  

Yet, he is not done yet, and this is where we obtain information to judge the quality of the partial sentence: 

and you know, I, I, I get so 

He stutters, as a non-stutterer, on the pronoun "I", which indicates an increase in anxiety.  He is intelligent and articulate and has used the pronoun "I" millions of times in his life.  

Question:  Does he stutter on the pronoun "I" anywhere else in the statement?

He now address an increase in attention:  

certain reactions when someone says something clever or something really really stupid and ignorant 

note "stupid" before "ignorant"
note "stupid" is qualified as "really, really" 


and last night it was not clever 

note the rule of the negative 

it was really stupid and ignorant so it caught my attention 

note "really" for the third time;

Note the need for him to now explain the incongruence of his previous words about his attention, though no one has asked,

"Why did this particular ____ (fan, word?) catch your attention?"

This means that the subject (Jones) anticipates being asked the question, though, after his explanations of how attentive he is, including his great hearing, it is not likely that anyone would think to ask this question.  

"you know" is a habit of speech.  We note what causes its intrusion and what topics do not.  It is to show an acute awareness of his audience/interviewer.  

he now moves into a general use of the 2nd person, running away from personal commitment to a topic that he just claimed elevated his personal attention:  

and you know, and by the time you look back you can't tell who says what and who's doing what so I was just like this is okay this is really, um, this is really you don't go down here, so okay."

Reporter:  Do you think it was more than one person?

Jones;  I don't know.  It's hard, its hard to say exactly who is what and who's voices is from where, you know I'm focused, I'm focused on the game. Dellenbodi (?) was pitching a hell of a game, so I'm focused on that. 

He does not know anything specific and feels the need to tell us why he does not know:  his attention span.  

After telling us about his attention span and hearing, we would not have sought such justification.  

Reporter:  As a person or persons were watching right now, what would you say to him?

We now get further insight into not only his character, but motive:  

Jones:  Square up.  Let's fight and get it over with. 

This is narrative agenda.  

Analysis Conclusion:  Deception Indicated 

Fake Hate. 

Adam Jones is deceptive. 

If you look at his original statement, you will find the same pattern of "running away" from commitment.
