Deception Detection Training: The Art of Conclusion

In training towards expertise in detecting deception, the analyst/investigator goes through various phases of both learning and professional growth. 

It often begins in zealous thirst for knowledge and the foundation establishment begins in earnest by trusting in the principles to guide you. 

The trust in the subject is something that is taught early, often and is reinforced throughout the career of the analyst.  It is, even in advanced work, something that surprises experienced analysts.  It is very difficult to lie in an open statement and maintain the lie.  The trained professional learns to glean a great deal of information from a lying subject.  

Another stage in development is the complexity of lies.  In a recent assault case, the subject was deceptive, but only in what information  was left out.  The need to portray it as a "left wing attack" was contrived, even with elements within it.   Deception is, for the most part,  complex.  

The analyst moves into a stage where the learning curve begins to yield to this pressure and perseverance and encouragement is needed. 


We ask questions; lost of them.  

We ask questions about words. 

Why this word?
Why this word here?
Why this word now?
Why not another word, instead?

I recently reviewed an expert's work where he highlighted the article, "the" in an open statement and brought it to a startling conclusion which matched all else known about the case.  He did it by focusing on the word "the", its over use, and what words the subject could have used instead.  It was brilliant.  

Next Step

In team analysis, the one with the solid foundation now moves to a critical stage:  application. 

Here is where deception detection, or "Statement Analysis" moves to the introduction of "art form" and relies upon not only the skill of the analyst and the quality of questions asked, but specifically, 

the experience of the analyst. 

Here is where the iron sharpens iron and new analysts rub shoulders with some of our nation's top analysts, and is also exposed to international influence:  analysts from around the world bring entirely new and shifting perspectives even while embracing the same principles. 

                                  "Tell Me About Yourself..."

This is a valuable tool in many fields but is especially useful in employment as well as investigations (including criminal, child abuse, journalism, etc) as it allows the subject to tell us what is most important. 

Remember, no one can tell us everything. 

They must choose:

What information to share and what not to share. 
What order to put the information. 
What words to choose.
What words to avoid.
Where to place each word. 

This is done for the purpose of communication.  Even with regional dialect and expression, the person is speaking with the presupposition of being understood.  Hence, analysis can and should be done. 

Here in the United States, non government companies are  limited as to what questions they may ask an applicant.  Companies fear being accused of discrimination which can have consequences beyond a suit.  Companies want to hire the best and brightest so that productivity and profits are either maintained or increased.  They do not want someone who is going to steal from them, including "gaming the system" with false allegations, nor to destroy their reputation.  They want excellence.  

In 2001, the U.S. Dept. of Justice stated that approximately 40% of those who stole from their company intended to steal during the hiring process.  That is, they planned it before they were even hired.  This is to deceptively withhold information (motive) in the employment process.  Withholding information is the most popular form of deception, outside of court where "I don't recall" is number one.  

This statistic, though it seems extreme, does not include the above reference to gaming the system through fraudulent claims.  Anecdotally, this is both popular and successful.  

The skill of lie detection can save companies and law enforcement from acute consequence of hiring the wrong person.  

"I am a hard worker.  I have a good heart.  I have a strong mind and strong body.  I cook at a homeless shelter.  I like to work with people.  I am a someone you can trust.  I have a good mind.  I..."

Here we have only the beginning of an applicant's description of self.  

We ask questions in our analysis. 

"I am a hard worker."

This is where the subject began his statement.  It begins with the pronoun "I" which suggests to us that if we are paying attention, we are very likely to gain reliable information.  This should make sense intuitively, as the applicant is "present" in the statement, psychologically, with the pronoun "I."

It is likely that the sentence, "I am a hard worker" is reliable.  This means that subject believes his own words.  His subjective understanding of "hard work" may or may not match ours, but he is not trying to deceive us.  


What is hard work to you?
Have you ever worked with those who did not work hard?
What was that like for you? (critical question) 
Have you worked with some who out-worked you?
What was the hardest work you've done?
What was the easiest?  

We ask questions about others as this encourages the subject to feel   free with his answers.  We often find information about a subject as the subject tells us about someone else.  This is a critical strategy used intuitively by parents, and by training in investigations.  Where one is concealing information about self, the information weighs heavily on the mind and may "leaks out" when the subject is talking about someone else.  

"I am a hard worker.  I have a good heart.  I have a strong mind and strong body.  I cook at a homeless shelter.  I like to work with people.  I am a someone you can trust.  I have a good mind.  I..."

In the above statement, I reported that the applicant likely has a criminal history and if so, the volunteer work may be court ordered.  

The company is permitted to run a criminal background check only in their home state,  and in this case, he had no criminal history.  

"I am a hard worker.  I have a good heart.  I have a strong mind and strong body.  I cook at a homeless shelter.  I like to work with people.  I am a someone you can trust.  I have a good mind.  I..."

a.  "I have a good heart.

Questions we pose applicants are for the interview.  
Questions we pose in analysis are for ourselves. 

Who says, in an open statement, that they have a "good heart"?

*Perhaps someone who has been told that he does do not have a good heart.  
*Perhaps someone who has been told that he does have a good heart. 

Which might it be?

When I assert one answer over the other, it is natural that another analyst disagree. 

The sentence structure is such that the subject believes it. 

How can we know?

This is where a new growth period takes place in the career of the analyst; a growth period that should never come to an end. 

This is where the analyst/investigator's exposure to language and hundreds of statements, on a regular basis, serve him in his conclusion. 

This is where a report comes down to the skill of the analyst.  

In open statements, those who assert having a good heart have often committed crimes with their hands (physical) and may have been told by one's own mother, for example, "but you have a good heart, son..." by way of attempting to encourage better.  

The ancient gnostic belief that separates us into "two" is common today and human nature's aversion to guilt only strengthens it. 

It is like me claiming to have a "very tall, thin handsome man living inside of me", humorously, to illustrate the point.  

It is not only a sense of minimization of an action, but it is to disassociate with what was done.  

This was something that I have seen in applicants before, enough times to know it needs exploration.  

But there is more.   "I am a hard worker.  I have a good heart.  I have a strong mind and strong body.  I cook at a homeless shelter.  I like to work with people.  I am a someone you can trust.  I have a good mind.  I..."

Analyst recognize that any word repeated is going to be important. 

Here, in this very short sample, he used "mind" twice.  It is important to him so it is important to us.  

Why is it important to him?

Once it is a "strong" mind, and the second is a "good"  mind. 

Questions for us to ask ourselves:  

Why does he need to assert that his mind is "strong"?
Why does he need to assert that his mind is "good"?
Why does he need to assert these things here, in the job application process?
Why does he need to assert it twice?
Why does he need to assert it very early in his page-long statement, increasing it as a priority?

Who asserts having  a good mind?

If we consider, "I have a good heart", in context, we may consider that this applicant is telling the truth:  he is smart.  The necessity of including it here and via repetition, suggests a need. 

Might this, too, be that upon doing something "not smart", someone encouraged him with, "But you have a good mind.  You must use it!"?

This would be consistent with having a "good heart" in an open statement. 

We know that women who assert in an open statement "I am a great mother!" have been likely accused of the abuse and/or neglect and may even have been investigated, formally, for such.  

This is not a moral judgment, but a question as to "Why would this person feel the need, in an open statement (not as a result of an accusation nor of a question) to make this assertion?

I believe our subject is telling the truth about his belief system.  I may or may not agree with him, about the definition of hard work, but it is in the necessity of assertion that we see missing information.  

"I cook at the homeless shelter."


Is the subject applying for a position as a cook, cook's assistant, or anything related?

If so, this is would be an appropriate point for him to make.  It would be relevant to the position and a point of strength (+) in the analysis.  

Here, it was not a cooking position.  

In having done many such statements, I have found an anecdote connection to  court ordered community service. 

My conclusion for the company was that this subject is likely  concealing information of a criminal nature.  The criminal activity, if true, is not only likely serious, but may have included assault.  

The criminal history was out of state. 

It was not one point, alone, that caused me to make this conclusion, but the points above, which were affirmed in the entirety of his application.  

The accuracy of the conclusion could not be reached without the experience of many statements with much repetition.  

This is essential for the professional.  

Some jobs, by nature of the work, are marvelous for such learning. A former court stenographer recently wrote to me about this.  Imagine confronting words at court, hour after hour, and what it provides?  

This fall, I will be teaching deception detection at HIDTA (High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area) where many analysts have duties that are marvelously conducive to Statement Analysis training experience.  Anyone working with words has exposure to the practice necessary for excellence.  Incarceration where letters must be screened provide hour after hour of practice.  

In law enforcement hiring, we are able to employ Statement Analysis to effectively screen out those prone to violence, as well as those who struggle with self control. Most importantly, we are able to screen out those with a deep need for respect from the public.  

Law enforcement requires not only intelligence, but one who is personally secure in what he or she does, so that in carrying lethal force in authority, the law enforcement professional is more likely to react with appropriate restraint than one, for example, who craves respect from others and does not bear up with insult from an increasingly uncivil public inspired by exploitative politicians.  

For training in detecting deception, we offer both in -house seminars for law enforcement and business, as well as the Complete Statement Analysis Course which is done in your home, via lectures on CD (mp3) and workbook.  

For Tuition costs and enrollment please visit 

 Hyatt Analysis Services.  

Additional Trainings Offered  

We also offer Advanced Analysis for those who successfully complete the first course. 

We offer ongoing live team analysis training, month after month, for those enrolled or who have completed our first course.  

This can lead to formal certification and is accepted as Continuing Educational Units for professional licenses through the University of Maine (CEUs).  

For advanced professionals, including law enforcement, private investigators, and interviewers, we offer advanced seminars tailored to the skill and need of those attending.  This includes anonymous author identification, Analytical Interviewing and threat assessment.  

Sex Crimes Units:  we have entire teachings on the language of victims.  Where some adult victims sound deceptive, we are able to show those with experiential knowledge of a case, including perseveration from past trauma.  

Child Protective Services:  legally sound interviewing and analysis to protect children and families.  This includes content analysis and discerning such troublesome issues as coaching in language.  Forensic interviewing is enhanced through analysis.  

Employment Analysis:  Screening for discerning those who are most likely to steal, exploit, or cause damage to companies and departments.  This enables companies and law enforcement to hire the best and brightest.

General John Kelly: Marine Eulogy

I had a fascinating conversation where the subject stated a position of respect for someone he has not met, via his words, found here.  

With Statement Analysis' incessant focus upon deception, and the overwhelming statements of politicians and narrative media, a change is welcome. 

As we view a statement, we may also discern strength of character, within sentences, and even possibly draw inspiration from such. 

For readers:  what do you make of his sentence structure?  

I have a personal bias here. I believe that military leaders, in general, should be considered for offices of leadership in society.  This was once almost a prerequisite for us as leadership tested in extreme circumstances will have its production.  

Here is General John Kelly's address:  

“Two years ago when I was the Commander of all U.S. and Iraqi forces, in fact, the 22nd of April 2008, two Marine infantry battalions, 1/9 “The Walking Dead,” and 2/8 were switching out in Ramadi. One battalion in the closing days of their deployment going home very soon, the other just starting its seven-month combat tour.

Two Marines, Corporal Jonathan Yale and Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter, 22 and 20 years old respectively, one from each battalion, were assuming the watch together at the entrance gate of an outpost that contained a makeshift barracks housing 50 Marines.

The same broken down ramshackle building was also home to 100 Iraqi police, also my men and our allies in the fight against the terrorists in Ramadi, a city until recently the most dangerous city on earth and owned by Al Qaeda. Yale was a dirt poor mixed-race kid from Virginia with a wife and daughter, and a mother and sister who lived with him and he supported as well. He did this on a yearly salary of less than $23,000. Haerter, on the other hand, was a middle-class white kid from Long Island.

They were from two completely different worlds. Had they not joined the Marines they would never have met each other, or understood that multiple Americas exist simultaneously depending on one’s race, education level, economic status, and where you might have been born. But they were Marines, combat Marines, forged in the same crucible of Marine training, and because of this bond they were brothers as close, or closer, than if they were born of the same woman.

The mission orders they received from the sergeant squad leader I am sure went something like: “Okay you two clowns, stand this post and let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass.” “You clear?” I am also sure Yale and Haerter then rolled their eyes and said in unison something like: “Yes Sergeant,” with just enough attitude that made the point without saying the words, “No kidding sweetheart, we know what we’re doing.” They then relieved two other Marines on watch and took up their post at the entry control point of Joint Security Station Nasser, in the Sophia section of Ramadi, al Anbar, Iraq.

A few minutes later a large blue truck turned down the alley way—perhaps 60-70 yards in length—and sped its way through the serpentine of concrete jersey walls. The truck stopped just short of where the two were posted and detonated, killing them both catastrophically.
Twenty-four brick masonry houses were damaged or destroyed. A mosque 100 yards away collapsed. The truck’s engine came to rest two hundred yards away knocking most of a house down before it stopped.
Our explosive experts reckoned the blast was made of 2,000 pounds of explosives. Two died, and because these two young infantrymen didn’t have it in their DNA to run from danger, they saved 150 of their Iraqi and American brothers-in-arms.
When I read the situation report about the incident a few hours after it happened I called the regimental commander for details as something about this struck me as different. Marines dying or being seriously wounded is commonplace in combat. We expect Marines regardless of rank or MOS to stand their ground and do their duty, and even die in the process, if that is what the mission takes. But this just seemed different.
The regimental commander had just returned from the site and he agreed, but reported that there were no American witnesses to the event—just Iraqi police. I figured if there was any chance of finding out what actually happened and then to decorate the two Marines to acknowledge their bravery, I’d have to do it as a combat award that requires two eye-witnesses and we figured the bureaucrats back in Washington would never buy Iraqi statements. If it had any chance at all, it had to come under the signature of a general officer.
I traveled to Ramadi the next day and spoke individually to a half-dozen Iraqi police all of whom told the same story. The blue truck turned down into the alley and immediately sped up as it made its way through the serpentine. They all said, “We knew immediately what was going on as soon as the two Marines began firing.” The Iraqi police then related that some of them also fired, and then to a man, ran for safety just prior to the explosion.
All survived. Many were injured … some seriously. One of the Iraqis elaborated and with tears welling up said, “They’d run like any normal man would to save his life.”
What he didn’t know until then, he said, and what he learned that very instant, was that Marines are not normal. Choking past the emotion he said, “Sir, in the name of God no sane man would have stood there and done what they did.”
“No sane man.”
“They saved us all.”
What we didn’t know at the time, and only learned a couple of days later after I wrote a summary and submitted both Yale and Haerter for posthumous Navy Crosses, was that one of our security cameras, damaged initially in the blast, recorded some of the suicide attack. It happened exactly as the Iraqis had described it. It took exactly six seconds from when the truck entered the alley until it detonated.
You can watch the last six seconds of their young lives. Putting myself in their heads I supposed it took about a second for the two Marines to separately come to the same conclusion about what was going on once the truck came into their view at the far end of the alley. Exactly no time to talk it over, or call the sergeant to ask what they should do. Only enough time to take half an instant and think about what the sergeant told them to do only a few minutes before: “…let no unauthorized personnel or vehicles pass.”

Domestic Violence Accusation: Gurbaksh Chalal

Allegations: A man stands accused of battering his intimate partner in a particularly violent incident. The police allege 117 acts of violence in a 30 minute video.

CEO Gurbaksh Chahal

This was submitted by a new analyst in training and is rich with information to study. 

Exercise: Here are some things to focus in upon.  

Beyond the "reliable denial" we can note the following: 

1.  The sermon 

A "sermon" in statement analysis is considered an unnecessary moral lesson.  When such is given we always note the importance of them when they are unnecessary. 

For example, stating that one is "against Domestic Violence" is something that does not need to be said; unless...

it needs to be said by the subject. This is most often projective in nature.  

2.  Victim status

We note victim and linguistically victim-by-proxy status within a subject's statement.  
How many "victim cards" can you spot here?

3.  Human Empathy 

Do we find empathy for the victim here? 

Where do we find sympathy?

4.  Minimization

Look for not only minimization, but distancing language and passivity.  

5.  Tangent 

Note where the subject moves away from the allegation and why he moves 

6.  Personality Traits

We seek to learn the dominant personality traits. 

a  This is good for those who wish to familiarize themselves with the language of narcissism.  

b.  Signals of Manipulation are part of personality traits and are important, especially in D/V cases. 

Statement Made Nn Social Media By Accused:

Can You Handle the Truth?
The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Right now there are many people calling for my head. I am the recipient of death threats and hateful language aimed not just at what I was accused of, but attacking me for my ethnicity, my social class, and even my gender. Many would gladly lynch me based because of my origin — and not the facts of my case.
I know that I cannot change the minds of those who choose to hate me without cause — and base their hate only on the misrepresentations they have read, but I hope that others will be open minded and give me the opportunity to tell my story and paint a broader and very different picture.
Before I begin, I want to make it abundantly clear that I abhor violence of any kind, most especially against women. I created a foundation to fight hate crimes. I consider intimate partner violence and domestic violence in that same category.
I was charged with 45 felony counts of domestic violence. All of those charges were dropped, and ultimately the case settled when the DA’s office recognized they had no case and offered me a misdemeanor plea. I accepted that plea, because after a lot of soul searching I believed I was acting in the best interest of my company, my employees, my customers, my family, my friends and my investors.
I fully understand the outrage of those who believe I got off “lightly” as asserted by numerous postings on social media sites. But the $500 fine I agreed to pay, the equivalent of a speeding ticket, is simply what those misdemeanors require, and in no way reflects the toll that this ordeal has exacted on me. There can be no dollar value placed on the pain and suffering I have caused my family and friends, my employees and customers my investors, and everyone else who has looked up to me in the past. The humiliation and shame I feel is immeasurable. The dollar cost to my business and my reputation is incalculable.
I could have spent another year fighting the charges against me, which I truly wanted to do for my family’s sake. I would have prevailed in this fight because the allegations by police against me were overblown and grossly exaggerated. They made good press, but quite literally, they did not hold up in court.
I want you to know that this is not an excuse. I know that intimate partner violence is never excusable under any circumstances. I recognize that my temper got the better of me, and I will regret that for the rest of my life. But there is a difference between temper and domestic violence, and the truth of what actually happened is no where close to what the police claimed nor anywhere near what the online chatter and pundits are now making it out to be. I have two sisters, a niece and a mother. I love them all to death, and would never want any harm to ever come their way.
The situation that resulted in my legal case began when I discovered that my girlfriend was having unprotected sex for money with other people. (She testified to this in her interviews with the cops.) I make no excuse for losing my temper. When I discovered this fact and confronted my girlfriend, we had a normal argument. She called 9-11 after I told her I was going to contact her father regarding her activities. And yes, I lost my temper. I understand, accept full responsibility and sincerely apologize from the bottom of my heart for that. But I didn’t hit her 117 times, injure her, or cause any trauma as the UCSF medical reports clearly document. This was all overblown drama because it generates huge volumes of page views for the media given what I have accomplished in the valley.
The tape in question that was thrown was also bullshit. If anything, it actually made the SFPD look bad because they violently assaulted me as I opened my door despite my being fully cooperative.
The girl in question here, was herself so appalled by the false allegations made by the police, that she agreed to be photographed to demonstrate that there were no bruises or injuries. She could have left my apartment at any time during the argument. She felt safe and chose to stay. Those pictures she agreed to take would have been entered into evidence had my case proceeded, and they would have proven that the police claims were egregiously misleading.
Celebrities in sports, entertainment and business, and high net worth individuals in general are all potential targets. It was only a matter of time when I would fall prey.
I have to accept that many will still want to hate me no matter what I say to bring clarity to my legal case which is now over. But the fact of the matter is that they are jumping to conclusions based on falsified allegations. My case could not have settled in the way that it did if the allegations were true. Trust me, the DA’s were like a pack of rabid dogs coming after me. If they had a case, they would have stuck with it.
I only hope for two things: first that people who I work so hard to inspire are not discouraged by the false allegations and blogosphere spins, and, secondly, I hope others who are not in my shoes — and who have jumped on the bandwagon of criticism against me after the conclusion of my legal proceedings — will be open minded and give me the opportunity to tell them the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
I apologize to my family, my friends, employees, my customers and my investors all who have suffered from this bad publicity related to my personal matter. I have learned a lot from this experience, and I will continue to grow. As CEO of RadiumOne, I vow to make it a hugely successful company, a great place to work, and a wonderful partner in the community.
I’ve always wanted the best for others. I have been a tireless fighter against hate crimes through my Foundation, and a huge supporter of education through my scholarship funds. What I am proudest of in my success thus far in life is that I have created jobs and opportunities for people, while building commerce and strengthening our community. Actions speak louder than words, and it is these actions, not the false allegations and spins that you might have read through these various blogs shine light on my real character, on the person I truly am and always want to be.
What is the American Dream? That you can come from nothing and make something of yourself not once, not twice but three times, only to have all of it come crashing down from misinformation, that is spun wildly out of control into the world of make believe and then goes viral into the blogosphere. We need to hold on to the American Dream, and reject those who would rather make it a nightmare.

Our Founding Fathers believed in the dream, why not the bloggers.

Mark Redwine Arrested

As readers here know, Mark Redwine was indicated for both deception and guilty knowledge in the death of his son, Dylan. 

Congratulations to the dedicated investigators who stayed with this case. 

Dylan Redwine's father arrested in connection to son's death

KUSA - The father of Dylan Redwine was arrested early Saturday morning in the state of Washington in connection with his then-13-year-old son’s death, 9Wants to Know has learned.
A source familiar with the investigation told 9Wants to Know Mark Redwine was in Washington because he works as an over-the-road truck driver.
According to an indictment distributed by the La Plata County Sheriff's Office Saturday afternoon, Redwine is charged with second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death, 
According to a booking report posted online by Whatcom County, Washington, the 55-year-old is being held on "fugitive from justice warrants." 
He was booked into the county jail at around 1:20 p.m. 

Dylan Redwine disappeared from his father’s Vallecito Lake house in November 2012. His partial remains were found on Middle Mountain in June 2013. 
The boy's death has been ruled a homicide. 
Mark Redwine was identified as a person of interest in his son’s death early in the investigation, but no charges were filed until now. 
Items of interest were found during a July 2016 search for information related to Dylan’s disappearance. What those items were remains unclear. 
It was one of a number of searches during the past four years.
Early on, Dylan's mother, Elaine Hall, said she believed Mark Redwine had something to do with the disappearance of her son. 
Hall, her son Cory Redwine and her husband Mike Hall were cleared of any involvement in Dylan Redwine's death. 
Elaine and Mark Redwine have been divorced for years. Dylan Redwine lived with his mother near Colorado Springs, but went to Vallecito to spend Thanksgiving with his father. Shortly after Dylan Redwine arrived in La Plata County, he was never seen again.

Team Training Schedule July

This monthly schedule is posted in advance at   Hyatt Analysis Services website as well. 

Team Training Schedule for July 

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017 9am to 3pm EST.  

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017 10am to 4pm EST

Thursday, July 27th, 12noon to 6pm EST 

Information on Training 

Team Analysis Training is monthly guided training that is scheduled for 6 hours, which includes 2 short breaks and a lunch break.  It is accredited with the University of Maine CEUs (Continuing Educational Units) for professional licenses. 

The training is by linked invitation only and is confidential. It often includes "live" cases in which law enforcement requests assistance and is looking for an imminent response.  Here the team works on not only detecting deception, but content analysis.  

In some cases, teams are asked to work on identifying anonymous threatening letter authors.  

Enrollment is to those who have completed or are working in the Complete Statement Analysis course and may sign up on a month-to-month basis.  

A 25% discount is offered for yearly subscription.  With the yearly subscription, any missed months are simply added to. 

The trainings are attended by professionals from the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Russia and the Middle East.  Professional instructors continue their own educational advancement as well as new analysts in training, as the more advanced analysts provide supportive encouragement to those new to training.  

Participation is via Go To Meeting and analysts may attend from home or work, and continue their own office duties without disruption. 

Confidentiality Agreements are entered into by all,  and those who enroll in our Complete Statement Analysis Course receive one free invitation to a training. 

It is in this monthly guided training that the established foundation of learning is now built upon.  Here is where all the learning conducted is put to use.  The professional and the amateur work closely together for a common goal.  

For my own professional development, I often go into the training without viewing the submitted statement.  This puts me in a position for naturally challenging advancement.   Others have enrolled in additional training, even if the same statement is used again,  as they enjoy the excitement of not only digging deeper into a statement, but grow from the exposure to the experiences and intellects of others. Repetition only further helps build the analyst's internal "data base" of experience.  

Team Analysis Training goes beyond "keeping skill sets sharp" as the complexity of human nature and criminal cases forever introduces new and unexpected twists and turns.  

New analysts are often pleasantly surprised to witness the child-like enthusiasm for learning that advanced and professional analysts show.  

Those who complete a minimum of 60 hours of live ongoing training are eligible for both certification (Statement Analyst I)  as well as enrollment in the Advanced Course.  Here, upon successful completion and a minimum of 120 hours, they are to submit a final thesis which must meet approval from 3 professional analysts for certification.  

The training is generally the last full week of each month and is posted at the website.  The only exception may be a holiday week, which, too, is posted in advance. 

The invitation link and statement is generally emailed to the analyst the night before training.  In some cases, no statement is attached as part of an overall training strategy.  

If you have any questions, please contact 

If you are enrolled in training and did not receive the invitation link,  please email.  

Other trainings are scheduled but are either private or closed.  

There are "seating limitations" for the trainings and some new dates will be scheduled.

Terrorism and IQ Examined


The links between IQ, poor impulse control and crime are standard, as are the statistics that show males raised without fathers are likely to have poor grades, substance abuse, delinquency and incarceration by age 30.  This all goes into criminal analysis. 
With the world wide outbreak of Islamic terrorism, the origins are being studied in greater measure.  Islam, as an ideology, is a criminal supremacist ideology that has religious overtones.  At its core is coercive violence.  To understand the power of Islam one may see its resistance to reform over 14 centuries, as well as its day to day impact upon the West.  We cannot now travel, nor enter entertainment  facilities without intrusive searches and delays.  The challenge can be to separate what politicians who propagate Islamic migration and the support they receive in main stream media, from the truth, often reported "on the ground" by citizens who's own governments seek to silence them.  Some have been threatened, fined, arrested and even incarcerated for speaking the truth about this ideology.  It is an ideology that calls for the death penalty for criticism of it.  

The numbers of victims, crimes, assaults, rapes and murder, are staggering, even when minimized by political narrative.  The "open borders" and lack of vetting continues, unabated, with almost universal world wide approval.  Those who disagree with the narrative are immediately labeled "nazis, Islamophobes, and racist" by the elite. The need for such labeling, itself, reveals the deception behind it.  

This is an article about the ideology and its consequences. 

Although we may differ with proposed solutions, readers here will appreciate the work and research of Dr. Sennels and its ties to both exploitation and terrorism.   

Effects of Centuries of Extreme Inbreeding Among Muslims: Low IQ, Violence and Terrorism

Taboo: Almost half of Muslims are inbred. How does that affect intelligence and health? And is there a connection to terrorism and violence?

By Nicolai Sennels, Psychologist

Lise Egholm, long time school leader in the Muslim dominated area of Nørrebro in Copenhagen, Denmark, recently warned against not talking about the widespread practise of inbreeding among Muslims“”A study shows that infant mortality doubles along with a high risk of congenital malformations, also that increased birth defect rates and inheritance of recessive traits are more common in consanguineous marriages. I think it’s time to express concern. We must talk about this problem. All parents want healthy children. Fortunately, we live in a society where our health system does much to ensure that a pregnancy ends with a viable child. What amazes me and has made me wonder for years is why we do not talk about, maybe they even ban, the many cousin marriages?”
While health systems in otherwise less developed countries in the Muslim world are openly discussing and warning against consanguineous marriages, it is considered politically incorrect in the West to problematize the vast genetic and societal problems resulting from this religious-cultural practise.

Statistical research on Arabic countries shows that up to 34 percent of all marriages in Algiers are consanguineous (cousin marriages), 46 percent in Bahrain, 33 percent in Egypt, 80 percent in Nubia (southern area in Egypt), 60 percent in Iraq, 64 percent in Jordan, 64 percent in Kuwait, 42 percent in Lebanon, 48 percent in Libya, 47 percent in Mauritania, 54 percent in Qatar, 67 percent in Saudi Arabia, 63 percent in Sudan, 40 percent in Syria, 39 percent in Tunisia, 54 percent in the United Arabic Emirates and 45 percent in Yemen (Reproductive Health Journal, 2009 Consanguinity and reproductive health among Arabs.). In Pakistan 70 percent of marriages are consanguineous and in Turkey the percentage is 25-30. There seems to be no national data on Indonesia, but there are reports on 17 percent consanguinity on East Timor and a high level of consanguineous marriages in some areas of Java.”

Except for a few exceptions like Indonesia and Albania, roughly half of the population in the Islamic world is inbred, in most cases for generations.


The reason is partly religious. Muhammed himself married his cousin and according to the Quran, Allah allows sexual relationships between cousins (Quran 4:23-24).
According to Islamic law, Sharia, family honor is dependent upon the ability to control family members, which is another reason for keeping daughters inside their own blood-related family when marrying.

Sharia law’s extreme restrictions on women’s freedom of movement and contact with men probably also makes it more natural to marry one of the few men they are actually allowed to interact with.
Health and intelligence
A long list of mental and physical complications are related to inbreeding between cousins. These include an increased risk of depressionschizophrenia, and mental retardation. Mental retardation (less than an IQ of 69)
in children of consanguineous marriages is five times more frequent than in normal marriages. On average, cousin marriages results in children with 10-16 points lower IQ. Social abilities, including empathy, are also less developed with inbred people.
The cognitive consequences of Muslim inbreeding might explain why non-Western immigrants are more than 300 percent more likely to fail the Danish army’s intelligence test than native Danes. When it comes to the production of scientific work, the Islamic world produces less than 1/10 of the world average. Low average intelligence in the population and prioritizing faith over knowledge may also be the reason why fewer books have been translated into Arabic over the last 1,000 years than there are books translated in Spain every year.
On top of these mental complications comes the increased risk of many diseases related to genetic disorders leading to severe syndromes, handicaps, painful diseases, and decreased life expectancy.
Terror and violence
According to the Danish police, cousin-marriage is a cause for criminal behaviour because of low intelligence. This claim is confirmed by criminology research that long has established a connection between violent criminal behaviour and low intelligence.
It is also likely, that it is easier to convince people with low intelligence to follow the Islamic scriptures’ hundreds of invitations and direct orders to harm, terrorize and wage war against people – including fellow Muslims, even family members – who do not following a literal interpretation of those scriptures.
Another link between Muslim inbreeding and terror concerns handicaps and mental diseases. Yusuf Yadgari of the Medical University of Kabul has autopsied the remains of suicide bombers and his findings support this theory. Yadgari found that close to ninety percent were suffering from severe illness such as blindness, cancer, missing limbs or leprosy. Many Muslim societies, including that of Afghanistan, have a low social acceptance of handicaps and severe illnesses. According to Yadgari, being physically handicapped or mentally retarded often leads to exclusion in a society like Afghanistan, and becoming a martyr might be the only chance of achieving social recognition and honour — if not just a way to end the pain of being socially isolated (which is especially traumatizing in collectivist cultures like Islam). Al Qaida’s use of people with Down’s syndrome to commit terrorist attacks might be another unpleasant side effect of the many chromosomal illnesses that result from inbreeding between first cousins.

Ban cousin marriages?

A ban on consanguineous marriages is a win-win policy.
It will save million of future children and their families from suffering. School leader Lise Egholm gives an example:
“One second grade class had a reading test. Fortunately most children did very well. However, a small Turkish boy only had two correct answers out of 40. The teacher was very concerned and asked me to attend the a meeting with the mother. I looked at the student card and wondered that the family apparently only had one child. The mother said there had been three, but two died as infants because ‘we have bad blood’. She explained that her husband was her cousin, his parents were cousins ​​and her own parents were blood related too. She also said, ‘You can not teach my boy much, but it’s good that he lives.’ Soon after he was referred to a special school. This mother also told me that it was the men who were stupid because they want that ‘we marry our cousin, so we get bigger pieces of land, but they do not understand what we women know: that it is dangerous for the children if their parents are blood related.’ These two examples are from Turkish families, but I have encountered similar problems with Pakistani people and in Arab-speaking families.”
On top of these issues, tax payers would save billions from not having to handle the many costly societal challenges related to consanguineous marriage. Integrating into advanced cultures with our high-tech work market is not easy with an IQ of 75 and decreased social abilities.
Finally, it is likely that such a ban would decrease the amount of violence in our countries.
Similar benefits would come from banning migrants with consanguineous background who apply for residence.
