Dan Rather’s Body Language Clearly Shows How His Lawsuit Took It’s Toll On Him
September 30, 2009

Dan Rather Lawsuit

Even though Dan Rather  is 5 million dollars poorer due to legal bills  he spent on his case  and even though the court of appeals threw out his $70 million dollar breech of contract against  CBS , his not having to continue with the case may very well be a blessing in disguise. Personally, I don’t think he should appeal the decision, but rather move on with his life.

     Not only will he save on additional legal bills but he will be spared the added emotional distress which may have caused him health issues and even perhaps  shortened his life. If he looks this horrible now- so worn and beaten up, one can only imagine how he would look at the end of the trial where there would be no guarantee if he would win or lose anyway. One could only imagine the havoc that it would wreak on his physical being.

   Dan feels he was wronged by CBS removing him from his Evening News Post over a report that examined former President George Bush’s military service so he sued. But truth be known, Dan Rather would have been removed from his post anyway because most 77 year olds are  commonly relieved from their anchor duties.

     Networks want young good looking physically anchors that are easy on the eye, just like they wanted him back in 1981 after they made a then 65 year old news icon Walter Cronkite  retire. At that time, CBS thought Walter was too old for viewers to look at, so they hired the  tall, dark and handsome  Dan Rather with his appealing  voice and winning smile. Now close to 25 years later they did the same to him.

  It came full circle. Of course in this day and age of political correctness, no one could do what they did to poor Walter and make him retire because of his age. So they used  another excuse or made Dan’s life miserable by giving him less to do, so he would quit or they blamed it on whatever.

    Ageism is not always the case in the news media. Experts can appear on the air  even if they are in their 100’s. Look at Dr. Ruth and Dr. Joyce Bothers and so many aging politicians and legal analysts. In fact the older you are, the more seasoned you are , the more you know, So it works to your advantage. Of course you still have to look good.  

    If you continue to look good, are likeable, get along with people, and have a following (big ratings) you can remain on the air even as an anchor until  they wheel you out on a gurney. Case in point- Los Angeles anchor and my dear friend and on camera media mentor when I was a young reporter at KABC television, the late and great Jerry Dunphy. Everyone adored Jerry and he worked on the air until he was 86 when he passed away.

brockman_dunphy   I believe that Dan still has a good future ahead of him on television but he needs to do a few things first. Since, like it or not, looks are what counts in the media, especially for a talking head, he needs to spend some of that money he just saved from not going forward with the case and invest in :

a)  a great plastic surgeon with a light touch who will just nip and tuck and not pull his skin so tight that he looks like he will be wearing a Halloween mask. He needs the eye bags removed, the lids lifted, jowels lifted, turkey neck tightened. moles removes, and  a deep facial peel to get rid of the wrinkles. He needs to grow his hair out and have it cut and styled so it better frames his face. It can be silver and he could look loike a silver fox if he styled it like Bill Clinton’s hair.

  b) He then needs along vacation where he chills out and sees the world, not from a reporters eyes but from a human being’s eyes. He needs to travel around the globe and visit some starving children who could really benefit from some of the money he saved on his legal bills. He needs to donate some of that money to them to make sure they can eat and have a roof over their heads and even make sure that they have some money so that can receive proper medical attention.

c) Then after he is humbled by helping those needy children around the world, he then needs to take some more of  the money he saved from not  having to continue the lawsuit and  do a compelling and entertaining television show. In the show he needs to puts his ego aside so that he  is not the only one in front of the camera.  Instead he needs to develop new talent and  hire a team of competent really attractive on camera people to deliver the message of the show. I think that with all of his experience he would add a credibility to the show while his “team” would add other elements like sex appeal and humor.

   Then he needs to get behind some major charitable causes that he believes in and raise money to support them. He needs to give back what he has been given – money fame, a great lifestyle.  He needs to get over his bitterness, stop whining and complaining and move on. He needs to put  his energy into doing some good in the world instead of wasting it on a losing battle.

Steven Spielberg’s Body Language shows He Couldn’t Be Prouder of Drew Barrymore’s Directorial Debut
September 30, 2009

steven and drew

This touching  photo of Steven Spielberg and Drew Barrymore at the screening of her movie Whip It, says it all. With his beaming smile, head and upper torso leaning into drew with his left foot pointing in Drew’s direction shows the body language of any proud “papa” as  Drew makes her directorial debut. Drew responds in kind with her head on Steven’s shoulder and  upper torso  leaning into him as she beams a megawatt smile. It’s so amazing when you think back to little Drew being directed by Steven in ET . And here she is now, all grown up and following in her mentor’s footsteps as a director. How inspiring!

Latest and Most Disgusting Body Language of Al Qaeda- Storing Bomb Materials Inside Their Anal Cavities
September 30, 2009

    Every time I go to the airport and have to take off my shoes to pass through security,I really don’t mind. I always remember the  Al Qaeda shoe bomber who nearly killed a planeload of passengers by hiding explosives in his shoes. So, if as  a  result, everyone has to take off their shoes to assure passenger safety, that is fine with me.

BRITAIN NIRELAND TERROR PLOT

     As soon as  I learned  today that there was a new technique Al Qaeda is using  to store bomb material inside their body cavity, namely their rectums, to avoid detection at airport security,  I now  welcome the idea of  a full airport body scan for everyone who  plans to fly.  

AIRPORT_X-RAY_SCREENING

     Apparently an al Qaeda operative avoided detection by two sets of airport security as he had a pound of high explosives plus a detonator inserted into his rectum.This  Al Qaeda operative who was one of the most wanted men in Saudi Arabia,  was also able avoid detection by palace security as he detonated a bomb almost killing with  Saudi Prince Mohammed Bin Nayef, head of Saudi Arabia’s counter terrorism operations, was thankfully only slightly wounded.

   Security analysts  say that  on a plane at altitude, the effects of such a bomb could be catastrophic. And there is no current security system that could stop it other than to require people to strip naked at the airport the security analyst reports.  So  as  a result to this recent mishap it is only a matter of time until every airport around the world is equipped with a full body scan machine.

Prince 3

But for those who raise a red flag in terms of having something suspicious in their body in addition to  telling behavior and  specific body language signals often seen in terrorists , a  full body cavity  search would no doubt be a must, especially of the evidence needed to be retrieved.

   For those who are appalled at the notion of this or who are  concerned about their right to privacy, the message is simple- don’t fly! Find another way to do business where you don’t have to fly  like teleconferencing. For those who still want to see the world  and don’t want to fly, they may have to resort to 3D travel logs.

Kate Gosselin’s Body Language Shows She Either Ignores Maddy or is Agitated Around Her
September 28, 2009

.kate and cara gosselin

Kate might as well have left her older twin daughter Maddy at home instead of taking her on her errands. As you can see in this first photo Kate walks  three steps ahead of an annoyed Maddy, looks in the opposite direction Maddy in which is looking, and doesn’t even realize her daughter is behind her. Kate  is more interested in talking on her phone. Maddy who seems to be  struggling to keep up isn’t too pleased that she is not getting the “quality” and “alone” time that  she was no doubt promised with mommy. Maddy’s  facial expression shows she is quite stressed.

 

kate and cara gosselin

Now that Kate is finally off her cell phone you would think she would show a little attention to Maddy, but she doesn’t. Instead, Kate continues to walk two steps  ahead of her daughter. Kate  appears to be ignoring the little girl even though she took her hand. The little girl leans her head away from Kate. There is clearly no mother daughter bonding, connection, or interaction going on here.

kate and cara gosselin

But when there is finally an interaction it is not a pleasant one at all. Even though Kate manages to slow down so that Maddy can catch up with her stepwise, there is  still a lot of physical distance between them as far as their bodies are positioned.  There is  a tense scowl on both of their faces complete with neck muscle tension and furrowed forehead which shows  and anger and upset between mother and daughter.

    In watching five seasons of the show, Maddy is definitely the one child which needs the most attention and the most love. On the show she is usually seen pouting, kicking, yelling, crying, screaming, slapping, hitting, or expressing some type of upset. The only time I ever saw her happy was when she was an episode in front of a camera taking modeling photos with her sister. This clearly demonstrates how much she craves attention and being noticed. Her relationship with Kate on the shows also demonstrates how poorly connected the  are. Maddy is full of rage towards Kate and the photos of them on  this little outing makes it clear as to the reason why Maddy feels so angry. She is constantly  ignored and disrespected by her mother. When she finally is paid attention to, it is with anger and hostility on Kate’s part.  

   My feeling is that Kate needs to  spend less time trying to be famous on camera, less time doing  interviews trashing Jon, and spend  more “real” quality time with Maddy in a qualified child therapists office so that she can help Maddy get to the bottom of her anger towards her mother. She and Maddy both need to be in a family therapy situation where Kate not only learns better communication techniques, but learn how to  communicate more love and affection towards Maddy – something poor little Maddy  is obviously starving for. Kate needs to do it now, before it is too late.

Body Language Fallout from the 70’s from John Phillips to Roman Polanski Where “Free Love” and No Boundaries Came Back to Haunt Them
September 27, 2009

PEOPLE-US-POLANSKI-ARREST

The recent horrific allegations that McKenzie Phillips made about her rock star father having  a sexual relationship with her when she was  younger and now the arrest of film director Roman Polanski in Zurich where he may be  extradited back to the US to face charges for having sex with a 13 year old girl at the time back in 1977 is testimony to what happens when drug takes over one’s life and all moral boundaries fly out the window.

      MacKenzie said in her Oprah interview that she forgave her father just as the now 45 year old woman Samantha Geimer who long ago identified herself publically forgave Polanski for what he did to her 30 years ago. But there is no doubt that psychological damage from these misguided acts tormented these two women their entire lives. We certainly saw evidence of this with MacKenzie Phillip with yet another drug bust under her belt  a year ago and her countless stints in rehab. And we have also  seen how the repercussions of Polanski’s act  affected  Smantha Geimer  who wants the case dropped against Roman Polnski so that she and her family can finally get on with her life.

    There is no doubt that Roman Polanski had many psychological issues due to the repercussions of his parents being killed in a  concentration camp and he courageously  escaping the Holocaust having o fend for himself as a young boy. The Manson family murder of his then 8 month pregnant wife  Sharon Tate in 1974  didn’t help either. There is no doubt that Polanski went of the psychological deep end three years later in 1977 when he plied a young girl with a part of  a Quaalude ( a popular recreational drug during the 70’s) which he most likely took as well and then had sex with her. He plead guilty to one of the charges against him and was sent to prison for 42 days of evaluation which lawyers agreed would be his full sentence. Unfortunately the now deceased judge tried to renege on the plea bargain so Polanski fled to France where he remained productive in the film world, accomplishing film masterpieces like the Oscar winning film “The Pianist: in 2002  that have subsequently enriched and enlightened  the world. He has been married to French singer and actress Emanulle Seigner since 1989 and has two children and has lived a productive life.

      While his act of having sex with a minor 30 years ago was wrong, I think it is even more wrong to

reawaken case by bringing him back to the US and retrying him for statutory rape. He made amends

with his victim as she won a large  sum of money in a civil suit against him. She has made peace with the

situation. She has moved on and has even been one of the biggest supporters in terms of dropping the

criminal case against Polanski. In fact reportedly told the court in a written statement:

“If Polanski cannot stand before the court to make this request, I, as the victim, can and I, as the victim do. I have urged that this matter come to a formal legal end. I have urged that the district attorney and the court dismiss these charges.   She also says how  continual discussion of the details of her case decades later by prosecutors “causes harm to her, to her husband and children.”

    For the sake of this woman’s mental health who has been victimized enough, I fully agree with her ithat  this case against Polanski  needs to be dropped. But what never needs to be dropped is  the awareness of how  all  proper judgment is thrown out the window enabling egregious behaviors like having sex with one’s child or having sex with an underage child  to  occur when there is the lethal combination of  a.  self entitlement, b. no boundaries, and  c. drugs.

   The Free Love Decade of the 70’s shows us that there was  defiantly no such thing as “Free Love”.  AS we have just seen, Love  always has boundaries especially when family members or young children are involved.

Netanyahus Body Language at the UN Shows Grace, Elegance and Strength as He As States “Have You No Shame!”
September 24, 2009

netanyahu
There was nothing more egregious than the UN allowing one of the most ignorant humans in the world, Holocaust denier and hate monger Iran’s Ahmadinijad to speak. The fact that such countries as Israel and Canada did not even attend while the USA, UK, Austrailia, Cost Rica, France, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, and New Zealand walked out as an act of defiance was a testimony to how people all over the world will not tolerate such hatred.
Israel’s Prime Minister’s Benyamin Netanyahu’s powerful body language and rich resonant voice quality showed a true leader who handled the situation grace, aplomb, and firm strength as he addressed the members of the at the UN General Assembly in response to the Iranian President’s disgraceful speech. He also urged the international community to stop Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons. Here is Netanyahu’s powerful and moving speech.
Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Nearly 62 years ago, the United Nations recognized the right of the Jews, an ancient people 3,500 years-old, to a state of their own in their ancestral homeland.
I stand here today as the Prime Minister of Israel, the Jewish state, and I speak to you on behalf of my country and my people.
The United Nations was founded after the carnage of World War II and the horrors of the Holocaust. It was charged with preventing the recurrence of such horrendous events.

Nothing has undermined that central mission more than the systematic assault on the truth. Yesterday the President of Iran stood at this very podium, spewing his latest anti-Semitic rants. Just a few days earlier, he again claimed that the Holocaust is a lie.

Last month, I went to a villa in a suburb of Berlin called Wannsee. There, on January 20, 1942, after a hearty meal, senior Nazi officials met and decided how to exterminate the Jewish people. The detailed minutes of that meeting have been preserved by successive German governments. Here is a copy of those minutes, in which the Nazis issued precise instructions on how to carry out the extermination of the Jews. Is this a lie?

A day before I was in Wannsee, I was given in Berlin the original construction plans for the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. Those plans are signed by Hitler’s deputy, Heinrich Himmler himself. Here is a copy of the plans for Auschwitz-Birkenau, where one million Jews were murdered. Is this too a lie?

This June, President Obama visited the Buchenwald concentration camp. Did President Obama pay tribute to a lie?

And what of the Auschwitz survivors whose arms still bear the tattooed numbers branded on them by the Nazis? Are those tattoos a lie? One-third of all Jews perished in the conflagration. Nearly every Jewish family was affected, including my own. My wife’s grandparents, her father’s two sisters and three brothers, and all the aunts, uncles and cousins were all murdered by the Nazis. Is that also a lie?

Yesterday, the man who calls the Holocaust a lie spoke from this podium. To those who refused to come here and to those who left this room in protest, I commend you. You stood up for moral clarity and you brought honor to your countries.

But to those who gave this Holocaust-denier a hearing, I say on behalf of my people, the Jewish people, and decent people everywhere: Have you no shame? Have you no decency?

A mere six decades after the Holocaust, you give legitimacy to a man who denies that the murder of six million Jews took place and pledges to wipe out the Jewish state.

What a disgrace! What a mockery of the charter of the United Nations! Perhaps some of you think that this man and his odious regime threaten only the Jews. You’re wrong.

History has shown us time and again that what starts with attacks on the Jews eventually ends up engulfing many others.

This Iranian regime is fueled by an extreme fundamentalism that burst onto the world scene three decades ago after lying dormant for centuries. In the past thirty years, this fanaticism has swept the globe with a murderous violence and cold-blooded impartiality in its choice of victims. It has callously slaughtered Moslems and Christians, Jews and Hindus, and many others. Though it is comprised of different offshoots, the adherents of this unforgiving creed seek to return humanity to medieval times.

Wherever they can, they impose a backward regimented society where women, minorities, gays or anyone not deemed to be a true believer is brutally subjugated. The struggle against this fanaticism does not pit faith against faith nor civilization against civilization.

It pits civilization against barbarism, the 21st century against the 9th century, those who sanctify life against those who glorify death.

The primitivism of the 9th century ought to be no match for the progress of the 21st century. The allure of freedom, the power of technology, the reach of communications should surely win the day. Ultimately, the past cannot triumph over the future. And the future offers all nations magnificent bounties of hope. The pace of progress is growing exponentially.

It took us centuries to get from the printing press to the telephone, decades to get from the telephone to the personal computer, and only a few years to get from the personal computer to the internet.

What seemed impossible a few years ago is already outdated, and we can scarcely fathom the changes that are yet to come. We will crack the genetic code. We will cure the incurable. We will lengthen our lives. We will find a cheap alternative to fossil fuels and clean up the planet.

I am proud that my country Israel is at the forefront of these advances – by leading innovations in science and technology, medicine and biology, agriculture and water, energy and the environment. These innovations the world over offer humanity a sunlit future of unimagined promise.

But if the most primitive fanaticism can acquire the most deadly weapons, the march of history could be reversed for a time. And like the belated victory over the Nazis, the forces of progress and freedom will prevail only after an horrific toll of blood and fortune has been exacted from mankind. That is why the greatest threat facing the world today is the marriage between religious fanaticism and the weapons of mass destruction.

The most urgent challenge facing this body is to prevent the tyrants of Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Are the member states of the United Nations up to that challenge? Will the international community confront a despotism that terrorizes its own people as they bravely stand up for freedom?

Will it take action against the dictators who stole an election in broad daylight and gunned down Iranian protesters who died in the streets choking in their own blood? Will the international community thwart the world’s most pernicious sponsors and practitioners of terrorism?

Above all, will the international community stop the terrorist regime of Iran from developing atomic weapons, thereby endangering the peace of the entire world?

The people of Iran are courageously standing up to this regime. People of goodwill around the world stand with them, as do the thousands who have been protesting outside this hall. Will the United Nations stand by their side?

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The jury is still out on the United Nations, and recent signs are not encouraging. Rather than condemning the terrorists and their Iranian patrons, some here have condemned their victims. That is exactly what a recent UN report on Gaza did, falsely equating the terrorists with those they targeted.

For eight long years, Hamas fired from Gaza thousands of missiles, mortars and rockets on nearby Israeli cities. Year after year, as these missiles were deliberately hurled at our civilians, not a single UN resolution was passed condemning those criminal attacks. We heard nothing – absolutely nothing – from the UN Human Rights Council, a misnamed institution if there ever was one.

In 2005, hoping to advance peace, Israel unilaterally withdrew from every inch of Gaza. It dismantled 21 settlements and uprooted over 8,000 Israelis. We didn’t get peace. Instead we got an Iranian backed terror base fifty miles from Tel Aviv. Life in Israeli towns and cities next to Gaza became a nightmare. You see, the Hamas rocket attacks not only continued, they increased tenfold. Again, the UN was silent.

Finally, after eight years of this unremitting assault, Israel was finally forced to respond. But how should we have responded? Well, there is only one example in history of thousands of rockets being fired on a country’s civilian population. It happened when the Nazis rocketed British cities during World War II. During that war, the allies leveled German cities, causing hundreds of thousands of casualties. Israel chose to respond differently. Faced with an enemy committing a double war crime of firing on civilians while hiding behind civilians – Israel sought to conduct surgical strikes against the rocket launchers.

That was no easy task because the terrorists were firing missiles from homes and schools, using mosques as weapons depots and ferreting explosives in ambulances. Israel, by contrast, tried to minimize casualties by urging Palestinian civilians to vacate the targeted areas.

We dropped countless flyers over their homes, sent thousands of text messages and called thousands of cell phones asking people to leave. Never has a country gone to such extraordinary lengths to remove the enemy’s civilian population from harm’s way.

Yet faced with such a clear case of aggressor and victim, who did the UN Human Rights Council decide to condemn? Israel. A democracy legitimately defending itself against terror is morally hanged, drawn and quartered, and given an unfair trial to boot.

By these twisted standards, the UN Human Rights Council would have dragged Roosevelt and Churchill to the dock as war criminals. What a perversion of truth. What a perversion of justice.

Delegates of the United Nations,

Will you accept this farce?

Because if you do, the United Nations would revert to its darkest days, when the worst violators of human rights sat in judgment against the law-abiding democracies, when Zionism was equated with racism and when an automatic majority could declare that the earth is flat.

If this body does not reject this report, it would send a message to terrorists everywhere: Terror pays; if you launch your attacks from densely populated areas, you will win immunity. And in condemning Israel, this body would also deal a mortal blow to peace. Here’s why.

When Israel left Gaza, many hoped that the missile attacks would stop. Others believed that at the very least, Israel would have international legitimacy to exercise its right of self-defense. What legitimacy? What self-defense?

The same UN that cheered Israel as it left Gaza and promised to back our right of self-defense now accuses us –my people, my country – of war crimes? And for what? For acting responsibly in self-defense. What a travesty!

Israel justly defended itself against terror. This biased and unjust report is a clear-cut test for all governments. Will you stand with Israel or will you stand with the terrorists?

We must know the answer to that question now. Now and not later. Because if Israel is again asked to take more risks for peace, we must know today that you will stand with us tomorrow. Only if we have the confidence that we can defend ourselves can we take further risks for peace.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

All of Israel wants peace.

Any time an Arab leader genuinely wanted peace with us, we made peace. We made peace with Egypt led by Anwar Sadat. We made peace with Jordan led by King Hussein. And if the Palestinians truly want peace, I and my government, and the people of Israel, will make peace. But we want a genuine peace, a defensible peace, a permanent peace. In 1947, this body voted to establish two states for two peoples – a Jewish state and an Arab state. The Jews accepted that resolution. The Arabs rejected it.

We ask the Palestinians to finally do what they have refused to do for 62 years: Say yes to a Jewish state. Just as we are asked to recognize a nation-state for the Palestinian people, the Palestinians must be asked to recognize the nation state of the Jewish people. The Jewish people are not foreign conquerors in the Land of Israel. This is the land of our forefathers.

Inscribed on the walls outside this building is the great Biblical vision of peace: “Nation shall not lift up sword against nation. They shall learn war no more.” These words were spoken by the Jewish prophet Isaiah 2,800 years ago as he walked in my country, in my city, in the hills of Judea and in the streets of Jerusalem.

We are not strangers to this land. It is our homeland. As deeply connected as we are to this land, we recognize that the Palestinians also live there and want a home of their own. We want to live side by side with them, two free peoples living in peace, prosperity and dignity.

But we must have security. The Palestinians should have all the powers to govern themselves except those handful of powers that could endanger Israel.

That is why a Palestinian state must be effectively demilitarized. We don’t want another Gaza, another Iranian backed terror base abutting Jerusalem and perched on the hills a few kilometers from Tel Aviv.

We want peace.

I believe such a peace can be achieved. But only if we roll back the forces of terror, led by Iran, that seek to destroy peace, eliminate Israel and overthrow the world order. The question facing the international community is whether it is prepared to confront those forces or accommodate them.

Over seventy years ago, Winston Churchill lamented what he called the “confirmed unteachability of mankind,” the unfortunate habit of civilized societies to sleep until danger nearly overtakes them.

Churchill bemoaned what he called the “want of foresight, the unwillingness to act when action will be simple and effective, the lack of clear thinking, the confusion of counsel until emergency comes, until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong.”

I speak here today in the hope that Churchill’s assessment of the “unteachibility of mankind” is for once proven wrong.

I speak here today in the hope that we can learn from history — that we can prevent danger in time.

In the spirit of the timeless words spoken to Joshua over 3,000 years ago, let us be strong and of good courage. Let us confront this peril, secure our future and, God willing, forge an enduring peace for generations to come.

MacKenzie Phillips Body Language on Oprah Shows She Was Absolutely Tellling the Truth
September 24, 2009

      McKenzie Phillips on Oprah

It is so unthinkable and so against society’s “mores” that it is no wonder that many may not want to believe MacKenzie Phillip’s story when she appeared on Oprah saying  that she consensual incestual sex with her late rock star father John Phillips . But according to her body language and voice charactertistics, MacKenzie Phillips  was indeed being honest and forthright and telling the truth.

In fact, her stepmother  Genevieve Waite as so appalled by the news that she released a statement denouncing McKenzie’s Phillips’ story by stating

“I am stunned by Mackenzie’s terrible allegations about her father. I would often complain about her overly familiar attitudes towards him, and he said it was just her way. John was a good man. … He was incapable, no matter how drunk or drugged he was, to have sexual relations with his own child.”

   Genevieve’s statement actually confirms the closeness between MacKenzie and John as she mentions that MacKenzie’s “overly familiar attitudes towards him”. When she  states “He was incapable, no matter how drunk or drugged he was, to have sexual relations with his own child.” She is clearly in denial as a) she wasn’t there or privey to what went on between them as only they knew and b) when someone is drunk or drugged, all boundaries fly out the window. People do horrible things under the influence. Having sex with one’s daughter is one of those things.

  No matter what anyone believes, according to her body language and voice and speech patterns MacKenzie showed no signs of deception. She expressed herself openly and never hesitiated. She looked directly at Oprah when she spoke. She was definite both in her verbal  statements as well as  how she confidently held her body as she made those statements. Her voice was strong and inflected as she expressed the  myriad of emotions  she felt as she described her horrific past. Her eyes were wide open, her posture was open and she  spoke in a strong deliberate resonant voice.

  It was clear that McKenzie was not proud of her past but is clearly dealing with it as best as she can . The fact that  she has openly accepted and admitted  her past including  her life of drug use and  the egregious behavior with her father speaks volumes. It took a lot of courage  for her to do this and it is no doubt going to help her on her road to healing

Michael Jackson’s Body Language During Rehearsal Footage Showed a Focused, Strong, Confident In Control Professional
September 23, 2009

Michael Jackson's last rehersal In the recent clip that that has been released showing Michael Jackson during a rehearsal for his comeback tour where he is trying out a new dance move “The Penguin” Michael looks very focused, confident and completely in control.
With all of the recent allegations about Michael’s prescription drug use you certainly don’t see evidence of it in his video. In fact he displays behavior that shows a consummate professional at work.
Even though his body was thin, he did not look fragile. Instead he looked strong and agile as he performed some very unique dance moves with ease.
We even see him in control of the band as at the beginning of the tape we see him pause for a moment in his dancing and say “ stop right there” as he choreographs his moves.
Michael’s voice is strong both when he sings and when he speaks. He has a combination of a rich vibrato and his signature breathiness as he sings.
In this footage Michael looked like a man who was ready to go on the road and give it is very best .Seeing this newly released video really hit home as to how this incredibly talented performer was willing and able to share his gift with the world.
Because of this video and others Michael will still continue to delight us and entertain us as we watch this amazingly talented human being who’s talents were truly a gift. May he rest in peace knowing how many people he inspired, delighted, and entertained.

Kate’s Body Language- Snarky Laugh and Leg Kicking While Discussing Jon’s Dogs Literally Reflect Her Disdain for Them and Joy in “Kicking them Out”
September 22, 2009

KateGosselinSpeaking Dogs
Kate Gosslin’s body language at the Southern Woman’s Show in North Carolina where she kept kicking her crossed leg when she spoke of Jon’s dogs ( as if to kick the dogs) as well as her snarky sarcastic laugh when she began speaking about them, showed how she really can’t stand the dogs which she banished from the family home.
Her reason for getting rid of German Shepherds Shoka and Nala was because she doesn’t want to care for them when it’s not Jon’s turn to be at the family’s home as on the video we see her laughing as she says about Jon “He called the breeder and took them back for a short period of time. I’m feeling like I have not enough time to take care of my kids, let alone give the dogs what they need, and the kids surprisingly weren’t that upset about it.

Kate’s insensitivity about the dogs is just one more thing about Kate that I find repulsive. First of all dogs are not toys or play things. They are members of the family and should be treated as such. They cannot be banished one day and unbanished the next day and then banished again. It is not good for them. It is not healthy for them emotionally.
When Kate says that the” kids surprisingly weren’t that upset about it” her comment is very disturbing. It is no surprise that the children obviously did not bond with the dogs because their control freak and clean and neat freak mother has brainwashed them into thinking that the dogs are filthy, germy, dirty creatures and shouldn’t be kissed and hugged and played with. If they had bonded with the dogs, there would definitely be a lot of crying and heartbreak with those kids when they realized the dogs were no longer a part of their family.
Now, let’s look at it from the dog’s point of view. The sad photos of Jon having to put them into their cages to be returned to the breeders was heartbreaking. Their tails were down and they sniffed Jon and went over to him for affection. They were sad and frightened, They had no idea where they were going. After being banished to their breeders and then now returning back to the home for a short while, they are even more confused and depressed. That is not fair to the dogs. In fact it is downright cruel. It is no laughing matter as reflected by Kate’s snarky chuckle. It’s sad and cruel on Kate’s part.
But I can’t help but think that at least some of those kids especially, Adan the one with the glasses, who is an animal lover since he could walk and Leah who is a reptile lover obsessed with alligators, would be upset by not having their dogs around. How would Kate even know that the kids were upset anyway? For an entire week she has been in NYC guest hosting the View, That weekend she was still in the city shooting a pilot for the Paula Deen Show and all this week has been speaking at conferences like the Southern Women’s Conference in North Carolina. So how would she know how those children were feeling anyway?
Then she cavalierly says “They’ll come back I’m sure at some point. But for now, I just needed a break.” What about the dogs? This break is bad for them. .She certainly has enough money now to hire a babysitter for the dogs just like she ahs hired the myriad of babysitters and helpers for those kids. We know for a fact that she had at least 40 of them whom she fired. So what is the big deal about having one more person in that household to take care of the dogs?.
When Kate also joked about the strength of the dogs by saying .”I am amazed,” “They sleep in a metal crate… a huge metal crate. They bent the bars and got out. I think in the winter I’m going to have them pull the kids in a sleigh.” I was nauseated.
The reason those dogs got out of the crate and bent the metal was because they were frustrated about having to be ignored and tortured by remaining in such a small space for house. With that huge house and all that land why couldn’t they have a pen built where they are free to roam about and frolic and have fun like dogs are supposed to do.? They are not to be used to pull children on a sleigh. That is what horses who have stronger back muscles are able to do. Using a dog to pull a heavy sleigh with numerous heavy children would be abusing the animal. That is unconscionable!
II think that those poor dogs should remain with the breeder and that the breeder should find them a loving home where they are wanted and will be loved. I am sure there are lots of people who would jump at the chance to have those beautiful dogs In order to repair the emotional damage that these poor dogs have endured they will no doubt need a loving home with lots of attention and affection. No animal should be in a home unless they are one hundred percent loved and wanted by everyone in the family.

Kate Gosselin’s Body Language on the View Shows She Finally Got Whopped By An Angry and Disgusted Whoopie
September 20, 2009

Whoopi had enough of Kate’s phony victim spin about how Jon wouldn’t let her into the house because he was with a babysitter. At first Whoopi tried to be a fair and objective host as we see from her body language, where she steeples her hands together and listens intently to what Kate has to say.

But then Whoopi couldn’t sit there and listen to Kate justifying her wrong actions of going over to the house when it was not her turn to be with the kids. So, Whoopi raising her voice just a tad, says to Kate, who continues to justify her bad behavior,      “ You Can’t do it”.

Whoopi tells cake "You can't do that"

But Kate continues to blather on about her ridiculous “motherly instincts” and “intuition” even though she  admits she never even met the babysitter before. Whoopi and gives Kate a dose of reality by twice telling a self righteous Kate “You could have gone to jail” for interfering with a custody situation as she pints an angry finger at Kate.

Whoopi tels Kate she could have gone to jail which KAte laughs off.
Whoopi tels Kate she could have gone to jail which Kate laughs off.

But Kate continues to laugh off Whoopi’s comment, justify and explain herself continuing to blather on about motherly instinct. It is now  mid show and Whoopi is really angry as you can see from her facial expression where her lower jaw juts forward. In fact she is enraged as she harshly taps her index finger on the table to make her point. You can also see the anger inWhoopi’s  other hands which is cupped in a semifist like fashion .

Midshow and Whoopi is livid and she beats on desk with her fingers that are cupped indicating anger.

It's mid show and Whoopi is livid with Kate.

Next we see and hear a stammering and stuttering Kate  who’s body language belies her. She knows she can’t hold her own next to Whoopi who is livid and disgusted by her. We can clearly see Kate’s defeated body language with her shoulders rounded and head bowed down. Kate, knowing that she lost her match against Whoopi quickly resorts  to playing  the victim sympathy card by saying how her kids weren’t around when this happened when the police came to her  and how she she sat by the gate and cried when all of this happened.

Kate's head bowed down, rounded shoulders and looking away shows he is not match for Whoopi

Now Whoopi is hopping mad as she hears one of the dumbest people on the planet, Sherry Sheppard who in her first few weeks on the View had no idea that the “earth was round and thought it was flat”. (This is no joke!) Sherry tried to “make nice” with Kate and tells herown lame story about going over to her husband’s house and with Sherry’s  eyes bulging out and moving her head side to side acting as though she;s so touch realtes how  says she asked her husband” who’s watching my kid”. Whoopi obviously tunes Sherr out at this point and is  hopping mad .

Now Joy Behar gets into the mix. She probably senses that Whoopi feels like ripping off Kate’s now curled side bang that no longer hides her eye. So, Joy  tries to add a little humor but it’s not working as she bluntly tells Kate that Jon was winning the PR war when he told how Kate was “shrewish” she was and how now Kate is winning the PR war because Jon was with the babysitter.

Then Kate replies  that she is not out to win any PR war but she wants to be the best mother. By now I am sure that Whoopi feels like to vomit as she hears Kate’s programmed well rehearsed spin saying once again how her motherly instincts kicked in and how she never even met the babysitter before.

If Kate wanted to be such a good mother Whoppi was probably thinking,” then get off the stage here at  the View and go home and take care of your kids and stop fighting with Jon for the whole world to see!”

 Then the producer must have said  in Whoopi’s earpiece, “‘Strech the segment” in so Whoopi  with a look of complete disgust on her face  ,makes a a stretching gesture with her arms accomplainied by  a buzzing sound with her mouth after saying the word “stretch”. She is appalled that  she will have to continue to be tortured by Kate’s interview and presence on the stage even longer.

WHoopi's disusted. She's had enough of Kate and is angry as seen by her cupped hand
Whoopi’ is completly disusted. She’s had enough of Kate and is angry as seen by her cupped hand and her other hand placed near her hip

Joy, sensing Whoopi’s frustration at Whoopi’s now  having to increase the length of this agonizing segment , once  again enters into the fray to make a joke about how male performers have run off with their babysitter and how Kate should have drooled more.

 Then Sherry opens her mouth and tries to defend Kate . Nut now  Whoopi is totally  beside herself  

Whoopi distances herslef from the group. Her adrenalin is pumping as her arm is stretched out.

She has distanced herself from the group as we can see in the screen shot of the show above. Whoopi and can no longer stomach looking at Kate as she turns her head away from her. We see the results of the adrenalin  obviously rushing through Whoopi’s system as she raises her hand in the air to release the negative energy she’s feeling. Ther is  no doubt that at this point inthe horrendous interview, I can only imagine that Whoopi must have felt like bitch slapping Kate once and for all if she could.

Whoppi throws up her hands in disgust as she says "I can't deal with this."

Kate a Toxic Bully and control freak Kate finally met someone, not  mjust her own size, but who was a giant next to her. She clearly realized that she was no match for Whoopi who would have none of Kate’s lame  rehearshed and orchestrated PR spin. By keeping it “real ” Whoopi put it all on the table and made this reality star- take a “real” good look at herself .

The segment was  finally ready to come to an end and now Whoopi has to cut to commercial . Woopi’s face says it all. Scrunched in disgust with furrowed brow, Whoopi throws up her up her hands leans hear head to the side as if to get away from Kate’s nonsense and says in a disgusted tone to match the disgusted look on her face, “ I cant even deal with this!”  Finally Whoopi  throws her hands up in disgust to reflect the complete disgust that  she is no doubt  feeling throughout  her entire body.

While there were a few who  criticized Whoopi for acting a bully to a now re-imaged  meek and defenseless appearing Kate. But Whoppi and those who saw through Kate’s new softer look, saw the truth. No makeover is going to erase the image of her abusing her husband and belittling the kids which we all saw for five years.

   And please don’t defend the situation by saying she’s a poor mother with eight children. In the first place she’s not a poor mother. She is a multimillionaire mother with a lot of outside help. And who asked her to undergo fertility treatments that would account for multiple births. She was a nurse. She know all the possibilities- including having six births at once.  And finally, there is a woman on televison with 19 natural childlren- the Duggar family who are loving and kind and not abusive to one another like Kate is to her family. Kate has shown her character over and over again and it;s not pretty. While she defends herself by syaing she is not perfect. That is an understatement! She reflects a meanness that cannot be overlooked. Just ask any of her family memebers from her own parents to her brother to his wife aunt Jody to the countless nannies and helpers she has fired. Even ask her own daughter Maddy who is miserable around her mother as we have all seen.

The image above of not giving one of her thirsty daughters Maddy  a drink of water while she took a sip herself shows her character and her selef absorption.

 I understand that there is talk about Kate getting a talk show with Paula Deen. If she does, rest assured that  I will be watching not as a fan but as a  body language analyst  to see how Kate is progressing. I hope this woman get’s professional psychological help and not just  from Dr. Phil. She needs help from someone who has the time and enegy to devote to her on a regular basis and not just for a media event as she did when she told viewer show she saw Dr. Phil as he came on the View when she co-hosted it.

 Based n my countless hours of observation, I clearly see that Kate is a “Blamer” in the Toxic People scheme of things. She blames the kids, Jon, the papparazzi ( without them thre would be no Jon and Kate) and everyone else, instead of taking a good hard look at herself.

    I am proud of Whoppi because someone got “real” and  finally called Kate on her BS and PR Spin and it worked. No new hairdo or weightloss or new clothing or image makeover  can change the fact that Kate needs to get rid of her internal hate that she has consistently displayed int he media.

Once and for all she needs to put a stop to bashing the father of her kids. He didn’t start all of this- she did. He finally had enough of her and spoke out- honestly and openly. So what if he is dating and experimenting with different women. He is obviously looking for love and affection- something we all saw that he never got from Kate as we watched five years of her verbal emotional and physical abuse.
