Netanyahu DOES NOT Make Nazi Salute During UN Speech As Media Suggests
September 28, 2012

To even insinuate in the media that  Israel’s Rime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is making a Nazi gesture during his UN Speech  and to try to connect his gestures  with a vulgar dictator in a devastating era is both ignorant and irresponsible. It  indicates that

a. it is a slow news day so news is being manufactured or

b) someone is out to stir up hatred.

Both Associated Press and Reuters have published photos of Netanyahu indicating that he made a shocking gesture. They have it completely wrong.

Dr. Lillian Glass Bo…

A Nazi salute and Nazi gesture devised by Aldoph Hitler in the 1930’s is where the the right arm  (not the left arm as seen in Netanyahu’s photo)  is extende to at least to eye level,  the hand is straightened the hand so that it is parallel to the arm and the thumb is tucked in as you can see in the photo of Adolph Hilter.

As you can see Netanyau’ s thumb is open and the gesture is not rigid. It was done to express distance

To even insinuate  associating Netanyau with this gesture is ridiculous, especially considering  the fact that many of his family member’s lives were  destroyed  and many were murdered by  Hitler’s regime during the Holocaust .

Dina Lohan Flirts With Dr. Phil Using Manipulative Body Language
September 18, 2012

My hat goes off to Dr. Phil as you can  see what an amazing professional he is in terms of how he handled Dina Lohan during her interviwe on his show. He didn’t let her get away with anything. He set boundaries and he didn’t put up with her

trying to control the situation and acting like a big shot in the TV world . As she asked if the cameramen were rolling and used TV lingo she did so in an attempt to put herself on even footing with Dr. Phil. But it  backfired as Dr. Phil called her on it.  he let her know that it was not his first day in television and that he would handle all the television technical issues.

When she realized that she couldn’t gain control or the upper hand or manipulate Dr. Phil or the interview she resorted to flirting as she raised her shoulder in a coquettish manner and smiled in order to try and manipulate Dr. Phil with her sexuality. But that clearly did not work.

Then Dr. Phil gets serious and asks if she went to college. WE see her in defensive mode body language wise as she covers herself up and holds on to her elbows as if to brace herself for the upcoming  hard hitting questions.

She says she went to NYU and was a dance major as she flits with her hair. She obviously didn’t finish college and her body language reflects charged emotion not he topic. As she was asked about Michael, her ex  she tries to take control by telling the camera men to cut.

She is clueless that this is Dr. Phil’s show and he is the one to say cut not her. He is is control not her.

When the camera crow goes about their business and continues filing she messes us the interview by turing away and holding up her hand indicating that she wants them  to cut out what she said.

Dr. Phil is not having any of this nonsense and must have shot her a serious no nonsense look as she immediately retreats and becomes small as she hunches over and puts her hand on her face as she gives a frustrated look of  upset resignation that she has lost control and it can’t be her way.

Dr. Phil is compassionate as he tells her to take a breath as she complies. Then he resumes questioning about Michael . Instead of answering she says to dr. Phil- I feel were’ on a date.” How inappropriate yet how revealing. She once again resorts to trying to get her way and control over the situation through flirtation.”

Dr. Phil asks her a simple question  about Michael and she turns away and says that;s a loaded question which surprises Dr. Phil as it was a simple question.

Now look what happens when Dr. Phil asks her about when the abuse by Michael started . She inappropriately laughs and turns away crinkles her nose and raises her shoulder  and in a flirtatious manner laughs and says ” On my honeymoon.”This was inappropriate body language for the question which was asked. It was her way of  not wanting to go down that line of questioning.

Dr. Phil probes , What happened on your honeymoon?” She inappropriately turns away  and acts coquettish as she says “He threw a bible at my head” said as if she was asking a question. Her voice also  died off at the end of the statement so you could barely hear her. She inappropriately laughed as she said this. Based on her tone and body language tells I wonder if that is true. I wonder if Michael really thew a bible at her head on their honeymoon. To me it seemed like there were many signals of deception.

Then she repeats herself and says that she can’t believe she is saying this on camera as she looks down.Dr. Phil finds this unbelievable as he repeats what she says “On your honeymoon he throws a bible at your head.”  She should shrugs, looks down and acts flirtatious. When he asks if she thought it wouldn’t happen again, she shakes her head no when answering in the affirmative, looks down and shrugs her shoulders once again which to me may indicate deception on her part.

Dr. Phil asks her about the lowest time in her relation with Michael. Once again in high dramatic fashion she turns away from the camera and says :” Can we stop”, one again trying to manipulate and gain control over the interview. But of course there is no stopping.

She fakes  crying as  she immediately continues on devoid of upset and crying. At this point she carries a prop- a kleenex.

She leaks out yet anther flirtatious signal reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe as she says “you just have to know when to get out” in reference to Michael’s abuse. Her body language does not match the content of what was said. She then smiles, a coquettish smile as she shrugs her shoulders.

Then as Dr. Phil proceeds to ask her anther question pertaining to Michael and his alleged abuse, we she her wiping away a non tear and wiping her non tears from one eye. people crying with real tears from both eyes, not one eye. Then she lets out two fake sniffs as Dr. Phil asks her to speak about the time Michael showed up at her home. her recovery time was too quick, devoid of emotion as she begins to speak.

She then goes into flirting mode agin as she raises her shoulder , gives Dr. Phil direct eye contact as she smiles and in a breathy tone says “Do I really have to talk about that?” Dr. Phil calmly replies ” Do you?”

She then smiles and points at him and says “You’re good” in yet another attempt to gain control over the interview and manipulate.

She then laughs and turns into little girl mode as she says Can I go home now?

Dr. Phil was having none of it. he called her on everything from her denial about Lindsay to what she was on the show. He finally had enough of her not being genuine as he dismissed her and ended the interview.

Watching this over 50 year old flirting to get her way and sticking poses was pathetic and sad . Her denial about Lindsay  was reminiscent of how Lindsay  like Dina is  unable to  take responsibility for her actions and blame it on others.

After watching this very disturbing interview  it is so clear why  Lindsay is the way she is and why she does not have a chance in life unless she unplugs from her  mom manager’s influence and control and gets into some serious therapy to deal with the negative effects her mom has had on her.

Both of her parents leave a lot to be desired. We have all heard from mouthy Michael throughout the years as he has trashed Dina in the press . After watching this interview with Dr. Phil, apparently there may be a lot of truth to what Michael has said about Dina.

You could really see the competive nature she has with Lindsay

Drew Peterson’s Lack of Emotion During Guilty Verdict Typical Sociopath Body Language And Seductive Control Over Women
September 9, 2012

When we look back at the trial of serial killer  who received the death sentence, Ted Bundy, it was reported that he showed no emotion.

When we look back at the reaction of Scott Peterson who was convicted to death for killing his wife and unborn baby, we all witness that he had a mask like facial expression and showed no emotion.

Now we have seen the same thing with Drew Peterson. As soon as the verdict of Guilty was read for his killing his third wife Kathleen Savio, it was reported that Drew Peterson showed no emotion.

The lack of emotion is very typical of a sociopath’s reaction when found guilty. They detach and tune out as though the situation had nothing to do with them.

They may even joke and make light of their situation. It was overheard that  after hearing the guilt verdict Drew Peterson said  “I guess that ruins my Christmas.”

His “joke” clearly reflects that he feels no remorse for what he did.

Peterson  will be spending the rest of his natural life behind bars where like most sociopaths will insist he did nothing wrong and how it was everyone else’s fault he is in prison.

This sociopath will be where he deserves to be so he can no longer seduce, marry,  and harm women who fall prey to him.

Peterson fancies himself  as being irresistible to women.

Like many sociopaths, his seductive personality  lured them in. The fact that he was a policeman and considered to be on the right side of the law, initially  made many women feel safe and secure  But once he got  them into his clutches, it was a different story.He became controlling and  abusive.

Thank goodness 24 year old Christina Raines father put an end to their engagement a few years ago as her father told the press that Peterson was trying to control his daughter and use her as a doormat to watch his kids.

The young woman’s father was her savior as he came to Peterson’s home with police in tow to collect his daughter as they were escorted  to an from he home by several police cars.

Peterson who was  over twice the young woman’s age blamed her father and the press for the breakup as  in typical sociopath form said, “

“This is what the media always does to me,” “As soon as the story got out on Chrissy, I knew it would be a problem for us.

If you listen close enough to what a sociopath says, they will often reveal themselves as  Peterson did in his Nightline interview years back where  Peterson old the reporter, “I’d be wary of me too” when asked about Christina Raines’ family. He also  admitted  when the romance is gone in his relationships, he tends to have flings and move on.

Thankfully, his comments sparked a fight between the couple and Christina Raines returned the engagement ring and a cell phone.

Lucky Christina Raines was 24.  Unlucky Stacey Peterson who is still missing,  was 17 when he began his affair with her while still married to third wife Kathleen Savio. Kathleen was 10 years his junior when he married her.

Most of the women he married or went after were  very young or very  petite. These were women  Peterson  felt he had some control over.

I had the opportunity to  briefly see Peterson when I was at CNN. Peterson was there to do the Larry King show and was in the makeup room where,  according to the makeup artist, he  hit on her. She reported to me that he stared directly into her eyes and wouldn’t break his gaze as he stared directly into her eyes while she applied makeup.

Perhaps Peterson  wanted to see if he could control or even destroy  this curly haired, glasses, wearing,  pierced, very short statured,  woman with colorful and strange tattoos all  over her arms and chest and neck.

The alleged eye stare was no doubt  his test to see if he could assert any control over  this odd looking woman.

Most likely Peterson has played this staring game with many other women. Those who , blink, turn away or  those whom he senses are intimidated  by his stare are the ones , if circumstances allowed,  he  no doubt took to the next level of seduction.

Even though Peterson will live out his years behind bars, don’t be surprised if you hear that Peterson has landed another relationship.

Unfortunately there are emotionally disturbed women out there who are attracted to men behind bars and who feel empowered by defending them.  They have the illusion  the criminal  would never do any harm to them because they are so special and they have control over the situation.. That is  only true  to an extent that the perpetrator is behind bars.

But little do they realize that  sociopaths like Peterson will still be the ones in control as he plays mind games with them and most likely engaging  in his familiar  manipulation and emotional abuse,  so typical of a sociopath.

Mitt Romney’s Passionate Body Language at The Republican Convention
September 1, 2012

 

Those of you who regularly read my blogs know that  unlike many of my body language colleages, I am not  politically motivated and not herald any party line. I merely report my observations.

At the Republican Convention,  Mitt Romney gave the speech of his life. We have never before seen Mitt Romney this articulate, passionate, enthusiastic, compassionate, emotional or clearer in his message.

It was not a message of hate towards his opponent. In fact he said he wished Obama hadn’t failed. There was no animosity towards Obama in his tones.

Usually Romney speaks in a boring monotone that tends to trail off at the end. But that was not the case as he spoke at the convention. He was the complete opposite with inflected tones where there was an ebb and flow to his voice. He was easy to listen to. He was not boring. In fact he was captivating as his voice went from soft to loud and higher to lower pitch. He paused significantly to make key points.

There was an enthusiasm and a passion  as he discussed what he would do if he was elected President as he outlined his five step program and said he would create 12 million new jobs.

We saw a side of him that we never saw before. On the campaign trail Romney has come across as weak and clinical in his discussions of what American’s want.

But in this speech, he came across as  caring and  compassionate. For the first time really spoke to the people in a genuine and casual manner.

He was also emotional and is eyes welled up and there was a crack in his voice s he spoke of his dad and of his mother. One got the sense  that he really loved and missed his  now deceased parents. One also got the sense of how big an influence his mother was in his life as he sais she would be proud of all the Republican women in politics.

His tone turned to that of cheerleader as he loudly relayed that his wife, even though she was a housewife to his five kids could have done anything in her life.

Romney really let the public in as he told us about himself in a very genuine, folksy, humble way

 The best thing I appreciated throughout his speech was that he was genuine with his emotions and with his body language.

 

There is nothing that irks me more than to see a politician doing the phony and lame pressing  of their thumb against their index and pointer finger when they speak to an audience and want to point.

In fact Paul Ryan did it the night before Romney spoke and it was annoying.

Back in the Kennedy era, JFK was very conscious of image and public perception so he hired a speech coach to help him prepare for all of his public appearances, many of which were televised.That speech coach came up with that lame gesture which has turned up with every President except Johnson like a bad penny.

 

George Bush (Sr. and Jr. did it) Clinton did it, and Obama does it.

It is annoying and contrived and is  apassive aggressive gesture. The President  and other politicians want to point to get their emotion across , yet  they waters it down with the lame political gesture.

But in his speech,  Romney did not do the phony gesture. At the end of his speech he pointed. That  was genuine emotion . In fact, he was the only politician I have ever seen who actually pointed to the audience whereby he expressed his true feelings and passion and was refreshing to see.

Romney has  clearly shown  through his performance at the Republican Convention that he is indeed  a formidable candidate that exudes warmth and a leadership presence. Like Obama, he is also likable candidate based on how he came across.At least they are on the same level playing field from a communication standpoint.

Now Romney  needs to continue using that warm and genuine and inflected tone filled with emotion and enthusiasm from now on as he continues his campaign against Obama  which will help him  attract additional voters.
