This is political hypocrisy at it’s finest. Right after Nancy Pelosi’s accusations against Republicans over Jeff Sessions’ alleged meetings with the Russian ambassador, she showed some revealing body language which shows there is clearly more than meets the eye as far as Nancy Pelosi is concerned as she did the same the same thing as Sessions when she was asked a similar question. Since the body doesn’t’ lie, Pelosi’s body language says it all and it looks to me like she was taken aback. Does she herself have something to hide?
Politico reporter Jake Sherman directly asked Pelosi “You’ve been in Congress a little bit and you’re in leadership, have you ever met with the Russian ambassador?’
Pelosi was shocked! this was revealed in her immediate awkward silence which took much longer than a person who had nothing to hide answering the question. Pelosi phumfered “Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” before she quickly tried to change the subject and move on. When you put the word “no” at the end of a sentence, there is often trouble brewing. When you are being open and forthright you say No at the beginning of the sentence and then go on to explain. So immediately it put a huge red flag up for me.
Thne she explains herself. When you give an open honest answer you don’t explain and sound defensive and have a catch in your tone. Then Sherman asked “Is it normal to meet with ambassadors?” and her reply was “Yeah,” She did not says “yes it certainly is, or yes or yes it is. She blurted out a yeah.
Her body language also seemed to me to scream many signals of deception.
First she shows the back of her hand which is the first bad signal.It shows she is shocked at the question as she looks away.
Then she holds up her finger as to admonish and subconsciously and angrily say, “don’t ask me this question”. She doesn’t even look at Sherman but give him an askance glance which illustrates anger.
Then she closes her eyes as if not to deal with the question- to shut it out literally. She also reaches for her throat which is the most vulnerable part of your body. It is a form of self protection and means she is feeling really vulnerable at this question being thrown at her.
No here she is super angry as she makes a karate chop gesture as you can see the movement of her hand which is caught in the photo.She also looks away as she can’t even face the interviewer which is another bad sign. In essence her karate chop gestures says “cut it off.”
She is still showing the back of her hand and not the palms which is yet another red flag signal to me. She also does not look at the interviwers which is yet another signal red flag moment.
Now this is a very serious moment for me red flag wise as she shows how vulnerable she is now that she in essence got busted. She reaches for her vulnerable area- her throat region.
Now her facial expression really shows how angry and upset she is that she got “caught with her pants down” so to speak. She is no dummy when it comes to the game of politics and she knows the repercussions of this question and her mind is spinning at 100 miles per hours to see how she can now spin her answer to look good to the public. The hand on the throat which remains is now even more telling when matched with her upset facial expression.
Now she can no longer face her interviewers and shuts down with closed eyes and cups her hand over her vulnerable throat area into a fist indicating she wants to shut out what just happened and she is angry about it as revealed by the fist like posturing of her hand.
So there you have it- one politician call the kettle black when her pot is just as black. This my fans and friends and readers is why I detest politics. It is full of these lies, these games, and this hypocrisy which we have just seen. It is why I support no party over the other and no candidate over the other. It is why I am impartial and neuutral because they both end up doing and saying the same thing at one time or another. So it is a waste of time to keep it all straight as far as I am concerned.
Politics is a game as we just saw and it is a very serious and dangerous game. It is about besmirching one to others and vice versa. So if you ever dare to accuse me of being partisan or representing one candidate over another I will refer you to this Pelosi blog I just did.
