Donald Trump Shows Most Confident Body Language of All Candidates

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.13.54 AM

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.13.54 AMThere is no question  the candidate who showed the most self confidence  through his body language during the debates was

Donald Trump. He  was the candidate who appeared to be the most at ease even when difficult questions were thrown his way.

As you can see in this photo he is the only candidate leaning forward which indicated his eagerness and readiness.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.11.22 AMHe often showed the palms of his hands which is an open gesture and showed he had nothing to hide.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.07.17 AM

His gestures were fluid  which reflected his ease on the stage. He did not make any of the mechanical gestures which

many of the politicians made where the thumb and the index finger was pinched. Instead he made gestures which matched

his emotions and what he was saying.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.06.56 AMHis gestures were broad and wide which indicated his confidence and his command of the stage.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.07.27 AMHis thumbs up gesture reflected his self confidence and confidence in what he was saying and appeared to be the only

candidate who did this.

Regarding his response to the Megan Kelly question, he handled it well.  While there is no dispute that a  question about  how

Trump feels about women should have been asked, the way in which it was asked was sneaky and inappropriate in my view.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.32.42 AM

First Megyn starts the question off with a very pleasant face as she looks directly at trump and says One of the things people love about you is that you speak your mind and you don’t use a politician’s filter. ”

Then she says however it is not without it’s downsides particularly when it comes to women. You’ve called women fat pigs, slobs, and disgusting animals.”

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.36.46 AM

Trump then interrupts  with stating “Only Rosie O’Donnell” which received a roaring applause from the crowd. And by the way Rose O’Donnell was the one who began the fight with Donald Trump with her name calling and  disparaging remarks about his physical appearance. Trump in turn, fought back and mirrored her Toxic name calling.Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.41.21 AM

Megyn Kelly then recounts that Trump said to a Celebrity Apprentice contestant  “It would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees” In the first place. the contestant  was Brande Roderick who can’t recall this ever being said to her and strongly defends Trump on this matter. ”

Megyn then appears to sneer at Trump as she looks directly at him with narrowed eyes as you can see in this photo above and says in an admonishing tone”  Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?” She doesn’t ask :what do you have to say about this? Instead she attacks his temperament. When Trump subsequently said there was “Blood in her eyes” what he was saying  was that she was out for blood and it showed in her eyes. We saw her narrowed eyes on screen, but trump saw her piercing eyes glaring  directly at him while she asked the question, so clearly he saw a lot more of the negative emotion coming from Megan than the viewer watching the debate.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.49.34 AM

Trump was visibly disturbed about her question as he purses his lips and tightens his jaw in anger. Then Megyn in essence associates him with the “War on Women.”  Trumps answer was that he has no time to be politically correct  and then says how the country has no time  to be politically correct as he

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.58.13 AM

made karate chop like gestures to emphasize his point which also reflected his anger and annoyance at the question.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 12.58.41 AM

He then shows his palms in an open gesture as he explains that oftentimes what he says is fun and kidding and we have a good time.  He then goes on to let Megyn know that he has been nice to her even though she has treated him not so nice and that he said he could not be so nice to her  based on the way she has treated him. He also reached out and said he was sorry that she felt that way.

Then after  the debate, Trump was true to his word and was not so nice to Megyn as she let everyone know that she had blood coming out of her eyes and had other disparaging things to say about her.

One thing about  about Donald Trump which everyone  should know from reading his book The Art of the Deal, is that  his philosophy is that if someone hits you hard, you hit them back harder. And he did that in business  which was  one of the key;s to his success and has been doing it with everyone who attacks him, including Megyn Kelly.

And once again to refresh everyone’s memory  as I have said throughout my blogs, I am not a political person and have no agenda here as I merely report what I observe from a body language and communication standpoint.

Princess Diana’s Legacy Lives on in William’s Public Kiss to Baby George

  • Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.05.12 PM

Prince William’s public kiss to his son, future King George, in front of the hospital where George’s sister was born was touching. The little king in training was beyond adorable as he waved to his future subjects in the UK. Proud pappa William rewarded his precious son with a loving kiss.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.02.10 PMLittle George will be full of love when he grows up as he has been kissed and treated with open affection since his birth. Prince William is a loving father who can freely display his affection to all of his children including his animal children.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.51.55 PM

This is because as a baby he was given the same affection by his mother, the late Princess Diana.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.01.27 PM

Her physical affection towards  both of her sons was reciprocated  as they feel so physically comfortable around her  with William’s arms around her neck and Harry nuzzling into her in the photo on the right. In the next photo we see as we see with Prince Harry kissing his mom. Until Diana entered the Royal family, one never saw public displays of kissing. However one did see affection displayed towards past royals in a more formal way.

  • Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.52.27 PMScreen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.03.14 PM
  • Prince Charles also showed love towards WIlliam as he seemed to be in awe of his son.  You can see his genuine smile as the baby sits comfortably in Charle’s lap.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 2.05.47 PM

As the William and Harry grew older you could really see Charles’ genuine affection for the boys and vice versa as depicted in this photo below.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 2.05.02 PM

Charles’  parents did not show him physical affection via kisses (at least publicly) as it wasn’t done then. It was not considered proper royal behavior to do so. The only thing Queen Elizabeth did get away with at least publicly was allowing  baby Charles to grab on to her finger.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 12.59.48 PM Among the Royals, things were more formal and one didn’t kiss in pubic. The  Queen, however  did show her affection by placing her hand on the  back of Baby Charles  and her cheek on his little head, but it was a posed shot as she looks away from the baby and not towards the baby.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.25.36 PM

While the Queen was in a formal pose  and not physically affectionate with Baby Charles, her genuine smile says it all that she adores him as her body gravitates and leans in towards him. It seems she is doing all she can to contain herself for the public photo.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.30.46 PM.

But she can’t resist and takes the baby closer to her as she smiles adoringly at Charles.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.30.29 PM

As a baby Queen Elizabeth was  also given a tremendous amount of love and affection by her own parents as you can see in the photos below.

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.31.17 PMScreen Shot 2015-05-03 at 1.31.38 PM

The Queen’s mother adored her as she leans into the little future Queen and  delicately touches her little arm. Elizabeth’s body sinks into her mother as she looks like one very happy smiling baby. Queen Elizabeth’s father King George adored his daughter as she sits on his lap and he holds her lovingly. The expression on his face is priceless as it reflects a proud father who would be comfortable holding her all day.

This generational photo analysis indicates that the future King George and his little  newborn Princess not only have  legacy of coming from royal blood, but they share the legacy of  coming from parents, grandparent’s, great-grandparents, and great great parents where there was considerable love being passed down from generation to generation.

Mayor of Baltimore Shows Many Signals of Deception As She Denies She Said She Gave Rioters “Space to Destroy”

The mayor of Baltimore,Stephanie Rawlings-Blake,  showed many signals of deception . These includes a lot of um um uh’s in her speech pattern, her monotone robotic voice and defensive tone  as she said to reporters on tape that  she NEVER EVER   said she gave rioters the space to destroy.

When people get really defensive and show anger in their face and speak in hyper articulated speech, it usually means they are not telling the truth. This is exactly what the mayor did when she told a flock of reporters that she Never (emphasized the word never as though she ‘dost protest too much’) As you can see below she looks down and away as she says this which also indicates deception. Also look at her lower jaw extended in anger. It is a facially defensive pose that is often associated with deception, which is the case in this context.

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 6.51.17 PM

It is clear that the mayor lied because we all heard her at a presser say she gave people space to destroy.

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 6.58.32 PMShe says that her words should not be twisted as she immediately turns away from reporters and clenches her jaw in anger. Perhaps she is angry at herself for saying what she did. When people are honest about what they have said, they continue to look directly at you in your direction. They do not turn away.
We also gave space to those who wished to destroy as well”  was said by the mayor earlier. AS she made this statement you she her exposed palms of her hands. When people’s hands show exposed palms, they are being honest

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 7.01.08 PMSo the Mayor was honest when she made that statement. But then she denies she made that statement when confronted by the press.

When asked by the press if she regretted saying what she said, she began her answer with the mored “Listen!” This is a hostile approach that people use when they lie. Remember when former President Clinton said :You listen to me…. I din not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky…” Use of the world Listen at the beginning of a sentence is often a huge red flag leading to deception.

Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 7.06.05 PM

She continues with facial hostility as she defends herself by saying that she had a right to protect people’s right to protest. When people are that defensive and go off on a tangent as she has done by talking about rights to protest when the issue involves giving people space to destroy the city, it indicates deception.

While we have seen many politicians lie and backtrack on what they said, this a clear case of a mayor  lying about what she said as evidenced verbally, facially, and body language wise. I cannot imagine this mayor winning any future elections after she was caught redhanded or shall I say red-faced in embarrassment and lied about it.

Bruce Jenner Desperately Needs Feminizing Voice, Speech and Body Language Coaching To Complete His Male to Female Transition

Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 10.07.57 AM

In making his transition from male to female,  Bruce Jenner has put a lot of effort into his skin with  injectable  lip and face fillers botox, surgically minimizing his adam’s apple, breast enhancement, and many other physical changes. But the one important change that he has neglected is the sound of his voice, the content of his speech, and adopting a more feminized body language

Having taught countless transgender clients in my practice who went from female to male how to sound like a man and  male to to male transgender clients how to sound like a woman I would love to be the one to help Bruce make these changes so that he could feel more secure and confident in his new gender role. In fact I want to personally reach out to Bruce through this blog to let him know that I can help him with establishing a more feminine voice, speech patterns, as well as a more female  body language .

After all, if I could help Dustin Hoffman sound like a woman for his Dorothy character in his award winning performance of “Tootsie”  I can definitely help Bruce Jenner.


Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 10.19.34 AM

After it  was publicly known that I was the one who helped  Dustin to sound like a woman, transgender clients from all over the country sought out my services to help them make that vocal and body language transition which would help cement their identity in the opposite sex and allow others to perceive them as more feminine (or masculine for those seeking a female to male  transition).

My experience  in helping the  transgender population began when I was doing my Master’s Degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. At the time the University of Michigan Medical Center was one of the few places in the world where people came for gender reassignment surgery. So in order to assist these patients with their total image, they were often sent to the University of Michigan Speech Clinic.

Unbeknownst to me, I was assigned one such patient- a lovely woman with long dark hair and exotic features. My first task was to do a complete speech and vocal analysis of this woman. I wrote up a very detailed report for my professor and mentor, Dr. H. Harlan Bloomer about the woman’s low pitched voice, her pitch range, and diction and how she presented herself. Because the patient had such a  limited pitch range and a low voice, I wrote up a differential diagnosis in her report  that she may be suffering from vocal cord  trauma or may have some vocal cord growths which may attribute to her vocal issues. While Dr. Bloomer said he was impressed with the detailed analysis of my report, he said I missed something very crucial. She was actually a “he”.

I must say that I was surprised as I had never known anything like this.Dr. Bloomer said that my task was to make her sound like a woman. I immediately went to the Medical Library to find out all I could about how to do that, but there were no books or articles on the topic. There was an obscure book that was written by a Harvard linguistics Professor  but it was very academic and didn’t tell what to do. So I tried to figure things out by the seat of my pants and at the end of our six week therapy sessions, my client sounded like a woman and very few could detect that she had been or sounded like a man months earlier. Because of my success with this client, I was the one who was given all of the transgender patients who needed to change their voice and speech  patterns to match their new sexual identity.

After graduating from Michigan and getting my doctorate at the University of Minnesota where my focus was now in the area of medical genetics and psychosocial aspects of speech, voice, and cosmetic appearance in patients with cranial facial deformities, I then went to UCLA School of Medicine and  did a post doctoral fellowship, doing  research in the area of birth defects and associated speech and voice disorders in the area of Medical Genetics. It was there that I really was able to hone my diagnostic skills in assessing people from head to toe, which was instrumental in my present incarnation as a voice and body language expert.

One evening, I took a break  from my post-doctorate studies and my research and accepted an invitation to my first Hollywood party. A far cry from the world of academia where I spent so such time, it was so was so exciting  and refreshing to me to see all of these glamorous and beautiful people who had so much to say about themselves, telling me about all the acting roles they got, and the next movie I would see them in. Then  it came  my turn to share what I did. I also shared my experience with them of working with transgender clients when I was in graduate school. A film producer overheard what I said and asked me for my card. I didn’t have a card back then so I wrote my number down a on a piece of paper.

A few days later, I got a call from a person whom I didn’t know who told me he was a director and that his friend at the party I attended gave him my number. The director then told me there was someone he wanted me to meet to help him sound like a woman and that I had to come to an address in Westwood (not too far from UCLA) the next day at the specified time. But there was one important thing I had to know- that I couldn’t tell anyone where I was going and what I was doing. As a naive 25 year old I enthusiastically agreed to it and showed up the next afternoon. As I walked up the long winding stairway to the front door, I began to feel a bit anxious and wondered what I got myself into. I knocked on the door and who should appear? None other than Dustin Hoffman. In the weeks and months that followed I taught Dustin everything I possibly knew about gender differences in communication. I shared with him everything I learned from working with the transgender clients at the University of Michigan.

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 12.21.53 PM

Years later I wrote a best selling book about gender differences in communication called He Says She Says, Closing the Communication Gap Between the Sexes and went on the speaking circuit where I spoke to thousands of people on the topic. I also did the TV talk show circuit on the topic. Understanding how differently men and woman communicated  with one another helped many couples learn to better relate to one another. It also helped  avoid many misunderstanding in the workplace where men and woman  now learned the nuances of communication with the opposite sex.

More business women learned how they needed to get to the point quicker, and not answer a question with a question or go up at the end of sentences, while more businessmen learned that they needed to use less command terms and take up less physical space when dealing with women. In fact there were 103 differences that men and women needed to be aware of to help them better communicate with one another.

Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 10.08.30 AM

So back to Bruce Jenner.  Having worked with so many transgender clients,  I truly feel for Bruce. I know the emotional pain these clients have been in all of their lives. I know how they have been teased and emotionally abused. I know how many of their friends and relatives will never speak to them again when they go through the transition. I also know the very dark side of this transition process and that is that 60 percent of those who undergo the transition become so depressed afterwards that they  commit suicide. It is shocking and it is scary as they find that life in their new gender doesn’t cure all of their past issues and in fact, may create more issues than they had before.

Bruce may be one of the lucky ones in that he seems to have a good family support system with his mother and  two sons for sure and perhaps  step daughter Khloe.It seems that his younger daughters with Kris, Kylie and Kendall  are having a hard time with it. Kyle’s acting out and dating a 25 year old when she is 17 may have something to do with her ambivalence towards Bruce. The last thing Bruce needs now as he makes his transition is badmouthing from Kris. This could play havoc on his psyche especially now that he is on hormone therapy. That is why he needs to cut ALL ties with her and hire a great PR person to defect any poison PR arrows Kris may shoot at him in the media. Kris may use this opportunity to play the victim- that she had no idea about his desire to become a woman. Know that no one can live with someone for 20 something years and do business with them and share intimate moments with the person and not know something. This is not about Kris. It is about Bruce and Bruce’s PR minions need to keep making that very clear.

Bruce’s role in the recent traffic collision where his car hit a woman who was killed must also be weighing heavily on his mind. The fact that he is coming out in front of millions of people is also a Herculean task. Not everyone will embrace him. People will be mean as they have been already. With some, Bruce’s transition, threatens their masculinity and angers them for what he did.Many looked up to Bruce as a great athlete and Olympic heros.They still may want to see him this way and now when they see him looking like a woman and wearing women’s clothing, it upsets their psyche. Many will become angry because they don’t want to see him this way. Many religious people will think what Bruce did was wrong and will let him know about it. Many will call him a freak,

But Bruce is not a freak. He was feeling like he was in the wrong body for his entire life as he admitted. Perhaps that was why he could endure the punishing workouts that allowed him to become an Olympian. Perhaps he so wanted to be be seen as masculine at the time that he overcompensated. No matter what, Bruce is at a very crucial time in his life. He needs a lot of emotional support and a lot of strength.

I am here to support Bruce through my skill set as I am reaching out to him with the intention of helping him to have more confidence and credibility in his voice, speech patterns,and body language as he ventures out in the world as a woman.

Heather Mack Cocky, Entitled, Diva Body Language After 10 Year Sentence for Mother’s Murder

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 10.26.36 AM

Heather Mack,the troubled and entitled Chicago teen who constantly fought with her mother to the point that police were called countless times. She was taken on a  vacation to Bali by her wealthy socialite mother, Sheila von Wies Mack in order for the two to to bond and spend quality time together. But rebellious Heather wanted no part of it, So she invited her boyfriend Tommy Schaefer to join them in Bali, much to her mothers dislike.

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 10.00.47 AM

When checkout time came around, Sheila refused to pay for the boyfriends hotel bill which angered him. Angrily, he  hit her with an object, killing, dismembering her body and stuffing it into a suitcase. Pregnant  Heather and her boyfriend then  fled to a nearby resort and planned to board a plane the next day for the US but they were caught and taken to jail. In jail Heather gave birth to a baby girl. The couple has finally been sentenced- Heather for 10 years and her boyfriend for 18 years.

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 10.00.05 AM

Heather showed no remorse for her mothers death and celebrated by guzzling smuggled in alcohol from a plastic bag. As you can see from her actions and body language she is loving her life in Kerabokan Prison in Indonesia. She is acting like a star and loving the attention lavished upon her by the press.

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 9.36.27 AM

She mugs for the camera and jokes with the press and calls them by name- Ari, Osha, etc. She beckons them to come closer to her cell to get a better photo and even scolds them for publishing what she considers unattractive photos of herself in the press.She mugs for them as you can see in the above photo.

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 10.00.28 AM

Her biggest complaint about the sentencing was that her boyfiend will have to be in prison for 8 more years when she is released and she is not happy about that. In fact, she calls it unfair. She says that he daughter needs to have her father around when she is a young girl and is upset about that. She is clearly more upset about that than she is about her mother being  dead and gone forever.

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 10.06.18 AM Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 10.06.29 AM

Meanwhile, Tommy’s body language after his sentencing of 18 years was revealead by his gestures in  angrily swatting away reporters and in shooting them an obscene gesture with his middle finger. His anger is also revealed in his tight muscles around his lips and in his biting his lower lip.

In reality,  these two spoiled and entitled creatures have nothing to be angry about. They should both be jumping for joy. If their crime would have happened in the US they would have received life or the death sentence. They also could have received a death sentence by firing squad in Indonesia but their lives were spared according to the press because they were the parents of a newborn baby.

Screen Shot 2015-04-21 at 9.59.29 AM

At first it was reported that Heather was awkward with the baby but now motherhood has kicked in and her  maternal instincts seem to have taken over. She appears to be affectionate towards the infant as she comforts the baby is often seen rocking it. Maybe this is the silver lining that has come out of such a dark situation. According to  Kerobokan prison officials,  she will be allowed to keep the baby with her for a period of six months. After that the baby will be with relatives. The only hting is that there are no relatives on her side, so perhaps Tommy’s parents will care for the baby. On the other hand, perhaps a kindly Indonesian family will take care of the baby and bring the baby to see her mother for regular visits. Heather could certianly afford to do this as she inherited the millions of dollars left by her now deceased parents.

Since Heather has money, life in Kerobokan prison will be easy for her. Instead of the traditional squat toilet she will be able to have a western style sit down toilet.  She will be able to order in food from the outside and will receive top dental and medical care. She will have her own quarters with clean linens and will be allowed to freely roam the premises at her liesure . She can watch all the TV she likes and see the latest DVD’s which are regularly brought in by volunteer workers.  If she wants to do so, she can get a college education via correspondence course, If she was smart, she should look into that so when she comes out of prison in 10 years she could begin a  new life with a new  set of skills due to her education. She will be able to have a cell phone and use the computer to her heart’s desire.

Tommy may have it even better  than Heather in prison as he too will have all of these things in Kerobokan Prison but he will have tennis courts and tennis matches where he can participate. He can help raise dogs in the prisoner assistance dog program they have, he can continue his education as he too as complete access to computers and cell phones. He and header can speaker 24 7 id they like. They can video chat and text one another at will.

Since the emphasis at the prison is rehabilitation, they have sewing, silversmithing,reflexology, and Norwegian philosophy classes, and  hairdressing and barber skill training. They can also continue with a formal education at any University of their choosing that offers an online degree or a correspondence type of program. They can also get all of the psychological counseling they want as there is regular counseling by visiting psychologists. So Heather an work out her mother and her mental issues, while Tommy can work out his anger issues.

The whole situation is so terribly sad.  At 62, Shelia von Wies Mack is dead after close to two decades of struggling with her very difficult daughter. May she now rest in peace and may Heather treat her own daughter a lot better than she treated her mother.

Jodi Arias Musgshot Shows She’s Scared As Reality Finally Sets In

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 11.11.26 PMGone is the smug smile, the cockiness and the “I know I am going to eventually be a free woman” attitude.  Present is the fear based on her  tear glistened eyes, flat mid-face, pallid skin tone,  and  the tight muscle tension in her  lower jaw. Her autonomic nervous  system has taken over and gone into high gear. This is not the face of the Jodi we have come to know over the past seven years.It is a Jodi that just had the most severe reality check of her life- that she can no longer manipulate people or the system and that she will only leave prison in a pine box.

While she knew she would get punished for what she did to Travis,  there is no doubt that she thought she would be getting out in 25 years or less. As  this reality settles into her mind and soul, the once happy go lucky  Jodi with her dangerously  sickening sweet sing song voice will become more and more depressed as the drawn out long days stare her in the face.  When you do see photos of Jodi on the coming years, she may not look recognizable to you as her facial muscles will morph into giving her an whole different look and it will not be for the better.

In Perryville no one will be putting up with her shenanigans. Her  smug ” I am smarter  and better than you” arrogance will not do her any favors in prison among the other inmates.

Jodi is not a likable person and didn’t have many friends in life until she joined the Mormon church and then for the first time in her life,  found a whole new social life because of Travis.

While her new Mormon friends embraced her initially, they soon became wary of her. They felt something was off with her and ended up not liking her. Jodi did not learn how to make friends  and influence people throughout  her life. While she learned to manipulate, seduce, and blame others, she never learned how to genuinely connect with others. Her lack of social skills will not put her in good standing in prison. In fact, it will make her a moving target of hate from her fellow inmates.

So don’t be surprised if down the road,  you hear that Jodi has been involved in some type of attack or assault by fellow inmates. This is not wishful thinking. Jodi just happens to be a good candidate for being assaulted due to her cocky arrogance and the ” I’m better than you” air she gives off.

Jodi Arias’ Defiant Voice and Body Language During Sentencing Trial As She Sadistically Torment’s Travi’s Family

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 6.02.03 AMScreen Shot 2015-04-14 at 6.41.28 AM


Jodi Arias’ tone of voice and her body language were defiant up until the end.When she states her case in her defiant overly self confident and arrogant tone, you see her shoulders straight as she has her head up and stands erect. But then after the verdict is read and she suddenly realizes she will never get out of prison alive and be a free woman, her body language demeanor dramatically changes, with her  being next to tears, slouched posture, and head forward with neck extended in  resignation.

It shows that Jodi actually thought she would manipulate the judge during her final statements and have the judge give her 25 years so that she would be a free woman by the time she was in her 50’s.

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 6.17.35 AM

As the sentence was being  handed down, Jodi did not move as Judge Steve’s spoke . She stood there as  stiff as a board which indicates to me that she was in shock at the judge’s decision and that she actually believed the judge would grant her eventual freedom.

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 6.41.52 AM

But then Jodi began to crack. as we can see from her body language and her  facial expression right after she processed that she didn’t get what she wanted and would never smell freedom again. Her shoulders began to slunch forward in resignation and submissiveness as the reality of her situation was setting in. There was also severe tension around her jaw and lip area as though she wanted to cry.

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 6.46.39 AM

Then we see the tension in her lower facial  muscles as they bulge out, her nose becomes red, her eyebrows raise raise and forehead crinkle and eyes water as shown in  the photo above. Jodi is crying. Although she is trying to hold it together for her image, the media and the the public not seeing her natural reaction, she cannot do so. He body belies her true feelings of anger and frustration that she did not get what she wanted from the sentencing- being a free woman after a period of time.

But let’s go back to what happened before Judge Steven’s sentenced her and look at her mother’s behavior.

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 5.38.04 AM

When we heard Jodi Aria’s mother speak at the  sentencing trial, we also heard defiance in her voice as well as she spoke. She said that her daughter was wrongly incarcerated as she said ”  seven years ago she was incarcerated because  she wanted to live”   What??? No, Mrs. Aria, your daughter was incarcerated because she macerated  her lover’s body and shot him in the head as he bled to death in agony in a shower.   Next she stated. “they can cage her, they can strip her of her rights but they can  never take away her beautiful soul.”  Beautiful soul ? Mrs. Arias, a  beautiful soul is not someone who did what she did to Travis  with 27 stab wounds and a bullet to the head  as well as  all of the lying  and manipulating as we saw her do often. After hearing Mrs. Arias finally  speak, we not only see how she is in clear denial. We get a glimpse as to why Jodi may have turned out the way she did. No doubt her mother was in denial about Jodi her entire life and refused to see Jodi’s abberant behaviors.

The fact that Arias’ mother smiled as she walked up in front of Judge Stevens to speak on her daughter’s behalf was chilling and validates how much in denial she appears to be in.

When Jodi Arias finally spoke at her sentencing  hearing the tone of her voice was cold, defiant. She managed to take one last sadistic stab in tormenting at Travis and his family so they can never have any peace of mind. When prosecutor Juan Martinez said that Travis’ family hoped that he was unconscious when Jodi took that knife to him for the last time, Jodi responded to Martinez’ statesment in graphic detail. She said ” I remember the last time when the knife went into Travi’s throat and he was conscious.”

That  statement says it all about who Jodi Arias is- a sadistic, mean, hateful  creature with no remorse who’s comment was designed  to torture the family who had hoped their brother  died with no pain at the end. But Jodi made sure that they knew that he was in pain and was not unconscious.

She then paused for several seconds, took a deep breath where she raised her shoulders ( a body signal of deception) and went on to say ” He still tried to attack me.” Considering the physical shape Travis was  in at the time, it is highly doubtful that he was trying to attack her at that moment. She then goes on to say, It was I who was trying to get away, not Travis.” She then says I never wanted it to be that way Judge…. ” She doesn’t say your honor or Judge Stevens. Instead she calls her judge which is another clear act of the passive aggressive defiance on Arias’ part.

When she said she was remorseful for the enormous pain she caused people who loved Travis.  it was said in a matter of fact monotone voice devoid of emotion. After what she said about Travis being conscious and  in essence feeling the pain at the time of his murder, there was no remorse on her part at all.

As she makes this incredulous statement, look at what Judge Steven’s is doing. The judge cocks her head in disbelief which is an indicator that she is well aware that Jodi is feeling no remorse for her brutal actions.

After hearing the coldness in Aria’s voice, her lack of remorse and her meanness and  cruel sadistic actions, she should not be allowed to live. The lone juror who voted that she not be put to death did not show up to court while all other 11 jurors showed up wearing blue in support of Travis; family as they sat in their old seats in the jury box That was telling and very moving. The dissenting juror was as cowardly and sadistic as Jodi Arias by not showing up and representing her decision.

But unknowingly the one dissenting  juror, thinking she was doing Jodi a huge service by sparing her life, will no doubt have turned out to do Jodi no favor at all. Jodi will suffer tremendously.


 In the courtroom, immediately  after the sentencing one of Travis’ sisters yelled “burn in hell” This may be exactly what will happen to Jodi as she now makes her way to her new home of 86 square feet

with a view from Jodi’s cell looking like this.

.Past prisoners have found Jodi’s new home a living hell.The heat alone and being put out in metal cages when the hot Arizona sun is blistering down upon them is a hell in itself.

But Jodi will be allowed education classes and counseling sessions. No doubt she will get attention from the media at the various anniversaries  of her sentencing. And she will be allowed to interact with other prisoners where she has the opportunity to try her skills at manipulating them behind bars.  But she will often meet her match as there are many Jodi Aria’s types which will surround her and try their hand at manipulating her.

Because Jodi is so high profile it is a real possibility that another lifer with zero to lose who is sick of the whole process may try to kill Jodi for the notoriety. Others may want to mess hr up and may be willing to face the consequences. One thing is for sure, her arrogance and” I’m better and smarter than you”  attitude  along with her  perceived “high falootin'” vocabulary  and hyper articulation of her words will not be well received.

Based ont he way Jodi has presented herself thus far, she will not do well in prison, especiallyw hen it comes to interacting with others. As Travis’ sister wished, Jodi will rot in hell behind bars.

Now that she has been sentenced, there will of course be appeals.  But it is my view that no one mention this fame seeing sociopath again- that no specials or anniversary  shows be made to boost television ratings  and magazine sales. There is NOTHING more that can be said about Jodi unless she dies behind bars. We have heard it all – all her lies and all her psychopathology.  Her celebrity infamy needs to end now.

Jodi Arias was an attractive white young female who murdered an ex  boyfriend ,who in essence rejected her but still continued to have sex with her.  She killed him out of  anger and revenge and then claimed she had nothing to do with it. She got caught, tried, sentenced and will now be put away for her crime for the rest of  her life. This type of thing is not new and has happened many times to many people all  around the world.

The perpetrator  is punished, never to be thought of again. But it is the media that has made Jodi Arias into a star from the sensationalism of  48 hours to  other shows. The media  needs to stop and not revisit this mental case and  we need to stop watching and paying attention to Jodi and her soon to be tortured life behind bars.
