Christine Blasey Ford dishonesty zero credibility bombshell not photos, Elizabeth Loftus UC Irvine: “need independent evidence to corroborate your memories”, Bigger story: Democrats & Fake news media used her

polluted vehicle.”…. Thomas Jefferson
Forget the photos of Christine Blasey Ford. We already have a revealing puzzle picture of her life beginning in high school.
She drank and partied underage and deceived her parents.
Ms. Ford needs professional help and as Mr. Kavanagh’s daughter stated “our prayers.” She is dealing with some kind(s) of emotional stress that exists in her mind.
She also must be held accountable.
If a FBI investigation could be used for example to resurrect her social media and any other scrubbed incriminating evidence to prosecute her, then do it.
When this story first was broadcast, I was hesitant to get involved.
I decided to read the Washington Post account and a series of self evident truths emerged.
From Citizen Wells September 20, 2018.
“An issue of honesty was emerging.
Christine Blasey Ford was a well educated psychological professional.
From my exposure to Psych 101 and other research I knew that human memories were extremely fallible.
Ms. Ford was educated on this matter and not being honest in her portrayal of “facts.”
From Psychology Today Mar 12, 2012.
“We tend to think that memories are stored in our brains just as they are in computers. Once registered, the data are put away for safe-keeping and eventual recall. The facts don’t change.
But neuroscientists have shown that each time we remember something, we are reconstructing the event, reassembling it from traces throughout the brain. Psychologists have pointed out that we also suppress memories that are painful or damaging to self-esteem. We could say that, as a result, memory is unreliable. We could also say it is adaptive, reshaping itself to accommodate the new situations we find ourselves facing. Either way, we have to face the fact that it is “flexible.”
For most of us that usually means we recall a rosier past than we actually had, though some of us are tormented by memories of a painful past we can’t shake and that seems to get worse every time we revisit them. But for all of us that means an incomplete past.
Nothing brings this home better than the memories of witnesses in trials, one of the cornerstones of our legal system. All too many people have been put behind bars on the testimony of witnesses, who when challenged by more objective data have been later proved to be misremembering.”
Ms. Ford kept changing her story before and during her testimony. She varied her accounts of the number and makeup of attendees at the gathering in her relating to Feinstein, the polygraph exam and during testimony.
She admits that she cannot recall many details.
No one that she claims attended the gathering, including her friend Leland Keyser, corroborates her story.
The show stopper, the response that reveals her dishonesty was from this testimony:
DURBIN: “Dr. Ford, with what degree of certainty do you believe Brett Kavanaugh assaulted you?”
FORD: “One hundred percent.”
Ford tries to impress the audience with pseudo science:
FORD: “The same way that I’m sure that I’m talking to you right now. It’s — just basic memory functions. And also just the level of norepinephrine and epinephrine in the brain that, sort of, as you know, encodes — that neurotransmitter encodes memories into the hippocampus. And so, the trauma-related experience, then, is kind of locked there, whereas other details kind of drift.”
FEINSTEIN: “So what you are telling us is this could not be a case of mistaken identity?”
FORD: “Absolutely not.”
Ford is well educated. She has no excuse.
Even people with superior memories are not immune to errors.
From the University of California, Irvine, CA, October 22, 2013.
“The recent identification of highly superior autobiographical memory (HSAM) raised the possibility that there may be individuals who are immune to memory distortions.”
“HSAM individuals possess a remarkable autobiographical memory. However, these results show that even they are not immune to episodic memory distortions. Whatever the source of their exceptional autobiographical memory ability is, this does not prevent them from having memory distortions. Although it is always possible that some group might be found to be immune to memory distortions, none has as yet been discovered.”
From Scientific American August 8, 2016.
“What Experts Wish You Knew about False Memories
Just because you’re absolutely confident you remember something accurately doesn’t mean it’s true
Every memory you have ever had is chock-full of errors. I would even go as far as saying that memory is largely an illusion.
This is because our perception of the world is deeply imperfect, our brains only bother to remember a tiny piece of what we actually experience, and every time we remember something we have the potential to change the memory we are accessing.
I often write about the ways in which our memory leads us astray, with a particular focus on ‘false memories.’ False memories are recollections that feel real but are not based on actual experience.
For this particular article I invited a few top memory researchers to comment on what they wish everyone knew about their field.
First up, we have Elizabeth Loftus from the University of California, Irvine, who is one of the founders of the area of false memory research, and is considered one of the most ‘eminent psychologists of the 20thcentury.’
Elizabeth Loftus says you need independent evidence to corroborate your memories.
According to Loftus: “The one take home message that I have tried to convey in my writings, and classes, and in my TED talk is this: Just because someone tells you something with a lot of confidence and detail and emotion, it doesn’t mean it actually happened. You need independent corroboration to know whether you’re dealing with an authentic memory, or something that is a product of some other process.””
I believe that Senator Flake could use some professional help as well.
However, if the FBI must be used, use them in the prosecution of Christine Blasey Ford to make an example.
The much bigger story is the Democrat Party and fake news media lying to the American people and using people for their twisted agenda.
