"Recovered Memories," McMartin Style, All Over Again: A "Christine M. Blasey" Co-Wrote a Paper on How to Conduct Self-Hypnosis to Recover Memories and "Create Artificial Situations"

Keep in mind, Blasey (now Ford) was about the right age to have gotten swept up in the eighties recovered memory/Satanic Panic hysteria while she was in school.

And impressionable. And maybe "looking to make a difference."

If you've never seen the great James-Woods-starring HBO movie Indictment: The McMartin Trial, Wikipedia sums up the real-life trial of a perfectly-innocent family running a dayschool based on "recovered memories" of kids who claimed they'd been sexually abused in Satanic rituals:


The McMartin preschool trial was a day care sexual abuse case in the 1980s, prosecuted by the Los Angeles District Attorney Ira Reiner.[1] Members of the McMartin family, who operated a preschool in Manhattan Beach, California, were charged with numerous acts of sexual abuse of children in their care. Accusations were made in 1983. Arrests and the pretrial investigation ran from 1984 to 1987, and the trial ran from 1987 to 1990. After six years of criminal trials, no convictions were obtained, and all charges were dropped in 1990. When the trial ended in 1990, it had been the longest and most expensive criminal trial in American history.[2] The case was part of day-care sex-abuse hysteria, a moral panic over alleged Satanic ritual abuse in the 1980s and early 1990s.

The stories they told were literally unbelievable. Literally. Unbelievable. Kids told them about "The Naked Movie Star Game" where they'd have to undress and strut the cat-walk for guests.

In another incident, kids claimed that they were led to a ceremony to engage in Satanic rites. A photo array was put before a kid, and he was asked to circle any faces of the men who took them to the ceremony.

The two men identified? An LA attorney and martial arts legend Chuck Norris.


This link may not work for long, but this seems to be the full movie.

The Chuck Norris part is at 109:30.

Of course, that's just the case they made a movie about -- this panic swept up all of America. Commenters remind me that Janet Reno made her reputation (to the extent she has one) riding this wave of insane panic.

19 On that twitter thread, this is totally apropos:
---
Can you imagine if Judge Kavanaugh played 'Cornhole' back in the day?
---
Because to midwesterners like me "cornhole" is a bawdy name for a game throwing beanbags into a slanted board with a hole in it.

But the Senate Judiciary Committee Demunists would demand it referred to sodomy.

Every Dem is a better authority on what Kavanaugh meant than Kavanaugh himself.

Why? This wasn't a "prosecution", it was a Senate committee hearing. If she had done what you wanted that would have given the dems countless hours of free campaign sound bites for November, which is exactly what they were hoping for.

She did her job and didn't get into the theatrics that the dems wanted and gave her report today to the committee which said that ford is a lying biotch.


I think she did a great job.

Yep - that was them. Convicted and sent to jail with absolutely not a shred of actual physical proof in spite of utterly horrific accusations that would have left scars, at minimum.

You're still not allowed to talk about the Amirault family up here. Only Gerald's conviction was upheld; the rest of the family all had their convictions overturned and it's widely believed that Gerald was, in a word, railroaded.

He spent 18-years in jail. The board of pardons unanimously voted to commute his sentence in 2000, but then-Governor Jane Swift (R) refused to follow-through. Because, reasons.

It's widely accepted that he (and the rest of his family) were convicted for crimes they never committed.

No.


This is what will happen. Done.


If Flake flakes, again, I imagine Mitch will move to the nomination, objection will be heard, then Mitch will move to invoke cloture.


That is - the "vote" will be called. If Flake opposes Kav, that's what he does. Same for the abortion twins. Same choice faces Manchin, Heitkamp, and Donnelly (who waffled a bit on his surprising "no" announcement in a newspaper interview in IN).


I seriously doubt Mitch delays any longer. No point. "Incomplete FBI investigation" of an incident most people naturally don't believe occurred anyway is zero tactical leverage for vulnerable Dems, or for the abortion twins, if they're looking to do damage control for their futures.

So why not do this with all Judicial appointments?

Mitchell's mission during the hearing wasn't to pound the table and yell at Dr. Crazy-pants, "You're a lunatic lying b!tch!!!" Mitchell's mission was to expose the inconsistancies in both the allegation and how that allegation was handled while giving the impression to the audience that Republicans were "Willing to hear the allegation." She was so successful that the Demonrats were reduced to spelunking for juicy gossip in Kavanaugh's High School year book and nattering about "Her truth," when referring to Dr. Ford's allegation.

Read Mitchell's report, it is actually quite damning and gives Flake, Murkowski and Collins zero cover for voting "no" for Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation to the US Supreme Court.

She had seen a counselor for treatment of depression in the early 90s, where it was suggested that perhaps part of her depression owed to a repressed memory of being sexually abused by her father. It really screwed her up for a few months until she stopped drinking the koolaid and realized the whole repressed memory thing was bullshit.

a. The creation of false memories is a really widely and well documented phenomenon, and the factors that play into it are the subject of a pretty well known literature.

b. C Blasey is basically the middle author of a small pile of second rate publications in psychology, and from a brief perusal, she's basically the statistician involved.

c. This means that she's encountered the literature but isn't really deeply into it. She's the local person in the psych dept. that people go to to make sure the statistical methods and conclusions of the paper are OK.

I mean, she's also on papers about autism, depression and velocardial facial syndrome. My bet is she doesn't know that much about any of those either. She's the second-rate departmental stats wonk. Most university psychology depts have at least one.

297 From Memorandum Order to Limit or Exclude Expert TestimonyTimothy Clark v. Richard B. EdisonUS District Court, Massachusetts, 2012Civil Action No. 0-40040-FDS
Case involves expert testimony in child sex abuse case from recovered memory; allowed "after substantial misgivings' experts to testify about memory repression theory but not on "whether plaintiff suffered from the alleged abuse and whether he repressed his memories of the experience..
" . . . the direct study of memory is in many ways impossible, in the sense that the inner workings of the human mind cannot be directly examined. The study of memory relies heavily, if not entirely, on self-reporting by individual patients and subjects. When a person claims to have a lack of memory, or to have lost a memory and then recovered it, there may be no accurate way to test that proposition. At the very least, the type of rigorous testing and analysis required in other sciences is simply not possible."

I believe this is right. The Democrats have superhuman level of Party discipline, in a Party where every last member is power-hungry narcissist, and totally out for themselves. It really does beggar belief that it's even possible.

So I believe that when they're grooming candidates they have "the talk." And that those candidates know there'll be a botched robbery, mysterious suicide, or plane crash if they step out of line.

The sister of one of my best life-long friends fell for that bullshit. While growing up I interacted with his dad countless times and I don't believe a bit of the story. Obviously I wasn't at his house 24/7 but he never struck me as that kind of man. There were also two other sisters and they never claimed anything like that. In fact, he lived with the youngest daughter for the last few years of his life. The daughter who made that claim tore the family apart and there is no excuse for it.

311 Once you've been vetted/confirmed for a Cabinet level position, you're basically "in" and can be moved to any other Cabinet position without being re-confirmed. Right?

I don't think this is true. While they don't necessarily have hearings for the new position, the Senate still needs to vote to confirm the appointment.

Posted by: Bubba at October 01, 2018 04:31 PM (h7htg)

312 Yep, as Buckeye Cop notes, Mitchell's concrete and devastating analysis shows plainly that Ford is lying, or incoherent (mentally) to the point of being useless as a witness. Um - this is in *addition* to the little tiny evidence problems of no date, time, explanation of return home from the incident, and on and on.


Flake and the abortion freaks can't hide from that, all they can do is brazen out the consequences of pretending to do so. Which they can do.


Interesting aside by Trump this morning, about races in play that were not on the list of gettable seats, 6 months ago. I'm guessing this is confirmation that red state Senate Dems, and some House seats, are looking very good right now.


In this context, there are several scenarios/plays Mitch and Trump can make involving Kav's nomination that could be electoral gold in November.

Correct. The only thing Flake can do now is vote against him in the full vote.

That said, he should be kicked off the committee anyway. There will be other judgeships coming before it, plus the outside chance that RBG or Breyer leaves the Court, for whatever reason.

She had seen a counselor for treatment of depression in the early 90s, where it was suggested that perhaps part of her depression owed to a repressed memory of being sexually abused by her father. It really screwed her up for a few months until she stopped drinking the koolaid and realized the whole repressed memory thing was bullshit.

She's 3rd last on the author list. The first two names and last name generally mean something in terms of contribution. Middle authors are contributors/collaborators. They usefully contribute but aren't central to the relevance/importance of the ideas /phenomena being investigated.

367 She had seen a counselor for treatment of depression in the early 90s, where it was suggested that perhaps part of her depression owed to a repressed memory of being sexually abused by her father. It really screwed her up for a few months until she stopped drinking the koolaid and realized the whole repressed memory thing was bullshit.
_________________

Remember in the '90's when Roseanne Barr was all over the news claiming that her father had sexually molested her when she was a kid? She wrote a book about it, appeared on People magazine's cover in a story about it, did every talk show on t.v. -- and always had details like how her father would make her sit on her lap and play with his naked penis. Her parents denied it, her siblings denied it, everybody who knew them said it wasn't true, but it didn't matter.

Then, in the early 2000's, Roseanne just casually lets drop during an interview that none of that shit ever happened, and that she had apologized to her family for saying it did (unfortunately, her father died before this happened). She blamed the combination of mind-altering drugs that her therapists had been prescribing her, but it was probably also suggested to her during the therapy sessions that she was a sex abuse victim, and that her parents were likely the culprits.

370 From Seattle University Law Review, Vol18:51 p. 65 [1994]
quoting Richard Ofshe, Prof. of Sociology, Cal
"Sixty years of experiments that would demonstrate the phenomenon [of recovered memories] have failed to produce any evidence of its existence. The notion of repression has never been more than an unsubstantiated speculation tied to other Freudian concepts and speculative mechanisms. The only support repression has ever had is anecdotal and contributed by psychoanalysts who presume the existence of a repression mechanism."

Also cited is Elizabeth Loftus who "suggests the existence of two important sources that could potentially feed into the construction of false memories. These are popular writings and therapists' suggestions."

Posted by: Bandersnatch at October 01, 2018 04:26 PM (fuK7c)


Out of those 4 - Flake, Murk, Collins ManChin, it's important that 3 vote the same way and not 2/2.


It has to be 51-49 or more to confirm. 50/50 means (depending on how the actual votes are) that one of those 4 could have negated Kav being on the SC. Say it's the three Rs for and ManChin against. There's nothing to be gained by saying had Flake (or either of the two ladies) flipped. It's then 50/50 and Pence casts the tiebreaker.

All 4 are looking for cover. If they all vote party line, it's mute. If they all vote in favor, its mute. If they all vote against, it's mute. Because on "one" single senator either confirmed or negated Kav on the court. They can go to their state and say "Hey, it wouldn't have mattered had I voted the other way. The votes to confirm (not-confirm) were there regardless of how I voted. It's CYA at its worst.

But I think Collins leads that pack. She got what she wanted was "prosecutor" to question Ford. Flake got his one week FBI supplemental. Murk is along for the ride. ManChin also is. I don't think he bucks the other 3.

Think of this quote from him: "I'm a conservative, and he will be a conservative justice."

He voted Kav out of committee.

Again, this is power politics, plain and simple. In this game, the side that shouts and cries the most has the weakest position.

As McConnell said: we have 51 senators who voted to proceed with the nomination. He said this twice.

The supplemental check is over. The vote may happen tomorrow.

It's a matter of whipping two of the four to get to 50. Manchin must vote yes, or he loses re-election. So then it's one of Flake, Murkowski, or Collins.

422 I knew someone who was very very much a "part of" the McMartin thing, in that he became a constant presence on TV as a guest talking-head expert saying the whole thing was being blown out of proportion. The problem? He himself was a Satanist (seriously) who thought Satanists were being unfairly demonized. H actually knew nothing more about the facts of the case than did anyone else -- he automatically assumed that the McMartins WERE in fact Satanists, but that didn't mean they did creepy rituals and hurt kids. So he constantly defended them for being Satanists and said Satanists were not child molesters.

Ultimately, in retrospect, he probably ended up HURTING their case, by having a Satanist confirming that the McMartins were fellow devil-worshippers.

Flake though may just end up voting no because he needs somewhere to go and it would give him another 15 minutes.

The kids claimed that they had been tortured and sexually abused in purported "tunnels" under the preschool. But police and investigators never could find any such tunnels, casting extreme doubt on the kids' stories. Years later, after the whole case was no longer part of the news and the hysteria was over and everyone realized it was a case of fake recovered memories, the site of the preschool was sold and the building was demolished, and they started to put in the foundation for a new building. During the construction process they were digging and discovered...tunnels, deep underground.

I once told an academic friend of mine that in my opinion Economics was nothing more than social psychology but with a useful metric (ie money). He really didn't take kindly to it.

It's possible to do useful psychology and sociology, but I agree with you that much of it is onanistic BS. People are waking up to this fact, and reform will come, but it will be slow. Just look at the mess anthropology was in 30 years ago. There's some good social and physical anthropology now. Still some junk, but it's waaaaay better now.

530 So a note on the fallout from this...

In the last few years, a number of industries have gone through highly publicized outbreaks of SJW bat-shit insanity, only to have the witch hunt fall apart.

What the public sees is the initial uproar, maybe a bit of the downward spiral, then the media tosses it all down the memory hole.


What they *don't* see are the internal purges associated with businesses that have decided that - for example - some female employees may pose an existential threat to their livelihoods.


It's also pretty rough watching a bunch of young women who haven't done anything have to pay for the grandstanding of a bunch of older harpies, as their job apps get thrown in the circular file. Many of them had no idea it was happening.


It's taken years for things to get back to normal in some fields, but now the effects of this are going to be felt across the board. This circus is a whole new level of fucked-up.

well, one can have both an agenda and a weak mind that is easily Incepted with false memories.

The fake memory implanted thing makes a lot of sense since she can't really seem to remember jack shit about this.

But I can also see the bandwagon filling for the "something happened, but not by Brett" thing too.

That being said, I'm going to say that because most that are truly assaulted remember every detail, I think she was molested by a family member. Those memories are often repressed to the point of confusion when they come out later in life.

567 Little-known fact from the aftermath of the McMartin case:

The kids claimed that they had been tortured and sexually abused in purported "tunnels" under the preschool. But police and investigators never could find any such tunnels, casting extreme doubt on the kids' stories. Years later, after the whole case was no longer part of the news and the hysteria was over and everyone realized it was a case of fake recovered memories, the site of the preschool was sold and the building was demolished, and they started to put in the foundation for a new building. During the construction process they were digging and discovered...tunnels, deep underground.

Spooky.

The nice thing about looking at econmics that way is you can then ask (for instance) when people do act like homo economicus, and when they don't, and then you can explore (quanitatively) the strength of the motives for acting non-rationally. With regular sociology you just babble about paradigms and hermaneutics and cultural blah blah shit and you can't predict squat.

Sadly, she was abused by various foster parents over her life (almost certainly the source of her learning issues) and she works really hard to prevent her daughters from looking or acting like girls for fear of what will happen to them.

Well, you have to consider the reality defying sphere that is the Democrats on this stupid committee.

Dick Blumenthal, a bizarre snake-looking guy who lechered all over a young 16 year old when he was in his 30s. She must have looked ok back then, she's kinda plain looking. Couldn't tell if she has big bazooms.

Booker, a guy who plays with imaginary friends. A real strange guy with eyeballs shooting two different directions, like Marty Feldman. Guy can't be trusted.

So we bring in Wayne and Garth to give a talk on how someone did something to her...

And she's lying her ass off. But what exactly did he do? He tried to get with her, at a party, and may have placed his hand over her mouth to get her to not scream, or something. Then Mike Judge came in and knocked them off the bed.

What the fuck is that about?

There's another big factor involved: if you get "diagnosed" as "being on the spectrum" or having any form of other so-called "learning disabilities" or "cognitive differences," then you BY LAW (at least in California) get special help and special treatment at school -- AND the school gets extra $$$ to "care for" you.

So botht eh mother and the schools have a motivation to get the kid diagnosed - -the koms think it will help the kids get a leg-up academically, and the school wants that $$$$.

One of my sisters-in-law is a "Special Ed" teachert and she rants about this constantly. She has hundreds of student in her "special ed" classes, and she says less than 5% of the them are actually retarded or seriously weird. The rest are either false diagnosed, or are just teen criminals who get dumped in the classes too.

One area near Panmunjom (where the sole border crossing is) and another area near Arrow Head Hill.

Lots of Nork and ChiCom bodies in the area, too. I'm not sure if "buried" is the right word, though. "Lost" might be better.

The Norks may or may not care much about theirs, but the Chinese would probably like to have their casualties back.

He could have told Feinscrunt to produce the letter she had after she leveled the charges against Cavanuagh and grilled her on it. He could have taken the opportunity to remind Senator Hirono that no one is compelled to just shut up, and he could have denied Ford the opportunity to speak after her uncooperative response and her silly demands. Grassley had every chance to control his committee to minimize the buffoonery that is the democrats.

She said it in her testimony.

"I believed he was going to rape me" = He didn't rape me.


And this is the key. I'm gonna keep saying this, because its a source of deep frustration for me. What she accuses him of doing isn't even serious assault.

It depends a lot on the mood and the attitude of the people involved. Its like watching a scene with different kinds of music behind it. Was it silly fun music with laughing, covering her mouth and saying "shh don't be so loud" or was it creepy with tears and gritted determined teeth, covering her mouth as she stares in terror?

The problem with the scary interpretation is how the hell does she get away from two older, stronger, bigger boys set on raping her out of a locked room? And why the hell did she go into a back room with two boys while everyone was drunk in the first place, did she figure they'd discuss the Homoousios Clause? Did they go in there to search for her lost keys? You don't go into a back room with boys at a drinking party for innocent reasons to begin with.

Decisions made in that committee have ramifications far beyond the optics that may or may not detrimentally affect the Dems in the next election. The discussion should have been as serious and somber as the subject and it's downstream effects. To allow a man like Kavanaugh to be denigrated and impugned, and the committee and the process reduced to a clown show is the epitome of poor leadership. It should have been expected and nipped in the bud. Ruthlessly.

Having followed this somewhat closely, I've been sideswiped at times because I didn't realize that many (if not MOST) people have the impression that Ford's is a rape accusation. To anyone following AT ALL, it should go without saying that hers is an ATTEMPTED rape charge (and a dubious on at that, if you pay attention to the details).

Just recently, I had a couple of people pipe up with the classic "I know someone who was a victim, and they say..." I asked, "Now, your victim you speak of is a rape victim, right? So it's an almost completely different thing, since even the allegation here is only of ATTEMPTED rape." All I got in response - even from the Kavanaugh supporter - was crickets. I assume that means that no, they did not realize that EXTREMELY important point.

I assume that a lot of this has to do with how it is framed as an accusation of "sexual assault". Technically, it actually IS, but normally when the general public hears that term it's a euphemism for "rape". This is on purpose, of course - it's propaganda - and it's one of those cases where even Fox is as guilty as the rest of them.

To go further with your "= He didn't rape me." theme, I would observe that the vary idea that what she described was an attempted rape (even if it happened at all, which I very much doubt) is a matter of opinion. By her own account there was absolutely NO success in getting ANY of ANYBODY'S clothes off - not so much as a button popped off, or a torn sleeve. Not so much as a belt buckle undone. If this drunken scumbag really wanted to rape her, why did he simply leave her alone after she escaped to the bathroom across the hall? Makes no sense.


But to answer your later question, she said she was pushed into an upstairs room from behind, supposedly being unaware there was anybody behind her. There is no explanation for why she would wander upstairs away from the group - when this is supposedly a social gathering. Of course, there's also no explanation for why she would be part of this small gathering of friends, when she wasn't friends with any except one (who says under oath it didn't happen).

758 I was stationed in Spain when all of this was going down - and I had a kindergarten-aged daughter in day care - so I followed developments at a remove, though several different media outlets. Including a voice of sanity and skepticism at -- believe it or not - the Village Voice. A reporter for that paper followed a local trial involving a day-care employee who had gotten caught up in that special kind of hell.
The worst and most insidious thing about the Satanic Day-Care panic was how parents who were peripherally-involved just by having their kids in the suspect daycare centers and who were properly skeptical about the absurd claims - wound up being threatened as well. "Oh, yeah? If you don't go along with these claims? What are you trying to hide ... comrade?"
There was a particularly ugly case in (IIRC) the Pacific Northwest where families who very publicly doubted the Satanic abuse accusations, and spoke out in defense of the accused -- got accused themselves in turn.

I put a comment out on FB about how, while the Dems claim it's not a campaign to smear the Judge, that you literally has Sen Whitehouse paging through Kavanaugh's High School yearbook, on national TV in a Congressional hearing, looking to make hay from the careless 35+ year-old ramblings of teenagers. That it devolved to talking about farts.

I got crickets. I think the people who might have read it are mostly liberals, or maybe didn't know me - or the subject - well enough to even believe it.


Normal people who saw that have to be asking themselves, "Geez - what could somebody make of it, if they went through MY high school yearbook."

Do they notice "this is ridiculous, bring high school into this"? Maybe some yes, some no.


Now the Leftists - and Judge Napolitano, but I repeat myself - are salivating over the possibility of the FBI going after Kavanaugh, claiming perjury if anyone can be found to dispute his characterization of his 35 years past drinking habits.

767 Wiping out her social media footprint was possible because she "owned" it and she clearly had help from her partisan attorneys. Scrubbing a publication history is nearly impossible. Anything published with her name on it is the property of the journal publishing it since they won't publish without holding the copyright. Plus the co-authors who were far more significant in the paper would have more standing to complain. Journals don't scrub something unless a) someone finds academic fraud in the article, b) the author(s) report it was fraudulent, or c) it's deemed badthinkful and a group of SJW academic storm troopers intimidate the journal into pulling it. Neither case seems to apply to this document.

Thanks!

That does a bit better as to why this is supposedly a big deal. I see: "... hypnosis could be used to improve rapport in the therapeutic relationship, to assist in the retrieval of important memories, and create artificial situations that would permit the client to express ego-dystonic emotions in a safe manner."

I don't know exactly what this means, but that sounds closer to what I guess the assumed conclusion is, that they were intentionally planting delusional memories.


It also gets into something Judge Jeanine got into on her show: 'The authors noted that hypnosis as a means of recovering traumatic memories could also lead to the "contamination" of those memories.'

So that's "old news" to me.

Judge Jeanine speculates that her therapist notes likely show that this recovered memory of hers is probably from hypnosis, and that it's well known that such memories are very unreliable. So that would be one reason not to release the notes.


I'VE noted that the only person she even claims to have given Kavanaugh's actual name to is her hsuband, and he has neither testified nor made a statement under oath. Maybe everybody just accepts that his testimony is basically worthless anyway.
