The Brett Kavanaugh hearings recently found their way into the CT community. Natural News recently ran a story accusing Christine Blasey Ford of conducting mind control experiments for the CIA. The claims are linked together by a series of unfounded correlations about experimental therapy, false flags, and mind control that don’t stand up to much basic scrutiny. Mike Adams authored the original Natural News story, which appeared on October 1st. https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10...notic-inductions-of-psychiatric-subjects.html Infowars also picked up the story. https://www.infowars.com/breaking-k...expert-in-mind-control-and-planting-memories/ The actual title of the paper Blasey-Ford co-authored is: “Meditation with yoga, group therapy with hypnosis, and psychoeducation for long-term depressed mood: A randomized pilot trial” https://www.researchgate.net/public...-term_depressed_mood_A_randomized_pilot_trial Natural News includes a link to the article, but not the title. Obviously, the purpose of the pilot program (and that is important before we make the leap to “mass hypnosis”) is therapy for depression. And, if you really want to push the point, Blasey Ford would be equally guilty of a CIA-sponsored mass yoga program, if you follow Mike Adams’ “logic” in his article. Regardless, Natural News moves to the following conclusion: https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10...notic-inductions-of-psychiatric-subjects.html Except we don’t. Natural News makes no linkages between a pilot study addressing depression and a “’false flag’ assault on Brett Kavanaugh.” Adams later returns to his main point by citing another study apparently sponsored by the Mental Insight Foundation, which also funded Blasey-Ford’s work. https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10...notic-inductions-of-psychiatric-subjects.html This is some interesting and manipulative wordsmithing on Adams’ part. The term “inference-control loops” does appear in the cited article. The word “hijack” does not, although Adams placed them both in quotes when making the reference to the article. He is inferring content that is not there. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2451902217302343 I don’t think the Mike Adams understands how clinical psychology works or what the research is attempting to do in a therapeutic setting. From Adams’ perspective, anything involving the mind seems to automatically involve “mind control.” There are too many gross exaggerations and departures from logic in his story.
