#BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #DmitryPeskov #Putin #Ukraine #Deception #Lying #Kyiv
2/ Dmitry Peskov, Putin's spokesperson, lies multiple times during this short video (multiple additional lies are also exhibited during the complete interview).One particular segment and the accompanying lies are analyzed here — with emphasis on the nonverbal tells.
3/At 0:12 mark, Peskov, says, "Ahhh, now about two regions, Kyiv and Chernihiv regions. Ahhh, so, actually the troops were really withdrawn from that region [sic] as an act of a GOOD will — during the negotiations between two delegations — Russian and Ukrainian Delegation [sic]."

There has been speculation what the "Z" letter on Russian tanks invading Ukraine stands for:

Whatever tactical purpose, during the last days, a massive propaganda campaign has started using the #Z for a "rally behind the army" effect. An analytical🧵...
The disinformation channel Russia Today may have started it (or kicked it off?) one week ago by selling merchandise with the symbol of the invasion. Meanwhile, Russian social media is flooded with paroles using the symbol.
dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1…
When there is one word I dislike in Russian, a language I have studied for 10 years and that I love, it is "naš" (наш), meaning "our". In everyday language use, anything Russian will be called "наш". I have spent years explaining this was banal nationalism, and here we go:

#Propaganda #protip: Never forget that #Editing is #Lying.

Read this #WaPo story: web.archive.org/web/2022010808…. Than look at this 3-tweet thread by Michael P Senger: . Almost NOTHING of what Senger points out as misinformation appears in the WaPo piece.
And of the one or two claims that do make it in, there is no hint whatsoever that the claims might be false.

The CDC has stated that the vaccinated can catch and spread the disease, e.g., but Kagan’s statement to the contrary is not challenged.
Another egregious example is in this Vox story; vox.com/2022/1/7/22871…. The #Biden administration apparently claims that covid is more deadly than smallpox, yellow fever, or cholera. That is complete nonsense, unbelievably wrong.

.#Protip: A nice example of deception, this. A calm reasonable tone. Who would guess Mr. William is #lying?

Yes, go read the letter at web.archive.org/web/2021093010… Although there are frequent mentions of "threats," the examples given are people showing up at school board meetings
and angrily opposing policy. Why, some of them even shouted, and made other loud noises. The Horror! Oddly, when done by #Leftists, this is regarded as perfectly legitimate.

The letter references a news story on said "threats." Read the story, web.archive.org/web/2021090116…, and the
"threats" turn out to be people shouting, and failing to show the proper respect to school boards.

The letter says "the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes."

Another long thread, alas.

This is a great illustration of Surowiecki's contempt for those who disagree with him about the #vax. Hilariously, he is the author of THE WISDOM OF CROWDS, but has decided the #AntiVax crowd has no wisdom at all.
Let's examine his sneers, as he tells us what we ought to think.

We should be opposed to Monoclonal Antibody therapy, because it isn't FDA approved yet. Implicit in this is the idea that one can't evaluate the FDA or its decisions intelligently. We are just too stupid for that
(unlike other crowds, which are oh, so wise).

He claims MAB trials started just before those of the #vaccines. I turn to Wikipedia, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monoclona…, and find that MABs were developed in 1975, and the developers won the 1984 Nobel Prize for Medicine that achievement.

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4612: Kenneth Copeland 'talks to (and grows impatient with) God'

#BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #KennethCopeland #DupingDelight #Lying #Lie #Deception
2/ There are two primary reasons a person has decreased eye contact during a lie. Image
3/ First, diminished eye contact is a classic and highly characteristic nonverbal signal that the lying is a *secondary manifestation* (i.e., the lie comes first — and the decreased eye contact is subconscious *result of* their lying).

Random thoughts on the farcical #impeachment #show #trial.

Where's #ChiefJustice #Roberts?

To clarify, the Senate is NOT required to employ the services of the Chief Justice in the conduct of an impeachment trial except when the President is on trial.
Excepting presidential impeachments of #Clinton and #Trump, the modern Senate has impeached through a process in which the matter tried in committee, rather than before the whole Senate, and then and submitted to the Senate for ultimate judgment by the entire body.
In fact, this method was used in the modern impeachments of federal judges @RepHastingsFL and #WalterNixon.
