Hysteria was the first mental health illness attributed to women. For centuries it was considered both a common and chronic medical disorder. Female Hysteria was intrinsically intertwined with womens sexuality and reproductive organs. The origin of the term hysteria stems from the Greek equivalent for uterus hystera. Symptoms included everything from nervousness, sexual desire, insomnia, irritability, loss of appetite, and a "tendency to cause trouble". Hysteria was the diagnosis for everything that men found mysterious or unmanageable in women and was used as evidence of the instability of the female mind. Many women who were diagnosed with hysteria were forced into insane asylums or to undergo surgical hysterectomies. One of the major triumphs of the feminist movement was to eradicate the diagnosis and stigma of female hysteria.
After centuries of fighting against stereotypes of women as irrational emotional hysterics, Christine Blasey Ford and her cult of feminist victims reestablished the worst stereotypes of women as fragile, defenseless, erratic and unstable. When women were marching for equal rights, equal pay and equal position in society, they did not envision being represented by a woman who is the very personification of female hysteria. Christine Blasey Fords fragmented recovered memory of a sexual assault, her 36-year-old ongoing trauma, uncorroborated allegations, childlike affectation, feigned helplessness and alleged irrational fears are a profile in female hysteria.
The American Psychiatric Association dropped the term female hysteria in 1952. Subsequently, the classification of disorders formerly known as female hysteria have been controversially categorized in other conditions such as schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, conversion disorder, and anxiety attacks. Another condition that was formerly associated with hysteria is referred to as Factitious disorder also known as Munchausen Syndrome and related to Malingering. Malingerers commonly fake psychological disorders such as anxiety and fabricate trauma for a variety of reasons -- most often financial compensation tied to fraud. Munchausen Syndrome is a factitious disorder where people feign disease, illness, or psychological trauma to draw attention, sympathy, or reassurance to themselves. Symptoms include phobias, anxiety disorders, a history of recurrent hospitalization and dramatic, extremely improbable tales of their past experiences. The person often exaggerates or creates symptoms of illnesses to gain attention, sympathy, and/or comfort from medical personnel. In some cases, the person becomes highly knowledgeable about the practice of medicine and can recite and produce symptoms to garner more attention.
Christine Ford received a lot of attention and sympathy when she testified before Congress about her alleged assault by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. During her testimony, Ford frequently responded not as a victim but as a physician. When asked by Senator Feinstein about the impact the events had on her, Ford responded:
Well, I think that the sequelae of sexual assault varies by person, so for me personally, anxiety, phobia and PTSD-like symptoms are the types of things that Ive been coping with. So, more specifically, claustrophobia, panic and that type of thing.
When Senator Feinstein asked her how she was sure it was Judge Kavanaugh that assaulted her, Ford responded:
Its 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.
The press praised her unusual responses by characterizing her as a research psychologist who appeared as her own expert witness. The reason expert witnesses do not testify on their own behalf is that a court and jury rely on expert witnesses to be disinterested parties, who are not biased and have no motive to fabricate an issue. It never occurred to the media to question Ford's self-diagnosis as the result of a trained political operative or the manifestation of a mental disorder. In fact, people who suffer from factitious disorders often research and study symptoms and diseases, so they can better fake them. Ford has made a career out of studying mental illness, writing prolifically about the long-term impacts of trauma, including trauma related to sexual abuse. She would know exactly how to lie about the symptoms and trauma associated with sexual assault.
There is a significant difference between studying trauma and authentically experiencing it. The genuineness of Christine Fords choice of language, affectation and disclosures were questionable. Throughout her entire testimony there was no other person, event, detail, or evidence that corroborated her testimony. Her demeanor and body language appeared rehearsed and coached. The most obvious pretense was her speech pattern. During most of her testimony she used a deliberate and calculated childish voice to project vulnerability and helplessness. When responding to specific questions about her trauma, she spoke in the third person in the guise of an esteemed physician. Survivors of sexual assault do not describe their trauma in the third person nor do they have to read from a written script to remember the details.
One week after Fords testimony, Nadia Murad, a 25-year-old Iraqi Yazidi woman was awarded the Nobel Peace prize for her campaign to end wartime sexual violence and to free the Yazidi people who were captured by ISIS terrorists. Murad became the voice and face of women who survived sexual violence by the Islamic State after she escaped sexual slavery. At 19 years old she was captured from her village of Kocho. Six of her brothers and her mother were killed in the massacre. Murad was sold as a sex slave and repeatedly gang raped, tortured and beaten until she escaped. Nadia Murad is a true survivor. By definition survivors do not think of themselves as victims. The differences between Ford and Murad is evident in their own words.
The first time Nadia Murad attempted to escape she was caught and was punished by being gang raped by six of her slave owners guards. She was then subjected to even more abuse as she was passed around to other militants. She described the incident in her memoir, The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State:
'Nadia, I told you that if you tried to escape something really bad would happen to you,' A moment later Morteja, Yahya, Hossam, and the three other guards walked in, staring at me. As soon as I saw them, I understood what my punishment would be. Morteja was the first to come to the bed. I tried to stop him, but he was too strong. He pushed me down, and there was nothing I could do. After Morteja, another guard raped me. I screamed for my mother and for Khairy, my brother ... My body was covered in filth left by the men .The bed still smelled like the men who had raped me.
Senator Leahy asked Christine Ford: What is the strongest memory you have, the strongest memory of the incident, something that you cannot forget? She answered, Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter, the laugh the uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense. Fords diagnostic answer of the strongest memory of her alleged sexual assault is being laughed at, while Murad remembers being covered in filth and what her rapists smelled like.
On June 21, 2016, Nadia Murad testified before members of Congress during the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on Capitol Hill. The comparison between Ford and Murad is striking. Murad is not reading from a script, nor talking in a childish voice. She does not use medical terms or repeatedly refer to herself as a traumatized victim of sexual assault. She remembers every face, name and smell of her very real multiple serial sexual assaults. She holds her head up high and states that she was raped, sold and abused but wants Congress to know that there are hundreds of other victims and that girls as young as nine also suffered that.
Nadia Murad is a true profile in courage and bravery. Christine Ford is a profile in female hysteria. Murad refused to accept the strict social codes that require women to remain silent and bravely spoke publicly about what she had suffered. She did not remain anonymous to avoid personal pain. She inspired the world to collect and preserve evidence that would allow ISIS militants to be brought to trial.
Christine ford inspired mass hysteria resulting in roving mobs of hysterical women stalking senators in the halls of the capitol screeching about rape like some primal scream group therapy session. Ford inspired women to disrupt the confirmation vote by chanting "Shame! Shame!" like the religious zealots in a Game of Thrones episode.
Nadia Murad is a remarkable brave woman, a true survivor, a heroine fighting for justice for both men and women and the future of both womens and human rights. Christine Ford is a professional victim, a throwback to female hysteria, the poster child for the infantilization of women, a disgrace to every woman who fought for womens rights and an insult to every victim of sexual violence.
Why does Ford never mentions the assault to her super close BFF McLean who she lived with, who is a lawyer and special agent in the FBI for 24 years since 1992? McLean would know what to do, that is, file a police complaint not say I want to remain anonymous then give all your contact information to far-left liberal media and far-left liberal politicians. It is all a disgusting sham.
Is McLean one of the beach friends?
McLean wanted to remain unknown hidden in the Deep State but was inadvertently exposed by Ford ex boyfriend Brian Merrick lying about the polygraph at the hearing.
Deep State Operation? - Connecting the Dots 1. Monica Lee McLean, lawyer, 24 years DOJ/FBI, lifelong best friend of Ford, rogue McLean was spokesperson for fired anti-Trump rogue DOJ SDNY US Attorney Preet Bharara, a former staffer for Chuck Schumer, Ford coached McLean on how to take polygraph to apply for DOJ/FBI, Did McLean recruit and coach Ford? Why does Ford never mentions the assault to her super close BFF McLean who she lived with, is a lawyer and special agent in the FBI since 1992? Is McLean one of the beach friends? McLean wanted to remain unknown hidden in the Deep State but was inadvertently exposed by Ford ex boyfriend Brian Merrick lying about the polygraph. Did rogue McLean or others find a friendly former FBI to give the polygraph? 2. Michael Bromwich, former Inspector General DOJ/FBI, lawyer for fired former Deputy Director FBI Andrew McCabe, both part of anti-Trump rogue group along with rogue David Laufman et al 3. McLean's lawyer is rogue former DOJ Deputy Asst AG, chief of the counterintelligence section at the Justice Department's National Security Division, David Laufman who helped oversee Clinton email server, Russian collusion delusion probes, taking out Gen Flynn, In his former position, Laufman would have been involved and hold knowledge of the FISA Title-1 surveillance program initiated on target Carter Page and the incidental Trump campaign officials. Laufman would also have close contact with former Asst. Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr; husband of Fusion GPS employee Nellie Ohr, David Laufman also participated in the July 2nd 2016 interview of Hillary Clinton. 4. Ford heads Stanford CIA Undergraduate Internship Program 5. Ford's father Ralph Blasey, Jr. works for the CIA 6. Ford's grandfather Nicholas Deak worked for the CIA 7. Ford's brother Ralph Blasey III worked in BakerHostetler which hired FusionGPS located in a building with 3 black ops CIA companies Red Coats Inc., Admiral Security Services and Datawatch. 8. Debra Katz, Ford's lawyer recommended by Feinstein, represented clients from Clinton and Obama administration, also represented Julie Swetnick in a sexual harassment lawsuit against New York Life in 2010 9. Plaintiff lawyer David P.R. Symes worked at Perkins Coie LLP, Portland, OR in Julie Swetwick v Webtrends in Oregon lawsuit, also at Perkins Coie is Marc Elias who represented Hillary and also hired Fusion GPS involved with Chris Steele Russian Dossier. 10. Fired rogue former FBI Director Comey confidant James Baker met with Perkins Coie lawyer Michael Sussmann in September of 2016, a few weeks before the FBI obtained a FISA warrant. 11. Ricki Seidman, Ford's political consultant lawyer worked with Clintons and in Obama administration, major far left donor fundraiser activist operative 12. An Aug. 11, 2009, release by the Southern District of New York lists Jim Margolin and Monica McLean (Dr. Fords lifetime friend) as FBI Public Information Office contacts. Additionally, a 2009 CNN article describes McLean as the spokeswoman for the FBIs New York office.
Media references to McLean appear to suddenly dry up after 2009. Any references to her work history disappear from this date until her retirement in 2016. References to her former spokesperson partner at the FBI, Margolin, continue to this dayincluding his statements in relation to the Prevezon case and former personal attorney to Donald Trump, Michael Cohen.
Russian holding company Prevezon, which was accused of money laundering, was represented by Russian Lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya who hired the law firm BakerHostetler for legal representation in the case. BakerHostetler then hired Fusion GPSbest known for producing the controversial Steele dossierto uncover information regarding financier Bill Browder.
The Prevezon Case was prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara (major anti-Trump) of the Southern District of New York (SDNY) which granted permission for a Significant Public Benefit Parole document on Sept. 25, 2015, to Natalia Veselnitskaya, allowing her entry into the United States.
Veselnitskaya is best known for her June 2016 meeting at the Trump Tower with members of the Trump campaign including Donald Trump Jr. Veselnitskaya reportedly met with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson before and after the meeting at Trump Tower.
Does a person who is truly truth seeking and wants justice suddenly have a cadre of highly connected political donor fundraising activist operatives surrounding her? Why not just go directly to law enforcement and provide all your evidence to prosecute the offender like normal people would?
Major DEEP STATE connections with Ford, McLean, Bromwich, Laufman, Katz, Seidman, McCabe, Comey, Bharara, Perkins Coie, FusionGPS, Schumer, Feinstein, Eshoo, etc. Who else is involved? There will be others.
Are all these connections a coincidence?
Ford was coached on voice, demeanor, dress, hair, glasses and how to testify by Monica L. McLean 24 years DOJ/FBI, et al.
Ford and others need to be investigated, prosecuted and punished to the fullest extent of the law.
Please contact your Senators and the White House. The Feds need to investigate this. This is not some wild conspiracy theory but actual links between all these individuals which cannot be by coincidence. If someone like Ford was truth seeking and wanted justice she would not have contacted far left media, far left politicians, retained far left partisan donor fundraiser activist operative lawyers and political consultants. A person seeking truth and justice retains a non partisan independent qualified experienced attorney who is not on TV 24/7 promoting political agendas and would have filed a complaint with law enforcement not asking the Senate to initiate an FBI investigation. Why did Ford's lawyer Bromwich want to know the lead FBI investigator on the supplemental investigation. Was Bromwich checking to see if he was part of the Deep State?
ACTION NOW: Please contact Congress, your Senators and the White House. Demand a Federal investigation

great article thanks for posting.
Thanks for posting...it’s an excellent article.
And she did it even while talking about mundane things having nothing to do with the alleged assault, continuing endlessly in a quivering I'm ready to break down voice.
I'll bet there are quite a number of libs who now realize they got played and are too embarrassed to admit it.
Interesting date to "vanish"
Post of the Month!
Uncountable damage has been inflicted on the world by Sig Heil Fraud.
