Dr. Ford's own study on hypnosis and memories tarnishes her testimony

"You're getting veeery sleepy…"

Feeling hypnotized yet? If so, you may be able to retrieve some memories. Maybe even traumatic memories.

I don't mean to make light of traumatic experiences. But memories are different – they're very fickle, tricky things. We don't remember things nearly as accurately as we think we do.

Since digging up every word Brett Kavanaugh has ever uttered is now an urgent, national priority, some have decided to do the same with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. It turns out Dr. Ford co-authored a study in 2008 that cites hypnosis as a way to "assist in the retrieval of important memories."

The study also used "self-hypnosis" in treating patients. I didn't even know self-hypnosis was possible.

Dr. Ford's study references a separate study on hypnosis which found that, "Patients are highly suggestible and easily subject to memory contamination."

Whoa, whoa, wait a minute. You mean memories can be contaminated? Even when using hypnosis? Because I thought Dr. Ford's testimony last Thursday was "her truth." It wasn't necessarily the truth, but it was her truth – which according to Senate Democrats carries more weight.

We don't know whether Dr. Ford used hypnotic therapy on herself, nor whether her therapists used it, because her lawyers refuse to provide the Senate with detailed notes from her therapists. However, the shifting details of her story as she tells it definitely indicates some memory contamination (to put it mildly).

Ford told the Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh attacked her in 1982 when she was 15. But she supposedly showed some of her therapy notes to The Washington Post and their exclusive story described the incident as "a rape attempt in her late teens." And in her initial text to The Post, Ford said the attack happened in the mid-80s, which would've meant Kavanaugh was in college.

One thing is clear – with or without hypnosis, "her truth" is much easier to arrive at than the truth.

So, which one is the real time frame? During her testimony, Ford seemed to be trying to distract from her timeline discrepancies by repeatedly saying it would help if we could find out when Mark Judge worked at Safeway. As if the whole case rested on that.

One thing is clear – with or without hypnosis, "her truth" is much easier to arrive at than the truth.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
