The Accidental Hypnotist

May the Trance Be With You! A 21st Century Look at Hypnosis

(SALEM, Ore.) - mind reading posterMost people have two sides. One side is like a rainbow. This quality allows us see both sides of an argument. This is what gives us the ability to make fine distinctions, to reason and reflect as well as create poetry and art. It is a peacemaker.

The other side is binary: yin and yang, hot and cold, black and white. It’s powered by emotion: anger, love, hate and fear. It’s irrational. It’s the quality that makes us blindly loyal to our country or to a silly sports team. It’s what drives men to seek justice. This may be thought of as stubbornness or determination. We’re going to use hypnosis to control it for our purposes.

John Yoo and The Senate Torture Report

John Choon Yoo, aka John Yoo, authored the Torture Memos used to justify torture of human beings by the Bush Administration.

(SAN FRANCISCO) - Professor John Yoo stepped away from his lectern at the UC Berkeley School of Law to send an e-mail to the San Francisco Chronicle criticizing the forthcoming Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) torture report saying that if "torture was used and it didn't work, she [Senator Dianne Feinstein] is flat wrong." Yoo claimed the report failed to maintain "bipartisanship" that "will undermine its conclusions."

I suspect that this is a preemptive attack by Yoo as the release of the Senate torture report will probably place Yoo on the hotseat again. The SSCI Torture report has been approved for public release. However, the SSCI and the CIA are fighting over the CIA's substantial redactions to the torture report summary.
