me+ME: "That's Our Judy!"



Just a few bits that extend yesterday's

ME: WPI vs Mikovits - documents in the case: update

in documentation and illustration of a point.

As I have remarked before, Phoenix Rising is quaintly quiet about Our Judy, and so is the forum the owner do not allow me to see, I am informed, and the main reason is this instruction from on high, that has been circulating for some days on forums and Facebook-sites and such:

To all friends of Dr. Judy and the science research:

Good news! Bail has been granted and Judy will be out in a few hours. We are currently negotiating for a just agreement between all parties in these recent events. Although your actions may be well intentioned, it is actually disruptive to the process for numerous blogs and messages to go out that are inflammatory. Pease use you energy to pray and ask for a peaceful resolution.

David Nolde
husband of Dr. Judy Mikovits

Permission is given to repost this message.

I note "friends of (..) the science research" and miss "and theft"; I note "a just agreement" and miss "get the best deal for returning the stolen properties"; I note "may be well intentioned" and miss "if you're not the evil WPI or the evil ERV "; I note "it is actually disruptive .. messages to go out that are inflammatory" and miss "this message is part of the deal"; I note "Pease" and "use you energy" and miss irony marks; I note "pray" and miss "only God can save Her"; and I note "a peaceful resolution" and miss outspoken awareness that his praying person may start praying Our Judy will not get to prison.

But then I was just trying to make sense, and I may be missing relevant information.

It does explain why the forums for patients with ME/CFS are quaintly quiet about Our Judy, as does this point - and I do repeat, but it is relevant: It makes much sense to consider much that is currently happening around dr. Mikovits on forums for patients as a Real Life Cognitive Dissonance Experiment:

Cognitive Dissonance
When Prophecy Fails
Pseudoscience

For example... here is from the forums I am not allowed to see, from yesterday, a beautiful thought (or two or three) about a beautiful thought of Our Judy. Read and start glowing inside:

Allspice 321

I have been given permission to tell everyone that although Judy is going through so much herself right now, she has taken out the time to get her husband to email Jacqueline Mc Gorrigan to inform her that she (Judy) would be sending nutrients over to Ireland for Andrew. Can you imagine her thinking of Andrew right now? I know I can. This is so typical of her kindness.

You see? Even in prison Our Judy is constantly thinking of Our Community! Of doing good! Of helping others! And that even "although Judy is going through so much herself right now"! Verily!

Then again, the flock has been instructed and starts bleating:

Sweatpea 

Allspice, I know you mean well, but I don't think everything Judy does should be published. Please rethink this.

Our Leader Patricia Carter aka Wildaisy, the prophetess of Our Judy And HRMV, will have none of it:

Wildaisy

Allspice, I see absolutely nothing wrong with posting this on the forum.

I also think Dr. Mikovits has shown again and again how much she cares for everyone, and I think it is important to notice this.

Yes, "she cares for everyone", Whittemores, Pfosts, patients, and all, does Our Judy. Verily! It all reads like Samuel Beckett or Ionesco, and indeed, after a little to and fro we have some heartfelt words of truth, and it's a fact that I'd also seen Allspice's inspiring report of Our Judy's great goodness on ERV's blog:

Sweetpea

YOU get real Wildaisy!!! YOU are an IDIOT!! Someone has already put the above on ERV's blog!!! I KNEW that would happen - it will be plenty of other places as well. If you think for one minute that Judy's unconventional ways are going to be seen as a big heart by everyone you are even more STUPID than I EVER imagined!! I'm so MAD at you I could SPIT!! YOU are too damn stupid for words!!!

Moving the information to the non-public area doesn't help anything!!!!!!! THERE ARE PEOPLE TRYING TO HURT JUDY AND HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME - THEY WILL REGISTER AS MEMBERS OF ANY FORUM. GOD YOU ARE STUPID!!

YOU have made me physically ill. I know that makes you happy!

Not me, Sweetpea! It made me laugh! Thank you!

As to laughing matters: There is this, also picked up via ERV's blog and from a web-publication that belongs to Stanford University, calls itself "Californiality", and wrote an article with this title and link

Judy Mikovits Arrest Shocks Scientists

from which I quote this most enticing terminal bit:

                Scientific Rock Star Crucified

Initially, Dr. Judy Mikovits was riding high atop a building wave of fame after publishing one of the hottest papers of the year in one of the world's premier scientific publications.

Her findings were celebrated as a breakthrough for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, an illness that had perplexed researchers for many years.  Dr. Mikovits was invited to speak at scientific conferences worldwide and treated as royalty.

Today, stunned observers wonder why the 53-year-old revolutionary scientist was forced to piss next to a mat in a Santa Paula jail cell surrounded by gang members, accused of being a felony-level criminal.

This afternoon, Mikovits was transferred to the Ventura County Main Jail in Ventura, then appeared for a hearing on extraditing her to Nevada.  She posted bail and was released a few hours later.

Her next court date before a Ventura County judge has been scheduled:

December 19, 2011
1:30 PM Pacific Time
Court Room #13
Ventura County Superior Court
800 South Victoria Avenue
Ventura, California

All interested parties are urged to attend what is sure to be an informative hearing on a case that continuously grows in mystery, intrigue and questions regarding the motives of numerous parties.

Did the celebrated scientist find out too much through her research, perhaps? 

Did she, who stands accused of conspiracy, actually stumble upon a broader conspiracy that became threatened by the findings of Dr. Judy Mikovits?

Did she also find the cause of psi? And the secret of the universe? And is it really HGRV, after all?... I am just carrying on the satire, as also may be this contributor to dr. Jamie's blog:

for me *right now*, i am honoring judy's husband request, about keeping our big fat mouths shut !1:):)

What is behind this....will blow our minds !
But The.."TRUTH SHALL Prevail"

May "WE' send Lots of Prayer's, Spiritual Meditations,Our Lights....whatever it is for you,
to ALL involed in this 'drama' & May,..Truth & Peace,& be the outcome.

dr. judy........." You are Loved Greatly"
marie

As to sending "Lots of Prayer's, Spiritual Meditations,Our Lights....": Here is why and how Our Judy was saved, or at least could be bailed out, also from Her friend Dr. Jamie's Blog:

kkrizani said...

I would like to extend an invitation to anyone inclined to join me at 1:30pm Pacific time (or a few minutes before)on Tuesday.

This is something we can do as a community that doesn't rely on anything but intention. It is something we can DO, that can pull like-minded people in the patient community together. The nay-sayers will, well, nay say, but this is very powerful work and I think anyone who chooses to participate will feel good about it. Anyone who has participated in community prayer or meditation knows exactly what I'm suggesting here.

At 1:30pm Pacific (and if you're in a different time zone it is a quick Google to find out what it is in yours) I intend to sit down, center and focus. I will then fill that courtroom with the highest Light, with the intention that what will happen will be the Highest Probability.

It matters more that you are centered and focused than the length of time you can do this. Even a few seconds in a very centered state is just as effective as longer but more scattered. What is critical is a joining of hands, so to speak, and holding for all we are worth for the Highest Probability.

The reason that I will keep it quite non-specific is that "Highest Probability" broadens the canvas to allow the highest good and highest Light to manifest - perhaps in ways we could not have imagined and better as well as from completely unexpected directions. Results may not be immediately visible, but rest assured that this is not a trivial thing and will be a very strong influence on the course of events.

I intend to see that courtroom just stuffed with the best and brightest Light that I can muster.

I can muster quite a bright Light, I think, and anyone who joins will increase that by orders of magnitude.

Remember, he of the Highest Light wins! Wanna play?

Anyway....

There's lots of stuff for those who want to get a Ph.D. on cognitive dissonance. Check out

Both were given some well deserved praise and thanks in the comments, meanwhile, as you may find.
