Here’s the latest in the ever-changing 11th-hour accusation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  Kavanaugh put out a statement strongly denying that he ever acted like a drunken lout toward his accuser, when he was a teenager 36 years ago or at any other time, and agreed to go before a televised Senate panel on Monday to answer questions, even though it delayed his confirmation vote by a week.  His accuser’s lawyer, however, now says she refuses to testify until after the FBI conducts a thorough investigation.  If one were of a suspicious mind, one might begin to suspect that the entire point of this accusation was not so much to see long-delayed justice as to delay the vote until after the November election, when Democrats hope to take over the Senate.  But we mustn't be cynical, must we?

 

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/09/19/kavanaugh-accuser-christine-blasey-ford-demands-full-investigation-by-fbi-before-testifying-in-letter-from-her-lawyers.html

 

Here are some of the problems with demanding an FBI investigation.  First, the FBI has already refused to do an investigation, and a former spokesman for the FBI told Fox News that agents there resent being put in this position.  He said the FBI’s job is to investigate federal crimes, and there is no federal crime here.  If there was any crime at all, it was a local police matter, and one that under prevailing laws at the time is far beyond the statute of limitations and involved legal minors.  He said it’s not the FBI’s job to do what a political party wants them to do (and I’d add that making a federal case out of something on TV does not actually turn it into a federal case.) 

 

https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2018/09/18/its-completely-unrealistic-gabriel-malor-weighs-in-on-kavanaugh-accusers-demand-for-an-fbi-investigation/

 

Here are some other problems with waiting around for the results of a “thorough investigation”: how can any agency possibly investigate this?  The allegation is at least 35 years old.  There’s no evidence, no contemporaneous medical records, and the alleged victim never mentioned it to anyone for over three decades, conveniently coming forth only when the accused was about to be confirmed for the Supreme Court (even those counselor’s notes from a few years ago show she never mentioned Kavanaugh’s name).  The accused, a federal judge with an impeccable reputation, strongly denies that it happened, as does the only other witness.  And the accuser can’t say how many people were in the house, or who they were, or where it was located, or the date when it happened.  Since the possible dates span from the late ‘70s to the early ‘80s, she can’t even say for sure what decade it allegedly happened.

 

Okay, let’s say you were going to investigate that.  Where would you start?  You could ask Kavanaugh’s classmates what they remember about drunken parties they might have attended in high school 36 years ago.  I’m sure that would yield some valuable information.  Or the agents could just wander around Maryland, asking random people if they saw anything suspicious sometime between 1979 and 1981. 

 

Democrats, having given up on making rational arguments for their views, have now been reduced to unsubstantiated ad hominem attacks and redefining words. In the same way that wanting to enforce long-standing, bipartisan immigration laws against criminal illegal aliens means that you “hate immigrants,” they have rallied around this latest mudball attack with an obviously coordinated PR effort to smear Kavanaugh as having been “credibly accused” of sexual assault. 

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/credibly-accused-new-gravitas/

 

As the linked article notes, words have specific meanings, and “credibly” means “easy to believe on the basis of available evidence.”  In this case, there is no evidence, available or unavailable.  But apparently, Diane Feinstein, the Democratic Senator who started all this at beyond the last minute after sitting on it for months, didn’t get the memo on the redefinition of “credibly” because in a weak moment, she let it slip out that “I can’t say everything’s truthful.”

 

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/09/18/feinstein-blames-gop-after-kavanaugh-accuser-stays-mum-admits-cant-say-everythings-truthful.html

 

You know we’re through the looking glass when the first honest thing a Democratic Senator has said since these confirmation hearings began is that she can’t verify that everything’s truthful, and then she immediately tries to take that back.

 

In the meantime, there are some political analysts insisting that the Republicans have to go along with this call for a full FBI investigation because if they don’t, furious women will turn against them in huge numbers in November.  Frankly, I think that’s insulting to women.  I believe the vast majority of women are plenty smart enough to understand that you should take all genuinely credible accusations of sexual assault seriously, but that to allow a decades-old, unverifiable, politically-motived accusation that can’t be refuted to destroy a man’s reputation and career would unleash a partisan weapon that could easily be turned against their own husbands and sons. 

 

Since some liberal politicians are claiming that men shouldn’t even be allowed to talk about situations in which men might be falsely accused of sex crimes (an interesting argument, considering they have also urged judicial reforms to prevent innocent people, particularly black men, from being railroaded into prison), I will turn you over to Nina Bookout at the Victory Girls blog, who makes the case for due process and the right to self-defense for all from a woman's point of view.  

 

http://victorygirlsblog.com/no-senator-hirono-men-should-not-shut-up-about-christine-blasey-ford-video/

 

Laura Ingraham is also a woman who has a suggestion for dealing with this.  How about hearing her out?

Meanwhile, Brett Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley gave a fantastic demonstration of class in the face of crass.  I hope those cupcakes were hard for those reporters to choke down along with all the shame they should be feeling for stalking Kavanaugh’s family.

    Please, please, please go forward with hearings giving the poor lady a chance to testify and if she refuses so be it she had a chance. No FBI investigation. It is not a federal crime and the FBI has to work on more "dossiers." Judge Thomas has performed exemplary on the SCOTUS and so will Judge Kavanaugh.

    It has become the liberals agenda if they can not get their way in opposing someone (anyone that disagrees with them) then the next step is to find a liberal woman who just doesn't care about herself so she spreads lies. 36 years and no reports before and 6 FBI investigations and incident was not found, somehow just makes me and the rest of the Nation believe anything coming from the Demorats is a LIE. BUT the main reason this is upsetting is the GOP is just litting it go on with no statements from the SUPPOSEDLY leaders.

    Professor Ford has accused Judge Kavanaugh of behavior for which she cannot offer any evidence, let alone a time and a place for the alleged act. The Democrats expect everyone to accept Ford's word without substantiation and without enough information that would allow Kavanaugh to specifically refute the charge. So, now she wants the FBI to investigate with the hope the agency will create a case for her. How convenient! We have already seen enough misuse of the FBI for fabricated accusations with substantiation. She might have experienced an unfortunate act, but was it actually Kavanaugh? What was her state of mind at the time?

  • John Clark

    09/19/2018 10:47 AM

    There is the same old pattern here concerning the accusations against Kavanaugh. Someone waits for just the right moment to throw dirt about something that happened a long time ago in the past. Then the Dems pick up on it as their golden moment to use to block something they don't want. How many times has this happened in the past? Too many. If the Dems had any objectivity about this at all they would see this for what it is and not allow it to block or delay the confirmation process. Besides, how many of them might have something in their past 35 years ago that would potentially disqualify them from taking a public office? And in the words of Jesus: "Let the person who is without sin cast the first stone."

    How interesting that these shifty liberal Democrats are resorting to an inappropriate Federal agency whose corruption and bias has been highlighted over the last year and that this requested investigation would also be outside the purview of this agencies tasked responsibility to oversee. It's kind of like the Manifourt trials being conducted outside the purview of a securities fraud court by the Meuller team. These people have no shame.
    Seems to me that these Democrats are admitting the obvious bias and corruption of the FBI by choosing them to investigate this ACCUSATION as their inappropriate "go-to" attack dog. How obvious!

    I attended parties in high school where others were drinking. Yes, things always happen that shouldn't (like high schoolers drinking). My point is, when I think back on these parties, I can't remember much about them, other than being there, and I was sober. Some of the memories I do have are slightly (sometimes not so slightly) different from how others remember them. I've only been out of high school 25 years, by the time I reach the 46 year mark, I'll be happy to remember anything I did that long ago. I admit it is possible that two boys (children who medically, scientifically and socially are proven to be rationally deficient) may have done what she claims. There is no rational person in this world who would think that such a vague, unsubstantiated, validly contested claim could be anything other than political stonewalling. Our fore fathers made concessions for most situations, but even they could not predict or prevent this immature behavior among this nation's leaders.

    Shame on Mrs. Ford's parents for allowing a 15 year old to attend a "house party" to begin with. And if Mrs. Ford were to say she lied to her parents about where she was spending the weekend, then there you go. Investigation would be over with over in a matter of minutes.

    Kavanaugh's accuser, Dr. Christine Ford, sent a secret letter
    to Sen. Feinstein detailing sexual assault 36 years ago.
    Initially, she insisted on remaining anonymous, but she, for some reason,
    took a lie detector test, the results of which are not known.
    Next she talks to the Washington Post, Trump's enemy.
    Then she hires a high priced lawyer, paid for by whom?
    Finally she comes forward, citing it is her civic duty
    to let the world know what happened to her when she was
    about 15 or 16 (can't remember exactly).
    Now that she is threatened to tell her story, under oath,
    she suddenly disappears. Her lawyer won't respond to inquiries.
    Even Feinstein is wavering about the validity of her story.
    Frankly, I think this an attempted hatchet job by the DSA,
    (Democrat Socialist Assn), trying to ruin a good person's life.
    It is the same MO used to destroy Roy Moore in Mississippi.
    last year.

  • Beth Hay

    It's always the same with the demoncrats. When they don't get their way, they start accusing of something sexual. Is that all they think about? I hope that in the future when there is someone up for nomination for whatever, Trump or whoever is in power will be proactive and start out with a tweet saying be prepared because the obstructionist/destructionist party is going to accuse the nominee of something having to do with sex. Sickos.

    Mike ,I have the utmost admiration for you. It saddens me to say that I never would think this would happen in my lifetime(I'm 63 and retired)but unless something dramatically changes we will have another bloody revolution in this country .Maybe we need some sort of purge I don't know .

    Mike, I’m getting pretty tired of being “punched on” by the left and not getting to punch back. I’d really like President Trump to start fighting back. Surely he can order the FBI to leave off of something that’s not in the FBI’s jurisdiction? I guess I just want to see my champion start swinging.

    I attended parties in high school where others were drinking. Yes, things always happen that shouldn't (like high schoolers drinking). My point is, when I think back on these parties, I can't remember much about them, other than being there, and I was sober. Some of the memories I do have are slightly (sometimes not so slightly) different from how others remember them. I've only been out of high school 25 years, by the time I reach the 46 year mark, I'll be happy to remember anything I did that long ago. I admit it is possible that two boys (children who medically, scientifically and socially are proven to be rationally deficient) may have done what she claims. There is no rational person in this world who would think that such a vague, unsubstantiated, validly contested claim could be anything other than political stonewalling. Our fore fathers made concessions for most situations, but even they could not predict or prevent this immature behavior among this nation's leaders.

    Shame on Mrs. Ford's parents for allowing a 15 year old to attend a "house party" to begin with. And if Mrs. Ford were to say she lied to her parents about where she was spending the weekend, then there you go. Investigation would be over with over in a matter of minutes.

    Every time I think the Democrats can sink to a new all time low that go deeper. I don't know why this is a surprise especially since the Democrat core value is baby murder and this woman is a radical leftist Women's March nut job, why does she care to be a martyr for baby murder.

    Now she doesn't want to sit at the same table. what does that say about her? I read your new letter every day.

    Kavanaugh's accuser, Dr. Christine Ford, sent a secret letter
    to Sen. Feinstein detailing sexual assault 36 years ago.
    Initially, she insisted on remaining anonymous, but she, for some reason,
    took a lie detector test, the results of which are not known.
    Next she talks to the Washington Post, Trump's enemy.
    Then she hires a high priced lawyer, paid for by whom?
    Finally she comes forward, citing it is her civic duty
    to let the world know what happened to her when she was
    about 15 or 16 (can't remember exactly).
    Now that she is threatened to tell her story, under oath,
    she suddenly disappears. Her lawyer won't respond to inquiries.
    Even Feinstein is wavering about the validity of her story.
    Frankly, I think this an attempted hatchet job by the DSA,
    (Democrat Socialist Assn), trying to ruin a good person's life.
    It is the same MO used to destroy Roy Moore in Mississippi.
    last year.

    This is just evil. How dare the demorats do this to this great man and his family. All about their power and greed. The republicans must vote him into the Supreme court next week. If they allow this crap to derail Brett, then our democratic republic and constitution is finished. I am so angry with left and their tricks and evil ways. Keep praying and lets all vote the demorats out.

  • Beth Hay

    09/19/2018 09:20 AM

    It's always the same with the demoncrats. When they don't get their way, they start accusing of something sexual. Is that all they think about? I hope that in the future when there is someone up for nomination for whatever, Trump or whoever is in power will be proactive and start out with a tweet saying be prepared because the obstructionist/destructionist party is going to accuse the nominee of something having to do with sex. Sickos.

Here’s the latest in the ever-changing 11th-hour accusation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  Kavanaugh put out a statement strongly denying that he ever acted like a drunken lout toward his accuser, when he was a teenager 36 years ago or at any other time, and agreed to go before a televised Senate panel on Monday to answer questions, even though it delayed his confirmation vote by a week.  His accuser’s lawyer, however, now says she refuses to testify until after the FBI conducts a thorough investigation.  If one were of a suspicious mind, one might begin to suspect that the entire point of this accusation was not so much to see long-delayed justice as to delay the vote until after the November election, when Democrats hope to take over the Senate.  But we mustn't be cynical, must we?

 

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/09/19/kavanaugh-accuser-christine-blasey-ford-demands-full-investigation-by-fbi-before-testifying-in-letter-from-her-lawyers.html

 

Here are some of the problems with demanding an FBI investigation.  First, the FBI has already refused to do an investigation, and a former spokesman for the FBI told Fox News that agents there resent being put in this position.  He said the FBI’s job is to investigate federal crimes, and there is no federal crime here.  If there was any crime at all, it was a local police matter, and one that under prevailing laws at the time is far beyond the statute of limitations and involved legal minors.  He said it’s not the FBI’s job to do what a political party wants them to do (and I’d add that making a federal case out of something on TV does not actually turn it into a federal case.) 

 

https://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2018/09/18/its-completely-unrealistic-gabriel-malor-weighs-in-on-kavanaugh-accusers-demand-for-an-fbi-investigation/

 

Here are some other problems with waiting around for the results of a “thorough investigation”: how can any agency possibly investigate this?  The allegation is at least 35 years old.  There’s no evidence, no contemporaneous medical records, and the alleged victim never mentioned it to anyone for over three decades, conveniently coming forth only when the accused was about to be confirmed for the Supreme Court (even those counselor’s notes from a few years ago show she never mentioned Kavanaugh’s name).  The accused, a federal judge with an impeccable reputation, strongly denies that it happened, as does the only other witness.  And the accuser can’t say how many people were in the house, or who they were, or where it was located, or the date when it happened.  Since the possible dates span from the late ‘70s to the early ‘80s, she can’t even say for sure what decade it allegedly happened.

 

Okay, let’s say you were going to investigate that.  Where would you start?  You could ask Kavanaugh’s classmates what they remember about drunken parties they might have attended in high school 36 years ago.  I’m sure that would yield some valuable information.  Or the agents could just wander around Maryland, asking random people if they saw anything suspicious sometime between 1979 and 1981. 

 

Democrats, having given up on making rational arguments for their views, have now been reduced to unsubstantiated ad hominem attacks and redefining words. In the same way that wanting to enforce long-standing, bipartisan immigration laws against criminal illegal aliens means that you “hate immigrants,” they have rallied around this latest mudball attack with an obviously coordinated PR effort to smear Kavanaugh as having been “credibly accused” of sexual assault. 

 

https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/credibly-accused-new-gravitas/

 

As the linked article notes, words have specific meanings, and “credibly” means “easy to believe on the basis of available evidence.”  In this case, there is no evidence, available or unavailable.  But apparently, Diane Feinstein, the Democratic Senator who started all this at beyond the last minute after sitting on it for months, didn’t get the memo on the redefinition of “credibly” because in a weak moment, she let it slip out that “I can’t say everything’s truthful.”

 

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/09/18/feinstein-blames-gop-after-kavanaugh-accuser-stays-mum-admits-cant-say-everythings-truthful.html

 

You know we’re through the looking glass when the first honest thing a Democratic Senator has said since these confirmation hearings began is that she can’t verify that everything’s truthful, and then she immediately tries to take that back.

 

In the meantime, there are some political analysts insisting that the Republicans have to go along with this call for a full FBI investigation because if they don’t, furious women will turn against them in huge numbers in November.  Frankly, I think that’s insulting to women.  I believe the vast majority of women are plenty smart enough to understand that you should take all genuinely credible accusations of sexual assault seriously, but that to allow a decades-old, unverifiable, politically-motived accusation that can’t be refuted to destroy a man’s reputation and career would unleash a partisan weapon that could easily be turned against their own husbands and sons. 

 

Since some liberal politicians are claiming that men shouldn’t even be allowed to talk about situations in which men might be falsely accused of sex crimes (an interesting argument, considering they have also urged judicial reforms to prevent innocent people, particularly black men, from being railroaded into prison), I will turn you over to Nina Bookout at the Victory Girls blog, who makes the case for due process and the right to self-defense for all from a woman's point of view.  

 

http://victorygirlsblog.com/no-senator-hirono-men-should-not-shut-up-about-christine-blasey-ford-video/

 

Laura Ingraham is also a woman who has a suggestion for dealing with this.  How about hearing her out?

 

https://twitchy.com/dougp-3137/2018/09/18/laura-ingraham-suggests-a-no-circus-solution-for-senate-to-hear-kavanaughs-accuser-that-dems-will-not-like/

 

Meanwhile, Brett Kavanaugh’s wife Ashley gave a fantastic demonstration of class in the face of crass.  I hope those cupcakes were hard for those reporters to choke down along with all the shame they should be feeling for stalking Kavanaugh’s family.

 

https://twitchy.com/sarahd-313035/2018/09/18/class-act-brett-kavanaughs-wife-just-put-the-media-to-shame-and-did-it-with-a-smile/

    Please, please, please go forward with hearings giving the poor lady a chance to testify and if she refuses so be it she had a chance. No FBI investigation. It is not a federal crime and the FBI has to work on more "dossiers." Judge Thomas has performed exemplary on the SCOTUS and so will Judge Kavanaugh.

  • Mac Moody

    09/19/2018 11:32 AM

    It has become the liberals agenda if they can not get their way in opposing someone (anyone that disagrees with them) then the next step is to find a liberal woman who just doesn't care about herself so she spreads lies. 36 years and no reports before and 6 FBI investigations and incident was not found, somehow just makes me and the rest of the Nation believe anything coming from the Demorats is a LIE. BUT the main reason this is upsetting is the GOP is just litting it go on with no statements from the SUPPOSEDLY leaders. Please understand I think that the top leaders McConnell and Ryan (and the buddies) are letting the Nation down. The GOP is making the base extremely mad because of the RYAN debacle

  • Tom Williams

    Professor Ford has accused Judge Kavanaugh of behavior for which she cannot offer any evidence, let alone a time and a place for the alleged act. The Democrats expect everyone to accept Ford's word without substantiation and without enough information that would allow Kavanaugh to specifically refute the charge. So, now she wants the FBI to investigate with the hope the agency will create a case for her. How convenient! We have already seen enough misuse of the FBI for fabricated accusations with substantiation. She might have experienced an unfortunate act, but was it actually Kavanaugh? What was her state of mind at the time?

  • John Clark

    09/19/2018 10:47 AM

    There is the same old pattern here concerning the accusations against Kavanaugh. Someone waits for just the right moment to throw dirt about something that happened a long time ago in the past. Then the Dems pick up on it as their golden moment to use to block something they don't want. How many times has this happened in the past? Too many. If the Dems had any objectivity about this at all they would see this for what it is and not allow it to block or delay the confirmation process. Besides, how many of them might have something in their past 35 years ago that would potentially disqualify them from taking a public office? And in the words of Jesus: "Let the person who is without sin cast the first stone."

    How interesting that these shifty liberal Democrats are resorting to an inappropriate Federal agency whose corruption and bias has been highlighted over the last year and that this requested investigation would also be outside the purview of this agencies tasked responsibility to oversee. It's kind of like the Manifourt trials being conducted outside the purview of a securities fraud court by the Meuller team. These people have no shame.
    Seems to me that these Democrats are admitting the obvious bias and corruption of the FBI by choosing them to investigate this ACCUSATION as their inappropriate "go-to" attack dog. How obvious!

    I think this little charade does more to hurt women than people think. It demeans those who have actually been abused.

I am ashamed that our country has stooped to this level of attacks.
