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.

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.

    Christine Blasey Ford ( Santa Cruz Surfer) is a paid researcher for Corcept a mental health drugs / abortion pill company.
    Christine Blasey Ford, whose middle name is Margaret, is known as “Blasey CM” on the science papers she’s published with Corcept Therapeutics.
    Blasey is also engaged in Big Pharma’s pursuit to push more drugs for mental health disorders.
    Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey exposed for ties to Big Pharma abortion pill maker… effort to derail Kavanaugh is plot to protect abortion industry profits.
    Corcept Therapeutics, Inc., a $166 billion market cap company (stock symbol CORT) reportedly has current annual sales of $216 million. The company offers just one drug, mifepristone, which is widely known as an “abortion pill” or RU-486.
    If Kavanaugh were to be confirmed on the U.S. Supreme Court and be part of a decision that overturns Roe vs. Wade, it would make the prescribing of Corcept’s drug for abortion illegal, directly impacting the bottom line profits of the company for which Christine Blasey works.
    Christine Blasey Ford, whose middle name is Margaret, is known as “Blasey CM” on the science papers she’s published with Corcept Therapeutics.
    Before going public with her baseless accusations against Brett Kavanaugh, Christine Blasey scrubbed her internet history, removing her Linked In pages and even managing to have her entire high school year book completely removed from the internet. (Natural News has now posted the recovered yearbook files at this link – PDF.) As InfoWars reports, the high school yearbook of Christine Blasey is full of accounts of wild, drunken sex parties attended by Blasey and others.
    What’s clear is that Corcept is working to aggressively expand the approved uses of its drug, obviously in an effort to increase prescriptions and profits.
    Now the truth comes out: Blasey is a paid researcher for an abortion pill company with a lot to lose if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Now we know why Blasey’s accusation against Kavanaugh is so out of character for Kavanaugh: Because Blasey has a financial motivation to defeat Kavanaugh and keep him off the U.S. Supreme Court.
    Share this story. All Americans need to know the truth about Christine Blasey and her ties to this abortion pill drug company. Now the true motivation is clear. Democrats and Big Pharma are trying to block a supremely qualified Supreme Court nominee for their own dishonest reasons, and they have come up with a completely baseless, desperate allegation as a last-ditch “Hail Mary” effort to overrule the country even when they lost the election.

    P.S. This is only part of an article. Please contact me for the entire article. I thought it was important to get this out.
    Thank you. Tita

    Dear Mike,
    What the liberals are doing here is beyond despicable. It is disgusting and dangerous. And let's be 100% honest, this isn't about abuse of anyone - it is about the democrats abuse of power and Trump Derangement Syndrome. This never happened, the person making the claims is a die hard liberal herself and is doing this for two reasons: money and to try to derail this nomination because the liberals lost the election and they cant get over it and the President is about to seat the most accomplished, qualified, consistent, honest man to defend the Constitutional rights of ALL Americans while applying it - as written - to any cases coming before the SCOTUS.
    So traumatized? Nonsense - nothing ever happened and what the democrats in the Senate are doing is indefensible, is an embarrassment to the Senate and the country, and we the voters, the people THEY WORK FOR - WE MUST VOTE THEM ALL OUT OF OFFICE. NEVER AGAIN LET THEM HAVE POWER OVER US AND OUR COUNTRY. NEVER!

    I am so discusted with this whole zoo of wild animals attacking Judge Kavenaugh. This is nothing but more delay tactics to hold up his appointment to the supreme court. I dont believe one thing from this woman. She can't remember anything about the alledged incident other than the name of the person she is accusing. REALLY? With no more info than that, how could anyone investigate. I've never seen anything so obsurd, but the left is using the same thing they did on Roy Moore, but he didn't have time before his election to debunk the accusations giving the left a win. This is a very dangerous presedent. No male will be able to win if the left doesn't want them to win.

    1. The FBI has always performed back ground checks NOT criminal investigations.
    2. It’s tbe role of the Senate to advise and consent.
    3. If the accuser is telling the truth (which is highly unlikely) why dose she refuse to talk with the committee
    4. she is a radical leftist democrat
    5. The incident if it happen was when Kavanaugh was 17 which would not be grounds for criminal investigation

    This is an obvious odious vile typical leftist Democrat hit job to defend baby murder

    I think Ford knows that this is not something that the FBI investigates so this is why she is demanding they investigate this before she will testify or consent to be questioned.

    When the FBI comes back with *we will not investigate*, she now has a *reason* to say NO to being questioned.

    To borrow a comment said on one of the Jurassic Park movies, "clever girl".

    I DO hope a PI will or can be hired to investigate HER from her HS days & beyond to see what kind of a person she was during all those years, how she acted with others, who she dated, what she said or did, so her credibility can be scrutinized!

    It's a shame that as responsible adults we are not acting responsible. It's unfortunate that this man who's reputation is at stake along with his lively hood that his young children are being subjected to this. It is bad enough that his lovely wife has to endure this but his children shouldn't. These people who have relentlessly questioned this man about everything that has nothing to do with his acting as a judge on the Supreme Court have no scrouples. It is not just his children witnessing grown adults acting as though their crap don't stink but all young teens and young adults are seeing this happening. Too beat all if the roles were reversed this kind of thing wouldn't dare happen to one of them.
    They must be so proud of themselves to put a person of his stature on display in front of everyone just to show everyone what they can do to a person who doesn't agree with their politics. This is a man of kindness, respectfulness, integrity, and a person who judges according to the Constitution. It's disheartening to know that Bill Clinton got away with his antics before, during and after the WH yet these people bow before him and his wife as though he has done nothing wrong.
    I hope for Kavanaugh and our country's sake that they go through with tomorrow's vote of his acceptance into the Supreme Court. No matter how much the Republicans try to appease the Demon Rats they will not be pleased until they have total and complete control over all of us. If it were up to them George Soros would be our Dictator and not just a President over the US.
    We also would not be a Nation without our borders and there would no longer be a Constitution. All of those who have fought and or died for our freedom would have done so in vane.
    I thank you for your strength in God and for your reporting of the actual truth. With God's help we can all get through this and keep our country a country with the freedom we deserve.

I am 71 years old and was abused at 17 years old at the place I worked. I can tell you everything about it. I do not believe her, it is a stall by the Dems and I am really sick and tired of there tactics.

    I can not believe how many cowards we have in the Republican Party. How they can allow some woman to stop the confirmation of a man that will be an excellent Supreme Court Justise without any effidence is just unbelievable. If this woman will not testify, the confirmation should take place now. I am almost ashamed to be a woman today. Women are now willing to lie, cheat and commit crimes to get what they want. It is horrifying.

    Dear Governor Huckabee, I wrote to one of my Senators, Claire McCaskill, asking if this is how Washington and the Democrats now operate. Point a finger, accuse with no evidence after 35 years and indict. What happened to the presumption of innocence? Doubtful I will get any response. I can't even begin to explain how disgusted I am with this upside down crazy antics status in Washington from the likes of Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, etc. These are the same people that ignored Bill Clinton's bad actions and won't look at Kieth Ellison's troubles. Why is Hillary Clinton even telling the country to wait 2 weeks for an investigation; why can't she just go back to the woods and remain silent? After she lost for a second time I was really hoping to never hear anything from her again.

    The real problem with this is not the Dems but the Republicans that do not support our elected President. Get Collins, Flake, Gardner, Graham, and Heller replaced and things could move forward. Why would we not work on that? Also, in Texas, all over the TV is Beto ads, never do I see a Cruz except on FB. Has the Republican party deserted him? If so, why?

    Governor, As a 67 yo woman who has been raped, and sexually abused, as a child and early adult years, I REMEMBER every bit of action that occurred. Myself, personally have never come forward or pressed charges in that, back in the 70's a female was usually thought to be the cause and result of their own actions. (We hitch-hiked, we smoked, we drank, and we wore improper clothes) We were rebellious and most men were insecure about our independence. With that said, After many years, of self-counseling, reading, and open discussions with friends of both sexes. I have accepted my part of the action without shame, nor do I blame the male counterparts. I am NOT bitter, but I am much wiser. I am at peace with myself and ACCEPT it for what it is. I do not support the Women's Hate group (the women's march for whatever it was they were marching for. AND most important, I would not ruin any one's reputation, or credibility for political gain. This women supposedly went to counseling, obviously it did not resolved her issues. As a female, I truly believe she needs to look within herself (honestly and with an open mind) and define herself individually. Finally, I support Judge Kavenaugh and believe him. I hope and pray that the Republicans do not back down and continue forward with the vote.

    As someone who was accosted as a teenager by another who had been a friend for a few years, you don’t forget! I remember everything that happened when I was almost pushed into the back of a van, because it was shocking. The fact this woman can’t recall and stand by the facts leaves me highly doubting her story/stories. The rest of what has come out about their families only makes matters worse. It’s Roy Moore all over again! The criminals in D.C. don’t have a new gig??

    This is really sick of the Democrats to pull the garbage. This makes credibility of real incidents less believable and they are the ones trying to push the #metoo movement. When we go look, it's a majority of Democrats and their supporters who are abusive towards others sexually. And here we see it again, a group of Democrats, using an alleged event in a supporter's life, putting in national media, accusing a Good Man to bring him down and not caring about the effects on the supposed victim or others who are real victims that will now hide real attacks because of this.

    We need to make those in power that held onto this information until the last minute pay for the damage for the delays and when found false, all involved from the top down need to be held accountable. There are too many times false accusations ruin the lives of honest people and the accusers get away with it or get rewarded. I had it happen to me, due to the unhanded dealings of the union that was representing me in my case.

It really amazes me, how many women will step forward and ruin their reputation with an accusation of a non act or a never can be proved or disproved, to assist the democrat party (it is the Party of the Democrat, not the democratic party, nothing democratic about the way they conduct business.

    I feel she is being PAID to bring all of this up at this time. Democrats are good doing what they can to not agree with anything or anyone that President Trump wants done. They just want to delay this whole thing until Nov. I am really tired of all of the Democrats tricks they try to pull. I can't imagine anyone wanting to be associated with this party. They just don't look at the whole picture. President Trump has done so much for this country and Dem know it and just can't stand it. I sure hope Nov election goes well. We will be out of the country that day but intend to vote absentee, just like we did in 2016. Thank you, Hope I didn't say too much but this is how I feel.
