Kavanaugh hearing confirms the existence of the Deep State


Bob Livingston writes an editorial type piece drawing various associations displaying the existence of a Deep State in American government all related to the public view of the Blasey-Ford/Kavanaugh hearings.

 

Livingston pulls no punches. Livingston goes further in some credible speculation showing a GOP Establishment involvement in this clandestine Deep State that even implicates now Associate Justice Kavanaugh due to some past questionable extra-legal actions. Actions that by the way raised eyebrows in a minority of Conservative pundits questioning Kavanaugh’s Originalist credentials. Privately I pray those pundits are wrong pertaining to the level of Kavanaugh’s Originalism. Only time will reveal the accuracy of Conservative suspicions.

 

Read the Livingston piece and draw your own conclusions.

Kavanaugh hearing confirms the existence of the Deep State

 

By Bob Livingston – Editor, The Bob Livingston Letter™

Personal Liberty

 

KAVANAUGH-HEARINGS-Swearing In

 

The Kabuki act that was the confirmation process of Brett Kavanaugh revealed something far more important than that underaged children of privilege growing up in the shadows of the District of Criminals were undisciplined and regularly engaged in parent-endorsed, if not parent-encouraged, debauchery. Unfortunately, not one in a million have grasped it, focusing instead on the licentious details Democrat senators directed them toward and whether one story was more credible than the other.

 

I have told you before that there are two governments in America; the one you see and the one you don’t. The one you see is the politicians and the courts. They are actors who give the illusion that you have a constitutional republic based on the rule of law and that you have some input in governmental processes.

 

The other government is unseen. It has many names and many elements that work against the best interests of the people. It is incestuous. Among its names are shadow government, powers that be and the simple term “they.” I call it the Deep State.

 

It is made up of faceless bureaucrats, crony corporations, the power elite, behind-the-scenes political operatives and lawyers, the banksters, the vast U.S. intelligence apparatus, the military-industrial complex (as revealed by President Eisenhower) and the globalists found in think tanks, the Council on Foreign Relations and Trilateral Commission.

 

The cover was pulled off a few of them these last days and weeks. They’ve been circling around the Christine Blasey Ford narrative like flies around a carcass. And, she, in fact, may even be one of them.

 

Despite hours of investigation by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the FBI, none of Ford’s accusations could be corroborated. The witnesses named by Ford – and by the second Kavanaugh accuser, Deborah Ramirez – denied knowledge of the activities the two women described, according to released or leak portions of the FBI investigation.

 

One of Ford’s witnesses is Leland Keyser, the sole female “witness” Ford named. Ford described Keyser as her best friend in their high school days at Holton-Arms preparatory school. Keyser is a former professional golfer who is now in poor health. Her health was the excuse Ford used to explain away Keyser’s refusal to corroborate Ford’s claims.

 

Keyser’s friends told The Daily Mail that Keyser was “blindsided” by Ford’s pulling her into the case. Ford friend Keyser was married to Bob Beckel for 10 years until they divorced in 2002. [Blog Editor: That’s the same Bob Beckel fired from Fox News for being too free with Left Wing curmudgeon profanity on The Five.]

 

Beckel worked for the State Department under Jimmy Carter, managed Walter Mondale’s president campaign, managed other Democrat politico campaigns and worked as a lobbyist for many years.  He now works as a political pundit on Fox News.

 

Ford’s friend Monica McClean is one of the “beach friends” with whom she discussed the possibility of coming forward with her accusations against Kavanaugh. She’s also the woman Ford coached on how to take a polygraph, according to a former Ford boyfriend.

 

McClean worked at the FBI for 24 years, retiring in 2016. She was a FBI field rep in the office of former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Prior to becoming U.S. Attorney, Bharara was chief counsel to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (Communist-NY), and played an important role on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

 

Keyser told investigators this week that McClean had been pressuring her to change her story and admit that she knew about Kavanaugh’s attempt to assault Ford 35 years ago. Her former partner in New York is Jim Margolin. Margolin is still with the FBI and is part of the Robert Mueller investigation into former Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen. [Blog Editor: An example the FBI “rank-n-file” may not be as politically neutral in their investigations that even many Conservatives try to paint a picture.]

 

Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, is a longtime leftist political operative and fundraiser for SHillary Clinton. She is also vice chair of the George Soros-funded Project on Government Oversight. Soros money has gone to protestors interrupting the Kavanaugh nomination, and those women who cowed Senator Jeff Flake (Coward-Arizona) in an elevator last week were Soros operatives.

 

Ford’s brother, Ralph Blasey III, was formerly a lawyer with the leftist law firm Baker, Hostetler, which created Fusion GPS, the Democrat opposition research organization that employs or employed the wife of FBI agent Bruce Ohr and which created the phony Trump-Russia dossier. Blasey left Baker, Hostetler in 2004. The building in which the offices of Baker, Hostetler reside include CIA front companies Red Coats, Inc., Admiral Security Services and Datawatch. The building is owned by Ford’s father, Ralph Blasey II.

 

But Kavanaugh himself is a Deep State swamp creature. As told by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, the international business editor of The Daily Telegraph and long-time reporter on American government, while Kavanaugh worked for Ken Starr on the Bill Clinton Whitewater investigation, Kavanaugh actively worked to discredit a witness in the Vince Foster death case. The witness, Patrick Knowlton, was the first person at the scene of Foster’s death at Fort Marcy Park.

 

Knowlton later sued FBI agents he claimed were working for Kavanaugh, alleging witness tampering and conspiracy to violate his civil rights. Kavanaugh later wrote the Starr Report on Foster’s death, covering up the fact that Foster was murdered and his body was dumped in the park.

 

Kavanaugh, while working as legal counsel in the White House of George Bush the lesser, also helped push the PATRIOT Act, which destroyed due process and 4th and 5th Amendments.

 

Kavanaugh’s lawyer for his Senate Judiciary process is Beth Wilkinson, a longtime Democrat lawyer who represented several top aides to Hillary Clinton during the FBI investigation into Clinton’s homebrew server. She is married to David Gregory of CNN. Wilkinson was also on the prosecution team that convicted Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

 

That implicates her in the coverup of this false flag operation, protecting the FBI and then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder, who provided the explosives for McVeigh and his partner, Terry Nichols.

 

That there exists a nebulous group or groups actively working against the wishes of the American people is a difficult concept for a people as conditioned as Americans are to grasp. But anyone telling you there is no Deep State is either blind and ignorant or is lying to you.

How do YOU Want to Define WE THE PEOPLE?


John R. Houk

© October 6, 2018

 

Abraham Lincoln (the first Republican President) quote on WE THE PEOPLE

 

Donald Trump’s election as President and the despicable lengths Leftists (i.e. THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY) have gone to smear and lie about Brett Kavanaugh to prevent a Constitutional Originalist from SCOTUS exposes a choice Americans have to make.

 

Do we Americans want to uphold everything that has propelled America into greatness from the Founding Fathers to now? OR do Americans want to continue Obama’s fundamental transformation of America toward moral relativity, Socialist Collectivism (as opposed to Free Market Individualism) and a tailspin into a Globalist New World Order subservient to international elitists rather than a government accountable to WE THE PEOPLE?

 

This is the CHOICE Americans must decide not only in Election 2018, but also future elections probably for decades, to solidify America’s final choice.

 

I FOR ONE will vote for what has made America Great! Leftist Transformists will lie and deceive to achieve their agenda.

 

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN AN AMERICA where lies and deception is the basis for your culture? THEN vote for the Democratic Party.

 

DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN AN AMERICA where the rule of law derives from the standard of the U.S. Constitution that can only be changed by a significant majority of WE THE PEOPLE? THEN vote (currently) for CONSERVATIVE Republicans (NOT RINOs).

 

I placed the word “currently” in parentheses because today I list myself as an Independent rather than a Republican. WHY?

 

Because I have zero trust for the Republican Establishment that is the preponderance of GOP leadership. As long as you vote Conservative more than Republican, the Establishment GOP Establishment is pushed toward Conservative principles rather than political status quo principles that have had an enabling effect of the Dem Party Left.

 

Below are some articles (and a short video) that will provide some perspective of what Conservative Americans must fight for to preserve the Republic of the United States of America as envisioned by our nation’s Founding Fathers that risked their very lives to begin the political experiment that made America the greatest nation in earth’s history to date. Globalist George Soros is the focus of the first article and the second is actually an open letter to Americans from Hal Lindsey.

George Soros: Trump Has Almost Destroyed the New World Order

 

October 05, 2018

Prophecy in the News

 

Pouting George Soros

 

George Soros says he is alarmed and frustrated at the speed in which President Trump is dismantling the New World Order.

 

Speaking exclusively to the Washington Post, the billionaire globalist admits he regrets not foreseeing Trump’s meteoric rise to power.

 

Fearful that Trump “is willing to destroy the world”, Soros has vowed to “redouble [his] efforts” in pouring millions of dollars into opposing everything Trump stands for.

 

Zerohedge.com reports: While the Hungarian-American might come off as full of doom and gloom in his interview, he actually has a reason to feel that way because Trump has single-handedly presided over the dismantlement of the Liberal-Globalist world order that Soros has worked for decades to build, destroying the old paradigm of Trans-Atlantic relations in a simple spree of tweets and presiding over the return of Christian morals, ethics, and values in American society, ideas that are absolutely anathema to the atheist billionaire.

 

From Soros’ perspective, Trump is indeed destroying the world, albeit not in the apocalyptic sense like he’s implying but in the ideological one of pioneering a completely new world order than the one that the President inherited.

 

Obama, who can be regarded as Soros’ surrogate in the White House, worked towards building a world where the US bows before the authority of the UN on many (but crucially, not all) key issues such as climate change and sustainable development agendas, heralding in a new multilateralism that would have moved International Relations closer to a so-called “one world government”, albeit one that would still be largely under indirect American influence.

 

Concurrent with this, the Obama-Soros vision was to have the media attack all of their opponents as “racist, fascist, white supremacists” for daring to think that the future might be different, but then all of a sudden Trump came along and committed to undoing their legacy.

 

The world that Trump wants to build is one of unrestricted American unilateralism in “Leading from the Front” while unabashedly pioneering a return to unipolarity, righting what he truly believes to have been the many historic wrongs that Obama, Soros, and all the others before him committed in voluntarily handicapping American power through lopsided trade deals and various other unfair commitments.

 

All told, this global recalibration can rightly be described as a “Revolution in World Affairs” because of the “new thinking” involved in guiding America’s policies from here on out.

A Most Important Letter From Hal Lindsey To America

 

BY GERI UNGUREAN

OCTOBER 5, 2018

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

 

Hal Lindsey

 

It is almost impossible to overstate the importance of the crossroads at which we stand today in America.

 

The unexpected election of Donald Trump forced into open view the truth about the “fundamental change” that has occurred in our nation during the last few years. It revealed unacknowledged corruption in our government’s institutions that has shaken the confidence of many Americans.

 

In the same way, the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has exposed the extreme threat the Left poses to the core values of our republic.

 

None of us doubted that the Left would fight tooth and nail to defeat anyone who might pose a perceived threat to our national orgy: the unrestrained practice of killing our unborn — or almost born — at whim. Most Americans, even if not practicing Judeo-Christians, still have within themselves an uncomfortable sense that something is not right about this national disgrace. After all, the “lawful” murder of 152 absolutely innocent persons per hour per day per week per month per year cannot be swept under the cosmic rug forever.

 

Deep within most Americans, the disconcerting thought lurks that, at some point, God Himself is going to say, “Enough is enough!”

 

But I think few of us realized exactly how much the Left is willing to sacrifice to preserve that national sin.

 

Everything.

 

One of the defining principles of our nation — one that is almost innate within the psyche of Americans — is the idea that each of us is “innocent until proven guilty” of any accusation. We all grew up knowing that, when the stakes were high, at least we had the protection of that fundamental assumption.

 

We knew that in matters great or small, the onus of proof was on the accuser. (Unless the accuser was Mom. She didn’t actually need proof, she somehow just knew.)

 

In fact, it has been a main pillar of jurisprudence in America for centuries, and millennia in previous societies.

 

Yet the main bludgeon in the final battle against Kavanaugh’s nomination has been an attempt to pervert that principle. The Left is so desperate to win that it has chosen to sacrifice that hallowed right on the altar of expediency.

 

The Democratic Party, the mainstream media, academia, entertainment, and a disappointing number of “establishment” organizations (even churches) apparently all agree that “guilt by accusation” is the new, acceptable standard. And that the concept of a “statute of limitations” is unnecessary.

 

I don’t need to tell you how explosively dangerous both of those ideas are. Normal Americans understand the frightening possibilities this quicksand represents. Those on the Left know, too, that’s why their reckless willingness to discard them is so disturbing.

 

“Guilt by accusation alone” was the foundation on which The Inquisition, the Salem witch trials, and the Reign of Terror were perpetrated. (Also, the practice that the accused defend himself before he heard the accusation. The Senate Judiciary Committee’s minority members — the Democrats — insisted that Judge Kavanaugh testify in his defense before Dr. Ford presented her accusations. The Committee Chairman refused.)

 

As I write this, I feel vaguely like we are Christian in the Slough of Despond (The Pilgrim’s Progress). It is, indeed, a dangerous place that can claim our lives if someone does not happen by to help us reach the other side.

 

In this case, I believe that “someone” is God and He has already happened by to help us. He has helped us by providing a spotlight to expose the dangerous bog into which our nation has wandered. And the helpful hand that is extended to us is the recognition that we, as citizens, have the power to pull ourselves out of this immediate threat before it is too late.

 

We have the means to reject the wiles and ploys of those who are willing to subvert our rights and liberties to hold on to the power to which they feel entitled.

 

That means is the ballot box. Our power is the vote.

 

We are just over a month from the mid-term general elections. As I always do, I encourage you to study the platforms and policies of the candidates in your state and your district. Compare them to the principles taught in the Bible.

 

Then vote the Bible. And vote your conscience.

 

Once again, I cannot overstate the importance of this moment in our history. If we are to continue to realize God’s blessings on our nation, we must get serious about rejecting the slide into nihilism. We must get serious about restoring to preeminence the moral foundations on which our nation was built.

 

We must get serious about seeking God’s forgiveness for our national failures and working to restore our national values.

 

Our second President, John Adams once observed, “Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made wholly for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

 

America was not designed to operate in the chaos of backstabbing, greed, and rage. But since our nation has been systematically eliminating God from our institutions and culture, we no longer have the moral compass to sustain the greatness that our heritage allowed us to achieve.

 

Pray for America. We are at a moment of great crisis.

 

And greater danger.

Me Thinks Blasey Ford is a Liar


OR Manipulated OR Both

 

John R. Houk, Blog Editor

Posted October 4, 2018

After Christine Blasey Ford’s Senate passionate/heartfelt testimony, I was convinced she was sexually assaulted. I even had a wait-n-see moment to wait for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s testimony to decide if he was the culprit. That is how undeniably believable Ford came across.

 

Then Kavanaugh testified and I went back to believing someone assaulted Ford but NO WAY IN H-E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS was it Judge Kavanaugh.

 

AND THEN the examination of details of her testimony including Blasey Ford’s own past has convinced me she is either a FREAKING LIAR or a manipulated tool of Dem Deep State OR perhaps even a bit of both.

 

Now below are a series of articles that show what I mean including a few embedded article titles that I simply don’t have time or patience to cross post.

Ex-Boyfriend of Ford Raises Speculation That She Gave False Statements To Senate

 

By Sara Carter

WASHINGTON, DC – SEPTEMBER 27: Christine Blasey Ford at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC. A professor at Palo Alto University and a research psychologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Ford has accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party in 1982 when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.

Christine Blasey Ford

 

As the Senate Judiciary members grapple with testimony provided by Christine Blasey Ford last Thursday regarding accusations that she was attacked by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh 36 years ago, a letter from a former long-time boyfriend is beginning to raise serious doubt about her credibility and truthfulness to the lawmakers about her past.

 

On Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) told reporters that the FBI, which was tasked by the committee to conduct an expanded investigation into the incident, is almost done with their investigation. The FBI has already done six full background checks into Kavanaugh (who is also facing allegations from two other women), none of which ever discovered the allegations Ford. The expanded investigation also includes allegations from Deborah Ramirez, who said Kavanaugh exposed himself during the time they attended Yale University. The New York Times, however, could find no one to corroborate her claims and discovered that Ramirez had been calling former classmates saying she couldn’t remember if it was Kavanaugh or someone else.

 

“I think it’s very close,” Grassley said. “I have not talked to the FBI, and I don’t think I should talk to the FBI. People that seem to know said it’s getting close, but when, I haven’t heard.”

 

The ex-boyfriend, whose name was removed from the letter at his request for privacy, sent  the letter to Grassley’s committee saying “I do not want to become involved in this process or current investigation, but wanted to be truthful about what I know.”

 

The former boyfriend established that he had a long-time relationship with Ford from 1992-1998. He had been friends with Ford since the early 90s and then dated Ford off and on from “approximately 1992 to 1988,” according to his letter.

 

The boyfriend detailed Ford’s friendship with a woman named Monica L. McLean, “who I understood to be her life-long best friend. During that time, it was my understanding that McLean was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and the US Attorney’s Office. I witnessed Dr. Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam. Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam. Dr. Ford was able to help because of her background in psychology,” the letter stated.

 

During last Thursday’s testimony to lawmakers and under questioning by Republican-appointed Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, Ford said that she never spoke to her attorneys or anyone ever about “how to take a polygraph” test. In fact, she was emphatic in telling Mitchell she “never” participated in such a discussion.

 

Mitchell, a 25-year prosecutor from Arizona who served as the Deputy County Attorney in Maricopa County Attorney’s Office in Arizona, has already released a memo to the Senate questioning the contradictory answers and failed memory lapses given by Ford. Mitchell, who went through a litany of what often appeared at times boring questions, established a laundry list of 9 reasons why Ford’s testimony failed to meet any standards to prosecute Kavanaugh if such a case were ever to be brought to court.

 

Mitchell is an expert in the field of sex crimes. She is also is the division chief of the Special Victims Division, which handles cases of domestic violence, sex crimes, and auto theft and she took a leave of absence to come to Washington last week for the questioning.

 

Mitchell stated in her memo to the Senate Judiciary Committee, “A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that. Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them. For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee. Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard.”

 

The ex-boyfriend also called into question some of the same issues that Mitchell pointed out were inconsistent in Ford’s testimony. Mitchell questioned Ford’s excuse “fear of flying” based on testimony she provided to the committee.

 

In Mitchell’s memo, she noted that Ford “maintains that she suffers from anxiety, claustrophobia, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The date of the hearing was delayed because the Committee was informed that her symptoms prevent her from flying. But she agreed during her testimony that she flies ‘fairly frequently for [her] hobbies and … work.’ She flies to the mid-Atlantic at least once a year to visit her family. She has flown to Hawaii, French Polynesia, and Costa Rica. She also flew to Washington, D.C. for the hearing.”

 

The boyfriend noted that he and Ford kept a long distance relationship after she moved to Hawaii ‘sometime around 1998.” He stated that she had no apparent fear of flying and no fear of small spaces.

 

He said “while visiting Ford in Hawaii, we traveled around the Hawaiian islands including one time on a propeller plane. Dr. Ford never indicated a fear of flying. To the best of recollection, Dr. Ford never indicated a fear of flying. To the best of my recollection, Dr. Ford never expressed a fear of close quarters, tight spaces, or places with only one exit. I assisted Dr. Ford with finding a place to live in  (redacted) CA. She ended up living in a very small, 500 sq. ft. house with one door.”

 

To this day, no-one has come forward to corroborate Ford’s recollection of the night she alleges Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her at a high school party, while his high school friend Mark Judge stood by. The witnesses provided by Ford have all denied attending this party and have no recollection of Ford’s account.

 

Ford’s close high school friend Leyland Keyser stated in a letter through her representative, Howard Walsh that “simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.” Keyser also said she never met and doesn’t recall ever meeting Kavanaugh.

SORRY FOR BLURTING IT OUT, BUT CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD IS A LIAR

And her story isn’t credible.

 

By David Horowitz

October 3, 2018

FrontPageMag.com

 

Christine Blasey Ford

 

One thing I learned watching the witch trial of Brett Kavanaugh on MSNBC, is that a prestigious university in New York has a Vice President for Social Justice. (She is an MSNBC commentator). Her Orwellian title is but one of many signs that our country is already on the threshold of 1984; the Judiciary Committee circus is another.

 

In her comments on the hearings, the Vice President for Social Justice, Maya Wiley, was clearly out for blood, and had no interest in evidence, due process, or the facts. She is also of course both a woman, a woman “of color” and a lesbian. In other words, she occupies three of the top rungs in the hierarchy of the oppressed – all bombs waiting to blow up in the face of any straight white male who stumbles into their cross-hairs.

 

Any fair-minded observer of the Kavanaugh proceedings would have noted that no one – Republican or Democrat – so much as laid a glove on his female accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, even though she had come forward to destroy the life of an exemplary individual and his family. No one, dared to do so. Call this feminine or victim privilege. Kavanaugh’s high school yearbooks with tales of drinking were fair game, but Ford’s – which openly talk of the girls’ sexual promiscuity and boast of girls passing out at drinking parties – were not. Nor were her extensive political connections to the anti-Trump left, the pro-abortion movement, the Democratic Party and even the law firm involved in the Steele dossier.

 

Yes, the sexual crime prosecutor established that Ford lied to the committee when she said she couldn’t come to Washington for the hearings because she was afraid of flying. In fact, as she admitted under questioning, she has frequently flown all over the world for pleasure. But no one actually confronted her about this. For example, no one asked her directly, “If you were brazen enough to lie to a congressional committee about this, why should we believe you in regard to anything else?”

 

Yes the same prosecutor gently asked Ford why she thought her best friend Leland Keyser, whom she claimed was present at the party and would corroborate her story, in fact refuted it, saying that she was never at such a party, and the one in question never happened. Ford gave a transparently evasive answer saying her friend had (unspecified) health issues, while never explaining what they were or why that should cause her to contradict what Ford had claimed.

 

Actually, all the alleged witnesses to the party where the incident was supposed to have taken place have denied that they were there. The one witness who was allegedly in the room where she claimed the incident took place says he wasn’t there. But none of the senators had the temerity to confront her directly with the obvious question: why should we believe your inflammatory claims about Judge Kavanaugh given that no one you have named supports any piece of your story? Moreover, no one asked her “How do you feel about besmirching the reputation of a stellar individual, and bringing incalculable pain to his family by advancing claims that no one corroborates? How can you say that you are 100% sure an incident happened, when you can’t remember anything else accurately about the evening? Did your lawyers instruct you to say 100%? What actually did your lawyers prompt you to say in your prepared statement?

 

No one said to her: you signed a letter attacking President Trump’s border policies and were able to get the anti-Trump ACLU to publish it; you contacted an anti-Trump paper, the Washington Post, to make your charges; you turned first to Democrats who are sworn to “resist” – actually sabotage –the Trump presidency and his judicial nominees; and you accepted attorneys recommended by Democrats, who are activist Democrat, anti-Trump lawyers. Can we conclude, therefore, that there might be a political motive behind your decision to bring up these character-ruining accusations about a rough-housing you allegedly received 37 years ago when you and Kavanaugh were too young to even vote?

 

No one dared to ask these questions or to vigorously pursue problematic areas of her testimony and behavior. Instead everyone expressed sympathy for her and her pain in testifying, and said how credible she sounded – even though, unlike Kavanaugh’s presentation, hers was vetted and coached by lawyers, and even though it amounted to character assassination if her memory was false.

 

At the bottom of these asymmetries lies the fact that despite half a century of women’s “liberation” and “hear me roar” proclamations the feminist attitude towards women is still Victorian. Women are fragile violets who wilt before the raised voices and impassioned claims of male innocence. But this image is a one way mirror. Let a moment go by and then, when they or their defenders are on the counter-attack, hear them roar. Senator Mazie Hirono put it mind-numbingly well: “Men should just shut up and stand up (for their female accusers of course).”

 

This is the ideologically constructed atmosphere, which makes a latter-day witch trial like the Judiciary hearings possible. Christine Blasey Ford’s story is unbelievable on its face. She claims that after the alleged incident at the alleged party, where three of her friends (who have denied it) were allegedly present, she fled. Here are some questions that were not asked:

 

How did she get past those friends without them seeing her and her distress?

 

How could she not have warned her best friend, Leland Keyser, that there were two potential rapists in the house, if that’s what she thought?

 

How did she get home?

 

How did her best friend not ask her the next day why she left without her, or what happened?

 

Why was this such a trauma she could not tell her best friend? One can understand why she would want to conceal from her parents that she had gone to a drinking party with boys, but her friend who was allegedly there? She doesn’t even claim that she was raped, only that she was frightened in an incident that could have happened at any of the drunken parties she might have attended as described in her high school yearbook.

On the face of it, Christine Blasey Ford’s story is not only unsubstantiated. It isn’t credible. The destruction of Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation is the equivalent of a modern-day lynching – the third that Democrats have orchestrated in the last twenty-seven years. It’s despicable. At least Republicans like Lindsey Graham have laid that charge at the door of the Democratic culprits who worked so hard to accomplish it. But, as a nation, we have obviously not reached the point where we can grant women true equality by confronting their lies and their reckless accusations with the same candor and frankness we would if they were coming out of the mouths of men.

Christine Ford’s ex-boyfriend submits sworn detailed letter refuting her testimony: She lied. Repeatedly.

Christine Blasey Ford — the liberal professor who leveled decades-old, 11th hour groping accusations against Brett Kavanaugh — better hope she doesn’t end up in jail for perjury after Kavanaugh inevitably gets confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

In a sworn declaration to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford’s ex-boyfriend said she once coached her “lifelong best friend” on how to pass a polygraph test when the friend was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and DOJ.

 

This directly contradicts Ford’s sworn testimony at her Senate hearing, when she claimed she never helped anyone prepare for a lie detector test.

 

“During some of the time we were dating, Dr. Ford lived with Monica L. McLean, who I understood to be be her life-long best friend,” Ford’s ex-boyfriend wrote. “During that time, it was my understanding that McLean was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office.”

 

The declaration continued: “I witnessed Dr. Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam. Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked, and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam.”

 

This is relevant because Democrats have repeatedly bragged that Christine Blasey Ford is credible because she passed a polygraph test. Polygraphs are inadmissible in court because they are unreliable, since even the biggest liars can be coached to pass them.

In his sworn statement, Ford’s ex-boyfriend (whose name was redacted) also said she never once mentioned Brett Kavanaugh or said she was a victim of sexual misconduct during the six years they dated, from 1992 to 1998.

 

“During our time dating, Dr. Ford never brought up anything regarding her experience as a victim of sexual assault, harassment, or misconduct. Dr. Ford never mentioned Brett Kavanaugh,” the letter states.

Ford’s former boyfriend also shot down her bogus claims that she had a pathological fear of flying and was claustrophobic.

 

Ford had insisted at her Senate Judiciary hearing that she developed claustrophobia because Brett Kavanaugh had groped her in 1982, when they were in high school.

 

Ford also delayed her Senate Judiciary hearing for a week, claiming she was petrified of flying. But her ex-boyfriend said Ford had no problem living in a “very small,” 500-square-foot apartment with one door. He said she even gleefully boarded a tiny propeller plane when they went island-hopping in Hawaii.

 

The ex-boyfriend said he dumped Ford after she cheated on him, and said she admitted that she fraudulently used his credit card to make purchases a year after they broke up.

 

Meanwhile, Democrats have laughably pinned their hopes of derailing Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS nomination on an apparent lying, thieving grifter.

 

 

In a scathing letter that referenced the ex-boyfriend’s sworn declaration, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley demanded that Ford’s attorneys turn over her therapist notes (which she shared with the Washington Post but not with the Senate).

 

Grassley noted: “These notes have been repeatedly cited as corroboration even while written 30 years after the alleged event and in apparent contradiction with testimony and other public statements regarding several key details of the allegations…Please provide the requested materials to the Senate Judiciary Committee immediately.”

Meanwhile, Fox News host Brit Hume said the Democrats have shifted their line of attack from “Kavanaugh is a rapist” to “Kavanaugh drank beer in college” to questioning his “judicial temperament” because the sham allegations of Christine Ford and Julie Swetnick have imploded.

 

It appears that the Blasey Ford allegations are receding. The Swetnick allegations appear to have almost totally collapsed. The nomination was made, the Democrats came out almost unanimously against it, immediately before any hearings.

 

Then, during the course of the hearings, his record as a judge — what you would think would be the most important thing — went almost unremarked upon. No questions about it, no criticisms, none of it.”

 

“Then, after the hearings were over, these unverified allegations leak out…You almost want to laugh at [how desperate and ridiculous the Democrats are].”

HUGE! Christine Ford Published 2008 Article on Self-Hypnosis Used to Retrieve and “Create Artificial Situations

Christine Blasey Ford & Michael Bromwich

 

Christine Ford has not turned over her therapist’s notes to the Senate regarding her suppressed memories about Judge Kavanaugh abusing her decades earlier.

 

This may be because if the memories were revealed through hypnosis they would be “absolutely inadmissible” in the court of law in many states, including New York and Maryland.

 

 

There were also accusations that Christine Ford was under a hypnotic trance during her testimony.

 

 

Now this…

 

One of Christine Blasey Ford’s research articles in 2008 included a study on self-hypnosis.

 

The practice of self-hypnosis is used to retrieve important memories and “create artificial situations.”

A Democratic Party Hit Job


My primary email account I use seems to be hindering the delivery of valid blog submissions to my inbox. I recently discovered that Justin Smith submitted his thoughts on the Dem Party savage and farcical interrogation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. I discovered this when Justin sent me a Facebook Messenger text of this submission. I advised him to email it to me. He said that he had. I still didn’t receive it.

 

I then found Justin’s submission on my Facebook Group: Social Media Jail Conversations for Conservatives & Counterjihadists. I created this group because of the numerous times I’ve been sentenced to Facebook Jail. I’d like to think it was a platform for Conservatives and Counterjihadists to voice their thoughts freely without profanity. (Feel free to request to join.)

 

Below is a bit different version than the one on my Facebook group submitted through an alternative email that I provided to Justin.

A Democratic Party Hit Job

All Out Political War

 

By Justin O. Smith

A version of this submission at Facebook Group Social Media Jail Conversations for Conservatives & Counterjihadists

Posted on 9/30/18 8:05pm

This version sent 10/1/2018 6:00 PM

 

President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, despite Kavanaugh’s wishy-washy fence-sitting on the ACA’s [Blog Editor: aka Obamacare] constitutionality and his 65 page dissent (Seven-Sky v Holder) that paved the way for Chief Justice Roberts to declare Obamacare a “tax” and “constitutional”, as Trump passed over Amy Coney Barrett, who most conservatives recognized as the best choice. Although Kavanaugh is a highly qualified candidate, who was passed through to the federal court with flying colors, by Democrats and Republicans alike, today the Democrats are fighting his placement to the Supreme Court, tooth and nail, due to the fact that the Court is now viewed as though it were a second legislative body, by politicians on both sides of the political aisle. The nomination process has been politicized and weaponized, which was noted during the hearing, on September 27th, by an outraged and apoplectic Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

 

In what can only be described as a Democratic Party hit job and leftwing character assassination, Senator Dianne Feinstein sat on Dr Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation of an attempted rape committed against her by Kavanaugh, from July until mid-September, and revealed it only as a Hail Mary and an 11th hour act of desperation to motivate President Trump to remove Kavanaugh or make Kavanaugh withdraw himself from the nomination. Not long afterwards, two more women joined the attack. Not one of Kavanaugh’s accusers has a single shred of evidence to any assault, and, the “witnesses” they have named refute and deny their accusations.

 

Even the New York Times went out on a limb on September 23rd, with Sheryl Stolberg’s story, and cast suspicion on Debbie Ramirez’s accusation. They reported that “Ramirez … could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself“.

 

Something clearly happened to Ford and she certainly believes her story, which ebbed and flowed like a surreal nightmare, of which she had virtually no solid memory to support the events she supposedly experienced. A neutral interviewer, attorney Rachel Mitchell, exposed this fact during questioning, and Ford herself repeatedly contradicted herself, while claiming her memory was firm that Kavanaugh was her “attacker”. Mitchell’s masterfully exposed that Ford’s legal team, who paid for her polygraph test,  was suggested by Senator Feinstein, and they misrepresented Ford’s fear of flying and the need for a delay.

 

If one doesn’t believe this is a hit job, how would anyone explain that Debra Katz, Ford’s lawyer, represented another Kavanaugh accuser, Julie Swetnick, a decade ago, in a sexual harassment suit against New York Life? Coincidence? Hardly. The full story is detailed in the WSJ story by Rebecca Ballhaus and Aruna Viswanatha.

 

It is also quite interesting to find that Swetnick has a history of making these sort of allegations.

 

Whether one sees Kavanaugh as a strong constitutionalist or not, America should not forget that he worked in Ken Starr’s investigation of Bill Clinton and the 2000 election recount; he was also a staff secretary for President George W. Bush and he was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 2003. Curiously, none of his accusers chose to step forward at any of those times.

 

 

The Democrats don’t really want to find the truth. If they did, they would have raised this accusation from the start and investigated it quietly, without having Kavanaugh’s and Ford’s name dragged through the media mud. However, as noted by Andrew McCarthy, a regular National Review contributor,  the Senate isn’t charged with solving crimes and psychoanalyzing witnesses. The Senate’s job is to advise and consent on the president’s nomination, and even if it were a trial, the case is so weak, it would be thrown out of court.

 

In the second half of the hearing, Brett Kavanaugh’s righteous anger was apparent, as he exclaimed: “This confirmation process has become a national disgrace. The Constitution gives the Senate an important role in the confirmation process, but you have replaced ‘advise and consent’ with ‘search and destroy’. … You may defeat me in the final vote, but you will never get me to quit. Never.” [Bold text Editor’s]

 

Whatever happened to “innocent until proven guilty”?

 

In the ongoing testimony, Kavanaugh stated: “I’m here today to tell the truth. I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not in college, not ever. Sexual assault is horrific.” [Bold text Editor’s]

 

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) essentially told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Kavanaugh doesn’t have the same presumption of innocence because of his conservative ideology. Senator Hirono inferred that he’s more likely to be guilty due to his conservatism. The Democrats don’t oppose him because they find the accusations credible. They find the accusations credible because they oppose him.

 

How surreal is it to see the admitted sexual molester, Senator Cory Booker, feigning outrage in his attempt to castigate the honorable Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a Yale Graduate, who has had no less than 87 women rush to his defense?

 

Senator Lindsey Graham took all of this farce he could, until he finally unleashed a fury that not any single American ever knew him capable of reaching. Rising up in his seat several times, Senator Graham angrily castigated his Democrat counterparts: “Boy, you all want power. God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham that you knew about and you held it. … What you want is you want to destroy this guy’s life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020. You’ve said that. Not me. … This is one of the most unethical shams I’ve seen in politics and if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn’t have done what you’ve done to [Kavanaugh] this guy.” Graham later added, “If this is the new norm, you better watch out for your [Democrats’] nominees.”*** [Bold text Editor’s]

 

[***Blog Editor: VIDEO: Graham Questions Judge Kavanaugh]

 

This is an all-out political war for the Supreme Court and the future of America, and the Left wants to win by any means necessary, since their agenda in America is at stake. The Leftist illiberal Democratic Party needs the Court, a politicized Court, in order to continue redefining marriage and advancing sexual deviancy, abortions on demand, single-payer “healthcare” and other communistic systems and the assault on our borders and U.S. sovereignty. Much more is at stake than Brett Kavanaugh’s career. Both parties understand the shift that will take place, if a committed constitutionalist replaces Justice Kennedy. [Bold text Editor’s]

 

The rest of the Republican Party needs to take note and follow Senator Graham’s lead on this. Graham finally let his backbone show in outstanding fashion, as he delivered some harsh criticism of the Democrats and some damned straight talk, that Americans haven’t heard coming from the Republicans, in decades. He grew into the Lion of Congress with his passionate exposé of the Democrats’ intent and his righteous indignation, and many Americans had tears in their eyes, as they finally saw a U.S. Senator making a hard stand for a fellow honorable American, for all Americans and for this country we love so well.

Report: Flake wasn’t pressured, he masterminded the Kavanaugh delay


It is beginning to appear that Senate RINO Jeff Flake’s cowardly submission to Dems via alleged victims of sexual assault intimidation was staged. Flake may have even masterminded the whole stall tactic to keep Brett Kavanaugh from becoming a Justice on the Supreme Court.

 

Making Flake not a coward but rather a traitor to the Republican Party. TOO BAD THAT IS NOT A PROSECUTABLE CRIME!

 

For clarity on this RINO treason, here is the scoop posted at Legal Insurrection:

 

The plot to further stall the Kavanaugh nomination was hatched Thursday night in Senator Susan Collins’ (R-ME) office.  Also allegedly in attendance were Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Joe Manchin (D-WV).” 

 

Never trust a FLAKE!

Report: Flake wasn’t pressured, he masterminded the Kavanaugh delay

 

Posted by Fuzzy Slippers

September 30, 2018 12:00pm

Legal Insurrection

 

The “Flake-led rebellion” had “been building for nearly two weeks”

 

 

RINO Flake & Dem Coons

 

According to a report published by Politico, Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) chose to appear pressured when, in fact, he masterminded the latest Kavanaugh delay. His subsequent media statements about his motivations and his media appearances in light of this report suggest Flake’s true motivations are far less pure than he would have us believe.

 

Flake’s focus on optics, on his raw ambition (for 2020?), and on the kind of “swamp creature” political maneuvering surrounding this planned reversal paints for the American people a hideous and disturbing portrait of the Arizona senator.

 

On Friday, Flake told the Atlantic that he insisted on the seventh FBI investigation into Judge Brett Kavanaugh because he was trying to save two institutions, the Senate and the Supreme Court.  During this interview, he also explained that he was deeply moved by Chris Coons’ pleas and decided that it was up to him, Jeff Flake, to “bring a little unity,” to stop our country “coming apart on this.” A move that apparently brought Coons near tears.

 

To follow up on his preening media tour, Flake showed up on 60 Minutes with Coons in tow.  CBS is revealing parts of this interview leading up to its Sunday night airing.

 

 

CBS News reports:

 

In an interview with “60 Minutes” correspondent Scott Pelley airing Sunday, Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, and Chris Coons, D-Delaware, discussed what they thought of Kavanaugh’s emotional testimony. Both senators were instrumental in delaying a floor vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination for one week while the FBI conducts an investigation into claims against him.

 

. . . . Coons said Kavanaugh’s reaction to questions posed by Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Amy Klobuchar about his drinking and behavior in high school “went over a line.”

 

“He was clearly belligerent, aggressive, angry. And I thought there was a tough dynamic there. As I watched him, part of me thought, ‘This is a man who believes that he did nothing wrong, and he’s completely unjustly accused. And he’s being railroaded. And he’s furious about it,’” said Coons.

 

Coons added that Kavanaugh’s more “partisan” responses made him question his fitness for the bench.

 

“There were some lines that he delivered that were sharper, more partisan, more, ‘This is the Clintons paying me back. This is a Democratic smear campaign,’ that I was surprised, struck to hear from a judicial nominee,” Coons said. “I’m not at all surprised to hear that from other colleagues in the committee or on television. But I was really struck that I thought his anger got the best of him. And he made a partisan argument that would’ve been best left to be made for his advocates and defenders on the committee.”

 

Flake said he “didn’t like” Kavanaugh’s “mention of the Clintons and whatnot,” but added, “I had to put myself in that spot. I think you give a little leeway there.”

 

Watch:

Flake’s positioning of himself as some sort of unifying force whose sole mission is to save the Senate and SCOTUS because he is driven by patriotic desires for national unity is unraveling, however.

 

The plot to further stall the Kavanaugh nomination was hatched Thursday night in Senator Susan Collins’ (R-ME) office.  Also allegedly in attendance were Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Joe Manchin (D-WV).  The four put their heads together and realized that as only Flake serves on the Judiciary Committee, they couldn’t pull off their devious plot without the assistance of another Senator serving on the committee.

 

They somehow landed on Senator Chris Coons (D-DE), and as noted above, Flake has been putting him to good use as a political prop and general useful idiot.

 

Politico reports:

 

In Susan Collins’ third-floor office in the Capitol, she and her Republican colleagues Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — joined by Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia — agreed they had the power to make or break Kavanaugh. And without settling on precise details, they decided to use their leverage to insist on a process that would allow them to reach a comfort level with Kavanaugh’s confirmation process and seek more information, rather than to kill his Supreme Court nomination outright, according to two people familiar with the meeting,

 

What resulted on Friday afternoon threw Washington into chaos and guaranteed another week of uncertainty and suspense surrounding Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Just hours after Flake endorsed Kavanaugh and seemed to put him on a path to the high court, the Arizonan said he first wanted a week-long FBI investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that the judge assaulted her. It was a victory for Democrats who’d been demanding such a probe, to no avail, and promises to define the retiring Flake’s legacy as someone who refused to let Kavanaugh get a vote while under a cloud of doubt.

 

. . . . But the Flake-led rebellion, however long it lasts, had been building for nearly two weeks.

 

Though Murkowski, Collins and Manchin all endorsed the FBI investigation on Friday, Flake needed another partner to pull off his move because none of them serves on the Judiciary Committee. So Flake, who’s been mocked for writing a book blasting the Trump presidency only to vote for his agenda, teamed up with a Democrat.

 

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) has spent his eight-year Senate career making earnest attempts to build relationships with Republicans, at times to liberals’ annoyance. He and Flake have taken trips around the world together as part of their duties. And on Friday afternoon, with a Supreme Court seat on the line, it all paid off.

 

Coons, who appears to be a hapless victim of Flake’s skullduggery, was then blindsided by Flake’s announcement that he was insisting on a further delay and investigation.

 

Politico continues:

 

Coons and Flake vacated the Judiciary Committee shortly before the panel was expected to vote to advance Kavanaugh, a seemingly innocuous moment that left onlookers increasingly bewildered as more senators joined them in the back room. They returned minutes later with a deal that forced GOP leaders to bow to the minority’s demand for an FBI probe, delaying the confirmation for as much as a week.

 

“I did not expect him to do this today,” Coons said of Flake, speaking for nearly everyone in official Washington.

 

Flake’s plot doesn’t stop there; it includes signalling [sic] to Senate Republicans that his intentions are not to bring down Kavanaugh. It’s unclear how true that is, but Politico continues:

 

In fact, Flake was playing a longer game. He said his statement supporting Kavanaugh was a signal to Republicans that he wasn’t joining the Democratic resistance and would show he wasn’t out to bring Kavanaugh’s nomination down.

 

“I hoped that would help provide leverage,” Flake recounted. But he needed some Democrats to endorse the FBI investigation, if not Kavanaugh’s nomination, to get fellow Republicans to agree.

 

Flake wanted to demonstrate “that the process is fair, at least, even if [Democrats are] not going to vote for” Kavanaugh, he added.

 

Flake wouldn’t say whether the protesters played a role in his decision. But he acknowledged he was in the middle of a “remarkable” moment and ticked off his “interactions with a lot of people, on the phone, email, text, walking around the Capitol, you name it.”

 

. . . . In his speech, little-noticed at the time, Coons suggested that someone with a “partisan agenda” might have leaked to the media Ford’s letter alleging the assault — harmonizing with what Republicans had been saying for days. Coons’ speech also repeated his request for an FBI investigation.

 

It was exactly what Flake was looking for.

 

Not long afterward, Coons and Flake repaired to a committee anteroom to hash out an agreement: Democrats would endorse a one-week FBI investigation into Kavanaugh, and Flake would use his leverage in the narrowly divided Senate and threaten to vote “no” on the floor if Republicans refused to go along.

 

Read the rest.

 

There is a somewhat disturbing revelation in the remaining Politico report.

 

Collins asked that Kavanaugh’s friend Mark Judge, whom Ford alleges was in the room during the alleged assault, sign a letter and send it to the committee rather than let his lawyer do it, according to two Republican senators. The letter was turned around in a matter of hours. And Murkowski had endorsed an FBI investigation days before, only to change her tune after meeting for more than a half-hour privately with McConnell.

 

We covered this letter which was submitted, the letter states, “under penalty of felony.”

 

Meanwhile, Flake—again with Coons in tow—was proclaimed a “hero” at Saturday’s Global Citizens Festival.

TGP Finds Christine Ford Lie


John R. Houk

© September 30, 2018

 

A couple of days ago I brought up the issue of both the Dems and GOP allowing deference to the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford rape allegations against Judge Kavanaugh: The Dems hammered Kavanaugh on his teenage antics based on his High School Yearbook while ignoring any relation to Ford’s character based on the data from her Yearbook. I pointed they were both frisky teenagers that grew with respected characters.

 

YET THE DEMS decided to correlate Kavanaugh’s truthfulness as flawed because portrayals in his Yearbook, presuming Ford’s antics in her Yearbook must be ignored and her testimony to be the absolute truth. WHAT A BUNCH OF BLATANT DEM HYPOCRISY! AND what an epic failure by the GOP to NOT call-out the Dems on this blatant hypocrisy!

 

Now thanks to a little digital math and some leg-work by The Gateway Pundit, the therapy incident that was supposed to trigger Ford’s repressed memory are found to be inconsistent with her sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday 9/27/18. Here’s a short quote from The Gateway Pundit on what that blog discovered:

 

Dr. Ford’s testimony does not add up for many reasons.

 

This falsehood in her testimony about the timing of the remodeling projects on her home is not accurate.

 

This is a national disgrace thanks to the eager Democrats and their conflicted witness Christine Ford.

 

Hat tip Christina

 

UPDATE: Christine Ford spoke about the second front door at least three times in her testimony.

 

So in a new clip, she talks about it again here. She says the incident in the 1980’s is in her medical records twice: “The first time is in 2012 with my husband in couples therapy with the quibbling over the remodel”. Very much present tense, as in remodel happening at same time as couples therapy.

 

The link in the last paragraph is to a C-Span video of Ford testimony. Here is that embed for this blog:

 

C-Span VIDEO: Blasey Ford Describes Quibbling about Remodel in Therapy

http://www.c-span.org/video/standalone/?c4752473/blasey-ford-quibbling-therapy

 [This embed won’t work on WordPress formats.]

 

And continued from The Gateway Pundit:

 

Again, this is from her opening statements:

 

“I had never told the details to anyone, the specific details, until May 2012, during a couples counseling session. The reason this came up in counseling is that my husband and I had completed a very extensive, very long remodel of our home, and I insisted on a second front door, an idea that he and others disagreed with and could not understand. In explaining why I wanted a second front door, I began to describe the assault in detail.”

 

 

This implied that currently, today, it does not look pleasing. But you can’t even see the 2nd front door anymore. Back in the November 2011 google map shot, they already had started putting up posts of the wooden wall, and the walkway and new flowerbeds are already in.

 

DiFi asks “And do you have that second front door” – totally implying that she wants to know how the “quibble” with her husband turned out.

 

The March 2011 picture shows the new door, and you can see that the remodel (new space) was in the back of the house; by comparing with 2007 photo, you can see the new roofline in the back. The November 2011 image shows the wood wall posts and new pathway in front of the new door area.

 

The pictures with time stamps must be looked at on The Gateway Pundit.

 

The point being: Her rape that occurred when she was 15 inspired the home remodel WAY EARLIER than her claimed repressed memory inspiration that took place in 2012.

 

Her therapist’s remarkable ability to enhance (or fabricate) a repressed memory could not be the reason she wanted to build the 2nd front door in 2012 because the 2nd front door was built in 2011.

 

I smell another blatant Dem lie!

 

Here’s some irony: Here are some quotes from Left oriented sources who either quote from Ford’s opening Senate testimony or earlier sworn affidavits related to the reason for building a second front door and what inspired the completion of said door claimed completion in 2012:

 

“…  I had never told the details to anyone until May 2012, during a couples counseling session. The reason this came up in counseling is that my husband and I had completed an extensive remodel of our home, and I insisted on a second front door, an idea that he and others disagreed with and could not understand. In explaining why I wanted to have a second front door, I described the assault in detail.” (Read Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh’s Opening Remarks for Thursday’s Hearing; By MADISON FELLER; Elle; 9/27/18)

+++

In all three otherwise everyday scenes, Christine Blasey Ford described to others about being sexually assaulted many years earlier by a future federal judge, according to sworn affidavits her lawyers said Wednesday they submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee. A fourth from her husband says that during a 2012 couples therapy session, Ford named her attacker as Brett Kavanaugh. President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh July 9 to the Supreme Court. (Bold text Blog Editor’s – Here’s what the 4 affidavits supporting Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford say; By Laurie Kellman, Associated Press; PBS; 9/26/18 11:31 AM EDT)

+++

Today, as Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, giving her recollections in heartbreaking detail of how he sexually assaulted her as a teenager, she relayed a detail that spoke to the lasting impact of her trauma: as an adult, while renovating the house she shared with her husband, Dr. Ford insisted on installing a second front door, wanting a second escape route in the event of an emergency.

 

In a conversation with the Cut, Dr. Tracey Shors, a professor of neuroscience and psychology at Rutgers University who specializes in the study of stress, memory, and the lasting impact of teenage sexual assault, explained the evolutionary logic behind that second door, and other measures women take to assert some sense of control in the wake of trauma. (The Meaning of Christine Blasey Ford’s Second Front Door; By Katie Heaney; The Cut; 9/27/18)

 

+++

 

Her “proof” that this story is true is that she had to have two front doors installed in her home.

 

That, in turn, is what led to her attending marital counseling. A marital spat over a home remodel led to emergence of the alleged attack in “recollected memories.” But then, a little later in her testimony, Ford changed her story and claimed that her second door is actually there for “sponsored interns from Google and students” to use. Really?

 

Seems like the purpose of the door is not exactly as Ms. Ford would ask us to believe. It was not installed as a second escape route for a person suffering from claustrophobia as a result of an attack. It was installed to give the interns and students they sponsored a private door to enter their area of the house.

 

How convenient that no one caught that little omission of fact.

 

To date, there is no one willing to stand up and confirm her story. In fact, those she has identified as witnesses have all – to a person – denied being present or seeing Brett Kavanaugh ever act in the manner in which she describes.

BREAKING: Christine Ford Caught in MAJOR LIE – Photos Prove House Updates Occurred Much Earlier Than Claims in Senate Testimony

The Gateway Pundit

 

Supporters of Christine Ford protested outside her home in Palo Alto, California two weeks ago. CBS Local included a photo of Ford’s home in their coverage.

 

The address has been widely reported online and the home was pictured in the local news.

 

Dr. Christine Ford’s last minute accusations against squeaky-clean Judge Brett Kavanaugh stunned the political world.

 

But Ford’s accusations were questioned when she provided no date, no location and all of the alleged witnesses, including her friend, denied the allegations.

 

We now have information that shows Christine Ford lied about the entire story.

 

In her testimony on Thursday, Dr. Ford stated that she put a second door on her house in 2012:

 

Over the years, I told very, very few friends that I had this traumatic experience. I told my husband before we were married that I had experienced a sexual assault. I had never told the details to anyone — the specific details — until May 2012, during a couples counseling session.

 

The reason this came up in counseling is that my husband and I had completed a very extensive, very long remodel of our home and I insisted on a second front door, an idea that he and others disagreed with and could not understand.

 

In explaining why I wanted a second front door, I began to describe the assault in detail. I recall saying that the boy who assaulted me could someday be on the U.S. Supreme Court, and spoke a bit about his background at an elitist all-boys school in Bethesda, Maryland. My husband recalls that I named my attacker as Brett Kavanaugh.

 

We now have proof that this was a lie — a major lie.

 

This was the basis for the entire story she told the US Senate Judiciary Committee under oath — And this is a lie.

 

Christine Ford perjured herself.

 

The problem with Ford’s testimony is that the the second front door was built on their home long before that date. 

 

According to online queries and pictures of the property from as early as 2007, the house in question had two doors in the front since at least 2011 and probably earlier.

 

Thanks to time stamps available on the Internet, we can determine roughly when the 2nd door was put in Dr. Ford’s house.

 

A simple query of Palo Alto, CA  building inspections of properties related to Dr. Ford and her husband result in an inspection in 2007.  When you link on the same address on Zillow, you see that this house was last remodeled  in 2008.

 

Ford’s house in 2007 – there was only one door pictured.

 

Ford’s house in March 2011 – This clearly shows the second front door is already there.

 

Ford’s house in November 2011 – The second front door is there.

 

Here is the same address in 2015 — the same home where the protests took place last week.

 

Dr. Ford’s testimony does not add up for many reasons.

 

This falsehood in her testimony about the timing of the remodeling projects on her home is not accurate.

 

This is a national disgrace thanks to the eager Democrats and their conflicted witness Christine Ford.

 

Hat tip Christina

 

UPDATE: Christine Ford spoke about the second front door at least three times in her testimony.

 

So in a new clip, she talks about it again here. She says the incident in the 1980’s is in her medical records twice: “The first time is in 2012 with my husband in couples therapy with the quibbling over the remodel”. Very much present tense, as in remodel happening at same time as couples therapy.

 

Again, this is from her opening statements:

 

“I had never told the details to anyone, the specific details, until May 2012, during a couples counseling session. The reason this came up in counseling is that my husband and I had completed a very extensive, very long remodel of our home, and I insisted on a second front door, an idea that he and others disagreed with and could not understand. In explaining why I wanted a second front door, I began to describe the assault in detail.”

 

And then this clip with Dianne Feinstein during her testimony.

 

“Our house does not look aesthetically pleasing from the curb.”

 

This implied that currently, today, it does not look pleasing. But you can’t even see the 2nd front door anymore. Back in the November 2011 google map shot, they already had started putting up posts of the wooden wall, and the walkway and new flowerbeds are already in.

 

DiFi asks “And do you have that second front door” – totally implying that she wants to know how the “quibble” with her husband turned out.

 

The March 2011 picture shows the new door, and you can see that the remodel (new space) was in the back of the house; by comparing with 2007 photo, you can see the new roofline in the back. The November 2011 image shows the wood wall posts and new pathway in front of the new door area.

Dr. Ford Passionate Assertions Don’t Match What Can be Proved

If you watched the Dems inquisition of Brett Kavanaugh yesterday you should have noticed the Dems trying to get Kavanaugh to call for an FBI investigation to prove his innocence. Senator Grassley had to remind the Dems – over and over and over again – that the FBI does not draw conclusions in background investigations. The FBI merely finds facts and allows the government agency to decide if there are any red flags to prevent trust.

 

Kavanaugh was actually investigated by the FBI SIX TIMES with ZERO red flags EACH TIME. Obviously the Dem interview of Kavanaugh was merely to entice Kavanaugh to slip up. To the Dem frustration, Kavanaugh NEVER FELL FOR DEM BAITING!

 

One of the things that bothered me was the Dem aim to vilify Kavanaugh because of his High School portrayal of a rascally social life. Surprise – Surprise. Kavanaugh and buddies participated in juvenile antics that included – GASP – beer drinking.

 

Today, I am a committed Conservative Christian upholding the moral values of the Bible. HOWEVER, if my High School Yearbooks revealed the amount of keggers I participated in – especially as a Senior – and revealed it to my Church and expected the Church leadership to treat me accordingly in the present, I would be ostracized or given the left-foot of fellowship.

 

Vilifying the Kavanaugh of today – who has had a stellar law career for decades (unlike say porn lawyer Avenatti) – based on the antics of a popular teenage boy-Kavanaugh, was simply idiotic!

 

But what is good for the goose is good for the gander. Real Clear Investigations has dug up some facts of teenage girl-Christine Blasey Ford based on her mysteriously internet-scrubbed High School Yearbook. And shock of all shocks! The teenage Christine Blasey ALSO participated in adolescent antics on an equal level (if not even higher hijinks) to Kavanaugh’s teen days. AND TODAY, I get the impression the adult Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has also developed a stellar and respected career in her field.

 

It bugs the tar out of my that the Dems outrageously tried to equate Kavanaugh’s teen past to his accomplished adult present while absolutely ignoring the same scenario for Dr. Ford. And it really bugs me that the GOP side of yesterday’s hearing let Dr. Ford’s Yearbook antics go totally unexamined as a comparison.

After watching Dr. Ford’s treated with kid gloves testimony, it was my opinion she came across as quite believable. For a moment my opinion that was a liar changed to she was mistaken. You can’t call Kavanaugh a liar because he has witnesses that he was never at such a party as described by Ford. Ford’s best friend has sworn Ford’s account never took place which was given under oath with the penalty of perjury if lied.

 

Dr. Ford has NO sworn backing for her account of being sexually assaulted. So, if it happened, she is mistaken about whom she accuses as perpetrator. BUT if you examine her High School antics, I find it possible she was coached into making a fabrication merely to prevent an Originalist Justice to serve on the Supreme Court. AND if that’s the case, Dr. Ford is a WICKED EVIL partisan Democrat.

 

Interestingly the blog CULT OF THE 1ST AMENDMENT – a source of cached Yearbook photos – was removed from Blogger. The Free Republic has a cross post of the removed blog less the photos.

Suppressed Blasey Ford Yearbooks Reveal Fast Times at Holton-Arms

 

By Paul Sperry

September 27, 2018

Real Clear Investigations

 

Democrats plan at Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to use the high school yearbooks of embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which they say imply he and his prep school pals regularly got drunk and boasted of sexual conquests, to discredit what they call his “choir boy defense” against sex-assault charges leveled by Christine Blasey Ford.

 

But Ford, whose story suffers from significant gaps in her memory, wasn’t exactly a choir girl. In fact, congressional sources say her own yearbooks, among other things, present a potential issue for her and her character, and Republicans are prepared to cite them in questioning her story through the female sex-crimes expert they’ve hired.

 

A committee staffer told RealClearInvestigations, “We have her yearbooks,” which had been mysteriously scrubbed from the Web prior to Ford coming out with her allegations. “She will not make a good witness.”

 

The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, noted that the annual class books feature a photo of an underage Ford attending at least one party, alongside a caption boasting of girls passing out from binge drinking. Her yearbooks also openly reference sexually promiscuous behavior by the girls, including targeting boys at Kavanaugh’s alma mater, Georgetown Prep, an all-boys school in the affluent Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C. Ford attended neighboring Holton-Arms School, an all-girls academy.

 

While congressional sources say Ford’s yearbooks could be an exhibit at the hearing, longtime Capitol Hill watchers caution that going after her reputation could backfire on Republicans.

 

“That’s a minefield, especially given the #MeToo movement,” one said.

 

A spokesman for Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley’s office declined to comment.

 

Other evidence indicates Ford, a popular cheerleader at the time, was immersed in an alcohol-fueled party culture and no stranger to “keg parties” in the D.C. area — or the “bar scene” along the Maryland and Delaware coast. In fact, Ford was known as a “party girl” on the Delaware shore during summer breaks, another source with direct knowledge of the congressional investigation said.

 

One report, moreover, recounts how Ford once got caught in “a romantic triangle” at Dewey Beach that ended with the two men getting into a fistfight over her.

 

At Holton-Arms, the source added, she was known by classmates, and even some parents, by a sexually derogatory nickname playing off her maiden name Blasey, suggesting she was promiscuous.

 

“She was not the wholesome Catholic girl they’re trying to portray her as,” the source said, making her claims of victimization at the hands of Kavanaugh “harder to believe.”

 

Ford and her attorney did not respond to requests for comment. But they have cast a much different narrative, suggesting Kavanaugh and other boys from Georgetown Prep aggressively targeted Ford and other reluctant girls from her school while plying them with alcohol. Specifically, Ford alleges Kavanaugh and another older boy took advantage of her at a house party somewhere in the Chevy Chase or Bethesda area of Maryland in the early 1980s.

 

She says she has suffered post-traumatic stress disorder from the alleged attack, which she says involved an inebriated Kavanaugh forcefully groping her on a bed over her clothes while clapping his hand over her mouth to keep her from screaming for help. She added that she has had to seek therapy and other medical treatment to deal with “panic attacks” and “anxiety” from the incident, which she did not report to authorities.

 

Ford cannot remember key details from that night, including the location of the house or the date of the party, while claiming to have consumed just “one beer” there. She says she told no one about the “assault” at the time, not even her close girlfriend, who she says was with her at the party, or her mother.

 

Ford claims the reason she didn’t tell her parents about almost being “raped” is that she didn’t want to get “in trouble” for drinking at a party.

 

“I did not want to tell my parents that I, at age 15, was in a house without any parents present, drinking beer with boys,” she said.

 

But classmates said the former cheerleader, who was known as “Chrissy,” was part of the underage drinking tradition that was no secret among Maryland prep schools in the early 1980s, when the drinking age was 18.

 

Her own school yearbooks (in which parents took out paid ads) celebrated “boys [and] beer” and pictured beer bottles and beer cans and scenes of boys and girls drinking at parties. One published a photo of Ford and other girls at a Halloween party alongside a caption boasting of “pass[ing] out” after playing “Quarters” and other binge-drinking games. Her father, Ralph Blasey, was president of the local country club.

 

Neither her parents nor her two siblings have come out to voice support for Ford, and they did not sign a family letter of support for her and her claims circulated by her husband.

 

The Holton-Arms yearbooks in question, which cover her sophomore, junior and senior years, are titled “Scribe ’82,” “Scribe ’83” and “Scribe ’84.”

 

Among other things, the annual books objectified men and even talked about hiring male strippers, including one in a “gold G-string,” for sweet 16 parties. They also featured the young Holton coeds dressed as Playboy bunnies and posing seductively atop desks, school-uniform skirts hiked up.

 

One section, “While the Parents Were Out,” talked about partying with boys at area house parties where kids got so drunk they “ruined” their parents’ “heirloom Persian rugs” with vomit.

“The tenth grade taught us how to party,” the girls bragged in another section. And, “Loss of consciousness is often an integral part of the party scene.”

 

A caption on another page talked about girls having “their choice of men” at the neighboring boys schools, including Georgetown Prep: “No longer confining ourselves to the walls of Landon and Prep, we plunged into the waters of St. John and Gonzaga with much success.”

 

Jay Martin, who went to school in the area at the time, asserted that Holton-Arms girls back in the 1980s were hardly innocent “victims” of Georgetown Prep boys.

 

“I am her age,” he said of Ford. “I went to high school next to Prep and knew lots of Holton-Arms girls. This is pure false memory syndrome.”

 

Added Martin: “One of my best women friends had Kavanaugh ask her out [and] she said he was ‘one of the nice ones.’ His mom was a judge. I mean, seriously?”
