Ford-Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Allegation

Recommended Posts

1) Is this a political hit-job or a legitimate issue?

2) Rank the hypocrisy level of the left-wing media, the Democrats and the Hollywood elites on a scale from 1-100.

(CNN and the Dems didn’t care about Clinton’s rapes or sexual harassment, although the allegations were more specific, had more credible evidence, and in some cases resulted in civil settlements. What’s more is that the Dems ruthlessly slandered Bill’s accusers but now they’re saying that “all victims need to be believed”. 

The Hollywood elites pretend to care about this victim, but they gave Roman Polanski an Oscar and a huge round of applause after he fled the country to escape justice after he raped a child that was incapacitated from the quaaloods that Polanski gave them).

3) Is it possible for someone to be a victim of a “harrowing event” like an attempted rape, and yet the victim and witnesses can not remember specific things like the time, location and date? 

4) Is it totally bogus that they’re demanding that Ford won’t testify until the FBI investigates the story, despite the fact that rape cases by civilians are out of their jurisdiction, and the statute of limitations has expired? They’re also trying to get the defendant to testify first, which goes against a defendant’s right to a proper chance for their own defence....

It's a political hit job that only has legs because of current #MeToo trendiness and Trump haters.   Democrats are desperate...they have no power.

To put this in perspective, there was a re-opened Senate hearing for Anita Hill when Justice Clarence Thomas was accused of sexual harrassment, but it only delayed the inevitable.

If a credible finding of assault by Judge Kavanaugh cannot be substantiated, he will join the Supreme Court bench.

If they can't guilt certain republicans to vote against Kavanaugh, then they can all claim victim status and use it to try to turn women voters against the republicans for the mid-terms.  I'd say Ford is a patsy, but as every day progresses, I think she has a political agenda she's trying to fulfill too.  Whatever the details, it's all a load of manipulation.

I believe it's a political agenda, one which IMO she didn't think would end up at Senate Hearings...

The democrats sat on this for three months, so if they were serious about it, they should’ve told about it right away. .  Sitting on an allegation of sexual assault for maximum political impact is an “extreme abuse of power .

Chairman Grassley delayed the Kavanaugh vote, offering accommodations to Ford  and gave her an opportunity to testify.  This whole “Republicans are silencing her” card is the biggest load of B.S.  I’ve heard all week.   Democrats have created a mockery of American politics.

The accuser has to prove the allegation, otherwise we have a Jacobin system of justice in which “J’accuse” be­comes the standard and anyone can be ruined on a whim or a vendetta.

Well, I put this in a status update but believe it should be here also...   

Someone from the Committee has said that they have contacted five people alleged to be at party.  4 deny any knowledge of the party and allegations – Dr. Ford is the fifth person and the only one who has not provided them with a statement

 Christine Ford has named her "lifelong friend" Leland Ingham Keyser who has no recollection of it

My dad always told me that you can tell a liar by how their story is being sold.  This is total bullshit.  I suspect she (and the dems) will try to find a way out of testifying and still blame it on the republicans.

She's agreed to testify.

No, there is whole new generation of Americans who have never seen borking before, and Canadians who always need something better to watch and discuss than what's on CBC.

Exactly how can she now testify under oath about this when all her named witnesses have denied any knowledge of the allegation?

That's how it works.  Charge him, get everyone to testify under oath, let a jury figure it out.  It's not like it hasn't been done before.

Exactly.  This is just more American entertainment for all.  I'm not really following the current season as much.

Not for the #MeToo movement...they want to dispense with all that and presume that women are always telling the truth.

You don't need corroboration to testify.  If she is believable then there's an impact on the Republican Rape All-Star Team that runs the show now...

As long as the courts don't, that's okay.

Court is way too late for some of these cases....#DukeLacrosseTeam

And the courts are not always right.  Nobody's perfect.

I don't know the full details, but from what I do remember I agree with you.

The courts are not supposed to be biased but sometimes are.  Everyone/everything else is.

When the Democrats asked HW Bush to have the FBI investigate the Thomas, Hill affair during Thomas' confirmation, Bush agreed. Trump and the present GOP aren't so interested in finding out the truth.

 

Chuck Grassley was on that confirmation panel as well. How standards change, and not for the better.

Prof. Ford needs the extra time to get her story straight and receive lots of coaching from the Democrats. 

Expect lots of tears and shock...even though she said nothing about the alleged assault before.

Republicans may work in a few jabs at Keith Ellison since he is deputy  DNC chair.

...then Kavanaugh will still get out of committee for a full Senate vote anyway.
