From Hot Air:

Christine Blasey Ford Will Drive Across Country Because She Doesn’t Like Airplanes

JOHN SEXTON Posted at 7:21 pm on September 21, 2018

Maybe she could loop north to do some relaxing leaf-peeping in Minnesota and Maine along the way …

If she has a white Bronco it could be like 3,000 miles of OJ:

I hope she has a convertible to help her overcome her claustrophobia inside her car. But watch out for the Grand Canyon!

Maybe she could go to visit psychologist Homer Simpson:

What if the airline let her take onboard a huge peacock as her emotional support animal?

    My first momentary impression, reading this headline, was that she had decided to “take it on the road” in a whistle stop tour, and drive to Washington in a tour bus, giving speeches and meeting supporters. Alas, it’s not to be.

    Fear of flying is common, but unfortunately for her it does play into the narrative that she is a bit nutty.

    Technically, she’s wasting her time. She let the 10 pm deadline pass without responding to the Senate. Or is this just a big stunt where she will appear at Democrat fundraising rallies along the way? Then show up at the Capitol and demand to be heard. That would be so lame.

    I can’t believe there isn’t some wealthy Democrat who wouldn’t fly her in his Lear Jet. Or Bezos could deliver her in a special FedEx plane reserved only for her.

    I’m not seeing evidence that she has agreed to testify within the time frame. Shortly before the 10pm deadline, the Hill reported her lawyer was asking for one more day. If Grassley stays true to his word then that’s it.
    I’m sure it’s irrelevant that Kavanaugh would not sit on the next session, even if he is appointed to the Supreme Court, unless that appointment comes in before the end of next week.

    Ford has reportedly told friends she is uncomfortable in confined spaces, indicating a physical difficulty in making the trip by plane.

    But last night, CNN published a story saying Ford’s claustrophobia has been known to her friends for years though they only recently learned she blamed it on her alleged assault at age fifteen.

    This was the reason that Ford did not enjoy flying, DeVarney said — an airplane was “the ultimate closed space where you cannot get away.”…

    DeVarney said Ford also told her about how when Ford and her husband were remodeling their home, “she insisted that every room had to have an exit door to the outside.”

    Usually claustrophobics panic on planes because of the toilets. Flight attendants see this often enough, and they will allow the door to remain open and stand guard.

    Claustrophobia is genetic and heritability increases with age (like IQ), so people find themselves turning more claustrophobic as they get older if a parent was clastrophobic. The Freudian “trauma made me claustrophobic” explanation is less and less accepted these days because there usually turns out to be a claustrophobic parent or grandparent lurking in the patient’s history.

    Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova hinted, while on Laura Ingraham’s show yesterday, that some PGA golfers need to be interviewed regarding Christine Blasey Ford’s veracity. Today, on the Howie Carr Show on WRKO Boston, Howie Carr questioned DiGenova about what he was referring to. In a nutshell, DiGenova essentially said Blasey Ford is a lush and she is a PGA player stalker who some big-name players in the PGA have had some “interesting” interactions with. DiGenova didn’t elaborate, but he has connections with guys at high levels in federal law enforcement and has a good track record of dropping info stuff on the Howie Carr Show that that turns out to be true.

    Whites were smart in relation to most races. But they were dumb in relation to Jews who convinced whites to ‘trade’ their women(to blacks) and land(including Europe to Third World mobs) in exchange for Diversity necklace & opiate.

    What Jews pulled on whites actually makes Indians seem less retarded.

    Never fear, there is a solution to this problem.

    From the Archives: The Human Fly atop a DC-8
    By Scott Harrison

    During the 1976 National Air Races at Mojave, a stuntman going by the nickname the “The Human Fly” twice appeared atop a DC-8 piloted by well-known pilot Clay Lacy. After the first performance, staff writer Reggie Smith reported in the June 20, 1976, Los Angeles Times:

    The man looked visibly worried as aides strapped his legs and chest to the aeronautical brace atop the DC-8 jetliner. The brace was to be his only support during the 15-minute flight.

    He smiled and waved to the crowd below. Some of the spectators looked up in amazement as their cameras clicked away.

    He had billed himself as the “Human Fly,” the greatest daredevil that ever lived, and promised to prove it by riding on the top of a jet flying at speeds of more than 200 m.p.h. at 100 feet above ground.

    Dressed in a red-and-white jumpsuit, white cape and red platform shoes, The Fly wore a mask.

    “The Fly wants to remain anonymous because he doesn’t want to draw attention to himself,” said David Levin, his promotional agent.

    Levin claimed The Fly was the victim of an automobile accident which “60% of his body” was replaced with steel parts.

    “As a result of The Fly’s hospital experience, he says he will donate a substantial portion of his earnings to a recognizable charity,” Levin said.

    Finally, everything was ready before the assembled crowd of thousands Saturday at the annual California National Air Races at Mojave.

    As the plane was airborne, The Fly gestured with his hands. First, the sign of the cross, then a clinched fist and finally, as the plane headed toward the runway, the victory sign.

    When the plane landed, Fly was rushed away for a medical checkup, where the doctor gave him the OK to see members of the press.

    “It was a great feeling up there,” said the 29-year-old masked man. “I’m the greatest daredevil in the world.

    “The only problem I had up there was with my helmet,” he said. “A piece came off during the flight.

    “I’m going to be around for a long while yet,” he added. “Just look forward to seeing the greatest daredevil that ever lives.”

    He is scheduled to repeat the stunt today.

    You can’t blame her for trying to hold up the nation’s government at her whim. Petulant whimsy is SOP for females.

    “The Hill reported her lawyer was asking for one more day”

    But it isn’t really one more day, because the weekend intervenes. So it’s three more days to try to invent some bullshit story that people might actually buy. And weed is legal in California, so she’ll have all sorts of bullshit-enhancing drugs to assist her.

    Ford claims she first “remembered” the incident six years ago. She wrote a letter to Sen. Feinstein two months ago. It finally came out in the news two weeks ago. She’s had plenty of time to prepare her testimony. Judge Kavanaugh only heard of the allegations two weeks ago, yet he’s ready to defend himself right now.

    That’s an interesting question – are Schumer and his staff feeding Blasey and her lawyer delay tactics or is Blasey really that nuts and indecisive? Is delay really all they want out of it (and point scoring for the November election) because they know that her testimony will be a bust and Kav will be confirmed, so milk the political value of this (2018 – the 2nd Year of the Woman! Republicans are disrespectful to women) as long as you can?

    Or maybe Blasey is genuinely nuts and dealing w/ Blasey’s flakiness is what convinced Feinstein to sit on her letter in the 1st place?

    Up until now I thought that they were delaying hoping for a miracle that would actually prevent the confirmation – a real accuser would come forward or Trump would be indicted or something.

    In that case they would not have allowed Blasey to jump the shark. But now she has so I think it was a tactical decision by Schumey – this whole schtick must be polling well with women and they have to keep the charade going for as long as they can hoping that the effect won’t wear off before Election Day. Schumer is not worried about backlash because he knows the instant that her testimony goes up in a puff of smoke (1) it won’t be spun that way – instead it will be that evil white male Republican Senators were mean to her and (2) CNN will immediately change the subject to Trump’s underwear or something .

  134. Could they just give her anatomically correct dolls so she could re-enact the events?

    They promise to clean the life size lovey dovey dolls at these new sicko shops where you can rent them. Bring on the night, I can’t stand another hour of this rotting empire culture.

    They could also produce doll sized cans of Natty Light and ask her to point to how many she drank.

    “She was like, ‘I can’t deal with this. If he becomes the nominee, then I’m moving to another country. I cannot live in this country if he’s in the Supreme Court,’ ” her husband said. “She wanted out.”

    “She didn’t always get along with her parents because of differing political views,” Russell [Ford] said. “It was a very male-dominated environment. Everyone was interested in what’s going on with the men, and the women are sidelined, and she didn’t get the attention or respect she felt she deserved. That’s why she was in California, to get away from the D.C. scene.”

    As their relationship deepened, Ford told him that she’d been physically abused years earlier. He would learn the specifics of the event, including Kavanaugh’s name, during a couple’s therapy session years later. But then, he just listened.

    “I could tell she was uncomfortable going into all the details,” he recalled.

    California is (or used to be) filled with millions people who grew up on the East Coast or in the Midwest and moved to California because they liked the weather and the lifestyle or because their education or careers took them there. But Blasey moved there to escape her secret tormenter Kavanaugh, we now learn.

    Also in the article they refer to “political disagreements” with her Daddy, the ex-Pres of Burning Rock CC. In other words, he is probably a conservative Republican and she is a raging leftist with daddy issues (but I’mg guessing no problem with daddy say helping her buy a house in Silicon Valley). And Kav is a father figure onto whom she can transfer her daddy issues. Julia Child was a similar rich girl with daddy issues who married late – she was from Pasadena and so ended up in Cambridge, MA. Blasey is such a stereotypical leftist white girl that it’s not funny.

  142. @Jack D

    The problem for Blasey and the Dems is that they are caught between a number of sets of facts already part of the record.

    The fundamental problem they’ve got is that the incident she describes, even as she has described it, seems utterly trivial compared to the reaction they want out of the public to it –namely rejection of a SC nominee.

    What to do?

    They have clearly taken the tack of building up that incident as much as they can by turning it into something life changing for Blasey.

    But everything they do to exaggerate the effect of the incident makes her look like a complete fruitcake. And how credible is a fruitcake?

    The other fact that is part of the record is that she never talked about this to anyone until a few years ago, despite its supposedly damaging her life in countless ways. Really? She, a psychologist herself, never sought out therapy though her life had been crippled by this incident?

    I think one of the delusions her handlers suffer under is their own immersion in the feminist schtick regarding so-called sexual assault. They believe all this junk they are making up. To them, it makes sense that being groped at 15 really does permanently alter your life, and haunt you forever. They don’t seem to get that normal people see it as absurd and over-the-top. It’s like they are all Title IX coordinators, and their only audience is other university administrators.

Anyway, so how did Ms. FoF get back and forth from grad school – did she drive there? Travel by ship? Sailboat?

    I know that they made a concerted effort to cleanse her social media before she was presented to the national media, but surely there must be snapshots of her on vacation in Thailand or Australia or some other global surfing hotspot.

    In general, that’s the problem with a lot of LibDem stuff – they live in an echo chamber (and shout down other POVs) so they have no reality check. So they build themselves up into a fever pitch – Kavanaugh is coming for your birth control pills! He is going to force you to bear children! Being groped once at age 15 gives you PTSD forever and ruins your entire life!

    Right wingers seem to have a broader range of views (not to mention that the case of the other side is endlessly put before them in the media every day) so the nutcases remain as fringe figures instead of occupying a respectable central position in their movement. You had guys like Whiskey saying that Obama would abrogate the Constitution and refuse to leave office but without backup his echoes died instead of being amplified. Also leftists are supposed to be tolerant so they don’t call people out on eccentric behavior – you are a guy who wants to dress like a girl – fine, no problem. You fear vaccines and electro-magnetic radiation – sure that’s a valid POV. You eat only ethically sourced organic quinoa and nothing else – sure, whom am I to condemn your diet? So women like Chrissy just go further and further out on the deep end, especially if they are trying to get attention as their looks fade and no one ever calls them on it. After a while you are convinced that everyone is (or at least thinks like) a Brooklyn hipster – OF COURSE groping leaves you with lifelong PTSD – are you some kind of white male monster who doesn’t believe that? (Who in Democrat circles would be brave enough to contradict this – see what just happened to Buruma).

    And then you are shocked, shocked, shocked when Hillary loses. How is it possible that even 1 single person voted for Trump? Yes there are a few deplorable old white men, but how is it possible that he won an election when all right thinking people hate his guts?

    Although there are ways to do the detective work to find out whether she has flown before, the easiest way would have been through social media posts; many users feel compelled to overshare details of their remote vacations, the destination of which may often be accessible only by flying. Then you would either directly know from the posts, or through date/destination information, your detective work would be greatly assisted. In our surveillance crazy world, full passenger manifests are highly likely to be archived somewhere.

    But, as I understand it, her social media was wiped clean prior to the accusations, not by coincidence I am sure. The FBI could still do detective work, but as they have been found to be a nest of #resistance types, who knows how hard they would try.

    No, but I went to a party hosted by 2 19-year-old guys because there was a 14-year-old guy I liked to who used to hang out there.

    So she might have been hoping to run into someone else she liked. Or maybe she was interested in Brett, (young photos of him look quite attractive), but imagined some kind of romantic cuddle-session (“I’ve been wanting to get to know you for a while), not him and a friend ganging up on her.

    but if you present yourself at a party with boys and booze and no parents then presumably your goal was not to go there to discuss French literature.

    Madame Bovary is the debut novel of French writer Gustave Flaubert, published in 1856. The character lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life.

    When the novel was first serialized in La Revue de Paris between 1 October 1856 and 15 December 1856, public prosecutors attacked the novel for obscenity. The resulting trial in January 1857 made the story notorious. After Flaubert’s acquittal on 7 February 1857, Madame Bovary became a bestseller (no doubt due to the desire of the reading bourgeoisie to be épaté and judge for themselves whether the novel was obscene or a mistresspiece. A century later the same process was activated to make Lady Chatterley’s Lover into a best seller.)

    The love affair is ecstatic at first, but Léon grows bored with Emma’s emotional excesses, and Emma grows ambivalent about Léon. Emma indulges her fancy for luxury goods with purchases made on credit from the crafty merchant Lheureux, who arranges for her to obtain power of attorney over Charles’ estate. Emma’s debt steadily mounts.

    When Lheureux calls in Bovary’s retail therapy debt, Emma pleads for money from several people, including Léon and Rodolphe, only to be turned down. In despair, she swallows arsenic and dies an agonizing death.

    From summary of plot of Madame Bovary. Sounds just like the kind of thing young Christine would have been into. Or perhaps she was there to discuss Anna Karenina.

    Fortunately Roman Polanski was not at the party.

    Seidman? Ford’s lawyer is named Katz. And the senator who orchestrated all this is Feinstein.

    The Madame Bovary obscenity trial was a publicity stunt by Hachette the publisher.

    The way it worked in France there was no censorship. Anything could be published Any member of the public could go to the local prosecutor and complain about a book the person deemed obscene A prosecutor /censor would read it and decide.

    If the prosecutor / censor decided it was obscene the publisher could appeal and there’d be a trial. If the prosecutor/ censor decided the book was okay, the complainer could appeal and there ‘d be a trial.

    Guess who the complainer who insisted on a trial was? A retired Hachette employee. The whole thing was a publicity set up.

    Victor Hugo was also a playwright and did the same thing. He’d pay a reviewer to write the play was obscene and violent. So everyone would go.
    Hugo even paid people to go to the play spill out into the steeet and fight about the play. People he paid were students and waiting at the unemployment office.

    Audiences flocked to his plays.

    Mme Bovary was based on a real suicide of a woman who got the family in so much debt she killed her self

    There was a lot of political preaching in Mme Bovary. Flaubert strongly disapproved of education for middle and working class girls, especially farmers daughters as Emma was.

    Her father sent her to a convent boarding school where she was allowed to read, horrors!!! Romantic novels and fashion magazines. So she was educated above her station how dreadful. She was a deplorable with an education.
    Flaubert felt farmers wives and daughters should barely learn to read and count eggs and spend their lives as farm workers in. Bedraggled work clothes.

    It was the convent education that ruined Emma and led to her overspending.

    Flaubert didn’t like merchants either. There are big sections where the evil merchant tempts her with clothes pretty household things. and credit.

    Flaubert sneers at the husband too. He went to a 2 tier medical school and is just an average Dr.

    Flaubert was a liberal intellectual who looked down on middle class people and small businesses.

    Today he’d be a liberal Democrat sneering at us.

    I assumed the people who were coaching her needed a delay for some reason.

    First Roy Moore, now Kavanaugh. FTR, I tend to believe there was a grain of truth in the first accusation against Moore, but I don’t believe a word this woman is saying. But either way, it doesn’t matter – we have statutes of limitations for a reason, and, (short of murder) no one should pay any attention to any mere accusation about an incident that supposedly took place 35-40 years ago. And this time it’s even more obvious, actually it’s blatantly obvious, that the whole thing’s been orchestrated, with Feinstein sitting on the letter for two months, but leaking it out to make sure someone raised it at the last minute.

    But the Democrats probably know they can’t keep going to this well of decades-old, unproveable allegations of sexual assault, or it will become so obvious that even Chuck Grassley will grow a pair.

    So how long before they start finding a black person to claim that just last year or so the nominee called them the N Word during a road rage incident? That would be much more recent, just as unproveable, and even worse than rape.

    “stop enabling female hysteria.”

    ApurupA Balasubramanyam tells us:

    Why It’s Sexist to Call a Woman Hysterical

    I’m sure every woman has been called hysterical at least once in her life. The first time I was called hysterical, I was talking to a man about how diversity is important in media. … The man cut me off in the middle of the sentence and said, “Why are you being so emotional? You’re hysterical.” 

    1. It is a way to shut down a woman from making an argument.
    When I was called hysterical, I immediately shut down. I forgot what my argument was, and I began questioning myself instead. Was I looking at this too emotionally? Was I being too “girly”? It only took one word. All he had to do was use one word and I shut down.

    2. Women don’t even have to be “emotional” to be called hysterical, they just have to disagree with a man.
    We all saw this during the presidential debate, people even made memes about it. … Hilary was the calm and composed one between the two, yet was being called too emotional to be fit for president. If a woman shows even a little bit of emotion when she is speaking, it invalidates her entire argument.

    3. Is being emotional even really that bad?
    What is wrong if we are emotional when we present an argument? It just shows that we are passionate; that we care about the conversation. It shows investment and dedication. We’re not making any decisions based on our high emotions (which I personally don’t think is bad, but that’s another article), just presenting them in an emotional manner. Women are supposed to be the more emotional beings, but the second we show those emotions, it is wrong.

    PS: She’s real and she’s diverse!!

    Too late – the damage is done.

    From today’s NYT, a gloating headline:

    Kavanaugh Was Supposed to Be a Midterm Boon for G.O.P. Not Anymore.

    Knowing that they didn’t have the votes to block confirmation, digging up this woman was a win/win – even if Kav gets confirmed, he will have a permanent cloud hanging over him, and more importantly, they have taken what would have been a plus for the GOP in November (excite the base with a pro-life justice) into a minus – now it is the pussy hat crowd that is excited instead. Best case, Kav ends up not getting confirmed and many by the time Trump gets his 2nd choice before the Senate he has lost his majority and can never get anyone confirmed. You’ve got to hand it to him, Chucky Schumer is a hell of a political operator.

    Of course having a 5th column of RINOs helps him enormously. More posthumous revenge from “The Maverick”.

    Why are there only Republican Mavericks? Even the most ostensibly conservative Dem observes party discipline and will only vote with the R’s if the vote is already lost and Schumer lets them go so they can help themselves with the home state voters. Otherwise the palest blue Senators vote true blue – they are only conservative on paper when election time come around.

    Reconstructing what happened, Feinstein gets the letter in July but looks into it and sees that the woman is a flake, she says she wants to remain anonymous and there is no corroboration. But Capitol Hill leaking like a sieve, Schumer’s staff gets wind of it. Chucky couldn’t give a damn about Blasey’s privacy – he realizes that the letter is political gold and he is not going to let a crisis go to waste.

  210. @Jack D

    At this point, I see the Democrats’ machinations as far more likely to backfire than succeed.

    Especially given Keyser’s denial of any memory regarding a party at which Kavanaugh was present, I don’t see how anybody not already a leftist partisan will believe Blasey’s account. There are other inconsistencies that are coming to light (read the full thread):

    If Blasey testifies, she’ll have to explain away these problems. I don’t see how it is going to look good on TV.

    At this point, though, and precisely because of these problems, I would guess she won’t actually show up. Spin as she might, that would be a major blow to her credibility.

    I don’t see how the Republican base would be demoralized in the face of this sort of dirty tricks. Instead, I’d expect them to be angry and motivated.

    The pussy hats will be too, of course. (Any woman willing to dress up to look ridiculous for a cause is always going to be motivated to vote.) That’s never been in question.

    But the real question is how about voters in the middle? I’d guess that if they’re in the middle, they are pretty impartial, and fairness will count. They will be very skeptical of Blasey’s story, and will see the whole circus as a political stunt. I don’t see that as a positive for the Dems.

    On balance I’d say the Republicans get a positive out of this electorally. It may not be many votes, but they don’t need many votes.

    Kavanaugh will labor under something of a cloud, of course. But that may be motivating for him, in a way the Dems will hate. I don’t see him hesitating to call out political machinations as they make their appearance in cases before him — which is true of Thomas as well, of course.

    I’d say that by far the most important issue here is: will Kavanaugh now be able to get enough votes for confirmation?

    This comes down to the question: are there enough RINOs and red state Dems who will vote against Kavanaugh to bring him down?

    And in particular we are probably talking about Flake.

    Now Flake is a dangerous fellow. He is not up for re-election, by his own choice, and so now considers himself free to vote on principle.

    Unfortunately, that principle is Spite.

    But I doubt that at this point he will have any cover after the charade finishes to justify voting against Kavanaugh while pretending to be conservative.

    Likewise, the red state Dems will be hard pressed.

    I’d expect Kavanaugh to be confirmed, which is, again and actually, the single most important thing.

    Yeah, the Democrats might end up finding out that traumatic experieces really do change the way people think.

    Perhaps I’m a dreamer, but if enough male judges see firsthand that women have way too much power in our society, they might help to roll back some of the worst feminist excesses.

    Unfortunately I disagree. Just like the accusations themselves there will be very little cost or consequence to the Dems misbehaviour. Instead, they will be memory-holed like almost every public accusation of sexual assault that turns out to be false.

  216. @Jack D

    The biggest difference between Clarence Thomas’ nomination and Bret Kavanaugh’s is the advent of the internet. It has made it much harder for the MSM to control the narrative and allowed people to fight back against smears.

    The Blasey Ford accusations are particularly vulnerable and could very easily fall to pieces over the next four days before her interview. Crowd sourcing allows for old boy fiends, ex-husbands, political opponents, and people looking for revenge to come out of the woodwork. In the past this all could be controlled but now they have to hope everything goes perfectly. And who knows what they will turn up on social media and the internet about her? These next four days might be very interesting and this could turn into a rout in favor of the Republicans.

    The real wake up call should be for Cuckservatives who think that having gone to Catholic School and having one wife, daughters, and no affairs is cover from feminist targeting for sexual harassment / male sexual shaming. No one is safe, not that they ever were.

    Chad in Chief Trump knows this but he was the CEO of a large company and had a television show so he was an employer of a large company as well as being in the market which made him a bulls eye target. He or his executives have probably been falsely accused many times and used NDA to get rid of the nuisance claims in spite of his protests to the contrary of not being a “settler”.

    Another thing not mentioned, is that by all accounts Kavanaugh is a competent judge. He should have known better that false accusations occur because it is rampant in the family court system. Granted, he is in another area of law, but if he did not know, perhaps he is not so good.

Mitch McConnell recommended Thapar probably because his Asian heritage confers a limited amount of protection against anything too crazy.
