This has, in my opinion, been an unfortunate week in the politics of our republic.

From a partisan political point of view the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Judge Kavanaugh. have ended well, with Kavanaugh being voted through by the committee. The entire Senate will vote on his appointment to the Supreme Court next week.

Goodwhites are fighting a fierce rearguard action, though. A key figure here has been Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, a Mitt Romney-style open-borders social conservative who is retiring from politics at the end of this year.

Flake announced this morning, Friday, that he would vote to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate. Then midday he was cornered in an elevator by two shrieking women and apparently lost his nerve: He told the Judiciary Committee when he got out that he’d vote aye to advance the nomination only on condition the full Senate delays their vote for a week. [Trump agrees to FBI probe of Kavanaugh, bows to Flake, Dems, by Lisa Mascaro, Alan Fram and Mary Clare Jalonick, AP, September 27, 2018] Score one for hysterical harpies, score zero for the dignity of Senatorial process.

Favorite books of mine when I was a child were Richmal Crompton’s “William” stories, about a high-spirited suburban English boy named William Brown who did naughty things and got into adventures. William’s nemesis was a little girl named Violet Elizabeth Bott, whose main technique for getting her own way with William and his friends was to announce that if she didn’t get her way, she would scream and scream until she threw up. In British English, with a lisp, her line was: “I’ll thcream and thcream and thcream ’till I’m thick.”

It worked with eleven-year-old William and his pals; clearly it still works with Senator Flake.

Still, unless the opposition can pull off a new stunt between now and next Friday—which can’t be ruled out—failing that, the omens for eventual confirmation don’t look too bad.

The thing people want to know is, what effect will these confirmation hearings have on the mid-term elections?

It’s not easy to figure out. With the Presidency not in play, mid-term races are more local. Property taxes, highway maintenance, and shenanigans in the State Assembly loom larger than relations with China or terrorism or the National Debt. If you don’t know all the local issues and controversies—and I’ll admit I don’t—it makes the mid-terms hard to call.

And then there’s the famous base, the voters who take their politics most seriously. They’re more prominent in mid-term voting than less committed types who will show up every four years to help pick a President but take a political nap in between times. Both big parties have a base, of course.

What makes the effect of the Kavanaugh hearings hard to estimate is that there was something here to please both bases. The mid-terms may hinge on whose base got pleased more.

Prior to these hearings, the phrase being bandied about was “enthusiasm gap.” The Democrats’ base voters were morefired up, pundits told us, their hatred of Trump just more intense after two years’ exposure to him, their ranks fortified by two more annual cohorts of adult voters coming out of our colleges.[ The ‘Enthusiasm Gap’ Could Turn A Democratic Wave Into A Tsunami, By Nate Silver, Five Thirty Eight, March 14, 2018]

Those cohorts of younger voters have been marinated for four years in CultMarx ideology from anti-white, anti-male professors; and they’ve been subjected to careful sculpting of news and commentary by the social-media monopolies whose products they are addicted to.

Contrariwise, the pre-hearings wisdom went, Trump’s base was disheartened and disappointed by Trump’s failure to accomplish the big-ticket items they voted for in 2016: firm enforcement of immigration laws, properly defended borders, disentangling us from military commitments abroad.

It’s nice that the economy’s doing well, we got tax cuts, and our Israeli embassy has been moved to Jerusalem, but those are not things that brought out the Trump voters two years ago. Trump talks a good game, but he’s visibly failing at the one thing above all a President needs to succeed at: getting Congress to turn his proposals into legislation.

So that was the situation pre-hearings. The Tutsis (Goodwhite Democrats) were still fired up by hatred of Trump and indignation at Mrs. Clinton’s losing in 2016—unfairly, they are sure. The Hutus (aka Deplorables) were discontented, their 2016 passion deflated by the President’s failure to move us any real distance away from invade-the-world, invite-the-world neoconnery.

The Kavanaugh hearings were not displeasing to Tutsis. Dr Ford’s testimony, and the whole story she told, reinforced their fantasies of preppy white men having their way, coasting through life on arrogance and privilege, while non-male non-white serfs groan and suffer under the iron heel of oppression. So Tutsis are still fired up. The hearings did nothing to cool their ardor.

The Hutus will, however, I think, have gained more from the proceedings, thereby closing the enthusiasm gap some. There was a lot for a Hutu to like there.

Mainly there was Judge Kavanaugh himself, of course. He was firm and clear, he showed spine, and he gave as good as he got.

He mixed some yin in with the yang, too, some feminine in with the masculine, choking up when he talked about his daughter praying for Dr Ford.

If I am at all representative, Hutu men winced at that. We’d rather a man kept his composure in public. Hutu women, however, really go for that stuff. I doubt the Republican Party lost male Hutu votes on account of Judge Kavanaugh’s tears, but it picked up a few thousand on the distaff side.

ORDER IT NOW

Similarly, though in reverse, with Dr Ford’s testimony. Tutsi voters just had confirmed what they already knew: that women are helpless victims of the evil patriarchy; but that a few, possessed of boundless courage, dare to kick against the pricks—that’s a Biblical allusion, you folks sniggering in the back row there—and expose the sneering preppy rapist. “Dr Ford, I am in awe of your bravery,” swooned Ellen DeGeneres, as if the woman had rescued infants from a burning building.

Hutus watching Dr Ford, on the other hand, got reminders of all the things they dislike about Tutsi women—the kind of women who end up as Professors of Psychology at colleges in Silicon Valley. The glassy frown, the snippy self-righteousness, the vocal fry and rising tones: Hutu teeth were being set on edge from sea to shining sea.

One reason given for Mitt Romney’s loss in 2012 was that he reminded us of the CEO whose corporate cutbacks cost us our job. Dr Ford reminded us of the corporate Human Resources Director who scolded us for not showing up at the Diversity and Inclusion seminar.

So net-net there, I’d say there will surely have been a closing of the enthusiasm gap. Tutsis are stewing in righteous indignation just as they were before, perhaps just slightly more. Hutus saw a man take a stand against the mob, throw some of their b-s back in their smug faces. It was heartening, encouraging.

And then there were the Senators themselves.

You have to think that GOP party bosses have been hearing from their voters this past couple of weeks. I don’t know how else to account for Lindsey Graham going off like an air-raid siren the way he did. (And that simile, for the benefit of the back row again, is a pop culture reference.)

On the particular issue of Lindsey Graham I have mixed feelings. It was fun to watch the Senator fume and froth, but I don’t want to see his stock rise any higher than it is. On the National Question Graham’s been firmly and consistently supportive of the cheap-labor open-borders lobbies, the modern equivalent of the Slave Power. I don’t want to see a guy like that have any more authority and influence than he currently has.

It’s nice that Senator Graham has found his high dudgeon at last. Now that he’s found it, though, how long will it be before he turns it against immigration patriots?

That’s a quibble, though. Overall, I do believe the Kavanaugh hearings have been a positive for Trumpism. The hearings have made ever more clear the turn to Leninism among the Tutsi elites, in particular among congressional Democrats. By “Leninism” I mean the pursuit of political power by all means available, clean or dirty, without moral or ethical restraints.

Nothing matters to these people but power: not our institutions, not our laws and customs, not out history, not our Constitution, not truth or falsehood, not science or reason, not decency or respect, only Lenin’s who-whom—whose boot is stomping on whose face? They are determined that it shall be their boot, our face; and in their view, every means is legitimate to bring that about.

The U.S. Senate was a last bastion of constitutional collegiality, even into the Trump era. In April last year three Democratic Senators voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. I wouldn’t bet on that happening this time around. We are now firmly in an era of smash-mouth politics, of Leninist who-whom.

GOP voters have been waking up to this. That’s why they chose Trump in 2016 over a raft of more traditional, gentlemanly, fight-fair Republican candidates—the types we knew would fold like cheap suits any time someone barked “racist!” or “sexist!” at them. Trump, the voters perceived, is not like that. Trump can play the smash-mouth game. That’s why we wanted him.

It’s also why a lot of us, especially in the older cohorts, have mixed feelings about Trump. Some of that is just a natural fondness for the familiar. The more collegial, well-mannered style of politics is what we grew up with. We hate to see it go; we just don’t think there’s anything we can do to stop the going.

Geezer nostalgia’s only some of it, though. There are good reasons for a thoughtful person of any generation to look with foreboding on this newer, coarser style of politics.

If personal character, decency, and forbearance count for less, while ability to smash mouths counts for more, we shall be heading down towards Third World-style gangster politics. If some smart, conscientious patriot in the gentlemanly George Kennan mould is shut out of public service because he said something unflattering about Mexicans or tried to grope some girl at a high-school party, his place will be taken by someone colder, more ruthless, more selfish, more skilled at lying.

The key word there is of course “gentlemanly.” Could any concept be more at odds with the zeitgeist than gentlemanliness? It’s hard not to think there’s a demographic dimension to this. That older style of courtesy, forbearance, and compromise that used to inform our politics was a white-European thing, perhaps particularly an Anglo-Saxon-Celtic thing.

As that population dwindles while others swell and organize, who-whom takes over, and we view ourselves not as fellow-citizens in a common polity, but as victims and oppressors.

You don’t have to like this transformation. I personally prefer the older, more collegial style. The Kavanaugh hearings, however, made it clearer than ever, clear enough for even the least attentive GOP voters to see, that this is our politics today, the only game in town.

If one side is playing smash-mouth, the other side has a plain choice. Either we play smash-mouth too, or we lose all our teeth while the enemy keeps his. In Orwell’s stark formulation: “If someone drops a bomb on your mother, go and drop two bombs on his mother.”

    FBI SHOULD CHARGE CHRISTINE FORD FOR PERJURY.

    Christine Ford has taken the false allegations racket a bit too far.

    She is probably lying, as how come she did not call 911 or file a police report if this happened?

    She comes from a family of lawyers. She has an army of attorneys who would have rushed and filed police reports and filed civil suits if any man had dared touch her.

    That did not happen for 3 decades for one reason—nothing happened on the night in question.

    The Democrats, who are a criminal party, must have coached her and offered her a few 100K under the table, disguised as speaking fees, or scholarship, for manufacturing this racket.

  3. Kavanaugh has proved himself unfit for the position of supreme court justice. Under heavy fire, he has shown that he is a spineless coward, a crying baby incapable of fighting back like a man. Moreover, he is a total idiot.

    What did he expect, that the baby killers were going to accept even the possibility of a supreme court justice who may vote to overturn Wade VS Roe and the end of Planned Parenthood? He has shown that this totally expected attack took him by surprise. What a fool!

    Courage under fire? Call the Marines, but not Kavanaugh.

    I agree that politics in the US is coarsening like our pop culture and increasingly looking like 3rd world politics. This is where America is headed as we become more culturally enriched:

    The left has always been the indignant, end justifies the means crowd. Since Trump’s election they’ve completely gone off the rails, violent protests everywhere, pink pussyhats, antifa, crazy nutjob screaming protesters at every Kavanaugh hearing. Trump is a straight talker not a politician, but he is not hysterical. The left is hysterical and beyond reason.

    The WASP culture of integrity, self-restraint and good manners is gone in America, because this is no longer a WASP run country, it’s now a Jew run country. Jews are dishonest and lack self-restraint (they call that chutzpah), don’t know good manners if it hits them in the face. Dishonest people always make the honest look stupid. That’s why the GOP,the party of old fashion WASPs is now the stupid party as Ann Coulter calls them, because they actually believe the (((Dems))) even when they get screwed over time and time again. Jews hate Trump because he reminds them of themselves, sharp elbow, dishonest and without restraint. That’s why they needed that Mueller investigation to bring him in line.

    You’re right about Trump being a big disappointment so far in immigration. Caving here and calling for an FBI investigation makes him look as stupid as Flake. Fat chance FBI will close it in a week. This is the same agency that gave us Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Ohr, Strzok, Page, the Steele Dossier, owned by Deep State and corrupt to the core. These GOP fools are once again playing right into the hands of the (((Dems))) – Feinstein, Blumenthal, Schumer and Ford’s lawyer Bromwich, already complaining about the ‘artificial timeline’. No one can ever outcon the Jews.

    Three women? Out of all the women who knew him and his childhood, enough to condemn him disgrace? Frankly and I doubt it. But given the times we live in he will probably be convicted of witchcraft or whatever the current terminology for witchcraft is. I wish him the best of luck.
    Make no mistake I am not even a Republican and I don’t even believe in the kind of s*** they are laying down.
    They and the Democrats will do pretty much anyting to wiggle like snakes to keep Z foreign and corporate campaign funds coming in. It has nothing to do with democracy. You don’t live in democracy any more than we in Canada do.

    I certainly agree.

    Lying is a troublesome endeavor for the liar, and my was she ever lying.

    I was just out for dinner and the women next our table were going on & on about the lies that have been coming forth about Kav, and this is in a very ‘liberal’ neck of the woods.

    Derbyshire has it pegged right. “The Deplorables” are coming out ahead on this matter.

    Orwell–quite the genius, it hardly needs repeating–didn’t invent the idea, though, of course. Nope, it’s straight from the Elders of the Torah, with their ‘eye for an eye’ notion of progressive human interaction. So naturally (given who rules) it’s becoming the order of the day now.

    Every single thing which used to represent Civilization is being rent asunder, and morality is very much of a piece with the rest of it.

    A key figure here has been Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, a Mitt Romney-style open-borders social conservative who is retiring from politics at the end of this year.

    What an unmitigated disaster for our nation this “Senator” has been.
    Would only that he had retired earlier.

  10. As usual Mr. Derbyshire you seem to be oblivious to the obvious. The reason we are in this situation is because of a Congress controlled by your Zionist friends. When the Jewish Mob at the Universities and Antifa attack— the Repubs run and hide. They are afraid of black mobs run by Zionist and Bolsheviks Jews. Sheldon Andelson runs the Republicans and Soros runs the Democrats. They refuse to back whites and Christians because they have sold everyone out for the Shekels. They are nothing but cowards.

    They won’t drop any bombs on any of the Leftist Communistos because the FBI and Intelligence Agencies as well as the Mossad has everything on them from Child Porn to under the table financial deals. The Deep State will choose the President and Judges. Look what the Deep State has done to Trump because they under estimated his populist message that rang true to voters. The Repubs will not grow a pair of balls and fight for anything. The sickness of the Jews has won. They control all of the media and all of the economic and social pathways. Your Wasp friends have sold America to Israel. USA Today has just published a hit piece on Kavanaugh calling him a child molester and that he should not be allowed to be with children. The Neocon Jews have taken over Trump’s Foreign Policy and will wage eternal wars for Israel. The destruction of a America is just part of this process and it starts with the control of everything including the courts that now have 3 Jewish Justices and two of them had almost no qualifications for the job except that they were Jewish.

    If the Republicans had any balls they would have asked Ford about the Soros’ Organizations she belongs to. They would have asked if it was common for her to get drunk and not remember things about parties she had gone to. They would have asked her about getting drunk, having sex and blacking out. Not one of her friends could remember anything about the supposed encounter. They would have attacked the entire Psychoanalysis that she underwent because most of it has no scientific validity. Instead they let the Democrats control the entire process.

    This game plan by Zionist and Bolshevik Jews is always the same. They have destroyed just about every civilization they have come in contact with and they will destroy us too. If you are waiting your Republican friends in Congress to protect America forget it because they work for a different flag!

  12. In the USA nominations of supreme court judges are political nominations, because the separation of powers does not exist in the USA, the supreme court has more power than politicians, they can overthrow laws that politicians have decided on.

    In the Netherlands this is not possible, of course laws cannot contradict the constitution, but our politicians decide on consistency between laws and the constitution.
    Our high court is not allowed to judge incosistency between laws and constitution.

    Thus the great fuss in in the USA on nomination of high court judges.

    One of the reasons Britain is leaving the EU is that they do not want their laws overruled by a European court.

    Then about the allegations.
    As far as I know the exprsssion ‘date rape’ just exists in english.
    That this expression exists shows, in my opinion, that date rape is common.
    How, after 36 or so years, can be established what happened, impossible, in my opinion.

    So, from this side of the Atlantic, just an interesting spectacle.

  13. The way I get it Flake is retiring at the end of the year. So why not derail his party’s Supreme Court Nominee on his way out? Is Flake really receiving instructions from feckless cunts in elevators? I totally disagree with Derb’s notion that Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Certainly not before the election. In a weeks time several more new accusers will emerge. In a weeks time the FBI will still be sharpening their pencils. In a weeks time another weeks time will be needed.

    Maybe somebody will explain to me why Flake needed Kavanaugh’s scalp. What is it about Arizona?

    Yes. This will hurt the Jacobin/Maoist left in the election. Even Never Trump Rod Dreher had to climb down from his fence on the side of Judge Kavanaugh. But there will be no peace. Anywhere. Until after the final collapse of Imperial Washington.

  14. We still have to wait to see whether Judge Kavanaugh’s appointment will go through, so the most important practical consequence of this shameful exercise in character assassination is as yet unknown. I’m pretty sure he’ll eventually be appointed.

    But, I think some critical theoretical aspects of the context in which this battle was waged were definitively clarified in the course of this shameful and hugely destructive effort by the Democrat leadership to destroy Judge Kavanaugh’s reputation in pursuit of narrow political advantage. On balance, although Judge Kavanaugh and his family were the ones who had to pay the price for this bitter learning experience, all of us should be the long-term beneficiaries of this contest’s central but often hidden issues being brought to light and subjected to rational analysis. I want to show what I think these hidden issues are.

    What this sordid affair was all about was the zombie-like return-from-the-dead of a phenomenon exposed and pretty much completely invalidated more than thirty years ago, which never should have been permitted to raise its ugly head before an assembly of rational, educated Americans: the “Recovered Memory” (aka “False Memory”) Syndrome movement of the 1980s, in which numerous troubled, frequently mentally off-balance, women (and a few men) came forward to declare that they had been the victims of incestual sexual abuse – most often actual sexual intercourse – at the hands of mature male family members; usually fathers but sometimes uncles, grandfathers, or others.

    Their testimony was usually highly emotional and impassioned, leaving an impression very similar to that conveyed last night by Dr. Ford. Many hearers were completely convinced that these events had occurred. I recall having a discussion in the 1990s with two American women who swore up and down that they believed fully 25% of American women had been forced into sexual intercourse with their fathers. I was dumbfounded that they could believe such a thing. But, vast numbers of American women did believe this at that time, and many – perhaps most – may never have looked sufficiently into the follow-up to these testimonials to realize that the vast majority of such bizarre claims had subsequently been definitively proven invalid.

    The “Recovered” (or “False”) Memory Syndrome movement emerged in the midst of the steadily radicalizing Feminist Movement in the United States, probably at the very apogee of its extreme evolution, and was a movement in which Freudian therapy was central and Freudian therapists came to play the leading role. It was only after they had been subjected to extensive pseudo-scientific Freudian “therapy,” in which sex always lay prominently at the center, that virtually all of these women came forward with these stories. A major controversy, which arose within the ranks of the Freudians themselves over what was the correct understanding of the Master’s teachings, lay at the core of the whole affair. And, in this dispute the American ultra-Feminists chose to believe and preach the worst, most salacious, and most vicious possible interpretation of Dr. Freud’s highly speculative, evidence-less, and – as subsequent study has overwhelmingly shown – completely contrived diagnoses.

    It’s now known that Dr. Freud’s journey to the theoretical positions which had become orthodoxy among his followers by the mid-20th century had followed a strange, little known, possibly deliberately self-obscured, and clearly unorthodox course. Beginning with a conviction that cocaine could provide a substantial therapeutic base for solving psychological problems, Freud seems himself to have become for a period a regular consumer of that drug, but subsequently altered the focus of his therapy to hypnosis. After realizing certain limitations to this approach, he shifted again, turning to the so-called “Talking Cure” rooted in provoking word associations, which provided the basis for the classic Freudian method of popular imagination – with the patient reclining on a couch and the good Dr. seated behind with his notebook and pen in hand. This is the method he retained for the rest of his life.

    The primary fault which has been cited for Freud’s methods generally, but which has been particularly critiqued in both hypnosis and the “Talking Cure” as a reason for their invalidation, is the claim that both – at least inadvertently – incorporate the high probability of suggestion from the therapist. In this view, patient testimony moves subtly, and probably without the patient’s awareness, from whatever his or her own understanding might originally have been to the interpretation implicitly propounded by the analyst. Analysis thus follows a circular course, the analyst’s theoretical surmise being first subtly communicated to the patient, then confirmed by the patient’s casting of his (or, more often her) own ideas within the framework which had been suggested by the analyst. In the end, nothing new is actually discovered. The patient merely replicates the expressed Freudian doctrine.

    The particular doctrine at hand was undergoing a critical reworking at this very time, and this important reconsideration of the Master’s meaning almost certainly constituted a major, likely the predominating, factor which facilitated the emergence of the Recovered Memory Syndrome movement. Freudian orthodoxy at that time included as an important – seemingly its key – component the conviction of a child’s (even an infant’s) sexuality, as expressed through the hypothesized Oedipus Complex for males, and the corresponding Electra Complex for females. In these complexes, Freud speculated that sexually-based neuroses derived from the child’s (or infant’s) fear of imagined enmity and possible physical threat from the same-sex parent, because of the younger individual’s sexual longing for the opposite-sex parent.

    This Freudian idea, entirely new to European, American, and probably most other cultures, that children, even infants, were the possessors of an already well-developed sexuality had been severely challenged by Christian and some other traditional authorities, and had been met with repugnance from many individuals in Western society. But, the doctrine, as it then stood, was subject to a further major questioning in the mid-1980s from Freudian historical researcher Jeffrey Masson, who postulated, after examining a collection of Freud’s personal writings long kept from popular examination, that the Child Sexual Imagination thesis itself was a pusillanimous and ethically-unjustified retreat from an even more sinister thesis the Master had originally held, but which he had subsequently abandoned because of the controversy and damage to his own career its expression would likely cause. This was the belief, based on many of his earlier interviews of mostly women patients, that it wasn’t their imaginations which lay behind their neuroses. They had told him that they had actually been either raped or molested as infants or young girls by their fathers. This was the secret horror hidden away in those long-suppressed writings, now brought into the light of day by Prof. Masson.

    Masson’s research conclusions were initially widely welcomed within the psychoanalytical fraternity/sorority and shortly melded with the already raging desire of many ultra-Feminist extremists to place the blame for whatever problems and dissatisfactions women in America were encountering in their lives upon the patriarchal society by which they claimed to be oppressed. The problem was men. Countless fathers were raping their daughters. Wow! What an incentive to revolutionary Feminist insurrection! You couldn’t find a much better justification for their man-hate than that. Bring on the Feminist Revolution! Men are not only a menace, they are no longer even necessary for procreation, so let’s get rid of them entirely. This is the sort of extreme plan some radical Feminists advocated. Many psychoanalysts became their professional facilitators, providing the illusion of medical validation to the stories the analysts themselves had largely engendered. Those women patients, and a few men, became their victims, but in turn became the perpetrators in the savaging of numerous men’s lives, as these men were subjected to the most vicious accusations imaginable. Most of these accusations were, in retrospect, clearly fantasies in a ruthless mid-20th century male-witch hunt.

    This radical ideology is built upon the conviction that Dr. Freud, in at least this one of his several historical phases of interpretative psychological analysis, was really on to something. But, subsequent evaluation has largely shown that not to be the case. The same critique which had been delivered against the Child Sexual Imagination version of Freud’s “Talking Cure” analytical method was equally relevant to this newly discovered Father Molestation thesis: all such notions had been subtly communicated to the patient by the analyst in the course of the interview. Had thousands, hundreds of thousands, even millions of European and American women really been raped or molested by their fathers? Freud offered no corroborating evidence of any kind, and I think it’s the consensus of most competent contemporary psychoanalysts to reject this idea. Those few who retain a belief in it betray, I think, an ideological commitment to Radical Feminism, for whose proponents such a view offers an ever tempting platform to justify their monstrous plans for the future of a human race in which males are subjected to the status of slaves or are entirely eliminated.

    But, the judicious conclusions of science often – perhaps usually – fail to promptly percolate down to the comprehension of common humanity on the street, and within the consequent vacuum of understanding scheming politicians can frequently find opportunity to manipulate, obfuscate, and distort facts in order to facilitate their own devious and often highly destructive schemes. Such, I fear, is the situation which has surrounded Dr. Ford. The average American of either sex has absolutely no familiarity with the history, character, or ultimate fate of the Recovered Memory Syndrome movement, and may well fail to realize that the phenomenon has been nearly entirely disproved.

    Into this popular intellectual desert walks Dr. Ford, both whose personal history and her strange physical mannerisms in testimony before the Senate clearly indicate she has unfortunately suffered some form of serious psychological disturbance. Seemingly alienated from her own parents and most immediate family members, she has made her home as far away from the Washington, DC area where she was born as possible within the territorial limits of the continental United States. The focus of her professional research and practice in the field of psychology has lain in therapeutic treatment to overcome mental and emotional trauma, a problem she has acknowledged has been her own disturbing preoccupation for many decades. In 2012 she underwent some sort of psychological counseling with her husband, though the details as far as I know have not emerged. But, it hardly seems likely coincidental that her first documentable expressions of antipathy to Judge Kavanaugh occurred in that year, when it was announced that Judge Kavanaugh was considered the likely Supreme Court appointee should Mit Romney win the Presidential election. Her expressions of antipathy to him have only grown from there.

    Dr. Ford is clearly an unfortunate victim of something or someone, but I don’t believe it was Judge Kavanaugh. Almost certainly she has been influenced in her denunciations against him by both that long-term preoccupation with her own sense of psychological injury, whatever may have been its cause, and her professional familiarization with contemporary currents of psychological theory, however fallacious, likely mediated by the ministrations of that unnamed counselor in 2012. Subsequently, she has clearly been exploited mercilessly by the scheming Democratic Party officials who have viciously plotted to turn her plight to their own cynical advantage. As in so many cases during the 1980s Recovered Memory movement, she has almost certainly been transformed by both the scientifically unproven doctrines and the conscienceless practitioners of Freudian mysticism from being merely an innocent victim into an active victimizer – doubling, tripling, or even quadrupling the pain inherent in her own tragic situation and aggressively projecting it upon helpless others, in this case Judge Kavanaugh and his entire family. She is not a heroine.

    John Derbyshire – another shitty, adolescent article from the angry white conservative man child who blames everybody whose not white and male for his own failings and problems. The way you portray women in this article reveals a man child who never matured beyond 16 years of age. It is little wonder you portray women as nothing more than angry children’s book characters who vomit if they don’t get their way: a man child can’t see it any other way. Not once in this diatribe do you mention abortion rights. It never occurred to you that losing abortion rights might piss off some women. If Kavanaugh is put on the court, abortion will be made illegal in USA. Debryshire, you remind me Jeff Sessions: you’re a couple of bookends from the 1940s. Same racist mind set, same ‘war on drugs’ reactionary bullshit, same ‘women belong in the kitchen’ nonsense etc. What’s more, anybody who actually likes Lindsey Graham is a total complete asshole. There is nothing to like in that self-righteous reactionary, war criminal piece of shit from the Old South. If you’ve enjoyed the last 17 years of wars without end and the wretched ‘war on terror’ and all that has come to pass since 9-11, then Lindsey Graham is your man. Like McCain, he never saw a war he didn’t love starting. And watching Graham’s temper tantrum meltdown in the congressional hearings the other day made for rather uncomfortable viewing, like watching a 5 year old in a toy store who didn’t get his GI Joe doll. Since when is losing your temper, foaming at the mouth and screaming at the entire caucus because you are not getting your way acceptable behavior? It isn’t. But it is a sure sign of a person who is a total, complete egotistical asshole. I always hated Scalia, and was really happy when he died. That Obama and the dems were too spineless to stick a replacement on the bench when they had the chance only reinforced my total lack of respect for the dems. The tragedy in waiting was that now we will have a reactionary conservative majority scotus headed by Kavanaugh, and abortion will be made illegal; more laws passed to favor giant corporations like Citizens United; more anti-worker legislation passed; more war and more police state measures domestically: that’s your Trump/Kavanaugh/Lindsay Graham/John Derbyshire shit stain USA coming yer way!

    I think I’ve figured out why they had to go to couples counseling about an outside door and why she came up with claim that she needed an outside bedroom door because she’d been assaulted 37 years ago.

    The Palo Alto building codes for single family homes were created to make sure single family homes remained single family and weren’t chopped up into apartments.

    Outside doors enter public areas kitchen sunroom living rooms not bedrooms. An outside door into a master bedroom with attached bathroom is a red flag that it’s intended for an illegal what’s called in law apartment

    There’s a unit It’s a stove 2 ft counter space and sink. The stoves electric and plugs into an ordinary household electricity. It’s backed against the bathroom wall. Break through the wall, connect the pipes running water for the sink. Add an outside door and it’s a small apartment.

    Assume they didn’t want to make it an apartment just a master bedroom. Usually the contractor pulls the permits routinely. But an outside bedroom door is complicated. The permits will cost more. It might require an exemption and a hearing They night need a lawyer. And they might not get the permit.

    So she wants the door. Husband says waste of money and trouble. Contractor says call me when you’re ready.

    So they go to counseling Husband explains why the door’s unreasonable. Therapist asks wife why she “ really deep down” needs the door.

    Wife makes up the story about attempted rape 35 years ago flashbacks If only there were 2 doors in that imaginary bedroom she could have escaped.

    Kacanaugh was nominated. CIA searched for sex problems in his working life. Found nothing Searched law school and college found nothing. In desperation searched high school found nothing

    Searched CIA personnel records which go back to grade school and found one of their own employees was about Kavanaugh’s age and attended a high school near his and the students socialized.

    She’s 3rd generation CIA. grandfather assistant director. Father CIA contractor who
    managed CIA unofficial band accounts. And she runs a CIA recruitment office.

    I’m puzzled why CIA is so against Kavanaugh?

  17. He mixed some yin in with the yang, too, some feminine in with the masculine, choking up when he talked about his daughter praying for Dr Ford.

    If I am at all representative, Hutu men winced at that. We’d rather a man kept his composure in public. Hutu women, however, really go for that stuff. I doubt the Republican Party lost male Hutu votes on account of Judge Kavanaugh’s tears, but it picked up a few thousand on the distaff side.

    Things are, I think, a bit more complex. Great manly leaders (Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Churchill,..) were known to have publicly cried. Perhaps a part of it was just acting, but, historians seem to agree, in most cases it was genuine. They just got emotional, which is perfectly human & is not a sign of weakness or incapability of leadership.

    I know that Kavanaugh is a judge & not a politician, but these days the two roles are inseparable….

    Trump has tried to turn his presidency into a personality cult rather than MAGA. That is a mistake because Trump’s campaign positions were more popular than Trump and it doesn’t lift the entire party.

    Every Hillary voter I meet, male or female, buys every one of the stupid narratives being pushed and are fired up to vote. The Bernie voters don’t automatically buy every narrative but they despise Trump and want him out and Democrats to regain control.

    I agree with Derb that the hearing may make up some of the enthusiasm gap. A lot of conservative men had to have been looking at that hearing and thinking how easy it would be for them to get similar treatment at work or school.I imagine a good number of conservative women don’t want their husbands and sons to face similar inquisitions.

    Looking at that photo of the former primary contenders, reminded me of all the holier-than-though talk we got from the right-of-center, about how Trump was too gruff, and crass, about everything, including sexual topics, interactions with women, etc.

    What these hearings demonstrated, that we already knew, was that the Puritan-Jew alliance is obsessed with all things sexual, perverted, distasteful…theirs is a world of, as you point out, “preppy white boy” fantasies, where the bad guys look like the blond jock in Karate Kid, and drive around in their Dad’s 1982 Buick Regal or their own ’79 Camero, looking to “score” with virginal know-nothing, Red Riding Hoods, that happen to find themselves at ‘gang rape parties’ (?), out of nowhere. Who go on to have Leftist careers only to resurrect repressed memories 35 years later–projected in front of the world, by a 50-something year old woman ‘channeling’ at 13 year old girl, compete with the verbal fry and uptalk, as well as the feigned babe-in-the-woods confusion at “all these questions from the adults”.

    It’s a silly framework from which they obsess, but it’s similar to Kinsey, Mead and others of the Left. Sex. Projection, doubling-down, and an absence of due process to punish people for the very things that actually occupy their minds. Even in her advanced age, you could tell, Feinstein was enjoying the open air discussions regarding sexual topics.

    Let the Right / Never-Trumpers be on notice–Trump is light fare compared to where the Left will go and has been, regarding women, sex, and all things crass.

    Reading the commentary by Conservatism Inc and listening to the talking heads on Fox News is sickening. These Nancy boys must be controlled opposition, hiding capitulation behind empty gassing about dead issues like constitutionalism and procedural order prevailing in American politics. If anything, their disgraceful unmanliness emboldens the increasingly homicidal and racist left to do the things the left always does when it finally consolidates power, which is to go from character assassination to mass murder overnight.

    The hatred in the eyes of those homicidally vicious hags on the committee like Harris, the bottomless cruelty characteristic of rank cowards in the eyes of Booker, Blumenthal, and the rest, as well as the hatred from the msm make it clear that two-party democracy in America is dead. Instead of lining up local and state police and patriotic elements within the military and federal law enforcement in preparation for taking our country back, we’re supposed to believe yet more groveling appeasement by the likes of Grassly and Flake is our best defense. They’re not statesmen, rhey’re groveling assholes.

    That’s probably the only reason Graham was chosen to publicly throw a fit: he’s inside-the-Beltway safe. He can huff and puff and talk tough on this hearing, precisely because the Establishment knows he’ll never really go against them on issues like immigration or foreign policy.

The Constitution is supposed to create the structure of government, authorize payment of fat salaries to 527 elected entertainers and limit the scope of the personal financial activities while in office. I can’t image a confirmation hearing that would review the judicial history of the past rulings and professional activities of a candidate. The audience would not be interested to hear what those who practice law and interact with the candidate had to say about him and his legal abilities. When and in which tent are those hearings to begin?

    Where are the opinions by Judge Kavanaugh? Why have they not been produced for inspection in the hearings? What does this man think? Why did Trump select Judge Kavanaugh to be a supreme? At the moment it looks like the the hearings have been conducted to cover for the attacks by Israel on Russian Airplanes in Syria. I can think of no other reason for such a circus?

    She always takes everybody on some emotional ride right up to the point where she could be exposed but never with enough information so somebody could come out of the woodwork and prove she is a liar. We also have the infamous letter where we are repeately reminded she mailed it BEFORE Kavanaugh was picked. Of course, we only have Feinstein’s word for that since nonody saw it until after this crap started. The delay was used to puch up the story with new revelation about Mike Judge in a grocery store that shied away from her – again with no specific date so Judge could prove she is a liar. This all reeks of testimony gone over and coached by a team of lawyers.

    We also have all of our own recollections of high school insecurities and male-female interactions. What freshman or sophomore girl didn’t get all giddy at the thought of the older guys hitting on her so she could tell all her friends about her older boyfreind and possibility of going to the prom as a lower classman? All he had to do (assuming he wasn’t replusive physically and he was a bit of a jock) was make the usual play of pretending to be interested and he likely would have been at least getting to first base at the party. From her pictures she was no Pamela Anderson and would likely have been flattered. The idea that you rape someone without trying to get the milk handed to you on a silver platter is ridiculous.

    History Repeats Itself: The Salem Witch Trials alla 2018

    Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” exemplifies very well how the hysteria of girls can be so dangerous that innocent men can be made to suffer terrible if not fatal consequences.

    Three hundred years later, the modern version of Abigail Williams, Christine Ford, with no facts, no evidence, no corroborative support other than other hysterical girls, with one finger pointing to John Proctor’s modern portrayal played by a hapless Brett Kavanaugh, is found at the whim of a delusional embittered girl.

    Like Abigail Williams, Christine Ford, with self loathing and hatred for any man, has found cold support from self-serving political leaders whom have nothing other than their own personal grandiose agendas for public glorification and self apotheosis. Like Reverend Samuel Paris, the wicked Feinstein and hypocritical sycophants like Booker, with their sanctimonious disregard for the rule of law and procedure of fact finding and procedural evidence, just as during Salem’s hysteria cast supreme judgement on hollow words of a clearly embittered, delusional rantings of a wobabies (i.e. woman babies) whom can’t even remember where, when, and what actually was done to them and to herself, Christine Ford. But like Abigail Williams, she is sure it was John Proctor, excuse me… I mean Brett Kavanaugh.

    In fact, the only allegation we hear is of “witch”“he sexually abused me”. Ah if Abigail was so fortunate, as no doubt Abigail would find Ford to have been, maybe there would have been no Salem Witch Trials, and John Proctor would have lived. Like wise, maybe the truth here is that Ford whom admits to not being raped, is really embittered just for that!

    But how can we know? Especially when, after 35 or more years of Ford’s meteoritic incapacity to remember even where the house this occurred in, when this “sexual thing” happened. Abigail Williams would have done so much better today!

    It has been over three hundred years since those unfaithful days of Salem, and here we find ourselves again, having to face the same vacuous allegations of embittered girls whom don’t remember anything but that evil that was done by John Proctor and Brett Kavanaugh.

    I think it is time for a new and updated version of The Crucible. With Christine Ford now playing Abigail Williams, and a devastated Kavanaugh the new Proctor. As for Reverend Paris, Senator Feinstein will do that role with great aplomb.

    Three hundred years, and the United States of America is once again en-ravaged by the rantings of embittered girls that have been unable to grow up and deal with their own emotional short-comings. No wonder Ford is a psychologist, she’s certifiably nuts!

    Ah, ah, the main issue here is not where Kavanaugh will stand on abortion laws but whether the campaign of slander against him could have any possible truth. The way I see it, a woman over 50 years old goes on the stand, tries to put on the helpless cute little girl act complete with a six-year old’s lisp, and pretends to have traumatic memories of something she claims happened over 35 years ago. Well, where on earth was she all these years? She ended up with a Ph.D. in psychology so she could not have been ignorant of laws and remedies surrounding rape and attempted rape through her years in university. Where was her “great courage” all these years? A tad too much of a coincidence this, her finding her memories and courage right on the eve of Kavanaugh’s proposed appointment. Kavanaugh may or may not be a good choice for the Supreme Court; opinions can differ legitimately. But putting him on a show-trial where he comes out looking unclean no matter what is a travesty of natural justice and a grave injury to common decency and common sense.

    Maybe somebody will explain to me why Flake needed Kavanaugh’s scalp.

    Two reasons:

    (1) A nice f-u to Trump. This is inconsistent with the principles of any conservative for whom the Supreme Court is a paramount issue regardless of any personal feelings about the nominator or nominee, but of course that apparent contradiction answers itself.

    (2) Tried-and-true grandstanding to obtain the admiration of the MSM and left. Of course this never works for very long, but Republicans keep trying. Flake has to prepare for his post-Congress career, possibly another run for office as an independent, or at least various sinecures that are available only to those in polite society. Maybe his “best friend” Sen. Coons even offered him something tangible in this regard.

    @schrub

    Regarding Nicephorus and Reality!:

    As Nicephorus pointed out during the 80/90s there was quite an uproar about these women (and even some men!) regarding these false memories. In fact, it is now known as False Memory Syndrome (FMS). Note to Nicephorus there is nothing Recurring about it, once these women have been forced to deal with the facts, magically their ailments tend to disappear!

    Referring to Wikipedia (I know, doing so, is about as bad as believing Ford), FSM is stated as “False memory syndrome is a condition in which a person’s identity and interpersonal relationships center on a memory of a traumatic experience that is objectively false but that the person strongly believes occurred.” Nota bene: traumatic experiences that are “objectively false”, that means there is nothing recurring about them, when they are false to begin with, ergo, they are made up, created, imagined. That means, the person suffering form FMS is suffering from a psychosomatic disorder; meaning the person is clearly incapable self-identifying with her psychosis and finds it easier to create falsehoods so as not face her inabilities to deal with life. This is something that everyone has to deal with when they are children. Most people grow up and learn to deal with life’s travails, but we now see more and more people not being brought up well enough to deal with life.

    This period during the 80/90s was not helped by the preposterous psycho-analyst community with their over the top evaluations and clinical assessments of the would be suffers of sexual abuse. The outrageous claims and false accusations that were made, not by just a host of women, but their so called professional and experts reached the same levels of sanctimoniousness as we see today with Kavanaugh.

    And what happened in the end? These women including their doctors, some of them world experts in psychoanalysis were made out to be a bunch of loonie toons or out right crooks! It was all a bunch of hog-wash. Many men were sent to ruin with these outrageous claims by experts supporting their truly delusional and psychotically (note I wrote psychotically not psychologically!) ailing women.

    Nicephorus would like to play apologist by using greater than required sophisticated causes for this horrible period in psychiatry. When in fact, there are plenty of simpler reasons to explain what was happening then and now, and they don’t need a Ph.D in psychiatry or psycho-analysis which is by the way founded and grounded in NON science, it is all conjecture and opinion. I prefer the facts and evidence, like in a court of law. Let me continue…

    This whole episode of Ford and the delusion of these 80/90s women – as they were truly many times, shown to be mischievously delusional, as PROVEN BY MANY court cases of the time, with I might add, many of these so called experts supporting their skulduggerish female patients and ending up by going to prison- can be explained that these women were just disgruntled and bitter of their lives and they just found it easier to believe that they were just victims of crimes perpetrated upon themselves than to deal with the reality that the rest of us have to deal with every single day of our lives, that life can truly suck!

    Yep that’s right folks. People can lie, cheat and throw a tantrum all because they are unhappy with their lives. Why are they unhappy? Well blame the failing way parents are bring up their children today. Take a look at how so many young people today are so indignant and self-righteous about themselves. The problem here is not about “rape” or “sexual harassment” perpetrated by men. Yes these things happen, but not to the level that the would be wobabies (woman babies) would like society to believe. The problem is quite simple, like Abigail Williams in Salem during the end the 17th century, she threw fit that she didn’t get what she wanted and so doubled/quadrupled down on alleging witchery on John Proctor.

    This entire Kavanaugh saga is just about cry babies who can’t deal with life, and they need to blame everyone else for their own lack of self-awareness and inability to live life the way Life has bestowed upon them.

    There is no crime here. Ford is either psychotic or being paid by someone (as it has been mentioned that her family is CIA) or that she bares a grudge against Kavanaugh. I understand that Kavanaugh’s mother, who was a judge too, actually presided over the bitter divorce of Ford’s parents and there may well be some pay back going on here. Yes that’s right, Ford is acting out of revenge.

    So Schrub I would be very circumspect about reading things like Nicephorus wrote, they are obviously written with a certain apologistic and professional slant. When you look at the facts, like they did in the 80/90s and look more closely to Ford’s background, you will find more reasonable and clearly more fundamental and natural reasons for this entire débâcle.

    Just watch, when Kavanaugh is appointed, and he will be, the Democrats will drop Ford like a hot potato. It will be Ford who?

    Brett Kavanaugh is just John Proctor of 2018. The only injustice that is occurring right now, is that these hysterical failing women are looking for attention, when in reality they deserve a spanking!

    Thank you Iberiano for pointing out that story.

    Just a few words on the inference your comment.

    We are today entering a very precarious time. Where women, all because they are W O M E N, they can make any allegation about a man it must be taken seriously. Seriously and with WITHOUT CONSEQUENCE.

    Iberiano, you seem to be a reasonable person. So I will spare you what will I fear what will happen next. For anyone with common sense can see that.

    But what will society be like 50 years from now? I posit:

    - Man and women will now have to be chaperoned when they are together when they meet (hmm…I do believe Islam has that covered).

    - Man and women will not be allowed to be in the same room together (for you never know what could happen, right!) (Hmm… I do believe that Islam has that covered too!)

    - Men will no longer be able to look lustfully at a women, that could be construed as assault! (Hmmm…women will have to dress less provocatively – wow – Islam has that covered too…it appears there is a trend here!

    You can see where I am going with this, can’t you Iberiano?

    The West (America at this point, mainly) is heading towards back to Puritanism again. I think the Amish see a renaissance coming.

    This renewed Salem Psychosis that is now reoccurring can really sow the seeds of destruction. Men will think twice, thrice and more, before they ask a woman out, or even their hand in marriage.

    If Ford is the embodiment of what women supposedly see as noble, God help us men!

    The Northeastern US was Anglo in nature/culture, while the Tidewater and Coastal areas of NC and SC were Saxon, and/or Saxon-Celt, sometimes mixed with the long-suffering Huguenots (particularly eastern VA outside of the Tidewater, and again in Charleston, SC)–the latter ethnics being much less given to extremism in religion and social mores.

    Saxons were also more warlike and feudal, and while their close neighbors (Scots-Irish) were much more individualist (natural libertarians), they were less likely to accept an Anglo framework to their culture-especially given the history back on the Island(s). The Nordics are much more like the Anglos, at least as expressed in the US culture as the overlay (see Wisconsin, Minn, etc). Meanwhile, the Latin French and Spanish of Louisiana/Tx and Coast Miss/Alabama, were too busy race mixing and drinking to care.

    Well, I’ll have to admit I haven’t been following the controversy very closely, but I have a couple of questions for those who have…

    First off, that if the incident did occur, the precise details of what did or did not happen may have easily gotten garbled in memory during the preceding 35+ years, especially considering that all the participants were totally drunken teenagers at the time.

    However, that being said, I tend to find the Ford woman’s general account much more credible. After all, if we take into account the factor of drunken teenage recollections getting exaggerated during 35 years, what she’s describing probably happened at lots and lots of drunken teenage parties at the time. It’s not like she’s claiming that Kavanaugh actually raped or beat her.

    Second, although polygraphs aren’t totally reliable, my impression is that they’re much better than nothing, and supposedly she passed hers. I’d be very, very interesting in the results of a similar polygraph test of Kavanaugh or his friend Mike Judge, asking them about whether the “general” incident happened, without focusing on the precise details.

    Let’s look at a few “witch hunts” of the late last century, where both men’s and women’s lives were destroyed.
    The infamous California “McMartin School scandal” where young children were “coached” into making declarations of abuse utilizing the failed and false concept of “recovered memory syndrome”. In fact, all of the allegations were false, but the therapists and officials still declared that “children don’t lie”, despite proof that the children were rewarded for saying what the therapists wanted to hear. These children were badgered when under questioning, and then rewarded when their answers matched the false suppositions of the therapists. The claims of the children were so preposterous as well as the claims that the times and dates where these actions took place were impossible, A number of innocent people did “hard time” for that one.
    The Wenatchee Washington day-care scandal was another example of judicial malpractice. A vindictive detective took it upon himself to find “proof” of abuse, using the same techniques as was done in the McMartin case. A number of innocent individuals also endured imprisonment as a result.
    In both cases, there was not enough time in the day for abuse to have taken place, no individual private time with the children, as well as the impossibility of the grotesque situations that were “coached” by these “professionals”.
    In both cases, children were taken from their parents and put into foster care, at the behest of these witch-hunting professionals.
    We are witnessing the same witch hunting today…only against men…

    The Polygraph, to the extent it means anything, can only test if she believes it happened, And it was administered as paid for by her Lawyers.

    As far as drinking, it is a tactic to increase FUD. If he ever drank to the extent his memory was ever hazy, he ‘could’ve done anything and not remember it.

    Finally, she volunteered herself. Its not like she was was identified as someone that was in Kavanaugh’s circle. She may never have met him.

    Finally, why was it so traumatic? Because he laughed? It is not unlikely that someone that fought off a drunken groping would actually felt empowered.

    Rape is now a social construct entirely defined by women. Its their right to enjoy BSDM like that promoted in 50 Shades of Gray but more extreme. Yet it is weaponized. Its like being a commie or homo in the 1950s. Now 1950s commies and homos are celebrated. Traditional definitions of rape were stranger rape and it was a potential capital crime. Its been conflated to include what would have been considered bad manners.

    When the allegations were made, Kavanaugh knew whether they were true or not. If they were not true, there would be no need to panic. He would simply deny and ask for an investigation. But he did not do this. Instead he panicked. He raged. He pleaded. In a word he made a fool of himself. The worst of all was his Fox News interview. Since when does a judge volunteer for a TV journalistic court, as if this were a court that was going to exonerate him? For a judge this was most peculiar. The next day, when the accuser actually got her day in the hearings room, he does not even listen to her. He has to prepare his presentation – ie do his homework as he always diligently did throughout his life. Sorry to disagree with virtually all comments here but Kavanaugh self-destructed by his totally inappropriate wildly incoherently emotional reaction. No one wants to call him a liar, but he sure looked like one. So let’s just say he does not have the temperament for the job. End of story.

    Sorry Ron the only people who believe polygraphs work is the industry trying to sell them. Gary Ridgway, the Green River Killer passed them. So did Aldrich Ames our own Russian Mole spy. If a person believes something then her vitals like Ford may be in a certain range not to make the examiner find anything out of the ordinary. The polygraph theoretically measures the autonomic system response. Any nervousness, stress, blood pressure etc. can change whether the person is telling the truth or not.. I believe there have been people that have passed the test that claim they were abducted by Aliens and UFOs.

    Ford’s memories have little validity because these therapies often produce false memories and fill in the blank episodes. The Repubs should have asked her if she was on any drug or had taken drugs in the past. How much does she still drink because all of these could influence memories. Instead they became a door mat for the sick Me Too movement. Her memories could also be a form of release for guilt of her drugged laden sexual past which now lets her not blame herself. It was all of those drunken white guys who did it…not me…I am not responsible. Now I feel better.

    From my own point of view, she-said, he-said unsubstantiated stuff from people now in their 50′s, talking about stuff that happened in their mid to late teens, is just plain bonkers. Totalitarian states demand that the accused prove their innocence – I was under the impression that Western jurisprudence found you innocent until proven guilty. So is a mere allegation now considered proof?

    Not a road we’d want to go down, surely. And there’s probably good reasons why polygraph tests aren’t accepted in law courts, as a circa 80% reliability just isn’t good enough.

    Her polygraph exam was a joke. She and her lawyer drafted a vague, one-page statement that does not say “Brett Kavanaugh tried to rape me.”

    The test-giver then asked her exactly one question, in two different ways: (1) Is your statement true? and (2) Did you make it up?

    The theory of polygraph is that confronting a liar and making him speak a specific lie will cause a nervous response whose physical manifestations are detectable.

    Deliberately letting her off the hook from having to speak (or even listen to) the lies she is being asked to affirm seems like a transparent way to avoid triggering her galvanic skin response or other physical indicia of dishonesty.

    In my mind, the fakey nature of the polygraph exam counts against her credibility and not for it.

    P.S. It’s also entirely possible that she failed a prior (more rigorous) exam, and they just threw it away and tried again. Because it is attorney work product they wouldn’t have had to disclose that.

    P.P.S. I wish I knew how to grab and paste a link from my phone, but a copy of her polygraph report with the written statements and examination questions is easily findable online if anyone wants to see it.

    I am pro-choice and anti-gun, Kavanaugh is not at all my ideal judge. But truth and fairness is much more important than my personal views on social issues.

    I watched the trial with an open mind, and I came away thinking that the whole thing was a farce, an embarrassment not just to Ford and Kavanaugh, but to all of Congress and the entire country. This is a hearing that never should’ve been in public, it should’ve been in private between the two parties, but Democrats clearly manipulated the situation and wanted to use it to destroy an innocent man whose only crime is harboring certain political views that they disagree with. It is pure evil.

    Ford probably had been groped or worse treated in her youth, partly thanks to her own hard partying lifestyle(according to her yearbook she was a popular cheerleader with a reputation for hard partying and chasing boys), but she’s got the wrong man in Kavanaugh, and her accusations are at least partially politically motivated. All 3 people she named as witnesses, incl. her best friend, swore under oath that such a party never even took place. What she has is a bullshit case.

    As Graham and Ted Cruz, both lawyers, pointed out, people who commit such acts tend to have a trail of such activities, but after 6 FBI background checks, Kavanaugh came out squeaky clean. The man of God swore to God and the whole country that he did not do any of these things, that to me is good enough to attest to his innocence.

    The Democrats should be ashamed of themselves for such foul play, they are an embarrassment to the whole country. Honor and integrity no longer matters to the left. They have lost all sense of decency in their quest to hold on to power. The end justifies the means. Flake the idiot needs to go ESAD.

    You need to stop being so sanctimoniously humorless. Really, now, stop barking like a junk yard dog. Take a few deep breaths and let your intense rage subside. Think, instead, in terms of opportunity. Recriminalization of unnatural pregnancy termination will motivate women to demand that men bear more of the burden of pregnancy prevention. Don’t you want men to accomodate them??

    Women will resent more than ever the expense, inconvenience, and risks of female birth control drugs, but most men, esp. those in their teens and 20′s will steadfastly refuse to procure a vasectomy. And everyone hates condoms, which are not entirely reliable.

    So, what is the alternative for sharing the responsibility to become artificially sterile during the years of greatest fertility and health? And what products might the pharmaceutical industrial complex be more willing to develop and offer to men in an improved investment environment for selling birth control drugs? Men will remain eager to get laid without impregnating their serially monogamous slut of the moment. How could you oppose something like birth control pills for men? Aren’t you sex positive??

    Nevermind the financial and political benefits which could accrue to the world’s most Chosen tribe. Or to Democrats who understand what’s going on thanks to casual remarks about this or that company, drug, etc. at dinner parties. Those would be only coincidences. Focus, instead, on the benefits to women in a world where men are more motivated to procure and use birth control drugs and where pharmaceutical companies enjoy a significantly reduced risk of their investment in male birth control drugs being unprofitable.

    Surely the new environment would mean also more downward pressure on fertility among white Caucasians, esp. the book smart who, in the past, were married earlier and had larger families. Don’t you want to reduce the reproduction rate of white Caucasians? Don’t you want to undermine “white privilege”?

    Think about all the scientists and technicians who will be needed to develop new birth control drugs and devices for men. A disproportionate number of them will be People of Color.

    Well, here’s my impression of a possible “bare-bones” version of the incident…

    At an unsupervised suburban pool party, a couple of drunken teenage football players pulled a girl into a bedroom, pawed at her a little while they were laughing, then let her run away. Since they knew they hadn’t had the slightest intent of gang-raping her, they didn’t regard what happened as being a big deal. However, it’s quite possible that the 15-year-old girl had actually been pretty scared, and she long remembered it.

    Doesn’t she claim she mentioned it to people years before Kavanaugh was nominated for the SC? Didn’t Mike Judge write a whole book about how he had spent years in crude drunken misbehavior? Isn’t he currently hiding so that he can’t be called as a sworn witness?

    Also, isn’t Kavanaugh now claiming he remained a virgin all through HS and college or something like that? Given that he and his friend Judge were drunken jocks and his yearbook was filled with all sorts of crude sexual humor, is that really plausible?

    I suspect that administering official polygraphs to Ford, Kavanaugh, and Judge would soon clear up the facts. We’re not talking about trained spies or anything. And three polygraphs would probably increase the likelihood of a solid result.

    Since I haven’t watched the hearings or paid much attention to the story, maybe some of the above material is just erroneous. But offhand, I think it’s more plausible than claiming this is all part of a CIA plot.

    Interesting that both Thomas and Kavanaugh are Catholics. And Metzenbaun and Feinstein are jews.

    I wonder why the letter wasn’t sent to Kamela Harris former district attorney who actually prosecuted rape cases but only after she determined she and the detectives had solid evidence to file charges

    Like every DA who ever prosecuted a rape case she would have interviewed the victim more than once before the trial. Like every DA and detective she developed an instinct about who’s lying and who’s telling the truth.

    Because of the insane liberalism of the jurors of San Francisco the SF DAs have to work harder and do better than normal to get a conviction.

    And she had a good win record too.

    So why Feinstein?

    I’d be very, very interesting in the results of a similar polygraph test of Kavanaugh or his friend Mike Judge

    Of course you’re interested in that. Polygraphs are useful tools of an amusing fishing expedition, and it’s clearly impossible for an asymmetry to arise in the form of different standards of rigor for the questions asked to accuser, accused, and friends of the accused. What’s not to like about the idea?

    Let’s just ignore that subjecting Kavanaugh and Judge to polygraph tests would have the nice effect also of being another step toward normalizing the sort of jurisprudence which prevails in any energetic despotism with other predictable features like widespread price fixing, ostensibly to control inflation and to help needy laborers. Anyhow, the accused shall be obliged not only to speak in their own defense but to have their vital signs recorded while under the duress of an interrogation by radically hostile sympathizers of the accuser. We will a few have more blowjobs in our future if we support this reform.

    Furthermore, no accused person, in what appears to be your ideal world, has a right to confront his accuser and to cross examine that person at length. Interrogation of the accused and vital sign recording first! If the accuser does speak at a trial, he or she ought to do so only after the accused has been cross examined aggressively and in such a way that all possible innuendo has been mined and processed to help the prosecutors to develop a complete theory of guilt.

    Accusers must be believed automatically, or at least thought credible, esp. if they tick the right boxes of a personal profile. Vagueness of accusation must be no barrier to conviction, and the accuser needn’t be limited to objective offenses. If accuser says that she felt or believed that she could be beaten or murdered, then it must be true that the accused had that in mind.

    And why not, under your new system, let the accuser enjoy the benefit of never facing a statute of limitations? In fact, why impair her freedom to pick and choose the forum for the trial? If the standard of evidence in a regional court system, i.e. in the court system of original jurisdiction, is rigorous, it’s no problem! The accuser will be allowed to put the accusation into her pocket indefinitely until there’s an opportune moment to deploy it elsewhere, e.g. in an ad hoc kangaroo court established at a time of great contention by the jostling politicians in the highest legislature of the land. Only prudes and reactionary, old fuddy duddies who don’t want more blow jobs worry about the consequences of forum shopping and merging a legislature with the courts as suits some whim of the moment.

    We don’t even need a fixed, predetermined procedure to which both accuser and accused will be required to conform. All of it can be made up on the fly, like the tactics of a team of assassins operating behind enemy lines. If a favorite trick is not tolerated, no problem. The open-ended and entirely free form nature of the show trial will provide other opportunities to insinuate a substitute trick into the procedure.

    I don’t understand, however, why you stopped at

    what she’s describing probably happened at lots and lots of drunken teenage parties at the time.

    If you’re correct, probably many many women were assaulted. Or probably many, many men have committed such assaults. Or both. It’s clear also, oh yes, that no fewer than 1/3 of all females have been frequent victims of no fewer than 2/3 of all males. Now we can see that the merits of Blasey Ford’s case are so strong that it would be an abomination of justice not to indulge the idle curiosity of everyone who takes an interest, no matter how fleeting, in the events. We must not be afraid to turn the case into a hugely entertaining show during which a person subjected to partisan hostility is held up for public contempt and opprobrium during a live Two Minutes’ Hate session that is extended willy-nilly if it serves the Party’s interests.

    I’ve posted this before about “Dora” the patient on whom Dr Fraud created his entire theory of female frigidity.

    Worst thing about that theory is that once the Woody Allenish intellectuals learned of it they used it to try to talk women into bed.

    So, in addition to what were called unwanted attentions in those days 3 generations of women had to put up with some ugly nerd trying to talk them into bed by claiming sex with the creep would be good for their mental health.

    Dora A. was the 14 year old daughter of Herr and Frau A. Herr A was the business partner of Herr B and long time lover of Frau B

    Here B began to suspect. A divorce would be disaster. The business would break up and if Frau B were divorced for adultery no alimony and disgrace

    So Herr A and Frau B decided to throw Dora Herr B’s way. Here B would have a sex object and he could be blackmailed to keep the partnership and forget about divorce.

    Dora however, refused to go along with this. She even slapped Herr B once.

    Herr A decided to send Dora to Dr Fraud to be convinced to submit to Herr B according to plan.

    Dora saw Dr Fraud 4 times under protest. At least once she stormed out of his house.
    That’s the theory. Humans are like animals in mating season. Attraction has nothing to do with it. And if you’re 14 and not attracted to some middle aged creep there something wrong with you.

    That’s Dr Fraud

    To me the relevant part of this essay is the discussion of the fact that it was Freud who suppressed the truth and distorted his patients’ accounts.
    As Jeffry Masson figured out with his research, the female patients’ stories were actually true. In 19thC Vienna, Freud’s patients had nothing to gain by making up such stories, and many of them were young girls who were sexually innocent until molested by Dad or Uncle. Anyone who thinks such molestation does not occur is a naif.
    The huge crime that Freud committed was to transform these revelations into “imagination.”

    The issue of “recovered memory” is a separate issue from that of how Freud used, and misused, the information that women and girls revealed to him in his consultation room.

    Freud’s discussion of the unconscious opened up a can of worms. Of course the unconscious exists. But since it is . . . unconscious . . . all kinds of allegations can be made that exploit the concept and invent not only ways for unconscious material to become conscious, but also of course that invent the unconscious material, or that insert conscious material into the unconscious. Advertisers and propagandists use the latter techniques all the time. The human mind is very suggestible; this has been proven through myriad experiments.

    There are also honest memory mistakes. Recently I was shown an illustration of a gear shift bushing that is needed for my car. The next day, I was quite sure I had been shown the bushing itself (granted, a modern technical illustration can be very realistic!).

    Thus, I think one must be pretty darned careful when segueing from a discussion of how Freud (mis)used the (true) revelations that were confided to him, and the concept of “recovered memory.” What Freud did was essentially to *bury* actual memories by labeling them as imagined. That was a terrible ethical deviation.

    Very different thing from “inserting” material into a person’s unconscious, then accessing it via suggestion (while knowing beforehand that it is there because one hid it there) and calling it a “recovered memory.”

    At an unsupervised suburban pool party, a couple of drunken teenage football players pulled a girl into a bedroom, pawed at her a little while they were laughing, then let her run away. Since they knew they hadn’t had the slightest intent of gang-raping her, they didn’t regard what happened as being a big deal. However, it’s quite possible that the 15-year-old girl had actually been pretty scared, and she long remembered it.

    It bothers me that everyone seems to assume that the actual events were so monstrous just because Ford now claims they were. Your scenario describes one not-so-monstrous possibility of what could have happened very well.

    Let me add another twist. Maybe some guys were drunkenly goofing around with her and maybe she got a little freaked out. Over the years, with the relentless promotion of concepts like toxic masculinity and the glorification of victimization, this little freak out evolved into a major traumatic experience.

    Now, being a good leftist, Ford finds the views of Kavanaugh loathsome. And over the years she has to watch him rise and rise in this world even though he holds such loathsome views. Maybe she’s thinking: Wasn’t he at that party? The one where I was sexually molested! I ‘m not sure who molested me — attempted to rape me really — but wouldn’t it be just like him to do something like that. Something so loathsome. It could have been him. The years pass. Kavanaugh rises higher. I think it was him. More years pass. Kavanaugh is at the summit. It was him.

    Or maybe Ford is just a lying sack of sh*t looking for attention and a nice payout. Who knows?

    Also, isn’t Kavanaugh now claiming he remained a virgin all through HS and college or something like that? Given that he and his friend Judge were drunken jocks and his yearbook was filled with all sorts of crude sexual humor, is that really plausible?

    Yes, it is. First of all, drunken jock is not a fair description of who Kavanaugh was and, second of all, teenage boys often exaggerate their “worldliness”.

    Did she lie? Of course she did. Can probable cause be presented with which to arrest or indict her? No! It’s somewhat like O J Simpson: Did he kill his wife? Of course he did. Is he guilty of murder? No! A jury found him innocent of murder and the judgement of a properly formed jury is absolute.

And if we think he lied but couldn’t possibly prove a perjury case against him do we knock him back because he chose to lie rather than say “that’s not at all how I remember things but I’m sure I did things as a 17 year old with a few beers inside me that I should be ashamed of and, if I ever treated Ms. Ford in such a loutish way as to give her lasting memories of my boorishness I am profoundly sorry and apologise with all my heart”?

    We are supposed to be a society based upon the RULE OF LAW. An entire justice system has been designed around this, going back to English courts before America was even discovered. Polygraphs are not considered valid evidence because they are not 100% reliable. Even if it’s only a 1% chance of being wrong (and I believe it’s far higher), you cannot hang a man based on it.

    That’s why under the rule of law, an actual chain of evidence is required and “he said / she said” is not good enough to convict anyone of anything. And so far no actual evidence has been produced that links Ford and Kavanaugh in any way. Nothing yet has corroborated that these two people were ever in the same room at any point in their entire lives. Circumstantial evidence can sometimes be good enough to convict someone, but even that is completely absent here. All we have so far is “he said / she said.”

    If Kavanaugh is put on the court, abortion will be made illegal in USA.

    This remark reflects a serious misunderstanding of the powers of the Supreme Court. If Kavanaugh is confirmed, there is a possibility that a case involving abortion may come before the Court. In that event, there is a possibility that the Court might overturn Roe v. Wade.

    Even if that were to happen, the consequence would not be to make abortion illegal in the U.S. Rather, it would return jurisdiction over abortion to the legislatures of the several states, with which it lay prior to Roe.

    It is highly unlikely that the legislatures of all fifty states would immediately outlaw abortion in the event Roe were overturned. This might be both the hope of abortion opponents and the fear of abortion proponents, but such expectations would soon be damped as the legislative process dragged on. Different states would come to different conclusions. If (for example) heavily Mormon Utah decided to outlaw abortion completely, neighboring Nevada, long open to quickie divorces, gambling hells, and brothels, might prove just as open to mobile abortuaries. No woman would ever be separated from an abortionist by more than the price of a bus ticket.

    The abortion issue has been the albatross around the neck of American politics ever since Roe v. Wade precisely because the legislative process was short-circuited. This vexatious issue could finally be laid to rest simply by allowing the legislative process to take its course.

    They have lost all sense of decency in their quest to hold on to power. The end justifies the means.

    Obviously.

    Now, the only interesting question really is: will an average voter in USA see it that way?

    There is some awareness with the “average voter” of what is going on.

    The proof is the election of Trump (or rather the election of his platform) despite intense Jewish/MSM opposition. And the attack on Kavanaugh is part of the same package and will probably be seen the same way.

    The landscape of Jewish power/activism in the United States is obviously a racial one, aimed at capturing key positions in the power structure for themselves (or their blackmailed Gentile collaborators). Key positions of power such as the Presidency or chairman of the Federal Reserve or Supreme Court judges are critical strategic positions to be captured in the ongoing anti-Anglo war*.

    It’s an expression of the basic fact that a racial block comprising 2% of the US population cannot democratically defend its already excessive power. It either has to subvert the existing process (with political blackmail factories like Epstein’s island or Pizzagate ) or grab absolute power (e.g. Russia October 1917 and the Bolshevik coup).

    For example, the treatment of Jewish Supreme Court candidate Garland, was in stark contrast to Kavanaugh’s, with Garland receiving the most fawning treatment from the same MSM.

    If the “average voter” sees some of this – which they seem to do, then Kavanaugh is just part of the ongoing process of polarization in the United States – with Jewish anti-Anglo activism (the metaphorical battery charger ) increasing the polarization of US society to the point of full charge. At full charge, the battery doesn’t have to be used, but the potential is there for a fast release of energy (likely a Neo-Bolshevik coup aimed at establishing a dictatorship + an unpredictable civil war).

    In an ideal world, US Jewish activists would emigrate Israel (they have automatic citizenship), where they can be part of the ethnic majority, and agitate all they like with their fellow Likudniks for an exclusive Jewish state with apartheid and ethnic cleansing for lesser races.

    …………..The Gang Rape of America By The Ritual Defamation Of Brett Kavanaugh

    But the power of ritual defamation “lies entirely in its capacity to intimidate and terrorize.” Wilcox writes “it is not used to persuade, but to punish,” as well as to avoid the conversations and debates that a free society needs if it is to survive. So if we want to remain free, we must all learn to recognize the patterns of ritual defamation and summarily reject them.

    Wilcox also offers this final analysis: “The weakness of ritual defamation lies in its tendency toward overkill and in its obvious maliciousness. Occasionally a ritual defamation will fail because of poor planning and failure to correctly judge the vulnerability of the victim or because its viciousness inadvertently generates sympathy.”

I had no marks on my body or clothing, suggesting that I had been involved in any altercation or engaged in anything involving dirt. Like Dr. Ford, I could remember no specifics of where I “killed” the man, or where the stand of trees might be. For weeks I was terrified, expecting the police to be knocking at my door to collect me. There were no news reports of any missing person, or body being found, yet I remained terrified at being found out. Gradually, I realized that even if I went to police, I couldn’t say who, when, and where the events took place, or even what the man looked like. It took me literally months to realize that the events could not have occurred. Unlike Dr.Ford. however, I learned not to get shitfaced while attending parties.

For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee.

    http://pdf.iwv.org/09.30.18%20Mitchell%20Memo.pdf

    Rachell Mitchell’s letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee says Dr. Catherine Blasey Ford’s testimony is insufficient to support her allegations. She states the woman’s testimony is likely tainted by her attorneys.

    If you think one catholic on the supreme court can just ‘ban” abortion you are totally absolutely ignorant of what a court does.

    A plaintiff would have to come up with some reasonable cause of action to file a lawsuit.

    The lawsuit would be filed against maybe a state, maybe the federal government. who knows

    The lawsuit would got to the lower state court in which it was filed or a low level federal court

    The lawsuit would go through several layers of federal courts

    The law suit would be sent to the supreme court

    The supreme court justices would decide whether or not to accept the case

    If and only if the 9 justices of the court decided to accept and hear the case would it be heard.

    If, by some miracle the court ruled to make abortion illegal again here’s what would happen and everyone familiar with the American legal system knows it.

    In these big cases where lawsuits are designed to change the laws, each side prepares in advance an appeal and injunction. Injunction is where a court orders something to not happen, in these cases, the new court decision not happen until there is an appeal.

    So if, and only if the court ruled to overturn Roe vs Wade, the losers would be at the federal courthouse filing to ask for an injunction to prevent the new ruling to take effect. Actually, these days it’s not necessary for a human to bring papers to a courthouse to file a lawsuit, response appeal or injunction. Fill out the forms on your computer, click the electronic file button, and viola!! its filed. So now both plaintiff and respondent lawyers s have the appeal and injunction all filled out and they can file it as soon as the decision is announced.

    It happens a lot. For instance there was a referendum in the state of California making gay marriage illegal in 2008 I think. The day after the election the opposition was waiting for the courthouse to open. They filed an injunction against the law making gay marriage in California illegal. The injunction filing was heard and injunction ordered by a pro gay marriage judge 3 days later.

    Learn a bit about how the American Judicial system works before making such a moronic state ment that kavanaugh could somehow out law abortion all by himself.

    If you think that one reactionary catholic could just issue some order like Henry 8 to behead his wife and make abortion illegal, you are dumber than your post.

    Abortion was made legal in all American states and territories in the early 1970s. In the ensuing 45 years not one plaintiff has filed a lawsuit requesting that abortion be made illegal again.

    I went to a late lunch at a women’s club to which I belong the day after the November 16 election. That’s the regular late lunch for those who cam make it and after work thing for those who work. Its not political but the members are mostly democrats.

    Weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. “Trump will outlaw abortion” “Trump will outlaw contraceptives” I expected them to claim that Trump’s gestapo would rip our IUDs out of our bodies.

    Abortion will never be made illegal in this country again. The issue is just fundraising and government grant hustling for the pro abortionists and vote begging by southern Republicans amongst the fundamentalist evangelical protestants. The catholic thing is that no catholic should get an abortion or do an abortion. Every state has laws that no medical person be compelled to do abortions. Although Planned Parenthood and other pro abortion groups that make their living fundraising and grant hustling about abortion are trying to make it a crime for a catholic Dr to refuse an abortion.

    Abortion is a non issue except for the women’s organizations that make a living fundraising and grant hustling with their scare tactics that “abortion will be made illegal soon, send money”
    and the southern republicans dependent on the fundamentalist evangelical Israel worshipping bible thumpers.

    I’m sure wikepedia has a few articles about the Ameircan judicial system. Why not read them before you post your ignorance?

    The real problem is that some states do not use the word rape for rape. They use terms like 1st degree sex assault. From a legal and police sense its OK. But the average person hears the term sex assault and thinks groping and grabbing.

    Of course in the criminal trials and plea bargains the term is made clear. But the average person not being a rapist or working in the criminal courts or police has no idea what the term means.

    It really should be changed in all states so rape is rape, a word everyone understands.

    there’s no real way to respond to these kinds of comments in some form of challenge without being accused of some untoward agenda.

    The issue of sudden revelations has nothing to do with whether one tells their parents — especially when the issues are internal to family. The issue is that in the course of one’s life, more so women than men — it is highly likely that there would have been some confident with whom one would commiserate such issues. The bellowing about daughter not telling daddy does not remove the weakness of a position that has no links to some manner of record.

    Incest is not an uncommon secret reserved among families. But the issue of how sudden such recollections come about is a matter for research. Memory is not a recorded film of reality. Even if the memory itself is accurate, the interpretation of the same can override truth.

    A hug when was ten can become a grope when one is twenty. It’s not just a matter of belief, it’s a matter of accurate accounting. And this aspect of human encounter has become rife with issues since the late 1980′s series of child abuse scandals in which five year old told wholesale horror stories. When women recalled being molested in their cribs — despite the fact that according to neurologists, the b rain at that age in incapable of maintaining such information. Yet, men have been prosecuted on such basis.

    So I am going to step forward – foolishly — and reject the notion that just because a women says, it was a secret that it should be taken as prima facie – without challenge.

    I’ve concluded that Jews are crusaders for abortion because that’s the abortion crusaders in America. I read Jewish publications and they are totally in favor of abortion.

    In America, the secular ultra liberal professional Jews rule what Jews as a group do.

    The religious Jews are out of the power structure. They are a tiny minority of Jews. Their opinions on gays and other liberal issues are meaningless in the context of Jewish political influence which in America is completely under control of liberal secular atheist Jews.

    I know there is no death penalty in the Talmud for killing a fetus. But Jewish laws and religion are irrelevant to the liberal secular atheist professional Jews who impose their values on the rest of America.

    Execute gays is in the Jewish part of the Bible but the gay movement in America has always been a jewish thing.
    At one time someone made a list of the largest 125 gay organizations in America The heads of 107 of those organizations were Jews.

    American conservatives are always hoping that the small minority of religious Jews will join non Jewish conservatives.
    They won’t. I don’t know about other countries but American religious Jews are getting more separate as the majority secular Jews get more and more atheist and liberal.

    An ultra religious Jew neighborhood in NYC voted for Trump in 2016. Conservatives cheered that a few thousand Jews voted for Trump. So what as both the city and state voted for Clinton

    In terms of politics culture education and laws the only Jews who matter in America are the liberal secular pro gay pro abortion pro criminal pro every kind of liberal insanity types.

    Judaism isn’t an organized coherent religion like Catholicism. It’s not even like Islam which has many sects with a few rules beliefs that all Muslims follow.

    I know they differ. What I am concerned about is what secular Jews have done to White Americans School integration school bussing and most important affirmative action discrimination against Whites in everything from jobs to loans was a Jewish operation.

    I once made lists of the attorneys in the anti White side of all the anti White lawsuits since 1956. 90 percent obviously Jewish names

    Old French saying Don’t listen to what he she says. Watch what he she does.

    It’s the secular Jews who do harm to Whites through the court system. So it doesn’t what religious Jews say.

    Darth Vader Ginsburg was an attorney for a major communist party front group before she became a Judge. That communist front legal foundation also made pornography legal.

    Yet she’s on the court. If you like communism and pornography Justice Ginsburg is your gal on the court.

    You’re just blathering on about women in general. Go to post 293 click on the Mitch link and read 9 page memo of the prosecutor who questioned Ford.

    The prosecutor found that nothing Ford said could be proved. She found the 3 witnesses who Ford claimed had no recollection of the alleged event. She found that Fords statements were contradictory.

    She stated that a prosecutor would file charges based on Ford’s lies. She also stated that Ford has no grounds for a civil lawsuit.

    So now you don’t like Kavanaugh on the court for some other reason.

    What did you do, record and memorize CNN MSNBC NPR PBS?? Sounds like it.

    Does a judge not bleed? Does a judge not feel? Can a judge not deny false accusations?

    Another man posted that Kavanaugh shouldn’t be on the court because he was so wimpy and weepy when questioned. Now you think he’s to macho.

  333. We’re lawfully armed too. Just joking….

    Wow!

    I am going to repeat my comment. If you can find a single comment that indicates that I found Dr. Ford’s comments something I lend support to — you are welcome to bring it forward, and I will respond.

    Now you are commenting about a law suit a discussion to which i have never addressed, muchless heard of.

    I am curious about something else, I don’t think I have stated a clear contention or any rejection of Justice Kavenaugh — again, your soothsaying skills befuddle you.

    Laugh, I have spent most of the morning trying to figure out why my housemates drains are plugging up the house. it’s a mess in her bathroom. But hardly as messy as trying to decipher your comments to me regarding Justice Kavenaugh. I think I have been above board fair and even defensive to his stead.

    Again whatever concerns I have about Justice Kavenaugh are not in relation to college or HS tomfoolery.

    I suspect you are still attempting to cover your previous misjudgments and have only added fuel to the fire now consuming you and your efforts.

    Happily I live in a country where it can be fairly said that we have had the best of a small vibrant Jewish community. I should probably say “communities” because the pre Nazi Jewish immigrants remained Jewish and suffered, very mildly, from discrimination (I think there was a Jewish golf club formed even after WW2) but General Sir John Monash (son of Prussian Jewish immigrants who went to a great Presbyterian school) was Australia’s greatest general and Sir Isaac Isaacs was Chief Justice and Governor-General who was very anti-Zionist. I understand that it has been refugees from the Nazis who have built the Orthodox numbers. Ultra Orthodox I think are just a minor embarrassment all round. Now, perhaps sadly for assimilation, there are Jewish schools where even some of the children of those who went to the leading long established private schools (Anglican, Presbyterian and Methodist particularly) or selective state schools attend. Obviously defence of Israel has been a motivating and uniting element. And why not when attacks on Israel (like, you may say, assertions that there was never a Palestinian people) are full of lies and half truths? So, in a sense, the existence of Israel has been bad for Australia. Nonetheless I think Australia’s Jewish microcosm is something of a test case for those who see what seems to be a critical mass of Jews in the US, concentrated in the blue states and no longer notably influenced by or dominated by a WASP establishment.

    So, in Australia, one can see Jews behaving just as one would like and expect prosperous, educated non-Jews to behave. Their considerable charitable donations may not be as often anonymous as those from e.g. Rupert Murdoch’s late mother (a Presbyterian atheist I think) and maybe that is not often because, as one large Catholic giver said recently, he was asked to attach his name to encourage others.

    I regard the imposition of purely religiously derived moral views such as treating abortion as murder as abhorrent (because they depend on someone else’s unverifiable faith) and, if the Catholic Church was not now a worryingly disempowered feeble dinosaur and if abortions were not readily available in Australia for women who want them I would be at least signing petitions. I’ve known Australians with passionately pursued avocation e.g. as Cornish Bard or celebrators of (sometimes contentious views of) Irishness or Welsh heritage and if one can add the excitement and romance (albeit with the violence of the Norse sagas or medieval Crusades) of the Israel of one’s imagination I don’t see anything much strange or sinister in Australia’s Jewish community feeling. Specifically I don’t see a strong us against them Jewish community in Australia or specifically Jewish policies to social issues. Numbers often matter in indirect ways. E.g. imagine the differences created by difference in size of legislatures and/or party caucuses (and little but significant details like whether they vote on issues in caucus or allow the leader to say, like a British PM in Cabinet “well the consensus seems to be… etc”). In Australia I suspect that most upper middle class educated Jews (though I know little of the very young) want to be seen just as traditional upper middle class Australians. I am reminded of the observation that Jews often make the best “English gentlemen” – giving credit to the old fashioned idea of the (ideal) English gentleman as an ideal. And doesn’t it make sense. If the first few generations of your family escaped both Judaic obscurantism and gentile anti-Semitic prejudice in Enlightenment Europe and maybe the US wouldn’t you be likely to find your models in Goethe and Wilberforce?

    Well maybe Jews don’t form ,yet, a critical mass in Australia at least by American standards ,but they do constitute a very powerful community with influence out of proportion to their numbers.

    They are about 0.4% of the population.
    About 5 of the richest 10 people in Australia
    6 of 225 Parliamentarians although with many useful allies (Malcolm Turnbull wasn’t called the member for Goldman Sachs for nothing )
    They don’ t control the Judiciary or bureaucracy though which is something to be grateful for
    They are strongly over represented in media ,especially publically funded media,and the universities

    To be fair most of the more objectionable ones are post WWII migrants /refugees .The earlier arrivals perhaps didn’t have such a huge chip on their shoulder and generally assimilated

  338. You seem to think Jewish numbers are increasing in Australia so as to raise their proportion of the population or produce communities so large that they become self-contained? Where is the evidence? I doubt that the Jewish population in Australia (unless Israel goes down and refugees arrive) is ever going to be close, or closer, to a critical mass. (Think of the Chinese immigrants in particular If you want a reason to focus on).

    Strongly over-represented in publicly funded media? I can’t think who you are talking about. I watch SBS and the ABC and no one springs to mind. (Happily I haven’heard Jon Faine on the radio for a long time). Names?

    Well I’m from Melbourne
    How about Jon Faine , Ramona Koval,Libby Gore,Raphael Epstein Michael Gawenda ,John Safran ,Robert Manne ,Arnold Zable off the top of my head
    All are regulars on the ABC

    Actually I don’t think Jewish nos are increasing ( low birth rate plus marriage out )

    Incidentally I just responded to your post from a bar in Thailand while having a drink with a (Canadian ) Jewish friend

    As I hadn’t heard any of them, a mostly ageing crew, on the ABC for ages** I had a nostalgic Google for several. And those like one time Age editor Michael Gawenda, later at U of Melbourne, would only be interviewed occasionally.

    John Safran meant nothing to me though the name came back as I read his Wikipedia. He seems to illustrate my view that Australia has got the best out of its few Jews. Unlike Libby Gore (Methodist Ladies College) he ended his schooling at the Orthodox Yeshiva College (As “the least religious boy At Australia’s most religious school” which I realise would not mean that he mightn’t end up one day all fuzzy and defensive about Israel although running naked through the streets of Jerusalem with only St Kilda Football Club scarf round his neck celebrating the club’s Grand Final win on the Sabbath leaves him a bit behind scratch for the moment). Typical…. of all those Jews who made Weimar Germany such an entertaining place and made low class – and other – nationalists seethe.

    I thought I remembered Ramona Novel’s partner circa 1990 being non Jewish but couldn’t find the name. Robert Manne married out, if he was ever in, and tends to the fashionably SJW left which is all his own work though slightly less surprising in one with Jewish background than not.

    The most provoking thought was that it might have been on Michael Gawenda’s watch that The Age in its pathetic shrunken geriatric condition had cravenly given in to Jewish lobbying and bullying and stopped publishing the highly readable Michael Beckman on Asia and Asian business. I think it was later but now *I have to ask if you can find a link to the offending article for me*. I Googled “Michael Backman Israelis” and got everything but the article. There may have been more than one but I remember reference to young Israeli tourists behaving meanly – in Bhutan I think – and remember thinking that the Jewish/Israeli protesters, apart from conflating Jewishness and being Israeli, were wilfully blind to many people’s observations of Israeli manners and manner, including my own unrepresentative sample. I suppose you could say that, on the one hand, it is a warning not to wish for a larger Jewish community (at least while Israel creates impossible issues), but, on the other, it is no different in a multicultural society to the pressure from Lebanese Muslims on their local MP who happened to be Immigration Minister, to deny a visa to a distinguished non-Jewish British scholar who was pro Israel on some issues. The trouble is the anti Beckman forces won.

    **And I doubt that, not being obsessed on the matter, you would really want to put much weight on their proving Jewish over-representation in the publicly financed media.
