By the time this column goes to press, Christine Blah-Blah Ford would’ve appeared before the coven once considered the greatest deliberative body in the world: The United States Senate.

At the time of writing, however—on the eve of a hearing conducted by the Senate Judiciary Committee to ascertain the veracity of Blasey Ford’s sexual assault claim against Judge Brett Kavanaugh—I hazard that voter distrust in the Republicans will prove justified.

True to type, Republicans will deliver a disaster to their supporters—to those banking on the confirmation of another conservative to the Supreme Court bench.

To question the two adversaries, the psychology professor versus the Supreme Court nominee, the Republicans chose an unknown, unremarkable quantity—a Phoenix-based prosecutor named Rachel Mitchell. Mitchell heads the Special Victims Division of Maricopa County, which consists of “sex-crimes and family-violence bureaus.”

This slipshod selection seemed forensically tailored to Judge Kavanaugh’s alleged crime. It almost suggested Republicans believe such a crime had occurred. Or, worse: These slithering opportunistic reptiles (with apologies to the reptile community) must feel politically compelled to conduct themselves as if Kavanaugh were indeed culpable.

Days before the hearing, this writer had warned that the Republicans did not have the male bits to defend Kavanaugh themselves: “With their choice of sex-crimes prosecutor Mitchell to quiz Brett Kavanaugh and his nemesis, what are Republicans saying? That they think a sex crime occurred?”

A better choice would have been Olivia Benson, leading lady on TV’s “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” Actress Mariska Hargitay would’ve put on a better show than Mitchell and consulted with sharper legal minds for her script. Hargitay is a liberal, but she’s a pro.

Mitchell, a humdrum, minor state functionary, was unlikely to effect a cross examination for the ages—which is what was required if Brett Kavanaugh was to have a fair shake.

For his part, Kavanaugh is oddly obtuse for one who is said to be such a great jurist. Meek, mild and emotional, he does not seem up to the task of defending himself.

Had the Republicans, also the laggards who dominate the Judiciary Committee, chosen to meaningfully fight for their candidate; they might have opted for one of two dazzling legal scholars. (Please, gentle reader, do not, in the same breath, mention TV judge Andrew Napolitano. Napolitano is a left-libertarian mediocrity who, predictably, has taken the Left’s position on the violence-against-women sub-science.)

Jonathan Turley, for one. Now there’s a fine choice for the cross examination that never was.

Another is Alan Dershowitz. A civil libertarian,Dershowitz is now emeritus professor at Harvard Law School, having taught there for 50 years.

Both Turley and Dershowitz are liberal. Both are brilliant. Both would have probably done the cross pro bono.

A fixture on television, Turley, professor at George Washington University professor, had suggested politely that Kavanaugh was not an intellect of Neil Gorsuch’s order.

As exemplars of the “big fierce minds” Americans are unlikely to see on the Court, Turley has cited Richard Posner and Robert Bork, while candidly pointing out that Kavanaugh was not of the same caliber.

As a rule, “Supreme Court nominees … are not especially remarkable in their prior rulings or writings,” wrote Turley. “They are selected largely for their ease of confirmation and other political criteria. Big fierce minds take too much time and energy to confirm, so White House teams look for jurists who ideally have never had an interesting thought or written an interesting thing.”

Consider: Republicans can’t even get a middle-of-the-road mind like Kavanaugh confirmed!

As far as unremarkable goes: Accuser Blasey Ford has certainly distinguished herself in this department.

Other than that she writes as poorly as is expected from an American university professor, and that she speaks like a valley girl (but, alas, doesn’t look like one)— Ford is unremarkable.

But then bad people are often banal.

Since the Senate extravaganza featuring the judge and his accuser were not criminal in nature, Democrats and their pussy-hat harridans have made the case that judge Kavanaugh was not entitled to due process of the law—to be presumed innocent, to be informed of the charges against him, to confront witnesses against him, and enjoy legal representation.

“Look, we’re not in a court of law,” shrieked that monster of a woman, Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii.

Likewise, to justify their philosophical contempt for American constitutional legal protections, hordes of TV harpies, all baying for Judge Kavanaugh’s blood, relied on the same sub-par “reasoning”:

They were not seeking to convict—the offensive against Kavanaugh was not criminal in nature—therefore, claimed the conga-line of cretins presiding over the lynching, they have the right to sully the man in every way possible.

Not that one expects argument from asses, but there is more than a procedural difference or two at stake here.

Just law, as instantiated in the Bill or Rights, constitutes a declaration of the values shared in a society. We afford a man the presumption of innocence partly because the law instructs us to so do, but mainly because it is the right thing to do.

Underpinning the legal protections afforded to an accused in our adversarial legal system are vital ethical imperatives in which our society is meant to share.

In her initial list of demands “to be heard” (that cliché from a cadre of women that never shuts up), Ford evinced utter contempt for Kavanaugh’s natural, Sixth-Amendment confrontation rights.

Blasey Ford had initially demanded of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee that “Brett Kavanaugh be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear [her] testimony.”
Among other rights, Sixth Amendment constitutional protections afford defendants the right to confront their accusers and the accusations against them.

Like the sizeable mob that supports her—Blasey Ford doesn’t share a fidelity to and a respect for due process of law.

That many Americans no longer believe all are entitled to equality under the law reveals a great deal about the fault lines that mar and scar our country.

  1. haven’t been paying much attention to this latest (((DC))) dog-and-pony show

    but, from what I’ve read second-hand on a couple sites

    Miss Lindsey, to the astonishment of all, Manned Up…

  2. I’m on your side Alana. But arguing from the constitution? Your Libertarian is showing. The Constitution is no longer in force. It is buried under six feet of “interpretations” and in any case there is none to enforce it. It was written by white men you know.

    The accuser had her say which is more than she would have got from me. Nobody is appeased. Whether Kavanaugh is confirmed or not is still up to the Republicans . Either way this spectacle will hurt the Democrats in the election. The Jacobin/Maoist left is ugly and menacing. Not a winning combination in an election.

    Dershowitz is far too overtly political to serve as a judge at any appellate court. He’s smart but decidedly partisan. Besides that, no Senate would confirm him.

    Agree. Dershowitz once said America “owes it” to the Jews to protect Israel at all cost. I don’t think I want such a person on the supreme court. Plus he’s a registered Democrat and very pro-immigration:

    Townhall just reported Kavanaugh has enough votes to confirm. All 51 GOP senators are voting for him, plus maybe a few Dems.

    They were too afraid of the women’s movement, and therefore could not bring themselves to challenge her in any way. Interspersed between the prosecutors questions which did not have the time to develop, was the awards ceremony given by the democrats to the honoree.

    But we , the people, all saw that she was mentally disturbed. Her appearance (post clean up); her testimony, her beat up looks, drinking coke in the morning, the scrawl of her handwriting in a statement to be seen by others, the foggy lens, the flat affect, the little girl’s voice and the incredible testimony (saying “hi” to her rapist only a few weeks later and expecting everyone to believe that is normal, remembering that she had one beer but not remembering who took her home; not knowing that the offer was made to go to California as if she were living on another planet, her fear of flying, her duper’s delight curled up lips – all the tell tale signs were there for all the world, except the Senate the media, to see.

    She went to a shrink with her husband in 2012, and it was her conduct that apparently needed explaining, so she confabulated a story about 4 boys raping her when she was 15 to explain her inexplicable conduct to her husband, and maybe even to her friends. She later politicized the confabulation, and she is clearly going to make a few sheckels with her several go fund me sites that will inexplicably show $10.00 donations every 15 seconds.

    She was the leaker. She went to the press almost immediately in July. They were too afraid to point that out to everyone because the phoniest thing about her was that she wished to remain anonymous.

    Funny, i.e. witty and poignant. Please don’t apologize. Humor is precious air these days.

  8. What is missing from this conversation is the common law concept of natural justice. While a few Republican Senators have danced around the topic by calling the process a disgrace, none has been forthright in condemning the Democrats for their denial of natural justice.
    None of the cowards has used the law to confront Feinstein and her ilk for suppression of evidence. None has demanded her removal from the committee for her failure to follow protocol or her staff leaking information. They had a chance to play hardball with Feinstein and bury the bitch forever, but chose to sacrifice Kavanaugh instead.

    If Dershowitz once said America “owes it” to the Jews , then he must know his Jew Testament well.

    “For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews’ spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings.” (Romans 15:27)

    Politicians have no interest in truth, justice and the American way…..their interest is only getting reelected, they are the scum of the earth, but then they are for the most part lawyers.

  15. My comment on those proceedings today was this: “This is awful, I’ve never seen a more tawdry, sleazy performance in my life – and I’ve seen a few. No Democrat will ever get my vote again. They can find some other party to run with. Those people are despicable. Details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKSRUK-l7dM”

    Later on, I noted: “None of this has anything to do with his record as a judge – and that’s not such a good record: https://www.lawfareblog.com/judge-brett-kavanaugh-national-security-readers-guide at least if you’re concerned with the Constitutional issues SCOTUS will actually decide. None of it, not one word. It’s irrelevant. It’s partisan harassment, it’s defamation, it’s character assassination, and all of it is *irrelevant*, it’s useless – and in the end it will be both futile, because there will be a party line vote, and counterproductive, because a lot of people will be totally repelled by the actions of the Clintonistas – because that’s what those people are.”

    and that’s my opinion of this charade.

    The author’s statement “the greatest deliberative body” to describe the U S Congress is laughable at best.

    I have never seen a more spoiled bunch of democRAT crybabies who don’t like what is going to occur with the appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to the supreme court. This is the democRATs last grasp at ruling by judicial fiat.
    It was refreshing to see the republicans finally “growing a pair” with their scathing criticism of the democRATS.

  22. After watching the Big Circus yesterday, I rate Ford’s performance a 6 (sympathetic person, but weak memory and zero corroboration). Cavanaugh gets an 8 (great opening statement, wishy-washy and a dearth of straight answers during questioning). Had it been a tie, the fact that the putative event occurred when he was 17 would break it.

  24. @anastasia

    Good points, but yesterday’s inference is that she became permanently disturbed by the incident 36 years ago…. In my experience, most psychologists are attracted to that field to work out personal issues — and aren’t always successful. Ms. Ford fits that mold, IMHO.

    One thing I haven’t heard is a challenge to Ford’s belief that her attackers intended rape. That may or may not be true. Ford testified about “uproarious laughter.” That sounds to me more like a couple of muddled, drunken male teens having their idea of “fun” — i.e., molestation and dominance (which is certainly unacceptable, nonetheless).

  26. As a foreign observer, I watched the whole hearing farce on CNN till midnight in Germany. For me, from the beginning, it seemed a set up by the Democratic Party that has not emancipated itself from the Clinton filth and poison. As their stalwart, Chuck Schumer said after the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh that the Dems will do everything to prevent his confirmation. They found, of course, a naive patsy in Dr. Ford, not to speak of the other two disgraceful women that prostituted themselves for base motives. Right from the beginning, Dr. Ford played to me the role of an innocent valley girl, which seemed to make a great impression on the CCN tribunal that commented biasedly during the breaks of the hearing committee. It was a great TV-propaganda frame.

    Don’t forget; the so-called sexual harassment occurred 36 years (!) ago. Dr. Ford was 15, and Judge Kavanaugh was 17 years old. But Dr. Ford discovered her “suffering” after she heart from the nomination of Kavanaugh in July 2018. Why didn’t she complain to the police after the “incident” happened in 1982 or at least after the “me to movement” popped up? May it as it is. Everybody who knows the high school or prep-school-life and behavior of American youths should not be surprised that such incidents can happen. When I studied at the U of Penn for my M.A. degree, I got to know American student campus life. For me, it was a great experience. Every weekend, wild parties were going on where students were boozed and screwed around like hell. Nobody made a big fuss out of it.

    On both sides, the whole hearing was very emotional. But get one argument straight: In a state of the law the accuser has to come up with hard evidence and not only with suspicions and accusations; in a state of the law, the accused has not to prove his innocence, which only happens in totalitärian states.

    Why did the majority of the Judiciary Committee agree on a person like the down-to-earth and humdrum person such as Mitchell to ask questions? It seems as if they were convinced in advance of Kavanaugh’s guilt. The only real defender of Kavanaugh was Senator Lindsey Graham with his outburst of anger. If the Reps don’t get this staid Judge Kavanagh confirmed they ought to be ashamed of themselves.

    This hearing was not a lesson in a democratic process but in the perversion of it.

    ” Dershowitz once said America “owes it” to the Jews to protect Israel at all cost.”

    Not saying whether I agree with that sentiment or not, but generally, when one agent “protects” another it is offered because the recipient is helpless and stands to the first as the disadvantaged to the stronger.
    I don’t see how this template can be applied to the relationship between Jews and the United States.

    And generally, protection is offered as a boon, not a payment of a debt.

    And finally, feeling as though God or the World or someone in particular is in arrears on payment of some moral or spiritual debt to Jews seems to be an attitude which they carry about themselves permanently and which they bring to bear on every encounter with the wider world around them.

    Claiming rape after 36 years is not only insane, but presently puts the “burden of proof” that it did not occur on the accused who quite often is the “real” victim.

    3) Camela Harris showed that the mixture of a recently decolonised Tamil woman and a long freed black slave descendant doesn’t produce a rational human being…

    4) You can take Corey Booker out of Newark, NJ but…

    • 313 AD Worship of a Jewish Rabbi decriminalized.
    • 400–800 AD Various famines in Western Europe associated with the Fall of the Western Roman Empire…population of the city of Rome fell by over 90%, mainly because of famine and plague.

Not sure how he is described as a leftist, but then again at one point the constitution was really the leftist project with the bill of rights a concession to the conservative anti federalists. If there is a group that has been proved right again and again it is the anti federalists.

    Jesus’s relatives and family would not be called Jews? That’s a lie that you’re telling yourself to get around the fact that Jewsus taught in Jewish Synagogues — and was extremely popular.

    “He taught regularly in their synagogues and was praised by everyone.” (((Luke 4:15)))

    And just like the Jews today, Jewsus had a burr up his jewass about Gentiles and despised their White Patriarchal Society, embodied in the Roman Empire at the time. Read Matthew 20:25, Mark 10:42, and Luke 22:25. If you’re a Gentile, Jewsus despised you, unless you sold out and became a submissive slave-boi to Jewsus Kike.

    You seem obsessed with the fact that Jesus and his followers were nominally Jewish but forget that Jesus essentially rejected Judaism and created a new religion that became the foundation of western civilization. Christianity and western civilization are one and the same thing. There is none without the other. In places where Christianity has been eliminated the civilization has disappeared. Our current culture and country are a case in point. Not eliminated but certainly in decline. Where it has been re-established as in Russia prosperity follows. What Christians have built around the world is constantly under attack. This is always the pattern.

  64. I often read The Unz Review for the rather excellent international analytical writings. A lot of which not only can be corroborated through other international wires but often takes a rather impartial look at the factual data behind the events being written about.

    However, with the recent atrocity that has been taking place in the current Senate hearings over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, writings such as this one by Ilana Mercer seem to take on a very sinister, partisan tone that smacks of right-wing extremism.

    From the very opening of this piece Ms. Mercer immediately demonstrates an underlying lack of respect for Dr. Christine Ford (Dr. Christine Blah-Blah Ford) as if this woman came forward for the sheer spectacle of it all. Does Ms. Mercer have some inside information about this women that we don’t. If not, I would suggest that she avoid such derogatory judgements.

    Undoubtedly Ms. Mercer has never been sexually assaulted or has met women who have. I have met several women over the years who have had such experiences and to a person, none of them would ever risk such an event as the recent hearings have demonstrated.

    However, I can understand Ms. Mercer’s overall disgust with the entire situtaion since I can agree with her in several factors; the most egregious being that the Democrats used Dr. Ford as a pawn in their attempts to disallow Brett Kavanaugh from ever taking a seat on the Supreme Court.

    To. Ms Ford’s credit, she never wanted to be there and attempted to avoid it by contacting her own representatives months before Brett Kavanaugh was even selected for nomination.

    I listened to a majority of these hearings and I have to agree with the Democratic side of the interpretation of them; Brett Kavanaugh does not have the temperament to sit on the Supreme Court but I felt this way even before the Ford testimony became an issue. This man couldn’t even answer legal questions directly and obfuscated at every point. This is a man with an agenda who is being pushed down the nation’s throats with many “useful idiots” such as some on this thread have show to be with their unbridled support for the Republican position. But not to worry, you are in good company as most Americans are historically and politically ignorant people in general.

    The Republicans on the other hand were just as underhanded in their attempts to pack the Supreme Court not with what are popularly called conservative jurists but in fact in the actual lexicon of political science are known as reactionaries; some of the most dangerous political ideologues in the US political spectrum today that are only equaled by the lunatic fringe of neoconservatives that has captured the nation’s economic and foreign policy endeavors.

    What is worse is that a number of the respondents to this piece appear to be as ignorant of this event as Ms. Mercer is and promote their own brand of partisan politics with both sets of authors reducing a serious situation in our nation’s political infrastructure to hatred of Democrats with the idea that somehow Republicans are at some level of virtue that has been taken advantage of by the opposition. The classic example of Senator Graham’s tirade against the Democrats, a southern hick if there was one who denigrates the rich history of the Deep South simply by his existence on this planet. Every time that man opens his mouth he says something completely unintelligible that only one that is a classic narcissist can accomplish.

    What is worse is that Ms. Mercer makes fun of the event with her comments regarding Ms. Mariska Hargitay and others as suitable replacements for the vapid Ms. Mitchell, while a number or respondents took her bait and responded in kind. To begin With Ms. Hargitay does the SVU show out of a desire to bring a sense of understanding regarding abuse towards both men and women in the United States as the recent premier of season 20 demonstrates. She is also heavily involved in organizational work that supports those who have experienced such abuse in their lives.

    Ms. Mercer’s comments regarding Alan Dershowitz are even more laughable as the man is a complete clown and is hardly a superior jurist. One just has to read his various statements on subject matter to understand this.

    Believe it or not, the US Supreme Court has been a political sham since the end of the War for Southern Independence or as we Yankees like to call it, The American Civil War.

    If one were to read the voluminous documentation on this court’s history, it could easily been found how much damage this institution has done to US society. For one thing, what type of lunatic thinking provides such an institution with the power of being able to sit on its bench for life with the idea that this would reduce partisanship or eliminate a sitting jurist’s own agendas?

    We have seen how well that has worked out…

    Right now this institution is involved rolling back decades of social justice law (which in reality and Constitutionally was supposed to be left to the states), which if accomplished to completion will negatively effect every single reader of this piece. And the complaints will really roll in. So support Mr. Kavanaugh if you will.

    In the current situation, Trump and his Republican cohorts have made it very clear that they want people on the court who are very friendly to US business and have reactionary agendas (white men rule). And the Republicans have been quite happy to comply with this troglodyte’s inability to reason with anything beyond a candy-wrapper.

    Yet, we have an entire host of respondents to this post who have damned the Democrats without any denigration for the ignorant loons that populate the other side of the political divide.

    Both parties are an atrocious evil in our society and should be abandoned post-haste by all for a more parliamentary system that has much fairer representation of the populace at large. Of course, we can’t do that because we are America and we have our own Constitution.

    Well, guess what? America has become a sociological sewer, which has skewered a Constitution that has never been interpreted as it was supposed to be and instead has been violated on so many occasions in so many ways as to make any reading of it apply to present day political almost an impossibility. The worst of these transgressions began in 1898 when corporations were wrongfully considered having rights at the same level as Human beings.

    I would strongly suggest that Ms. Mercer and her supporters here get off their lazy, ignorant behinds and begin some in-depth studying of our Constitutional history and why we have landed up at this moment in time.

    I suggest that if you do you will not only be outraged but will look at the Republican senators in this hearing as just as vile as the Democrats on this committee.

    And for Ms. Ford… Well, to stand up to such an onslaught of denigration, you should only have such courage…

There are now 3 radical leftists on the Supreme Court, all female and feminist, two Jews and one Mestizo. If Hillary Clinton had been elected president -and she won the popular vote- there would now be 5 radical leftists on the SC. At least one of her nominees, confirmed by Republicans, would have been female, preferably a black. And perhaps both. And if one was male, I assume he would have been a black. In 30-40 years, if not sooner, all Supreme Court justices will be radical leftists, and all will be women, mostly nonwhite, and nonwhite males, blacks or Mestizos-Amerindians.

    Jew-worshiping Christians pride themselves on choosing a side in Jewish infighting, between Rabbi Jewsus and the other Rabbis, while despising the one White person in the Bible that acted with honor — he didn’t give a rip about Jewish infighting, and washed his hands of the matter, like any self-respecting White man should do.

    Must I add that, in the whole New Testament, there appears but a solitary figure worthy of honour? Pilate, the Roman viceroy. To regard a Jewish imbroglio seriously — that was quite beyond him. One Jew more or less — what did it matter? (Friedrich Nietzsche)

    Next, the Jew-worshiping Christians will attack the White man Nietzche for being insane, even though the Jew they worship was insane himself (Mark 3:21). Between Whites (e.g., Pilate/Romans or Nietzche) and Jews, Christians always go full Jew.

    They blame Whites (Roman soldiers) for all sorts of concocted offenses presented in the Jew Testament. They blame White civilization for trying to defend itself against Jew-worshiping Christianity. They bang on about the poor Martyrs, which is the original Holocaust/Shoa pity party for Jew-worshipers.

    Thanks for bringing E Michael Jones into the discussion.

    Teen boys and teen girls have fooled around since the beginning of teen boys & girls, but elders — even those elders who behaved the same way in their youth, imposed restraints of various kinds.

    As Jones explains, a certain group has made a practice of destroying those restraints. While the Senate scurries to memorize their scripts and adjust their stage make-up to inform fawning media of their own virtue, and coincident outrage at the treatment meted out to victim Ford (btw “blah blah Ford” was Ilana’s one bright phrase), nobody talks about how (((entertainment))) and (((media))) have systematically corrupted family life and male-female relations, in the name of destroying life lived according to Logos.

    A number of years ago, at House committee hearing chaired by Dan Burton, Benjamin Netanyahu urged the congressmen and women to “beam in Beverly Hills 90210″ and similar TV trash, to young people in Iran: “Make them want all these clothes, and swimming pools, and big houses . . . That’s subversive.”
    The audience as well as the Congressional panel tittered.
    The most amazing thing is that it did not seem to register with the Congresscritters that THEIR own young people were being “subverted,” to consider behavior like a 15-year old going to a beer party without, apparently, parental knowledge or permission, to be normal.

    https://www.c-span.org/video/?172612-1/israeli-perspective-conflict-iraq

    It is, of course, ludicrous to attempt the claim that “da joos made me do it.” Kavanaugh and blah blah Ford made their own choices.
    But as Hillary told her devotees, “It takes a village . . .”
    When the Village normalizes “subversive” behavior, young people who are properly in the age and situation of testing and developing their own mores, find themselves all at sea for boundaries and appropriate norms.
    In the Catholic world that I grew up in, we recited, perhaps without fully understanding, that “lead us not into temptation” meant that we were to “avoid the near occasions of sin.” That applied to everyone, from child to teen to adult; and for the Adult, it meant that one must never set out to be the source of temptation — of “subversion,” because that unbalanced the life of reason and moderation — of Logos.

    In my opinion, those who have made fortunes, and gained advantage, by fragmenting those boundaries — “subverting” cultural mores and Logos — are the ones whose lives and families should be shamed and shattered.

  86. The absolute best thing that could happen for the Democrats, and the worst for Republicans would be to get Kavanaugh in and have him overturn Roe vs. Wade. Anybody who doesn’t understand this is a dumb cluck. Abortion is the only issue on which Republicans get elected. Abortion is the only club clueless Republicans have to beat Democrats with. Republicans absolutely love Roe vs. Wade. It is their meat and potatoes and cherry pie all rolled up into one. Without it, the Republican party will just fade away. There can be no doubt of this, if you are not blinded by irrational emotion.

    What will happen then? All states but hillbilly states will pass laws legalizing abortion. If a woman wants an abortion, she just takes a bus from, say Kentucky to Illinois. Eventually, the hillbilly states will fall in line. And that will be it for that “earth-shaking” “issue.”

Has anyone reported on the nitty gritty of that deal? ‘Every battle is won or lost before it is ever fought,’ the Art of War line goes. Given the time limits —and again, who wanted them? Who agreed to that? Ford’s own personal attorneys? If so why aren’t the Republicans putting that fact on blast? But, again, given the time limits, what more could be done?

    Maybe the GOP plan was or is to agree agree, then power the nomination through, and then, if necessary, challenge her more on the better ground of an impeachment proceeding/trial? An impeachment trial, which, I understand, would be, by definition, more of a trial? As more of a trial it would have different presumptions, and one might conduct a longer, uninterrupted, and more thorough and possibly devastating examination of the accussor?

    Again, who agreed to the time limits and why?

    Deluded. Jesus was Jewish.

    Not only was Jesus racially Jewish — he would have been vastly more Semitic / Middle Eastern in Genetic terms compared to today’s Ashkenazi “Jews”, who are heavily european (almost universally they are a large part Italian, and to a much lesser extent in many cases Germanic or Slavic). I’ll again cite Jon Entine’s column about the substantial Italian genetic contribution found by a genetic study of Ashkenazi Jews, found at the website of Genetic Literacy Project.

    Either accept that a Jewish man was the saviour sent by God, or don’t, but either way he was racially, genetically Jewish. And if you believe that God really did send him as a saviour of mankind, that he was even divine himself, then to a Christian why would it matter that God chose someone in a Jewish body?

    Ms Ford and her brother are third generation CIA. Grandfather was an assistant director, father a CIA contractor who ran a CIA bank.
    Brother worked for Black Rock Fund a CIA investment fund. Ms Ford is director of the CIA recruitment center in Palo Alto California

    She is a CIA employee doing this under orders of the CIA.

    Her sponsor in all this mess is Senator Feinstein. It was recently revealed that a Chinese spy was manager of Feinstein’s San Francisco office and her personal driver. Feinstein’s husband is a multi billionaire who made his money from Chinese slave labor factories.

    I’m a woman. Like virtually all women things have happened to me. My main beef with men is the incessant approaches when I’m out and about in public. I know it’s just friendly flirtation when it happens constantly it’s very irritating.

    I too, like all woman was mauled while “making out” as it was called. He did apologize a few days later. A man was in a parking lot pulled a gun on me and told me he would kill me if I didn’t get into his car so he could rape me. Gun was pointed 2 feet from my stomach. I screamed and he ran away.

    Almost all women have been mauled by a date. And almost all women have a serious rape attempt or rape.in their life Sometimes it happens when we are 16. Sometimes it happens when we are 60 But eventually it happens to most women Get a group of women over 40 together and 8 out of 10 endured a rape or rape attempt.

    In addition to being a woman I was a probation officer and had the rape case load for many years .

    I didn’t do the investigations of course but it was a small county and criminal courts police probation district attorney morgue jail all in the same building So we all knew each other ..

    I did this before and I’ll do it again so you, who are completely ignorant of criminal investigation of any crime can learn how a criminal investigation is done

    If you don’t understand the difference between accusation and charge I’ll explain the difference.

    Accusation is A claims B did something.
    Mommy, brother hit me. Brother, no, you hit me

    A charge is made when police decide there is good reason to believe a crime has been committed and arrrsts a suspect. It doesn’t mean suspect is guilty of the crime, just that there is good reason to believe suspect committed a crime

    The next charge is when a district attorney, after an investigation decides there is enough evidence to prove that the suspect committed that crime in a trial The standards of evidence in this country are very high.

    Ford was questioned by an experienced rape prosecutor who informed the press that there was no reason to prosecute whatever Ford claims happened to her.

    Ford claimed that when she was 15 she was at a swimming pool and heard about a party and decided to go. She first claimed it was a big raucous party lots of kids

    She claimed Kavanaugh dragged her into a bedroom shoved her on a bed and both kissed her and put his hand over mouth to stop her from screaming. She escaped. She has about 6 versions of how she escaped from the locked room

    Later she changed her story. there was no party. Only she and 4 others cane to someone’s empty house. The others were Kavanaugh Leland Keyser her school friend a girl and Smith and Judge 2 boys. They went right upstairs into a bedroom and Kavanaugh shoved her down on the bed

    professional investigation and evidence

    The 3 people the lying witch claimed were in the bedroom and witnesses all hired attorneys who wrote letters to the committee that it never happened Therr was no party or the 5 arriving at an empty house and going right upstairs to a bedroom.

    The men went to school and knew Kavanaugh. The woman, her friend had her attorney stating that the attack never happened and that she didn’t even know Kavanaugh.
    Ford is lying and only an ignorant naive idiot would feel any sympathy for the CIA employee doing what CIA higher ups ordered her to do.

    Soooooo Let’s pretend it’s summer of 1982 and I’m a sex crimes detective in the Maryland town the 15 year old lying witch lives in. Let’s say it’s Silver Springs. Her mother brought her to the police station the day after the liar says something happened.

    The uniform on the desk calls me to come and take the report I’m me, a woman cop who delights in arresting rapists and collecting evidence that will convict them. I work closely with the prosecutor as I investigate.

    Q. What happened?
    A. Kavanaugh assaulted me last night.
    Q what’s his description address?
    A Can’t describe him don’t know address.
    Q what exactly did he do?
    A pushed me down on a bed either kissed me or out his hand over my mouth then I escaped.

    I decide it’s some kind of 2nd degree assault after going over take off clothes grab breast frottage etc

    Q where did this happen
    A at a party
    Q I mean where was the party house beach where
    A it was at a house but I don’t know where
    Q what town silver springs Potomac Chevy chase
    A I don’t know what town
    Q you’re 15 can’t drive how did you get there?
    A I don’t know
    Q walk drive take a bus bike?
    A I don’t know
    Q any witnesses?
    A Leland Keyser my girl friend 2 boys Smith and Judge friends of Kavanaugh
    Q what’s their phone numbers and addresses?
    A I only know Leland’s

    At this point I’d type up a statement and have the lying witch sign it.

    I’d get on the phone books of south eastern Maryland looking for Smiths and Judges Also the property records and utility bills DMV registration. Well I’d look for judges, not Smiths

    About 2 I’d leave for her friend Leland’s house If her mother was home I’d go in and wait. If no one was home I’d wait till a teenage girl arrived ask if she was Leland and ask about the non party non assault.

    I’d go back to the station call the mother and tell her no witness no evidence no case.

    Then I’d finish my report no witness case closed. If Ford had not been obviously a lying witch I might tell the mother I’d keep trying to track down the boys

    I was a probation officer and had the rape case load for many years. I know a lot more about it and how to investigate it than you do.

    How dare you defend that lying witch who works for the CIA. It’s obvious it’s a CIA operation. She was selected as victim because she went to girls schools Holton. Kavanaugh went to Georgetown Prep at the same time and the schools held parties and events together

    That’s how same sex schools arrange things. The school administrators arrange parties for the parties for the kids and the kids date each other

    So the CIA wanted to attack Kavanaugh. They searched and searched for any woman who worked with or knew Kavanaugh who would come forth as a sex assault victim.

    They couldn’t find one. Finally they searched law school then college finally law school. Probably searched their own personnel records. CIA checks go all the way back to grade school, even for 3rd generation employees and contractors.

    So they found that a CIA employee went to what’s known as a sister school to his school Georgetown Prep.

    You sympathize with her, the lying CIA witch traumatized for 37 years about something that never happened.

    I thought I would die and leave 4 babies, 4 month old twin boys and 2 girls 16 months old and 28 months old.

    But I’m an arrogant tough proletarian deplorable redneck and did what we do. I opened my mouth and screeched a banshee howl and the rapist ran

    Then I took pen and paper out of my purse wrote down his license plate. Then I drove to the police station and made the report. Then I drive home and forgot about it.

    The lying witch Ford I faking all this delicate flower c**p. She’s CIA for gods sake.

    Unfortunately the possibility of middle class boys from a Jesuit boys school c. 1982 behaving with such crude ineptitude with a teenage girl after drinking alcohol is not implausible. Nor is it implausible that a girl, possibly primed with lots of sensible advice, all based on the male being so much stronger and not necessarily tame and civilised, should suffer a kind of long lasting PTSD despite not being raped or even injured. (I rely on the advice of mature women who know how it happens and that only some can shrug it off).

    As identity is apparently key I would like to know about the contents of the counsellor/psychiatrists notes of 2012 and any other early occasion of allegedly naming Kavanaugh. Have I missed something? On reflection my thought that her prima facie credibility (for those not blessed with superior body language reading skills) would be hugely enhanced by showing that she had named Kavanaugh many years ago but, on reflection, one would want to explore possible reasons for that as well as how consistent her earlier confidential account was with her testimony.

    I think that you have generalized incorrectly about Jewish law. First, Karaites reject matrilineality, and they were more prominent in the past than they are today. Karaites reject also the Babylonian Talmud and the Jerusalem Talmud. So it’s false to suppose, as you imply, that there is a single unified system of Jewish law, i.e. Jewish way to walk. Given that Karaites have their own system of instruction and learning, it’s reasonable to add that there is a third Talmud in addition to the two just mentioned. You might also notice that Karaites share Jesus’ disgust with Israelites who place their own sectarian traditions above Torah. See Mt. 15:6-7. (Read on through v24 for an important announcement about the intended beneficiaries of Jesus’ mission.)

    Second, how is descent traced throughout much of Tanakh? Was this done matrilineally alone? or do we find evidence of an important patrilineal tracing of descent?

    A third weakness of your claim is evident from the Gospels published under the names Matthew and Luke. The authors and editors were concerned to show patrilineal descent from Abraham and David, and Luke traces all the way back to Adam and God. Why would Matthew and Luke do this if matrilineality is the primary means of establishing tribal membership among Israelites? Your claim, if correct, appears to make the evangelists guilty of inserting unisraelite notions into the concept of the messiah and the prophesies through which the Israelites promised a messiah to theirselves.

    When I see an in-depth article with credible analysis on this matter, I’ll let you know.

    A very interesting response.

    I was under the impression that the Karaite Jews only abided by the Old testament. That being said I did not read anything to suggest that they developed their own Talmud.

    On another interesting point, I read a document a number of weeks back (However, I have not corroborated this information.) that Adolph Hitler exempted the Karaite Jews from any consequences from the Nuremberg Laws and they were not to be harmed. This may explain why it was found that a Jewish hospital was running in Berlin throughout the war.

    I voted Trump, and I’m glad for abortion being in big cities keeping the nigger population from exploding. I am against white girls getting abortions, but they don’t much anyway. Tiny, tiny issue.

    I’m a one-issue voter: 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. That’s it. Makes politics real simple. Trump delivered everything I voted for with the first Supreme nomination. Anything else is just icing on the cake.

    Immigration is a huge issue, but the 2A takes care of that too, eventually.

    The violent nationalists who WILL address the problems you caused are no more to blame for the necessity of their terrible actions than white blood cells can be blamed for the diseases they attack.

    2A single-issue voter for Trump here. 2A takes care of immigration and its proponents when the time comes.

    Deliver our nation from immigration.
    Deliver our people from invasion.
    Deliver us from Arab, Black, and Asian.

    St. Breivik, pray for us.

    Ya gotta give Ilana credit for her prescience in correctly predicting that Rachel Mitchell’s performance would be a dud verging on fiasco.

    Her most vivid memory was the two boys loudly laughing?

    If someones intention to rape was thwarted, what is funny about that? Shouldn’t he have been angry?

    Kav was very achievement oriented. I don’t think he would have just given up.

    Why was she traumatized for life? She won, no?
    Its not automatic that surviving a life threatening event is a major trauma. People are frequently elated afterward.

    All we have is her practiced narrative about her feelings.

    Re Ford’s Fear of Flying: does she take lresctiption medication to relax her in those traumatic situation

    Re Ford’s Polygraph exam: per her teztimo y, it was conducted in a hotel co ference room near Baltimore Washington Airport just after attending her grandmother’s funeral, and just before boarding another flight.
    She said she was “crying.”

    Had she taken pre-flight relaxant?

    What is the protocol for admi isterjng a polygraph in a situation of such high stress?

    Aren’t most people told that best lrep for lie dete tlr test is to be well rested, relaxed, no drugs or alcohol?
    Who made the decisions to administer polygraph at just that time and circumstance?

    “It takes a village” only if the nuclear family has been blown apart and you want to re-engineer the family structure. “Modern Family” is one such edutainment supplement in case anyone didn’t get the memo. “Will and Grace” wasn’t broad-based enough after gay marriage was passed. Love Wins!

    Far too many YIDS are crucifying that Kavanaugh Christian Judge, IMHPO.

    Bloomenthal, Schumer, Feinstein … your Sanhedrin is showing.

    Some Jews DESERVE Gassing! IMHPO

  153. APilgrim says:

    So, the Yiddish crucifixion of Christian Judge Roy Moore is ‘Off Topic’?

    Meanwhile Christian Judge Brett Kavanaugh is being crucified, by YIDS.

    As was Christian Judge Clarence Thomas and Christian Judge Robert Bork.

    Seems ‘On Topic’ to me.

    Christine Margaret Blasey Ford testiLIED to the Senate last week.

    It was not a very convincing performance by the delusional liar. There is no physical evidence and no corroborating testimony to support her FICTIONS. All correlations have been negative. She LIED about Lie Detectors, Kavanaugh, and everything else. “Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus.”

    Who falls for that kind of Cheap BS?

  155. APilgrim says:

    Christine Margaret Blasey Ford lied about Lie Detectors in her senate testimony.

    Or was that her te$tiMONEY?

    I’m not much of a bible scholar, but E. Michael Jones says Saint Paul declares the Jews to be the enemy, in some sense. Maybe it depends on how we are translating the relevant terms. Christians have a duty to be kind to all people whatever their faith or non-faith. Is there a special duty to support Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs?

  157. I got the feeling that neither party was very interested in the Truth. I myself was worried that Kavanaugh might be guilty and not be confirmed i.e. I desperately wanted to get a pro-life majority on the court. But the Truth can be a powerful force for good. I would happily trade the possibility that Kavanaugh would be proven “guilty” for the chance he would be proved innocent. Think how beneficial it would be if we could look the Dems in the eye and say, “So there! Your accuser is a fraud.” And that is the only way, I fear, that he CAN be confirmed, since the pressure on Flake, Collins, and Murkowski to vote him down is enormous.
    Republicans have failed in their job by refusing to do everything in their power to prove Kavanaugh is telling the truth and Ford is lying or severely deluded. It’s almost as if they wanted to get Kavanaugh through without embarrassing Ford. That is too ‘surgical’ a strike to be pulled off by a party as inept as the Republicans. By insisting that Kavanaugh’s accuser always be treated with dignity they undercut the reasonable assumption that one of the two is lying. Dems are happy to act on the assumption that Kavanaugh is lying, so once again we get the asymmetry: One party is trying to win and the other party is just as happy to lose.
    The GOP is crippled by the leftism of its big donors, who are only conservative on the issues of Israel and tax cuts. They encourage the GOP to use the evangelicals and Catholics as a “vote plantation” to whom they make promises they don’t intend to keep. You would think the conservatives would wake up but they never do, in part because their leaders are getting paid off.
    Even if Kavanaugh gets on the court we should devote every free minute to demonstrating his actual innocence of Ford’s charge. That is more important even than the midterms.
