As I’ve mentioned, my favorite part of this whole whoop-tee-doo has been the idea that Doctor Professor Blasey Ford is, due to her fear of flying that prevented her from testifying on Monday, somewhere out there in middle America roaring down a highway with her pedal to the metal to get to Capitol Hill by tomorrow. Air travel is sterile and respectable, while cross-country road trips are the essence of Americana. The only thing more American than driving across the country is riding a raft down the Mississippi.

But now, the Daily Caller explains, it turns out …

FORD TRAVELED TO MARYLAND IN AUGUST DESPITE ALLEGEDLY FEAR OF FLYING

4:42 PM 09/26/2018
Benny Johnson | Reporter At Large

Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford took a polygraph test in Maryland, far from her home in California, despite her alleged fear of flying.

Documents released Wednesday show that the polygraph test was administered to Ford on Aug. 7 at the Hilton Hotel in Linthicum Heights, Maryland, not far from the Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

This could be another one of my false memories, but I think I’ve stayed at that hotel. It’s right next to the Baltimore airport. I don’t think too many people stay there who don’t fly in. Maybe she drove all the way across the country and at the last moment wound up in an airport hotel because Priceline was offering a good price. But, more likely, she flew.

Dr. Prof. Blasey Ford’s July 30 letter to Sen. Feinstein said she would be on vacation in the Mid-Atlantic through August 7 (when she took the polygraph test) and would be available back in California from August 10. Perhaps she Cannonball Runned from DC to Palo Alto on August 8-9?

I like to think so.

  1. Damn Steve, you get the ultimate movie script written…….and reality takes it away!

  2. Someone probably flew her on a private jet and she spent the last 6 days rehearsing. The FAA should let us know. Every passenger manifest, even on a private jet is recorded with the FAA. Hey, isn’t Trump in charge of the FAA?

    This was the conclusion I came to. There was no way Ford was going to be allowed to drive across the country and lose all that valuable time for the Dems' top lawyers to coach her into top prevaricating form.

    I am certain that DiFi and the rest were more than willing to sedate Ford and load her onto a private jet if that's what it took to get Ford to DC posthaste.

    Seriously? Talk about the Nazis!

    For domestic flights is the manifest verified against the boarding passengers at both ends by airport staff? What is the sanction if you're caught with an unlisted passenger?
    , @Pericles
    They could warm up by talking about perjury and her statements, then asking her where she has been the last few days and how she got to DC.
  3. In the interests of great justice, shouldn’t Kavanaugh be required to publicly upload his DNA profile, to see if we can tie him to any cold cases

  4. For those of you not hip to the scene, that’s the cover of Bronze Age Pervert’s new book, Bronze Age Mindset.

    From Amazon: “The Atlantic named this author as possibly Steve Bannon’s contact in the White House…”

    Zina Bash is pretty cute. If I were half the perv they're making Kavanaugh out to be, I'd be pinching her on the ass every day and twice on Sunday.

    The fact that she's backing him up in the hearings is solid proof that Kavanaugh's 100% innocent.
  5. I am shocked at the implication that Professor Doctor intentionally misled people!
    OT great illustration of how the Onion “Kelly” editorial cartoon winds up working against its own sarcasm and straddling Scott Adams’s Dual Powerpoints. Riverdale is Archie comics adapted into a Gilmore Girls or Pretty Little Liars or Dawson’s Creek TV soap for teens.

  10. Rumor: there’s yet another accusation coming, that Kavanaugh was drunk at a party and shoved a girl into a wall.

  11. This is so typical.

    Even assuming Ms. Ford is telling the truth, fending off an unwelcome sexual assault is just not that traumatic an experience. Trust me; I know.

    Worse things have happened to me — and far worse things still have happened to others I’ve met. Far, far worse, now that I think about it…

    If being abortively pawed by a drunken seventeen year old of the opposite gender is all you’ve got to complain about, you’ve had a pretty smooth life.

    Really. This precious whining on the part of those who’ve actually had it all served up to them on a silver platter seriously gets on my nerves. Fucking hell. I don’t ask that it all be balanced out and made equal — but could I please at least be spared the privileged and pampered whining about what few unpleasant events have marred the gentle, pleasant progress of their lives?

  21. Those who insist that Kavanaugh is entitled to a presumption of innocence and “due process” seem to be missing the point of this whole shebang. Clearly they have learned nothing since the infamous Bork hearings. Kavanaugh is not in a courtroom testifying under oath before a judge and jury. Under such circumstances he would be entitled to all the defenses provided under the Constitution, including due process. In this case, however, he is testifying before eleven politicians representing two political parties who have skin in the game and crave power. Which means that it’s a POLITICAL process. It’s about politics and not about competence as a judge or legal philosophy, so “due process” and “fairness” be damned!

    In an ideal world Kavanaugh SHOULD be entitled to a presumption of innocence and due process. But that’s not the world we’re in. I don’t know what could be done to change the system but clearly, the process with which justices are appointed to the SCOTUS absolutely stinks! Period!

    Universities, such as where Professor Ford works, provide "accommodation" for students with any of a range of disabilities.

    There are students with Joseph Merrick levels of physical affliction whose needs for accommodation provoke feelings of empathy for their situation along with admiration for their courage to be in school.

    The most common situation, however, is where a student carries a note from an arm of the U directing each instructor of each class they take that they have an undisclosed disability (privacy prevents disclosing it, even to their classroom instructor) and they are to be granted "time-and-a-half" (90 minutes on a 60-minute exam) along with "testing in a small group" precluding part of that time being with the rest of the students in the large auditorium classroom (they cannot concentrate when the student sitting behind them is coughing up gobs of disgusting phlegm because they cannot control their cold symptoms).

    The number of students with an undisclosed disability requiring this manner of testing accommodation runs nigh 3 per 100 students and the number appears to be rising.

    Professor Ford has such a disability requiring accommodation much like the students in her class who present her with their note from the University disability assessment center? One wonders how students requiring accommodation for every class they take in their career at the University function upon graduation, and now we know?

    If 3 percent of college students are granted extra time and special testing situations following them until graduation, what impact is this having outside the walls of the University? Does the requirement for accomodation of an undisclosed disability follow this cohort thoughout their careers and lives beyond college? What are the social and economic consquences?

    “Dixie” has them both beat by a mile.

    The fact is, “national anthem” is an oxymoron in America. Many localities have better songs of their own, even if imported. Kansas City, St Louis, Chicago, Buffalo. California, Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Texas. Broadway, 42nd Street, the Brooklyn Bridge, the 59th Street Bridge, the A train…

    Here’s another interesting tidbit. In the US, society allows juvenile crimes to be wiped clean from one’s record, because society recognizes that teens are still growing up, and some teenagers get themselves into things they shouldn’t. The takeaway is that we recognize that they shouldn’t be damned throughout the rest of their life over things that happen as teens, and that most people do tend to straighten out as they move away from the rebellious teen years and become adults. We recognize that we cannot rely on a teenage moment of indiscretion that happened at 17 to tell us about how someone at 53 will behave. In particular, the liberals are the ones who have been pushing for forgiveness of criminals and soft on crime, so they should be most on board with this.

    One can think what they will over the Kavanaugh case, though Ford’s claims seem pretty suspicious to me based on the facts we have. But regardless, it seems like if society, especially the ‘compassionate’ left were maintaining logical coherence, then this whole issue would be moot anyway as something that should not hang over Kavanaugh’s head nearly 40 years later or telling us anything about him now regardless of how it played out.

    Of course, logical coherence is not exactly a leftist/elite strong suit, so I’m not holding my breath.

    The serious case for recovered memory, whether it exists or not, is that Julian West and the CIA developed it as a way of making Manchurian assassins with compartmentalized minds, through extreme stress (as in, repeated rape, sensory deprivation, heavy psychedelic drug use, and straightforward beatings).
    Christine Ford claiming to have recovered memory (setting aside whether there is “real” recovered memory) from being touched once at a party is like that New York city councilwoman claiming that a traffic ticket was excitimg her PTSD.

    Universities, such as where Professor Ford works, provide “accommodation” for students with any of a range of disabilities.

    There are students with Joseph Merrick levels of physical affliction whose needs for accommodation provoke feelings of empathy for their situation along with admiration for their courage to be in school.

    The most common situation, however, is where a student carries a note from an arm of the U directing each instructor of each class they take that they have an undisclosed disability (privacy prevents disclosing it, even to their classroom instructor) and they are to be granted “time-and-a-half” (90 minutes on a 60-minute exam) along with “testing in a small group” precluding part of that time being with the rest of the students in the large auditorium classroom (they cannot concentrate when the student sitting behind them is coughing up gobs of disgusting phlegm because they cannot control their cold symptoms).

    The number of students with an undisclosed disability requiring this manner of testing accommodation runs nigh 3 per 100 students and the number appears to be rising.

    Professor Ford has such a disability requiring accommodation much like the students in her class who present her with their note from the University disability assessment center? One wonders how students requiring accommodation for every class they take in their career at the University function upon graduation, and now we know?

    If 3 percent of college students are granted extra time and special testing situations following them until graduation, what impact is this having outside the walls of the University? Does the requirement for accomodation of an undisclosed disability follow this cohort thoughout their careers and lives beyond college? What are the social and economic consquences?

    A British university has been fined £400,000 after two of its students were left fighting for their lives following a botched science experiment.

    Sports science students Alex Rossetto and Luke Parkin had volunteered to take part in the test at Northumbria University, which aimed to measure the effect of caffeine on exercise.

    But after a calculation error, the second year students were given 100 times the correct dosage, causing violent side-effects and them being admitted to hospital with “life- threatening reactions” in March 2015.

    Certain Wall Street firms might have a place for that girl in their accounting departments.

    What’s the rule? Every time I’ve flown private (through friends for free) they have asked for my full name and certainly recorded it. I assumed it was some TSA/FAA requirement.

    Ibound, sorry for the late reply. Per Anon-226 the, yes, Nazi/Commie-like TSA, a subgroup of the Department of Motherland Security, may have this requirement on charter operators (FAR part 135). I wasn’t trying to ding you on a technicality in terms of TSA vs. FAA. For anyone operating a private aircraft not charging money to the public* for flying from point A to point B, it’s nobody’s damn business** who is on board.

    * That’s a very specific concept – “holding out to the public”. If you run a big business with a fleet of Challenger and Lear jets, so long as the passengers are within the company, or non-paying friends, customers, kin, whatever, my point stands.

    ** For now, that is, as the USSA Police State is ever-expanding. For more control, they can just squawk Nine Eleven! Nine Eleven!.

    Doesn’t it seem to be the case that honorifics like Dr. and Professor seem to be used by the media shall we say inconsistently? For example Bill Frist was a doctor (medical) for the whole time he was Senate Majority Leader but I don’t recall him ever being called Dr. Frist. Congressman Dave Brat is a Professor of Economics at a legitimate-ish college but is never referred to with the title. However Blasey-Ford is frequently referred to as “Professor Ford” or “Dr. Ford.” To make it more absurd, Blasey-Ford seems to be employed at a laughingstock “college” (Palo Alto University)
