How On Earth Was Kavanaugh Accuser’s Crediblity Not Destroyed When She Obviously Lied About Her Fear Of Flying She Tied To Her Assault?

September 28, 2018

How many blatant, obvious lies can an accuser who has ZERO corroborating evidence and who was literally refuted by all of her own witnesses tell and still be believed?

The answer should be one lie is way too many to believe such an accuser, especially when someone’s entire life and entire career is hanging on that accuser’s credibility alone.

I found it easiest to just take a screenshot of the takedown that ought to be completely damning of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford:

One tweet simply referred tot he transcript of the interview between the prosecutor Mitchell and Blasey Ford:

Mitchell: How did you get to Washington, D.C., today?
Ford: On an airplane.
Mitchell: When were here in August, how did you get here?
Ford: On an airplane.
Mitchell: You’ve been to Hawaii and Tahiti?
Ford: Yes.
Mitchell: How’d you get there?
Ford: On an airplane.

It is a testimony to how truly bad our news media is that this isn’t front-page and leading news in newspapers and news programs across the nation, but here is the gist:

During her public testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday, Christine Blasey Ford admitted that she has flown often for business and pleasure in recent years despite citing her fear of flight in requesting that the hearing regarding her allegations against Brett Kavanaugh be delayed.

In explaining why their client could not grant Committee chairman Chuck Grassley’s request that she travel to Washington, D.C. to testify on September 17, Ford’s lawyers cited her unwillingness to fly, which they claimed stemmed from her fear of enclosed spaces. Ford’s attorney’s further alleged her claustrophobia was brought on by the alleged assault.

Rachel Mitchell, the Arizona sex-crimes prosecutor retained by the Committee to ask questions of Ford and Kavanaugh, established during the hearing that Ford traveled by plane to Washington, D.C. to testify regarding her claim that Kavanaugh pinned her down and tried to remove her clothes when they were in high school.
“May I ask, Dr. Ford, how did you get to Washington?,” Mitchell asked.

“By airplane,” Ford responded.

“I ask that because it’s been reported by the press that you would not submit to an interview with the Committee because of your fear of flying, is that true?” Mitchell asked.

“Well I was hoping that they would come to me but then I realized that was an unrealistic request,” Ford responded.

Mitchell went on to establish that Ford flies frequently as part of her work for an Australian consulting firm, to visit family on the East coast, and to pursue her interests in Hawaiian culture, oceanography, and surfing.

“In fact, you fly fairly frequently for your hobbies and you’ve had to fly for your work, is that true?” Mitchell asked.

“Correct, unfortunately,” Ford answered.

So citing this “fear of flying” which her attorneys represented as being directly due to her alleged sexual assault by high-school kid Brett Kavanaugh, Christine Blasey Ford claims she can’t possibly fly to Washington to testify for any hearing because flying reminds her of the tight, enclosed space reminiscent to her sexual assault.  And, of course, as much turmoil as it is going to cause an entire nation and as much personal pain as a week-plus delay going to cause Brett Kavenaugh, Blasey Ford cannot possibly fly.  It’s just too traumatic.

Unless she’s going on vacation, of course.  Then she can fly for hours no problem.

I mean, Christine Blasey Ford is saying I don’t give a flying damn about the rest of the United States, I’m not flying, I’m just to afraid of flying because I’m the victim of a sexual assault.  But, you know, if it’s my vacation, or if there is pretty much ANY other reason to fly, I’m fine with it.

“Easier for me to travel going that direction, when it’s for a vacation.”

But of course impossible when the entire United States of America is breathlessly waiting for you to show up and spew your spewage if the rabidly and vindictively partisan Democratic Party wants you to use every cheap and dishonest trick in the book to stall.

You liar.  You lying liar.

Democrats got ten days of stall and delay out of that dishonest bit of credibility destruction.  And because Blasey Ford calls herself the most pathetic of all victims who ever endured victimhood, the fact that she’s a personally dishonest liar who lied out of sheer political partisan expediency isn’t being reported.

Rather, the focus of most mainline media reports – otherwise known as “propaganda” – is that “fear of flying doesn’t mean that Ford can’t fly.”  And very intentionally skipping the part that goes, “Really?  Then why couldn’t she fly to Washington and testified ten days earlier???”

If she can fly for all of these other reasons,, surely the woman was capable of sucking it up to prevent the nation from twisting in the wind in this debacle for over a week, right?

Judge Kavanaugh in his highly emotional hearing testified that this fraud perpetuated by his bogus accuser literally tortured him, his wife, his daughters and his mother as all kinds of the most disgusting hell imaginable was unleashed on him and on his family during these days while Ford was lying about why she couldn’t be there.

And again, her lie is tied directly to her testimony about her alleged sexual assault.

And then, on top of that, Blasey Ford either tells another galling lie, or else reveals that her team of Dianne Feinstein selected lawyers were so rabidly partisan, so viciously disinterested in Christine Blasey Ford as a person, that they never bothered to inform her that Sen. Grassley and the Judiciary Committee were offering to meet with her in California at her home or in any other setting she wanted.

On Sept. 21, the Judiciary Committee published the text of a proposal sent to Ford’s lawyers offering to fly committee members to California to speak with Ford:

“The Chairman has offered the ability for Dr. Ford to testify in an open session, a closed session, a public staff interview, and a private staff interview. The Chairman is even willing to fly female staff investigators to meet Dr. Ford and you in California, or anywhere else, to obtain Dr. Ford’s testimony.”

In the hearing, when Ford was asked if anyone, including her lawyers, had relayed to her the committee’s offer to visit her in California, Ford refused to answer when her lawyer objected:

Question: “Okay. Was it communicated to you by your counsel or someone else that the committee had asked to interview you, and that they offered to come out to California to do so?”

Counsel: “I’m going to object, Mr. Chairman, to any call for privileged conversation between counsel and Dr. Ford.”

Question: “Could you validate that the offer was made, without her saying a word? Is it possible for that question to be answered without violating any counsel relationships?

Ford: “Can I say something to you? Do you mind if I say something to you directly? I just appreciate that you did offer that. I wasn’t clear on what the offer was. If you were going to come out to see me, I would have happily hosted you and been happy to speak with you out there. I just did not — it was not clear to me that that was the case.”

If Blasey Ford is telling the truth here and not lying – just as she also lied and destroyed her personal credibility when she lied about her fear of flying as an excuse to do PRECISELY what the most partisan Democrats have been demanding from the moment Kavanaugh was nominated and delay, delay, delay some more – then her attorneys chosen by Sen Diane Feinstein are THE nastiest species of cockroaches ever identified under any disgusting fecal matter on planet earth.

This just goes to the narrative that, whatever the hell this woman’s issues are, the Democratic Party has been professing to care so deeply about her, only to cynically leak her letter at the most cynical possible Democrat-favorable moment when she supposedly begged for privacy and confidentiality, and then refused to inform her that she could spare herself not to mention her country a world of pain by having her testimony conducted in her private residence.

What you see clearly revealed here – if Christine Blasey Ford isn’t simply telling another credibility shattering lie – is the genuinely evil and depraved soul of the Democratic Party machine.

Which all further goes to utterly discredit her sexual assault at the hands of Brett Kavanaugh as nothing more than the very ugliest and very most cynical stunt by the most hateful people who ever lived, I’m not so sorry to say.

This is all so damn wrong in so many damn ways.

Christine Blasey Ford sent her letter to Dianne Feinstein on July 30.

President Trump had nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on July 9.

“Until July 2018, I had never named Mr. Kavanaugh as my attacker outside of therapy,” Ford testified.

“Outside of therapy” is an interesting way for Blasey Ford to put it, given that she has refused to allow her therapist notes to be released which means we have zero idea why this documented very partisan liberal Democrat who attended anti-Trump rallies first actually “remembered” her attacker was Kavanaugh.

The Weekly Standard has this:

The 2012 notes, even in redacted form, are relevant because they are the first time Ford says she described the alleged assault in any detail. According to the Washington Post, the notes say that there were four male attackers–a discrepancy Ford attributes to the therapist–and did not mention Kavanaugh by name. Ford’s husband told the Post that she mentioned Kavanaugh at the time in 2012 and expressed concern Kavanaugh might be nominated to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh had been profiled in the New Yorker that year, when Ford was piecing together memories of the alleged assault, as the most likely next Supreme Court justice if a Republican won the 2012 presidential election.

So the reason the notes haven’t been revealed is because, apparently, Blasey Ford did NOT reveal Kavanaugh by name.  The ONLY person we have saying she had EVER said Brett Kavanaugh had attacked her is her husband, who I am frankly not inclined to trust as a non-biased source for very obvious reasons.

But, let’s go with the husband’s story just for the sake of argument: why the hell didn’t Blasey Ford write this letter the day Trump was elected????  Think about it: if Christine Blasey Ford actually did NOT want Brett Kavanaugh to actually ever be confirmed, don’t you think the time for her to write her stupid letter would have been BEFORE Trump actually nominated her alleged attacker???  If the Trump team had had any kind of heads-up whatsoever that this accusation was coming, do ya think they might have nominated somebody the hell ELSE????

This is a woman who named four witnesses to her alleged attack, one her closest friend.  All four say they frankly don’t know what the hell Blasey Ford is talking about, that they never attended such a party; one says there is no possible way that Kavanaugh ever did anything like this, and her best friend says she doesn’t even remember ever even MEETING Kavanaugh.

From point three of an article entitled, “Eight Big Problems For Christine Blasey  Ford’s Story”:

3) Worse, the four other people she identified as attending the party, including Kavanaugh, all deny knowledge of the gathering in question, including Leland Ingham Keyser, who she calls a “lifelong friend.”

Keyser’s lawyer told the Senate Judiciary Committee: “Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with or without Dr. Ford.”

The other two potential witnesses — Mark Judge and Patrick “P.J.” Smyth — also deny any recollection of attending such a party. The committee took their sworn statements “under penalty of perjury.” “These witnesses directly contradict Professor Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley advised Ford’s attorneys last week.

There very simply comes a point where YOU SHOULD NOT BELIEVE SOMEBODY.  And Christine Blasey Ford crosses that line and then some.

Now, I can’t not fail to point out just how slanderingly dishonest the mainstream media is when it professes to “fact check” something.  The AP has such a piece that professes to fact check Kavanaugh and says this highly respected jurist “misrepresented the record” when he said Blasey Ford’s three witnesses refuted her allegation.  Which is to say they manage to use rhetorical ju jitsu to switch the story from what it actually is – that Ford states that these people were at the party where she was assaulted and in fact all four unequivocally state that they were not at such a party and did not see any such assault as Ford describes – into a highly technical word-game.  Because, given the fact that Ford refuses to ever actually say WHAT party or WHERE the party was located, it is therefore impossible for any honest witness to say “no attack ever happened.”  I mean, how the hell could they possibly say such a thing unless they knew precisely which party was the party in question which they don’t know because Ford didn’t specify???

Let’s just say for the categorical record that Ford says witnesses saw something that not one of them saw.  And it is amazing how dishonest the AP was in their rhetorical quibble piece.

The last of the so-called “allegations” against Kavanaugh released by Creepy Porn Lawyer of Kavanaugh having a “gang rape ring” and having a minimum of ten gang rape parties is so shockingly and so transparently false that it ought to forever end the bogus narrative that no woman would ever falsely make a charge of sexual assault.  I mean, think about it: the FBI did six separate background checks on this guy and asked all the people in his inner circle, all of his friends and acquaintainces about him, all of his neighbors, over and over, and you’d kind of think the “Well, he DID have that gang rape ring” would have come out.  I mean, this woman claims she herself went to TEN of Kavanaugh’s “gang rape ring” parties.  And you’ve kind of got to ask, “Just how many gang rape ring parties do you think YOU would have gone to – you know, especially after you yourself had been gang raped – before realizing that this wasn’t your scene???  And this wouldn’t just be a testimony to Brett Kavanaugh’s criminality; his whole TOWN, hell his whole STATE of Maryland, would have been revealed in shocking criminality.  This is the kind of thing you send in the United Nations forces to stop because all legitimate law and order has broken down.

In other words, this is so laughably false it’s beyond unreal.

And when we stop and think about all the ways – apparently at least eight of them from that story I cite above – Blasey Ford’s story collapses, so is hers.

We come to what the Democrats demanded over and over again: an FBI investigation.  Because I’m sure the Democrats are hoping this honest, unbiased FBI agent investigates Kavanaugh:

Joe Biden didn’t think much of the last time Democrats tried to smear an honest GOP appointed judge named Clarence Thomas.  After that smear was unveiled, President Bush allowed an FBI investigation.  And were Democrats satisfied with that?  Well, read the transcript of Joe Biden’s angry denunciation of the pure worthlessness of any FBI investigation into such a matter as a Supreme Court-nominated Judge being accused over sex:

“The next person who refers to an FBI report as being worth anything obviously doesn’t understand anything. FBI explicitly does not, in this case or any other case, reach a conclusion, period. Period.”

To be a Democrat is to be a hypocrite.  One cannot BE a Democrat and not be a hypocrite.

What do the Democrats want?  Well, Diane Feinstein sat on the Blasey Ford allegation and even repeatedly talked to Kavanaugh and never once mentioned Blasey Ford in any of her questions.  There was a bipartisan investigative process within the Judiciary Committee that would have kept the matter confidential, but that wasn’t in Feinstein’s naked partisan interest.

Democrats refused to listen to anything Judge Kavanaugh had to say on the grounds that they demand what they claimed was utterly pointless the last time the FBI got involved.

They didn’t want an investigation two months ago when there could have and maybe even should have been one because they KNOW FULL DAMN WELL an FBI investigation won’t turn up anything that would disqualify Judge Kavanaugh.  I mean, again, Joe Biden said it himself.  Again, think about it: Maryland does not have a statute of limitations on sexual assault, so Christine Blasey Ford could walk in – you know, because she claimed she was so dang terrified of flying in, I mean, right? – to the police department and file a complaint.  But do you know what would happen if she did that?  Absolutely NOTHING.  Because Blasey Ford doesn’t provide enough detail of a specific crime to even justify an arrest warrant, let alone a successful prosecution.

They want time.  They want time because they believe they can take enough of the Senate 38 days from now on November 6 to make a Kavanaugh confirmation impossible.  And these cynical, professional liars know that if they have that extra time, more and more liars like Creepy Porn Lawyer’s client will crawl out of the woodwork.

I think the FBI ought to investigate why Christine Blasey Ford said she couldn’t fly to testify in Washington because she was so afraid of flying when she is obviously not very afraid of flying given how many other times in FAR less important situations she has flown.  I think the FBI ought to investigate how the hell that doesn’t destroy this accuser’s credibility and render her story moot.  I think the FBI ought to investigate whether Blasey Ford is lying or if her highly partisan Democrat Party activist legal team was demonically exploiting her by not telling her that the Judiciary Committee would have traveled to her house.  On Blasey Ford’s own characterization, this was a betrayal of her, but it was just what the rabidly partisan Democrats wanted.  I think the FBI ought to be investigating precisely who leaked Blasey Ford’s letter and why the letter was leaked when it was in a manner that, again, just happens to correspond to THE most cynical partisan Democrat goal.

So if you’re going to actually “investigate,” FBI, PLEASE INVESTIGATE.

On the demonically insane belief of the Democratic Party, they need a new FBI investigation because of course the last SIX FBI investigations into Judge Kavanaugh were so incompetent that they missed a gang rape ring that was operating right under their noses and gang raped scores of young girls.  And so the Democrats are putting their bets on the FBI that missed this godawful gang rape ring to finally get an investigation right this time.

Either that, or every single Democrat is insane and evil.

Lest We Forget: OBAMA Is America’s Sputnik Moment

January 26, 2011

Obama talked about America facing a “Sputnik moment” last night.  For the record, “Sputnik” was a Soviet successful satellite that stunned America out of its complacency.  America entered the space race with a vengeance, and won it by a knockout.  Obama exploited that moment,  pointed out that America is watching the world go past us, and says we need to be competitive by pursuing massive government spending oops I mean “investment.”

A write up from Slate:

But he did evoke a huge defense issue from a half-century ago—the signal wake-up security call that marked the years of transition from Dwight Eisenhower to John F. Kennedy, the single word that has symbolized ever since the fear of slipping behind in a dangerous world: Sputnik.

“This is our generation’s Sputnik moment,” Obama said. As a result, we need to fund “a level of research and development we haven’t seen since the height of the space race.”

Well, at the heart of Obama’s State of the Union speech were many contradictions.  And I’ll get to them.  But his “Sputnik moment” thing was the worst one of all.

Allow me to cite a couple of my own articles to document just how stunningly pathetic Obama’s analogy truly is:

Space Program: Obama’s Strategy To Turn America Into Banana Republic Moving Like Clockwork

When American Greatness Is Gone, And When NASA = ‘National Aeronautics and Sharia Administration’

The first article above documents how Obama has been GUTTING the space program, and in fact RETURNING AMERICA to the pre-Sputnik vulnerability.  To the disgust and open contempt of former NASA heroes.  And the second documents how Obama has turned the now disgraced NASA into yet another tool for political correctness.

And to make sure you realize how pathetically laughable Obama’s analogy is, let’s make sure we understand that Sputnik was a Russian threat, and then let’s make sure we understand how Obama has helped undermine American interests to advance the Russians with yet another title:

Obama’s Treasonous Lies Help Russia Punk America

That one documents how Obama has undermined America’s missile defense program.  And the actual Sputnik moment was all about dealing with Russian missiles.

This guy’s talking about our Sputnik moment?  Seriously?

Conservatives had already debunked many of Obama’s lies last night before he even told them.  I’ve debunked those lies right here.

This is why Senator Jim DeMint said after Obama’s latest speech, “It’s hard to take the president seriously.”

But sadly we must take Obama seriously.  Because Obama’s real political genius comes down to one simple thing: he realized that the people who support him are stupid and ignorant, don’t know a damn thing that the incredibly biased media machine doesn’t tell them, and that he can therefore spit out anything and not get caught by much of America in his deceit.

Obama is our Sputnik moment.  By which I mean, this turd-in-chief and his policies are the reason that we are failing and falling behind while other nations around us rise up and overtake us.

One of the other major contradictions of Obama’s speech are that he is essentially acting as if the previous two years didn’t happen.  “Nothing to see over there, folks, now if you don’t mind looking this way.” Obama is saying that we need a major new “investment” (which is a tidy euphemism for yet more government pork), when in fact he has already “invested” well over a trillion dollars with absolutely nothing to show for it but more debt and more deficits than this nation has ever seen before.

Which is why DeMint said:

When asked about President Obama’s statements about government investments, DeMint said, “Now the president is promising more spending, which he calls investments, when the time is to cut spending in Washington.. The president needs to tell the American people the truth.. That its time for the federal government to do less.”

Let’s look at Obama’s trillions in “investment” and see what effect it has had on our “competitiveness”:

Why Is American Unemployment Under Obama Rising Faster Than In Other Countries?

The Dirty Secret About Our Unemployment Rate

Obama Stimulus Is Reason Why Our Unemployment So Much Higher Than Others

In other words, there is an inversely proportional comparison to Obama’s stimulus and American “competitiveness.”

And US government spending has little or nothing to such competitiveness.  Take a look at our education spending:

U.S. tops the world in school spending but not test scores

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States spends more public and private money on education than other major countries, but its performance doesn’t measure up in areas ranging from high-school graduation rates to test scores in math, reading and science, a new report shows.

That dates back to 2003.  Look before that, look after that, and the results are the same.  We spend and spend and spend while our kids get dumber and dumber and dumber.  To the extent that right now only a third of our kids are considered proficient in major subjects.

Here’s the problem: liberals call for more and more and more spending, but liberals make sure that all the largess goes to them, and goes to their politically connected interests.  Like the liberal teachers unions that are the REAL reason our country is falling behind in education.  And to the extent we spend more, we only feed the beast that is the REAL source of our dilemma and help build it into an even BIGGER problem as it uses its vast resources to protect the status quo.

Obama wants to spend billions on “green energy.”  What that means is that he wants to subsidize incredibly expensive and NON-Competitive energy sources while our rivals continue to run circles around us with cheap and efficient oil and coal.  And the more and the faster we spend, the more and the faster we fall behind.

The real sputnik moment, epitomized in the person of Obama himself, is this: America is spending itself into extinction.  It is not wise spending, because we are sucking money out of the efficient private sector, giving to an incredibly inefficient and wasteful federal government, and then doling it out on the basis of political patronage rather than common sense.

I’ll end with this: Obama is using a “mangled multiplier” as his basis for the need for more government spending.  On Obama’s and the Democrat Party’s distorted view, for every dollar the federal government spends, we get a $1.55 “bang for our buck.”  But it isn’t true.  Unless you really think building tunnels for turtles, bridges to nowhere and studying cow flatulence is going to make America great.  On the International Monetary Fund model, which just makes more sense in addition to being less ideologically biased, we only get back 70 cents for every dollar spent.  See this article for the documentation on that, and check out this graph:

In his SOTU speech, Obama provided an airplane metaphor that went:

“Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine. It may feel like you’re flying high at first, but it won’t take long before you’ll feel the impact.”

On Obama’s metaphor, government is the engine that flies our economy.  And if you reduce government spending, you eliminate the engine and the plane crashes.  But that simply isn’t true; it is PRIVATE spending that flies our economy.  And sucking money out of the private sector to create more government bureaucracy and more pork-barrel spending is foolhardy.  It is actually OBAMA who is actually removing the engine from our economy.

If we really want to experience a “Sputnik moment” and surge back to greatness, what we need to do is wake up and vote out Obama and the Democrat Party.
