Let’s look at the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has testified that Kavanaugh tried to rape her at a party in 1982. She provided names for three witnesses. All three witnesses have stated that they have no recollection of such an event.
Furthermore, Ford’s friend, Leland Keyser, has stated under oath that she has never met Kavanaugh, either with or without Ford being present. Judge and Smyth both stated under oath that they have never seen Kavanaugh behave in the way described by Ford.
Apart from the lack of corroboration, Dr. Ford has also lied under oath. The crucial event that led to her restored memories was an argument over a second front door for their home. But we now know the second door was an entrance for renters that lived in their house.
In case you haven’t had time to look up Psalm 40, it is so completely apropos, that I thought it would be appropriate to reproduce it here. I’m going to capitalize some (IMO) important words. That will be the only alteration.
I waited patiently for the Lord;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the SLIMY PIT,
out of the MUD and MIRE;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord
and put their trust in him.
Blessed is the one
who trusts in the Lord,
who does not look to the proud,
to those who turn aside to FALSE GODS.[b]
Many, Lord my God,
are the wonders you have done,
the things you planned for
It’s Saturday Bible Time. Now is a good time to pray. Pray without ceasing. Pray when you’re working, when you’re resting, when you’re playing. Pray as much as you can. Pray earnest prayers. Ask God for intercession. We are at a crossing point. Prayer is the answer.
No matter what you’re doing, you can be thinking of God - and praying. Asking God to hold the devil spirits at bay. To bring his intercessory angels into the battle on our behalf. Most of all, pray to thank him for what he’s already done to bring us to this point.
Every day now I find myself thinking, I never thought I’d see that. When I see those things, I know that God is at work. He’s interceding on our behalf, building hedges of protection around us.
I find myself struggling to put into words the maelstrom of emotions churning inside me. I’m angry, a deep, white-hot anger, at what’s been done to Judge Kavanaugh. I’m disappointed that the GOP has once again acceded to Democrat demands.
I’m optimistic that Judge Kavanaugh will be appointed to the Court on Monday, as Leader McConnell has assured us will happen. I’m terrified that yet another false allegation will be thrown out this weekend, once again fouling up the process. I feel terrible for Dr. Ford.
She has been used and abused by the Democrats in the most vicious way possible. I’m furious at Diane Feinstein for being so transparently deceitful and blatantly political in her actions. My heart aches for the Kavanaugh family. They have been viciously slandered.
Even though they’ve clearly lost the battle, the losers continue to lie about Kavanaugh. AP FACT CHECK: Witnesses do not exonerate Kavanaugh yahoo.com/news/ap-fact-c…
Let’s look at what each of the fact witnesses said. Which, amazingly, the AP “fact” checkers put right in the article and STILL lied about it.
‘Even Mark Judge, who Ford says was in the bedroom when Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, has not denied that such an episode took place. His sworn statement to the committee says "I have no memory of this alleged incident," ''do not recall the party" and "never saw Brett act
This may not be very popular, but I’m going to express my opinions about today’s hearing. I watched the entire thing, from beginning to painful ending.
First, Dr. Ford. I feel very badly for her. Thanks to the Democrats, she has been put through hell. (Don’t worry. I’ll get to Kavanaugh.) I believe her. I think she experienced something very traumatic. For some reason, she thinks it was Kavanaugh, although it was clearly not.
From the moment she reported her story, the Democrats took over and used her like a cheap suit. I don’t think she sees that now, but she will. And when she does, it will hurt - badly. She seemed to me to be in a great deal of pain. Who puts two front doors on their house?
Summary of Actions by Chairman Grassley and the Senate Judiciary Committee Related to Allegations Made and Disputed Regarding Judge Brett Kavanaugh judiciary.senate.gov/press/rep/rele…
This is the information that was floating around yesterday. It includes a timeline of the Judiciary Committee’s investigative actions to follow up on the allegations against Kavanaugh. It also includes a narrative of the Dems complete failure to cooperate.
Mon 9/24 “Committee staff have first interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in 1982 that is the basis of his [sic] complaint. He submitted a written statement earlier in the day.”
At this hour, we still don’t know if Dr. Ford will actually show up for the hearing. If she does, here’s what I think will happen, based on all the tidbits I’ve been picking up along the way.
She’ll be given an opportunity to fully describe her experience. The gaps in her memory will be probed, but she will basically be believed. She experienced something awful that she has repressed, and her memories are befuddled.
After she has full articulated her thoughts, she’ll be presented with copies of some emails she sent where she expressed doubts about whether or not it was Kavanaugh. (Remember, Congress has subpoena power, so they can get her emails.)
OK, we’re going to take a look at Julie Swetnick’s sworn DECLARATION (not affidavit) that is not notarized. http://22.214.171.124/focus/f-news/3690885/posts
Points 1-5 are background history. Point 6, claims she met Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh at a house party and they were “joined at the hip”. So, she’s tying to the two together and accusing both of crimes.
7. She states she attended “well over” ten parties at houses and that they were a common occurrence “nearly every weekend” and Judge and Kavanaugh acted “highly inappropriate[ly]”, yet she continued to attend the parties. She claims they were “overly aggressive”
Today’s sentencing of Bill Cosby was a sad day. It marks the end of an era, when Hollywood stars were admired and looked up to. If Dr. Huxtable is dirty, how can anyone in Hollywood be clean?
We’ve know for years about the hedonistic nature of some Hollywood stars and the abject immorality of people like Madonna and Miley Cyrus, but the conviction of Cosby strips the veneer completely. There are little left in Hollywood that is redeemable.
It remains to be seen if it’s possible to save Hollywood, or if it’s even worth saving. How far it’s fallen from the days when stars like Gary Cooper, Jimmy Stewart and Lauren Bacall filled the screens. It fills me with great sadness.
Since I can’t stand ignorant people, I’m going to write a thread in response to your request. Do with it whatever you will. And BTW, ignorant means unlearned, not stupid. If you don’t know the facts, you’re ignorant.
Patrick Smyth: “Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women,” nypost.com/2018/09/19/kav…
Incredibly frustrated is putting it mildly. We have a woman who has made a vague accusation that cannot possibly be addressed directly. She’s very clearly partisan, as are her attorneys.
They have done everything in their power to delay her testimony in a transparent attempt to delay or destroy the Kavanaugh nomination. The GOP is forced to tread lightly because of the squishy middle that’s looking for an excuse not to vote for a highly qualified nominee.
I see a bunch of whining and complaining about weak-kneed Republicans on Twitter tonight. The sunshine patriots seem to be out in force. There’s rumblings about not voting for Republicans in November. So, you want to cut off your nose to spite your face? How childish.
How stupid. How completely out of touch with reality. We are in a fight for the soul of America. We can’t afford the luxury of being angry at the Republicans who we wish had more steel in their spines. You let the Dems take over in November, and you can kiss your ass goodbye.
And your kids. And your grandkids. And everybody you love. Now how stupid is that? Please don’t tell me your surprised. You KNEW what these people were long before now. You’ve known for years they’re a bunch of weak-willed pussies that collapse at the first sign of trouble.
It’s late, I know, but my grandkids just left, so you’ll have to forgive me. Tonight I want to talk about being in the hospital as a Christian. I’m fine now, but recovery will take about a month. So, why do Christians get sick? Why do they die?
I often hear people say it was God’s will when someone dies or is a horrible accident. It’s never God’s will. That’s Satan’s will. He is the god of death and destruction. The reason Christian’s get sick and die is because we live in Satan’s world.
In Satan’s world, evil reigns supreme. Only a strong belief in God can overcome that, and the battle is constant and ongoing every day. The slightest chink in the armor allows Satan to get in a wreak havoc.
This whole sordid affair with Christine Blasey Ford has been a lesson in power politics. First, Feinstein sat on it until the last possible minute, in the hopes that it would torpedo the nomination. Then, the GOP (brilliantly IMO) reacted by saying let’s hear what she has to say.
That threw the Dems (and I include the media here, because they’re monolithic, for the most part) for a loop. They were obviously unprepared for that reaction. So, since the goal was to torpedo, they dropped back to delay. The FBI must investigate (which would take months.)
But Grassley was having none of it. The charges are public. The hearing should be public. Suddenly, the “offense” was playing defense. Meanwhile a bunch of women (65) came out in support of Kavanaugh saying he was a perfect gentlemen, even when dating them.
I guess I’m going to have to thread this, because it’s too complicated to respond in one tweet. First of all, I see nothing wrong with Rosenstein’s response. Strzok was exposed, removed, demoted, and eventually fired. His indictment and conviction is next.
Unfortunately, these things take time - time that many patriots don’t want to allow, because they want hangings now. I understand. I find it frustrating too. But the indictments and convictions will come, in due time. I don’t blame anyone for not believing that.
We’ve had an obviously two-tiered justice system for a long time, so it takes a leap of faith to think things are different now. I get it. I really do. I also understand why so many think Rosenstein is a bad guy. Because they think everyone in DoJ is a bad guy.
He really slammed her didn’t he? As usual, the media knows full well that many people will run with the headline without reading the story. And so they steer the news in the direction they want while being able to claim they were fair and covered the story.
This woman claims, without evidence, that we should believe Ford, then totally screws up the details. Worst of all, she says one of the dumbest things I’ve ever read.
“Hi all, deleted this because it served its purpose and I am now dealing with a slew of requests for interviews from The Wash Post, CNN, CBS News. Organizing how I want to proceed. Was not ready for that, not sure I am interested in pursuing. Thanks for reading”
Let’s be charitable and give Dr. Christine Blasey Ford the benefit of the doubt. Let’s assume that she is remembering an actual incident from her teenaged past. Even under the best of circumstance, this does not implicate Brett Kavanaugh.
Ford has made the claim that three men were present during the time when Kavanaugh allegedly attacked her. Kavanaugh has vigorously denied the charges - twice. But, the other two men involved have both stated on the record that they have no recollection of the incident.
Not only that, they have gone on to say that it doesn’t sound like the kind of thing that Kavanaugh would do. So, we have four eyewitnesses, three of who relate the same information - it never happened. And we have one - Ford - who says it did.
After seeing this tweet this morning, which raises serious questions about their daughter’s claims about Kavanaugh, I decided to take action. I notified both of my Senators, and I started researching. The Blaseys have been quite busy defending themselves in court.
I’m going to adapt a Nike advertising blurb for our weak-kneed media. Just. Say. It. Grab yourselves by the collective gonads and say it. Stop beating around the bush. nationalreview.com/2018/09/trump-…
“Did they say this because they believed it was true? Because they wanted to believe it was true? Because they had misplaced confidence in Christopher Steele, the former British spy who shared their anti-Trump contempt? Probably a bit of all those things.”
Oh please! Everyone with enough brain cells to put two and two together already knows it was all manufactured bullshit. Just. Say. It. Ah hell, let’s make it a hash tag. #JustSayIt
But this thing kept me up all night. I didn’t sleep worth a crap, thinking about all the ramifications. So, I’m going to comment on it.
Here’s the basics. A mathematician was troubled by the fact that the Greater Male Variability Hypothesis was not backed up by math. There is plenty of evidence that the hypothesis is correct, but he felt compelled to prove it using mathematics. (Stick with me. I’ll explain.)
There’s a lot of confusion about the guys behind the Report For The President website. (I’ll give you the url at the end of this thread.) I just posted a thread by @TheLastRefuge2 that claims that Joshua Macias is not who he purports to be.
Before you automatically assume these guys are up to no good, you need to do your homework. Tradmom has been warning me that the whole thing is a LARP, and pointing out that others think so as well.
