Police arrest nearly two dozen Kavanaugh protesters




Before or after they got paid?




---------------------------------------




Nearly two dozen protesters opposing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh were arrested on Thursday, as activists occupied the offices of key Republican senators. 

















Twenty-three protesters were removed from the Dirksen Senate Office Building, where they were protesting at Sen. Bob Corker's (R-Tenn.) office, for unlawful demonstration activities. They are being charged under a D.C. law that forbids protesters from crowding and obstructing hallways and passageways, according to a spokeswoman for the Capitol Police. 


The protesters chanted "we believe women" as they lined the hallway outside of Corker's office.


Yes...pure as the driven snow.



 Many of them wore buttons that read "I Believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford," referring to the woman who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in the early 1980s when they were both in high school. 

The protesters include activists from a coalition of outside groups, including the Center for Popular Democracy Action and the Women's March.
The protesters also demonstrated in offices for Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, and Susan Collins (R-Maine), who is considered a pivotal vote on the Trump nominee.

In each of the offices, the demonstrators shared stories of sexual assault and urged Republican senators to oppose Kavanaugh. 

After occupying Collins's offices, the group of protesters went to Sen. Jeff Flake's (R-Ariz.) office. Like Collins, Flake is considered a potential GOP swing vote on Kavanaugh's nomination. 

Flake, a member of the Judiciary Committee, initially described himself as "inclined" to vote for Kavanaugh but warned leadership this week that he would vote against Kavanaugh if Ford wasn't given the chance to testify. 

Grassley has set a hearing for Monday and invited both Ford and Kavanaugh to testify over her accusations against him. But Ford's lawyer is calling for the FBI to investigate the incident as a precursor to Kavanaugh testifying.

------------------------


This much is known. Either Ford or Kavanaugh is lying. After all this time it's going to be next to impossible to decipher who's telling the truth. But one thing bugs me. On May 30th 2006 Kavanaugh was appointed Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia CircuitA prestigious position to say the least. Yet, during this Bush appointment Ford chose to remain silent. My gut tells me this has little to do with Kavanaugh and everything to do with Trump.

The Saga of Christine Blasey Ford








Since this story broke she deleted all her social media accounts.
Why would you do that unless you were trying to hide something?



Let's backtrack a little bit.



 Feinstein has known about the letter from Ford since July but just dropped the bomb recently. Ford (a college professor) had to know she could not make these accusations without being challenged. Now Ford claims she is being rushed into testifying, even though Feinstein sat on this disclosure since July (intended), and now wants a full-blown FBI investigation before she testifies. Full-Blown as in 
R-U-S-S-I-A-N  C-O-L-L-U-S-I-O-N which should take to the end of Trump's second term. Again that's the real objective. Delay, delay, delay.

I think Grassley and his pal Grahamnesty have been more than fair. They said, "OK fine will listen to what you have to say." Grassley stated she could testify either publically or privately before the Judiciary Committee. If she wasn't comfortable with that they would fly to her home state (CA) to take her testimony. Something I never heard of before. Talk about bending over backwards!

But for Ford, that's not good enough.

Excerpts from an ABC article no less:

Ford made her choice. Now she needs to tell her story to the Senate



Christine Blasey Ford has either developed a case of cold feet or she’s playing footsie with the Democrats. Neither one of those options is useful if she wants to stop Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

But she made the choice to reveal her identity, knowing that it would upend her life. Now, she needs to tell her story to the people who will decide whether Brett Kavanaugh ascends to the Supreme Court -- the members of the United States Senate.

Absent that, she has put herself and her family in harm’s way to no end.

If Ford’s lawyers are insisting on an FBI investigation in the hopes of finding some corroborating evidence of a decades-old alleged crime, that’s again understandable, but highly unlikely to happen.

And if they are taking that tack because the Democrats want to delay the confirmation process in the hopes of jettisoning Kavanaugh and energizing female voters, that’s likely to backfire.

As it is, some Republicans who had said they needed to hear from the accuser before they would vote, are now getting restless, saying that she’s been invited to testify in any way that’s comfortable for her -- in private or public, with senators or staff—and that she should do so.

The Democrats’ insistence that the Kavanaugh nomination is being railroaded sounds like politics as usual, rather than concern for a wronged woman. Perhaps they hope that the longer they string this out, the more unlikely it will be for the president to restrain his Twitter finger and that he will say something to outrage women voters.

Some Republicans in the Senate are already stepping onto treacherous terrain by suggesting that Ford is “mixed up” or “confused.” Give them a few more days and who knows what they might say.

But so far, they and the White House have, by and large, played it smart. They have repeatedly stated that Ford be respected and heard. They have focused their fire on Democrats -- not her. And as the week has progressed, and no other woman or fellow high-school partygoer has come forward, they have renewed their support for Kavanaugh, who has unblinkingly denied the allegations.

If Ford took this life-altering step because she believes that Brett Kavanaugh should not serve on the Supreme Court, then she must come forward to tell that to the Senate. And then it will be up to the members to decide what to do.

As it is now, without her testimony, it is almost certain that Judge Kavanaugh will soon become Justice Kavanaugh.

Joe Biden, whose own party criticized his treatment of Anita Hill, now says women should be believed



When it comes to sexual harassment it's safe to say 'creepy' Joe knows of what he speaks.

Video 427
 


Former Vice President Joe Biden seems much more eager to speak out against a Supreme Court nominee now than he was in 1991.

Biden has, maybe unsurprisingly, called for the postponement of the confirmation vote for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — in light of the accusation that Kavanaugh attempted to rape a peer, Christine Blasey Ford, when they were high schoolers attending a house party.

“Vice President Biden believes Professor Ford deserves a fair and respectful hearing of her allegations, and that the committee should undertake a thorough and nonpartisan effort to get to the truth, wherever it leads,” a Biden spokesperson said in a statement provided to CNN. “He believes the vote should be postponed to allow this to happen appropriately, because this is an appointment for life to the nation’s highest court, and getting the decision right is more important than getting it done on a rushed timeline.”

And Biden would know a thing or two about hearings for sexual misconduct allegations against a Supreme Court nominee: He presided over the hearing for questioning of Anita Hill, who famously accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment while he was going through the confirmation process. Whether Biden’s handling of the hearing was “respectful,” however, remains up for debate. 

Hill had accused Thomas of repeated sexual harassment during their time working together at the Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, where he was her boss.

For Whom the Bell Tolls




Ah...depends on what party you're in.




 The Dems/MSM went back to Kavanaugh's HS  days to try and dig up some dirt... yet this guy gets very little scrutiny:





Ellison’s ex-girlfriend Karen Monahan (abuse occurred in 2016)


 This deserves a little reflection. Where's the outrage? How come this wasn't a big story from the MSM? 

(When Christine Blasey Ford saw a therapist in 2012 telling him her tale of 'woe'
she became the story. Not so with Monahan... even though their stories are almost identical.)

Why does this happen? Because it rolls with the hate Trump and everything he stands for narrative.





This incident (Kavanaugh) supposedly occurred in the summer of 1982 while they were still in HS. Not only did she accuse him of trying to rape her she also said, “I thought he might inadvertently kill me." That's pretty damning requiring some action on her part don't you think? 
 So my position is this. Since the timing here is highly suspicious and coming from a blown in the glass liberal I want to see concrete documented proof, (as above) a police report, restraining order, etc, otherwise it’s a non-story.


What's the real Democratic objective here? Keep stonewalling the Kavanaugh appointment in the hopes they take the Senate.
