Kavanaugh, Ford hearing live blog: Supreme Court nominee and professor testify on sexual assault accusations

by Kathleen Joyce, Shelley Ng

{ } ~ Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday… on the California professor’s sexual assault allegations against the judge. Ford has accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed during a house party in Maryland in the early 1980s, attempting to remove her clothes and putting his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream. At the time of the alleged incident, Ford was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17, she said, adding that Kavanaugh was drunk. “I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” Ford said. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.” Kavanaugh has vehemently denied these claims, calling them “totally false and outrageous.” “We’re talking about an allegation of sexual assault. I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone. I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years there after,” Kavanaugh said in an interview with Fox News…




Two men tell Senate that they, not Kavanaugh, assaulted Ford

by Joe Tacopino

{ } ~ Two men have come forward to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to claim that they are the ones who actually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford during a house party in 1982… and not Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Republicans on the committee released a timeline of events late Wednesday, which included details about their interactions with the two men who admitted to the attacks. On Monday, the timeline recounts GOP staff members interviewing “a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in 1982.” The “encounter” refers to an episode in which Ford claims that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in a bedroom at a Maryland house party. They had a follow-up interview with that man, and he provided more detail about the assault. Then on Wednesday, the committee staff said they spoke with a second man who said he assaulted Ford in 1982…


Panicking NYT Deletes Source Name, Caught Hiding Game-Changing Facts on Kavanaugh


{ } ~ It has become transparently obvious over the past two weeks that dummycrats-Democrats and their liberal media allies are engaged in a coordinated effort to smear… Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh with vague allegations of sexual misconduct designed solely to derail his nomination to the high court. Perhaps in a bid to help bolster the crumbling narrative surrounding California professor Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s 36-year-old unsubstantiated accusations against Kavanaugh, The New York Times just did a purported deep dive into Kavanaugh’s 1983 high school yearbook from Georgetown Preparatory School. The Times heavily implied in the article that Kavanaugh and his friends were some kind of sex-obsessed gang that openly bragged in the yearbook about their sexual conquests, especially with regard to one female student in particular named Renate Schroeder Dolphin, as they referred to themselves in a group picture as “Renate Alumni.” But as Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist painstakingly pointed out, there are several glaring problems with the article from The Times that have rendered the story “fake news” and, if The Times had any integrity left, would seem to merit a full retraction and issuance of public apologies, rather than a handful of quiet and unexplained edits. The first problem appears to be that The Times attempted to delete the name of a source for their smear against Kavanaugh and his friends. The original online post of the article cited a source named only as “Mr. Madaleno,” a singular reference to the source that has since been completely deleted from subsequent versions of the article, according to a site known as NewsDiffs that tracks such changes via online archives. Standard editorial procedure for The Times is to introduce a source by their full name when first mentioned in an article, followed by the individual’s last name and title for any future references to them. However, any such reference to “Mr. Madaleno” is decidedly lacking in this piece by The Times. Hemingway pointed out that the “Mr. Madaleno” in question is most likely a Georgetown Prep classmate of Kavanaugh’s named Richard S. Madaleno Jr., a Maryland state senator who is virulently anti-Trump and just unsuccessfully ran for governor in the state on a platform that consisted largely of touting how his being gay and progressive would “infuriate” President Donald Trump…


Brett Kavanaugh admits to ‘juvenile misbehavior,’ denies sexual assault in testimony

by Alex Swoyer

{ } ~ Brett Kavanaugh will admit to “misbehavior” and excessive drinking during his high school years… but will tell the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday that he never sexually assaulted anyone then or since. In the Supreme Court nominee’s prepared opening statement, shared by the committee on Wednesday, Judge Kavanaugh calls sexual assault “morally wrong” and “contrary to my religious faith.” He said he does not question accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that she was sexually assaulted at a high school party, but denied he was involved in any way. “I spent most of my time in high school focused on academics, sports, church, and service. But I was not perfect in those days, just as I am not perfect today,” the judge says. He adds: “I drank beer with my friends, usually on weekends. Sometimes I had too many. In retrospect, I said and did things in high school that make me cringe now. But that’s not why we are here today. What I’ve been accused of is far more serious than juvenile misbehavior. I never did anything remotely resembling what Dr. Ford describes.”… We all did that.


China won’t let U.S. Navy ship dock in Hong Kong amid trade tensions


{ } ~ China has denied a request for a U.S. warship to visit Hong Kong, American officials said Tuesday… The incident came amid rising tensions between Beijing and Washington over tariffs and follows the U.S. last week imposing sanctions on China after it bought arms from Russia. The USS Wasp, an amphibious assault ship, had been due to make a port call in the former British colony of Hong Kong in October, diplomatic sources told Reuters. “The Chinese government did not approve a request for a U.S. port visit to Hong Kong by the USS Wasp,” a spokeswoman for the U.S. consulate in the city said. “We have a long track record of successful port visits to Hong Kong, and we expect that to continue,” she added…


Limbaugh revises election prediction amid new Kavanaugh info


{ } ~ It was national headlines just a few days back when talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh suggested if Republicans couldn’t get Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court… they could kiss the midterms, in just a few weeks, goodbye. He warned if Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, “gives dummycrats-Democrats enough time, they’ll produce a woman claiming to be Kavanaugh’s secret Russian wife who Trump paid to urinate on that bed in Moscow. But the very fact that dummycrats-Democrats have continued to bring accusations out of what has been described as the “Twilight Zone” means that could be changing, quickly. Limbaugh said Wednesday, “I mentioned moments ago that I may be on the verge of revising my prediction. The prediction – and it was very precise – was if the Republicans don’t confirm Kavanaugh, that there’s gonna be hell to pay and they could end up losing the Senate and the House.” The latest accusations against Kavanaugh come from a woman named Julie Swetnick, who is working hand in glove with porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti. She claims there were gang rape parties which she attended, and at which she saw Kavanaugh. Many years ago of course…She continue to go to those parties 10 times but never reported it the police.


The march of the dummycrats-Dem Socialists’ paid anti-Kavanaugh floozies begins?

by Sher Zieve

{ } ~ This is the most embarrassing and dangerous time that I can remember for my country. The scumbag-Soros-paid dummycrats-Democrats are coming out from every conceivable rock, in order to bring down the highly righteous Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Judge Kavanaugh has spent his lifetime building a sterling reputation for honesty, kindness, service and legal brilliance is being destroyed by a group of Luciferian Left electeddummycrats-Democrats whose members have said they will do anything to stop the good judge’s confirmation to the highest court in our land. Theses truest of the true thugs have decided to decimate every aspect of Judge Kavanaugh’s life and, therefore, his excellent and decent reputation to grab back their unearned-in-any-way-necessary power. Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii recently admitted that the dummycrats-Democrat Socialist Party has a two-year plan to keep all SCOTUS seats vacant until 2020; the year they plan to replace Trump. These smears are part of it.

The danger is obvious. The embarrassment is couched in the fact that the Republicans are buying into the quite-obvious-to-even-the-simple dummycrats-Democrat lies.

As part of this latest dummycrats-Democrat 2-year plan to destroy the judge with one lie after another, a woman by the name of Deborah Ramirez has now come forth and says she was “sexually assaulted” by Judge Kavanaugh at ‘some party.’ However, she also says she was so drunk she can’t remember much of anything. And, apparently, all of those at the non-existent party don’t either. One of the men Ramirez brought up as having attended the party said that he never attended any such party. And Fox News reports: “A female classmate who signed the statement told the New Yorker that Ramirez “is a woman I was best friends with. We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening.”

One of the most interesting aspects of this is that publicity-seeker and ambulance-chaser Michael Avenatti – erstwhile attorney for “exotic dancer” aka stripper and porn star Stormy Daniels – has now jumped into the fray to, also, kick Judge Kavanaugh while he’s assumed to be down. Avenatti – who has not been called for awhile by CNN and MSNBC to appear on television, has taken this lunacy to its highest and most absurd level yet. Avenatti made up and is now offering the Pièce De Résistance. Avenatti’s wild and leftist lunatic claim as posted in the Daily Intelligencer includes: “In an email posted to Twitter Sunday night, Avenatti writes that Kavanaugh, his childhood friend Mark Judge, and others “would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them.” Gang rape? Really?

Note to all Republican Senators

If these obvious and horrific tactics from the dummycrats-Democrat Socialist Party ( dummycrats-DSA) are allowed to continue, fester and actually be given any credence whatsoever, the Republican Party may as well disband and all GOP Senators should resign and go home to spend more time with their families. If all it takes for thedummycrats-Democrats to derail any Republican candidate is make wild and unsubstantiated claims…we are already doomed.

If Republican Senators are so dull and devoid of intelligent thought that they are unable to understand and process the various and continuing ruses being employed by the DSA members, they are useless to We-the-People. And, by the way, do not believe the polls that say the people are against Kavanaugh. Remember the polls that showed Donald J. Trump losing badly to liar-Hillary Rodham Clinton – even on election night? The polls are weapons in thedummycrats-DSA’s arsenal.

Republicans…have some courage for a change…or get out! If you never fight, we will never be able to confirm any other candidate…anyway. The dummycrats-DSA will always defeat you if you refuse to stand up for what’s right. Evil will never rest until the righteous are overcome…or the evil is conquered.

“But the wicked are like the troubled sea; for it cannot rest, and its waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, saith my God concerning the wicked” – Isaiah 57: 20-21
