Leland Keyser meets with FBI, doesn’t back Blasey Ford’s story about Kavanaugh

by Rowan Scarborough

{washingtontimes.com} ~ Leland Keyser, the high school friend Christine Blasey Ford counted on to corroborate her sexual assault charges… has told the FBI she has no knowledge of the supposed 1982 party or the accused, Brett Kavanaugh. Howard J. Walsh III, her attorney, told The Washington Times that she met with the FBI on Saturday. Asked if she had repeated the same two statements she provided the Senate Judiciary Committee, the lawyer answered, “yes.” Ms. Ford accuses Supreme Court nominee Judge Kavanaugh, and his friend, Mark Judge, of trying to rape her at a home in Montgomery County near the Columbia Country Club. They both deny the charge. Patrick Smyth, a third party-goer identified by Ms. Ford, also denies he attended any such party…  https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/oct/2/leland-keyser-tells-fbi-she-doesnt-know-kavanaugh-/?bt_ee=ClnYAGQOWP7YO0qDq4sdZg2LmGCFrJFN3LRUVRAV6J5VcoTJ3FMtvxGj1QlTNWeg&bt_ts=1538505428403

CNN Analyst Draws Imbecilic Conclusion About “Throwing Ice”

by Andrew West

{constitution.com} ~ Hyperbole is the weapon by which the left draws their line in the sand… You see, behind the scenes of the American conservative awakening that we are experiencing are any number of men and women like me; patriots who spend their days pontificating upon the subjects of freedom and sovereignty, day in and day out, attempting to put together well-crafted anecdotes and metaphors in order to keep you entertained. Others in the media go another route, choosing instead to shock and offend in order to be heard. Like ATL’s very own hip hop artist Big Boi said: “we don’t sell dope, we pimp ink pens/to provoke the folks and keep em thinking”. In other words, we’re not pushing the adrenaline high that you get from CNN’s outrageous partisanship…we would rather start a dialogue. After all, I’m not selling you laundry detergent with television commercials. The problem is, when I use a literary device such as hyperbole, I often have to justify it in order to keep my “good standing” with the social media masters of the universe. When someone on CNN says something outrageous, however, the only recourse we have as patriots is to expose them. Otherwise, they get away with it. So, in keeping with that tradition, let’s take a look at how one CNN analyst decided that Brett Kavanaugh’s ice-throwing incident during an altercation in a college bar 33 years ago impacts the credibility of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual assault against him…  https://constitution.com/cnn-analyst-draws-imbecilic-conclusion-about-throwing-ice/

Leftists Openly Plot Mass Executions of Conservatives as dummycrats-Dems Release Home Addresses of Republicans

by Mike Adams

{shtfplan.com} ~ As Leftists continue to lose political power in America due to elections President Trump and Supreme Court nominations Brett Kavanaugh, their activists are becoming more militant and extremist… Now, we’ve learned that left-wing groups are openly discussing mass executions and planned murders of prominent conservatives, and they’re using Twitter to carry out the attacks. Twitter is just one of several tech giants that selectively bans conservative speech but refuses to remove radical left-wing users who openly call for violence and murder. For political reasons, tech giants have decided to protect left-wing terrorist groups in America, becoming complicit in the escalation of the coming civil war. As just one example among hundreds, see this article from InfoWars: “KILL TRUMP, HANG HIM, HUNT HIM” FACEBOOK PAGE DOESN’T VIOLATE FACEBOOK COMMUNITY STANDARDS. Now, The Daily Caller reports that someone in the House of Representatives has “doxxed” conservative U.S. Senators by using a congressional computer to publish their home addresses and phone numbers to Wikipedia. “Doxxing” means publishing someone’s personal, private information such as the location where they live, their social security number or their private phone number. Importantly, doxxing members of the U.S. Senate allows left-wing “kill teams” to physically locate where those Senators live. Armed with this information — and driven to violent hysteria by a complicit, lying media — left-wing kill teams can assault the homes of U.S. Senators while they sleep and attempt to executive those Senators and their families. As this article shows below, left-wing activists are openly and explicitly discussing such plans on Twitter, and they are not being banned by Twitter or other tech giants…  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/civil-war-alert-leftists-openly-plot-mass-executions-of-conservatives-as-democrats-release-home-addresses-of-republican-senators_10012018

President Trump Destroys Another scumbag/liar-nObama Legacy

by Jason Hopkins

{dailycaller.com} ~ The Trump administration rolled back another scumbag/liar-nObama-era regulation… rescinding a rule pertaining to the offshore drilling industry. The Department of the Interior on Thursday announced changes to the 2016 oil and gas production safety systems rule, offshore drilling regulations that were put in place during the scumbag/liar-nObama administration. Among the reforms: independent verification of safety equipment and procedures on offshore platforms is no longer mandated; oil companies no longer have to design their equipment to operate in the “most extreme” weather conditions; and the design of some offshore drilling equipment does not have to obtain safety certification from professional engineers. The Interior Department’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement outlined all the changes in a 176-page report… http://dailycaller.com/2018/09/28/trump-obama-offshore-drilling/

FBI finishes interview with Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge

by Kelly Cohen

{washingtonexaminer.com} ~ The man named as a witness to the alleged sexual assault incident between Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford in the early 1980s… has completed his interview with the FBI. Mark Judge’s lawyer Barbara “Biz” Van Gelder, said in a statement on Tuesday: “Mr. Judge completed his FBI interview. We are not commenting on the questions the FBI asked Mr. Judge.” Judge is a friend and former Georgetown Preparatory School classmate of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault by Ford. He was told by Van Gelder to leave his Washington DC-area home because of media attention and fled to a friend’s house in Bethany Beach, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were at a house party in Maryland in 1982. Ford has said Judge was also in the bedroom during the incident. Both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied the incident occurred. After Ford and Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Arizona Republican Sen. rino-Jeff Flake said that although he supported moving the nomination out of the committee, the FBI had to investigate the allegations against them…  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/fbi-finishes-interview-with-kavanaugh-friend-mark-judge

Divided America On Display

by Tom Mclaughlin

{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ Many things divide America today but the biggest is not race, not religion, not sex, nor sexual preference. They’re all in the mix but increasingly subsumed into that primary division — political orientation. There are intelligent people on both left and right and they all watched last week’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Judge Kavanaugh. However, one side concluded that Kavanaugh is a drunken, sexual predator while the other believes he’s a victim of a savage, dummycrats-Democrat hit machine.

How can intelligent people see the same thing and interpret it so differently? Something the late psychiatrist M. Scott Peck wrote in one of his books keeps coming back to me. In The Road Less Traveled, Peck said we all construct maps to understand what’s happening in the world and navigate through life. They can be effective guides until the world changes. We may be driving along guided by a GPS unit with outdated software and find ourselves going the wrong way on a one-way street.

As evidence piles up indicating that our map is no longer accurate we have two choices: We can ignore the evidence by rationalizing it away, or we can do the work necessary to construct a new map — a new way of understanding the world. According to Scott Peck, most do the former because “the process of making revisions… is painful, often excruciatingly painful… Often this act of ignoring is much more than passive… We may denounce the new information as false, dangerous… We may actually crusade against it… and try to manipulate the world so as to make it conform to our view of reality. Rather than try to change the map, [we] may try to destroy the new reality.”

Politically, Americans tend to align with one party or the other. We trudge along for a while until we realize that neither offers a worldview we trust anymore. We can at that point declare ourselves independent, but we still tend to vote for one party or the other consistently. Almost by default, we find ourselves on the left or on the right. Is commie-Bernie Sanders really independent? Is Angus King?

In my classroom, we discussed current events, often very controversial ones. My best students argued passionately for one side or the other and I came to realize that their views usually reflected those of their parents, which is natural enough. Maybe their parents had, in turn, adopted their parents’ views, or perhaps they labored to construct their own. They were either loyal to their ancestors or they did a lot of work to draw their own political map. Each method brings with it a strong emotional attachment to a particular worldview which becomes the prism through which we view almost everything.

Emotion can cloud the thinking of intelligent people and it flooded the hearing last Thursday. Both sides were drowning in it and rational thought took a back seat. Is one side or the other manipulating the world to make it conform to its view of reality? Are both? The word “abortion” didn’t come up that day but it’s a principal dynamic in Kavanaugh’s nomination process, and both sides are heavily invested. The left sees abortion as liberating women to pursue their careers, their very lives, from the burden of bearing and raising children. The right understands abortion as dismembering innocent human babies in the womb.

Sex is another dynamic closely related to abortion. The left views pregnancy as an accident on the sexual liberation highway. When birth control fails, get to the body shop for an abortion. It’s a “women’s health” issue they claim, which implies that pregnancy is a disease. They claim that men, especially white men like the Republicans on the committee, would force women to have children, like a scene out of “The Handmaid’s Tale.” Protesters appeared at the hearing dressed in Handmaid costumes. Then the left brought in Christine Blasey Ford to accuse Kavanaugh of trying to force her to have sex.

Conservative writer Denise McAllister tweeted the following while the watched the hearing:

“At the root of #abortion hysteria is women’s unhinged desire for irresponsible sex. Sex is their god. Abortion is their sacrament. It’s abhorrent as women have flung themselves from the heights of being the world’s civilizing force to the muck and mire of dehumanizing depravity.”

She’s now in hiding after claiming she received multiple threats to rape and strangle her followed her tweet. Blasey Ford and Kavanaugh got similar threats. Although considered a sexual predator by half of America, Kavanaugh claimed in a television interview last week that as a faithful Catholic, he was a virgin until years after going to college — a rather remarkable claim for a man in 21st century America.

The Kavanaugh hearings not only exemplified America’s divide; they deepened it. As emotion continues to boil over the gap between left and right is becoming a gulf.
