Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh´s
accuser, willing to testify next week

CBS News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/20/2018 4:31:35 PM

A lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has alleged Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when the two of them were in high school, said in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Blasey is willing to testify before lawmakers as soon as next week, but ruled out Monday, the date the committee had scheduled for a hearing. In an email to committee staffers obtained by CBS News, Ford´s lawyer Debra Katz wrote that Ford "wishes to testify, provided that we can agree on terms that are fair and which ensure her safety.

No. Neither she nor her lawyer have the right to dictate anything.

Stop this now. Confirm.

What is this about needing assurance to "her safety"? Are they expecting violence? Perpetrated by whom?

Iwas a teenager in the late 1950s. Even that far back, we girls were groped by overeager boys from time to time. It was what teenaged boys do. We tried to stay beyond reach. Someone groped Christine Blasey perhaps, but it wasn´t a crime then and is not a crime 36 years later. I support Judge Kavanaugh who should not be dragged through this charade. Ford´s gotten death threats? I am confident Judge Kavanaugh has gotten ten times as many.

If the incident did occur it would have been a misdemeanor if charged. I can´t believe we are doing all this because of a misdemeanor that may or may not have happened in high school. It´s more political correctness gone amuck.

Prosecution witnesses including traumatized children are regularly required to be in court at the appointed date and time or risk having the court dismiss the prosecution case. No witness has ever been able to negotiate with a court the terms of his/her testimony. The constitution requires that the defendant may confront and cross-examine the witnesses against him. Reliving the incident is a sad but necessary reality.

She doesn´t want to testify, she wants to claim Republicans silenced her by trying to force her to testify when she was unable. The privileged white men on the committee will do anything to protect one of their own. They even traumatized an innocent victim who only wanted to share her story.

Monday is National Pizza Day and that has always been a special day in her family.

Have another slice Dr. Ford as Chuck Grassley says all in favor of confirming Judge Kavanaugh...50 yea. All opposed?...50 nay.
The deciding yea vote is cast by VP Pence.

She has not alleged facts to support a misdemeanor, contrary to previous posters. She has not alleged someone grabbing her breasts or the front of her crotch or her butt through her clothing. She did not allege anyone trying to kiss her. She has not alleged that the activity was done for the purpose of sexual gratification. She is asking us to infer from her subjective interpretation of the event as attempted rape. This would not survive the preliminary hearing in Pennsylvania. I have represented men wrongfully accused of this sort of thing. I would be happy to cross examine her, free of charge. The cross examination needs to be vigorous and aggressive. She would be laughed out of court for waiting 36 years. Based upon what I have read online, my cross would land her in the psych ward. And rightly so. I would sleep like a baby afterwards.

The democrats are banking on GOP to be worried and wanting to be "fair" which if they make any concessions is that she can do it in private session.

So, show up on Monday, or move along.

Besides, it´s looking more and more like she may not really know, and may want to ensure she doesn´t commit perjury so trying to get her story straight.

She has to say that she will testify sometime in the near future to keep the wimpy Republicans from voting Kavanaugh’s conformation out of the Committee. She will probably agree to testify late next week, and then will postpone until the next week, if she does finally testify, she will demand a complete FBI Investigation, because by that time the liberal and socialist Democrats will come up with other issues that they will claim needs investigation. Maybe another woman will come forward with another allegation. Obviously the wimpy Republicans are scared to death and the Democrats know they can string those Republicans along especially since the RINOs could go any way when the vote comes.

How good of her..On her terms of course.

I think this has been carefully coreographed by the Democrats since President Trump first announced that Kavanaugh was the nominee. Ms. Ford had her story, as a California professor how did she know to hire Katz (a George Soros attorney)? Every step, has been carefully pre-planned to keep ANY conservative from being confirmed. And ruining Brett Kavanaugh? You can´t seriously think this troubles Leftists at all. A progressive would ruin his or her own mother to advance the cause. I doubt if Feinstein herself believes Ford´s amorphous hole ridden story.

In Maryland if the authorities even accepted the incident as an assault right after the incident occurred, it would have been classified as a delinquent act and would not be a criminal offense under Maryland law because everybody at the scene was under age 18 at the time.

Chances are at the time they never would have made it anything at all, because it would have been a he said, she said, case with everybody there having been drinking alcohol and most likely intoxicated. Since the people at the party were under 18, chances are if they were charged at all, the jeopardy they would have most likely faced would have been in relation to a minor in possession of alcohol related delinquent act.

Furthermore once those delinquents reached age 18 the relating juvenile records would have been sealed under State law and would not be made known to or made available to the FBI background investigators. Today the liberal Democrats have been pushing for adult criminal records of convicted violent criminals coming out of prison to be sealed so that employers will not know that prospective employees have violent adult criminal records.

But here the Democrats are trying to assassinate the character and reputation of this judge because of an unproven allegation relating to an decades old and unproven incident, even if proved true, would have been a juvenile delinquent act and not an adult crime where it is said to have occurred.

She´s not willing at all. Seems like she ought to be eager to save the day, but I´ll bet she´s unnerved to actually appear and answer questions. She knows -- they all know -- they´ve got nothing.

Does she even know she´s just a tool, easily discarded once she´s served her purpose? I wonder if her handlers promised her anonymity to "come forward," then found they couldn´t, and whether she´s enjoying her 15 minutes of fame.

Don’t be surprised if her leftist lawyer writes a letter to Senator Grassley at the last moment saying that the accuser has left the USA on a “preplanned” vacation, will not be back until after the midterm election, demanding that the hearing be continued until she gets back in the country and is comfortably prepared to testify.

Bernie Madoff’s Legacy: Whistleblower Inc.

Ten years ago, Bernard Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, the biggest fraud in U.S. history, shocked the financial world. It soon emerged that a forensic accountant, Harry Markopolos, had been alerting regulators for years to Mr. Madoff’s fraud, but no one had listened. At Mr. Markopolos’s urging, the Securities and Exchange Commission created a cash-for-tips program, designed to encourage reports of financial wrongdoing and prevent the lapses in oversight that gave Mr. Madoff free rein. Today, an entire industry is devoted to surfacing tips from company insiders and expert analysts who scrutinize corporate filings.

Robert Mueller looks to be approaching his endgame, and the press is alive with speculation as to how bad the special counsel’s report will be for President Trump. It’s also worth noticing how good Mr. Mueller has been to another president, Barack Obama, and his team. This benevolence was on display in the sentencing document the special counsel’s office filed on Tuesday for Mike Flynn. The former Trump national security adviser, we are told, has provided “substantial assistance,” sitting for 19 interviews that aided in “several ongoing investigations.” In light of this help, the Mueller team

Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have called out the pair. “I think the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State are in a bad spot because the president has given this bear hug to MBS and to the entire Saudi regime, so they are bound to carry out his bizarre policy,” Murphy said during a “Morning Joe” interview.

The Global Carbon Tax Revolt

France’s violent Yellow Vest protests are now about many domestic concerns, but it’s no accident that the trigger was a fuel-tax hike. Nothing reveals the disconnect between ordinary voters and an aloof political class more than carbon taxation. The fault line runs between anti-carbon policies and economic growth, and France is a test for the political future of emissions restrictions. France already is a relatively low-carbon economy, with per-capita emissions half Germany’s as of 2014. French governments have nonetheless pursued an “ecological transition” to further squeeze carbon emissions from every corner

Attorneys for President Trump asked a court Monday for nearly $800,000 in lawyers’ fees and penalties from adult-film actress Stormy Daniels for the failed defamation lawsuit against him. Attorney Charles Harder defended more than 500 hours his firm spent that rang up a nearly $390,000 legal bill for the president and asked for an equal amount in sanctions as a deterrent against a “repeat filer or frivolous defamation cases.” Harder said the fees and penalties were earned because of the extraordinary nature of the defamation case.

NeverTrump Clings To Russia Collusion
Conspiracy Theory Despite Lack Of Evidence
The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway    Original Article

The NeverTrump movement has gone from pushing allegations that Donald Trump treasonously colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election from its rightful owner Hillary Clinton, to pretending that his attempts at business deals in Russia, which were legal and the subject of widespread reporting during the election, are evidence of unspecified crimes. The main barrier to the Russia-Trump collusion theory — an information operation that was secretly bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, spread by a compliant media, and weaponized by the highest levels of federal agencies —

Thank you, President George H.W. Bush, for everything you did, but most of all for your greatest accomplishment: Keeping Michael S. Dukakis out of the White House in 1988. Getting dead, someone once observed, always does a lot for a person’s social standing.

Austin, Texas It would be hard to find a better example of left-wing naiveité in municipal affairs than what transpired here in November. Voters in the Lone Star State’s progressive bastion, overwhelmingly approved a $925 million bond package but rejected a simple ballot initiative for an independent audit of city spending. The defeat of the audit wouldn’t be so galling if the new bonds didn’t so obviously demonstrate the need for an independent review of Austin’s books. Spending in the Texas capital is more like what one would expect in some profligate California city. With this new bond package,

But Mr. Flake has said he will block all judicial nominees until he receives a vote on a bill that would insulate Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation from normal political accountability. The GOP’s one-seat majority on Judiciary means the party can’t report judges out of committee

The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court’s liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation’s largest abortion provider. “So what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?,” Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.

She has the seed money — there’s $12.5 million ready to go, left from her recent Senate run — and a massive email list she’s amassed over years, boosted by a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in the last election alone. Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move.
