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.

This leftist dirty trick is growing beyond all proportion and needs to be halted. Vote on Tuesday. Judge Kavanaugh and his family deserve it. America deserves it.

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.

The red wolf was declared extinct in the wild in 1980, and while forty or so red wolves were captured, bred in captivity, and reintroduced into the wild in North Carolina in 1990, there have been mysterious unconfirmed reports of red wolf sightings scattered along the Texas Gulf Coast for decades. Those sightings were typically dismissed—scientists were certain coyotes were being mistaken for the elusive wolf. But now there’s some evidence indicating that red wolves may actually have a genetic presence along the coast in Texas. It all began with some roadkill.

Leslie Moonves to Pursue Arbitration for
His $120 Million Severance From CBS

Former CBS Corp. chairman-CEO Leslie Moonves will pursue an arbitration claim to fight CBS for the $120 million severance that he was denied last month when the company’s board of directors determined he was fired for cause. Moonves was ousted in September after multiple women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against the longtime industry leader. In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Thursday, CBS disclosed that Moonves has informed the company of his plan to take the board’s decision to arbitration. A spokesman for Moonves declined to comment. “On January 16, 2019, Mr. Moonves notified the Company of his election

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said they’d relocate the installation, which features the words “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet” in Arabic, after many felt its proximity to Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial was insulting and insensitive.

In the daily headlines, the government shutdown—now the longest in American history—is reported as a clash between two uncompromising forces: President Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi. In this battle, however, the most important general may be the one who’s escaped almost all notice. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has put on full display his penchant for knowing when the best course is to do nothing. In the received wisdom, because Mr. Trump infamously welcomed a shutdown in December’s televised and contentious Oval Office meeting with Mrs. Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, he gets all the blame for it.

Watch Willie Nelson and George

Willie Nelson’s list of musical collaborators is essentially a timeline of popular music. Frank Sinatra? Wynton Marsalis? Ray Charles? Julio Iglesias? Check, check, check, check. Norah Jones, Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, even Snoop Dogg? Yep. Basically every country star who ever passed through Nashville and stopped off in Texas? Of course. Yet somehow, during the course of his illustrious and highly collaborative career, there’s one epic name that Willie hadn’t added to his list: King George Strait, his fellow Texan great, whose stature rivals Willie’s when it comes to the names that have defined country music.

Women Don’t Belong in Combat Units
Wall Street Journal, by Heather MacDonald    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 1/14/2019 8:00:32     Post Reply
The Obama-era policy of integrating women into ground combat units is a misguided social experiment that threatens military readiness and wastes resources in the service of a political agenda. The next defense secretary should end it. In September 2015 the Marine Corps released a study comparing the performance of gender-integrated and male-only infantry units in simulated combat. The all-male teams greatly outperformed the integrated teams, whether on shooting, surmounting obstacles or evacuating casualties. Female Marines were injured at more than six times the rate of men during preliminary training—unsurprising, since men’s higher testosterone levels produce stronger bones and muscles.

Like Representative Rashida Tlaib, Bella Abzug was not one to mince words in the course of political combat. In 1973, as the murk of Watergate engulfed Richard Nixon, the feisty Democratic congresswoman from New York punched Speaker Carl Albert in the chest, in his account, and told him: “Get off your goddamned ass, and we can take this presidency!” As today, the Watergate era was a time of generational and stylistic change in the House of Representatives. Younger red-hot liberals saw impeachment as a necessary and urgent course of action, while wary elders viewed it

We have a couple of updates today. One about a movie. One about a museum. I told you recently that, based on his perusal of the script and glimpse at the trailer, local lawyer Harry Whittington had some concerns about “Vice,” the current unflattering movie about ex-Veep Dick Cheney. Whittington has some personal stake in the movie because he’s in the movie. He’s the local man who was shot by Cheney in a 2006 South Texas quail hunting accident. It’s a scene in the movie, and now that Whittington has seen the scene, he’s even more convinced it’s inaccurate.

Earl Scruggs revolutionized the way we play and appreciate the banjo today. Scruggs, who was born 95 years ago this month, developed his own three-finger method of picking the five-string banjo – an approach so radical it´s now widely referred to as "Scruggs style." That style, which features picks attached to the thumb, index finger and middle finger, has become a defining characteristic of bluegrass music and the most popular style of playing banjo in the genre. Google dedicated an animated Doodle to Scruggs on Friday, highlighting his finger-picking method, which helped elevate the status of the banjo

Anti-cop activist Shaun King says that his involvement in the campaign around the Jazmine Barnes murder was not driven by reports that a white man had killed the seven-year-old girl, who was gunned down in Houston on December 30. According to Barnes’s mother and 15-year-old sister, the white driver of a pickup truck had pulled up next to the family’s car before opening fire. The accusation set off a frenzy of hate-crime allegations and blanket coverage by the New York Times. King offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who located the suspect.

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay,

In recent days, many online essays have rightly ripped apart Gillette´s ugly new "We Believe" advertisement. One online critic dubbed it "feel-bad liberalism." (snip) "I guess the guy at the ad agency missed the lesson about not taking a dump on the people you want to buy your stuff," cracked comedian Steven Crowder. "The guy at the ad agency" is actually philosophically unpleasant feminist Kim Gehrig. Hiring her to court the male market is like expecting to accrue impressive rainbow flag sale numbers with spiels from Farrakhan.

PASCAGOULA, Miss.— A Mississippi man in declining health is telling a story he’s kept secret from his own family for 45 years: he claims he was abducted by aliens. Calvin Parker says he and his buddy Charles Hickson were fishing in 1973 on the banks of the Pascagoula River, just north of where Ingalls Shipyard now sits, when a “real bright beam appeared all over us and it kind of blinded me for a second and when I got my vision back, I seen three bulky looking creatures coming toward us.” Parker said the creatures were “probably 4, 4 1/2, 5 foot tall…built like football players. But I noticed they kind of moved mechanical wise

Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday asked President Donald Trump to reschedule his State of the Union address — or deliver it in writing — as long as the government remains shut down. "Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Wednesday night she “doesn’t care” if the Secret Service said it was prepared to appropriately secure the State of the Union address despite the partial government shutdown. Instead, she stood firm in her resolve to delay the January 29 event until the government completely re-opens. (Photo) In a letter to President Trump, Pelosi claimed the lack of funds to Homeland Security posed a risk to the White House and the Congress during the event, but the Department of Homeland Security Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen released a statement refuting that. She shared that statement in a

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.
