´Speaking truth to power´:
Christine Blasey Ford nominated
for UNC Distinguished Alumna Award

Washington Times, by Victor Morton

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/10/2018 9:53:28 AM

Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser has been nominated by her alma mater for its distinguished alumna award for “speaking truth to power.” According to a report in CNN, Christine Blasey Ford is being pushed for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Distinguished Alumna Award because she was “speaking truth to power” when she publicly accused then-Judge Kavanaugh of sexual assault. Jennifer Ho, a professor of English at UNC, stated in her letter nominating Ms. Blasey Ford that her testimony “was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was: she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced

Comments:
The aptly named Prof. Jennifer Ho found a way to further damage the UNC brand. Ho here says the disproved molestation was real; should she be liable for libel?

Dear God! An award for lying. Yet another example of the ethical and cultural wasteland that is modern academia.

Have a look at the article by Steve Sailer posted just above this one.

The spirit of the age cries out for tales of victimization, and, unsurprisingly, the supply has grown to meet the skyrocketing demand. What does it say about our culture that we just witnessed a professor of psychology be vastly praised for testifying to a purported chain of events without any additional evidence emerging that it wasn’t all just in her head?

She LIED!!!!! Her lies almost cost an "evil white conservative male" a seat on the Supreme Court!!!!!! That is taking the theory of the LIE-beral Mantra "the ENDS always justify the MEANS!!!!!" to it´s highest level!!!! Since this allows LIE-berals to lie, cheat, steal, and even kill, to get and keep power, she is the perfect LIE-beral!!!!!

The woman is a STONE COLD LIAR who perjured herself for the sake of her demented democratic ideology. She and the others such as Watters,Shumer, et al make me sick to my stomach. I am ashamed to be an American if they can also be designated Americans. This bloated specimen concocted a smear designed to at the very least delay the filling of a Supreme Court vacancy until the next election and at most, scuttle the nomination all together. She did not do it alone. These liberals are every bit as bad as the Bolshevics. It´s hard to stop people who have no limit to their indecency.

The Obamas´ best friend Valerie Jarrett has dished about spending her evenings relaxing and gossiping with Michelle and Barack on the Truman Balcony at the White House and her unfettered access to the former president and first lady in her upcoming memoir.

A petition drive to win support to paint the Walt Whitman Bridge the multi-colors of the gay pride flag has been launched on social media. The petition was posted on Change.org with a goal of tallying 1,000 signatures. The 2-mile bridge connects Gloucester City, just south of Camden, with Philadelphia, and was opened in 1957. It is named for Walt Whitman, widely considered one of the most influential American poets. Whitman is also celebrated for prose about the beauty of the human body and his love for men which is depicted in some of his best-known works,

A dine-and-dash by wig-wearing Applebee’s customers in Clifton on Wednesday led to a high-speed chase through three counties after a cop investigating the theft got dragged 50 feet by a car, authorities said. The chase began about 6:30 p.m. after police were called to the Applebee’s in Clifton Commons on Route 3 East about a theft of services, according to police. Workers told police two women and two men ordered food at the restaurant and left without paying, authorities said. (Snip) An Applebee’s employee ran after them and grabbed one of the men not far

Now they cage him. A violent thug who’d been bailed out by a nonprofit—only to viciously choke and sexually violate a young woman in the Bronx a week after he was sprung—will stay behind bars for the next 18 years under a plea deal he took Wednesday. Lynneke Burris, 30, of Brooklyn, already had a lengthy rap sheet, including for violent muggings, and had been jailed on a new assault charge when The Bronx Freedom Fund posted his $1,000 bail on April 5.

Gillette´s controversial new ad tackling toxic masculinity has gotten mixed reviews, but even fans of the message are baffled to see the company discouraging sexism while continuing to charge more for its female shaving products. Known as the ´pink tax,´ the common form of gender-based price discrimination involves women being charged premium prices for items specifically marketed towards women while men pay less for virtually the same product.(Snip) One woman tweeted screengrabs from Target´s website to show that a refill pack of blades for one of Gillette´s popular women´s razors costs $2.50 more than its male counterpart.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham delivered a forceful statement Wednesday faulting President Trump for having ´set in motion´ enthusiasm by the enemy in Syria that resulted in the deadly attack there that killed U.S. forces. Graham´s dramatic statement associating Trump´s words with the bloody attack that killed Americans came from a loyalist who has golfed frequently with the president, although he has also tried to the president out of a policy he has called dangerous to Americans. Graham was among the most forceful GOP critics of Trump when he declared victory against ISIS last month and announced the U.S. would withdraw troops.

A third of United Nations employees reported experiencing sexual harassment at the agency within the last two years, according to an explosive survey released on Tuesday. According to the findings, some 33 percent of respondents reported at least one instance of sexual harassment in that time, but the figure rose to nearly 40 percent when they were asked about their entire career at the UN. Instances of sexual harassment included offensive jokes or stories, or inappropriate remarks about someone’s appearance or sexual activities. Other employees said they had been the victims of unwanted gestures or touching.

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,

On Thursday afternoon, President Trump informed Speaker Pelosi her “public relations” trip to Afghanistan, Egypt, and Brussels has been postponed so that she can stay in DC and negotiate with him. The President canceled Pelosi’s flight just one hour before she was scheduled to depart — Pelosi and other lawmakers were on the bus en route to the airport.
