´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.

A young mother who sustained severe brain injuries while ´tram surfing´ as a teenager has won £485,000 in compensation.

San Francisco - Cow´s milk is allegedly a symbol used by white supremacists, according to PETA. In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings." According to PETA, "some people might be surprised to learn that cows used by the dairy industry are slaughtered after about five years because their bodies are so spent from being kept constantly pregnant." (Snip) Peta links this concept to white supremacy by saying cows are controlled by humans, similar to the mindset of

President Donald Trump is poking fun at former Joe Biden on a day when both politicians were campaigning in Nevada for candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot. Trump was in rural Elko, Nevada, for a rally a short time after Biden appeared hundreds of mile south in Las Vegas. The president mocked the potential 2020 White House contender as ‘1 percent Joe’ - a reference to Biden’s low showing in earlier presidential runs. Trump said Barack Obama came along in 2008 and took Biden “off of the trash heap and made him vice president.” Trump boasted of the size of

Harvard University “rolled out the red carpet” for applicants with ties to influential donors, according to stunning emails revealed as part of a lawsuit that claims the school’s admissions process is discriminatory. The correspondences revealed Wednesday show that officials catered to certain recruits with upstanding pedigrees over others, including the student who received the royal treatment after his family gave $1.1 million over the course of four years. The men’s tennis coach fired off a thank-you email in 2014 to longtime admissions dean William Fitzsimmons, saying “it would mean a great deal” to see that student at Harvard.

The top U.S. general in Afghanistan barely escaped Thursday after a brazen attack during a high-level security meeting in Kandahar where Afghan guards turned their guns on American forces, claiming the lives of three top provincial officials. Afghan TV reported that members of the Kandahar province governor’s elite guards began firing on Americans and Afghan officials during the meeting, which included Gen. Scott Miller, the head of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan. Two American troops were wounded in the assault, while Afghan police Chief Abdul Raziq was killed. At least two other Afghan officials also were killed

President Trump threatened to mobilize the military and even close the border if Mexico fails to stop the thousands of migrants heading toward the United States. “I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!,” the president announced in a tweet on Thursday. In another posting, he continued to blast Democrats for being weak on immigration and repeated warnings that he would curb aid to the Central American countries that do not halt the caravan. “I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want

While other senators’ votes got more attention, perhaps the most curious “No” vote on Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh came from Sen. Doug Jones of Alabama, a Democrat who represents one of the reddest states in the country but has been voting, at times, like a New England liberal. After his surprise win in a special election in late 2017 some analysts had predicted Mr. Jones would join Sen. Joe Manchin III, West Virginia Democrat, as the chamber’s middle, backing Mr. Trump on some key disputes. But those occasions have been few, and more often Mr. Jones has sided with

Latina immigrants in New York City have seen a spike in premature births – an increase that researchers with the city’s health department say may be tied to the shock win by Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. The study released Wednesday by the health department and Harvard’s TH Chan School of Public Health compared births in the city in the months before Trump won the Republican presidential nomination, from September 2015 through July 2016, with births in the months after he was inaugurated, from January to August 2017. There was no change in babies born prematurely – or before 37

I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?” Sinema, who has come under fire recently for making derogatory comments about Arizona in newly resurfaced videos, also once described conservatives as “Neanderthals.”

The American bronze medalist who lost a world-championship cycling race to a transgender woman from Canada has criticized the results as unfair. "First transgender woman world champion...ever," Rachel McKinnon, an assistant professor of philosophy at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, bragged Sunday in a tweet that set off a massive debate. McKinnon gave a talk at the College of Charleston earlier this year asking: “Is it fair for transwomen athletes to compete in women’s categories?” While McKinnon argues it is, given the rules and regulations adopted by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Court of Arbitration for

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala — The Latest on a caravan of Central American migrants hoping to reach the United States (all times local): 4:30 p.m. The U.N. special investigator on the human rights of migrants has a message for the Mexican and U.S. governments: Respect the human rights of every person on the caravan heading from Central America and consider each case individually. Felipe Gonzalez Morales told a news conference at U.N. headquarters in New York on Friday that "there cannot be massive collective expulsions, for instance, in violation of international law." Some 3,000 migrants are currently trying to enter Mexico from Guatemala

The end of Robert Mueller’s investigation. The loss of health insurance for several million people. New laws that make it harder to vote. More tax cuts for the rich. More damage to the environment. A Republican Party molded even more in the image of President Trump. These are among the plausible consequences if the Republicans sweep the midterm elections and keep control of both the House and Senate. And don’t fool yourself. That outcome, although not the most likely one, remains possible. The last couple of weeks of polling have shown how it could happen.

The countdown is on for the arrival of what has come to be known as the “Honduran caravan” — an estimated 4,000 men, women, children and infants who left the troubled Honduran city of Pedro Sula last weekend on foot and by truck. Saturday will mark a week on the march for the throng of hopefuls who plan to assemble on the U.S.-Mexico border and demand entry. The caravan itself has become a complex political symbol that some observers say is yet another ploy by rival Democrats and a hostile news media to portray the president in a negative light

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, a growing throng of Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border early Sunday in southern Mexico. Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula, 10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile. It was not immediately clear where the additional travelers had materialized from since about 2,000 gathered on the Mexican side Saturday night. They seemed likely to be people who had been waiting on the bridge over the Suchiate

Saudi Arabia acknowledged late Friday that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, and claimed that he died in a fist fight. In a statement on Saudi state television, the government said 18 Saudi citizens have been detained pending the outcome of an investigation into the death of Mr. Khashoggi, a prominent government critic and legal U.S. resident. “Discussions between citizen Jamal Khashoggi and those who met him while he was in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul led to a brawl and a fist fight, which led to his death,” the statement said. “The investigations
