My Summary of the Entire Kavanaugh Extravaganza by The Elephant's Child

FB-090617-Chuck-Schumer

The Kavanaugh nomination continues to dominate the news. Democrat propaganda efforts have seen to that. I don’t know just who does their propaganda, but they have become quite good at it. If you recall, with the women’s march, the bellyaching by feminists that they don’t yet occupy all the really important positions in the country, and of course, the #Me-Too movement, sexual abuse has become a big prominent deal.

Federal Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been nominated to the Supreme Court. Senator Charles Schumer has spoken out to say essentially that no, we cannot have a conservative or a Republican appointed to the Supreme Court, because Democrats have to be in the majority and in charge. As the time for Kavanaugh’s hearing approaches, lo and behold, at almost the very last minute Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has a letter from a woman who claims that Brett Kavanaugh abused her when they were in high school 36 years ago. Senator Feinstein has had the letter since July, but just didn’t think of making it public until just before the Kavanaugh hearing, Purely a coincidence of course.

The woman is identified as Christine Basely Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University. She claims that at a party 36 years ago the high school boys were all drunk, Kavanaugh held her down and put his hand over her mouth, and she was very frightened. When was this? She can’t really remember. Well, where was this? She can’t remember where the party was. She can’t remember how she got home. Did she tell anyone? About 12 years ago when she and her husband were in couples counseling, she suddenly remembered and told the therapist. Palo Alto University is a college for psychology and counseling.

Chairman Grassley says they will arrange to hear her on Monday. She will not come on Monday. She wants the FBI to investigate the whole thing before she will testify, because she has received death threats and nasty calls. The FBI doesn’t do investigations to determine who is right in a he-said she-said argument. Women’s march feminists assume, with help from Democrat propagandists that she was raped, but she has never claimed that as far as can be determined. She says she won’t testify until she can be protected because she is very frightened — death threats. The question seems to be can she drag out the contretemps long enough to get the Kavanaugh  nomination dumped? Raise enough suspicions? Etc. Etc. Etc.

Kavanaugh is adamant that it never happened. His friend from high school also says it never happened. Many women who knew Kavanaugh in high school say Kavanaugh was always a perfect gentleman. Etc. Etc. Etc.

Hollywood celebrities, whose names I do not recognize, but I’m not very up-to-date, are quick to chime in and demand that Ford be given a hearing, #Me-Too, Etc. Etc. Etc. Why are we forced to listen to Hollywood celebrities who are famous because they once appeared on a screen somewhere, who know nothing whatsoever, but demand to be listened to because they once appeared on a screen somewhere? They have no claim to any expertise, they just like to sound off, and lazy reporters can just pick up what they said online.

That’s my best summary of what is happening. Let me know if my summary is haywire. The propaganda is skillful, the Democrats are deeply opposed to the Constitution and want it abolished, because it is a brake on their quest for control. They particularly hate the Electoral College, citizenship laws, free speech, the first and second amendments, and most of the rest of it as well. Obama used to say that the Constitution was wrong because it said what the government may not do, to the people, and it should have said what the government must do — for the people.

ADDENDUM: Here’s Breitbart’s timeline of events, far more comprehensive than mine. The Thursday date would apparently make it too late for Kavanaugh to be confirmed for the new court session, which begins October 1.   Democrats have again “suggested” that Clarence Thomas is a proven sexual predator, With the  Thursday date for testimony, the Democrats’ game is exposed. They are not nice people, and they play very dirty. And their goal is power and control.

Here’s Powerline’s list of Ms. Ford’s demands:

Citing “sources,” Fox News’ Shannon Bream reports on the demands Christine Blasey Ford and her legal team are making as a condition for her testifying about her allegations against Brett Kavanaugh:

Ford team wants NO questions from lawyers, only Qs from Committee members, #Kavanaugh cannot be in the room, Kavanaugh must testify FIRST – more to come …

These demands are absurd. No questions from lawyers? I guess Ford wants to be able to claim she’s being persecuted by an all-white-male panel. She doesn’t want a woman to examine her, which I imagine is what the Republicans have in mind.

ADDENDUM II

Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley (R-IA) set a final deadline today for Judge Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers to agree to have her testify at a hearing next week.  If Ford’s lawyers do not reach an agreement to one of the options they have been offered, Grassley will schedule a committee vote on Kavanaugh for Monday.

She first mentioned anything about it in 2012, not 12 years ago, during couple’s counseling.

They also were demanding FBI investigation before they claimed death-threats, IIRC online. It was the lawyer’s first response to being asked to testify, then there was the protection demand, and now there’s a big list of demands including that the guys from high school show up, and that they question K before she ever speaks to the committee.

Other than that and the motive– I think they want to delay the vote until after midterms so that the red-state Dems don’t have to explain voting “no”– about right, yeah.

Of course. Demanding that they question K first is profoundly silly. She is the one making accusations, to which he must respond, not the other way around. She is trying to order the United States Senate around! Not going to go over well.

Well…. that’s one side of it. Open your mind and take a look at the other.
