The Democratic Party: The Party Without Ideas, Morals, and Principles

democratic party - bad people

by Diane Rufino, January 19, 2019

Democrats used to be the party of Bad Ideas. Now it’s the party of Bad People.

If you don’t believe me, let’s just take a look at some of the leaders, new representatives, movements, and individuals that call themselves “Democrats.”

Barack Obama – the great Divider-in-Chief.  He left the country far more racially-divided than he found it in 2008. Five months after he took office in 2009, he couldn’t help but comment on a news story he saw – where a black Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates, was arrested for trying to break into his own house. Without knowing the facts, President Obama commented at a prime time press conference: “”I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that [Gates case]. But I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home; and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. That’s just a fact.”   The facts were that the police acted in full accordance with proper procedure, and that it was Gates itself who obstructed the police by accusing them of being racist by asking for proof that he in fact lived at the residence and then refusing to show identification. The Cambridge Police Department insisted that Obama apologize for casting the officer, the department, and the police in general, in a disparaging and racist light, which he did.  The impact and fall-out couldn’t have been worse – the beginning of the Black Lives Matter.  Obama made things worse when again, without knowing the facts (because the mainstream media wasn’t providing the facts), he took the side of Travon Martin in the Travon Martin – Zimmerman incident (resulting in Martin’s shooting death). We all remember how the media kept showing a young, sweet-faced, innocent-looking grade school age Travon, which prompted Obama to comment: “He could be my son.” The reality was that Travon was a big, thug-looking, drug-taking high school student who was prone to violence and in fact, had been expelled or suspended from school because of it. It was he who sought out Zimmerman that fateful night, beating him to a bloody pulp, breaking his nose and causing blood to fill his lungs, which caused him to find his gun and shoot Travon in self-defense. Again, the real facts were ignored by Obama. And the Black Lives Matter Movement became stronger and stronger, and more violent. Many police lives were taken for no other reason than the Black Lives Matter movement inspired the killings. And race relations took two generations backwards. I’m not suggesting that Barack Obama did anything intentional, but his actions were reckless and he should have anticipated the violent response by black communities.

Bill and Hillary Clinton – serial criminals. They haven’t encountered a law they haven’t broken, and in the case of Bill, there isn’t a woman he’s encountered that he hasn’t tried to have sex with or wanted to have sexual relations with. As Secretary of State, Hillary used her position to enrich herself, her husband, and her foundation in order to prepare for her presidential campaign.  She engaged in a “pay-to-play scheme where she promised foreign leaders, foreign companies, global players favors with the US government and with our laws in return for personal (financial) aggrandizement. She arranged to sell Russia most of our Uranium in return for speaking engagements and huge donations to the Clinton Foundations. In other words, she sold out American interests for Clinton interests.  Bill and Hillary are the quintessential political elite – believing they are better, smarter, and above the law. In 2016, Hillary honestly believed she was entitled to the presidency, and she probably continues to believe that.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer – the chief obstructionists in government. Pelosi, as House Speaker, is commandeering that chamber to obstruct Trump in every way, shape, and form (simply because he won the presidency, frustrating Democrats’ plans to continue control of the government, the Swamp, and the Deep State). And Schumer, the cry-baby of the Senate, is commandeering that chamber against Trump. They had the nerve, in their rebuttal to President Trump’s appeal to the American people from the Oval Office, to accuse him of trying to get support for his wall by creating fear through a “manufactured crisis” at the southern border. After all the deaths at the hands of illegals, after all the seizures of deadly drugs crossing the border (fentanyl being the worse), after the increase in the brutal MS-13 gang activity (comprised almost entirely of illegals), after data showing an alarming amount of human trafficking across the border, and after the caravan fiasco and a 37% increase in aliens flooding over the border illegals, Pelosi and Schumer had the nerve to dismiss the situation at the border as nothing more than a “manufactured crisis.” They called the wall immoral, yet themselves live in gated, walled communities. They enjoy the security provided by a wall in their own lives, but believe the American people should not be entitled to that in their lives. When a reporter scaled the wall to Pelosi’s house, the House Speaker had her arrested; I guess, the reporter wasn’t entitled to the sanctuary provided by Pelosi’s property. When Angel Mom’s visited Pelosi’s office and Schumer’s office, they refused to meet with them. To me, that is immoral.

Rep. Maxine Waters –  or better known as “Mad Max.”  Maxine is the “non-thinker’s representative.” She encouraged supporters to harass Trump administration officials whenever and wherever they find them. “Make them feel like they don’t belong.”  Imagine telling a group of Americans – taxpayers – that they don’t belong in the country they pledge allegiance too. Of course, Democrats were all-too happy to oblige and harass our government officials in their private time, with their families, at restaurants, at movies, etc. Aside from her antics, her dishonorable conduct, and being voted the most corrupt member of the US Congress for many years, she is a notorious race-baiter and race hustler.

Rep. Roshida Tlaib – the new Muslim representative from Michigan. After taking the oath of office, she told her supporters: “We will impeach the Mother F***er!”  Tlaib not only has no understanding of the US Constitution (for nowhere in it are members of Congress given the authority to impeach a president simply because they don’t like him), but she hopes one day to see the total destruction of Israel.

Rep. Alexandria Cortez-Ocasio – the new representative from New York. She is another “non-thinker’s representative.”  Cortez-Ocasio is not only a dull-brained, uninformed, unprepared representative, she is also an avowed socialist who believes the government should provide everybody everything for free. (She apparently is unaware of the studies of Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven who predicted, back in 1966, that one day, welfare alone will overwhelm our system and cause it to crash).  But she is photogenic and loves the camera.

Senator Elizabeth Warren – aka, “Pocahontas.”  Warren lied about her heritage, claiming she has Indian blood in her, in order to take advantage of the affirmative action hiring benefit for the protected minority group. It is one thing to lie but another, far worse thing, to misappropriate an opportunity that has been set aside for someone who has actually been the victim of past discrimination or the victim of policies that at one time put a group of people at a great disadvantage for social equality. And that is what Warren did. The path of that gross misappropriation put her on a path that ultimately put her in the position to run for the US Senate.

Senator Cory Booker – aka, “Spartacus.”  As a member of the Black Caucus, he is a race-baiter and was one of the members of the Senate who helped turn the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court Confirmation Hearings into a circus and to bring dishonor to the body in general. At the Hearing, he was going to put everything at risk, he said, even his place in the US Senate, and break the rules. He would release confidential documents that he believed would expose Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh as a supporter of racial profiling. Oh how excited he was. He was flushed with pride at being able to have such a moment – his “Spartacus moment.”  Who can forget what he said, and with a straight face too: “This is about the closest I’ll probably ever have in my life to an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment.”  Rather than being a dramatic moment, one that would be the revelation to tank Kavanaugh’s chances of confirmation, it ended up being nothing more than a cheap publicity stunt (and a great source for some pretty funny political memes!!)

Senator Dick Durbin – He admitted to plotting, along with Richard Blumenthal and other Democrats, to disrupt the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. He sided with Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault without any corroborating witnesses or without any evidence, and his line of questioning reflected that. In fact, even though Kavanaugh proclaimed his innocence in the alleged incident, provided what seemed to be an air-tight alibi (with the calendar/diary he kept during the alleged time period), and had already been screened by the FBI at least 5-6 times already, he called for an FBI investigation into Ford’s allegations.

Senator Richard Blumenthal – a particularly slimy Democrat. Like Durbin, he admitted to plotting to disrupt the Kavanaugh hearing, and like Durbin, he took Ford’s side in the matter of her allegations of sexual assault.  Blumenthal had the audacity to lecture the honorable, squeaky-clean Supreme Court nominee on the implications of telling even a single lie, when he himself had not been truthful as a public servant. For 15 years, he claimed not only that he served in the Vietnam War, but that he served in the notorious Da Nang province, which was where some of the bloodiest fighting took place. He did not serve in the Vietnam War. In fact, he requested 5 times to defer service. It was this lie that prompted President Trump to nickname him “Da Nang Dick.”  That name appears to be so true on many levels.

Senator Dianne Feinstein – cunning as she is ignorant of what is protected by the Second Amendment.  Feinstein intentionally withheld information about Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her back in college in order to release the accusation at the most opportune moment during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. She held onto a letter that Ford had written, not sharing it, and most importantly, not putting Ford in contact with law enforcement or lawyers who could address her claims; her interest was making sure that the revelations in the letter did maximum damage to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s chances of being confirmed to the Supreme Court. She had no concern for the American principle that a man is presumed innocent until proven guilty and she had no qualms about destroying the reputation and character of a loving family man, model citizen, and honorable public servant. She put the politics of personal destruction over her duty to be honorable in reviewing a nominee to the Supreme Court. Most recently, she introduced legislation to ban 205 different weapons. (Many other Democratic senators co-sponsored, including Senators Dick Durbin, Chuck Schumer, Bob Menendez, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris)

Senator Bob Menendez – from New Jersey, who was indicted on a slew of federal corruption charges.

Keith Ellison – former US congressman from Minnesota (2007-2019) and now, the state’s Attorney General. He was a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and another race-baiter in Congress. In 2006, during his first run for Congress, Ellison admitted that he had worked with the notorious anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, for 18 months leading up to the October 1995 Million Man March. In 2005, a picture emerged of then Senator Barack Obama and then Rep. Ellison with Farrakhan. Apparently, members of the Black Caucus met with the controversial leader. Ellison has denied any contact with Farrakhan since 1995 and has denounced the Nation of Islam, yet the 2005 photo would suggest otherwise. And then in 2013, more evidence arose to show that he again met with Farrakhan.

Black Lives Matter Movement – a movement originating in the African-American community, which for all intents and purposes, implicates Democrats. The movement was intended to campaign against police brutality and alleged systemic racism against blacks. In 2014, after the deaths of two African Americans, Michael Brown (resulting in protests, riots, and unrest in Ferguson) and Eric Garner in New York City, protesters marched down Fifth Avenue in New York City, led by the so-called Reverend Al Sharpton in support of the growing “Black Lives Matter” movement. They chanted: “What Do We Want?  — Dead Cops.  When do we want it?  — Now!”  A few months later, retaliation against law enforcement began.  On December 20, 2014, NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were targeted and shot in their vehicle in Brooklyn. The following year, additional officers were targeted and killed, for no other reason than they wore a blue uniform.

Hollywood specifically, and the Entertainment Industry in general –  Actors, actresses, singers and other musicians, comedians, and talk show hosts such as Kathy Griffin, Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep, Jimmy Kimmel, Rosie O’Donnell, Peter Fonda, Chelsea Handler, Michelle Wolf, Samantha Bee, Cher, Richard Gere, Sarah Silverman, Tom Hanks, Ashley Judd, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, John Legend, Jay-Z, Snoop Dog, Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Morello, Jennifer Lawrence, Stephen King, Louis C.K., Miley Cyrus, George Clooney, Stephen Colbert, Jim Carrey, Pete Davidson (SNL), and others I can’t think of off the top of my head use their celebrity, take to social media, and misuse the many platforms open to them to make hateful and vile comments about President Trump, his family, and members of his administration. Kathy Griffin posed happily with a fake severed and bloody head of Donald Trump. Others have expressed hope that members of his family would get raped. These are sick and demented human beings who have no decency. They are clearly pre-occupied with sex, sex acts, orifices, and rape.

Democratic Voters – in general Democrats elect representatives who will pursue policies of government plunder and wealth redistribution. They enjoy confiscating money and property from the wealthy in order that its confiscation will enrich them and will further social policies to keep voters tied to the Democratic Party. They willingly ignore God’s commandment that reads “Thou Shalt Not Covet,” and because they rarely earn the money that the government takes in in tax revenue, they spent it recklessly and without regard to actual necessity.  Interestingly, while they demand equality of the laws in every other aspect of existence, they have no problem depriving such to the wealthy, joyously and energetically demanding that the rich (and the government decides who is “rich enough”) be disproportionately (greatly, too) taxed.  The problem with Democrats, in a nutshell, is that they have no problem and no limits when it comes to taking money from others and spending other peoples’ money.

And so…   Yes, Democrats are bad for the image of our country and for decent, honorable, patriotic Americans. And they are simply bad for our country.

Of course this article is not meant to suggest that there aren’t some Republicans who can’t be accused of less than honorable conduct, but there is nothing on the right that runs so foul of decent conduct and on such a widescale basis as on the left.

The Politics of Character Assassination and Personal Destruction: Evidence that Evil Has Co-opted the Democratic Party

U.S. Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh testifies before a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington

(credit:  Reuters photo)

by Diane Rufino, October 8, 2018

Judge Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as the 114th associate justice to the Supreme Court on Saturday, October 6. It almost didn’t happen. And if everything went the way Democrats planned, it wouldn’t have.

According to Christine Blasey Ford (“Christina Ford”), thirty-six years ago, when she was only 15, she was assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh at a party. He was 17 at the time. She made a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee explaining her account, but putting her theatrics aside, her naivete, her confusion and timidness and her frequent consults with her many attorneys, the truth is that she presented no evidence, no details, and no witnesses. She apparently only told one person – her husband, Russell Ford. She told him “He could become a justice of the Supreme Court someday.” She said her husband remembered that she said her attacker was Brett Kavanaugh, but she herself doesn’t remember telling him that. She never told her account to anyone else until May 2012, during a couples counseling session. Again, no details were given.

Until July 2018, Ford had never named Brett Kavanaugh as her attacker outside of therapy. In early July 2018, she saw press reports stating that he was on the “short list” of potential Supreme Court nominees and decided to tell her story.  She called her congresswoman, Anna Eshoo (D- Palo Alto) and left a message with her receptionist that someone on the president’s short list of judicial nominees had attacked her. On July 9, after Kavanaugh had become the nominee, Ford received a call from the office of Rep. Eshoo and she proceeded to meet on two occasions with her staff (July 11 and July 13). She mentioned sending a letter to ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein.  In fact, Rep. Eshoo’s office delivered a copy of my letter to Sen. Feinstein’s office on July 30, 2018. The letter included Ford’s name, but she requested that the letter be kept confidential until she had a chance to speak with her in person. Apparently, Senator Feinstein sent a letter in response confirming that she would keep it temporarily in confidence. [I included a copy of that letter at the end of this article]

The rest is history.

Christine Blasey Ford thought not to contact any authorities about her allegations but rather, her first instinct was to get it to Democratic politicians so they could use it to disgrace President Trump’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Judge Kavanaugh and to impugn his character. For thirty-six years, she essentially kept her accusations to herself until the 11th hour, when Kavanaugh made it through to be the president’s choice for the high court. Feinstein sat on that letter and that information until after Kavanaugh did far better in his confirmation hearings than Democrats hoped – when it looked like he would indeed be confirmed.

To be clear about the accusations made by Ford against Brett Kavanaugh:  The one person Ford said was at the party in question not only denied that she was there, but went on to sign a sworn statement, under penalty of perjury, that she: (i) never once met Kavanaugh; (ii) was not at the party; and (iii) the party Ford addressed in her accusations never happened. In fact, she said, Ford’s allegations came as a shock to her. On the other hand, Brett Kavanaugh brought to the Committee a journal that he meticulously kept to document his life (just as his father had done) which provided an air-tight alibi for his whereabouts on the possible evenings of the party.

Ignoring the evidence, Democrats concluded that just because Ms. Ford made accusations of possible sexual misconduct, she must be believed and Kavanaugh must be the attacker. And then when he passionately and forcefully defended his whereabouts, his reputation, and his good name, Democrats went after him again claiming he is an angry man who doesn’t possess the temperament necessary for an associate justice of the Supreme Court.  The made a mockery and a circus out of the Confirmation Hearings.

Let’s face it, no one expected the Democrats to make it easy for Trump to have Kavanaugh confirmed. Senator Chuck Schumer even said as much in a tweet he made moments after Trump announced him as his pick to replace Justice Kennedy, on July 9.  Schumer tweeted: “I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same.”  Schumer, who apparently was spearheading the resistance against Kavanaugh, also was the one who sent out emails to fellow Democrats the night before the confirmation hearings began and who orchestrated to have all those annoying screaming protesters show up to disrupt the proceedings.

As bad as outright partisan delay and obstruction tactics are, which we have seen from the very first day Trump stepped into the White House, I and most Americans are far more concerned with something far more serious — which is the Democrats’ policy of PERSONAL DESTRUCTION and CHARACTER ASSASSINATION when it comes to Republican candidates and judicial nominees.  They spread lies and make up allegations of sexual harassment, without conscience and without impunity…. Why do they do it???  — Because it works.  It almost worked to keep Judge Kavanaugh off the bench. It already worked to make sure law schools won’t hire him. Harvard already announced that he is not welcome back. The politics of PERSONAL DESTRUCTION is something the Democrats have become good at. The politics of spreading lies and instilling fear (including a return to Jim Crow or a return to back alley abortions) is something Democrats are good at. Look what they did to Judge Roy Moore. (You don’t hear anything any more about his accuser). Look what happened to Mitt Romney in 2012 when he ran for president. During that election, Senator Harry Reid accused Mitt Romney, FALSELY, of not paying his taxes in over 10 years. He knew it wasn’t true. After the election, when confronted about his lie and whether he felt remorse for stooping so low, he said no. His response epitomized what the Democratic Party’s politics of personal destruction would become: “It worked didn’t it? He lost, didn’t he?”

The writer for the Stephen Colbert show, Ariel Dumas, tweeted during the Senate vote on Saturday: “Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life.”

The writer’s name should forever be changed to Ariel Dumb-ass.

MSNBC host Mika Brzezkinski mocked Kavanaugh, saying he “raged” and “cried like a baby” while defending himself. This jubilation and mocking of a good and decent man, blemished by unverified accusations, humiliated before all of the country and the world, and fighting to save a reputation he spent an entire life building, is similar to the jihadists celebrating the deaths of thousands of innocent Americans in the wake of 9/11. It says more about who THEY are – the Democrats, the main-stream media, the Hollywood and entertainment industry – than who Brett Kavanaugh is.

These Democrats are not good people. They are not decent people. They are certainly not the kind of people that should be given any power over others. These are people co-opted by the devil; commissioned to do evil.

Remember what Judge Kavanaugh said in his remarks addressing Ford’s accusations?  He said: “I’m never going to get my reputation back. My life is totally and permanently altered.” Later, during that same hearing, an angry Sen. Lindsey Graham told his Democratic colleagues, “You don’t want to find out the truth.  What you want is to destroy this guy’s life.”

The sad thing is that those Democratic Senators, the ones so willing to condemn Kavanaugh merely because Ford made an unverified accusation against him, took an OATH to the US Constitution, which guarantees to each US citizen the right to be presumed innocent, the right to confront his or her accuser, the right to a fair trial by members of his peers. They ignored their oaths and betrayed their allegiance to the Constitution in denying Kavanaugh his fundamental liberty rights. These Democratic Senators are political terrorists and are unfit to serve in government. Their choice of terror is character assassination.

One of the tricks Democrats and other liberals love most is taking something that is as  universally despised as possible, like rape, racism, or police shooting innocent people, and then declaring that they are against it while Republicans are indifferent to it.

  • “You’re against disrespecting the flag?” Then you must want black men to be shot by the police!
  • “You’re not in favor of tearing down historical statues because the owners had slaves?” Then you must hate black people! You must believe slavery was OK.
  • “You don’t believe EVERY rape accusation made against a man?” Then you must be pro-rape or think that women are to be sexualized.

We have Congresswomen, like Mad Maxine Waters, who go around telling people to harass members of Trumps’ team and Trump supporters. “Tell them they aren’t welcome here.” What an unconscionable message to send. What an unconscionable tactic.

These people are taxpayers and citizens of this country; they are entitled to feel comfortable and welcome in their own country.

The actions of Maxine Waters and the obstructionist, duplicitous, actions in general of the Democratic members of government are deeply troubling and let me tell you why…

Government is supposed to be the governing body for the People. It is the creation of the Constitution, adopted by the People, organized in State Conventions. Government serves the States and the People. That’s its sole function. It is NOT to serve itself or a Political Party.

Years ago, before our Revolution, when people were dis-satisfied with their royal governor or with the King and Parliament, they protested; they petitioned, they engaged in peaceful acts of civil disobedience, designed to frustrate or scare those enforcing government policy. The point is that when government is not serving the people as legally authorized to do, it is the PEOPLE who organize and carry out the protests. That is how they put pressure on their government. In our present case, it is GOVERNMENT who is organizing and encouraging the protests – for government’s interests only.  Not for the people’s interests.  What we have now is a Political Party doing anything and everything it can to cause civil and national unrest because it believes it is entitled to the control of government. They absolutely can’t stand the fact that Donald Trump won. And they absolutely refuse to accept it.

If the people want the government to continue to be a GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, and FOR THE PEOPLE, the People are going to have to fight for it and defend it. Otherwise, it will become a Government of the Democratic Party, by the Democratic Party (and its band of indoctrinated useless idiots), for the Democratic Party.

This is the state of our government in DC right now —  It’s no longer the seat of government. It is a battlefield. Democrats feel entitled to power in DC and the election of Donald Trump in 2016 threw them for a loop. That is why we have the insurance policy known as the Russian Collusion scandal; That is why we have talk of instability and impeachment; that is why Democrats have adopted the tactic of Personal Destruction…..

We cannot be fooled by these desperate acts of a desperate political party. We can’t give into their despicable tactics.  We can never, ever allow such vile, uncivil, unethical, morally bankrupt people to control government.  We need to keep their kind off our courts.  We need to talk to our friends and neighbors and family members. We need to get conservatives out to vote. We need to support the #WalkAway movement.  We also need to get those who ordinarily may not be conservative to get out and vote Republican –  to prevent to stop the advancement of the Democratic Party agenda of national destruction.

The tactics employed by the Democratic Party are evil. This conduct, this blackening of the heart, this outright hatred against fellow Americans, this campaign of character assassination, the silencing of speech, the gestapo tactics of fear and violence is not who we are as Americans. It sickens us. It tarnishes our good name and reputation as countrymen. It cheapens our republic. And it must be STOPPED.

As Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA tweeted: “The sooner conservatives realize that the left will do absolutely anything to win – they will lie, cheat, steal, slander, falsify, attack, demagogue, insult, protest, malign, fabricate, make false accusation, and organize – the sooner we will realized that they will not give us our country back. We must fight for it.”

 

APPENDIX:   Christine Blasey-Ford’s Letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein

July 30 2018

CONFIDENTIAL

Senator Dianne Feinstein

Dear Senator Feinstein;

I am writing with information relevant in evaluating the current nominee to the Supreme Court.

As a constituent, I expect that you will maintain this as confidential until we have further opportunity to speak.

Brett Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted me during high school in the early 1980’s. He conducted these acts with the assistance of REDACTED.

Both were one to two years older than me and students at a local private school.

The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and four others.

Kavanaugh physically pushed me into a bedroom as I was headed for a bathroom up a short stair well from the living room. They locked the door and played loud music precluding any successful attempt to yell for help.

Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with REDACTED, who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh. They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state. With Kavanaugh’s hand over my mouth I feared he may inadvertently kill me.

From across the room a very drunken REDACTED said mixed words to Kavanaugh ranging from “go for it” to “stop.”

At one point when REDACTED jumped onto the bed the weight on me was substantial. The pile toppled, and the two scrapped with each other. After a few attempts to get away, I was able to take this opportune moment to get up and run across to a hallway bathroom. I locked the bathroom door behind me. Both loudly stumbled down the stair well at which point other persons at the house were talking with them. I exited the bathroom, ran outside of the house and went home.

I have not knowingly seen Kavanaugh since the assault. I did see REDACTED once at the REDACTED where he was extremely uncomfortable seeing me.

I have received medical treatment regarding the assault. On July 6 I notified my local government representative to ask them how to proceed with sharing this information . It is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizen about the idea of not saying anything.

I am available to speak further should you wish to discuss. I am currently REDACTED and will be in REDACTED.

In confidence, REDACTED.

The Feinstein/Ford Blockade: Chronology, Testimony, and Hypocrisy

MEME - Dianne Feinstein (Put her under oath)

by Mark Alexander, PATRIOT POST, October 3, 2018

https://patriotpost.us/alexander/58633-the-feinstein-slash-ford-blockade-chronology-testimony-and-hypocrisy?mailing_id=3774&utm_medium=email&utm_source=pp.email.3774&utm_campaign=alexander&utm_content=header

 

This has NEVER been about finding the truth but about creating unjust and inexcusable political optics.

An allegation standing alone is not necessarily sufficient to conclude that conduct occurred.”

That was the conclusion of the Democrat attorney hired to investigate domestic-violence allegations against DNC Deputy Chairman, aspiring Minnesota Attorney General, and Rep. Keith Ellison. His victim had medical records and a police report associated with her charges, and had discussed the alleged assault with others. Additionally, there is at least one other assault allegation against Ellison noted in a 2005 police report by another woman.

These charges are more serious, more recent, better documented, and more suggestive of a pattern of abuse than the unsupported, unsubstantiated, uncorroborated, and in fact refuted allegations that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh groped another teenager 36 years ago.

But Ellison’s defenders incessantly remind us that the allegations against Ellison could be false, especially the lawyer who cleared him — whose firm has given more than $500,000 to Democrat candidates.

Again, “An allegation standing alone is not necessarily sufficient to conclude that conduct occurred.”

Of course, nothing close to that assertion, or its inherent assumption of innocence (a foundational standard of constitutional Rule of Law), entered the rhetorical lexicon of Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats in their “search and destroy” mission against Judge Kavanaugh. That charade, scripted by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), disgracefully used a distressed woman with conflicted memories, Christine Ford, as a political pawn. Feinstein seems to have achieved the optics Democrats were after, enraging their largest voter constituency, women, whom Demos treat like emotionally incontinent dupes.

As was their plan, Ford became the poster proxy for women who have had regrettable sexual encounters — from sexual harassment in the workplace, to encounters resulting from alcohol- or drug-impaired cognitive ability, to victimization by violent sexual assault. For women who have experienced an encounter anywhere on this spectrum, Ford embodies their collective anger, grief, and desire for justice, regardless of whether Ford’s allegations are true.

Conversely, Judge Kavanaugh became the poster proxy for every man who has ever offended a woman, from street-side cat-callers to serial rapists. As Democrats estimated, blocking the Kavanaugh nomination has become the proxy path to achieve a sense of collective “justice.” Never mind the end-justifies-the-means standard of “justice” they seek, which is the same sort of injustice upon which totalitarian regimes are built and sustained.

In January of this year, I wrote in “The Democrats’ 2018 Midterm Election Strategy” that they were “going to make the #MeToo ‘epidemic of sexual assault’ the centerpiece of their 2018 and 2020 elections.” Feinstein’s timing of the Kavanaugh derailment was a setup for the upcoming midterm elections, manufactured to energize enough women voters to carry Democrats to victory, particularly in those states where Donald Trump won majorities in 2016.

Recall that in the scheduled hearings for Judge Kavanaugh, when hordes of leftists were disrupting the Senate committee chamber and hallways, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) declared: “Why [are these protests] happening for the first time in the history of this committee? … You are the nominee of President Donald John Trump.”

Monday marked the beginning of a new Supreme Court term — without Kavanaugh.

Well played, Feinstein.

As place markers for the Democrats’ metastasizing investigation into Kavanaugh and their assault on our Constitution, what follows are three summaries of Feinstein’s ruse. First, a chronology of how Feinstein scripted the events. Second, a list of significant problems with Ford’s testimony. And last, a look at the hypocrisy of Kavanaugh’s accusers on the Judiciary Committee.

THE FEINSTEIN / FORD TIMELINE —

To review, the objective of Feinstein’s script to derail Kavanaugh was, and remains, to influence the midterm elections (particularly to flip the Senate, which would then make it difficult for Trump to nominate another SCOTUS candidate before the next Congress is seated in January, but also to flip committee control in the House, which would then bring to a screeching halt the investigation of the corrupt investigators in the phony Trump-Russia-collusion probe). To that end, despite the deal that committee Demos cut with Sen. Jeff Flake (?-AZ) last Thursday for a now-seventh FBI investigation of Kavanaugh that would be “limited in time and scope, to the current allegations … and limited in time to no more than one week,” Feinstein predictably declared Tuesday, “I believe it’s too soon. … We have to put all the facts together.”

This timeline of the Feinstein/Ford collusion to derail Kavanaugh is based on the Judiciary Committee chronology and other investigative sources.

On July 30, Feinstein says she received a draft of a letter from Christine Blasey Ford with allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. It had previously been sent to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA).

It was not until after the conclusion of the 4-7 September confirmation hearings that the allegations against Kavanaugh were leaked to the mainstream media, without disclosing Ford’s name.

Feinstein did not make the Ford letter known to Republicans on the committee until almost a week after the close of the Kavanaugh hearings on September 7. She claims the committee Democrats had only learned of it the day before.

On September 13, Feinstein advised committee chairman Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) of the letter’s existence without naming Ford, and she sent a copy of the letter to the FBI. According to Feinstein’s script, she told the media, “I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.”

Of course, this feigned desire to remain anonymous was meant to give Ford credibility and to suggest that she and Feinstein had no political motive. But it’s highly likely that Feinstein’s staff arranged for the contents of the letter to be “leaked,” and that is a matter the FBI should take up.

On September 16, The Washington Post published an article with Ford’s name — which is how Sen. Grassley and his fellow Republicans found out who’d written the letter. On the 17th, Ford’s counsel told the MSM that Ford wanted a public hearing on the matter. A redacted copy of the Ford letter was leaked to CNN and published. The committee invited Ford to a hearing the following Monday, but no response was received from Ford or her attorneys. Judge Kavanaugh was then interviewed by committee investigative staff, but Democrats refused to participate in that interview.

On September 20, Feinstein gave an un-redacted copy of the Ford letter to Grassley. Told that Ford wanted to maintain her anonymity and has a fear of flying, committee staff informed her attorneys that they would fly to California to interview her. In her testimony, Ford said she was never advised of this offer, almost certainly because Feinstein and Ford’s Democrat-activist attorneys were pushing for an optically sensational public hearing. Which they ultimately got.

The full details between September 13 and 27 can be read in the committee chronology, but suffice it to say that Feinstein’s motives are betrayed by what occurred between the time she received the Ford letter on July 30 and the time its contents were leaked to the press as the Kavanaugh hearings were concluding during the second week of September.

On June 27, Democrats were alarmed by the announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement. They were even more alarmed on July 9, when President Trump announced an exceptional (and more solidly conservative) replacement for Kennedy, his former clerk Brett Kavanaugh.

Coinciding with Feinstein’s receipt of Ford’s letter, there was a conference call to Democrats about the Kavanaugh nomination from leftist strategist Ricki Seidman (who became one of Ford’s “advisers”). In that conference call, Seidman stated, “Over the coming days and weeks there will be a strategy that will emerge, and I think it’s possible that that strategy might ultimately defeat the [Kavanaugh nomination].”

Given the nature and age of the allegations, Feinstein — and Ford, who teaches psychology of all things — most certainly knew that Ford should’ve gotten a forensic interview from a professional sex-crime investigator in order to determine the veracity of her claims. In essence, this is the equivalent of preserving the evidence so that it’s not contaminated, even though the evidence consisted only of Ford’s allegations. But the “evidence” was grossly contaminated in order that if fit into Feinstein’s plan.

A forensic interview would have helped substantiate Ford’s perception about what happened to her — in order to get to the truth.

Yet this has NEVER been about finding the truth but about creating unjust and inexcusable political optics.

Harvard Law School professor emeritus and liberal Democrat Alan Dershowitz says of Feinstein’s play: “When it’s a white man being accused by the Left of sexual offenses, all the rules are called off. The rules of presumption of innocence, the rules of due process — ‘we know he’s guilty because he’s a white man, she’s a woman, she’s a survivor,’ that’s the end of the inquiry.”

Instead, soon after receiving the letter, Feinstein suggested that Ford lawyer up, recommending Debra Katz, a hardcore Beltway Democrat specializing in sexual harassment. Katz and other Democrats then huddled with Ford, coaching her on how to proceed and, among other things, having her take a two-question polygraph examination, which determined only that Ford believed the story she had crafted.

Astoundingly, when asked about the leak at the close of Judge Kavanaugh’s testimony, Feinstein looked flustered, and after asserting that her staff did not leak the letter, she actually had the unmitigated audacity to blame Ford — to blame the “victim.”

It’s now clear that Feinstein had no intention of maintaining Ford’s “privacy” and that she scripted the entire charade. Feinstein should therefore be interviewed by the FBI to determine the sequence of events and motives behind the leaking of Ford’s letter. Feinstein’s actions, or those of her cutouts, likely warrant felony charges.

To that end, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), himself a Harvard-educated attorney, warned, “[Ford’s] lawyers are going to face a DC bar investigation into their misconduct” for not informing Ford that Senate investigators had offered to travel to California to interview her. Cotton also insisted, “Dianne Feinstein and her staff are going to face an investigation for why they leaked that. All of this could have been done discreetly. It happens hundreds of times every year in the Judiciary Committee.”

SUBSTANTIVE PROBLEMS WITH FORD;S TESTIMONY —

Where to start with Ford’s salacious, unsupported, unsubstantiated, uncorroborated, and in fact refuted claims?

With an analytical ear and eye, I evaluated every painful minute of both the Ford and Kavanaugh testimonies.

Here’s my list of inconsistencies.

As to when the alleged groping occurred, Ford claimed, in communications with The Washington Post on 6 July, before sending her letter to Feinstein on 30 July, that the attack happened in the “mid 1980s.” Her letter to Feinstein noted “the early 80s.” She claimed in her testimony that she recalled running into Mark Judge (whom she says was with Kavanaugh when he assaulted her but who categorically denies it) at the Potomac Village Safeway some weeks after the incident, and that helped her place the timeline.

Apparently, Judge wrote a casual memoir that mentioned working at a food store, and Feinstein’s staff put that together for Ford after reviewing what Judge wrote.

Who did she tell that Kavanaugh was the alleged attacker? Until July of this year, she had never named him. Ford testified that she told her husband about a “sexual assault” before they were married in 2002 — 20 years after the alleged groping — but had told him it was “physical abuse” before they were married. But she didn’t name the alleged assailant, and no name was mentioned in her 2012 marriage therapy or her 2013 individual therapy.

Where did it happen? Ford only knows in broad terms when and where she attended a party and was allegedly groped by Kavanaugh. She doesn’t know how she got to the party, who took her, or whether it was before or after others arrived.

Ford doesn’t recall which of the “visibly drunk” boys, Kavanaugh or Judge, pushed her into the room, who turned up the music, or who pushed her onto the bed. She claimed Kavanaugh covered her mouth to keep her from crying out for help, but after some sort of groping, the three of them just toppled onto the floor, at which time the two drunk boys just let her “get up and run out of the room” to the bathroom right across the hall.

Why did she not run down the stairs for help instead of running to the bathroom right across the hall from the bedroom, where she stayed until the two boys had “loudly walked down the narrow stairs, pin-balling off the walls on the way down”?

Ford doesn’t recall who took her home after the party, approximately eight miles from where she estimates the party might have been.

Ford claims, “The details about that night … I will never forget. They have been seared into my memory.” But she has forgotten just about everything except that she just “drank one beer.”

However, nobody else remembers the alleged details, much less the party — even her friend Leland Keyser, whom she also places at the gathering. Indeed, all the alleged witnesses named by Ford have refuted her account.

Regarding Ford’s memory, Rachel Mitchell, the sex-crimes prosecutor who interviewed her, asked if Feinstein had suggested she obtain a “forensic interview” as noted in law-enforcement guidelines, because “effective investigation requires cooperation with a multi-disciplinary team that includes medical professionals, victim advocates, dedicated forensic interviewers, criminalists, and other law enforcement members.”

Ford stated simply, “No,” but someone of Ford’s academic standing, a PhD in psychology, should certainly have known that a forensic interview would have been part of the correct course of action. Ford gave very technical testimony about memories, noting that various neurotransmitters “code memories into the hippocampus, and so the trauma-related experience is locked there, whereas other details kind of drift.” But it never occurred to her, or Feinstein, or the attorneys she recommended for Ford that a forensic interview was in order?

Mitchell outlined many serious inconsistencies in a lengthy analysis of Ford’s testimony, concluding, “A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that.” Key points of those inconsistencies are outlined here and here.

Tuesday, a man who was in a relationship with Ford for six years prior to her marriage has submitted a sworn statement to Sen. Grassley, casting significant doubt on the claims in Ford’s testimony. Among other things, he wrote, “During our time dating, Dr. Ford never brought up anything regarding her experience as a victim of sexual assault, harassment, or misconduct.” And he also indicated, contrary to Ford’s testimony, that she had coached someone else about passing a polygraph exam.

This other person denies his claim.

Washington attorney James Thurber has compiled a lot of questions the FBI should be asking Dr. Ford.

Predictably, as the Feinstein/Ford case against Kavanaugh is collapsing, Democrats are now desperately moving the goalposts, shifting their investigation to his testimony about his high-school yearbook and his comments about alcohol use, thereby seeking some path, any path to perjury. (This is similar to the Democrats’ shift, once the fake Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy began to collapse, to an obstruction of justice investigation.)

For the record, the previous FBI probes would have covered the question of alcohol use.

FINALLY, THE HYPOCRITES —

Ford’s spurious allegations are being heralded by the party of serial sexual assailant Bill Clinton and his chief defender and enabler Hillary Clinton, and by DNC Deputy Chair Keith Ellison.

Feinstein, a card-carrying Clintonista, now wants to investigate groping allegations from 36 years ago? Somebody get Juanita Broaddrick and Clinton’s other victims on the line.

And there sits committee member Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker (D-NJ), judging Kavanaugh for allegedly groping somebody 36 years ago. But it was Booker who revealed in a college newspaper that he had once groped an intoxicated 15-year-old girl.

But at the very top of the “creep factor” scale is committee member Richard “Stolen Valor” Blumenthal (D-CT), who made it clear this week that no amount of FBI investigation would be sufficient: “This list of witnesses is only a beginning. It’s not the end of what the FBI needs to do.”

When questioning Kavanaugh, Blumenthal strolled out a little Latin: “Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus,” noting the principle in a trial that when a witness lies about one thing, he will lie about anything. But it’s Blumenthal who is the most egregious of liars.

In his best put-on, he declared that Kavanaugh was guilty as charged and would be a “stain” on the Supreme Court. But according to even The New York Times, Blumenthal is a well-documented liar. He’s also a stain on the U.S. Senate.

In the run-up to his first Senate campaign in 2010, then-Connecticut Attorney General Blumenthal repeatedly declared that he had served in Vietnam — but he did not.

At an event honoring veterans, Blumenthal asserted, “We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam, and you exemplify it.”

At a memorial service for fallen veterans, he said, “When we returned from Vietnam, I remember the taunts, the verbal and even physical abuse we encountered. We had to endure taunts and insults, and no one said ‘Welcome home.’”

On another occasion to welcome OEF and OIF veterans home, he said, “When we returned, we saw nothing like this.”

According to the Times, after at least five deferments, “In 1970, with his last deferment in jeopardy, [Blumenthal] landed a coveted spot in the Marine Reserve, which virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam. He joined a unit in Washington that conducted drills and other exercises and focused on local projects, like fixing a campground and organizing a Toys for Tots drive.”

Caught in his disgraceful lie, Blumenthal said, “I may have misspoken — I did misspeak — on a few occasions [but] I will not allow anyone to take a few of those misplaced words and impugn my record of service. I regret that I misspoke…”

Whatever you say, Sergeant Stolen Valor.

Laughably, leaping to new hypocritical heights, Feinstein offered this assessment of Kavanaugh’s response to her witch-hunt charade: “Judge Kavanaugh did not reflect an impartial temperament, or the fairness and even-handedness one would see in a judge. He was aggressive and belligerent. He should not be rewarded with a lifetime Supreme Court seat.”

Just how is an innocent man supposed to comport himself when confronted with an utterly flimsy 36-year-old attempted rape allegation? Answer: with righteous indignation. (Had Kavanaugh instead responded meekly and mildly during his testimony, you can be certain that Democrats would’ve pointed to his lack of anger as evidence of his guilt.)

Chuck Schumer (D-NY) also got the parroting memo: “Judge Kavanaugh harbors deep, deep partisan resentments. That’s not the kind of Justice we need on the Supreme Court.”

And after dragging Kavanaugh and the nation through this charade, now Feinstein is arguing that the final FBI report should remain highly confidential…

All said, on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called out Democrats on their Kavanaugh agenda, saying: “The national spectacle the professional left has created around Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process has now reached some kind of fever pitch … a [virtual] mudslide of wild, uncorroborated accusations have poured out. This mudslide has been actively embraced, urged on and capitalized upon by Democrats inside this chamber and [their] far-left special interests. … The time for endless delay and obstruction has come to a close. Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is out of committee. We’re considering it here on the floor and … we’ll be voting this week.”

As we await the FBI report, notably, a Harvard Center for American Political Studies poll was just released, and according to that survey this week, 60% of Americans support Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation if the FBI finds no other evidence to corroborate Ford’s accusations. And 75% of respondents believe that Feinstein should have provided Ford’s letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee when she received it in July, rather than waiting until Kavanaugh’s hearing had concluded.
