    Forbes ^ | Sept. 23, 2018 | Steve Denning
    On July 9, 2018, Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to fill the place on the U.S. Supreme Court vacated by Justice Kennedy, with the prospect of ensuring a Republican majority for another generation. However, in its actions over the last ten days, the Republican leadership has jeopardized its goals through its failure to respect the rules of crisis management: Recognize the crisis as a crisis Get out as much information as possible as soon as possible, particularly any negative information Avoid saying anything that has to be withdrawn Avoid doing anything that looks like a cover-up

    Sen. Chuck Grassley has decided to give Christine Blasey-Ford one more day to decide if she wants to testify before the Judiciary committee. This is a bad idea. Ford did deserve a hearing, but she no longer does. Once Ford teamed up with Ricki Seidman, it became very clear that the intent here is to destroy Brett Kavanaugh as Seidman tried to do to Clarence Thomas. Ford and her legal team are engaged in chicanery. They've made asinine demands: Citing “sources,” Fox News’ Shannon Bream reports on the demands Christine Blasey Ford and her legal team are making as a condition for...

  • Kavanaugh to Give Senate Calendars From 1982 to Back Up Denial

    The New York Times ^ | September 23, 2018 | Pete Baker
    WASHINGTON — Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh has calendars from the summer of 1982 that he plans to hand over to the Senate Judiciary Committee that do not show a party consistent with the description of his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, according to someone working for his confirmation. The calendars do not disprove Dr. Blasey’s allegations, Judge Kavanaugh’s team acknowledged. He could have attended a party that he did not list. But his team will argue to the senators that the calendars provide no corroboration for her account of a small gathering at a house where he allegedly pinned her to...

    At 85 years old, Chuck Grassley is among the oldest members of the United States Senate. He is not the absolute oldest, though — that honor goes to Dianne Feinstein, who was born a few months before Grassley. Charles Ernest Grassley was born on September 17, 1933. He recently celebrated his 85th birthday. The Iowa Senator was first elected to the US Senate in 1980. He has been serving in the Senate for the past 38 years. He is now serving his seventh term in office.

    When Ed introduced the lastest player in the Christine Blasey Ford saga last night, it seemed like bad news for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s detractors. The identity of the fourth person at the alleged party where Ford claims to have been assaulted turned out to be Leland Ingham Keyser, who describes herself as a “lifelong friend” of Ford’s. Unfortunately for Ford’s story, Keyser released a statement saying that she’s never met Kavanaugh and, like everyone else listed as party attendees, has no recollection of any such party. There’s one element to this latest revelation which should be setting off some alarm...

    There are dozens of bonafide reasons as to why the Senate has no obligation to delay the Kavanaugh confirmation another minute.The underhanded nature with which the activist and sore-losing leftists in the U.S. Senate have conducted nearly every element of this drawn out exhibition has been noted by an electorate that put in office (by overwhelming margin) a President they hoped would transform politics into something resembling a system that once again works for Americans.GOP “likely turnout” for 2018 (over the past two weeks) has *increased* by an average of 3-8% according to the poll measuring it. Rust belt production workers,...

    An intriguing in-depth new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that a Stanford University Psychiatry Professor named Dr. Christine Blasey has become the latest centerpiece of a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) plot to harm President Trump with her last-minute allegation, just days prior to US Senate confirmation, that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had attempted to sexually assault her over 30 years ago when they were teenage school children—while being kept from the American people about Dr. Blasey is that she currently oversees the CIA Undergraduate Internship Program Stanford University developed by the notorious CIA-connected...

    During his upcoming appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats are apparently going to interrogate Brett Kavanaugh about his drinking and partying in his high school years. (snip) Here’s what Hawaii Sen. Maize Hirono said on CNN’s “State of the Union”: “We want to hear — I would be wanting to hear what kind of environment it was in high school,” Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said Sunday during an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Apparently, there was a lot of drinking and partying going on,” she continued. “This is why we need an investigation. We need an independent...

Archived wapo article. http://archive.fo/gk85T When Donald Trump won his upset presidential victory in 2016, Christine Blasey Ford’s thoughts quickly turned to a name most Americans had never heard of but one that had unsettled her for years: Brett M. Kavanaugh.Kavanaugh — a judge on the prestigious U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia — was among those mentioned as a possible replacement for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in 2016. When Trump nominated Neil M. Gorsuch,...

    The woman who has accused Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers has committed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, her lawyers said on Sunday. The lawyers said some details — including whether an outside lawyer will question her — still needed to be resolved, but that those issues would not impede holding a hearing. The agreement, reached after an hourlong negotiating session Sunday morning between the lawyers and committee aides, is the latest step in a halting process toward a potentially explosive hearing that will pit the woman, Christine Blasey Ford,...

    Okay—so, the Brett Kavanaugh drama is heating up. Christine Blasey Ford has lobbed a grenade at Judge Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of a drunken episode in which he attempted to sexually assault her at a party some 30-plus years ago. Kavanaugh was 17-years-old. It’s a serious charge—and it should be dissected before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Give Ms. Ford her day to detail this episode…if she can find the time. The committee and Ford’s lawyers, one of which, Debra Katz, is publicly anti-Trump (she’s and more of an operative) are still trying to hash out the details. Par for the...

    It took the French Revolution ten years (1789-1799) to go from an idealistic fight for freedom to the one-man rule of Napoleon, but these are fast-moving times and the #MeToo movement has gone from the necessary correction of monsters like Harvey Weinstein to an all-out assault on the rule of law and hatred of the entire male sex in about eighteen months. (Well, it was men who came up with the Magna Carta.) Think I'm exaggerating? How about the nauseating misandry of the senator from Hawaii, Mazie Hirono? Not only, in the eyes of Ms. Hirono, is Brett Kavanaugh automatically...

"We committed to moving forward with an open hearing on Thursday Sept 27 at 10:00 am." Sources on Capitol Hill tell Fox News they are now preparing in earnest for the Thursday hearing, which is likely to push a confirmation vote on the Senate floor beyond October 1, the start of the next Supreme Court term.

    The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of a decades-old sexual assault has accepted a Senate committee's request to tell her side next week but Christine Blasey Ford wants to resume negotiations over the exact terms of her appearance, her lawyers said Saturday. It was not immediately clear whether the Republican-run Senate Judiciary Committee would agree to more talks with Ford's team. Also unclear was when she might come to Capitol Hill and she was offering to speak in a public session or a private one. The committee wanted her to appear Wednesday, but she prefers her earlier request...

    DUNKERTON — I traveled to Cambodia two times recently. Each time I visit the “Killing Fields” of the murderous Khmer Rouge to pay homage to the innocent. They were all accused of crimes against the government. Confessions were obtained either voluntarily or through brutal coercion. These were used as “evidence” to convict the innocent and condemn them to a brutal death by bludgeoning after which their bodies were thrown in mass graves. The #Metoo movement has been weaponized in a similar manner to its detriment. The accused are assumed guilty and accusations are placed on par with evidence. Likewise anyone...
