I've been pondering the problem of pornography. I understand that the internet has made it easily accessible, and Amazon even sells it for Kindle. Combined with the aggressive #MeToo movement, I fear young men are turning to porn instead of learning to have good relationships with real women. I've been reading some studies that suggest frequent use of porn rewires the male brain to respond better to porn than to real women. When I was in medical school we were taught that porn is OK and a normal interest for young men, but I don't think this is any longer the case with its easy availability. And what will these porn/whore robots do to them? Thoughts?

How do they come to this conclusion, it's like the folks who determined lsd was safe because they all took it?

@narciso- that is the most likely reason. It was the conventional wisdom.

I think the same is happening with video gaming. One of my daughters married a guy who I liked and was nice looking and smart but all he did was play video games. He was not interested in social life or families. He worked and had a reasonable job but at home it was all gaming.

They finally divorced and it was hard on her. She was thinking she wanted kids and a normal life.

@Sydney,

I've been reading some studies that suggest frequent use of porn rewires the male brain to respond better to porn than to real women.

I buy this. True, I haven't been on the dating scene since I got married 23 years ago. Back then, we didn't have the internet; instead, we had an occasional Playboy magazine and an occasional strip club. Indeed, I lived in North Beach in San Francisco, around the corner from the famous Condor and other SF strip clubs, but only went 1 or 2 times. They seemed totally worthless, because there were too many attractive real, live SF females to meet and date.

Now, it seems that young males have lost the fine art of dating, are paralyzed with fears of being deemed sexual harassers by angry politicized women, and have tons of access to porn, whenever they want it.

Do they have corn maze attractions out that way? New England isn't know for raising a lot of corn, but there are several local farms that do grow corn and set up mazes at this time of year, presumably to attract and entertain families with kids.

Just have to find the right women. Legal immigrant women from Eastern Europe are good prospects for young men. A lot of good young black women and Latina women.

Don’t date a white female who graduated from college unless she believes in Hod and attends religious services at least a few times a month. If a lad is in high school, don’t date a young White’s female who wants to go to college unless you met her through church or some similar religious based connection.

And don’t donate your sperm.

Let the Julias die off alone and childless. In 50 years, society will be better off.

Etienne said...

The only way to go now, is to get hormone injections and get a nice pair of tits, become a shemale, and then find yourself a nice lesbian woman.

Lesbian women seem to be alright with a semi-operational penis, but you have to have tits.

That is to say, the more hormones, the less roto gets to the rooter.

mccullough said...

Should be “God” not “Hod.”

rhhardin said...

Porn for men is aimed at ejaculation, which abruptly ends their interest in sex, so that obsession isn't obsessing them for a while. It's a defense against brain wiring.

The social effect is that there's no sexual reason to interact with women. It's not a rewiring though, just the disappearance of a former practice.

Women could combat it by giving men a nonsexual reason to date them.

The Cracker Emcee Rampant said...

I saw that too, Crack. My immediate thought was, “and so dies #MeToo”.

tim maguire said...

The optimistic view, I suppose, is that more realistic fake sex will reduce the willingness of men to accept bad relationships in exchange for sex. Which will force a reckoning in human relationships and make them more mutually rewarding.

Angle-Dyne, Samurai Buzzard said...

tim maguire said...

The Crack Emcee said...A Woman Has Accused a Republican Senator of Raping Her. Inspired By Ford’s Testimony.?

State Senator.

The Cracker Emcee Rampant said...

It’s the “only Nixon could go to China” thing. Until #MeToo has cost the Democrats a Presidency or a Senate or Supreme Court majority, it will have no real validity with half the population. No virtue without sacrifice. And it’s already been demonstrated that Democrats will never make those sacrifices.

Ballsey-Ford's lawyer says no limit to scope or time frame. She and Mueller must have attended different schools together.

MadisonMan said...

What I want to ask people who believe Prof Ford:

Did you believe the initial allegations against the Duke lacrosse team?
Did you believe the Rolling Stone article on Rape at UVa?
Did you believe the allegations against Ted Stevens?
Did you believe Monica Lewinsky? Juanita Broadderick?
Did you believe the initial allegations against Larry Craig?
Did you believe the initial allegations against Anthony Weiner?
Did you believe the bribery allegations against Judge Hastings?
Did you believe that Dan Rather's report was true?

This list could be lengthened easily.

I would think that the Venn Diagram of people who correctly divined the truth in all these cases is pretty near a Null set. (I applaud the acumen of those who bat a thousand) And now we have another allegation to consider.

I presume Judge Kavanagh is innocent and that he should be appointed to the Court. If it turns out later that he is found guilty of what happened, he can be impeached.

Guilt should not be assigned by Internet Howling.

They used to do so. When I was in college we had "coffee dates."

The whole dating thing seems to have gone away. Sexual relationships get much more intense and much faster.

HT said...

I love CSPAN.

Yesterday, Jiminy cricket said no one is going to want to become a judge anymore. I remember in the early 90s a friend saying who’s gonna want to become a cop after the LA riots? My answer is that this almost never happens. The law schools, last time I checked are stuffed, overflowing. Young people are not always gazing at the fires that the middle-aged are sometimes stoking.

Well anyway, yesterday’s hearing was good. I agreed with nearly everyone I heard! How’s that possible? It also renewed my respect for Feinstein. She is an awesome lady. There’s probably many stances I would not agree with her on, but she is upright and one of the most articulate people I’ve ever heard speak in Washington, DC. She would have made one of our best presidents, I’m sure.

One thing that disappoints me on the Democratic side is that no one really ever reflects my view - that it’s difficult to know what happened, but that the man is a dumbass and on that basis should be voted down. But I’m an oddball Democrat anyway, who agrees with what to me is the most obvious description of the problem that Dump gave about the immigration crisis — FIX THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY.

Finally it’s sad that boys are required to do less and less physically these days, and I know Camille Paglia says that it’s the LACK of socialization that makes men rapists - whereas the feminists she critiques say that it is the socialization itself that creates rapists - but maybe the physical side of existence and survival, well there’s something to be said for it, and we lose it at our peril. I think dudes like Kavanaugh are an example of that loss, there are others.

Then again, who knows!

Etienne said...

Pelosi says the Republicans are afraid of truth from the FBI.

You know, like when James Comey used to run the place.

HT said...

This FBI report will not do anything one way or the other.

Etienne said...

Bottom line: Feinstein is guilty of spoliation of evidence.

She hid the evidence from the Chairman of the committee, and the Chairman was denied the knowledge he needed to conduct a fair session. Then caused the evidence to be leaked to the media.

The Senate should now vote to sanction Feinstein. It is the right thing to do.

Gahrie said...

All you need to know about feminism comes from Forrest Gump. Jenny represents feminists.

mccullough said...

Ford’s friend said she didn’t know Kavanaugh and never met him.

That’s a refutation of Ford’s Claim. Saying she didn’t remember a small gathering of 4 boys and Ford and her isn’t helpful but doesn’t contradict. Saying she doesn’t know Kavanaugh contradicts. They both could not have been there. So Ford is wrong about one thing she said is a fact.

And after the way Ford shit on her friend the other day, she came off like people with mental illness do when their version of reality is challenged.

Let’s hear from Ford’s parents. The FBI must interview them.

Michael K said...

It also renewed my respect for Feinstein. She is an awesome lady.

Democrats have always had a weak spot for felons.

mccullough said...

If her parents talk to the FBI, then this investigation will exonerate Kavanaugh.

Ford went from a high school sophomore to a 52 year old university professor in California with a husband of 16 years and two boys.

What happened in between?

Why aren’t any of her friends from high school, college, and graduation school coming forward to support her? Why none of her students coming forward to support her?

The Dems know why. Ford is mentally disturbed and has been for a long time.

Darrell said...

Ford has thousands of letter of praise. From women who never met--and all entered into the record (by Democrats) too!

mccullough said...

Why did Trump mention her “loving parents” in a tweet?

We know why. They need to come forward and put an end to this bullshit.

tim in vermont said...

It also renewed my respect for Feinstein.

So what was it, that her driver was a Chinese spy? Or that she hid evidence from the committee so as to make the truth harder to be known even than it was?

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/feinstein-chinese-spy/

The highly partisan Snopes can’t even bring themselves to admit that the story is true, but they aren’t stupid enough to say it is false. Apparently Snopes doesn’t like the spin people from the center and right side of the news spectrum are putting on it because it makes Feinstein look bad.

Jonathan Graehl said...

Trump's "loving parents" is a callout to this between-the-lines disavowal by her father. Althouse, I think: 'It chilled me to read what her father, Ralph Blasey, wrung from himself to offer the Washington Post, in the conditional tense: 'I think all of the Blasey family would support her. I think her record stands for itself. Her schooling, her jobs, and so on.' Then he hung up. A second call yielded this hypothetical: 'I think any father would have love for his daughter.'"'

Etienne said...

Bad Lieutenant said...[excessive white space]

The blog owner hates people who use white space to get attention. Rightly so...

mccullough said...

Her parents know about her mental illness. So do the Dems and GOO. It’s why Kavanaugh didn’t go after her and said his daughter prayed for her.

Her parents need to come forward now and put an end to this.

Hagar said...

One thing that puzzles me is Blasey Ford stating that she wore a one-piece bathing suit under her clothes. There is no mention of the alleged party being a pool party, so what is the point of this? Is it some sort of a signal to the sisterhood?

mccullough said...

Leland knows as well.

It’s time to stop coddling Ford. We all have sympathy for the mentally ill. But we also don’t let them inflict pain on others.

Her parents have a responsibility not to let her injure herself or others.

tim in vermont said...

Plus Snopes knows for a fact that Feinstein’s driver, who was “forced to retire” never passed anything along that he may have overheard in the car to China, he said so! So no worries!

mccullough said...

She had a swimsuit on because she was at her country club swimming and diving. Said that’s what she spent her days doing in the summer.

But she doesn’t remember the house. Doesn’t know how she got to the gathering. She believes she came from the country club straight to the gathering. Doesn’t know how she got home (or if she went home).

This is just morally wrong to let this shit show go on.

Bay Area Guy said...

@rhardin,

"Women could combat it by giving men a nonsexual reason to date them."

As an analogue, a non-sexual offer of friendship is good, too. We've all had hot "friends" who sometimes crossed the boundary of friendship, into romance or one night stands.In addition though, I've been fortunate to have a lot of healthy platonic relations with attractive women - my sisters' friends, my friends' sisters, my friends' wives, my wife's friends, etc, etc.

That's why I can't stand these angry feminists. Mostly, they have shitty miserable lives themselves, and blame others for it.

Various gofundme accounts have raked in over $775,506 to help cover costs to C. Ford for testifying. Then you know there is going to be a book deal. Plus I would bet she is suddenly going to be worth a higher salary to the college she works at now that she is a lefty celebrity. Yet people ask why she would come forward. Well not a bad pay day for a few hours of acting.

mccullough said...

Ford came forward for the attention and sympathy. It’s what mentally ill people do.

Her husband and parents know this well.

D 2 said...

There's a lesser known Springsteen song called "Lost in the Flood" off his first album so unless someone was a real devoted fan at that underage drinking swimming party, I don't think that song (or album) was on the stereo That Night That Summer Some Place Possibly in '82. Maybe a few cuts from The River album but even that's doubtful. (Can't think of any song references associated with Lost in the Weeds.)

Hopefully my posted references to songs NOT likely to have been playing - Van, Prince, Sheena Easton, Eagles, Bruce, maybe a couple more - it's been going on so long, I can't remember all my posts.... in any case, I hope by eliminating the "nots" it can help to pin down what exactly was being played too loudly. That would be a dramatic breakthrough to other possible details, on that I'm positive.

Porn has not just changed sex for men. I think it has drastically changed what females view as the norm and what is acceptable and or expected of them.

From The American Thinker:

"Based on its investigations, WebTrends determined that Swetnick had engaged in inappropriate conduct, but that no corroborating evidence existed to support Swetnick's allegations against her coworkers," the complaint said.

After a WebTrends human resources director informed Swetnick that the company was unable to corroborate the sexual harassment allegations she had made, she "remarkably" walked back the allegations, according to the complaint.

Treasure open spaces, wilderness, and wildlife whenever you can. They are all disappearing due to rampant human encroachment. There seems to be no shortage of Deplorable Trumptard Trolls (DTT), however. Schlump declared that the war on Global Warming is OVER, and humanity LOST, so, according to him, there is no point in lifting a finger to fight it. That failure to act is a War Crime punishable by a rapid death of the planet we call home, and a trial at the International Criminal Court in The Hague for members of his administration.
In other news, Judge Kavanaugh says that the war on brewskis is doomed to fail because he likes beer a lot.

FBI leaks begin

"Corrupt elements within the DOJ and FBI have a vested self and ideological interest in supporting attacks against supreme court nominee Kavanaugh. Less than 18 hours later, those corrupt FBI officials begin leaking information to the Washington Post.

(Via Washington Post) The FBI has begun contacting people as part of an additional background investigation of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, including a second woman who alleges that the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her, according to people familiar with the unfolding investigation.

The bureau has reached out to Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh’s who alleges that he shoved his genitals in her face at a party where she had been drinking and become disoriented, her attorney said Saturday."

Michael K said...

More on the mysterious boyfriend that she didn't want to talk about.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse produced an enlarged poster of the calendar entry and laid out the Democratic theory.

"Dr. Ford said that Kavanaugh and Judge and PJ and at least one other boy were all at a house," Whitehouse said. "Well, we know Brett Kavanaugh was there because it's his schedule. And here's Judge, and here's PJ. Here are all those three named boys and others at a house together just as she says."

"She said Kavanaugh and Judge were drunk and that she had a beer," Whitehouse added. "They were drinking, just as she said."


Whitehouse is going apeshit about this date, July 1, 1982 in the calendar.

Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor Republicans hired to question Ford, asked Ford about Garrett. Ford was willing to talk, but she refused even to say Garrett's name.

"You mentioned that there was a classmate who was really sort of the connection between you and Brett Kavanaugh," Mitchell said to Ford. "Who was this person?"

"I think that that case with Mr. Whelan, who was looking at my LinkedIn page and then trying to blame the person, I just don't feel like it's right for us to be talking about that," Ford responded.

"I'm not trying to blame anybody," Mitchell said. "I just want to know who the common friend that you and -- "

"The person that Mr. Whelan was trying to say looked like Mr. Kavanaugh," Ford answered.

"OK. How long did you know this person?"

"Maybe for a couple of months we socialized," Ford said, "but he also was a member of the same country club and I know his younger brother as well."

"OK. So a couple of months before this took place?"

"Yes."

"OK. How would you characterize your relationship with him, both before and after this took place, this person?"

"He was somebody that, we use the phrase, I went out with — I wouldn't say date — I went out with for a few months," Ford explained. "That was how we termed it at the time. And after that we were distant friends and ran into each other periodically at Columbia Country Club, but I didn't see him often."

"OK."

"But I saw his brother and him several times."

"Was this person the only common link between you and Judge Kavanaugh?" Mitchell asked.


Oh oh. He was at the party Whitehouse is excited about. She did not name him.

Oh for Chrissakes. Some people are just sociopaths. They aren't made that way. Unless you're talking the entitlement culture that breeds group acceptance of sexual deviance - like Catholicism, for instance.

The sociopaths are made is self-perpetuating (beguile, cunning) and womens' attraction to them. Like how Michael K's mother was attracted to his father. Together they created a brand-new sociopath of their own - and outsourced the raising of him to a NURSEMAID, to boot!

He gets so angry when I say that but tough titties.

Oh wait, he didn't have a WET NURSE too on top of the NURSEMAID!

Geez.

The ACLU is nonpartisan - it does not oppose or support candidates for judicial or political office.

However, the group said in a release Saturday afternoon that its board held an meeting, and has chosen to make an exception to that policy.

They have decided to become partisan only when their board chooses an exception.

Just saw a commercial for Anscetery DNA testing, which reminds me:

Decades old Cold case multiple rapist arrested in California due to DNA match a couple of weeks ago. Police matched his DNA due to a relative submitting DNA for an ancestry search thing.

I just read the description of the encounter Flake had with the two SJW women on the elevator. It was shocking to me and I am not easily shocked. I think we've passed into the 5 minute hate part of "1984." But who would have guessed (granting that Orwell wrote for European prejudices) that someone named Bret Kavanaugh would play the role of Emanuel Goldstein. Only in America.

Trump will be out of office, but BK will still be on the bench. So I truly believe that if BK is confirmed that we will get years of 5 minute BK hate even if RvW never comes before the court.

Sure. RIiiiiiight. THat's totally what co-workers accuse other co-workers of.

You've never actually worked a job in your life, have you? Or at least, not one with enough capital assets to protect itself from lawsuits?

Claims not to date women from America because they hate their bodies and take that hate out on their men.

I never claimed any such thing. I simply like dating women from other countries - just like your president does.

But then, if you'd ever had the ability to travel you might have had the experience to speak from for doing so also. Must suck to be so limited in your options. You live in the same housing project you grew up in, right?

Mr. Majestyk said...

Ford testified that in 2012 she feared that Kav might get on the Supreme Court.
How did she know he had became a judge? Appointments to the court of appeals generally aren't national news. She and Kav didn't go to the same school, so her alumni newsletter probably wouldn't have said anything about it. If she heard about it on social media, I would be interested seeing her social media reaction. Come to think of it, I would also be interested in seeing her social media postings as Trump considered Kav and other judges for the seat. At the hearing, she testified that they were all highly qualified, or something. I wonder if that is how she described them at the time.

What evidence is there? Very little direct evidence. But what there is, the testimony of the alleged witnesses she cited, contradicts her.

And this gets law students protesting and chanting and calls for him to lose his job, by those same law students.

This is the worst shit show I have ever seen. I lived in the USA for 20 years, and I often had to defend America to my Canadian friends. But I cannot any more. The Democrats have sacrificed any shred of principle or fairness. This is reckless and cruel — not just to Kavanaugh but to Ford, who was used shamelessly by Feinstein. And to their families. But even worse than the cruelty is the recklessness. People who can have no certain knowledge either way are escalating the demands, the vituperation, the rumor mongering. The Republicans, Graham excepted, are gutless and unprincipled. They are pathetic. But at least they are not Democrats.

qu'est-ce que c'est...and c'est et aint so, Dockter Ford!

Under California law, as with almost every other state, in order for a person to identify publicly as a psychologist they must be licensed by the California Board of Psychology, a process that includes 3,000 hours of post-doctoral professional experience and passing two rigorous exams. To call oneself a psychologist without being licensed by a state board is the equivalent of a law school graduate calling herself a lawyer without ever taking the bar exam.

According to records, Ford is not licensed in the state of California. A recent search through the Department of Consumer Affairs License Bureau, which provides a state-run database of all licensed psychologists in California, produced no results for any variation of spelling on Ford’s name.

Anything to this?

There is no Entitlement Clause in the Constitution that says this Kavanaugh douchebag is "born to judge" over you, as Trump believes. He has credibility and character problems and should not be confirmed. If you knew what those things were you'd be embarrassed to disagree.

Looks like the Delmonico can be cut from any of the steak cuts. The stuff we buy in stores, is graded Choice. The best steakhouses only buy Prime, and the top end restaurants, buy prime, then age their own beef and cut their own steaks. Aging is just controlled rotting, the tissue breaking down is where the tenderness comes from. The Delmonico is created by the prep, and cooking. I haven't ordered one before. Like you, Ribeye is always reliable. Fillet Mignon is what I go with if I want to treat myself. The beef tenderlion is the most tender and flavorful part of the cow. A cook has to try very hard to mess it up.
In the Des Moines area, there was a big influx of Sicilian immigrants in the 1920's. They opened dozens of super clubs/steakhouses/speak easys. One of their creations is what they called Steak De Bergo. Fillet, with a whole cream, butter and garlic reduction. It is very tasty.
Thanks for bringing up steak. Great subject

R.J. Chatt said...

Feinstein asked Ford, how do you know what you remembered is true? And Ford answered, because I trust my memory is true as I trust my experience of you is true. (Not a direct quote.) Feinstein accepted that explanation without any further questioning, after all Ford used her little girl voice and she has degrees in psychology. She is an expert so she can't be nuts and the survivor must be believed.

The #metoo mob demands Kavanaugh stand for all sexual abusers. Politicians are afraid of confronting this mass hysteria, where the "victim must be believed," due process be damned. It's strange to watch this in real time as opposed to reading about it in the Middle Ages or some other less enlightened period.

Too bad Dr. Ford couldn't be questioned on the topic of "false memory." It is worth looking at a few articles on false memory, what that is and how do they happen:

Distinguishing True From False Memories: Need for Corroboration

Also, "...memories are often mixed; some parts are accurate and some are not. Separating the two can be a chore under ordinary circumstances. A woman might have consciously repressed childhood sexual abuse by a neighbor or relative. Some experience in adulthood may serve as a retrieval cue and she remembers the abuse. This disturbs her and disturbs her dreams. She has nightmares, but now it is her father or grandfather or priest who is abusing her. She enters RMT and within a few months she recalls vividly how her father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, priest, etc., not only sexually abused her but engaged in horrific satanic rituals involving human sacrifices and cannibalism. Where does the truth lie? The patient's memories are real and horrible, even if false. The patient's suffering is real whether the memories are true or false. And families are destroyed whether the memories are true or false." ELIZABETH F. LOFTUS

So he fails. He's just another corporatist shill... and one who makes up legal BS rationales to suit his desired, anti-worker outcome, at that.

Just the ones who are obviously deceiving, Ritmo. Haven't you got any radar at all? Sure you have. My mother, who has a recorded IQ of 170, (sigh, but) who hates PDJT almost as much as you do, says she is lying-or faking, or something is wrong with her, but she ain't right.

Can't you separate your dislike of President Trump, of Judge K (sometimes seemingly of anybody to the right of you TBH ;) ), from the fact that she is just a TYPICAL broken American woman, who is being used as a puppet by the Ds, and will furthermore be shattered by the probing she will get from the Feebs (or would if Trump told them to)? She's another Marius van der Lubbe. A patsy.

Incidentally, no less entitled than K. Their dads play golf together, remember? If she wasn't useful to you she'd be the kind you hate on, a rich bitch with connections greasing her way through life. And as for a roundheeled lush? That's what the FBI is for. If they want to, they'll count up all the notches on her bedpost, and prosecute for lying if she says 86 and they count 87.

I understand you don't want to sacrifice tactical advantage, but you owe yourself if not us the honesty. Y'all are using Ford in ways that make a little reluctant PIV look positively benevolent.

Plus which, are you THAT certain that this will work, both re K, re the midterms and re PDT? What if this blows up in your faces and the Republicans get K, and get 57 senators and keep Congress, and Trump starts getting cooperation and unity on the Hill? What if all you've done is to reconcile the Bush clan to Donald Trump? Look at Chuck acting like a man. Are you still going to be glad you did this if you lose?

As much as it took for her to go before them and lose as much as she did, I'll allow that she may be a little loopy, and perhaps even slightly messed up. Memories get worse, not better. Perhaps her memory is less accurate than Judge Black-Outs for Me, but not for Amy. (Though she didn't have them).

It still doesn't excuse his whiny, petulant, entitled, partisan, crybaby response. If he treats the office as an entitlement, then he should be out. And the vindictive way that he conducted that hearing (interview) should disqualify him.

Plus which, are you THAT certain that this will work, both re K, re the midterms and re PDT? What if this blows up in your faces and the Republicans get K, and get 57 senators and keep Congress, and Trump starts getting cooperation and unity on the Hill?

I don't think the election will hinge on this but I do think the impact it will have worsens your side's prospects. Republicans are just defending elitist prep school frat-boy bullshit and are too defensive to understand the difference between a matter of character and a matter of criminality. For all that conservative berating of whatever "Me Too" or feminism means, their side is being a hell of a lot less black and white about the offenses and consequences in this case.

For the most part, there are rapists and total non-rapists. But Kavanaugh reminds too many people of the elitist frat boy/prep school assholes who took advantage of anyone and anything they could, whenever they could. He's not proper material.

StephenFearby said...

From Basley Ford's Transcript (from WaPo):

"...Over the years, I told very, very few friends that I had this traumatic experience. I told my husband before we were married that I had experienced a sexual assault. I had never told the details to anyone — the specific details — until May 2012, during a couples counseling session.

The reason this came up in counseling is that my husband and I had completed a very extensive, very long remodel of our home and I insisted on a second front door, an idea that he and others disagreed with and could not understand.

In explaining why I wanted a second front door, I began to describe the assault in detail. I recall saying that the boy who assaulted me could someday be on the U.S. Supreme Court, and spoke a bit about his background at an elitist all-boys school in Bethesda, Maryland. My husband recalls that I named my attacker as Brett Kavanaugh."

"...FEINSTEIN: Well, can you tell us what impact the events had on you?

FORD: Well, I think that the sequelae of sexual assault varies by person, so for me personally, anxiety, phobia and PTSD-like symptoms are the types of things that I’ve been coping with. So, more specifically, claustrophobia, panic and that type of thing.

FEINSTEIN: Is that the reason for the second door — front door…

FORD: Correct.

FEINSTEIN: … is claustrophobia?

FORD: Correct. It doesn’t — our house does not look aesthetically pleasing from the curb.

FEINSTEIN: I see. And do you have that second front door?

FORD: Yes.

FEINSTEIN: It’s…

FORD: It — it now is a place to host Google interns. Because we live near Google, so we get to have — other students can live there."


There is a good 2015 Google Street View of her house in 2015 on in this discussion thread that shows only ONE front door:

Two Front Doors????

"...And are there any pictures of her house floating around? Does she have two front doors?"

(Scroll down)

Methinks all this suggests that the lady has a crazy, unreliable memory.

Yancey Ward said...

One of the oddities of Ford's story might be easily explained by the theory that the therapist's notes were right all along, and Ford has not only been lying about it, but actively working around this inconvenient detail all along.

The polygraph exam required Ford to write a statement, the veracity of which she was required to attest to during the exam. Now this was an exam she took on August 7th, if memory serves, a week after she had sent the letter to Eshoo and Feinstein naming Kavanaugh as her assailant, and in the "early 80s" (I will come back to this date description in a moment). However, in the hand written statement she was required to write for the polygraph exam, she does two very unusual things- (1) she doesn't name Kavanaugh at all- it is a generic description of a potential sexual assault, and (2) she first wrote "early 80s", then changed by crossing out the "early", leaving the description of the time as simple "80s".

Why would she do these two seemingly inexplicable things in the polygraph statement- her story she is telling publicly is that it was Kavanaugh who attacked her, and it occurred in the "early 80s". If she is telling the truth, then the statement for the polygraph should have had both Kavanaugh's name and the unredacted "early 80s", but she not only omits Kavanaugh's name, but actively edits her own writing on the general date. At first, I couldn't explain this, but then someone reminded me of the therapist's notes and suddenly it is possible to make sense of this odd behavior. I have been working on the assumption that her entire story is a fabrication beginning to end, but if you give her the benefit of the doubt and accept the therapist's notes as a true depiction of Ford's assault, then you realize that she wrote the polygraph statement that way because it was the literal truth, but if she names Kavanaugh and keeps "early" next to 80s, then suddenly the statement isn't the truth, but is, in fact, a lie, and she was afraid she would fail the exam if she had to attest to that.

I defy you to come up with a better explanation for that polygraph statement- I can't think of one. In my next comment, I will address the 1982 part.

Yancey Ward said...

When Ford first wrote to Eshoo and Feinstein, she was generic with the date- early 80s, but later settled, by Thursday, with Summer of 1982, thereabouts. How did she settle on 1982? In her testimony, under cross from Mitchell, Ford highlights the encounter with Judge "6-8 weeks later" at Safeway where he allegedly couldn't look at her. This all sound plausible, but Ford uses it to pin the year of the assault down to 1982 6-8 weeks before she saw Judge working at the Safeway- she makes a point of this in her answers to Mitchell. Someone quoted a part of Judge's book where he describes working part of the Summer of 1982 (he points out it was the Summer before his senior year) to pay for football camp at a local supermarket. In other words, Ford could easily have constructed this story from Judge's book.

You might think this is nothing, but there is one other thing about Ford's story that hasn't made any sense with the date 1982. She testified that the first 4 years were the toughest- specifically, her college years. These parts of the story don't cohere with an attack in 1982, but does cohere if it was an attack in 1984.

In summary, if you give Ford credit for telling the truth about being attacked, and that the therapist accurately reported this story in 2012, a lot of the confusing issues from Ford's testimony and her documentation suddenly makes a lot more sense, but then you realize she is likely a pathological liar and has deliberately libeled and slandered Kavanaugh. If I am right, Ford is a cunning liar.

Every decent male out there knows leftists like you will vote for rapists like Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton all their life and jump to destroy good men just to gain political power.

You made 10 new republican voters today easy. Good work you slobbering fool.

And this could also explain why she won't detail how she got home, or how she got to the party at which she was attacked- the answer to both questions is that she drove to and from the party herself- she had a license by 1984.

That inability to describe how she got to and from the party has bothered me all along, and it why I had assumed she was making up the entire story- she couldn't claim somebody drove her home because that would be another witness she would have to either not remember, or name and run the risk of being denied by that person today, and it would be harder to explain that denial because it would probably be a more unique detail that the witness might be expected to remember 36 years later- note how she dismisses the statement by Keyser- that it wasn't a memorable event from Keyser's point of view. That arguement would be harder to invoke in the case of the person driving her home if that was the story she told, so she keeps it simpler and denies remembering how she got home.

Crack, with the links, you're doing it wrong.

There was no rape allegation. And therefore no criminal allegation.

Somebody has not been paying attention.

@Yancey, what if the party was in her own home and she doesn’t want to admit it?

I see ritmo is outraged that we don't suspend the rule of law.
We have to believe this woman !!!
She can't remember where, when , or who but demands, like ritmo, that we take her seriously.

@Yancy: nice.

That key would seem to fit in the lock...

Christine Blasey Ford has two front doors, but only one backdoor. That fails the feng shui test even with her two front door knobs. The key question the committee failed to ask: Was Kavanaugh trying to enter her front door or her backdoor? Coming in the backdoor requires addition preparation and consent, and represents a painful new chapter in this circus.

Michael K said...

In summary, if you give Ford credit for telling the truth about being attacked,

I have been giving her credit for recovered memory in therapy for alcoholism.

The house remodel is a lie. The point about her using Judge's book to fix a date is a good one.

It's been a while since I read a lot about recovered memories but the day care kids invented details that were not real, like wounds with no scars and tunnels under the McMartin preschool.

Laslo's riff about not coming up with new details on the plane flight is funny but probably also true.

Big Mike said...

@Yancey, alternatively an entitled young woman like young Christine Blasey might very well have driven to a party and driven home drunk on just a learner’s permit. Daddy can always fix it if something goes wrong.

You have to have lived in the Washington metropolitan area to appreciate how damned rich many of its residents are, how damned privileged their kids are. These days Montgomery County, where the Blasey and Kavanaugh families live, is still well to do, with (per Wikipedia) median has slipped down to 17th richest county in the United States, with a median household income just a tick under $100,000. It’s eclipsed by #1, the Virginia suburb of Loudoun County where the median household income is $134,000. Counties that are bedroom communities for Washington, DC, occupy 4 of the top 6 and 7 of the top 20.

Back in the early 1980s Montgomery was on top, and the Washington Post never printed the words “Montgomery County” without sticking the word “affluent” in front. Althouse is so caught up in her jealousy of the Kavanaugh family that she overlooks how even more wealthy and privileged the Blaseys are.

The nonsense about not being able to goto private school was a bit of a tell.

You know, I scrolled back through the comments to see if I missed any good points and it is apparent how poisoned this blog is by Ritmo. If there are 200 comments, he will post 100 of them, one right after the other,

I'd post far fewer of them, if you and your but buddies didn't post so many easily disproven falsehoods and nonsense and shoddy reasoned emotional bullcrap so much of the time.

So I've got my work cut out for me. You never refute a single thing I say.

Tell us again about Craig Venter's "discovery of the human genome." LOL!

Oh, I'm sorry. Was reminding you of that a form of "poison?"

Pussy. Just admit when you're wrong.
