"Conservative Women Are Angry About Kavanaugh—And They Think Other Voters Are, Too."

"Local- and state-level leaders across the country say they’re ready to lash out against Democrats in the midterm elections" — Emma Green in The Atlantic.
By and large, these women were not swayed by Ford’s testimony. Tamara Scott, the Republican national committeewoman for Iowa and the state director of Concerned Women for America, says she was even more skeptical of Ford’s claims after Thursday’s hearing. “I found her testimony to be inconsistent, from a woman who seemed to be confused at best,” Scott says. To her, Ford “overplayed her hand as the scattered and scared fragile female”: The professor’s “glasses were filthy and oversized, she looked scared and frazzled, [and] she refused to fix her hair caught in her glasses,” says Scott. “It was a purposeful disheveled look.”...

Laurie Lee, a Navy veteran who runs a political-consulting firm in Arkansas, has... been hearing over the last couple of weeks... that Democrats have “overplayed” these accusations. “It’s a disservice to women that have had horrific stories,” she says. She was open to believing Ford: “It doesn’t matter to me if it’s Bill Clinton or Brett Kavanaugh. We want to make sure that sexual predators are dealt with.” But like other women I interviewed, Lee believes the professor’s account is faulty, and that Democrats are using her for their own political ends. “This whole process, to me, comes across as something that has been crassly weaponized for political purposes,” says Kathleen Hunt, a political donor in Florida who spent 20 years in the CIA....”

"Believe All Women" but only if they are leftists

Bring it! Democrats certanly never thought that Republicans would believe a woman bringing forth such an accusation against a powerful Republican Judge, candidate for the Supreme Court. Democrats know who they are dealing with now, since 2016.

Low information voters are the Democrats' only friend.

Well this will be a fun thread...

Wonder what wisdom the professor will impart from her feminist viewpoint. Are these “conservative women” sexist misogynistic deplorables?

There's a reason Feinstein sat on Ford's story, and it was not to spring it at the last minute.

Some of the women in the article seemed made up.

HT said...

(I'm a little surprised Kathleen Parker's defense(s) of BK have not been cited yet.)

It's interesting to note the polls during and years after the Thomas hearings. Many more people thought Anita Hill was telling the truth years after confirmation.

I've said all along it is extremely difficult if not impossible to tell if what CBF is saying is true from those hearings, just that I have never been impressed with BK's intelligence, the little I have seen of him. I think the argument that showing too much anger invalidates him as a candidate is hogwash given his proven service on the DC appeals court.

Yeah just like all those Democrats that went to jail at the end of August...oh wait, none did.

Consider the indictments as fun saved for when they are needed. We can get to that right after we get Kavanaugh seated.

Right now you are destroying yourselves just fine.

The problem isn't lack of decency but overturning due process.

Bay Area Guy said...

I wouldn't say CONSERVATIVE women are ANGRY over Kavanaugh.

I'd say normal women love their Dads, Brothers, Husbands, and Sons. And they don't want these nice honorable men to be falsely accused of 36-year old sexual assault claims by woke crazy cat women.

And what federal appellate court do you sit on?

How many decisions have you had cited by other courts and judges???

Would you care to analyze any of those decisions and critique them here?

Do you have a law degree?

I thought not.

Caroline Walker said...

Inga, inga, inga.
This is not about my “feelings” or about “believability” but about whether or not someone with a single, unsubstantiated allegation can take a man who has built a life and sterling reputation and destroy it, without a shred of evidence. The “believe her” crowd scares me to death. Crystal magnum, Lena Dunham and the rolling stone stooge demonstrate that clearly, women lie.
It is NOT progress to capitulate to a mob rule, show trial.
As a wife and mother of a son, if the banshees can railroad Kavanaugh, they can come for your son or husband on the flimsiest pretext. This is how corrupt totalitsrian regimes get rid of political enemies.
I’ve never felt so much rage.

David Begley said...

A total blowout. The Dems are ruined.

"Former top FBI lawyer James Baker gave “explosive” closed-door testimony on Wednesday detailing for congressional investigators how the Russia probe was handled in an “abnormal fashion” reflecting “political bias,” according to two Republican lawmakers present for the deposition."

It's going great. Thanks for asking!

I’d say normal women love their daughters, mothers, sisters, as much as their sons, husbands and fathers. They don’t want their honorable daughters disbelieved out of hand by entrenched partisans.

Vance said...

Meanwhile, Inga's fellow Democrats 1) Got arrested for doxxing Senators Graham, Hatch, and Mike Lee; and 2) got arrested for sending ricin attacks to President Trump, the Pentagon, and Senator Cruz.

Inga, of course, is lamenting... that they didn't succeed. After all, if two Republican Senators get murdered, then Kavanaugh will not be confirmed! Totally, totally worth it, right Inga? The left in this country has made it crystal clear they consider murdering their political opponents to be not only a viable strategy but a preferred one.

Rick said...

Only the left argues one side should be believed based on their genitals rather than the facts. As usual Inga has to lie because the truth doesn't support her absurd positions.

This will be an historic own goal by Democrats,

If they had been honest and just voted no, but no libel, they might well have taken the House.

I don't think the Senate was really in play.

Now, I think this could be a slaughter and nobody deserves it more.

1994, here we come.

To her, Ford “overplayed her hand as the scattered and scared fragile female”: The professor’s “glasses were filthy and oversized, she looked scared and frazzled, [and] she refused to fix her hair caught in her glasses,” says Scott. “It was a purposeful disheveled look.”...

Ah, I'm not the only one. to me, her testimony felt...manipulative. The little girl voice and mannerisms, fake crying - I couldn't believe so many were taken in by something that obvious.

But I struggled with her story before. Having had my own near rape in high school, I find it hard to understand how she's lost so much of the key details of her story. As someone who's stood in those shoes, it didn't feel right to me. I remember almost everything about that night and about that attack.

You look ridiculous making your statement.

Big Mike said...

About time! I find it easy to believe that the hard-drinking, boy-chasing party girl from Holton-Arms School got in over her head while drunk at an unsupervised party, but no one but her thinks the boy was Brett Kavanaugh, her own friends least of all.

rhhardin said...

It's nothing about Ford's testimony, just that the probabilities hugely favor Kavanaugh. To turn that you need really good evidence. Bayes theorem.

Achilles said...

I’d say normal women love their daughters, mothers, sisters, as much as their sons, husbands and fathers. They don’t want their honorable daughters disbelieved out of hand by entrenched partisans

Pure bullshit.

Blasey Ford can’t remember when, where, who else was there, how she got to or from the party or even what year it happened.

If you gave two shits about women being believed you would call this obvious lie out.

But you don’t care and it is obvious to everyone what you disgusting poeces of shit are up to.

Unknown said...

Apparently female Democratic legislators (not to mention two-time presidential losers) can only identify with women who dress either as characters out of a dystopian novel or as genitalia.

They no longer have a clue as to how normal, honest women who care for and love the men in their lives regard such circuses as their party has pushed upon us the last several weeks. And they clearly underestimate how skilled such women are at cutting through or seeing through the BS.

rhhardin said...

Really really good men can get away on probabilities alone with raping women, but on the other hand they don't tend to be the ones raping women. A nonproblem. Bayes works.

Achilles said...

readering said...

Good joke!

rhhardin said...

Women stick with soap opera. It's just a matter of which soap opera.

Guys just work the odds, with no account necessary for what Ford's up to. It doesn't matter what she's up to.

rhhardin said...

All the claims of women loving their sons and husbands and damaging the credibility of real rape victims are plays to women. Fighting one soap opera with another soap opera.

Odds are plays to men. Nobody's playing to men.

readering said...

Sounds like the vote will go through. Then there will be all kinds of reporting about deficiencies in the FBI investigation.

rhhardin said...

The reason you want odds is that you want the truth. Which soap opera covers it is immaterial.

Trick for women trying to reason: replace "rape" with "mugging" and reason about that.

That cuts out most of the soap opera temptation. At least I think it does.

walter said...

I await the pics of Doc Ford skydiving.

LilyBart said...

.(adding to the above)... In fact, I laughed out loud when she said, "It's seared into my mind"

But she doesn't remember where it happened, or when it happened, how she came to be there, or how she got home. Seriously? My initial theory was that something happened to her, but it wasn't as bad as she was saying. She decided it was something more than it was later, but by then, the details of the night had faded.

However, over time, I've some to believe she was more calculating that that - No one else, even her BFF, remembers the 'party', her fake demeanor at the hearing, combined with the timeline disconnect between the story she's telling now, and the story we heard was in the famous 'therapist's notes'. Plus there is the lie about fear of flying - quite a manipulative lie, I might add. And now the double front door story is in question.

Whatever did nor did not happen to her, I think its unlikely that Kavanaugh tried to rape her in an upstairs bedroom in the Summer of 1982. And I think what has been done to this man is a travesty. And I do think it was politically motivated, maybe not by Ford, but it was definitely political. Ford may have just been a tool - perhaps a willing tool.

walter said...

I also await a video or audio of her speaking on prior to all this.

Ralph L said...

Ford needed time to lose weight and wattle.

It was a case of her having false memories. She's not confused. There is no PTSD. Nope, this was a planned hit. Assisted by the Democrats and their minions. All involved need to pay.

rhhardin said...

What's fun about Althouse is that she remains a woman but with logical training, and gets into tangled force messes where a guy would not.

Logic winds up trying to work in service of the woman's point of view.

That's my sense of humor.

rhhardin said...

Logic goes into a lashing-out mode when it supports a woman.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“They no longer have a clue as to how normal, honest women who care for and love the men in their lives regard such circuses as their party has pushed upon us the last several weeks. And they clearly underestimate how skilled such women are at cutting through or seeing through the BS.”

More nonsense. You seriously think liberal women don’t get married, love their husbands and sons every bit as much as conservative women? This is something you are imagining because it fits with your narrative.

Big Mike said...

@LilyBart, and you are far from the only woman who has been through a horrific experience and finds that Ford’s haziness with the details does not ring true. I can readily understand why young Christine Blasey wouldn’t report the incident at the time — admitting to her parents that she was off to a house party with no parents home might have gotten her grounded for days of weeks. And tattling, considering that her clothes weren’t even torn and she wasn’t raped, would have dried up the party invitations and destroyed her popularity at school. So we can stipulate that she had reasons, bad ones but understandable for a teenaged girl aspiring to popularity not to report the incident at the time. But! I have not heard of any woman who was genuinely attacked and who is hazy on the details. Even the unfortunate women zapped with date rape drugs remember more about the where and the when than Christine Ford about her allegedly life altering incident.

etbass said...

Inga, you clearly believe in Ford’s accusation. Would you mind sharing why you believe her?

Rabel said...

"I also await a video or audio of her speaking on prior to all this."

It's truly amazing that something along those lines hasn't seen the light of day.

LilyBart said...

Just consider how manipulative that 'fear of flying' lie was. She couldn't just say she was uncomfortable flying (an easily debunked claim, btw), no, she had to assign her fear to the 'attack'. Don't tell me she didn't know her lawyers were saying this - of course she did.

Francisco D said...

Ford may have just been a tool - perhaps a willing tool.

As I surmised from the beginning, she is a co-conspirator.

Phony from the getgo.

Left wingers don't apply standards to themselves.

JAORE said...

If she really had an on-line scrubbing only a Google type entity could accomplish, does that make the FBI investigation.

I think it should.

I can see deleting my on-line accounts to avoid the potential backlash. But, if true, the type of erasure described? Nope that's premeditated hiding of evidence. C'mon FBI, show us your cyber security chops.

Vance said...

Today's leftists want you to know two things: If the target is a Republican, then everyone should believe 35 year old evidence free unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault, because Republican Judges always seem to only assault Democrat partisan women. But if the target is a Democrat, like Keith Ellison, then unless actual videotape emerges taken during the assault, the official Democrat party position is "It didn't happen."

So: Democrat men, rape all you want--as long as there's not a video, you're good. Right Inga?

James K said...

As someone who's stood in those shoes, it didn't feel right to me. I remember almost everything about that night and about that attack.

Part of the problem is that even what she described seems rather far from an "attempted rape." So if she didn't make it up out of whole cloth (leaving aside the identity of who was involved), it probably was not that big of a deal until she decided to make it something bigger 36 years later.

Big Mike said...

You seriously think liberal women don’t get married, love their husbands and sons every bit as much as conservative women?

Based on the liberal and conservative women I have known in my life, I have to answer this question on the negative.

Ken B said...

Rhhardin rightly cites Bayes's Theorem. I would be surprised if Ann could state it.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“Inga, you clearly believe in Ford’s accusation. Would you mind sharing why you believe her?”

Before her testimony I was unsure. After her testimony and Kavanugh’s testimony, I believed her. Kavanugh behaved as if he got caught and was enraged and he looked like he felt entitled to sit on the Supreme Court because he was a good boy( ha). He lied about the meanings of boof, devils triangle and the meaning of Renate alumnius, why? His over the top anger and self pitying tears were very very odd. Ford’s demeanor, while appearing frightened, seemed more credible. She had the names of the people who were at the house correct. What reason would she have to lie, unless you believe in some grand Democratic conspiracy.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“Based on the liberal and conservative women I have known in my life, I have to answer this question on the negative.”

Then you don’t know many liberal women.

Sounds like my wife. She has been appalled by the Democrats on the SJC ("These are about the dumbest people I have ever seen. How did they ever get elected to anything?"). She's mad as hell. And she used to not care that much about politics. I think that has permanently changed.

Did I ever mention that I once woke up in a D.C. hotel, in an obviously drugged state?

No? Well let me tell you what a horrifying experience it was! Scarred for life, I am!

Here I was, being screwed at both ends rotissery-style by Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, both wearing strap-ons, while Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood over me and peed all over me!

As the victim, you are obligated to believe me. No investigation is necessary! Nay, any investigation would just force me to relive the whole deranged experience all over again. Have you no heart, no compassion? Let the impeachment hearings for all three begin (followed by three Trump appointments to replace them, but we'll keep that on the down-low)!

Did I mention that Titus was there? I'm sure he'll deny it, but he sat there and watched the whole thing!

Inga...Allie Oop said...

Kavanaugh also lied about the amount he drank and probably lied about having blackouts. His roommates and friends have said he was a huge drinker.

Also, be aware, if Kavanaugh gets pushed through, despite everything, the Senate as well as the House will be won by Democrats.

Todd Galle said...

I work in a very liberal field, and none of the women I work with have said squat about this. If this is such a Dem winning point, they're awful quiet. It might be me, everyone knows I'm on the right, but they never worried about needling that kind of stuff before, and to be fair, it's a back and forth. This however, has kept them unusually quiet. I'm Judge K's contemporary, graduated HS in 1983, college in 87, not Yale but solid Div III place, also in a fraternity. Been in a bar fight, got college probation for presenting a rifle at college security officers (long story), was cited by the National Park Service for public theft (later I was hired by the NPS as a park ranger), etc. If you lived then, I think this is your reality - life wasn't online and you could screw up and recover. I can't and won't deny anything, and I don't think the Judge did either. It's sad that kids can't be kids anymore.

James K said...

Oh please, Anita Hill made her career off her claim about Clarence Thomas. If Ford was able to take down Kavanaugh she would be folk hero to the left. What reason did Sabrina Erdely have to lie? Or Crystal Mangum? Or Susan Shannon?

Right. I don’t have the EVIDENCE. You don’t have the EVIDENCE. Ford has the evidence (if there is any) and she needs to provide it.

MountainMan said...

"I believed her. "

Why? She cannot give a date or location for what happened. She has offered up at least 7 different approximate times it could have happened, which cover almost the entire decade of the 1980s. The people she identified as being there have all denied, under oath, that it ever occurred. She lied about not being able to fly. She may have lied regarding the polygraph. And she definitely lied about the addition of a second door in 2012. The permit for the addition of the second door was issued in 2008 and the work was completed by 2010. It was so they could rent out a portion of their house to others. It had nothing to do with her fear or with going to the therapist. She didn't tell anyone at the time and did not file a complaint with law enforcement. No DA would ever pursue this case.

"What reason would she have to lie, unless you believe in some grand Democratic conspiracy."

Because it is a grand Democratic conspiracy to anyone who has a brain. Only the true believers like you buy into their bullshit. What is she getting? How about getting paid about $1M for her trouble by laundering contributions through GoFundMe. Her social media was professionally scrubbed to hide her pussy-hat Trump hate. Her lawyers may be sanctioned. This was a setup hit job from the get-go, to be put into effect when the hearings didn't turn up anything. I could go on but I have wasted too much time on you already.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

As I said OM, NONE of us have evidence and we ALL are going with our instincts and partisan bias, some of us more than others.

Pillage Idiot said...

I am incapable of understanding the female perspective on sexual assault and rape. I do not understand why females are not incandescently outraged at the actions of Blasey Ford.

Dr. Ford is a moral coward and rape enabler. By her own testimony, she believed that she was in imminent danger of sexual assault and that her life was in danger. Once free, she ran out of the house to leave her female friend alone with males she believed to be rapists and potential killers.

If a male left a party where he thought a rape was likely to occur and never notified the authorities, then he would be forever stained as a pariah.

Why then is a female not reviled for the same behavior? Surely a female is more in tune with the ramifications of a rape.

My eldest daughter was severely physically assaulted by a (then) boyfriend. Her immediate resolve was to work with all of the local authorities available to make sure he never did it to her or any other women for a long time. Her anxiety dropped an order of magnitude after his sorry ass was in jail.

I hopefully will never be confronted with the emotional devastation of surviving a rape. However, every time I was bullied as a youth, it gave me greater resolve to protect others from bullying.

Feel free to bash my "male" perspective all you want. However, if Blasey Ford's account is true, then I cannot fathom how once she was safe, she did not immediately rush to the police to protect a female friend from the same depredations she had just escaped.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

Ford provided what she had in her memory. It’s unreasonable for anyone to expect her to provide the exact date.

Todd Roberson said...

I work with numerous women everyday and they strike me as strong and self-assured people.

That's why I think if I were a woman, I'd get pretty damn tired of politicians and the media constantly telling me I'm a victim.

Mr. Majestyk said...

Liberals keep saying that Kavanaugh acted like he was entitled to a seat on the Court. That's not at all how it appeared to me. It appeared to me like he was outraged that false accusations of sexual assault and even gang rape were being hauled out at the last minute when the Democrats' attempted "good old-fashioned Borking" looked like it wasn't going to work. The anger was entirely justified. As for his tears, I didn't see them as self-pitying (for example, the tears upon telling the story of his daughter suggesting that she and her mother pray for Ford can hardly be described as self-pitying).

As for the meaning of "Devil's Triangle," if he fibbed it surely wasn't a material falsehood, as the meanings of words in high school yearbooks have no bearing on a person's fitness for the Supreme Court after decades of exemplary public service. The questions on the yearbook were just more of the Democrats' search and destroy tactics.

yes, they are either wrong or misguided. They have no Advice and Consent obligation. Neither do you or I. We can vote for Senators to utilize their Constitutional role.

Makes no difference.

We do have evidence in this matter --

"In the law, testimony is a form of evidence that is obtained from a witness who makes a solemn statement or declaration of fact. Testimony may be oral or written, and it is usually made by oath or affirmation under penalty of perjury."

My husband noticed in his testimony, he said, "I have been ruined".

He will never, no matter what happens, get out from under this mud that has been slung on him. He will never have his life back. His wife and his kids will carry this shame too. Those little girls - when ever they go to school, join a dance group or soccer team, apply to college, apply for a job, meet their boyfriends' parents - THIS will be what the people around them will be thinking about.

He knows all this. And in the face of this, I think he showed incredible restraint - more restrain that most people would have shown. I think his restrain was admirable. .

They didn’t all deny, IIRC they said they had no memory. The female said she believed Ford, but had no memory. That was a long time ago and why would they remember if they weren’t the ones who were assaulted?

Inga...Allie Oop said...
Ford provided what she had in her memory. It’s unreasonable for anyone to expect her to provide the exact date.


Nobody expects an exact date. It seems every argument Inga comes up with is an effort to misstate reality. Originally Ford said she was in her late teens in the mid eighties. This is not an exact date. Then she switched to 1982 when she was 15.

Apparently Ford couldn't remember whether she was a freshman or a senior.


Inga...Allie Oop said...
As I said OM, NONE of us have evidence

Ford’s demeanor, while appearing frightened, seemed more credible. She had the names of the people who were at the house correct.

You are stupid.

But you aren't that stupid.

We see right through you.

iowan2 said...

Kavanaugh also lied about the amount he drank and probably lied about having blackouts. His roommates and friends have said he was a huge drinker.

Facts not in evidence.

FBI background checks contact all the people the subject comes into contact with. Neighbors work associates,College roommates, gym mates, pickup basketball game buddies...you get the idea. What you have to believe, is the FBI wasn't intuitive enough to pick up on Kavanaughs drinking.

"That’s nonsense too, males seem to have a growing victim mentality more than women nowadays."

Ok, sure. But I don't see many politicians or media constantly reminding men about their victimhood. In fact, the protesters and idiot talking heads (i.e. Hirono) seem to think men should shut up.

That's the part I think is patronizing and that's the part I think is set to backfire in the face of the politicians doing it.

As a husband and father teenaged girls I can assure you that they're not victims and don't like being patronized by being told they are.

Michael said...

There are a hell of a lot more "conservative women" than the press would like to imagine. Ordinary women with no political ax to grind have sons and brothers and husbands who they can picture as victims of nutcases popping up. More importantly they have daughters they have taught to report instances of abuse. They have taught them to be strong and that their victimhood has a half life.

The Kavanaugh had blackouts is a lefty meme, recently invented.

Ordinary decent women also know that when their daughters have had trouble the one beer notion is bullshit.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

“As a husband and father teenaged girls I can assure you that they're not victims and don't like being patronized by being told they are.”

As a mother of three grown daughters I’m happy to say they were never victims either. No one told them they were victims, if they weren’t. They would be considered “victims” if they were assaulted. It’s an apt term if the situation warranted it. Get a dictionary.

Mr. Majestyk said...

More reason to be angry at the Democrats. Remember how they larded up the post-hearing written questions for Kavanaugh to something like 1200 questions, more than all previous nominees combined? I bet they did that so Grassley would not schedule a committee vote for a while, which is what happened. This allowed Feinstein's Operation Crazy Lady to begin and metastisize enough to cause a delay in the committee's vote. This suggests that all the Democrats on the Committee were in on the operation.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

Thirty six years ago and she remembers one beer
Forget the memory lapses about the willingness of the committee to visit her in California
Forget the timing of the placement of the door and neglect to mention that the house has tenants who use the new door
Forget the fear of flying lie
Forget that she knew how to contact her congresswoman but did not know how to contact Feinstein

It is no wonder the Democrat members of the committee have more or less tossed her under the bus

But she will get a book deal and a better gig at a real university. And speaking fees. Because there will be a legion of Ingas who will pay to see the Joan of Arc who almost saved RvW

Inga claims to be an ordinary credible woman? The same Inga that took an entire year to decide that shooting Republicans in cold blood was not a good thing? The same Inga who claims Christians are plotting to put women in chains but we need to import millions of Muslim men? The same Inga who vehemently defends Ted Kennedy as a "Lion of the Senate?"

The same Inga who swears up and down you should never, ever believe a man who has been accused of sexual harassment or abuse, unless that man is a Democrat; in which case it's the woman who should never ever be believed.

Most of us are married to ordinary decent women who are not sjw harridans willing to believe every bullshit story. Tawana Brawley ruined the life of a man, the Duke Lacrosse players were slandered, the fraternity boys at UVA were slandered. And in each and every one of those cases ordinary decent women saw bullshit at the outset. The stories were too too in line with the then current narratives. There are legions of stories of college men whose lives have been altered by women deciding that they would take their revenge, would step into the heroine victim mode. Ordinary decent women are on to this. And they are pissed.

Known Unknown said...

All I know is 50 million Elvis fans can't be wrong.

Vance said...

I'm hearing voices, Inga? Do tell. You certainly took a year--well, 11 months-- to decide that Hodgkinson killing Republicans was bad. You have repeatedly claimed that keeping Muslims out of the US is bigotry, hatred, racism.... no matter how many want to come. And you have spewed hysterics about evil Republican Christians trying to stop LGBT, Roe v. Wade, and wanting to put women barefoot and pregnant.

And in this thread, and others, you have vehemently attacked anyone who says Ford has no evidence and likely is lying. You have accused us of not believing women, saying "what about your own wives and daughters!" I.E. you think all women should be believed about sexual abuse claims.

On the other hand, you haven't said a word about Ellison, about Menendez, about Laurer and all the rest of the Democrat men who rape and abuse women. The Democrat party of Minnesota announced that unless there was actual video evidence taken during the abuse of women by Ellision, he is innocent. This despite the medical and hospital evidence produced. You've not said a word--surely you agree with the Minnesota Democrat party on the amount of evidence required to even think about Ellison beating and abusing women. Democrat men get to abuse and rape women, and you don't care. It's obvious you don't care. You tried to protect Franken. Bill Clinton is one of your heroes. Oh, sure, when pushed very hard you'll say something weak and anodyne like "I don't support beating women" when referring to one of the many, many Democrat abusers of women. But it's nothing like your full fledged attacks on Kavanaugh and Moore (notice, btw, that all of Moore's accusers vanished instantly, job done?).If Ted Kennedy ran for office today, we all know you would pull the lever for him and smile while doing so--despite Mary Jo Kopechne.

cubanbob said...

What these Feminist Communists in their ginned up faux outrage yada, yada, yada forget to consider is that there are hundreds of thousands if not millions of men who see Ford and the other accusers as their evil, nasty, lying ex-wives and girlfriends. The ones who filed false police reports against them. Or filed fake abuse and or fake child abuse allegations in their divorce proceedings. Or had kids with some other guy and claimed them to be the father and were awarded child support. The guys can also get motivated to vote as well.

Thanks for the heads up readering.

Dr Weevil said...

The idea that a slang term can only have one meaning is demonstrably false. From watching Beavis & Butthead, I know that 'cornhole' is quite a filthy bit of slang, but here in the Shenandoah Valley 'cornhole' is a G-rated game closely related to beanbag. A cornhole bag is just a loose cloth bag partly filled with a handful or two of (I assume) dried corn kernels. Contestants toss the bags at a hole in a board, usually painted like a clown with his mouth open or something like that. In other words, beanbag, but with corn instead of beans. You can see signs in small towns advertising 'cornhole bags' and 'cornhole boards' for sale, and rural grade schools and middle schools will advertise 'cornhole contests' as if they are entirely unaware of any filthy meaning of the word. Any adults who know the Beavis & Butthead meaning are careful not to mention it to the children. Could 'boof' and 'Devil's Triangle' be two other words with both filthy and non-filthy meanings? It seems more than likely. If so, the supposed proof that Kavanaugh is lying is yet another leftie lie.

BOMBS AWAY!

“This is a bombshell that unequivocally shows the real collusion was between the FBI and Donald Trump’s opposition — the DNC, Hillary and a Trump-hating British intel officer — to hijack the election, rather than some conspiracy between Putin and Trump,” a knowledgeable source told me.

Baker was interviewed by lawmakers behind closed doors on Wednesday. Sources declined to divulge his testimony, other than to say it confirmed other evidence about the contact between the Perkins Coie law firm and the FBI.

The sources also said Baker’s interview broke new ground both about the FBI’s use of news media in 2016 and 2017 to further the Trump case and about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s conversations in spring 2017 regarding possible use of a body wire to record Trump.

“The interview was one of the most productive we had and it opened up many new investigative leads,” one source said.

Anyone else notice that Inga completely ignores the idea that women don't want their husbands/sons/fathers/brothers destroyed by bitter lying vengeful bitches? She cannot even conceive of the idea that a woman might be upset at that! She simply cannot consider that most women were not the queen bee bitches in high school, and in fact resented them. Who hated the high school cheerleaders? Other women, not the men. Who resented the lying skanks from high school? The girls who saw their brother get hurt by one, or had their own reputation attacked by gossiping, lying freaks who were the "elites."

Now they see Ford doing exactly that. Inga thinks all women automatically support Ford? No way. Why would most women believe the same kind of girl/accusations that they hated in high school and college?

I believe there are about 17,000 law professors in the USA. So 16,350 of them did not sign that letter. Are they all wrong? There's nothing objective about this. They're opinions. Since I do want Kavanaugh on the courts, yes, I think all 650 are wrong.

William said...

I went to a Jesuit high school and got pass out drunk a few times in my youth, albeit not in high school. By any observable metric, I'm a worse human being than Kavanaugh. Despite my general moral sepsis, I have never come close to raping a woman. It's quite a quantum jump to go from excessive drinking to attempted rape......I suppose it could happen. High school kids have moments when they do stupid shit. But other scenarios are just as plausible. People have recovered memories that are shaped by their biases.......Would any here convict Kavanaugh in a court of law based on such testimony? Nonetheless, so many are willing to rob the man of his career, honor, and reputation based on the imprecise memories of someone with an axe to grind.

Saner Democratic heads drowned out by the moonbats. Trump owns the “right to actually work” issue and “economic empowerment” BTW.

Democratic strategist Don Calloway on Thursday said that he does not think Democrats should impeach Trump if they win back the House in November.

"I don't think we should impeach in general," Calloway, founder and CEO of Pine Street Strategies, told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti on "Rising."

"I think that impeachment emboldens the 'deplorables,' and folks will come out, in a way, against Democrats," he said.

Calloway said Democrats instead should focus on issues, such as right to work and economic empowerment.

I got a chuckle out of a made-up Kamala Harris quote from the always-on-target Babylon Bee, quoted in today's Instapundit:

As Sam Levenson used to say, "It's funny because it's true!"

Bob Loblaw said...

The Democrats would be crazy to impeach Trump unless they take a 2/3 majority in the Senate. It's already obvious the point is to reverse the 2016 election, not remove a president who's committed an impeachable offense, so you can expect Republican Senators to vote in a block against removal.

I think they might still do it. It's clear the Democratic base is living in a reality very different from the rest of us, and Democratic politicians have to mollify that base somehow. The Republicans paid an enormous political price for impeaching Bill Clinton, and they had a much better case.

Bob Loblaw said...

"What reason would she have to lie, unless you believe in some grand Democratic conspiracy."

You don't need to look that far. She's a hard left activist who thinks seating Kavanaugh on the court would be a disaster for the left's project to turn SCOTUS into a superlegislature that implements policies she likes. She wants to keep him off the court for ideological reasons.

There are probably at least a few hundred thousand Democrats out there who would be willing to trade their self respect to accomplish that goal.
