Another Woman Accusing Kavanaugh Of Sexual Assault

New Kavanaugh Accuser Deborah Ramirez

A bombshell piece by the New Yorker says yet another woman has come forwatd accusing Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.




The woman Deborah Ramirez, Kavanaugh’s classmate at Yale says in 1983-84 when Kavanaugh was a freshman, after a night of partying, he exposed himself to her then forced her head onto his penis and forced her to touch it against her will.

Like in the case of Kavanaugh’s previous accuser Christine Blasey Ford, if this new allegation holds up it will be yet another clear cut case of sexual assault against Kavanaugh and needless to say, an automatic disqualifier for his Supreme Court prospects.

Because this is still a developing story, Yours Truly will accord TeamKavanaugh due process and wait for their response. It goes without saying however that given everything that has transpired so far in Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, this new allegation will most likely kill his chances of ascending to the U.S Supreme Court. There’s simply no way the two crucial female GOP Senators Susan Collins(ME) and Lisa Murkowski(AK) can overlook two accusations of sexual assault against Kavanaugh.

Was Kavanaugh Involved In Crafting Conspiracy Theory?

A very interesting segment on MSNBC’s AMJoy show explored whether Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was involved in crafting the conspiracy theory that the incident involving Christine Blasey Ford happened but Kavanaugh was not the assailant. According to the host Joy Reid, this claim was first put out there by Sen Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee when he said Ms Ford was “mistaken”. This was then closely followed by tweets from Ed Whelan, a well known GOP operative who actively said it was someone else involved in the incident and not Kavanaugh.

The full AM Joy segment is available here, but the relevant clip is below

So you ask–“What’s the big deal @Emolclause? Like everyone else, they were just speculating. The alleged incidents happened decades ago and nobody knows what actually happened. There’s nothing wrong with speculation.”
Here’s why its a big deal. As the panelists on AM Joy show correctly pointed out, the series of events leading to this “it was someone else” theory makes it highly likely that the Trump White House, the GOP members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and potentially Kavanaugh worked together to craft this conspiracy theory to essentially mislead the public about a very consequential matter–an attempted rape. This is a very big deal, which as one of the panelists Tiffany Cross correctly points out should be investigated by the FBI. If the FBI finds out that Kavanaugh was in any way involved in the crafting of this conspiracy theory, that should immediately kill his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.



Bottom line Dems should not just insist that the FBI investigate whether Kavanaugh committed attempted rape as Christine Blassey Ford alleges, they should seriously look into whether he was involved in crafting this conspiracy theory. At the next Senate Judiciary hearing, Dems must really pester Kavanaugh with questions about the origins and circulation of this conspiracy theory. If he was involved, that in itself should kill his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh’s Alma Mater Yale Law Wants FBI Involved

Some 50 Yale Law students and faculty have made a formal request in the form of a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee urging the Senators to have the FBI look into the serious allegations raised by Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford. Kavanaugh attended Yale Law so it is a very big deal that his own Alma Mater wants the FBI to look into Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations. Here are some of the excerpts from the Yale Law letter:

“As the Senate Judiciary Committee debates Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, we write as faculty members of Yale Law School, from which Judge Kavanaugh graduated, to urge that the Senate conduct a fair and deliberate confirmation process,”

“With so much at stake for the Supreme Court and the nation, we are concerned about a rush to judgment that threatens both the integrity of the process and the public’s confidence in the Court.”



Bottom line folks its one thing when Senate Democrats or even #TheResistance libs clamor for an immediate pause to Kavanaugh’s confirmation as a result of Ms Ford’s serious allegations. However when Kavanaugh’s own alma mater, the highly prestigious Yale Law is calling for the same thing, there is no choice but to pause Kavanaugh’s confirmation process until such a time as the FBI has probed Ms Ford’s serious allegations. As the Yale Law students and faculty correctly put it, the U.S. Supreme Court confirmation process “must always be conducted, and appointments made, in a manner that gives Americans reason to trust the court.” What Sen Chuck Grassley and his fellow GOP Senators are doing in regards to Kavanaugh only makes Americans mistruct the U.S. Supreme Court–a sad state of affairs indeed.

Top Voting Machine Vendor Lied About Remote Access Software


One of the leading voting machine vendors ES&S has just made a bombshell admission that they did indeed sell voting machines with remote access software to roughly 300 jurisdictions in the U.S. between 2000-2006.


Many people don’t know it, but there was a lot of controversy surrounding President George W. Bush’s election victories in 2000 and 2004, especially over how he won Ohio. This bombshell revelation by ES&S about remote access software is sure to reignite the 2000 & 2004 election controversies.





The biggest question raised by the ES&S revelation however has more to do with the 2016 elections than the 2000 & 2004 elections. The unavoidable question for ES&S now becomes, if they lied about remote access software in their machines from 2000-2006, how can they assure the public that their machines didn’t have the software in 2016, allowing the Russians to hack into them.?

Remember one of the arguments used by 2016 Russian election hacking deniers, especially GOP state Secretaries of State has been that the voting machines didn’t come with remote access software so there was no way the Russians could have penetrated them. This stunning revelation by ES&S pokes holes into that defense and should be cause for a renewed debate as to what actually happened in the 2016 elections as regards Russian hacking.

Yours Truly is particularly interested in the battleground states of MI, WI, PA & FL. Which of these 300 jurisdictions mentioned were in these battleground states?

Bottomline Dems and the mainstream media need to really get to the bottom of this bombshell ES&S revelation to find out if the Russians used ES&S remote access software to hack into voting machines and thereby alter vote tallies.

Unverifiable Votes Played Huge Role In GOP’s Upset “Win” In Texas



A shocking upset “win” by GOP’s Pete Flores in Texas Senate District 19 has again brought to the forefront the troubling debate as to why in 2018, with all the fears of Russian hacking, Texas is still using unverifiable voting machines to conduct its elections. Election integrity advocate Jennifer Cohn went behind the numbers of Pete Flores “poll defying” win and as is always the case with GOP’s upset election wins, there appears to be some chicanery involved. Jennifer Cohn’s excellent thread goes into the details of Pete Flores’ upset win, but it all boils down to this one Tweet.

17 Texas counties voted in the Texas Senate District 19 race. GOP’s Pete Flores received 23,576 votes to the Dem’s 20,911 votes(a 2,665 vote margin).


But here’s where it gets really fishy. Turns out that 2 counties out of the 17 use totally paperless, unverifiable voting machines. It is from these two counties(Bexar and Brewster) that half of the roughly 44,000 votes cast came from. Even more importantly, the GOP candidate “defied the polls” in blue Bexar county garnering 10,215 votes to the Dem’s 11,915 votes–and therein lies the GOP election chicanery you must not miss.

Folks if you miss everything else do not miss this because this is how the GOP “defies the polls” using unverifiable voting machines. Bexar County is a reliably blue county(San Antonio area). As Yours Truly warned you in a previous post, the GOP “>has packed Bexar and many other blue counties with unverifiable paperless voting machines. So in “poll defying” GOP wins like the one that happened in Texas Senate District 19, most people just look at the fact that the Dem candidate carried Bexar County and overlook the more important question as to how the GOP candidate got so much votes in this blue county. And there’s the trick–nobody knows/can verify just who in reliably blue Bexar county voted for GOP’s Pete Flores in his “upset” win. Think about that folks, the GOP candidate for Texas Senate District 19 won the election by a 2,665 margin but the 10,215 votes he got in blue Bexar county, a strangely high number, cannot be verified. Folks this is exactly why we must have election machines that leave a verifiable paper trail.


This trick is also very effective in Texas statewide elections–for Governor and U.S. Senate races and Texas High Courts. As Jennifer Cohn correctly points out, Dems should be very concerned about the upcoming Beto v Ted Cruz U.S. Senate race.


In Texas it is well known that when it comes to statewide races, “it’s the metroplexes stupid.” Whoever performs very well in the metroplexes–Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio wins the statewide races. The Texas metroplexes vote overwhelmingly for Dem candidates but the Texas GOP has figured out a way to deal with that– pack the metroplexes(Dem urban counties like Harris, Dallas, Tarrant etc) with unverifiable voting machines. After that it just becomes a game of numbers.

A Dem statewide candidate for example almost always wins in counties that house the big cities like Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. The fact that is often overlooked however is the number of votes the Republican candidate got in these metroplexes–usually unverifiable due to unverifiable voting machines. In other words when the election results come around most people just look at the fact that the Dem candidate won say Harris county(Houston area) but forget to ask the more important question which is, “how the hell did the Republican get so much votes in blue Harris county?” We just witnessed this scenario in Texas Senate District 19. The Dem won blue Bexar county as was expected with 11,915 votes but nobody knows/can verify how the hell GOP’s Pete Flores got 10,215 votes in blue Bexar county leading to his 2,665-margin upset “win”. Sadly as it stands right now there is no way to answer these questions–a totally unacceptable standard for deciding very consequential elections in 2018.

Bottom line, Texas’ unverifiable voting machines present a clear and present danger for Dems in the 2018 elections and beyond. How/why the DNC continues to remain silent on this grave issue is at this juncture, a serious dereliction of duty. These are questions the DNC could easily take up with the Texas Secretary of State and indeed other state Secretaries of State nationwide but will not do so. Strange indeed!!

Kavanaugh Admits Secrecy Culture At Georgetown High School


Brett Kavanaugh & Mark Judge

After Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford came forward with explosive allegations of attempted rape while the two were in high school, the debate has predictably boiled down to who is to be believed, with the GOP largely siding with Kavanaugh and Democrats with Christine Blasey Ford.




Turns out however that it is Kavanaugh’s own words that may/should sink his nomination.
Yours Truly just stumbled into a newly released video of Kavanaugh in which he revelled in the fact that “what happens at Georgetown Prep (his high school)stays at Georgetown Prep.”


This is the smoking gun of smoking gun evidence and Dems must nail him with it.

Bottom line, while it is hard to ascertain definitively what happened decades ago, the fact that Kavanaugh himself openly admits in this video that there was a culture of secrecy at his high school, for which he takes pride in, should be enough for any reasonable person to believe Christine Blasey Ford’s account of the events and sink Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Desperate Ted Cruz Campaign Resorts To Mail Fraud


In a recent post Yours Truly made the argument that given the stolen user information Ted Cruz’s campaign obtained from Cambridge Analytica, plus the fact that the campaign potentially received money funneled through the NRA by Russia, Ted Cruz was literally running an illegal campaign.


Well turns out we have yet another illegal conduct to add on to the Cruz campaign’s rap sheet and that is mail fraud.

It appears the desperate Cruz campaign has resorted to scaring Texas seniors into sending them donations. The campaign is apparently sending Texas seniors a letter that purports to be a court summons. Scared Texas seniors fearing this is a court document requiring them to make the payment then send the money to the Cruz campaign–an out and out scam.


Bottom line the Ted Cruz campaign is already engaged in borderline illegal conduct given the Cambridge Analytica and NRA scandals. It is about time the Beto camp and the mainstream media took the Cruz campaign to task about its borderline illegal tactics.

Kavanaugh Accuser Must Testify Before The Senate

Christine Blasey Ford & Brett Kavanaugh

The woman accusing Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual impropriety while the two were in high school has come out and given an interview to the Washington Post.


The 51 year old Christine Blasey Ford, now a Research Psychologist in California said now that her once private story is out there, she wants to be the one to tell it in her own words.

So what does this mean for the Kavanaugh confirmation process? Dems must immediately demand a halt to the vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee scheduled for this coming Thursday. Kavanaugh’s accuser deserves to be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee before any vote is cast as to his confirmation. Americans also deserve to hear from Kavanaugh’s accuser but more importantly, see how Kavanaugh responds under penalty of perjury to her accusations.

Bottom line Dems should insist that Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings be reopened and that Kavanaugh’s accuser testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee before any vote is taken.

Hillary Clinton Removed From Texas History Curriculum

A troubling report first appearing in the Dallas Morning News says that the Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) voted to remove Hillary Clinton from the History curriculum that is taught in Texas schools. According to Barbara Cargill, a Republican member of the SBOE, the decision to yank Clinton from the History curriculum was made by some “working group” and that all the GOP-controlled board did was just vote on the recommendation from the “work group”–in other words, don’t blame us, it’s the “work group” that did it.


The fact of the matter however is that the 15-member SBOE did vote on the issue and agreed that it was appropriate to yank Hillary Clinton, the first woman ever to win the presidential nomination from a major political party and win the popular vote in a U.S. presidential election, from the Texas History curriculum. It is also important to note that after SBOE’s decision to yank Hillary Clinton from the Texas History curriculum, a prominent Christian advocacy group, Texas Values, praised them for the move, which clearly suggests that there were other factors (political/religious) that affected SBOE’s decision. The Christian advocacy group reportedly said, “In Texas, you don’t mess with the Alamo and you don’t mess with our Christian heritage. We applaud the majority of the State Board of Education for doing the right thing by restoring our foundational rights and history.”

Bottom line there is good reason to suspect that the decision to yank Hillary Clinton from the Texas History curriculum was a political hit job by the Texas GOP. Because Hillary Clinton is a Dem stalwart, whose entire political career has been geared towards the advancement of women and women issues, Yours Truly is forced to do a “HANDY LIST” of the shameful Republicans in the Texas State Board of Education who appear hell bent on denying Texas students, especially young girls, the opportunity to learn about Hillary Clinton, one of the most accomplished women in U.S. political history. Here are the GOP members of the Texas SBOE.(the 5 Democrats on the board are not listed).

Bottom line folks we have to go to bat for Hillary Clinton. The GOP working in conjunction with Putin’s Russia already robbed her of the presidency. We cannot stand idly by as the same GOP now tries to yank her from her rightful place in U.S. history.

GOP Candidates Being Recruited To Primary Trump In 2020


Turns out that while Trump is flexing his political muscles promising his adoring fans that he will crush any future Democratic opponent, efforts are underway within his own GOP to primary him in 2020. According to a CNBC article, conservative columnist and prominent NeverTrumper Bill Kristol is apparently actively recruiting Republicans to primary Trump in 2020, a move that is certain to enrage the criticism averse Trump. He has apparently talked to Gov John Kasich(Ohio), Sen Ben Sassse(Neb) and Sen Jeff Flake(AZ) about a possible 2020 Trump primary challenge.


The NeverTrumpers have largely remained silent during Trump’s presidency but now with all the troubles, legal and otherwise, engulfing the Trump administration, they are starting to voice their opposition to his presidency again. This could prove highly problematic to the GOP establishment because Trump will certainly take opposition from within as “disloyal” rebellion and wage a fierce war against his critics.

Yours Truly, a political sage at this juncture has long predicted a GOP split before 2020 and this llatest development has all the markings of one.

My prediction however has been that it is Romney who will primary Trump and TrumpRussia will be central to his challenge

It will be interesting to see how the GOP civil war plays out as we approach 2020. Bottom line when it does finally happen just remind the cable TV pundits that grassroots @Emolclause called it a long time ago. Remember folks, it is Mitt Romney who will give Trump a run for his money, leading to the GOP split.
