Sen Susan Collins’ Insult To Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

Fresh from perpetrating her “No Corroboration” fraud on Americans to get Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Sen Susan Collins(R-ME) showed up on CNN’s State of The Union to explain her highly suspicious YES vote. In her interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, Senator Collins essentially repeated the fraudulent “No Corroboration” theory she had previously laid out in her 45 minute nationally televised speech Friday. The CNN State of The Union segment is available here but the relevant clip is below.

She however brought up a new concept in her interview with Dana Bash which Yours Truly considers a total insult to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and that is, that Dr. Ford was assaulted by “someone else”, not by Kavanaugh. So you ask. “But @Emolclause, how is that an insult to Dr. Ford?” Here’s why. We all remember very well that during her sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Dr. Ford said very clearly that she was 100% certain that it was Kavanaugh who assaulted her. More importantly when asked by Senator Patrick Leahy(D-VT) what her strongest memory was of the decades old incident, Dr Ford responded that it was the “uproarious” laughter by Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge that still torments her to this date—Yours Truly talked about this in a previous post.

To believe Sen Collins’ new stance that “someone else” attacked Dr Ford, you also have to believe that the “uproarious” laughter Dr Ford tearfully testified torments her to this day either never happened or Mark Judge was laughing with “someone else”—a total insult. Think about that folks, in order to justify her fraudulent “No Corroboration” theory, Sen Collins now says Dr. Ford is being delusional when she talks about the “uproarious” laughter that still torments her to this day.

You don’t have to take Yours Truly’s word for it regarding Sen Collins’ insult to Dr. Ford. Dem Senator Mazie Hirono said the same thing when she appeared on the same show with Dana Bash.


Its also very important to point out that Dana Bash strangely never asked Senator Collins about Kavanaugh’s other accusers. Surely CNN’s Dana Bash knows that Dr Ford was not Kavanaugh’s only accuser. If Sen Collins thought there was “No Corroboration” re Dr. Ford , what does she think about Debbie Ramirez’s allegations? One would think MSM’s Dana Bash would challenge Sen Collins’ “No Corroboration” theory with questions about Ramirez and other accusers for example, Were they questioned by the FBI? If not, how can she credibly characterize the FBI investigation as “thorough” or “comprehensive”? and so on….

A lot of people waking up to watch Sen Collins’ first TV interview after the highly controversial Supreme Court confirmation expected these kinds of questions from MSM’s Dana Bash but predictably, it turned out be yet another terrible disappointment by the hapless MSM, which essentially gave Sen Collins a platform to justify her fraudulent “No Corroboration” theory.

Bottom line Sen Collins’ new stance that ” someone else” attacked Dr Ford is an insult to Dr Ford and indeed all other women survivors of sexual assault across the nation. It would be helpful if on her next interview someone in the MSM asks her about Ramirez and other Kavanaugh accusers and whether the supplemental FBI probe included them. More importantly the MSM should ask Sen Collins how she concluded that the FBI inquiry was “thorough” and “comprehensive” when it clearly left out a lot of willing witnesses—the aforementioned “No Corroboration” fraud.

The Seriousness Of Trump’s Attack On Dr Christine Blasey Ford

Yours Truly recently wrote about how the modern GOP has officially become the anti-woman party. Little did we know however that just a few days after that, President Trump would cement this GOP anti-woman legacy into history with his shameful attack on Dr Christine Blasey Ford, a sexual assault survivor, at one of his political rallies. Never would anyone have imagined that a sitting President of the United States would use the presidential podium to lobby verbal attacks at a sexual assault victim, whether they believed the allegations or not.

So you say, “But @Emolclause, Trump is an equal opportunity verbal attacker. It is very convenient how you are singling out the ‘seriousness’ of his verbal attack on Dr. Ford.” Well here’s why Trump’s attack on Dr.Ford is not only very serious, but also differs significantly from his verbal attacks on others. When Dr Ford appeared before the senate judiciary committee, she was asked by Sen Patrick Leahy (D-VT) what still hurts her the most about the decades old incident. Dr Ford responded that what she still remembers to this day is Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge laughing “at her expense”. Specifically Dr Ford said:
“Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter, the uproarious laughter between the two [Kavanaugh & Mark Judge], and their having fun at my expense.”

Well, Trump and his adoring fans at the Southaven, Mississippi rally did exactly that. Trump basically called Dr Ford a liar to “uproarious” applause from his fans, essentially punishing Dr Ford all over again. This is totally unacceptable and reprehensible behavior by anybody let alone a sitting President of the United States. Even in the hyper partisan political times we find ourselves in, all reasonable people will agree that there is absolutely no excuse for mocking a sexual assault survivor from the presidential podium.


Bottom line women voters you have a choice this November. A lot of this anti-woman madness we are witnessing from the GOP can be cured by multitudes of women registering to vote and then “neutering” the anti-woman GOP in November by voting in Democrats both at the federal and state levels. Simply put there is a very viable solution to this GOP anti-woman madness–The Vote!!

Kavanaugh’s Dramatic Collapse Over FBI Questions A Total Disqualifier

Sen Dick Durbin(D-IL) Questioning Kavanaugh

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow yesterday gave a brilliant presentation as to why Kavanaugh is manifestly unfit for the U.S. Supreme Court. Maddow gave several compelling reasons but zeroed in on these two most important disqualifiers, (1) Kavanaugh’s total collapse over FBI questions and (2) Kavanaugh’s hyper partisan political nature which would be a disqualifier for any other jurist.

Kavanaugh’s dramatic collapse when Senator Dick Durbin(D-IL) asked if he would welcome an FBI investigation was by far his most damaging performance. Any reasonable person watching how Kavanaugh appeared intent on avoiding any FBI investigation would arrive at the conclusion that he had something to hide. The full Maddow segment is available here but the relevant clip is below.

Kavanaugh looks even worse when you consider the fact that Christine Blasey Ford and the other accusers have all welcomed an FBI investigation meaning unlike Kavanaugh, they know they are telling the truth.


The other very concerning aspect of Kavanaugh’s testimony was his hyper partisan attacks on Democrats. This as Maddow correctly points out, is something totally out of character for any jurist especially one expecting to land on the U.S. Supreme Court and it displays a serious lack of judicial temperament needed for a Supreme Court Justice. Putting everything aside, this lack of judicial temperament displayed by Kavanaugh should also be a disqualifier.

We’d be remiss if we left out the total lack of respect Kavanaugh showed to Sen Amy Klobuchar(D-MN). I mean if there was any doubt in anyone’s mind that Kavanaugh had little respect for women this was all the proof they needed. Kavanaugh’s condescending response to Sen Klobuchar’s fair question shows that his natural inclination is to disrespect women. It is only after advice from one of his staffers that he realized how disrespectful he had been  to Sen Klobuchar, which prompted him to apologize. Very troubling indeed.

Bottom line Kavanaugh’s strange fear of an FBI investigation into the allegations made against him only prove that he is not a truthful person and is clearly hiding something. Nobody, even his ardent supporters after watching how he answered the FBI questions  would ever conclude that the truth was on his side. Simply put folks, a manifest liar like Kavanaugh should not be in the U.S. Supreme Court.

GOP Is Officially The Anti-Woman Party

Sen Chuck Grassley (R-IA)

As Americans eagerly wait for Thursday’s blockbuster Senate Judiciary Committee hearing where Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser Dr Christine Blasey Ford is set to testify, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Sen Chuck Grassley has decided to schedule a committee vote on Friday–just a few hours after Dr. Ford’s testimony.


This is to date one of the biggest insults the GOP has hurled at women across the country and here’s why. Nobody, including Sen Chuck Grassley knows what will transpire at Dr. Ford’s hearing. There may be new revelations at the hearing that may cause Republicans who have so far been willing to back Kavanaugh change their mind. By convening a Friday Senate Judiciary Committee meeting even before hearing Dr. Ford’s testimony, Sen Grassley and indeed his GOP colleagues in the Senate Judiciary Committee are saying boldly and loudly to Dr Ford in particular and women generally that the GOP is not interested in what women have to say. The best analogy here would be a judge setting a sentencing hearing even before the trial took place–a total travesty of justice.


Dems must call out Sen Grassley and his Senate Judiciary colleagues for this blatant anti-woman action. Senate Dems must point this out at the hearing which will be watched by millions of women voters. Bottom line folks it is no longer just a cheap shot from liberals–the modern GOP is truly an anti-woman party.

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.

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.

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.
