She wrote this essay to inform “all those clamoring for an FBI investigation into the Ford/Kavanaugh situation.”
WHO: Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, accuser; Judge Bret Kavanaugh, defendant; Mark Judge, witness; Patrick J. Smyth, witness; Leland Ingham Keyser, witness.
WHAT: All named witnesses declare, under oath of committing felony perjury, it never happened. Ford’s best friend Leland, said Ford never ran in the same crowd as Kavanaugh. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford claimed that in the early 80s, perhaps the summer of 1982, she attended a party somewhere near Columbia Country Club in Montgomery County, Maryland. She neither remembers how she got there, nor how she returned home. She does remember it was before she obtained her driver’s license. She mentions four boys and two girls were there, or maybe more. She was only able to provide names for four: Brett, Mark, PJ, and Leland. Although she was never asked why she was upstairs in the first place, since most nearby homes have at least a powder room on the first floor, she claims she was in an upstairs bedroom with Mark and Brett. Here, she was thrown onto the bed and Brett attempted to take off her clothing, ground himself against her and put his hand over her mouth. She feared for her life. Mark threw himself onto the bed and they all fell onto the floor. She recalls the boys laughing hysterically at her expense. She escaped into the bathroom and later went downstairs and outside, returned home and no police report was filed. In order for any investigation to occur, either then or now, plaintiff must file a police report and Ford did not. Recent requests by Democrats to investigate were met with a refusal because it was a 1982 misdemeanor and the statute of limitations expired after one year. She was too afraid to mention the incident to anyone until 2012, when she first divulged it in couples therapy. The emergent memory was so strong she claims she had to install a second front door in her home in order to have an additional way to escape in case of another attack. But the building permit for this door was issued in 2008, reportedly to connect to a room she rents out.
WHEN: Time unknown, date unknown, probably in the summer of 1982 prior to Ford obtaining a driver’s license.
WHERE: Place unknown, some home in Montgomery County, Maryland, probably near the Columbia Country Club.
Motive One: To use the newly minted phrase, “create a moral panic”. Democrats would have you believe it is because Brett Kavanaugh is being hired for a lifetime job and for this, should have a totally unblemished character. This 11th hour allegation should provide, beyond any reasonable doubt, an adequate reason to reject his application, despite being totally unprovable and totally opposed to an otherwise spotless reputation. Kavanaugh passed six previous FBI investigations. This motive is relatively improbable because more than 100 friends, classmates and coworkers have written and spoken to the quality of his character. Mark Judge has agreed to testify to the FBI.
Motive Two: Brett Kavanaugh’s mother was a judge with ties to a foreclosure of the Blasey Maryland residence and this is REVENGE. This motive is also improbable because the home was not actually foreclosed and his mother’s ties were distant to the case.
Motive Three: Some Republicans would have you believe Democrats, the Deep State and Nevertrumpers within the Republican Party want to use any possible means to delay the Kavanaugh confirmation beyond the 2018 Midterm elections, hoping they will reclaim the majority necessary to prevent a conservative judge from being appointed to the Supreme Court.
Motive Four: As payback for what the Republican majority did to President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016. Probably another contributing factor for motive three.
HOW: This is where it gets interesting, with evidence pointing to Motive Three as the most logical answer. Since high school yearbooks entered the discussion re. Kavanaugh, with allegations that he habitually partied, got drunk and even might have passed out with no recollection of events, it is only fair to also point out Ford’s yearbook records. Holton Arms, the private girls’ school Ford attended, might be a role model for “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Girls partied, got drunk and bragged about being sexual predators. Logic and knowing most teens frequently do things of a questionable nature, might indicate the alleged sexual assault, if it actually happened, would be plausible for either Kavanaugh or Ford. Kavanaugh’s online yearbooks were not scrubbed from the Internet; Ford’s have been. Pages from hard copy remain and have been shared.
Kavanaugh was blindsided by the accusations. His family receives death threats. He has no GoFundMe website to pay for legal expenses. Ford has pro bonoattorneys, she testified she does not know who paid for her polygraph and her GoFundMe donations are nearing one million dollars at this writing.
Ford sent an accusatory letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein in July, after having previously contacted her congressional representative who initially suggested a course of action. This letter has been examined and found to have typographical inconsistencies. It does not mention Kavanaugh by name. Writing experts furthermore claim it could not have been written by someone with a Ph.D. There were at least 14 glaring elementary mistakes that a published author with a Ph.D. should not have made. Rumor has it that the same or very similar letter has been seen before, prior to the Justice Gorsuch confirmation.
Feinstein suggested hiring attorneys she knew. Ford also requested Feinstein keep information confidential. During a lengthy confirmation process, Kavanaugh was asked nothing about this incident, by either Feinstein or any of the other nine Democratic senators on the Judicial Committee. Instead, Feinstein sat on the letter for more than a month, saving it to use at a later critical juncture. That critical juncture was September 12, when the Judiciary Committee was scheduled for a vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination.
There are procedures specified by the Senate Judiciary Committee for having investigators handle affairs quietly. But Feinstein forwarded the letter to the Justice Department, which someone from her office or Ford herself leaked to the Washington Post. What ensued was a very public planned or unplanned media circus.
The choice of attorneys is interesting. Kavanaugh’s lawyer, Beth Wilkinson, is a high-powered, Washington, D.C. lawyer who represented multiple top Clinton aides involved in the FBI email investigation during the campaign. She’s also a long-time Democratic booster, and is married to CNN contributor David Gregory. As for Dr. Ford’s attorneys, Debra Katz was a campaign fundraiser for Clinton during her 2016 campaign; Michael Bromwich resigned from his law firm because the partners objected to his decision to represent Ford. Bromwich was also the face of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s legal team.
Brett Kavanaugh and his life are an open book, documented by his written judicial record. In contrast, there are many red flags in Christine Ford’s life and connections, pointing to a left-wing political agenda:
(1) Ford’s ties to George Soros: According to The Washington Times:
Look at what’s going on with Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings for the Supreme Court, and the fingerprints of George Soros are all over it.
First there was a report from June in the Daily Caller that found “a new political advocacy group that vowed to put $5 million behind an effort to stop … Kavanaugh’s confirmation has significant ties to the liberal financier” Soros
What are those ties?
The group, Demand Justice, established in 2018, gets its money from the Sixteen Thirty Fund — and the Sixteen Thirty Fund received roughly $2.2 million from the Open Society Policy Center, one of Soros’ outlets, between the years of 2012 and 2016.
And Demand Justice’s entire mission is to advance a progressive agenda through the courts.
“[Our goal is to] sensitize rank-and-file progressives to think of the courts as a venue for their activism and a way to advance the progressive agenda,” DJ’s executive director, Brian Fallon, said to The New York Times.
But that’s not all.
Debra Katz, the attorney representing Kavanaugh’s accuser — Christine Blasey Ford — is vice chair of the Project on Government Oversight, an organization that has been directly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
Katz is also a hefty Democratic donor, giving thousands of dollars over the years to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other leftist candidates, as Front Page Mag reported.
(2) Ford’s ties to the CIA:
According to Michael Savage:
Well, besides being a “professor” at the off-brand university, she also works at a major university down the street from Palo Alto. She just so happens to head up the CIA undergraduate internship program at Stanford University. Christine Blasey Ford’s brother, Ralph the third, used to work for the international law firm of Baker Hostetler. The firm created fusion GPS, the company who wrote the Russian “dossier”. They later admitted it was only a collection of field interviews. Baker Hostetler is located in the same building where the CIA operates three companies called Red Coats Inc, Admiral Services and Datawatch. They are operated by Ralph Blasey II. He is the father of Christine and Ralph III. Christine and Ralph III’s grandfather was Nicholas Deak. Former CIA director William Casey acknowledged Deak’s decades of service to the CIA.
(3) Ford’s ties to the abortion industry: She has profited from an abortion drug. Natural News reported:
Ford works for a pharmaceutical company that manufacturers an abortion pill drug, whose profits could be strongly impacted by future Supreme Court decisions on abortion rights. Corcept Therapeutics (Corcept.com) manufacturers and markets an abortion pill drug called mifepristone, and Christine Blasey Ford is a co-author of at least eight published scientific papers produced by the pharmaceutical giant to promote its pills. You can see Blasey’s name listed on several publications at this Corcept.com web page detailing their research papers. Corcept Therapeutics, Inc., a $166 billion market cap company (stock symbol CORT) reportedly has current annual sales of $216 million. The company offers just one drug, mifepristone, which is widely known as an “abortion pill” or RU-486. The controversial site Gateway Pundit first broke this story. It seems to have all its facts straight. And it leaves out a key one: Ford actually worked as “director of biostatistics for Corcept Therapeutics in Menlo Park,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle. (H/T Tiger Droppings.)
So the one person with a remotely plausible story attacking Kavanaugh, whose story Democrats saved as a Hail Mary pass, turns out to have profited directly from an abortion drug. Imagine if an anti-gun SCOTUS appointee were just about to be confirmed, then some right-wing woman came out with vague, unprovable charges. Then we learned that the accuser had worked for a company that made AR-15s. How much credence would the media give her?
Even though Roe v. Wade is established abortion law and it would take another case brought before the Supreme Court to change anything, Democrats, Planned Parenthood and radical feminists are so protective of the right for unrestricted abortion, they use this as a perceptive wedge against the Pro-Life segment of the population. The Supreme Court, according to Constitutional provisions does not and can not legislate on its own. By stacking the court with liberal judges, the left wants to enable the court to legislate as well as rule.
A forensic accountant should be appointed to ”Follow the money!”
Ford as a political activist: Ricki Seidman, a Democratic operative and former Clinton White House official who is now an advisor to Mrs. Ford, said in July (at roughly the same time as the letter was submitted) that she predicted a “strategy” forming to destroy Brett Kavanaugh.
She suggested a “strategy will emerge” to destroy Trump’s nomination for the Supreme Court in a conference call with the American Constitution Society in July. “I do think that over the coming days and weeks there will be a strategy that will emerge, and I think it’s possible that strategy might ultimately defeat the nominee,” Seidman said in audio that was recorded by the Republican National Committee’s War Room. “And whether or not it ultimately defeats the nominee it will, I think, help people understand why it’s so important that they vote.”
Blasey Ford is cited in a San Jose Mercury News article as opposing President Donald Trump, including a science march in California last year where she donned a version of the “pussy hats” worn at the January 2017 Women’s March, angered by the Trump administration’s proposed cuts to research.
Discovery: Little hard evidence about the alleged event is available. Kavanaugh produced a calendar/diary for the summer of 1982, which indicated he was out of town for much of the summer. When he was home, there were only a few occasions to attend a party. But Kavanaugh had good reasons for not attending each of the few parties, e.g. taking a SAT exam the following day.
Ford turned over a problematic lie detector record during which only two questions were asked and neither mentioned Kavanaugh by name. Beth Wilkinson, Kavanaugh’s attorney, is interested in seeing the therapy sessions notes, which she says are important to corroborate claims made by Ford. “Apparently in those notes, there’s a differing story about how many people were present at the party, there’s no mention of Judge Kavanaugh, and so all that information would be very important to determine whether there’s any corroboration of this allegation,” Wilkinson said on “CBS This Morning” Wednesday.
At every step of the way, Ford and her team have managed delay after delay, sometimes for reasons that rise to the level of malpractice by her attorneys. Apparently Ford was not advised that senate investigators would come to her in California after she objected to flying. In contrast, from day one, Kavanaugh has asked for and agreed to cooperate with any opportunity or investigation to clear his good name against this defamatory allegation.
The FBI presents facts, not conclusions, facts which are up to courts and trials to prove or disprove.
Judiciary Committee Democrat members displayed a holier than thou attitude when questioning Kavanaugh. This is more evidence of creating a “moral panic.” You would think, listening to them, the alleged crime rose to the level of a serial killer’s 30th victim rather than a sole youthful indiscretion. Rather than use questioning time to actually ask Kavanaugh to answer questions, getting the information they so repeatedly say they want from the FBI, they chose to pontificate and cast irrelevant character aspersions about Kavanaugh such as, “Do you drink on weekdays?”
(1) If Kavanaugh is not confirmed, his reputation and employment opportunities are stained forever.
(2) If his confirmation is delayed until after the mid-term election and the majority party is flipped, his reputation remains stained and he will not be confirmed.
