Sen. Chuck Grassley has decided to give Christine Blasey-Ford one more day to decide if she wants to testify before the Judiciary committee. This is a bad idea. Ford did deserve a hearing, but she no longer does.

Once Ford teamed up with Ricki Seidman, it became very clear that the intent here is to destroy Brett Kavanaugh as Seidman tried to do to Clarence Thomas.

Ford and her legal team are engaged in chicanery. They’ve made asinine demands:

Citing “sources,” Fox News’ Shannon Bream reports on the demands Christine Blasey Ford and her legal team are making as a condition for her testifying about her allegations against Brett Kavanaugh:

Ford team wants NO questions from lawyers, only Qs from Committee members, #Kavanaugh cannot be in the room, Kavanaugh must testify FIRST – more to come …

These demands are absurd. No questions from lawyers? I guess Ford wants to be able to claim she’s being persecuted by an all-white-male panel. She doesn’t want a woman to examine her, which I imagine is what the Republicans have in mind.

But effective cross-examination is the best way to get at the truth. And in-practice lawyers, not politicians who once may have practiced law, generally make the best cross-examiners.

If Ford is telling the truth she shouldn’t be afraid of lawyers. The Committee should reject this demand.

Kavanaugh can’t be in the room? Say what? Ford is accusing Kavanaugh of a crime. Criminal defendants aren’t booted out of the courtroom when their accusers testify. As the accused, albeit not in a criminal proceeding, the interests of justice demand that Kavanaugh be confronted with the witness against him.

I loved Jonathan Turley’s metaphor- swing first, then I’ll pitch.

Ford deserved to be heard during the official Kavaugh proceedings- Feinstein had Ford’s letter since July. democrats held that letter in abeyance until after the completion of the Kavanaugh hearings in order to ambush Brett Kavanaugh.

Since then, Kavanaugh’s family has been the target of vile attacks and death threats- which the let wing media has largely ignored.

“Please tell your rapist, lying, cheating, corrupt b—h of a husband to put a bullet in his ugly f—–g skull,” one email to Kavanaugh’s wife read. “My condolences to you for being married to a rapist. Although you probably deserve it.”

Another email, with the subject line, “Did your know your husband is a rapist?????” stated: “Hey b—h, did you know your husband was a rapist before you married him? F–k you and your f—–g family.”

A third email, typed entirely in capital letters, read, “F–K YOU AND YOUR RAPIST HUSBAND.”


Now Ford has been offered the chance to tell her story and she is resisting. Brett Kavanaugh is chomping at the bit to testify.

Let us also remember that Feinstein has yet to share the entire body of Ford’s letter- even with the FBI. Grassley has asked for it numerous times to no avail. Everyone needs to see it.

For some time I have believed Ford is wrong about Kavanaugh. Something may have happened to her but her inability to provide specifics is eyebrow raising. She cannot remember the town, the home, how she got there, how she got home or back to school.

I think it’s because she was blind stupid drunk.

My version of this story has her following a boy she had a crush on, found herself in a situation over her head, and panicked. She locks herself in the bathroom. Later, she leaves.

Again, in my version she doesn’t tell Mom and Dad about it because she was drunk- at the age of 15. She tells no one. It explains why she can’t remember a damned thing other than Kavanaugh.

Then in 2012, long after she’s adopted a left wing political view, she sees Kavanaugh’s name floated as a Romney SCOTUS nominee and decides he would be a good target for accusation and she can finally tell the parents. Kills two birds with one story.

Problem is, the boys she says were there deny Kavanaugh was present.

I think, for whatever motivation, Ford is mistaken. Just like with Anita Hill, there is a solitary accuser. An outlier. Weinstein had dozens of accusers. Al Franken had pictures. Keith Ellison has a contemporaneous police report and a medical report.

There are no other Kavanaugh accusers. None.

Which is more likely? In my mind there is no doubt.

Ford retained some measure of validity until she teamed up with a virulently anti-Trump leftist attorney who is part of the “resistance” and a rabid character assassin.

It’s not the truth they’re after any more.

If she is serious, Ford should file a police complaint against Kavanaugh today in Maryland. Let her figure out where to file it. She should not be using the Senate as the proxy for the police.

democrats won’t be done if Kavanaugh is confirmed. Sheldon Whitehouse has promised basically to impeach Kavanaugh if democrats take the House.

And if that doesn’t work, they’ll probably try to have him killed.

Ford’s window is closed. Her 15 minutes is up. Kavanaugh doesn’t deserve any more of this garbage. Merrick Garland wasn’t subjected to this vicious treatment,

Move on. Confirm Kavanaugh.


I think Kavanaugh ought to adapt the “Whoopi Goldberg” defense and tailor it to his own needs:

“I know it wasn’t rape-rape. It was something else but I don’t believe it was rape-rape.”
