From a conversation:

"Seems as though Kavanaugh's accuser scrubbed her entire social media accounts before coming forward. Why? Maybe because of her political activism : Ford is a political activist who has made dozens of donations to left-wing causes. According to OpenSecrets, she has made more than 60 donations to liberal causes, with almost four dozen to the pro-abortion group, Emily’s List, alone. Ford also donated to the DNC, Hillary Clinton (more than 10 times), Bernie Sanders, and the progressive organizing group ActBlue. Ford likewise attended the anti-Trump March for Science, where she wore a hat knitted like a human brain, but inspired by the feminist “p_ssy hats” worn at the Women’s Marches. Ford also added her name to an open letter from health professionals who argued the U.S. border policy resulting in temporary separation of some families was harmful to children’s development."

What a joke this is.

The Left taking a page out of the Lavrentiy Beria playbook "Show me the man, and I'll show you the crime"

Led by Kirsten Gillibrand - and she's an attorney. Incredible.

You shouldn't be surprised. Pocahontas made her name railing on the big banks for foreclosing on people circa 2008...Meanwhile she made her pre-politician fortune ripping off old people and buying foreclosed homes for quick flips. Politicians are special people.

A question people need to ask themselves is what exactly is a "fair process"? That if I don't like someone, all I have to do is fabricate a story about them assaulting someone and they are ruined? She made a claim. Kavanaugh responded to it. Yet it seems by the fact that this won't go away, that people are taking her word over his? Why? What can someone do to clear their name? If it didn't happen then that's all he can say. At yet people still continue to rage on. The media continues to use propaganda labeling him as "alleged sexual offender" and now you see liberal outlets putting out junk about how we can't have a sexual predator on the SC... Again, with zero evidence, basis, or witness. All it takes is "someone said something", and this is what happens to people.


It is clear the Democrats and accuser are purposely trying to drag this out as long as possible for the sole purpose of getting past mid term elections. They've said they'd try anything, and they are. The accuser has said she'd testify, then went silent, then made demands, but always takes an action that seems to kill time.

In theory I agree with you, but let's talk about "fair".

Was it "fair" to withhold 100K pages of documents on Kavanaugh?

Was it "fair" for a republican congress to refuse to vote on Obama's supreme court nominee, during his term?

What about any of this screams "fair"?

The process isn't fair on either side. What I am getting at though is that we should be utterly terrified of what's happening here. There is no due process, and a complete nobody can now ruin ANYONE(well almost anyone), simply by making a statement, whether true or not.

LC you are employed by a moderate sized company(theoretically). I claim you tried to grab my junk(clearly not true). At best, you're on leave immediately and then reinstated after being dragged through the mud and labelled. At worst your employer cuts ties with you, you reputation and career are ruined. This is so wrong.

Oh I absolutely sympathize there - I think we can all point to stories of unfounded accusations ruining not just careers, but lives. False rape allegations against college kids and young adults, parents having their kids taken away because of someone else's allegations, false imprisonment because some dirty cops making sh1t up, etc. I get that it's a problem, and it doesn't have an easy solution.

Life is not cut and dry - we all depend on other people to have a cool head and listen to facts when they are judging us.

But, part of it comes with the territory. He is choosing to walk into this ring, he could say "no I don't want the nomination". It's a sh1tshow of a political process, a process which any moral or ethical guidelines are being eroded.

It's like someone running for President and not expecting the skeletons in their closet to surface - you are being willfully naive. This isn't me throwing blame around, it's just an observation of the arena that politicians play in.
