A few questions for Dr. Ford:

http://ace.mu.nu/archives/377326.php

daddy

Also, Ford doesn’t get to say no to the FBI, regardless of what her lawyers are demanding.

Can't a Federal Judge in California rule that her Civil Rights are being violated by not allowing her and her Attorney's the sufficient and reasonable time they need to prepare for these proceedings? If I was a corrupt Federal Judge that's certainly what I'd immediately Rule.

daddy

He seemed hard pressed to decide if drinking til he fell asleep was blacking out. Which it isn't. If you are asleep, and can be woken up, and remember that, you didn't black out.


A'Mom,

I would have had no problem answering that question with great specificity.

Ed Rollins to Lou Dobbs:

Ed Rollins:...Flake I'm terribly disappointed in. I thought he was going to be a man of courage today when he stepped up and said he would vote the Nominee out, and then 15 minutes later, after a woman yelled at him in the elevator, he rolled over and played dead. I never thought of him as a courageous sole, and he clearly showed his...

Lou: interupting) When you say a woman yelled at him you are talking about a demonstrator?

Rollins: A demonstrator, yes. And you can imagine what happens if there were 10 of them. He quickly folded, after putting out a Press Release saying he was going to be supportive of the Nominee, so to make a long story short the Democrats got what they wanted all week. At the end of the day you still have the most qualified man in modern History to be put on the Supreme Court. A week from now he will still be the most qualified man to be put on the Court...The people who have promised to support this nominee had better come forth.

sbwaters

Will those interviewed by the FBI be taped?

Will they be allowed to have attorneys present?

Extraneus

I don’t think anyone bothered to ask Ford whether she wanted this.

You think she might not be a willing assassin? Just a weak-minded acquaintance they somehow found from his high school days who'd be willing to entertain repressed memories of tickling turned into attempted rape?

I think she's more of an enemy and would like to see her destroyed.

lurkersusie

Will the FBI give Ford the Hillary Special?

4. I told him that I was going to disengage from talking to him.

An update on Judge Emmett Sullivan: Judge sets Michael Flynn sentencing for December 18, 2018


20 September 2018: ...A federal judge on Wednesday set Flynn's sentencing for Dec. 18 at 11:00 a.m., more than a year after the retired U.S. Army lieutenant general pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russia during the presidential transition...

The move comes just days after prosecutors working for special counsel Robert Mueller said they were ready for Flynn's case to conclude...

p...rosecutors have yet to reveal the extent of his cooperation, and according to U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan's order, the public won't see any details until after the midterm election.

Hard Head

Oh pooh!

If the left is having a hissy fit, it's because they not only don't recognize justice, they abhor it.

If that had been a fair hearing yesterday, the kinds of questions that should have been asked would have had your delicate witness running from the room - not prissily sitting there giggling with the Senators.

I won't list those questions here. I'll wait and let them bubble to the surface to the embarrassment of that Committee and the moronic democrats as the facts about B-Ford's teenage exploits are made known.

America magazine is a liberal rag which most regular Catholics don’t read.

JimNorCal

My impression is that there is a small group of GOPe Senators who want to avoid voting for Kavanaugh. They're on board with the Dem agenda, by and large.

That's why it is important to get a vote. We need to know:
who is on the side of Americans and freedom
who backs mob rule by Dem activists
who backs authoritarian rule by unelected gov't employees

Let the Dems get a victory, if necessary. But let's get the names of the traitors in our midst. None of this, 'we don't have the votes so withdraw the nomination'. Give us the names of Senators, make them take a stand.

I agree, JimNorCal. I'd rather see a floor vote fail with everyone on record than a pulled nomination.

maryrose

Henry:
Let the hearings , indictments and perp walks begin...

Skoot

Remember this is a background check - It's not before a court. Nobody has to participate. Kav will cause he's asking for something. Ford and the others, I don't think so. You can tell the FBI to f*ck off if they call about a background check. They put it in the report and forward it, whatev.

Pinandpuller

Did Ford's HS room look a lot like Edmond Dantes' cell?

She's got more hash marks than a 250 year old Command Sgt Major.

Captain Hate

Bongino was Secret Service

I don't think McCarthy was in the FBI either.

My point is you can't trust anybody McCarthy vouches for since everybody he vouches for is shit, whereas at least Bongino probably knows people who are in the FBI that can be trusted to do their jobs. I would ask McCarthy to submit a list of names and every individual he recommended I would scratch off the list.

Both McCarthy and Bongino are friends with Levin and I'm sure they know and like each other. I understand where you're coming from on McCarthy because I've been extremely frustrated with him often, particularly because he's extremely unwilling to badmouth a former colleague even when he's been caught doing something illegal. I've listened to Levin long enough to hear the frustration in his voice when Andy's on his show and he starts obsessing on minutiae until Ol' Yeller gets him back on track. That said, he's on because he understands the law and how it's practiced at the federal judicial level. If you had a tv show, Law and Order Federal District Level, Bongino would be on for the first half and McCarthy the second.

For doing an FBI investigation, Bongino would be my go to guy because he probably would know the experts in getting the facts on this type of inquiry.

maryrose

Shoot:
I actually hope they refuse to cooperate.
It will show everyone what a sham and disgrace this whole show has been.
I am laughing at Katz thinking she can further delay.

Captain Hate

squaredance,

His threadreader account still works. Twitter is the enemy.

derwill

Ford asked to remain anonymous in her letter. There are rumors that she panicked shortly there after and sent emails begging that her letter be withdrawn (hence the later I was hacked claim) She didn't out herself, someone (probably DiFi) did that. I think she made up a story—or rather inserted Kavanaugh into an old story—and told it to her beach friends. They talked her into writing it down and sending it to DiFi. I have no doubt that she hates Trump and Kavanaugh, but I don’t see her as a warrior princess who plotted all this down to the giggles yesterday.

Pimp Puller

Banned from Twitter..its so unfair..sniff sniff

That allowed @ThomasWictor the opportunity to start explaining some stuff. And he went on for 33 tweets, writing about how Milano was using a telephoto lens to measure the layout and the distances of the room and how she was going to try to cause a distraction in the room. He used sexist language and suggested that a botched assassination plan on national television resulting in her death was good for the public.

Extraneus

I hope the FBI identifies her beach friends. I'd be interested to read their social media pages.

Patterico

This whole “My assault doesn’t matter!” thing really rips me off.

I was assaulted in a similar way to what Ford claims happened to her. (Sorry for the mangled sentence.) I can tell you the exact date, the time, who was there, why I happened to be there, who I told the very next day, the location, and why I didn’t report. (The latter even comes with its own corroboration, in the form of an obituary. Talk about a (expletive) 24 hours.) Whether or not any of that would be enough to get to “beyond a reasonable doubt” in a trial, it would certainly be enough upon which to base an investigation. For something that is not a criminal trial, but necessitates good decision-making, it wouldn’t be unreasonable.

That Blasey Ford cannot provide any basis upon which to start an investigation is… (grits teeth). If the “feminist” message is that we have to believe her because she’s a woman, total lack of evidence be damned, I don’t know how we ask people to take any of us seriously.

Done ranting. How are you all doing today?

Hey bridget. The whole “believe victims!” thing is scary and it’s bizarre how widespread it is in a country supposedly run on principles of due process.

Too bed early so we can wake up at 0200hrs for Day 2 of the Ryder Cup. USA needs an extension ladder to climb out of the hole they dug in yesterday's foursomes. Bryson Dechambeau may be a physics grad but what he needs to do is become a putter grad.

The Infamous Ignatz

Not sure what Wictor's offense was. Perhaps he said something awful like Islam is violent, as Robert Spencer did.
What he apparently didn't do is plan an armed, murderous communist insurrection against the government of the United States and its citizens.
Twitter thinks that's just peachy.

Looks like they found out he perfect guy to replace Jeff Flake on the Senate Judiciary Committee:

"Mitt Romney

derwill

The Dems wanted an indefinite investigation. They got a week. We know they’re going to wail that the FBI didn’t take long enough, but it will be an impotent wail because all collins and Murkowski want is to be able to tell the lady parts contingent that they asked for an FBI investigation and they got one. Once the FBI investigation is over every time the Dems claim that Kavanaugh isn’t legitimate because he “raped” Ford, they get to come back with: “The FBI investigatied Ford’s claims and could find no evidence to support them.” In the end this will actually help to restore Kavanaugh’s reputation, because while we know the whole thing is bullshit the muddle will be convinced the FBI “cleared him.”

Captain Hate

As I said before I hope Kavanagh or someone close to him hires investigators to dig deep and protect him.

I'm sure DJT has this covered.

JimNorCal

Ford may have technically committed perjury. Her workplace quickly covered up.

https://www.dangerous.com/49836/records-show-dr-ford-is-not-a-licensed-psychologist-may-have-committed-perjury/
Under California law, as with almost every other state, in order for a person to identify publicly as a psychologist they must be licensed ... To call oneself a psychologist without being licensed by a state board is the equivalent of a law school graduate calling herself a lawyer without ever taking the bar exam. ... What makes Ford’s claim even more suspicious is someone affiliated with Stanford University appears to have also been aware of the potentially damning use of the word “psychologist” and rushed to cover for Ford. DANGEROUS exclusively uncovered an archived version of Christine’s Blasey’s page on the school’s faculty directory. On September 10, 2015, the only archived date available, Ford’s faculty page was saved to the Wayback Machine and showed Ford listed as a “research psychologist” along with her email address and office phone number.

The most recent version of that page shows Ford listed only as an “Affiliate” in the department, with the words “research psychologist” removed along with Ford’s email address and phone number. This suggests the page was altered by someone very recently to scrub Ford’s contact information and title after she entered the national spotlight.
