Earlier this week, Senator Diane Feinstein accused Republicans are trying to block an FBI investigation into the allegation by California college professor Christine Ford that Judge Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in 1982. She must have known this was a lie, and even the Justice Department felt the need to issue a statement that would explain to America’s lawmakers what the FBI does, says:
The FBI does not make any judgment about the credibility or significance of any allegation. The purpose of a background investigation is to determine whether the nominee could pose a risk to the national security of the United States. The allegation does not involve any potential federal crime.
There you have it.
Stupid Democrats have already turned the hearings into an embarrassing clown show, and now, the Left is already billing this (Risky Businessgate) as a sequel to the 1991 Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas fiasco. Anita Hill herself wrote in The New York Times that the committee “has a chance to do better by the country than it did nearly three decades ago.” Yeah, right.
The Ford sexual assault allegation should not come as a surprise to anyone. Democrats want this delayed as close to the November midterms as possible.
Let’s take a little stroll down recent history lane in order to put the Ford accusation in perspective. Back in August, a large group of Left-leaning groups co-signed a letter to both Senator Feinstein and Senator Grassley demanding Kavanaugh records. We were graced with this same line of BS from Cory Booker and Kamala Harris during the opening day of the confirmation hearing. One of the groups that co-signed the letter was called the Project on Government Oversight, or POGO. The vice chair of POGO is a woman named Debra Katz. That’s right, the same Debra Katz that is now the lawyer for Kavanaugh’s accuser.
This gets even more stupid. POGO is directly funded by “Son of the Third Reich”, George Soros, and the Open Society Foundation.
In June the Daily Caller reported that a group called Demand Justice had launched an effort to try and stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation. They allocated five million to the project. Demand Justice gets their funding from something called the Sixteen Thirty Fund, and their funds come directly from George Soros and the Open Society Policy Center. They’ve given over two million in recent years.
Notes from the Margin
Even as ridiculous and stupid as this thing has become if you have a son in or on his way to college, I would take careful notes. Young men across the country are being falsely accused of sexual misconduct where there is little or no evidence. In the current climate, an accuser is allowed, without real evidence, to unutterably alter a young man’s life by an accusation that cannot be backed up by hard evidence. In 2011, the Campus Consent Law came to be folded into the federal mandate of Title IX, and colleges and universities were authorized to become quasi-criminal courts and adjudicate sexual assault complaints. In these tribunals, there appears to be no consideration of reasonable doubt, just that a preponderance of evidence be pointing to assault. That evidence is largely, of course, the girl’s say-so.
