It's time to put the women back in their place!
So, I'm listening to these women and how they think this Ford woman should be believed, but also, that the men should just shut up and man up??
This sexual abuse thing is getting out of control. If we let these women run with this, there will be no reproduction but for their golden permission! No passion, no spontaneity, no fun!!
The world functioned just fine for thousands of years without giving the women a voice, right??!!
Of course, I don't think that, but it would appear that many of these 21st century women are wanting to flip it on us men , and basically, take over!! I'm sorry girls, but that is neither biblical nor is it going to happen. The puss men of the 21st century might lean that way, but my guys, and my daughters aren't going with it!!
Men and women have places based upon all sorts of things. Men cannot give birth. Men have testosterone and thus are stronger. It's just the way it is. Not that I haven't seen a girl or two who could be pretty devastating, but that was mostly in the movies. Sorry girls. Mr and Mrs Jones just ain't possible! "Hey hun, your shooting is no better than your cooking, and that's saying something!!" The best line in a truly fictitious flick depicting a woman who could stand toe to toe with a guy. LOL!
So, as I see it, if you girls have something like this truly happen to you, no matter the delicate psychology of it, I'd suggest you "man" up and get on with the accusations, immediately, at the time. Get it out right then and there. Period!!!!!
A Question For Liberals
Should Kavanaugh's accuser be vetted as much as he has been?
A tough choice for Republicans
If the republicans on a party line vote in the age of the me too movement send an accused attempted rapist to the nations highest court, loosing the Senate in November becomes a distinct possibility. This is a question for supporters of Trumps nominee; is Kavanaughs appointment worth loosing the Senate? The idiot Pumpkinfuhrer is strangely quiet as Republicans in the senate are crapping themselves. Do you think McConnel will convince him to pull the nominee or will Kavanaugh fall on his own sword. One or the other is damn likely to happen before next Monday when his then 15 year old victim will have the opportunity to testify in public before the senate.
Her story is falling apart
Kavanaugh accuser goes public
'He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing'

WASHINGTON – The 51-year-old woman who claimed confidentially in letters to Democratic members of Congress that she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a high school teen is now telling her story publicly.
Though not certain about the year of the incident, Christine Blasey Ford claimed to the Washington Post that Kavanaugh and another high school friend, both “stumbling drunk,” corralled her into a bedroom during a gathering of teens at a house in Montgomery County, Maryland.
While his friend allegedly watched, she said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back, groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and attempted to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.
When she tried to scream, she claimed, he put his hand over her mouth.
“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” said Ford, a registered Democrat and research psychologist in northern California. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”
Following the report, leading Democrats immediately called for an investigation and a delay in the confirmation vote.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., wrote Sunday, “I support Mrs. Ford’s decision to share her story, and now that she has, it is in the hands of the FBI to conduct an investigation. This should happen before the Senate moves forward on this nominee.”
A White House official, asked Sunday by NBC News if Kavanaugh will withdraw his nomination, offered a firm “no” to NBC, pointing to the fact that “he has unequivocally denied the allegation.”
Earlier this summer, Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland. In recent days, she decided to tell her story sans anonymity.
Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh’s friend and classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending all three tumbling. She said she ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled the house.
Ford said she told no one of the incident in any detail until 2012, when she was in couples therapy with her husband. The therapist’s notes, portions of which were provided by Ford and reviewed by The Washington Post, do not mention Kavanaugh’s name but say she reported that she was attacked by students “from an elitist boys’ school” who went on to become “highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington.” The notes say four boys were involved, a discrepancy Ford says was an error on the therapist’s part. Ford said there were four boys at the party but only two in the room.
Notes from an individual therapy session the following year, when she was being treated for what she says have been long-term effects of the incident, show Ford described a “rape attempt” in her late teens.
In an interview, her husband, Russell Ford, said that in the 2012 sessions, she recounted being trapped in a room with two drunken boys, one of whom pinned her to a bed, molested her and prevented her from screaming. He said he recalled that his wife used Kavanaugh’s last name and voiced concern that Kavanaugh — then a federal judge — might one day be nominated to the Supreme Court.
Kavanaugh issued a statement last week on the matter saying, “I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”
Meanwhile, Judge provided an interview Friday to the the Weekly Standard, before Ford’s name was known. He denied that any such incident occurred.
“It’s just absolutely nuts,” he said. “I never saw Brett act that way,” Judge said. He also told the New York Times that Kavanaugh was a “brilliant student” who loved sports and was not “into anything crazy or illegal.”
Christine Ford is a professor at Palo Alto University who teaches in a consortium with Stanford University, training graduate students in clinical psychology. Her work has been widely published in academic journals.
She has engaged Debra Katz, a Washington lawyer known for her work on sexual harassment cases. On the advice of Katz, who believed Ford would be attacked as a liar if she came forward, Ford took a polygraph test administered by a former FBI agent in early August. The results, which Katz provided to the Post, concluded that Ford was being truthful when she said a statement summarizing her allegations was accurate.
By then, Ford had begun to fear she would be exposed. People were clearly learning her identity: A BuzzFeed reporter visited her at her home and tried to speak to her as she was leaving a classroom where she teaches graduate students. Another reporter called her colleagues to ask about her.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, released a letter from 65 women who say they knew Kavanaugh when he attended high school from 1979 to 1983 at Georgetown Prep, an all-boys school in North Bethesda.
“Through the more than 35 years we have known him, Brett has stood out for his friendship, character, and integrity,” the women wrote. “In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect. That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day.”
After so many years, Ford said she does not remember some key details of the incident. She said she believes it occurred in the summer of 1982, when she was 15, around the end of her sophomore year at the all-girls Holton-Arms School in Bethesda. Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the end of his junior year at Georgetown Prep.
At the time, Ford said, she knew Kavanaugh and Judge as “friendly acquaintances” in the private-school social circles of suburban Maryland. Her Holton-Arms friends mostly hung out with boys from the Landon School, she said, but for a period of several months socialized regularly with students from Georgetown Prep.
Ford said she does not remember how the gathering came together the night of the incident. She said she often spent time in the summer at the Columbia Country Club pool in Chevy Chase, where in those pre-cellphone days, teenagers learned about gatherings via word of mouth. She also doesn’t recall who owned the house or how she got there.
Judge is a filmmaker and author who has written for the Daily Caller, the Weekly Standard and The Washington Post. He chronicled his recovery from alcoholism in “Wasted: Tales of a Gen-X Drunk,” which described his own blackout drinking and a culture of partying among students at his high school, renamed in the book “Loyola Prep.” Kavanaugh is not mentioned in the book, but a passage about partying at the beach one summer makes glancing reference to a “Bart O’Kavanaugh,” who “puked in someone’s car the other night” and “passed out on his way back from a party.”
Ford said that on the night of the party, she left the family room to use the bathroom, which was at the top of a narrow stairway. She doesn’t remember whether Kavanaugh and Judge were behind her or already upstairs, but she remembers being pushed into a bedroom and then onto a bed. Rock-and-roll music was playing with the volume turned up high, she said.
Kavanaugh may have, innocently or not, screwed himself
“We had a good saying that we’ve held firm to to this day, as the dean was reminding me before the talk,” Kavanaugh said during a 2015 speech at the Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law in Washington, D.C. “Which is what happens at Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep. That’s been a good thing for all of us.” Same can be said of Vegas, and what happens there?
This is not good for the SCOTUS nominee. And then there is this. As Mother Jones points out, a book by Judge mentions Kavanaugh and his apparent love of binge-drinking while at the school. And in an April 2014 speech to the Yale Law School Federalist Society, Kavanaugh relayed his drinking adventures with friends.
The disgusting and unholy Religious Right
Even Trump somehow managed to be somewhat decent for the accuser about the accusations against Kavanaugh, though at an arm's length. Not so Lindsey Graham. And according to this Christian evangelist and humanitarian, the accusation is simply “not relevant.”
“It’s just a shame that a person like Judge Kavanaugh who has a stellar record — that somebody can bring something up that he did when he was a teenager close to 40 years ago,” Franklin Graham said in an interview Tuesday with the Christian Broadcasting Network. “That’s not relevant.” (He never explained why it is "not relevant.") But his lack of Christian love and kindness does not end there.
“They couldn’t find anything else in his record and so this is just an attempt to smear him and to smear his name and put a black dot on it,” Graham told CBN News’ Heather Sells. Without both sides being heard and the subject adjudicated by due process, He has acquitted Kavanaugh and indicted Christine Blasey Ford as a liar and a dupe for the Left. This is way beyond disgraceful, but even more so for a so-called religious leader. "Judge not, lest you be judged." He was licking Trump's shoes during this lesson. Inexcusable! And part of the patriarchal crap of the Church.
Please approached this with an open-mind.
Accept trump? But I listened, I watched and I paid attention..
Pretty long past letting anyone know that I do not support trump.
And this little ditty is old, but I lost it in the great file of my cloud.
So, this is what I failed to post in the long ago...
I listened as they called my President a Muslim.
I listened as they called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
I listened as they said he wasn't born here.
I watched as they blocked every single path to progress that they could.
I saw the pictures of him as Hitler.
I watched them shut down the government and hurt the entire nation twice.
I watched them turn their backs on every opportunity to open worthwhile dialog.
I watched them say that they would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
I listened as they openly said that they will oppose him at every turn.
I watched as they did just that.
I paid attention.
Now, I'm being called on to be tolerant.
To move forward.
To denounce protesters.
To "Get over it."
To accept this...
I WILL NOT!! .
I will do my part to make sure this great American mistake becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
I will do this as quickly as possible every chance I get.
I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to them.
Them. The people who voted for him.
The ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
I will do this so that they never forget.
And they will hear me.
They will see it in my eyes when I look at them.
They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them.
They will know that I know who they are.
They will know that I know what they are.
Do not call for my tolerance. I've tolerated all I can.
Now it's their turn to tolerate ridicule.
Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day forward is now Trump's fault just as much as they thought it was Obama's.
I find it unreasonable for them to expect from me what they were entirely unwilling to give.
Trump the Fool King
With senior White House officials anonymously writing op-eds to assure the people that "grown ups" are on staff to undercut the presidents insanity and now former Secretary of State John Kerry negotiating with Iran, it seems that Trump is loosing control (if he ever had any). It's one thing to be so disrespected, but these new developments show a whole level of dysfunction that we've not seen before in the White House. And now Trump's approval rating is dropping in ALL the polls.
So, obviously, an upset can occur within the space of a single election cycle but to turn that anomaly into a sustained shift in power would take a far more that a tweetstorm of BS. In the past, people like Hitler and Mussolini moved quickly to secure the power shift after the first election slip mostly through techniques that have eventually become associated with fascism. For a while, it was looking like Trump was going to do the same thing, but Trump is no Hitler. Trump is no Mussolini... Trump is a ridiculous fool who spends way too much time on vanities. So if the White-Nationalists and various other deplorables want to Make America White Again, they're going to need to find a new guy.
In the meantime, it's reassuring to know that even while Trump sits on his throne, his power is being compromised from within. He is depending more and more on a shrinking base of ineffective morons to support him while the "grownups" continue to ignore his orders and preserve the things of value that Trump is trying to destroy.
But don't loose hope, deplorables... Pence is right there, waiting in the wings. And this is why I advocate letting Trump stay on his throne until 2020. Kerry should be telling Iran to hang tight until then as I am sure he is. I'm sure all the great democracies around the world are doing the same. It's only two more years, after all. In that time, Trump's reckless policies, such as the 2017 Tax cut will have their effect and he won't be able to blame the consequences on his impeachment. Meanwhile, Trumps inability to legislate through Congress (he has sponsored only two LAWS in two years), his inability to enforce his own executive orders in sanctuary states like California (who is basically flipping Trump the bird) and his inability to gain any real consensus in the international community makes him to a large degree, ineffective.
I'm not saying we don't have anything to worry about... Any issue where Trump is really just doing what the Republicans want, such as the tax cuts and judicial nominees is an issue of concern, but the idea that Trump is going to buck the system is about as realistic as Pee Wee Herman destroying ISIS. Most of the powers that decide the world are just going to ignore his demands until he is voted off the island in 2020 and the parts of Obama's legacy, that are still relevant will be reinstated.
What Are The Seven Things God Hates
I have examined the landscape of politicians and a large number of them, particularly the Democrats and their supporters, the Main Street Media (MSM), many members of both the elite and deep state that best fit the description.
Arrogant (haughty) eyes.
Hands that shed innocent blood.
A heart that devises wicked schemes.
Feet eager to run to evil.
False witness who pours out lies.
A man who stirs up dissention among brothers.
We are sick of these people who are filled with pure hatred and anger and they are finally being called out under the new administration and a select group of legislators who are working hard to expose the corruption and to clean up the filth in the DC swamp.
What fools we are!
Just a reminder of who the man elected twice as President "really is",
and how easy it was to turn the keys of the Kingdom over to a radical
leftist Muslim sympathizer. We and our children may not outlive the
problems this man has brought upon this once great nation.
Anyone of these 'coincidences' when taken singularly appears to not
mean much, but when taken as a whole, a computer would blow a circuit
if you asked it to calculate the odds that they have occurred by
Obama just happened to know 60's far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers,
whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers,
who just happened to be a close friend of Obama's communist mentor
Frank Marshall Davis,
who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago
Defender with Vernon Jarrett,
who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born
leftist Valerie Jarrett,
who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House adviser,
and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company,
which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago,
which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state
and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing which
eventually just happened to require demolition.
Not to mention that this is the property that would have been the
grounds that hosted the Olympics, had Obama's efforts been successful.
Valerie Jarrett also just happened to work for the city of Chicago,
and just happened to hire Michelle LaVaughan Robinson (later Mrs.
who just happened to have worked at the Sidney Austin law firm,
where former fugitive from the FBI Bernardine Dohrn also just happened to work,
and where Barack Obama just happened to get a summer job.
Bernardine Dohrn just happened to be married to William Ayers,
with whom she just happened to have hidden from the FBI at a San Francisco
along with Donald Warden, who just happened to change his name to
and Warden al-Mansour,
who just happened to be a mentor of Black Panther Party Founders Huey
Newton and Bobby Seale and a close associate of Nation of Islam leader
and al-Mansour just happened to be financial adviser to a Saudi Prince,
who just happened to donate cash to Harvard,
for which Obama just happened to get a critical letter of
recommendation from Percy Sutton,
who just happened to have been the attorney for Malcolm X,
who just happened to know Kenyan politician Tom Mboya,
who just happened to be a close friend of Barack Hussein Obama, Sr.,
who just happened to meet Malcolm X when he traveled to Kenya.
Obama, Sr. just happened to have his education at the University of
Hawaii paid for by the Laubach Literacy Institute,
which just happened to have been supported by Elizabeth Mooney Kirk,
who just happened to be a friend of Malcolm X,
who just happened to have been associated with the Nation of Islam,
which was later headed by Louis Farrakhan,
who just happens to live very close to Obama's Chicago mansion,
which also just happens to be located very close to the residence of
William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn,
who just happen to have been occasional baby-sitters for Malia and
whose presumed parents just happened to have no concern exposing their
daughters to bomb-making communists.
After attending Occidental College and Columbia University, where he
just happened to have foreign Muslim roommates,
Obama moved to Chicago to work for the Industrial Areas Foundation,
an organization that just happened to have been founded by Marxist and
radical agitator Saul "the Red" Alinsky, author of Rules for Radicals,
who just happened to be the topic of Hillary Rodham Clinton's thesis
at Wellesley College,
and Obama's $25,000 salary at IAF just happened to be funded by a
grant from the Woods Fund,
which was founded by the Woods family, whose Sahara Coal company just
happened to provide coal to Commonwealth Edison,
whose CEO just happened to be Thomas Ayers,
whose son William Ayers just happened to serve on the board of the
Woods Fund, along with Obama.
Obama also worked on voter registration drives in Chicago in the 1980s
and just happened to work with leftist political groups like the
Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Socialist International
(SI), through which Obama met Carl Davidson,
who just happened to travel to Cuba during the Vietnam War to sabotage
the U.S. war effort, and
who just happened to be a former member of the SDS and a member of the
Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism,
which just happened to sponsor a 2002 anti-war rally at which Obama spoke,
and which just happened to have been organized by Marilyn Katz, a
former SDS activist and later public relations consultant,
who just happened to be a long-time friend of Obama's political
hatchet man, David Axelrod.
Obama joined Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC), whose pastor was
Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a fiery orator
who just happened to preach Marxism and Black Liberation Theology and
who delivered anti-white, anti-Jew and anti-American sermons,
which Obama just happened never to hear because he just happened to
miss church only on the days when Wright was at his "most
and Obama just happened never to notice that Oprah Winfrey left the
church because it was too radical, and
just happened never to notice that the church gave the vile
anti-Semitic Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan a lifetime
Although no one had ever heard of him at the time, Obama just happened
to receive an impossible-to-believe $125,000 advance to write a book
about race relations,
which he just happened to fail to write, while using the cash to
vacation in Bali with his wife Michelle,
and despite his record of non-writing, he just happened to receive a
second advance, for $40,000, from another publisher, and
he eventually completed a manuscript called Dreams From My Father,
which just happened to strongly reflect the writing style of William Ayers,
who just happened to trample on an American flag for the cover
photograph of the popular Chicago Magazine,
which Obama just happened never to see even though it appeared on
newsstands throughout the city.
Obama was hired by the law firm Miner, Banhill and Galland,
which just happened to specialize in negotiating state government
contracts to develop low-income housing, and
which just happened to deal with now-imprisoned Tony Rezko and his
firm Rezar, and with slumlord Valerie Jarrett, and
the law firm's Judson Miner just happened to have been a classmate of
Bernardine Dohrn, wife of William Ayers.
In 1994 Obama represented ACORN and another plaintiff in a lawsuit
against Citibank for denying mortgages to blacks (Buycks-Roberson v.
Citibank Federal Savings Bank),
and the lawsuit just happened to result in banks being blackmailed
subprime loans for poor credit risks, a trend which just happened to
and which just happened to contribute to the collapse of the housing bubble,
which just happened to help Obama defeat John McCain in the 2008
In 1996 Obama ran for the Illinois State Senate and joined the "New Party,
which just happened to promote Marxism, and
Obama was supported by Dr. Quentin Yong, a socialist
who just happened to support a government takeover of the health care system.
In late 1999 Obama purportedly engaged in cocaine-snorting in the back
of a limousine with a man named Larry Sinclair,
who claims he was contacted in late 2007 by Donald Young,
who just happened to be the choir director of Obama's Chicago church
and who shared information with Sinclair about Obama,
and Young just happened to be murdered on December 23, 2007,
just weeks after Larry Bland, another member of the church just
happened to be murdered,
and both murders just happened to have never been solved.
In 2008, Sinclair held a press conference to discuss his claims, and
just happened to be arrested immediately after the event,
based on a warrant issued by Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who
just happens to be the son of Joe Biden.
In 2003 Obama and his wife attended a dinner in honor of Rashid
Khalidi, who just happened to be a former PLO operative, harsh critic
of Israel, and advocate of Palestinian rights,
and who Obama claims he does not know, even though the Obamas just happened to
have dined more than once at the home of Khalidi and his wife, Mona,
and just happened to have used them as occasional baby-sitters.
Obama reportedly praised Khalidi at the decidedly anti-Semitic event,
which William Ayers just happened to also attend,
and the event Obama pretends he never attended was sponsored by the
Arab American Action Network,
to which Obama just happened to have funneled cash while serving on
the board of the Woods Fund with William Ayers,
and one speaker at the dinner remarked that if Palestinians cannot
secure a return of their land, Israel "will never see a day of peace,"
and entertainment at the dinner included a Muslim children's dance
whose performances just happened to include simulated beheadings with
fake swords, and stomping on American, Israeli and British flags, and
Obama allegedly told the audience that "Israel has no God-given right
to occupy Palestine"
and there has been "genocide against the Palestinian people by (the) Israelis."
The Los Angeles Times has a videotape of the event but just happens to
refuse to make it public.
In the 2004 Illinois Democrat primary race for the U.S. Senate,
front-runner Blair Hull just happened to be forced out of the race
after David Axelrod just happened to manage to get Hull's sealed
divorce records unsealed,
which just happened to enable Obama to win the primary, so he could
face popular Republican Jack Ryan,
whose sealed child custody records from his divorce just happened to
become unsealed, forcing Ryan to withdraw from the race,
which just happened to enable the unqualified Obama to waltz into the
U.S. Senate, where, after a mere 143 days of work, he just happened to
decide he was qualified to run for President of the United States.
What fools we are!
