Next for Judge Kavanaugh: Are There Any Honorable Senate Democrats?

Dianne Feinstein
by Newt Gingrich: After the unbelievably savage and despicable effort to destroy Judge Brett Kavanaugh through false and dishonest personal attacks, the burden should be on the Senate Democrats.

The New Yorker smear was an absurdity. A woman could only remember a self-described drunken event after six days of discussion with her attorney. Everyone connected with the event repudiates her attack on Judge Kavanaugh.

The Avenatti client’s claim of a series of gang rapes was beyond unbelievable. Classmates and high school friends of Kavanaugh simply repudiated her as a liar making up a fantasy assault on the nominee.

Another absurd attack came from a mother whose daughter promptly says nothing happened, and her mother is simply wrong. The daughter goes on to affirm Judge Kavanaugh’s decency as someone she briefly dated and remembers fondly.

Senator Grassley’s staff received messages containing vicious threats, such as they deserve to be raped (these messages, by the way, should be tracked down by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted).

The Kavanaugh family received death threats (which again, should be tracked down and prosecuted).

Dr. Ford and her family have received death threats after being forced into the Democrats’ scheme (these should also be tracked down and prosecuted).

Judge Kavanaugh’s wife and two young daughters have had to endure vicious, humiliating, personal attacks on their husband and father.

Dr. Ford has been manipulated by the Democrats, who hid her letter for over a month, dragged her into the national limelight, and urged her avoid meeting with the GOP staff. One excuse she used was that she was afraid to fly (the interviewer pointed out during the hearing that Ford had made numerous flights for vacations).

She was put through all of this even though she could not remember in what house the alleged gathering and assault took place in or when it occurred. At the same time, no one she said was present has corroborated her story.

She was emotionally compelling, and it is clear that something happened to her – but she knows as a professional psychologist that 36 years after an event, people can vividly remember things that aren’t true.

If Judge Kavanaugh can be defeated by this kind of manufactured and manipulated process, what reasonable conservative would ever put his or her name up for Senate confirmation?

Some people have said Judge Kavanaugh should have been better vetted. How could he have been? He has undergone six separate, thorough FBI background checks for top positions throughout government.

Further, he says he never did any of the things for which he is being attacked. He could not have known in advance how to defend himself against allegations that he didn’t do. It’s impossible to plan or anticipate last-minute character assassinations that are based on falsehoods and impossible-to-verify charges.

So, the key to the next stage is not the Republicans.

The real question is: Are there any Democrats who are disgusted by this process of dishonest character assassination and manipulation? Are any upset that this is becoming their party’s operating pattern?

Are there any Democrats whose sense of decency forces them to vote “yes” for a decent man, whose entire public career has exemplified honesty, sincerity, and patriotism?

Are there any Democrats who understand that a 36-year-old, unsupported allegation can’t possibly be the standard for blocking a U.S. Supreme Court nominee?

If no Democrat has the courage to vote for decency, honesty, and a sense of fairness, then we are truly in deep trouble as a country.

The focus for the next few days ought to be on the Democrats.

Let us see what kind of a party they have become.

Rule of the Democratic Mob

by Rick Manning: The Senate confirmation process of Judge Brett Kavanaugh showed America the bared teeth of the new Democrat socialist movement.

Unhinged protestors with blood-stained crotches disrupting Senate proceedings were disturbing enough, but the acceptance and affirmation of those who either currently or have in the past held power is particularly shocking.

Moderate Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was uncharacteristically blunt when he indicted Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats, saying, “Boy, you all want power. God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham. That you knew about it and you held it. You had no intention of protecting Dr. Ford; none. She's as much of a victim you [Kavanaugh] are.”

In one brief moment, the entire Democrat Socialist left was exposed. A power-desperate mob willing to destroy anyone or anything in its path. The unmasked evil of the violent Antifa mobs dressed up in suits and dresses and posing as respectable members of the Senate demanding that an uncorroborated accuser not have her past or even present examined, while poring over the three-and-a-half decade-old yearbook of the accused.

The mob’s demand that the accuser be believed in spite of the fact that every shred of evidence indicates that her memory is wrong with multiple people named in the complaint saying it just didn’t happen. Meanwhile this demand to automatically believe the accuser throws the core American presumption of innocence for the accused and due process away like a used tissue.

And like a child throwing a grocery store temper tantrum demanding that mommy kill the store clerk, the left has gone nuclear with not-so-veiled attacks on Senator Graham, and the doxing of Graham and fellow senators Lee and Hatch from someone with a House of Representatives email address is just the start of an intensifying attack from the legitimized Democrat Ambush Machine.

Ever since violence against Trump supporters was supported by local officials in cities like San Jose, Calif., as legitimate, followed by the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise by a Bernie Sanders supporter and the subsequent violent attack on Senator Rand Paul, it has been clear that the left will stop at nothing to intimidate their enemies.

What is different is that the Democratic Party elected officials are now effectively sanctioning the violence through their rhetoric and acceptance of this radical mob as their grassroots constituency.

Now, Senator Jeff Flake and others within the GOP have succeeded in forcing one last act of responding to the demands of the mob by invoking another one-week delay so the president can tell the FBI to re-open the investigation for a short, pre-determined amount of time.

It will not satisfy the Democrats or the mob as proven by subsequent announcements by red state Senators Donnelly and Tester that they will vote no on Kavanaugh. Flake should know that Neville Chamberlain tried appeasement and proved that there is no assuaging a mass political mob determined to impose their will on others. The mob leaves you only two options — stand up to it or surrender.

In the week ahead, it can be predicted with reasonable certainty that more senators, House members, staffers and Kavanaugh supporters will be threatened, accosted and abused. It can be reasonably predicted that Senate Democrats will continue playing victim to their fundraising audience and ratcheting up the tension amongst their mentally unstable minority gang, and nothing will change.

Chuck Schumer will still be demanding that the nomination be sent back to committee for the further questioning of witnesses, and the uncorroborated charges will still be uncorroborated. Because this isn’t about the charges, it is about destroying Brett Kavanaugh’s ability to function on the Supreme Court. It isn’t about Christine Ford, it is about Donald Trump’s ability to choose an extremely well qualified person to become a Supreme Court justice. It isn’t about the rule of law, it is about raw power.

The political violence and Democrat refusal to accept the outcome of an election is eerily similar to past Democrats' willingness to fire on Fort Sumter rather than accept Lincoln’s election.

And the more the Republicans give in to the Democrat/Antifa mob, the more it demands until capitulation becomes the only answer.

When the vote for the Kavanaugh confirmation occurs, much more is at stake for America than a single Supreme Court nominee, because if the emboldened mob wins, America herself is in danger of being consumed by it.

The Senate's Fight for Justice

by Tony Perkins: Some day, years from now when Americans look back on this moment, I hope they see more than Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Ford. I hope, in a country raw and torn apart, they see a little girl, asking her parents if they should "pray for the woman" whose allegations fueled a political war that would turn their family's proudest moment into one of its darkest chapters. I hope that instead of two people on the stand, they see a broken political process there instead. Most of all, I hope they see a turning point in a nation that desperately needs one.

After today's vote, Brett Kavanaugh will almost certainly go on to become the next Supreme Court justice. But unfortunately for him and his family, it may be years before what he does on the bench finally overshadows what he endured to get on it. For Brett and his family, these are scars he'll carry with him the rest of his life. But in a country where the majority of Americans can't even name a single Supreme Court justice, this may have been exactly the wake-up call we needed.

For the first time in a long time, millions of people stopped what they were doing and watched -- on planes, in bars, on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Every single one of them saw for themselves the embarrassment this process has become. For once, Americans understood how far the liberal establishment was willing to go -- and how many lives it was willing to ruin -- to keep its grip on the courts. They watched two decent people become victims, both broken by a broken system that puts its trust in a place the Founders never intended. And maybe, just maybe, they'll decide to do something about it.

As hellacious as it was, yesterday's hearing may be the tipping point in a decades-long battle to hold Congress accountable. After all, it's their fault the courts have this much power to begin with. As Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebr.) lamented, "When we don't do a lot of big political debating here in Congress, we transfer it to the Supreme Court. And that's why the court is increasingly a substitute political battleground... It's only nine people. You can know them; you can demonize them; you can try to make them messiahs." But you can't fire them. And what happens? They become "superlegislators [trying] to right the wrongs from other places in the process."

We used to be a country that arrived at consensus through the legislative system. Not anymore. The court short-circuited that process with the help of 435 people too concerned about keeping their jobs to do them. "The solution," Sasse points out, "is not to try to find judges who will be policy makers or to turn the Supreme Court into an election battle. The solution is to restore a proper constitutional order with the balance of powers. We need a Congress that writes laws, then stands before the people and faces the consequences."

Until then, we're destined to repeat the disgrace of the last 10 days. Imagine what the people on President Trump's Supreme Court short list must be thinking, watching a pillar of the legal community destroyed on national television for an accusation not a single person has corroborated. Are they scouring their high school yearbooks and diaries, wondering what Democrats might use to demolish them? It's no wonder Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) couldn't sit quiet any longer. His passionate, impromptu speech -- maybe one of the greatest the chamber has ever heard -- should have snapped everyone back to the personal and institutional damage that had been done.

"If you wanted an FBI investigation, you could have come to us. What you [Democrats] want to do is destroy this guy's life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020. You've said that. Not me.

You got nothing to apologize for. When [you see Justices] Sotomayor and Kagan, say hello because I voted for them. I'd never do to them what you've done to this guy. This is the most unethical sham since I've been in politics and if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn't have done what you've done to this guy. Are you a gang rapist?

I cannot imagine what you and your family have gone through. Boy, you all want power. God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham. That you knew about it and you held it. You had no intention of protecting Dr. Ford. None.

She's as much of a victim as you are. God, I hate to say it because these have been my friends, but let me tell you, when it comes to this, you're looking for a fair process, you came to the wrong town at the wrong time, my friend. To my Republican colleagues, if you vote no, you're legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics..."
Senate Democrats want you to believe that the FBI could have rolled in with their forensic trucks and found out what really happened that summer day of 1982. That their agents, through a power no one's heard of, could have discovered something this committee hadn't. That's absurd. This was the investigation. The two most important witnesses were testifying right in front of them, under oath. The only thing the FBI could have done is give liberals the delay they needed to kick the confirmation into next year.

But unfortunately for the Kavanaughs, this was never about getting to the truth. This was about getting to the courts, the last best hope for the liberal agenda. All we can hope now -- not just for Brett, but for Ashley, their girls, and parents -- is that this horrible ordeal becomes a galvanizing moment for America. That we refuse to let what happened to them happen again. And that the legacy of Kavanaugh is a more civil process for everyone.

Judgment Day, An Epic Hearing, Not Over Yet

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Judgment Day - As I am sending this to you, the Senate Judiciary Committee is supposed to vote any moment on Judge Kavanaugh's nomination. Hopefully by the time you are reading this, Kavanaugh's nomination will have advanced to the Senate floor.

Politico reports that Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who assisted Judiciary Committee Republicans with the questioning of Dr. Ford yesterday, offered her professional opinion to Republicans in a closed-door caucus meeting.

She said that "as a prosecutor she would not charge Kavanaugh or even pursue a search warrant" based on the gaps in Ford's testimony and contradictory statements from alleged witnesses.

And yet it is far from certain that Kavanaugh will survive these smears.

Please call your senators at 202-224-3121.

Some senators are still on the fence. But even if they have already declared a position, it is important for them to hear from their constituents.

An Epic Hearing - If you missed yesterday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, you missed some real fireworks. Here are a few of the most revealing and significant moments from yesterday's hearing.

Judge Kavanaugh first became emotional when sharing a story about his 10 year-old daughter, Eliza, saying they should pray for Dr. Ford during her nighttime prayers.

What does that tell you about the atmosphere in the Kavanaugh household during what must have been one of the worst weeks of their lives?

It tells you that those young girls were not hearing bitter parents berating a woman who was being used by the left to destroy their father. What they likely heard was compassion and grace from Brett and Ashley Kavanaugh.

But as Judge Kavanaugh was telling this story, I couldn't help but notice the anguish on Mrs. Kavanaugh's face, who was sitting behind her husband as he struggled at times to speak.

I think you can say with certainty that every Democrat senator in that room and every left-wing commentator have abused Ashley Kavanaugh and her daughters.

I wrote yesterday that Judge Kavanaugh indicted the left's "rule or ruin" agenda more effectively than even my friend Clarence Thomas did.

He looked at one Democrat senator after another and denounced their outrageous statements. He called out Cory Booker for saying Kavanaugh and his supporters are evil. He called out the left-wing groups that are smearing him. And he called out the Clintons for seeking revenge for his service on Ken Starr's team.

No doubt one of the most powerful moments was Senator Lindsey Graham's epic rant. I believe those five minutes will go down in American political history.

I know Graham has often disappointed conservatives. But he nailed Democrats to the wall and put wavering Republicans on notice. Here's some of what he said:

"If you [Democrats] wanted a FBI investigation, you could have come to us. What you want to do is destroy this guy's life, hold this seat open and hope you win in 2020. You've said that, not me. . .

"This is the most unethical sham since I've been in politics. And if you really wanted to know the truth, you sure as hell wouldn't have done what you've done to this guy. . . Boy, you all want power. God, I hope you never get it. I hope the American people can see through this sham. . .

"To my Republican colleagues, if you vote no, you're legitimizing the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics."

I was also struck by the way the hearing ended. Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) asked Judge Kavanaugh if he believed in God. He immediately answered, "I do."

So Kennedy told the judge to look him in the eye and swear "in front of God and country" that he did not assault Christine Ford, Deborah Ramirez or Julie Swetnick. It was a great bookend to little Eliza's prayer. Watch it here:

Not Over Yet - My friends, steel yourselves. You must understand how big this battle is.

This is not normal politics anymore. This is not about governing. This battle is about control. And if the left gets power again, it is making it clear that there will be no more "constitutional niceties."

Believe it or not, Democrat senators are vowing to investigate Justice Kavanaugh if he is confirmed and if Democrats regain power after the elections.

But that's not all. Hillary Clinton's supporters and former campaign aides are already plotting to impeach Justice Kavanaugh if he is confirmed. They are not only targeting Republican senators up for election this year, but in 2020 too!

The Constitution was meant to limit government, to protect the people from government control. Yet we have heard time and time again that there is no presumption of innocence for Judge Kavanaugh. Who's next for the left's kangaroo courts and mob justice?

This must not be America's future! We must defeat the left!

Female Christian Victims Of Boko Haram

. . . And leftist feminists’ deafening silence.
by Jack Kerwick: Among the world’s suffering masses are the adherents of Christianity, the most persecuted of religions. Indeed, aside from what our establishment media would like you to believe, it is not Muslims who constitute the most oppressed of the world’s religions. It is Christians. Moreover, about 80% of the time, the oppression under which Christians in Africa and the Middle East are made to live is inflicted upon them by Islam.

And unlike women, or at least self-described “feminist” women, in the West who would have us think that they’re injured every time a man (or, more specifically, a white heterosexual man) fails to use gender-neutral pronouns, or expresses his opposition to abortion, Christian women in places like Nigeria are made to genuinely suffer.

Take the case of Leah Sharibu. Leah is a 15 year-old Nigerian, a Christian, who was taken from her family by Boko Haram thugs eight months ago. Yet recently, matters took another turn.

According to Open Doors, an organization dedicated to helping persecuted Christians, Boko Haram is now threatening to murder Leah unless the demands that it has issued to the Nigerian government are met. Considering that it just released a video of the murder of a 25 year-old aid worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross, Saifura Hussaini Ahmed Khorsa, a woman who it was holding along with Leah, Boko Haram’s threats must be taken seriously.

Khorsa was kidnapped on March 1 when Boko Haram set upon the town of Rann, near the Cameroon border. In addition to Leah, two other women were abducted, two relief workers—Hauwa Mohammed Liman, a midwife employed by the International Committee of the Red Cross, and Alice Loksha Ngaddah, a nurse for UNICEF.

Upon releasing the video of the murder of Khorsa, a spokesperson for Boko Haram announced that the terrorist organization had “contacted the government through writing and…audio messages,” but to no avail.

This being so, Boko Haram would leave “a message of blood.”

The message is simple: “The other nurse and midwife will be executed in similar manner in one month, including Leah Sharibu.”

Leah was kidnapped on February 13 of this year when Boko Haram attacked her school and carried off 100 girls. Every other girl had been released since then. Leah is the only one who remains in captivity because, remarkably, she refused to renounce Christ.

Recently, Boko Haram released what is thought to be a “scripted” audio recording of Leah:“I also plead to the members of the public to help my mother, my father, my younger brother and relatives. Kindly help me out of my predicament. I am begging you to treat me with compassion. I am calling on the government, particularly the President, to pity me and get me out of this serious situation. Thank you.”>/i>Emanuel Egebe, a Nigerian activist based in the United States, notes that in murdering an aide worker—and an Islamic worker at that—Boko Haram has changed strategies and upped the ante. “To my knowledge,” Egebe remarked, “this is the first execution by Boko Haram of an aid worker for failure to respond to a demand.”

Egebe continued:

“Boko Haram generally executes Christian males who refuse to convert, men and women—Christian or Muslim—who work for security services…It is contrary to Boko Haram’s rules of engagement to execute Muslim women [.]”

He concludes that just “when you don’t think they can sink any lower, they hit a new nadir!”

To be sure, it isn’t that Boko Haram has had any reservations about murdering “United Nations diplomats and aid workers…including Korean doctors, polio vaccinators, etc.” Yet “this is the first execution for failure to meet their ransom demands.”

Egebe, though, is as much in the dark as anyone else as to what exactly it is Boko Haram is demanding from the Nigerian government.

In the meantime, the fate of this young Christian woman, Leah Sharibu, and two other female aid workers hangs in the balance.

Yet the self-styled champions of women and enemies of “Islamophobia” in the West won’t utter a peep about this ugly fact.

Violent Crime Down in 2017

by NRA-ILA: The FBI released its annual Crime in the United States report earlier this week. The report aggregates crime data, including offender and victim information, from law enforcement agencies across the country. About 90% of law enforcement agencies participated. From the FBI’s press release:

“After two consecutive years of increases, the estimated number of violent crimes in the nation decreased 0.2 percent in 2017 when compared with 2016 data, according to FBI figures released today. Property crimes dropped 3.0 percent, marking the 15th consecutive year the collective estimates for these offenses declined.

The 2017 statistics show the estimated rate of violent crime was 382.9 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants, and the estimated rate of property crime was 2,362.2 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants. The violent crime rate fell 0.9 percent when compared with the 2016 rate; the property crime rate declined 3.6 percent.”

There were 17,284 murders in 2017 – a rate of 5.3 murders per 100,000 people. This represents a 1.85% decrease in the murder rate.

There are some interesting points in the underlying data. The violent crime rate peaked in cities with populations between 500,000 and a million residents, and, generally speaking, the violent crime rate decreased with population. Murder rates adhere to a similar pattern. Chicago saw 112 fewer murders in 2017 than in 2016, which was the most in two decades. Atlanta saw a 28% reduction in murders. Baltimore had the highest homicide rate of large U.S. cities – 56 homicides per 100,000 people. Chicago was fourth. St. Louis, with a smaller population than Baltimore, had a murder rate of 66 per 100,000 people.

The FBI received supplemental information concerning the type of weapon used for 15,129 homicides. Overall, the number of murders, aggravated assaults, and robberies committed with a firearm of any type decreased by 0.4%.

The number of murders committed with a firearm declined 1.4% from 2016 to 2017. This includes a 2.4% decrease in murders with a handgun. The number of murders involving a rifle of any kind increased 6.6% due to the horrific attacks in Las Vegas and Sutherland Springs. Outside of those two attacks, the number of rifle murders decreased 15.9%. The number of people killed with their attacker’s fists, hands, or feet increased 4%. There were 696 people killed in such a manner – more than 72% more than killed with a rifle of any kind.

The number of robberies decreased from 332,797 in 2016 to 319,356 in 2017 – a decrease of 4%. The number of robberies committed with a firearm decreased by 5.4%. Aggravated assaults overall increased by 3% - the same rate at which the number of aggravated assaults with a firearm increased. The number of such crimes committed with fists or feet increased by 1.9%, and those committed with a knife decreased 1.4%.

Of course, the key takeaways are that violent crime, murder, and property crime are all down. More good news is likely on the way. A preliminary analysis of 2018 crime data from police departments in the 30 largest U.S. cities by the Brennan Center released last week projected the 2018 murder rate to be 7.6% lower than the 2017 rate. Keep in mind, the decrease in crime is occurring as a record number of Americans are obtaining permits to carry concealed firearms.

Somalis Riot at Minnesota Amusement Park, Forcing Evacuation

by Laura Loomer: On Saturday September 22, 2018 at the ValleyFair amusement park in Shakopee, Minnesota, police and emergency responders had to evacuate all guests after a mob of Somali teenagers and men rushed through security and caused several violent fights to break out inside the park.

According to eyewitnesses who were at the park to celebrate Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, a group of nearly 100 Somali men mob rushed past security and amusement park staffers at the front entrance, and proceeded to run through the park and instigate fights among themselves and with guests.

As several violent fights broke out, guests began to panic as reports of people being stabbed and shot began to circulate.

Cliff Hallberg, who was inside the park with his children at the time the fights broke out said it was very frightening for his children. “I saw about 60 Somali teenagers push their way through lines and scream at guests.”

Hallberg said tickets to the ValleyScare Halloween themed amusement park are usually expensive, which is why he attended on LEO appreciation day, as he himself is a member of law enforcement and received discounted tickets.

“I’ll take my kids back to ValleyFair someday when I can afford it. I’m just glad I got my kids out safely,” Hallberg said.

The violent fights erupted during Law enforcement appreciation day when the park was full of police officers and other members of law enforcement who received discounted tickets so that their families could enjoy the amusement park. An estimated 263 police officers responded to the fights inside the park, according to witnesses.

“This looked like a targeted attack on law enforcement,” Hallberg added.

Hallberg also told Big League Politics that his car was spit on and that the rioters were setting off car alarms and causing chaos in the parking lot, all of which can be seen in video that was exclusively obtained by this reporter.

In the video, a woman who was evacuated and filming from inside her car can be heard saying, “Oh my god! We are never going to make it out of here.”

Following reports of the fights, ValleyFair tweeted, “There were incidents on September 22 at Valleyfair that required assistance on property from Shakopee police officers and were quickly addressed. The safety of our guests is our top priority.”
What ValleyFair failed to mention in their tweet is that the fights were so violent that Shakopee police officers had to evacuate the entire park which was full of children. The spokesperson for the park also never disclosed that a police K-9 unit was called to the scene, ambulances and firetrucks responded, and a police helicopter was ordered to fly above the park as people were being evacuated, all of which was caught on video.

A Facebook post posted by one of the ValleyFair attendees noted,

“Just left ValleyFair. Several Somalians fighting, knocking over Halloween props, knocking people over Halloween props, knocking people over terrorizing young children. ValleyFair shut down. Somalians pushing kids over. Running from police in the parking lot in circles. I stood in front of about 15 lost and terrified young children until their parents could find them.”

After guests were evacuated, ValleyFair park remained closed for the rest of the night, something the amusement park failed to mention when they referred to the violent fights on Twitter as a “previously mentioned incident”.

According to eyewitnesses and police officers who wish to remain anonymous, they believe the media is covering up the fact that the violent rioters were Somali men because the media and police don’t want to offend the Muslim Somali population or influence the upcoming election.

Officers in Minnesota have told this reporter that they are often told to avoid using the word Somali when discussing crimes committed by members of the Somali population because police and local Democrats have asked them to “stand down” in an effort to create positive community relations between Minnesota natives and the continually increasing Muslim Somali “refugee” population.

In the United States, Minnesota is the state with the largest Somali population.

On Tuesday, it was reported that Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison( D-MN), who is currently embattled in a domestic violence scandal and running for Minnesota Attorney General, is leading an effort to force President Trump to accept and permanently resettle nearly 110,000 more Muslim “refugees” in Minnesota, most of which will be from Somalia.

Peggy Tierney, a Minnesota native, posted on her Facebook about the incident:

“I also have video of the Somali boys in the parking lot. This explains why the media and police are covering it up. They can’t have a negative narrative against the Somali community before midterms when Keith Ellison, Ilhan Omar, Mohamud Noor, and Hodan Hassan are running for office in Minnesota.”

The Minnesota election is November 6, 2018.

How Abortion Polarized America

Michael Barone
by Michael Barone: Here's my question," tweets legal scholar Jeffrey A. Sachs, obviously in response to the controversy over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "what is the alternative reality where Roe was never decided, levels of partisan polarization are identical to our own, and the SCOTUS appointments process is markedly better?"

Here's the problem with the question: If Roe v. Wade had never been decided, if the Supreme Court had just declined to hear cases challenging the constitutionality of abortion bans, levels of partisan polarization would not be anything like what we see around us.

That's my conclusion, and the conclusion of New York Times columnist Ross Douthat. "You'd still have some of the same breakdowns and derangements," he tweeted in response to Sachs, "but America's distinctive kind of ideological sorting-out was not by any means predictable from the vantage point of 1970 or 1975."

It certainly wasn't. At the time, by legalizing abortion everywhere, Roe seemed to be taking the nation where it was already going. In the five years before the decision was handed down in January 1973, 16 states with 41 percent of the nation's population had liberalized their abortion laws. Legislatures in other states might have done so later that year.

Most of the nation seemed headed to the abortion regime that has prevailed in most of Europe, where abortion is generally legal, but not as late in pregnancies as required by Roe and subsequent cases. And in a no-Roe America, just as in no-Roe Europe, different places might have had different abortion laws, changeable though the ordinary political process.

The unusually sweeping nature of the opinion in Roe may be due to its having been written by Harry Blackmun, the only one of the 113 Supreme Court justices in history to have devoted most of his prejudicial legal career to being counsel to the Mayo Clinic, defending doctors. Doctors, of course, not pregnant women, were usually the targets of abortion prosecutions.

Far from settling opinion on abortion, Roe made it a national political issue and the focus of national politics. In the 1970s, it cut across party lines: There were plenty of pro-Roe Republicans and anti-Roe Democrats. Conventional politicians dreaded that it would cost them voters from their own party and not gain any from the other.

In my home state of Michigan, for example, former Republican Gov. William Milliken, a wealthy Yale graduate, strongly favored legalized abortion. Former Democratic House Speaker William Ryan, a union supporter who lived next door to a nunnery, was strongly opposed.

Some longtime Republicans were miffed when then-President Ronald Reagan went out of his way in the 1980s to spotlight his opposition to abortion, but his vice president and successor George H.W. Bush followed his lead. Then Democrats blocked anti-abortion then-Gov. Bob Casey of Pennsylvania from speaking at their 1992 national convention.

It soon became clear to aspiring politicians that, outside a few states, there was no future for a pro-life Democrat or a pro-choice Republican. And among voters, views on abortion and party identification had largely converged by 2000. The abortion issue has been the source of most of the controversy in debates over Supreme Court nominees at least since Clarence Thomas in 1991.

What accounts for the lasting influence of this issue? One reason is that Americans are closely divided and, depending on how the issue is framed, ambivalent. Most don't want to ban abortions altogether, but most favor just about every proposed limitation.

Second, opinion hasn't shifted. In the last 15 years, most Americans moved from opposing to favoring same-sex marriage, but opinion on abortion has scarcely budged. Young voters are, if anything, less supportive of abortion rights than their elders.

Third, opinion on this issue is based on moral values of central importance to the way people live their lives. For pro-choicers, the issue is a proxy for personal autonomy. For pro-lifers, it's a question of extinguishing human lives. Things a lot more important to people than whether the minimum wage goes up a dollar or the income tax rate goes down a percent.

So we get, as Douthat puts it, "partisan sorting based on religiosity, which accelerates polarization by theologizing it." Which helps to explain the vehemence of the fight over Judge Kavanaugh's nomination and, in my opinion, the unscrupulousness of its opponents.

What's curious is that on this issue, President Trump's words and actions have been largely dignified and defensible. Which shows that's possible even in a polarized partisan atmosphere.

Physician-Assisted Suicide Claiming Nearly One Life Per Day in California

Jerry Cox, Contributing Author: Last week we wrote about public opinion polling on assisted suicide and euthanasia. In short, while Americans generally say they think physician-assisted suicide ought to be legal, weekly churchgoers strongly oppose assisted suicide, and support for suicide and euthanasia rises or falls depending on how pollsters describe the issue.

This week we want to highlight a report from California showing hundreds of people have ended their lives under the state’s physician-assisted suicide program since 2016.

Over the summer the California Department of Public Health published a set of findings that noted 374 people died by ingesting a lethal prescription from a doctor in 2017.

Adding to that the 111 people who died by assisted suicide in the last part of 2016, physician-assisted suicide claimed 485 lives in its first 18 months of operation in California. That comes out to nearly one death every day for a year and a half!

California’s 2017 report once again shows most people who opt for physician-assisted suicide are well-educated. This corroborates surveys conducted in Oregon and Canada as well as information published in California last year showing most people who inquire about assisted suicide are actually educated, affluent individuals who are much more concerned about losing their autonomy than they are about pain and suffering. Instead of being referred to a mental health specialist or offered other assistance, most of these patients simply receive a lethal prescription for drugs they can use to commit suicide.

Being pro-life means believing human life is sacred from conception until natural death, and it means opposing the taking of human life without just cause.

While the term “pro-life” is often applied to work related to abortion, opposition to suicide and euthanasia falls under the purview of pro-life work as well.

Just like abortion, assisted-suicide fails to acknowledge that God is the creator and giver of life. Human life is sacred, and no sickness gives us an excuse to end someone’s life prematurely — including our own.

Simply put: Physician-assisted suicide violates human dignity and the sanctity of human life.

Suicide Rate Rising​

by Kerby Anderson, Contributing Author: The suicide rate in America is increasing. That not only makes it an important public health issue. It has also become an election year issue.

Antonio Delgado is a congressional candidate in New York. His tweet explained that, “Suicide rates increased in nearly every state from 1999 through 2016, including an increase of 29% in NY. We must commit funding to help those suffering from mental health conditions and let them know that they are not alone.” Illinois congressional candidate Sara Dady reported that, “Suicide rates are up across gender and age in the US. Take a minute on World Suicide Prevention Day today and tell someone that they are important to you – it could save a life.”

First, let me assure you that the numbers I just cited are correct. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the suicide rate rose in all but one state, with increases across age, gender, and ethnicity. It is also worth noting that in more than half of those suicides in 27 states, the people had no known mental health conditions before they ended their lives.

Second, suicide is being viewed not only as a mental health problem but as a public health one. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death. Suicides account for more than twice as many deaths as homicides.

Finally, there are many reasons for suicide. Mental health professionals point to the economic downturn ten years ago. The dramatic rise in opioid addiction is another reason. A third concern is “suicide contagion.” That is the idea that exposure to suicide may increase the chance of suicide for some.

Suicide has become a major public health issue, and that’s why we are hearing more about it in political campaigns.

Pro-Kavanaugh Rally. Here’s What 8 Women Had to Say.

by Troy Worden: An hour before it started to rain, a crowd of women gathered Thursday on Capitol Hill just before the much-anticipated Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on accusations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Of several late-breaking accusations leveled against Kavanaugh, only one—the claim by Christine Blasey Ford that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both teens—was the subject of the committee hearing.

The women who attended the Concerned Women for America’s rally for Kavanaugh didn’t come to protest Kavanaugh; they mostly came to support him.

Many wore shirts or buttons boldly declaring, “I stand with Brett” or “Confirm Brett Kavanaugh.”

The women were of different ethnicities, ages, occupations, and parts of the country. Some had definite opinions about the accused and the accusers; others did not. But what united them was a common desire to hear one another out, even if they didn’t exactly agree on everything.

Taking a break from listening to each other, eight women shared their thoughts and feelings on the accused, the accusers, and the #MeToo movement with The Daily Signal.

1. ‘We’ve seen how accusations can destroy people’s lives.’
Sonia Casey, a real estate investor from Fort Washington, Maryland, describes herself as a “very conservative Republican.”

Casey, 55, came to the rally to support Kavanaugh and thinks he is “a good example to our kids,” referencing his previously spotless record.

“We’ve seen unjust accusations all day,” she laments to The Daily Signal, adding that the accusations “make no sense” in the context of everything else she knows about Kavanaugh.

But the accusations against Kavanaugh matter to Casey at a deeper level: She says she is a survivor of sexual assault.

“I want to believe it, because I’ve been through it at 4 years old,” she says, but not without qualification. “I’m a woman, so I’ll support women, but we’ve seen how accusations can destroy people’s lives.”

When asked what she thinks is motivating the allegations, she shrugs and replies: “The accusations are due to money floating around.”

2. ‘What the Salem witch trials did.’
Gail Weiss isn’t shy about calling herself “Jewish and conservative.” She also isn’t shy about telling people why she attended the rally today either.

Weiss, who describes herself as a “concerned citizen,” seems sold on Kavanaugh’s legal expertise.

“I’m a big fan of the Constitution,” she says, “and he seems to be protecting it, so that’s why I would like to see him on the Supreme Court.”

“I am here because the fascists who oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh on the mere basis of totally unsubstantiated allegations are leading us down [the wrong path],” Weiss tells The Daily Signal.

She describes the path the country is on as “the path of the Martin Niemöller quote from World War II, except now you can replace the first line with ‘First they came for Brett Kavanaugh.’”

The Bethesda, Maryland, native says she sees a clear relationship between the Kavanaugh allegations and those lodged against Bill Clinton in the 1990s; she errs on the side of caution when speaking about the truthfulness of Kavanaugh’s accusers.

“It’s not what I think, it’s what proof has been shown so far,” she says. “If they show proof, I will believe proof. So far there has not been any proof. There is no blue dress with any DNA on it.”

But she warns:If there is no proof, then it is utterly antithetical to a democratic republic to convict someone even in the court of public opinion, to convict someone solely on an allegation. That was what the Salem witch trials did.Weiss says she sees a further connection between the #MeToo movement and the persecution of straight, white, Christian males, although she thinks that all men, not just those in that category, “should be very, very concerned.”

3. ‘#MeToo … never helped the victims of Bill Clinton’
Juanita Broaddrick needs no introduction to those who have followed her story since the days of the presidency of Bill Clinton, whom she accused of raping her decades ago.

Now 75, Broaddrick didn’t hesitate in stating that she was “here to point out the double standard we have” with regard to how her charges and Ford’s allegations have been treated.

“They refused to see, or even look at my records,” she says of Democrat lawmakers in an interview with The Daily Signal:Not one Democrat would read this. They wanted nothing to do with it. And now they’re here with sketchy and vague allegations against Brett Kavanaugh? This is a travesty, this is not right.

But the Van Buren, Arkansas, resident has a unique if fraught relationship with the #MeToo movement. On one hand she is a perfect example of how men may have abused their power to take advantage of women and get away with it; on the other, politicians no longer are interested in pursuing her allegations against a former president.
When asked about the #MeToo movement, Broaddrick responds:I don’t have any idea … as far as if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. I’m sure the #MeToo [movement] has helped people, but it never helped the victims of Bill Clinton. It wanted nothing to do with us.”Broaddrick notes that upon finding out that Time magazine was awarding the movement its coveted “Person of the Year” honor, “I was kind of excited.”

So excited that she gave a favorable comment to the publication, expecting it to appear in the next issue. But when she read the article, her comments were absent.

“I was told there were so many comments, they couldn’t include mine,” she says, incredulously. “That’s why I don’t support #MeToo.”

4. ‘It does not reflect well on the #MeToo movement, and it shouldn’t.’
Ingrid Mendez, 55, is an urban planner and real estate agent. She doesn’t consider herself a partisan.

“I consider myself a centrist Republican,” she says, indicating that she attended the rally to support President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

When asked why she supports Kavanaugh, the Alexandria, Virginia, native makes it clear that she backs him “because I believe in him and his integrity.”

For that reason, she finds the accusers’ claims to be unbelievable, saying, “How convenient for the letters to come up three days before [Kavanaugh was supposed to be confirmed]. It’s an outrage.”

But tells The Daily Signal that she also has serious doubts about the allegations, owing to how they were made.

“I didn’t believe her because of her lack of clarity,” she says of Ford, referencing her belief that clarity is a hallmark of the memories of sexual assault survivors.

Mendez says the fallout from the allegations will ultimately hurt actual survivors of sexual assault:Unfortunately, it does not reflect well on the #MeToo movement and it shouldn’t. I back the #MeToo movement because they seem to have legitimate claims, and this woman’s claims are laughable.5. #MeToo Movement just a sham for people denying truth.’
Satya Ath is 18. She identifies as a conservative and interns at Regnery Publishing, a conservative publisher.

Ath, who came to Washington from Temecula, California, says she attended the rally because Kavanaugh, whose reputation and character she respects, is not receiving the justice he deserves.

Ath says she sees a double standard in the amount of attention and credibility the media has given Kavanaugh’s accusers.

“I feel it’s wrong that her voice is heard and Kavanaugh isn’t,” she tells The Daily Signal.

“I do not find any of his accusers credible,” Ath says, “especially because … Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony in her polygraph test doesn’t match the letter she gave [Sen.] Dianne Feinstein.”

In light of these discrepancies, Ath accuses the #MeToo movement of using Kavanaugh’s accusers to achieve larger political ends.

Ath says that most of her private Christian school classmates are supportive of Kavanaugh, but “in a lot of public schools and college campuses, many girls do not understand that the #MeToo movement is just a sham for people denying truth.”

6. ‘We should respect the humanity … before we go making judgments.’
Margaret McCampbell, 67, isn’t a Republican. She’s not even from the East Coast.

She’s a self-described “Californian at heart,” even though she’s lived in Baltimore for over 50 years.

“I wouldn’t say I’m conservative, I tend to lean liberal,” the retired community college professor says. “I just want to hear what everyone has to say, because I think we need to listen to what everyone has to say.”

That said, McCampbell also says she is a registered Democrat, even though she’s a moderate. “In Maryland, you have to be,” she says of her party affiliation.

McCampbell works as a volunteer at the Library of Congress, and says she ended up at this particular pro-Kavanaugh gathering because she saw the people on her way to work.

“I like to read the news,” she says in an interview with The Daily Signal, “but I just wanted to hear and look at the people. I want to see who’s here.”

But her interest isn’t in Kavanaugh and the surrounding controversy. She’s more concerned about sexual assault and misconduct in less rarified areas of life than the Supreme Court.

She explains: “Yesterday I was listening on the radio to a panel of high school students and they were talking about this whole culture of high school athletes … I’m more interested in that.”

McCampbell notes that she was particularly inspired the other day by Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who emphasized the humanity of both Kavanaugh and his accuser.

“We should respect the humanity in those people before we go making judgment,” she says.

“I can believe that a woman who was assaulted 30 years ago would just come out about now,” she says, pointing to Bill Cosby’s accusers as her case in point. “People blew them off. But now they found out there’s credibility there.”

7. ‘This whole thing is a desperate act.’
“I would consider myself pretty conservative, I always vote Republican,” Debbie Martin says, with some confidence.

“I’m here because I hate seeing what’s happening to Judge Kavanaugh,” says Martin, who is in her 40s. “I think that if we don’t move forward with a vote, that it is setting a really dangerous precedent for this country that you can ruin someone’s life and career with one accusation. I don’t believe in that. I believe in [the principle of] innocent until proven guilty and I just don’t like this.”

“I would never say that something did not happen because I don’t know,” the Alexandria native says, but adds that she finds Kavanaugh’s accusers, Ford in particular, lacking in credibility because of the lack of corroborating evidence.

“I think it’s bad for true sexual assault victims too,” she notes, “because it can make them unsure about coming out if they’ve really been attacked because of this display on both sides.”

Asked about why she thinks the accusers and the Democrats have come forward with the allegations now, she says:I just think that this whole thing is a desperate act. I think that the Democrats don’t really care whether he’s guilty or innocent, I think they only care about keeping him off the Supreme Court at all costs.She says she thinks the trouble with Kavanaugh signals a larger cultural and political trend.

“I think the #MeToo movement has been kind of hijacked by the Democrats in a way. It started out for a good cause, but now it’s turned into a political tool to use against people who don’t agree with you.

“That’s very sad and discouraging,” she concludes.

8. ‘I do believe women, but I also believe men too.’
Clare Ath is a 22-year-old millennial from the suburbs of Chicago. She now lives in the nation’s capital and works as a campus outreach coordinator for the National Review Institute.

Ath, no relation to Satya Ath, says she attended the rally because Kavanaugh has been an important subject of late to National Review.

“I should come and show my support,” she tells The Daily Signal, “primarily because I do believe women, but I also believe men too.”

“I think that a lot of what’s happening right now is media hyperbole, and people are getting away from the facts and the actual accusations that we do have,” she adds.

Ath says she doesn’t believe the women’s accusations because they are inconsistent and not particular. She says this is in stark contrast to Kavanaugh’s denials, which are so specific that they put him in legal jeopardy:What he’s saying is that he unequivocally denies these accusations, meaning that he’s putting himself at risk for perjury if anything does comes out. That’s something a lot more people should be talking about.Ath says she thinks the #MeToo movement and the Kavanaugh allegations are connected, even if the former is a positive development. Likening #MeToo to her all-girls college in Indiana, she notes the institution was pro-woman, “but in a way that I felt was antithetical to its purpose.”

“The #MeToo movement is good because there are problems that need to be addressed and women need to be treated equally,” she says.

She emphasizes that “we should be pursuing people … who’ve actually done bad things, not taking a lawyer who has had an impeccable career and making him out to be the boogeyman,” adding:I think a lot of people are identifying with their own personal experiences, and putting that on Brett Kavanaugh. They want to view him as the bad guy because they want to punish someone in their lives who has wronged them.She recounts how she marked herself as going to this event on Facebook, only to receive angry reactions from women she went to college with.

“They don’t know Brett Kavanaugh,” she says.

Church Not Forced to Encourage Sin

by Paul Jacob, Contributing Author: In Hawaii, those who would compel others to promote abortion have suffered a well-deserved setback.

A U.S. District Court tossed a law requiring pregnancy centers to post ads for abortion clinics. Among the centers that would have been affected was one run by a church opposed to abortion. Of course, whether we're religious or non-religious, we have the same rights.

The president of National Institute of Family & Life Advocates (NIFLA), Thomas Glessner, hails the decision as a "major victory for free speech and freedom of religion." For its reasoning, the district court relied on a Supreme Court decision, NIFLA v. Becerra.

"In NIFLA v. Becerra, the Supreme Court affirmed that we don't force people to say things they don't believe," says Kevin Theriot, a lawyer with Alliance Defending Freedom who argued that case before the Supreme Court. Thus, "the district court was correct to permanently halt Hawaii's enforcement of Act 200's compelled speech requirement."

You shouldn't be forced in any way to abet any conduct that you regard as morally wrong -- not if the rest of us respect your rights as a moral agent. And it is worth remembering that a lot of people have moral qualms about all sorts of issues, and that many of the people running Hawaii's non-church-sponsored centers doubtless also oppose abortion.

Obvious? To you and me, maybe. But some people disagree. They appear eager to compel others to join their various causes.

The noble cause of leaving other people alone isn't on the list.

DOJ Civil Rights Investigation Expands From Harvard To Include Yale, Brown & Dartmouth Affirmative Action Policy

by Natalia Castro: The Department of Justice took a stand against prejudice last month when the department filed a complaint against Harvard College for discriminated against Asian American students. Now, the DOJ has taken this a step further by expanding their complaint to include three other universities known for discrimination in their admissions process. By expanding the scope of their complaint, the DOJ is reaffirming their commitment to justice and equality for all.

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that the DOJ is investigating Yale, Brown, and Dartmouth colleges for holding Asian-American students to a higher standard than students of other races and use an illegal quota to cap the number of admitted Asian American students.

The Asian American Coalition for Education continued in a Sept. 2018, “Compelling evidence indicates that Yale University and many other selective colleges in the U.S. fail to comply with [antidiscrimination] laws. On the contrary, they have applied de facto racial quotas, racial stereotypes and higher admissions standards to discriminate against Asian American applicants. After extracurricular activities and other factors are adjusted, an Asian-American applicant has to score on average 140, 270 and 450 points higher than a white student, a Hispanic student and a black student on the SAT, respectively, in order to enjoy the same chances of admissions. Such blatant and widespread discrimination against Asian American children needs to be stopped.”

According to the Wall Street Journal report, Yale has “unequivocally” denied any discrimination in admissions proceedings.

The Department of Justice and Asian American groups blame this discrimination on affirmative action policies, which are meant to provide historically marginalized minority groups with greater access to higher education. Unfortunately, Asian Americans are not viewed as marginalized enough to receive equal opportunities.

When the DOJ began investigating Harvard University in August, Attorney General Jeff Sessions noted, “No American should be denied admission to school because of their race. As a recipient of taxpayer dollars, Harvard has a responsibility to conduct its admissions policy without racial discrimination by using meaningful admissions criteria that meet lawful requirements. The Department of Justice has the responsibility to protect the civil rights of the American people. This case is significant because the admissions policies at our colleges and universities are important and must be conducted lawfully.”

In the lawsuit filed against Harvard, Students for Fair Admissions argued if the admissions process was based on an “academic-only” model, Asian Americans would comprise of 43.4 percent of the admitted class. Instead, this group makes up only 18.7 percent of the Harvard class. The Wall Street Journal found that Asian American students only make up 21.7 percent of the incoming class at Yale.

Clearly, discrimination is going on in universities across the country. A process intended to be built on fairness and merit has become one based on oppression Olympics and identity politics. Schools who collect taxpayer money cannot be allowed to discriminate against hardworking Asian American students or anyone else and the DOJ took a strong stance against this racism by combating these elite university policies.

Ford, Ramirez and a Woman Named Broaddrick

by Larry Elder: As with the first allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, his second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, levels a claim of sexual abuse supposedly witnessed by others.

As to why this accuser came forward, Ronan Farrow, co-author of the New Yorker piece that broke the story, said: “She came forward because Senate Democrats came looking for this claim. She did not flag this for those Democrats. This came to the attention of people on the Hill independently, and it’s really cornered her into an awkward position. That’s why she took the time to think about this carefully. She said, point-blank, ‘I don’t want to ruin anyone’s life,’ but she feels this is a serious claim. She considers her own memories credible, and she felt it was important that she tell her story before others did without her consent, because so many people on the Hill were looking at this story.”

Ramirez claims that Kavanaugh sexually confronted her at Yale. According to the New Yorker: “In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. ‘I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,’ she said.”

She named witnesses. About her allegation and the supposed witnesses, The New York Times wrote dismissively: “The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself.”

This brings us to the sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. She named three witnesses: Mark Judge, Patrick J. Smyth and Leland Keyser.

Judge, whom Ford claims was in the room during the alleged assault, put out this statement: “In fact, I have no memory of the alleged incident. Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford’s letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner that Dr. Ford describes.”

Smyth, through his attorney, issued the following statement: “I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as ‘PJ’ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post. I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.”

Keyser’s attorney issued the following statement: “Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”

So, in summary, Ford and Ramirez claim they were sexually assaulted or abused by Kavanaugh, one in prep school, the other in college. As to the first allegation, Ford admits uncertainty about the year, the house where the attack supposedly took place and how she got to and from the party. She admits she told no one for decades and only recently talked about the attack while undergoing couples therapy a few years ago. The named witness to the attacks, as mentioned, has no recollection of this. As to the second allegation, Ramirez named witnesses, none of whom — so far — has corroborated her story. In court, these allegations would not survive a motion to dismiss, given the accuser’s burden of proof and the accused’s presumption of innocence. This, of course, is not a court of law.

But when Hillary Clinton calls for an FBI investigation into the Ford allegation, the word “shameless” is inadequate. Clinton, of course, failed to call for an FBI investigation into Juanita Broaddrick’s claim that she was raped by Bill Clinton. Broaddrick further claimed that, two weeks after the alleged rape, Hillary Clinton verbally threatened Broaddrick to ensure that whatever happened would remain private. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., says “there is no presumption of innocence” for Kavanaugh. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said, “Kavanaugh has a responsibility to come forward with evidence to rebut” the allegations. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said Kavanaugh “bears the burden of disproving these allegations.” Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said, “Not only do these women need to be heard, they need to be believed.”

Broaddrick was unavailable for comment.
