No surprises here.

September 19, 2018

Somehow you just knew in your gut that this was going to happen.

“This” being a quick game of stall ball by Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser and her legal beagle. The real question is, whether the lady is a willing participant in another political lynching, or whether she is being exploited for political purposes by Dianne Feinstein, Eric Swalwell and other never-Trumpers.

Both Mrs. Blasey-Ford and her attorney know that the FBI isn’t going to investigate a 35-year-old assault claim.  The proper way to initiate an investigation would be to begin with filing charges with the appropriate local authorities, assuming they would take the case based on essentially no evidence whatsoever.

Incidentally for those who don’t have occasion to do background checks, there would be nothing for the FBI to find, because in a normal background check you are only looking at actual documented actions taken against someone, like collection notices, credit reports, complaints, restraining orders, arrests, convictions or documented separations for cause from employment. They aren’t independent criminal  investigations like you see on television. Only if an anomaly appears would anyone dig deeper, and even then, there has to be just cause to move forward.

In a way, it’s almost a shame that the gravity of the Kavanaugh nomination precludes him doing what anyone else would do…file suit against her for defamation of character. That would force her into a courtroom where she would have to display whatever evidence she has.

Then there is the general climate that surrounds Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.

It’s always tricky to doubt the veracity of anyone’s claim of assault, particularly sexual assault, in the MeToo era. In this case, it’s also bad politics.

Giving Mrs. Ford the full benefit of the doubt for what she says happened to her 35 or 36 years ago, one still has to give some credence to the fact that she can’t remember any other details, yet she is convinced that Judge Kavanaugh was her attacker.

There are a couple of psychological scenarios that would explain how she could be completely convinced that she is telling the truth and still be wrong.

We’ll  leave sorting that out to a qualified mental health provider.

Still, given the other political circumstances surrounding the Kavanaugh nomination, it’s hard not to see this as just another case of the “resistance” trying to undermine the Trump presidency.

At this point, nothing the unhinged opposition says or does surprises anyone, even up to and including Senator Hirono of Hawaii painting all men with the broad brush of misandry, all the while declaring that the plaintiff (Mrs. Ford) does not have to corroborate her charges. Perhaps Senator Hirono hasn’t read the Fifth Amendment lately, if at all.

When all is said and done, it would be wise to remember that the Kavanaugh family, including his children, will  have to deal with this for the rest of their lives, even if he is confirmed. Just look at how quickly the conversation got around to the  Clarence Thomas- Anita Hill story of 27 years ago.

Overshadowing all of this is the stench hanging over the Democrats, and the Senate as a whole, leaving the rest of us to ask:

How much more corruption is there for the Dems to try to hide?
