Brett Kavanaugh is a conservative judge with an exemplary track record. He really was the “best person for the job” as his qualifications were exemplary. The Hill went over those qualifications, and you can follow this link to look at them if you haven’t seen them. But as a conservative judge, Brett Kavanaugh had two views that the far left could not accept. He is pro-life, and pro second amendment.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that abortion is in jeopardy now that he has been confirmed. Even CNN will agree that Kavanaugh has stated before that Roe V. Wade set an “important precedent” and that the right to abortion was settled. In fact, several far-right groups like March For Life and the American Family Association opposed Kavanaugh’s nomination because they said he would not have the “backbone” to overturn Roe V Wade.
He may support stricter regulation on abortion, but so do most Americans. NPR recently wrote “Gallup finds that 60 percent of Americans believe abortion generally should be legal during the first three months of pregnancy, known as the first trimester. That support drops by more than half, to 28 percent, once a pregnancy reaches the second trimester; it falls to 13 percent in the third trimester,”. Today’s laws allow abortion almost to the time of natural birth.
Of course the far left would have you believe that Brett Kavanaugh will ban abortions and have women in back alleys with wire hangers…
This may be the main reason the far left is against Kavanaugh. The left has consistently tried to erode the protections guaranteed under the second amendment with local ordinances and shadowbans. These legislative tricks often end up in front of the supreme court, and it is here that Kavanaugh will do the most harm to the tyrannical plan of the far left. Things like “assault weapon bans”, “High Capacity Magazine Bans”, and other locally passed ordinances meant to undermine the second amendment will eventually end up in the supreme court, and Kavanaugh has now tipped the scales in favor of the second amendment.
In addition, The American Civil Liberties Union has stated that Kavanaugh’s record “demonstrates hostility to international law”. Again, this bodes well for Americans and the second amendment, as many on the far left have hoped to see groups like the UN pass weapons bans that the far left could then use as justification to enforce those bans within the United States.
Attempts Against Kavanaugh
So now we know what the far lefts motive was for trying anything to keep Brett Kavanaugh from becoming a Supreme Court Justice. But let’s look at their tactics because this is what should cause concern for every American no matter what political party you identify with.
The confirmation hearings started out normal enough with the Democrats pushing the abortion and second amendment points. Then, when they realized that those were not doing them any good, they reached for their recent ridicules slur of Russian Collusion. That went nowhere either.
With nothing working to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, the far left had to do something drastic. Out came the sexual assault allegations. Dianne Feinstein is said to have had a letter from Christine Blasey-Ford for several months that allege Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party somewhere around 1982. Ford has stated that she can’t remember what year the assault took place, how old she was, what grade she was in, where it took place, etc… The amount of people at the party has changed several times and is different in her letter to Feinstein, her polygraph statement, and her statement before Congress.
Let’s take a quick minute to talk about the polygraph. The far left likes to bring up that she passed the polygraph. What they fail to bring up is that the polygraph only had 2 questions, and neither mentioned Kavanaugh. There have also been claims that Ford has coached others on how to pass a polygraph.
Ford does name 4 people other than herself that were at the party. Among those people are Kavanaugh, his friend Mark Judge (who she accused of helping with the assault), someone named PJ Smyth and Ford’s own “lifelong friend” Leland Ingham Keyser.
Obviously, Kavanaugh and Judge would deny ever being at a party where they assaulted Ford. Patrick Smyth also denied any recollection of the party in question. And Ford’s lifelong friend? Her lawyer told the Senate “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 there is absolutely zero corroborating evidence for Ford’s story. Maybe this is why Feinstein held onto the letter for months before releasing it. She knew there was no evidence.
So you may be wondering what Christine Blasey-Ford’s motive is for lying under oath? Is she just some stooge of the DNC ready to commit a federal crime to push the agenda of the far left? Does she have a personal vendetta? Is she motivated by money? Maybe all 3.
You may have heard that Brett Kavanaugh’s mother was the judge presiding over Ford’s parents home foreclosure. You may have heard the left try to deny the truth of that story (going so far as to say that it “never happened”). But the court records are public information, and the image on the right is downloaded from the court website. You can go to the site here, and at the bottom of the page search for case number 156006V.
It is true that Kavanaugh’s mother did not rule against Ford’s parents, the issue was dismissed after the parties settled out of court, but that does not mean that Ford did not hold a grudge.
The Morning After Pills
There is a drug called Mifepristone. This drug, also known as RU-486, is a medication typically used to bring about an abortion by inducing a miscarriage. This combination is more than 95% effective during the first trimester of pregnancy. This drug is sometimes called the abortion pill and sometimes called the morning after pill.
In 1998, Corcept Therapeutics commissioned several studies to explore whether mifepristone could help treat other conditions. Christine Blasey Ford participated in numerous published studies, which researched these other uses for mifepristone. You can see here that the “C Blasey is actually Christine Blasey from the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, USA, and that she is using a Corcept email address. Corcepts only product is Mifepristone.
What does all of this have to do with Brett Kavanaugh? To put it simply, a pro-life organization called Priests For Life sued the department of Health and Human Services over a stipulation in the Affordable Care Act requiring employers to pay for insurance that covers birth control (including abortion pills like Mifepristone). The case made it to the DC Circuit Court of Appeals (where Kavanaugh was a judge) and although the case was ruled in favor of the Government, Judge Brett Kavanaugh disagreed with the decision and wrote the dissent.
As this case could likely be appealed, and end up before the Supreme Court, it is obviously in the best interest of a paid staff member of Corcept (like Christine Blasey-Ford) to be opposed to Brett Kavanaugh sitting on the Supreme Court when that happens.
I do not believe that Christine Blasey-Ford’s accusations are true. It is obvious that there is no evidence to back up her case. But let us say for a minute that her accusations are true. Let’s say for a minute that she had reported the alleged assault 36 years ago when it is supposed to have happened. What would have been the outcome? If she had some corroborating evidence, A teenage Brett Kavanaugh might have been arrested. He would have gone to juvenile detention, and gone before a juvenile court. If there had been enough evidence to convict him, he would have been labeled a juvenile delinquent. Flash forward to today and Brett Kavanaugh would be celebrated for being a person who had a troubled youth and turned his life around.
My point here is it is nonsense to attack a 53-year-old person based on actions that they may or may not have committed when they were a teenager. I am not the person I was when I was in High School, and I would guess the majority of you out there over the age of 25 will say the same thing. So what is the point of accusations about Brett Kavanaugh’s behavior in High School? If bad behavior in High School can be used to disqualify people from jobs, most of us would never work.
Who Is The Victim?
The far left has rallied behind the cry “You have to believe the victim”. But who is the victim here? Is Christine Blasey-Ford the victim of a sexual assault 36 years ago by Brett Kavanaugh? Or is Brett Kavanaugh the victim of a smear campaign and false allegation by Christine Blasey-Ford?
Many people say Christine Blasey-Ford’s testimony was compelling, and we need to believe what she said. Her eyewitness testimony is proof enough.
There is a group called the Innocence Project. They use DNA evidence to look at court cases that were settled before DNA was used as evidence, but where evidence exists that DNA can be taken from now, and used as new evidence. Over the past 25 years, they have exonerated 363 people who were wrongly convicted. (that is over 1 person per month) These innocent people served an average of 14 years in prison for crimes they did not commit. 80% of them were convicted solely on eyewitness testimony. The majority of these cases were for sexual assault.
Numerous studies have proved that eye-witness testimony is not reliable and becomes less reliable with the passage of time. As one paper points out: “Several studies have been conducted on human memory and on subjects’ propensity to remember erroneously events and details that did not occur”. So maybe Christine Blasey-Ford was assaulted. And maybe she believes what she is saying. That does not mean it is the truth.
Ford has no evidence to support her claim, but she does have a motive to make a false accusation. Therefore, the true question is “do you believe the evidence, or baseless accusations? The legal system in this country is set up to protect the innocent from baseless accusations. The burden of proof lies with the accuser, and the accused is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. When we start to believe accusations without evidence, we end up having situations like the Salem Witch Trials in 1692.
This is why the far left should be ashamed of what they did to Brett Kavanaugh. This travesty of justice was not only an attack against a conservative Supreme Court Nominee, but it was an attack against the basic principles of our legal system. It was an attack on the very legal protections put in place by our forefathers to protect us from legal abuses. What they have tried to do is set a precedent that a persons life can be destroyed by the mere accusation of wrongdoing. This is an attack on the Due Process of Law, and it is something that should worry every person, no matter the party affiliation.
