I have not been a witness personally to gang rape except once in 3rd grade but I have heard the references and confessions to gang rape.
In college the boys called the girls raped as being "booted around".
I remember a confession involving such rape tools as electric cattle prods.

Kavanaugh is a good ol boy. What is being claimed is not uncommon in the real world.

Theme From 'the Dukes of Hazzard' (Good Ol' Boys)
Waylon Jennings
Just the good ol' boys
Never meanin' no harm
Beats all you never saw
Been in trouble with the law
Since the day they was born
Staightenin' the curves
Flattenin' the hills
Someday the mountain might get 'em
But the law never will
Makin' their way
The only way they know how
That's just a little bit more
Than the law will allow
Makin' their way
The only way they know how yeah
That's just a little bit more
Than the law will allow
I'm a good ol' boy
You know my momma loves me
But she don't understand
They keep a showin' my victims
And not my wisdom on TV

You were 'witness to gang rape' in third grade?! ... yikes ......

Outside of court news, I've never in my longish life heard anyone confess to having any part in anything like gang rape. As an adolescent, I once heard a rumour of some older boys and a girl having a, ahem, 'gangbang', but, whatever the circumstances, if it occurred at all, it was represented as a consensual, naughty good time.

A woman once told me of having, um, 'entertained' two or three men in succession.

That's it. I suppose I've lived a sheltered life.

As a hypnotist 2 cases out of 12,000 felt they needed to unburden them selves. In college the perps lived across the hall and I knew the girl they were talking about. As for third grade I saw 2 other 3rd grade boys wrestle a girl who suffered from stammering to the floor in a closet and pull down her panties to see her vagina. There was no intercourse of course but it is still a kind of rape don't you think.
When the girl tried to tell the teacher her stammering prevented her from explaining what had happened and the teacher dismissed the incident. My secretary was raped and mugged by inmates who she visited after one of the guys was released. I had a girlfriend who said she was abused by her own grandfather. I think I have a sheltered life.

The Fresh Air program recently had an interesting segment on how the Evangelical Purity Movement Sees Women's Bodies As A 'Threat.' An excerpt:
    The first exposure I had to the purity message was actually about gender. Gender and sexuality are deeply intertwined in the purity movement. You aren't just supposed to be sexually pure, but you are supposed to be pure in your gender expression. So women and girls are expected to be hyper-feminine, supportive followers of men and boys who are expected to be hyper-masculine leaders, supportive and loving leaders, but leaders nonetheless. And if either the man or the woman or the girl or the boy strays from their gender expectation, for example, if the woman leads too much or the man becomes her follower, the idea is that the whole picture topples. ...
    In this culture, men and boys are talked about as being sexually weak and women and girls are supposed to be the holders of all sexual purity. So ultimately women and girls are responsible for the sexual thoughts and feelings and choices that men make, and it's women and girls' responsibility to dress right, to act right, to talk right, to do everything just right to ensure non-sexuality for all people — and if they don't, they potentially risk being categorized as impure or as a harlot.


Kavanaugh is Catholic, but my Catholic parish has many Trump conservatives who are hard to tell from Evangelical Christians. They have arranged marriages and supervised courtship and other sex and courtship practices that are totally alien to the way I was brought up.

I imagine that in this line of thinking, Christine Blasey Ford was responsible for leading young Brett Kavanaugh astray, so she's the guilty party.

Good grief Joe, that's reminiscent of Margaret Atwood's 'The Handmaid's Tale'! How sinister!

Talk about victim blaming... sexism ...male chauvinism...female oppression...cult mentality and....well!!!!

I find that quite frightening actually.

The crime of rape in UK involves penetration, either by a part of the rapist's anatomy or an object. Some of what Donuel describes would be classed as a serious sexual assault. But appalling in any case for the victim.

Your points are close to the heart of the matter. The Kavanaugh job interview is a search for a good role model and Supreme Court Justice.
With 90% of his documents as a Bush employee missing, and that he doesn't seem to be a good role model should be of great concern.

To me she came off as an aw shucks witness with a touch too much of a rehearsed crack in her voice with a compelling eight year story of discovery of how an incident has affected her life. She was her own ideal expert witness and answered every question while pleading for an investigation.

He came off as an over the top interrupting, outraged, entitled, angry accusatory white man who describes himself as an impossibly squeakey clean person. He evaded 90% of the questions by Democrats and mentioned the word 'beers' 32 times. When he cried I was too uncomfortable to watch.

He seems to be the epitome of a spoiled brat liar. imho

Good old boys like Bill Clinton:



“You cannot go to court or make allegations just on your memory,” Broaddrick said. “You have to have facts, you have to have dates, you have to have what, where, who, how, when, why—which I had at the time, and … Miss Ford doesn’t.”

Broaddrick accused Clinton of raping her in Arkansas in 1978 when she was a nursing home administrator and he was campaigning for governor. She recounted her account in a 1999 “Dateline NBC” interview.

Broaddrick also said there’s a “double standard” for the way Democrats treat accusations of sexual assault, versus Republicans. She said many of the same Democrats who have called for an FBI investigation into Ford’s allegations weren’t even willing to hear her story in the ’90s.


It’s so important that the American people understand what [Democratic Sens.] Dianne Feinstein [of California], Chuck Schumer [of New York], and Sen. [Dick] Durbin did to me in 1999. I had all the evidence in the world. I had witnesses, I had injuries, I had dates, and everything verified. This was in the ‘NBC Dateline’ interview, and then when I was deposed by the independent counsel, Ken Starr’s group, they deposed me, and this became part of the record of the impeachment, not one Democrat senator would read this. Not one. They completely refused.

Although Broaddrick suggested the pendulum has now swung too far in the opposite direction—from not giving women the time of day to be heard, to now believing women despite a lack of evidence—Broaddrick says on the whole, things have improved for victims of sexual abuse. But that wouldn’t have happened, she added, without Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

“Things are better now, but it’s only because Hillary Clinton lost,” she said. “Her husband was my rapist. And all of these articles that came out in 2017, such as Michelle Goldberg with the New York Times—big headline ‘I believe Juanita,’—and all of these others that fell in line, those articles, I really feel, would never have come forward had Hillary been elected president.”

Topic is good old boys- and the crimes Kavanaugh is accused of are far less than the ones you ACCEPTED AS BEING OK, since he did what YOU supported.


Seems to me that the points brought out in my post are not answered .

“You cannot go to court or make allegations just on your memory,” Broaddrick said. “You have to have facts, you have to have dates, you have to have what, where, who, how, when, why—which I had at the time, and … Miss Ford doesn’t.”



And how do you think Kavanaugh would act IF he was innocent- JUST LIKE HE IS ACTING.


"It’s so important that the American people understand what [Democratic Sens.] Dianne Feinstein [of California], Chuck Schumer [of New York], and Sen. [Dick] Durbin did to me in 1999.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/money-raised-for-kavanaugh-accuser-christine-blasey-ford-soars-after-thursday-testimony/a

Money poured into a fundraiser for Judge Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford Thursday as she testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

A “Help Christine Blasey Ford” GoFundMe page has raised over $357,790. That number was $159,610 as of Monday afternoon.

A “Cover Dr. Blasey’s Security Costs” GoFundMe has also raised $209,987 for Ford, putting the collective sum at over $567,000 for Ford and her family.

The fundraisers’ goals started at $150,000 and $175,000 respectively.


Over 14,016 people have donated to the two funds.

The money will support her and her family, and cover the security costs they have incurred following publication of Ford’s allegations against the Supreme Court nominee.

Joe:

1. I do not think telling us that NOW, while keeping silent AT THE TIME, in order to support Democratic control of the White House, says anything good about YOU.

2. ANY misconduct by Kavanaugh is WRONG- but I look at the timing, the fact that Feinstein sat on this until she was desperate, and the lack of ANY supporting evidence or witnesses to indicate that PERHAPS even a Republican is innocent until proven guilty. And what was this about Ford demanding that Kavanaugh NOT be present? Isn't that contrary to the 6th amendment?

Even SRS would have to agree that a drunken groping is not as bad as forces rape- but the one she supported was a Democrat, so that makes it alright.

Bill Clinton is essentially more amusing than George Bush (Jr or Senior). I think this is worth mentioning!

In honor of the ongoing subject of "Who is the political antichrist?" I wish to cut and paste again my poem:

"Partisan Blues"

I got those partisan blues
Those old partisan blues
In the bottom of my shoes
In the bottom of my shoes

My guy's right and your guy's wrong
Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!
Your guy's always wrong and he always will be!

My guy's a hero, your guy's a jerk
My guy is gonna put America back to work
Your guy's a liar, a pervert, a cheat
My guy's the friend of the man in the street

I got those partisan blues
Those old partisan blues
In the bottom of my shoes
In the bottom of my shoes

My party's the only one that I will ever vote for
I was born a Redemopublicrat and I'll die a Redemopublicrat
I can't stand those Democrapublicants, they make me sick
I hope they all Die! Die! Die!
And then my party can rule forever and ever
And theirs will be the Power and the Glory

My guy's a human, your guy's an ape
Your guy is secretly in favour of rape
Your guy took payoffs and he's unpatriotic
My guy's true blue, your guy's idiotic

I got those partisan blues, those partisan blues

Every four years I go completely nuts...

It's should be obvious to any reasonable individual that Dr. Ford's, (and other's) allegations warrant an FBI investigation. The only relevant question now is whether or not Kavanaugh is fit to serve a LIFETIME appointment to the Supreme Court, or any U.S. Court for that matter. If he is innocent you'd think he'd want to go forward with a clean slate.

This the same FBI that said there was no reason to hold Hillary to the same laws as the rest of us, had a group planning how to remove Trump if he was elected, and that gave Hillary's people blanket amnesty while bringing unrelated charges against Trump's to force them to cooperate?


Right.

If there is an investigation, it should be of ALL those who have had claims of felonies against them made, like Bill and Hillary ( self admitted that she acted in a manner, that if I had done with my much lower clearances, would have gotten me 20 years in jail)

It is all politics- note that Feinstein, Schumer, and Durban care about as much about women's rights as those here claim Trump does:

"It’s so important that the American people understand what [Democratic Sens.] Dianne Feinstein [of California], Chuck Schumer [of New York], and Sen. [Dick] Durbin did to me in 1999.

Joe, Allegation by Broadrick: That Clinton had committed rape while Ark. At. Gen.
Action against Clinton: deposed by the independent counsel, Ken Starr’s group
what did Feinstein, Schumer, and Durban say and do: Support Clinton and not even read the deposition. In other words, these so-called defenders of women's rights ignored a case of rape for political reasons.


"Despite Broaddrick's denial in her affidavit, Jones' lawyers included Yoakum's letter and Broaddrick's name in a 1998 filing.[20] The letter suggested that the Clintons had bought Broaddrick's silence, describing a phone call where Broaddrick's husband asked Yoakum to say the incident never happened and said that he intended to ask Clinton "for a couple of big favors."[22] This, along with the discrepancy between the letter and Broaddrick's affidavit, attracted the attention of independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who was investigating Clinton for obstruction of justice After being approached by the FBI, Broaddrick consulted her son, a lawyer, who told her she could not lie to federal investigators.[12] After Starr granted her immunity,[23] thus assuring that she would not be prosecuted for perjury regarding her affidavit in the Jones case, Broaddrick recanted the affidavit. However, she insisted that Clinton had not pressured or bribed her in any way, and so Starr concluded that the story was not relevant to his investigation and his report only mentioned the recanting in a footnote.[1]

1999[edit]

Rumors continued to circulate in tabloids and on talk radio, now with Broaddrick's name attached.[20] Broaddrick was upset by a tabloid report that she had been paid to keep quiet, and decided to agree to an interview with NBC's Lisa Myers. Myers interviewed her on January 20, 1999, the day after Clinton was impeached. The interview only aired on February 24, 1999, 35 days later and after Clinton had been acquitted on February 12. NBC was accused of intentionally sitting on the story and invoking unusually demanding standards of corroboration until the impeachment process ended. Broaddrick and another source said NBC gathered the key corroborating evidence within 10 days of the interview, NBC assistant producer Chris Giglio said it may have taken him 14 days—in either case, while the impeachment process was ongoing.[20] Though the story was unaired, at least one Republican senator reportedly invoked it to convince undecided Republicans to vote for impeachment.[12]

While NBC waited to air the interview, Broaddrick was approached by Dorothy Rabinowitz, who wrote for the Wall Street Journal editorial page. Upset with NBC's delay, Broaddrick agreed to speak with Rabinowitz, and the story debuted on the Wall Street Journal's editorial page on February 19.[24] NBC aired Myers' interview soon after.

Once an official is nominated and confirmed, or elected, it's intentionally difficult hard to remove that person from office - that's to ensure stability of government. That's why it's important for candidates with problems to be vetted out before they take office.

BTW, you mentioned facts. Since we have Ford's statement as to what happened, maybe we should look at Broadrick's, and see just what Feinstein, Schumer, and Durban didn't think needed to be investigated:

Broaddrick says the two spoke briefly in her room, with Clinton describing plans to renovate a prison visible from her window if he became governor. Then, according to Broaddrick, Clinton suddenly kissed her. Broaddrick says she pushed Clinton away and told him she was married and not interested, but he persisted. As recounted in the NBC interview:


Then he tries to kiss me again. And the second time he tries to kiss me he starts biting my lip … He starts to, um, bite on my top lip and I tried to pull away from him. And then he forces me down on the bed. And I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him 'No,' that I didn't want this to happen but he wouldn't listen to me. … It was a real panicky, panicky situation. I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to 'Please stop.' And that's when he pressed down on my right shoulder and he would bite my lip. … When everything was over with, he got up and straightened himself, and I was crying at the moment and he walks to the door, and calmly puts on his sunglasses. And before he goes out the door he says 'You better get some ice on that.' And he turned and went out the door.

When asked if there was any way Clinton could have thought it was consensual, Broaddrick said "No, not with what I told him and with how I tried to push him away. It was not consensual."

Broaddrick shared the hotel room with her friend and employee Norma Rogers. Rogers attended a conference seminar that morning, and says she returned to their room to find Broaddrick on the bed "in a state of shock," her pantyhose torn in the crotch and her lip swollen as though she had been hit. Rogers says Broaddrick told her Clinton had "forced himself on her." Rogers helped Broaddrick ice her lip, and then the women left Little Rock. Rogers said that Broaddrick was very upset on the way home and blamed herself for letting Clinton in the room. Broaddrick says she did not tell her husband, Gary Hickey, about the incident, and told him she accidentally injured her lip. He told NBC he did not remember the injury or her explanation. David Broaddrick, however, has said he noticed her injured lip, and she told him that Clinton had raped her when he asked about it. Three other friends confirmed that Broaddrick had told them about the incident at the time: Susan Lewis, Louis Ma, and Jean Darden, Norma Rogers' sister. Broaddrick did not recall the date of the alleged incident, but said it was spring of 1978 and that she had stayed in the Camelot Hotel. Records show Broaddrick attended a nursing home meeting at the Camelot Hotel in Little Rock on April 25, 1978. The Clinton White House would not respond to requests for Clinton's official schedule for the date, but news reports suggest that he was in Little Rock that day, with no official commitments in the morning.

Three weeks after the alleged assault, Broaddrick participated in a small Clinton fundraiser at the home of a local dentist. Broaddrick said she was "in denial" and felt guilty, thinking that she had given Clinton the wrong idea by letting him into her room.[3] When she arrived at the event, she says, her friend who had picked the Clintons up from the airport told her that Hillary Clinton had asked if she would be at the event. Broaddrick says Bill Clinton did not speak to her at the event, but Hillary Clinton approached her, took her hand, and said "I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate what you do for him." When Broaddrick moved her hand away, she says, Hillary Clinton held on to her and said, "Do you understand? Everything that you do." Broaddrick says she felt nauseated and left the gathering. Broaddrick says she interpreted the incident as Hillary Clinton thanking her for keeping quiet.

So, Donuel,

You require him to prove his innocence, not for Ford to prove him guilty.


So if I were to accuse you of something vile, you would agree you must prove me wrong, and I do not need to prove you guilty?

Or do you set yourself above the law that you apply to Kavanaugh?


"Literally anyone can make an accusation -- especially an accusation about something that happened 36 years ago. And it's especially hard for someone accused of something from so long ago to mount a defense or provide an alibi.

Also, if she has a false memory of something that happened so long ago, or even a partially false memory, she would not be the first.

These are all reasons why corroboration is especially important in this case. And here's another: This isn't just about the "privilege," as Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., put it, of sitting on the court. This is now about Kavanaugh's entire life and good name, as well as that of his family. If he isn't confirmed, it's over for him. By springing these accusations on him at the last minute, Democrats have backed him into a corner. He will be disgraced and ruined if he isn't confirmed.

Ford's story, taken in isolation, sounds like a plausible account of something that might have happened. What it needs to become accepted fact is corroboration. And no one, including the people Ford has named as witnesses, remembers a party or gathering like the one she describes. She doesn't remember the month or day of the incident. She doesn't remember how she got back to her home -- not a small issue in pre-Uber suburban Montgomery County for someone who lacks a driver's license. The original therapists' notes about the event described an attack by four men and not two.

In similar fashion, no one can confirm Deborah Ramirez's account of Kavanaugh exposing himself to her at Yale, even though several people would have had to see that happen by her own account.

And that's also worth pointing out specifically: It's not just the "in private" part of these allegations that no one corroborates -- it's also the "in public" part.

American Bar Association: Delay Kavanaugh until FBI investigates assault allegations

The American Bar Association is calling on the Senate Judiciary Committee to halt the consideration of President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh until an FBI investigation is completed into the sexual assault allegations that have roiled his nomination.

In a strongly worded letter obtained by CNN Thursday, the organization said it is making the extraordinary request "because of the ABA's respect for the rule of law and due process under law," siding with concerns voiced by Senate Democrats since Christine Blasey Ford's decades-old allegations became public. . . .

Bruce, I looked up this Broaddrick thing. The alleged Bill Clinton rape happened in 1978. If she can press charges and get somebody to prosecute Clinton, more power to her. But he's not running for president or nominated for the Supreme Court, so the case is more-or-less irrelevant unless it can be prosecuted.

In case you didn't notice, Brett Kavanaugh is a nominee for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, so the sexual misconduct charges against him are indeed relevant - although it's very unlikely that Kavanaugh will be prosecuted for them.

Yes, both Clinton and Kavanaugh appear to have committed shameful sexual crimes, but you seem to be confusing criminal prosecution with confirmation to the Supreme Court. In the Kavanaugh case, it's not a matter of "beyond a reasonable doubt." If a majority of senators vote against him, he doesn't get the job. There's no due process, and there shouldn't be.

No disrespect to Donuel but the title he's chosen has a "give him a fair trial and then hang him" mentality to it. Let's get these allegations investigated.

The proof of the pudding ...

This morning the vote is being considered, by evening results.

My thoughts on this come from reading a lot of informed comment on Twitter. The ones that gave me pause are professional actresses and experts on testimony. In effect I came to the conclusion that Dr. Ford is coached, and that if she was really assaulted it had to have been by some other individual not the accused.

Too, I almost cheered for Senator Lindsey Graham's nailing the Democrats to the wall for what has been done to Judge Kavanaugh. After all is said and done, he is still just a father and husband with a wife and two children.

It has been noted in Committee that none of this need ever have been in the public venue, and, by rights, belonged in a bi-partisan procedure. But they report that the Democrats insisted on the public humiliation of Judge Kavanaugh as some sort of 'get even' with the Republicans for what happened to Bill Clinton all those years ago.

So I do not now believe that Judge Kavanaugh is a pervert, a serial rapist, a sexual offender. Because, all Dr. Fords own witnesses deny what she claimed about the Judge, and his biography of relations with females is sqeeky clean.

Judge Kavanaugh never assaulted Dr Ford, in fact he appears not to even know this woman, who IMHO is deranged.

1.
DJT is not Judge Kavanaugh. The idea that there is any similarity between is a great piece of comedy. Sorry I don't think DJTs acts have any bearing on the innocence of the Judge.
2.
As pointed out in separate Committee meetings, by Joe Biden in the Anita Hill fiasco, and by the current chair in this one, FBI investigation is useless because it can only offer statements of the actors to the court of adjudication, and, as is repeated in both hearings, the relevant participants are there in person under oath to provide them. Why bother with wasting FBI resources? Except that somebody wants to delay the vote?
3.
Mark Judge. He, a recovering alcoholic, so the media reports, denies Dr Ford's claim. As well, he took his right to not participate any further in the matter, protected by our US laws. Be aware that any Lawyer would make hay with him in a Subpoena / witness stand, IOW he would not be much use to either side.

"Kavanaugh had been stilted and overly programmed prior to Thursday, including in his initial round of Senate hearings and in an interview with Fox News earlier in the week. But, after days of enduring a process of unprecedented nastiness, Kavanaugh didn’t hold anything back.

In his opening statement, he was personal about the devastating effects of the charges levied against him, both on his reputation and on his family. He was excoriating about how Ford’s allegation was handled by Senate Democrats, who sat on it until the last moment. He scorned the ridiculous charges that have been layered on since, including that he was party to gang rapes. He invoked all he had invested in public service and in his friendships over the years. He expressed regret, as he should, over juvenile references in his high-school yearbook. He acknowledged enjoying beer, as a teenager and still as an adult. And he was angry, very angry, at the Democrats who have attacked his integrity and welcomed any bottom-feeding allegation, including a grotesque smear dredged up publicity-hungry lawyer Michael Avenatti.

His face was distorted in fury, he had trouble composing himself, and at times he wept. This was an incredibly raw performance by the standards of Washington and especially by the standards of Senate confirmation hearings.

Immediately, the same opponents of Kavanaugh who have been portraying him as a monster took great umbrage that he’d be angry at being portrayed as a monster. Look, they said, he lacks a judicial temperament!

But how is a person who maintains his innocence supposed to react when a political party will credit any allegation against him, when swathes of the media presume his guilt, when every aspect of his teenage years — including notations in his yearbook — are used against him, when all the testimonials in his favor and his decades of spotless public service mean nothing?

Kavanaugh’s anger over these kinds of attacks says nothing about his jurisprudence. His extensive opinions as a D.C. Circuit Court judge are all carefully reasoned and written. His opinions on the Supreme Court, should he make it there, will no doubt be the same. Hearing a case or writing an opinion isn’t the same as defending your integrity in a high-stakes political showdown.

The most difficult challenge Kavanaugh had was pushing back on Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that he sexually assaulted her in high school, without seeming harsh or dismissive. He didn’t contest that she was assaulted and expressed sympathy for her — in fact, in an emotional moment, he related how his daughter suggested praying for her. But he persuasively made the case that there isn’t evidence of her contention that he was the perpetrator. The four people Ford has named as being present at the party in question say they don’t recall it, and Kavanaugh’s calendar that served as something of a journal suggests he was often out of town or otherwise accounted for on summer weekends in 1982, the year of the alleged incident.

Brett Kavanaugh, like all Supreme Court nominees, has carefully calculated his way through his public career. But if he gets on the Court, it will be because he abandoned the usual constraints and showed the nation a powerfully human reaction to the attacks on him. His opening statement may well end up changing the course of the Supreme Court, and of our politics."

Now, if the FBI finds all these allegations unfounded Kavanaugh can move forward with a clean slate and the American people can at least be assured that the Senate hasn't placed a sexual predator on the SCOTUS, that is, assuming the Republicans don't disregard proof of criminal behavior and vote him in anyway.

I just came upon this passage in Bob Woodward's latest book, "Fear":

"Trump gave some private advice to a friend who had acknowledged some bad behavior toward women. Real power is fear. It’s all about strength. Never show weakness. You’ve always got to be strong. Don’t be bullied. There is no choice.
“You’ve got to deny, deny, deny and push back on these women,” he said. “If you admit to anything and any culpability, then you’re dead. That was a big mistake you made. You didn’t come out guns blazing and just challenge them. You showed weakness. You’ve got to be strong. You’ve got to be aggressive. You’ve got to push back hard. You’ve got to deny anything that’s said about you. Never admit.”


I watched the hearings yesterday with fascination. I found Dr. Ford to be credible. Nevertheless, the Republicans have points of reasonable doubt that can be used both rationally and politically. And they did both.

Particularly effective was Lindsay Graham's passionate and precisely timed rant which transformed a superficially secular investigation into events and probabilities into a purely partisan face-off.

And I found Judge Kavanaugh to be more Nixonian, making emotional appeals from someone who was not known for displaying such, reminiscent of the 'Checkers' speech.

Where my continuity of belief just broke was the reference in high school yearbook of "Renate Alumnus". I find it credible that this was a crude in-joke of a sexual nature. I don't believe it was a reference to just good friends.

I sure hope the FBI gets a crack at this. They should check out the Judge's words of self-defence. Every one of them.

Thanks, Sen. Flake. Let's hope there IS an FBI investigation. No matter what it finds, Kavanaugh has demonstrated that he is utterly unfit for the Supreme Court - but if we find that he has no history of sexual violence, that's so much.

One part of the testimony that I already wrote I found believable and I will go farther and say 'honest' was when Dr. Ford said she was weighing the balance of testifying versus the personal cost to her based on how effective it would be. If the selection was a 'done deal' why bother? If she was going up against a 'stone' wall of unbelief or obstruction, why bother? It is reasonable that she is not alone with these considerations. The fears that stifle free expression in our supposed 'free' society are different than those in other countries that we think we are 'superior' to, but the result is no less injurious.

So I think it does some credit to many of the Republicans that they have proven themselves open to hearing out these issues so publicly. Our society is not finished (yet).

Chairman Grassly twice quoted Joe Biden regarding the uselessness of an FBI report. Another Republican quoted it a third time. I don't know the context of Joe Biden's quote (supposedly from the Clarence Thomas hearings), but the plain common sense is simple. The FBI can interrogate persons about the events of circa 1982 as testified to by Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh. They can assemble documentary evidence that either supports yesterday's testimony or exposes untruths. An FBI report, with skill and luck, can make a big difference.


Meanwhile, I can't help but observe how the Trump phenomenon has lowered the bar of behavior and standards of discourse for us all. Standards of society have already taken a hit.

Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, to allow time for an F.B.I. investigation into accusations of sexual assault against the nominee.----

The decision, made in a hurried closed-door meeting between Republicans on the Judiciary Committee and Senator Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, came after a dramatic reversal by Mr. Flake, who announced he would not support final confirmation until the F.B.I. investigates the allegations. With that stipulation, the Judiciary Committee then voted along party lines to advance Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Senate."

Kavanaugh and the Blackout Theory


. . . . In the days leading up to the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a theory arose that he might have drunk so much as a teenager that he did not remember his alleged misdeeds. The blackout theory was a way to reconcile two competing narratives. It meant that Christine Blasey Ford was telling the truth but so was Brett Kavanaugh. He simply did not remember what happened that night and therefore believed himself falsely accused. Several questions at the hearing were designed to get at this theory, but it gained little ground.

I want to be clear, up front, that I cannot know whether Judge Kavanaugh experienced a blackout. But what I do know is that blackouts are both common and tragically misunderstood.

Before the prosecutor Rachel Mitchell was mysteriously dispatched, she was aiming toward the above line of inquiry.

“Have you ever passed out from drinking?” she asked.

Kavanaugh’s answer was dismissive but slightly confusing: “I’ve gone to sleep, but I’ve never blacked out. That’s the allegation? That’s wrong.”

A few clarifications. First, I dare you to find the heavy drinker who hasn’t passed out from too much booze. To say you were just sleeping is like my dad saying he’s resting his eyes when he’s napping. It’s a semantic dodge. . . .

there is groping and there is strangling. or both. this is not a case of two high school sweethearts getting carried away.

i am inclined to believe the blackout theory, or the narcissistic liar theory...i said it did not happen so therefore it did not happen, said with true sincerity and belief.

If you only watched that stupid clip you linked to, Jos, no wonder you don't have a clue about what was going on. And why would you take the word of an attorney on the other side of the planet from these proceedings?

Trump is a proven liar, narcissist and meglomaniac. Anyone who receives his support is likely to be suspect.

The 11th hour comment is hereby corrected to 'before' federal judge Kavanaugh was nominated, Ford informed her duly elected Senator of Brett's behavior.


What makes this Brett guy so magnificent that there is no plan B??

answer: he is the only judge to say "A President is immune to prosecution and is above the law.

If...
I offered a ticket to oj_77 for a flight to DC to be interrogated but someone, don't know who, said 77 doesn't fly. I could then say "Then I might go to 77"

To be fair that does not make oj_77 a liar.

Its the same for Dr. Ford

So now it has emerged that trump has given the FBI a list of interviewees that they are limited to ... so, an "investigation", but not really an investigation.

Of course, not surprisingly, trump is tweeting that there is no limit on the FBI investigation ......

Once again , if you provide a link please identify in the text the name of the site. I don't want to inadvertently open Breibart again or any other extreme right wing site and provide them with a "hit". Breibart's readership has plummeted in the last year and I don't want to do anything to slow the decline of that den of creeps and weirdos. Better yet I'll just skip over the garbage you're posting, so never mind.

Sorry gillymor for not knowing your website preferences. Perhaps you might add that to your signature?

Mr Leunod,
Now about #LyingDrFord's fear of flying... A YT take on it

LyingDrFord's admission that she is afraid of flying by plane.. YouTube

Too, on the net, her early life difficulty with alcohol and drugs also appearing. I get the impression she got treatment for it, but skeptical that she had 65 male sex partners during the short time before then. Whether it is the promiscuity, or the drugs, which cause the behavior is a moot point. In all probability, like many young female college students, she may have been selling herself to fund her habit, through either the need for the narcotics, or because having gotten herself into the lifestyle, she needs them to deal with the emotional stress. Still we are all glad, I hope, that she recovered enough to complete her studies and get some qualifications in life.

Nor do I want to pursue challenging her Ph.D. as some are now doing. After all she has managed to teach classes for some time without negative result. Yet the FBI really looking deeper into it her college background will be under severe review this time around.

A sad result for both #LyingDrFord and Judge Kavanaugh.

But we have to be aware from the start, #LyingDrFord insisted on a public hearing, not the Democratic Party as some reported. She could have saved us all suffering her narcotic fueled display of nuttiness, and the poor Judge from public humiliation by electing to have the hearing in private. The same being the standard way to do such things.

To me she came off as an aw shucks witness with a touch too much of a rehearsed crack in her voice with a compelling eight year story of discovery of how an incident has affected her life. She was her own ideal expert witness and answered every question while pleading for an investigation.

He came off as an over the top interrupting, outraged, entitled, angry accusatory white man who describes himself as an impossibly squeakey clean person. He evaded 90% of the questions by Democrats and mentioned the word 'beers' 32 times. When he cried I was too uncomfortable to watch.

He seems to be the epitome of a spoiled brat obnoxious liar. imho

I don't know what would make you think that the 'crack in her voice' was 'rehearsed' - why would it have to be 'rehearsed'? Everything about her testimony seemed honest to just about everybody, even the Fox News commentators ... ?

A lot of Republicans called Dr. Ford's testimony "compelling and credible"(including trump) to the extent that it must have been a talking point prescribed for them by leadership. That being the case why is a perv still being considered for the high court.

'The truth shall see us free'

More about her life, #LyingDrFord ...also anti Trump activist..

SOME FUN FACTS: Here's Christine Ford’s timeline: 1982 - Something may or may not have happened with another 2 (or 4) teenagers at a party, she cannot remember who threw the party, where the party was held, who she was with or how she got home. She was drinking and said nothing to anyone. 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 - she said nothing. July 25, 2003: President George W. Bush nominated Kavanaugh to the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C Circuit - she said nothing. 2004, 2005 - she said nothing. May 11, 2006: The United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary recommended confirmation. Kavanaugh subsequently confirmed by the United States Senate - she said nothing. June 1, 2006: Kavanaugh sworn in by Justice Anthony Kennedy - she said nothing. 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 - she said nothing. 2012 She vaguely remembers 'something' may have happened in 1982, yet doesn't name Kavanaugh and still said nothing to authorities. 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 - becomes an anti-trump activist. 2018 - now 36 years later, with Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation looming, she pens an anonymous letter with grave accusations against Kavanaugh regarding foggy circumstance that occurred while they were both minors, then reveals herself and DEMANDS an FBI investigation before testifying to her incredible allegations. Amen.

When Bruce finds a topic he disagrees with he squats on a thread and they turn foul. He's been away for a while, perhaps you've forgotten his past behavior. And I'm also entitled to an opinion - he's a troll.


That being said, why is he still allowed to post as there are several folks much less obnoxious, belligerent, combative and libelous who have been summarily banned?

Can't be because Saint Joe Offer is his rabbi and defender, can it??

"Equal Justice Under The Law" seems as tho Mudcat has embraced Kavenaughism, no??


    "Curious" posted this in the Music section, not being able to post anonymously in the BS section. But it's not a music post, so it's not going to stay there. And by the way, I rarely support the banning of anyone, but I've been overruled a number of times recently.
