Can You Smell the Desperation?

After an insane 24 hours full of blatant misinformation from the accuser's camp, THIS is what they come up with.

The English language. How does it work?

They've got him now folks. HUGE "walkback" by the Kavanaugh camp. Just wait until you see it......

I'm not sure about you, but I don't feel like I missed anything. Nor do I see a "walkback" here. If you read the thread, Hatch's office was clarifying exactly what Judge Kavanaugh said after the Senator had paraphrased the judge's comments. My question for Aaron Blake is what was Kavanaugh supposed to say?

Dr. Ford has given a very vague date range of maybe her own sophomore year, no specific location and has reported between two and four boys were there. Then her attorney said one girl may have been too. She doesn't remember how she got there or how she got home. So she is accusing Judge Kavanaugh of assaulting her at some party, with some people in attendance, sometime during her sophomore year. Exactly what is he supposed to say other than he was not at a party that meets her very vague description?

He can't say I wasn't at "the" party. That would indicate he knew precisely the event she was referring to. He has made it clear he does not. So have the other two men that have come forward. The fourth man and possible woman have not yet made statements.

The clarification from Hatch's office actually makes more sense than the good Senator's paraphrasing. It is precise in it's meaning and consistent with Kavanaugh's original statement on the matter. He has no idea what event Dr. Ford is referring to. The event she describes is not one he recalls. The longer this goes on, I am becoming less sure Dr. Ford does either.

To be clear, I was all for Dr. Ford having a chance to tell her story on Monday. If she chooses to do so, I will listen respectfully. However, as the victim of a life threatening encounter 27 years ago, I am looking for substance. I could tell you the exact apartment the encounter originated in. I can give a pretty fair description of the weapon used and know what month it occurred in. I could tell you exactly who was there when it started and who was there when it was over. I could take you to the grocery store I ran into when my assailant was distracted and tell you exactly how I got home. Fight or flight instinct is a funny thing, but I guarantee it will burn some substantial details into your memory.

If she chooses not to testify and insist on ridiculous conditions such as an FBI investigation, then I will feel my skepticism is further justified. Certainly the three ring circus Democrats have created around this entire confirmation process is not helping. If she truly was the victim of an assault, the Democrats are just victimizing her again for political gain. And that is the most charitable assumption I can can make about Feinstein and company at this point.

She needs to testify, but more importantly so does Kavanaugh. If his high school was the continous drunk party that his classmates have described he should not be on the supreme court. Find someone better.

The Democrat Party has devolved into a Party of OUTRAGE that uses a narrative devoid of FACTS and DATA as their basis for everything. They believe 100% in their IDEOLOGY though myopic and delusional as a blueprint for the creation of Paradise on Earth. Any obstacle in their way is viewed by the Collective as a threat. They then take it one step further into their self-induced mirage by deeming the opposition, the obstacle, as EVIL. The EVIL must be destroyed regardless of the consequences both intended and unintended.

The Judge Kavanaugh hearing is ample proof that the Democrat Party is in full "fundamental transformation of America".

They see no limits to how far they will go to destroy the "others. Senator Booker has his "Spartacus" moment covered in Lies, Deception and Misinformation.

For the Democrat Party and their Praetorian Guard Media (Mark Levin) Reality no longer exists that cannot conform to the IDEOLOGY. Therefore, their DENIAL is so powerful that they create an Alternative Reality that acts just like an echo chamber where the Collective on a 24/7 Loop has absolute conformation of their beliefs.

Bill Clinton found the need to have the word is defined for him. Peter Stzrok said "There is no there there". Obama in his attempt to redefine America asked for the "fundamental transformation of America". And the latest is the Op-Ed from Anonymous, a declared member of the Resistance, the Resistance against the Presidency of Donald J Trump.

This has become the world of Bizzaroland where everything is portrayed in the Seinfeld episode where George does the OPPOSITE of what he normal did.

There can be no question that the Rubicon has been crossed, all Red Lines erased and its all about Open Bodrers where structure is twisted to fit the current Narrative.

George Washington in his Farewell Address not to Congress BUT to We, the People said "...that your union and brotherly affection may be perpetual; that the free constitution, which is the work of your hands, may be sacredly maintained; that its adminis- tration in every department may be stamped with wisdom and virtue; that, in fine, the happiness of the people of these states, under the auspices of lib- erty, may be made complete by so careful a preser- vation and so prudent a use of this blessing as will acquire to them the glory of recommending it to the applause, the affection, and adoption of every nation which is yet a stranger to it".

Washington goes on to say, The unity of government which constitutes you one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so; for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real indepen- dence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad, of your safety, of your prosperity, of that very liberty which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed, to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most con- stantly and actively (though often covertly and insid- iously) directed, it is of infinite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, ual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the palla- dium of your political safety and prosperity; watch- ing for its preservation with jealous anxiety; dis- countenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts".

Washington deeply understood that the UNITY of America through its citizenry was fundamental it its very existence and stated For this you have every inducement of sympathy and interest. Citizens by birth or choice of a com- mon country, that country has a right to concen- trate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discrimi- nations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together. The independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint councils and joint efforts—of common dangers, sufferings, and successes".

The Congress, the Press and We, the People need to refresh our awareness and attention to George Washington's Farewell Address and its impact and importance of the greatest country ever created by Mankind that he helped build and then turned over to We, the People.

Its s our duty and obligation to hand off to our children, grandchildren and posterity that same IDEAL that George Washington handed off to us.

Move on and vote tomorrow. If she isn't willing to testify on Monday, then proceed. This is a lot bigger than a false accusation from 36 years ago. If she wanted to be taken seriously, then she should have her details together and be willing to testify immediately. Otherwise, kick the dust off and move on.

No evidence, no corroboration, lots of time passed.. there's nothing to investigate. Just one partisan accusation and a lot of people desperate to believe it to support a narrative and stall a vote.

I can certainly smell the desperation. From those who want to rush this through without an investigation.
