Kavanaugh’s Accuser’s Lawyer Finally Breaks Silence – Makes Nasty Last Second Demand

Published

on

In yet another attempt to delay the confirmation of Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh until after the 2018 midterm elections, Christine Blasey Ford’ is now claiming through her attorney, Lisa Banks, that she is “not prepared” to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday for a hearing without a full FBI investigation into her allegations.

Yet despite her lack of preparation to give any sort of testimony or frankly to provide any proof at all to her eleventh-hour accusations from 36 years ago, Blasey Ford wants a law enforcement investigation of the incident. In fact, according to her attorney, Blasey Ford has no intention of testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee until such an investigation takes place.

Lisa Banks appearing in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper stated:

“Any talk of a hearing on Monday frankly is premature because she just came forward with these allegations 48 hours ago. And since that time, she has been dealing with hate mail, harassment, death threats. So she’s been spending her time trying to figure out how to put her life back together, how to protect herself and her family. And there hasn’t been an investigation and these are serious allegations.”

Banks adds: “She’s not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday. No investigation — any legitimate investigation is not going to happen between now and Monday. This is going to take some time and what needs to happen is there shouldn’t be a rush to a hearing here. There’s no reason to do that.”

Meanwhile, Kavanaugh himself is expected to testify Monday. He stated concerning these accusations at the White House:

“This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes—to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday. I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”

CNN reports:

“In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys argue that “a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions.”

The letter from Ford’s lawyers notes that despite receiving a “stunning amount of support from her community,” Ford has also “been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats” and has been forced to leave her home.

“We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you and Ranking Member Feinstein to discuss reasonable steps as to how Dr. Ford can cooperate while also taking care of her own health and security,” the letter from Ford’s lawyers said.

Ford’s attorney Lisa Banks told Cooper that Ford will talk with the committee but added:

“She is not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday. She will talk with the committee,” Banks said. “She is not prepared to talk with them at a hearing on Monday. This just came out 48 hours ago. Asking her to come forward in four or five days and sit before the Judiciary Committee on national TV is not a fair process.”

“If they care about doing the right thing here and treating this seriously as they have said, then they will do the right thing and they will properly investigate this, and she will work with them in that investigation and also to share her story with the committee,” Banks said Tuesday night.

Grassley said in a statement Tuesday night that there were never any plans to sit Ford and Kavanaugh together at the witness table, as Banks told Cooper during the interview. He said there is no reason for more delay.

“Immediately after learning of Dr. Ford’s identity from news reports Sunday, committee staff started working to gather facts related to her claims. We’ve offered Dr. Ford the opportunity to share her story with the committee, as her attorney said yesterday she was willing to do.”

“We offered her a public or a private hearing as well as staff-led interviews, whichever makes her most comfortable. The invitation for Monday still stands. Dr. Ford’s testimony would reflect her personal knowledge and memory of events,” Grassley said. “Nothing the FBI or any other investigator does would have any bearing on what Dr. Ford tells the committee, so there is no reason for any further delay.”

A Justice Department spokesperson said the FBI had forwarded the initial letter from Sen. Dianne Feinstein on September 12 to the White House counsel’s office in accordance with guidelines for conducting background checks.

The spokesperson noted that the allegation “does not involve any potential federal crime,” and said “if the FBI becomes aware of new information that raises suitability questions about a nominee or appointee, the agency will inform the White House, which is an existing agreement.”

"I don't see how you could throw her, cold, into a hearing. It's a almost cruel thing to do … it's an unfair contest." Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton on Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault https://cnn.it/2NjHsfA

House Dems: Trump’s ‘Go Back’ Comments ‘Politically Brilliant – He Won This One’ – CNN

Published

You gotta love how the left and Never Trumpers focus on “Send her back!” chant..yet. you hear nothing about the terror attacks committed by Antifa. Nothing wrong with the chant. The American people are tired of the constant anti-American hatred spewed by the left on a daily basis.

Trump supporters have been insulted, beaten, spit on, kicked out of restaurants and harassed daily. Since Trump has been in office…conservatives have been called every name in the book. Nazis, fascists, racists, bigots. But the left and never Trumpers want to focus on a chant. It’s amazing how the left is given a free pass on everything they do.

If you severely hate this country..do us a favor…leave!

Via The Daily Wire:

According to CNN, multiple House Democrats “from across the political spectrum” are “extremely frustrated” by the heightened focus on the so-called “Squad” of far-left freshmen Democrats, a development forced by President Trump’s escalating rhetoric against them in a move one of the lawmakers described as “politically brilliant.”

In a report published Wednesday after the Trump rally in North Carolina — which included a headline-grabbing moment in which some in the crowd began to chant “Send her back!” in response to Trump’s criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her “vicious anti-Semitic screeds” — CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash reported on the growing frustration among some of the House Democrats over the increased prominence of the “Squad”: Reps. Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA).

The conversations with several Democrats, whom Tapper and Bash stress span the political spectrum, took place over the last few days — and before the North Carolina rally.

“The President won this one,” one House Democrat told CNN in reference to Trump’s focus on the Squad and the Democrats vote Tuesday to condemn his “go back” comments. “What the President has done is politically brilliant. Pelosi was trying to marginalize these folks, and the President has now identified the entire party with them.”

“The President’s words and actions speak for themselves,” said another. “We need to focus on the issues that got (Democrats) here: jobs, health care … instead of the issues the President brings up deliberately. Anything that takes away from bread-and-butter issues is playing into his hands.”

Another “frustrated” Democratic lawmaker made clear to CNN that many on the left side of the aisle are “angry and annoyed” by The Squad’s attacks on members of their own party. “I can’t tell you the number of members who are angry and annoyed about them criticizing us,” the congressional member said.

The sharp escalation of the battle between Trump and the Squad began last week when the president came to the defense of Pelosi after Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the speaker’s rebuke of the Squad for portraying fellow Democrats as pro-segregation might have a racial component. Continue Reading

Dem Congressman Wants To Ban The Phrase ‘Illegal Alien’ From Gov’t Code

Published

on

Texas Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro, the twin to Julian Castro who is running on the Democratic ticket for president in 2020, is moving to strike the words “alien” and “illegal alien” from the government’s legal code, arguing that the terms are hurtful to the immigrant community. I think what ruffles him most is the word ‘illegal’ which they are.

“Words matter. It’s vital that we respect the dignity of immigrants fleeing violence and prosecution in our language. The words ‘alien’ and ‘illegal alien’ work to demonize and dehumanize the migrant community. They should have no place in our government’s description of human beings,” Castro stated. What part of ‘illegal’ doesn’t this guy get?

The Correcting Alienating Names in Government Act, otherwise known as the CHANGE Act (figures), seeks to strike those two words from the Immigration and Nationality Act and to replace them with the words “foreign national” and “undocumented foreign national.” The excuse du jour here is that it would make illegal immigrants safer and humanize them. What a load of horse manure. It’s evidently inhumane to accuse someone of breaking the law when that is exactly what they are doing.

“Immigrants come to our borders in good faith and work hard for the opportunity to achieve a better life for themselves and their family. Eliminating this language from government expression puts us one step closer to preserving their dignity and ensuring their safety,” Castro went on in a released statement.

From The Daily Caller:

“Castro is far from the only Democratic congressman to believe the words “illegal alien” are offensive.

“First, no one is illegal. That term is derogatory now because it dehumanizes people. You can say any other forms of maybe ‘coming in without any regulations’ or so forth, but the use of ‘illegal’ is disrespectful and I ask my colleagues to try in so many ways to not dehumanize our immigrant neighbors who are trying to come in for safe haven,” Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib said during a House committee hearing on July 12.

“No one is an ‘alien.’ This is family separation on a massive scale,” Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted in June. “Dehumanizing immigrants and tearing apart families will not make us any stronger. It will only destroy lives, traumatize children, and make our country less safe.”

“Omar said President Donald Trump uses the words “illegal” and “alien” to “justify horrific human rights abuses against migrants.”

“No one is an ‘alien.’ This is family separation on a massive scale,” Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted in June. “Dehumanizing immigrants and tearing apart families will not make us any stronger. It will only destroy lives, traumatize children, and make our country less safe.”

“Omar said President Donald Trump uses the words “illegal” and “alien” to “justify horrific human rights abuses against migrants.”

“Despite criticism from Democratic politicians, most Americans are still very comfortable with the word. Only 26% of respondents to a June Rasmussen poll answered “yes” when asked, “Is it offensive to refer to someone who has entered this country illegally as ‘an illegal immigrant’?” including only 30% of Democrats.”

I think the labels ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegal immigrant’ are very accurate. Most Americans agree with me.

It’s no surprise that Joaquin’s twin brother agrees with this move. Marxists of a feather and all that. But Americans, in general, won’t go for it and it will never get through Congress.

The Associated Press stylebook removed usage of the term “illegal immigrant” in 2013, saying that “illegal” should “describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally.” The AP also rejected the usage of “illegal alien” as well as “undocumented,” which it said was not an accurate term. And this is one of the main reasons that Americans no longer trust the mainstream media – they don’t like being manipulated like this.

Townhall says that PJ Media’s Tyler O’Neil accurately describes the bill as if it is something right out of 1984. And he is right.

“Democrats have launched an assault on basic language when it comes to immigration issues. They have demonized the Trump administration, blaming it for putting “kids in cages” — something that only happened on Obama’s watch — and for enforcing immigration law.

“Democrats have insisted that “no one is illegal,” even if they break U.S. law to enter the country. This involves an Orwellian redefinition of immigration — claiming immigrants cannot be “illegal” because to be illegal is supposedly less than human.”

Remember, the left did the same thing in regards to radical Islamism – when Obama was in charge, the DoD and other agencies scrubbed terminology that the left claimed was offensive to Muslims. Terms that actually were used to describe terrorists. This is yet another instance of word-burning… censorship to fit a political narrative. 1984 indeed.
