This is just unbelievable. Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) has publicized her intention to nominate Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for a prestigious award. You remember Ford… the woman who bore false witness over and over again against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, accusing him of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago. No credible witnesses backed her up and her story was full of holes. It was a political hit job.
Monday evening, Speier tweeted out that she would be nominating Ford for the prestigious Profiles in Courage Award, which is given out by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. “Nominating Dr. Christine Blasey Ford – a true American (s)hero who sacrificed so much to do what was right for our country and for the pursuit of truth of justice – for this year’s Profiles in Courage Award @JFKLibrary. She is an inspiration to us all,” Speier tweeted.

Ford made a name for herself by coming forward and accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault. It was the left’s attempt to stop Kavanaugh from tipping the scales toward overturning Roe v. Wade. None of the details she provided could be verified. She could not tell anyone exactly where or when the assault occurred. Supposedly it was in the early 80s. None of the witnesses she named could remember the party she recalled. One of those was her best friend who could not recall ever even meeting Kavanaugh.
Ford claims she left the alleged party after the attack. She says Kavanaugh pushed her into a room and onto a bed. He then allegedly groped her and tried to remove her clothes. If I remember correctly, she originally accused a friend of his of helping to hold her down too. No one remembers driving her home from the party either. Not even her own parents supported her in this.
From The Daily Wire:
“But it doesn’t matter whether she was credible or not. For Democrats, she tainted a right-leaning Supreme Court Justice, and that’s all that matters.
“The Profiles in Courage award is meant to recognize “a public official (or officials) at the federal, state, or local level whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of Profiles in Courage, President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, which recounts the stories of eight U.S. senators who risked their careers by embracing unpopular positions for the greater good,” according to the Kennedy Library website.
“Ford may qualify as a public official since she is a professor at Palo Alto University in California.
“The award has been given to 51 recipients, including past presidents Barack Obama, George H.W. Bush, and Gerald Ford.
“Ford said she received death threats after she was forced to come forward (she had originally wished to remain anonymous but Democrats mishandled her accusation, leading to her coming forward) and also received more than $700,000 through a GoFundMe account.
“Speier nominated Ford in part for her “pursuit of truth of justice.” Maybe Ford believes her truth, but the media’s handling of the entire allegation was anything but a “pursuit of truth of justice,” as they rushed to report anything that may have made Kavanaugh look bad and ignored information that may have exonerated him.
“It’s obviously unclear whether Ford will get the award, but considering that the recipients typically promote progressive policies, she may end up winning.”
This is sick, twisted and just plain wrong. The left is rewarding a woman who needs professional help and who they used for a political agenda. She doesn’t need an award, she needs therapy. The same can be said of many on the left these days. Up is down and truth is subjective. There’s no justice in this at all.
