Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh are still front and center. As of yesterday, she was confirmed to testify on Thursday in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee. That should be interesting as none of the four witnesses she has named back her version of her story. And now a second accuser has surfaced with ridiculous claims that even her best friend claims are suspect.
Ford’s husband is now breaking his silence and what he says exposes the sick issue his wife has. Russell Ford, her husband, says Christine has long had issues with not getting “the attention or respect she felt she deserved.” Sounds like she has a craven obsession with attention and respect. Well, she’s getting attention… as for respect, not going to ever happen here. In fact, she’s made herself a laughing stock.
From the Washington Post (of all places):
“When Donald Trump won his upset presidential victory in 2016, Christine Blasey Ford’s thoughts quickly turned to a name most Americans had never heard of but one that had unsettled her for years: Brett M. Kavanaugh.
“Kavanaugh — a judge on the prestigious U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia — was among those mentioned as a possible replacement for Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in 2016. When Trump nominated Neil M. Gorsuch, Ford was relieved but still uneasy.
“Then Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced his retirement and Ford, 51, began fretting again.
“Her mindset was, ‘I’ve got this terrible secret… What am I going to do with this secret?’” her husband, Russell Ford, 56, recalled.
“To many, Kavanaugh was a respected jurist. To her, he was the teenager who had attacked her when they were in high school.
“Ford had already moved 3,000 miles away from the affluent Maryland suburbs where she says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a house party — a charge he would emphatically deny. Suddenly, living in California didn’t seem far enough. Maybe another hemisphere would be. She went online to research other democracies where her family might settle, including New Zealand.
“She was like, ‘I can’t deal with this. If he becomes the nominee, then I’m moving to another country. I cannot live in this country if he’s in the Supreme Court,’” her husband said. “She wanted out.”
“She didn’t always get along with her parents because of differing political views,” Russell said. “It was a very male-dominated environment. Everyone was interested in what’s going on with the men, and the women are sidelined, and she didn’t get the attention or respect she felt she deserved. That’s why she was in California, to get away from the D.C. scene.’”
It sounds to me as if she hated Kavanaugh because he never paid attention to her and because of his politics. Personally, I don’t believe her story at all. I think this was a planned smear campaign from the left. Otherwise, as Lindsey Graham pointed out, why did she get a polygraph in August and retain an attorney at that time?
I believe Ford definitely has issues of the mental variety. This whole thing reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials. Feinstein is now calling for an indefinite delay to Kavanaugh’s nomination. How convenient… that’s exactly what the left wanted before they came up with this dog and pony show.
President Trump is not backing down on his support of Kavanaugh either. In fact, he’s doubling down on backing Kavanaugh.
“President Donald Trump dismissed on Monday the idea that his Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh would withdraw his nomination after a woman accused him of sexual harassment over 30 years ago.
“What a ridiculous question,” Trump replied when asked by reporters at the White House about whether his nominee would withdraw.
“But the president appeared willing to work something out with Democrats to get a “full process” and “hear everybody out.”
“I’d like to see a complete process. I’d like everybody to be very happy,” he said. “Most importantly I want the American people to be happy because they’re getting somebody that is great.”
“Trump expressed skepticism about the timing of the allegation which Democrats knew in the Summer, specifically criticizing Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
“I wish the Democrats could have done this a lot sooner because they had this information for many months,” he said. “And they shouldn’t have waited til literally the last days.’”
Ford is a registered Democrat who has given small donations to political causes. She has donated to ActBlue, a nonprofit group that aims to help Democrats and progressive candidates, The Wall Street Journal reported.
This is not a matter of trust… it’s a matter of facts. Ford can’t recall the year it happened, where it happened, when it happened, who hosted the party, who was there, who brought her or who took her home. Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s and the second accuser, has an even flimsier story.
Ramirez’s allegations are gross. Friends of both Kavanaugh and Ramirez dispute her allegations — three of whom spoke to the New Yorker on the record. The others remained anonymous.
Both accusers are sick in my opinion and this is nothing more than a coordinated political hit job. Just stop already.

Newly Released Emails Confirm FBI Tried To Work Deal With State Dept To Minimize Hillary Email Scandal
The insanity never seems to end and once again the great Judicial Watch is doing Congress’ oversight job! It’s time arrests start happening.
Newly released FBI emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request confirm that James Comey’s FBI attempted to work out a quid pro quo deal with the Obama State Department to help cover up the Hillary Clinton private email server scandal just weeks before the 2016 election.
Back in October 15, 2016, Fox News first reported on the deal but full confirmation did not come until this week when the government watchdog group Judicial Watch released FBI communication related to the deal.
“FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a ‘quid pro quo’ between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News,” Herridge and Browne reported in 2016. “This is a flashing red light of potential criminality,” Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah) told Fox News at the time. “In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed,” he said.
Fox News reported on Monday that over two years later, the allegation that the FBI and State Department floated a “quid pro quo” deal has now been confirmed, and it originated with the FBI:
The trove of documents turned over by the FBI, in response to a lawsuit by the transparency group Judicial Watch, also included discussions by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page concerning a potential quid pro quo between the State Department and the FBI — in which the FBI would agree to effectively hide the fact that a Clinton email was classified in exchange for more legal attache positions that would benefit the FBI abroad, and allow them to send more agents to countries where the FBI’s access is ordinarily restricted.
The quid pro quo would have involved the FBI providing some other public reason for withholding the Clinton email from disclosure amid a Freedom of Information Act request, besides its classification level. There are no indications the proposed arrangement ever took place.
And, in the face of mounting criticism aimed at the FBI, the documents revealed that Comey quoted the 19th century poet Ralph Waldo Emerson by assuring his subordinates, “To be great is to be misunderstood.”
The FBI did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the released emails.

WATCH: Trump Slams Pelosi On Wall, Kneeling NFL Players In Pre-Super Bowl Interview
In President Trump’s pre-Super Bowl interview with CBS News, he slammed Rep. Nancy Pelosi on the wall, as well as NFL players who kneel during the National Anthem. He was in fine form. He nailed Pelosi at the beginning of the interview and then took on the NFL and kneeling at the 15:40 mark. Trump also took extreme exception with those who are second-guessing his decision to pull American troops out of both Syria and Afghanistan.
In the interview, Trump also briefly discussed football. He said he would not push his son Barron to play the game, knowing the risk of long term brain injury. He also pointed out that soccer is becoming more popular as a sport.
But it’s his flaying of Pelosi that was riveting. President Trump referred to Nancy Pelosi as “very rigid” and intimated that he may sidestep Congress to get the wall built by declaring a national emergency. Rumor has it that an executive order is ready and awaiting his signature. At least Trump didn’t call Pelosi “frigid” although that certainly came to mind.
“I think that [Pelosi] was very rigid — which I would expect — but I think she is very bad for our country,” Trump told reporter Margaret Brennan. “She knows that you need a barrier. She knows that we need border security. She wanted to win a political point. I happen to think it’s very bad politics because basically, she wants open borders. She doesn’t mind human trafficking or she wouldn’t do this.”
“She can keep playing her games, but we will win. Because we have a much better issue. On a political basis, what she’s doing is — I actually think it’s bad politics, but much more importantly it’s very bad for our country,” he stated.
“You know, there have been plenty of national emergencies called,” Trump explained. “And this really is an invasion of our country by human traffickers.”
Trump wasn’t anywhere near done. She “doesn’t mind human trafficking,” Trump added, torching Pelosi very nicely.
From The Daily Wire:
“As for the kneeling NFL players, Trump believes the recent boost in NFL ratings proves he was right that anti-racism protests were souring Americans on professional football. Trump also believes he’s made progress handling some NFL players’ complaints. “A lot of people in the NFL have been calling and thanking me,” he said, referring to his part in efforts to reform the criminal justice system and grant clemency to a number of federal prisoners serving long sentences for drug crimes.
“You have to respect our flag and our country. I want that as president and I’d want that as a citizen. And I have a very good relationship. I did them a big favor in negotiating the USMCA, which is basically the replacement to NAFTA, which is one of the worst trade deals ever made,” Trump said. “And Roger Goodell, this is a dispute that has gone on for years. Roger Goodell called me and he thanked me.”
“In a final interview, which aired just before the game, Trump touted his plan to withdraw American military forces from Syria and Afghanistan, noting that the United States’ commitment to the two countries won’t be dimmed by a change in troop presence.
“We’ll come back if we have to,” Trump said.
“We have very fast airplanes, we have very good cargo planes. We can come back very quickly, and I’m not leaving,” Trump added, hammering in the possibility that American troops could easily re-deploy to the region. “We have a base in Iraq and the base is a fantastic edifice. I mean I was there recently, and I couldn’t believe the money that was spent on these massive runways. And these — I’ve rarely seen anything like it. And it’s there. And we’ll be there. And frankly, we’re hitting the caliphate from Iraq and as we slowly withdraw from Syria.”‘
This isn’t the first time President Trump has given an interview before the Super Bowl. He’s done it a number of times now. His State of the Union Address this week promises surprises but will also touch on these issues.
