There has been an enormous amount of support out there for Doctor Christine Blasey Ford, the alleged victim of Judge Kavanaugh who accused him of sexually assaulting her three decades ago. However, there has also been a large amount of support for Judge Kavanaugh and his family in light of all the accusations that have seemingly destroyed their career.
Over $700,00 has been donated to Dr. Blasey Ford’s GoFundMe page for her family, security purposes, and her protection. Both fundraising sites were set up earlier in the month. The money was also for traveling expenses as she prepared to give testimony in Washington D.C.
Kavanaugh has denied all of the allegations. The two campaigns — “Help Christine Blasey Ford” and “Cover Dr. Blasey’s security costs” — had reached more than $700,000 at the time of publication. A number of other campaigns related to her also appear on GoFundMe based on a search of Ford’s name.
“We are working directly with all campaign organizers and guarantee the funds raised will be transferred directly to the Ford family,” Katherine Cichy, a spokeswoman for GoFundMe, told ABC News. “To be very clear, we have designated the Ford Family as the beneficiary of these funds. We cannot take the money out or otherwise direct the funds,” Cichy added.
During Thursday’s hearing, Rachel Mitchell, a veteran sex-crimes prosecutor who questioned Ford on behalf of Republican members of the committee, asked Ford who had paid for her expenses, including the polygraph examination she underwent about her memories of the alleged assault.
“I’m aware that there’s been several GoFundMe sites,” Ford responded. The page for the “Help Christine Blasey Ford” campaign said it was set up on Sept. 18 to support the “Palo Alto mom, a beloved professor and mentor and friend. This fundraiser is sponsored by her neighbors and colleagues.”
At the time of publication, the campaign had raised more than $490,000 from more than 10,700 people and was still accepting donations. The “Cover Dr. Blasey’s security costs” campaign, which was created on Sept. 18, raised $209,987 by 6,658 people over nine days, according to the site. It has closed and is no longer accepting donations.
“My reason for starting this fundraiser is to make concrete the power of collective action in providing security, and therefore support, for Dr. Blasey’s willingness to contribute to a thorough, fair vetting of a nominee for Supreme Court Justice,” that campaign’s organizer, Heidi Feldman, wrote on its page.”
A man named John Hawkins has created a GoFundMe though for Judge Kavanaugh and his family. As of now, there has been $370,000 raised towards the $400,000 goal. The fundraiser was accompanied by a very heartwarming dialogue about why the fundraiser was created to begin with.
The GoFundMe fundraiser read the following,
“Like many decent people from both parties, I have been disgusted by the unsubstantiated 36 year old smears aimed at Brett Kavanaugh. We live in a country where innocent until proven guilty is supposed to mean something; yet Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation is being dragged through the mud while his family is facing non-stop death threats.
This is a horrible way to treat a good man who has dedicated his life to public service. So many unethical people are giving unprovable 36 year old accusations the same weight as 6 FBI background checks, hundreds of hours of hearings and testimony under oath. It is disgraceful.
What I’d like to do is raise money for Brett Kavanaugh’s family to use for security or however they see fit. All of the money collected will go to Brett Kavanaugh’s family or alternately, if they refuse to accept it, to a charity of their choice. I have already reached out to a contact who should be able to put me in touch with Brett Kavanaugh’s family. If he can’t do it, I have plenty of other contacts who should be able to make it happen. I will update this page after I have talked with his family.
I hope you will show your support for a good man who has been treated very, very badly.
Update: I have heard some people say that Brett Kavanaugh is rich and so his family doesn’t need the money. That’s actually not correct. According to Market Watch, “Brett Kavanaugh may become the ‘poorest’ Supreme Court justice .”
Update #2: Some people have asked who I am and how they know that the Kavanaugh family will get the money. My name is John Hawkins. You can read about me here on Right Wing News. My identity has been verified by both Twitter and Facebook. I do weekly columns at PJ Media and have a book out. I am not someone who can fade into the background, so when I tell you that the Kavanaugh family will decide what happens to the money, that is what will happen. I have also been in regular contact with a representative of GoFundMe. All funds will be held by GoFundMe until the family has been contacted and a clear plan has been agreed upon.
Update #3: I’ve reached out to Kavanaugh’s family through three different people and I also called his office and spoke to a secretary about this today. I will let everyone know after I have gotten in touch with them.
Update #4: I have a well connected contact who says he can get me in touch with Kavanaugh’s team. When I have guidance from Kavanaugh’s family, I will update. Also, congrats on taking this fund raiser over $50,000 while Judge Kavanaugh was giving his powerful testimony during the hearing. I’m proud of the success we’ve had and the support we’ve shown for the judge’s family.
Update #5: I have continued reaching out to the judge’s family through different sources, but haven’t yet had any luck reaching them. It has occurred to me that they may not want to be reached until after the judge’s confirmation vote, which would be very understandable. In any case, I will continue reaching out to the judge’s family until I get an answer from them. Last but not least, with everything Judge Kavanaugh is being put through, it is fantastic to see so many people publicly showing their support for his family.
Update #6: The original goal was $100,000. I upped that to $125,000 and then $150,000. After that, I went up to $250,000 and it looks like we’re about to blow past that number as well. It is amazing to see so many good people supporting the family of a good man who has been treated so poorly and I am sure they will be very excited when they see all the support that they’ve gotten.”

Kamala Harris Literally SPEECHLESS When Reporter Asks About Jussie Smollett Hoax – WATCH
Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris claimed the now-debunked attack on ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett was a modern-day lynching. “JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.” She had no evidence and now that it has been exposed as a hoax, Harris has nothing to say. Go figure.
When confronted over the hoax out of Chicago, Harris was literally dumbstruck and could not answer reporters over it. Smollett hired two Nigerian brothers and paid them $3500 at the time, promising $500 more when they got home to Nigeria, to stage a fake hate crime after an alleged racist letter Smollett received didn’t get enough attention. Upon hearing about the alleged hate crime, Harris accepted it at face-value despite the obvious holes in Smollett’s initial story.
Evidence has been uncovered from the hardware store where rope and bleach were purchased by the brothers who were acquaintances of Smollett’s. When confronted by a reporter on Monday asking her if her opinions regarding the Smollett incident have changed in light of the new evidence, Kamala Harris struggled to utter a phrase before side-stepping the issue. “Which tweet? What tweet?” Harris asked as the reporter questioned her about the “modern-day lynching” comment. Nice… that’s Politics 101 for corruptocrats.
“Um … I … I … Okay, so I will say this about that case, the facts are still unfolding, and, um, I’m very, um, concerned about obviously, the initial, um, allegation that he made about what might have happened,” she said. “And it’s something we should all take seriously whenever anyone, um, alleges that kind of behavior, but there should be an investigation. And I think that once the investigation has concluded then we can all comment, but I’m not going to comment until I know the outcome of the investigation.” Say what? Wow… that was simply unintelligible.
.@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.
This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.

Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman for the Republican National Committee, roundly criticized Harris for seemingly not remembering her being quick to blame Trump supporters for the Jussie Smollett attack. Harris has a convenient memory. “Kamala Harris had no problem using inflammatory rhetoric to tie the #JussieSmollettHoax to @realDonaldTrump & his supporters,” tweeted McDaniel. “Now that she has the facts, why can’t she even remember her divisive language? Why is she giggling about it?”
Harris has not even deleted her tweet in support of Smollett as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did. The California senator’s deflection reflects that of Cory Booker. He told people to withhold judgment until more facts came out. “The information is still coming out. I’m going to withhold until all the information actually comes out from on the record sources,” Booker said over the weekend. He just took Smollett’s claims at face value with no evidence as Harris did.
“The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe,” Booker tweeted in response to the attack. “To those in Congress who don’t feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.”
.@KamalaHarris's face and pause when asked about her previous tweet that the attack on Jussie Smollett was a "modern-day lynching" is something to behold

I think we’ve seen enough facts to know the whole thing is yet another leftist hoax. We don’t need to wait any longer on this incident – it is not aging well for the left. The Chicago police are no longer looking at Smollett as a victim here.
From Fox News:
“Smollett, who is black and openly gay, claimed he was assaulted by two men who yelled racist and anti-gay slurs– as well as the phrase “This is MAGA country!” — as Smollett was walking to his Chicago apartment. Chicago police arrested and questioned two Nigerian brothers in the alleged attack, but released them on Friday without charges. Investigators said they’ve requested a follow-up interview with Smollett, but the actor’s representatives said there have been no plans to meet with police for the time being.”

You know it’s funny… Harris and Booker never call for due process when accusing the right. But now they’re all for it because it’s one of their own. How hypocritical can you get?
For instance, during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, they immediately believed Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of sexual assault against the judge without a shred of evidence or a corroborative witness. And despite evidence vindicating Kavanaugh, they smeared him night and day. After all, he’s not a Hollywood celebrity or anointed by the left. I guess that makes all of this okay.

HA Ha! McConnell To Call Vote On Ocasio’s Green New Deal, Schumer’s PISSED
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who on a good day looks like he’s sucking on a lemon, ripped into Republicans for planning to force a vote on the Green New Deal. They want everyone on record concerning where they stand for this insanity. Schumer doesn’t want the Dems pinned down and he’s really ticked at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for calling the vote. McConnell is trolling the Dems and I love it.
Schumer called the plan a “stunt,” a “cheap, cynical ploy” and “a game of political gotcha.” Considering Schumer wrote the proverbial book on dirty politics, he should know. Actually, it is a valid move to make politicians say they are either for or against the Green New Deal. “The Republican leader announced he’s going to bring up a resolution he intends to vote against,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “Now that is what the American people hate about Congress — the pointless partisan games.” No sir… they hate the corrupt leftists tearing us apart.
Dear @SenateMajLdr McConnell:
Stop trying to distract from the fact that the GOP has no plan on climate change.
I'm headed to the Senate Floor to issue you a challenge to admit for the first time:
1. Climate change is real
2. It's caused by humans
3. Congress needs to act
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) February 14, 2019
Schumer isn’t the only Democrat calling foul here. They are terrified of being tied to a plan that would literally destroy the US and everything we hold dear. But most of the Democratic field running for the presidency in 2020 has already rallied behind the deal. Even so, Schumer, joined by colleagues on the Senate floor, said: “Bring it on.” He said Democrats “believe that we need to do something about climate change” and added: “Do Republicans?” Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with climate change and everything to do with greed, graft, and corruption.
McConnell promised a Senate vote on the Green New Deal last week. He wants Democrats to go on record. Nice tee-up for the 2020 race and reelecting Trump. “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell told reporters. “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. We’ll give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”
The Green New Deal was put forth by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She wants to transform our economy and way of life in an attempt to fight faux climate change. It recently came under scrutiny after revelations that a related FAQ document included passages promising a job to “all people of the United States” – including those “unwilling to work” – and suggesting air travel could be made obsolete. And don’t even get me started on eliminating cow farts.
“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast,” the now-deleted document also read. Then Ocasio-Cortez and her minions tried to claim that the doc was concocted by Republicans. She lied her ever-loving head off.
From Fox News:
“But McConnell’s move to bring the plan to a vote on the Senate floor will be a key test for Democratic presidential candidates such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, who are running on the progressive platform in 2020.
“While backing of the far-left proposal will ultimately improve their liberal bona fides and their support from the Democratic base, the support of the plan will undoubtedly be the target of attacks during the general election.
“President Trump has already begun attacking the Green New Deal, claiming it would “shut down American energy” and describing it as “a high school term paper that got a low mark” during a rally Monday in El Paso, Texas.
“Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said that McConnell’s plan to bring the plan to the vote will only show “just how out of touch Republican politicians are with the American people.”
“Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass, a co-sponsor of the plan, also decried McConnell’s move.
“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning,” Markey said.”
This is an attempt to wake America up and show them what will happen if the Democrats seize control. Al Gore never went away, he just co-opted the millennials and power-hungry climbers in the Democratic Party.
