The Witch-Hunt Of Brett Kavanaugh

July 30, 2018: Christine Blasey Ford writes to the Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein.

This is one of the most disgraceful media witch-hunts of the modern era. On July 9, 2018, President Donald Trump announced the nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Leading Democrats and others were determined to stop this. While Ford almost certainly acted alone, her lachrymosal testimony was lapped up by them and by the media totally uncritically.

On November 2, 2018, Senator Chuck Grassley released a 414 page document which summarises this entire sordid affair. I have not included it in this database but that and related documents can be downloaded from US Government websites, and indeed the entire confirmation hearing was broadcast live on YouTube by sundry media organisations.

In her letter, Blasey Ford accused Kavanaugh and a schoolfriend of his named Mark Judge of attempting to rape her at a house party. In 1982! Feinstein withheld her letter for over a month. When Blasey Ford testified, many people (including me) found her compelling. Having said that, I didn’t believe the allegation, I thought maybe she was sincere but wrong. In that connection, listen to this short rant by Ann Coulter, dated September 27, 2018. (What appears to be the full version runs to 12 minutes 48 seconds and was uploaded to YouTube the following day). Herein, she explains how public figures are inserted into people’s memories. For less humorous and at times tragic failings of memory, the reader is referred to my live hangout for September 5, 2019. Also the entry for The Aetiology Of Hysteria (and follow the links).

After Ford testified, the Republicans very wisely brought in an experienced female sex crimes prosecutor to question her. Had they not done so, the Democrats may well have gotten away with this, and they may never have put another conservative on the Supreme Court. Rachel Mitchell was extremely non-confrontational when she questioned Ford, and managed to pin down two fairly significant lies.

Ford was unable to give any details about how she got home from the party, which prompted an idiot with credentials to explain why she couldn’t. My rebuttal is the October 18, 2020 video The JUNK SCIENCE Of JIM HOPPER which is linked from this page.

If Ford couldn’t remember the details of this particular party, Kavanaugh could because he appears to have documented his entire life! According to him, Ford wasn’t there, but it was Trump supporter Ali Alexander who cracked the case. Alexander’s video has long been removed from YouTube, but you can confirm what he said yourself. In 1997, Kavanaugh’s aforementioned schoolfriend Mark Judge published a memoir called Wasted TALES OF A GEN X DRUNK. Here is page 52; Kavanaugh is alluded to as Bart O’Kavanaugh.

At the time of writing (June 2022) the book can be read at the Internet Archive although you will need to log in (with your free account to do so).

That is the only mention of Kavanaugh in the book, and Judge does not give any directions re the house where said party was held. As Ali Alexander pointed out, Ford read this book from which she obtained some basic details, and based her lie on them. That is the real reason she couldn’t remember how she got home, Jim Hopper take note.

As well as a Professor of Psychology, Christine Blasey Ford is the co-author of over fifty peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters, so unlike Hopper she knew what she was talking about.

A former boyfriend of the young Christine Blasey (name redacted in the official report) cast serious doubt on her veracity. Two other men who contacted the Republicans said they had each had a similar experience with her around that time. Ford also attempted to rope in a close friend named Leland Keyser, hoping she would back her up or perhaps hoping to influence her memory. To appreciate how easy this is to do to level-headed but unsuspecting individuals, check out the work of Elizabeth Loftus, including the amusing Bunny Effect experiment. Whatever Ford hoped to achieve here, to her credit, the former Leland Ingham did not allow herself to be manipulated or taken in, and refused to back her up.

Being a professor of psychology, Ford may very well have hoped what happened next would, more brave women came forward. Quoting from the official report, page 26:

On September 25, 2018, Senator Harris’s staff referred a handwritten letter to the Committee signed by Jane Doe. Senator Harris’s San Diego office received the letter; however the envelope listed no return address. According to the letter, Justice Kavanaugh, with the help of a friend, sexually assaulted Doe while driving her home from a party. Doe claimed that Justice Kavanaugh slapped her, forced her to perform oral sex, and groped her. Doe also claimed that both men raped her “several times each” and that Justice Kavanaugh warned her that no one would believe her if she reported the incident. The author did not provide the year or any location (city, state, or country) in which this incident allegedly took place. Because the author’s identity was unknown, the Committee was only able to interview Justice Kavanaugh regarding the allegations. He denied ever engaging in the misconduct described.

Yes, they actually took this anonymous garbage seriously. After Kavanaugh was questioned about the contents of this letter, a woman named Judy Munro-Leighton claimed responsibility for writing it. This article shows how that one played out.

Earlier, on September 23, Michael Avenatti reared his ugly head again. This lowlife lawyer first came to prominence earlier in the year when he represented a woman who was paid off by Donald Trump with whom she claimed to have had a one-off sexual liaison. (Years later, Avenatti would be convicted of serious financial crimes including against her).

On September 26, Avenatti revealed the name of Kavanaugh’s most deranged accuser, Julie Swetnick, who claimed that as a teenager, Kavanaugh “orchestrated gang rapes of inebriated women”.

How much more of this garbage do you want to hear?

Somehow, Kavanaugh survived this cesspool of defamation and at the time of writing is a Supreme Court justice.

Christine Blasey Ford was showered with praise for her grotesque lie, but let us end on a high note. Here is her lawyer brazenly admitting her client lied. Misogynist Republicans? Yeah, right.
