Let me say this woman has a severe credibility gap, and likely a big hunger for a book deal, or some other lucrative benefit from this narrative she has given us
Christine Blasey Ford, the liberal professor who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of groping her 36 years ago, is being blasted on social media for making laughable demands as preconditions to testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee..
Specifically, Ford is demanding the following before she agrees to testify on her own behalf regarding her dubious 11th hour allegations:
- Ford must not be questioned by lawyers; only by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
- Judge Kavanaugh must not be in the room when she testifies.
- Kavanaugh must testify first.
She must testify first? She must not be in the same room as the man she is accusing? Screw due process I guess. Well at least she has dropped the “FBI investigation idiocy”
Ford has apparently abandoned her irrational demand for a “full FBI investigation” as a precondition after numerous attorneys pointed out that the FBI has no jurisdiction in a 36-year-old matter.
Moreover, the FBI conducts background checks (and performed six on Kavanaugh over the years) and does not do criminal investigations into decades-old allegations, especially when there’s no evidence or police reports.
Funny how those facts have somehow escaped the Democrats demanding that we MUST BELIEVE this woman or else.
And now, to those that ask me to just “believe the woman”, let me answer. No, I believe evidence. If Ford is honest, she will drop her demands and tell her story. That is a massive IF!
Speaking at the Texas Democrats’ Johnson-Jordan Dinner in Austin, Booker dismissed the patriotic importance of American symbolism, a topic that has been ripping through Texas, asserting that “it’s not how loud you say the pledge of allegiance or whether you stand or kneel for the national anthem,” but rather how much one loves other Americans. “You cannot love your country unless love your fellow countrymen. And that’s hard in this context. It is very hard. The calls to tribalism in our country are louder than they’ve ever been,” Booker told the crowd. “I hear people judging folks just because of what party they say they’re in.”
Taking a veiled shot at Cornyn, Booker called out the senior Texas senator, proclaiming his love for his fellow colleague while defending his combative resistance.
“I’m never going to let any American pull me so low as to hate them. I don’t care if you’re the president of the United States. I don’t care if you’re the senior senator from the state of Texas,” Booker continued. “You are my fellow American. I will fight your policy. I will resist your broken ideas. But I will love you as a fellow American.”
Good Freaking Grief. This from a guy who spews some of the most divisive rhetoric going?
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, seizing on an explosive op-ed from an anonymous administration official, said Thursday that it’s time to use constitutional powers to remove President Donald Trump office if top officials don’t think he can do the job.
“If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment,” Warren told CNN. “The Constitution provides for a procedure whenever the Vice President and senior officials think the President can’t do his job. It does not provide that senior officials go around the President — take documents off his desk, write anonymous op-eds … Everyone of these officials have sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. It’s time for them to do their job.”
Booming economy, ISIS decimated, very low unemployment, booming GDP, a revitalized military………. Sounds like Trump IS doing his job, and America is reaping the rewards. No wonder leftist Warren is so agitated
Former Secretary of State John Kerry would not rule out running for president in 2020 when questioned by “Face The Nation” host Margaret Brennan in an interview that’s set to air on Sunday.
Kerry, who was the Democratic nominee for president in 2004 but ultimately lost to former President George W. Bush, didn’t dismiss the idea of another campaign.
“Talking about 2020 right now is a total distraction and waste of time,” Kerry told Brennan, adding, “What we need to do is focus on 2018.”
Another “fresh face” the Democrats might pick to run
