Despite the attempts by Republican men to ram this nomination through, a woman is now setting the agenda.

Courtesy of NYT:

The Senate Judiciary Committee and lawyers for the woman who has accused Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her decades ago reached a tentative agreement on Saturday for her to publicly testify on Thursday, an apparent breakthrough that could alter the course of a bitter confirmation fight.

After a brief call late on Saturday, the woman’s lawyers and aides to Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the Republican chairman of the Judiciary Committee, planned to talk again Sunday morning to continue the halting negotiations over the conditions of the testimony, according to three people familiar with the call. Aides to Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the committee’s top Democrat, were also involved.

So now finally Ford will have the opportunity to tell her side of the story to the Senate Judiciary Committee and to the American people. 

It should be noted that even though the public is just now hearing about this attempted rape it has been affecting Christine Blasey Ford for over thirty years. 

Courtesy of WaPo:

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.”

These were the lengths that Ford, a professor and mother of two, once considered to avoid revisiting one of her most troubling memories — one she’d discussed only in therapy and with her husband. Instead, her deeply held secret would come to dominate the headlines, putting her and her family at the center of an explosive debate about the future of the Supreme Court.

And now on Thursday Ford will have to relive that attack while being aggressively questioned by GOP Senators and in front of TV cameras. 

I consider myself to be a fairly tough old dude, but this would be giving me panic attacks right about now. 

Fortunately for Christine Blasey Ford, she will have the support of literally millions of women who have gone through similar experiences in their lives. 

Millions of women who also vote by the way and will be carefully watching the Senators who question Ford during this hearing in order to determine if they deserve to remain in office after their next election cycle.

    ” So, I think that this is a situation that is not going to go away. The court- packing is going on big time, with people from the Federalist Society anointed, The Heritage Foundation.”
    “basically, for Judge Kavanaugh in particular, very expansive views of protecting a sitting president from either criminal or civil proceedings.

    And I think this president in particular is aware of that, because you know what? His mission is self-preservation every second, minute, hour of the day.”
    “What Republicans are doing to force this nomination through the Senate is morally wrong.

    Without John McCain’s stature to hide behind, Lindsey Graham is showing his true colors.

    This situation is not going to end with Kavanaugh’s confirmation, and if the day comes that Brett Kavanaugh is charged with sexual assault an impeached, spineless serpents like Sen. Graham will be held responsible for a confirming a nominee that never should have been confirmed to the highest court in the land.”

      “On Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McCONnell said that Kavanaugh will be confirmed no matter what occurs at the upcoming hearing.

      “In the very near future, Judge Kavanaugh will be on the U.S. Supreme Court,” McCONnell said Friday morning at the Values Voters summit for social conservatives.

      “$O, my friends, keep the faith. Don’t get rattled by all this. We’re going to plow right through it and do our job.””

        Basically Kavanaugh could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and they’ll confirm him anyway.

        That is the depths to which this disgusting corrupt administration and the Deplorable Party that enables him have sunk.

        This is ALL Bitch McConnell’s responsibility. He blocked Merrick Garland. He changes all sorts of precedent to support his agenda. He supported and continues to shield the Unindicted Co-Conspirator in the Oval Office. And now he’s pushing through as quickly as possible the worst possible candidate for a lifetime position on the more powerful court in the nation. There is NOTHING he will accept to prevent it from happening. And this all distracts from equally disqualifying behavior (which they have hidden or suppressed): the perjury committed in 2004, 2006 and possibly during this hearing, that suspecious $200,000, his written opinions that contradict what he has testified to during the hearing, what little he has actually said.

        Anyone with the honesty and integrity demanded of a SCOTUS justice would have recused themselves long before now, whereas Kavanaugh has proclaimed that he will NOT withdrawn his nomination. And why should he? He knows no matter what, McConnell is going to make this happen. Nothing can stop it. The disgusting DINOs will vote to confirm canceling out Collins and Murkowski even *IF* they voted no.

        Just because the Party of rape confirms him doesn’t mean it’s a done deal forever. He can be impeached just like a president can and thanks to Bitch it will only require 50%+1. Kavanaugh had already provided enough fuel for an impeachment. It’s simply a matter of how aggresive Democratic leadership is to protect the American people and “right the ship” of state.

    FYI”“Anita Hill came forward,” “The nation paused to hear Hill’s thoroughly credible story of workplace harassment: the pubic-hair jokes, Thomas’s proclamation of his love for porn, his boasting of his oral sex skills.” “I was grossed out and disgusted, and assumed that Dixon would denounce Thomas after Hill’s brave testimony,” Roderick added. “He didn’t. Instead, the silver-haired head of Dixon’s D.C. office told the press secretary, my boss, to craft a statement for the Senate floor in which Dixon would announce why he wasn’t changing his vote. I was enlisted to help.”

    Saying he considered quitting, Roderick claims a look at his student loan debt convinced him he needed to keep his job, so,
    “I wrote some gibberish about the long and storied presumption of innocence that may or may not have been included. “

    On the floor of the Senate, Dixon told his colleagues, “If Judge Thomas had been credible, and Professor Hill had not, the Senate’s choice would be equally clear. Since both were credible, however, and since it is impossible to get to the bottom of this matter, I think we have to fall back on our legal system and its presumption of innocence for those accused.”

    “The category error of this statement — its grievously false analogy — didn’t hit me until much later and has been on my mind since the Ford-Kavanaugh allegations emerged,”
    the writer confessed. “Dixon voted for Thomas, who slipped through the Senate with the closest confirmation vote in the 20th century: 52 to 48. Afterward, a few of us adjourned to a Capitol Hill bar to drink our frustration away. The senator’s chief of staff was there and sent over a round of drinks, knowing we were miserable. It didn’t help. I went home and threw up.”

    “It should be noted that even though the public is just now hearing about this attempted rape it has been affecting Christine Blasey Ford for over thirty years. ”

    You for get to add alleged. Also forgot to mention so far there has been, no proof, no testimony, no evidence, no witnesses.

    Sorry, but some of us are still Americans, and remember the importance of due process.

      And some of *us* are apparently Russian trolls or Deplorables sailing down the river of DENIAL.

      Where was fucking DUE PROCESS when Al Franken was being forced to resign. He did because he has integrity, not because he was guilty. Whereas fuckfact Kavanaughty is saying he will NEVER withdraw his nomination. Pretty much says it all.

        Lol 4:25. Lololololol.

        Don’t remember Al Franken being forced to resign…. Do remember a weak man who didn’t have the balls to stand up to militant feminism and gave up his seat like a pussy.
