Judiciary Talk With Two Men Who Believe THEY Assaulted Ford in ’82

Published

If we have learned anything from the #MeToo movement, it’s that when a man is guilty of that which he has been accused, he is likely to apologize and say he “remembers it differently” than his female accuser.

One man with some of the most explosive accusations made against him, Brett Kavanaugh, has emphatically denied every single detail of that which has been accused, while also making sure to affirm that he believes the women accusing him were assaulted…just not by him.

Well, late Wednesday the news broke that Kavanaugh was likely right.

Ford may very well have been assaulted, and the men who did so have now come forward.

And they are most certainly not Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.

Politico congressional reporter Burgess Everett posted on Twitter Wednesday evening that: “Committee staff have a second interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in the summer of 1982 that is the basis of her allegation. He described his recollection of their interaction in some detail.”

Elana Schor, also from Politico, posted around the same time that the Judiciary is also set to speak with a man who believes he was the assailant.

This revelation comes just as a third accuser has come forward with an incredibly weak accusation, the Daily Wire notes:

The news comes after reports surfaced late on Wednesday about Julie Swetnick, the woman represented by hyper-partisan lawyer Michael Avenatti, who claims that she witnessed Kavanaugh participate in gang-rapes.

Swetnick sued her previous employer for sexual harassment using a law firm run by Debra Katz, the lawyer for Christine Blasey Ford, one of Kavanaugh’s other accusers.

A separate report further damaged her credibility after it was revealed that her ex-boyfriend had filed a restraining order against her and noted that she’s “not credible at all.”

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
