Christine Ford Has Taught Us That Liberals Hate the Sixth Amendment. Here’s Why.

Published

Today, Christine Ford informed the Senate Judiciary Committee that she would, at last, agree to testify on the incident she alleges took place between herself and Brett Kavanaugh in 1983.

She did, however, ask for more time to “negotiate” the conditions of her testimony.

There’s only one problem–she has no right to do so.

Ford originally agreed to testify before walking it back and saying she would like the FBI to first investigate Kavanaugh, something that would be out of the FBI’s jurisdiction as the crime would have been a state crime to be investigated by local police.

Now, she says she would only like the senators to question her during her testimony, instead of Kavanaugh’s lawyer, and to testify after Kavanaugh.

The Democrats, who dropped her story as an eleventh-hour hail mary attempt to stop the confirmation they’ve been vehemently opposing since before they even knew who Kavanaugh was, are unsurprisingly adamantly supporting Ford’s unusual requests.

There’s only one, huge problem.

Ford’s requests aren’t just unusual.

They’re unconstitutional. 

In this nation, we have a little thing called the Bill of Rights, and in it, everyone is guaranteed a right to face their accusers in court. You absolutely cannot be compelled to testify to your own innocence before you are given the opportunity to hear the accusation made against you.

The Sixth Amendment reads:

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

No matter where you go in the country or what court you are in, what makes our nation’s unique liberties so secure is that every single individual has the right to a fair trial and to answer the accusations made to them.

Kavanaugh has emphatically agreed to testify and has categorically denied every detail of Ford’s story. If Ford is telling the truth, and she would like her story to be taken into account as Kavanaugh is scrutinized by Congress before being appointed to the Supreme Court or not, our Founding Fathers have ensured both she and Kavanaugh have the means for justice to be served, freely and fairly.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is not her personal kangaroo court where Kavanagh may be condemned based on her word alone. Unfortunately, she has no evidence, no witnesses, and few details to provide to corroborate the claims she is making.

It will be a sad and terrible day in American when anyone can accuse someone else of a crime with no evidence and expect to be believed with no constitutional, due process.

Sexual assault is always wrong, but the best way to combat it is to properly scrutinize the charges before a court so that the integrity of our judicial system is maintained.

Hopefully, this is what we will see this week.

Poll: Majority of Americans Think Corporations have Gotten Too Political

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that American corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff.

A new poll finds that a majority of Americans think that U.S. corporations have gotten far too political and should get back to just selling stuff. We have witnessed a growing number of corporations going woke since Georgia passed its new election integrity law. These corporations are pushing a hardcore, left-wing line of lies against the Georgia and have made all sorts of false claims about the new law. But a recent poll by the Daily Wire finds that a majority of Americans are already sick and tired of the left-wing posturing of these corporations. The Daily Wire poll found that 64 percent of those surveyed are less likely to support these big-mouthed corporations. The poll also found that most Americans did not support the decision by Major League Baseball to pull its All-Star Game from Atlanta. https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845164169101313 https://twitter.com/guypbenson/status/1379845165897121792 So, why are these corporations doing all this despite the fact that they are pissing off half of America? Well, there are two reasons. First is cowardice. Instead of standing for American free speech and respecting the rights of the states to run their own lives, these corporations are siding with the anti-American left and are engaging in economic terrorism against us. They are doing this not out of principle, though. They are doing it to prevent people from suing them. After all, leftists sue everybody at the drop of a hat. Conservatives almost never do. That means these corporations are guessing that they can escape legal problems by mollifying the left despite angering the right. The second reason is business. These big corporations imagine that if they follow the left, it will help lead to the destruction of their smaller competitors and they will be the last men standing. They also imagine that they can control government through their big…

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…
