Kavanaugh Accuser Given Invitation to Testify, Guess What The Answer’s Been so Far?

Published

on

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley has stated that the high-stakes hearing he scheduled for SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh to investigate matters involving an accusation of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford could be tossed out if the woman doesn’t accept the invitation that’s been extended to her.

This is just the latest development in this huge mess that’s been unfolding over the last few days, after Ford came forward, 35 years after the incident, to point the finger at Kavanaugh for sexual misdeeds. Kavanaugh himself has vehemently denied the charges and volunteered to cooperate with the committee no matter what they ask for.

Things are certainly not looking good for this lady.

“We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours three or four times by email and we have not heard from them, and it kind of raises the question, do they want to come to the public hearing or not?” Grassley said on The Hugh Hewitt Show.

Asked whether there would be a hearing if Ford did not agree to appear, Grassley suggested he couldn’t see a reason to hold one.

“What would be the purpose of the hearing if Dr. Ford doesn’t want to respond?” Grassley said.

n the case Ford accepts the invitation, Grassley said he is considering the possibility of having an independent questioner ask all the questions to Ford.

Ford, a California-based professor, revealed her identity over the weekend in a Washington Post report. She said that Kavanaugh, while in high school, pinned her down, tried to remove her bathing suit and put his hand over her mouth when she attempted to scream. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what the #MeToo Movement looks like when it’s been weaponized for political purposes. And that’s not to say that everyone involved in the movement has fabricated their assault stories.

Far from it.

In fact, the vast majority of women coming forward about abuse and mistreatment are victims who have been denied justice. It’s time to remedy that. As quickly as possible.

However, each of these incidents needs to be taken case-by-case and thoroughly investigated so that decisions aren’t made on the fly that end up costing a person’s career, livelihood, and their family.

The GOP is clearly taking Ford’s accusation seriously, which is why they’re providing her an opportunity to speak up about the incident she alleges happened. Why not take that and expose this guy if he’s really guilty?

There’s definitely something fishy going on here. Let’s hope they get to the bottom of it soon.

Putin Draws ‘Red Line’ in Ukraine, Says Foreign Meddling Could Lead to Missile Strike

This certainly isn’t the first time that Putin felt the urge to proclaim his bravado to the world, but it may be one of the last times that he gets to do so without retaliation.

Vladimir Putin

There are few villains more readily apparent in this world of ours than Vladimir Putin.

The Russian leader, (who’s bent and rewritten the rules to remain in power for decades), has dropped his mask.  He’s no longer trying to hide his intentions, or even claim that he’s not being a bully.  Instead, the former KGB man has simply decided that he’s going to do what he wants, and there’s nothing that anyone can do about it.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday sternly warned NATO against deploying its troops and weapons to Ukraine, saying it represents a red line for Russia and would trigger a strong response.

Commenting on Western concerns about Russia’s alleged intention to invade Ukraine, he said that Moscow is equally worried about NATO drills near its borders.

Speaking to participants of an online investment forum. Putin said that NATO’s eastward expansion has threatened Russia’s core security interests. He expressed concern that NATO could eventually use the Ukrainian territory to deploy missiles capable of reaching Moscow in just five minutes.

“The emergence of such threats represents a ‘red line’ for us,” Putin said. “I hope that it will not get to that and common sense and responsibility for their own countries and the global community will eventually prevail.”

Then, not so subtly…

He added that Russia has been forced to counter the growing threats by developing new hypersonic weapons.

“What should we do?” Putin said. “We would need to develop something similar to target those who threaten us. And we can do that even now.”

He said a new hypersonic missile that is set to enter service with the Russian navy early next year would be capable of reaching targets in comparable time.

“It would also need just five minutes to reach those who issue orders,” Putin said.

WOKE JOKE: Mag Ripped for Declaring Phrase ‘Invasive Species’ Problematic

The breadth of the American vocabulary is shrinking, and this is a shame that is fully owned by the radical left. 

Published

How far is too far these days?  Are we ever going to hit the bottom of the barrel when it comes to wokeness?  Is there a bottom?

It may only be months before activists start declaring that we rename entire cities on account of some extrapolation in the orbit of their name.  This is heading down a path that leads us to darkness – where the real evil, the really vile ideologies of our nation are so well-hidden that they mutate and grow and fester.  They’ll be so far removed from society that it will appear as though they are on another planet, and they will be plotting and preparing in an effort to shatter the phony, whitewashed facade of society once again. And, because they were allowed to work in secret, there’s no telling what they’re bringing to the fight now.

Yet still, the liberal left is pushing to bury our words and paint a thin veneer of care over our entire vernacular. Their latest campaign is downright laughable.

Left-wing news website Vox published an article this week that claimed it was time to stop demonizing “invasive” species, arguing that the ongoing use of the term divided life on Earth, including people, between native and non-native.

In the Sunday piece, freelance journalist Marina Bolotnikova blamed climate change for the forced migration of certain species, criticized measures taken by some governments to terminate those species, likened their treatment to the experiences of immigrants and suggested the term “invasive” wasn’t appropriate to describe the migrating groups.

“Ecologists expect climate change to create mass alterations in the habitats of these ‘range-shifting’ or ‘climate-tracking’ species, as they’re sometimes called, which will reshuffle ecosystems in ways that are hard to predict. The migrations are critical to species’ ability to survive hotter temperatures,” Bolotnikova wrote, citing instances of dark unicorn snails migrating from Mexico to California as an example.

Then arrived the sheer lunacy:

She later referred to conservationist efforts in North Carolina to prevent coyotes from mating with endangered red wolves as bearing “uncomfortable parallels to Western preoccupations with racial purity.”

“That’s why some scientists look askance at the influence of invasion biology and argue that the field has a baked-in, nativist bias on documenting negative consequences of introduced species and preserving nature as it is,” she wrote.

“What’s more, the very notion of ‘invasion’ draws on a war metaphor, and media narratives about non-native species are remarkably similar to those describing enemy armies or immigrants,” Bolotnikova added before citing a news story that referred to armadillos “besieging” North Carolina as “pests” and “freakish.”

The breadth of the American vocabulary is shrinking, and this is a shame that is fully worn by the radical left.
