Election Year Encore: Christine Blasey Ford’s Resurgence

Professor Christine Blasey Ford testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Just in time for the presidential election year, Christine Blasey Ford is back. The woman who the Democrats put on national television in 2018 to accuse SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in the early 1980s without any evidence, is promoting her new book. About what exactly? Oh yes, detailing what life was like before, during, and after, her testimony. Of course.

During those confirmation hearings’ six years, the media held Ford up as a martyr and hero, standing up for victims everywhere. We were told to “believe all women,” and that then-Judge Kavanaugh was not worthy of due process and would have to prove his innocence. The entire charade was a vomitous assault on what is supposed to be a fair, contemplative, and constitutional process. Instead, the senate Democrats deciding shouting “Witch!” at Kavanaugh was the better idea.

Now, Ford is sailing through book “interviews” which amount to nothing more than a big hug with the most supportive friends in the world. The New York Times has “reviewed” the book. Words like “lucid,” “important,” and “prosaic” set their tone. After all, what else are they going to do, be skeptical? And we know that’s not allowed.

The media continues to use the “believe all women” nonsense by default for women they like, with no real curiosity or any hint of skepticism. This despite the astonishing problem with an attitude presuming a man, not charged with or convicted of any crime, is guilty of the horrible crime his accuser alleges. Kavanaugh, as we know, powerfully condemned the accusation, asserted his innocence, and denies her allegation ever happened.

All of this is part of a machine, using Ford once again to re-smear Justice Kavanaugh, and like Anita Hill, she appears to being well rewarded for that “sacrifice.” Besides a book deal, the Times review did share a bit about how Ford is treated by the leftist establishment: “There are some perks from being in the public eye. Blasey Ford is served bisque by Laurene Powell Jobs, sleeps over at Oprah Winfrey’s house, goes backstage at a Metallica concert. Her sons get the actual shirt off Steph Curry’s back at a Golden State Warriors game.” That’s’ pretty heady stuff, which certainly impressed the Times reviewer. But it’s not because she’s in the public eye, it’s because she did deliver a political hit for the leftist establishment. For a woman whose supporters often said that she had “nothing to gain” with her testimony, it seems that wasn’t entirely accurate.

Keep in mind, she continues to tell a story that her own “witness,” a girlfriend who was also at the small party, disputes. In their book about the attack on Kavanaugh, Carrie Severino and Mollie Hemingway wrote:

“Her four named witnesses to the event all denied knowledge of it, some vociferously so. Even her lifelong friend Leland Keyser, who worked very hard to come up with anything, came to doubt her friend’s story entirely. And when she refused to say otherwise, mutual acquaintances tried to get her to change her story. Some U.S. senators thought the witness tampering so egregious that it should be prosecuted.”

After saying while she didn’t have any recollection of a party or of that happening to Ford, she said she still believed Ford’s account. A year later, in 2019, that changed, In an interview with two New York Times reporters for their book about Kavanaugh, The Washington Examiner reported:

“’In fact, she [Keyser] challenged Ford’s accuracy.’ […] ‘Those facts together I don’t recollect, and it just didn’t make any sense,’ Keyser told the authors… ‘It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s getting home,’ Keyser told Pogrebin and Kelly [the authors]. ‘I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.’”

Those same reporters then try to explain away Keyser’s opinion of Ford’s story by smearing her with a cheap shot: “Keyser’s memory might be affected by her struggles with alcohol and other substances.” Lovely.

So, let me see if I understand this now: we’re believing all women, except the women who contradict the preferred narrative. Got it.

And then there are the women of the “The View.” Yes, Ford was met with the standard slobbery and incurious lovefest as she joined the show to talk about the book, but Joy Behar revealed an important element of the left’s woke demands—she chastised some men in the audience for not applauding Ford. In today’s woke environment, we are all very familiar with the tactic of bullying and shaming those who do not conform or at least pretend they agree with the leftist narrative. This is how totalitarianism works, and I’m thrilled those who did not appreciate the circus refused to applaud. I certainly would not have done so.

 Throughout this charade, the seriousness of the issues itself is damaged. The weaponizing of the issue for a political scalp was obscene and unconscionable. The generational effort to help victims of sexual violence have access to justice was shockingly damaged by the slow-motion train wreck the world witnessed during the Kavanaugh hearings. As an advocate for women during most of my adult life, I can tell you ours was not a demand to destroy due process for the accused, or an insistence that accusers be automatically believed simply because they were women. Quite the opposite, in fact. If you need to ask people to ignore the principles of real justice, then you are telling people the accuser can’t be trusted. Ours was advocacy asking society and the justice system to simply take women seriously and treat them fairly when they came forward with an accusation.

The Democrats’ position condemning due process, saying the accused must prove his innocence, and the accuser’s veracity was not to be questioned, are exactly the positions you take when you know your allegation is false and can’t survive scrutiny. It reinforced the scurrilous belief that women used victimhood as a weapon against men. It had taken generations of advocacy to persuade Americans about the truth—that domestic violence, sexual violence, and sexual harassment were serious issues, and that women did not use these experiences as a pretext for attention, personal benefit, or their own malign intentions.

This appalling game did monumental damage to efforts to curtail the serious problem of sexual misconduct and was an insult to women who have genuinely suffered from such abuse. It also damaged those decades of work convincing people of the truth that women wanted only justice, not contrived revenge.

Anyone who believes the lies coming from this woman should have their head examined. Her so called college cohorts couldn’t support her lies. A book deal? Really? Too many woke companies in America now. Let’s cater to the masses of people who are clearly suffering from mental illness. Ford is a whack job. Then you have the men out there claiming to be women, and don’t forget the loud mouth woman soccer player who is a disgrace to American soccer league. The list of people can go on and on. Lame Stream Media gives them all their 5 minute of fame. It’s disgusting.

Perfectly written. Apparently, now all you have to do is “recall” an incident 30 years ago to win the multi-million dollar jackpot if you pick the right guy to accuse!
While I feel sadness for women who have legitimately suffered, there needs to be actual testimony from a reliable witness and a statute of limitations that is enforced for these kinds of accusations.

So when does Kavanaugh get to sue her for defamation and get half a billion dollars and go shopping with Rachel Maddow? Her and Jussy Smollett need a hug.

Justice Kavaugh should sue her for libel and take some of the millions in ill gotten gains she received. The only way to stop the nonsense is engage in the same law fare that the left uses.

Do we have to see her face plaster on everything again, how she is convincing is a mystery to me. She is hate and out to destroy everything we value, she needs to be put away.

Her “story” fabricated from the start. Didn’t think she’d have to show her face. Was told she’d just have to make false allegations and Kavanaugh would disappear. She didn’t know the date, time, or place, was even unsure about what she was accusing him of. Now a return to it. Another liberal left farce that was sadly given legs but luckily no traction. Probably Russia and Trump involved too, just wait. Hate this.

“It had taken generations of advocacy to persuade Americans about the truth—that domestic violence, sexual violence, and sexual harassment were serious issues, and that women did not use these experiences as a pretext for attention, personal benefit, or their own malign intentions,”
would, also, not serve the liberal justification for wholesale abortion which is the underlying “sacred cow” that is offered up in election years to remind voters that the right to one is ever dependent on the Democrat ability to pack the courts and keep a, recurrently, nauseating issue before the American electorate.

Out come the left corrupt lunatic retreads to influence the election, right on time. But hay, they wouldn’t do anything to influence the elections. Only “the Russians” would do something like that, ya know.

First of all I would like to strongly suggest that the American citizens not waste their money on Christine Ford’s book. This women chose, as an act of her own free will, to do the Democrats bidding in hopes of preventing Brett Kavanaugh from being appointed to the Supreme Court. The Democrats bought and paid for her to lie. And now she is back with a book!!!!! She really has no shame just like the Democrats who hired her to begin with. We all heard her story and watched her on TV! Enough is enough.

Balsy=Ford had her 15 minutes of fame 6 years ago. She shouldn’t even be out of jail yet. Feinstein should have been impeached for bringing this liar to the Senate in the first place. The women of the Coven (the view?) build her up as a champion for women ! the NYT s will make it a “Best Seller” and fill a warehouse. The Lefties are getting desperate to dredge this up again. O’Biden put in a judge that doesn’t know if they’re a woman ,

I can’t remember the name of the female senator who I saw (on TV) slip an envelope to the accuser’s lawyer. I must have missed the uproar about what and how much was in that envelope. I guess Dems were never given consciences

They did a “wash and wax” job on Ballsy Ford. The idiots on “The (MARXIST) View,” help her plug her book full of lies. Maybe someone should republish all her emails and posts that showed her to hardly be a virginal figure. Likewise, E. Jean Carroll–another LIAR and sex pervert!

Tammy Bruce has written a very good summary about the re-appearance of Christine Blasey Ford. Progressives are still making heroines of women who lie about having been raped. They are doing a horrible disservice to the true victims os sexual abuse and to the true victims of false accusations.

Come on AMAC! These people are America hating Marxist Communist among other things.If the election stealing liberal Democrats have their way FJB will be elected for a second term.50% of Americans don’t seem to give a d@mn about these people making a mockery of this country. Including weaponizing the DOJ, IRS and even the FBI!FJB is using taxpayer money to buy votes for his party! Which is another high crime/misdemeanor! The largest proof being that he is using executive order, ignoring the Supreme courts decision to the contrary! This person(FJB) is a traitor to this country yet Congress does nothing. Because they are part of the problem!

Why is this woman showing how much she dislikes herself? She shows such disrespect of other women who have to be strong for themselves; and represent others who are truthful.No, I wasn’t there- but she says she was; not remembering the date or any details of the supposed crime. It seems her gal pals don’t remember anything at all either. Just as the stupid woman who has accused President Trump, complete fabrication, but somehow gets a pile of money which she doesn’t deserve. Maybe President Trump needs to sue Jean Carroll for her accusations, lies and defaming him.Fair play.

I remember the Senate Democrats invited protesters in the hearing, where they disrupted an official government proceeding; kind of like certifying an election. None were arrested and charged. None have spent any time in jail.

In my opinion, this is all obviously a sham: and shame on those who make accusations to ruin anyone’s reputation just because they don’t like their politics: but democrats have been rats for a long time! Since the days of the beginning of the KKK at least!

To me these 2 women have reached the level of the filthy streets in Los Angelos CA. Willing to lie, deceive, destroy, drag unwilling friends into the dirt with them. The fact is: only a FOOL would ‘believe all’, they are dangerous, human beings. Get them out of ur life, they hurt true ‘victims’ male or female everywhere.

Again women don’t get to go back into events that took place years ago and claim rape period!It’s disrespectful to all women and especially to those who actually had the courage to stand up at the time of the incident and press charges.These women do harm to the credibility of all women who claim rape.
