Editor’s Note: This post will be chock full of “sentence enhancers,” because I an truly fed up with this bullshit. Alleged victim Christine Blasey Ford has rejected the Senate’s request to testify Monday, and is being allowed to dictate her own terms, at the expense of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
The GOP has been told that Ford does not want to fly from her California home to Washington, according to the Republican senator, which means she may need to drive across the country to make the hearing. Ford has reportedly told friends she is uncomfortable in confined spaces, indicating a physical difficulty in making the trip by plane.
She doesn’t want to fly? Are you fucking kidding me? Someone check the airline rolls to see when the last time this lying scrunt was on a plane. I’d wager she’s flown at least once in 2018. Hey Christine, Amtrak can get you from Los Angeles to Washington in less than three days. Get your fat ass on the rails.
The party is assenting to two of the terms Ford’s lawyers laid out in a Thursday evening call with staff from both parties, the senator said: limiting the hearing to one camera and ensuring that Kavanaugh is not in the same room as her.
So members of the Senate have denied Judge Kavanaugh his Sixth Amendment rights? Did America transform into a banana republic while I was asleep? This is utter and complete bullshit.
There is also a rumor going around they will force Kavanaugh to testify first, before Blasey-Ford’s rebuttal. When the fuck did this become the standard? SHE accused HIM! The burden of proof is on the prosecution, not the defense, which is why defendants never speak first. You fucking assholes are mostly lawyers besides politicians; have you paid no attention to the law?
And before you ask, no this is not a criminal hearing, per se, but it is a political trial. There is testimony, witnesses, and a de facto jury of senators, so there is no reason to deny the accused his constitutional rights, nor force him to testify first. How the fuck can he address the charges if they have not been formally read into the record?
This is fucking bullshit, and nothing more than the Democrats’ attempt to destroy an honorable man, all because they lost an election. If you still think the November midterms aren’t important, you are simply not paying attention.
Hold the vote, and get Judge Kavanaugh confirmed. The fucking Democrats aren’t going to vote for him, and the media will continue to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation whether they hold the vote or not. Show some fucking balls for a change, you useless GOP dickheads.
