Everyone believes Blasey Ford was sexually assaulted. However, the political bias of republicans precludes Ford remembered the one fact, the one image every sexual assault victim 'always' gets right, remembers with absolute clarity for all their lives. This one clear memory is the face and name of the person who crawled on top of them and threatened them with their erection. The clarity of this image will remain for all their lives and beyond if you believe in karma.

It is interesting and despicable and disheartening that so many republican women have come forward denying Fords truth telling, her memory. I am quite certain most of these morally corrupt, ideologically compromised women supporting Kavanaugh believe every single man who came forward and claimed sexual abuse long ago committed by the entrenched Catholic pedophile ring.

Finally, I really think most Republicans believe all of Fords testimony and simply do not care that Kavanaugh did this. They do not care because they are Republicans. The Republicans that appear to be unsure are not concerned about what is right rather about their careers--they so want a toady for corporate interests on the not so supreme court.

I am an ordinary citizen who for the first sixty years of his life was mostly disinterested in politics. Then George Bush and Dick Cheney intruded into my consciousness and I realized politics is important and determines who lives and who dies. (more...)

Nobody believes her.
Not even her friends.

Democrats are just so out of touch with even democrat voters.

You are blind to truth, i you believe this. But it is unimportant.

He lacks the temperament o be a lifelong appointment to the court.

He is who he is and everyone knows it, including former Suprm Court justice John Paul Stevens.

Justice Stevens further remarked that Kavanaugh showed clear bias in his rulings on the DC circuit and was not fit to be on the bench.

Do you truly believe the victims of sexual assault forget the names and faces of their rapists--even those likely tens of thousands of victims of the Catholic Church pedophile ring? Really?

I believe Blasey-Ford. I do know some women (and men) who do not, and they are not bad humans. They are just incredibly distrustful of Democrats, to the point that they can't accept Blasey-Ford's testimony. That's the thing: if Kavanaugh wasn't a R judge, they would probably be outraged at the assault, and furious at Kavanaugh. But because Trump nominated him, they view Blasey-Ford's testimony as an attack on Trump. Not saying it's right... But you have to have some understanding that the divisiveness is a game that Ds,R,s and multinational corporations play to keep the country divided and agitated. So it is up to us to have some understanding for one another.

Perhaps on some level I am not interested in 'they' are not bad people. Does anyone doubt that the thousands and thousands of boys/become men who were sexually assaulted so many years ago do not remember the names and faces of their sexual predators? I believe every single one remembers very, very clearly that one thing as does Mrs Ford.


Further, regarding 'bad people', I believe our spiritual evolvement, state of being, influences everything we do or do not do or think or not think and determines what and who we 'chose' to believe. It is these choices that make the difference as to whether we manifest in life as 'good' or 'bad'. If not what is the point of morality?


Regards,

Don Scotten

I saw an interesting photoshopped picture on a Republican site. It was an old movie poster of "To Kill A Mockingbird" with Gregory Peck and Sidney Poitier. You might remember (I had to look it up) that the film's plot was about a white woman who accused a black man of raping her. On her word alone, the accused man was lynched by the gullible (and racist, to be sure) townspeople. Anyway, the poster was changed so that in the background behind the two actors stood a crowd carrying "Believe the Woman" signs.

Granted, it's a job interview, not a trial, but shouldn't there still be a presumption of innocence requiring some evidence other than just the word of an accuser, no matter how plausible sounding?

"...shouldn't there still be a presumption of innocence..."

The answer is "YES!"

It may not be an actual trial in court, but that detail is not important here. There are laws against slander and libel that are supposed to guard against public defamation, and are intended to protect that very presumption of innocence outside a court.

The trouble with that, I suppose, would be that someone needs to sue someone else for slander, in order to attempt to reclaim the damage (which often is permanent). The onus is on the victim in this case to take it to court, and all the headaches that involves.

This does leave a little wiggle room for an active political character assassination campaign, where the people behind the propaganda are likely to get away with it.

Does one go to a job interview, hand the interviewer a list of bad references, and say, "Ignore them; I'm innocent until proven guilty?" LOL

Does one go to a job interview with a list of bad references?! Of course not!

Which illustrates the difference between a simple "job interview" and what is going on here. (LOL)

It is tragic that the pathetic lies of Dr. Ford are believed; it is tragic she was at the hearings at all.

I fully support and feel for any woman who is in anyway assaulted.

Dr. Ford wasn't assaulted; I hope in my lifetime she is forced to confess her lies set up by the Witch Feinstein.

She can't get the dates as to when this happened straight?
