WASHINGTON: Less than a month ago, the Atlantic magazine’s Quinta Jurecic assured never-Trumpers and the #Resistance that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, was “highly credible.”
To tell the truth, MSM Edition
Not long after, a New York Times editorial headline lamented, “G.O.P. Leaders Can’t Even Fake Respect for Christine Blasey Ford.” The editorial included a few choice words for the president,
“Leave it to Donald Trump to strip away the mask and reveal the troglodyte beneath.”
President Trump’s offense was to tweet:
“I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with Local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time and place!”
No equality here
Trump’s offense was to give Dr. Ford the same consideration he would a man: “If you make an incendiary claim, put up or shut up.”
But today’s fainting-couch feminists demands we set aside true sexual equality and simply believe Dr. Ford based solely on her genitalia. But this sends a contradictory signal to the one transmitted almost daily by the culture and the Democratic Party concerning gender fluidity in the age of exulted transgenderism.
Ford finds no one to back up her story
But it seems Trump isn’t the only one throwing cold water on Dr. Ford’s claim that drunk high school student Brett Kavanaugh groped and attempted to rape her, believing “he might inadvertently kill me.”
In her accusatory statements to the Washington Post, Dr. Ford insisted Kavanaugh schoolmate Patrick J. Smyth was a witness to the attack that allegedly took place at a party.
That was news to Smyth.
In what the Times would surely dub a “troglodyte” declaration to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Smyth wrote:
“I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she [Ford] has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.”
A Ford or an Edsel, not a Lincoln
Ford also said Mark Judge, a high school chum of Kavanaugh’s, was a witness to the attack three decades ago.
But troglodyte Judge had his troglodyte attorney dash off a contradictory letter to the Senate:
“Brett Kavvanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford’s letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes.”
Another so-called witness, Leland Ingham Keyser, a high school classmate of Ford’s, joined the growing list of troglodytes by distancing herself from Kavanaugh’s accuser, telling the Senate committee through her attorney:
“Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”
It’s worth noting that Keyser is the ex-wife of Democratic Party-political operative and former Fox News contributor, Bob Beckel. Back in 2000, when George W. Bush narrowly won the presidency in the Electoral College, Al Gore campaign aide Beckel sent private investigators to check into the backgrounds of Republican electors.
He told Fox News, “I’m trying to kidnap electors. Whatever it takes.” The blackmail caper proved a monumental failure.
Buying a lemon
The Brett Kavanaugh smear campaign launched by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, her unknown backers and her histrionic Democratic Senate supporters will likely fail once her testimony is thoroughly refuted by those “witnesses” listed above.
It turns out that the Democrats and their media cheerleading squad have bought an Edsel in Dr. Ford.
And that realization may require the nation’s furniture makers to increase the production of fainting couches to accommodate the millions of distressed damsels of modern American feminism.
Regarding those “negotiations” still underway with the accuser’s attorney(s), Senator Grassley (R-IA) has already postponed her proposed appearance before his Senate committee to provide testimony twice.
As of the publication of this column, the Ford Team has allegedly agreed she will appear before the U.S. Senate this Thursday in some way shape or form to provide her testimony. But… Wait for it! … Negotiations on the details of that alleged appearance are allegedly still underway.
Even the youngest grade schooler’s know a game of Keep Away when they see one. It’s time for the GOP to declare a Delay of Game penalty, move Kavanaugh through a committee vote and send his nomination to the Senate Floor.
