Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus (False in one thing, false in everything)



Falsus in no falsus in omnibus False in one thing false in everything

The sordid edifice of the Kavanaugh allegations stands or falls as one unit.

In yesterday’s travesty of a confirmation hearing, Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) invoked the legal principle of Falsus in Uno, Falsus in Omnibus [false in one thing, false in everything] attempting to impugn the sterling reputation of Judge Kavanaugh. In Mr. Blumenthal’s instance, it was in regards to some ancillary issues in Brett Kavenaugh’s days in high school and yearbook comments. Presumably, if this were to go along any further, it would soon devolve down to his time in elementary school or his actions in the womb.

Shouldn’t we apply the ‘false in one thing, false in everything’ standard to all of these accusations?

Presumably each of the successive accusations were to replicate the pattern of the past where one person coming forward encouraged another and so on, inspiring the name of the ‘Me Too’ movement. Except in this case, each successive revelation became less and less credible, with a pattern emerging of the follow-on report breaking just as the previous one fizzled out. The problem for the Left is that this backfired on them. The trend of diminishing credibility calls into question the tenuous nature of all of the other accusations all the way back to the original.

The cringe inducing ‘Avenatti allegation’.

This one really sets the mark for the destruction of the credibility of all of these accusations. In retrospect, the fact that this seemed to fall off the face of the earth within a few hours speaks volumes. We’re supposed to believe a women in University would stay socially connected with high school students. Choosing to attend multiple parties where these nefarious activities were taking place instead of alerting the authorities. We’re also supposed to believe that these crimes would have gone unnoticed in 6 background investigations conducted by the FBI. Anyone who has undergone a security clearance investigation should instantly know this doesn’t even rise to the level of the smell test.

Successive allegations didn’t even meet that level of credulity, with anonymous reports of Judge Kavanaugh making an appearance as though he was some sort of bizarro superman bursting on the scene to wreck the day. Or others that cropped up and faded within a few hours like toadstools on a woodland trail.

The inconsistencies of the original accusation.

The second in the series of smears didn’t fair that well in the credibility department either. The accuser in this case admitted gaps in memory, only coming forward after 34 years and 6 days to relate her story of something somewhere that might have happened that somehow involved the accused.

Even the original accusation was bereft of details to avoid any of those pesky issues of consistency. But even as of yesterday the story was changing.

We are supposed to believe several contradictory ideas at one time. Beginning with that this was a very traumatic event, but she never told anyone about for at least 20 years. Then we are supposed to believe that certain details were seared into her memory. But extremely important details such as the time and place – details could help exonerate Judge Kavanaugh – were lost to the mists of time. While seemingly trivial, the fact that she tried to delay the hearing out of a fear of flying when she does this anyway also calls into question her veracity. Even CNN’s Tapper Argues There’s ‘No Contemporaneous Corroborating Evidence For Any Of The Charges’ Against Kavanaugh.

The Takeaway.

So, by the standard set by our comrades in the nation’s Socialist-Left, these allegations should be dismissed and Judge Kavanaugh rightly confirmed. The precedent that would be set by a failure to confirm this nomination is too horrible to contemplate.
