This is supposed to be a moment that was 36-years in the making. After not accusing her alleged attacker around the time of the attack, nor mentioning the incident to anyone for three decades, next Monday should be Christine Blasey Ford’s time to deliver a certain level of justice to the boy who derailed her life in high school.
At this point, that moment appears to be put on indefinite hold. Her lawyer has asked the impossible before she’ll testify – an FBI investigation from a Justice Department that has already made it clear it’s not their responsibility nor jurisdiction to investigate.
Here’s an important note before I proceed: I do not doubt Ford’s account. Whether or not it was Brett Kavanaugh who attacked her will likely never be known with a certainty, but she seems sincere in the details. Perhaps it was Kavanaugh. Perhaps she’s inserting Kavanaugh into a story for political reasons. Nobody knows for sure other than Ford, and even she is unclear about times and places surrounding the alleged incident. Regardless, I am proceeding with the belief that a young Christine Blasey was sexually assaulted in a way close to how she describes.
Now we come to the problem. Because Senator Dianne Feinstein waited so long, allegedly at Ford’s request and not because the timing was absolutely perfect for derailing Kavanaugh’s confirmation, we’re stuck with a very tight window. It’s unfortunate that Ford is now in a position to have six days to prepare for the brightest spotlight she could ever imagine. She’s going in knowing her testimony could have an effect on the abortion industry, gun owner rights, presidential privileges, and a judge’s lifetime worth of issues important to millions of Americans.
That’s if she testifies. If she doesn’t testify, the confirmation must proceed. Something as important as a Supreme Court justice’s seat cannot be held up over an uncorroborated accusation. Ford may be credible. Her story may be true. But if our government processes are proven to be so fragile that an accusation is enough to fundamentally shift the balance of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, then we’re in much bigger trouble than most people know.
This shouldn’t have to be said, but I’ll go ahead and say it. There have been ample opportunities to bring this to light. I’ve never suffered from the type of assault that she describes so I would not presume to understand the emotional stress it can put on people for decades, but the timing of this accusation and subsequent unwillingness to testify seems more like a stalling technique by the Democrats than a distraught victim who finally found the courage to come forward days before her attacker was made one of the most powerful men in the world.
I hope she testifies. It will give the Senate and America an opportunity to understand either the man who would be a Justice or the party trying desperately to stop him. But if she doesn’t testify, the confirmation must move forward.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
