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.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!

Allegedly, she is demanding a “full FBI Investigation”, which the FBI has twice stated it will not do.
I say, let’s give her what she is demanding by the ones in authority ~ordering~ the FBI to perform a complete investigation, of this Ford lunatic.
If Mrs Ford a pussy hat wearing activist was smart she wouldn’t testify as she had motive to accuse Kavanaugh, her parents lost a foreclosure case before Brett’s mom and now here is the pay-off her attorney is paid by Soros group just like a called it. All the accusers Mrs Ford and these Senators and Representatives should all be charged with conspiracy and false statements before congress: 18 U.S.C. §35. Imparting or conveying false information, and 18 U.S.C. § 1001 – Statements or entries generally
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—

(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or
(3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;
shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.
(b) Subsection (a) does not apply to a party to a judicial proceeding, or that party’s counsel, for statements, representations, writings or documents submitted by such party or counsel to a judge or magistrate in that proceeding.

(1) administrative matters, including a claim for payment, a matter related to the procurement of property or services, personnel or employment practices, or support services, or a document required by law, rule, or regulation to be submitted to the Congress or any office or officer within the legislative branch; or
(2) any investigation or review, conducted pursuant to the authority of any committee, subcommittee, commission or office of the Congress, consistent with applicable rules of the House or Senate.
