There are certain protections put into place by the Constitution and the laws of the land for those accused of crimes. One important protection is that the accused goes last. The defense presents their case last and makes the final argument. That’s how things work in the United States of America.
While Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is not on trial and has not been charged with a crime, he is definitely facing the court of public opinion as well as the Senate Judiciary Committee over claims by Christine Blasey Ford that he sexually assaulted her over three decades ago. There’s nothing that states his testimony must follow Ford’s, but it definitely should. He’s the one being accused. His fate is the one in question. His past is the one being challenged.
Ford’s legal team has set three terms they want met before she’ll sit before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She wants only the Senators to question her – no lawyers or aides. She doesn’t want Kavanaugh in the room when she testifies. Lastly, Kavanaugh should be questioned before her.
The first two stipulations are reasonable and even logical. If she is indeed a victim, she won’t want to badgered by a female aide or attorney and she probably never wants to be in the same room as Kavanaugh again. If she, her legal team, and/or Democratic leadership are using this accusation for purely political reasons, these first two stipulations also make sense. It’s better for optics if she’s questioned by powerful men and they want the cameras on her, not on Kavanaugh’s reactions to her testimony.
It’s the last stipulation that makes this seem totally political. There is no reasonable explanation outside of political manipulation for her to only testify after Kavanaugh goes first. If she’s telling the truth, her testimony wouldn’t change whether he goes before or after her. In the scenario where she truly is a victim of Kavanaugh, having him testify first is unorthodox, unnecessary, and unreasonable.
If, on the other hand, this is all being positioned for political maneuvering, it absolutely makes sense that the Democrats want her to speak last. In sales, negotiations, poker, and political manipulations, the party that goes first is at a disadvantage. They are forced to speculate rather than respond. This is why in court, the accused goes last. They must hear the evidence and claims against them in order to defend themselves.
Kavanaugh is the accused. He must be allowed to hear the accusations directly from the accuser before testifying in his own defense. The fact that Ford’s corner seems adamant about doing it all backwards is, to me, a very concerning indicator that this has nothing to do with the truth and everything to do with stopping Kavanaugh’s confirmation for purely political reasons.

Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s team lays out terms it wants for potential Senate interview, sources say | Fox News
Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to agree to certain terms before she sits down for a potential interview over her accusation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago, two sources told Fox News on Thursday night.
Among the terms: Only members of the committee — no lawyers — can question her; Kavanaugh cannot be in the room at the time; and Kavanaugh should be questioned first, before he has the opportunity to hear Ford’s testimony.
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!
