      So the ever-fluid Ford and her lawyers have laid the conditions under which she will testify:

      1. Doesn’t want outside counsel to question her (you know, because those 11 white men over 50 said they’d be happy to have a distinguished female attorney question her instead)

      2. Doesn’t want Kavanaugh in the room (well, no one ever said he would be).

      And here’s the kicker:

      3. Wants Kavanaugh to testify FIRST.

      And THAT will be how she can avoid a Senate appearance. There is no way that Kavanaugh, as the accused, can testify first. First of all, it goes against every tenet of fairness and jurisprudence (even if this isn’t a trial). Second, there will have been no previous testimony that brings any form of allegation that he can respond to.

      Her problem is that (and I really believe this) this letter was all part of a scheme. She was told before the letter was submitted that she would never be called upon to testify. Feinstein would release the letter after hearings. No one expected Grassley to agree to reopen them, since the facts and supporting evidence were nonexistent. Suddenly he says “hey we’ll let her testify” and suddenly they are working overtime for reason upon reason for her never to come before the Committee.

      It’s also worth noting that Kavanaugh was willing to appear before the Committee again the minute Grassley asked him. And HE’s the one who has had exactly one week to deal with these allegations; whereas Ford has had three months to get her house in order and still says she doesn’t have enough time.

      I wondered what that was all about. Too subtle for my bulldozer brain.

      A second front has opened up.

      Remember that book “Tiger Mom” by Amy Chua? She laid out a system for raising ‘perfect’ kids that either appalled people or had them cheering. What was missed in the bruhaha is that she’s a lawyer at Yale Law. And she is being accused of ‘grooming’ female candidates for Kavanaugh clerks.

      This is a two-fer. It gets this bitch, who refuses to infantilize females, out of the way, and it gets Kavanaugh’s transgressions into a more recent timeframe instead of the unknowable terrain of 35 yrs ago.

      Yale Law dean: Reports that professor groomed female clerks for Kavanaugh ‘of enormous concern’

      According to reports in The Guardian, the Huffington Post and Above the Law, Amy Chua, a professor at the law school, would advise students on their physical appearance if they wanted to seek a clerkship for Kavanaugh. Specifically, Chua would help potential applicants to have a “model-like” appearance.

      Eaglesoars knows what that means

      Eaglesoars does indeed. One of the finest moments of my life was getting kicked out of the place for trashing the Vice Principal’s office. I don’t want to mention her name but her initials were Elizabeth McDermott and the bitch pissed me off.

      Imagine my satisfaction when I found out the administrators 20 years later knew my name.

      Damn straight.

      I confess that I did not read the article. That said, there is an interesting theory that was proposed recently that suggests that both are responsible.

      This “New” theory points out the rather interesting fact that the volcanic eruption in question, (a series of “Trap” volcanic eruptions across Asia (Russia and India) just happen to be directly opposite of the chicxulub asteroid impact site. You can literally draw a line straight through the earth between the two sites. Impact crater on one side, volcanic bulge on the other.

      Did the Asian traps already exist prior to the chicxulub asteroid impact? Why yes they did. But at a fraction, i.e. 1/10th of the size. The two competing theories don’t actually compete. Scientists, being what they are, are basically arguing over semantics, one says its an apple, the other says its a sphere. Both are right, but neither will concede the others point.

      @ eaglesoars:

      That is about setting conditions that Grassley cannot agree to in any way that allows her to state that she therefore won’t testify.

      And Trump is right. This didn’t happen in the 60’s or early 70’s, when there was a different culture and girls were afraid. This was 1982. Hell, I had a kid try to feel me up at a party at Amy Bennett’s house when I was in high school in December of 1969 (see I remember the date/year at whose house it was). I didn’t tell my folks or report to cops. I told my brother, who was home from college for the holidays. He was more than happy to go visit the boy’s home and advise him that if he ever laid a hand on his sister again, the next time would involve a baseball bat, a back alley and no witnesses.

      This happened in 1982. The whole women’s movement had emerged. If this was more than horseplay, why DIDN’T she go to her parents or the authorities? He didn’t attend high school with her – she wouldn’t have had to see him every day. Nothing of her story makes sense.

      I don’t think so, I think he played that badly. It would have been better to say that he hoped she was reporting the death threats she says she’s been getting to law enforcement to avoid any confusion her failure to do so in the past has caused.

      I was our yearbook editor and by the time the faculty got done cutting everything I wanted to put in there I was left with nothing but head shots. We used The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test as our lode star, so to speak, but unfortunately the staff was accustomed to dealing with juvenile delinquents and had read the thing.

      Notice if you will that the one classmate who tried to give her story credence and claimed “everyone was talking about it” was herself not supported by another single classmate? So of course now we have her “corroboration” being exposed as a liar as well.

      Her only reason for not wanting to give any type of date is that she can’t be sure Kavanaugh doesn’t have an alibi.

      “He did it the last week of June 1982! I remember now!”
      “I was at Disney World. My family will vouch.”

      Amy Chua’s husband, Jeb, is also at Yale. They are ‘investigating’ him. They won’t tell him why or for what, just that they are.

      This place is one, gargantuan star chamber.

      Her husband is reportedly being investigated by Yale University – however the university has neither confirmed or denied the investigation.

      ‘In June, Yale informed me that it would conduct what it terms an ”informal review” of certain allegations, but that to preserve anonymity, I was not entitled to know any specifics. As a result, I do not know what I am alleged to have said or done. I was further advised that the allegations were not of the kind that would jeopardize my position as a long-tenured member of the faculty.

      No doubt that the Five Eyes Group all knew what was going on especially the UK who’s task it is to spy on the US internal politics and then report back to the whole Five Eyes participants who share the Intel. UK spied on the US; US spied on Canada; Canada spied on NZ; NZ spied on Australia; and Australia spied on the UK. Then everyone swapped and shared the total Intel produced. That was allows each member of Five Eyes to track and spy on their own citizens without breaking the laws on agencies not being allowed to target their own citizens.

      When a disruptor like Trump arrives the whole system is placed in peril and the UK who is tasked with watching the US shares all of the Intel amongst the Five Eyes members. When it’s dangerous to get caught using this system there is a Plan B where the gathered intel is transferred ‘unofficially’ and outside the normal channels of transfer.

      People like Alexander Downer the former Australian Cabinet Minister/ Australian High Commissioner to the UK / and sometime drinking buddy of shady characters has ‘form as a inside member of the One World Government / Bohemian Grove set. Downer was a scumbag when he was in government and a degenerate. Just ask him about his infamous high heels and net stocking issues he has!

      Juanita Broaddrick Offers To Testify If Kavanaugh Accuser Doesn’t
      Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978 while he was running for governor of Arkansas, says she will testify before the U.S. Senate if Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser will not.

      “Just a thought……If Christine Ford declines to be interviewed Monday…. I’m available to answer questions about my Rape by Bill Clinton,” Broaddrick tweeted this week in the midst of the sexual misconduct allegations which have plagued the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh.


    28. 28 | September 21, 2018 8:27 pm

      Oh dear God – her NEW excuse is that “she’s afraid to fly”.

      I guess when she was repressing the memories of that awful day, she also repressed her fear of flying and we’ve miraculously found out about it just now.

      Except – didn’t they OFFER to have her testify from California? U.S Attorney’s office in San Francisco has a conference room with a video hookup that can be used, no doubt.

      Next up – her deep rooted fear of BART trains, automobiles, public buses, ferry boats and the California Freeway system.

      But I think this has blown up in their face. They’ve shot their wad, out of ammo. Utter disruption of the gov’t is not what 80% of the people voted for, and will think twice about giving power to people who have blatantly attempted it and will pursue impeachment.

      It could very well happen which would be a shame as it is one of the strongest links in the Anglo-sphere. One used to be able to trust ‘family’ even if they sometimes acted a little roughly with the other siblings. We seemed to have drifter away from those times as the Anglo-sphere has been watered down with massed migrations.

      There is often a Big Brother – Little Brother competition in the Five Eyes. Many of the slights and offences was generated by the US using its power to pull the rest into line. Like the deal to push 40 broken down destroyers onto the Brits in 1940-41. The refusal of the British to release the 5 Australian Divisions sparking outrage from the Australian Prime Minister who suggested where Churchill could deposit his cigar and a unilateral withdrawal of Australian forces from the Middle East in 1942 to stem the Japanese invasion of Australia. The refusal of the US to share atomic secrets with the British who had to re-invent the bomb from first principles as Brit scientists returned from the US post war. To the harsh terms of US WWII loans to Britain that were only fully repatriated after 2000. To threats by the US to destroy the British economy in the 1960s if the British shared their nuclear secrets with Australia and Canada, to the use of US economic power to force Australia into a one side trade agreement where the US got full access to the Australian market in 2007 whereas Australia had to wait for a decade to access the US market in 2017.

      I could go on and on but there is plenty of angst between siblings inside the Five Eyes.

      White House Drafts Order To Look Into Google, Facebook Practices

      The White House has drafted an executive order for President Donald Trump’s signature that would instruct federal antitrust and law enforcement agencies to open investigations into the business practices of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc. and other social media companies.

      The order is in its preliminary stages and hasn’t yet been run past other government agencies, according to a White House official. Bloomberg News obtained a draft of the order.

      The document instructs U.S. antitrust authorities to “thoroughly investigate whether any online platform has acted in violation of the antitrust laws.” It instructs other government agencies to recommend within a month after it’s signed actions that could potentially “protect competition among online platforms and address online platform bias.”

      The document doesn’t name any specific companies. If signed, the order would represent a significant escalation of Trump’s antipathy toward Google, Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies, whom he has publicly accused of silencing conservative voices and news sources online.

      “Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices,” Trump said on Twitter in August. “Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others.”

      Social media companies have acknowledged in congressional hearings that their efforts to enforce prohibitions against online harassment have sometimes led to erroneous punishment of political figures on both the left and right, and that once discovered those mistakes have been corrected. They say there is no systematic effort to silence conservative voices.
