Once is Enough

Do we really need another rapist on the Supreme Court?  Okay okay, would-be rapist?  Violent sexual predator? Sexual harasser?

“He covered her mouth so she couldn’t scream . . . ” 

The victim was Christine Blasey, age 15, assaulted by a 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh at a high school pool party.  She thought he might accidentally kill her, he was choking her and he was so very drunk.  Fortunately, another boy, Brett’s underage drinking buddy Mark, jumped on the pair and broke up the assault.  Ford’s attorney, Debra Katz, told the Today show: “She believes that if it were not for the severe intoxication of Brett Kavanaugh, she would have been raped.

Today Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, 51, is a professor, research psychologist, and biostatistician.  She studied and taught at Stanford University.   Pepperdine too – just like Condi. But she had an extra obstacle to overcome.  

She has suffered from PTSD and sought therapy as a result of this attack, which is corroborated by her therapist.  She never wanted to revisit this incident, but could not sit by and watch her assaulter appointed to the Supreme Court.  She wrote Senator Feinstien when Kavanaugh’s name came up in July because she could not imagine this violent drunk abuser on the Supreme Court.  Then she hired an attorney and took a lie detector test to make sure her concerns were taken seriously and very reluctantly came forward publicly when there was no other way to pump the brakes on his whirlwind confirmation hearing.

The angry white male Senators called a hearing for next Monday, knowing that there is no time for any investigation by the FBI or any other entity. Just the way they like it.

And the drunken buddy – the witness to the attack?  Mark Judge is a now conservative author and has written a book about the alcohol-sodden culture of debauchery at their prep school.  The drunk driving, the blackouts.  Nice that he provided that written record.  Too bad Trump Inc. has zero vetting skills.  Also unfortunate that Mark Judge refuses to testify in front of the Senate.  He claims he has no memory of events as Dr. Ford described. Careful word choice there.

Hmmm….sounds like a question for the FBI.  Will the Senate Republicans allow it?  So far the magic 8 ball says . . . . unlikely  Speaking through her attorney Dr. Ford stated her willingness to cooperate with any Senate proceedings and would testify following the appropriate FBI investigation. Senator Feinstein issued a follow-up statement calling for such an investigation.  

What do you suppose, Truthseekers, are the chances either the White House or the Senate request the FBI reopen a probe into Bret Kavanaugh’s past? </crickets> 

Believe her or not, do not let the 36 year time span fool you.  That is creepy misogynistic Foxspin.  Trauma is traumatic when it happens.  And it’s still traumatic 3, 8, 26, and 50 years later.  Ask a Vietnam vet.  Or Iraq War.  And so on.

The attacks began immediately.  Orrin Hatch gave this multi-credentialed PhD the Anita “little bit nutty, little bit slutty” Hill treatment, declaring her “mixed up,” despite having never met her.  Lindsay Graham cast his doubts.  Oddly, The Donald was uncharacteristically restrained, even suggesting that a Kavanaugh fail wouldn’t be the end of the world.  

I wonder if his secret anonymous handlers are slipping him barbiturates.

But the rabid right wingers answered the whistle and sprang like hell hounds to fulfill her worst nightmare: hacking her email, impersonating her identity, threatening her life and the lives of her family members and friends.  She and her family are now in hiding.  

Let that soak in.  She is being attacked by more angry white men.  This is exactly why women don’t always come forward immediately, or at all.  Once is enough.

    Ha! Yeah Typical. “He didn’t really rape her” is now the standard as a character endorsement for Republicans. The current victim already has 3 strikes against her when it comes to The Pussy Grabber’s loyal cult of low-brow kooks and radical right assholes. She’s from California = liberal. Strike 1. She’s highly Educated = liberal Strike 2. She’s a potential obstacle in Trump’s scheme to load the courts with his swamp rats and fascists who will legislate from the bench for the next 30 years = liberal. Strike 3.

    I hate for the response of the evil filth she has received, but personally I would rather be DEAD than allow an evildoer or ANY flavor of predator or even a worthless bag of shit who thought they could get actually dare to get one over on me like this and get away with it. If I had children I would take all reasonable precautions but I would not hesitate for a MOMENT, to go after ANY cocksucker CRAZY enough to tangle with me. I am proud of this woman and surely she knows she’s doing the right thing. If ANY woman keeps silent in face of ANY wrongdoing or sexual misconduct SHE IS LETTING THE EVILDOER OR WRONGDOER WIN. WHY DOESN’T EVERYONE UNDERSTAND THIS!? I will be DEAD before I am complicit in being ANYONE’S VICTIM. I’d kill myself first. So god bless to Ms. Ford, it probably feels as a relief to her, to finally go on the offense over this situation, and take control of it for the first time, even though I’m sure she knows, the worthless Pigs on the Right will of course do everything in their power to undermine her and bury this. But I should think after 30 years as a mature woman she is shrewd and has a backbone, and expected no less when she decided to come forward. Every woman who comes forward in a situation of sexual assault and serial, significant harassment shows all other women in the same situation, but who are choosing comfort and weakness over honor and self-respect, what must be done, WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. You don’t suffer in silence! YOU FIGHT! And if you can’t, find somene to do it for you. People without honor, decency, or morals, laugh at the weakness of those they harm. I’ll kill myself before I’d EVER let that stand. Less weakness, MORE FIGHT!! The more we fight, the more we WIN! Sometimes you’ll lose, but eventually, you’ll win, and you’ll keep winning.
    So I’m very proud of this woman and I don’t think , if she has any brains and strength at all, that she would change at all.

    This entitled, upper class filthy RAT who gives zero FUCKS about ANYONE, probably not even his kids, is actually in line for a Supreme Court seat, and it’s so sad, but also fortunate, that she’s the only one that can seem to do anything about it.
    What a typical psycho, pure cold-blooded Right wing extremist he is. Anything that can serve to delay or hopefully block this worthless human being is SO worth it in every WAY. And I am sure Ms. Ford feels the same. What’s most important is that she receive a FULL and impartial inquest into everything she’s claimed and a fair chance to be heard. As you said Mike, there’s probably a –569 chance of that actually happening, but the Right wing scum cannot deny how they are trying to bury this, although they certainly will and the Fox News bots will believe it without question.
    If she gets half of the fair chance she deserves to present herself and have her claims be properly vetted by the FBI, she might just be the ONLY person that stop this worthless SON OF A BITCH from getting into ANOTHER virtually stolen Supreme Court seat that the Orange Chump has no RIGHT to appoint, considering the DISGUSTING way the first one was stolen from Obama and that he and all his sorry pals are under about 10 miles of investigation! And if that happens, well fuck me TWICE, this woman would suddenly become my new hero.

    Not now, NOT EVER. I mean, it’s just so beyond conceivability.
    I am proud of this woman for doing what I’m sure she’s wanted to do in one form or another for many years now, and surely she knows she’s doing the right thing. If ANY woman keeps silent in face of ANY wrongdoing or sexual misconduct SHE IS LETTING THE EVILDOER OR WRONGDOER WIN. WHY DOESN’T EVERYONE UNDERSTAND THIS!? It drives me NUTS when ANYONE refuses to go on the balls out attack after their attacker, or to at least TRY! If you are an adult you have NO EXCUSE not I will be DEAD before I am complicit in being ANYONE’S VICTIM. I’d kill myself first.

    Where are all the missing children that the GOP/KKK have kidnapped? Since the rape of women and pedophilia runs rampant through the GOP/KKK, I can’t help but wonder if those greedy evil bastards have sold them into the sex slave trade. I wouldn’t put it past them…………..
